General Tips:

  • The Wolf Gourmet Countertop Oven has several cooking modes designed for optimal performance and results.
  • It is possible to use multiple racks for cooking if desired.

Baking and Roasting Tips:

  • Center food in the oven. Rack position will vary depending on the size of the food.
  • Bake mode provides gentle, even heat.
  • Roast mode helps to maximize browning.
  • Do not totally enclose food in aluminum foil.
  • To reheat rolls or biscuits, place on baking pan and heat at 300°F for 10 minutes.
  • Reheat leftover roasts or casseroles in BAKE mode until heated through.
  • Roast foods such as a whole chicken on the low rack position. Place food in baking pan.
  • Turn foods halfway through cooking time if necessary.

Broiling Tips:

  • Place oven rack in upper position.
  • Do not preheat oven.
  • Broil is a hot, direct source of heat that can quickly brown or char food.
  • Use HI for broiling thin cuts of meat, fish, and poultry to brown and cook quickly.
  • Use LO for thicker cuts that require longer to cook without over browning the outside.
  • Leaving the oven or broiler compartment door partially ajar during cooking keeps the cooking environment from getting too hot or steamy.
  • The broiler element could automatically shut off if the oven gets too hot.
  • The food won't develop a good caramelized crust if there is too much steam.
  • Turn foods halfway through cooking time.

Convection Tips:

  • Center food in the oven. Rack position will vary depending on the size of the food.
  • Convection uses forced hot air to speed the baking/roasting process for faster, more even cooking.
  • When using CONV, reduce recipe temperature by 25°F (14°C) or reduce cooking time as follows:
    • Thin items about 1–2 minutes and large meats up to 25%.
    • Preheating is necessary only for food that bakes less than 20 minutes and products like popovers where steam rising is important.
