It couldn’t be simpler thanks to our Pyrolytic cleaning function, a button to clean the main oven.
It cleans by burning off the spatters and accumulated dirt and grease from the oven liner at high temperatures. This process produces ash which can be wiped out of the oven cavity with a soft damp cloth and warm water.
Before using the Pyrolytic cleaning function, follow these steps:
- Remove all accessories from the oven, including shelves, trays, and side racks. These can be washed by hand in hot soapy water.
- Clean large deposits, spills, or grease from the oven cavity.
- Ensure the cavity well is free of limestone scaling.
Glass surfaces on doors and control panels are best cleaned immediately after soiling. A damp cloth may help remove baked-on food deposits, while oven cleaners can be used to remove stubborn marks and stains.
Our in-built AirFry mode enables advanced convection cooking without having to turn your food – all at the turn of a dial.
With 5 shelf positions - position 1 being the closest to the bottom and position 5, the closest to the top – each provides differing cooking results.
Position 1 is best for grilling and when using multiple trays. Monitor closely as the cooking time will be reduced.
Position 2 is best for fresh meats and vegetables, as well as frozen croissants and pastries.
Position 3 is best for single-tray cooking and frozen food. Hot air circulates evenly for consistent results.
Position 4 and position 2 are best used when cooking with 2 shelves, as this creates the best airflow.
