CHOICE OF BURNER
The burner must be chosen according to the diameter of the pans and energy required. For optimum efficiency uso a wok or pan no smaller than 230 mm diameter.
Saucepans with handles which are excessively heavy, in relationship to the weight of the pan, are safer as they are less likely to tip. Pans which are positioned centrally on burners are more stable than those which are offset. It is far safer to position the pan handles in such a way that they cannot be accidentally knocked.
When deep fat frying fill the pan only one third full of oil.DO NOT cover the pan with a lid and DO NOT leave the pan unattended.In the unfortunate event of a fire, leave the pan where it is and turn off all controls.Place a damp cloth or correct fitting lid over the pan to smother the flames.DO NOT use water on the fire. Leave the pan to cool for at least 30 minutes.
GRATE FOR SMALL PANS (fig. 27)
This grate is to be placed on top of the (smaller) auxiliary burner when using small diameter pans, in order to prevent them from tipping over.
CORRECT USE OF THE TRIPLE-RING BURNER (figs. 28, 29)
- The flat-bottomed pans are to be placed directly onto the pan-support.
- To use the WOK, you must place the wok stand in the CORRECT position as shown in figs. 28 – 29.
IMPORTANTThe special grille for wok pans (fig. 29) MUST BE PLACED ONLY over the pan-rest for the triple-ring burner.
COOKING WITH MULTIFUNCTION OVEN
Attention: The oven door becomes very hot during operation. Keep children away.
As its name indicates, this is an oven that presents particular features from an operational point of view. In fact, it is possible to insert 8 different programs to satisfy every cooking need. The 8 positions, thermostatically controlled, are obtained by 4 heating elements which are:
- Bottom element
- 1725 W (@230 V)1878 W (@240 V)
- Top element
- 1725 W (@230 V)1878 W (@240 V)
- Grill element
- 2500 W (@230 V)2722 W (@240 V)
- Circular element
- 2500 W (@230 V)2722 W (@240 V)
NOTE: Upon first use, it is advisable to operate the oven (at the maximum temperature) for 60 minutes in the position, for 30 minutes in the position and for another 15 minutes in the position to eliminate possible traces of grease on the heating elements. Clean the oven and accessories with warm water and washing-up liquid.
WARNING: The door is hot, use the handle. During use the appliance becomes hot. Care should be taken to avoid touching heating elements inside the oven.
Heating and cooking in the MULTIFUNCTION oven are obtained in the following ways:
- a. by normal convectionThe heat is produced by the upper and lower heating elements.
- b. by forced convectionA fan sucks in the air contained in the oven muffle, which sends it through the circular heating element and then sends it back through the muffle. Before the hot air is sucked back again by the fan to repeat the described cycle, it envelops the food in the oven, provoking a complete and rapid cooking. It is possible to cook several dishes simultaneously.
- c. by semi-forced convectionThe heat produced by the upper and lower heating elements is distributed throughout the oven by the fan.
- d. by radiationThe heat is irradiated by the infra red grill element.
- e. by radiation and ventilationThe irradiated heat from the infra red grill element is distributed throughout the oven by the fan.
- f. by ventilationThe food is defrosted by using the fan only function without heat.
THERMOSTAT KNOB (fig. 31)To turn on the heating elements of the oven, set the function selector knob on the desired program and the thermostat knob onto the desired temperature. To set the temperature, it is necessary to make the knob indicator meet the chosen number. The elements will turn ON or OFF automatically according to the energy need which is determined by the thermostat. The thermostat indicator light on the control panel will illuminate when the oven is switched on and turns off when the oven reaches the correct temperature. The light will cycle on and off during cooking.
FUNCTION SELECTOR KNOB (fig. 30)Rotate the knob clockwise to set the oven for one of the following functions:
OVEN LIGHTBy turning the knob onto this setting we light the oven cavity. The oven remains alight while any of the functions is on.
TRADITIONAL CONVECTION COOKINGThe upper and lower heating elements are switched on.

VENTILATED GRILL COOKINGThe infra-red ray grill and the fan are on.The heat is mainly diffused by radiation and the fan then distributes it throughout the oven. Use with the oven door closed and the thermostat knob must be regulated between 50°C and 200°C maximum.It is necessary to preheat the oven for about 5 minutes.For correct use see chapter “GRILLING AND AU GRATIN”.Note: It is recommended that you do not grill for longer than 30 minutes at any one time. Attention: The oven door becomes very hot during operation. Keep children away.Recommended for: For grill cooking when a fast outside browning is necessary to keep the juices in, i. e. veal steak, steak, hamburger, etc.
