About surface cooking
BEFORE COOKING
CAUTION
• Do not use the glass cooktop surface as a cutting board.
• Do not place or store items that can melt or catch fire on the glass cooktop, even
when it is not being used.
• Turn the surface units on only after placing the cookware.
• Do not store heavy items above the cooktop surface. They could fall and damage it.
DURING COOKING
CAUTION
• Do not place aluminum foil or plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers, spoon
holders, or plastic wrappings on the range when it is in use. The hot air from the vent
could melt plastics or ignite flammable items.
• Make sure the correct surface unit is turned on.
• Never cook directly on the glass. Always use cookware.
• Always place the pan in the center of the surface unit you are cooking on.
• Never leave surface units unattended while using a high heat setting. Boilovers cause
smoking and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
• Turn the surface units off before removing cookware.
• Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto the surface and be very
difficult to remove.
AFTER COOKING
CAUTION
• Do not touch the surface units until they have cooled down.
• The surface may be still be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is touched
before it has cooled down sufficiently.
• Immediately clean spills on the cooking area to prevent a tough cleaning chore later.
• If cabinet storage is provided directly above the cooking surface, make sure that the
items are infrequently used and can be safely stored in an area subjected to heat.
Temperatures may be unsafe for items such as volatile liquids, cleaners or aerosol
sprays.
About the radiant surface elements
The temperature rises gradually and evenly. As the temperature rises, the radiant element will glow
red. To maintain the selected setting, the element will cycle on and off. The heating element retains
enough heat to provide a uniform and consistent heat during the off cycle. For efficient cooking,
turn off the element several minutes before cooking is complete. This will allow residual heat to
complete the cooking process.
Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the element to cycle ON and OFF, even at the HI
setting. This helps to prevent damage to the ceramic cooktop. Cycling at the HI setting is
normal and can occur if the cookware is too small for the radiant element or if the cookware
bottom is not flat.

at serving temperature.
• The surface warmer will not glow red like the cooking elements.
• Do not warm food on the warming center for more than two hours.
• Use only cookware and dishes recommended as safe for oven and cooktop use.
CAUTION
• When warming pastries and breads the cover should have an opening to allow
moisture to escape.
• Do not use plastic wrap to cover foods. Plastic may melt onto the surface and be very
difficult to clean.

USING THE PROPER COOKWARE
Using the right cookware can prevent many problems, such as uneven cooking or extended
cooking times. Using the proper pans will reduce cooking times and cook food more evenly.
CORRECT
Flat bottom and straight sides.
• Tight fitting lids.
Check for flatness by
rotating a ruler across the
bottom of the cookware.
INCORRECT
Curved and warped pan
bottoms.
• Weight of handle does not tilt
pan.
• Pan is well balanced.
• Pan size matches the amount
of food to be prepared
and the size of the surface
element.
• Made of a material that
conducts heat well.
Pan overhangs element by more
than one-half inch.
Pan is smaller than element.
• Always match pot diameter to
element surface diameter.
Heavy handle tilts pan.
CHOOSING THE PROPER COOKWARE
What your cookware is made of determines how evenly and quickly heat is transferred from the
surface element to the pan bottom.
• ALUMINUM - Excellent heat conductor. Some types of food will cause the aluminum to
darken. (Anodized aluminum cookware resists staining & pitting.). If aluminum pans are slid
across the ceramic cooktop, they may leave metal marks that resemble scratches. Remove
these marks immediately.
• COPPER - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily. May leave metal marks on ceramic
glass (see above).
• STAINLESS STEEL - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking results. Is durable, easy to
clean and resists staining.
• CAST IRON - A poor conductor; retains heat very well. Cooks evenly once cooking
temperature is reached. Not recommended for use on ceramic cooktops.
• ENAMELWARE - Heating characteristics will vary depending on base material. Porcelainenamel coating must be smooth to avoid scratching ceramic cooktops.
• GLASS - Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for ceramic cooktop surfaces because it
may scratch the glass.

