Select a pan with a flat bottom
that is about the same size as the
surface unit. If pan is smaller than
the surface unit, some of the heating element will be exposed and
may result in the igniting of
clothing or potholders. Correct
pan size also improves cooking
efficiency.
Never leave surface units unattended at high heat settings. A
boil-over could result and cause
smoking and greasy spill-overs
that may ignite.
Make sure the reflector bowls are
in place during cooking. Cooking
without reflector bowls may subject the wirin and components
underneath ta em to damage.
Do not line reflector bowls with
aluminum foil or other liners, Improper installation of these liners
may result in a risk of electric
shock or fire.
Check to be sure glass cooking
utensils are safe for use on the
cooktop. Only certain types of
glass, glass-ceramic, ceramic,
earthenware or other glazed
utensils are suitable for cooktops
without breaking due to the
sudden change in temperature.

I Turn pan handles inward, but not
over other surface units. This will
help reduce the chance of burns,
igniting of flammable materials,
and spills due to bumping of the
pan.
I Do not soak removable heating
elements in water. The element will
be damaged and shock or fire
could result.
) Use care when opening oven
door. Let hot arr or steam escape
before removing or replacing
food.
b Do not heat unopened containers.
They could explode. The hot
contents could cause burns and
container particles could cause
injury
BKeep range vents unobstructed.
b Always position oven racks in
desired location while oven is
cool. If rack must be moved while
oven is hot, do not let potholder

want above the range. Children
could be burned or Injured while
climbing on it.
. Do not touch surface units, areas
near units, heating elements or
interior surfaces of oven. Surface
units and heating elements may
be hot even though they are dark
in color. Areas near surface units
and interior surfaces of an oven
become hot enough to cause
burns. During and after use, do not
touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials contact surface
units, areas near units, heating elements or interior surfaces of oven
until they have had sufficient time
to cool. Other surfaces of the
range may become hot enough

Cookware
There is no one brand of utensil that is best for all people. Knowing something
about pan materials and construction will help you select the right cooking
utensils for your needs.
1. Use only
flat-bottomed utensils that make good contact with the surface units.
To check the flatness of a utensil:
l Turn it over and check the bottom of the pan by placing
a ruler across it.
l Rotate the ruler in all directions.
There should be no gaps between the pan
and the ruler.
2. The pan should have straight sides and a tight-fitting lid.
3. Choose medium to heavy gauge (thickness] pans that are fairly lightweight.
Remember that a very heavy pan will be even heavier when filled with food.
6
4. The pan material (metal or glass) affects how fast heat transfers from the
surface unit through the pan material and how evenly heat spreads over
the pan bottom.
5. Handles should be made of a sturdy, heat-resistant material and be
securely attached to the pan.
l

Burn, Personal Injury and Product Damage
Hazard
If the pan is too small for the surface unit, you could be burned by the
heat from the exposed
section of the surface unit. Use correctly
sized
cooking
utensils to prevent injury.
Not all glass, glass-ceramic,
ceramic,
earthenware
and other glazed
utensils are safe for cooktop
cooking. Some will crack or break with
sudden temperature
changes,
which could result in personal
injury.
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 for long periods of tlme can 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. It can overheat
and may damage
the utensil or surface
unit.
Do not use canners, woks and specialty
utensils with rounded, warped,
ridged or dented bottoms. These could cause severe overheating
which damages
the utensil and/or surface unit.
Home Canning Information
To Protect Your Range:
1. Use flat-bottomed canners
for best results. Do not use canners with dented or
ridged (porcelain enamel-ware) bottoms. They do not make good COntaCt
with the surface unit and cause severe over-heating which damages the
cook-top.
2. For best results, use a canner which can be centered over the surface Unit.
Large diameter canners, if not properly centered, trap heat and can cause
damage to the cooktop.
3. Do not place canner on two surface units at the same time. Excessive heat
build-up will damage the cooktop.
4. Alternate surface units. This allows the surface units to cool down between
batches.
5. 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.
6.
Keep reflector bowls clean for best heat reflection.
7. To prolong the life of the elements:
l Prepare small batches
at a time.
l Do not use elements for canning
all day.
Optional Canning Kit
(Part NO. 242905)
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.
lf YOUplan to use the cooktop for canning, we recommend the installation of a
Canning Kit. Order the kit from your Whirlpool dealer or authorized Whirlpool’”
service company.

