Cooking Methods
Microwave Cooking
Microwave cooking uses high frequency energy waves to heat the food.
When cooking, microwave energy causes food molecules to move rapidly.
This rapid movement between the food molecules creates heat, which cooks
the food. Microwaves cook moist food and foods of varying fat content more
quickly.
Convection Cooking
Convection cooking utilizes both a convection element and fan to evenly
distribute heated air throughout the oven cavity. By circulating air, no hot or
cold spots occur, creating a consistent temperature envelope around the
food. These consistent temperatures cook food evenly and reduces cooking
time.
Combination Cooking
The combination mode uses both the speed of microwave energy and
browning of convection cooking to yield fast, high quality food.
•
Microwave cooking uses high frequency energy waves to heat the food.
When cooking, microwave energy causes food molecules to move
rapidly. This rapid movement between the food molecules creates heat,
which cooks the food.
•
Convection cooking uses the selected oven temperature to bake and
brown foods. The circulating air surrounds food in an envelope of evenly
heated air.

Cookware Suggestions
What Should You Consider in Cookware?
Cooking method used determines the cookware that can be used. To simplify choices, use
cookware that is approved for all three cooking methods: microwave, convection and
combination.
Select
Avoid
Heat resistant glass
Non-heat resistant glass
Ceramics or china
Metal trimmed ceramics or china
Pyrex
Metal cookware
Heat resistant Teflon utensils, such as
spatulas.
Metal cooking utensils.
Microwave cookware that is safe to
450•F
Paper products, straw, wicker and wood.
. Handles that are secure.
Cookware with loose or broken handles.
Can I can?
Canning is not allowed in microwave
or combination ovens.
When heating liquids in the microwave
oven, especially for extended periods of
time, superheating can occur. This
condition may result in boil over or
possible eruption when the liquid is
disturbed or a jar is sealed.
Damage incurred by canning, or
attempting to can, using the oven is not
covered under warranty.
What a neat
rack!
Do not use metal utensils or pots in the oven.
A metal rack is provided with the oven
for use in convection oven mode. Metal
racks should not be used in the oven
during microwave or combination
mode. Metal in a microwave energy
environment will cause arcing, which
could result in damage to the oven.
Cooking hints for your oven
Covering
A cover will trap heat and steam, causing food to heat more quickly.
Always use a lid approved for both convection and microwave cooking.
Stirring
Redistributes heat in foods. Always stir from the outside toward the
center of the dish.
Piercing
Pierce the shell, skin or membrane of foods before heating to prevent
bursting.
Turning
Large foods should be turned so that the top and bottom heat evenly.
Arrangement
Do not stack food. Arrange in a single layer on a dish safe for
combination heating. .
Standing
Time
Foods often need to stand from 2 to 15 minutes after being removed
from the oven. This finishes cooking. Normally an internal temperature
will continue to rise approximately 5 to 10°F during standing time.
Spacing
Arrange individual foods, such as potatoes, in a circle and at least
1 inch apart. This helps food heat more evenly.

Should I use a
popcorn
popper?
Popcorn should only be
cooked in a specially designed
microwave popcorn popper or in the
commercially prepared microwave-safe
popcorn bag it was sold in. Do not use a
popper designed to focus or concentrate
energy or heat. Popcorn should also be
popped only while oven is in
microwave mode. If convection heat is
present, popcorn may scorch, burn or
catch fire.
Microwave Cooking
Do not use the
convection rack in
any microwave
cooking cycles.
Recall
This feature enables
you to repeat the

