Positioning Racks and Bakeware

IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the porcelain
finish, do not place food or bakeware directly on the oven door or
bottom.
RACKS
Position racks before turning on the oven.
Do not move racks with bakeware on them.
Make sure racks are level.
For best performance, cook on one rack. Place the rack so the
top of food will be centered in the oven. To move a rack, pull it
out to the stop position, raise the front edge, then lift out.
FOOD
Cookies, layer cakes, biscuits
Quick bread, angel food, bundt
cakes, pies, pizza
Muffins, cupcakes, brownies
Large roasts or poultry
Casseroles

BAKEWARE

2" (5 cm) of space around bakeware and oven walls. Use the

vent will cause poor air circulation, affecting cooking and
cleaning results. Do not set plastics, paper or other items that
could melt or burn near the oven vent.
