Setting Control 7 BEFORE SETTING WARMER DRAWER CONTROL Arranging Warmer Drawer Rack Positions Set the warmer drawer rack in the vertical position as shown below. The rack can be used in 2 ways: • In the upright position to allow low profile food items to be placed both under and on top of the rack (for example, rolls or biscuits on top of the rack and a casserole dish under). • In the downward position to allow you to place light weight food items and empty dishware (for example, rolls or pastries and dinner plates). Downward Position Upright Position SETTING WARMER DRAWER CONTROL Use the warmer drawer to keep hot foods hot such as: vegetables, gravies, meats, casseroles, biscuits and rolls, pastries and heated dinner plates. The warmer drawer is equipped with a catch which may require extra force when opening and closing the drawer. To Operate the Warmer Drawer The purpose of the warmer drawer is to keep hot cooked foods at serving temperature. Always start with hot food. It is not recommended to heat cold food in the warmer drawer. All food placed in the warmer drawer should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil to maintain moisture and softness. Do not cover crisp foods. Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto the drawer and be very difficult to clean. Use only dishware, utensils and cookware recommended for oven use in the warmer drawer. CA UTION CAUTION Always use potholders or oven mitts when removing food from the warmer drawer as cookware and plates will be hot. Indicator Light The indicator light is located below the thermostat control knob. It turns on when the control is set, and stays on until the control is turned off. Make sure indicator light is off when removing food from drawer. 8 Setting Control SETTING WARMER DRAWER CONTROL To Set the Thermostat Control The thermostat control knob is used to select the temperature of the warmer drawer.

The control can be set to the three settings, or anywhere between. 1. To set the thermostat, push in and turn the knob to the desired setting. 2. For best results, preheat the drawer before adding food. An empty drawer will reach the LO setting in about 8 minutes, the MED setting in about 10 minutes, and the HI setting in about 12 minutes. 3. When done, turn the thermostat control to OFF. Temperature Selection The knob shown is typical only. Refer to the chart in the side column for recommended settings. If a particular food is not listed, start with the medium setting. If more crispness is desired, remove the lid or aluminum foil.
