To fit the second oven shelf
Only use the shelf with the solid metal plate
at the rear of the shelf in the second oven.
The shelf 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
• Arrange the shelves in the required
positions before switching the oven on.
Shelf positions are counted from the top
• Ensure that food is placed centrally on
the shelf and there is sufficient room
around the baking tray/dish to allow for
• Do not push dishes too far back as food
will burn if it overhangs the burner flame
• Stand dishes on a suitably sized baking
tray on the shelf to prevent spillage onto
the oven base and to help reduce
• The material and finish of the baking
tray and dishes used affect base
browning. Enamelware, dark, heavy or
non-stick utensils increase base
browning. Shiny aluminium or polished
steel trays reflect the heat away and
give less base browning.
• Do not place baking trays directly on
the oven base as it interferes with the
oven air circulation and can lead to
base burning; use the lower shelf
• For economy leave the door open for
the shortest possible time, particularly
when placing food into a pre-heated
Do not place cookware and cooking
pots with rough bases e.g. cast iron
on the oven door as damage to the
glass may occur.
