use a towel or other bulky cloth.
1. Use Proper Pan Size—
This appliance is
equipped with one or more surface units of different
size. Select utensils having flat bottoms large
enough to cover the surface unit heating element.
The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion
of the heating element to direct contact and may
result in ignition of clothing. Use of oversized
utensils concentrates heat on cooking surface and
can cause damage to range. Proper relationship of
utensil to burner improves efficiency.
2. Never Leave Surface Units Unattended at High Heat
Settings—Boilover causes smoking and greasy
spillovers that may ignite.
3. Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of
glass, ceramic, earthware, or other glazed utensils
are suitable for rangetop service without breaking
due to sudden change in temperature.
4. Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not
Extended Over Adjacent Surface Units—To reduce
the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials,
and spillage due to unintentional contact with the
utensil, the handle of a utensil should be positioned
so that it is turned inward, and does not extend over
adjacent surface units.
GLASS/CERAMIC
COOKING SURFACES
! CAUTION
1. Do Not Cook on Broken Cooktop—If cooktop should
break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may
penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of
electrical shock. Contact a qualified technician
immediately.
2. Clean Cooktop With Caution—If a wet sponge or

Utensil Recommendations
What Should I Consider in Cookware?
SELECT
AVOID
Flat bottomed cookware.
Cookware with rounded or warped
bottoms.
Pans with aluminum disk
bottoms.
Glass, glass-ceramic, enamel
porcelain or cast iron cookware,
canners or pressure cookers.
Heavy gauge metal cookware.
Light gauge metal cookware.
Handles that are secure, that are
not heavy enough to tilt pan.
Cookware with loose or broken
handles.
Proper pan size.
Cookware that is smaller than or
greater than heating element size
by 1 inch.
Flat bottomed wok
Wok with a ringstand on bottom
Flat Pan Test
For best cooking results, use a pan
with a flat bottom. To determine if
pan has a flat bottom.
1. Rotate a ruler along bottom of
pan. If pan is not flat, gaps
between bottom of pan and edge
of ruler can be seen.
2. A small groove or mark on a pan
does not affect cooking times.
However, if a pan has a gap,
formed rings, or an uneven
bottom, it does not cook
efficiently and in some cases
may not boil liquid.
Can I can?
COOKWARE
MATERIAL
Canning is not recommended with any
of the Amana smoothtop ranges or
cooktops due to the intense heat and
large cookware required to can.
USES
Aluminum
Heats and cools quickly. Use for frying, braising,
and roasting.
Stainless Steel
Heats and cools at moderate rate. Use for soups,
sauces, vegetables, general cooking.
Copper Clad /
Tin Lined
Heats and cools quickly. Use for gourmet cooking,
wine sauces, egg dishes.
The heat generated by the canning
cookware overheats both the elements
and the smoothtop of the range. This
may cause the smoothtop to crack,
cause failure of the heating elements,
and may cause overheating of the
surrounding walls.
Damage incurred by canning, or
attempting to can, using the smoothtop
cooktop is not covered under warranty.

Before Using the Oven
Oven Cooking Methods
This oven provides conventional Baking, Broiling, and EvenAir Plus™
Convection Cooking. During EvenAir Plus™ Convection Cooking, the oven
fan in the rear of the oven cavity circulates air while the oven cooks. The
circulating air provides even browning and faster baking times.
Bake
Bake
Broil (upper) and bake (lower) elements operate during bake. Broil
element is only used to heat oven quickly and brown top of food—
this element will cycle on and off during the baking period. Bake can
be used to cook foods which are normally baked. Oven should be
preheated.
Broil
Broil (upper) element operates during broil. Broil can be used to cook foods
which are normally broiled. Preheating is not required when using broil. All
foods should be turned at least once except fish, which does not need to
be turned.
Broil

