Before Using Your Convection Toaster Oven Read all of the instructions included in this manual. Make sure that the oven is unplugged and the time control is in the “OFF” position. Wash all the accessories in hot, soapy water or in the dishwasher. Thoroughly dry all accessories and re-assemble in oven. Plug oven into outlet and you are ready to use your new Toaster Oven with Convection. After re-assembling your oven, we recommend that you run it at the highest temperature (4500 F.) on the toast function for approximately 15 minutes to eliminate any packing residue that may remain after shipping. This will also remove all traces of odor initially present. Using Your Convection Toaster Oven • Power “On” Light It is illuminated whenever the oven is turned on. • Bake Tray – For toasting, baking and general cooking for casserole dishes and standard pans. Used also for broiler drip pan to prevent spattering that could result in smoke and flare ups. • Broiler Tray – For use in broiling and roasting meat, poultry, fish and various other foods. ups. • Tray Handle – Allows you to pick up the bake rack, drip pan and broiler rack when they are hot. • Pizza Stone Heats evenly, absorbs moisture and cooks without fats, making each dish a success. WARNING: TO AVOID RISK OF INJURY Please Note: Initial start-up operation may result in minimal smell and smoke (about 15 minutes). This is normal and harmless. It is due to burning of the protective substance applied to the heating elements in the factory. Convection Cooking Convection cooking combines hot air movement by means of a fan with the regular features (broil, bake and toast). Convection cooking provides faster cooking in many cases than regular radiant types toaster ovens. The fan gently sends air to every area of the food, quickly browning, crisping and sealing in moisture and flavor. It produces more even temperature all around the food by air movement, so that food cooks/bakes/broils evenly versus the normal ovens hot and cold spots. The convection feature allows cooking/baking at lower temperatures, which saves energy and helps keep the kitchen cooler. Convection air is superheated and it circulates around the food so it cooks food significantly faster than conventional ovens. Using Your Convection Toaster Oven Please familiarize yourself with the following oven functions and accessories prior to first use: • Temperature Control – Choose the desired temperature from 1800 (Keep Warm) to 4500 F for baking, broiling, toasting or grilling. • Function Control This oven is equipped with five positions for a variety of cooking needs: Bake wlConvection Cakes, pies, cookies, poultry, beef, pork, etc. Toast w/ Convection – Bread, muffins, frozen waffles, etc. Grill – For grilling fish, steak, sandwiches, bacon & eggs, etc. Broil WI Convection For broiling fish, steak, poultry, pork chops, etc. Keep Warm To keep cooked food warm for up to 30 minutes. • Time Control – When you turn the control to the left, (counter-clockwise), the oven will “STAY ON” until it is manually shut “OFF”. To activate the timer segment of the control, turn to the right (clockwise) to toast or use as a timer. This function also has a bell that rings at the end of the programmed time. • Convection Fan – The convection fan works automatically on Broil, Bake and Toast settings. 3 Caution: OR BURNS, DO NOT TOUCH HOT SURFACES WHEN OVEN IS IN USE. ALWAYS USE OVEN MITTS. Always use extreme care when removing broiler tray, bake tray cookie sheet, pizza stone or any hot container from a hot oven. Always use the tray handle, or an oven mitt when removing hot items from the oven. 4

****** Page 4 ****** Broiling with Convection The top heating elements cycle on and off to maintain maximum temperature in the oven. For best results, the oven should be preheated for 20 minutes at 4500 before adding the food to be broiled. In the convection oven, it is not necessary to turn the food because the fan circulates the hot air around the food. The food must be placed on the broiling rack fitted into the drip pan to allow the circulation of air. Operation • Set Temperature Control to 4500F. • Turn Function Control to Broil/Convection. • Preheat the oven. • Place the broiler rack on the drip pan. • Place the food on the broiler rack and slide into the top rack support guide or middle rack support guide depending on the thickness of the food that you are cooking. • Food should be placed as close as possible to the top heating element without touching it. • Set temperature control to the appropriate temperature. • Brush food with sauces or oil, as desired. • Turn Time Control to position “Stay On” • It is advisable to leave the door slightly ajar. • When broiling is complete, turn the time control to “OFF”. Broilinq Guide Cooking results may vary, adjust these times to your individual requirements. Also, check often during broiling to avoid overcooking.

Note: All broiling times are based on meats at refrigerator temperature. Frozen meats may take considerably longer. Therefore, use of a meat thermometer is highly recommended. 5 Baking with Convection Convection baking is very consistent and even. The oven heats quickly, so preheating is not necessary or desirable. The fan circulates the hot air around the food making baked goods rise quickly and evenly. Bake your favorite cookies, cakes, pies, brownies, etc. The bakeware that will fit in your oven are up to 9 inches in length. We do not recommend the use of oven roasting bags or glass containers in the oven. Never use plastic, cardboard, paper or anything similar in the oven. Note: Position the bake rack in the lowest support guide.

Bakinq On 2 Racks • Two racks of cookies can be baked at the same time, however it is necessary to rotate them (i.e. move the top to the bottom and the bottom to the top) halfway through the cooking time. Positioninq of the Bake Racks Cookies – Use bottom and middle support guides. Layer Cakes – Use bottom support guide only (bake one at a time). Pies – Use bottom support guide. Bakinq Cookies For baking cookies, we suggest adjusting baking temperature and using the cookie sheets placed on the baking racks. Also, using parchment paper on the cookie sheets might prove helpful when baking certain types of cookies. Use parchment paper on cookie sheets so cookies will not stick. 2. Cookie sheets, baking times and temperatures may differ from those necessary when using other baking materials. Note: Convection air is superheated and it circulates around the food, so it cooks food faster. When baking your favorite recipes or packaged goods, follow recipe instructions. Check the baked goods a few minutes before the shortest recommended baking time. Bakinq Guide Follow the package or recipe instructions for baking times and temperature. 6

****** Page 5 ****** Toasting with Convection Large capacity oven allows for toasting 4 to 6 slices of bread, 6 muffins, frozen waffles or frozen pancakes.

Operation Preheat oven for 15 minutes on 4500F Turn the Function Control to Toast/Convection. Set Timer Control to “ON” position. Then lower temperature according to baking instructions. Place pizza stone on the bake rack and begin baking. Do not use oil or other fats on the pizza stone. You can add a light dusting of flour so that dough will not stick to pizza stone. Pizza stone baking times and temperature may differ from those necessary when using other baking pans. When pizza is ready, turn the Time Control to “OFF” position. For cleaning, residues can be eliminated from pizza stone using a spatula or a knife. For deeper cleaning, heat pizza stone in the oven, brush it with a scouring pad (do not use detergents) and rinse well with hot water.
