The burners used are of the sealed type, meaning
that the bottom of the burners, where they meet the
cook-top surface, are provided with gaskets (seals)
to prevent any spilled liquid from entering the
body of the cook-top. In this way any spilled
liquids are kept out of the cook-top and on the
surface for easy cleaning.

The cook-top has sealed gas burners designed to
spread the heat evenly across the bottom of your
cooking utensils. Each burner is equipped with a
spark igniter to light the burner and each burner
incorporates auto-reignition in case a flame is
blown out. The burners on the Bosch cook-tops
have been set at the factory for use in Natural Gas.

Cookware Tins
.,It-
Good utensils and the use of proper procedures are
essential for good cooking. Cooking performance
is greatly effeeted by the type of pots and pans
used. For best results we recommend the
following:
• Use pots and pans of heavy gauge metal with
fiat, thick, smooth bottoms. Glass or ceramic
cookware should only be used as
recommended
by the cookware manufacturer.
• For best results and greater efficiency use only
fiat-bottomed cookware. Pots and pans with
rounded, either concave or convex, warped, or
dented bottoms should be avoided. Rounded
and uneven utensils are unstable when placed
on the grates and may scorch or burn food due
to uneven heating. The bottom of the utensil
should touch all grate support fingers evenly.
Utensils, whether full or empty, should never
reek on the grates.
• Choose pots and pans with handles made of
sturdy, heat resistant material that are secure!y
attached. Never use a pot or pan with a loose
handle.
•
•
•
•
•
•
When possible be sure to cover the pots or pans
with a suitable lid. Proper fitting lids will help
shorten the cooking time and allow food to
cook in a minimum amount of liquid.
Turn handles of pots and/or pans inward, but
not over other burners. This will help reduce
the chance of burns and spills due to bumping
the handle.
Try to match the pot or pan size to the cooking
process.
Select a pot or pan such that the flame height
required for the cooking process being used
does not extend beyond the edge of the pot or
pan. Flames that extend beyond the edge of a
pot or pan waste energy and can cause fires.
Make sure that the bottom of the utensil being
used is clean and dry.
When choosing or using specialty cookware,
such as pressure cookers, deep fat fryers, woks
or canning modules, be sure they meet all the
safety notices contained in this manual.
SPECIAL NOTES REGARDING
COOKWARE:
1. Do not use undersized pots or pans with large
handles that may overbalance the pot or pan as
these can easily tip causing spills.
2. Do not use utensils with rough bottoms as
these can cause permanent damage to the
porcelain coating on the grates.
3. Do not leave any empty pot or pan unattended.
Boil overs can cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that may ignite. Also pot or pans
can overheat causing smoking and may ignite
grease left in the pot or pan and damage the
pot or pan, grate and/or surface of the cooktop.
SPECIAL
NOTES
REGARDING
CANNING:
The high temperatures encountered for long
periods of time when using water bath or pressure
canners can damage the cook-top if they are used
improperly. To protect the cook-top we
recommend the following:
1. Center the canner/pan over the burner being
used. Large diamter canners/pans can trap heat
and cause damage to the cook-top if not
properly centered.
2. Do not attempt to use two burners at the same
time with the canner/pan. The cook-top will
become too hot and could become damaged.
3. Start the process with hot water. This will
reduce the amount of time that the burner is on
high. Then reduce the setting once water is
boiling, to the lowest position that will keep
the water boiling.
Cook-Top
Operation
Before beginning to operate your Bosch gas, builtin cook-top make sure:
•
The cook-top has been installed by a qualified
technician who has tested for leaks and has
tested the operation of the cook-top.

could be burned or a fire could start ifa
burner is accidently left on.
If the flame should go out while cooking
or if there is a strong gas odor, turn the
burners OFF. Wait five (5) minutes for
the gas odor to dissipate before relighting
the burner. If gas odor is still present, see
safety note on manual cover. Failure to
follow these precautions could result in
explosion or fire.
Do not leave cook-top unattended when
cooking during a power failure. The
auto-reignition feature of your cook-top
will not operate during a power failure.
Unignited gas could result in a fire or
explosion.
If the burner has been properly lit, the flames
should be blue in color, carry completely around
the burner cap and should not flutter. You can then
adjust the flame to desired height. For lower flame,
continue turning counter-clockwise to desired
flame height. The flame height adjustment range is
designated in figure 3 by heading "Range of
Operation".
If the gas does not ignite after four (4) seconds,
turn the valve to the "Off' position. Wait 5
minutes for any gas to dissipate and then repeat the
lighting procedure.

