Hi, look, there are two hotplates (hobs) on top of it, the 2nd dial down on the control panel controls the lefthand hob, and the 3rd dial controls the righthand hob.
I've twiddled dials 2 and 3 and the hobs get hot just fine.
So what on earth is the 1st dial (at the top) for? It's marked 'Hotplate' but what does it actually DO?
(The manual is not much help)
Thanks

I reckon its the oven temp?

The bottom one is the oven mode isnt it? ... notice that the word OVEN is above it. So you have the word OVEN...then the dial under that is for the oven.

Which going by that logic, the HOTPLATE word is for the two dials underneath the word, not for the dial above it.
I remember the good old days, when 90+ year olds in nursing homes lived forever. Darn this pesky virus.

I know what you mean and there are memes to reflect this, but I controlled myself!

Anyway, if Ugh doesn´t get to grips with his new oven, it may be his LAST SUPPER! :gmc:

I think the first dial is the cremation function of the oven.

Thanks everybody, yes I mistakenly thought the word "Hotplate" referred to the top dial, but in fact it refers only to the red light that comes on when the hotplates are on..:D

As regards the bottom dial, yes that's the oven settings, the icons on it are explained in the manual, for example yesterday I did myself some chips and fish fingers in the oven using the "Upper and lower heating elements" setting and they came out fine.

However there's another setting I don't understand, namely the "Upper and lower heating elements with fan assist" setting..What does the fan do exactly, and why should I want to use it, what's it FOR?

Even distribution of heat...

A convection oven (also known as a fan-assisted oven or simply a fan oven) is an oven that has fans to circulate air around food, using the convection mechanism to cook food faster than a conventional oven.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convection_oven


Convection ovens are also used for non-food, industrial applications. :wissl: :zip:

So it's logical for everybody to use the "fans on" setting every time we do any cooking, right?
So what's the "no fans" setting for, and why should anybody want to use it?

Settings in Ovens

"You may want to consider buying a conventional oven that has a convection setting – then you have the best of both worlds! You’ll be able to get the benefits of cooking with gas or electricity and flick a switch to change to convection cooking. The conventional setting is perfect for delicate batter-type foods that need delicate cooking to set and would be used for:

Cakes
Souffles
Flans
Custards
Quick breads and bread

A convection oven has a fan and an exhaust system. This ensures that hot air is distributed evenly around the oven and the food so that it cooks quickly. You would use this setting for:

Roasting – meat and vegetables cook faster and get crispy skins.
Toasting – convection is much more efficient
Pastries and pies – fat is melted and steam created much more quickly so pastry rises beautifully.
Casseroles – convection cooking is faster with little loss of moisture
Biscuits and cookies – you’ll be able to bake multiple trays without having to rotate"

Stick to your toaster and pot noodles mate. Jesus loves a club sandwich.
