Whilst this is a photo copy, and some of the pages are a little askew, it was all readable and intact. A real bonus finding an old manual for a classic piece of kit that no other site had.
It was easy done, and I got exactly what I was looking for.

Grilling must be carried out with the oven door closed. The grill pan handles must be removed from the pan during grilling. Always use oven gloves to remove and replace the grill pan handles. Ensure that you support the grill pan when removing it from the oven. Adjust the grid and grill pan runner position to allow for different thicknesses of food. Position the food close to the element for faster cooking and further away for more gentle cooking. Preheat the grill on a full setting for a few minutes before sealing steaks or toasting. Adjust the heat setting and the shelf as necessary, during cooking. Most foods should be placed on the grid in the grill pan to allow maximum circulation of air to lift the food out of the fats and juices. Food such as fish, liver and kidneys may be placed directly on the grill pan, if preferred. Food should be thoroughly dried before grilling to minimise splashing. Brush lean meats and fish lightly with a little oil or melted butter to keep them moist during cooking. Accompaniments such as tomatoes and mushrooms may be placed underneath the grid when grilling meats. When toasting bread, we suggest that the top runner position is used. The food should be turned over during cooking, as required. The grill element is controlled by the thermostat. During cooking, the grill cycles on and off to prevent overheating.
Pizza Oven Function
The bottom element provides direct heat to the base of pizzas, quiches or pies, while the fan ensures air is circulated to cook the pizza toppings or pie fillings. To obtain the best results use the lower shelf levels.
The oven fan operates without heat and circulates the air, at room temperature, inside the oven. This increases the speed of defrosting. However, please note that the temperature of the kitchen will influence the speed of defrosting. This function is particularly suitable for defrosting delicate food which could be damaged by heat, e.g. cream filled gateaux, iced cakes, pastries, bread and other yeast products. Cover food with a lid, aluminium foil or plastic film to prevent drying out during defrosting. ALWAYS COOK THOROUGHLY IMMEDIATELY AFTER THAWING. Frozen food should be placed in a single layer when ever possible and turned over half way through the defrosting process. Only joints of meat and poultry up to 2 kg. (4 lb.) are suitable for defrosting in this way.
Warning! - Do not place objects on the bottom of the oven and do not cover it with aluminium foil while cooking, as you can damage the enamelled surfaces and the food you are cooking. Always place pans, heat-resisting pans and aluminium foils on the oven shelves. Warning! - Be careful when you insert and extract the grid and the drip tray from the oven in order not to damage the enamelled surfaces of the oven cavity.
Select a maximum temperature of 200Â°C when using the Thernal Grill Function. Thermal grilling offers an alternative method of cooking food items normally associated with conventional grilling. The grill element and the oven fan operate alternately, circulating hot air around the food. The need to check and turn the food is reduced. Thermal grilling helps to minimise cooking smells in the kitchen. With the exception of toast and rare steaks, you can thermally grill all the foods you would normally cook under a conventional grill. Cooking is more gentle, therefore food generally takes a little longer to cook with thermal grilling compared with conventional grilling. One of the advantages is that larger quantities can be cooked at the same time. Prepare foods in the same way as for conventional grilling. Brush lean meats and fish lightly with a little oil or butter to keep them moist during cooking.
Cooking times vary according to the type of food to be cooked, its consistency, and volume.We suggest that you take particular note of your first cooking experiments with the oven, since operating in the same conditions for the same dishes you will of course obtain similar results. Only experience will enable you to make the appropriate changes to values given on charts.
