Overview of the oven accessories

It is important to put your racks in the right position. Different rack positions and types of racks will make for different outcomes of your cooking.

Wire rack

Use the wire rack for grilling and roasting. When you insert the wire rack into the oven, keep the protruding parts (stoppers on both sides) toward the front.


Wire rack insert

The wire rack insert is combined with the tray to prevent liquid dropping onto the bottom of the oven. Put the wire rack insert on the tray and then insert it into the oven. 


Note: Do not touch the racks without gloves when they are hot.

Step 2. Put the tray on the rail plate and push the rail plate into the oven.

Step 3. Close the oven door.

Divider (for Dual Cook mode)Click to Expand

The divider separates the oven into two compartments for Dual Cook mode. You can use both the upper and lower compartments to cook two different foods, or simply choose one compartment to cook with.


Insert the divider in the middle to separate the cooking chamber in two compartments. Make sure to insert the divider with the Dual Cook wording facing on the front side. Then, the oven senses the divider and its default setting activates the upper compartment.
