WARNING

When properly cared for, your new appliance has been designed to be safe and reliable. Read all instructions carefully before use. These precautions will reduce the risk of burns, electric shock, fire, and injury to persons. When using kitchen appliances, basic safety precautions must be followed, including those in the following pages.

Proper Installation and Maintenance Have the installer show you the location of the circuit breaker or fuse. Mark it for easy reference. This appliance must be properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician. Connect only to properly grounded outlet. Refer to Installation Instructions for details. This appliance is intended for normal family household use only. It is not approved for outdoor use. See the Statement of Limited Product Warranty. If you have any questions, contact the manufacturer. Do not store or use corrosive chemicals, vapors, flammables or nonfood products in or near this appliance. It is specifically designed for use when heating or cooking food. The use of corrosive chemicals in heating or cleaning will damage the appliance and could result in injury. Do not operate this appliance if it is not working properly, or if it has been damaged. Contact an authorized servicer. Do not obstruct oven vents. Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in this manual. Refer all servicing to an authorized servicer. In the event of an error the display flashes and beeps continuously. Disconnect appliance from the power supply and call an authorized servicer.

WARNING

When removing the door make sure oven is cool and power to the oven has been turned off before removing the door. Failure to do so could result in burns.

The oven door is heavy and fragile. Use both hands to remove the oven door. The door front is glass. Handle carefully to avoid breaking. Grasp only the sides of the oven door. Do not grasp the handle as it may swing in your hand and cause injury or damage. Failure to grasp the oven door firmly and properly could result in personal injury or product damage. Lay the door on a flat smooth surface so that the door cannot fall over. Failure to do so may result in personal injury or damage to the appliance.

WARNING

To avoid injury from hinge bracket snapping closed, be sure that both levers are securely in place before removing door. Also, do not force door open or closed - the hinge could be damaged and injury could result.

WARNING

Make sure the appliance and lights are cool and power to the appliance has been turned off before replacing the light bulb(s). Failure to do so could result in electrical shock or burns. The lenses (if equipped) must be in place when using the appliance. The lenses (if equipped) serve to protect the light bulb from breaking. The lenses (if equipped) are made of glass. Handle carefully to avoid breaking. Broken glass can cause an injury.

WARNING

Light socket is live when door is open if main power supply is not turned off.

Fire Safety

WARNING

NEVER cover any slots, holes or passages in the oven bottom or cover an entire rack with materials such as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks air flow through the oven. Aluminum foil linings may also trap heat, causing a fire hazard.

If materials inside an oven or warming drawer should ignite, keep door closed. Turn off the appliance and disconnect the circuit at the circuit breaker box.

WARNING

Use this appliance only for its intended use as described in this manual. NEVER use this appliance as a space heater to heat or warm the room. Doing so may result in overheating the appliance. Never use the appliance for storage.

9 IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING

TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY TO PERSONS IN THE EVENT OF A GREASE FIRE, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING: a. SMOTHER FLAMES with a close-fitting lid, cookie

sheet, or metal tray, then turn off the burner. BE CAREFUL TO PREVENT BURNS. If the flames do not go out immediately, EVACUATE AND CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT.

b. NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN You may be burned.

c. DO NOT USE WATER, including wet dishcloths or towels a violent steam explosion will result.

d. Use an extinguisher ONLY if: - You know you have a Class ABC extinguisher, and

you already know how to operate it. - The fire is small and contained in the area where it

started. - The fire department is being called. - You can fight the fire with your back to an exit.

Burn Prevention DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR SURFACES OF OVEN - Heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in color. Interior surfaces of an oven become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing, potholders, or other flammable materials contact heating elements or interior surfaces of oven until they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the appliance may become hot enough to cause burns. Among these surfaces are oven vent openings, surfaces near these openings and oven doors. Exercise caution when opening the appliance. Standing to the side, open the door (or drawer) slowly and slightly to let hot air and/or steam escape. Keep your face clear of the opening and make sure there are no children or pets near the unit. After the release of hot air and/or steam, proceed with your cooking. Keep doors shut unless necessary for cooking or cleaning purposes. Do not leave open doors unattended. Do not heat or warm unopened food containers. Build-up of pressure may cause the container to burst and cause injury. Use caution when cooking foods with high alcohol content (e.g. rum, brandy, bourbon) in the oven. Alcohol evaporates at high temperatures. There is a risk of burning as the alcohol vapors may catch fire in the oven. Use only small quantities of alcohol in foods, and open the oven door carefully. Always place oven racks in desired location while oven is cool. Always use oven mitts, when the oven is warm. If a rack must be moved while oven is hot, do not let potholder contact the heating elements.

CAUTION

To avoid possible injury or damage to the appliance, ensure rack is installed exactly per installation instructions and not backwards or upside down.

Always use dry potholders. Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let potholder touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth. Secure all loose garments, etc. before beginning. Tie long hair so that it does not hang loose, and do not wear loose fitting clothing or hanging garments, such as ties, scarves, jewelry, or dangling sleeves.

Child Safety When children become old enough to use the appliance, it is the responsibility of the parents or legal guardians to ensure that they are instructed in safe practices by qualified persons. Do not allow anyone to climb, stand, lean, sit, or hang on any part of an appliance, especially a door, warming drawer, or storage drawer. This can damage the appliance, and the unit may tip over, potentially causing severe injury. Do not allow children to use this appliance unless closely supervised by an adult. Children and pets should not be left alone or unattended in the area where the appliance is in use. They should never be allowed to play in its vicinity, whether or not the appliance is in use.

