Re: I have to cook way longer than recipe says.
This is usually caused by a weak oven ignitor. As they age, they seem to perform less effectively. Sometimes the oven will take several minutes to ignite the first time, and even worse on subsequent ignition cycles, resulting in overall low oven temp and poor baking. Replace the oven ignitor. Note, if you have a self clean gas oven, the ignitors are usually the same part number for the bake and broil, so you can try moving the broil ignitor (which is generally used much less than the bake ignitor) to the bake burner if you want to test it out before buying a replacement ignitor.

It could be your oven isn't as hot as you set it. Get a thermometer and check it. It could be the "something" you cooked was larger than the recipe was expecting... It's cooking, you have to adjust. It could even be your altitude above sea level. Higher, water boils at a lower temp, things take longer to cook.
To Set a Cook T ime: 1. On double oven models only, press UPPER OVEN or LOWER OVEN for the one you want to set. 2. Press BAKE or CONVECT UPPER (on some models). Press the number pads to enter a temperature other than the one displayed. 3. Press COOK TIME. 4. Press the HR and MIN "up" or "down" arrow pads to enter the length of time to cook. 5. Press START/ENTER. The start time and stop time countdown will appear on the oven display. On double oven models only, when both upper and lower ovens are being used at the same time, touch UPPER OVEN or LOWER OVEN to display the respective cook time. When the stop time is reached, the oven will shut off automatically and "End" will appear on the oven display. If enabled, end-of-cycle tones will sound, then reminder tones will sound every minute. Repeat the process by choosing the other option of UPPER or LOWER OVEN
Buy an oven thermometer to check if the temperature you set the oven at is accurate. You may have a faulty thermostat, but if the temp is only off by a little, you can calibrate the temp setting on the oven by as much as + or - 25 degrees. If you have an LCD screen, then most likely you can adjust it right on there. If not, then the backside of the oven knob can be adjusted + or -. by moving a set screw and turning as needed. Your owner's manual will have a more detailed explanation on this procedure. Douglas
your better off going back to the factory setting. Call turbo chef but here you go this is how you re-program the thing. Remember i took the time to give you these directions. Please take the time to leave a review
The EDIT MODE enables the operator to manually alter
recipes and the cook cavity temperature (CCSP).
To access EDIT MODE:
1. Simultaneously press the UP and DOWN keys.
2. When prompted, enter the access code “9” and
then press the ENTER key.
Altering a Recipe
Most NGC (Tornado) oven models contain 128

To alter a recipe:
1. Enter the EDIT MODE (see page 16).
2. Enter the access code “9” and set the CCSP. The
screen displays the first set of eight (8) recipe
groups. To access the second set of eight (8)
recipe groups, press either the UP or DOWN key.
3. Select the recipe group that contains the individual
recipe you wish to alter. Select the recipe you
wish to alter by pressing the soft key corresponding
to the recipe item. Figures 11 and 12.
4. Use the UP and DOWN keys to navigate through
the recipe settings. Use the keypad and ENTER key
to alter any of the following three (3) parameters
(see Figure 13):
a. Cook time
Total duration of the cook cycle. Enter the
desired time and press ENTER.
b. IR element temperature (IRSP)
The temperature the lower radiant element
will maintain during the entire cook cycle.
Valid temperatures are between 500ºF (260ºC)
and 1150ºF (621ºC).
c. Events 1…6
Use the keypad and ENTER key to enter values
for % TIME, % AIR, and % WAV.
o Sum of % TIME for all events must = 100.
The operating system will not allow a
combination of events not equal to 100%.
o The % AIR parameter is valid between 10
o The % WAV (microwave) parameter is valid
between 0 and 100%.
5. After making changes, test the recipe by
pressing the TEST soft key. Once the oven has
warmed to the CC set point, press the TEST
soft key again to begin the test cook.
6. Once satisfied with the recipe, press SAVE to
permanently store changes.
7. Press the BACK key until exited from EDIT MODE.
For TOuch Control oven: 1. Press Finish Time touch pad 2.press ^ touch pad until clock displays the required am or pm finish time. 3. Press Cook Period touch pad. 4. Adjust the cooking time as in step 2, using up and down arrow touch pads. (hours and minutes needed to cook food) 5. Press Automatic touch pad. Press Fan touch pad to select fan speed. Red indicating light shows normal speed. 7. Turn oven thermostat to desired setting. 8. Press Keep Warm touch pad if keep warm function is required at end of cooking. 9.

The automatic programme is now ready to use. Turn upper oven thermostat to desired setting. If keep warm function is required, turn function switch to Cook (optional)
First let me address the temp ... Buy a meat thermometer and test it against the temp set in the oven. Though that isn't the most accurate, it should prove whether or not it is way way off.
Second.. convection baking takes considerably less time....
Third... elevation plays a key factor on baking but not so much on cooking meat. Baking above 2500ft elevation takes 20% longer and above.
