SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Convect bake (all models)
Benefits of the convect feature
— Foods may cook up to 25 to 30% faster, saving time and
energy.
— Multiple rack baking.
— No special pans or bakeware needed.
Convect uses a fan to circulate the oven's heat uniformly
and continuously around the oven. This improved heat
distribution allows for fast, even cooking and browning
results. It also gives better baking results when using two
racks at the same time.
Heated air flows around the food from all sides, sealing in
juices and flavors. Breads and pastry brown more evenly.
Layer cakes will have better results using the bake pad.
Most foods baked in a standard oven can be cooked faster
and more evenly with the convect feature.
Suggestions for convect baking
1. For optimum cooking results it is recommended to
preheat the oven when baking foods such as cookies,
biscuits and breads.
2. Reduce oven temperature 25°F from recipe's
recommended oven temperature. Follow the remainder
of the recipe's instructions using the minimum
recommended cook time.
3. When using 2 oven racks at the same time, place in
positions 2 & 5 for best results (Fig. 1).
Convect bake (all models)
To set convect (convection bake) with a default oven
set temperature of 350°F:
Step
1. Press convect.
2. Press start (See Fig. 2).
NOTES
When using convection bake cook time reductions may
vary depending on the amount and type of food being
cooked.
The convection fan will begin rotating once
convection bake or convection roast has been activated.

Convect roast (all models)
Meats cooked with convect roast will be juicer and
poultry will be crisp on the outside while staying tender and
moist on the inside.
NOTE
When choosing between the convect features, use the
convect keypad to toggle between convect bake,
convect roast or convect broil (some models) choices.
Suggestion for convect roast
1. Preheating is not necessary when roasting foods using
convect roast.
2. Since convect roast cooks food faster, reduce the
cook time by 25% from the recommended cook time of
your recipe (check the food at this time). If necessary,
increase cook time until the desired doneness is
obtained.
3. Do not cover foods when dry roasting - this will prevent
the meat from browning properly.
To set convect roast (convection roast) with a
default oven set temperature of 350°F:
Step
1. Press convect.
2. Press convect again.
3. Press start (See Fig. 3).
