OPERATION

Adjusting the Oven Temperature

Your new oven may cook differently from the one it replaced. Use your new oven for a few weeks to become more familiar with it before changing the temperature settings. If after familiarizing yourself with the new oven, you still think that it is too hot or too cold, you can adjust the oven temperature yourself.

NOTE

To begin, either raise or lower the thermostat

15 °F (8 °C). Try the oven with the new setting. If the oven still needs adjustment, raise or lower the thermostat again, using the first adjustment as a gauge. For example, if the adjustment was too much, raise or lower the thermostat 10 °F (5 °C).

If the adjustment was not enough, raise or lower the thermostat 20 °F (12 °C). Proceed in this way until the oven is adjusted to your satisfaction.

OPERATION

Using the Proper Cookware

The size and type of cookware will influence the settings needed for the best cooking results. Be sure to follow the recommendations for using proper cookware.

Cookware should have flat bottoms that make good contact with the entire surface heating element. Check for flatness by placing a ruler across the bottom of the cookware. The ruler should touch the cookware across the entire bottom, with no gaps.

Cookware recommendations

Flat bottom and straight sides

• Heavy-gauge pans

Pan sizes that match the amount of food to be prepared and the size of the surface element

Weight of handle does not tilt pan. Pan is well balanced

• Tight-fitting lids

Flat bottom woks

Cookware should not

• have a curved or warped bottom.

• be smaller or larger than the surface burner.

• have a heavy handle that tilts the pan.

• be a wok with a ring stand.

• have loose or broken handles.

• have loose-fitting lids.

NOTE

Do not use pans less than 7 inches in diameter on the front elements.

Do not use foil or foil-type containers. Foil may melt onto the glass. Do not use the cooktop if metal has melted on it. Call an authorized LG

Service Center.

Choosing Cookware

The cookware material determines how evenly and quickly heat is transferred from the surface element to the pan bottom. The most popular materials available are:

Aluminum

- Excellent heat conductor. Some types of food will cause it to darken (anodized aluminum cookware resists staining and pitting). If aluminum pans slide across the ceramic cooktop, they may leave metal marks which will resemble scratches.

Remove these marks immediately.

Copper

- Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily. May leave metal marks on glass-ceramic

(see Aluminum above).

Stainless steel

- Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.

Cast iron

- A poor heat conductor but retains heat very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is reached. Not recommended for use on ceramic cooktops.

Porcelain-enamel on metal

- Heating characteristics will vary depending on base material. Porcelain-enamel coating must be smooth to avoid scratching ceramic cooktops.

Glass

- Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for ceramic cooktop surfaces because it may scratch the glass.

Home Canning Tips

Be sure that the canner is centered over the surface element and is flat on the bottom.

The base must not be more than 1 inch larger than the element. Use of water bath canners with rippled bottoms may extend the time required to bring the water to a boil and may damage the cooktop.

Some canners are designed with smaller bases for use on smooth surfaces.

Use the high heat setting only until the water comes to a boil or pressure is reached in the canner.

Reduce to the lowest heat setting that maintains the boil, or pressure. If the heat is not turned down, the cooktop may be damaged.

Using the Oven

Before Using the Oven

NOTE

• Because the oven temperature cycles, an oven thermometer placed in the oven cavity may not show the same temperature that is set on the oven.

• It is normal for the convection fan to run while preheating during a regular bake cycle.

The convection fan motor may run periodically during a regular bake cycle.

The heat turns off if the door is left open during baking. If the door is left open for longer than

30 seconds during baking, the heat turns off.

The heat turns back on automatically once the door is closed.

Oven Vent

Areas near the vent may become hot during operation and may cause burns. Do not block the vent opening.

Avoid placing plastics near the vent as heat may distort or melt the plastic.

It is normal for steam to be visible when cooking foods with high moisture content.

Oven Vent

Using Oven Racks

The racks have a turned-up back edge that prevents them from being pulled out of the oven cavity.

OPERATION

27

Replacing Racks

1

Place the end of the rack on the support.

2

Tilt the front end up and push the rack in.

CAUTION

• Replace oven racks before turning the oven on to prevent burns.

Do not cover the racks with aluminum foil, or any other material, or place anything on the bottom of the oven. Doing so will result in poor baking and may damage the oven bottom.

• Only arrange oven racks when the oven is cool.

Bake

Bake is used to prepare foods such as pastries, breads and casseroles. The oven can be programmed to bake at any temperature from 170 °F (80 °C) to

550 °F (285 °C). The default temperature is 350 °F

(175 °C).

As the oven preheats, the temperature is displayed and rises in 5-degree increments. Once the oven reaches the set temperature, a tone sounds and the oven light blinks on and off.

4

When cooking is complete, touch

Clear/Off.

5

Remove food from the oven.

NOTE

It is normal for the convection fan to operate periodically throughout a normal bake cycle in the lower oven. This is to ensure even baking results.

Removing Racks

1

Pull the rack straight out until it stops.

2

Lift up the front of the rack and pull it out.

28

OPERATION

Baking Tips

Baking time and temperature will vary depending on the characteristics, size, and shape of the baking pan used.

Check for food doneness at the minimum recipe time.

Use metal bakeware (with or without a nonstick finish), heatproof glass-ceramic, ceramic or other bakeware recommended for oven use.

Dark metal pans or nonstick coatings will cook food faster with more browning. Insulated bakeware will slightly lengthen the cooking time for most foods.

NOTE

The oven bottom has a porcelain-enamel finish.

To make cleaning easier, protect the oven bottom from excessive spillovers by placing a cookie sheet on the rack below the rack you are cooking on. This is particularly important when baking a fruit pie or other foods with a high acid content.

Hot fruit fillings or other foods that are highly acidic may cause pitting and damage to the porcelain-enamel surface and should be wiped up immediately.

