To Prevent Fire or Smoke Damage
Child Safety (cont.)
• Be sure all packing materials are removed from the appliance before
operating it.
• Keep area around appliance clear and free from combustible materials,
gasoline, and other flammable vapors and materials.
• If appliance is installed near a window, proper precautions should be taken
to prevent curtains from blowing over burners.
• NEVER leave any items on the rangetop. The hot air from the vent may ignite
flammable items and may increase pressure in closed containers which may
cause them to burst.
• Many aerosol-type spray cans are EXPLOSIVE when exposed to heat and
may be highly flammable. Avoid their use or storage near an appliance.
• Many plastics are vulnerable to heat. Keep plastics away from parts of the
appliance that may become warm or hot. DO NOT leave plastic items on
the rangetop as they may melt or soften if left too close to the vent or a
lighted surface burner.
• Combustible items (paper, plastic, etc.) may ignite and metallic items
may become hot and cause burns. DO NOT pour spirits over hot foods.
DO NOT leave oven unsupervised when drying herbs, breads,
mushrooms, etc; fire hazard.
• Children must be taught that the appliance and utensils in it can be hot.
Let hot utensils cool in a safe place, out of reach of small children.
Children should be taught that an appliance is not a toy. Children should not
be allowed to play with controls or other parts of the appliance.
In Case of Fire
Turn off appliance and ventilating hood to avoid spreading the flame. Extinguish
flame then turn on hood to remove smoke and odor.
• Cooktop: Smother fire or flame in a pan with a lid or cookie sheet.
• NEVER pick up or move a flaming pan.
• Oven: Smother fire or flame by closing the oven door. DO NOT use water
on grease fires. Use baking soda, a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher to
smother fire or flame.
• GREASE–Grease is flammable and should be handled carefully. DO NOT
use water on grease fires. Flaming grease can be extinguished with
baking soda or, if available, a multipurpose dry chemical or foam type
extinguisher. Let fat cool before attempting to handle it. DO NOT allow
grease to collect around the oven or in vents. Wipe up spillovers
immediately.
Child Safety
• NEVER leave children alone or unsupervised near the appliance when it is in
use or is still hot.
• NEVER allow children to sit or stand on any part of the appliance as they
could be injured or burned.
• DO NOT store items of interest to children over the unit. Children climbing to
reach items could be seriously injured.
6
Cooking Safety
• To eliminate the hazard of reaching over hot surface burners, cabinet
storage should not be provided directly above a unit. If storage is provided,
it should be limited to items which are used infrequently and which are
safely stored in an area subjected to heat from an appliance. Temperatures
may be unsafe for some items, such as volatile liquids, cleaners or
aerosol sprays.
• ALWAYS place a pan on a surface burner before turning it on. Be sure
you know which knob controls which surface burner. Make sure the correct
burner is turned on and that the burner has ignited. When cooking is
completed, turn burner off before removing pan to prevent exposure to
burner flame.
• ALWAYS adjust surface burner flame so that it does not extend beyond the
bottom edge of the pan. An excessive flame is hazardous, wastes energy
and may damage the appliance, pan or cabinets above the appliance.
This is based on safety considerations.
• NEVER leave a surface cooking operation unattended especially when using
a high heat setting or when deep fat frying. Boilovers cause smoking and
greasy spillovers may ignite. Clean up greasy spills as soon as possible.
DO NOT use high heat for extended cooking operations.
• DO NOT heat unopened food containers, build up of pressure may cause
the container to explode and result in injury.
• Use dry, sturdy pot-holders. Damp pot-holders may cause burns from steam.
Dishtowels or other substitutes should NEVER be used as potholders
because they can trail across hot surface burners and ignite or get caught on
appliance parts.
• ALWAYS let quantities of hot fat used for deep fat frying cool before
attempting to move or handle.
• DO NOT let cooking grease or other flammable materials accumulate in or
near the appliance, hood or vent fan. Clean hood frequently to prevent
grease from accumulating on hood or filter. When flaming foods under the
hood, turn the fan off.
• NEVER wear garments made of flammable material or loose fitting or
long-sleeved apparel while cooking. Clothing may ignite or catch utensil
handles. DO NOT drape towels or materials on oven door handles. These
items could ignite and cause burns.

