To Prevent Fire or Smoke Damage
• Be sure all packing materials are removed from the appliance
before operating it.
• Keep area around appliance clear and free from combustible
materials, gasoline, and other flammable vapors and materials.
• If appliance is installed near a window, proper precautions should
be taken to prevent curtains from blowing over burners.
• NEVER leave any items on the cooktop. The hot air from the vent
may ignite flammable items and may increase pressure in closed
containers which may cause them to burst.
• Many aerosol-type spray cans are EXPLOSIVE when exposed to
heat and may be highly flammable. Avoid their use or storage near
an appliance.
• Many plastics are vulnerable to heat. Keep plastics away from parts
of the appliance that may become warm or hot. DO NOT leave
plastic items on the cooktop as they may melt or soften if left too
close to the vent or a surface element.
• Combustible items (paper, plastic, etc.) may ignite and metallic
items may become hot and cause burns. DO NOT pour spirits over
hot foods.
In Case of Fire
To ensure proper and safe operation: Appliance must be properly
installed and grounded by a qualified technician. DO NOT attempt to
adjust, repair, service, or replace any part of your appliance unless it
is specifically recommended in this manual. All other servicing should
be referred to a qualified services. For proper and safe operation, this
unit is not intended to be operated by an external timer or separate
remote control system.

Cooking Safety
Cookware Safety
• ALWAYS place a pan on a surface element before turning it on.
Be sure you know which knob controls which surface element. Make
sure the correct element is turned on. When cooking is completed,
turn element off before removing pan.
• NEVER leave a surface cooking operation unattended, especially
when using a high heat setting or when deep fat frying. Boil overs
cause smoking and greasy spillovers may ignite. Clean up greasy
spills as soon as possible. DO NOT use high heat for extended
cooking operations.
• NEVER heat an unopened container on the surface element.
Pressure build-up may cause container to burst resulting in serious
personal injury or damage to the appliance.
• Use dry, sturdy pot holders. Damp pot holders may cause burns
from steam. Dishtowels or other substitutes should NEVER be used
as pot holders because they can trail across hot surface elements
and ignite or get caught on appliance parts.
• ALWAYS let quantities of hot fat used for deep fat frying cool
before attempting to move or handle.
• DO NOT let cooking grease or other flammable materials
accumulate in or near the appliance, hood, or vent fan. Clean hood
frequently to prevent grease from accumulating on hood or filter.
When flaming foods under the hood, TURN THE FAN OFF.
• NEVER wear garments made of flammable material or loose fitting
or long-sleeved apparel while cooking. Clothing may ignite or catch
on cookware handles.
• PREPARED FOOD WARNING: Follow food manufacturer’s
instructions. If a plastic frozen food container and/or its cover
distorts, warps, or is otherwise damaged during cooking,
immediately discard the food and its container. The food could
be contaminated.
• If you are “flaming” liquor or other spirits under an exhaust, TURN
THE FAN OFF. The draft could cause the flames to spread out of
control.
• This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including
children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabililties, or
lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given
supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance. Children
should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the
appliance.
• Use pans with flat bottoms and handles that are easily grasped and
stay cool. Avoid using unstable, warped, easily tipped or loosehandled pans. Pans with heavy handles (especially small pans) could
be unstable and tip easily. Pans that are heavy to move when filled
with food may also be hazardous.
• Be sure cookware is large enough to properly contain food and
avoid boil overs. Pan size is particularly important in deep fat frying.
Pan should accommodate the volume of food that is to be added
as well as the bubble action of fat.
• To minimize burns, ignition of flammable materials and spillage due
to unintentional contact with the cookware, DO NOT extend
handles over adjacent burners. ALWAYS turn pan handles toward
the side or back of the appliance, not out into the room where they
are easily hit or reached by children.
• NEVER let a pan boil dry as this could damage the cookware and
the appliance.
• This appliance has been tested for safe performance using
conventional cookware. DO NOT use any devices or accessories
that are not specifically recommended in this guide. DO NOT use
eyelid covers for the surface units. The use of devices or accessories
that are not expressly recommended in this manual can create
serious safety hazards, result in performance problems, and reduce
the life of the components of the appliance.
• Use proper pan material. Refer to “Before Using Cooktop” section
for recommended cookware. Proper relationship of cookware to
surface unit will also improve efficiency.
Please Read and Follow
Heating Elements and Glass Ceramic Cooking Surfaces
• NEVER touch the glass surface areas directly on or adjacent to the
heating elements when the cooktop is in use.
• Heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in color.
Areas near elements may be hot enough to cause burns.
• During and after use, DO NOT touch or let clothing or other
flammable material contact surface of cooktop or areas near
heating elements, until they have had sufficient time to cool.
• DO NOT COOK ON BROKEN COOKING SURFACE. If cooking
surface should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may
penetrate the broken cooking surface and create a risk of electric
shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.
CAUTION
DO NOT store items of interest to children over the unit. They could be
seriously injured when climbing to reach these items. Children should
be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.

Cooking Utensils
Induction Cooktops - Radio Interference
This unit generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and,
if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If
this unit does cause harmful interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by turning the unit off and on, the
user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of
the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna
• Increase the distance between the unit and receiver
• Connect the unit into an outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
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.

Induction cooking utilizes magnetic
power which reacts with iron in the
base of cookware, instantly
transforming the pot or pan into the
heat source. The heat stops when the
cookware is removed. Your cookware
MUST have a magnetic layer of steel
for your induction cooktop to operate
properly. The cookware should have a
flat, heavy magnetic bottom and
straight sides with a diameter of 5”
(13 cm) to 12” (31 cm) to accommodate the various sized elements.
The induction cookware should be in good condition and free from
excessive dents on the bottom to provide maximum performance and
convenience.

Surface Operation
CAUTION
Do not heat empty cookware or let cookware boil dry. The cookware
can absorb an excessive amount of heat very quickly, resulting in
possible damage to the cookware and ceramic glass.
Surface Cooking Tips
• The minimum pot or pan diameter recommended is 5” (13 cm).
Use of pots or pans as small as 4” (10 cm) is possible but not
recommended.
• Remember to use the proper size cookware for the size element
chosen. Smaller cookware should be used for smaller elements and
larger cookware should be used for larger elements.

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.
Use of abrasive
cleaning materials.
Scratches from
rough ceramic
glass, or ceramic
coated cookware.
Note: Dishwashing detergents remove this protective coating and
therefore, make the glass ceramic top more susceptible to staining.

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.
