By maintaining the right temperature across all three shelf levels consistently even cooking results are achieved.
Top and bottom heat
Conventional baking and roasting on one level.
Top/Bottom heat gentle
Conventional baking and roasting on one level using residual heat, allowing you to gently cook meat, fish and baked items.

Only the bottom element is heated – ideal for pastry cases, bain-marie cooking and reheating.
Produces succulent roasts, with juicy meats and crispy skins, as well as breads with the perfect colour and crust.
For all those times you cook using just one shelf level, Hotair Gentle gives perfect results.
By operating alternatively, the grill and fan create a rotisserie effect, perfect for creating crisp meats and poultry.
Use the centre grill for smaller quantities and more efficiency.
Full width variable grill
Grill large quantities with ease thanks to the precise temperature control. For added efficiency the door can be closed and the smells are kept in the oven.
Gently defrosts food evenly and quicker than it would take on the kitchen counter.

Single point probe
The single point meat probe constantly measures the temperature at the core of the roast and as soon as the desired temperature is reached gives an acoustic and switches off automatically. (Available in selected Serie 6 models only)
Perfect Roast Meat probe
Three highly sensitive measuring points determine the core temperature of your food to the exact degree, guaranteeing perfect roasting results and taking away the guesswork. (Available in selected Serie 8 models only)
Heats the oven to around 480°C, which reduces dirt and grease deposits to dust that can be easily wiped away.