Cooking Safety (cont.)
Utensil Safety (cont.)
• ALWAYS place oven racks in the desired positions while oven is cool.
Slide oven rack out to add or remove food, using dry, sturdy pot-holders.
ALWAYS avoid reaching into the oven to add or remove food. If a rack
must be moved while hot, use a dry pot-holder.
• ALWAYS turn the oven off at the end of cooking.
• Use care when opening the oven door. Let hot air or steam escape before
moving or replacing food.
• NEVER use aluminum foil to cover oven racks or oven bottom. This could
result in risk of electric shock, fire, or damage to the appliance. Use foil only
as directed in this guide.
• PREPARED FOOD WARNING: Follow food manufacturer's instructions. If a
plastic frozen food container and/or its cover distorts, warps, or is otherwise
damaged during cooking, immediately discard the food and its container. The
food could be contaminated.
• If you are “flaming” liquor or other spirits under an exhaust, TURN THE
FAN OFF. The draft could cause the flames to spread out of control.
• Once the unit has been installed as outlined in the Installation
Instructions, it is important that the fresh air supply is not obstructed.
The use of a gas cooking appliance results in the production of heat and
moisture in the room in which it is installed. Ensure that the kitchen is
well-ventilated. Keep natural venting holes open or install a mechanical
ventilation device. Prolonged or intensive use of the appliance may call
for additional (such as opening a window) or more effective ventilation
(such as increasing the level of a mechanical ventilation if present).
• Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic or glazed utensils are
suitable for rangetop surface or oven usage without breaking due to the
sudden change in temperature. Follow manufacturer's instructions when
using glass.
• This appliance has been tested for safe performance using conventional
cookware. DO NOT use any devices or accessories that are not specifically
recommended in this guide. DO NOT use eyelid covers for the surface units,
stovetop grills, or add-on oven convection systems. The use of devices or
accessories that are not expressly recommended in this manual can create
serious safety hazards, result in performance problems, and reduce the life
of the components of the appliance.
• The flame of the burner should be adjusted to just cover the bottom of
the pan or pot. Excessive burner setting may cause scorching of
adjacent counter-top surfaces, as well as the outside of the utensil. This
is based on safety considerations.
Utensil Safety
• Use pans with flat bottoms and handles that are easily grasped and stay
cool. Avoid using unstable, warped, easily tipped or loose-handled pans.
Also avoid using pans, especially small pans, with heavy handles as they
could be unstable and easily tip. Pans that are heavy to move when filled
with food may also be hazardous.
• Be sure utensil is large enough to properly contain food and avoid boilovers.
Pan size is particularly important in deep fat frying. Be sure pan will
accommodate the volume of food that is to be added as well as the bubble
action of fat.
• To minimize burns, ignition of flammable materials and spillage due to
unintentional contact with the utensil, DO NOT extend handles over
adjacent surface burners. ALWAYS turn pan handles toward the side or back
of the appliance, not out into the room where they are easily hit or reached
by small children.
• NEVER let a pan boil dry as this could damage the utensil and the appliance.
• Follow the manufacturer's directions when using oven cooking bags.
8
Heating Elements
• NEVER touch oven bake and broil burner areas or interior surfaces of oven.
• Bake and broil burners may be hot even though they are dark in color. Areas
near burners and interior surfaces of an oven may become hot enough to
cause burns.
• During and after use, DO NOT touch or let clothing or other flammable
materials contact heating elements, areas near elements, or interior surfaces
of oven until they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the
oven may become hot enough to cause burns, such as the oven vent
opening, the surface near the vent opening, and the oven door window.
Cleaning Safety
• Turn off all controls and wait for appliance parts to cool before touching or
cleaning them. DO NOT touch the burner grates or surrounding areas until
they have had sufficient time to cool.
• Clean appliance with caution. Use care to avoid steam burns if a wet sponge
or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot surface. Some cleaners can produce
noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.
• DO NOT clean door gasket. It is essential for a good tight seal. Care
should be taken not to rub, damage, or move the gasket.
• No commercial oven cleaner or oven liner protective coating such as
aluminum foil should be used in or around any part of the oven.
Improper oven liners may result in a risk of electric shock or fire. Keep
oven free from grease buildup.

