Setting Oven Controls
The CONV BAKE _
pad controls the Convection Bake feature. The oven
can be programmed for Convection baking at any temperature between 170 °
F (77°C) to 550 ° F (288 ° C).
Convection baking uses a fan to circulate the oven's heat evenly and
continuously within the oven (Figure 1). This improved heat distribution
allows for even cooking and excellent results using multiple racks at the
same time. Foods cooked on a single oven rack will generally cook faster
and more evenly with Convection Bake. Multiple oven rack cooking may
slightly increase cook times for some foods, but the overall result is time
saved. Breads and pastries brown more evenly.
When using Convection Bake, adjust the cook time for desired doneness
as needed. Time reductions will vary depending on the amount and type
of food to be cooked. Cookies and biscuits 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.
Preheating is not necessary when cooking casseroles with Convection
