How Do You Use Your Warming Drawer?

jessinEC | Feb 5, 2011 09:18 PM

Through a stroke of good luck, I managed to buy a used GE Profile Range & Oven in perfect condition for $75. It includes a warming drawer, something I've never had (nor ever really wanted), but now that I do have it, I want to learn how to use it. What kinds of foods work well in the warming drawer? Is there a risk of things drying out? For example, if I make a cornbread, should I undercook it if I'm going to put it in the warming drawer while the rest of dinner finishes? Or do I cook it as usual? Keep in mind that my family is vegetarian (so I'm not cooking roasts or anything). The range on ours is something like 140-250 degrees, so I can't really use it for cooking (meringues maybe). Thanks for your advice!
