Cooking Modes


For many foods, especially roasts and poultry, testing the internal temperature is the best method
to insure properly cooked food. The Temperature Probe gets the exact temperature you desire
without having to guess. This feature can be used with Bake, Convection Bake, Convection Roast
and Perfect Turkey cooking modes. The oven can be programmed for Probe at any temperature
between 130°F to 210°F with a default temperature of 170°F.
1. Use only the probe supplied with your appliance; any other may result in damage to the probe
or the appliance.
2. Handle the Temperature Probe carefully when inserting and removing it from the food and outlet.
3. Do not use tongs to pull the cable when inserting or removing the Probe. It could damage the Probe.
4. Defrost your food completely before inserting the Probe to avoid breaking it.
5. Never leave or store the Temperature Probe inside the oven when not in use.
6. To prevent the possibility of burns, carefully unplug the Temperature Probe using hot pads.
Proper Temperature Probe Placement:
1. Always insert the probe so that the tip rests in the center of the
thickest part of the meat. Do not allow probe to touch bone,
fat, gristle or pan.
2. For bone-in ham or lamb, insert the Probe into the center of the
lowest large muscle or joint. For dishes such as meat loaf or
casseroles, insert the Probe into the center of the food. When cooking
fish, insert the Probe from just above the gill into the meatiest area, parallel to
the backbone.
3. For whole poultry (chicken, turkey, etc.), insert the probe into the thickest part of the inner thigh
from below and parallel to the leg (see figure 1).
Setting the Oven when using the Temperature Probe:
1. Insert the Temperature Probe into the food (see Proper Temperature Probe Placement above).
2. Plug the Temperature Probe into its outlet in the oven. (The outlet is located on the top left
hand side of the cavity wall, near front of the oven). Always insert the probe into a cool oven.
Make sure it is pushed all the way into the outlet. Close the oven door.
