cause hot fat to bubble up and over the sides of
the pan.
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.
Keep the hood and grease filters clean to maintain
good venting and to avoid grease fires.
Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in
the vicinity of this or any appliance.
Clean only parts listed in this Owner’s Manual.
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.
Never use your appliance for warming or heating
the room.

 Do not touch surface elements. 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 elements or areas nearby the
surface elements; allow sufficient time for cooling
first.
 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 elements.
 Always turn the surface element control to off
before removing the cookware.
 Use proper pan size—select cookware having flat
bottoms large enough to cover the surface heating
element. The use of undersized cookware will
expose a portion of the surface element to direct
contact and may result in ignition of clothing.
Proper relationship of cookware to surface
element will also improve efficiency.
 Never leave surface elements unattended at high
heat settings. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that may catch on fire.
 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.
 Foods for frying should be as dry as possible. Frost
on frozen foods or moisture on fresh foods can

This product must be installed in accordance with national, state and local electric codes. The following
table provides the correct voltage, amperage and frequency that must be supplied to the cooktop.
Step #3 - Countertop Preparation
Please read this section prior to making cutout for the cooktop. It is important to plan ahead for installation
of the cooktop, keeping the following dimensions in mind (please refer to Fig. 2).
A. 36 inches is minimum height of countertop
above floor
B. 13 inches maximum depth of overhead
C. 30 inches minimum clearance between the top
of the cooking surface and the bottom of an
unprotected wood or metal cabinet or 24 inch
minimum clearance when the bottom of wood
or metal cabinet is protected by not less than
¼-inch-thick flame retardant millboard covered
with not less than No. 28 MSG sheet steel,
0.015-inch-thick stainless steel, 0.024-inchthick aluminum or 0.020-inch-thick copper.
D. The minimum flat countertop surface that the
cooktop will rest upon must be equal to or
greater than the overall cooktop dimensions
(refer to the following pages for overall
cooktop dimensions).
E. 2-inch minimum from backsplash of
countertop to edge of glass (refer to the
following pages for overall cooktop
dimensions).

To eliminate the risk of burns by reaching over heated
surface units, cabinet storage space located above surface units should be
avoided. If cabinet storage is necessary, the risk can be reduced by installing a
range hood that projects horizontally a minimum of 5” beyond the bottom of the
cabinets.
www.DENALIplus.com
Do not install closer than ½ inch (12 mm) from any adjacent surface!
Before making the countertop cutout, check for clearance. Check to see if the cooktop will clear
the front and side walls of the base cabinet. It is also important to provide enough ventilation.
Adequate ventilation of the space below the countertop must be provided to ensure proper
operation of the cooktop. Heat transferred from the cooktop bottom pan during operation will
overheat an improperly ventilated area.
Fig. 3
Allow a 2” minimum clearance between the bottom of the metal pan of the cooktop and any
combustible surface located below, i.e.: the upper edge of a drawer installed below the cooktop
(refer to Fig. 3). Failure to provide proper clearances and ventilation may result in a fire hazard.

Step #4 - Installing the Cooktop
1. Strips of foam sealant have already been installed around the outer edge of the underside of
the cooktop. This special sealant prevents liquid from infiltrating into the cabinet. Additionally,
the mounted sealant helps prevent damage to the countertop if the cooktop should ever need to
be removed for servicing.
2. Attach the mounting brackets supplied with the DENALI+ cooktop (refer to Figs. 6-7-8) to the
inside bottom surface of the cutout. The brackets are to be mounted on opposing sides. Center
the bracket in the opening, flush with the countertop and secure with long self-tapping screws
(included). Position the cooktop in the cutout opening and press firmly on all sides to seal the
frame into the sealant strips. Secure the cooktop to the brackets from underneath with the small
sheet metal screws that are supplied. There are two mounting brackets for the single and double

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
READ SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE OPERATING YOUR APPLIANCE.
The cooking surface areas of your glass ceramic cooktop are identified by permanent patterns in
the cooktop. The appliance is easy to maintain and easy to clean. Keeping the cooktop at top
performance levels can be achieved by following the simple guidelines for use and cleaning below.
Cookware
Be certain that both the cooktop surface and the bottom of your pots and pans are clean and dry
before use. By doing so, you will help prevent scratches and stains.
Heating Elements
This cooktop contains radiant heating elements. The radiant elements will “light up” about 4-5
seconds after being turned on. The special design of these elements directs the heat up through
the ceramic glass, providing efficient cooking. Temperature limiters are included in each element
to ensure that the safe operating temperature of the ceramic glass top is not exceeded. The
12
Use cookware of the correct diameter only. The base of the pot or pan should be about as wide as
the cooking zone on which it is used – not much wider or much narrower. By using utensils with
the correct diameter, you should achieve maximum heating efficiency in the shortest possible
time.
Page
The cookware should have a flat bottom. Although glass and other types of cookware can be
used, metal cookware with thick, smooth, flat bottoms will generally conduct the heat well.
Aluminum and stainless steel cookware usually works best. Avoid cookware with shaped and
rounded bottoms as well as utensils that warp when heated.
www.DENALIplus.com
Chances are that your existing cookware will work just fine with your glass ceramic cooktop.
Cooking on a glass ceramic cooktop does not require special pots or pans. Since cookware plays
an important role in cooking efficiency and convenience, keep in mind the following information
when selecting your cookware.
temperature limiter will cycle the radiant element on and off to prevent exceeding the maximum
safe surface temperature.
Controls & Indicators
Each of the cooking area controls has an infinite selection of heat settings. The control settings
begin at low and increase heat output by cycling the heating elements between OFF and full
power as you turn the knob clockwise. The heating elements will stay at full power for longer
periods and at zero power for shorter periods as you turn the knob clockwise, thus increasing the
heat output.
There are a series of lights located adjacent to the control knob(s) that provide an indication of
heating element operation and hot surfaces. When a control is in the ON position, a red light is lit
indicating which burner is on, and hot surface light glows indicating that some part of the glass
cooktop surface is too warm too touch or place articles upon. Do not place articles other than
cookware on the cooking surface while this light is glowing.
CLEANING AND CARE
To help ensure that your cooktop stays clean, follow these easy-care tips:
• Clean the cooktop before you use it for the first time. A thorough cleaning with a recommended
cooktop cleaner will provide a coating on the cooktop prior to its first use.
• Avoid abrasive scouring cleaners of any kind. Also avoid using plastic, nylon or metal cleaning
pads. They may scratch or melt onto the cooktop.
• Avoid chemical cleaners such as chlorine bleach, ammonia, hydrofluoric acid or chemical oven
cleaners. They can etch or discolor the surface.
• Do not let anything that melts – plastic, aluminum foil, sugar, etc., come into contact with the
cooktop surface when it is hot. Should something melt onto the surface, immediately move it to a
cool area of the cooktop with a razor blade scraper and then remove it from the cooktop as soon
as possible.
13
• Do not use a dish towel or sponge to wipe off the cooktop. A film may be left by the detergent
and may cause discoloration of the cooktop surface.
Page
• Clean the cooktop with a paper towel or a clean, soft cloth and a recommended cleaner. After
cleaning, always wipe the cooktop with a clean, damp cloth to avoid cooked-on cleaner residue.
Wipe the cooktop dry.
www.DENALIplus.com
• Always remove food spills, grease spatters and metal rub-off from cookware. A razor blade
scraper or the equivalent works well to remove spillovers.
