shock.
Electrical Requirements
The electrical requirements are a 120 volt 60 Hz, AC only, 15 amp.
or more protected electrical supply. It is recommended that a
separate circuit serving only this oven be provided.
The oven is equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug. It must
be plugged into a wall receptacle that is properly installed and
grounded. Should you only have a 2-prong outlet, have a qualified
electrician install a correct wall receptacle.
A 3-prong adapter may be purchased and used temporarily if local
codes allow. Follow package directions.
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce risk of becoming
entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.

Getting Started
IMPORTANT– Please Read and Follow
Extension Cord
If it is necessary to use an extension cord,
use only a 3-wire extension cord that has a
3-blade grounding plug and a 3-slot receptacle that will accept the plug on the Combi
Steam/Convect™ Oven. The marked rating
of the extension cord should be AC 115-120
volt, 15 amp. or more.
Be careful not to drape the cord over the
countertop or table where it can be pulled
on by children or tripped over accidentally.
Notes:
• If you have any questions about the
grounding or electrical instructions, consult a qualified electrician or service person.
• Neither Viking nor the dealer can accept any liability for damage
to the oven or personal injury resulting from failure to observe
the correct electrical connection procedures.
Radio Or Tv Interference
Should there be any interference caused by the Combi Steam/
Convect™ Oven to your radio or TV, check that the Combi Steam/
Convect™ Oven is on a different electrical circuit, relocate the radio
or TV as far away from the drawer as feasible or check position and
signal of receiving antenna.
About Your Combi Steam/Convect™
Oven
This Use and Care Guide is valuable: read it carefully and always
save it for reference.
The Viking Combi Steam/Convect™ Oven Cookbook is a valuable
asset. Check it frequently for cooking principles, techniques, hints
and recipes.

About Cooking Options
Your oven has a variety of cooking options that are divided into
automatic and manual. Steam Convection, Steam and Microwave
have both automatic and manual choices. Convection has only
manual.
Steam Convection
Steam is combined with convection heating, which can roast or
broil foods and allow excess fats to be removed. These foods
retain moisture. Meats and poultry are brown, juicy and flavorful.
Steam
Steam-only gently cooks foods such as vegetables, fish, seafood
and poached eggs while retaining moisture, natural flavors and
nutrients.
Convection
Convection browns, bakes, broils and crisps a wide variety of
foods. Cookies, cakes, breads, muffins, biscuits and rolls can be
baked on one or two levels. There are no automatic settings for
convection. Refer to your Steam Cookbook or to Convection in
Manual Operations.
Microwave
Microwave is fast and convenient for cooking, defrosting and
popping popcorn. With Sensor Reheat, Sensor Cook and Sensor
Popcorn, it is unnecessary to enter amount. The sensor eliminates
guesswork.
About Steam Convection And Steam
Cooking
There are certain techniques for cooking with steam. It is essential
that these techniques are followed for good results. Many of
them are similar to those used in conventional cooking so may
require little change. Note information in all of the charts in the
cookbook for all cooking options that use Steam Convection (Roast,
Convenience Foods, Broil) and Steam (Cook, Reheat, Keep Warm
and Proof).
• Always attend the oven when in use.
11
E
Getting Started
IMPORTANT– Please Read and Follow
• Use utensils/cookware suitable for the cooking mode as described on pages 17-21.
• Ventilate the room to allow the steam to dissipate.
• Refer to the charts in the Combi Steam/Convect™ Oven Cookbook for recommended cooking settings and times.
• After cooking and the oven has cooled, remove and empty the
reservoir, wipe oven cavity with a soft cloth or sponge. Wait a
few minutes, then empty the drip tray.
For Steam Cooking
COOKING TECHNIQUES
Baking tray,
Place food in steam basket on high rack in bakHigh rack,
ing tray so steam reaches all sides and cooking
Steam basket is even. For faster cooking, use upper level in
oven. Foods crowded together will take longer
to cook, so position with enough space between
items to allow the steam to circulate.
E
Covering
Covering is not necessary in most cases. If a
cover is required, aluminum foil is recommended
to keep food from becoming wet.
Door
For accurate cooking times, keep the door
closed.
Stir
Sometimes soups or casseroles reheated without
covering look watery after cooking. Appearance
will be better if stirred well.
Stand
Standing time is recommended after cooking
to allow heat to disperse equally throughout
the food. Do not allow to stand in the oven for
a long time; food may be overcooked or wet
from the residual steam.

to prepare them for freezing. Place the prepared
vegetables in the steam basket on the high rack
in the baking tray. Use upper level in oven. Press
STEAM, MANUAL and desired time 4 - 5 minutes.
Press START. After steaming, put in cold water to

