Information You Need To know
WARNING
ANTI-TIP Block REQUIRED
ABOUT CHILDREN AND THE Warming
Drawer
To reduce the risk of tipping of the drawer, the Anti-Tip
block must be properly installed. Refer to the Installation
Instructions for placement.
Children below the age of 7 should use the Warming Drawer
only with a supervising person very near to them. For children
between the ages of 7 and 12, the supervising person should
be in the same room. The child must be able to reach the
Warming Drawer comfortably.
Burn Hazard
• Do not touch any of the surfaces inside or outside the
Warming Drawer during or immediately after use. After
use, make sure these surfaces have had sufficient time to
cool before touching them.
At no time should anyone be allowed to lean or swing on the
Warming Drawer.
Children should be taught all safety precautions: use dry
potholders, remove coverings carefully, pay special attention
to packages that crisp food because they may be extra hot.
• Exercise caution when opening the drawer. Let hot air or
steam escape before looking or reaching into the Warming
Drawer.
Don't assume that because a child has mastered one cooking
skill he/she can cook everything.
• Use only dry pot holders when removing food and
cookware from the Warming Drawer. Wet pot holders can
cause steam burns.
Children need to understand that the Warming Drawer is
not a toy.
Aluminum Foil Usage
Food Safety
• Do not use aluminum foil to line any part of the
Warming Drawer. Using a foil liner could result in a fire
hazard or the obstruction of the flow of heat and ventilation
air. Foil is an excellent heat insulator and heat will be
trapped underneath it. This trapped heat can upset the
performance of the Warming Drawer parts.
The purpose of the Warming Drawer is to hold hot cooked
foods at serving temperature. Always start with hot food; cold
food cannot be heated or cooked in the Warming Drawer.
When warming foods in oven safe glass and/or glass ceramic
container, a higher temperature setting may be needed
compared to heating in metal containers
• To avoid excess condensation inside the drawer, foods may
be covered with aluminum foil. This will also help keep
the food from drying out.
Opening the drawer during use and/or adding more items
will allow the hot air to escape and may require more time
for the temperature in the drawer to stabilize.
Maximum Capacity
Be sure to maintain safe food temperature. The USDA recommends holding hot food at 140˚F or warmer.
• Do not place more than 50 pounds in the drawer.
To keep several foods hot together, set the temperature
according to the food needing the highest setting. Place items
needing highest temperature on the bottom of the drawer and
food needing less heat on the tray.
Other
• Never use your appliance for warming or heating the
room.
• The use of accessory attachments not recommended by
Sharp may cause injuries.
• Never leave the drawer open and unattended.
About Utensils and Coverings
for safe Warming and reheating
• Always use oven-safe dishes and cookware in this
appliance.
• Cover food with an oven-safe lid or aluminum foil.
• Check with manufacturer of dishes and cookware for their
maximum heat tolerance.
About Unpacking and Examining
Your WARMING Drawer
1 Remove all packing materials from inside the Warming
Drawer.
2 Remove the feature sticker, if there is one. Check the
DO NOT USE
drawer for any damage, such as misaligned or bent drawer,
damaged drawer seals and sealing surfaces, broken or loose

confined area, any steam that is present will condense. If you
preheat your Warming Drawer, there will be less chance of
water due to condensation. Preheat times vary depending on

Proof.
• Press TIME until the indicator light is on next to 1 hour.
• Close the Variable Humidity Control.
Air Vents
• Lightly oil the top of the dough. The bowl should be large
enough to allow the dough to double in size. Cover the
bowl with a cloth.
Slide control for
moisture adjustment
• Preheating is not required.
• Check after 40 minutes. The dough should double in
size. Adjust the time as needed for the dough to double
in size and a gentle touch of a finger results in a slight
depression.
To keep foods moist
Slide the Variable Humidity Control to the "Moist" setting.
This closes the vent and seals the moisture inside the drawer.
With the vent closed, hot foods stay moist and soft. In this
setting, condensation may occur around the inside edge of
the drawer.
Temperature and Humidity
Control Setting Guidelines
Different foods require different temperature and humidity
settings. Use the chart on the following page as a guide.
To keep foods crisp
Slide the variable Humidity Control to the "Crisp" setting.
This opens the vents and allows the moisture to escape.
You can set the Warming Drawer temperature to any of the
6 settings. Cover the food if desired to maintain heat and
moisture.
CAUTION With the vents open, it is normal for moisture
to collect on surfaces above the Warming Drawer.
When keeping several types of food hot, choose the setting
based on the highest recommended temperature. Place those
foods needing the highest temperature on the bottom of the
drawer, those requiring lower temperature on the rack.
To Crisp Stale Items
• Place food in low sided dishes or pans.
• Preheat on LOW setting and open the vent.
It is not recommended to hold foods in the Warming Drawer
for longer than 1 hour. Smaller quantities and/or heat sensitive
foods such as eggs should not be held for more than 30
minutes.
• Check crispness after 45 minutes. Add time as needed.
To Warm Serving Bowl and Plates
Warm serving bowls and plates at the LOW setting.
Food must be cooked and be at serving temperature before
being placed in the Warming Drawer.
• Use heat-safe dishes only. Place the empty dishes on the
rack. Check with the manufacturer if you want to heat to
a higher temperature or when heating fine china or other
delicate items.
