Cooking Tips

Use these additional tips to get the best results from your appliance.

Cooking Tips

Baking

Rack placement Follow the instructions in “Setting Oven Controls” on starting on page 22.

When using only one rack. place the rack so the food is in the center of the oven.

Preheat Fully preheat the oven before baking items like cookies. cakes. biscuits and breads. Insert food immediately after the beep.

Checking food Use the window and oven light when checking food. Opening the door may reduce baking perfor mance.

Bake or Convec tion Bake Convection bake is the best function to use for baking on multiple racks. For best performance. see “Convection Bake” on page 18.

COOKING RECOMMENDATIONS

Food placement Allow at least 2 inches (5 cm) of space between bakeware for proper air circulation.

Broiling / Roasting

Broiling pan For best results when broiling. use a broil pan with a broil pan insert designed to drain the fat from the food. help avoid spatter. and reduce smoking. The broiler pan will catch grease spills. and the insert helps prevent grease splatters.

If a broiler pan and insert are not supplied with this appliance. they may be purchased from Frigid aire.com.

Convection Cooking

Convection attributes Convection cooking uses a fan to circulate hot air around the oven and food. It browns food more evenly and reduces hot spots in the oven.

Convection saves time when using multiple racks or cooking several food items at once.

Convection bake Reduce cooking temperature by 25° F (13-14° C) from the recipe unless the recipe is written for convection baking.

Preheat the oven for best results.

Convection broil Reducing the cooking temperature for convection broil is not recommended.

Broiling is direct heat cooking and will produce some smoke. If smoke is excessive. move the food farther from the broiler element.

Convection roast Convection roast is best for meats and does not require preheating for most meats and poultry.

Reducing the cooking temperature for convection roast is not recommended. Carefully follow your recipe’s temperature and time recommendations. adjusting the cooking time if the recipe does not specify convection roasting time.

Since convection roast cooks faster. cook time may be reduced by 25% to 40% depending on food type. You can reduce cook times by 25% from the recommended time of your recipe. and check the food at this time. If needed. continue cooking until the desired doneness is obtained.

Use a meat probe if available with your appliance. Meat probes are also available from most grocery and home goods stores.

Arrange oven racks so large cuts of meat and poultry are on the lowest rack of the oven.

Do not cover foods when dry roasting - covering will prevent the meat from browning properly.

When cooking meats. use the broiler pan and insert or a roasting rack. The broiler pan will catch grease spills and the insert helps prevent grease splatters. If you do not have one of these accesso ries. they may be purchased from Frigidaire.com.

Cooking Tips

Using Proper Cookware

The size and type of cookware used will influence the heat setting needed for best cooking results. Be sure to follow the recommendations for using proper cookware as illus trated in Figure 1 and Figure 2.

Cookware Material Types

The cookware material determines how evenly and quickly heat is transferred from the surface element to the pan bottom. The most popular materials available are:

Aluminum - Excellent heat conductor. Some types of food will cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum cookware resists staining and pitting). If aluminum pans slide across the ceramic cooktop. they may leave metal marks which will resemble scratches. Remove these marks immediately.

Copper - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily (see Aluminum).

Stainless - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking results. Is durable. easy to clean and resists staining.

Cast Iron - A slow heat conductor that will retain heat very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is reached. If cast iron pans slide across the ceramic cooktop. they may leave metal marks which will resemble scratches. Remove these marks immediately.

Porcelain-enamel on metal - Heating characteristics will vary depending on base material. Porcelain-enamel coating must be smooth to avoid scratching ceramic cooktops.

Glass - Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for ceramic cooktop surfaces because it may scratch the glass.

Check for flatness by rotat ing a ruler across the bottom of the cookware (see Figure 1). Cookware should have flat bottoms that make good contact with the entire surface heating element (see Figure 2).

Figure 1: Testing cookware

Figure 2: Proper cookware

• Flat bottom and straight sides.

• Tight fitting lids.

• Weight of handle does not tilt pan. Pan is well balanced.