For Steam Convection and Steam Cooking
FOOD CHARACTERISTICS
Density
Food density will affect the amount of cooking
time. Cut the food into thinner parts, if possible,
and arrange in single layer.
Quantity
The cooking time must be increased as the
amount increases.
Size
Small foods and small pieces cook faster than
large ones, as heat can penetrate from all sides to
the center. For even cooking make all the pieces
the same size.
Shape
Foods which are irregular in shape, such as
chicken breasts or drumsticks, may take longer to
cook in the thicker parts. Check that these parts
are cooked thoroughly before serving.
Temperature The initial temperature of food affects the cooking
of food
time. Chilled foods will take longer to cook than
foods at room temperature. The temperature of
the container is not the actual temperature of the
food or drink.
Seasoning
and flavoring
Seasoning or flavoring are best added after cooking. If added as marinades or rubs, the taste may
become less pronounced when cooking with
steam. Add seasoning or flavoring again after
cooking, if necessary.
13
E
Getting Started
IMPORTANT– Please Read and Follow
• Check that food is thoroughly cooked/reheated before serving.
• Cooking time will be affected by the shape, depth, quantity and
temperature of food together with the size, shape and material
of the container.
• Never heat oil or fat for deep frying as this may lead to overheating and fire.
CAUTION
Always use dry pot holders or oven mitts to remove food or utensils
from the oven. Be careful when opening the oven door to allow
steam to dissipate.
About Microwave Cooking
• ALWAYS have food in the oven when it is on to absorb the
microwave energy.
• Your oven is rated 700 watts using the IEC Test Procedure. In
using recipes or package directions, check food at the minimum
time and add time accordingly.
• Condensation is a normal part of microwave cooking. Room
humidity and the moisture in food will influence the amount of
moisture that condenses in the oven. Generally, covered foods
will not cause as much condensation as uncovered ones. Vents
on the oven back must not be blocked.
• Arrange food carefully. Place thickest areas towards outside
of dish.
• Watch cooking time. Cook for the shortest amount of time indicated and add more as needed. Food severely overcooked
can smoke or ignite.
• Cover foods while cooking. Check recipe or cookbook for suggestions: paper towels, wax paper, microwave plastic wrap or
a lid. Covers prevent spattering and help foods to cook evenly.
• Shield with small flat pieces of aluminum foil any thin areas of
meat or poultry to prevent overcooking before dense, thick
areas are cooked thoroughly.
• Stir foods from outside to center of dish once or twice during
cooking, if possible.
E
14
Getting Started
IMPORTANT– Please Read and Follow
• Turn foods over once during microwaving to speed cooking of
such foods as chicken and hamburgers. Large items like roasts
must be turned over at least once.
• Rearrange foods like meatballs halfway through cooking both
from top to bottom and from the center of the dish to the outside.
• Add standing time. Remove food from Combi Steam/Convect™
Oven and stir, if possible. Cover for standing time which allows
the food to finish cooking without overcooking.
• Check for doneness. Look for signs indicating that cooking
temperatures have been reached.
Doneness signs include:
- Food steams throughout, not just at edge.
- Center bottom of dish is very hot to the touch.
- Poultry thigh joints move easily.
- Meat and poultry show no pinkness.
- Fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.

About children
Children below the age of 7 should use the Combi Steam/
Convect™ Oven with a supervising person very near to them.
Between the ages of 7 and 12, the supervising person should
be in the same room. The child must be able to reach the oven
comfortably.
At no time should anyone be allowed to lean or swing on the
oven door.
Children should be taught all safety precautions: use potholders,
remove coverings carefully, pay special attention to packages that
crisp food because they may be extra hot.
Don't assume that because a child has mastered one cooking skill
he/she can cook everything.
Children need to learn that the oven is not a toy. Young children
should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the oven.
About Safety
• Check foods to see that they are cooked to the United States
Department of Agriculture's recommended temperatures.

to be moved, always drain all water inside the oven using the
Drain Water Function (See pages 29-30). After draining, empty
the drip tray.
• To prevent condensation, which could corrode the appliance,
do not leave cooked food in the oven for an extended period.
• Clean the oven at regular intervals and remove any food deposits
in the oven or on the door.
• Do not heat oil or fat for deep frying.
• ALWAYS use potholders to prevent burns when handling utensils
that are in contact with hot food. Enough heat from the food can
transfer through utensils to cause skin burns. In Steam Convection, Steam and Convection modes, cabinet, interior and door
may be too hot to touch.
• Keep aluminum foil used for shielding at least 1 inch (2.54 cm)
away from walls, ceiling and door for microwave cooking.
• Do not pour cold water on the ceramic oven floor after cooking
as it might break.
• Do not pour cold water on the door as it might break.
• Do not touch hot surfaces.
• The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the
appliance manufacturer may cause injuries.
• The oven should not be left unattended during operation. Oven
temperatures that are too high or cooking times that are too
long may overheat foods resulting in a fire.

