• Use Proper Pan Size. This appliance is equipped with one
or more COOKING ZONES of different sizes. Select
utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the
Cooking Zones. The pan detection sensors will not allow the
affected Cooking Zone to operate without a pan present.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Should
Not Extend Over Adjacent Cooking Zones. To reduce
the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and
spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil.
• Never Leave Prepared Food on the Cooking Zones
Unattended. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may
melt or become damaged.
• Protective Liners. Do not use aluminum foil to line any
part of the cooktop. Only use aluminum foil as
recommended after the cooking process, if used as a cover
to be placed over the food. Any other use of aluminum foil
may result in the risk of electric shock, fire or short circuit.
• Glazed Cooking Utensils. Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
utensils are suitable for range top service without breaking
due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the
manufacturer's recommendations for cooktop use.
• Ventilating hood. The ventilating hood above your cooking
surface should be cleaned frequently, so the grease from
cooking vapors does not accumulate on the hood or filter.
