side (See Figure 4) of the rack and tilt out clockwise . To reinstall insert rear hooks
at back of insert (See figure 5) and lay insert down. Make sure both insert front
hooks snap into rack (See figure 5).

Air Circulation in the Oven
For best air circulation and baking results allow 2-4" (5-10 cm) around

cavity. The hot air must circulate around the pans and cookware in
the oven for even heat to reach around the food.
