• The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic
Enforcement Act requires the Governor of
California to publish a list of substances
known to the state to cause cancer, birth
defects or other reproductive harm,
and requires businesses to warn customers
of potential exposure to such substances.
• Gas appliances can cause minor exposure to
four of these substances, namely benzene,
carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and soot,
caused primarily by the incomplete
combustion of natural gas or LP fuels.
Properly adjusted burners, indicated by
a bluish rather than a yellow flame, will
minimize incomplete combustion. Exposure
to these substances can be minimized further
by venting with an open window or using the
ventilation fan.
• When you get your cooktop, have the installer
show you the location of the gas shut-off valve
and how to shut it off if necessary.
• Have your cooktop installed and properly
grounded by a qualified installer, in
accordance with the installation instructions.
Any adjustment and service should be
performed only by qualified gas range
installers or service technicians.
• Plug your cooktop into a 120-volt grounded
outlet only. Do not remove the round
grounding prong from the plug. If in doubt
about the grounding of the home electrical
system, it is your personal responsibility and
obligation to have an ungrounded outlet
replaced with a properly-grounded threeprong outlet in accordance with the National
Electrical Code. Do not use an extension cord
with this appliance.
• Be sure all packing materials are removed
from the cooktop before operating it
to prevent fire or smoke damage should
the packing material ignite.
• Be sure your cooktop is correctly adjusted
by a qualified service technician or installer
for the type of gas (natural or LP) which is
to be used.
• Do not attempt to repair or replace any part
of your cooktop unless it is specifically
recommended in this manual. All other
servicing should be referred to a qualified
• Do not leave children alone or unattended
where a cooktop is hot or in operation.
They could be seriously burned.
Items of interest to
children should not be stored in cabinets
above a cooktop—children climbing on the
cooktop to reach items could be seriously
• Clean the cooktop with caution. If a wet
sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot
cooktop, be careful to avoid steam burns.
• Do not clean the cooktop with flammable or
volatile cleaning fluids.
• Do not clean the cooktop when the appliance
is in use.
• Avoid scratching the cooktop with sharp
instruments, or with rings and other jewelry.
• Let the burner grates and other surfaces cool
before touching them or leaving them where
children can reach them.
• Never use the cooktop as a cutting board.
• Never wear loose-fitting or hanging garments
while using the appliance. Be careful when
reaching for items stored in cabinets over the
cooktop. Flammable material could be ignited
if brought in contact with flame or hot
surfaces and may cause severe burns.
• For your safety, never use your appliance for
warming or heating the room.
• Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick
up a flaming pan. Turn the controls off.
Smother a flaming pan on a surface burner
by covering the pan completely with a wellfitting lid, cookie sheet or flat tray. Use a
multi-purpose dry chemical or foam-type
fire extinguisher.
Flaming grease outside a pan can be put
out by covering it with baking soda or, if
available, by using a multi-purpose dry
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.
• Do not store flammable materials near the
cooktop. Do not store or use gasoline or
other flammable vapors and liquids in the
vicinity of this or any other appliance.
• Do not let cooking grease or other flammable
materials accumulate on or near the cooktop.
• Never leave surface burners unattended at
high flame settings. Boilovers cause smoking
and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
• Adjust surface burner flame size so it does
not extend beyond the edge of the cookware.
Excessive flame is hazardous.
• Use only dry pot holders—moist or damp pot
holders on hot surfaces may result in burns
from steam. Do not let pot holders come near
open flames when lifting cookware. Do not
use a towel or other bulky cloth in place of a
pot holder.
• To minimize the possibility of burns, ignition
of flammable materials and spillage, turn
cookware handles toward the side or center of
the cooktop without extending over adjacent
burner or vent area.
• Always turn the surface burners to OFF
before removing the cookware.
• Foods for frying should be as dry as possible.
Frost on frozen foods or moisture on fresh
foods can cause hot fat to bubble up and over
the sides of the pan.
• Use least possible amount of fat for effective
shallow or deep-fat frying. Filling the pan too
full of fat can cause spillovers when food is
• Carefully watch foods being fried at high
flame setting.
• If a combination of oils or fats will be used in
frying, stir together before heating, or as fats
melt slowly.
• Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.
• Use a deep-fat thermometer whenever
possible to prevent overheating fat beyond
the smoking point.
