IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
• DO NOT TOUCH SURFACE BURNERS, GRATES, OR
AREAS NEAR THESE BURNERS. Surface burners may
be hot even though the ﬂ ames are not visible. Areas
near surface burners may become hot enough to cause
burns. During and after use, do not touch or let clothing
or other ﬂ ammable materials touch these areas until
they have had sufﬁ cient time to cool. Among these areas
are the cooktop and the surfaces facing the cooktop.
• Wear Proper Apparel—Loose-ﬁ tting or hanging
garments should never be worn while using the
appliance. Do not let clothing or other ﬂ ammable
materials contact hot surfaces.
NEVER use this appliance as a space heater to
heat or warm the room. Doing so may result in
carbon monoxide poisoning.
• Do Not Use Water or Flour on Grease Fires—
Smother the ﬁ re with a pan lid, or use baking
soda, a dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
• When heating fat or grease, watch it closely. Fat
or grease may catch ﬁ re if allowed to become too hot.
• Use Only Dry Pot holders—Moist or damp pot
holders on hot surfaces may result in burns from
steam. Do not let the pot holders touch the ﬂ ame
or burners. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth
instead of a pot holder.
• Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers—
Buildup of pressure may cause container to burst
and result in injury.
• Know which knob controls each surface burner.
Always turn the knob to the LITE position when igniting
the burners. Visually check that the burner has lit. Then
adjust the ﬂ ame so it does not extend beyond the edge
of the utensil.
Use Proper Flame Size—Adjust ﬂ ame size so it
does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil.
The use of undersized utensils will expose a
portion of the burner flame to direct contact
and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper
relationship of utensil to ﬂ ame will also improve
• Use proper pan size—This appliance is equipped
with one or more surface burners of different sizes.
Select utensils having ﬂ at bottom large enough to cover
the surface burner. The use of undersized utensils
will expose a portion of the surface burner to direct
contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper
relationship of utensil to the surface burner will also
improve efﬁ ciency.
Do not use stove top grills on your sealed gas
burners. If you use a stove top grill on a sealed
gas burner, it will cause incomplete combustion
and can result in exposure to carbon monoxide
levels above allowable current standards. This
can be hazardous to your health.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and
Not Extend Over Adjacent Surface Burners—To
reduce the risk of burns, ignition of ﬂ ammable
materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact
with the utensil, the handle of the utensil should be
positioned so that it is turned inward, and does not
extend over adjacent surface burners.
• Never Leave Surface Burners Unattended at High
Heat Settings—Boilovers cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry
• Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line
surface burner pans. Protective liners or aluminum
foil may interfere with heat and air distribution, and
combustion. Damage to the cooktop or personal injury
• Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
utensils are suitable for cooktop service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the
manufacturer's recommendations for cooktop use.
• Do Not Use Decorative Surface Burner Covers. If
a burner is accidentally turned on, the decorative cover
will become hot and possibly melt. You will not be able
to see that the burner is on. Burns will occur if the
hot covers are touched. Damage may also be done to
the cooktop or burners because the covers may cause
overheating. Air will be blocked from the burner and
cause combustion problems.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic
Enforcement Act requires the Governor of California
to publish a list of substances known to the state to
cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm,
and requires businesses to warn customers of potential
exposure to such substances.
