I. INSTRUCTION FOR THE INSTALLER
Congratulations! You have just purchased a new Cadco LineChefTM Digital Convection Oven. Let’s go over
some of the basics before you start using your new oven.
1. DATA PLATE
2. CERTIFICATION
2.1 The “CSA” mark on our data labels and on our user manual refers to the following listings:
Certifications are listed under UNOX S.p.A., CSA file #202281, including XAF series oven models
Class Number: 2831-03 DESCRIPTION: HEATERS-Cooking and Liquid - Stationary Type
Class Number: 2831-83 DESCRIPTION: HEATERS-Cooking and Liquid-Stationary TypeCertified to U.S. Standards
TO THE REQUIREMENTS OF UL 197 (8th edition)
2.2 The “NSF” mark refers to listing including XAF series oven models under UNOX SPA for NSF/ANSI
STANDARD 4: Commercial Cooking, Rethermalization and Powered Hot Food Holding and Transport
Equipment
3. INSTALLATION - PRELIMINARY OPERATIONS
All electrical connections and installation operations must be done by qualified personnel, and comply
with all existing codes.
3.1 CHECK THE LOCATION OF INSTALLATION
Verify the overall measurements and the exact position of the electrical and water connections (where
applicable) before installing the oven. Refer to the illustrations in
the separate “technical data” document for your model.
3.2 FEET ASSEMBLY
You will find the feet packed inside your oven’s cooking cavity.
The feet must be used when your oven is in operation. Never use
your oven without its feet properly installed. Assemble the feet as
shown. (Full size models now come with tall feet that screw into
place; all other models come with shorter feet that pop into place.)
3.3 POSITIONING
Place your oven so the back and sides can be easily reached. This will make the electrical connections
and any servicing points easily accessible. Your oven is not designed for built-in applications or for side
by side positioning. Cadco suggests you leave a minimum distance of 4” between the back of the oven
and the wall to allow for the escape of moisture. The oven must be placed upon a support, a stand, or on
top of a counter made of non-combustible material. Never install the oven directly on the floor. If the
oven is placed near walls, dividers, kitchen cabinets, decorated edges or drapes, they must be made of
non combustible material.
3.4 REMOVE THE PROTECTIVE FILM
Carefully remove all the protective film from the external walls of your oven. Be sure to remove any
residual glue left on the outside of the oven with an appropriate solvent.
3
4. INSTALLATION
4.1 ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
• Connection to the electrical power source must be done according to all state and local codes. Before
connecting your oven, make sure that the voltage and the amps comply with those stated on the data plate
of your oven. Avoid using patch cords and multiple jacks.
• The appliance must be placed so that the connection plug to the outlet can be easily reached.
When the appliance is in operation, the power supply voltage must not diverge from the value of the
nominal voltage, written on the technical data plate, by more than + or – 10%.
• Ovens are equipped with cordset and NEMA plug (single phase; 120V or 208-240V, depending on oven
model.) It is sufficient to insert the plug in the proper outlet (the outlet must be suitable for the plug
assembled on the oven.)
4.2 WATER CONNECTION (available on all digital models EXCEPT XAF-111 & XAF-130, per below)
• CONNECTION TO THE WATER NET: Full Size digital oven models (XAF-188 & XAF-195)
come with an electrovalve for direct water connection.
♦ A mechanical filter must be placed between the water system and the water connection of the oven.
♦ Before connecting the water pipe to the oven, please allow a suitable amount of water flow, in order to
clean the duct from any residue.
♦ The water used in the oven must have a nominal pressure value between 0.5 and 2 bars.
♦ The water must have a hardness between 0.5° and 5°F (to avoid formation of lime deposits inside the
electric valve and inside the cavity).
♦ Cadco suggests you use a decalcification filter in order to maintain fan balance.
• AUXILIARY WATER PUMP: Half Size digital ovens with Dynamic control panels (XAF-115 &
XAF-135) come with an EL080 Auxiliary Water Pump included, for manually pumping water from a
bucket or other container. WARNING: Before using the water pump, always make sure that there is
water in the tank. Damage to the pump can occur if it is operated without water in the tank and it will
void your warranty. If the pump makes “groaning” sounds, it is probably due to lack of water in the tank
or the pump is simply running an air bubble through the system.
