protection against shock hazard and should be plugged directly into a properly
grounded receptacle. DO NOT cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug.
For personal safety, this cooktop must be properly grounded. For maximum
safety, the plug must be plugged into a 120V—60 Hz. outlet that is correctly
polarized and properly grounded.
If a two-prong wall receptacle is the only available outlet, it is the personal
responsibility of the consumer to have it replaced with a properly grounded three-
prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician.

This appliance can be used with Natural Gas and Propane Gas. It is shipped from
the factory for use with natural gas.
If you wish to convert your cooktop for use with propane gas, use the supplied
fixed orifices located in the package containing the Installation Instructions, in a
bag marked, "FOR LP/PROPANE GAS CONVERSION." Follow instructions
packaged with the orifices.
The conversion must be performed by a qualified service technician in accordance
with the manufacturer's instructions and all codes and requirements of the
authority having jurisdiction. Failure to follow instructions could result in serious
injury or property damage. The qualified agency performing this work assumes
responsibility for the conversion.
For most cooking, start on the highest control setting and then turn to a lower
one to complete the process. Use the chart below as a guide for determining
proper flame size for various types of cooking. The size and type of utensil used
and the amount of food being cooked will influence the setting needed for
cooking.
For deep fat frying, use a thermometer and adjust the surface control knob
accordingly. If the fat is too cool, the food will absorb the fat and be greasy. If
the fat is too hot, the food will brown so quickly that the center will be
undercooked. Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much food at once as the food
will neither brown nor cook properly.
