Cooking Guide

The settings in the following chart are guidelines only. Follow the instructions in your recipe or on packaging and be prepared to adjust the oven settings and baking times to achieve the best possible results for you.

  • Shelf positions are counted from the oven floor up (1 is the lowest, 5 is the highest). Arrange oven shelves before you turn the oven on, then preheat the oven to the desired temperature.
  • Single shelf positions below use the flat oven shelf; where a multi-shelf arrangement is recommended, the lower position uses the step-down shelf.
  • Due to the width of the oven, a single shelf can usually accommodate double the standard recipe.
  • Always preheat the oven before baking.
  • Do not place anything, including water or ice, on the oven floor.
  • Keep the door completely shut when grilling foods.
  • Do not open the door during the first 3/4 of baking time.
