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
evenly heat spreads over the pan bottom.
Choose pans that provide the best cooking
results.
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 for
long periods of time could 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
Home
canning
information
To protect your range:
l Use flat-bottomed
canners/pans
for best
results.
l Use the largest
surface unit for best
results. 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.
l Do not place canner
on two surface units
at the same time. Too much heat will build
up and will damage the cooktop.
l 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.
l Keep reflector
bowls clean for best heat
reflection.
l To prolong the life of the elements:
- Prepare small batches at a time.
- Do not use elements for canning all day.
Optional canning kit
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 co&top.
Positioning
racks
and pans
For baking/roasting
with one rack, place
the rack so the top of the food will be
centered in the oven.
Rack placement for specific foods:
FOOD
If you plan to use the cooktop for canning,
we recommend the installation of a Canning
Kit. Order the kit (Part No. 242995) from
your Roper dealer or authorized Roper
service company.
NOTE: For recommended rack placement
when broiling, see “Broiling rack position
chart” on page 15.

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.
For best air circulation
The 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 V’Zto 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.
9
Using
aluminum
foil for baking
Use aluminum foil to catch spilbvers 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 (2.5 cm)
larger all around than the dish Ming
the
food.
l Do not cover
the entire rack with aluminum foil. It will reduce air circulation and
cause poor cooking resutts.
l Do not line oven bottom 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
resutl in electrical shock or fire hazard
and damage to the elements.

you are not satisfied with the temperature
settings, you can adjust them by following
these steps:
1. Turn the Oven Temperature Control
Knob to the off position. Pull knob
straight off and flip it over.
2. Loosen the locking screws inside the
control knob. Note the positlon of the
notches.

Broiling
1. Posltiin
the rack property 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 15.
2. Put the broiler pan and food on the rack.
3. Close the door to the Broil Stop position
(open ahout 4 inches [lo.2 cm]). The
door will stay open by itself.
4. Set the Oven Selector and Oven Tern
perature Control Knob 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

If food is cooking too fast, turn the Oven
Tevrature
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 chkken 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.

l
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.
Refer to a broiling chart in a reliable
cookbcok 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 you leave
it in the heated oven.
Fire Hazard
l
l
Place meat the correct distance from the
element. Meat placed too close to the
element could spatter, smoke, bum 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 recomm ended. 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.

Energy
saving
tips
Although 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 save 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 onty 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.
Using
the MEALTIMER”
The MEALTIMER clock is designed to turn
the oven on and off at times you set .. . even
when you are not around.
Delayed time baking/roasting is ideal for
foods which do not require a preheated
oven, such as meats and casseroles. Do not
use delayed time cooking for cakes,
cookies, etc. .. . undercooking will result.
Before using the MEALTIMER clock,
make sure the clock Is set to the correct
time of day. (See “Setting the electronic
clock” on page 10.)
To delay
start
and stop
automatically:
1. Position the oven rack(s) property and
place the food in the oven.

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 the oven.
Preheat the oven no longer than necesWV.
Plan your meats for the most efficient 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.

18
The oven vent
Hot air and moisture escape from the oven
through a vent under the tight 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.

Your range is designed for ease of care. You
can do most cleaning with items found
around your home. Cleaning your range
whenever spills or soiling occurs will help to
keep it looking and operating like new.

bowls
Removing
1. Make sure all surface units are off and
cool before removing surface units and
reflector bowls.
2. Lift the edge of the unit, opposite the
receptacle, just enough to clear the
element hold-down clip and the reflector
bowl.
3. Pull the surface unit straight away from the
receptacle.
4. Lift out the reflector bowl. See “Cleaning
chart” on page 24 for cleaning instructions.
21
Replacing
1. Make sure all surface units are off and
cool before replacing surface units and
reflector bowls.
2. Llns up openings in the reflector bowl
with the surface unit receptacle and the
element holcldown clip.
3. Hold the surface unit as level as possible
with the terminal just started into the
receptacle. Push the surface unit terminal
into the receptacle.
4. When terminal is pushed into the
receptacle as far as it will go, push
down the edge of the surface unit
opposite the receptacle. The element
hold-down clip will keep the surface unit
from moving around.
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.
22
Lift-up
cooktop
1. Lift front of cooktop at both front corners
until the support rods lock into place.
Personal Injury Hazard
Be sure both support rods are fully
extended and in the locked position.
Failure to do so couM result in personal injury from the cooktop accidentally falling.
Product Damage Hazard
Do not drop the cooktop. Damage
could result to the porcelain and the
cook-top frame.
2. Wipe with warm, soapy water. Use a
soapy steel-wool pad on heavily soiled
areas.
3. To lower the cooktop, lift cooktop from
both sides while pressing the support
rods back to unlock them. Lower the
cooktop into place.
Removing
the oven door
Removing the oven door will help make it
easier to clean the oven.
Burn and Electrical Shock Hazard
Make sure all controls are OFF and the
oven is cool before removing oven door.
Failure to do so could result in burns or
electrical shock.
1. Open the door to the first stop position.
2. Hold the door at both sides and lift it at the
same angle it is in.
3. To replace, fit the bottom corners of the
door over the ends of the hinges. Push the
door down evenly. The door will close only
when it is on the hinges correctly.
