The purpose of the Warmer Drawer is to keep hot cooked foods at serving
temperature. Always start with hot food. It is not recommended
to heat cold
food in the Warmer Drawer. All food placed in the Warmer Drawer should be
covered with a lid or aluminum foil to maintain quality.
Do not use plastic
wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto the drawer and be very difficult
to clean. Use only utensils and cookware recommended for oven use in the
Rack in downward
Always use potholders or oven mitts when removing food from
the Warmer Drawer as cookware and plates will be hot and you can be burned.
To Set the Warmer
The control is used to select the temperature of the Warmer Drawer. It is
located on the control panel. To set the control, push in and turn the knob to
the desired setting. The temperatures are approximate, and are designated by
HI (high), MED (medium) and LO (low).
Turn the knob to select the desired temperature setting.
For best results, preheat the drawer before adding food. An empty drawer

When done, turn the control to OFF.
Recommended Warmer Drawer settings table is shown in Figure 3. If a
particular food is not listed, start with the MED setting. If more crispness is
desired, remove the lid or aluminum foil from the food. Most foods can be kept
at serving temperatures on the MED setting. When a combination of foods are
to be kept warm (for instance, a meat with 2 vegetables and rolls), use the HI
setting. To avoid heat loss, do not open the Warmer Drawer while in use.
The Warmer Drawer indicator light is located above the Warmer Drawer control
knob (See Fig.2). It turns on when the control is set, and stays on until the
control is turned off. The Warmer Drawer is inoperable
