I have an old version of this model. It has regular bake,convection bake and convection roast settings. It also has a griddle plate over a 5th oval middle burner that can be switched out with the regular burner grate. The draw is for baking and is electric. I was told by the sales person at Lowes that the draw is used in kosher households for keeping food warm on religious days when actual cooking is not allowed. Not sure if it is true but there is some reference in the owners manual.
