READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
WARNING
—TO REDUCE THE
RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK OR
INJURY TO PERSONS, OBSERVE THE
FOLLOWING:
A. Use this unit only in the manner intended
by the manufacturer. If you have questions,
contact the manufacturer.
B. Before servicing or cleaning unit, switch

WARNING
—TO REDUCE THE

A. Never leave surface units unattended at high
settings. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that may ignite. Heat oils slowly on
low or medium settings.

heat or when flambéing food (i.e. Crepes
Suzette, Cherries Jubilee, Peppercorn Beef

fan or filter.
D. Use proper pan size. Always use cookware
appropriate for the size of the surface
element.

INJURY TO PERSONS, OBSERVE THE
FOLLOWING:
A. Installation work and electrical wiring must
be done by qualified person(s)in accordance
with all applicable codes and standards,
including fire-related construction.
B. Sufficient air is needed for proper
combustion and exhausting of gases
through the flue (chimney) of fuel burning
equipment to prevent back drafting. Follow
the heating equipment manufacturer’s
guideline and safety standards such as those
published by the National Fire Protection
Association (NFPA), and the American
Society for Heating, Refrigeration and
Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE),
and the local code authorities.
C. When cutting or drilling into wall or ceiling,
do not damage electrical wiring and other
hidden utilities.
D. Ducted fans must always be vented to
the outdoors.

Apply cleaner with a damp sponge. Use a clean,
hot, damp cloth to remove cleaner. Dry with a
dry, clean cloth. Always scrub lightly in the
direction of the grain.
After cleaning, use a stainless steel polish, such
as Stainless Steel Magic®, Revere Copper and
Stainless Steel Cleaner®, or Wenol All Purpose
Metal Polish®. Follow the product instructions
for cleaning the stainless steel surface.
For hard-to-clean soil, use a standard stainless
steel cleaner, such as Bon-Ami® or Cameo®.
