!. Outer broil element
2. Inner broil element
Broiling uses direct radiant heat from the broil element(s)to
cook
food.
During maxi broiling, both the inner and outer broil elements heat.
During econo broiling, only the inner broil element heats.
Use econo broiling for small amouts of food. The element(s) cycle
on and off in intervals to maintain the oven temperature.
If the lower oven door is opened during broiling, the broil
element(s) will turn off immediately and come back on once the
door is closed.
Use only the broiler pan and grid provided with the appliance.
It is designed to drain juices and help prevent spatter and
smoke.
For proper draining, do not cover the grid with foil. The
bottom of the pan may be lined with aluminum foil for easier
cleaning.
Trim excess fat to reduce spattering. Slit the remaining fat on
the edges to prevent curling.
Pull out oven rack to stop position before turning or removing
food. Use tongs to turn food to avoid the loss of juices. Very
thin cuts of fish, poultry or meat may not need to be turned.
After broiling, remove the pan from the oven when removing
the food. Drippings will bake on the pan if left in the heated
oven, making cleaning more difficult.
To Broil:
Before broiling, position the rack according to the cookbook
supplied with this oven.
Changing the temperature when broiling allows more precise
control when cooking. The lower the temperature, the slower the
cooking. Thicker cuts and unevenly shaped pieces of meat, fish
and poultry may cook better at lower broiling temperatures.
Position food on the grid in the broiler pan, then place it in the
center of the oven rack with the longest side parallel to the door.
It is not necessary to wait for the oven to preheat before putting
food in, unless recommended
in the recipe.
Close the door.