Protecting the smoothtop surface
Cleaning
• Clean the cooktop before using it for the first time.
• Clean your cooktop daily or after each use. This will keep your cooktop looking good and can
prevent damage.
• If a spillover occurs while cooking, immediately clean the spill from the cooking area while it is
hot to prevent a tough cleaning chore later. Using extreme care, wipe the spill with a clean dry
towel.
• Do not allow spills to remain on the cooking area or the cooktop trim for a long period of time.
• Do not use chlorine bleach, ammonia, or other cleansers not specifically recommended for use
on a glass-ceramic surface.
Preventing marks and scratches
• Do not use glass cookware. They may scratch the cooktop.
• Do not place a trivet or wok ring between the cooktop and the pan. These items can mark or
scratch the cooktop.
02 SURFACE COOKING
• Do not use abrasive cleansing powders or scouring pads, which will scratch the cooktop.
• Make sure the cooktop and the pan bottom are clean.
• Do not slide metal pans across the cooktop.
Preventing stains
• Do not use a soiled dish cloth or sponge to clean the cooktop surface. A film will remain, which
may cause stains on the cooking surface after the area is heated.
• Continuously cooking on a soiled surface may/will result in a permanent stain.
Preventing other damage
• Do not allow plastic, sugar, or foods with high sugar content to melt onto the hot cooktop.
Should this happen, clean immediately.
• Do not let a pan boil dry as this will damage the cooktop and the pan.
• Do not cook food directly on the cooktop without the proper cookware.

SELF-CLEANING
A self-cleaning oven uses high temperatures (well above cooking temperatures) to burn off leftover
grease and residue completely or reduce them to a finely powdered ash that you can wipe away
with a damp cloth.
CAUTION
• During the self-cleaning cycle, the outside of the range can become very hot to touch.
Do not leave small children unattended near the appliance.
• The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during the selfcleaning cycle of any range. Move birds to another well-ventilated room.
• Do not line the oven walls, racks, bottom or any other part of the range with
aluminum foil. Doing so will result in poor heat distribution, produce poor baking
results and cause permanent damage to the oven interior (aluminum foil will melt to
the interior surface of the oven).
• Do not force the oven door open. This can damage the automatic door locking
system. Use care when opening the oven door after the self-cleaning cycle is
complete. Stand to the side of the oven when opening the door to allow hot air or
steam to escape. The oven may still be VERy HOT.
Before a self-cleaning cycle
• We recommend venting your kitchen with an open window
or using a ventilation fan or hood during the self-cleaning
cycle.
Fig. 1
• Remove the wire rack, broil pan, broil pan insert, all
cookware and any aluminum foil from the oven.
• Wipe up debris from the oven bottom. (Fig. 1)
• The silver-colored oven racks can be self-cleaned, but they
will darken, lose their luster and become hard to slide.
Fig. 2
Don’t hand
clean the
oven door
gasket.
You may
hand clean
the door.
• Residue on the front frame of the range and outside the
gasket on the door will need to be cleaned by hand. Clean
these areas with hot water, soap-filled steel-wool pads or
cleansers such as Soft Scrub. Rinse well with clean water
and dry.
• Do not clean the gasket. The fiberglass material of the oven
door gasket cannot withstand abrasion. It is essential for
the gasket to remain intact. If you notice it becoming worn
or frayed, replace it. (Fig. 2)
• Make sure the oven light bulb cover is in place and the
oven light is off.

sound 6 times.)
1. Press the CLEAR/OFF pad.
2. You will be able to open the oven door once the oven has cooled down for approximately 1
hour.
After a self-cleaning cycle
• You may notice some white ash in the oven. Wipe it up with a damp cloth after the oven cools.
(If white spots remain, remove them with a soap-filled steel wool pad and rinse thoroughly with
a vinegar and water mixture.)
• If the oven is not clean after one cycle, repeat the cycle.
• You cannot set the oven for cooking until the oven is cool enough for the door to unlock.

