tips
Select a pan that is about the same size
as the surface unit.
NOTE: For best results and greater
energy efficiency, use only flat-bottomed
cookware that makes good contact with
the surface units. Cookware with rounded,
warped, ribbed (such as some porcelain
enamelware) or dented bottoms could
cause severe overheating, which damages
the cookware and/or surface unit.
You can, however, use newer cookware
with slightly indented bottoms or very small
expansion channels. This cookware is
specially designed to provide the good
contact needed for best cooking results.
Also, woks, canners and teakettles with
flat bottoms suitable for use on your
cooktop are now available in most stores
that sell housewares.
The pan should have straight sides and a
tight-fitting lid.
Choose medium to heavy gauge (thickness) pans that are fairly lightweight.
The pan material (metal or glass) affects
how fast heat transfers from the surface
unit through the pan material and how
Product Damage Hazard
If a surface unit stays red for a long
time, the bottom of the pan is not flat
enough or is too small for the surface
unit. Prolonged usage of incorrect
utensils coukl result in damage to the
surface unit, cooktop, wiring and
surrounding areas. To prevent damage, use correct utensils, start cooking
on HI and turn control down to continue cooking.
Do not leave an empty utensil, or one
which has boiled dry, on a hot surface
unit. The utensil could overheat and
could damage the utensil or surface
unit.

information
To protect your range:
l Use flat-bottomed
canners/pans for best
resutts.
l
l
l
l
l
Use the largest surface unit for best
resufts. Also, use a canner/pan which can
be centered over the surface unit and
which does not extend more than one inch
outside surface unit area. Large diameter
canners/pans, if not properly centered, trap
heat and can cause damage to the
cooktop.
Do not place canner on two surface units
at the same time. Too much heat will build
up and will damage the cook-top.
Start with hot water. This reduces the
time the control is set on high. Reduce
heat setting to lowest position needed to
keep water boiling.
Keep reflector bowls clean for best heat
reflection.
To prolong the life of the elements:
- Prepare small batches at a time.
- Do not use elements for canning all
day.
Positioning
racks
The large diameter of most water-bath or
pressure canners combined with high heat
settings for long periods of time can shorten
the life of regular surface units and cause
damage to the cooktop.
If you plan to use the cooktop for canning,
we recommend the installation of a Canning
Kit. Order the kii (Part No. 242905) from
your Roper dealer or authorized Roper
service company.
and pans
For baking/roasting with one rack, place
the rack so the top of the food will be
centered in the oven.
NOTE: For recommended rack placement
when broiling, see “Broiling rack position
chart” on page 13.

Personal injury Hazard
*Always position oven rack(s) in
desired location before turning oven
on. Be sure the rack(s) is level.
l If rack(s) must be moved while oven
is hot, use potholders or oven mitts to
protect hands.
Failure to follow the above precautions
could result in personal injury.
When baking on two racks, arrange racks
on bottom and third level from bottom.
9
For best air circulation
Hot air must circulate around the pans in the
oven for even heat to reach all parts of the
oven. This results in better baking.
l Place the pans so that one is not directly
over the other.
l For best results, allow 1% to 2 inches
(4-5 cm) of space around each pan and
between pans and oven walls. There must
be a minimum space of 1 inch (2.5 cm).
l Use only one cookie sheet in the oven at
one time.
Use the following as a guide to determine
where to place the pans:
One pan
Place in the center of the oven rack.
Two pans
Place in opposite corners of the oven rack.
Three or four pans
Place in opposite corners on each oven
rack. Stagger pans so no pan is directly over
another.
Using
aluminum
foil for baking
Use aluminum foil to catch spillovers
from pies or casseroles:
l Place the foil on the oven rack below the
rack with the food. Turn up foil edges and
make sure foil is about 1 inch (3 cm)
l
l
larger all around than the dish holding the
food.
Do not cover the entire rack with aluminum foil. It will reduce air circulation and
cause poor cooking results.
Do not line oven bottom or entire oven
rack with foil or other liners, Poor baking
will result.
Electrical Shock and Fire Hazard
Do not allow foil to touch the heating
elements.
Failure to follow this precaution could
result in electrical shock or fire hazard
and damage to the elements.
10
Baking/roasting
1. Position the rack(s) properly before
turning on the oven. To change rack
positron, lift rack at front and pull out.
For further information, sea ‘Positioning
racks and pans” on page 9.
2. Set the Oven Selector to BAKE.
3. Set the Oven Temperature Control Knob
to the baking/roasting temperature you
want. The OVEN HEATING Indicator
Light will come on. The oven is preheated
when the OVEN HEATING Indicator Light
first goes off.
NOTE: Do not preheat oven when
roasting or cooking items such as
casseroles.
4. Put food in the oven. During baking/
roasting, the elements will turn on and off
to maintain the temperature setting. The
OVEN HEATING Indicator Light will turn
on and off with the elements.
NOTE: The top element helps heat
during baking/roasting, but does not
turn red.
5. When baking/roasting is done, turn
both the Oven Selector and the Oven
Temperature Control Knob to OFF. The
OVEN HEATING Indicator Light will go
Off.
11
Adjusting
the oven temperature
control
Oven temperature controls will gradually shift after
years of use. So, even though your new oven is
properly adjusted to provide accurate temperatures, it may cook faster or slower than your old
oven.
If, after using the oven for a perii of time, you
are not satisfied with the temperature settings, you
can change them by following these steps:
1. Make sure the Oven Temperature
Control
Knob is turned to the off position. Pull knob
straight off and flip it over.
2. Loosen the locking screws inside the control
knob. Note the position of the notches.
3. To lower the temperature, hold knob handle
firmly and move the tooth a notch counterclockwise. Each notch equals about 5°F
(2.5%).
4. To raise the temperature, hold knob handle
firmly and move the tooth a notch clockwise.
Each notch equals about 5°F (2.5%).
5. Tighten the locking screws and replace the
control knob.
Broiling
1. Position the rack properly before turning on
the oven. Position rack so that the surface of
the food is at least 3 inches (7.4 cm) away from
the broil element. See “Broiling rack position
chart” on page 13.
2. Put the broiler pan and food on the rack.
3. Close the door to the Broil Stop position (open
about 4 inches [lo.2 cm]). The door will stay
open by itself.
4. Set the Oven Selector and Oven Temperature
Control Knob to BROIL. The OVEN HEATING
Indicator Light will come on.
NOTE: Do not preheat oven when broiling.

