Preheating of the oven is programmed in some automatic
convection and/or combination cycles. Preheating may be
skipped after it has started by touching “Skip Preheat” on the
touch screen.
Preheating of the Sizzle Pan is programmed in many automatic
cooking cycles. This preheating phase may also be skipped by
touching “Skip Preheat.”
For optimum results, we recommend completing the preheating
phase of each cycle in which preheating is programmed.
However, preheating of the oven would not be necessary when
baking consecutive batches, such as cookies, as the oven would
already be hot.
Doneness for food items may be adjusted for most automatic
cycles. Before starting a cycle, touch “Doneness” on the touch
screen, and adjust the doneness with “+” (more done) or “-” (less
done) controls. The “+” control adds to, and the “-” control
subtracts from the recommended default cook time.
The more done and less done settings in most foods for which
doneness may be adjusted are equal. That is, the same amount
of time may be added to or subtracted from the cycle. Some of
the Meat and Poultry cycle have only the more done settings.

Popcorn Sensor
Popcorn is a sensor function. The sensor determines the
appropriate popping time of commercially packaged
microwavable popcorn.
The sensor will determine accurate popping times for bag sizes:
3.5 oz (99 g), 3.0 oz (85 g) or 1.75 oz (50 g). For bag sizes not
listed in this section, follow package directions.
Do not place bag on convection rack or grill rack.
Do not use regular paper bags or glassware.
Pop only 1 package of popcorn at a time.
Follow manufacturer’s instructions when using a microwave
popcorn popper.
Listen for popping to slow to 1 pop every 1 to 2 seconds,
then stop the cycle. Do not try to pop unpopped kernels.
Use fresh bags of popcorn for optimal results.
Cooking results may vary by brand and fat content.
To Use Popcorn Sensor:
1. Place popcorn bag on the turntable and close the door.
2. Touch POPCORN SENSOR control.
The oven will start automatically. The display will show when
the oven is sensing, and will start counting down the time
when sensing has finished.
When the cycle ends, the end-of-cycle tones will sound,
followed by reminder tones.
3. Touch CANCEL control or open the door to stop reminder
tones. The display will return to the Main Menu after CANCEL
control is touched.