• Hot air and steam will exit the oven from the back exhaust port. During most cooking cycles, you will
have hot and humid exhaust coming out from this exhaust port (temperature and humidity of this exhaust
depend on the cooking parameters being used.) The steam that comes out of the exhaust port can also be
vented outside if desired.
II. INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE USER
Never allow grease splatters or spills to collect on the inside walls, floor, or ceiling of your oven. A
simple cleaning with soap and water is usually enough to keep your oven spotless and in “like new”
condition for years. Your oven should never be cleaned with a water hose or anything more powerful
than a spritz bottle. For tougher cleaning and built up grease, we suggest using Foam Plus® from
Discovery Products Corporation (Tel. 877.822.8500.)
1. INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE OPERATOR
You will find important information about maintaining and operating your new oven in this manual.
Please read the manual and become familiar with your new oven before you begin to operate it. Keep the
manual in a safe place and make sure everyone reads it before operating the oven. Please use only Cadco
authorized service centers and always require quality UNOX-OEM parts. Failure to comply with these
standards can compromise safety and will void your warranty.
2. NOTES FOR USE
• Your Cadco oven was designed to cook food and must be used only for that specific purpose. Any other
use may void your warranty. The usable operating temperature range is approx. 140°F to 500°F. It is
suggested that you allow about 2-3” between trays for proper air circulation during the cooking process.
4
•
Use your Cadco oven for:
♦ Baking all types of bread and pastry, both fresh and frozen.
♦ Cooking any meat, fish, or fowl.
♦ Rethermalizing any cooled or frozen cooked foods.
♦ Cooking (not steaming) any kinds of vegetables.
Please avoid salting your food products while they are inside the cooking cavity. Salt is very corrosive
and may, over time, damage the interior of your oven.

TM
♦ On each LineChef
Digital Convection Oven, there is a switch that stops the cook cycle when you
open the door.
♦ When you open the door, the cooking cycle (in both the manual and the programmed mode) goes into
pause mode, though no cooking values are lost.
♦ When you close the door, the cooking cycle restarts from where it was interrupted.
•
Convection Fans
Every 2 minutes, the fan(s) stop and reverse direction to assure even baking.
5. CLEANING THE OVEN
• WARNING: Before starting any maintenance or cleaning operation, it is necessary to disconnect
the electrical power supply and wait for your oven to cool down.
5.1 BEFORE USING THE OVEN
♦ Clean the metal parts with hot soapy water and rinse thoroughly.
♦ With the cooking cavity empty, heat the oven for about 30 minutes at a temperature of 350°F to “burn
it in”.
♦ Never wash the cooking chamber with acids, abrasives, or aggressive detergents.
5.2 CLEANING THE COOKING CAVITY
♦ Make sure to wipe up any and all spills as they occur.
♦ At the end of the day (or as needed), clean the cavity using only proper products.
♦ Never clean the stainless steel with acids, caustic detergents, abrasives or any products containing
chlorine.
5.3 CLEANING THE OUTSIDE OF YOUR OVEN
♦ Wipe up spills, as they occur, with a damp cloth.
♦ Never use a spray of water in to clean the outside of your oven. This may damage the electrical
components and void your warranty.
6. TURNING OFF IN CASE OF BREAKDOWN
If you encounter any kind of problem while your oven is in operation, or if you notice anything out of the
ordinary, follow these steps:
♦ Unplug your oven immediately.
♦ Consult Cadco, Ltd. at 877-603-7393 (Toll-Free)
Failure to do so may result in a hazardous condition and void your warranty.
III. COOKING PRINCIPLES
1. COOKING MODES
• CONVECTION COOKING
♦ Food products bake in hot, moving air. This moving air removes the cool air barrier between the cool
food being cooked, and the heat of the oven chamber. It also helps your food products to cook evenly
10
and quickly. Foods cook faster with convection.
•
CONVECTION & HUMIDITY (Humidity models)
♦ Adding measured amounts of humidity while baking helps many products retain moisture. In some
cases, such as with Pate Choux, the product will gain in volume.
