Description of the appliance
Features
Oven controls In addition to operating the various cooking programmes to bake, roast and grill, the electronic controls on models with a clock/timer also offer the following features: ­ Clock display ­ Minute minder ­ Timer to automatically switch cooking programmes off, or on and off ­ Settings can be customised Cooling system As soon as the oven is switched on, a cooling fan is automatically engaged. The cooling fan mixes hot air from the oven cavity with cool room air before venting it out into the kitchen through vents located between the appliance door and the control panel. The cooling fan will continue to run for a while after the oven has been switched off to prevent any humidity building up in the oven, on the control panel or on the oven housing unit. When the temperature in the oven has fallen sufficiently, the cooling fan will switch off automatically. PerfectClean treated surfaces The following surfaces are all treated with PerfectClean enamelling: ­ Oven interior ­ Runners ­ Baking tray ­ Grill pan ­ Rack PerfectClean enamelled surfaces have very good anti-stick properties and are much easier to keep clean than conventional enamel, if cleaned regularly. See "Cleaning and care" for more information. Catalytic enamelled surfaces The back panel, roof liner and side liners (if fitted) are coated with dark grey catalytic enamel. Soiling from oil and fat is burnt off these surfaces when very high temperatures are used in the oven. This makes it easier to keep inaccessible areas of the oven clean. See "Cleaning and care" for more information. Retractable controls Depending on model, the controls are retractable at the 0 position. Press them to release or retract them. Do not push them in from any other position as this would break them.

Description of the appliance
Oven interior lighting The oven lighting is located either in the oven roof or in the right-hand side panel, depending on model. Catalyser Models H 4160 and H 4260 have a catalyser fitted into the oven's ventilation system. It filters fat from the escaping vapours and thus reduces cooking smells.

Accessories
The following accessories are supplied with this oven. These and other accessories are also available to order from the Miele Spare Parts Department, your Miele Dealer or via the Internet (depending on country). See "Extra accessories" further on in this booklet for more details. Baking tray, grill pan and rack The baking tray, grill pan and rack are fitted with non-tip safety notches which prevent them being pulled right out when they only need to be partially pulled out.

Energy efficiency rating according to EN 50304
These appliances are rated energy efficiency class A in accordance with EN 50304. Tests were carried out using: ­ Fan plus on ovens H 4120 to H 4250. ­ Gentle bake on ovens H 4160 and H 4260.

When pushing the tray, pan and rack back in, always ensure that the safety notches are at the rear of the oven (see illustration). The tray, pan and rack can then only be taken out of the oven by raising them upwards and then pulling them out.

Description of the appliance
Roasting filter The roasting filter must be fitted in front of the fan when cooking anything fatty, or where food is likely to splatter, e.g. when open roasting or grilling meat. or roasting. The juices from the food being cooked collect under the anti-splash tray. This prevents them from spitting and making the oven dirty. The juices can then be used for making gravy and sauces. Handle (depending on model)

The droplets of fat caught up in the circulating air are deposited on the roasting filter. This helps to keep the oven and the area behind the interior back panel cleaner. Do not use the roasting filter when baking. This would increase the times needed for baking and give uneven browning results. Anti-splash tray (depending on model)

The handle makes it easier to take the baking tray, grill pan and rack out of the oven, or to put them into it. The two prongs at the top go inside the pan, rack or tray and the U-shaped supports underneath.

Hob
For models with integrated hob controls a separate set of instructions is supplied with the hob, covering its installation and use. The anti-splash tray should be placed in the deep-sided grill pan when grilling

Warning and Safety instructions
This appliance complies with all relevant legal safety requirements. Improper use of the appliance can, however, present a risk of both personal injury and material damage. To avoid the risk of accidents and damage to the appliance, please read these operating instructions carefully before installation and before using it for the first time. They contain important notes on installation, safety, operation and care of the appliance. Keep these instructions in a safe place and pass them on to any future user. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.

