Speed Bake™ Cooking System uses a fan4to circulate the oven's heat
uniformly and continuously around the oven. This improved heat distribution
allows for fast, even cooking and browning results. It also gives better baking
results when using two racks at the same time (See Fig. 1).
Heated air flows around the food from all sides, sealing in juices and flavors.
Meats cooked with Speed Bake™ Cooking System are juicer. Poultry is
crisp on the outside while staying tender and moist on the inside. Breads and