Getting Started
IMPORTANT– Please Read and Follow
• Do not insert fingers or objects in the steam outlets or air vent
openings, as this may damage the oven and cause an electric
shock or a hazard.
• If any objects drop inside the air vent openings, turn off the oven
immediately, unplug and consult a Viking Authorized Servicer.
• Do not touch the plug with wet hands when inserting or removing from the outlet. Plug securely into the electric wall receptacle
and remove by gripping on the plug end. Never pull using just
the cord.
• Do not put anything weighing more than 11 pounds (5 kg) on
the door to prevent damage to the door or door hinges and to
prevent tilting/falling of the oven. Do not hang anything heavy
from the handle nor lean on it.

Operation
MICROWAVE COOKING WITH SENSOR
Viking's Sensor is a semi-conductor device that detects the vapor
(moisture and humidity) emitted from the food as it heats. The
sensor adjusts the cooking times and power level for various foods
and quantities.
Using Sensor Settings:
• After the oven is plugged in, wait 2 minutes before cooking with
Sensor function.
• Be sure the exterior of the cooking container and the interior
of the oven are dry. Wipe off any moisture with a dry cloth or
paper towel.
• The oven works with foods at normal storage temperature. For
example, popcorn would be at room temperature.
• Any Sensor Cook selection can be programmed with More or
Less Time Adjustment. See page 65.
45
E
Automatic Cooking
• More or less food than the quantity listed in the chart should be
cooked following the guidelines in any microwave cookbook.
• During the first part of cooking with Sensor function, SENSING
will appear on the display. Do not open the oven door or press
STOP/CLEAR during this part of the cooking cycle. The measurement of vapor will be interrupted. If this occurs, an error
message will appear. To continue cooking, press STOP/CLEAR
and cook manually. When the sensor detects the vapor emitted
from the food, the remainder of cooking time will appear. The
door may be opened when remaining cooking time appears in
the display. At this time, you may stir or season food, as desired.
• If the sensor does not detect vapor properly, ERROR will be
displayed, and the oven will turn off.
• Check food for temperature or doneness after cooking. If food is
not completely cooked, enter additional cooking time manually.
Do not repeat cooking with Sensor function again as food may
overcook.
Sensor Reheat can be set two ways:
1.Quick way (see page 51).
2.Microwave, MANUAL. REHEAT and then SENSOR REHEAT.
Covering Foods:
Operation
Some foods work best when covered. Use the cover recommended
in the Sensor Cook Chart for these foods.
• Casserole lid.
• Plastic wrap: Use plastic wrap recommended for microwave
cooking. Cover dish loosely; allow approximately 1/2-inch to
remain uncovered to allow steam to escape. Plastic wrap should
not touch food.
• Wax paper: Cover dish completely; fold excess wrap under dish
to secure. If dish is wider than paper,overlap two pieces at least
one inch to cover. Be careful when removing any covering to
allow steam to escape away from you.

MANUAL DEFROST
If the food that you wish to defrost is not listed on the Defrost
Chart or is above or below the limits in the "Amount" column on
the Defrost Chart on page 53, you need to defrost manually.
You can defrost any frozen food, either raw or previously cooked, by
using Power Level 30%. Follow the exact 4-step procedure found
under Microwave Time Cooking, To Set Power Level. Estimate
defrosting time and select 30% when you select the power level.
Operation
For either raw or previously cooked frozen food the rule of thumb
is approximately 5 minutes per pound. For example, defrost 5
minutes for 1 pound of frozen spaghetti sauce. Always stop the
oven periodically to remove or separate the portions that are
defrosted. If food is not defrosted at the end of the estimated
defrosting time, program the oven in 1 minute increments on Power
Level 30% until totally defrosted. When using plastic containers
from the freezer, defrost only long enough to remove from the
plastic in order to place in a microwave-safe dish.
KEEP WARM
Use Keep Warm to keep food at serving temperature.

