  5. 5. Accessories and gastronorm containers Recommendations on gastronorm containers application No professional kitchen can work without a set ofgastronorm containers of dijferentsizes and purposes: for cooking, warming- up, storing products and displaying prepared dishes. The gastronorm containers made ofstainless steel can be used at all cooking stages as they have high temperature resistance. After the cooking or warming-up products in gastronorm containers can be placed in to a hotstorage cabinet or a blast chiller. All the manufactures of gastronorm containers make them according to the global standards that provide global gastronorm dimensioning: all container sizes are measured in relation to the standard basic size. So, they can be used with almost all kinds of kitchen equipmentby different manufactures. The basic size is called GN 1/1 and has outer dimensions 530x325 mm. All the gastronorm containers are measured in relation to this basic size: 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/6, 1/9, 2/1, 2/3, 2/4. Thegastronorm container depth is specified in millimeters and can be 20, 40, 65, 1 00, 1 50 or200 mm. You can also fit yourgastronorm containers together with lids.

The non-stick baking sheets are used both with the non- coated baking trays and with the containers with damaged coating. The baking sheets do not need to be precalcinated before using.
  8. 8. Bakery paper The bakery paper is primary used to prevent pastry sticking on the baking moulds and trays as well as to eliminate the necessity of washing the cookware after baking. The dough can be rolled out on the parchmentpaper directly to avoid tearing the thin sheets up when carrying them over from the working table. Some shortcrust pastries can be rolled outonbl between two sheets of parchment paper or cling film. Bakery paper types The most popular bakery paper is a parchment paper coated with a thin layer of silicone which is the best release agent when baking pastry, sponge cakes included. At the same time the silicone coating is waterproof it does not absorb oils and there is no need to grease it additionally. It can be used for baking any type of pastry for several times with an exception of sponge cakes baking ( it is impossible to use it again in this case). Moreover, the parchment paper can be used for wrapping meat and fish when baking as well. There is also a parchment paper designated for baking bread which is temperature-resistant to even 280- 300 °C. The silicone bakery paper is staying apart from other bakery paper types due to its heavy silicone coating and is usually sold notin reels butin sheets. SAGA Cooking Paper The waterproof both-side coa ted silicone cooking paper SAGA is suitable not only for baking but for all kinds of cooking. You do not need to grease trays and baking moulds with oil if you line them with this professional paper.

  9. 9. STANDARD COOKING MODES AND FUNCTIONS The «CONVECTION + STEAM» mode (the combined mode) The «CONVECTION + STEAM» mode is a mode combining the benefits both ofthe steam cookers and ofthe convection ovens. While cooking in the combined mode the hot air circulates together with the steam supplied in to the chamber. I t ensures getting succulent meals and avoids their over-drying and burning. This mode is perfect for baking, stewing and frying, large-size products cooking (pork, beefi poultry, fish). The food can be prepared almost without using grease and oil, the shrinkage losses are minimized, the uniform browning is guaranteed. The combined mode is applicable for cooking the majority of the classic second courses (garnishes, stews, pilafi lasagne, casserole dishes, staffed vegetables, cutlets, omeletts and difierentpies}. When cooking in the «CONVECTION + STEAM» mode the time, temperature and humidity settings are available. The products are cooked quicker and the shrinkage decreases by almost 50% in comparison with traditional cooking. When cooking in the «CONVECTION + STEAM» mode the time, the chamber temperature and the temperature probe settings are available; the fan speed and the humidity level can be regulated as well. The cooking process ends when the preset time is passed or the preset core temperature of the product is achieved. The buzzer will inform you that the process is over. You can change the chamber temperature, the time and the temperature probe settings as well as the fan speed and the humidity level withoutceasing the cooking process. You can open the doorat any momentwhile cooking. The fan stops and the heating elements are switched off in this case while the cooking time is still passing by. After closing the door both the fan and the heating elements resume working automatically. Recommendations on the combined mode You do not need to turn over the products while cooking. Put a non-perforatedgastronorm container with aromatic spices or vegetable mix under the grid for collecting the excess juices. Then cook this semi-finished product with a broth base to make a sauce. Do not cook stews without sauce or broth. The optimal temperature mode for roasting is from 140°C to 160°C. The shrinkage losses are minimal in this case. If the product does notget sufiicient browning preset the maxim um temperature and the maxim um fan speed forseveral minutes.