♦ Moisture also makes the heat seem hotter (similar to a humid day) and products may cook a little faster.
2. COOKING VARIABLES
• TEMPERATURE
♦ The exact setting of your oven temperature assures proper cooking of your food, both inside and outside:
ƒ
Too low – your food cooks too slowly and will dry out.
ƒ
Too High – your foods burns and cooks unevenly.
TM
♦ If you are new to convection cooking, Cadco suggests setting your LineChef
Convection Oven to a
temperature of about 30ºF - 50ºF lower than what you would have set it at in a conventional oven. Let
the food tell you what it needs; if it browns too fast, turn the oven temperature down.
•
TIME
♦ The higher the temperature the quicker your foods will get done.
♦ The quicker foods (especially protein products) cook, the more moisture they tend to lose.
♦ Most bakery products can take high temperatures better than protein products.
•
HUMIDITY
The more humidity in the cooking cavity, the harder it will be for your food products to brown.
•
QUANTITY OF FOOD
♦ One piece of chicken will take less time to cook than 2 or 3 pans of chicken. That’s “Mother Nature”
pure and simple. Convection cooking is fantastic, but it’s NOT magic.
♦ Overloading the oven can result in uneven cooking.
♦ Avoid placing baked goods touching each other on the pan before baking.
3. USE OF WIRE GRIDS AND SHEET PANS
• It is recommended to use wire grids for meat items. This will elevate your food items and allow air to
circulate all around during the cooking process. Place your wire rack in a sheet pan to collect the juice.
This reduces clean-up time also.
• Use sheet pans for bakery items such as pastries, bread and rolls, and cookies.
IV. MAINTENANCE
1. ORDINARY MAINTENANCE
• All maintenance operations must be done only by trained qualified personnel.
• Before starting any maintenance operation, disconnect your oven from the electrical power supply and
wait for it to cool down.
• The parts that need ordinary maintenance can be reached by removing the front control panel and the
back of the oven.
2. SPECIAL MAINTENANCE
• All maintenance operations must be done only by trained qualified personnel.
• Before starting any maintenance operation, disconnect your oven from the electrical power supply and
wait for it to cool down.
2.1 REPLACEMENT OF INTERNAL LAMP
To replace the internal lamp:
• Disconnect your oven from the power supply system and let it cool down.
• Remove the side rails.
• Unscrew the glass cover and replace the lamp with an identical bulb.
11
•
•
Screw the glass cover back on.
Reassemble the side rails.
2.2 REPLACEMENT OF THE FUSE
To replace the fuse:
• Press on the cover of the fuse holder and rotate it of about 20° counterclockwise.
• Remove the cover of the fuse holder.
• Remove the fuse from the cover of the fuse holder.
• Replace the fuse with one with an identical one.
• Reposition the cover of the fuse holder.
• Press the cover and rotate it about 20° clockwise.
2.3 RESET THE SAFETY THERMOSTAT
• This oven is equipped with a manually resettable safety thermostat designed to protect the oven against
overheating. If there is an intervention, it completely deactivates the oven to avoid permanent damage.
• To reset this device, remove the black cap positioned to the bottom of the
back of the oven by unscrewing it counterclockwise, push the reset button
under the cap, and replace the black cap.
• If the safety thermostat shuts your oven off, before turning your oven back on,
be sure to check your entire circuit to verify that the total amps being drawn
by all the appliances, lights, etc. on that circuit do not exceed the amps
available on that circuit.

VI. COOKING GUIDE
The first and most important step will be: Have your new oven hooked up to the proper power and (if
applicable) water source. If there is any doubt about the proper power or the connections, have the oven
installed by a qualified electrician according to your local codes.
Use this cooking guide to help determine which time and temperature works best for your specific food
items. If your specific product isn’t addressed, you will probably find something similar.
You’ll find many helpful hints in this cooking guide. Our aim is to help you use your Cadco LineChefTM
Digital Convection Oven to its fullest, rather than teach you how to cook.
The Cadco LineChefTM Digital Convection Ovens work on the principle of moving air. This air movement removes the “Hot Spots” so we get very even browning, rapid preheats (10 minutes), and faster cooking.
