WOK COOKING
We recommend that you use only a flat-bottomed wok.
Flat-bottomed woks are available at your local retail
store.
Do not use woks which have support rings. Use ofthese
types of woks, with or without the ring In place, can be
dangerous. Placing the ring over the burner grate may
damage t he burner grate and burner head. Also, placing
the ring over the burner grate may cause the burner to
work improperly resulting In carbon monoxide levels
above allowable current standards. This could be dangerous to your health. See the Safety Section of this
manual. Do not try to use such woks without the ring.
You could be seriously burned if the wok tipped over.

OVEN
COOKING
Be sure the underside of the pan Is shiny, too.
Darkened undersides will absorb the heat and may
cause over browning on the bottom of your food.
When cooking a fond for the first time In your new
oven, use time given on recipes as a guide.
Your new oven has been set correctly at the factory
and Is more apt to be accurate then the oven It
replaced.
After you have used your oven for awhile, If you feel
your oven should be hotter or cooler, you can adjust
It yourself. See TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENTS In
this manual.
Always follow recipe carefully.
Measure Ingredients properly.
Use proper pan placement.
Oven temperatures should be reduced 25 degrees
below recommended temperatures If exterior of pan
is predarkened, darkened by age or oven proof
glass.
Place pans on the oven racks with 1" to I 1/2" of air
space on all sides of each pan. Avoid overcrowding
the oven.
Pans too close to each other, to oven walls or to the
oven bottom, block the free movement of air. Improper air movement causes uneven browning and
cooking.
There may be some odor when the oven is first used.
This Is caused by the heating of new parts and
Insulation.
Do not cover an entire oven rack with foil. The foil
can block normal heat flow and cause poor baking
results. Do not place any foil directly on the oven
bottom. Foil used on the oven bottom may damage
the oven surface; therefore, It should not be used.
2 cake layers
Cookies should be baked on flat cookie sheets
without sides to allow the air to circulate properly.
When recipes require preheeUng, have food nearby
before you open the oven door. If the oven door Is
allowed to remain open for more than a brief _lme,
the preheat temperature will be lost.
4 cake layer s
OVEN
VENT
When the oven is on, heated air moves through a vent In
or below the backguard behind the cooktop. On the
cooktop, this hot air may make pot handles hot or melt
plastic Items left too near the vent.
When baking several Items stagger pans so that no
pan Is directly above another.
Let the oven preheat thoroughly before cooking
baked products. Allow 10 minutes for preheating.
The vent Is necessary for proper air circulation In the
oven and good baking results. Do not block this
vent. Doing so my cause cooking failure, fire or
damage to the range.
Opening the door too often to check food during
baking will allow heat loss and may cause poor
baking results.
MOISTURE
Cakes, cookies, muffins, and quick breads should
be baked In shiny pans -- to reflect the heat -because they should have a light golden crust.
Yeast breads and pie crusts should be baked In
glass or dull (non-shiny) pans --to absorb the heat
-- because they should have a brown, crisp crust.
•As your oven heats up,the temperature change of the air
In t he oven may causewater droplatsto form on the door
or door glass. To prevent this, open the oven door for
the first minute of oven heat up to let the moist air out.

"DO-IT-YOURSELF"
TEMPERATURE
ADJUSTMENTS
You may feel that your new oven cooks dlfferenUy than
the oven It replaced. We recommend that you use your
new oven a few weeks to become more familiar with It,
following the times given In your reclpee as a guide.
4. TO make your oven temperature HOTTER, hold the
knob by the handle and turn the knob skirt Sothe tap
screw moves toward the word hotter. As you turn the
skirt you will hear clicks and feel notches or teeth.
Each click or notch will adjust the temperature 15°F
hotter.
If you think your new oven Is too hot (burning foods) or
not hot enough (foods are under-cooked) you can adjust
the temperature yourself. The appearance and texture
of foods are better Indicators of oven accuracy than
leexpenslve oven thermometers, such as those found In
the grocery stores, to check the temperature setting ot
your new oven. These thermometers can vary by 2040°F. In addition, the oven door must be opened to read
these thermometers. Opening the door will change the
temperature of the oven.
TOP SCREWMOVES
TOWARD HO'FfER
To decide how much to change the temperature, set the
oven temperature 25°F lower (If foods are burning) than
the temperature In your recipe, then bake. The result of
this "test" should give you an Idea of how much the
temperature should be changed.
TO MAKE THE TEMPERATURE
5. To make your oven temperature COOLER, hold the
knob by the handle and turn the knob skirt So that the
top screw moves toward the word cooler. As you
turn the skirt you will hear clicks and feel notches or
teeth. Each click or notch will adjust the temperature
15°F cooler.
ADJUSTMENT:
1, Make sure the oven control knob Is In the OFF
position, Remove the knob by pulling It straight off.
TOP SCREW MOVES

2, Look at the back of the knob. The pointer In the
center Indicates the original temperature setting.

control knob to your range.
