Always use the LITE position to ignite a burner, then make sure the burner has ignited.
If ignition fails, turn the knob to OFF, and wait a few minutes for the gas to dissipate.
When you set a burner to simmer, do not turn the knob quickly. Make sure the flame
stays on.
Do not place any objects other than cookware on the rangetop.
Before removing or changing cookware, turn off the burners.
Remove food and cookware immediately after cooking.
Make sure all rangetop burners are off and all surfaces have completely cooled before
removing the grates and disassembling the burners.
After cleaning the burner head, make sure it is completely dry before reassembling it.
To avoid carbon monoxide poisoning, do not pour water or other liquids into the
rangetop during cleaning.
Select cookware that is designed for rangetops and that is large enough to cover the
grates. Burner flames should not extend beyond the bottom of the cookware.
To avoid cookware discoloration, deformity, and/or carbon monoxide poisoning, do not
use cookware that is exceedingly larger than the grate.
Turn cookware handles to the side or rear of the rangetop and not over active burners
or the front edge of the rangetop.
Stand at a safe distance while frying to avoid hot spatter.
When frying, always heat the oil slowly, and monitor the oil as it heats. When frying
foods at high heat, monitor the oil throughout the cooking process. If combining fats or
oils for frying, mix them together before heating.
Use a deep-fry thermometer when possible to avoid heating the oil beyond its smoke
point. (Know the smoke point of the oil you are using.)
