Recipe Conversions
BAKE
When using the BAKE mode to cook baked goods such as cakes, brownies,
cookies, pizzas, pies, rolls, etc., reduce the oven temperature 25ºF from the
recipe to prevent over browning on the top of baked goods.
For example: A recipe states to bake brownies for 25-30 minutes at 400°F.
FAST BAKE
When using the FAST BAKE mode reduce the recipe cook time by 25%
For example: A recipe states to cook a roast for 60 minutes at 400°F.
60 minutes x 0.25 = 15 minutes saved.
So the new cook time in FAST BAKE mode will be:
60 minutes - 15 minutes = 45 minutes.
400°F - 25°F = 375°F
So the new bake temperature in BAKE mode will be: 375°F.

Cookware Tips
BAKE
Metal Pans are recommended for all types of baked products,
but especially where browning is important.
Dark or dull finish metal pans are best for breads and pies because
they absorb heat and produce crisper crust.
Shiny aluminum pans are better for cakes, cookies or muffins because they
reflect heat and help produce a light tender crust.
Glass or Glass-Ceramic casserole or baking dishes are best suited for egg and
cheese recipes due to the cleanability of the glass.
FAST BAKE
Glass or Glass-Ceramic baking containers are recommended. Be sure not to
use items with metal trim as they may cause arcing (sparking) with oven wall or
oven shelf. This can damage the cookware, the shelf or the oven.

*Use only microwave cookware that is safe to 450°F.
Heat-Resistant Plastic microwave cookware (safe to 450°F.) may be used,
but it is not recommended for foods requiring all-around browning, because
plastic is a poor conductor of heat.
Cookware and Food Placement Suggestions
■ In Microwave mode the food should always be cooked on the glass turntable
tray. Microwave mode should not be used with the metal shelf in the oven.
■ For best cooking performance in Bake or Fast Bake modes, always place the
shelf in the “low” position.
■ The metal shelf should always be used when cooking in Bake or Fast Bake
modes so that heated air will brown the bottom of the food. The glass turntable
can be left in place in Bake and Fast Bake modes.
■ Placing the shelf in the “high” position will cause the top of the food to
brown/cook much faster than the interior and bottom of the food. See the
illustration below for correct shelf position.
■ For best cooking performance in Bake or Fast Bake modes, leave at least a
1 inch gap between the cooking dish and the sides of the oven.