If food Is cooking too fast, turn the Oven
Temperature Control Knob counterclockwise until the OVEN HEATING Indicator
Light goes off.
l
l
If you want the food to broil slower from
the start, set the Oven Temperature
Control Knob between 170°F and 325°F
(77% and 163°C). These temperature
settings allow the broil heating element to
cycle and to slow cooking. The lower the
temperature, the slower the cooking.
Fish and chicken are some foods that
may cook better if you use lower broiling
temperatures.
The Oven Selector must be on BROIL for
all broiling temperatures.
NOTE: Leave the oven door partly open
whenever using the oven to broil. This
allows the oven to maintain proper
temperatures.

Broiling
l
l
tips
Use the broiler pan and grid for broiling.
They are designed to drain excess liquid
and grease away from the cooking surface
to help prevent spatter, smoke or fire.
After broiling, remove the broiler pan
from the oven when you remove the food.
Drippings will bake on the pan if you leave
it in the heated oven.
Energy
saving
Place meat the correct distance from
the element. Meat placed too close to
the element could spatter, smoke, burn
or catch fire during broiling.
.To ensure adequate grease drainage,
do not use cookie sheets or similar
pans for broiling. Also, covering the
broiler grid with foil is not recommended. Poor drainage of grease could
result in fire. If foil is used, cut slits in
foil to line up with all openings in broiler
grid. Grease can then drain away and
cool in pan.
l
tips
Although the energy used for cooking is
usualfy a very small percentage of the total
energy used in the home, cooking energy
can be used efficiently. Here are some tips
to help you save energy when using your
cooking product:
l Use pans with flat bottoms, straight sides
and tight-fiiing lids.
l Match the pan to the surface unit size.
l Cook with a minimum of liquid or fat to
help shorten cooking time.
l Preheat pans only when recommended
and for the shortest time possible.
l Start food on higher heat settings, then set
surface unit control on low or off to finish
cooking. Use retained heat for cooking
when possible.
l Use the more efficient surface units
instead of the oven when possible.
14
Fire Hazard
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
Turn on the surface unit only after placing
filled pan on the unit.
“Oven peeking” may cause heat loss,
longer cooking times and unsatisfactory
baking results. Rely on your timer to keep
track of the cooking time.
Bake cakes, pies or cookies when oven is
warm. Best time to bake is right after a
meal has been cooked in oven.
Preheat the oven no longer than
necessary.
Plan your meals for the most eff Cent use
of the range. When using the oven to cook
one food, try to cook the rest of the meal in
it also.
Do not preheat when broiling, roasting or
cooking items such as casseroles.
Keep reflector bowls clean for best heat
reflection.
The oven vent
Hot air and moisture escape from the oven
through a vent under the right rear surface
unit. You can cook on the unit or keep food
warm on it while the oven is on. The vent is
needed for air circulation. Do not block the
vent. Poor baking/roasting can result.
NOTE: Plastic utensils left over the vent can
melt.
Burn and Fire Hazard
If you leave a utensil on the right rear
surface unit, use potholders when
moving it. Pan handles could become
hot enough to burn.
*Keep flammable materials away from
oven vent. Failure to do so could result
in burns or a fire.
l
The storage
drawer
You can remove the storage drawer to make
it easier to clean under the range and to
check for installation of the anti-tip floor
bracket (if you have one). Use care when
handling the drawer.
Removing the storage drawer:
1. Empty drawer of any pots and pans before
removing drawer. Pull drawer straight out
to the first stop. Lift front and pull out to
the second stop.
2. Lift back slightly and slide drawer all the
way out.
Replacing the storage drawer:
1. Fit ends of drawer slide rails into the
drawer guides on both sides of opening.
2. Lift drawer front and push in until metal
stops on drawer slide rails clear white
stops on drawer guides. Lift drawer front
again to clear second stop and slide
drawer closed.

The anti-tip
bracket
The range will not tip during normal use. However, tipping can occur if you apply too much
force or weight to the open door without the anti-tip bracket properly secured.
Personal Injury Hazard
*To reduce risk of range tipping over, secure range with a properly
installed anti-tip bracket supplied with range or an optional wallmounted anti-tip bracket kit.

NOTE: Reflector bowls reflect heat back to
the utensils on the surface units. They also
help catch spills. When they are kept clean,
they reflect heat better and look new longer.
If a reflector bowl gets discolored, some of
your utensils may not be flat enough, or
some may be too large for the surface unit.
In either case, some of the heat that’s meant
to go into or around a utensil goes down and
heats the reflector bowl. This extra heat can
discolor it.
