Moist-Dry Slide Control

The Moist-Dry slide control allows you to open or close the vent slots in the door. The MOIST setting holds moisture in, while the

DRY setting allows steam and moisture to escape from the drawer.

NOTE: Condensation may form on inner surfaces. This is normal.

To keep foods moist, slide control to MOIST, closing the vents.

Closing the vents will seal the drawer and keep hot foods soft and moist.

To keep foods crisp, slide control to DRY, opening the vents.

Opening the vents releases moisture from the drawer and keeps hot foods crisp and dry. See the Warming Drawer Temperature

Chart in the “Setting the Controls” section.

Setting the Controls

WARNING

Food Poisoning Hazard

Do not let food sit for more than one hour before or after cooking.

Doing so can result in food poisoning or sickness.

The Indoor/Outdoor Warming Drawer is ideal for keeping hot cooked foods at serving temperature. It is designed to operate properly either indoors or outdoors at temperatures down to

32°F (0°C). If the drawer is operated at temperatures colder than

32°F (0°C), performance may be affected.

Different types of food may be placed in the warming drawer at the same time.

When keeping several types of food hot, use the setting for the highest temperature food in the warming drawer. Place foods requiring the highest temperature on the bottom of the drawer and those foods requiring the lowest temperature on the elevated rack.

For best results, do not hold foods in the warming drawer longer than 1 hour. For smaller quantities or heat-sensitive foods, such as eggs, do not hold longer than 30 minutes.

Food must be cooked and at serving temperature before being placed in the warming drawer. Cover foods with a lid.

Breads, pastries, and fruit pies may be heated from room temperature on the HI setting. Remove food from plastic bags and place in oven-safe container.

Oven-safe serving dishes and dinner plates can be heated while the warming drawer is preheating.

NOTE: To conserve heat, place cookware and positioning rack in the warming drawer before preheating.

To Use:

1. Push in and turn the control knob to the desired food warming setting: Lo (low), between Lo and Med (medium low), Med (medium), between Med and Hi (medium high), or

Hi (high).

NOTE: For best results, meats, seafood, poultry and any foods containing meat, seafood or poultry should be set to medium or higher.

2. Select MOIST or DRY setting.

3. Allow warming drawer to preheat. Recommended minimum preheating times are 5 minutes for Lo, 10 minutes for Med, and 20 minutes for Hi.

4. Push in and turn the control knob to OFF when finished.

WARMING DRAWER TEMPERATURE CHART

Different foods require different settings in order to maintain the ideal serving temperature. Use the following chart as a guide.

You can set the drawer temperature anywhere between Lo and

Hi. For best results, meats, seafood and poultry should be set to medium or higher. Cover food, if desired, to maintain heat and moisture.

When keeping several different types of food hot, set the drawer to the food requiring the highest temperature setting. Place item(s) requiring the highest temperature on the bottom of the drawer and those items requiring the lowest temperature on the rack.