CONVECTION COOKING WITH VENTILATIONThe upper and lower heating elements and the fan turn on.The heat coming from the top and bottom is diffused by forced convection.The temperature must be regulated between 50°C and the maximum temperature with the thermostat knob.Recommended for: For foods of large volume and quantity which require the same internal and external degree of cooking; for ie: rolled roasts, turkey, legs, cakes, etc.
HOT AIR COOKINGThe circular element and the fan are on. The heat is diffused by forced convection and the temperature must be regulated between 50°C and the maximum temperature with the thermostat knob. It is not necessary to preheat the oven.Recommended for: For foods that must be well done on the outside and tender or rare on the inside, i. e. lasagna, lamb, roast beef, whole fish, etc.
DEFROSTING FROZEN FOODSOnly the oven fan is on. To be used with the thermostat knob on ” ” because the other positions have no effect. The defrosting is done by simple ventilation without heat.Recommended for: To rapidly defrost frozen foods; 1 kilogram requires about one hour. The defrosting times vary according to the quantity and type of foods to be defrosted.
The external parts of the appliance become hot during operation. Keep children well out of reach.
STERILIZATIONSterilization of foods to be conserved, in full and hermetically sealed jars, is done in the following way:
- a. Set the switch to position .
- b. Set the thermostat knob to position 185°C and preheat the oven.
- c. Fill the dripping pan with hot water.
- d. Set the jars onto the dripping pan making sure they do not touch each other and the door and set the thermostat knob to position 135°C.
When sterilization has begun, that is, when the contents of the jars start to bubble, turn off the oven and let cool.
Set the switch to position and the thermostat knob to position 150°C. Bread becomes fragrant again if wet with a few drops of water and put into the oven for about 10 minutes at the highest temperature.
To obtain classical roasting, it is necessary to remember:
- that it is advisable to maintain a temperature between 180 and 200°C.
- that the cooking time depends on the quantity and the type of foods.
SIMULTANEOUS COOKING OF DIFFERENT FOODS
The MULTIFUNCTION oven set on position and gives simultaneous heterogeneous cooking of different foods. Different foods such as fish, cake and meat can be cooked together without mixing the smells and flavours.
This is possible since the fats and vapors are oxidized while passing through the electrical element and therefore are not deposited onto the foods.
The only precautions to follow are:
- The cooking temperatures of the different foods must be as close to as possible, with a maximum difference of 20°C – 25°C.
- The introduction of the different dishes in the oven must be done at different times in relation to the cooking times of each one.
The time and energy saved with this type of cooking is obvious.
USE OF THE GRILL
Preheat the oven for about 5 minutes. Introduce the food to be cooked, positioning the rack as close to the grill as possible. The dripping pan should be placed under the rack to catch the cooking juices and fats.
Grilling with the oven door closed.Do not grill for longer than 30 minutes at any one time.CAUTION: The oven door becomes very hot during operation. Keep children well out of reach.
GRILLING AND “AU GRATIN”
Grilling may be done using the grill+fan setting, in this setting the hot air completely surrounds the food that is to be cooked, to give a more even and rapid cooking process.
Set the temperature knob between 50°C and 200°C maximum, preheat the oven, then simply place the food on the grid. Close the door until grilling is complete.
Adding a few dabs of butter before the end of the cooking time gives the golden “au gratin” effect. Grilling with the oven door closed.
Do not grill for longer than 30 minutes at any one time.
CAUTION: The oven door becomes very hot during operation. Keep children well out of reach.
To cook, before introducing the food, preheat the oven to the desired temperature. When the oven has reached the desired temperature, introduce the food, control the cooking time and tum off the oven 5 minutes before the theoretical time to recuperate the stored heat.
Temperatures are approximate as they vary depending on the quality and amount of food. Remember to use ovenproof dishes and to adjust the oven temperature during cooking if necessary.
RECOMMENDED COOKING TEMPERATURE
N.B. For fan ovens reduce the temperature by 10-20°C. For any dish taking one hour or over to cook, reduce the cooking time by 10 minutes per hour.
* Shelf positions have been counted from the top of the oven to the base. A fan oven creates more even temperature throughout, therefore the shelf positions are not as critical.
