Safety at a Glance


  • If it wasn't obvious, ovens make things hot. This oven is extra spicy. Follow all safety procedures for really really hot things.
  • Know where you are going to put hot things and clear those areas and the paths between them before things are hot.
  • Do not leave the space while things (material, oven, tools, etc) are still hot.
  • Fire watch for 30 minutes after everything is cool.


  • Any operation with this oven takes time, plan accordingly.
  • Example Timing Info: “It took 55 minutes to get to 1550 including a 40 drop when I peeked to take a pic at about 1400..”

Buddy Up:

  • Consider working with a buddy to help with doors and hot things.
  • If working with a buddy is not viable, consider working when others are within earshot.


The oven has a programmable controller. Manual attached here im204-sentry12key-cfrh-nov2018.pdf
