The Fan Oven

The Fan Oven
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 at page 18. 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.
1. Switch the oven on.
2. Press the Oven Function Control button once.
3. If necessary adjust temperature setting using
the "Increase" or "Decrease" buttons.
THINGS TO NOTE
q
The oven light will come on when the oven is
switched on.
The cooling fan will operate continually during
cooking.  It may run on after the oven is switched
off to keep the controls cool. This is quite normal.
NOTE
The action of the cooling fan will depend on how long
the oven has been used and at what temperature. It
may not switch on at all at lower temperature settings
nor run on where the oven has only been used for a
short time.
