Warming Cookware

Use only cookware approved for oven use. Follow the cookware manufacturer’s instructions.

Positioning Racks and Pans

Positioning Rack

The 2 racks accompanying your warming drawer will fit from front to back or side to side.

NOTE: The warming drawer must be fully opened when placing or removing racks.

Each rack raises an oven-safe container 1 ¹⁄₈" (2.86 cm) from the bottom of the drawer.

When using serving pans, make sure the pan support rails are properly installed in the locator notch before inserting pans.




A. Position 1 pan support rail locator notch

B. Position 2 pan support rail locator notch

C. Position 3 pan support rail locator notch

Keep the number of times the drawer is opened to a minimum in order to maintain set temperature in the warming drawer.

Optional Pans (accessory)

The warming drawer includes 2 pan support rails designed to hold a variety of serving pan sizes. Pan sizes that can be used are

1/6, 1/9, 1/3, 1/2, and 2/3. A full size serving pan can be placed across the width of the 27" (68.6 cm) and 30" (76.2 cm) warming drawer.

1/2 and 1/3 size pans may be purchased from the KitchenAid ®

Customer eXperience Center. See the “Assistance or Service” section to order.

Other size serving pans can be purchased at various retailers and restaurant supply stores.

Please refer to the following chart to determine the correct positioning of the pan support rails for each of the pan sizes.

Proofing Bread

Proofing bread prepares dough for baking by activating the yeast. Check dough periodically for progress.

To Proof:

1. Cover dough with lightly oiled waxed paper and place temperature safe bowl(s) on rack.

2. Set control knob to PROOF setting.

3. Place vent on MOIST setting.

4. Verify doneness by pressing 2 fingers ¹⁄₂" (1.3 cm) into dough.

If indentation remains, the dough is ready.

For second proofing of dough, repeat steps 1-4.

Slow Cook Function


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 SLOW COOK function in the warming drawer cooks food slowly at a low temperature over a long period of time, similar to a countertop slow cooker.

When the warming drawer is installed outdoors, the SLOW

COOK function should not be used when the temperature is below 32°F (0°C).

There are 2 settings: Hi and Lo. Guidelines for cooking times are

4 to 5 hours for Hi and 8 to 10 hours for Lo. Smaller quantities of food may require less time, while larger quantities may require more time.

When slow cooking, use serving pans (available for purchase) or oven-safe cookware. To order serving pans, see the “Assistance or Service” section.

Before slow cooking, thaw frozen foods completely.

IMPORTANT: Brown roasts thoroughly before starting to slow cook.
