Getting Started
Induction cooktop characteristics Selecting surface cookware
A COOLER COOKTOP - A unique feature of the
Induction Cooktop is whether turned ON or OFF,
the cooktop surface remains cooler than standard
ceramic cooktops.
The Cooking Zones may appear to
be cool while turned ON and after they have been
turned OFF. The glass surface may be HOT from
residual heat transferred from the cookware and
burns may occur.
The cookware used with the Induction Cooktop
should have flat bottoms that make good contact
with the entire surface of the Cooking Zone. Check
for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of
the cookware (See Fig. 2). Be sure to follow all the
recommendations for using cookware.
MAGNETIC DETECTOR - The coil sensor
automatically detects whether the pan is magnetic
and eliminates accidental “turn-ONs.”
PAN SIZE DETECTION - The pan recognition sensor
automatically detects and adapts the Cooking Zones
to the pan sizes in use.
EFFICIENT - Induction cooking heats faster while
using less energy. Induction power levels are quick
to boil and delicate when simmering.
Use the correct cookware type
The magnetic Cooking Zone sensors located below
the cooktop surface require the use of cookware
made with magnetic material in order to start the
heating process on any of the Cooking Zones.
When purchasing pans, look for cookware specifically
identified by the manufacturer for use with induction
cooktops. If you are not sure, use a magnet to test
whether the cookware type will work. If a magnet
sticks to the bottom of the cookware, the material type
is correct for induction cooking (See Fig. 1).
It is recommended to always use heavier high quality
stainless steel cookware on your Induction Cooktop
surface. This will greatly reduce the possibility of
developing scratches on the ceramic surface.
Even quality cookware can scratch the cooktop
surface, especially if cookware is slide over the
ceramic cooktop surface without being lifted up. Over
time sliding ANY type of cookware over the ceramic
cooktop will likely alter the overall appearance of the
cooktop. Eventually the buildup of scratches will make
cleaning the surface difficult and degrade the overall
appearance of the cooktop.
Fig. 1
Fig. 2
Also remember to:
• Use cookware made with the correct material type
for Induction Cooking.
• Use quality cookware with heavier bottoms for
better heat distribution allowing for more even
cooking results.
• The pan size should match the amount of food
being prepared.
• Do not let pans boil dry. This may
cause permanent damage in the form of
breakage, fusion, or marring that can
affect the ceramic cooktop. (This type of
damage is not covered by your warranty).
• Do not use dirty pans with grease buildup. Always
use pans that are easy to clean after cooking.
The Cooking Zones may appear to be cool while
turned ON and after they have been turned OFF.
The glass surface may be HOT from residual heat
transferred from the cookware and burns may
occur.
DO NOT SLIDE Cookware across the cooktop
surface. Doing so may permanently damage the
appearance of the ceramic cooktop.
DO NOT TOUCH HOT COOKWARE or PANS
directly with hands. Always use oven mitts or pot
holders to protect hands from burns.
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply
the recommended cooktop cleaning creme to the
ceramic surface. Buff with a non-abrasive cloth or
pad. This will make cleaning easier when soiled from
cooking. The special cooktop cleaning cream leaves a
protective finish on the glass to help prevent scratches
and abrasions.

