Placement of Burner Grates
Place grate over burner pans. Make sure that the groove under grate
fits over the raised lip of the burner pan. The rounded corners of the
grates should be placed toward the front of the cooktop for the front
burners and the rear of the cooktop for the back burners.
Setting Surface Controls
Your cooktop may be equipped with any combination of the following
Simmer Burner; this burner is best used for simmering delicate sauces, etc.
Standard Burner; can be used for most all surface cooking needs.
Large Burner; the larger burner is best used when bringing large quantities
of liquid to temperature and when preparing larger quantities of food.
Regardless of size, always select a utensil that is suitable for the amount
and type of food being prepared. Select a burner and flame size
appropriate to the pan. Never allow flames to extend beyond the outer edge of the pan.
Your cooktop is also equipped with 270° rotation valves. These valves provide enhanced control of the burner flame. Each burner
lights automatically from an electric ignitor when its control knob is turned to the LITE position.
Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on top
of the cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite. Potholders, towels or wood spoons could catch fire if placed
too close to a flame.
NOTE: White glass can appear green when it is hot, it is normal, and it will come back to white when it cools down.
Electric Ignition Models
In event of an electrical power outage, the surface burners can be lit manually. To light a surface burner, hold a lit match to the
burner head, then slowly turn the surface control knob to LITE. Use caution when lighting surface burners manually.
Surface burner in use when an electrical power failure occurs will continue to operate normally.
Do not operate the burner for an extended period of time without cookware on the grate. The finish on
the grate may chip without cookware to absorb the heat.
To operate the surface burner:
1. Place cooking utensil on burner.
2. Push in and turn the Surface Control knob to LITE. Note: All electronic ignitors will click at the
same time. However, only the burner you are turning on will ignite.
3. Visually check that the burner has lit.
4. Push in and turn the control knob to the desired flame size. The control knobs do not have to
be set at a particular mark. Use the guides and adjust the flame as needed. DO NOT cook with
the Surface Control knob in the LITE position. (The electronic ignitor will continue to click if left
in the LITE position, causing premature wear.)
In the event of an electrical power outage, the surface burners can be lit manually. To light a surface
burner, hold a lit match to the burner head, then slowly turn the Surface Control knob to LITE. Use
caution when lighting surface burners manually.