• Use proper pan size—avoid pans that are
unstable or easily tipped. Select cookware
having flat bottoms large enough to properly
contain food and avoid boilovers and
spillovers, and large enough to cover burner
grate. This will both save cleaning time and
prevent hazardous accumulations of food,
since heavy spattering or spillovers left on
cooktop can ignite. Use pans with handles
that can be easily grasped and remain cool.
• Keep all plastics away from burners.
• To avoid the possibility of a burn, always be
certain that the controls for all burners are at
the off position and all grates are cool before
attempting to remove a grate.
• If the cooktop is located near a window,
do not use long curtains which could blow
over the burners and create a fire hazard.
• If you smell gas, turn off the gas to the
cooktop and call a qualified service
technician. Never use an open flame to locate
a leak.
• Do not cover or block the area around the
cooktop knobs. This area must be kept clear
for proper ventilation and burner
• Cook meat and poultry thoroughly—meat to
at least an INTERNAL temperature of 160°F
and poultry to at least an INTERNAL
temperature of 180°F. Cooking to these
temperatures usually protects against
foodborne illness.
• Clean the cooktop with caution. If a wet
sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot
surface, be careful to avoid steam burns. Some
cleansers can produce noxious fumes if
applied to a hot surface.
NOTE: We recommend that you avoid wiping
any surface unit areas until they have cooled
and the indicator light has gone off. Sugar
spills are the exception to this. Please see the
Glass Cooktop Cleaning section.
• When the cooktop is cool, use only CERAMA
BRYTE® Ceramic Cooktop Cleaner and the
CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Pad to clean the
• To avoid possible damage, do not apply the
cleaning cream to the glass surface when it
is hot.
• After cleaning, use a dry cloth or paper towel
to remove all the cleaning cream residue.
• Read and follow all instructions and warnings
on the cleaning cream labels.
• Do not operate the glass cooktop if the glass is
broken. Spillovers or cleaning solution may
penetrate a broken cooktop and create a risk
of electrical shock. Contact a qualified
technician immediately should your glass
cooktop become broken.
• Do not stand on the glass cooktop.
• Do not touch glass surface while cooking. This
surface may be hot enough to burn. During
and after use, do not touch, or let clothing or
other flammable materials contact the
• Hot surfaces may include both the cooktop
and areas facing the cooktop.
• Avoid scratching the glass cooktop. The
cooktop can be scratched with items such
as sharp instruments, rings or other jewelry
and rivets on clothing.
• Large scratches or impacts to glass cooktops
can lead to broken or shattered glass.
• Never use the glass cooktop surface as a
cutting board.
• Be careful when placing spoons or other
stirring utensils on glass cooktop surface when
it is in use. They may become hot and could
cause burns.
• To minimize the possibility of burns, always
be certain that the controls for all surface
units are at the OFF position and the entire
glass surface is cool before attempting to
clean the cooktop.
• Do not place or store items on top of the
glass cooktop surface even when it is not
in use.
• Use care when touching the cooktop. The
glass surface of the cooktop will retain heat
after the controls have been turned off.
• La loi de l’état de Californie sur l’eau potable
sécurisée et l’application des lois sur les
produits toxiques exige que le Gouverneur de
Californie publie une liste de substances qui,
selon les connaissances de l’état, causent le
cancer, les maladies congénitales ou autre
lésion reproductive, et exige que les
entreprises avertissent leurs clients de leur
exposition potentielle à de telles substances.
• Les appareils à gaz peuvent causer une
exposition mineure à quatre de ces
substances, soit le benzène, le monoxyde de
carbone, le formaldéhyde et la suie, surtout à
cause de la combustion incomplète du gaz
naturel ou des carburants PL.
Des brûleurs correctement ajustés, ce qui est
indiqué par des flammes bleuâtres plutôt que
jaunes, réduiront au minimum la combustion
incomplète. L’exposition à ces substances
peut être réduite davantage en aérant avec
une fenêtre ouverte ou en utilisant le
ventilateur d’aération.
• Lorsque vous recevez votre cuisinière,
demandez à l’installateur de vous montrer
l’emplacement de la soupape d’arrêt et la
façon de la fermer en cas de besoin.
