Samsung Oven Bake Vs Broil
While baking, the oven uses both the top and bottom element to heat food evenly. Moderate temperatures are used during the baking to ensure the oven is cooked on the inside as well as the outside. However, broiling is used to brown or crisp up the exterior of meat or other foods.
The broiler is normally used after the food is well cooked in order to get a browned or crisp appearance. The broil element on the top of the oven uses high temperatures in order to make this happen. Note that the broiler cannot be used in place of baking as it will result in your food having an uncooked interior.

Step 1: Turn on the oven and press the “Broil” button once for high or twice for low.
Step 2: Press the “Start” button.
Step 3: Once the oven is hot enough, open the door and place your food inside.
