BEFORE SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Air circulation in the oven
For best baking results allow 2-4" (5-10 cm) around the
cookware for proper air circulation and be sure pans and
cookware do not touch each other, the oven door, sides or
back of the oven cavity. Hot air must be able to circulate
around the pans and cookware in the oven for even heat to
reach around the food.
BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Using proper cookware
The size and type of cookware used will influence the
setting needed for best cooking results. Be sure to
follow the recommendations for using proper
cookware as illustrated in Figs. 3 & 4.
Cookware should have flat bottoms that make good
contact with the entire surface heating element . Check
for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of the
cookware (See Fig. 3).
Baking layer cakes with 1 or 2 oven racks
For best results when baking cakes using 2 flat oven racks,
place cookware on rack positions 2 & 5 (See Fig. 1). For
best results when using a single oven flat rack, place
cookware on rack positions 2, 3 or 4 (See Fig. 2).