• Demandez à un installateur qualifié d’installer
et de mettre à la terre correctement votre
cuisinière, conformément aux instructions
d’installation. Tout ajustement ou entretien
doit être effectué seulement par des
installateurs de cuisinière à gaz qualifiés
ou des techniciens de service.
• Branchez votre cuisinière seulement sur une
prise de 120 volts mise à la terre. Ne retirez
pas la broche ronde de mise à la terre de la
prise. En cas de doute concernant la mise à la
terre du système électrique de la résidence,
vous assumez la responsabilité et l’obligation
personnelles de faire remplacer toute prise
non mise à la terre par une prise à trois
broches correctement mise à la terre
conformément au Code national de
l’électricité. N’utilisez pas de rallonge de
câble avec cet appareil.
• Assurez-vous que tous les matériaux
d’emballage sont retirés de la cuisinière avant
de la mettre en marche, pour empêcher les
dommages d’incendie et de fumée au cas où
le matériau d’emballage s’enflammerait.
• Assurez-vous que la cuisinière est ajustée
correctement par un technicien de service ou
un installateur qualifié en fonction du type de
gaz (naturel ou PL) qui sera utilisé.
• N’essayez pas de réparer ou de remplacer
toute pièce de la cuisinière sauf si cela est
spécifiquement recommandé dans ce manuel.
Toutes les autres actions de service doivent
être référées à un technicien qualifié.
• Ne laissez pas les enfants seuls ou non
surveillés lorsqu’une cuisinière est chaude
ou en marche. Ils pourraient être brûlés
ATTENTION : Les articles
suscitant l’intérêt des enfants ne doivent pas
être rangés dans les armoires au-dessus de la
cuisinière—les enfants grimpant sur la
cuisinière pour saisir ces articles pourraient
être grièvement blessés.
• Nettoyez la cuisinière avec précaution. Si une
éponge ou un chiffon mouillé est utilisé pour
essuyer les renversements sur une cuisinière
chaude, faites attention d’éviter les brûlures
causées par la vapeur.
• Ne nettoyez pas la cuisinière avec des
nettoyants inflammables ou volatils.
• Ne nettoyez pas la cuisinière lorsqu’elle est
en marche.
• Evitez de rayer la cuisinière avec des
instruments pointus ou avec des bagues
ou d’autres bijoux.
• Laissez refroidir les grilles des brûleurs et les
autres surfaces avant de les toucher ou de les
laisser là où les enfants peuvent les atteindre.
• N’utilisez jamais la cuisinière comme planche
à découper.
• Ne portez jamais de vêtements lâches ou
amples lorsque vous utilisez cet appareil.
Faites attention pour saisir des articles rangés
dans les armoires au-dessus de la cuisinière.
La matière inflammable peut s’enflammer
si elle entre en contact avec les flammes ou
les surfaces chaudes et peut causer des
brûlures graves.
• Pour votre sécurité, n’utilisez jamais votre
appareil pour chauffer ou réchauffer la pièce.
• N’utilisez pas de l’eau sur les incendies de
graisse. Ne saisissez jamais une poêle
enflammée. Arrêtez les contrôles. Etouffez les
flammes d’une poêle placées sur un brûleur
de surface en la recouvrant entièrement d’un
couvercle bien ajusté, d’un plateau à gâteau
ou d’un plateau plat. Utilisez un extincteur à
produit chimique sec multi-usages ou du type
à mousse.
Le graisse enflammée à l’extérieur d’une
poêle peut être éteinte en la couvrant de
bicarbonate de soude ou, s’il est disponible,
en utilisant un extincteur à produit chimique
sec multi-usages ou du type à mousse.
• Ne stockez pas de matière inflammable près
de la cuisinière. Ne stockez pas et n’utilisez
pas d’essence ou d’autres vapeurs ou liquides
inflammables à proximité de cet appareil ou
de tout autre.
• Ne laissez pas la graisse de cuisson ou autre
matière inflammable s’accumuler sur ou près
de la cuisinière.
• Ne laissez jamais les brûleurs de surface sans
surveillance lorsqu’ils sont réglés pour des
flammes hautes. Les débordements excessifs
causent de la fumée et des renversements
graisseux qui pourraient s’enflammer.
• Ajustez la taille des flammes des brûleurs de
surface pour qu’elles ne dépassent pas du
bord du conteneur. Les flammes excessives
sont dangereuses.
