IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Purchase a kitchen fire extinguisher for your home and store it in close proximity to your appliance. Should an uncontrolled fire
occur, never use water on grease fires. Never pick up a flaming pan. The oven door interior and exterior, especially the glass can
get hot during operation. Do not touch the glass – use the door handle to open or close the range door.
The push-to-turn gas valve knobs on the appliance are designed to be child-safe, however, they are not a guarantee
of operation. Children must not be left alone or unattended in the kitchen while the appliance is in use. Never leave the appliance unattended during use. Boil-overs may occur, causing spills which may ignite.
Never wear loose fitting or long sleeved apparel while cooking. Never wear garments made of flammable materials.
Clothing may ignite or catch utensil handles. DO NOT drape towels or other items on door handles. These items could ignite
and cause burns.
If your product is a range or oven ALWAYS place oven racks in the desired position before you start cooking and while the oven is
cool. Always use dry and sturdy pot-holders to carefully slide the oven rack out to add or remove food.
If your product is a range or cooktop located near a window, be certain window curtains or other flammable objects do not blow
over or near the range burners; the items could catch on fire.
If operating the surface burners, the flame must be adjusted to just cover the bottom of the pan or pot.
Excessive high flame settings may cause scorching of the nearby counter-top surface, as well as the outside of the utensil and handles.
ALWAYS turn the appliance off at the end of cooking.
When dehydrating food items, periodically check during the process to ensure that they do not catch on fire.
If you are “flaming” liquor or other spirits under an exhaust, TURN THE FAN OFF. The draft from the fan could cause the flames to spread out of control.
Care must be exercised if your appliance is equipped with a high-shelf. During heavy or continuous use, this shelf may be
come hot. Do not place combustible materials or plastic items on the shelf.
Turn the knobs to the OFF position prior to removing them from the valve stems for cleaning.
NEVER use this appliance as a space heater to heat or warm the room. Doing so may result in carbon monoxide poisoning and
overheating of the appliance. Do not use the range top or oven as a food or kitchen item storage area.
Never block or cover any slots, holes or passages located anywhere inside or outside the range. These structures are
important to safe operation of the appliance and doing so may block airflow through the oven or cooktop possibly causing carbon
monoxide poisoning or fire. Routinely keep all slots free of grease and other materials.
This appliance has been tested for safe performance using conventional cookware. DO NOT USE any device or accessory not
specifically recommended in this guide. DO NOT USE pan or pan covers on surface units, grills or griddles. These devices can
create serious safety hazards including personal injury, create performance problems and may damage the appliance.

OPERATING YOUR RANGE
COOKWARE RECOMMENDATIONS
TO AVOID THE RISK OF SERIOUS INJURY, DAMAGE TO THE RANGE OR COOKWARE, PLEASE OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES:
Bakeware, such as large casserole pans, cookie sheets, etc., must never be used on the cooktop.
Placement of large stock pots must be staggered when used on the cooktop.
Select the base diameter of the pot to match the diameter of the flame. The diameter of the flame and the diameter of the pan bottom
must match, or be slightly smaller. Too large or too small pots on a burner will compromise cooking performance.
Do not place food packaged or wrapped in aluminum foil directly on the burner grate above the burner. Aluminum foil can melt during
cooking.
Be careful to not let plastic, paper or cloth come in contact with a hot burner grate. These materials can catch fire or melt.
Never let a pan boil dry – and if it occurs remember it can be extremely hot – and very dangerous. If this does occur, turn off the burner
immediately. Wait a while, until the pot cools down enough to handle; this could be several minutes, but could save you from burns or
other serious injury.
The pan bottom should be flat, the heavier the better – and well balanced on the cooktop grate – sitting flat without rocking –
preferably with tight fitting lids. Try not to slide the pot across the grates – while it is very handy to do so – you may end up scratching
the pot or the grate.
Always be careful when using high flames, as in wok cooking, as they may contact flammable materials or make the handles of the wok
very hot. Use the wok ring (optional) to stabilize the wok.

