Do not use kitchen utensils to pull on the probe cable or
handles. Always insert and remove the probe using the
provided handles, as shown in Figure 27, and always use
a pot holder to protect hands from possible burns.
Use the probe feature for best results when cooking foods
such as roasts, hams or poultry.
For meats like poultry and roasts, using a probe to check
internal temperature is the safest method to ensure properly
The probe feature, when set correctly, will signal an alert
when the internal food temperature reaches the desired set
When active, the probe displays the internal food tempera-

process. This eliminates any guesswork or the need to
open the oven door to check the thermometer.

original probe provided. Connecting any other probe
or device could result in damage to the oven control,
electronics, and the receptacle.
Before starting self clean, double check that the probe
