How does the new PowR Oven™ work?
The new PowR Oven™ features a power burner that is located inside the back of the oven cavity. This burner technology, which is widely used in commercial ovens, provides heat directly to the cooking chamber, enabling faster preheating and overall enhanced efficiency. When the power burner is running the convection fan cycles on a low speed to promote even heat distribution throughout the oven cavity.
Is there also a heating element on the bottom of the oven?
No, there is no additional heating element in the bottom of the oven. The power burner, located at the back of the oven cavity, provides a more efficient heat source.
Is convection available?
All units come standard with a convection fan. It is controlled by a switch located on the front control panel. For more efficient and even baking and roasting, use your PowR Oven™ with the convection fan turned on. If you choose to use the convection fan, standard adjustments in temperature are recommended. The convection fan will always run at a low speed when the power burner is on. The fan will run at a high speed when the burner is not lit and if the convection switch on the front control panel is on.
Why does the flame on the power burner turn on and off?
The power burner cycles to maintain the desired air temperature for a constant and even heat. The power burner flame will automatically ignite and extinguish during this process. The blue indicator light, located on the front control panel, will turn on every time the power burner is on as the oven cycles to maintain the set temperature.
Because of the location of the power burner, is the back of the oven hotter than the front?
No, the cavity design, which features coved corners, and the automatic cycling of the convection fan while the power burner is running promotes consistent heat distribution for even roasting and baking.
Can the recommended temperatures in my recipe be used with this oven?
Recommended temperatures are a great starting point. With the power burner you may need to adjust your temperatures slightly to get your desired results. In general lighter, smaller recipes such as cookies, muffins, and thin layer cakes, will cook in roughly the same amount of time as your recipe. The denser the recipe (e.g. cheesecakes, pound cakes, large meats) the faster the cook time will be verses your recipe. Consult your user manual for additional guidance.
Can you use the oven without the power burner running?
No, the power burner located on the back wall of the cavity is the heating element for the oven.
How long does it take the power burner in the PowR Oven™ to ignite?
Although the indicator light is on, it may take up to one minute for the power burner to ignite, this is normal.
How long is the power cord?
The power cord is 5ft long.
Are casters available instead of legs?
Yes, both casters and legs are available. Each range comes standard with legs. Casters must be requested at the time of order.
What size backguards are available?
The standard backguard is Island Trim, which is grate height. Additional available backguards are 6″, 17″ and 24″, and must be specified at the time of order.
What is the standard burner configuration?
All Platinum™ Series ranges come standard with all burners.
