COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

Use this unit to roast, bake, grill or air fry your food. Add batter directly into the cooking pan to bake cakes or brownies.
Suggested cooking times and temperatures will vary depending on the number of ingredients used. The cooking pan has a nonstick coating, so it is not necessary to add additional oil to every dish. Keep in mind that it is best practice to season foods after they have been cooked to avoid scorching your dish.
Note: Wooden, heat-proof plastic or nylon utensils are recommended for use with this unit. Some metal utensils may scratch the non-stick surface.
Tip: When referencing cooking times for a conventional oven, reduce the cook time by about 25% as a general rule of thumb. Use the glass lid to monitor the food and be sure to record the actual cooking time for future use.
