Setting the Controls - Warming Drawer

Warming Drawer Control Settings

The Indoor/Outdoor Warming Drawer is ideal for keeping hot cooked foods at serving temperature. It is designed to operate properly either indoors or outdoors at temperatures down to 32°F (0°C). If the drawer is operated at temperatures colder than 32°F (0°C), performance may be affected.

Different types of food may be placed in the warming drawer at the same time.

Using the Warming Drawer

  1. Push in and turn the control knob to the desired food warming setting: Lo (low), between Lo and Med (medium-low), Med (medium), between Med and Hi (medium-high), or
    Hi (high).
    NOTE: For best results, meats, seafood, poultry, and any foods containing meat, seafood, or poultry should be set to medium or higher.
  2. Select MOIST or DRY setting.
  3. Allow warming drawer to preheat. Recommended minimum preheating times are 5 minutes for Lo, 10 minutes for Med, and 20 minutes for Hi.
  4. Push in and turn the control knob to OFF when finished.

Tips for Better Performance

  • When keeping several types of food hot, use the setting for the highest temperature food in the warming drawer. Place foods requiring the highest temperature on the bottom of the drawer and those foods requiring the lowest temperature on the elevated rack.
  • For best results, do not hold foods in the warming drawer longer than 1 hour. For smaller quantities or heat-sensitive foods, such as eggs, do not hold longer than 30 minutes.
  • Food must be cooked and at serving temperature before being placed in the warming drawer. Cover foods with a lid. Bread, pastries, and fruit pies may be heated from room temperature on the HI setting. Remove food from plastic bags and place it in the oven-safe container.
  • Oven-safe serving dishes and dinner plates can be heated while the warming drawer is preheating.

NOTE: To conserve heat, place cookware and positioning rack in the warming drawer before preheating.
