RECOMMENDATIONS

Meat Thermometer

On models without a temperature probe, always rely on a meat
thermometer to determine doneness of meat and poultry. The
internal temperature, not appearance, is what counts. A meat
thermometer is not supplied with this appliance.
Insert the thermometer into the center of the thickest portion
of the meat or inner thigh or breast of poultry. The tip of the
thermometer should not touch fat, bone or gristle.
After reading the thermometer once, push it into the meat
in. (1.25 cm) more and read again. If the temperature
drops, cook the meat or poultry longer.
Check all meat in two or three places.

Oven Vent

1. Oven Vent
The oven vent releases hot air and moisture from the oven, and
should not be blocked or covered. Doing so 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.
