IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
This guide contains important safety symbols and instructions. Please pay special attention to these symbols and follow all instructions given. Here is a brief explanation of the use of these symbols.
- Remove aft tape and packaging wrap before using the appliance. Destroy the carton and plastic bags after unpacking the appliance. Never allow children to play with packaging material.
- Proper Installation–Be sure your appliance is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician in accordance with National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA No.70–latest edition and local code requirements. Install only per installation instructions provided in the literature package for this appliance.
- Ask your dealer to recommend a qualified technician and an authorized repair service. Know how to disconnect the electrical power to the range at the circuit breaker or fuse box in case of an emergency.
- User Servicing–Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in the manuals. All other servicing should be cloned only by a qualified technician to reduce the risk of personal injury and damage to the appliance.
- Never modify or alter the construction of a range by removing leveling legs, panels, wire covers, anti-tip brackets/screws, or any other part of the product
Selecting Surface Cooking Utensils
For best results and energy conservation, choose cooking utensils that have these characteristics:
- Pans should have flat bottoms that make good contact with the entire surface element. Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom. There should be no gap between the pan and ruler
Note: Always use a utensil for its intended purpose. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Some utensils were not made to be used in the oven or on the cooktop.
Specialty pans such as lobster pots, griddles, and pressure cookers may be used but must conform to the above-recommended cookware requirement
- Flat bottom and straight sides.
- Tight-fitting lids.
- The weight of the handle does not tilt the pan. Pan is well-balanced.
- Pan sizes match the amount of food to be prepared and the size of the surface element.
- Made of a material that conducts heat well.
- Easy to clean.
- Always match pot diameter to element diameter.
- Curved and warped pan bottoms.
- Pan overhangs unit by more than one-half inch or 12mm.
- Heavy handle tilts pan.
- Pan is smaller or larger than the element.
Setting Surface Controls
- Place the pan on the surface element.
- Push in and turn the surface element control knob to the desired setting.
- The surface signal light will glow when one or more elements are turned on. Always turn the element off before removing the pan.
The suggested settings found in the chart beside are based on cooking in medium-thickness aluminum pans with lids. Settings may vary when using other types of pans.
Note: The size and type of utensil used, and the amount and type of food being cooked will influence the setting needed for the best cooking results.
NOTE: All knobs shown in this owner’s Guide are typical only.
Ceramic Glass cooktop (some models)
The ceramic-glass cooktop has electric heating coils located below the ceramic glass surface. The design of the glass cooktop outlines the area of the surface heating unit below. Most importantly, make sure the diameter of the pan matches the diameter of the surface unit. Heat is transferred up through the surface of the cooktop. Only flat-bottomed pans should be used. The type and size of the cookware, the number of surface units in use, and the settings of the surface units are factors that will affect the amount of heat that will spread to areas surrounding the units.
The areas surrounding the units may become hot enough to cause burns.
The cooktop should not be used as a cutting board or work surface. Dropping heavy or hard objects on the cooktop may crack it. Pans with rough bottoms may scratch the cooktop surface. Placing foods directly on the smooth top surface (without cooking utensils) is not recommended as difficult cleaning will result and foods may smoke and cause a potential fire hazard. Never use the griddle or similar cooking sheet on the ceramic glass cooktop.
NOTE: Due to the high intensity of heat generated by the surface elements, the glass surface will turn green when the element will be turned off. This phenomenon is normal and the glass will come back to its original white color after it has completely cooled down. (White glass cooktops only
TYPES OF HEATING UNITS USED
Regular Radiant Heating Units (some models)
- The ceramic glass design shows the location of the heating surfaces.
- Control knobs are used to set the heat power levels; knobs need first to be pressed in when in the OFF position, then turned to the desired heat settings.
- A glowing red surface unit extending beyond the bottom edge of the cooking utensil indicates the utensil is too small for the unit. The control knob does not have to be set exactly on a particular mark. Use the marks as a guide and adjust the control knob as needed. The hot surface and surface indicator lights will glow.
Note: A built-in protector will automatically turn off the radiant and expandable radiant elements if the ceramic glass temperature exceeds the set limit.
Expandable Radiant Heating Units (some models)
This heating unit combines the characteristics of a small and a large regular radiant heating unit. Its principal advantage is to allow small and large utensils to be used on the same heating unit, therefore increasing the cooktop flexibility. Heat power levels are adjusted by a special control knob that has a dual set of graduations; for small utensils use the small graduations; the inner surface only will be heating. For larger utensils use the larger graduations; the whole surface will be heating. The hot surface and surface indicator lights will glow when the heating unit is turned ON.
Note: During any heat setting of the outer radiant element, the inner radiant element cycles on and off with the outer element.
Setting Warm Zone Control
To Operate the warm zone
Your appliance is equipped with a warm zone. The purpose of the warm zone is to keep hot cooked foods at serving temperature. Always start with hot food. It is not recommended to heat cold food in the warm zone.
Use the warm zone to keep cooked foods hot such as vegetables, gravies, casseroles, soups, stews, bread, pastries, and oven-safe dinners]
All food placed in the warm zone should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil to maintain quality. For best results, when warming pastries or bread, the cover should have an opening to allow moisture to escape. Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto the surface and be very difficult to clean. Use only dishware, utensils, and cookware recommended for oven and cooktop use in the warm zone.
Refer to the chart in the side column for recommended settings. If a particular food is not listed, start with the medium setting. If more crispness is desired, remove the lid or aluminum foil. Most foods can be kept at serving temperatures by using a medium setting.
When a combination of foods is to be kept warm (for instance, meat with 2 vegetables and rolls), use the high setting. Refrain from opening the warmer drawer while in use to eliminate loss of heat from the drawer. Open only for adding or removing food.
