Setting the Warmer (Warm & Ready™) Zone (some models)
The purpose of the Warmer Zone is to keep hot cooked foods at serving
temperature. Always start with hot food. It is not recommended to heat cold food
on the Warmer Zone.
All food placed on the Warmer Zone should be covered with a lid or aluminum
foil to maintain quality. For best results, when warming pastries or breads, the
cover should have an opening to allow moisture to escape. Do not use plastic
wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto the surface and be very difficult
to clean.
Use only dishware, utensils and cookware recommended for oven and cooktop
use on the Warmer Zone.
