Do not operate appliance with damaged
cord or plug or after the appliance

Do not place on or near a hot gas or
electric burner.
When operating the oven, keep at least four
inches of free space on all sides of the

before cleaning. Allow to cool before
putting on or taking off parts, and before
cleaning.
To disconnect, turn the time control button
to OFF, then remove the plug. Always hold
the plug, and never pull the cord.
Extreme caution must be used when
moving a drip pan containing hot oil or
other hot liquids.
Do not cover crumb tray or any part of the
oven with metal foil. This may cause the
oven to overheat.
Use extreme caution when removing the
tray, racks or disposing of hot grease or
other hot liquids.
Do not clean the inside of the oven with
metal scouring pads. Pieces can break off
the pad and touch electrical parts, creating
a risk of electric shock.
16. Oversized foods or metal utensils must not
be inserted in a toaster oven as they may
create a fire or risk of electric shock.
17. A fire may occur if the oven is covered or
touching flammable material, including
curtains, draperies, walls and the like when
in operation. Do not place any items on the
oven during operation.
18. Extreme caution should be exercised when

use.
This unit has a short power supply cord to
Reduce the risk resulting from becoming
entangled in or tripping over a long cord. An
extension cord may be used if you are careful in
its use:
1. The electrical rating of the extension
cord should be at least as great as the
electrical rating of the appliance.
2. An extension cord with the power cord
must be arranged so that it will not drape
over the countertop or tabletop where they
can be pulled on by children or tripped
over accidentally.

oven is in operation. If desired, wipe the walls with a damp sponge, cloth
or nylon scouring pad and mild detergent. DO NOT USE STEEL WOOL
SCOURING PADS, ABRASIVE CLEANERS OR SCRAPE THE WALLS
WITH A METAL UTENSIL, AS ALL OF THESE METHODS MAY
DAMAGE THE CONTINUOUS CLEAN COATING.
All accessories should be washed in hot soapy water or can be cleaned in
a dishwasher. The door can be wiped with a damp sponge and wiped dry
with a paper or cloth towel. Clean the outside with a damp sponge. DO
NOT USE AN ABRASIVE CLEANER AS IT MAY DAMAGE THE

Read all the sections of this booklet and follow all the instructions carefully.
Before Using Your Convection Toaster Oven
1. Read all of the instructions included in this manual.
2. Make sure that the oven is unplugged and the time control is in the
“OFF” position.
3. Wash all the accessories in hot, soapy water or in the dishwasher.
4. Thoroughly dry all accessories and re-assemble in oven. Plug oven into
outlet and you are ready to use your new Toaster Oven with Convection.
5. After re-assembling your oven, we recommend that you run it at the
highest temperature (450°F.) on the toast function for approximately 15
minutes to eliminate any packing residue that may remain after shipping.
This will also remove all traces of odor initially present.
Please Note:
Initial start-up operation may result in minimal smell and
smoke (about 15 minutes). This is normal and harmless.
It is due to burning of the protective substance applied to
the heating elements in the factory.
Keep Warm
Keep cooked food warm for up to 30 minutes. Longer periods of time are
not recommended as food will become dry or will spoil.
Operation
• Set the temperature control to 180°F.

CAUTION:
When sliding trays out of oven, always
support the rack. Do not let go until you are
sure the rack is securely supported by the
rack handle.
Convection Cooking
Convection cooking combines hot air movement by means of a fan with the
regular features (broil, bake and toast). Convection cooking provides faster
cooking in many cases than regular radiant types toaster ovens. The fan gently
sends air to every area of the food, quickly browning, crisping and sealing in
moisture and flavor. It produces more even temperature all around the food by
air movement, so that food cooks/bakes/broils evenly versus the normal ovens
hot and cold spots. The convection feature allows cooking/baking at lower
temperatures, which saves energy and helps keep the kitchen cooler.
Convection air is superheated and it circulates around the food so it cooks food
significantly faster than conventional ovens.
Using Your Convection Toaster Oven
Please familiarize yourself with the following oven functions and accessories
prior to first use:
• Temperature Control - Choose the desired temperature from 180°F (Keep
Warm) to 450°F for baking, broiling, toasting or grilling.

Broiling with Convection
Baking with Convection
The top heating elements cycle on and off to maintain maximum
temperature in the oven. For best results, the oven should be
preheated for 20 minutes at 450°F before adding the food to be broiled.
In the convection oven, it is not necessary to turn the food because the
fan circulates the hot air around the food. The food must be placed on
the broiling rack fitted into the drip pan to allow the circulation of air.
Convection baking is very consistent and even. The oven heats quickly, so
preheating is not necessary or desirable. The fan circulates the hot air around
the food making baked goods rise quickly and evenly.
Bake your favorite cookies, cakes, pies, brownies, etc. The bakeware that will
fit in your oven are up to 9 inches in length. We do not recommend the use of
oven roasting bags or glass containers in the oven. Never use plastic,
cardboard, paper or anything similar in the oven.
Operation
• Set Temperature Control to 450°F.
• Turn Function Control to Broil/Convection.
• Preheat the oven.
• Place the broiler rack on the drip pan.
• Place the food on the broiler rack and slide into the top rack
support guide or middle rack support guide depending on the
thickness of the food that you are cooking.
• Food should be placed as close as possible to the top heating element
without touching it.
• Set temperature control to the appropriate temperature.
• Brush food with sauces or oil, as desired.
• Turn Time Control to position “Stay On”.
• It is advisable to leave the door slightly ajar.
• When broiling is complete, turn the time control to “OFF”.
Note: Position the bake rack in the lowest support guide.
Operation
• Place the bake rack in the lowest or middle rack support guide
depending on the height of the pan or according to the recipe.

however it is necessary to rotate them (i.e. move the top to the bottom
and the bottom to the top) halfway through the cooking time.

Baking Cookies
For baking cookies, we suggest adjusting baking temperature and using the
cookie sheets placed on the baking racks. Also, using parchment paper on
the cookie sheets might prove helpful when baking certain types of cookies.

Use parchment paper on cookie sheets so cookies will not stick.
Cookie sheets, baking times and temperatures may differ from
those necessary when using other baking materials.
Note: Convection air is superheated and it circulates around the food, so it cooks food
faster. When baking your favorite recipes or packaged goods, follow recipe
instructions. Check the baked goods a few minutes before the shortest recommended
baking time.