Oven Functions and Settings
Surface Operation
BAKE (Natural Airflow Bake)
Lighting Burners
Use this setting for baking, roasting, and casseroles.
All burners are ignited by electric ignition. There are
no open-flame, “standing” pilots.
CONVECTION BAKE
Use this setting to bake and roast foods at the same time with minimal
taste transfer.
BROIL (Infrared Broil)
Product Controls
Use this setting for broiling dark meats at 1” thickness or less where
rare or medium doneness is desired.
CONVECTION BROIL (Infrared Convection Broil)
Use this setting to broil thick cuts of meat.
Convection Dehydrate (CONVECTION BAKE)
Use this function to dehydrate fruits and vegetables.
Convection Defrost (CONVECTION BAKE)
Use this function to defrost foods.
Note: For more information on oven functions see “Operation”
section.
Surface Burners-Automatic Reignition
To light the surface burners, push and turn the
appropriate control knob counter clockwise to any position.
This control is both a gas valve and an electric switch. Burners will ignite
at any “ON” position with the automatic re-ignition system. If the flame
goes out for any reason, the burners will automatically reignite if the gas
is still flowing. When gas is permitted to flow to the burners, the electric
igniters start sparking. On all surface igniters you should hear a “clicking”
sound. If you do not, turn off the control and check that the unit is
plugged in and that the fuse or circuit breaker is not blown or tripped.
Within a few moments, enough gas will have traveled to the burner to
light. When the burner lights, turn the burner control to any position to
adjust the flame size. Setting the proper flame height for the desired
cooking process and selecting the correct cooking vessel will result in
superior cooking performance, while also saving time and energy.
Vari-Simmer™
TruPower Plus™ Burner (where applicable)
Certain model ranges are equipped with a TruPower Plus 18,500 BTU
burner in the front right burner position. This burner is designed to
provide extra high heat output, especially when using large pans, and
should be used for boiling large quantities or if you need to bring
something to a boild quickly. While the TruPower Plus burner has the
extra power needed to bring large quantities of liquid to a boil rapidly, it
is also able to be turned down low enough to provide a very low and
delicate simmer making this burner the most versatile burner on the
market.
20
21
Operation
Simmering is a cooking technique in which foods are cooked in hot
liquids kept at or just barely below the boiling point of water. Simmering
ensures gentler treatment than boiling to prevent food from toughening
and/or breaking up. The size of the pan and the volume of food can have
a significant effect on how high or low a flame is needed for simmering.
For this reason, Viking range and rangetop burners are engineered with a
Vari-Simmer setting. The Vari-Simmer setting is not just one simmer
setting, but provides a variable range of simmer settings. This variable
range of simmer settings allows you to adjust the flame height to achieve
the best simmer depending on the type and quantity of food being
simmered. It is this ability that makes the Vari-Simmer setting the most
accurate and trustworthy simmer on the market.
Surface Operation
Griddle/Simmer Plate (on applicable models)
Surface Cooking Tips
• Use low or medium flame heights when cooking in vessels that are
poor conductors of heat, such as glass, ceramic, and cast-iron.
Reduce the flame height until it covers approximately 1/3 of the
cooking vessel diameter. This will ensure more even heating within
the cooking vessel and reduce the likelihood of burning or
scorching the food.
• Reduce the flame if it is extending beyond the bottom of the
cooking vessel. A flame that extends along the sides of the vessel is
potentially dangerous, heats the utensil handle and kitchen instead
of the food, and wastes energy.
• Reduce the flame height to the minimum level necessary to perform
the desired cooking process. Remember that food cooks just as
quickly at a gentle boil as it does at a rolling boil. Maintaining a
higher boil than is necessary wastes energy, cooks away moisture,

The optional 15,000 BTU griddle is constructed of machined steel with a
blanchard finish and is uniquely designed to offer excellent cooking
performance as well as easy clean up. The griddle is equipped with an
electronic thermostat to maintain an even temperature across the
griddle once the desired temperature has been set. The griddle has a
power “ON” indicator light which glows when the griddle thermostat
has been turned on. This will cycle on and off as needed to indicate the
thermostat is maintaining the selected temperature. Before the griddle is
used it is important to season the griddle. This seasoning process will
change the appearance of the griddle plate. However, it will also prevent
food from sticking and protect the surface from moisture.
Seasoning the Griddle Before the First Use
• Scrub the griddle plate with a mixture of one quart warm water and
1/4 cup white vinegar, using a blue Scotch-Brite™ pad. Dry thoroughly.
• Wash griddle with warm, soapy water. Rinse off and dry thoroughly.
• Season griddle by thinly coating the surface with approximately 1⁄2
to 1 teaspoon unsalted vegetable oil. Apply to entire griddle using a
paper towel or clean cloth. Let oil sit on griddle for approximately 1
hour and then wipe with a clean cloth or paper towel to absorb any
residual oil. The griddle is now ready to be used.
Griddle/Simmer Plate Operation
• Turn the griddle control knob counterclockwise to the desired
temperature setting. The power “ON” indicator light will glow
indicating the griddle thermostat is on.
• The double griddle has two thermostat control knobs which
control separate burners located beneath the griddle.
• When the griddle has reached the desired
Griddle Assembly
temperature, the power “ON” indicator
light will turn off indicating the griddle is
Grease trough
preheated to the selected temperature.
• Use liquid cooking oil or butter for eggs,
pancakes, French toast, fish and sandwiches
Griddle
to prevent sticking.
• Routinely scrape loose food particles with a
metal spatula during cooking to make the
cleanup easier and to avoid the particles
mixing with the food.
• To turn the griddle off, turn the thermostat knob clockwise to the
“OFF” position.
• ALWAYS turn to the“OFF” position when not in use and lower the
heat between cooking loads.
Note: On griddle model ranges, the griddle/simmer plate will not
function during the self-clean cycle.

