GETTING TO KNOW YOUR CONVECTION
TOASTER OVEN
Warning: Be sure to unplug the oven and allow it to
cool before cleaning.
Your oven features a continuous clean coating that automatically cleans
itself during normal operation. Any spattering that occurs while cooking
and comes into contact with the continuous coating is oxidized while the
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
EXTERIOR FINISH.
DO NOT USE AN ABRASIVE CLEANER OR STEEL WOOL SCOURING

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.
Convection Cooking
Convection cooking combines hot air movement by means of a fan with the
regular features (rotisserie, 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° (Keep
Warm) to 450° F for baking, broiling, toasting or grilling.

Broiling 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 wire rack with the crumb tray beneath it (see
illustration) to allow the circulation of air.
Operation
• Set Temperature Control to 450°F.
• Turn Function Control to Broil/Convection.
• Preheat the oven.
• Place the Wire Rack on the Crumb Tray.
• Place the food on the Wire 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.

Baking with Convection
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.
Note: Position the wire rack in the lowest Support Guide.
Operation
• Place the wire rack in the lowest or middle Rack Support Guide
depending on the height of the pan or according to the recipe.
• Place pan with item(s) to be baked on the wire rack.
• Turn the Function Control to Bake/Convection.
• Turn the Time Control to position “Stay On”.
• When baking is complete, turn the Time Control to “OFF”.
Positioning of the Wire Rack
Cookies - Use bottom and middle Support Guides.
Layer Cakes - Use bottom Support Guide only (bake one at a time).
Pies - Use bottom Support Guide.
Baking Cookies
For baking cookies, we suggest adjusting baking temperature and using a
cookie sheet placed on the wire rack. Also, using parchment paper on a
cookie sheet might prove helpful when baking certain types of cookies.
1.
2.
Use parchment paper on cookie sheet 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 remembering not to preheat. Check the baked goods
a few minutes before the shortest recommended baking time.
Baking Guide
Follow the package or recipe instructions for baking times and temperature.
Note: All broiling times are based on meats at refrigerator
temperature. Frozen meats may take considerably longer.
Therefore, use of a meat thermometer is highly
recommended.
