USES OF THE MAIN FAN OVEN
The oven is heated by an element around the fan situated behind the back panel. The fan draws air from the oven
and the element heats the air which circulates in the oven via the vents in the back panel. The advantages of fan
oven cooking are:
The fan oven quickly reaches its temperature, so it is not usually necessary to preheat the oven. Without
preheating however, you may find you need to add an extra 5-10 minutes on the recommended cooking times.
For recipes needing high temperatures, e.g. bread, pastries, scones, soufflés etc., best results are achieved if the
oven is preheated first. For best results when cooking frozen or cooked chilled ready meals always preheat the
Fan oven cooking generally requires lower temperatures than conventional cooking. Follow the temperatures
recommended in the chart on page 24. As a guide reduce temperatures by about 20°C - 25°C for your own
recipes, using a conventional oven.
The fan oven cooks evenly on all shelf levels, especially useful when batch baking.