Griddle/Simmer Plate Clean Up & Care
Char-Grill (on applicable models)
• It is not necessary to wash the griddle after every use. When light
cooking is performed and AFTER the griddle has cooled, simply
wipe down the surface with a clean cloth or paper towel. The oils in
the food which cooked on the griddle surface will naturally season
the griddle providing a “natural” non-stick surface.
• After heavy cooking is completed and the griddle is still warm
enough to create steam, pour a small amount of club soda at room
temperature directly on the griddle. Using a metal spatula, pull oils
and food particles toward the trough in front. Wipe entire surface
with a paper towel. Follow with the seasoning process of applying oil.
• Keeping the griddle well seasoned will prevent the griddle from
developing surface rust. If the griddle is not used for a period of
time, it must be re-seasoned. The griddle must be re-seasoned each
time after it is washed.
• Non-stick cooking spray is not recommended as it contains a high
water content that has a tendency to burn quickly.
• Corn oil is not recommended as it has a high sugar level. It will
caramelize and burn on the surface making it very difficult to remove.
• After using the griddle, always remove the grease trough located in
the front. Simply pull the trough towards you and lift out. The trough
or tray trap needs to be cleaned after each use. A fire hazard may
occur if grease is accumulated in the trough.
• Note: It is normal for the griddle to darken over time. This is the sign
of a well seasoned griddle.
• Important: Never flood a hot griddle with cold water. This thermal
shock promotes griddle warping and can cause the griddle to crack if
continued over a period of time.
• For heavy duty cleaning, Viking offers a Griddle Cleaning Kit (model
#GCK). This fast and effective commercial grade cleaning system will
clean your griddle in a matter of minutes. To order, contact your local
Viking dealer or order on the Viking website at vikingrange.com.
The optional 18,000 BTU char-grill is equipped with a single piece,
heavy-duty porcelainized cast-iron grill grate for easy movement of
grilling items. Beneath the grill grate are two slotted porcelainized
flavor generator plates which are designed to catch drippings and
circulate a smoke flavor back into the food. Beneath the flavor
generator plates is a two piece drip pan which catches any drippings
that might pass beyond the flavor generator plates. This unique grilling
system is designed to provide outdoor quality grilling indoors.

Char-Grill Assembly
Before using the char-grill, you will need to follow these steps to properly
assemble the char-grill.
• Remove the two flavor generator plates and grill grate from the
cardboard packaging.
• Position the flavor generator plates so that the tab on each plate is
inserted in the right, rear hole and left, front hole on the drip pans.
(See char-grill assembly section on following pages.)
• After the flavor generator plates are properly located, place the grill
grate on top of the flavor generator plates. After this, the char-grill is
assembled and ready to use.
Char-Grill Operation
• Turn the overhead ventilation on prior to turning the grill on.
• Turn the grill knob counterclockwise to HI.
• Always preheat the grill for 5-10 minutes before placing food on the
grill grate.
• Place food items on the grill, cook as desired.
• To turn the grill off, turn the grill knob clockwise to the OFF position.
Char-Grill Cooking Tips
• When grilling chicken, roasts, well-done steaks or chops and thick
pieces of meat, sear on HI. Then, reduce the heat setting to prevent
excessive flare-up. This will allow the food to cook through without
burning the outside.
• After steaks, chops, or hamburgers have been allowed to sear for
approximately one minute, you may slide a spatula under the meat
and turn it approximately 90 degrees so that a waffle pattern will be
seared onto the food.
• Use a metal spatula instead of tongs or a fork to turn the meat. A
spatula will not puncture the meat allowing juices to escape.
• Turn the meat over only once. Juices are lost when steaks, chops or
hamburgers are turned several times. The best time to turn the meat
is after the juices have begun to bubble to the surface.

