Step 1: Load the Tray

  • Single layer with minimal gaps.

Step 2: Measure Height of Sweet Potatoes

  • Measure your sweet potatoes with the TempSensor to ensure they are 0.5 inch or less tall.

  • If the sweet potatoes are bigger, they may not cook fully.



Step 3: Measure Steak Height

  • Measure the thickness of your steak using the TempSensor. 
  • Slide the white marker up or down on the screen to the correct height of your steak. 



Step 4: Check Steak Height

  • Your steak should be between the heights of 1.25” and 2”.

  • The TempSensor icon will light up green when you have entered a steak between these heights.

  • Cook will not start if height indicator is red.


Step 5: Insert TempSensor

  • Play video for illustration.
  • From left side of the steak, insert your TempSensor horizontally into the steak.
  • Insert all the way in until the needle is completed inside the protein.

Step 6: Select Doneness Level

  • Select your preferred doneness for the steak.
  • You have the option to add cook time by doing Touch Up or Sear at the end of the cook to perfect your steak. 
  • Touch Up will continue to cook the food; while Sear will also brown the food (top or bottom, or both).

Step 7: Insert Tray

  • Slide the Metal Tray onto the top shelf of your Brava.
  • Ensure your TempSensor cord is tucked under the protective shelf on the left side.  Twist the TempSensor needle to help position the cord.
