Broiling uses direct radiant heat to cook food. The lower the
the slower the cooking. Thicker cuts and unevenly
shaped pieces of meat, fish and poultry may cook better at lower
For best results, use a broiler pan and grid. They are
designed to drain juices and help avoid spatter and smoke.
If you would like to purchase a broiler pan, one may be
ordered. See "Assistance or Service" section to order.
For proper draining, do not cover the grid with foil. The
bottom of the pan may be lined with aluminum foil for easier
Trim excess fat to reduce spattering.
Slit the remaining fat on
the edges to avoid curling.
Select HIGH/550°F (288°C) broil for most broiling. Select
LOW/450°F (232°C) broil for low-temperature
longer cooking foods such as poultry to avoid over browning.
The Broil feature is only available in the upper oven.
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.
Before broiling, position rack according to the Broiling Chart.
Preheat oven for 5 minutes, position food on grid in the broiler
pan, then place it in the center of the oven rack. Close the door.
