Convection Steam Oven (Knob Control) Gourmet Mode


  • What is the Convection Steam Oven (CSO) Gourmet Mode?
  • How does Gourmet Mode sense when food is cooked, done?
  • Food baked or cooked using the CSO (earlier models) Gourmet Mode is underdone, overdone, under-cooked, over-cooked
  • Flashing H on the display


This information is for the older CSOs with a knob. For the new CSO without a knob, refer to Convection Steam Oven (Touch 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.
  • The Convection Steam Oven automatically selects the proper settings when using Gourmet Mode. For more information on manual 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.

To use Gourmet Mode:

  1. Place food in oven.
  2. Press OK twice.
  3. Turn the knob to select desired food, then press OK.
  4. Follow instructions on the display, then press OK.
  5. The oven stops cooking when mode is complete.
