TO FIT THE MAIN OVEN SHELVES, HINTS AND TIPS, AUTOMATIC COOKING

TO FIT THE MAIN OVEN SHELVES
The shelves should be fitted with the straight rods
uppermost on the frame and the forms towards the
back of the oven. If not fitted correctly the anti-tilt and
safety stop mechanism will be affected.
HINTS AND TIPS
l
Arrange the shelves in the required positions
before switching the oven ON. Shelves are
numbered from the bottom upwards.
l
When cooking more than one dish in the fan
oven, place dishes centrally on different shelves
rather than cluster several dishes on one shelf.
This will allow the heat to circulate freely for the
best cooking results.
l
When batch baking one type of food, e.g. Victoria
sandwich cakes, those of similar size will be
cooked in the same time.
l
It is recommended that when baking larger
quantities, the shelf positions should be evenly
spaced to suit the load being cooked. A slight
increase in cooking time may be necessary.
l
Do not place dishes or baking trays directly on
the oven floor as it interferes with the oven air
circulation and can lead to base burning; use the
lower shelf position. However non critical dishes
can be placed on the oven base when more
space is required.
l
The use of excessively high temperatures can
cause uneven browning. It may be necessary to
reduce temperatures slightly. Refer to the
recommendations given in the oven cooking
charts on pages 22 and 23.
l
DO NOT use the cranked shelf from the grill in
the main oven.
AUTOMATIC COOKING
If you use the automatic timer to cook food in the
main oven be guided by the recommendations
below.
*
It is advisable to leave food in the oven for as
short a time as possible before automatic
cooking.
*
When cooking is complete do not leave food to
stand in the oven, but remove and cool it quickly
if the food is not to be consumed immediately.
*
Always ensure food in the oven is covered if its
not possible to remove food immediately after
cooking.
