(some models)
Quick Bake Cooking System uses a fan to circulate the
oven's heat uniformly and continuously around the oven. This
improved heat distribution allows for fast, even cooking and
browning results. It also gives better baking results when using
two racks at the same time.
Heated air flows around the food from all sides, sealing in
juices and flavors. Meats cooked with Quick Bake Cooking
System are juicer. Poultry is crisp on the outside while staying
tender and moist on the inside. Breads and pastry brown more
evenly. Most foods baked in a standard oven can be cooked
faster and more evenly with Quick Bake Cooking System.
General Cooking Instructions:
1. To convert baking times from normal recipes to Quick Bake times, start with a 30%
reduction in time and increase the time until desired doneness is obtained. Time
reductions will vary depending on the amount and type of food.
2. Preheating is not necessary when cooking with Quick Bake, except with items such as
cakes, cookies, biscuits, breads, etc.
3. When using two racks at the same time, place them in positions 1 and 3 for the best
4. When baking cakes with Quick Bake, set temperature 25°F (13°C) degrees lower than
the recommended setting for best results.
