free from stains. For more information, see "General Cleaning"
Do not store jars or cans above the cooktop. Dropping a

Do not allow objects that could melt, such as plastic or
aluminum foil, to touch any part of the entire cooktop.
Make sure the bottoms of pots and pans are clean and dry
before using them. Residue and water can leave deposits
when heated.

Home Canning

When canning for long periods, alternate the use of surface
cooking areas, elements or surface burners between batches.
This allows time for the most recently used areas to cool.
Center the canner on the grate or largest surface cooking
area or element. Canners should not extend more than 1 in.
(2.5 cm) outside the cooking area.
Do not place canner on two surface cooking areas, elements
or surface burners at the same time.
For more information, contact your local U.S. Government
Agricultural Department Extension Office. In Canada, contact
Agriculture Canada. Companies that manufacture home
canning products can also offer assistance.
