COOKTOP SAFETY
Protective Liners
Do not use aluminum foil to line surface unit
drip bowls or oven bottoms, except as
suggested in the manual. Improper installation
of these liners may result in a risk of electric
shock, or fire.
Glazed Cooking Utensils
Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic,
ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils
are suitable for range-top service without
breaking due to the sudden change in
temperature.
Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and
Not Extend Over Adjacent Surface Units
To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of
flammable materials, and spillage due to
unintentional contact with the utensil, the
handle of a utensil should be positioned so
that it is turned inward, and does not extend
over adjacent elements.
Do Not Soak Removable Heating Elements
Heating elements should never be immersed
in water.
Do Not Cook on Broken Cook-Top
If cook-top should break, cleaning solutions
and spillovers may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of electric shock. Contact
a qualified technician immediately.
Clean Cook-Top With Caution
If a wet sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on
a hot cooking area, be careful to avoid steam
burn. Some cleaners can produce noxious
fumes if applied to a hot surface.
WARNING

PERSONAL SAFETY
WARNING
WARNING
To reduce the risk of burn injuries during
cooktop use, observe the following:
Never use the cooktop to warm or heat a room.
Children or pets should not be left alone or
unattended in an area where appliances are in
use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand
on any part of the appliance.
CAUTION
Do not store items of interest to children in cabinets
above a cooktop or on the backguard of a cooktop;
children climbing on the cooktop to reach items could
be seriously injured.
To reduce the risk of injury to persons, in the
event of a grease fire, observe the following:
Grease is flammable and should be handled
carefully.
Do not use water on grease fires.
Never pick up a flaming pan. Smother sheet or
flat tray.
Flaming grease outside of utensil can be
extinguished with baking soda or, if available, a
multipurpose dry chemical or foam type
extinguisher.
Let fat cool before attempting to handle it.
Wipe up spill-overs immediately.
If you are "flaming" liquors or other spirits under
an exhaust, turn the fan off. The draft could
cause the flames to spread out of control.
Never leave the surface area unattended at
high heat setting. Boil-over cause smoking and
greasy spill over, which may ignite.
CAUTION
Do not allow aluminum foil, plastic, paper or cloth to
come in contact with a hot surface. Do not allow pans
to boil dry.
When using the cooktop
Do not touch the cooking surface or the
surrounding areas.
Surface areas may become hot enough
to cause burns. Surface elements may be hot
even though they are dark in color. During and
after use, do not touch or let flammable
materials contact heating elements until they
have had time to cool.
When using the cooktop installed over an oven
Do not touch heating elements or interior
surfaces of oven. Heating elements may be
hot even though they are dark in color. Interior
surfaces of an oven become hot enough to
cause burns. During and after use, do not
touch, or let clothing or other flammable

Element and Control Setting
Element and control settingS
SINGLE RADIANT ELEMENT
This type of electric element uses a wire ribbon
located under the glass surface to provide the heat for
cooking. Each element cycles on and off during
operation, controlled by its own temperature limiter.
Temperature limiters
Each radiant heaters has its own sensor to protect the
glass cooking surface from extreme high
temperatures. The limiter will operate automatically by
cycling the element the cycles as defined by knob
setting (HI-LO).
TYPE OF FOOD
Melting butter, chocolate LO
Delicate sauce, rice,
simmering sauces with
butter and egg yolk
The dual element consist of two radiant ribbon
elements within the same heating area. Either the
small (inner element) or both (inner and outer)
elements may be selected for use. There are an
infinite number of heat settings between the LO and HI
position. The HI and LO settings have fixed positions
to define the minimum and maximum heat settings.
To turn ON the inner element, push down on the
control knob and turn it counter-clockwise, setting the
heat according to the graphic surrounding the knob.

