Broiling in June Oven
One of June Oven’s core features, Broil is perfect for quickly searing seafood, shellfish, and thin cuts of meat.
How it works
The Broil Cook Mode exclusively uses the upper heating elements, providing the intense radiant heat needed to cook foods quickly. The lower heating elements and convection fans are off while broiling.
Customize your broiling experience
With intense heat only coming from one side, this cook mode behaves a little different than the others. Instead of setting a temperature, Broil allows you to select a power level on a 5 to 10 scale, ranging from “Very low” to “Very high” heating element output. The first time you use Broil the default setting is 9, but June will remember the last heat setting used and make that the new default. When broiling you can 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.
Broil performs best when food is in the middle rack position, where food is close enough to cook through evenly without being so close it burns before it's done. With the intense heat used for Broil, food will cook and brown much faster than with other Cook Modes and you may want to take advantage of Live Video within the June App to keep an eye on the progress.
Cook-Programs and Recipes
Broil drives our Cook-Programs for foods that you might otherwise prepare outside on a grill, such as steak, pork chops, and burgers. 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. Broil also lends a helping hand for several recipes in The Cookbook within the June App, giving our Buffalo Mac and Cheese its signature crunchy top and charring chicken to layer outstanding flavor into our Slow-Cooked Chicken Tikka Masala.
Frequently asked questions
The ideal power level will vary depending on the size and shape of what you’re cooking, as well as what the ideal outcome is. In general, we recommend using a lower Broil level when you want to cook something slower and get a more consistent color, while we recommend a higher Broil level for when you want to cook something fast and want the occasional black charring on the surface.
