Oven Vent A. Oven vent (ceramic glass model) The oven vent releases hot air and moisture from the oven, and should not be blocked or covered. Blocking or covering the vent will cause poor air circulation, affecting cooking and cleaning results.
Broiling Broiling uses direct radiant heat to cook food. Changing the temperature when Custom Broiling allows more precise control when cooking. The lower the temperature, the slower the cooking. Thicker cuts and unevenly shaped pieces of meat, fish and poultry may cook better at lower broiling temperatures. For best results, use a broiler pan and grid (provided on some models).
When roasting poultry and meat, use the roasting rack on the top of the broiler pan and grid. It is not necessary to wait for the oven to preheat, unless recommended in the recipe. A. Roasting rack B. Broiler grid C.
