Cooking Charts

 

 

  • Shelf positions are counted from the base up. (1 is the lowest, 6 (full size ovens) or 4 (compact ovens) 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.
Note-Icon.png Oven accessories may temporarily deform slightly when they become hot. This is normal and does not affect their function.
