‘Use only dry otholders. Moist or
damp pothol 8 ers on hot surfaces
may result in bums from steam.
Do not let potholder touch hot
heating elements. Do not use a
towel or bulky cloth for a
potholder. It could catch on fire.
Keep range vents unobstructed.
‘Do not heat unopened containers. They could explode. The hot
contents could cause burns and
container particles could cause
Injury.
Do not store flammable materials
on or near the ran e. The fumes
can create an exp ?osion and/or
fire hazard.
l Check to be sure glass cooking
utensils are safe for use on the
range. Only certain types of
glass, glass-ceramic, ceramic,
earthenware or other glazed
utensils are suitable for
cooktops without breaking due
to the sudden change in
temperature.
ONever leave surface units
unattended at high heat settings. A boilover could result
and cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that may ignite.
Mhen usina the cooktou
Make sure the reflector bowls
are in place during cooking.
Cookin without reflector bowls
may su %ject the wirin and components underneath ta em to
damage.
Do not line reflector bowls with
aluminum foil or other liners.
Improper installation of these
liners ma result in a risk of
electric s tYock or fire.
Select a pan with a flat bottom
that is about the same size as
the surface unit. If pan is smaller
than the surface unit, some of
the heating element will be
exposed and may result in the
i niting of clothing or potholders.
8 orrect pan size also improves
cooking efficiency.

USE
I
To start foods cooking.
To bring liquids to a boil.
To hold a rapid boil.
To fry chicken or pancakes.
For gravy, pudding and icing.
To cook large amounts of
vegetables.
To - keep food cooking after
starting it on a higher setting.
To keep food warm until ready
to serve.
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 utensils that
make good contact with the surface units.
Utensils with rounded, warped, ridged (porcelain enamel-ware) or dented bottoms could
cause severe overheating, which damages the
utensil and/or surface unit.
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 tightfitting lid.
Choose medium to heavy gauge (thickness)
pans that are fairly light-weight.
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.
Handles should be made of sturdy, heatresistant material and be securely attached to
the pan.
l
l
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 can 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 can overheat and may damage the
utensil or surface unit.
Home
canning
information
To protect your range:
. 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.
Positioning
racks
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 cooktop.
If you plan to use the cooktop for canning, we
recommend the installation of a Canning Kit.
Order the kii (Part No. 242905) from your Roper
dealer or authorized Roper service company.
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:
l
l
Personal Injury Hazard
Always position oven rack(s) in desired
location before turning oven on. Be sure
if rack(s) must be moved while oven is
hot. use potholders or oven mitts to
When baking on two racks, arrange racks on
bottom and third level from bottom.
NOTE: For recommended rack placement when
broiling, see “Broiling rack position chart” on
page 14.
9
For best air circulation
The hot air must circulate around the pans in the
oven for even heat to reach ail parts of the oven.
This results in better bakfng.
l Place the pans so that one is not directly over
the other.
l For best results,
allow 1’55to 2 inches (4-5 cm)
of space around each pan and between pans
and oven wails. 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.
Using
aluminum
foil for baking
Use aluminum foil to catch spillovers 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 holding the food.
l Do not cover
the en&e rack with aluminum foil.
it 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 Fire Hazard
Do not allow foil to touch the heating
elements because it will damage them and
could result in shock or fire hazard.

. 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.
l Refer to a broiling chart in a reliable cookbook
for correct broiling times.
l 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.
Energy

l
Fire Hazard
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. 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.
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 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 unks instead of
the oven when possible.

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 is after a meal has been
cooked in it.
Preheat the oven no longer than necessary.
Plan your meals 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.

2. Line up openings in the reflector bowl with the
surface unit receptacle and the element holddown clip.
20
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 unil 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.
