Surface Cooking

Use Proper Cookware
Cookware should have fl at bottoms that
make good contact with
the entire surface heating
element. Check for fl atness
by rotating a ruler across
the bottom of the cookware
(See Figure 1). Be sure to
follow the recommendations
for using cookware as
shown in Figure 2.
Note: The size and type of cookware used will
infl uence the setting needed for best cooking
Note: Always use a utensil for its intended
purpose. Follow manufacturer's instructions.
Some utensils were not made to be used in the
oven or on the cooktop.

Cookware bottoms must be in direct
contact with the grates.
