When canning for long periods, alternate the use of surface
burners between batches. This allows time for the most recently
used areas to cool.
■ Center the canner on the grate.
■
Do not place canner on 2 surface burners at the same time.
■
For more information, contact your local agricultural
department. Companies that manufacture home canning
products can also offer assistance.
Cookware
IMPORTANT: Do not leave empty cookware on a hot surface
cooking area, element or surface burner.
Ideal cookware should have a flat bottom, straight sides and a
well-fitting lid, and the material should be of medium-to-heavy
thickness.
Rough finishes may scratch the cooktop or grates. Aluminum and
copper may be used as a core or base in cookware. However,
when used as a base they can leave permanent marks on the
cooktop or grates.
Cookware material is a factor in how quickly and evenly heat is
transferred, which affects cooking results. A nonstick finish has
the same characteristics as its base material. For example,
aluminum cookware with a nonstick finish will take on the
properties of aluminum.
Cookware with nonstick surfaces should not be used under the
broiler.
Use the following chart as a guide for cookware material
characteristics.

3. Press START or START/ENTER.
OVEN USE
Odors and smoke are normal when the oven is used the first few
times, or when it is heavily soiled.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to
the fumes given off. Exposure to the fumes may result in death to
certain birds. Always move birds to another closed and wellventilated room.
Aluminum Foil
Split Oven Rack
IMPORTANT: Do not line the oven bottom with any type of foil,
liners or cookware because permanent damage will occur to the
oven bottom finish.
■ On those models with bottom vents, do not block or cover
the oven bottom vents.
(on some models)
■
Do not cover entire rack with foil because air must be able to
move freely for best cooking results.
■
To catch spills, place foil on rack below dish. Make sure foil is
at least ¹⁄₂" (1.3 cm) larger than the dish and that it is turned
up at the edges.
Split-Rack with Removable Insert
The split-rack with removable insert is a space maximizer. When
the two are attached, they make a full rack. The insert can also be
removed to provide room for large items such as a turkey and

Baking and Roasting
ACCUBAKE® DUO SYSTEM® Temperature Management
(on some models)
The ACCUBAKE® DUO SYSTEM® temperature management
technology uses two sensors to maintain even temperatures.
The two temperature sensors independently control the bake and
broil burners for optimal cooking results. The bake and broil cycle
on and off in intervals. This feature is automatically activated
when the oven is in use.
Before baking and roasting, position racks according to the
“Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section. When roasting, it is
not necessary to wait for the oven preheat conditioning time to
end before putting food in unless recommended in the recipe.
To Bake or Roast:
Uneven browning
May need to reduce baking
temperatures 25°F (15°C).
1. Press BAKE.
2. Press TEMP or TEMP/TIME “up” or “down” arrow pad to set
a temperature other than 350°F (175°C) in 5°F (3°C) amounts.
The bake range can be set between 170°F and 500°F (75°C
and 260°C).
When the oven temperature is greater than 170°F (77°C), no
preheat conditioning time will be shown in the display. The
preheat conditioning time will not change if the temperature is
reset before the countdown time ends.
3. Press START or START/ENTER. The temperature can be
changed after this step. The start pad does not need to be
pressed again.
If baking and roasting while the minute timer is counting
down, the set temperature can be seen for 5 seconds by
pressing BAKE.
4. Press CANCEL or OFF/CANCEL when finished.
Meat Thermometer
Preheating
■
After reading the thermometer once, push it into the meat
½" (1.3 cm) more and read again. If the temperature drops,
cook the meat or poultry longer.
■
Check all meat, poultry and fish in 2 or 3 different places.
After the start pad is pressed, the oven will enter a timed preheat
conditioning. “PrE” (on some models) and the countdown time
will appear on the display. When the preheat conditioning time
ends, a tone will sound and the selected temperature will appear
on the display.
Preheat temperatures are affected by varying factors such as
room temperature and peak energy usage times. It is normal for
the temperature showing on the display and the actual oven
temperature to differ due to the cycling of the burners.
Waiting an additional 10 minutes, after the preheat conditioning
time ends, to put food in the oven is suggested when baking
foods with leavening ingredients, such as yeast, baking powder,
baking soda and eggs.
Oven Vent
Choice Bake® Function
A
The CHOICE BAKE® function minimizes the top heat during oven
cooking. It is ideal for baking pies, casseroles and breads, and for
roasting foods that require longer and slower cook times such as
poultry and roasts.
Similar to the baking and roasting function, the bake and broil
burners cycle on and off at intervals during the CHOICE BAKE®
cycle. However, the cycle duration for the broil burner is much
shorter during the CHOICE BAKE® cycle. This reduces top
browning of foods and gives you more customized control of
your baking results.
On models without a temperature probe, use a meat
thermometer to determine doneness of meat, poultry and fish.
The internal temperature, not appearance, should be used to
determine doneness. A meat thermometer is not supplied with
this appliance.
■ Insert the thermometer into the center of the thickest portion
of the meat or inner thigh or breast of poultry. The tip of the
thermometer should not touch fat, bone or gristle.
A. Oven vent
The oven vent releases hot air and moisture from the oven, and
should not be blocked or covered. Blocking or covering the oven
vent will cause poor air circulation, affecting cooking and
cleaning results. Do not set plastics, paper or other items that
could melt or burn near the oven vent.
10
(on some models)
To Use:
1. Press CHOICE BAKE® function.
Press the TEMP “up” or “down” arrow pad to set a
temperature other than 350°F (175°C) in 10° amounts. The
bake range can be set between 170°F and 500°F (75°C and
260°C).
2. Press START or START/ENTER.
The temperature can be changed after this step. Start does
not need to be pressed again.
3. Press CANCEL or OFF/CANCEL when finished cooking.
Broiling
Broiling uses direct radiant heat to cook food. Changing the
temperature when Custom Broiling allows more precise control
when cooking. The lower the temperature, the slower the
cooking. Thicker cuts and unevenly shaped pieces of meat, fish
and poultry may cook better at lower broiling temperatures.
■ For best results, use a broiler pan and grid (provided on some
models). They are designed to drain juices and help avoid
spatter and smoke. If your model does not have a broiler pan,
one may be ordered. See “Assistance or Service” section to
order. Ask for Part Number 4396923.
■
For proper draining, do not cover the grid with foil. The
bottom of the pan may be lined with aluminum foil for easier
cleaning.
■
Trim excess fat to reduce spattering. Slit the remaining fat on
the edges to avoid curling.
■
Pull out oven rack to stop position before turning or removing
food. Use tongs to turn food to avoid the loss of juices. Very
thin cuts of fish, poultry or meat may not need to be turned.
■
After broiling, remove the pan from the oven when removing
the food. Drippings will bake on the pan if left in the heated
oven, making cleaning more difficult.
Before broiling, position rack according to the Broiling Chart. It is
not necessary to preheat the oven before putting food in unless
recommended in the recipe. Position food on grid in the broiler
pan, then place it in the center of the oven rack. Close the door.

