the Warmer (Warm & Ready
TM)
Zone (if equipped)
The purpose of the Warmer Zone is to keep hot cooked foods at serving temperature.
Use the warmer zone to keep
cooked foods hot such as: vegetables, gravies, casseroles, soups, stews, breads, pastries and oven-safe dinner
plates. Always start with hot food. It is not recommended
to heat cold food on the Warmer Zone.
All food placed on the warmer zone should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil to maintain quality.
For best
results, when warming pastries or breads, the cover should have an opening to allow moisture to escape. Do not
use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto the surface and be very difficult to clean.
Use only plates, utensils and cookware recommended for oven and cooktop use on the Warmer Zone.
Always use potholders or oven mitts when removing food from the warmer zone as cookware and
plates will be hot.

Selection
Refer to the Warmer Zone table for recommended
heating
levels (Figure 2). If a particular food is not listed, start with the
medium level, and adjust as needed. Most foods can be kept at
serving temperatures
by using the medium level.
The Warmer Zone will not glow red when it is hot,
but becomes hot enough to cause burns. Avoid placing hands
on or near the Warmer Zone until the Warmer Zone Hot
Surface indicator light is off.
