Setting Oven Controls
Setting the Slow Cook Feature
The _ SLOW COOK pad is used to activate this feature. The Slow Cook feature may be used to cook foods
slowly, at lower oven temperatures and provides cooking results much the same way as a Slow Cooker or Crock-Pot. The
Slow Cook feature is ideal for roasting beef, pork & poultry. Slow Cooking meats may result in the exterior of meats
becoming dark but not burnt. This is normal.
There are 2 settings available, high (HI) or low (LO). The maximum cook time for the Slow Cook feature is 12 hours unless
the oven control has been changed to the Continuous Bake mode or the Sabbath mode has been activated.This feature
may be used with the additional settings of a Timed Bake Slow Cook (see Timed Bake beginning with step 5-7) or a
Delayed Start Bake Slow Cook (see Delayed Start Bake steps 6-10).
Below is a list of preparation and cooking tips you should review for best possible results using Slow Cook:
Completely thaw all frozen foods before cooking with the Slow Cook feature.
When using a single rack, place in position 2 or3 (see figure 2 on page 16).
Position multiple racks to accommodate size of cooking utensils when cooking multiple food items.
Do not open the oven door often or leave the door open when checking foods. If the oven heat escapes often, the
Slow Cook time may need to be extended.
Cover the foods to keep them moist or use a loose or vented type cover to allow foods to turn crisp or brown.
Cook times will vary; depending on the weight, fat content, bone & the shape of the meat.
Use the recipe's recommended food temperature and a food thermometer to determine when the food is done.
Preheating the oven will not be necessary when using the Slow Cook feature.
Add any cream or cheese sauces during the last hour of cooking.
