Roast Cook Mode

by Weber Grills

Roasting in June Oven


One of June Oven’s core features, Roast is the go-to choice for cooking meats, vegetables and sheet pan dinners.

How it works

The Roast Cook Mode primarily radiates heat from the upper heating elements, creating a hot environment above and around the food. Working in conjunction with June’s dual convection fans, this concentrated heat cooks foods quickly and leads to caramelized, golden-brown exteriors.

Customize your roasting experience

With strong heat circulating evenly around the oven, this mode was designed with trays of vegetables, proteins, and one pan dinners in mind. Roast supports temperatures from 100–500 °F, with the ability to set the timer or use the Food Thermometer to set a target doneness temperature. To learn more about using the Food Thermometer when cooking, check out this guide.

Roast is designed to cook one pan of food at a time and has best results when using the middle shelf position, though larger proteins (like whole chickens or pork roasts) will require more space and need the bottom shelf position.

Cook-Programs and Recipes

Whether you’re looking to cook chicken thighs as a main course or caramelize some butternut squash for a side, Roast makes possible the Cook-Programs we use every day. These custom-engineered presets are designed to start from a cold oven, saving you preheating time and help you get dinner on the table faster than ever.

We’ve also packed the Cookbook within the June App with one pan dinners that take advantage of the circulating hot air to cook full trays of food at once. Whether it’s Gnocchi with Tomatoes and Olives, Panko-Crusted Salmon with Roasted Broccoli, or Curried Chicken with Roasted Vegetables, you’ll find plenty of meals your household will love.

Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between Bake and Roast?

Bake uses strong heat below with gentle heat above and works best for baked goods and casseroles. Roast uses the opposite, with strong heat above and gentle heat below and is ideal for meats, vegetables, and getting golden, crispy edges. To learn more about Bake, check out this guide.

Can I use my own baking pans and dishes in June?
Of course! You can use any oven-safe pan or dish that fits inside June Oven. Just as with a normal oven, the material of your pan or dish can drastically affect cooking times since glass, metals, ceramics and silicones all conduct heat differently. When making a recipe from June App or using a Cook-Program, we recommend using the accessories called for to guarantee your results.
Can I line the Nonstick Pan with parchment or foil?
Nonstick Pan is designed with our signature nonstick coating to offer easy release and fast cleanup without any lining. You may use parchment or foil, but know this will impact baking times and performance.
What is the purpose of the roasting rack? Do I really need to use it?
The Roasting Rack is designed to fit snugly in the Nonstick Pan and creates another cooking layer. When cooking meat, this keeps food from sitting in the juices that collect in the pan and promotes air circulation for even cooking. Many recipes (like our French-Style Chicken with Root Vegetables) call for a layer of vegetables to sit in the pan with the meat positioned above on the Roasting Rack, letting the vegetables soak up flavors from the roasting meat.
Why are foods cooking faster in June versus my regular oven?
It’s possible that your large oven doesn’t have convection fans. Convection is on by default when using Roast but can be turned on or off during cooking using the Cook Settings menu on your oven screen. If you want similar results to your full-size oven, we recommend lowering the oven temperature 25 °F below what your recipe indicates and start checking for doneness around 75% of the way through the listed cooking time.
