Operate on high with the lid closed until the ceramic burners turn red. Place food on grids and cook according to times listed in the infrared grilling chart; see owner’s manual. Due to the intense heat the infrared burners provide, unattended food will burn easily. Keep the lid open when cooking with the infrared. The intense heat ensures excellent searing temperatures even with the lid open. Once you have seared the food, locking in the juices, you may move it away from the infrared burner, close the lid and allow oven temperatures to slowly finish the cooking.
