Below are use and care tips, please make sure it is suitable with your oven before using these notes. These are elements from the supplier's bellissimo technika oven manual.
Cleaning and maintenance
Before cleaning your oven or performing maintenance, make sure that the cooking mode selection knob is set to ‘OFF’ and the cooking temperature selection knob is set to ‘OFF’. To extend the life of your oven, it must be cleaned frequently.
The enamelled or stainless steel parts should be washed with lukewarm water without using any abrasive powders or corrosive substances. If any stainless steel has difficult to remove stains, use cleaners specifically recommended to clean stainless steel. After cleaning any surface, it is advisable to rinse thoroughly and dry.
The inside of the oven should preferably be cleaned immediately after use, when it is still warm (but not hot), with warm water and soap. The soap should be rinsed away and the interior dried thoroughly. Avoid using abrasive detergents, scourers acidic cleaners such as lime scale remover, etc. as these could damage the enamel. If stains are particularly tough to remove, use cleaners
specifically recommended to clean ovens and follow the instructions provided with the cleaner. Never use a steam cleaner or caustic oven cleaners for cleaning inside the oven.
If you operate your oven for an extended period of time, or if you are cooking dishes that contain a lot of water, condensation may form on the oven door. Dry it using a soft cloth and try reducing the cooking temperature.
There is a rubber seal surrounding the oven opening which is necessary to ensure the correct operation of the oven. Check the condition of this seal on a regular basis. If necessary, clean it but avoid using abrasive products or objects to do so. Should it become damaged, please contact Technika Service Department. We recommend you avoid using the oven until it has been
Never place anything (including foil and oven trays) on the bottom of the oven when it is in operation because this could damage the enamel.
Clean the glass door using non-abrasive products or sponges and dry it with a soft cloth.
Use only non caustic oven cleaners purchased from hardware stores or supermarkets.

PRACTICAL COOKING ADVICE
The oven offers a wide range of settings which allow you to cook any type of food in the best possible way. With time you will learn to make the best use of this versatile cooking appliance and the following directions are only a guideline which may be varied according to your own personal experience.
If the oven needs to be preheated, the ‘Convection’ mode or ‘Fan Forced’ mode should be selected. These are the most efficient modes, which will reach the desired temperature as quickly as possible using the least amount of energy.
Once the food has been placed in the oven, the desired cooking mode should then be selected.
Multi shelf cooking
If you want to cook food on several shelves, select the ‘Fan Forced’ mode as this is the only cooking mode that allows you to do so. When cooking delicate foods on more than one shelf, use the ‘Fan Forced’ mode. This mode allows you to cook on 3 shelves at the same time.
Using the grill
This multi-function oven has 2 different grilling modes.
Use the ‘Grill’ mode with the oven door closed, place the food on the centre of the grill pan, insert and fit the grill pan on either the 3rd or 4th shelf from the bottom. Note: only the central part of the top heating element operates for grilling.
When using ‘Grill’ mode, we recommend you set the thermostat to the highest setting. However, this does not mean you cannot use lower temperatures, simply adjust the thermostat knob to the desired temperature.
Use ‘Fan assisted grill’ mode with the oven door closed. This mode is very useful for grilling foods rapidly, as the distribution of heat by the fan makes it possible not only to brown the surface, but also to cook the bottom of the food. It can also be used for browning foods at the end of the cooking process, such as adding that gratin finish to pasta bakes for example.
When using ‘Fan assisted grill’ mode, place the food on the 2nd or 3rd oven shelf from the bottom, then place a dripping-pan on the 1st rack from the bottom to prevent fat and grease from dripping onto the oven floor. We recommend you set the thermostat to 200°C, as it is the most efficient temperature for ‘Fan assisted grill’ mode. However, this does not mean you cannot use lower temperatures, simply adjust the thermostat knob to the desired temperature.
Important: for best results and to save energy, always use the ‘Fan assisted grill’ with the oven door closed.
When baking cakes ,always place them in a preheated oven. Make sure you wait until the oven has been preheated thoroughly (the indicator light will turn off). To prevent heat loss and the cake from dropping, do not open the oven door during baking.
... if pastry is too dry
Increase the temperature by 10°C and reduce the cooking time.
... if pastry has dropped
Use less liquid or lower the temperature by 10°C.

Place it on a lower shelf, lower the temperature, and increase the
... if cooked well on the inside but sticky on the outside

Grease the pan well and sprinkle it with a dusting of flour or use

For best results when cooking pizza, use the ‘Convection’ mode
or ‘Fan Forced’ mode.
- Preheat the oven for at least 10 minutes.
- Use a light aluminum pizza pan, placing it on the shelf supplied with the oven. Don’t use the dripping pan since this will extend the cooking time, making it difficult to get a crispy crust.
- Do not open the oven door frequently while the pizza is cooking;
- If the pizza has a lot of toppings (three or four), we recommend you add the mozzarella cheese on top halfway through the cooking process.
- For best results, only use one shelf at a time, but it you want to cook on two shelves, use the 2nd and 4th racks from the bottom with a temperature of 220°C and swap them halfway through cooking.
Cooking fish and meat
When cooking white meat, fowl and fish, use a temperature setting from 180°C to 200°C.
For red meat that you want well done on the outside while tender and juicy in the inside, it is best to start with a high temperature setting (200°C-220°C) for a short time, then turn the oven down afterwards.
In general, the larger the roast, the lower the temperature setting. Place the meat on the centre of the shelf and place the dripping pan beneath it to catch the fat.
Make sure that the shelf is inserted so that it is in the centre of the oven. If you would like to increase the amount of heat from below, use a lower shelf height. For savoury roasts (especially duck and wild game), dress the meat with lard or bacon on the top.
