SPECIAL CORD SET INSTRUCTIONS
FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY
NOT INTENDED
FOR COMMERCIAL USE
INTRODUCTION
The beauty of your new Cuisinart® Convection Toaster Oven Broiler is that it
can do so much while taking up so little space on your kitchen counter. Just
plug it in and follow the easy instructions to bake a chicken, toast bagels,
broil salmon steaks, heat up a pizza, or just keep dinner warm until you’re
ready to eat. For more inspiration, check out the recipes in the back of the
book. Bon appetit!
A short power supply cord is provided to reduce the risks resulting from
becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
Longer extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised
in their use.
If a long extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating of the
extension cord must be at least as great as the electrical rating of the
appliance, and the longer cord should be arranged so that it will not
drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be tripped over or
pulled on by children or pets.
NOTICE
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other).
As a safety feature, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way.
If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does
not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this
safety feature.

BEFORE THE FIRST USE
USE AND CARE
Place your oven on a flat surface.
Before using your oven, move it 2 to 4" (5 to 10 cm) away from the wall or
from any objects on the countertop. Do not use on heat-sensitive surface.
OBJECTS SHOULD NOT BE STORED ON THE TOP OF THE OVEN. IF
THEY ARE, REMOVE ALL OBJECTS BEFORE YOU TURN ON YOUR
OVEN. THE EXTERIOR WALLS GET VERY HOT WHEN IN USE. KEEP
OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
Unwind the power cord. Check that the crumb tray is in place and that there
is nothing in the oven. Plug power cord into the wall outlet.
Broil
Note: When broiling, add approximately 1⁄4 cup (50 ml) of water to the bottom of the drip tray to reduce sizzling and splattering. Place the broiling rack
in the drip tray. The oven rack can be turned up or down depending on the
thickness of the food being broiled. In most cases the oven rack should be in
the higher position (position C – see rack position diagram on page 5).
To broil, set temperature and function dials to broil. Turn timer dial to desired
time. To set the timer for less than 10 minutes, turn the timer past the 10minute mark and then turn it back to desired time. Preheat oven for five minutes with door closed. After the five-minute preheat period, place the broiling
pan in the oven. Always leave door ajar when broiling.
To stop broil operation, turn timer dial to off position.
Note: Never use glass oven dishes to broil.
Bake
To bake, turn the temperature dial to the desired temperature, turn
function dial to bake position and turn timer dial to desired time. The oven
indicator light will turn on. The timer can be set for up to 30 minutes. To set
timer for less than 10 minutes, turn the timer past the 10-minute mark and
then turn it back to desired time. At the end of the cooking time a bell will
ring once and the oven will turn off automatically. If you select always "On"
you will need to turn off the oven manually by turning the timer dial to the
"Off" position. Preheat oven for five to ten minutes (time will vary depending
upon desired temperature); then begin to bake.
GENERAL GUIDELINES
Baking: Baking function can be used as you would normally use your
kitchen oven for roasting meats including chicken, or baking cakes,
cookies and more.
Convection Bake: Convection baking/roasting uses a fan to circulate heated
air around food as it cooks. For best results use cookie sheets with no sides
and baking dishes and roasting pans with very low sides to let maximum airflow reach food. For the same reason, do not cover foods while cooking.
Most baking recipes recommend reducing temperatures by 25°F (5°C) when
using the convection feature. Always check doneness 10 minutes before
suggested cooking time.
Broiling: Broiling function can be used for beef, chicken, pork, fish and
more. It also can be used to top-brown casseroles and gratins. Caution:
Aluminum foil is not recommended for covering the broiling rack. If covered,
the foil prevents the fat from dripping into the drip tray. Grease will accumulate on the foil surface and may catch fire. If you choose to use foil to cover
the drip tray/baking pan, be sure foil is tucked neatly around the pan and
does not touch the wall or heating elements.
Toasting: Always have the rack in rack position B, as indicated in the
diagram on page 5, for even toasting. Always position your item/items in the
middle of the rack.
WARNING: Placing the rack in the bottom position or in the top position
with the rack upward while toasting may result in a fire. Refer to rack
position diagram for proper use.
Turning off the toaster oven broiler: Turn the timer dial to Off.
The indicator light will turn off.
Convection Bake
To use convection baking/roasting, turn the temperature dial to the desired
temperature, turn function dial to convection bake position and turn timer
dial to desired time. The oven indicator light will turn on. The timer can be
set for up to 30 minutes. To set the timer for less than 10 minutes, turn the
timer past the 10-minute mark and then turn it back to desired time. At the
end of the cooking time, a bell will ring once and the oven will turn off automatically. If you select always "On", you will need to turn off the oven manually by turning the timer to the "Off" position. Preheat oven for five to ten
minutes (time will vary depending upon desired temperature); then begin to
convection bake or roast.
4
Most baking recipes recommend reducing temperatures by 25°F (5°C) when
using the convection feature. Always check 10 minutes before suggested
cooking time.
Warm
To keep food warm, turn the temperature dial to 200˚ F (95° C); turn the function dial to warm position and set the timer dial to the desired time. The timer
can be set for up to 30 minutes. The oven indicator light will turn on. Preheat
oven for five minutes. Place food on the wire rack or in the baking pan. When
warming, we recommend placing oven rack in the "B" position.
(see rack position diagram below).
Toast
To toast, make sure the oven is in position B, as indicated in
the diagram on this page. If toasting two items, centre them in the middle of
the rack. Four items should be evenly spaced – two in front, two in back.
Six items should be evenly spaced – three in front, three in back. Close the
glass door.
Shade Selection
Turn temperature dial to broil/toast 500˚ F (260°C). Set function dial to bake/
toast. Turn the timer dial to desired shade setting from light to dark within the
marked settings on this dial. To set the timer for less than 10 minutes, turn
the timer past the 10-minute mark and then turn back to desired time. This
will turn on the toaster oven broiler and the oven indicator light will turn on.
Stop Toasting
When the toasting cycle is finished, the oven will ring once and turn off. If
you wish to stop the toasting cycle before it is finished, simply turn the timer
dial to Off. The toaster oven broiler will cancel your toast cycle.
Important Notes on Toasting
The oven rack must be in position B as indicated in the diagram
on this page.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Always allow the oven to cool completely before cleaning.
1. Always unplug the oven from the electrical outlet.
2. Do not use abrasive cleansers, as they will damage the finish. Simply
wipe the exterior with a clean damp cloth and dry thoroughly. Apply the
cleansing agent to a cloth, not to the toaster oven, before cleaning.
5
3. To clean interior walls, use a damp cloth and a mild liquid soap solution
or a spray solution on a sponge. Never use harsh abrasives or corrosive
products. These could damage the oven surface. Never use Brillo pads,
etc. on interior of oven.
4. To remove crumbs, slide out the crumb tray and discard crumbs. Wipe
clean and replace. Crumb tray is dishwasher safe. To remove baked-on
grease, soak the tray in hot sudsy water or use nonabrasive cleaners.
Never operate the oven without the crumb tray in place.
5. Oven rack, broiling rack and drip tray are dishwasher safe. If heavily
soiled, soak in hot sudsy water or use a nylon scouring pad or nylon
brush. Dry thoroughly after washing.
6. Never wrap the cord around the outside of the oven. Use the cord
storage cleats on the back of the oven.
IMPORTANT
After cooking greasy foods and after your oven has cooled, always clean top
interior of oven. If this is done on a regular basis, your oven will perform like
new. Removing the grease will help to keep toasting consistent, cycle after
cycle.