• Utilisez seulement des gants secs pour saisir
les plats—les gants humides ou mouillés
placés sur des surfaces chaudes peuvent
causer des brûlures dues à la vapeur. Ne
mettez pas les gants près des flammes vives
pour soulever les plats. N’utilisez pas de
serviette ou autre chiffon encombrant au lieu
des gants de plat.
• Pour réduire au minimum la possibilité de
brûlures, d’inflammation de matière
inflammable et de renversement, tournez les
poignées des plats vers le côté ou le centre de
la cuisinière, sans les placer au-dessus d’un
brûleur adjacent ou une zone d’aération.
• Arrêtez toujours les brûleurs de surface avant
de retirer les plats.
• Les aliments à frire doivent être aussi secs
que possible. Le gel des aliments congelés ou
l’humidité des aliments frais peut causer le
bouillonnement des matières grasses chaudes
et leur déversement sur le côté de la poêle.
• Utiliser la quantité de graisse la plus faible
possible pour la friture à la poêle ou à la
friteuse. Si l’ustensile est trop rempli de
graisse, celle-ci peut déborder lorsque les
aliments sont ajoutés.
• Observez avec soin les aliments frits sur
flammes hautes.
• Si un mélange d’huile et de matières grasses
va être utilisé pour la friture, mélangez avant
le chauffage ou à mesure que les matières
grasses fondent lentement.
• Réchauffez toujours lentement les matières
grasses et observez leur réchauffement.
• Utilisez un thermomètre de friteuse
lorsque cela est possible pour empêcher de
surchauffer les matières grasses au-delà de
leur point de fumée.
• Utiliser des poêles de taille appropriée—
évitez les poêles qui sont instables ou qui
peuvent basculer facilement. Sélectionnez
des ustensiles de cuisine avec des fonds
plats, suffisamment grands pour pouvoir
correctement contenir les aliments et éviter
les débordements et les déversements, et
suffisamment grands pour recouvrir les grilles
des brûleurs. Cela réduira le temps de nettoyage
et empêchera les accumulations dangereuses
d’aliments, étant donné que les éclaboussures
ou les déversements importants laissés sur la
cuisinière peuvent s’enflammer. Utilisez des
poêles avec des poignées qui peuvent être
facilement saisies et qui restent froides.
• Eloignez tous les matériaux en plastique
des brûleurs.
• Pour éviter les risques de brûlures, assurez-vous
toujours que les contrôles des brûleurs sont à la
position d’arrêt et toutes les grilles sont froides
avant d’essayer de retirer une grille.
• Si la cuisinière est située près d’une fenêtre,
n’utilisez pas de longs rideaux qui pourraient
être projetés au-dessus des brûleurs et
constituer un risque d’incendie.
• Si vous sentez du gaz, coupez l’arrivée du gaz
à la cuisinière et appelez un technicien de
service qualifié. N’utilisez jamais de flamme
vive pour rechercher les fuites.
• Ne couvrez pas et ne bloquez pas la zone
autour des boutons de la cuisinière. Cette
zone doit rester dégagée pour assurer une
bonne ventilation et une bonne performance
des brûleurs.
• Cuisez la viande et la volaille complètement—
la viande à une température INTERNE d’au
moins 160°F, et la volaille à une température
INTERNE d’au moins 180°F. La cuisson à ces
températures protège en général contre les
maladies causées par les aliments contaminés.
• Faites attention quand vous nettoyez la table
de cuisson. Si vous utilisez une éponge ou un
linge humide pour essuyer des éclaboussures
sur la surface de cuisson chaude, faites
attention d’éviter les brûlures dues à la
vapeur. Certains nettoyants peuvent produire
des émanations délétères s’ils sont mis sur des
surfaces chaudes.
NOTE : Nous vous recommandons d’éviter
d’essuyer la surface de cuisson tant qu’elle
ne s’est pas refroidie et que la lumière
indicatrice ne s’est pas éteinte. Les
seules exceptions à cette règle sont les
débordements de sucre. Veuillez consulter la
section «Nettoyage de la table de cuisson en

If you wish to use your cooktop with Liquefied
Petroleum Gas, you must follow the Installation
Instructions packed with your cooktop. See LP
Gas Adjustments.
Using Your Cooktop
Gas Cooktop
Your surface burners are lit by electric ignition,
eliminating the need for standing pilot lights
with constantly burning flames.
