Be sure to read and observe all the following points when
home canning with your appliance. Check with the USDA
(United States Department of Agriculture) website and be
sure to read all the information they have available as well
as follow their recommendations for home canning
• Use only quality flat bottom canners when home canning.
Use a straight-edge to check canner bottom (see
"Cookware material types" in the Before setting
surface controls section).
• Use only a completely
flat bottom canner with no
ridges that radiate from the bottom center when home
canning using a ceramic cooktop.
= Hake sure the diameter
of the canner does not
exceed I inch beyond the surface element
markings or burner, It is recommended to use smaller
diameter canners on electric coil and ceramic glass
• Start with hot tap water to bring water to boil more
• Use the highest heat seating when first bringing the water
to a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to lowest
possible setting to maintain that boil.
Radiant surface elements may appear to have cooled
after they have been turned off. The glass surface
still be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is
touched before it has cooled sufficiently.
Do not place flammable
items such as plastic 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 allowaluminum
foil, orANY material that can
melt to ma ke contact with the ceramic glass cooktop,
If these items melt on the cooktop they will damage the
surface cooking areas at the same time. This may cause
the ceramic cooktop to fracture.