1½
recipe pizza dough (page 23)
tablespoon (15 ml) extra virgin olive oil
ounces (30-43 g) (about 4 to 6 slices) prosciutto, halved
medium garlic cloves, finely chopped, divided
cup (250 ml) halved grape tomatoes
cups (500 ml) packed arugula
cups (375 ml) ricotta
½
½
cup (125 ml) grated Parmesan (about 2 ounces [60 g])
pinch sea or kosher salt
teaspoon (2 ml) freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the Cuisinart® Convection Toaster Oven Broiler to 425°F (220°C) on
the bake setting with the rack in position A.
Roll out dough into a 12-inch (30 cm) circle.* Brush the outer edge of the
dough with olive oil. Bake in preheated oven for about 6 to 8 minutes, or
until dough is lightly golden.
While dough is baking, preheat a medium skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the prosciutto. Sauté until crisp; remove and reserve.
Add 2 of the garlic cloves to the hot pan. Sauté until fragrant, and then add
the tomatoes. When tomatoes just begin to soften, stir in the arugula, about
¼ cup at a time. Cook until the arugula is wilted; remove and reserve.
In a medium-sized bowl, mix the ricotta, Parmesan, remaining garlic, salt
and pepper until well combined. Reserve.
Spread the ricotta mixture evenly over the par-baked pizza dough. Top the
ricotta with the arugula mixture and then finish with the prosciutto. Bake
pizza in preheated oven for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until the dough is
nicely browned and the cheese is bubbling on top.
Remove the pizza from the oven. Cut into slices and serve immediately.
*Using a pizza mesh makes forming the perfect pizza much easier. If you
have one, it is advisable to spray it with nonstick cooking spray before
stretching dough.