Here are some basic do’s and don’ts and guidelines for convection cooking:
♦ Use pans that have sides no taller than a common sheet pan.
♦ Preheat the oven to approximately 20% above your baking temperature. After loading your product,
remember to reset the oven to the desired baking temperature.
♦ Set the oven for your desired cooking temperature after you have placed the food inside.
♦ If you notice uneven cooking, set the oven temperature down 25º-30ºF. Let the product tell you if it
needs more or less heat.
♦ Aluminum foil can get pulled into the fan and cause damage.
♦ Don’t overload the oven.
♦
Maintain a minimum 2”-3” between the product being cooked and the next shelf. Remove shelves if necessary.
♦
Your Cadco Convection Oven is a powerful tool, so don’t hesitate to utilize its full capacity.
Keep your oven clean. Wipe up spills as they occur. Never allow grease to build up on the interior of
the oven, or collect on the bottom of the cooking cavity.
Frozen products draw more heat from the oven and may require a longer recovery time.
When roasting meats we suggest using a cooking rack to elevate the product and facilitate even
roasting. Smaller cuts such as boneless chicken breasts, or seafood portions may be baked directly on
the pan if desired.
Lower temperatures will reduce shrinkage and save money with all of your roasted meat products.
Higher geographical elevations will often affect cooking time and temperature parameters.

Have fun and experiment with your new Cadco Convection Oven. Your times and temperatures will vary
with the different products you prepare. Refer to this Cadco Cooking Guide for direction or contact the
Cadco Certified Executive Chef (877.603.7393) or the Cadco, Ltd. website (www.cadco-ltd.com), for
specific answers to your cooking needs. ***A FREE Video Demonstration DVD is available from Cadco to
familiarize your employees with these ovens.
We look forward to hearing from you,

Cookies
Baking Temperature
One of the most common items baked in your Cadco Convection Oven will be cookies. There are dozens of
cookie manufacturers, and their products all have different baking characteristics. Most of the cookie recipes
suggest a baking temperature of 325º - 350ºF. I have found that “Lower is better”. Over the years we have
found that cookies bake best in a preheated oven at about 285º - 300ºF, assuming a 1.5 ounce cookie from
refrigerated/frozen dough. By baking at a lower temperature, they tend to remain higher after cooling and
produce a more eye appealing finished product. Bake for about 12-18 minutes, depending on what you think
is the perfect cookie.
Variables
♦ Lower the temperature for larger cookies.
♦ Cookies bake from the outside in...so to make picture perfect cookies we have to consider two
variables before we begin baking, in any oven, or we may not be happy with our results. These two
factors come into play mostly when we make cookies from "scratch", (but they apply to all cookies):
1. The temperature of the dough
ƒ Room temperature dough will spread out more than frozen or refrigerated dough.
ƒ The colder the dough, the less the cookie will spread / flatten out during baking.
ƒ Dough baked from frozen produces a thicker, better-looking cookie than ones that are baked from
refrigerated, or room temperature, which will spread out and therefore, have less height.
2. The fat content of the dough.
ƒ A higher ratio of fat to flour will make the cookie spread out more during baking.
•
Cheesecake
People generally love cheesecake and it’s not hard to make. Let’s start with a basic cheesecake batter:
♦ #3 cream cheese
♦ 1 ½ cups sugar
♦ 5 eggs
♦ lemon to taste
♦ 2 cups Half and Half (approx.)
This will make enough batter for a 10” springform pan.
There are so many fun options for making cheesecake, such as:
♦ Substitute chocolate milk for Half and Half in a triple chocolate cheesecake.
♦ Orange juice for an orange cheesecake.
♦ Baileys Irish Cream.
♦ Cookie dough.
♦ Turtle cheesecake.
♦ Lemon poppy seed.
♦ Pumpkin…peanut butter…pistachio…what else?
For my crust, I usually spray the inside of the springform pan with vegetable oil and dust it with graham
cracker crumbs. There are endless options for crusts such as shortbread, brownie, or Ladyfingers, or my
simple dusting of graham crumbs. It’s your choice.
Bake in a 200ºF oven for 4 hours, then cool, cut and serve.