off with the elements.
The top element helps heat
during baking, but does not
turn red.
How To Position Racks and Pans
The rack(s) should be placed so the top of the food will be centered in the
oven. Always leave at least IYzto 2 inches (4-5 cm) between the sides of the
pan and the oven walls and other pans.
For proper
l
l
l
cooking,
follow
these guidelines
for specific
foods:
Angel and bundt cake pans, yeast breads, frozen pies, large roasts and
turkeys - place rack on lowest level
Casseroles, muffins, most quick breads and meats - place rack on second
level from bottom
Cookies, biscuits, cakes and non-frozen pies - place rack on second or third
level from bottom
When baking on two racks, arrange racks on bottom and third level from
bottom.
Fire and Personal Injury Hazard
. Always position oven racks in desired location
before turning oven on.
Be sure the racks are level.
l If racks
must be moved while oven is hot, use potholders
or oven mitts
to protect hands.
l Do not let potholders
or oven mitts contact
hot heating elements.
l Always
use a dry potholder
or oven mitt to change racks or handle
utensils in the oven. Do not use a damp potholder
or oven mitt. Steam
burns could result.
Failure to follow the above precautions
may result in fire or personal
injury.
The hot air must circulate around
the pans in the oven for even heat
to reach all parts of the oven.
For Best Air Circulation:
Place the pans so that one is not
directly over the other.
l Allow IYz-2 inches (4-5 cm) of space
around each pan and between
pans and oven walls.
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.
l
One Pan
Place in the center of the oven rack.
Two Pans
Place in opposite corners of the
oven rack.
NOTE: “Oven peeking” may cause
heat loss, longer cooking times and
unsatisfactory baking or roasting
results. Rely on your timer.
Broiling
Selling the Oven Controls
1. Position
the rack properly before
turning on the oven. The oven rack
should be positioned so that the
surface of the food is at least 3
inches (7.4 cm) away from the
broil element.
2. Put the broiler pan and food on
the rack.
12
3. Close the door to the Broil Stop
position (open about 4 inches,
10.2 cm]. The door will stay open
bv itself.
NOTE: The door must be partly
open whenever the oven is set to
BROIL.Leaving the door open
allows the oven to maintain
proper temperatures.
4. Set the Oven Selector and Oven
Temperature Control to BROIL.The
OVEN HEATING Indicator Light will
come on.
NOTE: Do not preheat oven when
broiling.
5. When broiling is done, turn both
the Oven Selector and Oven Temperature Control to OFF.The OVEN
HEATING Indicator Light will go off.
Custom Broil
If food is cooking too fast, turn the Oven Temperature Control counterclockwise
until the OVEN HEATING Indicator Light goes off.
If you want the food to broil slower from the start, set the Oven Temperature
Control between 150” and 325°F (65.5” and 162.7%). The lower the temperature, the slower the cooking.
l
l
Broiling Tips
Use the broiler pan and grid for broiling. They are designed to drain excess
liquid and fat away from the cooking surface to help prevent spatter, smoke
or fire.
Refer to a broiling chart in a reliable cookbook for correct broiling times.
After broiling, remove the broiler pan from the oven when you remove the
food. Drippings will bake on the pan if it is left in the heated oven.
l
l
l
l
l
Fire Hazard
Place meat the correct distance
from the element. Meat placed too
close to the element may 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 may result in fire. If foil is
used, cut slits in foil to correspond
with all openings
in broiler grid.
Grease can then drain away and cool in pan.

Adjusting the Oven Temperature Control
Does your oven seem hotter or colder than your old oven? The temperature of
your otd oven may have shifted gradually without your noticing the change.
Your new oven is properly adjusted to provide accurate temperatures. But
when compared to your old oven, the new design may give you different
results.
If after using the oven for a period of time, you are not satisfied with the temperature settings, they can be adjusted by following these steps:
LOCKING
1. Pull the