STEAM-CLEANING
How to set the oven for steam-cleaning
Steam-cleaning saves time and energy for light cleaning. For heavier-duty cleaning of debris and
grease, use the self-cleaning function.
1. Remove all accessories from the oven.
2. Pour approximately 10 oz. (300 ml) of water onto the bottom of
the empty oven and close the oven door.
Use normal water only, no distilled water.
. Press the STEAM CLEAN pad.
. Press the SET/START pad.
When the operation is complete, the display will blink and a beep
will sound.
. Press the CLEAR/OFF pad.
. Clean the oven’s interior.
There will be a significant amount of water remaining on the
bottom of the oven after a steam-cleaning cycle. Remove the
residual water with a sponge or soft dry cloth.
When steam-cleaning, use exactly 10 oz. of water since this produces the best results.
If you press the STEAM CLEAN pad when the oven temperature is above 100˚F, Hot will
appear in the display. Because these functions produce the best results when started while
the oven is cool, we recommend that you wait until the oven has cooled down and Hot
disappears from the display.
After a steam-cleaning cycle
• Take care when opening the door before a steam-cleaning procedure has ended; the water on
the bottom is hot.
• Open the oven door and remove the remaining water with a sponge. Do not leave the residual
water in the oven for any length of time. Wipe the oven clean and dry with a soft cloth (do not
forget to wipe under the oven door seal).
• Use a detergent-soaked sponge, a soft brush, or a nylon scrubber to wipe the oven interior.
Remove stubborn residue with a nylon scourer. You can remove lime deposits with a cloth
soaked in vinegar.
• If the oven remains dirty, you can repeat the procedure once the oven has cooled.
• For heavy residue, such as grease left over from roasting, we recommend that you rub
detergent into the residue before activating the steam-cleaning function.
• After cleaning, leave the oven door ajar at a 15° angle to allow the interior enamel surface to dry
thoroughly.

CARE AND CLEANING OF THE GLASS COOKTOP
Normal daily use cleaning
Use only a ceramic cooktop cleaner on the glass cooktop. Other creams may not be as effective.
By following these steps, you can maintain and protect the surface of your glass cooktop.
1. Before using the cooktop for the first time, clean it with a ceramic cooktop cleaner. This helps
protect the top and makes cleanup easier.
2. Daily use of a ceramic cooktop cleaner will help keep the cooktop looking new.
3. Shake the cleaning cream well. Apply a few drops of cleaner directly to the cooktop.
4. Use a paper towel or a cleaning pad for ceramic cooktops to clean the entire cooktop surface.
WARNING
DAMAGE to your glass surface may occur if you use scrub pads other than those
recommended.
Removing burned-on residue
1. Allow the cooktop to cool.
2. Spread a few drops of ceramic cooktop cleaner
on the entire burned residue area.
. Using the cleaning pad for ceramic cooktops, rub
the residue area, applying pressure as needed.
. If any residue remains, repeat the steps listed
above as needed.
05 MAINTAINING YOUR APPLIANCE
5. Use a dry cloth or paper towel to remove all cleaning residue. No need to rinse.
. For additional protection, after all residue has been
removed, polish the entire surface with ceramic
cooktop cleaner and a paper towel.
Removing heavy, burned-on residue
1. Allow the cooktop to cool.
2. Use the single-edge razor-blade scraper at
approximately a 45° angle against the glass
surface and scrape the soil. It will be necessary to
apply pressure in order to remove the residue.
. After scraping with the razor scraper, spread a few
drops of ceramic cooktop cleaner on the entire
burned residue area. Use the cleaning pad to
remove any remaining residue. (Do not scrape the
seal.)
. For additional protection, after all residue has
been removed, polish the entire surface with the
cooktop cleaner and a paper towel.

Removing metal marks and scratches
1. Be careful not to slide pots and pans across your cooktop. It will leave marks on the cooktop
surface. You can remove these marks by applying ceramic cooktop cleaner.
2. If pots with a thin overlay of aluminum or copper are allowed to boil dry, the overlay may leave
black discoloration on the cooktop. You should remove this discoloration immediately or it may
become permanent.
WARNING
Carefully check the bottoms of pans for roughness that may scratch the cooktop.
Cleaning the cooktop seal
To clean the seal around the edges of the glass, lay a
wet cloth on it for a few minutes, then wipe clean with
a nonabrasive cleaner.
Potential for permanent damage to the glass surface
• Sugary spillovers (such as jellies, fudge, candy, syrups) or melted plastics can cause pitting
of the surface of your cooktop. This is not covered under the warranty. You should clean the
spill while it is still hot. Take special care when removing hot substances. Refer to the following
section.
• When using a scraper, be sure it is new and the razor blade is still sharp; do not use a dull or
nicked blade.
Cleaning sugary spills and melted plastic
1. Turn off all surface units. Remove hot pans.
2. Wearing an oven mitt, use a single-edge razor-blade scraper to move the spill to a cool area of
the cooktop. Remove the spill with paper towels.
3. Any remaining spillover should be left until the surface of the cooktop has cooled.
4. Don’t use the surface units again until all of the residue has been completely removed.
If pitting or indentation in the glass surface has already occurred, the cooktop glass will
have to be replaced. In this case, service will be necessary.
