NEW OVEN ODOR
During the first baking and broiling cycles on your new oven, there may
be some odor. This is normal and is caused by the heating of new parts
and insulation. This odor will go away within a short time. A vent fan or
other ventilation will help to clear the air.
When the oven IS on, heated air moves through a vent in the cooktop.
On solid disk element models this vent is between the two rear elements,
on the cooktop. For open coil element models this vent IS below the right
rear cooktop elements. On the cooktop, this hot air may make pot handles
hot or melt plastic things left too near the vent.
The vent IS needed for proper air flow in the oven and good baking results.
Do not block this vent. Doing so may cause cooking failure,
damage to the range.
To catch spillovers,
cut a piece of foil slightly larger than the pan and turn
up the edges. use two oven racks and put the foil on the lower oven rack
below the pan. Do not use alummum foil directly under2 pan on the same
oven rack The foil will reflect heat away from the pan.
Do not cover the oven bottom or an entire oven rack
with foil. The foil can block normal heat flow, cause
and damage the oven interior.
For slow brownina. olace a foil "tent" loosely over the meat. This IS especial-
ly good on a large Turkey. The "tent" lets-oven heat circulate under the
foil Sealing the foil will tend to steam the meat.
To reduce spattering,
lightly crush loll and put It in the bottom of the pan
under the food
Do not cover the entire broiler
grid with foil. Poor
of hot fat may cause a broiler fire.
If a fire starts, close the oven door and turn controls
off. If fire contmues. throw baking soda on the fife. DO
nnt nllt water nr flour on the fire. Flour mav be exolosive.
