SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR CONVECTION OVEN.
- Always operate on an even flat surface.
- Avoid contact with the lid and glass bowl surfaces during and after use, as they will be hot.
- DO NOT touch the heating element or fan during use as they will be very hot.
- Always remove lid using the handle and ensure to place the hot lid correctly on the lid stand provided. To prevent heat damage never place the hot lid directly on the bench top.
- Use away from walls and curtains.
- Do not place any items on top of the oven whilst in use.
- Do not block or cover the air vents on the top, back or sides of the oven.
- Do not immerser the unit in water or any other liquid.
- Ensure that the cord is kept well away from the heating element during use.
BEFORE FIRST USE
- Remove all accessories and shipping materials packed inside the oven.
- Wash all accessories in warm soapy water. Wipe the inside of the oven with a damp cloth or sponge. Dry with paper towels and ensure the unit is dry before use.
- Place the oven on a flat counter or other stable surface. DO NOT OPERATE ON THE SAME POWER OUTLET WITH ANOTHER APPLIANCE.
- When operating the oven, keep at least 10 cm of space on all sides of the oven for adequate air circulation.
- Before connecting the appliance, be sure the timer control is in the “OFF” position.
- When using for the first time, set the temperature knob to 125ºC and the timer to 10 minutes. This will burn off any residue from the manufacturing process.
NOTE: A small amount of smoke and odour may be detected. This is normal for a new oven and should disappear after few minutes of use.
Convection oven cooking
With circulating hot air, the convection oven cooks food quickly, efficiently and uses much less energy. The hot air method of cooking ensures an even distribution of heat around the food. One of the effects of this is that the surface of food such as meat is quickly sealed, allowing it to retain the succulence of its original flavour.
The lid contains heating element and fan so it is very hot. Never place the lid directly onto any benchtop or other surface. Always place the lid into the lid holder as shown inb Fig.1. Ensure the electrical cord is facing down towards the bench top. Do not use the electrical cord to lift the lid.
Cooking with the extension ring
The extension ring is preferred when you need to cook something of a larger size, such as a whole chicken. Place the extension ring on the top of the bowl, to make the bowl bigger and give it the extra volume needed for cooking.
The convection oven will not work unless the safety handle is fully ‘clicked’ by folding it in downward position. To do this, press the safety button on the handle to lower into place. If you need to remove the lid during cooking, lifting the safety handle will stop the heater and the turbo fan. Replace the lid and place the safety handle in the down position to resume cooking.
Sets the cooking temperature from 125°C to 250°C.
The timer dial is marked in minutes and has a reminder bell, which sounds when the cooking time is completed. When setting the manual timer, always turn the timer past the time you wish to set, before turning the timer back to the correct time.
BASIC COOKING FUCNTION
Pre-heat the oven to 220-230°C, then bake at around 170-190°. If baking biscuits or scones, we recommend you use the multi-purpose baking dish to allow air to circulate. For cakes, we recommend ring tins which allow cakes to cook through to the center and checked that they fit in the oven before using. Always place the cake tin on the low rack, never directly onto the bottom of the bowl. Silicone bakeware is not suitable to use in the Oven.
Roast at around 200-250°C. You can roast meats, vegetables, potatoes and wedges. We suggest lining the bottom of the bowl under the rack with aluminium foil turned up at the edges. This will catch drippings and make cleaning easier. Roasts will need to be turned at least once in the cooking cycle unless they are very small. For vegetables, it may be necessary to remove meat and let it stand whilst the vegetables finish cooking.
Note: Meat with bones will take longer than a boneless roast. Oven bags are not suitable to use in the Oven.
Grill at around 220-250°C. Grill meats, seafood, vegetables and your favorite cheese topping. For grilling, the oven needs to be very hot and the food must not be too cold. Using cold food for grilling and for any of the other cooking functions, can extend cooking times.
Note: You will not achieve the same amount of browning as you would on a barbecue or in a frypan. A small amount of oil sprayed or wiped onto the food will help in browning.
Toast at around 180-220°C. Toast sweet and savory breads, pastries, rolls and sandwiches. You can also toast cheese melts and pizzas.
Use these cooking times as a guide. Cooking times and temperatures will vary depending on factors such as weight, cut of the food and your personal taste. Similar to your built-in oven in your kitchen, you may need to adjust cooking times and temperatures to your requirements. Monitor the food as it’s cooking and modify accordingly. It is important to cook mince meat, sausages and poultry until well done. No pink should be visible, and juices should run clear.
Note: For meats weighing from 1-1.5kg, set temperature at 200°C

- Prepare the bowl. While cooking the surface of the bowl will be considerably hot, be sure to place the appliance on a heatproof surface.
- Place the rack in the bowl and place food in the centre of the rack to receive best air circulation. Allow 1cm space between the food and bowl.
- Cover the bowl with the lid. Ensure it is sealed correctly.
- Connect the cord plug into a mains power outlet socket.

Surfaces in contact with food should be cleaned regularly to avoid cross contamination from different types of food. The use of hot clean water with a mild detergent is advisable when dealing with surfaces that come into contact with food. Correct food hygiene practices should always be followed at all times to avoid possibility of food poisoning / cross contamination.
