Arranging Warmer Drawer Rack Positions
Set the warmer drawer rack in the vertical position as shown below.
The rack can be used in 2 ways:
• In the upright position to allow low profi le food items to be placed both
under and on top of the rack (for example, rolls or biscuits on top of the
rack and a casserole dish under).
• In the downward position for placement of light weight food items and
empty dishware (for example, rolls or pastries and dinner plates).
Setting Warmer Drawer Control
To Operate the Warmer Drawer
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 moisture and softness. Do not cover crisp foods.
Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto the drawer
and be very diffi cult to clean.
Use only dishware, utensils and cookware recommended for oven use in
the warmer drawer.
Always use potholders or oven mitts when removing food from the
warmer drawer as cookware and plates will be hot.
Indicator Light
The indicator light is located below the thermostat control knob. It turns
on when the control is set, and stays on until the control is turned off .
Make sure indicator light is off when removing food from drawer.
Warmer Drawer Humidity Controller Feature
This feature may be used to control humidity in the Warmer Drawer. The
control knob is located on the inner front panel of the Warmer Drawer.
For dry heat: Slide the humidity control knob in the direction of less moist
(Figure 1). This allows more of the moist heat to escape and provides a
dryer environment for the food in the Warmer Drawer.
For moist heat: Slide the humidity control knob in the direction of more
moist (Figure 2). This will help keep the food in the Warmer Drawer from
drying out. Both heat and moisture will be applied to the Warmer Drawer
Note: For some types of servings you may want to store previously
prepared food in a "dry heat" environment. For frequent controller
adjustments, slide the control knob to any desired position.