CAUTION

Items of interest to children should not be stored in an appliance, in cabinets above an appliance or on the backsplash. Children climbing on an appliance to reach items could be seriously injured.

Cleaning Safety Keep oven free from grease build up.

WARNING

RISK OF BURNS ; The appliance will become very hot on the outside during the cleaning function. Never touch the appliance door. Allow the appliance to cool down. Keep children away from the appliance.

Cookware Safety NOTICE: Do not place food directly on oven bottom. Follow the manufacturers directions when using cooking or roasting bags.

9 IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

Proposition 65 Warning: This product may contain a chemical known to the State of California, which can cause cancer or reproductive harm. Therefore, the packaging of your product may bear the following label as required by California:

Note: IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE: The California Safe Drinking and Toxic Enforcement Act requires the Governor of California to publish a list of substance known to the state to cause cancer, birth defect or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to such substances. The burning of gas cooking fuel and the elimination of soil during self-cleaning can generate small amounts of carbon monoxide. The fiberglass insulation in Self Clean ovens gives off very small amounts of formaldehyde during the first several cleaning cycles. California lists formaldehyde as a potential cause of cancer. Carbon monoxide is a potential cause of reproductive toxicity. Exposure to these substances can be minimized by: 1. Providing good ventilation when cooking with gas. 2. Providing good ventilation during and immediately

after self-cleaning the oven. 3. Operating the unit according to the instructions in this

manual.

7

Causes of Damage NOTICES Accessories, foil, greaseproof paper or ovenware on

the cooking compartment floor: Do not place accessories on the cooking

compartment floor. Do not cover the cooking compartment floor with

any sort of foil or greaseproof paper. Do not place ovenware on the cooking

compartment floor if a temperature of over 122 F (50C) has been set.

This will cause heat to accumulate. The baking and roasting times will no longer be correct and the enamel will be damaged.

Aluminum foil: Aluminum foil in the cooking compartment must not come into contact with the door glass. This could cause permanent discoloration of the door glass.

Water in a hot cooking compartment: do not pour water into the cooking compartment when it is hot. This will cause steam. The change in temperature can cause damage to the enamel.

Moisture in the cooking compartment: Over an extended period of time, moisture in the cooking compartment may lead to corrosion. Allow the cooking compartment to dry after use. Do not keep moist food in the closed cooking compartment for extended periods of time. Do not store food in the cooking compartment.

Cooling with the appliance door open: Following operation at high temperatures, only allow the cooking compartment to cool down with the door closed. Do not trap anything in the appliance door. Even if the door is only left open a crack, the front of nearby furniture may become damaged over time. Only leave the cooking compartment to dry with the door open if a lot of moisture was produced during operation.

Fruit juice: when baking particularly juicy fruit pies, do not pack the baking tray too generously. Fruit juice dripping from the baking tray leaves stains that cannot be removed. If possible, place on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.

Dirty seal: If the seal is very dirty, the appliance door will no longer close properly during operation. The fronts of adjacent cabinets could be damaged. Always keep the seal clean.

Appliance door as a seat, shelf or worktop: Do not sit on the appliance door, or place or hang anything on it. Do not place any cookware or accessories on the appliance door.

Inserting accessories: depending on the appliance type, accessories can scratch the door glass when closing the door. Always slide accessories into the cooking compartment as far as they will go.

Transporting the appliance: Do not carry or hold the appliance by the door handle. The door handle cannot support the weight of the appliance and could break.

Protecting the environment Your new appliance is energy-efficient. Here you can find tips on how to save even more energy when using the appliance, and how to dispose of your appliance properly. Unpack the appliance and dispose of the packaging in an environmentally friendly manner.

Saving energy Only preheat the appliance if this is specified in the

recipe or in the tables in the operating instructions. Use baking tins that are dark-colored, painted black or

have an enamel coating. They absorb the heat particularly well.

Open the appliance door as infrequently as possible when the appliance is in use.

It is best to bake several cakes one after the other. The cooking compartment is still warm. This reduces the baking time for the second cake. You can place two cake tins next to each other in the cooking compartment.

For longer cooking times, you can switch the appliance off 10 minutes before the end of the cooking time and use the residual heat to finish cooking.

--------

Notes Slight differences in color on the front of the appliance

are caused by the use of different materials, such as glass, plastic and metal.

Shadows on the door panels, which look like streaks, are caused by reflections made by the interior lighting.

Enamel is baked on at very high temperatures. This can cause some slight color variation. This is normal and does not affect operation.

The edges of thin trays cannot be completely enameled. As a result, these edges can be rough. This does not impair the anti-corrosion protection.

Surfaces in the cooking compartment The slightly textured surface of the back wall, ceiling and sides in the cooking compartment are self-cleaning. The cooking compartment floor is enameled and has a smooth surface.

Cleaning Enamel Surfaces Clean the smooth enamel surfaces with a dish cloth and hot soapy water or a vinegar solution. Dry with a soft cloth. Soften baked-on food residues with a damp cloth and soapy water. If there are heavy deposits of dirt, use a stainless steel scouring pad or oven cleaner.

