Genuine Toshiba owner's manual. Couldn't really ask for more. And written in understandable English in contrast to a few recent experiences I have had with manuals for other equipment other than Toshiba but made in China and written in "Chinglish"!
I purchased a vintage Sony mixer off eBay and within the hour was able to locate and purchase the manual for it.I mean really,where else can you find a manual for a product made in 1983!? It was easy to find and purchase/download the manual I needed.I will use this site again for other equipment I have! Great site!
It`s full copy of a service manual from url http://www.philips.owner-manuals.com/PM3216-service-manual-PHILIPS.html

Care of catalytic liners
Catalytic liners destroy splashes of food and fats when the oven temperature is raised to around 220Â°C. To aid this process it is a good idea to run the oven for an hour or two per week, without food, to ensure continued good performance from the Catalytic liners.
Hints and Tips
Â• Manual cleaning of the Catalytic liner is not recommended. Damage will occur if soap impregnated steel wool pads, aerosol cleaners and any other abrasives are used. Slight discolouration and polishing of the Catalytic surface may occur in time. This does not affect the Catalytic properties in any way. Follow the recommendations in Â“Cooking to reduce soilageÂ”
Cooking to reduce soilage
Cook at the recommended temperatures. Higher temperatures during roasting will increase soilage. Try cooking at lower temperatures for an increased length of time, you will save energy and often the joint is more tender. Use minimal, if any, extra oil or fat when roasting meat; potatoes only require brushing with fat before cooking. Extra fat in the oven during roasting will increase splashing and soilage. It is NOT necessary to add water to the meat tin when roasting. The water and the fat juices from the joint create excessive splattering during cooking, even at normal temperatures, as well as causing condensation. Covering joints during cooking will also prevent splashing onto the interior surfaces; removing the covering for the last 20-30 minutes will allow extra browning, if required. Some large joints and turkeys especially benefit by this method of cooking, allowing the joint to cook through before the outside is overbrowned. Do use the roasting tin. During roasting, the fat from the joint will be contained beneath the trivet and therefore prevent it from splattering onto the 'Catalytic' liner.
