WARNING
Fire Hazard
Turn off all controls when done cooking.
Failure to do so can result in death or fire.
REMEMBER: When range is in use or (on some models)
during the Self-Cleaning cycle, the entire cooktop area may
become hot.
IMPORTANT: When cooktop is in use, the Self-Cleaning cycle
will be disabled. When the Self-Cleaning cycle is in use, the
cooktop will be locked.
Ceramic Glass (on some models)
The surface cooking area will glow red when an element is ON.
Some parts of the surface cooking area may not glow red when
an element is on. This is normal operation. It will also randomly
cycle off and back on again, even while on High, to keep the
cooktop from extreme temperatures.
It is normal for the surface of light colored ceramic glass to
appear to change color when surface cooking areas are hot.
As the glass cools, it will return to its original color.
Clean the cooktop after each use to help avoid scratches,
pitting, abrasions and to condition the glass surface. Ceramic
glass cooktop cleaner and a cooktop scraper are also
recommended for stubborn soils. Do not use abrasive cleaners,
cleaning pads, or harsh chemicals for cleaning. The Cooktop
Care Kit Part Number 31605 contains all of the items needed to
clean and condition your ceramic glass cooktop. Refer to the
"Range Care" section for additional information.
IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the cooktop
surface and to make soils easier to remove, clean the cooktop
after each use to remove all soils.
Avoid storing jars or cans above the cooktop. Dropping
a heavy or hard object onto the cooktop could crack the
cooktop.
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not leave a hot lid on
the cooktop. As the cooktop cools, air can become trapped
between the lid and the cooktop, and the ceramic glass
could break when the lid is removed.
For foods containing sugar in any form, clean up all spills
and soils as soon as possible. Allow the cooktop to cool
down slightly. Then, while wearing oven mitts, remove the
spills using a scraper while the surface is still warm. If sugary
spills are allowed to cool down, they can adhere to the
cooktop and can cause pitting and permanent marks.

COOKTOP USE

To avoid scratches, do not slide cookware or bakeware
across the cooktop. Aluminum or copper bottoms and rough
finishes on cookware or bakeware could leave scratches or
marks on the cooktop.
Do not cook popcorn in prepackaged aluminum containers
on the cooktop. They could leave aluminum marks that
cannot be removed completely.
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not allow objects that
could melt, such as plastic or aluminum foil, to touch any
part of the entire cooktop.
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not use the cooktop as
a cutting board.
Use cookware about the same size as the surface cooking
area. Cookware should not extend more than
outside the area.
Use flat-bottomed cookware for best heat conduction and
energy efficiency. Cookware with rounded, warped, ribbed,
or dented bottoms could cause uneven heating and poor
cooking results.
Determine flatness by placing the straight edge of a ruler
across the bottom of the cookware. While you rotate the
ruler, no space or light should be visible between it and the
cookware.
Cookware designed with slightly indented bottoms or small
expansion channels can be used.
Make sure the bottoms of pots and pans are clean and dry
before using them. Residue and water can leave deposits
when heated.
To avoid damage to the cooktop, do not cook foods directly
on the cooktop.
Ceramic Glass Cooktop Cleaning (on some models)
Clean the cooktop after each use to help avoid scratches,
pitting, abrasions and to condition the glass surface. Ceramic
glass cooktop cleaner and a cooktop scraper are also
recommended for stubborn soils. Do not use abrasive cleaners,
cleaning pads, or harsh chemicals for cleaning. The Cooktop
Care Kit Part Number 31605 contains all of the items needed to
clean and condition your ceramic glass cooktop. Refer to the
"Range Care" section for additional information.
IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the cooktop
surface and to make soils easier to remove, clean the cooktop
after each use to remove all soils.
