  • Food should be positioned in the center of the Wire Rack, Broil Rack, Baking Tray, or the optional Pizza Pan to let maximum airflow reach the food.
  • Use oven-proof baking dishes, roasting pans, pizza pans or cookie sheets with very low sides, and place on the center of the Wire Rack to let maximum airflow reach the food.
  • For the same reason, do not cover foods with metal foil or any other type of lid or covering for maximum airflow.
