Use flat-bottomed
cookware for best heat conduction and
energy efficiency. Cookware with rounded, warped, ribbed or
dented bottoms could cause uneven heating and poor
cooking results.
Determine 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.
Cookware designed with slightly indented bottoms or small
expansion channels can be used.
Make sure the bottoms of pots and pans are clean and dry
before using them. Residue and water can leave deposits
when heated.
Do not cook foods directly on the cooktop.
The Dual Cooking Zone(s) offers flexibility depending on the size
of the cookware. Single size can be used in the same way as a
regular element. The dual size combines both the single and
outer element and is recommended
for larger size cookware.
When you are using the single size element, the dual size element
can be turned on at any time, and you can switch back to the
single size element if needed.
To Use SINGLE:
1. Touch ON/OFF SINGLE.
2. Touch the "up" or "down" arrow to increase or decrease
power.
3. To choose a power level between HIGH and SIMMER, touch
and hold either arrow until the desired level has been
reached.
4. When finished cooking, touch ON/OFF SINGLE to turn
surface cooking area(s) off individually, or touch ALL OFF to
turn all elements off at the same time.
To Use DUAL:
1. Touch ON/OFF DUAL.
2. Touch the "up" or "down" arrow to increase or decrease
power.
3. To choose a power level between HIGH and SIMMER, touch
and hold either arrow until the desired level has been
reached.
4. When finished cooking, touch ON/OFF DUAL to turn surface
cooking area(s) off individually, or touch ALL OFF to turn all
elements off at the same time.