Operational noises
The electronics generating the induction fields are
pretty much noiseless but they do produce heat
at high power level. A soft-sounding cooling fan
activates when the unit is running multiple cooking
zones at once or when a cooking zone is set at very
high power settings.
The buzzing sound you could hear from your cooktop
is not coming from the electronics but from the
cookware you are using. Here are some causes of
this noise:
• Most induction-ready cookware are made of several
layers of materials. An encapsulated steel layer is
usually used to harness the induction field and
transform it into heat, which is then transferred to
the other materials by radiant energy. The induction
field will cause the steel layer to vibrate against
the other materials in which it is encapsulated.
This is the most common cause of noise from the
induction process. This buzzing only happens at
the higher power level settings. Note that high
quality cookware manufacturers weld this steel
layer in place which lowers or cancel this noise.
• Light weight cookware may also vibrate.
We recommend using heavy weight quality
cookware.
• Cookware with warped bottoms can vibrate on the
ceramic glass surface at high power settings.
•
The power output of your induction
cooktop is capable of warping an empty pan. Never
use the higher power settings on an empty pan.
Even the highest quality cookware is vulnerable to
warping.
• Riveted handles on cookware can also cause
buzzing sounds from the vibrations.
• Solid cast iron and enamelware cookware should
not emit any noise. Top quality cookware made of
several layers should also be relatively quiet.
Care & Cleaning
Ceramic Glass Cooktop
Cleaning & Maintenance
Cleaning recommendations
for the ceramic glass cooktop
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply
the recommended CookTop® Cleaning Creme to
the ceramic surface. Buff with a non-abrasive cloth
or no-scratch cleaning pad. This will make cleaning
easier when soiled from cooking. The special cooktop
cleaning cream leaves a protective finish on the glass
to help prevent scratches and abrasions.
Before cleaning the cooktop, be sure the controls
are turned to OFF and the cooktop is COOL.
Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to
maintaining your ceramic glass cooktop
DO NOT use a cooktop cleaner on a hot cooktop.
The fumes can be hazardous to your health, and can
chemically damage the ceramic-glass surface.
Any cookware (cast iron, metal, glass, ceramic, etc)
with rough bottoms can mark or scratch the cooktop
surface. Do not slide anything metal or glass
across the cooktop. Do not use your cooktop as a
cutting board or work surface in the kitchen. Do not
cook foods directly on the cooktop surface without a
pan. Do not drop heavy or hard objects on the glass
cooktop, because they may cause it to crack.
For light to moderate soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme
directly to the cooktop. Use a paper towel or use a
non-abrasive plastic type no-scratch pad to clean
the entire cooktop surface. Make sure the cooktop is
cleaned thoroughly, leaving no residue.
For heavy, burned on soil:
Apply a few drops of CookTop® Cleaning Creme
directly to the soiled area. Rub the soiled area using a
non-abrasive plastic type no-scratch pad, applying
pressure as needed. Do not use the pad you use to
clean the cooktop for any other purpose.
If soils remain, carefully scrape soils with a metal
razor blade scraper, holding scraper at a 30 degree
angle to the surface. Remove loosened soils with
cooktop cleaning cream and buff surface clean.

Care & Cleaning
Cleaning recommendations
for the ceramic glass cooktop
IMPORTANT NOTE: Damage to the ceramic glass
cooktop may occur if you use an abrasive type scratch
pad. Only use cleaning products that have been
specifically designed for ceramic glass cooktop.
Plastic or foods with a high sugar content:
These types of soils need be removed immediately if
spilled or melted onto the ceramic cooktop surface.
Permanent damage (such as pitting of the cooktop
surface) may occur if not removed immediately. After
turning the surface elements OFF, use a razor blade
scraper or a metal spatula with a mitt and scrape the
soil from the hot surface (as illustrated). Allow the
cooktop to cool, and use the same method for heavy
or burned on soils.
Do not use the following on the ceramic cooktop
(See Fig. 2):
• Do not use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads,
such as metal and some nylon pads. They may
scratch the cooktop, making it more difficult to
clean.
• Do not use harsh cleaners, such as chlorine bleach,
ammonia or oven cleaners, as they may etch or
discolor the cooktop.
• Do not use dirty sponges, cloths or paper towels,
as they can leave soil or lint on the cooktop which
can burn and cause discoloration.

Before you call
Problem
Solution
Entire cooktop does not
operate
• Cooktop controls are locked. Set the cooktop controls to unlock the
Cooktop (See p. 9 for further instructions).
• Make sure household electrical circuit breaker is ON and that power
is properly supplied to the Cooktop.
• Service wiring not complete. Contact installation agent or dealer.
• Power outage. Check house lights to be sure. Call local electric
company.
Cooktop turns off while
cooking
• Cooktop internal heat sensor has detected high temperatures inside
the appliance. Be sure the appliance vent holes are not blocked.
(Refer to the Installation Instructions supplied with the cooktop
for more detailed cooktop installation information).
• Fluids spilled or object lying on controls area of cooktop. Clean spills
or remove object. Repower cooktop.
• Cooking zone had been used with dry pot at a high power level. Wait
for the cooking zone to cool down.
Cooking zone does not
heat food
• No cookware was placed on the Cooking Zone or the cookware
material type is incorrect for Induction Cooking.
• Cookware bottom not large enough for Cooking Zone.
• Cookware is warped or in poor condition.
• Cookware is not centered on Cooking Zone.
• Cookware resting on cooktop trim or does not rest completely on
cooktop surface.

Cooking zone heats
food too hot or not hot
enough
Poor cooking results
• Incorrect Cooking Zone control setting. Make sure the correct control
is ON for the Cooking Zone being used. Make sure the cooktop is
not locked.
• Lightweight or warped pans were used. Be sure to use good quality
cookware.
• Use only flat bottom, evenly balanced medium or heavyweight
cookware. Heavy and medium weight pans heat evenly. Because
lightweight pans heat unevenly, foods may burn more easily (See
pages 7-8 for further information).
• Adjust Cooking Zone power level setting until the proper amount of
heat is obtained.
• Many factors affect cooking results. Adjust the recipe’s recommended
power levels or cooking times.
• Cookware is too lightweight or warped. Use heavier quality cookware
so foods being prepared may cook more evenly.
