The magnetic Cooking Zone sensors located below the cooktop surface
require the use of cookware made with magnetic material in order to start the
heating process on any of the Cooking Zones.
When purchasing pans, look for cookware specifically identified by the
manufacturer for use with Induction cooktops. If your not sure, use a magnet
to test whether the cookware type will work. If a magnet sticks to the bottom
Fig. 18
of the cookware, the material type is correct for Induction cooking (See Fig.
t8).
It is recommended to always use heavier high quality stainless steel cookware on your Induction Cooktop surface.
This will greatly reduce the possibility of developing scratches on the ceramic surface.
Even quality cookware can scratch the cooktop surface, especially if cookware is slid over the ceramic cooktop
surface without being lifted up. Over time sliding ANY type of cookware over the ceramic cooktop will likely alter the
overall appearance of the cooktop. Eventually the buildup of scratches will make cleaning the surface difficult and
degrade the overall appearance of the cooktop.

USE THE CORRECT SIZE COOKWARE
- The 4 Cooking Zones available on the
Induction Cooktop require a MINIMUM
pan size to be used at each location
(Fig. 19). The inner ring of each Cooking
Zone is your guide to the correct
MINIMUM pan size. The pan bottom
must FULLY cover the inner ring for
proper cooking to occur.
The thicker outer ring at each Cooking
Zone is helpful to determine the pan
MAXIMUM size. After centering the
cookware of the cooktop, make sure the
cookware does not extend more than 1/2"
beyond the thicker line on the Cooking
Zone (See example in Fig. 19). The pan
must make FULL contact on the glass
surface without the bottom of the pan
touching the metal cooktop trims
(Shown in Fig. 19).

The cookware used with the Induction Cooktop should have flat bottoms that make good
contact with the ent(re surface of the Cooking Zone Check for flatness by rotating a ruler
across the bottom of the cookware (See Fig 21) Be sure to follow all the recommendations
for using cookware as shown in Fig 20
Also remember to"
• Use cookware made with the correct material type for
Induction Cooking (See Fig 18)
• Use quality cookware with heavier bottoms for better
heat distribution allowing for more even cooking results
• The pan size should match the amount of food being
prepared
• Do not let pans boil dry. This may cause permanent
damage in the form of breakage, fusion, or marring that
can affect the ceramic cooktop (This type of damage
is not covered by your warranty)
• Do not use dirty pans with grease buildup Always use
pans that are easy to clean after cooking
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply the recommended cooktop cleaning
creme to the ceramic surface Buff with a non-abrasive cloth or pad This will make cleaning
easier when soiled from cooking The special cooktop cleaning cream leaves a protective
finish on the glass to help prevent scratches and abrasions

The recommended way to use the touch pads on the cooktop is shown in
Fig. 22. Be sure that your finger is placed in the center of the touch pad
as shown. If the finger is not placed on the center of a pad, the cooktop
may not respond to the selection made.
Lightly contact the pad with the flat part of your entire fingertip. Do not just
use the narrow end of your fingertip.

Your cooktop is equipped with four induction
elements within two heating sections. The
right-hand and left-hand Cooking Zones are
powered by two independent induction
inverters - one inverter for each of the two
heating sections. Two Cooking Zones in a
heating section share the power of one
inverter. This is called Power Sharing.
For example, if pans are cooking food items
on both right-hand Cooking Zones, the last
Power Level set will be maintained, while the
first pan may experience a slight reduction in
the power level setting.

POWER SHARING TIPS: Remember to set the power level for the food item you wish to
maintain last. Or, you may choose to maintain a constant power level for 2 food items by
placing the pans on one of the Cooking Zones of the left-hand heating section and the other
pan on one of the Cooking Zones of the right-hand heating section (See Fig. 23).

The electronic processes involved with Induction Cooking create some unusual background
noises. These noises are normal and part of the Induction Cooking process.
Please note that these noises are more noticeable while cooking at the Power BOOST
level. Very loud noises are not part of normal Induction Cooking.

Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply the recommended CookTopO Cleaning Creme
to the ceramic surface. Buff with a non-abrasive cloth or no-scratch cleaning pad. This will make
cleaning easier when soiled from cooking. The special cooktop cleaning cream leaves a protective
finish on the glass to help prevent scratches and abrasions.
Sliding aluminum or copper clad bottom pans on the cooktop can cause metal
markings on the cooktop surface. These marks should be removed immediately after the cooktop has cooled using the cooktop cleaning cream. Metal
marks can become permanent if not removed prior to future use.
Cookware (cast iron, metal, ceramic or glass) with rough bottoms can mark or
scratch the cooktop surface. Do not slide anything metal or glass across
the cooktop. Do not use your cooktop as a cutting board or work surface in the
kitchen. Do not cook foods directly on the cooktop surface without a pan. Do
not drop heaw or hard objects on the glass cooktop, because they may cause
it to crack.

For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTopO Cleaning Creme directly to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or use
a non-abrasive plastic type no-scratch pad to clean the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the
cooktop is cleaned thoroughly, leaving no residue.
For heavy, burned on soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTop(b Cleaning Creme directly to the soiled area. Rub the soiled area
using a non-abrasive plastic type no-scratch pad, applying pressure as needed. Do not use the
pad you use to clean the cooktop for any other purpose.

If SOilSremain, carefully scrape soils with a metal razor blade scraper, holding
scraper at a 30 degree angle to the surface. Remove loosened soils with cooktop
cleaning cream and buff surface clean.
iMPORTANT NOTE: Damage to the ceramic glass cooktop may occur ifyou use an
abrasive type scratch pad. Only use cleaning products that have been specifically
designed for ceramic glass cooktop.
Fig. 25
@
Plastic or foods with a high sugar content:
These types of soils need be removed immediately if spilled or melted onto the
ceramic cooktop surface. Permanent damage (such as pitting of the cooktop
surface) may occur ifnot removed immediately. After turning the surface elements
OFF, use a razor blade scraper or a metal spatula with a mitt and scrape the soil
from the hot surface (as illustrated).Allow the cooktop to cool, and use the same
method for heaw or burned on soils.
Do not
use the following
on the
ceramic
cooktop
(See Fig. 26):
• Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads, such as metal and
some nylon pads. They may scratch the cooktop, making it more
difficult to clean.
• Do not use harsh cleaners, such as chlorine bleach, ammonia
oven cleaners, as they may etch or discolor the cooktop.
• Do not use dirty sponges,
soil or lint on the cooktop
or
cloths or paper towels, as they can leave
which can burn and cause discoloration.
Fig. 26
Special Caution for Aluminum Foil and Aluminum Cooking Utensils
,, Aluminum foil - Use of aluminum foil will damage the cooktop. Do not use thin aluminum
cooking utensils or allow foil to touch the ceramic cooktop under ANY circumstances.
• Aluminum utensils - The melting point of aluminum is much lower than that of other metals.
Care must be taken when aluminum pots or pans are used on the cooktop. If allowed to boil
dry, not only will the utensil be destroyed, but it may fuse to, break or mark the ceramic
glass surface, permanently damaging the cooktop surface.

Lightweight or warped pans were used. Be sure to use good quality cookware (Refer to
Figs. 20 & 21).
Use only flat bottom, evenly balanced medium or heavyweight cookware. Heavy and
medium weight pans heat evenly. Because lightweight pans heat unevenly, foods may
burn more easily (See pages 12 & 13 for further information).
Adjust Cooking Zone power level setting until the proper amount of heat is obtained.

Many factors affect cooking results. Adjust the recipe's recommended power levels or
cooking times.
Cookware is too lightweight or warped. Use heavier quality cookware so foods being
prepared may cook more evenly.
