to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let
clothing or other flammable materials touch these areas
until they have had sufficient time to cool. Among these
areas are the cooktop, surfaces facing the cooktop, the
oven vent openings and surfaces near these openings,
oven door and window.
