Do not lock the oven door with the latch during baking or roasting. The latch is used for self-cleaningonly.

The oven has a special low shelf (R) position just above the oven bottom. Use it when extra cooking space is needed, for example, when cooking a large turkey. The shelf is not designed to slide out at this position.

How to Set the Oven for Baking or Roasting

Your oven is not designed for open-doorcooking.

Touch the BAKE pad.

Touch the + orpads until the desired temperature is displayed.

Touch the START/ON pad.

The oven will start automatically. The display will show PRE while preheating. When the oven reaches the selected temperature, the oven control will beep several times and the display will show the oven temperature.

To change the oven temperature during BAKE cycle, touch the BAKE pad and then the+ orpads to get the new temperature.

Check food for doneness at minimum time on recipe. Cook longer if necessary.

Touch the CLEAR/OFF pad when baking is finished and then remove the food from the oven.

Preheating and Pan Placement

Preheat the oven if the recipe calls for it. To preheat, set the oven at the correct temperature. Preheating is necessary for good results when baking cakes, cookies, pastry and breads.

For ovens without a preheat indicator light or tone, preheat 10 minutes.

Baking results will be better if baking pans are centered in the oven as much as possible. Pans should not touch each other or the walls of the oven. If you need to use two shelves, stagger the pans so one is not directly above the other, and leave approximately 112between pans, from the front, back and sides of the wall.

grid and cut slits in it just like the grid.

Aluminum foil may also be used to catch a spillover. To do so, place a small sheet of foil on a lower shelf several inches below the food.

Never entirely cover a shelf with aluminum foil. This will disturb the heat circulation and result in poor baking.

Oven Moisture

As your oven heats up, the temperature change of the air in the oven may cause water droplets to form on the door glass. These droplets are harmless and will evaporate as the oven continues to heat up.

Using the oven.

Do not lock the oven door with the latch during broiling. The latch is used for self-cleaningonly.

How to Set the Oven for Broiling

Always use the broiler pan and grid that came with your oven. It is designed to minimize smoking and spattering by trapping juices in the shielded lower part of the pan.

Place the meat or fish on the broiler grid in the broiler pan.

Follow suggested shelf positions in the

Broiling Guide.

The oven door must be closed during broiling.

Touch the BROIL HI/LO pad once for

HI Broil.

To change to LO Broil, touch the

BROIL HI/LO pad again.

Touch the START/ON pad.

When broiling is finished, touch the

CLEAR/OFF pad.

Serve the food immediately, and leave the pan outside the oven to cool during the meal for easiest cleaning.

Use LO Broil to cook foods such as poultry or thick cuts of meat thoroughly withoutover-browningthem.

The size, weight, thickness, starting temperature and your preference of doneness will affect broiling times. This guide is based on meats at refrigerator temperature.

†The U.S. Department of Agriculture says “Rare beef is popular, but you should know that cooking it to only 140°F means some food poisoning organisms may survive.” (Source: Safe Food Book, Your Kitchen Guide, USDA Rev. June 1985.)

The oven has 5 shelf positions.

Adjust the oven thermostat—Doit yourself!

www.GEAppliances.com

You may find that your new oven cooks differently than the one it replaced. Use your new oven for a few weeks to become more familiar with it. If you still think your new oven is too hot or too cold, you can adjust the thermostat yourself.

Do not use thermometers, such as those found in grocery stores, to check the temperature setting of your oven. These thermometers may vary 20–40degrees.

NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling or theself-cleaningtemperatures. The adjustment will be retained in memory after a power failure.

To Adjust the Thermostat

Touch the BAKEand BROIL HI/LOpads at the same time for 2 seconds until the display shows SF.

Touch the BAKE pad. A two digit number shows in the display.

The oven temperature can be adjusted up to (+) 35°F hotter or (–)35°F cooler. Touch the+ pad to increase the temperature in 1 degree increments.

Touch the pad to decrease the temperature in 1 degree increments.

When you have made the adjustment, touch the START/ON pad to go back to the time of day display. Use your oven as you would normally.

NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling orself-cleaningtemperatures. It will be retained in memory after a power failure.

The type of margarine will affect baking performance!

Most recipes for baking have been developed using high fat products such as butter or margarine (80% fat). If you decrease the fat, the recipe may not give the same results as with a higher fat product.

Recipe failure can result if cakes, pies, pastries, cookies or candies are made with low fat spreads. The lower the fat content of a spread product, the more noticeable these differences become.

Federal standards require products labeled “margarine” to contain at least 80% fat by weight. Low fat spreads, on the other hand, contain less fat and more water. The high moisture content of these spreads affects the texture and flavor of baked goods. For best results with your old favorite recipes, use margarine, butter or stick spreads containing at least 70% vegetable oil.
