For your safety, the information in this manual must be followed to minimize the risk of fire or
explosion, electric shock, or to prevent property damage, personal injury, or loss of life.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should be followed, including
the following:
Operating Instructions
Safety Instructions
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
■ Use this appliance only for its intended use
as described in this manual.
■ Do not attempt to repair or replace any
part of your cooktop unless it is specifically
recommended in this manual. All other
servicing should be referred to a qualified
technician.
Care and Cleaning
■ Before performing any service, disconnect
the cooktop power supply at the household
distribution panel by removing the fuse or
switching off the circuit breaker.
■ Be sure your appliance is properly installed
and grounded by a qualified technician in
accordance with the provided installation
instructions.
■ Have the installer show you the location of
the circuit breaker or fuse. Mark it for easy
reference.
Troubleshooting Tips
■ Do not leave children alone—children
should not be left alone or unattended
in an area where an appliance is in use.
They should never be allowed to sit or
stand on any part of the appliance.
■ Teach children not to play with the
controls or any other part of the cooktop.
■ Do not allow anyone to climb, stand or
hang on the cooktop.
Consumer Support
■
CAUTION:
Items of interest to
children should not be stored in cabinets
above a cooktop—children climbing on
the cooktop to reach items could be
seriously injured.
■ Always keep combustible wall coverings,
curtains or drapes a safe distance from
your cooktop.
2
■ Always keep dishtowels, dish cloths, pot
holders and other linens a safe distance
away from your cooktop.
■ Always keep wooden and plastic utensils
and canned food a safe distance away from
your cooktop. They may become hot and
could cause burns.
■ Never wear loose-fitting or hanging
garments while using the appliance.
Flammable material could be ignited if
brought in contact with hot surface units
and may cause severe burns.
■ Use only dry pot holders—moist or damp
pot holders on hot surfaces may result in
burns from steam. Do not let pot holders
touch hot surface units. Do not use a towel
or other bulky cloth. Such cloths can catch
fire on a hot surface unit.
■ For your safety, never use your appliance
for warming or heating the room.
■ Do not use water on grease fires. Never
pick up a flaming pan. Turn the controls
off. Smother a flaming pan on a surface
unit by covering the pan completely with
a well-fitting lid, cookie sheet or flat tray.
Use a multi-purpose dry chemical or
foam-type extinguisher.
■ Flaming grease outside a pan can be
put out by covering with baking soda or,
if available, by using a multi-purpose dry
chemical or foam-type fire extinguisher.
■ When preparing flaming foods under the
hood, turn the fan on.
■ Do not let cooking grease or other
flammable materials accumulate on
the cooktop.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
■ Potentially hot surfaces include the
cooktop and areas facing the cooktop.
■ To minimize the possibility of burns,
ignition of flammable materials and
spillage, the handle of a container
should be turned toward the center
of the cooktop without extending over
any nearby surface units.
■ Use little fat for effective shallow or
deep-fat frying. Filling the pan too full
of fat can cause spillovers when food is
added.
■ If a combination of oils or fats will be used
in frying, stir together before heating, or as
fats melt slowly.
■ Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.
■ Use a deep fat thermometer whenever
possible to prevent overheating fat beyond
the smoking point.
■ Never try to move a pan of hot fat,
especially a deep fat fryer. Wait until
the fat is cool.
■ Do not store flammable materials near
the cooktop.
■ Use proper pan size—select cookware
having flat bottoms large enough to cover
the surface unit heating element. The use
of undersized cookware will expose a
portion of the surface unit to direct
contact and may result in ignition of
clothing. Proper relationship of cookware
to surface unit will also improve efficiency.
■ Keep the hood and grease filters clean
to maintain good venting and to avoid
grease fires.
■ Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic,
earthenware or other glazed containers are
suitable for cooktop cooking; others may
break because of the sudden change in
temperature.
■ Keep an eye on foods being fried at high
or medium-high heat settings.
■ Do not leave paper products, cooking
utensils or food on the cooktop when
not in use.
■ Keep cooktop clean and free of
accumulation of grease or spillovers
which may ignite.
■ Never heat unopened food containers.
Pressure buildup may make container
burst and cause injury.
■ Never leave jars or cans of fat drippings
on or near your cooktop.
Consumer Support
■ Foods for frying should be as dry as
possible. Frost on frozen foods or moisture
on fresh foods can cause hot fat to bubble
up and over the sides of the pan.
■ Clean only parts listed in this Owner’s
Manual.
Troubleshooting Tips
■ Never leave surface units unattended at
high heat settings. Boilovers cause smoking
and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
■ Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any
appliance.
Care and Cleaning
■ Always turn the surface unit control to off
before removing the cookware.
Operating Instructions
■ Do not touch surface units. These surfaces
may be hot enough to burn even though
they are dark in color. During and after
use, do not touch, or let clothing or other
flammable materials contact the surface
units or areas nearby the surface units;
allow sufficient time for cooling first.
Safety Instructions
www.GEAppliances.com
■ Never use your appliance for warming or
heating the room.
COOK MEAT AND POULTRY THOROUGHLY…
Cook meat and poultry thoroughly—meat to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 160°F and poultry
to at least an INTERNAL temperature of 180°F. Cooking to these temperatures usually protects against
foodborne illness.