Have fun with some imaginative sauces also:
♦ Walnut, caramel and chocolate chip sauce.
♦ Lemon sauce.
♦ Pear sauce
♦ Pistachio sauce.
♦ Cinnamon Squared² Sauce (cinnamon stick and candies).

•
Muffins
♦ 15 minutes at 325ºF/ 20% humidity works well for most standard size muffins.
♦ For jumbo muffins set the oven temp at 300ºF/ 20% humidity and bake the muffins for 20 minutes or
until a toothpick comes out clean.
♦ The more dense your batter is the longer your muffins will take to bake.
•
Biscuits
For the test we used a basic baking powder biscuit about 3” in diameter. Bake at 350ºF for 10-12
minutes.
Some suggestions:
♦ A simple glaze can be made of powdered sugar and water.
♦ Glaze while your biscuits are still hot.
♦ Try peanut butter, lemon poppy seed, cinnamon raisin, cheese and bacon, sour dough, and of course,
good old buttermilk biscuits.
♦ Drop biscuits take about the same amount of time to bake and they are wonderful. Call me and I’ll
share a family favorite with you.
Biscuits can be so much fun to make and they are so easy that even kids can help make them. I remember
Mom throwing biscuits together for breakfast when we were growing up. Hot, delicious and full of TLC,
it just took her a few minutes, and I even got to help!
•
Bread
♦ Large loaves (1 lb -1 ½ lb) baked in 30 - 40 minutes at 325ºF.
♦ We found that you can bake dinner rolls using the same method as you do for biscuits.
♦ Call and ask about “Butterflake Dinner Rolls” You’ll love them! (While you have me on the phone
ask about sourdough starter. You’ll be amazed at how simple it is to make and to use.)
•
Pies
The variables for bakery products are endless, and pies are no exception. These are some of the things
which will affect your cooking time:
♦ Amount of sugar in the crust.
♦ Size of your pie tin and the amount of filling used.
♦ Butter or oil in the crust.
♦ Amount of shortening to flour.
♦ Your choice of canned or fresh filling.
For test pies we used 9” pie tins with homemade apple filling. Our crust was made using a basic 3-2-1 recipe:
♦ 3 parts flour
♦ 2 parts shortening
♦ 1 part (approx.) water
♦ With a little salt and a four finger pinch of sugar added
The Cadco LineChefTM Convection Oven was preheated to 325ºF and the pies were baked for 45 minutes
to an hour depending on the filling. The aroma coming out of the Cadco Training Center was fantastic!
•
Pizza
There are so many pizzas it’s hard to know where to start. The pizza we used for our tests were the 11”,
frozen, self rising type from the grocery store. They were all baked at 350ºF for 8 - 20 minutes on
FAKIROTM Heat Plates (see page 12), and our results were great on all of them. (The pizza
manufacturers suggested a temperature of 400ºF for 20-30 minutes).

“Oven Fried” Chicken
Let’s say that you want to serve fried chicken in your food service operation but you don't want all of
the problems associated with a chicken program. You don't want to deal with an expensive breading
program, the high insurance costs, constantly buying oil, employee training, the dangerous
cleaning/filtering of French fryers, and the high cost of purchasing equipment. Cadco has the answer:
how about "Oven Fried" chicken. We take cooked, frozen, browned chicken and season it with the
seasoning(s) of your choice to produce the most delicious, unique chicken your customers have ever
tasted...and it's all done in your oven in about 30 minutes. Your chicken goes from the freezer, to the
oven, to the display case (and your customers) in less time than it takes to fry from raw.
We suggest Pierce Super Chicken; lay it out in a Cadco Oven Fry Basket (Model GRF018/Full Size),
and season the pieces with any seasoning of your choice. Then you simply bake it in the Cadco
LineChefTM Convection Oven at 325ºF for 20 minutes and it's ready to serve. You can have Cajun, Lemon
Pepper, Italian, TexMex, Smoky, Jamaican, or…Whatever flavor you want, “Oven Fried” Chicken!
•
“Rotisserie Style” Chicken
Tired of paying the grocery store to make those delicious rotisserie chickens for you? Once you make
your own “Rotisserie” chickens, in your Cadco Convection Oven, you’ll never buy another cooked
chicken from the store again (and I’ll bet your customers won’t either).