• Pan sizes match the amount of food to be prepared and the size of the surface element.

• Made of material that conducts heat well.

• Easy to clean.

• Always match pot diameter to element size.

• Curved and warped pans.

• Cookware larger than cooking area marked on cooktop by more than one-half inch or 12mm.

• Heavy handle tilts pan.

• Pan is smaller than the heating area marked on cooktop.

Do not place empty aluminum. glass. or porcelain-enamel coated cookware on the ceramic cooktop. The melting point of cookware made with these materials may be reached quickly. especially if left empty. and they may bond to the ceramic cooktop. If the cookware melts it will damage the cooktop. Follow all the cookware manufac turer’s recommendations for use and care of cookware.

About the Ceramic Glass Cooktop

The ceramic glass cooktop has heating elements below a smooth glass surface. The designs on the ceramic cooktop outline the areas of the surface elements underneath.

Always match the pan size with the diameter of the element outline on the cooktop. Only flat-bottomed cookware should be used.

Prior to using your cooktop for the first time. apply a ceramic cooktop cleaning cream (available in most hardware. grocery and department stores) to the ceramic surface. Clean and buff with a clean paper towel. This will make cleaning easier when soiled from cooking. Cooktop cleaning creams leave a protective finish on the glass to help prevent scratches and abrasions.

The type and size of cookware. the number of surface elements in use. and their settings will all affect the amount of heat that will spread to areas beyond the surface elements. The areas surrounding the elements may become hot enough to cause burns.

About the Radiant Surface Elements

The element temperature rises gradually and evenly. As the temperature rises. the element will glow red. To maintain the selected setting the element will cycle on and off. The heating element retains enough heat to provide a uniform and consistent heat during the off cycle.

For efficient cooking. turn the element off several minutes before cooking is complete. This will allow residual heat to complete the cooking process.

The cooktop should not be used as a cutting board or work surface.

Dropping heavy or hard objects on the cooktop may crack it.

Placing food directly on the smoothtop surface (without a cooking utensil) is not recommended. as difficult cleaning will result. and foods may smoke and cause potential fire hazard.

Always lift cookware before moving on the ceramic glass cooktop. Any cookware that has a rough or dirty bottom can scratch the ceramic cooktop. Always start with clean cookware.

White glass cooktops only - Due to the high intensity of heat generated by the surface elements. the glass surface may discolor when the element is turned off. This is normal and the glass will return to its original white color after it has completely cooled down.

IMPORTANT

NOTE

Surface elements may appear to have cooled after they have been turned off. The element surface may still be hot. and burns may occur if the element or surrounding area is touched before it has cooled to a safe temperature.

Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt and pepper shakers. spoon holders. or plastic wrapping on top of the range when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite. Potholders. towels. or wooden spoons could catch fire if placed too close to the surface elements.

Do not allow aluminum foil. or any material that can melt. to make contact with the ceramic glass cooktop.

If these items melt on the cooktop. they will damage the ceramic cooktop.

Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the element to cycle on and off. even at the HI setting. This helps to prevent damage to the ceramic smooth top. Cycling at the HI setting is normal and can occur if the cookware is too small for the radiant element or if the cookware bottom is not flat.

Be sure to read detailed instructions for ceramic glass cooktop cleaning in the “Care and Cleaning” section and “Before You Call” checklist section of this Use and Care Guide.

CAUTION

NOTE

BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS

Element On and Hot Surface Indicator Lights

The ELEMENT ON indicator light will turn on when one or more elements are turned on.

A quick glance at this indicator light when cooking is finished is an easy check to be sure all surface elements are turned off.

The HOT SURFACE indicator light will turn on when the burner is hot enough to cause burns and will remain on after the burner is turned off until the surface has cooled to a safe temperature.

Types of ceramic cooktop elements

The circles on the ceramic glass cooktop outline the size and type of element underneath. The elements on your cooktop depend on the model.

A single radiant element has one circle.

A dual radiant element (some models) has two circles.

