Never Use Your Cooktop for Warming or Heating
the Room.
Do Not Leave Children Alone - Children should not
be left alone or unattended in area where cooktop is
in use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand
on any part of the cooktop.
Wear Proper Apparel - Loose-fitting or hanging

DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS OR AREAS
NEAR UNITS - Surface units may be hot even
though they are dark in color. Areas near surface
units may become hot enough to cause burns.
During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing
or other flammable materials contact surface units
or areas near units until they have had sufficient
time to cool. Among those areas are the cooktop
and surfaces facing the cooktop.
Use Proper Pan Size - This cooktop is equipped
with one or more surface units of different size.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
•,
•
Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not
Extend Over Adjacent Surface Units - To reduce the
risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and
spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil,
the handle of a utensil should be positioned so that it
is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent

Do Not Cook on Broken Cooktop - If cooktop should
break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may
penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of
electric shock. Contact a qualified technician
immediately.
•
Clean Cooktop With Caution - If a wet sponge or
cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area,
be careful to avoid steam burn. Some cleaners can
produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.

COOKTOP
USE
C,e]'amlc (,lass
The surface cooking area will glow red when an element is on. It
will cycle on and off, at all settings, to maintain the selected heat
level.
It is normal for the surface of white ceramic glass to appear to
change color when surface cooking areas are hot. As the glass
cools, it will return to its original color.
Wiping off the cooktop before and after each use will help keep it
free from stains and provide the most even heating. For more
information, see "General Cleaning" section.
Fire Hazard
•
Do not store jars or cans above the cooktop. Dropping a
heavy or hard object on the cooktop could crack it.
•
Do not leave a hot lid on the cooktop. As the cooktop cools,
air can become trapped between the lid and the cooktop,
and the ceramic glass could break when the lid is removed.
•
Clean up sugary spills and soils as soon as hot surface
indicator light goes off. If not wiped up while warm, surface
pitting can occur.
•
Lift pots and pans on and off the cooktop. Sliding pots, pans
and skillets that have aluminum or copper bases could leave
permanent scratches and marks on the cooktop.
•
Do not cook popcorn in prepackaged aluminum containers
on the cooktop. It could leave aluminum marks that cannot
be removed completely.
•
Do not allow objects that could melt, like plastic or aluminum
foil, to touch any part of the entire cooktop.
Turn off all controls when done cooking.
Failure to do so can result in death or fire.
The control knobs can be set anywhere between HI and LO. Push
in and turn to setting. The surface cooking area Iocator shows
which element is turned on. Use the following chart as a guide
when setting heat levels.

Use flat-bottomed
cookware for best heat conduction and
energy efficiency. Cookware with rounded, warped, ribbed or
dented bottoms could cause uneven heating and poor
cooking results.
Determine flatness by placing the straight edge of a ruler
across the bottom of the cookware. While rotating the ruler,
no space or light should be visible between it and the
cookware.
Cookware designed with slightly indented bottoms or small
expansion channels can be used.
Make sure the bottoms of pots and pans are clean and dry
before using them. Residue and water can leave deposits

Cookware
IMPORTANT: Never leave empty cookware on a hot surface
cooking area, element or surface burner.
Ideal cookware should have a flat bottom, straight sides, a wellfitting lid and the material should be of medium-to-heavy
thickness.

Cookware material is a factor in how quickly and evenly heat is
transferred, which affects cooking results. A non-stick finish has
the same characteristics as its base material. For example,
aluminum cookware with a non-stick finish will take on the