All five igniters make clicking sounds and spark
even when only a single burner is being turned
on. Do not touch any of the burners when the
igniters are clicking.
All of the burner igniters spark while a burner
is relighting.
In case of a power outage, you can light the
surface burners on your cooktop with a match.
Hold a lighted match to the burner; then turn
the knob to the HIGH position. Use extreme
caution when lighting burners this way.
Surface burners in use when an electrical
power failure occurs will continue to operate
To light
a burner
Push the control knob down and turn it
counterclockwise to the LITE position.
After the burner ignites, turn the knob in
either direction to adjust the flame size from
HI to LO.
To turn a burner off, turn the knob clockwise,
as far as it will go, to the OFF position.
• All of the burners can be used for general
The front right burner is the maximum
output burner best for larger pans and to
bring liquids to a boil faster.
The smaller burners (center and right rear)
will give the best simmer results. They offer
precise cooking performance for delicate
foods, such as sauces or foods which need to
cook over low heat for a long time. They can
be turned down to a very low simmer setting.
• Do not operate a burner for an extended
period of time without cookware on the
grate. The finish on the grate may chip
without cookware to absorb the heat.
• Be sure the burners and grates are cool
before you place your hand, a pot holder,
cleaning cloths or other materials on them.
• Be sure you turn the control knob to OFF
when you finish cooking.
How to
flame size
Watch the flame, not the knob, as you
reduce heat.
The flame size on a gas burner should be
approximately the same diameter of the
cookware you are using.
SIDES OF THE COOKWARE. Any flame larger
than the bottom of the cookware is wasted and
only serves to heat the handle.
Aluminum: Medium-weight cookware is
recommended because it heats quickly
and evenly. Most foods brown evenly in an
aluminum skillet. Use saucepans with
tight-fitting lids for cooking with minimum
amounts of water.
Cast Iron: If heated slowly, most skillets will
give satisfactory results.
Enamelware: Under some conditions, the
enamel of some cookware may melt. Follow
cookware manufacturer’s recommendations for
cooking methods.
Glass: There are two types of glass cookware—
those for oven use only and those for surface
cooking (saucepans, coffee and teapots).
Glass conducts heat very slowly.
Wok this way
We recommend that you use a flat-bottomed wok,
available at your local retail store.
Only a flat-bottomed wok should be used.
Do not use a flat-bottomed wok on a support
ring. Placing the ring over the burner or grate
may cause the burner to work improperly,
resulting in carbon monoxide levels above
allowable current standards. This could be
dangerous to your health.
Stove top
Heatproof Glass-Ceramic: Can be used for
either surface or oven cooking. It conducts
heat very slowly and cools very slowly. Check
cookware manufacturer’s directions to be sure
it can be used on gas cooktops.
Stainless Steel: This metal alone has poor
heating properties, and is usually combined
with copper, aluminum or other metals for
improved heat distribution. Combination metal
skillets generally work satisfactorily if they are
used at medium heat as the manufacturer
Use a flat-bottomed wok.
Do not use stove top grills on your sealed gas
burners. If you use the stove top grill on the
sealed gas burner it will cause incomplete
combustion and can result in exposure to
carbon monoxide levels above allowable
current standards. This can be hazardous to
your health.
Care and Cleaning
Gas Cooktop
Proper care and cleaning are important
so your cooktop will give you efficient and
satisfactory service. Follow these directions

Care and Cleaning
Gas Cooktop
Cast-iron burner grates should be washed
regularly and especially after spillovers.
Wash them in hot, soapy water and rinse
with clean water. Dry the grates with a cloth—
don’t put them back on the cooktop wet.
The grates may also be cleaned in a
Although they are durable, the grates will
gradually lose their shine, regardless of the
best care you can give them. This is due to
their continual exposure to high temperatures.
Do not operate a burner for an extended
period of time without cookware on the grate.
The finish on the grate may chip without
cookware to absorb the heat.
After cleaning, replace the center grate first
with its locking side tabs toward the front.
Replace the side grates so that their side edges
lock over the tabs on the center grate. Make
sure the grates are positioned securely over the
burners and that they are stable and level.
Rubber Grate Feet
For stability, your cooktop has rubber feet on
the burner grates. If any of these rubber feet
should become damaged or lost, replace them
