After connecting to the mains, the display 0:00 will blink. Press the time button until the clock face symbol appears below the flashing 12:00. Use the rotary button to alter the time of day. Touch the button to confirm.

BEFORE USING THE OVEN FOR THE FIRST TIME

Select CircoTherm® or Top/bottom heat function and turn to 200°C for 1 hour for the initial burnoff. Please ensure that all packaging has been removed and the accessories have been washed in warm soapy water to remove any grease.

USING THE TIMER

To use the minute minder press the time button to show a bell symbol. Use the rotary button to enter the time, the oven will set this time after a few seconds delay, then start counting down.

An acoustic signal will sound until it is cancelled. This function will work independently of the oven so you can use it to remind you, whenever you like.

TO SET THE OVEN FOR AN AUTOMATIC START/STOP COOKING PERIOD

Select the cooking function and press the time button to show the arrow symbol and use the rotary button to enter the cooking duration (how long the food needs to cook for). Press the time button again to the arrow symbol and use the rotary button to select the end time (the time you want the food to be ready for).

Times given below are meant as a guide only and may vary according to personal taste. All meats should be rested for 5-10 minutes before serving. This allows the juices to settle. During this time the internal temperature will increase slightly.
