Using
Your
Ceramic
Glass
Surface
(select
models)
Cooking
Areas
The cooking
areas
on your
range
are identified
by
permanent
patterns
in the ceramic
glass surface.
There
are two large (8-inch) and two small (6-inch)
areas. For
most efficient
cooking,
use smaller
areas for small pans
and larger areas _br large pans. For
best
results
pans
should
not extend
more
than
112 to 1 inch beyond
the cooking
area.
When
a cooking area is turned
on, a red glow from the
element
can be seen through
the ceramic
glass surface.
The red glow will cycle on and off as the eIement
cycles
to maintain
the selected
heat setting.
Hot
Surface
Light
"t_mr ceramic
glass range
is equipped
with a red Hot
Surface
Light
that will turn
on to indicate
that
the
cooking surface
is hot. It will remain
on until the area
has cooled.
Heat
Retention
The ceramic
glass cooking area retains heat for a period
of time after the elements
have been
turned
off. Put
this retained
heat to good use. Turn the elements
off a
few minutes
before
food is completely
cooked
and use
the retained
heat to complete
the cooking.
Because
of
this heat retention
characteristic,
the elements
will not
respond
to changes
in heat settings
as quickly
as coil
elements.
In
the
event
of a potential
boilover,
remove
the pan from
the cooking
area.
Tips to Protect
the Ceramic
Glass
Cooktop

with high sugar content
to melt onto the hot cooktop.
If you accidentally
melt these
items
to the cooktop,
remove immediately
while still hot using a r_or
blade
scraper
held
carefully
with
a potholder.
Melted
materials
