DEHYDRATING

This mode dries foods with heat from the bake and the convection element. The heat is circulated
throughout the oven by the convection fan. Dehydrating is used to dry and/or preserve foods such
as fruits, meats, vegetables and herbs. This mode holds an optimum low temperature while
circulating the heated air to slowly remove moisture. The oven can be programmed for
Dehydrating at any temperature between 100°F to 225°F with a default temperature of 120°F.
Dehydrating Tips:
Do not preheat the oven.
Multiple racks can be used simultaneously.
Drying times vary depending on the moisture and sugar content of the food, the size of the
pieces, the amount being dried and the humidity in the air.
Check food at the minimum drying time.
Treat fruits with antioxidants to avoid discoloration.
Consult a food preservation book or a library for additional information.

1. Arrange interior oven racks and place food.
2. Select oven by pressing either UPPER OVEN
3. Press DEHYDRATE
4. Press START

DEFROSTING

Use the defrost feature to thaw small portions of delicate items such as cream cakes,
frozen cream pies and cheesecake, at room temperature. While in the defrost mode, the