NOTICE: Never use oven cleaner in the oven cavity when it is still warm. This may damage the enamel. Remove all food remnants from the oven cavity and the appliance door before you next heat up the appliance. Leave the oven cavity open to dry after cleaning.

Note: Food residues can leave a white coating behind.These are harmless and do not affect performance. You can remove these residues using lemon juice if required.

Cleaning self-cleaning surfaces The self-cleaning surfaces are coated with a porous, matte ceramic layer. This coating absorbs and dispels splashes from baking and roasting while the appliance is in operation. If the self-cleaning surfaces no longer clean themselves sufficiently and dark stains appear, they can be cleaned using the cleaning function. To do this, refer to the information in the relevant section. ~ "Cleaning function" on page 24

9 CAUTION

Do not use oven cleaner on the self-cleaning surfaces. These will damage the surfaces. If oven cleaner does get onto these surfaces, dab it off immediately using water and a sponge cloth. Do not rub the surface and do not use abrasive cleaning aids.

Keeping the appliance clean Always keep the appliance clean and remove dirt immediately so that stubborn deposits of dirt do not build up.

Tips Clean the cooking compartment after each use. This will ensure that dirt cannot be baked on. Always remove flecks of limescale, grease, starch and albumin (e.g. egg white) immediately. Use suitable ovenware for roasting, e.g. a roasting dish.

Cleaning function The self-cleaning surfaces in the cooking compartment are cleaned with the "EcoClean" cleaning function. The self-cleaning surfaces (back panel, ceiling panel and side panels) are coated with a porous, matt ceramic material. This coating absorbs and breaks down splashes from baking, roasting and grilling while the oven is in operation. If the surfaces no longer clean themselves adequately and dark patches appear, the surfaces can be cleaned by the cleaning function.

Note: The appliance records the number of times it is used. The appliance indicates when it has reached a point in time after which cleaning is recommended. The recommendation is displayed until the cleaning function has finished. If you do not act on this recommendation, the self- cleaning surfaces may become damaged. If your appliance becomes prematurely dirty or if you notice dark patches on the back panel, do not wait until your appliance recommends cleaning to do so. The more often the appliance is cleaned, the longer the self- cleaning surfaces will retain their cleaning capability. You can clean your appliance at any time needed using the cleaning function.

Maximum operating time If you do not change the settings on your appliance for several hours, the appliance stops heating up automatically. This prevents unwanted continuous operation. The respective settings for the operating mode govern when the maximum operating time is reached. Maximum operating time reached A note appears on the display confirming that the maximum operating time has been reached. To continue operation, touch any field or turn the rotary selector. Switch the appliance off using the On/Off button if you do not need to use it.

Tip: Set a cooking time so that the appliance does not switch off when you do not want it to, e.g. with an extremely long preparation time. The appliance heats up until the set cooking time has elapsed.

Replacing the cooking compartment bulb on the ceiling If the cooking compartment light bulb burns out, it must be replaced. Heat-resistant, 40 watt, 230 V halogen bulbs are available from customer service or specialist retailers. When handling the halogen bulb, use a dry cloth. This will increase the service life of the bulb. Only use these bulbs.

9 WARNING

Light socket is live when door is open if main power supply is not turned off.

9 WARNING

Make sure the appliance and lights are cool and power to the appliance has been turned off before replacing the light bulb(s). Failure to do so could result in electrical shock or burns. The lenses (if equipped) must be in place when using the appliance. The lenses (if equipped) serve to protect the light bulb from breaking. The lenses (if equipped) are made of glass. Handle carefully to avoid breaking. Broken glass can cause an injury.

STATEMENT OF LIMITED PRODUCT WARRANTY

What this Warranty Covers & Who it Applies to The limited warranty provided by BSH Home Appliances (Bosch) in this Statement of Limited Product Warranty applies only to the Bosch appliance sold to you (Product), provided that the Product was purchased:

For your normal, household (non-commercial) use, and has in fact at all times only been used for normal household purposes.

New at retail from a BSH authorized dealer or directly from BSH (not a display, "as is", or previously returned model), and not for resale, or commercial use.

Within the United States or Canada, and has at all times remained within the country of original purchase.

The warranties stated herein apply to the original purchaser of the product warranted herein and to each succeeding owner of the product purchased for ordinary home use during the term of the warranty.

Please make sure to register your Product; while not necessary to effectuate warranty coverage, it is the best way for Bosch to notify you in the unlikely event of a safety notice or product recall.

How Long the Warranty Lasts Bosch warrants that the Product is free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of three hundred and sixty-five (365) days from the date of the original delivery. The foregoing timeline begins to run upon the date of the original delivery, and shall not be stalled, tolled, extended, or suspended, for any reason whatsoever. This Product is also warranted to be free from cosmetic defects in material and workmanship (such as scratches of stainless steel, paint/porcelain blemishes, chips, dents, or other damage to the finish) of the Product, for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of delivery or closing date for new construction. This cosmetic warranty excludes slight color variations due to inherent differences in painted and porcelain parts, as well as differences caused by kitchen lighting, product location, or other similar factors. This cosmetic warranty specifically excludes any display, floor, As Is, or B stock appliances.

