OVEN USE

Aluminum Foil

IMPORTANT: Do not line the oven bottom with any type of foil, liners or cookware because permanent damage will occur to the oven bottom finish.

■ Do not cover entire rack with foil because air must be able to move freely for best cooking results.

To catch spills, place foil on rack below dish. Make sure foil is at least 1 in. (2.5 cm) larger than the dish and that it is turned up at the edges.

Positioning Racks and Bakeware

IMPORTANT: Never place food or bakeware directly on the oven door or bottom.

RACKS

Position racks before turning the oven on. Do not move racks with bakeware on them. Make sure racks are level. To move a rack, pull it out to the stop position, raise the front edge, then lift out. Use the following illustration and chart as a guide.

FOOD

Frozen pies, large roasts, turkeys, angel food cakes

Bundt cakes, most quick breads, yeast breads, casseroles, meats

Cookies, biscuits, muffins, cakes, non-frozen pies

Meat Thermometer

On models without a temperature probe, always rely on a meat thermometer to determine doneness of meat and poultry. The internal temperature, not appearance, is what counts. A meat thermometer is not supplied with this appliance.

Insert the thermometer into the center of the thickest portion of the meat or inner thigh or breast of poultry. The tip of the thermometer should not touch fat, bone or gristle.

After reading the thermometer once, push it into the meat

¹⁄₂ in. (2 cm) more and read again. If the temperature drops, cook the meat or poultry longer.

Check pork and poultry in two or three places.

Oven Vent

1. Upper oven

2. Oven vent

3. Lower oven

The oven vent should not be blocked or covered since it allows the release of hot air and moisture from the oven. Doing so will cause poor air circulation, affecting cooking and cleaning results.

Never set plastics, paper or other items that could melt or burn near the oven vent.

Baking and Roasting

Press START/ENTER.

A preheat time will count down and “PrE°” will appear on the oven display if the actual oven temperature is under 170°F

(77°C).

When the actual oven temperature reaches 170°F (77°C), the timer will continue counting down.The temperature setting can be changed any time after pressing START/ENTER.

When an appropriate temperature is reached, if enabled, one tone will sound.

Press UPPER OFF, LOWER OFF or OFF/CANCEL when finished cooking.

Broiling and Custom Broiling

1. Broil element

2. Bake element

ACCUBAKE® Temperature Management System

The ACCUBAKE system electronically regulates the oven heat levels during preheat and bake to maintain a precise temperature range for optimal cooking results. The bake and broil elements cycle on and off in intervals. The bake element will glow red when cycling on, the broil element will not. This feature is automatically activated when the oven is in use.

If the oven door is opened during baking and roasting, the broil element will turn off immediately and the bake element will turn off in 2 minutes. They will come back on once the door is closed.

To Bake or Roast:

Before baking and roasting, position the racks according to the

“Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section. When roasting, it is not necessary to wait for the oven to preheat before putting food in, unless recommended in the recipe.

1.

On double oven models only, press UPPER OVEN or LOWER

OVEN.

Close oven door. The display will show “door” and the heating elements will not heat if the door is open when baking and roasting.

2.

Press BAKE.

Press the TEMP “up” or “down” arrow pad to enter a temperature other than 350°F (177°C). The bake range can be set between 170°F and 500°F (77°C and 260°C).

1. Broil element

Broiling uses direct radiant heat from the broil element to cook food. During broiling, the broil element cycles on and off in intervals to maintain the oven temperature.

If the oven door is opened during broiling, the broil element will turn off immediately and come back on once the door is closed.

■ Use only the broiler pan and grid provided with the appliance.

It is designed to drain juices and help prevent spatter and smoke.

For proper draining, do not cover the grid with foil. The bottom of the pan may be lined with aluminum foil for easier cleaning.

Trim excess fat to reduce spattering. Slit the remaining fat on the edges to prevent curling.

Pull out oven rack to stop position before turning or removing food. Use tongs to turn food to avoid the loss of juices. Very thin cuts of fish, poultry or meat may not need to be turned.

After broiling, remove the pan from the oven when removing the food. Drippings will bake on the pan if left in the heated oven, making cleaning more difficult.

To Broil:

Before broiling or custom broiling, position the rack according to the Broiling Chart.

Position food on the grid in the broiler pan, then place it in the center of the oven rack with the longest side parallel to the door.

It is not necessary to preheat the oven before putting food in, unless recommended in the recipe.

Close the door.

1.

On double oven models only, press UPPER OVEN or LOWER

OVEN.

2.

Press CUSTOM BROIL.

3.

Press START/ENTER.

The set oven temperature will appear on the oven display until the oven is turned off.

4.

Press UPPER OFF, LOWER OFF or OFF/CANCEL when finished cooking.

9

To Custom Broil:

Changing the temperature when custom broiling allows more precise control when cooking. The lower the temperature, the slower the cooking. Thicker cuts and unevenly shaped pieces of meat, fish and poultry may cook better at lower broiling temperatures.

1.

On double oven models only, press UPPER OVEN or LOWER

OVEN.

2.

Press CUSTOM BROIL.

3.

Press the TEMP “up” or “down” arrow pad to enter a temperature other than 500°F (260°C). The broil range can be set between 170°F and 500°F (77°C and 260°C).

4.

Press START/ENTER.

The set oven temperature will appear on the oven display until the oven is turned off.

5.

Press UPPER OFF, LOWER OFF or OFF/CANCEL when finished cooking.

BROILING CHART

For best results, place food 3 in. (7 cm) or more from the broil element. Times are guidelines only and may need to be adjusted for individual foods and tastes. Recommended rack positions are numbered from the bottom (1) to the top (5). For diagram, see the

“Positioning Racks and Bakeware” section.
