To Prevent Fire or Smoke Damage
About Your Appliance
Be sure all packing materials

NEVER use appliance as a space heater to heat or warm
a room to prevent potential hazard to the user and damage to the appliance. Also. do not use the cooktop as a
storage area for food or cooking utensils.

and other flam-
If appliance is installed near a window, proper precautions
should be taken to prevent curtains from blowing over burners.
Cooking
Always place a pan on a surface burner before turning it
on. Be sure you know which knob controls which surface burner. Make sure the correct burner is turned on
Do not touch surface burner areas or any areas near burners.
During and after use, these areas may be hot enough to cause
burns. Avoid contact with these areas by clothing or other flammable materials until they have had sufficient time to cool.

exposure to burner flame.
plastics are vulnerable to heat. Keep plastics away from
of the appliance that may become warm or hot. NEVER
plastic items on the cooktop as they may melt or soften
too close to a lighted surface burner.
Always adjust surface burner flame so that it does not
extend beyond the bottom edge of the pan. An excessive
flame is hazardous, wastes energy and may damage the
appliance, pan or cabinets above the appliance.
To eliminate the hazard of reaching over hot surface burners,
cabinet storage should not be provided directly above a unit,
If storage is provided, it should be limited to items which are
used infrequently and which are safely stored in an area subjected to heat from an appliance. Temperatures may be unsafe
for some items, such as volatile liquids, cleaners or aerosol
sprays.
NEVER leave a surface cooking operation unattended
especially when
using a high heat setting or when deep
fat frying. Boilovers cause smoking
and greasy spillovers
may ignite.
Clean up greasy spills as soon as possible. Do not use high heat for extended cooking operations.
In Case of Fire
Use dry, sturdy potholders.
Damp
potholders
may cause burns from
steam. Dishtowels

Use dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher or baking soda to
smother fire or flame. Never use water on a grease fire.

NEVER heat an unopened container on a surface burner.
Pressure build-up may cause container to burst resulting
in serious personal injury or damage to the appliance.
Turn off appliance and ventilating hood to avoid spreading the
flame. Extinguish flame then turn on hood to remove smoke
and odor.
If fire is in a pan on the surface burner, cover
pan with lid or cookie sheet. Never attempt
to pick up or move a flaming pan.

SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
(continued),,.,°,,,,,°,,,,,.,,°°°,,°.
Utensil Safety
Cleaning
Use pans with flat bottoms and handles that are easily grasped
and stay cool. Avoid using unstable, warped, easily tipped or
loose-handled
pans. Also avoid using pans, especially small
pans, with heavy handles as they could be unstable and easily tip. Pans that are heavy to move when filled with food
may also be hazardous.
Turn off all controls and wait for appliance parts to coo
before touching or cleaning them. Do not touch the burne
grates or surrounding
areas until they have had sufficien
time to cool.
Safety
Clean appliance with caution. Use care to avoid steam burn_
if a wet sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a ho
surface. Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if ap
plied to a hot surface.
To minimize burns, ignition of flammable materials and spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil, do not extend handles over adjacent surface burners. Always turn pan
handles toward the side or back of the appliance, not out into
the room where they are easily hit or reached by small children.
Clean only parts listed in this guide
recommended.
Important
Never let a pan boil dry as this could damage the utensil and
the appliance.
