IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the oven bottom
finish, do not line the oven bottom with any type of foil or liner.
For best cooking results, do not cover entire oven rack with foil
because air must be able to move freely.
Positioning Racks and Bakeware
IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the porcelain
finish, do not place food or bakeware directly on the oven door
To cook food evenly, hot air must be able to circulate. Allow
2" (5 cm) of space around bakeware and oven walls. Make sure
that no bakeware piece is directly over another.
Position racks before turning on the oven.
Do not position racks with bakeware on them.
Make sure racks are level.
To move a rack, pull it out to the stop position, raise the front
edge, and then lift out. Use the following illustration as a guide.
Rack 5: Toasting bread or broiling thin, non-fatty foods.
Rack 4: 2-rack baking and broiling.
Rack 3: Most baked goods on a cookie sheet, muffin pan, or jelly
roll pan; and layer cakes. Broiling chicken pieces.
Rack 2: Pies, casseroles, yeast bread, quick breads, frozen
convenience foods, and 2-rack baking.
Rack 1: Roasting large and small cuts of meat and poultry.
Multiple Rack Cooking
2-rack: Use rack positions 2 and 4.
Baking Layer Cakes on 2 Racks
For best results when baking cakes on 2 racks, use racks 2 and
4 for baking. Place the cakes on the racks as shown.
A. Oven vent
The oven vent releases hot air and moisture from the oven
and should not be blocked or covered. Blocking or covering the
oven 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.
On coil element models, the element can be used when the oven
is in use as long as the cookware does not extend more than
" (1.3 cm) over the element.
Baking and Roasting
NOTE: The convection fan will shut off when the oven door is
opened. If the oven door remains open for too long, the heating
elements will shut off until the oven door is closed. All timers,
including any active Cook Time or Timed Cook functions, will
continue to count down.
Temperature Management System
system electronically regulates the oven heat
levels during preheat and bake to maintain a precise temperature
range for optimal cooking results. The bake and broil elements
or burners cycle on and off in intervals. On convection range
models, the fan will run while preheating and may be cycled on
and off for short intervals during Bake to provide the best results.
This feature is automatically activated when the oven is in use.
Before baking and roasting, position racks according to
"Positioning Racks and Bakeware" section. When roasting, it is
not necessary to wait for the oven preheat cycle to end before
putting food in unless it is recommended in the recipe.
When Start is pressed, the oven will begin preheating. Once
150ºF (66ºC) is reached, the display temperature will increase as
the actual temperature of the oven increases. When the preheat
temperature is reached, a tone will sound, and the selected
temperature will appear on the display.