Custom Features
¸
12-hour automatic cancel
This safety feature turns off the oven if it has been left on for over 12 hours.
To prevent the oven from shutting off after 12 hours of use, simply press any
option. Any time a pad is touched, 12-hour automatic cancel is reset.
Child lockout
B
This safety feature prevents children from accidentally programming oven by
disabling electronic oven control. It is also useful when cleaning the oven
control by preventing accidental programming. Press and hold BAKE and
CLOCK pads for approximately 5 seconds. OFF displays where the
temperature normally appears. To reactivate control, press and hold BAKE
and CLOCK pads for approximately 5 seconds on the oven control. Child
lockout must be reset after a power failure.
F-Code
Service codes and tones
Electronic oven control is equipped with a self-diagnostic system.
Self-diagnostic system alerts you if there is an error or problem with the unit. If
electronic range control sounds a series of short, rapid beeps for over 16
seconds and displays an F-code, record the F-code shown. Some F-codes
can be cleared by touching OVEN CANCEL or disconnecting power to the
range. If the code continues to reoccur disconnect electrical supply to range
and contact an Amana authorized servicer.
Oven temperature control adjustment
Your new range is calibrated at the factory for temperature. Due to individual
variances and preferences, it may be necessary to adjust individual ovens
once they have been installed.
When first using the oven, follow recipe times and temperatures. Before
adjusting oven baking temperature, test a recipe by setting oven temperature
higher or lower than the suggested temperature. The baking results should
help you to decide how much of a temperature adjustment is needed.
An accurate digital thermometer is necessary to calibrate oven. Store
purchased oven thermometers do not accurately measure oven temperature.
Oven temperature can be increased or decreased 35°F. To avoid over adjusting
oven, move temperature 5°F each time.
NOTE: Remove aluminum foil from oven—it will alter oven performance.
Check for blocked heat vents. If it still appears the oven is not
performing as expected, a calibration may be done.

Baking Guidelines
Remember when baking with a new oven temperatures vary from oven to oven. Store-bought thermometers are
generally not accurate and cannot be used to evaluate oven temperatures. A general rule with a convection bake cycle
is to reduce your temperature by 25°F. Ingredients should be at ambient temperature prior to baking.
Hints for Cookies,
•
•
Shiny, flat cookie sheets should
be used. Avoid cookie pans with
high sides—this will cause
uneven browning on the top.
Cookie sheet should not touch
the sides of the oven or door.
Cakes,
•
•
Determine pan size from recipe
directions. Shiny pans work best
for cakes.
Cake baked in too large a pan
will be thin and dry. Too small a
pan results in undercooked or
unevenly cooked cake and batter
may spill.
Pies
•
•
Pies should be baked in dark or
dull pans to increase browning.
Frozen pies should be heated on
an aluminum cookie sheet.

Bake Pan Placement
• Keep pans and baking sheets 2 inches
from oven walls.
• Stagger pans placed on different racks so
one is not directly over the other.
Convection Pan Placement
Baking pans and cookie sheets should not
touch side or rear walls of oven. If pans are
placed on different racks, they can be placed
directly over each other. Convection cooking
circulates air around oven providing even
browning on all rack positions. When using
convection, oven can be loaded on all racks
with excellent cooking results.

Test your cakes for doneness
While they are still in the oven. Because
of variances across individual ovens, it
is best to test for the proper consistency
rather than solely relying on time and
visual appearance as an indicator.
It may not be the oven
Cake problems may be in the mixing of
the batter. Overbeating can cause cake
structure to break down and excessive
shrinkage of the cake. Underbeating
can result in lumpy cakes that may not
be cooked thoroughly. All ingredients
should be at room temperature—not
out of the refrigerator. Make sure to
follow the recipes directions for how
long the batter should be mixed and
recommended times.
Stuck cake?
Allow cake to cool in cake pan on a
rack for 10 minutes before removing.
Larger cakes (over 14 inches in
diameter) may take 15 minutes. If the
cake has cooled too long, reheat in the
oven at 250°F for a few minutes.

Meat Basics
While cooking has always been a talent, it is now becoming a science, also. Amana provides this information as a
guide to aid in preparation. For specific questions regarding meat preparation, handling, or storage contact
USDA Meat & Poultry Hotline at (800) 535-4555.
Handling Hints
Cooking Tips
Storage Safety
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
When shopping, put meat in its
own separate plastic sack to
keep drips off other foods.
Defrost frozen meats in
refrigerator, not at room
temperature.
Keep meat cool and covered until
it is time to cook.
Wash hands with warm soapy
water before and after handling
meat or raw egg.
Thoroughly wash any surface or
utensil raw meat or egg touched.
Do not put cooked meat on the
same plate that held raw meat.
•
•
•
•
Marinate meat in the refrigerator.
Throw out excess marinade that
came into contact with meat.
Use an oven-proof meat
thermometer.
Cook meat to internal
temperature recommended
by USDA.
When reheating foods, heat
to an internal temperature of
at least 165 °F.
While cooking meats, turn over
at least once.

