Convection Steam Oven Rack and Rack Guide Position


  • Convection Steam Oven (CSO) rack or rack guide position
  • Which way to face pans in Convection Steam Oven
  • Which direction to place CSO racks, pans, or rack guides


Oven Racks


  • CSO pans should be placed in the slots in the rack guides just like oven racks.
  • The slanted edge of the pan faces the back, while the square edge faces the front. This helps with heat circulation in the oven.
  • See also, Convection Steam Oven Pans.

Rack Guides

  • In all CSO models, the indentation on the vertical edge faces toward the front of the oven.
  • In newer, touch control CSO models only:
    • Rack guides should be oriented so the indentations on each level face upward, as shown in the image below.
    • The rack guides are designed so that the back edges of CSO pans or racks catch on the indentations. These hold them in place while rotating food or checking doneness.
