Perhaps the shields have something to do with directing air current when using convection?....if that makes any sense...

WOW - did yours come with the Glass Lid? I'm sooo jealous, double ovens - I would love!!! Love black appliances or stainless.

Although Andy's link did not come thru - if you Google your make and model I think you will be able to tell that the shields are in the bottom oven.

I would not worry about "miss using" the appliance just because of the shield.

And sorry - I mis-read the dates on the thread, thought the question was from last week.

Blomberg Gas Cooker with Double Oven and Grill – GGN61Z

I think I found Andy's link... clic on the picture to enlarge and you will clearly see the shields on the bottom shelves.

Enjoy your cooker!

I also thought that but now that I've found the site - It is not a convection cooker.So have no idea their purpose, other than not letting the pie pan slide off the back!

Thanks for the pics. I have seen another one showing the metal strip in the top oven. The local store from which I purchased it say they are interchangeable but I am still not sure of the purpose. Not heard back from the manufacturer yet (very disappointed and not the usual standard from a German company).
I will be incommunicado for about a week as I am off in my camper to Wharfdale (Yorkshire hasn't quite caught up with the technology in the rest of the world yet!!!).
Thanks to everyone for your interest. I will let you know how I go on with Blomberg when I return.