Warming Drawer
(on some models)
WARNING
Food Poisoning Hazard
Do not let food sit for more than one hour before or
after cooking.
Doing so can result in food poisoning or sickness.
The Warming Drawer is ideal for keeping hot cooked foods at
serving temperature. It may also be used for warming breads and
pastries.
Different types of food may be placed in the warming drawer at
the same time. For best results, do not hold foods longer than
1 hour. For smaller quantities or heat-sensitive foods, such as
eggs, do not hold longer than 30 minutes.
Food must be at serving temperature before being placed in the
warming drawer. Breads, pastries, and fruit pies may be heated
from room temperature on the HI setting.
Remove food from plastic bags and place in oven-safe container.
Cover foods with a lid or aluminum foil.
13
Do not cover with plastic wrap.
Empty serving dishes and ovenproof dishes can be heated while
the warming drawer is preheating.
Before using the warming drawer, wash the tray that lines the
bottom of the drawer with soap and water. See “General

Burn Hazard
Failure to follow these instructions can result in burns.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to
the fumes given off during the Self-Cleaning cycle. Exposure to
the fumes may result in death to certain birds. Always move birds
to another closed and well-ventilated room.
Self-clean the oven before it becomes heavily soiled. Heavy soil
results in longer cleaning and more smoke.
Keep the kitchen well-ventilated during the Self-Cleaning cycle to
help get rid of heat, odors, and smoke.
Do not block the oven vent(s) during the Self-Cleaning cycle. Air
must be able to move freely. Depending on your model, see
“Oven Vent” or “Oven Vents” section.
Do not clean, rub, damage or move the oven door gasket. The
door gasket is essential for a good seal.
Prepare Oven:
■
Remove the broiler pan, grid, cookware and bakeware and,
on some models, the temperature probe from the oven.
■
Remove any foil from the oven because it may burn or melt,
damaging the oven.
■
Remove oven racks to keep them shiny and easy to slide.
See “General Cleaning” section for more information.
■
Hand clean inside door edge and the 1½" (3.8 cm) area
around the inside oven cavity frame, being certain not to
move or bend the gasket. This area does not get hot enough
during self-cleaning to remove soil. Do not let water, cleaner,
etc. enter slots on door frame. Use a damp cloth to clean this
area.
■
Wipe out any loose soil to reduce smoke and avoid damage.
At high temperatures, foods react with porcelain. Staining,
etching, pitting or faint white spots can result. This will not
affect cooking performance.
Prepare Cooktop and Storage Drawer:
■
Remove plastic items from the cooktop because they may
melt.
■
Remove all items from the storage drawer.
How the Cycle Works
To Delay Start Self-Clean (on some models):

oven cools, “End” will appear on the lower oven display and
“LOCKED” will disappear.
6. Press any pad or open the oven door to clear the oven
display.
To Stop Self-Clean anytime:
IMPORTANT: The heating and cooling of porcelain on steel in the
oven may result in discoloring, loss of gloss, hairline cracks and
popping sounds.
The Self-Cleaning cycle uses very high temperatures, burning soil
to a powdery ash.
The oven is preset for a 3 hour 30 minute clean cycle, but the
time can be changed. Suggested clean times are 2 hours
30 minutes for light soil and between 3 hours 30 minutes and
4 hours 30 minutes for average to heavy soil.
Once the oven has completely cooled, remove ash with a damp
cloth. Do not wipe down any of the inside surfaces until the oven
has completely cooled down. Applying a cool damp cloth to the
inner door glass before it has completely cooled could result in
the glass breaking.
The oven light will not work during the Self-Cleaning cycle.
Press CANCEL or OFF. If the oven temperature is too high, “cln,”
“TIMED,” “ON,” “cool,” and “LOCKED” will appear on the display
(on some models), and the door will remain locked. It will not
unlock until the oven cools.
