General Instructions

We thank you for choosing one of our products. For the best results with your oven, you should read this manual carefully and retain it for future reference. Before installing the oven, take note of the serial number so that you can give it to customer service staff if any repairs are required. Having removed the oven from its packaging, check that it has not been damaged during transportation. If you have doubts, do not use the oven and refer to a qualified technician for advice. Keep all of the packaging material (plastic bags, polystyrene, nails) out of the reach of children. When the oven is switched on for the first time, strong smelling smoke can develop, which is caused by the glue on the insulation panels surrounding the oven heating for the first time. This is absolutely normal and, if it occurs, you should wait for the smoke to dissipate before putting food in the oven. The manufacturer accepts no responsibility in cases where the instructions contained in this document are not observed.
NOTE: the oven functions, properties and accessories cited in this manual will vary, depending on the model you have purchased.

Safety Indications

Only use the oven for its intended purpose, that is only for the cooking of foods; any other use, for example as a heat source, is considered improper and therefore dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be held responsible for any damage resulting from improper, incorrect or unreasonable usage. The use of any electrical appliance implies the observance of some fundamental rules:
– do not pull on the power cable to disconnect the plug from the socket;
– do not touch the appliance with wet or damp hands or feet;
– in general the use of adaptors, multiple sockets and extension cables is not recommended;
– in case of malfunction and/or poor operation, switch off the appliance and do not tamper with it.

Electrical Safety

ENSURE THAT AN ELECTRICIAN OR QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN MAKES THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS. The power supply to which the oven is connected must conform with the laws in force in the country of installation. The manufacturer accepts no responsibility for any damage caused by the failure to observe these instructions. The oven must be connected to an electrical supply with an earthed wall outlet or a disconnector with multiple poles, depending on the laws in force in the country of installation. The electrical supply should be protected with suitable fuses and the cables used must have a transverse section that can ensure correct supply to the oven. CONNECTION
The oven is supplied with a power cable that should only be connected to an electrical supply with 220-240 Vac 50 Hz power between the phases or between the phase and neutral. Before the oven is connected to the electrical supply, it is important to check: – power voltage indicated on the gauge; – the setting of the disconnector. The grounding wire connected to the oven’s earth terminal must be connected to the earth terminal of the power supply.
Before connecting the oven to the power supply, ask a qualified electrician to check the continuity of the power supply’s earth terminal. The manufacturer accepts no responsibility for any accidents or other problems caused by failure to connect the oven to the earth terminal or by an earth connection that has defective continuity.
NOTE: as the oven could require maintenance work, it is advisable to keep another wall socket available so that the oven can be connected to this if it is removed from the space in which it is installed. The power cable must only be substituted by technical service staff or by technicians with equivalent qualifications.


After each use of the oven, a minimum of cleaning will help keep the oven perfectly clean. Do not line the oven walls with aluminium foil or single-use protection available from stores. Aluminium foil or any other protection, in direct contact with the hot enamel, risks melting and deteriorating the enamel of the insides. In order to prevent excessive dirtying of your oven and the resulting strong smokey smells, we recommend not using the oven at very high temperature. It is better to extend the cooking time and lower the temperature a little. In addition to the accessories supplied with the oven, we advise you only use dishes and baking moulds resistant to very high temperatures.


The manufacturers have no obligation to carry this out. If the assistance of the manufacturer is required to rectify faults arising from incorrect installation, this assistance is not covered by the guarantee. The installation instructions for professionally qualified personnel must be followed. Incorrect installation may cause harm or injury to people, animals or belongings. The manufacturer cannot be held responsible for such harm or injury. The oven can be located high in a column or under a worktop. Before fixing, you must ensure good ventilation in the oven space to allow proper circulation of the fresh air required for cooling and protecting the internal parts. Make the openings specified on last page according to the type of fitting.