OVENS 101
The oven is a gas fired, temperature controlled cooking cavity which is highly insulated to keep the kitchen cool and the food hot. The
oven contains two burners - the Bake burner positioned below the oven floor and the Broil burner located in the ceiling of the oven.
Bake and Broil are very different cooking operations and the burners are designed to deliver energy in a way appropriate to the task.
There are two types of baking - called Standard Bake (or conventional) and Convection Bake. Standard or conventional baking make best
use of Grandma’s cookie, cake or pie recipes – like Bake at 350ºF for forty-five minutes – to get the job done. These recipes are tried
and true – conventional or standard bake will deliver wonderful performance every time you cook.
When you Convection bake (using a fan to circulate the high temperature air inside the oven) you can lower the thermostat about 25º and
reduce the cook time by about 25% - and achieve fine cooking results just like Grandma’s – taking less time and using less energy. Use the
same recommended temperatures for meats and poultry dishes – but keep watch of the time. Convection cooking technology was first
developed in Europe and has been used for many years – recently taking hold in US residential kitchens and cookbooks.
In convection cooking, not only is the cook time faster, but also, the oven temperature is more even, top to bottom and side to side – so
cookies on several racks will have the same brown color and texture. However, to best take advantage of convection, use low, shallow
bakeware so that moving air can get over the sides and up to the food surface. Foods in covered dishes (like casseroles or pot roasts) do
not benefit from convection cooking.

E Q U I P M E N T
OPERATING YOUR RANGE
OVEN OPERATION
To light the oven, push in and turn the thermostat to the desired operating temperature from 150ºF to 500ºF. You may be able to see a
bright glow from the sides of the oven bottom – this is normal and indicates the hot surface igniter is activated. Once the igniter is hot
enough for ignition, the gas valve will open, allowing the flow of gas into the bake burner. This may take up to one minute.
During the first few minutes of operation, a mild condensation may appear on the interior glass pane of the door window. Water vapor
is a normal by-product of combustion, and the condensation will disappear as the oven warms.
If you would like to bake using the Convection feature, you may turn on the fan at any time – allowing the oven about twenty or thirty
minutes to preheat before use.
Never place any pan or food item on the bottom of the oven, always use an oven rack place in at least the lowest position.
To use the Broil feature of the range, first consider what type of broiling you would like to perform. The closer you are to the broil
burner, the faster you will evaporate moisture from the surface of food and the quicker the surface will brown. In a similar fashion, the
further away you place the food (on the lowest rack, for example) the slower you will evaporate surface moisture and the longer it will
take for the surface to brown. A good rule of thumb is to start about 6” away from the broiler and watch for how quickly the food is
browning.
BROILER OPERATION
To light the broiler, push in and turn the thermostat to the position labeled BROIL on the control knob. In about twenty seconds, you will
see a bright glow in the oven - this is the hot surface igniter. Once the igniter is hot enough for ignition, the gas valve will open,
allowing the flow of gas into the broil burner. This may take up to one minute.
The broiler will have a blue flame that covers the ceramic tiles – after a few minutes, the tiles will glow bright red/orange and radiate
infrared energy. Remember the red surface is over 1800ºF in temperature and can be a source of serious burns or injury.
The Bake burner and Broil burner will not operate at the same time; the convection fan will not operate during Broiling.
RANGETOP-BURNER OPERATION (Sealed and Open Burners)
Make sure there is nothing on the burners and/or grates prior to igniting the burners. Push the knob in, and turn it counter-clockwise
to the HIGH position. Adjust the flame to the desired height. The burners are equiped with a flame-sensing ignition system that
automatically detects the presence of flame on the burners, and relights in the event the flame goes out.
GRILL OPERATION (GR Models Only)
Make sure there is nothing on the grilling rack prior to igniting the grill. Push the knob in and turn it counter-clockwise to the HIGH
position. The power ON indicator light will glow indicating the grill valve is on. The grill is equipped with a flame-sensing ignition system
– that automatically detects the presence of flame on the grill burner – and relights it in the event it goes out. Adjust the flame to the
desired height.
After cooking, allow the module to cool completely and remove the drip tray slowly, discarding grease and other food particles. The
grill grate may be removed - exposing the radiants - which may be lifted out and placed in the dishwasher along with the drip tray for
cleaning. The grate is porcelain coated and may be washed with hot soapy water and a soft brush.
BEST COOKING RESULTS WHEN USING YOUR GRILL
The intense radiant heat from the grill vaporizes the surface of your food, locking in flavor.
»» Add any barbecue sauces during the last few minutes of cooking, long enough to caramelize the sauce.
»» For best results, turn food with tongs or a flat spatula to avoid piercing meat or poultry.
»» Turn meat once when juices rise to the surface. Turning meat more than once results in the loss of meat juices.
»» Never squeeze juices out of meat.
»» Before cooking steaks or chops, trim most of the outside fat to prevent excessive flare-ups. Slash into the edges of
steaks or chops to keep meat flat on the grill.
»» Fish should be cooked at the lowest setting eight to ten minutes for every inch of thickness, measured at the thickest part
of the fish.

