Here you will find the Timer tile. Set the time you would like and the Brava will notify you when the timer has run out.
You can check the temperature of an ingredient pre or post cook by using the Temperature Readings utility. Insert the probe into your ingredient then connect the TempSensor to the inside connector and the Brava will tell you the temperature the TempSensor is reading. You can navigate to Temperature Readings by going to Settings->Utilities->Temperature Readings.
The Brava does include a overview of general best-cleaning practices. You can access this by going to Settings->Utilities->Cleaning Guide.

You can navigate to the Clean Lamps utility by going to Settings->Utilities->Clean Lamps. Follow the on-screen prompts to start the cycle. Please note, the lamps are self-cleaning whenever they are in use due to the heat emitted. The Clean Lamps cycle is a 6 minute cycle that will rotate operating each lamp at full capacity for 30 seconds, twice. The Clean Lamps utility is a useful function in determining if a lamp may be burnt out should you start to experience uneven cooking results and does not need to be used often.
