Using the simmer plate (accessory not included)
The simmer plate (Figure 1) is intended to
diffuse lower temperature of the burner to help
cooking delicate aliment such as chocolate, milk,
bechamel, etc. It can also be use for cooking
sauce during long period. With the grate in
position over the burner, set the simmer plate
on top of the grate positioning the notches in the
simmer plate over the grate fingers (See Figure
2) and then place the utensil on the simmer plate.
Always place the simmer plate on the grate before to turn on the burner.
Always use potholders to remove the simmer plate from the grate. Allow the simmer plate to cool before removing.
Do not set hot simmer plate on surfaces that cannot withstand high heat; such as countertops.
Be sure the simmer plate is positioned correctly and stable before use to prevent hot spills and possible burns.