Burner Flame Adjustment and Suggested
Settings
Below you will find a table of recommended
settings for various purposes. This Table 1 is
merely a guide. When reviewing the table please
also consider:
•
•
•
The settings should be increased for larger
quantities.
The settings should be reduced for smaller
quantities.
Reduce the flame if it is extending beyond the
edge of the pot or pan. A flame that extends
beyond the edge wastes energy, may heat the
handle and has the potential of causing a fire.
When using pots or pans that are made from
poor conductors of heat, such as glass, ceramic
or cast iron, use low or medium flame heights
that only cover approximately 1/3 of the utensil
bottom. This WIU reduce the likelihood of
scorching.

Energy Saving Tips
Although the energy used for cooking is only a
very small percentage of the total energy used in a
typical home, there are nevertheless a number of
things that can be done to ensure efficient use of
your cook-top:
• Use pots and pans with thick, smooth metal
bottoms.
• Always use a lid.
• Minimize the amount of liquid or fat to reduce
cooking times.
• Use the lowest possible flame height to
complete the cooking process.
• Adjust the flame height to fit the size of the pot
or pan.
• After a boil has been attained, reduce the flame
height to maintain a simmer rather than a rolling
boil.

Sealed
Knobs
and Spill Protector
Grommets
The control knobs and spill protector grommets
should be washed regularly in warm soapy water.
Hand dishwashing liquid is excellent for this task.
The knobs should be removed by gently pulling
them straight up and offthe valve shafts. The spill
protector grommets should be cleaned in place.
Use caution to avoid introduction of moisture into
the control panel below the spill protectors.
Moisture in the control area can cause the igniter
switches to fail. To replace the knobs, align the
"D" shaped opening at the bottom of the knob with
the "D" shaped valve shaft, then carefully press the
knob onto the valve shaft.
Burners
The burner caps of the sealed burners should, on a
regular basis, be removed and cleaned. The burner
caps should always be cleaned immediately after a
spill or boil over. -- BE SURE to let the burners
cool before touching.-Keeping the burner caps
clean prevents improper ignition and uneven
flames. Clean the burner cap with warm soapy
water and a sponge or non-abrasive scrubbing pad.
Do not clean the burner cap in a dishwasher. If the
gas tube opening or the orifice, located within the
gas tube opening, have become soiled or clogged,
use a cotton swab or soft cloth to clean.

following:
Figure 5. Removing
1. Turn the knobs to the "OFF" position prior to
removing them from the valve shafts.
2. Never operate the cook-top without the knobs
and spill protector grommets in place.
3. Do not soak the knobs and spill protector rings
in water or place them in the dishwasher.
4. Do not expose the knobs or spill protector
grommets to direct flame, hot utensils or other
sources of heat.
If any ports in the burner cap are still clogged after
cleaning, use a straightened paper clip, wire or
needle to dislodge the clog. Do not use a toothpick
to remove clogs, as it could break off and become
lodged in a port.
Burner Cap for Cleaning
The igniters should be thoroughly cleaned and then
dried. This will prevent constant sparking of the
auto-reignition system.
5. Do not use abrasive cleaners or pads such as
steel wool to clean the control knobs or spill
protector grommets.
6. If spill protector grommets are ever removed, be
sure that they are reinstalled in the same
opening from which they were removed.
7. Do not block or restrict the opening between the
knob and spill protector ring as this serves as
the air inlet for the sealed burners.
After cleaning and drying replace the burner cap,
making sure that the burner cap is properly aligned
and fully seated in the burner base. Be sure to
check the burner after cleaning for proper lighting.