Char-Grill Cooking Tips (cont.)
Char-Grill Assembly (cont.)
• To test for doneness, make a small slash in the center of the meat,
not the edge. This will prevent loss of juices.
• Occasionally there may be flare-ups or flames above the grill due to
drops of fat falling on the flavor generator plates. It is normal to have
some flare-up during grilling. Use a long handled spatula to move
food to another area until the flames subside.
• For ease of cleaning, leave the char-grill on for 10 minutes when
finished grilling. This will help make cleanup easier once the char-grill
has cooled down.
Char-Grill Disassembly for Cleaning
Follow these steps to disassemble the char-grill for cleaning. Make sure
the char-grill is completely cool before attempting to disassemble for
cleaning.
Remove the char-grill grate.
Remove the flavor-generator plates.
Remove the drip pan. Note that the drip pan is a two-piece drip pan.
Located beneath the burner is the drip tray. Under normal grilling
circumstances very little if any grease will accumulate in the drip tray.
If any grease has accumulated in the drip tray, simply wipe out with a
paper towel or damp cloth.

Char-Grill Clean Up & Care
• Char-grill grates:
o May be cleaned immediately after cooking is complete and before
turning off the flame. Before cleaning the grill, turn the flame
down to a lower setting such as “MED” or “LOW”. Use a soft
bristle brush to scrub the grill grate. Dip the brush frequently into
a bowl of water. Steam is created as the water contacts the hot
grate. The steam assists the cleaning process by softening the
food particles.
o For a thorough cleaning of the grill grate, use grill cleaner
according to manufacturer’s directions and then soak 15-20
minutes in a hot water and mild detergent solution. After soaking,
scrub with a blue Scotch-Brite™ pad. DO NOT use a steel wool
pad or abrasive cleaner, for risk of damaging the porcelain finish.
Dry thoroughly.
• Flavor generator plates and drip pan:
o Scrape off all burned on debris. The flavor generator plates and
drip pan are dishwasher safe. If you choose to not wash these
components in the dishwasher, then simply soak for 15-20 minutes
in a hot water and mild detergent solution. After soaking, scrub
with a blue Scotch-Brite™ pad.

Using the Oven
Cooking Vessels
Conventional and Convection Cooking
Each cook has his or her own preference for the particular cooking
vessels that are most appropriate for the type of cooking being done.
Any and all cooking vessels are suitable for use in the range and it is
not necessary to replace your present domestic vessels with commercial
cookware. This is a matter of personal choice. As with any cookware,
yours should be in good condition and free from excessive dents on
the bottom to provide maximum performance and convenience.
Because of variations in food density, surface texture and consistency,
some foods may be prepared more successfully using the conventional
bake setting. For this reason, conventional baking is recommended
when preparing baked goods such as custard. The user may find other
foods that are also prepared more consistently in conventional bake. It
is recommended to use this function for single-rack baking.
Note: When using big pots and/or high flames, it is recommended to use
the front burners. There is more room in the front and potential cleanup
at rear of appliance due to staining or discoloration will be minimized.
Convection cooking is a cooking technique which utilizes fan-forced
air to circulate throughout the entire oven cavity creating the optimum
cooking environment. Cooking with convection is intended when
performing multi-rack baking and for heavier foods. Below are some
tips which will allow you to get the best results out of your oven when
cooking with convection.

