Range & Wall Oven - Proof Mode

Some ranges and wall ovens have a Proof feature for the oven. For models with this feature, you use the PROOF pad to create the perfect oven environment for activating yeast in homemade bread. When using the Proof feature, the halogen oven light is illuminated to provide the warm temperature needed to help yeast rise during the proofing process. On most convection models, both the convection fan and oven light come on. The oven lights and/or convection fan may cycle on and off when the Proof feature is in use.

 

The temperature range reached when the oven is set for the Proof Mode is approximately 80 to 95 degrees F.

 

Tips for Proofing:

  • Cover the dough tightly with a cloth or greased plastic wrap.

  • To avoid lowering the temperature in the oven while proofing, keep the door closed as much as possible.

  • Do not use the Proof Mode for warming foods or keeping foods hot. The proofing oven temperature is not hot enough to hold foods at safe temperatures.
