Use Dry" Potholders Only:
Proper
potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns
from steam. Do not let the potholder touch the
hot heating elements. Do not use towels or other
bnlky cloths.
Installation:
Be sure your appliance is
properly installed and grounded hy a qualified
technician,
NEVER USE YOUR APPLIANCE FOR
WARMING OR IIEATING THE ROOM.
Moist or damp
Surface Cooking Units - Use the Proper Pan
Size: This appliance is equipped with one or
more surface elements of different sizes. Select
utensils ha_ng flat bottoms large enough to
cover the surface element. The use of
undersized utensils will expose a portion of the
heating element to direct contact and may result
in the ignition of clothing. The proper
relationship of the utensil to the element will
also improve efficiency.
Storage Above the Range: To eliminate the
hazard of reaching over hot surface elements,
cabinet storage should not be provided directly"
above a unit. If provided, storage should be
limited to infrequently used items that can be
safely stored in an area subjected to heat.
Temperatures may be unsafe for some items
such as volatile Iiquids, cleaners, or aerosol
sprays. If cabinet storage is provided, installation
of a range hood that projects at least 5 inches
beyond the bottom of the cabinet will reduce the
hazards associated with such storage,
Never Leave the Surface Units Unattended

Anti-Tip Bracket Warning: To reduce the risk
of tipping of the appliance from nmlsual usage or
by excessive loading of the oven door, the
appliance must be secured by a properly
installed anti-tip device. To check if the device is
installed properl); use a tlashlight amt look
underneath the range to see that one of tile rear
leveling legs is engaged in the bracket slot.
When removing the appliance fur cleaning, be
sure the anti-tip de,-ice is engaged when the
range is replaced. The anti-tip de_qce secures tile
rear leveling leg to the floor when properly
engaged.

Additional Infortnation:
After the appliance is
installed, be certain all packing materials are
removed from tile appliance before operating
the unit. If the appliance is installed near a
window, take steps to prevent curtains from
blowing over the surface elements creating a fire
On some models, a fan should be heard during
the self-clean cycle. If not, cancel the clean cycle
and call a qualified technician before selfcleaning again. (Refer to the Table of Contents

h_ard.
Care should be given to the location of
appliance. Be sure the floor covering under the
appliance, the walls adjacent to the appliance,
the cabinetry adjacent to the appliance, and
other materials adjacent to tile appliance can
withstand prolonged heat. This is a heavy
appliance and can settle into soft floor coverings
such as cushioned vinyl. Use care when moving
the range on this type of floor covering,
Ceramic Glass Cooktop: Do not cook on a
broken cooktop. If the cooktop should break,
cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate
the broken cooktop and create a risk of electric
shock. Contact a qualified technician
immediatel}_ Clean the cooktop with caution. If"
a wet sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a
hot cooking area, be careful to avoid steam
bm'ns. Some cleaners can produce noxious
fmnes if applied to a hot surface.
Oven Door: Do not place excessive weight on
an open oven door or stand on an open oven
door as, in some cases, it could canse the range
to tip over, breakage of the door or serious injuv,
Circuit Breaker or Fuse: Locate and mark
Do Not Leave Children Alone: Children
should not be left alone or unattended in an area
where an appliance is in use. They should never
be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the
appliance. CAUTION: Do not store items of
the breaker or fuse. Never replace a blown fuse
or reset a breaker until you know what has
caused the problem. Ahvays replace a blown fuse
with one of the correct amperage - do not use a

