IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Use Proper Flame Size—Adjust flame size
so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil. The
use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the burner
flame to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing.
Proper relationship of utensil to flame will also improve
Do not use stove top grills on your top
gas burners. If you use a stove top grill on a gas burner, it
will cause incomplete combustion and can result in exposure
to carbon monoxide levels above allowable current standards.
This can be hazardous to your health.
• Use Proper Pan Size—This appliance is equipped with one
or more surface burners of different sizes. Select utensils
having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface
burner. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion
of the surface burner to direct contact and may result in
ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to the
surface burner will also improve efficiency.
• Utensil Handles Should Be Turned Inward and Not
Extend Over Adjacent Surface Burners—To reduce the
risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage
due to unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of
the utensil should be positioned so that it is turned inward,
and does not extend over adjacent surface burners.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
• Never Leave Surface Burners Unattended at High Heat
Settings—Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers
that may ignite, or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.
• Protective Liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line surface
burner pans. Only use aluminum foil as recommended for
baking if used as a cover placed on the food. Any other use
of protective liners or aluminum foil may result in a risk of
electric shock or fire or a short circuit.
• Glazed Cooking Utensils—Only certain types of glass,
glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed
utensils are suitable for cooktop service without breaking due
to the sudden change in temperature. Check the
manufacturer's recommendations for cooktop use.
• Do Not Use Decorative Surface Burner Covers. If a burner
is accidentally turned on, the decorative cover will become
hot and possibly melt. You will not be able to see that the
burner is on. Burns will occur if the hot covers are touched.
Damage may also be done to the cooktop or burners because
the covers may cause overheating. Air will be blocked from
the burner and cause combustion problems.
