In the beginning, there was
Wolfgang Puck. There were
cooks and there were kitchens
and there were people eating
food, but the world had never
seen anything like Spago—
with its California cuisine, its
casual elegance, and its chef
whose genuine warmth and
love of craft redefined the
dining experience. And they
came—from LA and from
everywhere—to
experience
the future. Wolfgang Puck
shaped the modern culinary
landscape: he was the first
celebrity chef, the inventor
of fusion cuisine, the first in
farm-to-table. His work is
inspired by California living,
and an insistence on only the
freshest ingredients. From
his legendary fine dining icons, his entrepreneurial spirit has built
an empire—from dining, to catering, to products for the home—
touching the lives of millions around the globe. Today, as always,
Chef Puck is earnestly, restlessly, tirelessly at work behind the scenes
inventing what’s next. He is driven by a genuine love of his craft, a
passion for what’s possible, and its potential to change the world.

Use & Care References
Vent Release Valve
Used to maintain low pressure (1 psi) in the oven during the cooking
process. The VENT RELEASE VALVE has two settings, SEAL (see fig. 4
on page 14) to maintain the pressure, and VENT (see fig. 5 on page 14) to
release pressure at the end of the cooking process.
NOTE: By design the VENT RELEASE VALVE rests loosely on top of the
vent valve. This allows the VENT RELEASE VALVE to rise up and down
during the cooking process to maintain the proper pressure.
Sealing Lever
Your oven has the ability to cook in standard toaster oven mode or in
pressure mode. To cook in standard mode leave the SEALING LEVER
in the up position STANDARD (see fig. 6 on page 14) and the VENT
RELEASE VALVE in the VENT position (see fig. 5 on page 14). To cook in
pressure mode, lower the SEALING LEVER to the SEAL position (see fig.
7 on page 14) and the VENT RELEASE VALVE to the SEAL position (see
fig. 4 on page 14).

Helpful Hints
• Your oven can be used in standard conventional mode or pressure
mode. In conventional mode, there is no need to change recipe
cooking times or temperature. In pressure mode, cooking times will be
shorter depending upon type of food being cooked. See the various
cooking charts, guidelines, and recipes throughout this manual for
adjusted cooking times in pressure mode, then experiment with your
own favorite recipes.
• When roasting meats, it is always best to use the middle rack position
being sure that your food does not contact the upper heating
elements. This will ensure better carmelization of your meats.
• Always preheat your oven to the desired temperature before adding
food.
• It is not necessary to rotate foods halfway through cooking cycle as
your oven provides even heat distribution.
• Water can be added directly to the DRIP/BAKING PAN for foods such
as fish and vegetable to provide steam.
• For better results, you should always bake food that has been
thoroughly thawed. The only exception to this is rule is when baking
packaged frozen dinners and/or pizzas. Follow the manufacturer’s
instructions for required time.
• Always distribute the food evenly around the inside of the oven. Give
equal space around the pans as well as above and below.
• Rules of thumb when cooking in pressure mode: poultry cooks about
70% faster; roasts (beef, pork, etc.) cook about 50% faster; casseroles,
vegetables and baked goods cook about 25% faster. If you are not
sure, underestimate the cook time and check the temperature before
eating. Always cook meats to the internal temperature recommended
by the US FDA.
Note: If additional cooking time is required in Pressure Mode, place
the food back into the oven, set the VENT RELEASE VALVE back to
SEAL, and lower the SEALING LEVER to the SEAL position. Pressure
will restore immediately.

¹According to the US FDA cook pork, roasts, and chops to 145°F as measured with a food thermometer before removing meat from the heat source, with a three-minute
rest time before carving or consuming. This will result in a product that is both safe and at its best quality - juicy and tender. Visit www.foodsafety.gov for more tips.

