How to Use a Whirlpool Accubake Broiler

Meredith Jameson

Several types of Whirlpool brand ranges and built-in ovens incorporate the company’s “AccuBake” broiler, which uses an even distribution of heat within the oven for more accurate cooking results.

The system uses a sensor to monitor the temperature inside the oven during cooking and broiling and keeps track of the heat throughout the entire oven. The AccuBake system is automatic in applicable models during cooking and broiling, and using the broiler in the Whirlpool ovens is fairly simple.

  1. Set food to be broiled on a broiling pan with a grid to allow juices and other liquid to drip down into the pan and not the oven.

  2. Trim excess fat from meat prior to broiling. Use a knife to create slits on the remaining fat to keep the fat from curling.

  3. Press “Broil” and set the oven to “Hi” or “Low” broiling using the “0” number pad. Press once for “Hi” broiling temperatures or twice for “Low” broiling temperatures.

  4. Allow the oven to preheat for about four minutes.

  5. Set the broiling pan on the top rack in the oven. Close the oven door to allow the AccuBake sensors to work accurately. Monitor the food through the oven window.

  6. Remove the broiling pan using oven mitts when the food is finished cooking. Press “Cancel” to turn off the oven when finished.