Repair/Replace as Your Exclusive Remedy During this warranty period, Bosch or one of its authorized service providers will repair your Product without charge to you (subject to certain limitations stated herein) if your Product proves to have been manufactured with a defect in materials or workmanship. If reasonable attempts to

repair the Product have been made without success, then Bosch will replace your Product (upgraded models may be available to you, in Boschs sole discretion, for an additional charge). Nothing in this warranty requires damaged or defective parts to be replaced with parts of a different type or design than the original part. All removed parts and components shall become the property of Bosch at its sole option. All replaced and/or repaired parts shall assume the identity of the original part for purposes of this warranty and this warranty shall not be extended with respect to such parts. Boschs sole liability and responsibility hereunder is to repair manufacturer- defective Product only, using a Bosch authorized service provider during normal business hours. For safety and property damage concerns, Bosch highly recommends that you do not attempt to repair the Product yourself, or use a non-authorized service provider; Bosch will have no responsibility or liability for damage resulting from repairs or work performed by a non-authorized service provider. Authorized service providers are those persons or companies that have been specially trained on Bosch products, and who possess, in Boschs opinion, a superior reputation for customer service and technical ability (note that they are independent entities and are not agents, partners, affiliates or representatives of Bosch). Nevertheless, taking your product to be serviced by a repair shop that is not affiliated with or an authorized dealer of Bosch will not void this warranty. Also, using third-party parts will not void this warranty. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Bosch will not incur any liability, or have responsibility, for the Product if it is located in a remote area (more than 100 miles from an authorized service provider) or is reasonably inaccessible, hazardous, threatening, or treacherous locale, surroundings, or environment; in any such event, if you request, Bosch would still pay for labor and parts and ship the parts to the nearest authorized service provider, but you would still be fully liable and responsible for any travel time or other special charges by the service company, assuming they agree to make the service call. Further, to the extent you have installed the Product in a difficult-to- access location or have otherwise installed temporary or permanent fixtures that create barriers to accessing or removing the Product, Bosch will not incur any liability for, or have responsibility, for work or costs associated with moving the Product or otherwise creating access to the Product in order to repair or replace it. All such costs shall be your sole responsibility.

Out of Warranty Product Bosch is under no obligation, at law or otherwise, to provide you with any concessions, including repairs, prorates, or Product replacement, once this warranty has expired.

32

CONTRACT OR TORT (INCLUDING STRICT LIABILITY, OR NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE. THIS WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. ANY WARRANTY IMPLIED BY LAW, WHETHER FOR MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR OTHERWISE, SHALL BE EFFECTIVE ONLY FOR THE PERIOD THAT THIS EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTY IS EFFECTIVE.

Dishes You can use the "Assist" operating mode to prepare a wide variety of food. The appliance selects the optimal settings for you. To achieve good results, the cooking compartment must not be too hot for the type of food you have selected. If it is, a message will appear on the display. Allow the cooking compartment to cool down and start again.

Information on the settings The cooking result depends on the quality of the food

and the size and type of cookware. For an optimal cooking result, use food that is in good condition and chilled meat only. For frozen food, use food straight out of the freezer only.

For some food, a temperature, heating mode and cooking time is suggested. The temperature and the cooking time can be changed according to your requirements.

When roasting dishes for which the appliance will apply the temperature selection for you, temperatures of up to 570 F (300 C) can be saved. Therefore, make sure that you use cookware that is sufficiently heat resistant.

Information is provided, e.g. on cookware, rack position or the addition of liquid when cooking meat. Some food requires turning or stirring, etc. during cooking. This is shown in the display shortly after operation starts. An audible signal will remind you at the right time.

Information on the right kind of cookware to use and tips and tricks for the preparation can be found at the end of the instruction manual. ~ "Tested for You in Our Cooking Studio" on page 36

Tested for You in Our Cooking Studio Here, you can find a selection of dishes and the ideal settings for them. We will show you which heating method and temperature are best suited to your dish. You will be provided with information on suitable cooking accessories and the height at which they should be placed in the oven. You will also be provided with tips about cookware and preparation methods.

Note: A lot of steam can build up in the cooking compartment when cooking food. Your appliance is very energy-efficient and radiates very little heat to its surroundings during operation. Due to the high difference in temperature between the appliance interior and the external parts of the appliance, condensation may build up on the door, control panel, or adjacent kitchen cabinet panels. This is a normal physical phenomenon. Condensation can be reduced by preheating the oven or opening the door carefully.

Cakes and Small Baked Items Your appliance offers you a range of heating types for the preparation of cakes and small baked items. You can find the ideal settings for many dishes in the settings tables. Also refer to the notes in the section on allowing dough to rise. Only use original accessories supplied with your appliance. These have been tailored to the cooking compartment and the operating modes of your appliance.

Rack positions Use the indicated rack positions. Baking on one rack When baking on one rack, use the following rack positions: Tall baked items: rack position 2 Flat baked items: rack position 3 If you are using Convection Multi-Rack as the heating mode, you can choose between rack positions 1, 2, 3 and 4. Baking on several racks Use Convection Multi-Rack. Baked items that are placed into the oven on two racks at the same time will not necessarily be ready at the same time. Baking on two racks: First wire rack: rack position 3 Second wire rack: rack position 1 Baking on three racks: First wire rack: rack position 5 Second wire rack: rack position 3 Third wire rack: rack position 1 Position baking tins/dishes next to one another or offset and vertically stacked in the cooking compartment.

