Using Your Ceramic Glass
Surface (select models)
On Canadian
models,
the
cooking
areas
will not
operate
during
a
self-clean
cycle.
This
is
normal.
The
four
cooking
areas
on your
Maytag
range
are
identified
by
permanent
patterns
in
the
ceramic
glass
surface.
There
are two large
(8-inch)
and
two
small
(6-inch)
areas.
The
cooking
areas
are
marked
to help
you
select
an
appropriately
sized
utensil.
The
utensil
should
be
centered
over
the
design
for
maximum
energy
efficiency.
If
the
cookware
extends
more
than
iwo
inches
beyond
the cooking
area,
cooking
times
may
be longer
and
excess
heat
may
be
transferred
to
the
ceramic
glass
surface.
When
a cooking
area
is turned
on, a red glow from
the
coil element
can
be
seen
through
the
ceramic
glass
surface.
The
red glow will
cycle
on and
off as
the
element
cycles
to maintain
the
selected
heat
setting.
Before
using
the cooktop
for the first
time,
clean
it
thoroughly
as directed
on
the
cleaning
chart
on
pages
23-24.
This
will
protect
the
ceramic
glass
surface
and
_mll guarantee
a clean
cooktop
when
the elements
are
turned
on.
NOTE:
During
the
first
few
hours
of use,
you
may
notice
that
the
ceramic
cooktop
emits
a
slight
burning
odor
and
a light
smoke.
Both
of
these
conditions
are normal
and
are
caused
by
the
insulation
material
of the
heating
elements
in a new
ceramic
cooktop.
To help
keep
the
ceramic
glass
clean,
be sure
the
cooking
area
and
utensil
bottom
are clean
and
dry
before
use.
Tips to Protect
the Ceramic
Glass
Cooktop
Do
not
use
glass
utensils
on
the
ceramic
glass
cooktop.
Glass
ceramic,
earthenware,
heatproof
glass
or glazed
utensils
may
scratch
the
cooktop
and
are not
recommended.
Do not
allow
plastic,
aluminum
foil,
sugar
or food
with
a high
sugar
content
to melt
onto
the
hot
cooktop
since
this
can
cause
permanent
damage.
If you
accidentally
melt
these
items
to the cooktop.
remove
the
substance
immediately
while
it is still
hot
using
a razor
blade
scraper
held
careflflly
with
a potholder.
Do not
attempt
further
cleaning
until
the
area
has
cooled.
Do
not
slide
metal
or
glass
items
across
the
ceramic
glass
surface.
They
may
damage
the
top.
Do
not
slide
aluminum
cookware
across
the
cooktop.
This
may
result
in
aluminum
marks
which
need
to
be
removed
promptly
with
a
recommended
cooktop
cleaner.
Disposable
aluminum
cookware,
ahnninum
foil or
foil containers
such
as
popcorn
poppers
are
not
recommended
for
use
on
the
ceramic
glass
cooktop.
They
will
leave
metal
marks
and
may
permanently
melt
onto
the
ceramic
top
if the
cooking
area
is turned
on.
To protect
the cooktop,
avoid
cooking
food
directly
on
the
cooktop
without
a utensil
or using
the
top
as a work
surface
or cutting
board.
Do not use a trivet
or metal
stand
(such
as a wok
ring) between
the utensil
and
the cooktop.
These
items
can
mark
or etch
the
surface
and
affect
cooking
efficiency,