Technical safety
Before connecting the appliance to the mains supply, make sure that the voltage and frequency correspond to the rating on the data plate, otherwise the appliance could be damaged. Consult a competent person if in doubt. The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed when continuity is complete between it and an effective earthing system which complies with local and national safety regulations. It is most important that this basic safety requirement is present and regularly tested, and where there is any doubt the household wiring system should be inspected by a qualified electrician. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for the consequences of an inadequate earthing system (e.g. electric shock). The appliance must be built in before operation to ensure that no electrical components are accessible. Never open the casing of the appliance. Tampering with electrical connections or components and mechanical parts is highly dangerous to the user and can cause operational faults.

Correct usage
This appliance is intended for domestic use to cook food, and in particular to bake, roast, defrost, cook, dry fruit etc, and to grill. Any other usage is at the owner's risk and could be dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for damage caused by incorrect or improper use of the appliance. This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.

========12========

Warning and Safety instructions
Installation, maintenance and repair work may only be carried out by a suitably qualified and competent person in accordance with national and local safety regulations. Repairs and other work by unqualified persons could be dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for unauthorised work. If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by a Miele approved service technician in order avoid a hazard. During installation, maintenance and repair work, the appliance must be disconnected from the mains electricity supply. The appliance is only completely isolated from the electricity supply when: ­ the mains fuse is withdrawn, ­ or the screw-out fuse is removed (in countries where this is applicable), ­ or it is switched off at the isolator. Ensure that current is not supplied to the appliance until after maintenance or repair work has been carried out. Do not connect the appliance to the mains electricity supply by an extension lead. Extension leads do not guarantee the required safety of the appliance (e.g. danger of overheating). This equipment may only be used in mobile installations such as ships, caravans, aircraft etc. if a risk assessment of the installation has been carried out by a suitably qualified engineer. In countries where there are areas which may be subject to infestation by cockroaches or other vermin, pay particular attention to keeping the appliance and its surroundings in a clean condition at all times. Any damage which may be caused by cockroaches or other vermin will not be covered by the appliance guarantee.

Use
Caution, danger of burning. High temperatures are produced by the oven. Great care should be taken to ensure that small children do not touch the appliance when it is being used. Children's skin is far more sensitive to high temperatures than that of adults. External parts of the oven such as the door glass, handle vent and control panel can become quite hot. For cookers with a hob, remember that the cooking zones on the hob also get very hot. Turn pan handles inwards to prevent children from pulling pans over. Danger of burning or scalding. Children should not be left alone or unattended in an area where an oven is in use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the oven or play with it. Do not store items of interest to children in cabinets above an oven. Children climbing on to the oven to reach these could be seriously injured.

13


========13========

Warning and Safety instructions
Use oven gloves when placing food in the oven, turning or removing it and when adjusting oven shelves etc. in a hot oven. When working with "Conventional" heating or when grilling, the element in the roof of the oven and the roof liner become very hot, and there is a danger of being burnt. Do not use plastic containers. These melt at high temperatures and could damage the oven. Do not heat up unopened tins or jars of food in the oven. Pressure can build up and they may explode, resulting in injury or damage. Do not push pots and pans around on the oven floor, as this could damage the surface. Do not lean or sit on an open oven door, or place heavy items on it. This could damage the appliance. The oven door can support a maximum load of 15 kg. To prevent the risk of damage when closing the oven door, hold the handle firmly and do not let go of it until it is shut. Make sure that nothing gets trapped between the door and the oven. Cover any food which is left in the oven to be kept hot. Any moisture in the food could lead to corrosion damage in the oven. This also prevents the food from drying out. If you wish to complete a cooking process using the residual heat in the oven, do not switch the appliance off. Leave the function selector at the position set and turn the temperature selector to the lowest setting. Do not switch the appliance off until the food has been removed. Moisture in the oven could lead to condensation forming on the control panel and surrounding kitchen furniture and drops of moisture collecting under the worktop. Condensation can: ­ damage the housing unit / worktop. ­ lead to corrosion in the oven. On models fitted with a catalyser, it could also result in deposits remaining in the catalyser, causing an unpleasant smell to arise the next time the appliance is switched on. Bake larger frozen products, such as pizzas, on baking paper on the rack itself or in the pizza pan (see "Extra accessories"). Placing them on the baking tray or in the grill pan can cause the metal to distort, and this distortion will increase with each subsequent use. Frozen food such as oven chips or croquette potatoes can, however, be cooked on the baking tray or in the grill pan.

