Oven Vent

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. Never set plastics, paper or other items that
could melt or burn near the oven vent.

Baking and Roasting

Do not place food or cookware directly on the oven door or the
oven bottom.
Before baking and roasting, position the racks according to the
"Positioning Racks and Bakeware" section. When roasting, it is
not necessary to wait for the oven to preheat before putting food
in, unless recommended in the recipe.
To Bake or Roast:
1. Push in and turn the oven control knob to the desired
temperature setting.
2. Place food in oven.
The oven burner will cycle on and off to keep the oven
temperature at the setting.
3. Push in and turn oven control knob to OFF when finished.

Broiling

BROILER
The broiler is located below the oven door. The broiler pan and
grid pull out for easy access. Always broil with the broiler and
oven doors closed.
To avoid damage to the broiler, do not step on or apply
weight to the broiler door while it is open.
Do not preheat broiler before use. Completely close broiler
door during broiling.
Do not use broiler drawer for storage.
Use only the broiler pan and grid provided with the appliance.
It is designed to drain juices and help prevent spatter and
smoke.
For proper draining, do not cover the grid with foil. The
bottom of the pan may be lined with aluminum foil for easier
cleaning.
Trim excess fat to reduce spattering. Slit the remaining fat on
the edges to prevent curling.
Pull out broiler pan to stop position before turning or
removing food. Use tongs to turn food to avoid the loss of
juices. Very thin cuts of fish, poultry or meat may not need to
be turned.
After broiling, remove the pan from the oven when removing
the food. Drippings will bake on the pan if left in the heated
oven, making cleaning more difficult.