Construction
and Size
For best heat condnction from the cooking

determine the flatness of the bottom of a pan try
one of these tests:
Do not allow plastic, alnminum foil, sugar or
food with a high sugar content to melt onto the
hot eooktop since this can cause permanent
damage. If you accidentally melt these items to
the cooktop, remove the substance iminediately
while it is still hot using a razor blade scraper
held carefully with a potholder. Do not attempt
flmther cleaning until the area has cooled,
1. Ruler test: Place the edge of a nller across
the bottom of the utensil. Hold it up to the
light. Little or no light should be visible under
the rnler.
Do not slide metal or glass items across the
ceramic glass surface. They may damage the top.
Do not slide almninmn cookavare across the
cooktop. This may result in alunainum marks
which need to be removed promptly with a
recommended eooktop cleaner.
Disposable aluminum eookware, aluminum foil
or foil containers such as popcorn poppers are
not recommended for use on the ceramic glass
cooktop. They will leave metal marks and may
permanently melt onto the ceramic top if the
cooking area is turned on.

Material
Tile pan material determines how evenly and quickly heat is transferred from the heat source to the pan
bottom. Some widely used pan materials are:
Aluminum
Excellent heat conductor, Some tbod ,Mll cause it to darken or pit. Anodizing improves stain resistance.
Often used as a bottom coating to improve the heating of other pan materials,
Copper
Excellent heat conductor. Discolors easily, requires constant polishing. Often used as a bottom coating
to improve the heating of other pan materials.
Stainless
Steel
Slow heat eonductor. Develops hot spots and produces uneven cooking results. Durable, attractive,
easy to clean and stain resistant. Will distribute heat better if other metals (aluminum or copper) are
combined or sandwiched together as a bottom coating.
Cast Iron
Slow heat conductor. Cooks evenly once temperature
cleaning easier and to prevent sticking and rusting.
Glass or Ceramic
Slow heat conductors. Easy to clean. Not recommended for solid elements or ceramic glass surfaces.

find that tlle cooking times and temperatures
you were accustomed to with your previous

Utensils
The finish on baking utensils determines tbe
amount of browning. Colored, glass or dark,
rough, dull utensils absorb heat, resulting in a
browner, crisper crust. Use this _1)e for pies or
breads. For lighter, more delicate browning, use
shiny or smooth ntensils that reflect heat. These
are ideal _br cakes and sngar cookies.
When baking iu g/ass utensils, lower the
recommended temperatnre by 25°F. (This is not
necessa D, when baking pies or casseroles.)
The same rnle applies when nsing a colored
porcelain pan.
Alxx%vsuse the pan size recommended in the
recipe. Many pans have the measurements
marked on them. lfthere are no measurements,
measure the inside width and length of the pan.

Roasting
Roasting is the method _br cooking large, tender
cuts
of meat uncovered, without adding
moisture.
General
Tips
Most meats are roasted at 325°F. It is not
Place the meat fat-side-up on a rack in a shallow
roasting pan. Placing the meat on a rack holds it
out of the drippings, thus allowing better heat
circulation for even cooking. As the fiaton top of
the roast melts, the meat is basted naturally,
eliminating tile need for additional basting.
The cooking time is determined
necessary- to preheat the oven. Place the roasting
pan on a rack which has been placed in either of
the two lowest rack positions,
by the weight of
the meat and the desired doneness. For more
accurate results, use a meat thermometer. Insert
it so the tip is in the center of the thickest part of
the meat. It shonkt not touch fat or bone.
Use tender cuts of meat weighing three pounds
or more. Some good choices are: beef rib,
ribeye, top round, high quality tip and romp
roast, pork leg and loin roast, veal and lamb leg,
shoulder roast and cured and smoked hams.

Broiling
The ttistance from the heat source depends on
tile thickness of the nteat. Thin cuts (3/4 to I
inch) should be placed 2-3 inches from the heat;
thicker cuts shonld be placed 3-5 inches from
the beat. Broil nntil tile top of the meat is
bro_xmed. It should be approximately half cooked
by the time tile top is bro'_md.
Broiling is a inethod of cooking used for tender
steaks, chops, hamburgers chicken, fish, and
some fruits and vegetables. The food is placed
directly under the element. The degree of
doneness is determined bv the distance between
the meat and the element, and the length of
