General Temperature Ranges
Warm Setting
Used to keep foods that have been prepared in the Skillet at serving temperature for a
short period of time. Adjust temperature up to keep foods warm for longer periods of time.
Low Heat – 200°F to 250°F (93°C – 121°C)
Use for warming, simmering, steaming, and gentle boiling. Some foods are started at
higher temperatures then reduced to low heat to finish the cooking process. Use for
cooking special dessert sauces, such as Cherries Jubilee, and puddings.
Medium Heat — 250°F to 325°F (121°C – 163°C)
Use for eggs, bacon, and sausage, or to sauté vegetables such as onions, green pepper,
or mushrooms. Also to cook roasts and other cuts of meat after they have been
browned at higher temperatures.
High Heat — 325°F to 400°F (163°C – 204°C)
Use to brown, sear, pan fry (with fat), deep fry, and pan broil meats without fat and to
stir fry meats and vegetables (with fat). Breaded foods such as vegetables, meats, fish,
and poultry are pan fried in this temperature range with a small quantity of fat.

Cooking Guides

The cooking temperatures and times in the GUIDES are approximate. You may have to
adjust them depending on food size, quantity, temperature, and personal taste. Foods at
room temperature need less cooking time than foods taken from the refrigerator. You
might need to reduce the temperature/time for small quantities of food. Choose one of
the following for grease or fat, depending on personal preference: butter, margarine, oil,
shortening, drippings.