Care and Cleaning
Clean oven frequently to maximize oven life, performance, and efficiency. A dirty oven cooks inefficiently
because moisture, spills, and grease absorb convection and microwave energy.
! WARNING
To avoid electrical shock which
can cause severe personal
injury or death, unplug power
cord or open circuit breaker to
oven before cleaning oven.
! CAUTION
To prevent burns, handle utensils, racks, and door with
care. Allow oven, utensils, racks to cool before cleaning.
Oven, utensils, and racks, become hot during operation.
Recommended Cleaning Schedule
• Schedule daily cleaning and clean after use.
• Clean interior, exterior, and door according to instructions.
• Clean spills immediately.
• Remove oven racks, and clean according to instructions.
• Wipe dry after cleaning.
Cleaning Oven Exterior
Clean the door and other exterior surfaces with a clean cloth, sponge or nylon
pad using a mild detergent and warm water solution. Wring cloth well to
remove excess water before wiping oven.
•
•
Oven Turntable
The turntable and rotating ring are
removable. They should be handwashed in warm (not hot) water and
a mild detergent. Dry thoroughly with
a soft cloth. DO NOT use cleaning
powders, abrasives, steel wool, or
other rough pads. DO NOT put in an
automatic dishwasher.
•
Do not use harsh or abrasive cleaners or cleaners containing ammonia.
Do not use water pressure type cleaning systems.
•
Cleaning Oven Cavity
Wipe the oven inside with a soft cloth and a mild detergent solution. Rinse and •
wipe dry. Never use cleaning powders, abrasives or other rough pads.
Excessive oil splatters on the inside top will be difficult to remove if left to sit.
Wipe splatters with a wet paper towel as soon as they occur.
NOTE: A plastic putty knife or equivalent may be used to remove baked on
debris.
•
•
•
Wear protective rubber gloves when cleaning oven.
Use only a plastic putty knife, nylon scouring pad or equivalent, to aid in
removing soil or build-up from the oven interior.
Do not use knife, metal utensil, or steel wool pad to remove baked on
material. This will damage the teflon coating.
Cleaning Oven Door
For best performance and safety, the inner door panel and the oven front frame

Meat Basics
While cooking has always been a talent, it is now becoming a science, also. Amana provides this information as a
guide to aid in preparation. For specific questions regarding meat preparation, handling, or storage contact
USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) Meat & Poultry Hotline at (800) 535-4555.
Handling Hints
Cooking Tips
Storage Safety
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
When shopping, put meat in its
own separate plastic sack to
keep drips off other foods.
Defrost frozen meats in
refrigerator, not at room
temperature.
Keep meat cool and covered
until it is time to cook.
Wash hands with warm soapy
water before and after handling
meat or raw egg.
Thoroughly wash any surface or
utensil raw meat or egg touched.
Do not put cooked meat on the
same plate that held raw meat.
Tenderizing
Braising is only one way to tenderize
less tender cuts. Before cooking, you
may pound, cube, marinate, or use
commercially prepared meat
tenderizers. You may then use a dry
method to cook the meat.
•
•
•
•
Marinades are acidic liquids such
as wine, citrus, or vinegar.
Marinades soften meat fibers but
only penetrate about one-fourth of
an inch into the interior of the
meat. Do not marinate meat for
longer than 24 hours.
Pounding with a heavy meat mallet
breaks down the connective tissue
to tenderize meat.
Cubing breaks down the structure
more than pounding. Cubing is
done at the meat counter.
Commercial tenderizers are
primarily enzymes that work on the
outer fourth inch on a meat cut.
Make sure to follow the
manufacturer’s directions.
•
•
•
•
Marinate meat in the
refrigerator. Throw out excess
marinade that came into contact
with meat.
Use an oven-proof meat
thermometer.
Cook meat to internal
temperature recommended by
USDA.
When reheating foods, heat to
an internal temperature of at
least 165 °F.
While cooking meats, turn over
at least once.
•
•
•
•
Once carved, refrigerate unused
portion immediately.
Keep hot foods hot and cold
foods cold when serving meals.
Separate cooked foods into
small portions for fast cooling.
Do not store cooked ground
meats or meals containing
ground meats for longer than
3 to 4 days in the refrigerator.
Do not allow cooked or
uncooked meat juices to come
into contact with ready-to-eat
foods such as fruits or
vegetables.
Using a Meat Thermometer
When using a meat thermometer, remember to insert it at a slight angle, in
the thickest part of the meat, away from fat and bone. The meat should be
removed when 5 °F below the desired final temperature. While the meat sits
before carving, it will continue to cook internally, raising the last 5 °F by itself.
A meat thermometer can
•
•
Take the guesswork out of cooking to a desired ‘doneness’.
Help reduce the risk of foodborne illness.
Oven-safe Thermometer
• Inserted before the meat is placed in the oven, this thermometer stays
with the meat while it cooks.
• The internal temperature will rise slowly as the meat cooks.
• DO NOT use a metal thermometer in the oven in COMBINATION mode or
MICROWAVE mode.
Instant-read Thermometer
• Not oven safe, these thermometers are placed in the meat when it is
removed from the oven.
• While times may vary, an accurate temperature is normally displayed
within one to two minutes.
• When using an instant-read, remember to clean the thermometer stem
with warm, soapy water between readings.

