Cooking charts

  • Shelf positions are counted from the base up (1 is the lowest, 6 is the highest), or 4 for compact Ovens is the highest.  Position shelves before you turn the oven on.
  • For best results 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: Oven accessories may temporarily deform when they become hot, this is Normal and does not affect their function.

The information in these charts are guidelines only. Refer to your recipe or the packaging and be prepared to adjust the cooking times and settings accordingly.
