Common oven functions

 

Your Belling oven may not have all these functions, please refer to your User Manual for details about your specific model.

 

Fan Forced Oven

Sometimes referred to as convectional oven, the heating element surrounds a fan which distributes hot air around the oven. The result is a more even temperature and much faster cooking, ideal for batch baking.

Intensive Bake

The oven is heated by top and bottom elements. Mounted in the back panel, the fan helps to distribute heat throughout the oven. Suitable for perfect pastry, no need to blind bake.

Conventional Oven

Top and bottom elements radiate heat to the centre of the oven - ideal for one level cooking e.g. roast, lasagne.

Fan Grill

The fan circulates heat from the grill around the food, simultaneously browning and sealing the juices in.

Base and Fan

Ideal for dishes that require bottom heat, to keep the base crisp whilst cooking the filling or topping e.g. quiche, pizza, tarts.

Half Grill

Grill more economically and use the half grill setting when cooking something small.

Slow Cook

Savour the flavour of slow cooked food. The slow cook function will cook gently at 100°C. Perfect for tender meats and nutrition-rich stews.

Conventional Grilling

The conventional grill cooks using heat from above the food and is ideal for
a range of foods from toast to steak.

Defrost

The oven fan assists defrosting by circulating air around the food, ideal for delicate frozen foods such as cream gateaux and cheesecakes.

LPG Convertible

A converter kit is included with the product so it can be used with LPG.

Pause ‘n’ Play

Pause cooking and resume again, right where you left off.

Power Boost

A quick boost of power to the induction cooktop when you need it.

Top Heat

Ideal for browning foods such as rice pudding or cauliflower cheese as the heat is not as fierce as a grill.

Base Heat

Allows you to cook the bottom of pizzas, flans or pastries without drying out the topping

Oven Light

When you need a little help to see the inside of the oven, great when manually cleaning.

Easy Clean Enamel

No need to scrub your oven, just a quick wipe clean and it will be sparkling again. Cleaning and maintenance made easy.

Induction

Smarter, faster, greener technology. Induction works by heating the pan rather than the cooktop.

Flame Safety Device

For added safety, this device is designed to detect if the flame goes out on your hob and will cut off the gas supply.
