Before Setting Oven Controls
Arranging
Oven Racks
ALWAYS ARRANGE OVEN RACKS WHEN THE OVEN IS
COOL (PRIOR TO OPERATING THE OVEN). Always use
oven mitts when the oven is hot.
Oven Vent Location
The oven vent is located below the
backguard.
When the oven is on, hot
air is released through the vents. This
venting is necessary for proper air
circulation in the oven and good baking
results.

Air Circulation
in the Oven
If using 1 rack, place in center of oven. If using multiple
racks, stagger cookware as shown.
For best air circulation and 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. The hot air must circulate
around the pans and cookware
in the oven for even heat to
reach around the food.
