I purchased the unit from a private party and the original owners manual was not available. Having the ability to download it was extremely helpful and clarified operating the equipment immensely. This is a complicated unit and without the manual I would not have been able to maximize it's potential. Thank you.

HINTS AND TIPS
l Arrange the shelves in the required positions
before switching the oven ON. Shelves are numbered from the bottom upwards.
l When cooking more than one dish in the fan
oven, place dishes centrally on different shelves rather than cluster several dishes on one shelf, this will allow the heat to circulate freely for the best cooking results.
l When batch baking one type of food, e.g.
Victoria sandwich cakes, those of similar size will be cooked in the same time.
l It is recommended that when baking larger
quantities the shelf positions should be evenly spaced to suit the load being cooked. A slight increase in cooking time may be necessary. DO NOT place cookware and cooking pots with rough bases e.g. cast iron on the oven door as damage to the glass may occur.
l DO NOT place baking trays directly on the
oven floor as it interferes with the oven air circulation and can lead to base burning; use the lower shelf position. However, non-critical dishes may be placed on the oven base when more space is required.
l The use of excessively high temperatures can
cause uneven browning. It may be necessary to reduce temperatures slightly. Refer to the recommendations given in the oven cooking chart see page 21.
l Do use the trivet in the meat tin to prevent fat
splashing and keep oven soilage to a minimum.
