Cooking tips Baking tips The hot air must circulate around the pans in the oven for even heat to reach all parts of the oven. This results in better baking. For best air circulation: • Place the pans so that one is not directly over the other.
sing and Caring for Your Oven Using aluminum foil in the oven (For thermal baking) Use aluminum foil to catch spillovers from pies or casseroles. • Place the foil on the oven rack below the rack with the food. Turn foil edges up and make sure foil is about 1 inch larger all around than the dish holding the food.
• Use the convection roasting rack on the broiler pan (both included with your range). (The convection roasting rack rests on the broiler pan, not inside it.) The long side of the rack should be parallel with the oven door for best heat distribution and airflow.