using the same 4mm-slicing disc. Lay the slices on a towel-lined plate;
sprinkle with the remaining salt. Reserve until ready to use.
Once the tart shell is baked, prepare the tart. Arrange the vegetables in the
tart by tightly overlapping them in rows (start with one vegetable, allowing
each row to be a different vegetable). Drizzle with the remaining tablespoon
of olive oil and sprinkle with the remaining pepper. Dot the tart with peasized pieces of the goat cheese (use more or less, according to taste).
Place the tart in the preheated oven. Bake 20 minutes or until crust is fully
browned and the vegetables are tender and golden. Remove from oven and
sprinkle with the sliced basil.

Roll and shape the brisée into a 12x4-inch (30 x 10 cm) rectangle. Fold up
the edges to ¼-inch (0.6 cm) high. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
While dough is chilling, prepare the vegetables. Preheat the Cuisinart®
Convection Toaster Oven Broiler to 425°F (220°C) with the rack in the
position B. Line the baking tray with aluminum foil.
Using a Cuisinart® food processor fitted with the 4mm slicing disc, slice the
zucchini and onions. In a medium bowl, toss the sliced vegetables with
3 tablespoons (45 ml) of the olive oil and ¼ teaspoon (1 ml) each of the salt
and pepper. Arrange in a single layer on the prepared baking tray. Roast for
about 20 minutes, or until vegetables begin to brown and soften.
Reduce the temperature to 350°F (180°C) and move the rack to position A.
Remove the tart shell from the refrigerator. Using a fork, prick the dough
evenly all over but make sure not to go entirely through the dough. Line the
shell with parchment and weigh down with dried beans or rice. Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until the dough under the parchment
is no longer wet. Remove the beans/rice and parchment and sprinkle with
the Parmesan. Return to oven and continue baking until the shell is golden
brown, an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Reserve.

Preheat a Cuisinart® Convection Toaster Oven Broiler to 400°F (200°C) on

Reduce oven temperature to 350°F (180°C) on the convection bake setting
and move the rack to position A.
Roll out the dough into a 10-inch (25 cm) disc that is about 1/8-inch (0.3 cm)
thick. Fit into an ungreased fluted tart pan. Chill in refrigerator for about 20
minutes. Using a fork, prick the dough evenly all over but make sure not to
go entirely through the dough. Line the shell with parchment and weigh
down with dried beans or rice. Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until the dough underneath the parchment is no longer wet.
Remove the beans/rice and parchment and continue baking until the shell
is golden brown. Remove and reserve.
While the shell is baking, add the sugar, water, corn syrup and salt to a
heavy-bottomed, medium saucepan. Wipe down with inside walls of the
pan with a wet pastry brush to be sure that there are no sugar granules or
water droplets in the pan – if the walls of the pan are not dry, it will hinder
the quality of the caramel.

Cook the sugar mixture until it turns to an amber color. Once it achieves
that color, take off from heat and slowly stir in the cream (note: the mixture
will bubble quite a bit so it is important to do this step slowly and off the
heat). Then stir in the toasted walnuts.
Add the cold water to the yeast mixture. With the motor running, slowly
pour the liquid yeast mixture through the feed tube. Process until a dough
ball forms. Continue to let the machine run for an additional minute to
knead. Dough will be slightly sticky.
While caramel is cooking, spread the raspberry jam on the cooled tart shell.
Pour the caramel-walnut mixture on top of the raspberry layer.
Lightly dust a sealable plastic bag with flour. Dust dough with flour. Place
the dough into the floured bag; squeeze out all of the air and seal. Let rise
in a warm place for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Place the chocolate in a bowl over a pot of simmering water. Once the
chocolate is almost fully melted, remove from heat and stir to cool to room
temperature. Drizzle chocolate over the caramel nut tart. Chill in refrigerator
for 3 hours, or over night.
