Baking and Roasting

®
ACCUBAKE
Temperature Management System
(on some models)
The ACCUBAKE system electronically regulates the oven heat
levels during preheat and bake to maintain a precise temperature
range for optimal cooking results. The bake and broil elements
cycle on and off in intervals. The bake element will glow red when
cycling on, the broil element will not. This feature is automatically
activated when the oven is in use.
Before baking and roasting, position racks according to the
"Positioning Racks and Bakeware" section. When roasting, it is
not necessary to wait for the oven preheat conditioning time to
end before putting food in unless recommended in the recipe.
To Bake or Roast:
1. Press BAKE.
Press TEMP ( ) or ( ) to set a temperature other than 350°F
(175°C) in 5° amounts. The bake range can be set between
170°F and 500°F (75°C and 260°C).
2. Press START.
The temperature can be changed after this step.
START does not need to be pressed again.
3. Press OFF when finished.
Preheating
After START is pressed, the oven will enter a timed preheat
conditioning. "PrE" and the time countdown will appear on the
display. When the preheat conditioning time ends, a tone will
sound and the selected temperature will appear on the display.
Preheat temperatures are affected by varying factors such as
room temperature and peak energy usage times. It is normal for
the temperature showing on the display and the actual oven
temperature to differ.
Waiting an additional ten minutes after the preheat conditioning
time ends to put food in the oven is suggested when baking
foods with leavening ingredients, such as yeast, baking powder,
baking soda and eggs.

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.
Use only the broiler pan and grid provided with the range. 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 oven rack 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.
Before broiling, position rack according to Broiling Chart. It is not
necessary to preheat the oven before putting food in unless
recommended in the recipe. Position food on grid in the broiler
pan, then place it in the center of the oven rack. Close the door.