Accessories Ensure that you always use suitable accessories and that they are placed in the oven the right way around. Wire Rack Insert the wire rack with the open side facing the appliance door and the curved lip pointing downwards. Always place cookware, tins, and dishes on the wire rack. Baking pans Shiny aluminum baking pans are most suitable. Tinplate baking pans, ceramic dishes and glass dishes extend baking time and mean that the baked item will not brown evenly. If you wish to bake using these baking pans/dishes and using top/bottom heating, slide in the pan/dish at rack position 1. Parchment Paper Only use parchment paper that is suitable for the selected temperature. Always cut parchment paper to size.

Recommended setting values The table lists the optimal heating modes for various baked items. The temperature and baking time depend on the amount and consistency of the dough/mixture. For this reason, the table specifies setting ranges. Try using the lower values to start with. A lower temperature will result in more even browning. You can use a higher setting next time if necessary.

Note: Baking times cannot be reduced by using higher temperatures. Cakes or small baked items would only be cooked on the outside, and would not be fully baked in the middle. If you wish to follow one of your own recipes when baking, you should use the setting values listed for similar baked items in the table as reference. Additional information can be found in the baking tips listed after the settings table. Remove unused accessories from the cooking compartment. This will ensure that you achieve the best possible cooking results. Heating methods used: < Convection Multi-Rack % Bake $ Pizza

Tips on baking

You want to find out whether the cake is completely cooked in the middle.

Push a toothpick into the highest point on the cake. If the toothpick comes out clean with no dough residue, the cake is ready.

The cake collapses. Next time, use less liquid. Alternatively, set the temperature to be 50 F (10 C) lower and extend the baking time. Adhere to the specified ingredients and preparation instructions in the recipe.

The cake has risen in the middle but is lower around the edge.

Only grease the base of the springform cake pan. After baking, loosen the cake care- fully with a knife.

The fruit juice overflows. Next time, line the baking sheet with aluminum foil. Small baked items stick to one another during baking.

There should be a gap of approx. 1 inch (2 cm) around each item. This gives enough space for the baked items to expand well and brown on all sides.

The cake is too dry. Set the temperature 50 F (10 C) higher and shorten the baking time. The cake is generally too light in color.

If the rack position and the cookware are correct, then you should increase the tem- perature if necessary or extend the baking time.

The cake is too light on top, and too dark underneath.

Bake the cake one rack level higher in the oven the next time.

The cake is too dark on top, and too light underneath.

Bake the cake one rack level lower in the oven the next time. Select a lower tempera- ture and extend the baking time.

Cakes baked in a tray or tin are too brown at the back.

Place the baking tray in the middle of the accessories, not directly against the back wall.

The whole cake is too dark. Select a lower temperature next time and extend the baking time if necessary. The cake is unevenly browned.

Select a slightly lower temperature. Protruding greaseproof paper can affect the air circulation. Always cut greaseproof paper to size. Ensure that the baking tin does not stand directly in front of the openings in the cook- ing compartment back wall. When baking small items, you should use similar sizes and thicknesses wherever pos- sible.

You were baking on several levels. The items on the top rack are darker than those on the lower rack.

Always select Convection Multi-Rack when baking on several levels. Baked items that are placed into the oven on trays or in baking tins/dishes at the same time will not necessarily be ready at the same time.

The cake looks good, but is not cooked properly in the middle.

Use a lower temperature and bake slightly longer; if necessary, add slightly less liquid. For cakes with a moist topping, bake the base first. Sprinkle it with almonds or flour and then place the topping on top.

The cake cannot be turned out of the dish when it is turned upside down.

Allow the cake to cool down for 5 to 10 minutes after baking. If it still sticks, carefully loosen the cake around the edges again using a knife. Turn the cake pan upside down again and cover it several times with a cold, wet cloth. Next time, grease the baking tin/dish and sprinkle with flour.

Bread and Rolls Your appliance offers you a range of heating methods for baking bread and rolls. You can find the ideal settings for many dishes in the settings tables. Also refer to the notes in the section on allowing dough to rise. Only use original accessories supplied with your appliance. These have been tailored to the cooking compartment and operating modes of your appliance.

Rack positions Use the indicated rack positions. Baking on one rack When baking on one rack, use the following rack positions: Tall baked items: rack position 2 Flat baked items: rack position 3 If you are using Convection Multi-Rack as the heating mode, you can choose between rack positions 1, 2, 3 and 4. Baking on two racks Use Convection Multi-Rack. Baked items that are placed into the oven on two racks at the same time will not necessarily be ready at the same time. Baking tins/dishes on the wire rack: First wire rack: rack position 3 Second wire rack: rack position 1 Position baking tins/dishes next to one another or offset and vertically stacked in the cooking compartment.

Accessories Ensure that you always use suitable accessories and that they are placed in the oven the right way around. Wire Rack Insert the wire rack with the open side facing the appliance door and the curved lip pointing downwards. Always place cookware, tins, and dishes on the wire rack. Baking pans Shiny aluminum baking pans are most suitable. Tinplate baking pans, ceramic dishes and glass dishes extend baking time and mean that the baked item will not brown evenly. If you wish to bake using these baking pans/dishes and using top/bottom heating, slide in the pan/dish at rack position 1. Parchment Paper Only use parchment paper that is suitable for the selected temperature. Always cut parchment paper to size.

Frozen Products Do not use frozen products that are heavily frosted. Remove any ice on the food. Some frozen products may be unevenly pre-baked. Uneven browning may remain even after baking.

