CONVECTION BAKING As a general rule, reduce the temperature by 25°F. for convection baking. Preheating is not necessary with foods having a bake time of over 15 minutes. Multi-Shelf Baking Because heated air is circulated evenly throughout the oven, foods can be baked with excellent results on two, three or more shelves at a time.
TIMED CONVECTION BAKING How to Convection Time Bake The oven control allows you to turn the oven on or off automatically at specific times that you set. Examples of Immediate Start (oven turns on now and you set it to turn off automatically at the end of cooking time) and Delay Start and Stop (setting the oven to turn on automatically at a later time and turn off after a preset cooking time) will be described.
TIMED CONVECTION BAKING How to Set Delay Start and Automatic Stop Convection Bake Easy Steps: 1. Press CONVECTION BAKE. 2. Press the number pads to set the oven temperature. 3. Press COOKING TIME. 4. Press the number pads to set the length of baking time.
CONVECTION ROASTING Meats cooked in a convection oven are dark brown on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. In most cases, cooking time will be less when using the Convection Roast feature. Sometimes cooking time is reduced by 10 minutes per hour.
NOTE: For best results when roasting large turkeys and roasts, we recommend using the probe included in the convection oven. For the correct placement of the probe, see the description in the Roasting section. The display will flash if the probe is inserted into the outlet and you have not set a probe temperature and pressed START.

Oven Shelves Arrange the oven shelf or shelves in the desired locations while the oven is cool. The correct shelf position depends on the kind of food and the browning desired. As a general rule, place most foods in the middle of the oven, on either shelf position C or D.
Cookies When baking cookies, flat cookie sheets (without sides) produce better-looking cookies. Cookies baked in a jelly roll pan (short sides all around) may have darker edges and pale or light browning may occur. Do not use a cookie sheet so large that it touches the walls or the door of the oven.

ADJUST THE OVEN THERMOSTAT— You may find that your new oven cooks differently than the one it replaced. We recommend that you use your new oven for a few weeks to become more familiar with it, following the times given in your recipes as a guide.
Roasting is cooking by dry heat. Tender meat or poultry can be roasted uncovered in your oven. Roasting temperatures, which should be low and steady, keep spattering to a minimum. Roasting is really a baking procedure used for meats. Therefore, the oven controls are set for Baking or Timed Baking.
ROASTING WITH THE PROBE Correct Placement of the Temperature Probe Your double oven has a probe in the upper oven only. A temperature probe has been provided for use in your new oven. This probe is designed to withstand high temperatures.
How to Set the Oven When Using the Temperature Probe The display will flash if the probe is inserted into the outlet and you have not set a probe temperature and pressed START. 1. Insert the probe into the meat. 2.
Questions and Answers Q. Is it necessary to check for doneness with a meat thermometer? A. Checking the finished internal temperature at the completion of cooking time is recommended if you did not use the probe while cooking. Temperatures are shown in the Roasting Guide. For roasts over 8 lbs., check with thermometer at half-hour intervals after half the cooking time has passed.
Broiling is cooking food by intense radiant heat from the upper broil element in the oven. Most fish and tender cuts of meat can be broiled. Follow these directions to keep spattering and smoking to a minimum. If the meat has fat or gristle around the edge, cut vertical slashes through both about 2 inches apart.
Use of Aluminum Foil You can use aluminum foil to line your broiler pan and broiler grid. However, you must mold the foil tightly to the grid and cut slits in it just like the grid. Without the slits, the foil will prevent fat and meat juices from draining into the broiler pan.
• Always use the broiler pan and grid that comes with your oven. It is designed to minimize smoking and spattering by trapping juices in the shielded lower part of the pan. • The oven door should be open to the broil stop position.
OPERATING THE SELF-CLEANING OVEN Before a Clean Cycle 1. Remove the broiler pan, broiler grid, all cookware and any aluminum foil from the oven—they can’t withstand the high cleaning temperatures. NOTE: The oven shelves and the convection roasting rack may be cleaned in the self-cleaning oven.

Proper care and cleaning are important so your oven will give you efficient and satisfactory service. Follow these directions carefully in caring for your oven to assure safe and proper maintenance. BE SURE ELECTRICAL POWER IS OFF AND ALL SURFACES ARE COOL BEFORE CLEANING ANY PART OF THE OVEN.
Lift-Off Oven Door The oven door is removable, but it is heavy. You may need help removing and replacing the door. Do not lift the door by the handle. This can cause the glass to break or can cause damage to the door. To remove the door, open it a few inches to the special stop position that will hold the door open.
Probe The temperature probe may be cleaned with soap and water or a soap-filled scouring pad. Cool the temperature probe before cleaning. Scour stubborn spots with a soap-filled scouring pad, rinse and dry. Do not immerse the temperature probe in water. Do not store the temperature probe in the oven.
