about the ceramic glass cooktop
The ceramic cooktop has radiant surface elements located
below the surface of the glass. The design of the ceramic
cooktop outlines the area of the surface element underneath.
make sure the diameter of the pan matches the diameter
of the element outline on the cooktop (See Figs. 1 & 2).
Heat is transferred up through the surface of the cooktop to
the cookware. Only flat-bottom cookware should be used.
The type and size of cookware, the number of surface
elements in use and their settings are all factors that will
affect the amount of heat that will spread to areas beyond
the surface elements. The areas surrounding the elements
may become hot enough to cause burns.

about the radiant surface elements
The element temperature rises gradually and evenly. As the
temperature rises, the element will glow red. To maintain
the selected setting, the element will cycle ON and OFF.
The heating element retains enough heat to provide a
uniform and consistent heat during the OFF cycle. For
efficient cooking, turn OFF the element several minutes
before cooking is complete. This will allow residual heat to
complete the cooking process.