• As a general rule, to convert conventional recipes to convection
recipes, reduce the temperature by 25°F (10°C) when using a
convection cooking function.
• Cooking times for standard baking and convection baking will be the
same. However, if using convection to cook a single item or smaller
load, then it is possible to have 10-15% reduction in cooking time.
(Remember convection cooking is designed for multi-rack baking or
cooking large loads.)
• If cooking items which require longer than 45 minutes, then it is
possible to see a 10-15% reduction in cooking time.
• A major benefit of convection cooking is the ability to prepare foods
in quantity. The uniform air circulation makes this possible. Foods
that can be prepared on two of three racks at the same time
include: pizza, cakes, cookies, biscuits, muffins, rolls, and frozen
convenience foods.
• For three-rack baking, use any combination of rack positions 2, 3, 4,
and 5. For two-rack baking, use rack positions 2 and 4 or positions 3
and 5. Remember that the racks are numbered from bottom to top.
Rack Positions
Each 30” and 36” oven is equipped with two full extension glide racks
and one standard tilt-proof rack. Each 18” oven is equipped with three
standard tilt-proof racks. All ovens have six rack positions. Position 6 is
the farthest from the oven bottom. Position 1 is the closest to the oven
bottom. The racks can be easily removed and arranged at various
levels. For best results with conventional baking, DO NOT use more
than one rack at a time. It is also recommended, when using two racks,
to bake with the racks in positions 2 and 4 or positions 3 and 5.

BAKE
(Natural Airflow Bake)
To Use CONVECTION BAKE Function
1. Arrange the oven rack in the desired position before turning oven on.
Full power heat is radiated from
the U-shaped bake burners in
the bottom of the oven cavity
and is circulated with natural
airflow. This function is
recommended for single rack
baking. Many cookbooks contain
recipes to be cooked in the
natural airflow bake
conventional manner.
Conventional baking is suitable for dishes that require a high
temperature. Use this setting for baking and casseroles.
VGCC models—Set the oven temperature control knob to desired
temperature and turn on the convection fan switch.
3. Close the door.
Baking Tips
CONVECTION BAKE
Pan Placement Tips
Heat is radiated from the Ushaped bake burners in the
bottom of the oven cavity. The
heated air is circulated by one
motorized fan in the rear of the
oven providing a more even
heat distribution. Multiple rack
use is possible for the largest
baking job. When roasting,
convection bake
cool air is quickly replaced—
searing meats on the outside and retaining more juices and natural
flavor on the inside with less shrinkage. This even circulation of air
equalizes the temperature throughout the oven cavity and eliminates
the hot and cold spots found in conventional ovens.
• When using large (15" x 13") flat pans or trays that cover most of the
rack, rack positions 2 or 3 produce the best results.
• When baking on more than one rack, it is recommended to use the 3rd
and 5th position for more consistent even baking.
• Stagger pans in opposite directions when two racks and several pans
are used in conventional bake. If possible, no pan should be directly
above another.
• Allow 1 to 2 inches of air space around all sides of each pan for
even air circulation.
1. Arrange the oven rack in the desired position before turning
oven on.
2. VGSC models—Set the oven function selector to “BAKE” and the
temperature control knob to desired temperature.
VGCC models—Set the oven temperature control knob to desired
temperature.

3. Close the door.
• Make sure the oven racks are in the desired position before you turn
on the oven.
• DO NOT open the door frequently during baking. Look through the
door window to check doneness whenever possible. If you must open
the door, the best time is during the last quarter of the baking time.
• Bake to the shortest time suggested and check for doneness before
adding more time. For baked goods, a stainless steel knife placed in
the center of the product should come out clean when done.
• Use the pan size and type recommended by the recipe to ensure
best results. Cakes, quick breads, muffins, and cookies should be
baked in shiny, reflective pans for light, golden crusts. Avoid the use
of old, darkened pans. Warped, dented, stainless steel and tin-coated
pans heat unevenly and will not give uniform baking results.

Solving Baking Problems
BROIL (Infrared Broil)
Baking problems can occur for many reasons. Check the chart below
for the causes and remedies for the most common problems. It is
important to remember that the temperature setting and cooking
times you are accustomed to using with your previous oven may vary
slightly from those required with this oven. If you find this to be true,
it is necessary for you to adjust your recipes and cooking times
accordingly.

The top burner operates at full
power. This function is exactly
the same as regular broiling with
the additional benefit of air
circulation by the motorized fan
in the rear of the oven. Smoke is
reduced since the airflow also
reduces peak temperatures on
the food. Use this setting for
broiling thick cuts of meats.