•
Tenderizing
Using a Meat Thermometer
When using a meat thermometer, remember to insert it at a slight angle, in
the thickest part of the meat, away from fat and bone. The meat should be
removed from oven when 5°F below the desired final temperature. While the
meat sits before carving, it will continue to cook internally, raising the last 5°F
by itself.
A meat thermometer can
•
•
•
Once carved, refrigerate unused
portion immediately.
Keep hot foods hot and cold
foods cold when serving meals.
Separate cooked foods into
small portions for fast cooling.
Do not store cooked ground
meats or meals containing
ground meats for longer than
3 to 4 days in the refrigerator.
Do not allow cooked or uncooked
meat juices to come into contact
with ready-to-eat foods such as
fruits or vegetables.
Take the guesswork out of cooking to a desired ‘doneness’.
Help reduce the risk of foodborne illness.
Oven-safe Thermometer
• Inserted before the meat is placed in the oven, this thermometer stays
with the meat while it cooks.
• The internal temperature will rise slowly as the meat cooks.
Instant-read Thermometer
• Not oven safe, these thermometers are placed in the meat when it is
removed from the oven.
• While times may vary, an accurate temperature is normally displayed
within one to two minutes.
• When using an instant-read, remember to clean the thermometer stem
with warm, soapy water between readings.
18
Braising is only one way to tenderize
less tender cuts. Before cooking, you
may pound, cube, marinate, or use
commercially prepared meat tenderizers.
You may then use a dry method to cook
the meat.
•
•
•
•
Marinades are acidic liquids such
as wine, citrus, or vinegar.
Marinades soften meat fibers but
only penetrate about one-fourth of
an inch into the interior of the
meat. Do not marinate meat for
longer than 24 hours.
Pounding with a heavy meat mallet
breaks down the connective tissue
to tenderize meat.
Cubing breaks down the structure
more than pounding. Cubing is
done at the meat counter.
Commercial tenderizers are
primarily enzymes that work on the
outer fourth inch on a meat cut.
Make sure to follow the
manufacturer’s directions.

Broiling Guidelines
Broiling is a dry heat cooking method that allows a restaurant quality
charbroiled flavor. Meat is exposed directly to the heating element at high
temperatures.
1. Place meat on rack in broiler pan, with the surface of cuts the specified
distance from the heating element (specified below).
2. Broil for half the recommended time, or until the surface is browned.
3. Turn meat and continue broiling to desired internal temperature.
4. Season, if desired.

Roasting Guidelines
Tender cuts such as rib and loin cuts are best cooked by dry heat methods,
such as roasting. When using convection to roast, meat may roast more
quickly. To roast:
1. Heat oven to desired temperature.
2. Place roast directly from refrigerator fat side up in a shallow roasting pan.
3. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is centered in thickest part of
roast. Make sure thermometer does not rest in fat or on bone.
4. Remove roast 5°F below desired degree of finished internal temperature.
5. Transfer roast to carving board and tent loosely with aluminum foil for
approximately 15 minutes.

Braising Guidelines
Less tender cuts such as those from the round, chuck, brisket and shank
require moist cooking. A longer cooking time at lower temperatures with
moisture helps soften the meat. If using the convection element, less time
may be required to braise the meat.
1. Brown meat with a small amount of oil in heavy pan.
2. Pour off excessive drippings, season, if desired.
3. Add small amount of liquid (1/2 to 2 cups) and cover tightly.
• Simmer gently over low heat on top of the range or in a 325°F oven,
until meat is fork tender.

Drain fat, cool pan and grid slightly. (Do not stand soiled pan and grid in oven to cool.) Sprinkle with soap. Fill
the pan with warm water. Let pan and grid stand for a few minutes.
Control knobs
Pull off knobs. Wash gently with mild soap and water but do not soak. Dry and return knobs to oven, making
sure to match flat area on the knob to the flat area on the shaft.
Outside finish
Wash all glass with cloth dampened in soapy water. Rinse and polish with a dry cloth. If knobs are removed, do
not allow water to run down inside surface while cleaning.
For stainless steel models, use warm soapy water or a commercially available stainless steel cleaner designed
for kitchen appliance use. DO NOT use steel wool, abrasive powders or liquids, or a citrus based cleaner.
Damage to finish of outside of range due to improper cleaning is not covered by warranty.
Oven racks
For heavy soil, place oven racks in large plastic bag with ammonia and water in cup. Seal tightly and allow to
stand overnight. Wash and rinse, dry thoroughly.

