Important Safety Instructions
Read all instructions before using the steam oven.
• Do not use the oven if it is visibly damaged and/or there is
visible smoke coming from the oven. Keep door closed and
immediately disconnect from electrical supply.
• Use this oven only indoors and for its intended use as
described in this manual. Never use your oven for warming
or heating the room. This is based on safety considerations.
• Your unit should be installed by a qualified technician. The
oven must be installed and electrically grounded according
to local codes.
• The oven should only be installed and operated in a room
with a temperature between 41°F (5°C) and 95°F (35°C). In
the event of frost, there is a danger that residual water left
in the pumps can freeze, causing damage.
• Before using the newly installed oven, follow the steps that
should be taken before operating the oven for the first time.
• Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of this oven
unless specifically recommended in this manual. All servicing
should be referred to a qualified technician. Warranty service
must be performed by an authorized service agency.
• Children should not be left alone in the kitchen while the
oven is in use.
CAUTION
Do not store items of interest to children over the unit.
Children climbing to reach items could be seriously injured.
• Packaging material can be dangerous. Danger of suffocation!
Dispose of packaging material according to local regulations.
• Use only dry pot holders. Moist or damp potholders on hot
surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let potholder
touch surface areas. Do not use towel or bulky cloth.
• Keep area clean and free from combustible materials,
gasoline, and other flammable liquids. Never use your oven
as a storage space. Combustible items (paper, plastic, etc.)
may ignite and metallic items may become hot and cause
burns. Do not pour spirits over hot foods. Do not leave oven
unsupervised when drying herbs, breads, mushrooms, etc; fire
hazard.
• Always position oven racks in desired location while oven is
cool. If rack must be moved while oven is hot, do not let pot
holder contact hot heating element in oven.
• Use care when opening and touching oven door. Let hot air
or steam escape before removing or replacing food. Do not
touch glass window on door. Hot air or steam can cause
burns to hands, face, and/or eyes. Do not sit or rest on the
oven door.
• Keep oven vents unobstructed. The oven vent is located at
the front of the oven and vents into the room. In ProBake
cooking, steam may escape from the steam vent.
• Do not clean door gasket. It is essential for a good tight
seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage, or move the
gasket.
• Allow sufficient time for the oven to cool before cleaning.
Use a damp soft cloth to remove any residual water in the
bottom of the oven cavity. Do not use steam cleaners or
spray the inside or outside of the oven with water.
• No commercial oven cleaner or oven liner protective coating
such as aluminum foil should be used in or around any part
of the oven. Improper oven liners may result in a risk of
electric shock or fire. Keep oven free from grease buildup.
• DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR
SURFACES OF THE OVEN. Heating elements may be hot
even though they are dark in color. Interior surfaces of an
oven become hot enough to cause burns. During and after
use, do not touch or let clothing or other flammable
materials contact heating elements or interior surfaces of
oven until they have had sufficient time to cool. Other
surfaces of the oven may become hot enough to cause
burns, such as the oven vent opening, the surface near the
vent opening, and the oven door window.
• Keep this use and care manual for future reference. If you
sell the oven or pass it on to a third party, make sure the use
and care manual accompany the installation instructions.
• Do not heat unopened food containers; buildup of pressure
may cause the container to explode and result in injury.

The operating functions available are described below. The recommended
baking and roasting temperatures given in older recipe books are likely to
be too high and the recommended rack positions in the cooking space
not ideal. Note that the temperatures and times given in the following
tables are based on typical methods of preparing food, and should only
be used as a guide.
Steaming
This function uses steam
which flows from the boiler
into the oven, heating and
steaming the food. Use this

Steaming Tips
Because of variations in food density, surface texture, and consistency,
some foods may be prepared more successfully using steam.
• When using the steamer tray, placing the multi-purpose cooking tray
underneath reduces condensation and avoids spills on the bottom of
the oven.
• Use steamer tray to steam vegetables. Add salt and seasoning to
vegetables after cooking.
• When steaming meat or fish, use the steamer tray, lightly coated with
butter or non stick spray.
• When extracting juice from fruit or berries, place the multi-purpose
cooking tray under the steamer tray.
• Place custards, creme desserts, or yogurt in a dish and place on the
steamer tray.
• Place rice, pasta, or dried legumes with water in a glass or porcelain
dish and place on wire rack.
• Rice or pastas can be cooked along with vegetables with similar cooking
times to save energy.
• If the door is opened while steaming, cooking will stop. To resume
cooking, close the door and press the knob.

ProBake Cooking Tips
• When baking loaves of bread, buns, or layer cakes, place the dough
on the multi-purpose cooking tray. Allow the dough to proof briefly,
approximately 10 minutes before cooking.
• When baking puff pastry (with or without a filling/fresh or deep
frozen), place the puff pastry on the multi-purpose cooking tray. It is
not necessary to brush the top of the puff pastry. Set the temperature
slightly lower for yeast dough.
• The oven door should not be opened during the steaming phase.
Cold air will extend the steaming phase and bread will be
oversteamed and flat.
• The optimum baking temperature for buns and rolls is generally
higher than a single loaf of bread. For large breads reduce the
temperature by 50°F to 60°F.
To achieve best results, the oven must cool between two ProBake
cooking sessions until <Residual Heat> no longer appears in the text
display.

close the door.
• Dehydrate: If the oven temperature is below 210°F (100°C), it is
possible to operate TruConvec™ cooking with the door open to dry
foods such as fruits and vegetables.
• When cooking with convection, reduce the temperature by 25˚F (10˚C).
Some recipes may require adjustment and testing when converting
from conventional to convection cooking. Compare temperatures in
the chart to recipes. If you suspect the temperature is too high, select
a lower temperature.
• If the food is nice and brown on the outside but still raw in the middle,
the oven temperature is too high. Slightly reduce the temperature and
lengthen the cooking time.
Even browning is achieved at lower temperatures.

• Avoid opening the oven door frequently. This can lengthen
the cooking time significantly, especially when steaming.
• Only turn the light on when needed.
• To save energy when baking for longer cooking times, turn
the oven off approximately 10 to 15 minutes before the
cooking time is completed and use the heat that is retained
in the oven to finish cooking the foods. Do not use this
method when cooking soufflés, sponge cakes, or puff
pastries.
