faster or slower than your previous oven, so the temperature
calibration can be adjusted. It can be changed in Fahrenheit or
A minus sign means the oven will be cooler by the displayed
amount. The absence of a minus sign means the oven will be
warmer by the displayed amount. Use the following chart as a
10°F (6°C)
20°F (11°C)

the fumes given off. Exposure to the fumes may result in death to
certain birds. Always move birds to another closed and well-
ventilated room.

Aluminum Foil

For best cooking results, do not cover entire rack with foil
because air must be able to move freely.
To catch spills, place foil on rack below dish. Make sure foil is
at least ¹⁄₂" (1.3 cm) larger than the dish and that it is turned
up at the edges.