Recommended Setting Values The table lists the optimal heating method for various types of breads and rolls. The temperature and baking time depend on the amount and consistency of the dough/mixture. For this reason, setting ranges are indicated. Try using the lower values to start with. A lower temperature results in more even browning. You can increase the temperature next time if necessary.

Note: Baking times cannot be reduced by using higher temperatures. The bread or rolls would only be cooked on the outside, but would not be fully baked in the middle. The setting values apply to food that is placed into the cold cooking compartment. If you preheat the oven, you can reduce the indicated baking times by several minutes. Preheating is necessary for selected food, and this is indicated in the table. Do not place your food or accessories into the cooking compartment until it has finished preheating. Some food turns out best if it is baked in several stages. These foods are indicated in the table. The setting values for bread dough apply to both dough placed on a baking tray and dough placed in a loaf tin. If you wish to follow one of your own recipes when baking, you should use similar baked goods in the table as a reference.

9 CAUTION

Never pour water into the hot cooking compartment or place cookware containing water onto the bottom of the cooking compartment. The change in temperature can cause damage to the enamel.

Rack positions Always use the indicated rack position. Baking tins/dishes on the wire rack: Rack position 2 Position baking tins/dishes next to one another in the cooking compartment.

Accessories Ensure that you always use suitable accessories and that they are placed in the oven the right way around. Wire Rack Insert the wire rack with the open side facing the appliance door and the curved lip pointing downwards. Always place cookware, tins, and dishes on the wire rack. Cookware Use wide, shallow cookware for casseroles and gratins. Food takes longer to cook in narrow, deep cookware and browns more on top.

Recommended Setting Values The table lists the optimal heating method for various types of casseroles and souffls. Temperature and cooking time depend on the quantity of food and the recipe. How well cooked a casserole is will depend on the size of the cookware and the thickness of the casserole. For this reason, setting ranges are indicated. Try using the lower values to start with.

Poultry Your appliance offers you a range of heating methods for preparing poultry. You can find the ideal settings for certain dishes in the settings tables.

Roasting in Cookware Only use cookware that is suitable for use in an oven. Check that the cookware fits in the cooking compartment. Glass cookware is the most suitable. Place hot glass cookware onto a dry mat after cooking. The glass could crack if placed on a cold or wet surface. Shiny roasting dishes made from stainless steel or aluminum reflect heat like a mirror and are therefore not particularly suitable. Poultry cooks slower and does not brown so well. Use a higher temperature and/or a longer cooking time. Observe the manufacturer's instructions for your roasting cookware. Uncovered Cookware It is best to use a deep roasting pan/dish for roasting poultry. Place the pan/dish onto the wire rack. Covered Cookware When preparing food with covered cookware, the cooking compartment remains considerably cleaner. Ensure that the lid fits well and closes properly. Place the cookware onto the wire rack. Very hot steam may escape when opening the lid after cooking. Lift the lid in the back, so that the hot steam can escape away from you. Poultry can also become crispy in a covered roasting dish. To do so, use a roasting dish with a glass lid and set a higher temperature.

Recommended Setting Values You can find the ideal heating method for the kind of poultry you are cooking in the table. Temperature and cooking time depend on the quantity, consistency, and temperature of the food. For this reason, setting ranges are indicated. Try using the lower values to start with. You can increase the temperature next time if necessary.

The setting values are based on the assumption that unstuffed, chilled, ready-to-roast poultry is placed into a cold cooking compartment. If you preheat the oven, you can reduce the indicated cooking times by several minutes. In the table, you can find specifications for poultry with default values for the weight. If you wish to cook heavier poultry, use the lower temperature in every case. If cooking multiple pieces, use the weight of the heaviest piece as a reference for determining the cooking time. The individual pieces should be approximately equal in size. A general rule: the larger the poultry, the lower the cooking temperature and the longer the cooking time. Turn the poultry after approx. ^ to Z of the indicated time.

Note: Only use parchment paper that is suitable for the selected temperature. Always cut parchment paper to size.

Tips When cooking duck or goose, pierce the skin underneath the wings. This allows the fat to run out. When cooking duck breast, score the skin. Do not turn duck breasts. If you turn poultry when cooking, ensure that the breast side or the skin side is underneath at first. Poultry will turn out particularly crispy and brown if you baste it towards the end of the roasting time with butter, salted water, or orange juice. Remove unused accessories from the cooking compartment. This will ensure that you achieve the best possible cooking results. Heating methods used: % Bake 7 Convection Broil ( Broil

Meat Your appliance offers a range of heating methods for preparing meat. You can find the ideal settings for many dishes in the settings tables.

Roasting and Braising Baste lean meat with fat as required or cover it with strips of bacon. Score the rind crosswise. If you turn the roast when cooking, ensure that the rind is underneath at first. When the roast is ready, turn off the oven and allow it to rest for another 10 minutes in the cooking compartment. This allows the meat juices to be better distributed. Wrap the roast in aluminum foil if necessary. The recommended resting time is not included in the indicated cooking time.