Cleaning and Care
CLEAN THE OVEN REGULARLY. Spatters and residue remaining
from prolonged use, especially at high temperatures, are hard
to clean and may interfere with good oven operation as well as
decrease the useful life of the oven.
IMPORTANT CAUTIONS:
• Disconnect the power cord if possible.
• Allow the oven to cool before cleaning.
• Do not use oven cleaners or harsh scouring pads on any
part of the oven.
• Do not use a steam cleaner.
Oven Cleaning - Exterior
Prepare a solution of mild soap and water, immerse a soft cloth or
sponge into the solution and wring dry. Wipe exterior. Do not use
any type of harsh abrasive cleaner. Rinse cloth or sponge in warm
water and wring dry. Wipe exterior again and polish dry.
Door
Wipe the window on both sides with a damp cloth to remove any
spills or spatters. Metal parts will be easier to maintain if wiped
frequently with a soft damp cloth. Avoid the use of spray and other
harsh cleaners as they may stain, streak or dull the door surface.
When cleaning surfaces of door and oven that come together on
closing the door, use only mild, non abrasive soaps,or detergents
applied with a sponge or soft cloth.
Control Panel
71
Product Care
Care should be taken in cleaning the control panel. If the control
panel becomes soiled, open the oven door before cleaning. Wipe
the panel with a cloth dampened slightly with water only. Dry with
a soft cloth. Do not scrub or use any sort of chemical cleaners.
Close the door and press STOP/CLEAR.
E
Cleaning and Care
Oven Cleaning - Interior
STEAM CLEAN The Steam Clean function helps to loosen any grease, oil or food
residue. The steam will make the oven easy to clean; however, it is
not a self-cleaning function. It will take approximately 20 minutes
for the cleaning cycle.
PREPARATION
• Make sure that the reservoir is filled with fresh cold tap water
and is installed. (See page 27.)
• Make sure that the empty drip tray is installed. (See page 28.)
1.Press BACK/INFO, turn the Dial to select STEAM CLEAN and
press ENTER.
2.Press START.
Allow the oven to cool to prevent burns. Then open the door
and remove any residue carefully with soft, damp cloth. Finally,
remove and empty the reservoir. Wait a few minutes, then empty
the drip tray.
To clean the interior surfaces, wipe with a soft cloth and warm water.
• After every use while the oven is still warm, wipe spatters or
spills with a soft damp cloth or sponge. DO NOT USE ABRASIVE
OR HARSH CLEANERS OR SCOURING PADS. For heavier soil,
use mild soap; rinse thoroughly with hot water. Carry out Steam
Clean function to clean thoroughly.
• The cleaning cloth or sponge must be wrung dry to prevent
moisture or residue from entering the oven vents.
• Do not use spray type cleaners on the oven interior.
Product Care
• Any remaining food or fat could cause smoke or an unpleasant
smell. It is a good idea to heat the oven with Steam Convection
Broil in manual operation for 20 minutes without preheat and
food to remove any fat or residue from the interior ducts and
heaters and unpleasant smell. See Clean The Oven Before First
Use on page 33.
Door Gasket
The door gasket is essential for a good seal. Always keep the gasket
clean to prevent any damage. If water condenses inside the door
E
72
Cleaning and Care
gasket, wipe dry with a soft cloth. Polish with another soft cloth.
Do not use a chemical or abrasive cleaner on these surfaces. Care
should be taken not to rub, damage, pull or move the gasket. Before cooking, always check that door gasket is lying smooth and
flat. If not, steam will leak from the door. Do not use Combi Steam/
Convect™ Oven if it has a damaged door gasket as steam would
not be contained in the oven. Consult a Viking Authorized Service.
Baking Tray / High Rack / Low Rack /
Steam Basket
Wash baking tray, high rack, low rack and steam basket after cooking with a mild soap or detergent solution, rinsing and polishing
dry. Do not use harsh cleaners, sharp metal scrapers or stiff brushes
to prevent damage to the easy clean surface. All the accessories
can be washed in the dishwasher. Place them on the top rack in
the dishwasher.
Reservoir and Reservoir Lid
After cooking, wash in a mild soap or detergent solution with a
soft damp cloth or sponge, rinse and polish dry. Do not wash in
the dishwasher. Note the filter in the rear bottom of the reservoir.
Use a very soft brush to remove any build-up in the filter. The
filter cannot be removed nor replaced so special care should be
taken not to tear the mesh of the filter when cleaning it. Do not
use harsh cleaners, sharp metal scrapers or stiff brushes on the
reservoir, reservoir lid and reservoir filter. Do not use a torn filter.
Order replacement. See inside front cover.
Drip Tray and Drip Tray Lid
Empty drip tray after cooking, wash in a mild soap or detergent
solution with a soft damp cloth or sponge, rinse, polish dry and
replace below the oven front. Do not wash in the dishwasher.