The dual radiant element may be set using only the smaller inner element or both inner and outer elements may be set to heat together for a larger surface.

Dual elements allow more flexibility with the size of cookware.

A keep warm element (some models) has one small circle. It is used to keep food warm after cooking. The keep warm element is not designed to cook food.

A bridge element (some models) creates a long heating area between two single elements. The bridge element is designed for use with a griddle accessory.

SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS

Using the bridge element with a griddle (some models)

A griddle is a versatile accessory that is perfect for cooking foods that require large flat surfaces such as pancakes.

French toast. grilled sandwiches. bacon. and also for cooking different foods at the same time.

If your appliance came with a griddle you can use this accessory to cook by using the bridge control that links the circular elements. This will provide even heating over the entire griddle surface when the rear single element is also activated.

Preheat the griddle for 5 minutes on medium to medium low setting. Slow preheat ensures even heat distribution during the cooking process. DO NOT preheat the griddle on HI setting. Preheating on HI may warp the griddle and prevent even heat distribution.

After use. let the griddle cool before washing. Hand wash with hot soapy water. Do not soak. Dry thoroughly. Do not put a griddle in a dishwasher.

If you would like to purchase a griddle. you can order one from Frigidaire.com.

Important notes:

Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and then turn to a lower setting to finish cooking.

For efficient cooking. turn the element off several minutes before cooking is complete. This will allow residual heat to complete the cooking process.

The surface control knobs do not have to be set exactly on a particular spot. Use the graphics provided as a guide and adjust the control knob as needed. Each surface element provides a constant amount of heat at each setting.

Figure 10: Griddle

The griddle should be placed carefully over the bridge elements. When the bridge control is activated along with the rear single element. they combine to heat the whole surface of the griddle.

The griddle will be very hot. Always use oven mitts when handling the griddle during and after cooking.

The griddle may appear to have cooled. but the residual heat can cause burns. Allow the griddle to cool for several minutes after the bridge has been turned off.

Use the keep warm feature to keep cooked foods hot.

Always start with hot food. It is not recommended to heat cold food on the keep warm zone. All food placed on the warming zone should be covered with a lid to maintain quality.

For best results. when warming pastries or breads. the cover should have an opening to allow moisture to escape.

Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto the surface and be very difficult to clean. Use only dishware. utensils. and cookware recommended for oven and cooktop use on the keep warm zone.

Setting the keep warm control:

Push in the knob and turn in either direction (see Figure 11). The temperatures are designated by hi and lo. However. the control can be set at any position between hi and lo for different levels of warming.

When ready to serve. turn the control to OFF. The hot surface indicator light will remain on until the warm zone cools.

Temperature selection - Refer to the recommended keep warm zone settings table (see Table 2). If a particular food is not listed. start with the medium level and adjust as needed. Most foods can be kept at serving temperatures by using the medium level.

Unlike the surface elements. the keep warm zone will not glow red when it is hot. To avoid burns always use potholders or oven mitts when removing food from the cooktop. including the keep warm zone. as cookware and plates will be hot.

Radiant surface elements may appear to have cooled after they have been turned off. The glass surface may still be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is touched before it has cooled sufficiently.

Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt and pepper shakers. spoon holders. or plastic wrappings on the cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite. Potholders. towels. or wooden spoons could catch fire if placed too close to the surface elements.

Home Canning

Be sure to read and observe all the following points when home canning with your appliance. Check with the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) Web site and be sure to read all the information they have available as well as follow their recommendations for home canning proce dures.

Use only a completely flat bottom canner with no ridges that radiate from the bottom center when home canning. Heat is spread more evenly when the bottom surface is flat. Use a straight-edge to check canner bottom.

Make sure the diameter of the canner does not exceed 1 inch beyond the surface element markings or burner.

It is recommended to use smaller diameter canners on electric coil and ceramic glass cooktops and to center canners on the burner grates.

Start with hot tap water to bring water to boil more quickly.

Use the highest heat seating when first bringing the water to a boil. Once boiling is achieved. reduce heat to lowest possible setting to maintain that boil.

