Spray the Drip Tray, Tower, and Center Shield with cooking oil. Place Drip Tray into Main Body. 3. Insert Center Shield through center of Tower from the bottom, making sure the open end of shield is located at the bottom of the Tower. 4. Make sure the metal loop at the top of the Center Shield protrudes through the neck area of the bird. NOTE: With ® larger poultry, it will be necessary to fit the bird body down over the first (bottom) ring of Tower so the metal loop of the Center Shield extends through the front of the body cavity. Lift the bird, using the metal loop of Center Shield, and position bird over the center heating element of Main Body. Guide the bird down over center heating element until bottom of Tower rests on Drip Pan. Note: While cooking, the surface of the oven will become considerably hot, be sure to place the oven on a heat proof counter and use potholders. For larger birds, tie the wings down to the body to keep away from the heating elements. Meat Preparation 1. Plug cord into wall outlet and place the oven on a flat, even surface. 2. Spray the Center Shield and Drip Pan with spray-on cooking oil. Place Drip Tray into bottom of the Main Body. 3. For larger roasts, place meat on a plate or shallow pan. With a sharp knife, cut two x-shaped slits through center of meat to make room for Center Shield. 4. Insert metal loop, slide Center Shield and meat down over center heating element of Main Body as far as it will go. NOTE: With small roasts, use Tower to support meat. 5. Using the metal loop, slide Center Shield and meat down over center heating element of Main Body as far as it will go. NOTE: With small roasts, use Tower to support meat. Roasting 1.

NOTE: When removing roasts from the Center Shield (especially small roasts like pork tenderloin), consider cutting the roast off the shield by slicing it in half lengthwise.