CONVECTION BROIL
(Infrared Convection Broil)
37
Operation
Operation
Common Baking Problems/Remedies
The broil burner at the top of
the oven heats the metal screen
until it glows. Heat radiates from
the GourmetGlo™ infrared
broiler located at the top of the
oven cavity. The distance
between the foods and the broil
elements determines broiling
speed. For “fast” broiling, food
infrared broil
may be as close as 2 inches
(5 cm) to the broil element or on the top rack. “Fast” broiling is best for
meats where rare to medium doneness is desired. Use this setting for
broiling small and average cuts of meat.
Broiling
Broiling
Broiling Instructions
Broiling Tips
Broiling is a dry-heat cooking method using direct or radiant heat.
It is used for small, individualized cuts such as steaks, chops, and
patties. Broiling speed is determined by the distance between the
food and the broil element. Choose the rack position based on
desired results.
Conventional broiling is most successful for cuts of meat 1-2 inches
thick and is also more suitable for flat pieces of meat. Convection
broiling has the advantage of broiling food slightly quicker than
conventional. Convection broiling of meats produces better results,
especially for thick cuts. The meat sears on the outside and retains
more juices and natural flavor inside with less shrinkage.
To Use Broil or Convection Broil
1. Arrange the oven rack in the desired position before turning
broiler on.
2. Center the food on cold broiler pan and grid supplied with your
oven. Place broiler pan in oven.
VGCC models—Set the oven temperature control knob to “Broil”.
Turn on the convection fan switch if you wish to convection broil.
Rack Positions for Broiling
Note: Position 6 is the closest to the broiler and position 1 is the
closest to the oven bottom.
4. Close the door. There is not a detent to hold the door in the open
broil stop position. With open door broiling the broil element does
not cycle on and off. With closed door broiling the broil element
might cycle on and off if an extended broiling time is required. A
built-in smoke "eliminator" in the top of the oven helps reduce
smoke and odors.

3. VGSC models—Set the oven function selector to “Convection Broil”
or “BROIL” and the temperature control knob to “Broil”.
• ALWAYS use a broiler pan and grid for broiling. They are designed
to provide drainage of excess liquid and fat away from the cooking
surface to help prevent splatter, smoke, and fire.
• To keep meat from curling, slit fatty edge.
• Brush chicken and fish with butter several times as they broil to
prevent drying out. To prevent sticking, lightly grease broiler tray.
• Broil on first side for slightly more than half the recommended time,
season, and turn. Season second side just before removing.
• ALWAYS pull rack out to stop position before turning or removing
food.
• Use tongs or a spatula to turn meats. NEVER pierce meat with a
fork, as this allows the juices to escape.
• Remove the broiler pan from the oven when you remove the food.
Drippings will bake onto the pan if it is left in the heated oven after
broiling. While pan is hot, place damp paper towel over grid. Drizzle
with liquid dishwashing detergent and pour water over grid. This will
make cleaning of the pan easier, or the broiler pan can be lined with
aluminum foil to make cleaning easier. Be sure the foil extends up
the side of the pan. Although it is not recommended, the grid can
also be covered with foil. Be sure to slit openings to conform with
the openings in the grid so melted fat can drain through to prevent
spattering, smoking, or the possibility of grease fire.

Type and
Cut of Meat
This oven is designed not only to cook, but also to dehydrate fruits
and vegetables. Warm air is circulated by a motorized fan in the rear
of the oven and over a period of time, the water is removed from
the food by evaporation. Removal of water inhibits growth of
microorganisms and retards the activity of enzymes. It is important to
remember that dehydration does not improve the quality, so only
fresh, top-quality foods should be used.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Cleaning and Maintenance
Any piece of equipment works better and lasts longer when
maintained properly and kept clean. Cooking equipment is no
exception. Your range must be kept clean and maintained properly.
Before cleaning, make sure all controls are in the “OFF” position.
Disconnect power if you are going to clean thoroughly with water.
Note: For stubborn stains, use a non abrasive cleanser such as Bon
Ami™ and a soft brush or soft Scotch Brite™ pad.

