eliminatingthe needfor standingpilot lightswith
constantlyburningflames.
In case of a power failure, you can lightthe surface

matchto the burner,then turn the knob to the LITE
position.Useextreme cautionwhen E@tingburners
this way.
Surfaceburnersin use whenan electricalpower

is first turned on. A blowing or hissingsound
may be heard for 30 to 60 s~conds.~~s normal
soundis due to improvedinjectionof gas and air

it, or adjustthe flame to matchpan size as soonas
it lights,and the blowingor hissingsoundwill be
muchless noticeable.

~Checkto be sure the burneryou turnedon is the one
you want to use.
~Do not operatea burnerfor an extendedperiod

How
a
toselect Flqme size
Watchthe flame,not theknob,as youreduceheat.
The flamesize on a gas burnershouldmatchthe
cookwareyou are using.
FOR SAFEHANDLINGOF
COOKWARENEVERLET
THE FLAMEEXTEND
UP THE SIDESOF THE
COOKWARE.Any flamelargerthanthe bottom
of the cookwareis wastedand only servesto heat
the handle.
Top”of”Range
Whenboiling, adjustthe flame so the circleit makes
is about 1/2inch smallerthan the bottomof the
cookware-no matterwhat the cookwareis madeof.
Foodscookjust as quicklyat a gentleboil as they do
at a furious,rollingboil. A high boilcreatessteam
and cooksaway moisture,flavorand nutrition.Avoid
it exceptfor the few cookingprocessesthatneed a
vigorousboil.
When frying or warming foo~ in stiidess steel,
east iron or enamelware, keep the flame down
lower—to about 1/2 the diameter of the pan.
When frying in glass or ceramic cookware, lower
the flame even more.
cookware
Aluminum: Medium-weightcookwareis
recommendedbecauseit heatsquicklyand evenly.
Mostfoodsbrownevenlyin an aluminumskillet.Use
saucepanswith tight-fittinglids whencookingwith
minimumamountsof water.
Cast-Iron: If heatedslowly,most skilletswillgive
satisfactoryresults.
Enamelware: Undersomeconditions,the enamelof
somecookwaremay melt.Followcookware
manufacturer’srecommendations
for cookingmethods.
Glass: Thereare two typesof glasscookware-those
for ovenuse only and thosefor top-of-rangecooking
(saucepans,coffeeand teapots).Glassconductsheat
very slowly.
Heatproof Glass Ceramic: Can be used for either
surfaceor oven cooking.It conductsheat very
slowlyand coolsvery slowly.Checkcookware
manufacturer’sdirectionsto be sureit can be used
on gas ranges.
Stainless Steel: This metal alonehas poor heating
propertiesand is ~~sually
combinedwith copper,
aluminumor other metalsfor improvedheat
distribution.Combinationmetalskilletsusu~ly work
satisfactorilyif they are used with mediumheat as the
manufacturerrecommends.

A. It is unnecessaryto preheatyouroven.
Q. When buying a roast, are there any special tips
that would help me cook it more evedy?
A. Yes.Buy a roast as evenin thicknessas possible,
or buy rolledroasts.
Q. Can I seal the sides of my foil ‘tent” when

Tips
1. Alwaysuse broilerpan and rack thatcomeswith
youroven.It is designedto minimizesmokingand
spatteringby trappingjuices in the shieldedlower
part of the pan.
2. For steaksand chops,slashfat evenlyaround
outsideedgesof meat.To slash,cut crosswise
throughouterfat surfacejust to the edge of the
meat.Use tongsto turn meatover to prevent
piercingmeat and losingjuices.
& Answers
Q. When broiling, is it necessary to aiways use a
rack in the pan?
A. Yes.Usingthe rack suspendsthe meat over the
pan. As the meatcooks,thejuices fall into the pan,
thuskeepingmeat drier.Juicesare protectedby the
rack and stay cooler,thusp~eventingexcessive
spatterand smoking.
Q. Why are my meats not turning out as brown as

onceduringbroiling.
Q. Should I salt the meat before broiting?
A. No. Salt drawsout thejuices and allowsthem to
evaporate.Alwayssalt after tooting. firn meat

Interior
(on all models except Continuous-Cleaning Models)
With proper care, the porcelain enamel interior will
retain its attractive finish for many years.
Soap and water will normally do the job. Heavy
spattering or spillovers may require cleaning with a
mild abrasive cleanser. Soapy, wet pads may also be
used. Do not allow food spills with a high sugar or
acid content (such as milk, tomatoes, sauertiaut, fruit
juices or pie filling) to remain on the surface. They
may cause dull spots even after cleaning.
Household ammonia may make the cleaning job
easier. Place 1/2 cup ammonia in a shallow glass pan
and leave in a cold oven overnight. The ammonia
fumes will help loosen the burned-on grease and food.
Whennecessary,you may use a commercialoven
cleaner.FO11OW

