Cooking charts

Lists the reccomended temperature, function, time, and shelf position based on what food item you are using for baking, roasting, or grilling.
  • Shelf positions are counted from the base up (1 is the lowest, 6 is the highest).
    Position shelves before you turn the oven on.
  • For best results always preheat the oven to the required temperature.
  • The grill element may come on while the oven is heating up.
  • The temperature indicator light will go out when the oven has reached the selected temperature.

Oven accessories may temporarily deform slightly when they become hot. This is normal and does not affect their function.
