Avoid using dishes with milk or eggs, cream soups, cooked meats or fish, or any item with baking powder or yeast. Smoked or frozen meats may be used; so can vegetables, fruits and casseroletype foods. Vegetables can be cooked in 8 a covered baking dish with about a halfcup (118 mL) of water for 1 to 1% hours. Any food that has to wait for cooking to start should be very cold or frozen before it is put in the oven.

There are three differences you should keep in mind 1. FOR BEST RESULTS, PROPER COOKWARE MUST BE USED... Bottoms must be perfectly flat, with NO ridges, rims, patterns, dents, roughness or scratches. Wipe up spills when the top cools. If a wet cloth steams, the top is too hot. The longer you cook with a spillover on the smoothtop, the harder it will be to remove the spill. Avoiding damage... l Rough cookware, jewelry, salt, sand, knives, etc., can scratch the surface. Use only smooth cookware; wipe the surface before using. DO NOT use the smoothtop as a cutting board. l Sugary spills can cause pitting. Wipe a spill when the surface cools. l Pans that aren’t flat can cause hot spots that can crack the surface. l Spilling ice-cold water on a hot surface may crack it. l Dropping heavy or hard objects on the cooktop can crack it. Don’t store jars or cans above the smoothtop. l Pans with uneven bottoms cause poor cooking results and can damage the cooktop. l Pans with nicks, scratches or a rough surface can damage the cooktop. l Aluminum and copper can leave marks if slid across the cooktop. l 2. COOKING IS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT... The glass surface takes longer to heat up than a regular surface unit. It also takes longer to cool down. Turn off the unit a few minutes before you are finished cooking Removing stains... 1.

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 the utensils used may not be flat enough. Or some may be too large for the surface unit. In either case, some of the heat that is meant to go into or around a utensil goes down and heats the reflector bowl. This extra heat can discolor it. USING THE SELF-CLEANING CYCLE The self-cleaning cycle uses very hlgh heat to burn away soil. Before you start, make sure you understand exactly how to use the cycle safely. BEFORE YOU START 1. Clean areas that may not be cleaned during the cycle. Use hot water and detergent or a soapy steel-wool pad on... l the frame around the oven l the inside of the door, especially the part outside the oven seal. DO NOT try to clean the fiberglass seal. DO NOT move It or bend It. Remove any pots or pans you may have stored in the oven They can’t stand the soil or grease. This will during the cleaning Clean Door Clean 18 Frame SPECIAL TIPS 1. Ket?p the kitchen well ventilated during the cleaning cycle to help get rid of normal heat od 31s and smoke 4. Oven racks lose their shine, discolor and become harder to slide on their guides when they are left in the oven during the cleaning cycle To make them slide easier, polish the edges of the racks and rack guides with a soapy steel-wool pad, rinse well. and wipe on 7 thin coat of salad 011 2. If the cleaning cycle doesn’t get the oven as clean as you expected, the cycle may not have been set long enough. Set the cleaning time longer for heavier soil. To stop the cleaning cycle after it has started, l Turn the Stop Ime Knob clockwise until the hand points to the right time of day l Turn the Oven Selector and Oven Temperature Control to OFF l When the oven cools, you can open the door Wait until the oven IS cool. Clean the oven before It gets heavily soiled. Cleaning a very soiled oven takes longer and results in more smoke than usual 5. 3. SPECIAL CAUTIONS DO NOT use foil or other liners in the oven. During the cleaning cycle, they can burn or melt. DO NOT touch the range during the cleaning cycle It caq burn you. DO NOT use commercial oven cleaners in your oven Damage to the porcelain finish may occur. DO NOT block the vent during the cleaning cycle Air must move freely for best results 1. Make sure the clock and start and stop time dials all have the right time of day. 2. Push in the Stop lime Knob and turn the hand clockwise about two or three hours. (Two hours for light soil; three or more for heavier soil.) 3. Set the Oven Selector to CLEAN. The Clean Light will come on and the door will lock automatically. 19 6. 4. Set the Oven Temperature Control to CLEAN. 5. The Lock Light comes on when the oven gets above normal baking temperatures. The door can’t be unlocked when the Lock Light is on. 7. Turn the Oven Tempeyature Control to,O,FF. 8. After the oven Is cool, wipe off any residue or ash with a damp cloth. If needed, touch up spots with cleanser or soapy steel-wool Dad. ~ When the Lock Light goes off, turn the Oven Selectorto OFF. This unlocks the door. DO NOT TOUCH THE RANGE DURING THE CLEANING CYCLE. IT CAN BURN YOU. HOW IT WORKS During the self-cleaning cycle, the oven gets much hotter than it does for baking or broiling...approximately 870’ F (466. C). This heat breaks up grease and soil, and burns it off. The graph shows approximate temperatures and times during a selfcleaning cycle set for two hours.