Roasting and Braising in Cookware It is more convenient to roast and braise meat in cookware. You can take the roast out of the cooking compartment more easily in the cookware, and prepare the sauce in the cookware itself. Only use cookware that is suitable for use in an oven. Check that the cookware fits in the cooking compartment. Glass cookware is the most suitable. Place hot glass cookware onto a dry mat after cooking. The glass could crack if placed on a cold or wet surface. When roasting, add in a little liquid if the meat is lean. Wtih glass cookware, the bottom of the cookware should be covered with approx. ^ inch (2 cm) of liquid. The quantity of liquid is dependent on the type of meat, the cookware material, and also on whether or not a lid is used. When preparing meat in an enamelled or dark metal roasting dish, it will need a little more liquid than when cooked in glass cookware.

During roasting, the liquid in the cookware will evaporate. Carefully pour in more liquid if required. Shiny roasting dishes made from stainless steel or aluminum reflect heat like a mirror and are therefore not particularly suitable. The meat cooks more slowly and will not brown so much. Use a higher temperature and/or a longer cooking time. Observe the manufacturer's instructions for your roasting cookware. Uncovered Cookware It is best to use a deep roasting pan/dish for roasting meat. Place the pan/dish onto the wire rack. Covered Cookware When preparing food with covered cookware, the cooking compartment remains considerably cleaner. Ensure that the lid fits well and closes properly. Place the cookware onto the wire rack. The distance between the meat and the lid should be at least 3 cm. The meat may rise. Very hot steam may escape when opening the lid after cooking. Lift the lid in the back, so that the hot steam can escape away from you. If necessary, braise the meat first by searing it. Add water, wine, vinegar, or a similar liquid for the braising liquid. Cover the bottom of the cookware with approx. 1 2 cm of liquid. During roasting, the liquid in the cookware will evaporate. Carefully pour in more liquid if required. Meat can also become crispy in a covered roasting dish. To do so, use a roasting dish with a glass lid and set a higher temperature.

Broiling Keep the appliance door closed when using the broil mode. Never broil with the appliance door open. When broiling, try wherever possible to use pieces of food which are of a similar thickness and weight. This will allow them to brown evenly and remain succulent and juicy. Use tongs to turn the pieces of food you are broiling. If you pierce the meat with a fork, the juices will run out and it will become dry. Do not add salt until after the meat has been broiled. Salt draws water from the meat.

Notes The grill element switches itself on and off

continuously; this is normal. The grill setting determines how frequently this occurs.

Smoke may be produced when grilling.

Recommended Setting Values You can find the ideal heating method for many meat dishes in the table. Temperature and cooking time depend on the quantity, consistency, and temperature of the food. For this reason, setting ranges are indicated. Try using the lower values to start with. You can increase the temperature next time if necessary.

The setting values apply to chilled meat placed into the cold cooking compartment. If you preheat the oven, you can reduce the indicated cooking times by several minutes. You can find information on roasts and default values for weights in the table. If you wish to roast a heavy piece of meat, you should definitely use a lower temperature. If cooking multiple pieces, use the weight of the heaviest piece as a reference for determining the cooking time. The individual pieces should be approximately equal in size. A general rule: the larger the roast, the lower the cooking temperature and the longer the cooking time. Turn roasts and grilled items after approx. ^ to Z of the indicated time. If you wish to follow one of your own recipes, you should use similar dishes as a reference. Additional information can be found in the tips on roasting, braising, and grilling listed after the settings table. Remove unused accessories from the cooking compartment.

Tips for Roasting and Braising

Fish Your appliance offers you a range of heating methods for preparing fish. You can find the ideal settings for many dishes in the settings tables. Whole fish does not have to be turned. Place the whole fish into the cooking compartment in swimming position with the dorsal fin facing upwards. Placing half a potato or a small oven-proof container in the stomach cavity of the fish will provide stability. You can tell when the fish is cooked because the dorsal fin can be removed easily.

Roasting and Steaming in Cookware Only use cookware that is suitable for use in an oven. Check that the cookware fits in the cooking compartment. Glass cookware is the most suitable. Place hot glass cookware onto a dry mat after cooking. The glass could crack if placed on a cold or wet surface. Shiny roasting dishes made from stainless steel or aluminum reflect heat like a mirror and are therefore not particularly suitable. Fish cooks slower and does not brown so well. Use a higher temperature and/or a longer cooking time. Observe the manufacturer's instructions for your roasting cookware.

Uncovered Cookware It is best to use a deep roasting tin/dish for cooking whole fish. Place the tin/dish onto the wire rack. Covered Cookware When preparing food with covered cookware, the cooking compartment remains considerably cleaner. Ensure that the lid fits well and closes properly. Place the cookware onto the wire rack. When steaming, add two to three tablespoons of liquid and a little lemon juice or vinegar into the cookware. Very hot steam may escape when opening the lid after cooking. Lift the lid in the back, so that the hot steam can escape away from you. Fish can also become crispy in a covered roasting dish. To do so, use a roasting dish with a glass lid and set a higher temperature.

If you wish to follow one of your own recipes, you should use similar dishes in the table as a reference. Heating methods used: < Convection Multi-Rack % Bake

Slow Cooking Slow cooking is a technique for cooking food over a long period at low temperatures. For this reason, it is also called "low-temperature cooking". Slow cooking is ideal for all prime cuts (e.g., tender portions of beef, veal, pork, lamb, or poultry) that are to be cooked medium/medium rare or " point." The meat will remain moist and tender. The benefit of this cooking method is that you have plenty of leeway for menu planning because slow-cooked meat is easy to keep warm. You do not have to turn the meat when cooking. Keep the appliance door closed in order to maintain an even cooking climate. Only use fresh, good-quality meat without bones. Carefully remove sinews and fat from around the edge. Fat develops a strong, distinct flavor during slow cooking. You can also use seasoned or marinated meat. Do not use defrosted meat. Meat can be carved immediately following slow cooking. No resting time is required. As a result of the special cooking method, the meat looks pink, but it is not raw or undercooked.

