COOKTOP USE
Fire Hazard
Turn off all controls when done cooking.
Failure to do so can result in death or fire.
The cooktop touch controls offer a variety of heat settings for
optimal cooking results. For normal surface cooking element
operation, the cooktop touch controls can be set anywhere
between SIMMER and HIGH.
When melting foods such as chocolate or butter, or when
proofing bread, the right front and left front surface cooking areas
can be set to MELT for minimal element operation.
For maximum element operation, all cooktop touch controls can
be set to HIGH when bringing liquids to a fast and rapid boil.
Touch the "down" arrow to immediately reach the HIGH setting.
NOTE: Where 240 V installation is not available, this cooktop will
automatically
adjust to 208 V operation.
To Use:
1. Touch ON/OFF
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 to turn surface
cooking area(s) off individually, or touch ALL OFF to turn all
elements off at the same time.
Use the following chart as a guide when setting heat levels.