  10. 10. The «CONVECTION» mode (no 270°C) In the «CONVECTION» mode the products are cooked by the hotair circulating with the help ofa fan athigh speed flows around the product from all sides. No steam is supplied into the chamber. This mode is perfect for casseroles, soufflés, mousses, pdte’, grilling vegetables, frying meat, fish, steaks, bone-in and boneless loin. In the «CONVECTION» mode you can also cook different desserts, sponge cakes, cupcakes, muffins, shortcrust pastry, puff pastry and choux pastry, croissants, strudels, bread and baguettes, buns. This mode is also applicable for the sneak food and semi-finished products that are usually cooked in the deep fiyer. When cooking in the «CONVECTION» mode the time, the chamber temperature and the temperature probe settings are available; the fan speed can be regulated as well. The cooking process ends when the preset time is passed or the preset core temperature of the product is achieved. The buzzer will inform you that the process is over. You can change the chamber temperature, the time and the temperature probe settings as well as the fan speed withoutceasing the cooking process. You can open the door at any momentwhile cooking. The fan stops and the heating elements are switched off in this case while the cooking time is still passing by. After closing the door both the fan and the heating elements resume working automatically. Recommendations on the «CONVECTION» mode One of the advantages of the «CONVECTION» mode is a guaran tee of gettin g uniformly browned crunchy crackling products. It allows preparing French fries without deep frying. Non-prefried products will be better if they are smeared or sprinkled with oil. Use special grids to give yoursteaks a perfectgrilling pattern and to cook the large-sized product quicker. The temperature in the chamber should be 10-20% lower and the cooking time should be 5-10 minutes shorter in comparison with traditional cooking due to uniform and quickerheatdistribution in the chamber. It is possible to cook meats and fish at low temperature in the «CONVECTION» mode. It is no secret that the products loose the majority of proteins, vitamins, minerals, colors, enzymes and carbohydrates at high temperatures. The overheating destructs them. The low-temperature cooking is the only way to preserve the vitamins and other valuable nutrients sensitive to the heat treatment. The product simmered in the combi steamer remains succulent and loses neither its natural taste and flavor nor its nutritional value [itis also possible to cook the products all-nigh t). I t is proved to be importantby the nutrition specialists. The confectionary and bakery product should be baked according to their specific characteristics. The baking method may dependon theprotein contentoftheflourused, on the combination ofthe ingredients oron thefullproofing time. I t is recommended to bake the confectionary and bakery products on perforated aluminium gastronorm containers and Silicon or Teflon coated baking trays. When baking pastiy we recommend not to place the products too close to each other and to the edges of the gastronorm containers as well as to load everysecond level with gastronorm containers forbetterhotair circulation.

It is one ofthe most effective cooking methods we recommend to use regularly. You will take a real advantage of using core temperature probe when cooking, for example, large-size meat which requires to be cookedfor a long time. In this case the cooking time will not depend on time settings but on the core temperature of the product. It is practically impossible to overdo the meat when its core temperature is monitored. The shrinkage losses are minimized due to the overall cooking process control. The temperature probe is on the right-hand side inside the chamber. Take the probe out ofthe holder and insert its tip as deep asyou can in the middle part ofthe product. Preset the core product temperature to be achieved atthe end of the cooking process. When cooking with the temperature probe the chamber temperature settings are available; the fan speed and the humidity level can be regulated as well. The cooking process ends when the preset core temperature of the product is achieved. The buzzer will inform you thatthe process is over. You can change the chamber temperature, the settings ofthe temperature probe, thefan speed and the humidity level without ceasing the cooking process. You can open the door at any moment while cooking. Thefan stops and the heating elements are switched ojf in this case while the cooking time is still passing by. After closing the door both the fan and the heating elements resume working automatically. Recommendations on the multi-point temperature probe application [The function of determining the core product temperature) When setting temperature in the chamber bear it in mind that it should be higher than the selected core temperature of the product. The smaller the temperature dijference between the chamber temperature and the core temperature of the product (A t 40-60°C] is, the better the organoleptic characteristics of the product [such as succulence, tenderness, texture) will be. The delicate cooking is ensured and the shrinkage and moisture losses are minimized. The temperature probe can be used with all the basic cooking programs which can increase the cooking eflectiveness by 50%. When cooking with the use ofthe temperature probe insert it in the core part ofthe raw product when the chamber is preheated already. Waitfor a minute until the probe indicates the actual core temperature of the product and start cooking.

