Rack Height Positions

Cooking results are significantly affected by the position of the Wire Rack as this determines how close the food is to the heating elements. We highly recommend following the rack height position for each function as printed on the right hand side of the oven door’s glass window.

However, these are a guide only. Certain foods may require a different rack height position depending on the recipe, the amount and size of the food and your personal taste.

  • Top rack height position: BROIL function.
  • Middle rack height position: TOAST, BAGEL, PIZZA and COOKIE functions.
  • Bottom rack height position: BAKE, ROAST, REHEAT and WARM functions.

NOTE: When using metal foil to cover accessories, pans, and dishes, it is recommended that the Wire Rack be in the middle or bottom location.

NOTE: When the Wire Rack is inserted into the middle rack height position, the Magnetic Auto-Rack Eject automatically ejects the Wire Rack halfway out of the oven when the oven door is opened. This is so your toasted items can be safely and easily removed. Always open the door slowly and in a controlled manner when the Wire Rack is inserted into this rack height position to prevent the Wire Rack from ejecting too quickly.


For optimum cooking results:

  • The Wire Rack should always be inserted into the rack height position with the spokes facing upward.
  • Food should be positioned on the center of the Wire Rack, Broil Rack, Baking Tray, or Pizza Tray to let maximum airflow reach the food.

Optional Settings

Convection Button

Convection cooking uses fan assistance to circulate heated air around the food. This produces faster, more even, more energy-efficient cooking.

Convection cooking is the default setting on the BAKE, ROAST, PIZZA, COOKIE and REHEAT functions. The setting can be deselected by pressing the CONVECTION button, or re-selected by pressing the CONVECTION button a second time. Convection cooking is not the default setting on the WARM function, however, it can be selected by pressing the CONVECTION button.


The convection symbol is displayed on the LCD screen whenever this setting is selected.

Convection cooking can reduce cooking times. Some foods may not be ideal for convection cooking. We recommend experimenting with the convection, temperature, and time settings to produce the desired results.

For optimum results:

  • 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.
  • Most recipes recommend reducing temperatures by 25°F when using convection cooking. Always check the food 10 minutes before the suggested cooking time is complete to avoid overcooking.

Temperature Conversion Button

The temperature reading on the oven is preset to Fahrenheit. Pressing the TEMPERATURE CONVERSION button allows the Fahrenheit temperature reading to be converted to Celsius. The corresponding ‘C°’ or ‘F°’ symbol is displayed on the LCD screen.

The TEMPERATURE CONVERSION button may be selected when using the BAKE, ROAST, BROIL, PIZZA, COOKIE, REHEAT and WARM functions.

NOTE: The TEMPERATURE CONVERSION button can be used as an electronic temperature conversion tool, particularly convenient for international recipes.

NOTE: If you have changed the default Fahrenheit temperature reading to Celsius, the setting will remain in the memory of the oven until the TEMPERATURE CONVERSION button is pressed a second time or the oven is unplugged from the wall outlet. When the oven is plugged back into the wall outlet, the temperature reading will automatically return to the preset Fahrenheit setting.

Frozen Foods Button

The FROZEN FOODS button adds the recommended additional time required to defrost and then toast frozen bread or bagels and cook frozen pizza or cookie dough.

The FROZEN FOODS button can be selected before or during the cooking cycle and is selectable on the Toast, Bagel and Cookie functions and is the default setting for the Pizza Function. When cooking fresh pizzas, deselect the Frozen Food button before the cycle begins.

Standby Mode

When the oven is plugged into a wall outlet and turned ON, the oven alert will sound twice and the LCD screen will illuminate for 10 minutes before entering standby mode. When in standby mode, the LCD screen will cease to illuminate, however, all function options will still be visible.

To reactivate the oven from standby mode, press the START/CANCEL button on the control panel, or turn any dial. The LCD screen will re-illuminate. Press the START/CANCEL button to activate the oven.

The oven is ON (cooking) when the oven alert sounds and the button surround is illuminated red, and is OFF when the START/CANCEL button is pressed a second time and the button surround illumination goes out.

Plate Warming Tray

The top of the oven is very hot during and after operation. Do not store any item on top of the oven when in operation.

The only exceptions are:

One layer of ceramic plates for warming or The optional Bamboo Cutting Board and Serving Tray accessory.

THE USE OF ANY ACCESSORY ATTACHMENTS NOT RECOMMENDED BY BREVILLE MAY CAUSE INJURIES. THE OUTER SURFACE OF THE OVEN, INCLUDING THE OVEN DOOR, IS HOT DURING AND AFTER OPERATION. ALWAYS USE PROTECTIVE HOT PADS OR INSULATED OVEN MITTS WHEN INSERTING, REMOVING OR HANDLING ITEMS FROM THE OVEN. ALTERNATIVELY, ALLOW THE OVEN TO COOL DOWN BEFORE HANDLING.