For heavy soil, clean by hand and rinse thoroughly. Remove drawer for ease in cleaning. Be sure drawer is dry
before replacing.

Care and Cleaning (cont'd)
Cleaning Stainless Steel (Some models)
Can I use liquid cleaners
on my stainless steel?
Just because a cleaner is a liquid
does not mean it is
nonabrasive. Many liquid cleansers
designed to be gentle on tile and
smoothtop ranges still damage stainless
steel. Cosmetic damage from using
non-recommended products is not
covered under warranty.
Citric Acid
To prevent damage to the
finish of your stainless
steel range, do not allow
mustard, tomato juice, marinara
sauce, or other citrus based sauces
or products to remain on stainless
steel surface. Citric acid permanently
discolors stainless steel.
Stainless steel ranges have been factory finished for high shine and luster.
To maintain this quality appearance:
DO USE:
• Warm soapy water for routine
cleaning on a cool range.
• Dry with soft, clean cloth.
• For heavy soil, ONLY a stainless
steel cleaner designed for
kitchen appliance use.
DO NOT USE:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Abrasive powders or liquids
Citrus based cleaners
Ammonia
Steel wool pads
Abrasive cloths,
Oven cleansers,
Acidic or vinegar based cleaners
Damage to stainless steel finish due to improper use of cleaning
products, or using non-recommended cleaning products, is not covered
under warranty. For Amana recommended products, call our Consumer
Affairs division at (800) 843-0304.
Caring for the smoothtop
For routine cleaning, allow top to cool before cleansing. Wash surface with a dampened cloth and smoothtop cleaner
conditioner. Use another clean damp paper towel to wipe off the cleaner. Use a dry paper towel, buff the smoothtop to
make sure all the cleaner conditioner is removed. The smoothtop cleaner conditioner provides a thin layer of protective
polish that helps prevent scratching. Do not use a harsh cleanser or steel wool pad. For specific problems, see below.
PROBLEM
CAUSE
REMOVAL
Brown streaks
and specks
Cleaning with sponge or cloth containing soiled
detergent water.
Normal cleansing (provided above).
Blackened, burnt
on spots
Spatters or spillovers on a hot cooking area or
accidental melting of plastic like a bread bag.
Clean area with smoothtop cleaner conditioner with
clean damp paper towel, nonabrasive nylon pad, or
scouring brush.
If spot is not removed, on cool cooktop carefully scrape
area with a safety scraper held at a 30-degree angle.
Fine brown gray
lines, fine
scratches or
abrasions
Course particles, like salt, become embedded in top
if trapped under pan. Using abrasive cleaning
materials. Scratches from rough ceramic, glass, or
ceramic coated cookware.
Fine scratches are not removable but can be minimized
by daily use of smoothtop cleaner conditioner.
Smearing or
streaking
Using too much smoothtop cleaner conditioner or
using a soiled dish cloth.
Follow label instructions carefully. See Routine
Cleaning, above.
Metal or
silver/gray marks
Sliding or scraping metal utensils across top.
Remove marks before top is used again. If marks are
not removed by normal cleaning, use a safety scraper at
a 30° angle and cooktop cleaner conditioner to carefully
scrape off the mark.
Pitting or flaking
Boilovers of sugar syrup on a hot smoothtop can
cause pitting if not removed immediately.
Turn control to LOW setting. Wipe up excess spill with
dry cloth. Allow top to cool and carefully scrape area
with a safety scraper held at a 30-degree angle.
Condensation from cooking can cause minerals
found in water and acids in food to drip onto
smoothtop and cause gray deposits. Spots are often
so thin they appear to be in or under smoothtop.
Mix smoothtop cleaner conditioner with water and apply
thick paste to stained area. Scrub vigorously. If stain is
not removed, reapply cleaner and repeat process
OR
make sure the surface is cool and put a small amount of
white vinegar on the spot and let it sit a few minutes.
Use a nonabrasive nylon pad and gently rub the spot.
Wipe off any excess with a damp paper towel, then dry.
Hard water spots
