SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Convection baking enables you to obtain the best results
when baking with multiple pans and racks. The oven can be
programmed for convection baking at any temperature
between 170°F to 550°F. The convection function uses a
fan to circulate the oven heat uniformly and continuously
around the oven
tion allows for fast, even cooking and browning results.
Benefits of convection cooking:
Multiple rack baking.
Some foods may cook faster, saving time and energy.
Convection baking tips:
Because most food items will cook faster and more
evenly with the convection feature, it is advisable to
reduce recipe's recommended temperature by 25° for
best results. Follow the recipe's instructions using the
minimum recommended cook time.
Fully preheat the oven before baking items like cookies,
cakes, biscuits, and breads. For single rack baking,
position the rack so that food is in the center of the
If your recipe cooking temperature has already been
converted for convection baking, there is no need to
reduce your oven temperature. If not, see
on temperature conversion.
When baking cakes using two oven racks, place Glide
rack in position 4 with the flat rack in position 1. (See
For cookies on multiple racks place sheets on rack
positions 3 with flat rack, and 5 with glide rack.
When baking using two oven racks, position cookware
as shown in
12. Allow at least 2 inches (5 cm) of
space between cookware for proper air circulation.
Dark or dull bakeware absorbs more heat than shiny
bakeware. It may be necessary to reduce oven temper-
ature and cook time to prevent overbrowning of some
foods. Dark bakeware is recommended for pies. Shiny
bakeware is recommended for cakes, cookies, and
Do not open oven door too often. Doing so reduces
oven temperature and may extend cooking time.
Most baked goods (except cakes) should be baked on
pans with no sides or low sides to allow air to circulate.

Setting Convection Bake
To set the oven for convection bake and temperature to
1. Arrange interior oven racks.
2. Turn the oven mode selector to CONV BAKE.
3. Turn the oven temperature selector to 375°F.
4. The oven temperature light will blink for a few seconds
before sounding a chime confirming the setting. The
convection fan will turn on and the oven will begin
heating. Once the oven reaches the set temperature the
oven will sound a chime indicating the food items can
be placed in the oven. At times, the convection fan may
pulse on and off in order to maintain optimum baking
5. When finished baking, be sure to return both the
temperature selector knob and the oven mode knob to
the OFF positions.