GRIDDLE OPERATION (GD Models Only)
The built-in griddle is made of polished steel to provide a smooth cooking surface. A griddle drip pan is included.
Always pre-heat the griddle on the low setting, at least ten minutes before cooking. The griddle burner is equipped with a hot surface
igniter and gas safety valve system.
To Start Cooking:
»» Push knob in and turn the knob counter-clockwise to the MAX position. Preheat griddle for two to three minutes and turn knob to the desired temperature setting.
»» The blue indicator light comes on and stays on until the pre-selected temperature setting is reached and then turns off and on with the heating cycle.
»» For best results, add a small amount of butter, oil, or a cooking spray to the griddle surface. Fatty meats like bacon and sausage do not need extra fat.
Season the Griddle:
1.The griddle has a factory applied coating that must be washed off prior to use. (See Cleaning the Griddle)
2.Pour 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil (not corn or olive oil) and rub on the entire surface of the griddle using a rough towel.
3.Push the griddle control knob in and turn to a medium setting (350°F).
4.Heat until griddle begins to smoke. Turn off griddle and allow it to cool.
5.Returning to step 2, repeat the process.
When you are done “griddling” and while the griddle surface is still warm, remove any left-on food particles. Allow the griddle to cool
and scrape off any excess grease from the surface with a flexible nylon spatula. Pull the spatula forward toward the front and push any
material into the front grease receiver.
To clean the griddle, moisten a soft scrub cloth, adding a drop of mild degreaser dish soap to create a soapy lather - and wipe the griddle
from left to right. Clean in rows from the top to the bottom, taking time to wash the entire griddle surface, including the sides. When
you are done, rinse away all the soap from the cloth and wipe any suds from the griddle surface. Remove all remaining moisture from
the griddle with the second, clean soft cloth. Wipe the area in rows again as well as the sides and front. You may have to repeat action to
ensure the griddle plate is dry and sparkling.
Cleaning the Griddle:
»» The griddle is not to be removed for cleaning.
»» Using a flat plastic spatula gently remove burned on food.
»» Clean the griddle thoroughly with hot soapy water and a rough towel.
»» Clean the griddle drip pan and trough after each use with hot soapy water and a sponge.
»»
It is normal for the griddle to darken with age and use, similar to commercial cooking equipment.

CARE & CLEANING
DRYING AND DEHYDRATING
While the United States Department of Agriculture advises: DO NOT hold foods at temperature between 40ºF to 140ºF more than 2
hours – and cooking raw foods below 275ºF is not recommended, the low setting of the oven (ranging from 150ºF to 225ºF) may be used
to keep food hot and in special recipes, used to dehydrate fruits and vegetables.
During dehydration, the convection fans circulates hot air over the food, causes moisture to escape from the food surface – generally
drying it out. This removal of water inhibits growth of microorganisms and slows down the activity of enzymes. Starting with only the
freshest, best quality food items, prepare as directed and:
»» Place the food on drying racks spaced evenly in the oven cavity.
»» Set the temperature control to 200ºF and switch on the convection fan.
»» Remember to periodically check the food items for dryness state.
CARE AND CLEANING
It is always easier to clean as you go – and while some evenings you’d rather sit down with a good book instead of a Scrubby, keeping
your range cooktop and oven in a ready to go state for the next meal makes everything a little more tolerable.
When cleaning the range:
»» Use the mildest procedure that will do the job efficiently and effectively – and since some cleaners are harsher than others, it is best to try them on a small, inconspicuous area first.
»» Use only clean, soft cloths, sponges, paper towels, plastic brushes, non-metal soap pads for cleaning and scouring.
»» When cleaning the oven door, control panel, top curved section (called the bull nose) or the flat top area – always pretend it is made of wood – and rub the finish in the direction of the grain. This is the most effective cleaning direction, to prevent marring the surface.
»» Any part of this appliance can be cleaned with hot, sudsy water. When rinsing is required, rinse thoroughly.
»» Always wipe dry immediately to reduce the appearance of water marks.
To Clean the Cooktop
The cooktop is brushed Stainless Steel with polished aluminum burner heads. The burner caps are steel coated porcelain.
»» Do not use abrasives on Stainless Steel. Use towels, sponges or soft plastic scrubbers. RUB ONLY WITH THE “GRAIN”.
»» Do not use steel wool pads or green rough Scrubby’s.
»» Wash all cooking surfaces with hot water and dish detergent such as Simple Green, Ivory Liquid, or Joy.
»» Rub stubborn spots with baking soda or liquid cleaner such as Windex All Surface Cleaner or 409.
»» Grates and burner caps can be soaked in hot soapy water. Mild scouring cleaners can be used, such as Bon Ami or Cameo on
»» grates and burner caps.
To Clean the Oven
The oven cavity is porcelainized with steel rack guides and racks. The infrared broiler does not need to be cleaned. Any soil is burned
off by the intense heat.
»» Place a medium glass baking dish filled with two cups of ammonia. Close the door and allow the dish to sit overnight. This process softens the soil for easier removal.
»» Wash the interior of the oven with soap and water. Make a paste with baking soda and water and using a sponge or nylon pad rub away stubborn stains.
»» Use mild scrubbing compounds such as Bon Ami or Cameo if necessary.
»» Do not use steel wool pads or abrasive sponges or scrubbers.
»» If necessary, oven cleaner can be used. DO NOT SPRAY OVEN CLEANER INTO THE CONVECTION FANS OR UP ONTO THE INFRARED BROILER.
»» When spray oven cleaners are used, follow using a 1/4 cup vinegar mixed with one quart of water to rinse the oven.
»» Do not use scouring powders on the glass window; oven spray may be used on the window. Rinse with vinegar and water solution.

