To Operate Dual Radiant Surface Elements (some models)
Symbols on the backguard are used to indicate which coil of the Dual Radiant
element will heat. The
indicates both inner and outer coils will heat (See Figs. 1 & 2 and Suggested
Radiant Surface Element Settings Table on previous page). You may switch
from either coil setting at any time during cooking. Push in and turn the control
knob in either direction to the desired setting as instructed above. Note: Areas
that heat are shown in black.
Radiant surface elements may appear to have cooled after they
have been turned off. The glass surface may still be hot and burns may occur
if the glass surface is touched before it has cooled sufficiently.
Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers,
spoon holders or plastic wrappings on top of the range 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.
Setting the Warming Zone (some models)
The purpose of the Warming Zone is to keep hot cooked foods at serving temperature. Always start with hot food. It is not
recommended to heat cold food on the Warming Zone.
All food placed on the Warming Zone should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil to maintain quality. For best results, when
warming pastries or breads, the cover should have an opening to allow moisture to escape. Do not use plastic wrap to cover
food. Plastic may melt onto the surface and be very difficult to clean.
Use only dishware, utensils and cookware recommended for oven and cooktop use on the Warming Zone.
Note: Use the Warming Zone to keep cooked foods hot such as; vegetables, gravies, casseroles, soups, stews, breads,
pastries and oven-safe dinner plates.
