Using the Fan Oven

13
The air inside the oven is heated by the element
around the fan situated behind the back panel. The
fan circulates hot air to maintain an even temperature
inside the oven.
The advantages of cooking with this function are:

Faster Preheating
As the fan oven quickly reaches temperature, it is
not usually necessary to preheat the oven
although you may find that you need to allow an
extra 5-7 minutes on cooking times. For recipes
which require higher temperatures, best results
are achieved if the oven is preheated first, e.g.
bread, pastries, scones, souffles, etc.

Lower Temperatures
Fan oven cooking generally requires lower
temperatures than conventional cooking.
Follow the temperatures recommended in the
chart on page 14. Remember to reduce
temperatures by about 20-25
°
C for your own
recipes which use conventional cooking.

Even Heating for Baking
The fan oven has uniform heating on all runner
positions. This means that batches of the same
food can be cooked in the oven at the same time.
However, the top shelf may brown slightly
quicker than the lower one.
This is quite usual. There is no mixing of flavours
between dishes.