• Remove the burner cap and burner head and clean.
Igniter
Burner Caps
The surface burner caps should be routinely removed and cleaned.
ALWAYS clean the burner caps after a spill-over. Keeping the burner
caps clean will prevent improper ignition and uneven flames. To clean,
pull burner cap straight up from the burner base. Wipe off surface
burner caps with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth after each use.
Use a non-abrasive cleanser such as Bon Ami™ and a soft brush or soft
Scotch Brite™ pad for cooked-on foods. Dry thoroughly after cleaning.
For best cleaning and to avoid possible rusting, DO NOT clean in
dishwasher or self-cleaning oven.
The base should be wiped regularly with hot soapy water at the end of
each cooling period. DO NOT use steel wool, abrasive cloths, cleanser,
or powders. To remove encrusted materials, soak the area with a hot
towel to loosen the material, then use a wooden nylon spatula.
DO NOT use a metal knife, spatula, or any other metal tool to scrape
the aluminum base.
• Wipe up any spills which remain on the sealed top surface.
• Replace burner cap, burner head, and grates after drying thoroughly.
Control Panel
DO NOT use any cleaners containing ammonia or abrasives. They
could remove the graphics from the control panel. Use hot, soapy
water and a soft clean cloth.
Oven Surfaces
Several different finishes have been used in your oven.
NEVER USE AMMONIA, STEEL WOOL PADS OR ABRASIVE CLOTHS,
CLEANSERS, OVEN CLEANERS, OR ABRASIVE POWDERS. THEY CAN
PERMANENTLY DAMAGE YOUR OVEN.
VGSC models – Your oven features a self-clean cycle for the oven
interior. See the “Self-Clean Cycle” section for complete instructions.
Control Knobs
MAKE SURE ALL THE CONTROL KNOBS POINT TO THE OFF
POSITION BEFORE REMOVING. Pull the knobs straight off. Wash in
detergent and warm water. Dry completely and replace by pushing
firmly onto stem. DO NOT use any cleaners containing ammonia or
abrasives. They could remove the graphics from the knob.
If ports on burner head are clogged, clean with a straight pin.
DO NOT enlarge or distort the ports. DO NOT use a toothpick to
clean the ports. When replacing burner head, carefully align the 2 tabs
underneath the burner head with the outside edge of burner base.
Make sure the tabs are not aligned with the igniter and the burner cap
is level.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Self-Clean Cycle
Stainless Steel Parts
This oven features an automatic pyrolytic self-cleaning cycle. During
this cycle, the oven reaches elevated temperatures in order to burn-off
soil and deposits. An integral smoke eliminator helps reduce odors
associated with the soil burn-off. A powder ash residue is left in the
bottom of the oven after completion of the self-clean cycle. The door
latch is automatically activated after selecting the self-clean setting.
The latch ensures that the door cannot be opened while the oven
interior is at clean temperatures.
All stainless steel body parts should be wiped regularly with hot soapy
water at the end of each cooling period and with a liquid cleaner
designed for that material when soapy water will not do the job. DO NOT
use steel wool, abrasive cloths, cleansers, or powders. If necessary, scrape
stainless steel to remove encrusted materials, soak the area with hot
towels to loosen the material, then use a wooden or nylon spatula or
scraper. DO NOT use a metal knife, spatula, or any other metal tool to
scrape stainless steel. DO NOT permit citrus or tomato juice to remain
on stainless steel surface, as citric acid will permanently discolor
stainless steel. Wipe up any spills immediately.
Glass Surfaces
Clean with detergent and warm water. Glass cleaner can be used to
remove fingerprints. If using glass cleaner ammonia, make sure that it
does not run down on exterior door surface.
Broiler Pan and Grid
Clean with detergent and hot water. For stubborn spots, use a soapfilled steel wool pad.
Oven Racks
Clean with detergent and hot water. Stubborn spots can be scoured
with a soap-filled steel wool pad.
(on Self-Clean models)
Before starting the Self-Clean cycle:
1. Remove the oven racks, and any other items/utensils from the oven.
The high heat generated during the cleaning cycle can discolor,
warp, and damage these items. DO NOT use foil or liners in the
oven. During the self-clean cycle, foil can burn or melt and damage
the oven surface.
2. Wipe off any large spills from the oven bottom and sides. NEVER
use oven cleaners inside a self-cleaning oven or on raised portions
of the door.
3. Some areas of the oven must be cleaned by hand before the cycle
begins. Soils in these areas will be baked on and very difficult to
clean if not removed first. Clean the door up to the gasket, the door
frame, and up to 2 inches inside the frame with detergent and hot
water. Rinse thoroughly and dry.
WARNING
BURN OR ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD
Make sure all controls are OFF and oven is COOL before cleaning.
Failure to do so can result in burns or electrical shock.
WARNING

DO NOT touch the exterior portions of the oven after self-cleaning
cycle has begun, since some parts become extremely hot to the
touch! During the first few times the self-cleaning feature is used,
there may be some odor and smoking from the curing of the binder in
the high-density insulation used in the oven. When the insulation is
thoroughly cured, this odor will disappear. During subsequent
self-cleaning cycles, you may sense an odor characteristic of high
temperatures. Keep the kitchen well-vented during the
self-cleaning cycle.
