tips
There is no one brand of cooking 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.
l Use only flat-bottomed
utensils that make good
contact with the surface units. To check the
flatness of a utensil:
-Turn it over and check the bottom of the pan
by placing a ruler across it.
-Rotate the ruler in all directions. There should
be no gaps between the pan and the ruler.
NOTE: Woks, canners and teakettles with flat
bottoms suitable for use on your cooktop are
now available in most houseware stores or
departments.
l The pan should have straight sides and a tightfitting lid.
l 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.
l 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.
l Handles
should be made of a sturdy, heatresistant material and be securely attached to
the pan.
l Do not leave an empty utensil, or one which has
boiled dry, on a hot surface unit. lt can overheat
and may damage the utensil or surface unit.
l Do not use canners,
woks and specialty utensils
with rounded, warped, ridged or dented tottoms. These could cause severe overheating
which damages the utensil and/or surface unit.
I
Product Danlege Hazard
If a surface unit stays rel for a long time,
the bottom of the pan is not flat enough or
is too small for the suria?s unit. Prolonged
usage of incorrect uterus 1:sfor long periods
of time can resutl in damage to the surface
unit, cooktop, wiring and surrounding areas.
To prevent damage, use correct utensils,
start cooking on HI and t IJrn control down to
continue cooking.

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 overheating which damages the
=-)PFor best results, use the largest surface unit.
Also, 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.
Do not place canner on twu surface units at the
same time. Excessive heat build-up will damage
the cooktop.
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
ref &ion.
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 mo!51rvater-bath or
pressure canners combine! with high heat
settings for long periods c# time can shorten the
life of regular surface units and cause damage to
the cooktop.
tf you plan to use the cot CIop for canning, we
recommend the installatio’n trf a Canning Kit.
Order the kit (Part No. 24:2!05) from your
Whirlpool dealer or autholii ed WhirlpooP”
service company.
and pans
For baking/roasting with one rack, the rack
should be placed so the top of the food will be
centered in the oven. Always leave at least 1’12 to
2 inches (4-5 cm) between the sides of the pan
and the oven walls and other pans.

For best
air circulation
.-
Hot air must circulate around the pans in the oven
for even heat to reach all parts of the oven.
l Place the pans so that one is not directly over
the other.
l Allow 1 ‘B-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.
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.
NOTE: “Oven peeking” may cause heat loss.
longer cooking times and unsatisfactory baking or
roasting results. Use a reliable kitchen timer to
keep track of the cooking time.
Using aluminum
baking
foil
forri
Use aluminum foil to catch spillovers from pies or
casseroles.
l Place the foil on the oven rack below the rack
with the food. The foil should have the edges
turned up and be about 1 inch (3 cm) larger all
around than the dish hotding the food.
l Do not cover the entire rack with aluminum
foil.
lt will reduce air circulation and cause poor
cooking results.
l Do not line oven bottom with foil or other liners.
Poor baking will result.
Electrical Shock and Flre Hazard
Do not allow foil to touch the heating
elements because it will damage them and
could result in shock or fire hazard.

Adjusting
the oven
temperature
contl’ol
Does your oven seem hotter or colder than your
old oven? The temperature of your old oven may
have shifted gradually without you 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 folbwing these steps:
1. Turn the Oven Temperature Control Knob to
;hivt
position. Pull knob straight off and flip
2. Loosen the locking screws inside the control
knob. Note the posftbn
of the notchee.

4. To raise the temperature,
hold knob handle
firmly and move the tooth a notch clockwise.
Each notch equals about 5°F (2.5%).
Tlghten the locking screws and replace the
control knob.
Broiling
1. Position the rack property before turning on
the oven. The oven rack should be positioned
so that the surface of the food ls at least 3 inches (7.4 cm) away from the broil element.
See ‘Positioning racks and pans’ on page 9.
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 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

broil
tf food is cooking too fast, turn the Oven
Temperature Control counterclockwise
until the OVEN HEATING Indicator Light
goes off.
lf you want the food to broil slower from the
start, set the Oven Temperature Control
between 170°F and 325°F (77% and 162.7%).
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
brolllng temperatures.
NOTE: The oven door must be partly open
whenever the oven is being used to broil. Leaving
the door open allows the oven to maintain proper
temperatures.

l
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.

Energy
saving
tips
Atthough the energy used for cooking is usually 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 conserve energy
when using your cooking product.
l Use pans with flat bottoms,
straight sides and
tight-fitting 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 txroking when
possible.
l Use the more efficient surface units instead of
the oven when Possible.

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 Fke Hazard
lf you leave a utensil on the right rear
surface unit, use potholders when moving
it. Pan handles can become hot enough to
burn.
Keep flammable materials away from oven
vent.
Failure to do so can result in burns or a fire.
The storage
drawer
The storage drawer is for storing pots and pans.
The drawer can be removed to make it easier to
clean under the range. Use care when handllng
the drawer.
Removlng the storage drawer:

1. Unplug appliance or disconnect at main power
supply.
2. Remove the glass bulb cover in the back of
the oven by screwing it out counterdockwise.
3. Remove the lioht bulb from its socket. Replace
the bulb with a40-watt appliance bulb.
.
4. Replace the bulb cover by screwing it in
clockwise. Plug in appliance or reconnect at