Shock freezers and blast chillers become an integral partofcooking process due to theirability ofrapid cooling while maintaining intact productquality. It is normal when even the fine dining restaurants use the semi-finished products of high quality. Every restaurateur carries about the quick warming prepared meals up to serving temperature withoutlosing quality. You can warm up all kinds ofprepared meals using the «WARMING UP WI TH STEAM» mode. Due to the steam supply regulation there will be condensate neither on thesurface of the food noron the gastronorm containers orplates. When cooking in the « WARMING UP WITH STEAM»mode the time and the chamber temperature settings are available; the fan speed can be regulated as well. Recommendations on «WARMING UP WITH STEAM» mode The main rule: the products cooked in the «CONVECTION+STEAM» mode should be warmed up in the «CON VEC TION+STEAM» mode; the products cooked in the «CONVECTION» modeshould be warmed up in the «CONVECTION» mode. COOKING SECRETS For perfect cooking results the following recommen da tions should be taken in to account: - The chamber of the combi steamer should be preheated before cooking. Otherwise the product edges will be overroasted. Moreover, the cooking time will have to be increased in this case. To preheat the chamber switch on the combi steamer and leave it working 1 0-15 minutes at the temperature 30°C higher than you need for cooking. You can also preheat the chamber before loading frozen products and before full-load cooking. The chamber is preheated quicker when the fan works at its maxim um speed. - The combi steamer will stop cooking when the preset time is passed or when the preset temperature of the probe is achieved. The buzzer will inform you that the process is completed. You can change the temperature, time, humidity and probe settings withoutceasing the cooking process. You can open the door at any moment while cooking. The fan stops and the heating elements are switched ofi‘ in this case. After closing the door they resume working automatically. ' The oven door can be opened atany moment while cooking and even in the case ofpower cut. ° Do not overload the chamber as the cooking will be longer in this case and you can be dissatisfied with the quality of the dishes. When you are going to load the chamber partially the gastronorm containers should be placed one by one from the central to the upper and lower levels. When loading and unloading the chamber you shouldfix the door at 135°C to avoid breaking the glass. 12
  15. 15. - Close the door accurately to provide its proper contact with the gasket to avoid burning of the rubbergasket. ' The doorof the combisteamershould be closed when itstands idle fora long time. -The products cooked ata time should be about thesame size and thickness. Do not place the products too close to the chamber walls.

