the bottom of cookware. Be sure to
follow the recommendations for using
cookware has shown in figure aside.
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.

above recommended cookware requirements.
Note: The size and type of cookware used will influence the setting needed for best cooking results.
