to cook continuously, see “Changing between continuous bake
setting or 12-Hour Energy Saving feature” on page 9.
Baking Tips:
Preheat your oven before using the bake mode.
During preheat, the three elements and the convection fan
are used in cycle to quickly heat the oven.
Use only one rack and center the pans as much as possible
on rack 2 or 3.
If using two racks, place the oven racks in positions 2 and 4.
Allow 2” to 4” (5,1 to 10,2cm) around the bakeware for
proper air circulation.
Be sure the pans do not touch each other, the door, sides or
back of the oven
Baking layer cakes with 1 or 2 oven racks:
For best baking results when baking cakes or cookies using 2
oven racks, place bakeware in rack positions 3 and 5 (for rack 5
use the offset rack if provided).
