Meat Thermometer

On models without a temperature probe, use a meat
thermometer to determine doneness of meat, poultry and fish.
The internal temperature, not appearance, should be used to
determine doneness. A meat thermometer is not supplied with
this appliance.
Insert the thermometer into the center of the thickest portion
of the meat or inner thigh or breast of poultry. The tip of the
thermometer should not touch fat, bone or gristle.
After reading the thermometer once, push it into the meat
½" (1.3 cm) more and read again. If the temperature drops,
cook the meat or poultry longer.
Check all meat, poultry and fish in 2 or 3 different places.

Temperature Probe

(on convection models)
Burn Hazard
Use an oven mitt to remove temperature probe.
Do not touch broil element.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in burns.
The temperature probe accurately measures the internal
temperature of meat, poultry and casseroles with liquid and
should be used in determining the doneness of meat and poultry.
It should not be used during full and center broiling, convection
broiling, dehydrating or proofing bread.
Always unplug and remove the temperature probe from the oven
when removing food.
To Use:
Before using, insert the probe into the center of the thickest
portion of meat or into the inner thigh or breast of poultry, away
from fat or bone at an angle as shown in following diagram. Place
food in oven and connect the temperature probe to the jack.
Keep probe as far away from heat source as possible. Close oven

3. Press START.
The set oven temperature will appear on the oven display
throughout cooking.
"Lo°" will appear as the probe temperature until the internal
temperature of the food reaches 130°F (54°C). Then the
display will show the temperature increasing in 1°F
When the set probe temperature is reached, the oven will
shut off automatically and "End" will appear on the oven
If enabled, end-of-cycle tones will sound.
4. Press OFF or open the oven door to clear the display.
To Change Probe Temperature, Oven Setting:
Press OFF, then repeat previous steps.
After cooking, unplug the probe and remove food from oven. The
probe symbol will remain lit until the probe is unplugged from the
probe jack.
See "General Cleaning" section to clean probe.
The oven vent should not be blocked or covered since it allows
the release of hot air and moisture from the oven. Blocking or
covering the vent will cause poor air circulation, affecting cooking
and cleaning results. Do not set plastics, paper or other items
that could melt or burn near the oven vent.

IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the porcelain
finish, do not place food or bakeware directly on the oven door or
