Setting Surface Controls
To Operate the Warmer (Warm & Ready™) Zone
The purpose of the warmer zone is to keep hot cooked foods at serving temperature. Use the warmer zone to keep cooked foods
hot such as: vegetables, gravies, casseroles, soups, stews, breads, pastries and oven-safe dinner plates. Always start with hot
food. It is not recommended to heat cold food on the warmer zone.
All food placed on the warmer zone should be covered with a lid or aluminum foil to maintain quality. For best results, when
warming pastries or breads, the cover should have an opening to allow moisture to escape. Do not use plastic wrap to cover
food. Plastic may melt onto the surface and be very difficult to clean.
Use only dishware, utensils and cookware recommended for oven and cooktop use on the warmer zone.
The surface indicator light is located below the warmer zone control. It turns on when the control is set, and stays on until the
control is turned off. The hot surface indicator light, located on the control panel, will come on when the control is set and
will continue to glow until the glass cooktop has cooled down to a moderate level.
The warmer zone will not glow red when it is hot, but becomes hot enough to cause burns. Avoid placing hands
on or near the warmer zone until the hot surface indicator light is off.
Always use potholders or oven mitts when removing food from the warmer zone
as cookware and plates will be hot.
To Set the Warmer Zone Control
1. To set the control, push in and turn the knob. The temperatures are approximate, and are
designated by HI, MED and LO. However, the control can be set at any position between
HI and LO for different levels of heating.
2. When done, turn the control to OFF. The warmer zone will remain warm until the hot
surface indicator light goes off.
Refer to the chart for recommended heating levels. If a particular food is not listed, start with
the medium level, and adjust as needed. Most foods can be kept at serving temperatures by
using the medium level.
