You are advised to use dark metal baking forms.
You may also use light baking forms in the hot air
mode. In this case, the baking time is longer.
The values in the cooking tables apply to the
preheated oven. The temperature and duration
depend on the quantity and consistency of the
dough. This is why the tables list temperature
ranges. You are advised to begin with the lowest
temperature the first time. If required, set it higher

To find out if your cake has baked properly, insert a

For large amounts of dough (for example bread) set

Tips for Roasting and Grilling
You can use any heat-resistant dishes.
Place dishes in the middle of the wire rack.
You can also use the grilling tray for large roasts.
After removing glass dishes, place them on a dry
kitchen cloth or cooling grill. Do not place them on

Before serving, allow the roast to rest for
10 minutes with the oven switched off and closed.

Place pieces for grilling directly on the wire rack.
Poultry becomes particularly crispy brown if you
coat it with butter, salt water, dripped-off fat or
For roasting use the wire rack that fits the grilling
tray (accessory or special accessory, depending on

In the case of duck or goose, pierce the skin under
the wings to allow the fat to drain off.

…a roast looks good, but the sauce is burnt?

Choose the next lowest weight in the list and
prolong the roasting time.
Use the defrosting mode. Set the temperature
between 40-60 °C.
Insert the wire rack with the frozen food on the
second level. Insert the grilling tray below to collect
Important: pour away the defrosting liquid.
Defrost large pieces of meat (roasts, chicken, etc.)
between 45-50 °C, otherwise the outer part may
start to brown.
You can defrost small or flat pieces between
