BEFORE SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Air circulation in the oven
For best baking results allow 2-4" (5-10 cm) around the
cookware for proper air circulation and be sure pans and
cookware do not touch each other, the oven door, sides or
back of the oven cavity. Hot air must be able to circulate
around the pans and cookware in the oven for even heat to
reach around the food.
Baking layer cakes with 1 or 2 oven racks
For best results when baking cakes using 2 oven racks,
place cookware on rack positions 2 & 5. For best results
when using a single oven flat rack, place cookware on rack
positions 2, 3 or 4.
BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Benefits of induction surface cooking
Fast and efficient - The induction cooking zones heat
faster while using less energy. Induction power levels are
quick to boil and efficient when simmering.
A cooler cooktop - A unique feature of the induction
cooking zones are whether turned on or off, the cooking
zones remain cooler than radiant type elements. Virtually
no wasted heat is produced since the heat begins with the
presence of cookware.
Easy cleanups - The cooler cooking zone makes cleanups
easier. Spills resist sticking or burning so they wipe up
Magnetic detector - The cooking zone has a sensor that
automatically detects whether cookware is magnetic. This
will reduce accidental "turn-ons" and help avoid setting
utensils on hot elements like spatulas or spoons.
Pan size detection - The pan size recognition sensor
automatically detects and adapts the induction cooking
zones to the pan sizes in use for consistent, more even
More responsive - The induction cooking zones are more
responsive than their electric or gas counterparts because
only the pan heats. This type of cooking heats easier and
will be just as responsive when reducing to a simmer.
About the induction cooktop
Your cooktop is equipped with four differently sized
induction cooking zones for your convenience.
Induction cooking directly heats the pan; heating will only
begin when cookware is properly placed on the cooking
Remember that induction surface cooking will initially heat
the cooking utensil very quickly.