Waste management and environmental protection

This appliance is labelled in accordance with European Directive 2012/19/EU regarding electric and electronic appliances (WEEE). The WEEE contain both polluting substances (that can have a negative effect on the environment) and base elements (that can be reused). It is important that the WEEE undergo specific treatments to correctly remove and dispose of the pollutants and recover all the materials. Individuals can play an important role in ensuring that the WEEE do not become an environmental problem; it is essential to follow a few basic rules: – the WEEE should not be treated as domestic waste; – the WEEE should be taken to dedicated collection areas managed by the town council or a registered company. In many countries, domestic collections may be available for large WEEEs. When you buy a new appliance, the old one can be returned to the vendor who must accept it free of charge as a one-off, as long as the appliance is of an equivalent type and has the same functions as the purchased appliance.
Where possible, avoid pre-heating the oven and always try to fill it. Open the oven door as infrequently as possible, because heat from the cavity disperses every time it is opened. For a significant energy saving, switch off the oven between 5 and 10 minutes before the planned end of the cooking time, and use the residual heat that the oven continues to generate. Keep the seals clean and in order, to avoid any heat dispersal outside of the cavity. If you have an electric contract with an hourly tariff, the “delayed cooking” programme makes energy saving more simple, moving the cooking process to start at the reduced tariff time slot.

Cooking Modes
Function Dial T °C default T °C range Function (Depends on the oven model)
LAMP: Turns on the oven light.
DEFROST: When the dial is set to this position. The fan circulates air at room temperature around the frozen food so that it defrosts in a few minutes without the protein content of the food being changed or altered.
60 60 ÷ 60 KEEP WARM: This is recommended to reheat precooked foodstuff, positioning the shelf on the second level from top, or to defrost bread pizza or pastry by positioning the shelf on the lower level. The temperature is preset in 60°C constant, no regulation is possible.
220 50 ÷ 280 CONVENTIONAL: Both top and bottom heating elements are used. Preheat the oven for about ten minutes. This method is ideal for all traditional roasting and baking. For seizing red meats, roast beef, leg of lamb, game, bread, foil wrapped food (papillotes), flaky pastry. Place the food and its dish on a shelf in mid position.
180 50 ÷ 240 MULTI – LEVEL: We recommend you use this method for poultry, pastries, fish and vegetables. Heat penetrates into the food better and both the cooking and preheating times are reduced. You can cook different foods at the same time with or without the same preparation in one or more positions. This cooking method gives even heat distribution and the smells are not mixed.
Allow about ten minutes extra when cooking foods at the same time.
210 50 ÷ 230 BOTTOM HEATING + FAN: The bottom heating element is used with the fan circulating the air inside the oven. This method is ideal for juicy fruit flans, tarts, quiches and pâté.
It prevents food from drying and encourages rising in cakes, bread dough and other bottom-cooked food.
Place the shelf in the bottom position.
210 50 ÷ 230 BOTTOM HEATING + FAN + STEAM : The hot air is distributed to different shelves, making this function ideal for cooking different types of food at the same time, without ever mixing flavours and smells. By pressing the STEAM button, the steam option works with traditional heat, thus ensuring the best taste and texture for your dishes and perfect leavening.

This mode is suitable for cooking puff pastries, yeast-based desserts, bread and pizza, roasted meat, and fish.

200 150 ÷ 220 GRILL + FAN : use the turbo-grill with the door closed.

The top heating element is used with the fan circulating the air inside the oven. Preheating is necessary for red meats but not for white meats. Ideal for cooking thick food items, whole pieces such as roast pork, poultry, etc. Place the food to be grilled directly on the shelf centrally, at the middle level. Slide the drip tray under the shelf to collect the juices. Make sure that the food is not too close to the grill. Turn the food over halfway through cooking.






L1 ÷ L5

GRILL : use the grill with the door closed.

The top heating element is used alone and you can adjust the temperature. Five minutes preheating is required to get the elements red-hot. Success is guaranteed for grills, kebabs and gratin dishes. White meats should be put at a distance from the grill; the cooking time is longer, but the meat will be tastier. You can put red meats and fish fillets on the shelf with the drip tray underneath.

Oven cleaning and maintenance

General notes on cleaning

The lifecycle of the appliance can be extended through regular cleaning. Wait for the oven to cool before carrying out manual cleaning operations. Never use abrasive detergents, steel wool or sharp objects for cleaning, so as to not irreparably damage the enamelled parts. Use only water, soap or bleach-based detergents (ammonia).


It is advisable to clean the glass window with absorbent kitchen towel after every use of the oven. To remove more obstinate stains, you can use a detergent-soaked sponge, well wrung out, and then rinse with water.

