  • Circulaire Circulaire

    The combination of the fan and circular element around it, gives uniform heat distribution with no cold spots. This results in many benefits - no preheat if cook time is more than 20 minutes, no flavour transfer when cooking different foods at the same time, less energy is needed, and it cooks at 10% quicker than a normal oven. All foods can be cooked on this function, and it is especially suitable for cooked chilled foods.

This gives good results, reduces drying out of foods, and gives even browning and heat distribution, the top two shelves being recommended for use. The lower area of the cavity can also be used to keep other items warm at the same time. An excellent facility to use when cooking a grilled breakfast.
