SETTING CONVECTION BAKE
This mode of cooking enables you to obtain the best culinary
results when baking with multiple pans and racks. Multiple
rack baking may slightly increase cook time for some foods
but the overall result is time saved. Some food may cook
faster and more evenly with Convection Bake. Convection
baking uses the three elements and a fan to circulate
the oven's heat evenly and continuously within the oven.
The oven can be programmed for Convection baking at
any temperature between 170°F to 550°F with a default
temperature of 350°F.
Convection Baking Tips:
Always preheat your oven before using the Convection
During preheat, the 3 elements and the convection fan
are used in cycle to quickly heat the oven.
If your recipe cooking temperature has already been
converted for convection baking there is no need to re-
duce your oven temperature. If your recipe has not had
the temperature converted for convection baking you
can easily reduce using the Convection Convert feature.
Please see Convection Convert section on next page for
further instruction on temperature conversion.
Use tested recipes with times adjusted for convection
baking when using this mode. Time reductions will
vary depending on the amount and type of food to be
When using Convection Bake with a single rack, place
oven rack in position 2 or 3. If cooking on multiple racks,
place the oven racks in positions 2 and 4 or 1, 3 (offset
rack) and 4.
Most bakeries (except cakes) should be baked on pans
with no sides or very low sides to allow heated air to
circulate around the food.
Food baked on pans with a dark finish will cook faster.