CARE & CLEANING
CLEANING RECOMMENDATIONS
PART / MATERIAL
CLEANING SUGGESTIONS
BEING CAREFUL
Main Top/
Porcelain Enamel
Soft Scrub may be used here. With a cool or slightly warm
surface, use a damp sponge or cloth as recommended by
the manufacturer.
Since the surface is glass (it can be scratched by certain materials)
try to rub gently in small circles to allow time and chemical reactions to take place.
Sealed Burners
(Cuisine)
Caps and burner heads can be removed for cleaning using
hot sudsy water. A stiff nylon bristle tooth brush can be
used to clean burner port openings.
Remember to dry out the ports (try to blow air through them
if you like). Water clogged ports burn with erratic flames and
could be dangerous.
Open Burners
(Performer)
The cast iron burner heads are heavy and porcelain coated.
If they are dirty, remove any large debris and gently scrub
under hot, soapy water.
Like the sealed burners, remember to dry out the ports (try to
blow air through them if you like).
Water clogged ports burn with erratic flames and could be
dangerous.
Control Knobs/
Powder Paint
Use dry hands to pull off the knobs; hot sudsy water works
best here…
…with a sponge to avoid scratching
Chrome Knob
Bezels
Hot soapy water works well here, with a sponge or soft
cloth.
As with any round feature that meets the stainless steel grain, be
careful to clean the bezels in a circular motion – and not contact
the stainless steel control panel.
Exterior Finish
Island Trim
Use hot soapy water, Fantastic, Formula 409, rinse and dry
immediately. For hard water spots, try household vinegar or
CLR. If there is any heat discoloration, consider using Zud,
Wright’s All Purpose Polish or Blue Away.
Rub lightly in the direction of the grain of the stainless steel.
Salt (sodium chloride), chlorine or chlorine compounds in some
cleaners are corrosive to Stainless Steel.
Grates/Porcelain
Enamel on
Cast Iron
Hot water & detergent with scrubby, or soap filled steel
wool pad for really tough stains will work.
Remove sugar or acid based spills, they tend to attack the
enamel. Remember the grates are heavy, use care when lifting
and replacing.
Griddle
Moisten a soft scrub cloth, adding a drop of mild dish soap
to create a soapy lather - and wipe the griddle from left to
right.
Use plastic spatulas and spoons when working the griddle. See
more tips in the discussion on griddle operation above.

Rack Supports: On each side of the oven, heavy chrome-plated rack
supports allow five positions, numbered from the bottom up.
Burner On Indicator Light: Whenever an oven burner is
activated (either Bake or Broil), the burner on indicator will glow. It
is normal for the indicator light to cycle off and on during baking or
broiling – showing that the requested temperature has been achieved
– or that more heat is required.
Oven Control Knob: The oven control knob is used to set the
Baking temperature or to select the Broil function. During baking, the
convection fan may be activated.
Door Gasket: The door gasket is made from high temperature
materials and creates a seal between the hot oven and the cool
kitchen.
Bake Burner: The Bake burner is located in the center of the oven,
below the oven bottom and is activated by the Oven Control Knob.
Convection Fan and Switch: Operated by the front panel
switch, the convection fan circulates oven air, removing the “thermal
boundary layer” on items being baked – and in doing so – speeding
up heat transfer and cook time by as much as 25%. Convection is
active only during baking.
Oven Racks: Each oven is supplied with two heavy chromeplated adjustable oven racks.
Ceramic Tile Infrared Broil Burner: Positioned in the oven ceiling,
burning gas heats the ceramic tile to a temperature of 1,850ºF –
creating searing heat similar to the glowing coals of a wood fire.
Broil Burner Igniter: The igniter glows a very hot, bright red-orange
color, reaching proper ignition temperature to light the Ceramic Tile
Infrared Broil Burner.
Oven Light and Switch: A single lamp is provided in the oven to
illuminate baked and broiled food items, as well as shed some light on
the wall to help during clean-up – activated by the front panel switch.