Warning and Safety instructions
Never add water to food on a hot baking tray or grill pan or directly onto food in a hot oven. The steam created could cause serious burns or scalding and the sudden change in temperature can damage the enamel. Never line the floor of the oven with aluminium foil when using Conventional heat A, Gentle bake x or Rapid heat up Ä. Do not place a dish, tin, baking tray or grill pan on the floor of the oven. If using a grill pan made by a different manufacturer, make sure that there is a gap of at least 6 cm between the bottom of the pan and the floor of the oven. If these instructions are not observed the bottom heat will be blocked. This can cause permanent damage to the floor of the oven. Protective aluminium foil panels are available in retail outlets which are supposed to protect the oven cavity from soiling and reduce the need for cleaning. If used, cooking and baking times will increase considerably. They can also cause damage to the appliance (e.g. by blocking the heat).

General notes
Never leave the appliance unattended when cooking with oil or fats, as these are a fire hazard if allowed to overheat. Do not use the oven to heat up the room. Due to the high temperatures radiated, objects left near the oven could catch fire. Always ensure that food is sufficiently cooked or reheated. Many factors will affect the overall cooking time, including the size and amount of food, its temperature, changes to the recipe and the shape and size of cooking container. Some foods may contain micro-organisms which are only destroyed by thorough cooking at temperatures over 70 °C for a minimum of 10 minutes. Therefore when cooking or reheating foods, e.g. poultry, it is particularly important that food is fully cooked through. If in doubt select a longer cooking or reheating time. It is important that the heat is allowed to spread evenly throughout the food being cooked. This can be achieved by stirring and/or turning the food during cooking.

========15========

Warning and Safety instructions
When using kitchen appliances connected to sockets near the oven, ensure that the cable cannot get trapped in a hot oven door, which could melt the cable insulation. Danger of electric shock. Never use a steam cleaner to clean the appliance. The steam could reach electrical components and cause a short circuit. If using alcohol in your recipes, high temperatures can cause the alcohol to vaporise and even to ignite on the hot heating elements. Alcohol should be burnt off before the dish is placed in the oven to avoid this danger.

Disposal of your old appliance
Before throwing an old appliance away it must first be made unusable. Switch off and disconnect it from the power supply. This should be done by a competent person. If connected to an isolator switch, disconnection should be carried out by an electrician to avoid the risk of accidents. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for damage caused by non-compliance with these Warning and Safety instructions.

Cleaning and heating up for the first time
Before use, please remove - any stickers from the floor of the oven, baking trays, grill pan etc. - the protective cork discs from the sides of the oven. - any protective foil from the oven front. See "Cleaning and care" for more information. Before using the oven for the first time ­ take all accessories out of the oven and wash them. ­ then heat the oven up once with nothing in it. New ovens have a slight smell on first use and this will dissipate the smells before you use it to cook any food. ^ Before heating it up it is a good idea to wipe the oven out with a damp cloth first. This way any dust or bits of packaging that may have accumulated in the oven cavity during storage and unpacking will be removed. ^ Press and release the function selector and the temperature selector. ^ Turn the function selector to Rapid heat-up Ä. ^ Use the temperature selector to set the highest temperature. Heat the empty oven up for at least an hour. Please ensure that the kitchen is well ventilated during this operation. Close doors to other rooms to prevent the smell spreading throughout the house. On models with a clock/timer, you can set this procedure to finish automatically, see the appropriate section. ^ Wait until the oven has cooled down to room temperature. ^ Then wipe out the oven cavity with a solution of hot water and a mild detergent and then dry it thoroughly with a clean cloth. Leave the oven door open until the oven interior is completely dry.

Description of the oven systems
Fan plus Y
This system works by the circulation of heated air. A fan situated on the back wall of the oven draws in the air, heats it over a ring element and blows the heated air through the carefully spaced openings in the rear panel of the oven. The oven does not usually need to be pre-heated as the heated air reaches the food straight away. Exception: Pre-heating may be necessary for foods which cook in less than 20 minutes and for foods such as puff pastry and yeast mixtures where instant heat is required to make them rise quickly. When using Fan plus, you can bake and roast on different levels at the same time. Lower temperatures can be used than with Conventional heating, as the Fan plus system circulates the heated air throughout the oven.

