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 ft.
-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 oooktop 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. ft 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
bottoms. These could cause severe overheating
which damages the utensil and/or surface unit.
8
Product Damage Hazard
tl a surface unit stays red for a bng time,
the bottom of the pan is not flat enough or is
too small for the surface unit. Prolonged
usage of inoorrect utensils for long periods
of time can result in damage to the surface
unit. ax&top, wiring and surrounding areas.
To prevent damage, use correct utensils,
start cooking on HI and turn control down to
continue cooking.

l
l
l
l
l
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
cooktop.
For 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 two surface units at the
same time. Excessive heat buildup will damage
the cooktop.
Start with hot water. Th’is 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
reflection.
To prolong the life of the elements:
-Prepare small batches at a time.
-Do not use elements for canning all day.
Positioning
racks
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 l/z to
2 inches (4-5 cm) between the sides of the pan
and the oven walls and other pans.
oooklng, follow these guldellnee
foods:
l Angel and bundt cakes, yeast breads, frozen
pies, large roasts and turkeys-place
rack on
lowest level.
l Casseroles,
muffins, most quick breads and
meats-place rack on second or third level from
bottom.
l Cookies,
biscuits, cakes and non-frozen piesplace rack on second or third level from bottom.
When baking on two racks, arrange racks on
bottom and third level from bottom.
For proper
for speclflc
NOTE: For recommended rack placement

The large diameter of most water-bath or
pressure canners combined with high heat
settings for bng periods ol time can shorten the
life of regular surface units and cause damage to
the cooktop.

Personal Injury Hazard
Always positiin oven rack(s) in desired
location before turning oven on. Be sure
the rack(s) is level.
l tf rack(s) must be moved while oven is
hot, use potholders or oven mitts to
protect hands.
Failure to follow the above precautions
may result in personal injury.
l
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 X-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 comers of the oven rack
Three or four pans
Place in opposite comers on each oven rack.
Stagger pans so no pan is directly over another.
NOTE: “Oven peeking’ may cause heat bss,
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 for
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 holding the food.
l Do not cover the entire rack with aluminum
foil.
tt will reduce air circulation and cause poor
cooking results.
l Do not line oven bottom with foil or other liners.
Poor baking will resuft.

Adjusting
the oven temperature
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.
ff, 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:
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 posltlon of the notches.
3. To lower the temperature, hold knob handle
firmly and move the tooth a notch counterclockwise. Each notch equals about 5OF
(2.5%).
4. To raise the temperature, hold knob handle
firmly and move the tooth a notch clockwise.
Each notch equals about 5°F (2.5%).
Tighten the locking screws and replace the
control knob.
Broiling
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.
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 [ 10.2 cm]). The door will stay
open by itself.
4. Set the Oven Selector and Oven Temperature
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 Oven
Selector and Oven Temperature Control Knob
to OFF. The OVEN HEATING Indicator Light
will go off.
control
Custom
broil
ff food is cooking too fast, turn the Oven
Temperature Control Knob counterclockwise
until the OVEN HEATING Indicator Lght
goes off.
lf you want the food to broil sbwer from the
start, set the Oven Temperature Control Knob
between 170°F and 325OF (77% and 162.7%).
These temperature settings allow the broil
heating element to cycle and to slow cooking.
The bwer the temperature, the slower the
cooking.
Fish and chicken are some foods that may cook
better lf you use lower broiling temperatures.
l
l
l
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.
Broiling
l
l
l
14
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.
Flre Hazard
l
l
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. fl foil
is used, cut slits in foil to correspond 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 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 wfth 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 cooking when
possible.
l Use the more efficient surface units instead of
the oven when possible.
Turn on the surface unit only after placing filled
pan on the unit.
. ‘Oven peeking’ may cause heat bss, longer
cooking times and unsatisfactory baking
results. Rely on your timer.
l Bake cakes, pies or cookies when oven is
warm. Best time is after a meal has been
caked in it.
l Preheat
the oven no bnger than necessary.
l Plan your meals for the most effiient
use of the
range. When using the oven to cook one food,
try to cook the rest of the meal in lt also.
l Do not preheat
when broiling, roasting or
cooking items such as casseroles.
l Keep reflector howls clean for best heat
ref lectbn.
l
15
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 Fire l-&zard
tf 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 resutt 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

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.
lf a reflector bowl gets discolored, some of the
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.

Make sure oven and light bulb are cool
and power to the range has been turned
OFF before replacing the light bulb.
Failure to do so could result in electrfcal
shock or bums.
The bulb cover must be in place when
using the oven. The cover protects the
bulb from breaking, and from high oven
temperatures. Because bulb cover is
made of glass, be careful not to drop it.
Broken glass could cause injury.
To replace
the oven

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 counterdodcwise.
3. Remove the light bulb from its socket. Replace
the bulb with a 40-watt appliance bulb.
4. Replace the bulb cover by screwing it in
clockwise. Plug in appliance or reconnect at
the main power supply.
