On models without a temperature
probe, always rely on a meat
thermometer
to determine doneness of meat and poultry. The
internal temperature,
not appearance,
is what counts. A meat
thermometer
is not supplied with this appliance.
Insert the thermometer
into the center of the thickest portion
of the meat or inner thigh or breast of poultry. The tip of the
thermometer
should not touch fat, bone or gristle.
After reading the thermometer
once, push it into the meat 1/2
in. (2 cm) more and read again. If the temperature
drops,
cook the meat or poultry longer.
Check pork and poultry in two or three places.
1. Upper oven
2. Oven vent
3. Lower oven
The oven vent should not be blocked or covered since it allows
the release of hot air and moisture from the oven. Doing so will
cause poor air circulation, affecting cooking and cleaning results.
Never set plastics, paper or other items that could melt or burn
near the oven vent.

During baking or roasting, the bake and broil elements will cycle
on and off in intervals to maintain the oven temperature.
If the lower oven door is opened during baking or roasting, the
broil elements will turn off immediately and the bake element will
turn off in 2 minutes. They will come back on once the door is
closed.
To Bake or Roast:
Before baking and roasting, position the racks according to the
"Positioning
Racks and Bakeware" section. When roasting, it is
not necessary to wait for the oven to preheat before putting food
in, unless recommended
in the recipe.

Press the number pads to enter a temperature
other than
350°F (177°C). The bake range can be set between 170°F
and 500°F (77°C and 260°C).
2. Press START.
"Lo °'' will appear on the lower oven display if the actual oven
temperature is under 170°F (77°C).
When the actual oven temperature
reaches 170°F (77°C), the
lower oven display will show the temperature increasing in 5°
increments.
When the set temperature
is reached and the oven is
preheated, if enabled, one tone will sound.