Conventional A
With the conventional method of heating, radiant heat is directed onto the food from above and below. It is useful where a fairly long cooking time is required and a deep colour and good rise are needed. It is usually necessary to pre-heat the oven when using this method.

Gentle bake x
With Gentle bake the grill and the bottom heating elements will be switched on. It is suitable for bakes and gratins where a crispy finish is required.

Grill n
Pre-heat the grill for at least 5 minutes with the oven door closed before grilling. The grill is ready for use when it glows red a few minutes after being switched on. Grill with the oven door closed.

Rapid heat-up Ä
With Rapid heat-up, the grill element, bottom heating element and fan all switch on at the same time so that the oven reaches the required temperature as quickly as possible. The temperature indicator light will go out when the pre-selected temperature has been reached. The function selector must then be turned to the function you wish to use for cooking.

Fan grill N
Pre-heat the grill for at least 5 minutes with the oven door closed before grilling. The hot air from the grill is distributed over the food by the fan on the rear wall of the oven. This enables a lower temperature to be selected than for conventional grilling. Grill with the oven door closed.

Using the oven
Controls
The oven is operated with the function selector and the temperature selector. Function selector ­ Light H/v For switching on the oven light independently. Depending on model, oven settings can also be changed when the function selector is at this position. See "Altering oven settings". ­ Conventional A For long, slow baking or traditional recipes, e.g. fruit cake, casseroles. ­ Gentle bake x For cooking dishes that require a crispy finish, e.g. bakes and gratins. ­ Grill n For grilling fish and cuts of meat such as chops, steaks, and kebabs. Grill with the oven door closed. ­ Rapid heat-up Ä For reducing the heating up time and for pre-heating the oven. Also useful for cooking ready made meals. ­ Fan plus Y For baking or cooking on several levels at the same time. ­ Fan grill N For grilling thick cuts, e.g. rolled meat, poultry. Grill with the oven door closed. Do not attempt to turn it all the way round in either direction as this will damage the selector.

Use the function selector to select the required oven function. The function selector can be turned clockwise or anti-clockwise.

Using the oven
^ Place the food in the oven. ^ Turn the function selector to the required function. The oven interior light comes on. ^ Use the temperature selector to set the required temperature. The oven starts to heat up and the cooling fan switches on. ^ Take the food out of the oven when it is ready. Turn the function selector and the temperature selector back to the "0" position. The cooling fan will continue to run for a while after the oven has been switched off to prevent any humidity building up in the oven, on the control panel or on the oven housing unit. When the temperature in the oven has fallen sufficiently, the cooling fan will switch off automatically. On models with a clock/timer, the oven can be set to switch off, or to switch on and off, automatically. See appropriate section.

The temperature can be freely selected within the given range. The temperature selector must only be turned in a clockwise direction as far as it will go and then back again. Do not attempt to turn it the wrong way, or all the way round, as this will damage the selector. The temperature indicator light y will come on as soon as a temperature is selected. It remains alight while the oven is heating up. When the pre-selected temperature is reached, the heating element switches itself off. When the temperature falls below that selected, the heating

Rapid heat-up
Rapid heat-up Ä can be used to: ­ pre-heat the oven, ­ heat up ready-meals. Pre-heating the oven Most dishes can be placed in a cold oven. They will then make use of the heat produced during the heating-up phase. It is only necessary to pre-heat the oven in certain instances. With Fan plus Y ­ Pre-heat the oven for foods which cook in less than 20 minutes and for foods such as puff pastries and yeast mixtures where instant heat is required to make them rise quickly. With Conventional A heating ­ Pre-heat the oven where a fairly long cooking time is required and a deep colour and good rise are needed. Do not use Rapid heat-up Ä to pre-heat the oven when baking delicate items such as pizzas, biscuits and small cakes. Otherwise they will get brown too quickly. Rapid heat-up Ä is not suitable for traditional baking or cooking. To pre-heat the oven: ^ Select Rapid heat-up Ä. ^ Use the temperature selector to set the required temperature. The oven will start to heat up. ^ When the temperature indicator light y goes out for the first time, set the oven function you require for continued cooking or baking, and place the food in the oven. Cooking ready-meals Rapid heat-up Ä can be used on its own for cooking ready-meals such as pizzas, lasagne, garlic bread etc. See "Cooking ready meals". When using Rapid heat-up to cook ready meals you do not need to change to another function during cooking.