Every radiant surface unit has a
temperature limiter.
The temperature limiter may cycle the
units off for a time if:
The temperature limiter protects the
glass cooktop from getting too hot.
■ The cooktop is on while cooking.
■ The pan boils dry.
■ The pan bottom is not flat.
■ The pan is off-center.
■ There is no pan on the unit.

The following information will help you choose cookware which will give good performance on glass cooktops.
Porcelain Enamel-Covered Cast Iron:
recommended
recommended
As long as the cookware is covered
completely with porcelain enamel, this
cookware is recommended. Caution is
recommended for cast-iron cookware
that is not completely covered with
smooth porcelain enamel, since it may
scratch the glass ceramic cooktop.
Aluminum:
Check pans for flat bottoms by
using a straight edge.
heavyweight recommended
Good conductivity. Aluminum residues
sometimes appear as scratches on the
cooktop but can be removed if cleaned
immediately. Because of its low melting
point, thin weight aluminum should not
be used.
Copper Bottom:
Glass-Ceramic:

Poor performance. May scratch the
surface.
Stoneware:
Use pans that match the diameter of the
surface unit. Cooking performance will
not be as good if the cookware is either
smaller or larger than the surface unit.
■ Some special cooking procedures
require specific cookware such as
pressure cookers, deep fat fryers, etc.
All cookware must have flat bottoms
and be the correct size.
Troubleshooting Tips
usable, but not recommended
Poor performance. May scratch the
surface.
Care and Cleaning
recommended
Copper may leave residues which can
appear as scratches. The residues can
be removed, as long as the cooktop is
cleaned immediately. However, do not let
these pots boil dry. Overheated metal can
bond to glass cooktops. An overheated
copper-bottom pot will leave a residue
that will permanently stain the cooktop
if not removed immediately.
Operating Instructions
Stainless Steel:
Pans with rounded, curved, ridged
or warped bottoms are not
recommended.
For Best Results
■ Place only dry pans on the surface
units. Do not place lids on the surface
units, particularly wet lids.
Do not place wet pans
on the glass cooktop.
■ We recommend that you use only a
flat-bottomed wok. They are available
at your local retail store. The bottom
of the wok should have the same
diameter as the surface unit to ensure
proper contact.
Consumer Support
Do not use woks with support
rings on the glass cooktop.
■ Do not use woks that have support
rings. This type of wok will not heat on
glass surface units.

Safety Instructions
Observe the Following Points in Canning
Right!
Wrong!
Note: Flat-bottomed canners are
required for glass cooktops.
Care and Cleaning
Operating Instructions
Selecting types of cookware.
Pots that extend beyond 1″ of the
surface unit’s circle are not
recommended for most surface
cooking. However, when canning with
water-bath or pressure canner, largerdiameter pots may be used. This is
because boiling water temperatures
(even under pressure) are not harmful
to the cooktop surfaces surrounding the
surface units.
HOWEVER, DO NOT USE LARGEDIAMETER CANNERS OR OTHER
LARGE-DIAMETER POTS FOR
FRYING OR BOILING FOODS OTHER
THAN WATER. Most syrup or sauce
mixtures—and all types of frying—cook
at temperatures much higher than
boiling water. Such temperatures could
eventually harm the glass cooktop
surfaces.
Be sure the canner fits over the
center of the surface unit. If your
cooktop or its location does not
allow the canner to be centered
on the surface unit, use smaller
diameter pots for good canning
results.
Troubleshooting Tips
Flat-bottomed canners must be
used. Do not use canners with
flanged or rippled bottoms (often
found in enamelware) because
they don’t make enough contact
with the surface units and take a
long time to boil water.
Consumer Support
When canning, use recipes and
procedures from reputable sources.
Reliable recipes and procedures
are available from the
manufacturer of your canner;
manufacturers of glass jars for
canning, such as Ball and Kerr
brand; and the United States
Department of Agriculture
Extension Service.
8
Remember that canning is a
process that generates large
amounts of steam. To avoid burns
from steam or heat, be careful
when canning.
NOTE: If your house has low voltage,
canning may take longer than expected,
even though directions have been carefully
followed. The process time will be
shortened by:
(1) using a pressure canner, and
( 2) starting with HOT tap water for fastest
heating of large quantities of water.
CAUTION:
■ Safe canning requires that harmful
microorganisms are destroyed and that
the jars are sealed completely. When
canning foods in a water-bath canner,
a gentle but steady boil must be
maintained for the required time. When
canning foods in a pressure canner, the
pressure must be maintained for the
required time.
■ After you have adjusted the controls,
it is very important to make sure the
prescribed boil or pressure levels are
maintained for the required time.
■ Since you must make sure to process the
canning jars for the prescribed time, with
no interruption in processing time, do not
can on any cooktop surface unit if your
canner is not flat.