Convection Mode

The convection system uses a fan to circulate the heat evenly within the oven. Improved heat distribution allows for even cooking and excellent results while cooking with single or multiple racks.

When cooking has finished or to cancel, touch

Clear/Off

.

NOTE

The oven fan runs while convection baking. The fan stops when the door is open. In some cases, the fan may shut off during a convection bake cycle.

Tips for Convection Baking

Use Convection Bake for faster and more even multiple-rack cooking of pastries, cookies, muffins, biscuits, and breads of all kinds.

Bake cookies and biscuits on pans with no sides or very low sides to allow heated air to circulate around the food. Food baked on pans with a dark finish will cook faster.

• When using Convection Bake with a single rack, place the oven rack in position 3. If cooking on multiple racks, place the oven racks in positions 1 and 3 (for two racks).

• Multiple oven rack cooking may slightly increase cook times for some foods.

Cakes, cookies and muffins have better results when using multiple racks.

The Convection Roast feature is designed to give optimum roasting performance. Convection Roast combines cooking with the convection fan to roast meats and poultry. The heated air circulates around the food from all sides, sealing in juices and flavors.

Foods are crispy brown on the outside while staying moist on the inside. Convection roasting is especially good for large tender cuts of meat, uncovered.

Tips for Convection Roasting

Use a broiler pan and grid when preparing meats for convection roasting. The broiler pan catches grease spills and the grid helps prevent grease splatters.

1

Place the oven rack on the bottom.

2

Place the grid in the broiler pan.

3

Place the broiler pan on the oven rack.

Grid (sold separately)

Broiler pan (sold separately)

CAUTION

• Do not use a broiler pan without a grid.

Do not cover the grid with aluminum foil.

Position food (fat side up) on the grid.

OPERATION

Broil

The Broil function uses intense heat from the upper heating element to cook food. Broiling works best for tender cuts of meat, fish, and thinly cut vegetables.

Some models may feature a hybrid broiler consisting of an inner broiler that utilizes a carbon heating element which provides instantaneous heat, and a traditional outer broiling element. During normal broiler operation, it is normal for either element to cycle off intermittently.

CAUTION

Do not use a broiler pan without a grid. Oil can cause a grease fire.

Do not cover the grid and broiler pan with aluminum foil. Doing so will cause a fire.

Always use a broiler pan and grid for excess fat and grease drainage. This will help to reduce splatter, smoke, and flare-ups.

NOTE

This range is designed for closed-door broiling.

Close the door to set the Broil function. If the door is open, the Broil function cannot be set and

door

appears on the display. Close the door and reset the Broil function. Opening the door turns off the broil burner during broiling.

If the door is opened during broiling, the broil burner turns off after five seconds. The broiler turns back on automatically once the door is closed.

Speed Broil (on some models)

The Speed Broil setting is designed to reduce the amount of time it takes to broil foods. By utilizing the infrared broil element, which provides heat instantaneously, there is no need for preheating.

Smoking

Due to the intense heat associated with broiling, it is normal to experience smoke during the cooking process. This smoke is a natural byproduct of searing and should not cause you to worry. If you are experiencing more smoke than you are comfortable with, use the following tips to reduce the amount of smoke in your oven.

1

Always use a broiler pan. Do not use saute pans or regular baking sheets for safety reasons.

2

The broiler pan should always be thoroughly cleaned and at room temperature at the beginning of cooking.

3

Always run your cooktop ventilation system or vent hood during broiling.

4

Keep the interior of your oven as clean as possible. Leftover debris from prior meals can burn or catch fire.

5

Avoid fatty marinades and sugary glazes. Both of these will increase the amount of smoke you experience. If you would like to use a glaze, apply it at the very end of cooking.

6

If you are experiencing significant smoke with any food item, consider:

• Lowering the broiler to the Lo setting.

Lowering the rack position to cook the food further away from the broiler.

Using the Hi broil setting to achieve the level of searing you desire, and then either switching to the Lo broil setting, or switching to the Bake function.

7

As a rule, fattier cuts of meat and fish will produce more smoke than leaner items.

8

Adhere to the recommended broil settings and cooking guidelines in the chart on the following page whenever possible.

OPERATION

Tips for Broiling

Beef

Steaks and chops should always be allowed to rest for five minutes before being cut into and eaten.

This allows the heat to distribute evenly through the food and creates a more tender and juicy result.

Pieces of meat that are thicker than two inches should be removed from the refrigerator 30 minutes prior to cooking. This will help them cook more quickly and evenly, and will produce less smoke when broiling. Cooking times will likely be shorter than the times indicated in the Broiling Chart.

• For bone-in steaks or chops that have been

frenched

(all meat removed from around the bone), wrap the exposed sections of bone in foil to reduce burning.

Seafood

When broiling skin-on fish, always use the Lo broil setting and always broil the skin side last.

Seafood is best consumed immediately after cooking. Allowing seafood to rest after cooking can cause the food to dry out.

It is a good idea to rub a thin coating of oil on the surface of the broiling pan before cooking to reduce sticking, especially with fish and seafood. You can also use a light coating of non-stick pan spray.

Speed Roast

The Speed Roast feature is designed to quickly roast poultry. The combination of intense heat from the upper heating element and heated air from the back heating element result in crispier food and help to save cooking time. Speed roasting is especially good for medium sized poultry.

NOTE

The recommended cook time is 60-65 minutes for a whole chicken weighing 3.3 lb.

Adjust the cook time according to the weight of the poultry.

Place the oven rack in position 2.

• Speed Roast is designed to reduce the cooking time. There is no need for preheating.

This function is optimized for poultry, so the temperature of Speed Roast cannot be changed.

It is normal for the fan to operate during the