Baking
The following settings are recommended for baking: ­ Fan plus Y ­ Conventional A

Fan plus Y
Several shelf levels can be used at the same time for baking. The recommended positions are: 1 tray = 1st shelf level from the bottom 2 trays = 1st and 3rd shelf level from the bottom 3 trays = 1st, 2nd and, 4th shelf level from the bottom When baking moist biscuits, cakes or bread, do not bake on more than two levels. Remember to remove the roasting filter from in front of the opening on the back wall. Otherwise baking times will be longer and results uneven. With Fan plus Y, the baking temperature required is lower than with Conventional A. Refer to the baking charts and cookery book supplied with your oven.

Bakeware
For the best baking results make sure that you chose bakeware in a material suitable for the particular heating system. Fan plus Y Most types of heat-resistant tins or dishes are suitable. Conventional A The following baking tins give an even, brown result: Dark metal, aluminium or enamel tins with a matt finish. Heat resistant glass and ceramic dishes can also be used. Avoid bright, shiny metal tins. These reflect heat, which means that the heat does not penetrate to the food effectively, resulting in uneven or poor browning. In some cases the cakes might not cook properly. Place the tin or dish directly on the non-tip rack in the oven. Use one shelf position only.

31


========31========

Baking
Conventional A
Only use dark baking tins with a matt finish. Bright, shiny tins give an uneven or pale result, and in some cases the cakes might not cook properly. Place tins centrally on the rack on shelf level 1 or 2. Older recipes and cookery books New guidelines (German standard DIN 44547 has been replaced by European standard EN 60350) have led to slight adjustments in oven temperature settings. However, if using an older recipe or cookbook, set the oven temperature for Conventional 10° C lower than that recommended. The cooking duration does not need to be changed.

Tips on baking
Refer to the baking chart and the cookery book supplied with this oven for suggestions of temperatures, shelf levels and times. With their anti-stick surface, PerfectClean baking trays and grill pans do not need to be greased or lined with baking parchment for baking. Baked goods are easily removed when done. Baking parchment is only necessary when baking: ­ Anything with a high salt content (e.g. pretzels, bread sticks), as the PerfectClean surface can be damaged by the sodium used in the dough; ­ Meringues or biscuits with a high egg-white content, which are more likely to stick. When baking cakes with fresh fruit toppings and tall sponge cakes place the tin in the grill pan to catch any spillages and keep the oven cleaner.

Place cakes in rectangular tins with the longer side across the width of the oven as shown, for optimum heat distribution and even results. Always use shelf level 1 for cakes in tins.
32


========32========

Baking
Frozen food When baking frozen products such as cakes, pizza and baguettes, use the lowest temperature quoted on the manufacturer's packaging. Place such items on baking parchment directly on the rack or in the pizza pan (extra accessory). Placing them on the baking tray or in the grill pan can cause the metal to distort. This distortion would increase with subsequent use. Small items of frozen food such as oven chips or potato croquettes can be cooked on a baking tray or in the grill pan. Place them on baking parchment and select the lowest temperature quoted on the manufacturer's packaging. Turn several times during cooking. Handling and preparing food correctly is essential for maintaining good health. Only bake cakes, pizza, chips etc until they are golden brown. Do not overcook them. To achieve even results without over-browning the food ­ always select the lowest temperature given in the recipe/cooking instructions on the packaging. Do not set a temperature higher than that recommended. Increasing the temperature may reduce the cooking time, but will lead to uneven browning. In some cases food might not cook properly. ­ Check if the food is cooked at the end of the shortest time quoted. To check if a cake is ready, insert a wooden skewer into the centre. It is ready if the skewer comes out clean, without dough or crumbs sticking to it. The cooling fan will continue for a while after switching off the oven. Always remove all accessories, trays and racks which are not being used, when using the oven, to keep the cleaning of trays etc. to a minimum.

