ABOUT THE CERAMIC GLASS COOKTOP

The ceramic cooktop has radiant surface elements located below the
surface of the glass. The design of the ceramic cooktop outlines the
area of the surface element underneath. Make sure the diameter of the
pan matches the diameter of the element outline on the cooktop (See
Figure).
Heat is transferred up through the surface of the cooktop to the
cookware. Only flat-bottom cookware should be used. The type and
size of cookware, the number of surface elements in use and their
settings, are all factors that will affect the amount of heat that will
spread to areas beyond the surface elements. The areas surrounding
the elements may become hot enough to cause burns.

ABOUT THE RADIANT SURFACE ELEMENTS

The element temperature rises gradually and evenly. As the temperature rises, the element
will glow red. To maintain the selected setting, the element will cycle on and off. The heating
element retains enough heat to provide a uniform and consistent heat during the off cycle.
For efficient cooking, turn off the element several minutes before cooking is complete. This
will allow residual heat to complete the cooking process.

Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the element to cycle on and off, even at the HI
setting. This helps to prevent damage to the ceramic glass cooktop. Cycling at the HI
setting is normal and can also occur if the cookware is too small for the radiant element or
if the cookware bottom is not flat (Refer to page 12 for using correct cookware instructions
with the cooktop).
Please read detailed instructions for ceramic glass cooktop cleaning in the General Care
& Cleaning section and Solutions to Common Problems section of this Use and Care
Guide.