♦ You’ll need a baking sheet pan and a cooking rack to keep your chicken elevated during the cooking
process. The cooking rack allows air to circulate all around the chicken, similar to a rotisserie. Cadco
offers a Model GRP825 Poultry Rack (for Full Size ovens only) which holds a maximum of eight 3
pound birds
♦ You can also place your chicken directly on the oven rack and let it drip into a pan below.
♦ Caution! Never allow grease to drip onto the bottom of the oven!
Method
♦ Season a #3 chicken and place it on the cooking rack. (For options, see below)
TM
♦ Preheat your LineChef
Convection Oven to 325ºF.
♦ Roast the chicken for about 45 minutes. If a crispier product is desired, raise the temperature to about 350ºF.
♦ Cook chicken to an internal temperature of 180ºF.
♦ Stuffing the chicken will increase cooking time and it is NOT suggested.
Options
♦ Slip slices of lemon under the skin on the breast before roasting.
♦ Italian sausage under the skin of the breast before roasting.
♦ Sun dried tomatoes, fresh herbs, under the skin before roasting.
♦ Spray the chicken with olive oil, season, and dust with mashed potato flakes before roasting.
♦ Save the chicken fat after roasting and chill it. Mix the fat, and a little stock, with left over shredded
chicken, and season with salt and pepper, to make a spread on slices of French bread. Needless to
say…this is NOT heart-healthy fare, but it sure is good.
♦ Truss the chicken before roasting for more even cooking and eye appeal. Call for my quick method of
trussing a bird.
•
18
Burgers
♦ Lay your ¼ pound frozen burgers out onto a sheet pan and season to taste. Place them into 350ºF oven
for about 10 to 12 minutes.
♦ Hamburger should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165ºF to be safe according to HACCP
guidelines.
♦ Try cooking your burgers at 250ºF for 15 to 20 minutes and notice how juicy they are. Browning is
not as pronounced using the low temperature method, but the added flavor makes up for it.
•
Rare Roast Beef
♦ Rare beef is considered by most people to be 130ºF.
♦ The USDA states that full muscle beef when roasted to an internal temperature of 130ºF and
maintained at that temperature for 121 minutes is considered safe to eat.
♦ Overnight roasting requires a roast that is 7 pounds or larger.
♦ Seasonings will penetrate the roast about 1/4” deep.
♦ We will give two examples of roast beef (Prime Rib and Roast Tenderloin):
ƒ Both roasts will be cooked elevated on a roasting rack so we have air circulation all around during
the roasting process.
ƒ Both roasts will be cooked over a shallow sided pan to collect the pan juices for jus or gravy.
Prime Rib (roast and hold method) Hold your beef roast for at least 8 hours, and keep the internal roast temperature from going higher
than 130ºF.
♦ Each hour of holding (between 100ºF and 140ºF) is equal to one day of ageing.
♦ Roast your 8 pound Prime Rib at 225ºF until your internal probe reads 100ºF.
♦ Set the oven for “Infinite/Continuous” time and 140ºF temperature. (You will notice that the lowest
temperature on the dial is 175ºF on manual oven models, so you will have to “best guess” where
140ºF is.)
♦
Roast Tenderloin (quick roast and serve method) –
Preheat your oven to 400ºF
♦ Load the tenderloin in the oven and reduce the roasting temperature to 350ºF
♦ Roast the tenderloin to an internal temperature of 120ºF and remove from the oven. The roast will
continue to rise in temperature.
♦ In about 10 minutes (130ºF) the tenderloin will be ready to slice and serve
♦
•
Jus
Use your pan drippings to make jus. Many people say “I’m going to make some au jus”. This is
incorrect and professionals will notice. Au jus means “with juice”. Prime Rib becomes “Prime Rib Au
Jus” when you add jus to the plated Prime Rib.
♦ Use beef/veal/chicken stock to dissolve all that wonderful tasting brown gooey material in the bottom
of your roasting pan. Some add a little red wine, some add tomato, and some make their jus to theme:
Cajun, Southwest, Oriental…..you get the idea.
