Preheating
Preheating
is necessary
for proper
baking
results.
It is not
necessary
for
broiling
or roasting.
Allow
the oven
to heat
until
the desired
oven
temperature
is reached
(approximately
10 to 15 minutes).
Selecting
a temperature
higher
than
the
desired
temperature
will
not
preheat
the
oven
any
faster.
In fact,
this
may
have
a negative
effect
on baking
results.
Oven Light
The
oven
light
automatically
comes
on whenever
the
oven
door
is opened.
When
the
door
is closed,
push
the
rocker
switch
marked
OVEN
LIGHT
on
the
control
panel
to turn
it on and
off.
Panel Light (select m odels)
The
panel
light
is turned
on by pushing
the rocker
switch
marked
PANEL
LIGHT
on the control
panel
and
holding
it in the
depressed
position
until
the
fluorescent
light
comes
on. It may
be turned
off by
depressing
the
other
side
of the
switch.
General Baking Tips
* Use
a reliable
recipe
and
accurately
measure
in-
gredients.
Carefully
follow
directions
especially
for oven
temperature
and
cooking
time.
* Use
the
correct
rack
position.
Baking
results
may
be affected
if the wrong
rack
is used.
Top browning
may
be darker
if tbod
is located
toward
the
top
of the
oven.
Bottom
browning
may
be
darker
if food
is
located
toward
the bottom
of the
oven.
When
using
two
racks
for
baking,
allow
enough
space
between
the
racks
for proper
air
circulation.
Browning
and
cooking
results
will
be affected
if air
flow is blocked.
* Utensil
material
and size
play an important
part
in
baking
results,
especially
the
amount
of
browning.
Always
use
the
type
and
size
of utensil
called
for
in
the
recipe.
Many
pans
have
the
measurements
marked
on
them.
If there
are
no
measurements,
measure
the
inside
width
and
length
of the pan.
Cooking
times
or cooking
results
may
be affected
if the
wrong
size
utensil
is used.
* Shiny
metal
pan
reflects
heat
away
from
the
food,
produces
lighter
browning
and
a softer
crust.
Use
shiny
pans
for
baking
cakes
or
cookies.
For
optimum
baking
results,
bake
cookies
and
biscuits
on a flat
cookie
sheet.
If
the
pan
has
sides,
such
as
a jelly
roll
pan,
browrling
may
not
be even.
* Dark
metal
pan
or a pan
with
an
anodized
(dull)
bottom
absorbs
heat,
produces
darker
browning
and
a crisper
crust.
Use
this
type
of
pan
for pies,
pie crusts
or bread.
* If using
oven-proof
glassware,
or dark
pans
such
as
Ekco's
Baker's
Secret
bakeware,
reduce
the
oven
temperature
by 25°F
except
when
baking
pies
or bread
in glassware.
Use
the
same
baking
time
as
called
for
in
the
recipe.
Use
this
type
of pan
for pies
or breads.
* Allow
hot
air to flow
freely
through
the
oven
for
optimum
baking
results.
Improper
placement
of pans
in the
oven
will
block
air
flow
and
may
result
in uneven
browning.
For optimum
browning
and
even
cooking
results:
* Do not
crowd
a rack
with
pans.
Never
place
more
than
one
cookie
sheet,
one
13x9x2-inch
cake
pan
or two round
cake
pans
on one
rack.
* Stagger
pans
when
baking
on two racks
so one
pan
is not
directly
over
another
pan.
* Allow
two
inches
between
the
pan
and
the
oven walls.
* Check
the cooking
progress
at the minimum
time
recommended
in the
recipe.
If necessary,
continue
checking
at
intervals
until
the
food
is
done.
If the oven
door
is opened
too frequently,
heat
will escape
the
oven;
this
can
affect
baking
results
and wastes
energy.
• If you
add
additional
ingredients
or alter
the
recipe,
expect
cooking
times
to
increase
or
decrease
slightly.