Roasting
We recommend using Fan plus Y for roasting. Conventional A can also be used. Exception: Pre-heat at the temperature suggested when roasting beef.

Shelf levels
Fan plus Y: When roasting on the rack or in an open tin make sure the roasting filter is fitted in front of the fan in the back of the oven before starting. Use shelf level 1 for roasting. Exception: With Conventional A use shelf level 2 for - poultry up to 1 kg, - roast beef, - and fish.

Temperature
Please refer to the Roasting chart for suggested temperatures. Do not select a higher temperature than that advised. The meat will become brown, but will not be cooked properly. With Fan plus Y, a temperature setting of 40 °C lower than for Conventional A is sufficient. For cuts which weigh 3 kg or more, select a temperature approx. 10 °C lower than that given in the roasting chart. Roasting will take longer at the lower temperature, but will be more even. For roasting directly on the rack, select a temperature that is about 20 °C lower than for roasting in a covered pot. When roasting on the rack, place the rack and anti-splash tray over the grill pan.

We recommend roasting in a covered pot or using a roasting bag, as ­ this ensures that sufficient stock remains for making gravy. ­ and the oven stays cleaner, too.

Roasting containers
Any heat-proof containers can be used: roasting pans with a lid, made from earthenware, cast iron, ovenproof china or glass, and roasting bags are all suitable. Miele also offer Gourmet oven dishes with lids which are ideal for roasting and cooking larger quantities of food. Place the roasting pan on the rack into a cold oven.

Roasting
Older recipes and cookery books New guidelines (German standard DIN 44547 has been replaced by European standard EN 60350) have led to slight adjustments in oven temperature settings. However, if using an older recipe or cookbook, set the oven temperature for Conventional 10° C lower than that recommended. The cooking duration does not need to be changed. Pot roasting Season the meat and place in the pot. Add some knobs of butter or margarine or a little oil or cooking fat. Add about 1 /8 litre of water when roasting a large, lean joint of meat (2-3 kg) or roasting poultry with a high fat content. Roasting on the rack

Calculating the roasting time
The roasting time will depend on the type of meat, the size and thickness of the cut. The traditional British method is to allow 15 to 20 minutes per lb/454 grammes, according to type of meat, plus approx. 20 minutes, adjusting the length of time as roasting proceeds to obtain the required result. Place the anti-splash tray (if fitted) in the grill pan and then place the rack on top. Season the meat and place on the rack. Add a little fat or oil to very lean meat, or place a few strips of bacon on the top. Roasting poultry For a crisp finish, baste the poultry ten minutes before the end of cooking time with slightly salted water. Frozen meat Do not roast deep frozen meat. Meat should be thoroughly defrosted before roasting.

Tips on roasting
Browning only occurs towards the end of roasting time. Remove the lid about halfway through the roasting time if a more intensive browning result is required. After the roasting process is finished take the roast out of the oven, wrap in aluminium foil and leave to stand for about 10 minutes. This helps retain juices when the meat is carved.

Grilling
Grilling on the rack
Grill with the oven door closed. If you grill with the door open, hot air will escape from the oven instead of being cooled automatically by the cooling fan. Control elements on the oven could get hot. Danger of burning.

Grill settings
Grill n For grilling thin cuts and for browning food. Put the roasting filter in front of the fan in the back of the oven when grilling. Fan grill N For grilling larger items, e.g. rolled meat, poultry. Put the roasting filter in front of the fan in the back of the oven when grilling. ^ Assemble the rack on the grill pan and use the anti-splash tray (if fitted) as illustrated. ^ Place the food on the rack. ^ Select the grill setting and set a temperature. ^ Pre-heat the grill for at least 5 minutes with the door shut before grilling. ^ Place the grill pan under the grill and shut the door. For thin cuts use shelf level 3 or 4 For thicker cuts use shelf level 1 or 2 ^ Most items should be turned half way through cooking.

