Doubles Your Baking Options with Convection Technology
A 9″x13″ baking pan can be found in most kitchens in North America, used for making everything from lasagna to brownies. Not only does this oven fit two 9″x13″ pans at once, unlike conventional ovens without convection technology, the Countertop Oven with Convection and Rotisserie comes fully equipped. Instead of having heat come from just one central area and no fan to “stir-up” or circulate air evenly all over, this oven’s convection technology utilizes a top and bottom heating element and a built-in fan to distribute heat evenly for a uniform temperature. That way, bakers can choose between traditional baking – ideal for cupcakes, cakes and soft baked goods – or convection baking – ideal for a crispy pizzas, cookies or even taquitos.
For light and fluffy soft baked goods like cupcakes, cakes or pastries, follow these BAKE directions. For crispier foods like pizzas or cookies, use CONVECTION BAKE, which forces more air to circulate in the oven, so foods will cook faster at the same oven temperature:
- Before setting to BAKE or CONVECTION BAKE, place first baking rack in very bottom rack slot and second baking rack in the third rack slot from the bottom.
- Set the desired TEMPERATURE.
- Set FUNCTION to BAKE or CONVECTION BAKE
- PREHEAT: Rotate the Timer past 40 minutes, then to 5 minutes before baking.
- Using BAKE: After oven is preheated, rotate Timer past 40 minutes, then to desired baking time or rotate to STAY ON.
- Using CONVECTION BAKE: For baking pizza, check the pizza manufacturer’s recommendations for reducing cooking time and temperature for best results.
For roasted chicken, beef roast or pork roast, follow these ROTISSERIE directions:
- Before setting to ROTISSERIE, slide large coated baking pan in lowest rack position.
- Tie chicken and large pieces of meat tightly with cotton string to prevent meat from hitting baking pan. For further instructions, search World Wide Web on “How to Truss a Chicken for Rotisserie.”
- Insert Rotisserie rod lengthwise into center of meat, and insert rotisserie forks on rod lengthwise into lower bottom half of meat. Make sure meat is centered evenly between rotisserie rod and fork ends, and tighten screws on rotisserie forks.
- Manually insert pointed end of rod holding chicken into oven rotisserie insert, rotating the rod as needed to fit and then place square end of rod into slot in bracket on left side.
- Set TEMPERATURE to BROIL/ROTISSERIE.
- Set FUNCTION to ROTISSERIE.
- BAKE: Rotate Timer past 40 minutes, then set Timer to desired time or rotate to STAY ON.
Note: Only upper heating elements will be on during ROTISSERIE mode.
- To remove cooked meat from oven, place rotisserie lift with hooks under rotisserie rod. Lift and slide rotisserie rod to the left and remove from oven.
- Place meat on a clean surface to cool slightly, and using oven mitts, unscrew rotisserie forks and remove rotisserie rod.
- Slide meat onto cutting surface or serving tray before carving.

Full-Performance Ovens Preferred Over Toaster Ovens
Significant numbers of American consumers use their toaster ovens for more than just toast, and many are also eating at home to save money, eat healthier and manage ingredients. Look no further, the Hamilton Beach Countertop Oven with Convection & Rotisserie combines all these features into one. With an extra-large capacity to fit an entire meal for a family of four, additional BROIL settings for the health-conscious and offering four ways to cook, this appliance satisfies the palate, the diet and the budget.
The full-width crumb/drip tray slides out from the front, allowing easy washing. For the best oven performance, cleaning should be done regularly. Unplug first and allow oven to cool before interior and exterior cleaning. For interior cleaning: wipe oven walls, bottom tray and glass door with a damp, soapy cloth, but do not scratch or damage heating element tube. Repeat with a damp, clean cloth. All removable parts should be hand washed in warm, soapy water as well. For stubborn interior stains, use a plastic scouring pad. For exterior cleaning: wipe oven walls with a damp cloth, but do not use abrasive cleansers or metal scouring pads; this can scrape/scratch the surface.
TIPS & CARE
Before cooking with the oven, always PREHEAT for approximately 5 minutes. Check pan manufacturer’s directions for oven-safe rating. Do not cover the crumb/drip tray or any part of the oven in aluminum foil (causes overheating); however, use of aluminum foil to partially cover casseroles or some foods is acceptable.
