Convection Steam Oven (Touch Control) Gourmet Mode


  • What is the Convection Steam Oven (CSO) Gourmet mode?
  • How does Gourmet mode sense that the food is cooked, done?
  • Food baked or cooked using the CSO with Touch Control Gourmet mode is underdone, overdone, under-cooked, over-cooked
  • Flashing H on the display


This information is for the newer CSOs without a knob. For the older CSO with a knob, refer to Convection Steam Oven (Knob Control) Gourmet Mode.

In Gourmet mode, after the program knows what type of food is being made, precise sensors calculate the amount, shape, and consistency of the food and adjust the time, temperature, and humidity to provide perfect results.

  • When using Convection Steam Oven Gourmet mode, the door must stay closed the entire time to produce the best results.
  • Opening the door during Gourmet mode will cause food sensor miscalculations.
  • For more information on cooking with a CSO, refer to:
  • For Gourmet mode to determine optimum cooking or baking time:
    1. The initial cooking space must be cool.
    2. Food must be placed in the oven.
    3. The oven door must stay closed.
  • The time remaining will adjust automatically during cooking, based on the doneness of the food. This is normal.