If dirty, the seal can be cleaned with a slightly damp sponge.

Clean accessories with a wet, soapy sponge before rinsing and drying them: avoid using abrasive detergents.

After using the grill, remove the pan from the oven. Pour the hot fat into a container and wash the pan in hot water, using a sponge and washing-up liquid.
If greasy residues remain, immerse the pan in water and detergent. Alternatively, you can wash the pan in the dishwasher or use a commercial oven detergent. Never put a dirty pan back into the oven.

Clean the oven door with a damp cloth or sponge only.
Dry it with a soft cloth.
Do not use steel wool, acids or abrasive materials as they can damage the oven surface. Clean the oven control panel with the same precautions.
Follow these steps to clean the limestone residue from the cavity bottom.

It is recommended to clean the cavity bottom after 5-10 steam cooking cycles.

  1. Pour 300 ml of white vinegar into the cavity bottom.
    NOTE: Type of vinegar:%5
  2. Wait for 30 minutes at room temperature.
  3. Clean the oven using soft cloth and water.

The oven is equipped with a pyrolyser cleaning system, which destroys food residues at high temperature. The operation is carried out automatically by means of the programmer. The resulting fumes are rendered “clean” by passing over a Pyrolyser wich starts as soon as cooking begins. As very high temperatures are required by the Pyrolyser, the oven door is fitted with a safety lock. The pyrolyser can be stopped at any time. The door cannot be opened until the safety lock is displayed.

NOTE : If a hob has been fitted above the oven, never use the gas burners or the electric hot-plates while the Pyrolyser is working, this will prevent the hob from overheating.
ECO PYROCLEAN : Cleans a moderately stained oven. Operates for a period of 90 minutes.
SUPER PYROCLEAN : Cleans a heavily stained oven. Operates for a period of 120 minutes.
Never use commercially available cleaning products on a Pyrolytic oven!
Tip : Carrying out Pyrolytic cleaning immediately after cooking allows you to take advantage of residual heat, thus saving energy Before executing a pyrolytic cycle:

  • Remove all the accessories from the oven because they are not able to tolerate the high temperatures used during the pyrolytic cleaning cycle ; in particular removing grids, side racks and the telescopic guides (refer to the chapter REMOVING GRIDS AND SIDE RACKS) . In ovens with meat probe it is necessary, before making the cleaning cycle, close the hole with the nut provided.
  • Remove any large spillages or stains as it would take too long to destroy them. Also excessively large amounts of grease could ignite when subject to the very high temperatures of the Pyrolytic cycle.
  • Close the oven door
  • Excess spillage must be removed before cleaning.
  • Clean the oven door;
  • Remove large or coarse food residues from the inside of the oven using a damp sponge. Do not use detergents;
    • Remove all accessories and the sliding rack kit {where present);
  • Do not place tea towels.
    Using the pyrolitic cycle:
  1. Rotate the function selector to the position “” On the display, appears the indication “ECO “or “SUP “The preset time is 90 min, this can be varied from 90min (Eco mode) to 120 min (Sup
    mode) via the programmer (setting button ” + ”  or ”  – ” ). If the oven is very dirty, it is recommend o increase the time to 120 min, if the oven is moderately dirty reduce the cleaning cycle time to 90 min.
  2. It is possible to defer the start time of the pyroclean cycle by changing the END time via the programmer.
  3. After few minutes, when the oven reaches a high temperature, the door locks automatically. The pyroclean cycle can be stopped at any time by turning the function selector back to ‘O’ (the word OFF will be displayed for 3 seconds).
  4. Once the pyroclean cycle is finished, the pyrolysis will switch off automatically. On the display appears the indication “END” until the door is locked then “0–n”.
  5. You can turn the function selector back to” 0 ” but if the temperaure
    is still high, the “0–n ” indication appears to inform that the door is locked.

Use of the pyrolytic cycle in Touch Control ovens:

  1. Rotate the function selector into position pyrolisys. The display will show either “ECO” or “SUP”
  2. The pre-set time is 90 minutes but it can be varied from 90 min. (Eco mode) to 120 min. (Sup mode) using the programmer(“+” or”-” key).
    If the oven is very dirty, the time should be increased to 120 min., while if the oven is only a slightly dirty, reduce the cleaning cycle to 90 min.