Preparing food for grilling
Clean, wipe dry and season with pepper and herbs. Do not season meat with salt before grilling as this draws the juices out. Add a little oil if necessary. Do not use other types of fat as they can get too dark, burn and cause smoke. Clean fish in the normal way. To enhance the taste, add a little salt or squeeze a little lemon juice over the fish.

Grilling
Temperature
For thin cuts of meat (e. g. chops or steak). . . maximum (n) For grilling larger items, (e. g. rolled meat, poultry) . . . . . 240 °C See the grill chart for more information. To grill thicker pieces of food more gradually after an initial high temperature, continue grilling at a lower temperature setting to allow the food to cook through to the centre.

Tips on grilling
It is best to grill food of a similar thickness at the same time so that the grilling time for each item does not vary too greatly. One way of finding out how far through a piece of meat has been cooked is to press down on it with a spoon: ­ If there is very little resistance to the pressure of the spoon, it is still red on the inside ("rare"). ­ If there is some resistance the inside will be pink ("medium"). ­ If there is great resistance, it is throughly cooked through ("well done").

Grilling times
­ Flat pieces of fish and meat usually take about 6 ­ 8 minutes per side, depending on their texture. ­ Thicker pieces take a little longer. ­ With rolled meats allow approx. 10 minutes per cm diameter.

Defrosting
You can also use the oven for defrosting. To defrost select Fan plus Y with a maximum temperature of 50 °C. For defrosting meat and delicate foods, use the lowest possible temperature (30 °C). Please note: ­ Where possible remove the packaging and put the food to be defrosted on a baking tray or into a dish. ­ All meat and poultry should be fully defrosted before cooking. Do not use the liquids from defrosting. ­ When defrosting poultry, put it on the rack over the grill pan to catch the defrosted liquid so that the meat is not lying in this liquid. It is particularly important to observe food hygiene rules when defrosting poultry. Do not use the liquid from the defrosted poultry. Pour it away, and wash the tray, the sink and your hands. Danger of salmonella. ­ Fish does not need to be fully defrosted before cooking. Defrost so that the surface is sufficiently soft to take herbs and seasoning. Do not refreeze food once it has thawed.

Cooking
We recommend using the following oven settings: ­ Fan plus Y ­ Conventional A Cooking containers made of ovenproof glass, porcelain, china, and earthenware are all suitable. They should have heat-resistant handles and knobs. Roasting bags can also be used. ^ Put the rack in on shelf level 1 and place the dish on the rack. ^ Select your cooking function and set a temperature. Fan plus Y . . . . . . . . . . . 170 - 190 °C Conventional A . . . . . . . . . 180 - 200 °C Cooking durations Casseroles . . . . . . . . . . . . 70 - 90 mins. Gratins/bakes . . . . . . . . . . 40 - 60 mins.

Cooking ready-meals
The Rapid heat-up Ä function can be used on its own for cooking ready-meals (see chart) such as pizza, lasagne, garlic bread, etc. ^ Select Rapid heat-up Ä. ^ Select a temperature. ^ When the temperature indicator light y goes out, place the dish in the pre-heated oven. You do not need to select another function for cooking. Observe recommended temperatures, cooking times and position in the oven given on the manufacturer's packaging. Only use one level of the oven when cooking ready-meals using this function. If more than one shelf level is required, select Fan plus Y. Cook frozen desserts and pizza on baking paper on the rack rather than on a baking tray or in the grill pan. Cooking large frozen items on a baking tray or in the grill pan can cause the metal to distort. This distortion would increase with each subsequent use. Frozen foods such as oven chips or croquette potatoes can, however, be cooked on the baking tray or in the grill pan.

Tips
Cover dishes which are to be cooked in their own juice and/or steam, e.g. potatoes or vegetables, so that they do not dry out. If you do not have a lid, use aluminium foil or damp cooking parchment. Cook without a lid when a crusty finish or topping is required, e.g. for meat or au gratin dishes. You can also stack one pot on top of another. Invert the lid of the bottom pot and place the top pot on it. Place any dish which needs to be browned on top.
