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.
  • 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 broiling foods.
  • Do not open the door during the first 3/4 of baking time.

Always cook and broil with the oven door fully closed.
If the door stays open “door” flashes on the display and after some minutes an audible warning sounds for about 30 seconds.
To silence the beep press any button.

The heating elements work even with the door open and this signal just indicates that energy is being wasted and the control panel/dials are being excessively heated.
