Arranging Oven Racks

ALWAYS ARRANGE OVEN RACKS WHEN THE OVEN IS COOL (PRIOR TO OPERATING THE OVEN). Always use
oven mitts when the oven is hot.

Always use pot holders or
oven mitts when adjusting the oven racks.
Wait until the oven has completely cooled if
possible. Oven racks may be HOT and may
cause burns.
Your appliance may be equipped with one or
more of the oven rack types shown; Flat
Handle Oven Rack (Figure 2) and Flat Oven
Half Rack (Figure 3).
The Flat Half Rack has a removable insert
that can provide extra space for larger food
items. The right half rack portion may still be used for other food items like a
casserole dish (See Figure 3). To remove the insert, squeeze on the left front insert
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).
Do not use cookware that extends beyond the edge of the Flat Half Rack. For best
results, allow 2 inches between the pan placed on the rack and oven side or rear
walls.

Air Circulation in the Oven

For best air circulation and baking results allow 2-4" (5-10 cm) around
the cookware for proper air circulation and be sure pans and cookware
do not touch each other, the oven door, sides or back of the oven
cavity. The hot air must circulate around the pans and cookware in
the oven for even heat to reach around the food.
