Surface cooking settings

Use the chart to determine the correct setting for the type of food you are preparing.
Note: The size and type of cookware used will influence the setting needed for best
cooking results.
Setting
HIGH (HI)
MEDIUM HIGH (8-10)
MEDIUM (6)
MEDIUM LOW (2 - 4)
LOW (LO)
NOTE: Please read detailed instructions for ceramic glass cooktop cleaning in the General Care & Cleaning section and Before
You Call checklist section of this Use and Care Guide.
NOTE: Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the element to cycle on and off, even at the HI setting. This helps to prevent
damage to the ceramic smooth top. Cycling at the HI setting is normal and can occur if the cookware is too small for the radiant
element or if the cookware bottom is not flat (Refer to page 12 under Selecting Surface Cooking Utensils).
NOTE: Due to the high intensity of heat generated by the surface elements, the glass surface will turn green when the
element will be turned off. This phenomenon is normal and the glass will come back to its original white color after it has
completely cooled down. (White glass cooktops only).
