Cookware
Use of correct cookware can affect the cooking
performance and cleaning of your cooktop. The
correct cookware reduces the temperature of the
glass ceramic surface and minimizes the chance of
spillovers burning onto the surface units.
Use pans with thick, flat, smooth bottoms. Slightly
concave pans give acceptable results. Do not expect
good results from convex bottom pans. To check the
flatness of your pan try one of the the following tests:
1. Turn the bottom of the pan up.
Place the edge of a ruler across
the bottom of the pan. Little or
no light should be visible
under the ruler.
2. Another simple test to determine even heat
distribution across the cookware bottom is to
put one inch of water in the pan. Bring the water
to a boil and observe the location of bubbles as the
water starts to boil. Good flat cookware will have
an even distribution of bubbles over the bottom
surface area of the pan. Bubbles localized in only
a portion of the bottom indicate uneven contact of
the pan to the surface unit, uneven heat transfer or
an unsuitable pan.
Use pans that match the diameter of the surface
unit. Cooking performance will not be as good if
the cookware is either smaller or larger than the
surface unit.
The following information will help you choose
cookware which will give good performance.
Stainless Steel: highly recommended
Especially good with a sandwich clad bottom. The
sandwich bottom combines the benefits of stainless
steel (appearance, durability, and stability) with the
advantages of aluminum or copper (heat conduction,
even heat distribution).
Aluminum: heu~j’ weight recommended
Good conductivity. Aluminum residues sometimes
appear as scratches on the cooktop, but can be removed
if cleaned immediately. Because of its low melting
point, thin weight aluminum should not be used.
Copper Bottom:
Good performance, but copper may leave residues
which can appear as scratches. The residues can be
removed, as long as the cooktop is cleaned immediately.
Porcelain/enamel:
Good performance only with a thick, flat, smooth
bottom. Avoid boiling dry, as porcelain can melt and
fuse to the surface.
Glass-ceramic: not recommended
Poor performance. May scratch surface. Usable, but
not recommended.
Stoneware: not recommended
Poor performance. Will scratch the surface.
Cast Iron: not recommended
Poor performance. Will scratch the surface.

CARE AND CLEANING
Proper care and cleaning are important so your cooktop will give you
efficient and satisfactory service. If soil, mineral deposits from evaporated
water spills or metal rub-off from aluminum cookware is not removed it
will burn on the surface and cause permanent discoloration. Follow these
directions carefully in caring for your cooktop to assure safe and proper
maintenance.
Be sure that controls are turned off and that the unit is cool before cleaning.
Do not use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop. The fumes can be hazardous
to your health and can chemically attfick the surface.
Removal of Packaging Tape
The safest way to remove adhesive left from packing tape on new appliances
to assure no damage is done to the finish of the product is an application of
a household liquid dishwashing detergent, mineral oil or cooking oil. Apply
with a soft cloth and allow to soak. Wipe dry and then apply an appliance
polish to thoroughly clean and protect the surface. This procedure is also
safe for the face of microwave doors and other plastic and lexan parts.
NOTE: The plastic tape that is not removed from the chrome trim on range
parts cannot be removed if baked on.
Control Knobs
The control knobs may be removed for easier
cleaning.
Before removing the knobs for cleaning, please note
that the knobs are in the proper OFF position. When
replacing the knobs, check the OFF position to insure
proper placement.
The knob stem has a groove in each side. The
groove on one side has a spring clip. The other groove
is clear (see illustration). Check the inside of the knob
and find the molded rib. Replace the knob by fitting
the molded rib inside the knob into the clear groove
on the stem. Wash the knobs in soap and water or a
vinegar and hot water solution but do not soak.
Hint: Slip a thin cloth (such as a handkerchief or a
piece of string under and around the knob edge and
pull up. Clean the knobs with detergent and warm
water, using a soft cloth. Do not scour the knobs.
Clear Groove
in Stem
Stainless Steel Frame
Use the same cleaning methods as those described for the glass ceramic top
with the exception of using a scraper. Do not scrape the frame as this will
damage the metal surface.

Canning should be done on cooktop only.
Pots that extend beyond 1 inch of surface unit’s edge
are not recommended for most surface cooking.
However, when canning with water-bath or pressure
canner, large-diameter pots may be used. This is
because boiling water temperatures (even under
pressure) are not harmful to cooktop surfaces
surrounding surface unit.
HOWEVER, DO NOT USE LARGE DIAMETER
CANNERS OR OTHER LARGE DIAMETER
COOKWARE FOR FRYING OR BOILING FOODS
OTHER THAN WATER. Most syrup or sauce
mixtures—and all types of frying—cook at
temperatures much higher than boiling water. Such
temperatures could eventually harm cooktop surfaces.
Observe Following Points in Canning
1. Be sure canner fits over center of surface unit.
If your cooktop or its location do not allow canner
to be centered on the surface unit, use smallerdiameter pots for good canning results.
2. Flat-bottomed canners must be used. Do not use
canners with flanged or rippled bottoms (often
found in enamelware) because they don’t lmake
enough contact with the surface unit and take too
long to boil water.
RIGHT
WRONG
CAUTION
Safe canning requires that harmful microorganisms
are destroyed and that the jars are sealed
completely. When canning foods in a water bath
canner, a gentle but steady boil must be maintained
continuously for the required time. When canning
foods in a pressure canner, the pressure must be
maintained continuously for the required time.
After you have adjusted the controls, it is very
important to make sure the prescribed boil or
pressure levels are maintained for the required time.
3. When canning, use recipes and procedures from
reputable sources. Reliable recipes and procedures
are available from the manufacturer of your canner;
manufacturers of glass jars for canning, such as
Ball and Kerr; and the United States Department
of Agriculture Extension Service.
4. Remember that canning is a process that generates
large amounts of steam. To avoid burns from steam
or heat, be careful when canning.
NOTE: If your house has low voltage, canning may
take longer than expected, even though directions
have been carefully followed. The process time will
be shortened by:
(1) using a pressure canner, and
(2) starting with HOT tap water for fastest heating of
large quantities of water.
This cooktop has temperature limiters that prevent
the cooktop from getting too hot. If the bottom of
your canner is not flat, the surface unit can
overheat, triggering the temperature limiters to
turn the surface unit off for a time. This will stop
the boil or reduce the pressure in the canner.
Since you must make sure to process the canning
jars for the prescribed time, with no interruption
in processing time, you cannot can on this cooktop
if your canner is not flat enough.

Because the units heat by conduction, the cooktop surfaces may seem hotter
than you are used to. This is normal. Make sure flat-bottomed pans are used.
Improper cookware being used. Pan bottoms should be flat, fairly heavy weight
and the same diameter as the surface units selected.
SURFACE UNITS DO NOT
WORK PROPERLY
Difficulty may be in the main distribution panel of your house, caused by a
blown oven-circuit fuse, a tripped oven-circuit breaker, the main fuse or the
main circuit breaker, depending on the nature of the power supply. If a circuit
breaker is involved, reset it. If the control box uses fuses, the oven fuse
(a cartridge-type) should be changed, BUT ONLY BY SOMEONE FAMILIAR
WITH ELECTRICAL CIRCUITS. If after performing one of these procedures,
the fuse blows or circuit breaker trips again, call for service.
NOTE: Apartment tenants or condominium owners should ask their building
management to perform this check before calling for service.
● Cooktop surface unit controls are not properly set, or the wrong control knob
