Never entirely cover a shelf with aluminum foil.
This will disturb the heat circulation and result in
poor baking. A smaller sheet of foil maybe used
to catch a spillover by placing it on a lower shelf
several inches below the food.
Set the timer for the estimated cooking time and do
not open the door to look at your food. Most recipes
provide minimum and maximum baking times such
as "bake 30-40 minutes."
How to Time Bake
The oven control allows you to turn the oven on or
off automatically at specific times that you set.
NOTE: Before beginning make sure the clock shows
the correct time of day.
How to Set Immediate Start and Automatic Stop
To avoid possible burns, place the shelves in the
correct position before you turn the oven on.
The oven will turn on immediately and cook for a
selected length of time. At the end of Cook Time,
the oven will turn off automatically.
1. Press the COOK TIME pad.
NOTE: If your recipe requires preheating, you may
need to add additional time to the length of
the Cook Time.
2. Press the INCREASE pad until the desired length
of baking time appears in the display.
3. Press the BAKE pad.
4. Press the INCREASE or DECREASE pad until the
desired temperature is displayed. An attention tone
will sound if step 3 is not done.
DO NOT open the door to check until the minimum
time. Opening the oven door frequently during
cooking allows heat to escape and makes baking
times longer. Your baking results may also be affected.
(Ovens Controlled with Touch Pads)
To set the clock, first press the CLOCK pad. Press
the INCREASE or DECREASE pad until the correct
time of day is displayed.
The oven will start automatically. The word "ON"
and "100°" will be displayed. The Cook Time will
begin to count down. As the oven heats up, the
display will show the changing temperature.
When the oven reaches the temperature you set,
a tone will sound. The oven will continue to cook
for the programmed amount of time, then shut off
5. Press the CLEAIVOFF pad to clear the display
if necessary. Remove the food from the oven.
Remember, even though the oven shuts off
automatically, foods continue cooking after the
controls are off.
Foods that spoil easily, such as milk, eggs, fish,
sit for more than one hour before or after cooking.
Room temperature promotes the growth of harmful
bacteria. Be sure that the oven light is off because heat
from the bulb will speed harmful bacteria growth.
A fan may automatically turn on and off to cool
internal parts. This is normal, and the fan may
continue to run after the oven is turned off.
