****** Page 12 ****** Cooking guide Instructions for roasting Place the roast on the lower grill rack. Add some water, but only covering the bottom of the glass bowl. • Turn the roast 1 or 2 times during cooking, basting it with the gravy. Instructions for grilling Use the grill racks as dual stands in order to place the ingredients at different levels. Turn thick meat pieces after half of the cooking time has elapsed. Can also use the steamer / air fryer accessory sited on racks. Instructions for steaming Fill the bottom of the bowl with some water and tasty herbs and spices for steaming vegetables or fish. Use the steamer / air fryer accessory. Instructions for baking You may place any heat resistant baking pan onto the lower grill rack. Because of the air circulation the diameter should be of maximum 26 cm or 40 cm if extender ring is used. If you want to bake a very juicy cake without a crust, attach aluminium foil over the baking pan. Remove the foil shortly 12

****** Page 13 ****** before the cake is done, so the top of the cake may slightly dry up. Cakes and other cookies are baked a little bit faster than in other common ovens. Place frozen pizza directly on the upper grill rack or in the baking tray. Instructions for toasting You may toast bread and snacks without preheating the oven. Place the bakery products on one of the grill racks. Slightly moisten bread rolls that are from the previous day. This way they will crisp up nicely. You may also warm up older snacks such as crackers, chips or cookies. Bake them at maximum heat for a few minutes only, so they will become crispy again. Instructions for defrosting The convection oven provides for a more evenly defrosting process than a microwave. Set the temperature control to DEFROST. Check the food every 5 to 10 minutes. In order to cook frozen food, lower the specified temperature by 200C. The cooking time in the convection oven is also 30 – 50 % shorter (e.g. 10 to 15 minutes instead of 20 minutes). 13

****** Page 14 ****** Instructions for reheating Use lower temperatures when reheating in order not to burn your food. Check the food every 5 to 10 minutes. Note: These time specifications are for reference only and may vary depending on the circumstances. Cooking Hints: Brush meat with oil before seasoning. When using both grill racks, change the food after half of the cooking time has elapsed if the upper food gets crispy faster. RECEIPES Hundreds of delicious halogen oven recipes can be found on
