CAUTION
DO NOT store items of interest to children over the unit. Children
climbing to reach items could be seriously injured.
• 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 spillovers 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.
Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers, which may ignite.
• Loose-fitting or hanging garments should NEVER be worn while
using the appliance.
• Use proper pan size. This appliance is equipped with one or more
surface units of different size. Select utensil having flat bottoms
large enough to cover the surface unit heating element. The use of
undersized utensils will expose a portion of the heating element to
direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper
relationship of utensil to surface unit will also improve efficiency.
• Use only dry potholders. Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces
may result in burns from steam. DO NOT let potholders touch hot
surface areas. DO NOT use a towel or other bulky cloth.

Getting Started
Before Using Cooktop
• DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE UNITS OR AREAS NEAR UNITS.
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.
• 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 toward the center
of the range so that it does not extend over adjacent surface
elements.
• Keep area clean and free from combustible material, gasoline, and
other flammable liquids. Combustible items (paper, plastic, etc.)
may ignite and metallic items may become hot and cause burns.
• DO NOT heat unopened food containers; build-up of pressure may
cause the container to explode and result in injury.
• Clean the cooktop with caution. If a wet sponge or cloth is used to
wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to avoid steam burns.
Some cleansers can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot
surface.
• DO NOTcook on a broken cooktop. Spillovers or cleaning solution
may penetrate a broken glass top and create a risk of electrical
shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately should your
cooktop become broken.
• Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware or
other glazed utensils are suitable for glass cooktop use without
breaking due to the sudden change in temperature.
All products are wiped clean with solvents at the factory to remove any
visible signs of dirt, oil, and grease which may have remained from the
manufacturing process.
Glass Cooktop
Clean your glass top before the first time you use it. A thorough
cleaning with a glass top cleaner is recommended. It only takes a
minute and puts a clean, shiny coating on the glass top before its
initial use.
Cooking Utensils
Each cook has his or her own preference for the particular cooking
utensils that are most appropriate for the type of cooking being done.
Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or
other glazed utensils are suitable for glass cooktop use without
breaking due to the sudden change in temperature. This is a matter of
personal choice. As with any cookware, yours should be in good
condition and free from excessive dents on the bottom to provide
maximum performance and convenience.
Operating Single Elements
All burners have variable controls. Turn the knob counter-clockwise one
click left to achieve the lowest setting. Continue turning clockwise
through the Med to Med-Hi Settings. The final setting once you have
turned the knob counter-clockwise to its max is the Hi setting.
CAUTION
Using cast iron cookware on the glass cooktop is not recommended.
Cast iron retains heat and may result in cooktop damage.
Operating Double Elements
All burners have variable controls. Turn the knob counter-clockwise one
click left to achieve the highest setting for the center element.
Continue turning clockwise through the Med-Hi, Med, and down to
the Lo setting.
Continuing to turn counter-clockwise will bring you into the Lo setting
with both elements now activated. From here, continue turning
counter-clockwise to activate the Lo-Med, Med, and Med-Hi settings of
both elements. The final setting once you have turned the knob
counter-clockwise to its max is the Hi setting with both elements
activated.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Any piece of equipment works better and lasts longer when
maintained properly and kept clean. Cooking equipment is no
exception. Your cooktop must be kept clean. Make sure all controls
are in the “OFF” position.
Glass Ceramic Top
Cleaning of glass ceramic tops is different from cleaning a standard
porcelain finish. To maintain and protect the surface of your new glass
ceramic top, follow these basic steps:
For normal, light soil:
1. Rub a few drops of a glass ceramic cleaning cream to the cool
soiled area using a damp paper towel.
2. Wipe until all soil and cream are removed. Frequent cleaning
leaves a protective coating which is essential in preventing
scratches and abrasions.
For heavy, burned soil:
1. Rub a few drops of glass ceramic cleaning cream to the cool soiled
area using a damp paper towel.
2. Carefully scrape remaining soil with a single-edged razor blade.
Hold the blade at a 30˚ angle against the ceramic surface.
3. If any soil remains, repeat the steps above. For additional
protection, after all soil has been removed, polish the entire surface
with the cleaning cream.
4. Buff with a dry paper towel. As the cleaning cream cleans, it leaves
a protective coating on the glass surface. This coating helps to
prevent build-up of mineral deposits (water spots) and will make
future cleaning easier.

STEEL WOOL PADS OR ANY ABRASIVE CLOTHS AND MATERIALS
SUCH AS CLEANSERS, OVEN CLEANERS, OR ABRASIVE POWDERS.
THEY CAN PERMANENTLY DAMAGE YOUR COOKTOP.
Control Knobs
MAKE SURE ALL CONTROL KNOBS POINT TO THE “OFF” POSITION
BEFORE REMOVING. Pull the knobs straight off. Wash in detergent and
warm water. Dry completely and replace by pushing firmly onto stem.
Stainless Steel Parts
All stainless steel body parts should be wiped regularly with hot, soapy
water at the end of each cooling period and with a liquid cleaner
designed for that material when soapy water will not do the job. DO NOT
use steel wool, abrasive cloths, cleansers, or powders. If necessary, scrape
stainless steel to remove encrusted materials, soak the area with hot
towels to loosen the material, then use a wooden or nylon spatula or
scraper. DO NOT use a metal knife, spatula, or any other metal tool to
scrape stainless steel. DO NOT permit citrus or tomato juice to remain on
stainless steel surface, as citric acid will permanently discolor stainless
steel. Wipe up any spills immediately.
Turn element to
LO; use several
paper towels to
wipe the spill
immediately. Let
glass top cool and
carefully scrape off
