Close supervision is necessary when any
appliance is used by or near children.
To protect against electric shock, do not
immerse cord, plug or any parts of the oven
in water or any other liquids.
Do not let cord hang over edge of table or
counter, or touch hot surfaces.
Do not operate appliance with damaged
cord or plug or after the appliance
malfunctions or has been damaged in any
manner. Return appliance to the nearest
EURO-PRO Operating LLC for
examination, repair or adjustment.
The use of accessory attachments not
recommended by the appliance
manufacturer may cause hazard or injury.
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
oven to allow for adequate air circulation.
Unplug from outlet when not in use and
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 using cooking or baking containers
constructed of anything other than metal
or ovenproof glass.

around the edges. Avoid scratching door
surface or nicking edges.
25. Do not use outdoors.
26. Do not use appliance for other than
intended 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

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 (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.

• Time Control - When you turn the control to the left, (counter-clockwise),
the oven will “STAY ON” until it is manually shut “OFF”. To activate the timer
segment of the control, turn to the right (clockwise) to toast or use as a timer.
This function also has a bell that rings at the end of the programmed time.

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.

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 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.
1. Use parchment paper on cookie sheets so cookies will not stick.
2. 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.
Baking Guide
Follow the package or recipe instructions for baking times and temperature.
