The operating instructions are written in great detail and are easy to understand. The operation of the oven is illustrated and there are also suggestions for recipes.
Before first use
You must clean the oven before using it for the first time. To do this, wash all removable parts either in the dishwasher or by hand. Then put the stove back in again and let it heat for 15 minutes at the highest setting to burn it in.
The oven has baking and grilling functions. You can set various ventilation/heating options on a rotary control:
- Top heat and rotary spit
- Top heat and circulating air
- Bottom heat
- Bottom heat and circulating air
- Top/bottom heat and rotary spit
- Top/bottom heat and circulating air
This oven has comparatively many combinations, so you can make the right setting for every baking or grilling situation.
In addition, the temperature can be set in a range from 70 °C to 230 °C and a timer from 0 to 120 minutes.
The knob display shows both temperature and timer markings in steps of 10. This allows the settings to be made relatively accurately. In addition, the oven can be put into operation without having to use the timer. To do this, set the timer knob to "M".
In our test, we baked pizza in the ovens and grilled chicken with the spit.
Both the pizza and the chicken have good results in the oven. For the pizza, I preheated the ovens to 200 °C for 10 minutes. I baked the pizza on the grill and it became crispy and brown and can clearly withstand the result of a built-in oven.
The spit also worked well. Here you should make sure that the chicken is not too big. In our test, we had a 1.8 kg chicken. Because the weight distribution was not completely balanced, the spit jerked a little. However, a good result came out also here.
According to the operating instructions, only wipe the oven with a wet cloth and do not use any cleaning agents. This will not remove all the grease - stubborn drops will remain. All individual parts can be washed quickly and easily by hand, but can also be washed in the dishwasher.
The following thermal images show how hot the oven gets from the respective sides after continuous operation of 20 minutes at 230 °C.
The outer walls of the oven become hot during use and should not be touched or placed slightly on them. The handle is well insulated and can be operated without hesitation even after long use. The enclosed handles for the metal sheets and the spit allow the individual parts to be safely removed from the hot oven.

Is oven lighting available?
Yes, the oven has oven lighting.
Does the oven only run when the timer is set, or can it also be used without a timer?
This oven can also be operated without a timer by setting the timer knob to "M".
How do I set the oven for a grilled chicken?
A recommended value would be 60 minutes at 180°, but this might vary slightly depending on the size of the chicken.

The oven has a volume of 36.6 dB when in operation.