Use tested recipes and follow instructions carefully.

Check with your local Cooperative Agricultural Extension Service or a manufacturer of glass jars for the latest canning information.

It is best to can small amounts and light loads.

Do not leave water bath or pressure canners on high heat for an extended amount of time.

Oven Vent Location

The oven is vented as shown below. When the oven is on. warm air is released through the vent. This venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and good baking results. Do not block oven vent. Never close off the openings with aluminium foil or any other material. Steam or moisture may appear near the oven vent. This is normal.

Types of oven racks

Flat oven racks may be used for most cooking needs and may be placed in most oven rack positions.

The offset oven rack (some models) provides addi tional step down positions from the standard flat rack design. The offset design positions the base of the rack about ½ of a rack position lower than the flat rack and may be used in most oven rack positions. To maximize oven cooking space. place the bottom oven rack in the lowest rack position for baking or roasting large cuts of meat.

Removing. replacing. and arranging flat or offset oven racks

Always arrange the oven racks when the oven is cool.

To remove - Pull the oven rack straight forward until it reaches the stop position. Lift up front of oven rack slightly and slide out.

To replace - Place the oven rack on the rack guides on both sides of oven walls. Tilt the front of oven rack upward slightly and slide the oven rack back into place. Be sure oven racks are level before using.

Figure 12: Oven vent

Protective Liners — Do not use aluminum foil or any other material or liners to line the oven bottom. walls. racks or any other part of the range. Doing so will alter the heat distribution. produce poor baking results. and possibly cause permanent damage to the oven interior.

Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric shock or fire. During self clean. temperatures in the oven will be hot enough to melt foil.

Always use pot holders or oven mitts when using the oven. When cooking. the oven interior. oven exterior. oven racks. and cooktop will become very hot which can cause burns.

Remove all oven racks before starting a self clean cycle. If oven racks are left inside the oven during a cleaning cycle. the slide ability of the oven racks may be damaged and all of the oven racks will lose their shiny finish.

To prevent possible damage to the oven. do not attempt to close the oven door until all the oven racks are fully positioned back inside the oven cavity.

Self Clean

A self cleaning oven cleans itself with temperatures well above normal cooking temperatures which eliminate soils completely or reduces them to a fine powdered ash you can wipe away with a damp cloth.

While the oven is in operation. the oven heats to tempera ture much higher than those used in normal cooking.

Sounds of metal expansion and contraction are normal.

Odor is also normal because the food soil is being removed.

Smoke may appear through the oven vent.

During the self cleaning cycle. the outside of the range can become very hot to the touch. Do not leave small children unattended near the appliance.

To avoid possible burns. use care when opening the oven door after the self cleaning cycle. Stand to the side of the oven when opening the door to allow hot air or steam to escape.

Do not line the oven walls. racks. bottom. or any other part of the range with aluminum foil. Doing so will destroy heat distribution. produce poor baking results. and cause permanent damage to the oven interior (aluminum foil will melt to the interior surface of the oven).

The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during the self cleaning cycle of any range. Move birds to another well-ventilated room.

Do not force the oven door open. This can damage the automatic door locking system. Use caution when opening the door after the self cleaning cycle is complete.

The oven may still be very hot.

Figure 21: Clean around the oven door gasket

CAUTION

Adhere to the following self clean precautions:

Do not use oven cleaners or oven protective coatings in or around any part of the oven interior.

Do not clean the oven door gasket (Figure 21). The woven material of the oven door gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub. damage. or remove the gasket.

Do not use any cleaning materials on the oven door gasket. Doing so could cause damage.

Remove the broiler pan and insert. all utensils. and any aluminum foil. These items cannot withstand high cleaning temperatures and will melt.

Completely remove all oven racks and any accesso ries. If the oven racks are not removed. they will lose their special coating properties and no longer slide in and out of the oven cavity easily.

