Operating the Single Induction

Surface Elements

The cooktop is equipped with 3 (or 4) single induction
surface elements: the RIGHT FRONT, CENTER and REAR
positions (Figure 1 and 2).
To Operate the Induction Surface
1. Place the correctly sized cookware of the proper
material on the induction surface element.
2. Push in and turn the surface control knob in either
direction to the desired setting (Figure 3).
Note: Turning the knob to Hi from Off will activate the
Power Boost feature. The Power Boost feature is used
to bring large quantities of water or food to cooking
temperature at the fastest speed possible. The Power
Boost feature will give you up to 139% power output
for a set amount of time (approx. 10 min). The
increased power output will vary per zone.
3. Turn the knob to adjust the setting if desired. Start
most cooking operations on a higher setting and then
turn to a lower setting to finish cooking. Each surface
element provides a constant amount of heat at each
4. When cooking has completed, turn the surface
control knob to OFF before removing the cookware.
The surface "Element On" indicator light will glow
when one or more induction elements are turned on.
A quick glance at this indicator light when cooking
is finished is an easy check to be sure all surface
induction elements are turned off.
See Recommended Surface Cooking Settings table on
page 10.
Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper
shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on
cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or
ignite. Potholders, towels or wooden spoons could catch
fire if placed too close to the surface elements.
Do not allow aluminum foil, or ANY material that
can melt to make contact with the ceramic glass
cooktop. If these items melt on the cooktop they will
damage the ceramic cooktop.
The glass cooktop may appear to have cooled after
the elements have been turned OFF. The induction
elements do not heat directly the cooktop but heat will
be transferred from the cookware to the glass cooktop.
HE (Hot Element) message will turn ON and will continue
to glow until the glass cooktop has cooled down to a
moderate level. The glass surface may still be hot and
burns may occur if the glass surface is touched before the
indicator light has turned OFF. The message may remain
on even though the controls are turned OFF.