The Continuous-CleaningOven cleans itself while
tooting. The oven wallsare finishedwitha special
coatingthatcannotbe cleanedin the usualmannerwith
soap,detergents,steelwoolpads, commercialoven
cleaners,coarseabrasivepadsor coarsebrushes.Use of
suchcleansersand/ortheuse of ovensprayswill cause
permanentdarnage.
The special coating is a porous ceramic material,
whichis dark in colorandfeels slightlyroughto the
touch.If magnified,the surfacewouldappearas peaks,
valleysand sub-stiace “tunnels.”Thisroughfinish
tendsto preventgreasespattersfrom forminglittle
beadsor dropletsthatrun downthe sidewallsof a
‘hard-surfaceovenliner,leavingunsightlystreaksthat
requirehand cleaning.Instead,when spatterhits the
porousfinish,it is dispersedand partiallyabsorbed.
This spreadingactionincreasesthe exposureof oven
soilto heatedair andmakesit somewhatlessnoticeable.
Sotimay not disappearcompletelyand at sometime
afterextendedusage,stainsmay appearthat cannot
be removed.
The special coating works best on small arnounk of
spatter. It doesnot workwell with largerspills,
especiallysugars,egg or dairymixtures.
This special coating is not used OXI
oven shelves,
oven bottom or door liner. Removetheseto clean
with a commercialovencleanerto preventdamaging
the Continuous-CleaningOven coating.
To C1eanthe Continuous-CleaningOven:
1. Let rangeparts coolbeforehandling.Werecommend
rubberglovesbe wornwhencleaning.
2. Removeshelvesand cookware.
3. Soilvisibilitymaybe reducedby operatingthe oven
at 400”F.Closethe doorand turn OVENCONTROL
knobto 400”F.Timefor at leastfourhours.Repeated
cyclesmay be necessarybeforeimprovementin
appearanceis apparent.
Remember: During the operation of the oven, the
door and other range surfaces willget hot enough to
cause burns. Do not touch. Let the range coolbefore
replacing oven shelves.
~. If a spilloveror heavysoilingoccurson the porous
surface,as soonas the ovenhas cooled,removeas
much of the soil as possibleusing a smallamountof
water and a stiff-bristlenylonbrush.Use water
sparinglyand changeit frequently,keepingit as
cleanas possible,and be sureto blotit up withpaper
towels,clothsor sponges.Do not rub or scrubwith
papertowels,clothsor sponges,sincethey will leave
unsightlylint on the ovenfinish.If waterleaves a
whitering on the finishas it dries,applywateragain
and blot it with a cleansponge,startingat the edge
of the ring and workingtowardthe center.
The oven bottom and the inside of the oven door
have a porcelain enamel finish. The oven doorlifts
off and the ovenbottomcomesout for cleaningaway
fromthe Continuous-CleaningOven.
Do not use soap, detergent, steel woolpads,
commercial oven cleaner, siliconeoven sprays,
coarse pads or coarse brushes on the porous
surface. Theseproductswill spot, clogand darnage
the porous surfaceand reduceits abilityto work.
Donot scrape the porous surfacewitha Imifeor

Thisrange has been design-certied by the
AmericanGasAssociationaccordingto ANSI221.1,
latest edition and Canadian Gas Association
according to CANICGA-1.Ilatest edition. As with
any applianceusing gas and generating heat,
there are certain safety precautions you should
follow.Youwillfind these precautions in the
Important Safety Instructions in the front of this
book. Read them carefully.
~ Have your range installed by a qua~ed
installer or service technician.
~ Your range must be electricallygrounded in
accordance with local CO*<Sor, in the absence of
local codes, in accordance with the National
Electrical Code (ANS1/NFPA70, latest edition).
In Canada, electrical grounding must be in
accordancewith tie current CSAC22.1Canadian
Electrical Code Part 1 and/or local codes. See
Electrical Connections in this section.
~ Before installing your range on linoleum or
any other synthetic floor covering, make sure
the floor covering can withstand 180°R without
shrinking, warpiiig or discoloring. Do not install
the range over carpeting unless a sheet of 1/4”
thick plywood or similar insulator is placed
between the range and carpeting.
s Make sure the wall coverings around the
range can withstid heat generated by the
range up to 200°R
~ Avoidplacing cabinets above the range. To
reduce the hazard caused by reaching over the
open flames of operating burners, install a
ventilation hood over the range that projects
forward at least Wbeyondthe tiont ofthe cabinets.
~ The ventilating hood must be constructed of

Do not locate the range where it may be subject
to strong drafts. Any openings in the floor or wall
behind the range should be sealed. Make sure
the openings around the base of the range that
supply tiesh air for combustion and ventilation
are not obstructed by carpeting or woodwork.
PRoTEcrYOURFLOOR
Yourrange, like many other household items, is
heavy and can setde into soft floorcoveringssuch
as cushioned vinyl or carpeting. Use care when
moving the range on this me of flooririg.It is
recommended that the followingsimple and
inexpensive instructions be followedto protect
your floor.The range shouldbe instied on a sheet
ofplywood(or similar material). men thefloor
coveringenh at thefio~~tof the ra~ge,the area
that the range will rest on should be built up with
plywood to the same level or higher than the
floor covering. This willallowthe range to be
moved for cleaning or servicing.
Depending on your range, you’llfind the model
and serial numbers on a label on the front frame
of the range, behind the storage drawer, kick

ExtensionCord Cautions
Because of potential safety hazards associated
with certain conditions, we strongly recommend
against the use of an extension cord. However,
ifyou sti~ elect to use an extension cord, it is
absolutely necessary that it be a UL-listed,
3-wiregrounding-type appliance extension cord
and that the current carrying rating of the cord
in amperes be equivalent to, or greater than,
the branch circuit rating.