Remove any excessive spills. Any spills on the oven bottom should be wiped-up and removed before starting the self cleaning cycle. To clean. use hot. soapy water and a cloth. Large spills can cause heavy smoke or fire when subjected to high tempera tures.

Do not allow food spills with a high sugar or acid content (such as milk. tomatoes. sauerkraut. fruit juices. or pie filling) to remain on the surface as they may leave a dull spot even after cleaning.

Clean any soil from the oven frame. the door liner outside the oven door gasket. and the small area at the front center of the oven bottom. These areas heat sufficiently to burn soil on. Clean with soap and water.

These areas are shown in white (Figure 21).

Ceramic cooktop See “Cooktop Maintenance” on page 37.

CARE AND CLEANING

Cooktop Maintenance

Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining your ceramic glass cooktop.

Prior to using your cooktop for the first time. apply a ceramic cooktop cleaning cream (available in most hardware. grocery. and department stores) to the ceramic surface. Clean and buff with a clean paper towel. This will make cleaning easier when soiled from cooking. Cooktop cleaning creams leave a protective finish on the glass to help prevent scratches and abrasions.

Sliding aluminum. cast iron. or copper bottomed pans on the cooktop can cause metal markings on the cooktop surface. These marks should be removed immediately after the cooktop has cooled using cooktop cleaning cream.

Metal marks can become permanent if not removed prior to future use.

Cookware (cast iron. metal. ceramic. or glass) with rough bottoms can mark or scratch the cooktop surface.

Do not:

Slide anything metal or glass across the cooktop.

Use cookware with dirt or dirt build up on the bottom; always use clean cookware.

Use your cooktop as a cutting board or work surface in the kitchen.

Cook foods directly on the cooktop surface without a pan.

Drop heavy or hard objects on the ceramic glass cooktop; they may cause it to crack.

Cooktop Cleaning

For light to moderate soil:

For light to moderate soil: Apply a few drops of cooktop cleaning cream directly to the cooktop. Use a clean paper towel to clean the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop is cleaned thoroughly. leaving no residue. Do not use the towel you use to clean the cooktop for any other purpose.

For heavy. burned on soil:

Apply a few drops of cooktop cleaning cream directly to the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a non-abrasive cleaning tool. applying pressure as needed. Do not use the pad you use to clean the cooktop for any other purpose.

If soils remain. carefully scrape soils with a metal razor blade scraper. holding scraper at a 30 degree angle to the surface. Remove loosened soils with cooktop cleaning cream and buff the surface clean.

Figure 25: Cooktop care

Do not use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop. The fumes can be hazardous to your health. and can chemi cally damage the ceramic-glass surface.

Before cleaning the cooktop. be sure the controls are turned to OFF and the cooktop is cool. The glass surface could be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is touched before it has cooled sufficiently.

CARE AND CLEANING

Cooktop Maintenance (cont’d)

Aluminum Foil and Utensils

Cleaning under bake element (some models)

The bake element is located in the lower oven cavity. For some models. if the lower bake element is visible it may be tilted up for easier access to the oven bottom for cleaning.

Remove the oven racks before raising the element. Be careful not to raise the element more than 4 or 5 inches from the resting position.

Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur if you use an abrasive type cleaning pad. Only use cleaning products that have been specifically designed for ceramic glass cooktops.

Never cover any slots. holes. or passages in the oven bottom or cover an entire oven rack with materials such as aluminum foil. Aluminum foil linings may trap heat. causing a fire hazard.

Protective Liners — Do not use aluminum foil to line the oven bottom. Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric shock or fire.

Aluminum foil - Use of aluminum foil on a hot cooktop can damage the cooktop. Do not use thin aluminum cooking utensils or allow aluminum foil to touch the surface elements under any circumstances.

Aluminum utensils - The melting point of aluminum is much lower than that of other metals. Care must be taken when aluminum pots or pans are used on the cooktop. If aluminum pans are allowed to boil dry when using the cooktop. not only will the utensil be damaged or destroyed. but it may fuse to. break. or mark the ceramic glass surface. permanently damaging the cooktop surface.