Solution
Oven does not turn on
Unit is Unit
not plugged
is not plugged
in, or circuit
in, or circuit
breakerbreaker
is tripped
is tripped
Ensure that your Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven is plugged into a proper 120V A.C. grounded outlet. If your unit still does not turn on check the circuit
breaker or fuse for the outlet you are using and ensure that it is closed. Your
oven uses 1,700 watts and should be the only appliance in the outlet.
Timer is not engaged
Ensure that the Timer is set to a specific time. For times less than 20
minutes, turn the Timer past the 30 minute mark, and then back to the
desired time.
A protective coating is applied
to the heating elements prior to
shipment
Conduct a trial run according to page 10 of your manual to ensure that
all smoke and odor is burned
Grease or food particles have
come in contact with the heating
elements
Ensure that your food does not contact the heating elements while
cooking
Excess grease and food particles
are on crumb tray
Unplug the oven and wait for it to completely cool. Remove any residual
grease or food particles from the crumb tray
Grease or food particles are on
the heating element
Unplug the oven and wait for it to completely cool. Do not use any
cleaning chemical or excessive force on the heating element, simply
wipe gently with a cloth to remove any stuck on food from the element,
Grease will burn off during use and it is not necessary to attempt to
remove. NEVER attempt to wipe elements while the oven in plugged in
or still on.
Door does not appear
to shut completely
Your oven is currently set to
Standard mode
In standard cooking mode (Sealing Lever in up position and Vent Release
Valve in VENT position) the door is slightly ajar to allow excess air to
vent during cooking from the door. This allows your oven to operate like
standard conventional countertop ovens. In pressure mode, the door is
pulled in when the Sealing Lever is lowered to complete an airtight
seal. See page 12 for additional information.
I hear air escaping from
the Vent Release Valve on
top of the oven
The Sealing Lever is in pressure
mode (Lowered) which forces
air through the vent valve to
maintain the required pressure in
the oven
As pressure builds up when cooking in Pressure Mode, it is normal to
hear air escaping from the Vent Release Valve on top of the oven. This is
how the oven maintains the correct pressure level.
I see smoke and notice
an odor when I turn my
oven on

Solution
Rotisserie motor does not turn
Function Knob is not in Rotisserie
mode
Turn the Function Knob so that the Rotisserie function is in the 12:00
o'clock position. See page 20 for additional information.
Timer Knob is not engaged
Ensure that the Timer Knob is set to a specific time. For times less than
20 minutes, turn the Timer past the 30 minute mark, and then back to
the desired time.
I cannot open the door
The Sealing Lever is in the SEAL
position
Turn the TIMER KNOB to 0 (unless already off). Rotate the VENT
RELEASE VALVE to the VENT position and wait until all steam has
released. Raise the SEALING LEVER to the STANDARD mode. Press
the DOOR RELEASE BUTTON to open the door.
WARNING! Never attempt to raise the SEALING LEVER or open the
door until all steam has been vented from the VENT RELEASE VALVE.
Failure to do so could result in a scalding injury.
I hear a metal popping noise
in the oven
The oven is building pressure
inside the cavity
This is a normal occurrence when cooking in pressure mode
The Green ready light
keeps turning on and off.
Your Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven is
able to maintain the set temperature
without the heating elements being on
100% of the time. During the cooking
process the green light cycles on and off
as the heating elements cycle on and off.
Ensure the oven's VENT RELEASE VALVE is in the SEAL position, the
SEALING LEVER is in the SEAL position, and the Temperature Knob is
set per chart or recipe.
The oven is not set to Pressure
Mode
Ensure the oven's VENT RELEASE VALVE is in the SEAL position, the
SEALING LEVER is in the SEAL position, and the Temperature Knob is set
per chart or recipe.
Opening door during cooking
process
Do not open the door excessively during the cooking process. Use the
time in the cooking chart or recipe and check the temperature once the
shortest cooking time has expired
Timer Expired
The Pressure Oven will shut off automatically once the timer has expired.
Ensure that the proper amount of time was set on the timer.
Size, weight, moisture content and initial
temperature of the food to be cooked can
alter the final cooking times of almost all
foods.
The times and charts throughout the manual are general guidelines only;
adjust cooking times to desired doneness. Meats and poultry should be
cooked to final safe temperature as indicated by an instant read
thermometer
The Vent Release Valve is not flush
with the oven housing
Turn the Timer knob to the Off position and unplug the oven. Using a
hand towel or oven mitt grasp the Vent Release Valve tab and apply
downward pressure while twisting left and right. Contact customer
service for replacement part.
CAUTION: Oven surfaces are hot, do not attempt to vent the oven
without adequate protection for your hand.
My cooking times differ
from the cooking times in
the charts or recipes
The Vent Release Valve

Care & Cleaning
Ensure that your oven is unplugged and all parts are cool prior to
cleaning.
Do not clean with metal scouring pads. Pieces can break off the pad and
touch electrical parts, creating a risk of electric shock.
To protect against electric shock, do not immerse cord, plug, or housing
of the oven in water or other liquids.
Wash the following parts in warm soapy water or in the dishwasher:
• Baking/Drip Pan
• Baking/Broil Rack
• Rotisserie Rod with tines and screws (fully assemble if placed in
dishwasher)
• Roasting Pan
• Crumb Tray
• Rotisserie Removal Tool
• Rack Removal Tool
The interior of your oven can be cleaned with a damp soapy cloth. For
stubborn stains, you can apply some oven cleaner to a damp sponge or
cloth. Do not attempt to move heating elements during cleaning. The
sealing gasket should always be inspected for damage such as tears, or if
dislodged. Use gentle pressure to wipe sealing gasket as needed.