COOKTOP OPERATION
BEFORE USING THE COOKTOP FOR
THE FIRST TIME
• The cooking surface retains heat and remains
hot over 20 minutes after the elements have
been turned off.
• The glass ceramic cooking surface is durable
and resistant to impact, but not unbreakable.
It can crack or break if a pan or other object is
dropped on it.
• Do not use aluminum foil directly on the glass; it
will melt and damage the glass surface.
• Do not allow pans to boil dry. This can damage
the pan, element and/or cooktop.
• Never cook food directly on the glass.
• Do not slide cookware across cooking surface, it
may scratch the glass
• Using cast iron cookware on the glass cooktop
Is not recommended. Cast iron retains heat and
may result in cooktop damage.
• All products are wiped clean with solvents at the
factory to remove any visible signs of dirt, oil, and
grease which may remain from the manufacturing
process.
• If present, remove all packing and literature from
the cooktop surface.
• Clean the glass cooking surface before using it
for the first time. A thorough cleaning with a glass
cooktop cleaner is recommended. It only takes
a minute and it puts a clean, shiny finish on the
cooking surface before use.
• There may be a slight odor during the first
several uses. This odor is normal and will
disappear over time.
• Optimal cooking performance depends on proper
cookware being selected and used.

COOKWARE
Cookware
GENERAL
COOKWARE CHARACTERISTICS
The choice of pan directly affects the cooking
performance (speed and uniformity). For best results,
select pans with the following features:
Cooking Utensil Guidelines
Aluminium: heats and cools quickly when frying,
braising, roasting. May leave metal markings on
glass.
Cast Iron: heats and cools quickly Not
recommended. Retains excessive heat and may
damage cooktop.
• Copper: heats and cools quickly. Good for
gourmet cooking, lined wine sauces, egg dishes.
• Enamel ware: performance depends on material.
Not recommended. Metal imperfections in enamel
may scratch cooktop.
•Glass Ceramic: heats and cools slowly. Not
recommended. Heats too slowly. Imperfections in
enamel may scratch cooktop.
•Stainless Steel: heats and cools at moderate
rate. Good for soups, sauces, rate vegetables,
general cooking.
Flat base
When a pan is hot, the base (pan bottom) should rest
evenly on the surface without wobbling (rocking). Ideal
cookware should have a flat bottom, straight side, a
well fitting lid and the material should be of medium to
heavy thickness.
Rough finishes may scratch the cooktop.
Match pan diameter to element size
The base of the pan should cover or match the
diameter of the element being used.
OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING WHEN
CANNING
UNBALANCED PAN
Pots that extend further than 1 inch beyond the edge
of element's outside diameter are not recommended
for most cooking applications. However, when
canning with water-bath or a pressure canner, largerdiameter pots may be used, because boiling water
temperatures (even under pressure) are not harmful
to the cooktop surfaces.
However, do not use large diameter canners or
other large-diameter pots for frying or boiling
foods other than water.
Most syrup or sauce mixtures, and all fried foods,
cook at temperatures much higher than boiling water.
Such temperatures could eventually damage the
glass cooktop surfaces.
Be sure the canner fits over:
• the center of the element. If the canner cannot
be centered on the element for some reason, use
smaller diameter pots for good canning results.
• Flat-bottomed canners must be used. Do not use
canners with flanged or rippled bottoms (often
found in enamelware) because they don't make
good contact with the cooktop surface and take a
long time to boil water.
PAN TOO SMALL
9
ENGLISH
When canning, use recipes and procedures from
reputable sources.
Reliable recipes and procedures are available
from the manufacturer of your canner,
manufacturers of glass jars for canning, and the
United States Department of Agriculture Extension
Service.
Remember that canning is a process that
generates large amounts of steam. To avoid
burns from steam or heat, be careful when
canning.
Since you must make sure to process the canning
jars for the specified time, with no interruption in
processing time, do not can on any cooktop if your
canner is not flat.
CAUTION
Safe canning requires that harmful micro organisms
are destroyed and that the jars are sealed
completely. When canning foods in a water-bath
canner, a gentle but steady boil must be maintained
for the required time. When canning foods in a
pressure canner, the pressure must be maintained
for the required time.
After you have adjusted the controls, it is very
important to make sure the boil or pressure levels
specified are maintained for the required time.
CAUTION
Plastic, paper, and cloth can melt or burn when in
contact with a hot surface. Do not let these items
come in contact with the hot glass.
CAUTION
Food packaged in aluminum foil should not be placed
directly on the glass ceramic surface for cooking;
aluminum foil can melt and cause permanent
damage.
