In this article, we will guide you through energy-saving tips when using your built-in oven.

Cooking Processes:

  • Remove all accessories that are not needed for the cooking process from the oven.
  • Generally, choose the lowest temperature indicated in the recipe or cooking chart and check the food after the shortest specified time.
  • Preheat the oven only when necessary, according to the recipe or cooking chart.
  • Avoid opening the oven door during cooking, if possible.
  • Preferably use matte, dark baking pans and dishes made of non-reflective materials (enamelled steel, heat-resistant glass, surface-treated aluminium/cast iron). Shiny materials like stainless steel or aluminium reflect heat, making it more difficult for the heat to reach the food. Do not place heat-reflecting aluminium foil on the bottom of the oven or on the rack.
  • Monitor the cooking time to avoid energy waste when cooking food. Set a cooking time or use a meat thermometer if available.
  • When preparing grilled dishes, whenever possible, use the Grill with Ventilation mode. Grilling is done at lower temperatures compared to other grill heating modes with the maximum temperature setting.
  • If possible, cook multiple dishes at the same time. Place them next to each other or on different racks.
  • Whenever feasible, cook dishes that cannot be cooked simultaneously right after each other to make the best use of the oven's heat.
