Using the Broil Feature
Use the broil feature to cook meats requiring direct expo-
sure to radiant heat for optimum browning results. Broiling
will produce some smoke. If smoke is excessive, place the
food further away from the broil element. Always watch food
carefully to prevent burning. Always arrange oven racks
when the oven is cool. The door must be closed for broil to
operate. If the door is left open the display will show "d-O".
Close the door for the function to resume. When broiling,
always pull the oven rack out to the stop position before
turning or removing food.
CAUTION
Always use pot holders or oven mitts when working with a
hot oven. When broiling, the oven interior, oven racks and
cooktop will become hot enough to cause burns. Do not
use the broiler pan without the insert. The insert is slotted
and allows the grease to drain away from the meat and
the high heat of the broiler into the broiler pan. Do not
cover the broil pan or insert with aluminum foil; the
exposed grease could ignite.
WARNING
If an oven fire occurs, close the oven door. If the fire
continues, throw baking soda on the fire or use a fire
extinguisher. Do not put water or flour on the fire. Flour
can be explosive; water can cause a grease fire to spread
possibly causing personal injury.To prevent grease splat-
tering, use the broil pan and insert when broiling

Depending on the type, the thickness, and the desired doneness of meat, it might be necessary to increase or decrease suggested broiling times or adjust the
broiling pan to different rack positions.
*Use offset rack in top position. The U.S. Department of Agriculture states, **Rare fresh beef is popular, but you should know that cooking it to only 140°F (60°C)
means some food poisoning organisms may survive." (Source: Safe Food Book, Your Kitchen Guide, USDA Rev. June 1985.) The lowest temperature recommended
by the USDA is 145°F (63°C) for medium rare fresh beef. For well done 170°F (77ºC). All cook times shown are after 2 minutes of preheating.
