Setting Oven Controls
Convection Bake uses a fan to circulate the oven heat evenly
and continuously. The improved heat distribution allows for
even cooking with excellent results. Multiple rack cooking
may slightly increase cool< times for some foods_ but the
overall result is time saved.
The Conv Bake feature should ONLY be used when your
recipe instructions have been written for use with convection
If your recipe instructions are for normal baking and
you wish to use convection bake, follow the Convection
Convert option instructions. The convection convert option
will automatically adjust the oven temperature so that
convection baking may provide the best possible results.
Conv Baize may be set with the following options:
" Conv Convert
° Cook Time and/or Delay Start
Benefits of convection bake:
° Superior multiple oven rack performance.
° Some foods cook up 25 to 30% faster° saving time and
° No special pans or bakeware required.
For best results
° When baking with a single rack use rack positions 2 or 3.
When using 2 racks use rack positions 2 & 4. When using
3 racks use rack positions 1, 3 & 4.
° Cookies and biscuits should be baked on pans with no
sides or very low side to allow heated air to circulate
around the food.
Food baked on pans with a dark finish will cook faster.
When placing multiple food items in the oven allow 2-4"
(5-10cm) of space between the food items for proper air