To cook using alcohol. WASHING AND MAINTENANCE OF THE COMBI STEAMER You should prepare the combi steamer for washing. Take outall the gastronorm containers, the grease filterand the guide rails from the chamber. For better result it is recommended to leave the combi steamer working in the «CON VEC TION+STEAM» mode for 5-1 0 minutes before washing to soften consolidated grease and dirty spots. Then spread your cleansing agentover the inner chamber surface and switch on the «CONVECTION+STEAM» mode for 15 minutes. Rinse the chamber. Repeat the procedure ifthe soiled spots are left. Then wipe the chamber and switch on the «CONVECTION» modefor 10 minutes. We recommend leaving the oven door open after the washing. The leng th of the service life of the combi steamer as well as the quality of the food you cook using it depends to a large extent on the appropriate constantmaintenance of the appliance. It is notonly washing. It is total care of the device: 1. Shut the oven door with care. Do not turn the doorhandle with force. Do notstack trays, pots, plates and oven mittens on the combi steamer. Do not touch the control panel by oily hands. Change waterfilters (for water supply} regularly. Do not use the combi steamer for uninten dedpurposes. 2. Wash the chamber of the combi steamer every day. It is the main rule. The recommended cleansing and rinsing agen ts should be applied for this aim. Do not start washing while the temperature in the chamber is above 80 °C. Strictly observe safety measures when working with chemical liquids. 3. It is recommended to discharge water from thesteam genera tor 1'f you are not going to use the combi steamer for along time. 4. The door glazing and the rubber gasket require gentle treatment. The abrasive powder detergents are their worst enemies. Do not use them ifyou do not want the glazing to become frosted and non-transparent. 5. The drip collector is non-detachable buti t can be easily cleaned and washed by a sponge with a liquid dishwashing detergent. 13
  16. 16. 6. Wipe the external surfaces of the combi steamer using a special stainless steel cleaner for this aim. Never wash the external surfaces of the combi steamer with the use of the hand shower the appliance is equipped with. 7. Wash the temperature probe every day. Clean itfrom all the food left-over. Wash it with a liquid dishwashing detergent, rinse and patit dry with a papernapkin and disinfect the probe. In conclusion, monitor the overall state of the appliance. Remember that there are no trifle problems as far as the high technologies are concerned. Any minor problem can bring a lotof troubles in future ifyou do notpay due attention to it. How to guarantee the long service life of the rubbergasket Sooner or later all the things are deteriorated and should be replaced. Despite the continuous improvement of the modern materials there is no eternally durable rubberso far. The following reasons shorten its service life. - 1. High temperature. 2. Mechanical impacts: the impact pressure when shutting the door, fan rotation vibration, continuous elastic deformation when the door is closed ( the material in ternal stress accumulation]. 3. Chemical impact by the detergents. Despite the rubber is considered as a material resistant to alkaline and acid attack this resistance is not absolute. The impact by oil and grease is nei ther good for rubber. 4. Local overheating. If there are dirty spots or consolidated grease or on the rubber these areas will be overheated. The rubber gasketwill warp as a result due to the thermal conductivity and thermal capacity difiference. 5. Dehydration. As a result of dehydra tion the gasket loses its elasticity. It is impossible to violate the physical laws and to stop the chemical reactions. But it is possible to slow the deterioration processes. The main rule is to keep the rubber gasket always clean. At the end of every working day wash the gasket clean from all the grease and spoils using only mild liquid detergents for this aim. Then thoroughly wash the detergent off with water. Regularly lubricate the gasket with silicone grease. When you don't use the combi steamer leave its door opened to straighten out the gasket. Thehandshower The hand shower is the most commonly broken part of the combi steamer: It consists of a hose and a showerhead. If the water leaks from the hand shower renew the gaskets and inspect the connection of the showerhead to the hose. Do not touch it by oily hands. Do not use abrasive powder detergents to clean it. Use only mild liquid detergents for this aim. So you will extend the service life of the hand shower. Descaling There are always dissolved salts in the water. When boiling some of them precipitate as lim escale on the in tern al surfaces of the steam generator. The limescale should be eliminated regularly as it impairs the operation ofthe combi steamer, prevents its proper cleaning and deteriorates the taste of the products cooked in the combi steamer. To avoid these effects and to extend the service life of the combi steamer it is recommended to descale the steam generator regularly. This procedure is often neglected butitis worth the costand does notrequire a lotofefiforts. The guide for beginner chefs If the combi steamer does not work «suddenly» Your quick response: 1. First of all do not forget what has happened before the failure. There might have been extraneous or scratching noise, vibrations or foreign odors, the lights mighthave failed in the kitchen due to the power cut or the water supply might have been suspended. It will help you to pinpoint the problem. 2. Carry out the visual examination of the combi steamer. Make sure that there are no visible damages on the surface and the door is closed tightly. 3. Verijjl that the combi steamer is connected to the power supply, the plug is pushed into the socket until tight and the appropriate circuit breaker in the breaker box is closed. 14

Verijjl that the combi steamer is connected to the water supply, the water supply is not suspended at all, the taps are not turned off and the waterhoses are notpinched. 6. If the steam is notsupplied in to the chamber verijjz that the tap is turned back after the laststeam genera tor discharge. 7. If there is no wa ter from the hand shower verify that the appropriate tap that is situated below from the leftside of the combi steamer is not turned ofi‘. 8. Make sure that the drainage pipes and the water hoses are notdamaged, all the pipes and hoses are connected correctly and the water disposal system is notblocked. 9. Then look at the control panel and record the code of the error or some other numerical symbols indicated on the panel if there are some. 10. Scrutinize the manual as it can answer the majority ofyour possible questions. 11. If you cannot solve the problem by yourself disconnect the combi steamer, turn ofi‘ the water taps and call to Technical Service. Forward all the information aboutyour problem to theservice specialists. 12. Do not use the faulty equipment. It may endanger your safety and make the situation worse.
