Awesome quality manual. You really saved my bacon with this one. Was looking for some specific information with regards to my "new" vintage VCR that didn't come with the owners manual. This site is truely a goldmine of available manuals. The quality of the scans are top notch.
Thank-you so much for this awesome manual. If you're looking for this Sony SL-HF400 owners manual, this is the one you NEED to buy. Definitely worth the money.
The manual was made available promptly. I is a clean scan of the original. I had no problem downloading it. The scan was well centered and cleanly formatted. It is as good a product as can be had without being the original document.
Received downlink in less then 8 hours, Item was in good copy condition, and told me how to program the clock timer. The price was very resonable, and the process was very automated and was GREAT to work with.
Fast service, document is OK. Thanks! Searched for it long time.

THE LOWER OVEN
Uses of the lower oven
The lower oven is the smaller of the two ovens. It is heated by elements in the top and bottom of the oven. It is designed for cooking smaller quantities of food. It gives especially good results if used to cook fruit cakes, sweet or savoury flans or quiche. The lower oven is also ideal for use as a warming compartment to warm dishes and keep food hot. Use a temperature setting of 80Â°-100Â° on the lower oven temperature control.
Hints and tips
There should always be at least 2.5cm (1") between the top of the food and the element. This gives the best cooking results and allows room for rise in yeast mixtures, Yorkshire puddings, etc. When cooking cakes, pastry, scones, bread, etc., place the tins or baking trays centrally below element. Ensure that food is placed centrally on the shelf and there is sufficient room around the baking tray/dish to allow for maximum circulation. Stand dishes on suitably sized baking trays to prevent spillage onto the oven base and to help reduce cleaning. The material and finish of the baking tray and dishes will affect the degree of base browning of the food. Enamelware, dark, heavy or nonstick utensils increase base browning. Shiny aluminium or polished steel trays reflect the heat away and give less base browning. DO NOT place dishes directly onto the oven base as it becomes very hot and damage may occur. DO NOT use the grill pan or meat tin as a baking tray as this will increase base browning of the food. Because of the smaller cooking space, lower temperatures and shorter cooking times are sometimes required. Be guided by the recommendations below. For economy leave the door open for the shortest possible time, particularly when placing food into a preheated oven.
Things to note
1. The lower oven neon will glow until the oven has reached the desired temperature and then go out. It will cycle ON and OFF periodically during cooking showing that the temperature is being maintained. 2. The control cooling fan will operate after a time. 3. The lower oven worls independently of the upper oven. 4. Dishes, tins or trays should not be placed directly on oven floor as it becomes very hot and damage will occur.