Note: A delayed-start operation with an end time is not possible for the slow cooking heating method.

Cookware Use shallow cookware, e.g., a porcelain or glass serving dish. Place the cookware into the cooking compartment to preheat. Always place the uncovered cookware onto the wire rack at rack position 2. Additional information can be found in the tips on slow cooking listed after the settings table. Your appliance features the heating method "Slow Cook." Only start operation when the cooking compartment has fully cooled down. Allow the cooking compartment to warm up for approx. 15 minutes with the cookware inside. Sear the meat on the hotplate at a very high heat and for a sufficiently long time on all sides, even on the ends. Place food onto/into the preheated cookware immediately. Put the cookware containing the meat back into the cooking compartment and slow cook.

Recommended Setting Values The slow cooking temperature and cooking time are dependent on the size, thickness, and quality of the meat. For this reason, setting ranges are indicated. Heating methods used: . Slow Cook

Slow Cooking Tips

Drying With Convection Multi-Rack, you can dry foods with outstanding results. With this type of preserving, flavorings are concentrated by the dehydration. Only use fruit, vegetables, and herbs that are in good condition, and wash them thoroughly. Line the wire rack with baking or parchment paper. Drain the excess water from the fruit, then dry it. Cut it into equal chunks or thin slices, if necessary. Place unpeeled fruit onto the tray with the sliced surfaces facing upwards. Ensure that neither fruit nor mushrooms overlap on the wire rack. Grate vegetables and then blanch them. Allow the blanched vegetables to drain and distribute them evenly on the wire rack. Dry herbs on the stem. Position the herbs evenly and slightly heaped on the wire rack. Use the following shelf positions for drying:

1 Wire rack: rack position 3 2 Wire racks: rack positions 3+1 Turn very juicy fruit and vegetables several times. After drying, remove the dried fruit and vegetables from the paper immediately.

Recommended Setting Values In the table, you can find settings for drying various food items. Temperature and cooking time are dependent on the type, moisture, ripeness, and thickness of the food to be dried. The longer you leave the food to be dried, the better it will be preserved. The thinner the slices are, the quicker the drying process will be and the more aromatic the dried food will remain. For this reason, setting ranges are indicated. If you wish to dry additional food items, you should use similar food items in the table as a reference. Heating methods used: < Convection Multi-Rack

Slow cook duck breast. Place the cold duck breast into a pan and sear the skin side first. After slow cooking, grill for 3 to 5 minutes until crispy.

Slow-cooked meat is not as hot as conventionally roasted meat.

Warm the plates and serve the gravy very hot so that the roasted meat does not cool as quickly.

Proofing Dough You can proof yeast dough in your appliance more quickly than at room temperature. Use the Bake mode. Only start operation when the cooking compartment has fully cooled down. Always allow yeast dough to proof twice. Observe the specifications in the settings tables for the 1st and 2nd proofing processes (dough fermentation and final fermentation). Dough Fermentation Use the settings indicated in the table and heat up the appliance. Place the dough bowl on the wire rack.

Do not open the appliance door during the proofing process, as moisture will escape. Cover the dough with a damp cloth. Final Fermentation Place your pastry into the oven at the shelf position indicated in the table. If you want to preheat the oven, the final fermentation takes place outside the appliance in a warm place.

Recommended Setting Values Temperature and proving time are dependent on the type and quantity of the ingredients. Therefore, the values in the table are meant to be guide values only. Heating methods used: % Bake

Defrosting The "Defrost" heating method is suitable for defrosting frozen fruit, vegetables, and baked items. Poultry, meat, and fish should ideally be defrosted in the refrigerator. Use the following shelf positions when defrosting: 1 Wire rack: rack position 2 2 Wire racks: rack positions 3+1

9 WARNING

HEALTH RISK Liquid will be produced when defrosting meat or poultry. Drain off this liquid when turning meat and poultry, and under no circumstances, use it for other purposes, or allow it to come into contact with other foods.

Recommended Setting Values The times specified in the table are intended as a guide. They are dependent on the quality, freezing temperature (0F / -18 C), and composition of the food. Time ranges are indicated. Set the shortest time first and then extend the time if necessary.

Tip: Items which were frozen flat or portioned defrost faster than those frozen in a block. Remove frozen food from the packaging and place it onto the wire rack in suitable cookware. Turn or stir the food once or twice during the defrosting time. Large pieces of food should be turned several times. Occasionally break up the food or remove items which have already defrosted from the cooking compartment. Leave the defrosted food to rest for another 10 to 30 minutes in the appliance while it is switched off to compensate for the temperature difference. Heating methods used: B Defrost

Keeping Food Warm You can keep cooked dishes warm using the "Keep Warm" heating method. This will prevent condensation from developing, meaning you will not have to wipe out the cooking compartment. Do not keep cooked dishes warm for longer than two hours. Be aware that some dishes may continue cooking while being kept warm. Cover the food if necessary.
