Getting Started

  • Basics: Understand the different knobs and their functions (oven temperature, stovetop burner controls). Refer to your user manual for specific layouts.
  • First Use: Before cooking, run the oven on a high temperature for an hour to burn off any manufacturing residues. Let it cool completely before using for food.
  • Safety: Always supervise a hot oven and stovetop. Keep flammable materials away.
    • Preheat Thoroughly: You should wait until the oven reaches the desired temperature before putting food in.
    • Rack Placement: Position food in the center of the oven for even baking, unless your recipe specifies otherwise. Adjust racks as needed.
    • Avoid Overcrowding: Leave space between pans for optimal air circulation.
    • Match Burner Size to Pan: Use the right-sized burner for even heating and to prevent handle damage.
    • Control Heat: Start with medium heat, and adjust up or down as needed.
    • Simmering vs. Boiling: Learn the difference between a gentle simmer and a rolling boil to achieve the right cooking effects.
  • Stovetop: Wipe spills immediately with soapy water to prevent them from setting.
  • Oven: Many Defy ovens have self-cleaning functions. Refer to your manual for instructions. For non-self-cleaning ovens, use a suitable oven cleaner.
  • Racks and trays: Can usually be cleaned in the dishwasher or with soapy water.