Baking Guidelines
Remember when baking with a new oven temperatures vary from oven to oven. Store-bought thermometers are
generally not accurate and cannot be used to evaluate oven temperatures. Ingredients should be at ambient
temperature prior to baking.
Hints for Cookies,
•
•
Shiny, flat cookie sheets should
be used. Avoid cookie pans with
high sides—this will cause
uneven browning on the top.
Cookie sheet should not touch
the sides of the oven or door.
Cakes,
•
•
Determine pan size from recipe
directions. Shiny pans work best
for cakes.
Cake baked in too large a pan
will be thin and dry. Too small a
pan results in undercooked or
unevenly cooked cake and batter
may spill.
Pies
•
•
Pies should be baked in dark or
dull pans to increase browning.
Frozen pies should be heated on
an aluminum cookie sheet.
BAKEWARE GUIDELINES

Preheating
In most cases, you should preheat the oven before baking. For delicate baking
(such as puff pastries or souffles), preheat approximately 15–20 minutes
before placing food inside oven or wait 10 minutes after oven signal beeps
before placing food in oven. The extra time creates a more stable oven
temperature.

Common Baking Problems
Adjusting to a new oven can be hard, especially making a change to a convection oven. If you begin to notice
consistent problems refer to the chart below for possible solutions. If baking results are still poor, contact
Amana Consumer Affairs at (800) 843-0304.
Test your cakes for doneness
Problem
Cause
Lopsided cakes
(bake unevenly)
Pans touching each other or oven walls.
Batter spread unevenly in pan.
Incorrect use of aluminum foil.
Oven is not level.
While they are still in the oven. Because
of variances across individual ovens, it
is best to test for the proper consistency
rather than solely relying on time and
visual appearance as an indicator.
Cakes, cookies, biscuits
too brown on bottom or top
Oven not preheated.
Pans touching each other or oven walls.
Using glass, darkened, warped or dull
finish metal pans.
Rack position too high or low.
Incorrect use of aluminum foil.
Oven temperature too high.
It may not be the oven
Pies don’t brown
Incorrect rack position.
Using shiny metal pans.
Temperature set too low.
Cakes not done in center
Temperature too high.
Pan too small.
Baking time too short.
Pan not centered in oven.
Cakes fall
Too much shortening or sugar.
Too much or too little liquid.
Temperature too low.
Old or too little baking powder.
Pan too small.
Oven door opened frequently (peeking).
Insufficient baking.
Excessive shrinkage
Too little leavening.
Mixing batter too long.
Pan too large.
Oven temperature too high.
Baking time too long.
Cakes high in middle
or cracked
Temperature set too high.
Overmixing.
Too much flour.
Pans touching each other or oven walls.
21
Cake problems may be in the mixing of
the batter. Overbeating can cause cake
structure to break down and excessive
shrinkage of the cake. Underbeating
can result in lumpy cakes that may not
be cooked thoroughly. All ingredients
should be at room temperature—not
out of the refrigerator. Make sure to
follow the recipes directions for how
long the batter should be mixed and
recommended times.
Stuck cake?
Allow cake to cool in cake pan on a
rack for 10 minutes before removing.
Larger cakes (over 14 inches in
diameter) may take 15 minutes. If the
cake has cooled too long, reheat in the
oven at 250°F for a few minutes.
Better with butter
Make sure to follow recipe directions
and use butter or margarine when it is
listed. Using a low fat substitute will
cause a recipe to fail.
