Using the Black-Glass Cooktop
Cooking on a black-glass cooktop is almost the same as cooking on any
cooktop. There are three differences you should know about to get the best
cooking results.
1. The cookware you use.
2. What to expect.
3. The care and cleaning.
Cookwae
Use only flat-bottomed utensils on the cooktop. Pans without flat bottoms and
specialty items with rounded or ridged bottoms (woks or tea kettles) will cause
uneven heating and poor cooking results.
To check your cookware for flatness, place a straight-edge across the bottom
of each piece. Move the straight edge around. If light shows anywhere between
the pan and the straight edge, the pan is not flat. Do not use it.
CAUTION: The use oi utensils without flat bottoms could cause damage
to the cooktop.
Utensil bottoms must be clean and
free from nicks and scratches. Heating
a soiled pan can leave a stain on the
cooktop and cause scratches.
CAUTION: Using a pan wlth
a nloked or scratched bottom
could damage the cooldop.
6
DO NOT slide pans across the cooktop. Sliding pans on the cooktop
surface could leave marks. Aluminum
marks can be removed If they are
not heated. Other marks may be
permanent. See page 9 for cleaning
and caring suggestions.
Coo king
The glass cooktop will take longer to
heat up than a regular surface unit. It
will also take longer to cool down. Turn
off the control a few minutes before
you are finished cooking. The cooking
surface will stay hot enough to continue cooking for a while.
Wiping off the cooktop before and
after each use will help keep the surface free from stains and provide
the most even heating.
Care and Cleaning
Always clean the glass cooktop
Avoiding
l
l
l
before
stains
Wipe the cooktop surface with a
clean, damp paper towel before
each use. (Do not use a sponge or
cloth. A little leftover soap or
soil can stain the cooktop when
heated.)
Wipe up any spills with a wet
paper towel, when the cooktop is
cool enough not to steam. The
longer you cook with a spillover
on the cooktop, the harder it will
be to remove.
Clean off metal marks (from copper
or aluminum] right away If
heated they may never come off.
See page 9 for special
cleaning suggestions.

l Sugary spills can cause plfflng on the surface.
l Spilling cold water on a hot surface may crack it. Do not use a cracked

If you need service or assistance,
we suggest you follow these four steps:
1. Before calling for assistance...
Performance problems often result
from little things you can fix yourself
without tools of any kind.
If nothing operates:
l Is the cooktop
wired correctly to a
live circuit with the proper voltage?
(See Installation Instructions.)
l Have you checked
the main fuse or
circuit breaker box?
If sutiace units will not operate:
l Have you checked
the main fuse or
circuit breaker box?
l Do the control
knobs turn?
If surface unit control knob(s) will not
turn:
l Did you push in before trying to turn?
If cooking results aren’t what you
expected:
l Is the cooktop
level?
l Are the pans the size called
for in the
recipe?
l Are you following
a tested recipe
from a reliable source?
l Do the cooking
utensils have smooth,
flat bottoms?
l Are you allowing
time for a longer
warm-up and cooldown?
See the Cooklng Gulde for more
information on cooking problems
and how to solve them.
