IMPORTANT: Do not leave empty cookware on a hot surface
cooking area, element or surface burner.
Ideal cookware should have a flat bottom, straight sides and a well-
fitting lid, and the material should be of medium-to-heavy
thickness.
Rough finishes may scratch the cooktop or grates. Aluminum and
copper may be used as a core or base in cookware.
Cookware material is a factor in how quickly and evenly heat is
transferred, which affects cooking results.
Cookware with nonstick surfaces should not be used under the
broiler.
Check for flatness by placing the straight edge of a ruler across the
bottom of the cookware. While you rotate the ruler, no space or
light should be visible between it and the cookware.
Use the following chart as a guide for cookware material
characteristics.

COOKWARE

CHARACTERISTICS
Aluminum
Heats quickly and evenly.
Suitable for all types of cooking.
Medium or heavy thickness is best for
most cooking tasks.
Cast iron
Heats slowly and evenly.
Good for browning and frying.
Maintains heat for slow cooking.
When canning for long periods, alternate the use of surface
burners between batches. This allows time for the most recently
used areas to cool.
Center the canner on the grate above the burner.
The normal operation of the range will include several noises that
may be heard each time the Bake or Broil burners ignite during the
cooking cycle:
gas valves may make a "popping" sound when opening or
closing
igniters will "click" several times until a flame is sensed
a "poof" sound is heard when a Bake or Broil burner ignites

For best results, the cookware should be centered above the
burner with the bottom sitting level on the grate. The flame should
be adjusted so that it does not extend up the sides of the pan.

Home Canning

Do not place canner on 2 surface burners at the same time.
For more information, contact your local agricultural extension
office, or refer to published home canning guides. Companies
that manufacture home canning products can also offer
assistance.

OVEN USE

Odors and smoke are normal when the oven is used the first few
times, or when it is heavily soiled.
IMPORTANT: The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to the
fumes given off. Exposure to the fumes may result in death to
certain birds. Always move birds to another closed and well-
ventilated room.
CHARACTERISTICS
Follow manufacturer's instructions.
Heats slowly, but unevenly.
Ideal results on low to medium heat
settings.
Heats very quickly and evenly.
May leave copper residues, which may
be diminished if cleaned immediately
after cooking
Follow manufacturer's instructions.
Use on low heat settings.
See stainless steel or cast iron.
Heats quickly, but unevenly.
A core or base of aluminum or copper on
