BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS

LOCATIONS OF THE GAS SURFACE
BURNERS
Your cooktop is equipped with gas surface burners with
different BTU ratings. The ability to heat food quicker and
in larger volumes increases as the burner size increases.
The small
SIMMER burner is best used for
simmering delicate sauces, etc. This burner is located
at the right rear burner position on the cooktop.
The
REGULAR burners can be used for most surface
cooking needs. These burners are located at the left
rear and left front positions.
The
POWER burner is best used when preparing
larger quantities of food and it quickly bring liquids
up to a rolling boil.
The large
POWERPLUS burner is best used for
bringing large quantities of liquid rapidly up to
temperature or when preparing larger quantities of
food.
Regardless of size, always select cookware that is suitable
for the amount and type of food being prepared. Select a
burner and fl ame size appropriate to the pan. Never allow
fl ames to extend beyond the outer edge of the pan.
