THE MAIN OVEN
The fan oven is particularly suitable for cooking larger
quantities of food.
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 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 preheat the oven first.
Fan oven cooking generally requires lower
temperatures than conventional cooking. Follow the
temperatures recommended in the cooking chart. As
a guide reduce temperatures by 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.
