Your Verona oven has many functions to help you cook the best meals for your family. Whether it’s an easy breakfast or a complex three-course dinner, these seven functions will expand your horizons about what you can roast, bake or broil with your Verona appliance. We have outlined each setting for you below with what they look like, how they work, and what foods they’re best used for.
Defrosting Frozen Foods
Did you know that you can use your Verona oven to defrost frozen foods? Only the fan and oven lamp switch are on with this setting for a minimal amount of heat, which prevents partial cooking during the defrost process. Defrosting times can vary according to the quantity and type of foods to be defrosted. Our general rule of thumb is roughly one hour for every 2.2 pounds of food. Remember to switch the thermostat knob to “off” during the defrosting period to prevent heating.
Traditional Convection Cooking
The upper and lower heating elements are used in this setting. Heat is diffused by natural convection, which happens when liquids and gasses are heated and move around in the oven cavity. Traditional convection cooking is best for foods that require the same cooking temperature both internally and externally, like roasts or a rack of ribs.
Ventilated Cooking with True European Convection
Most Verona ranges are equipped with a circular ‘European’ heating element. In the Ventilated Cooking Mode, the fan and the European element are active, creating the perfect environment for cooking multiple dishes at once without flavor transfer, like a roast chicken for dinner and an apple pie for dessert. Heat from the circular element is dispersed by forced convection, and temperature is regulated with the thermostat knob. This mode does not require preheating and is best suited for foods that need to be fully cooked, yet soft inside, like lasagna, roast beef or fish.
Convection Cooking with Ventilation
All Verona electric ovens are equipped with three heating elements – a circular European heating element, an upper heating element and a lower heating element – along with one or two convection fans, depending on model. In this setting, both upper and lower elements are turned on along with the convection fan(s) and the temperature is controlled with the thermostat knob. This setting lets meats roast evenly on all sides and is often used for baking as it is best for maintaining the same internal and external temperatures throughout the cooking cycle.
Maintaining Temperature After Cooking or Slowly Heating Foods
Did your roast chicken finish cooking just a little too soon before the whole family is ready for dinner? Turn on this setting to keep your meal hot. In this setting, the upper heating element is set to the desired temperature and the fan is operational. The fan will diffuse residual heat to maintain a steady temperature in the oven. You can also use this setting to re-heat already cooked foods slowly and maintain moisture as an alternative to a microwave or toaster oven.
The broiling function is used at the end of the cooking process to generate the perfect, just charred finish on food. This setting turns on the either the infrared heating element in an electric oven or the gas-powered broiler burner in a gas oven. Both are located at the top of the oven and diffuse an intense and instant heat. Use the broil function to toast garlic bread, melt cheese on French onion soup, or give vegetables or meat a caramelized exterior. You will want to keep a close eye on your food while it’s under the broiler to avoid overcooking or burning.
This function, possible only in an electric oven, is similar to broiling, but adds the fan for a more even disbursement of infrared heat to completely wrap food in the circulated heat. This setting is best used for grill cooking when a fast outside browning is necessary to keep the juices in, like veal, steak or hamburgers.
