Electrical Installation

BOSE97X is 15 Amp with cable supplied, There is no plug supplied. It requires hard wiring by a qualified electrician.


This apparatus must be earthed.

The oven is only for domestic use.

The feed voltage and the absorbed power are as indicated on the data plate attached to the left-hand side upright, which can be seen when the oven door is open.

Connecting must be carried out by qualified personnel and in accordance with the regulations currently in force.

The manufacturer cannot be held responsible for any damages to persons or objects caused by failure to observe these instructions.

If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent or similarly qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard.

The oven must be connected to the mains through a multiple circuit breaker with a contact-to-contact

gap of at least 3 mm, making sure that the earth wire is not disconnected.

For connecting use a flexible cable of the HO5V2V2-F 3×1,5 mm2 type remembering to make it long enough to allow the oven to be removed from its housing unit when maintenance work is required.

To connect the cable to the oven, proceed as follows

  • Remove the lid by unfastening the three screws.
  • Unfasten the two screws for the cable holder and feed the cable through the opening immediately below the cover.

Oven Racks


Never use aluminum foil to cover the oven racks or to line the oven. It can cause damage to the oven liner if heat is trapped under the foil.


Make sure you do not force it to avoid damage to the enamel.

The oven has rack guides at five levels as per the below image.

Rack positions are numbered from the bottom rack guide (#1) to the top (#5). Check cooking charts for best rack positions to use when cooking. Each level guide consists of paired supports formed in the walls on each side of the oven cavity. Always be sure to position the oven racks before turning on the oven. Make sure that the racks are level once they are in position. The racks are designed to stop when pulled forward to their limit.

Extendable Telescopic Racks

2 of the racks in this oven are fully extendable telescopic racks and therefore these racks easily slide   out when used, which allows for easy convenience.

The extendable rack allows for easier access to cooking foods. It extends beyond the standard flat rack bringing the food closer to the user.


Make sure that:

  • When the rack is outside of the oven, slide arms do not lock. They could unexpectedly extend if the rack is carried incorrectly. Extending slide arms could cause injury. Rack should only be held or carried by grasping the sides.
  • To avoid burns, pull rack all the way out and lift pan above handle when transferring food to and from oven.

Cooking Functions


This oven has 7 specific cooking functions as follows:

Instructions for Use

Top and bottom elements only

A classic system also known as conventional cooking that uses upper and lower heat suitable for cooking a single dish. It is a good idea to insert the food when the oven has reached the pre-set temperature. If you need to increase the temperature towards the end of cooking, use the temperature regulation knob. We recommend opening the door as little as possible during cooking. It is best to use a single layer in the oven preferably keeping the food item in the center of the oven.

Fan forced cooking

For this type of cooking a fan positioned at the back allows the circulation of hot air inside the oven, creating uniform heat. In this way cooking is more rapid than conventional cooking. It is a suitable method for cooking dishes on more than one shelf, especially when the food is of different types (fish, meat etc.)

Grill Cooking

Use this function to grill or brown foods. Some ovens may be equipped with an electric motor, spit and skewers for turning on the spit.

Place the shelf with the food to be cooked in the 1st or 2nd position from the top. Pre-heat the oven for 5 minutes.

‘Temperature Regulation

Use the thermostat to set the temperature you require. The temperature can be adjusted from 0 to 250°C which is Max heat.

Oven Light Control

In order to achieve the best results in terms of performance and energy consumption, this function is automatically managed by the oven during its functioning. If you want to turn it on at any time, just turn the function knob on the control panel.

Oven Door Removal



Make sure that:

The oven is cool and power to the oven has been turned off before removing the door.

Failure to do so could result in electrical shock or burns.

  6. Screw the lens (1) back on.
  7. Turn power back on at the main power supply (fuse or breaker box).

Self-Cleaning Catalytic Liners

Our smooth walled ovens are fitted with self-cleaning panels to cover the walls on the rear and sides.

These special panels are simply hooked on to the walls before the side frames are fitted. They are coated in special, micro-porous catalytic enamel which oxidises and gradually vaporises splashes of grease and oil at cooking temperatures above 200° C .If the oven is not clean after cooking fatty foods, operate the empty oven for 60 minutes(max.) at maximum temperature on function fan forced or fan assist.

Never wash or clean self- cleaning panels with abrasive, acid, or alkaline products.

Guidance Temperature and Time Temperature for Cooking


Every function has a set temperature chosen on the basis of cooking tests using frequently used recipes and can easily be adjusted to suit personal preference.

The following table contains the results of the cooking tests carried out in our laboratories by a professional chef. However, this is merely a guide and the values indicated are simply to help you get started.
