To Operate Single Radiant Surface Elements
Radiant surface elements may appear to have cooled after they have been turned off. The glass surface may
still be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is touched before it has cooled sufficiently.
Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on
top of the range when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite. Potholders, towels or wooden spoons could catch
fire if placed too close to the surface elements.
Do not allow aluminum foil, or ANY material that can melt to make contact with the ceramic glass
cooktop. If these items melt on the cooktop they will damage the ceramic cooktop.

Setting Surface Controls

1. Place correctly sized cookware on the radiant surface element.
2. Push in and turn the surface control knob in either direction to the desired
setting. Start most cooking operations on a higher setting and then turn to a
lower setting to finish cooking. The surface control knobs do not have to be
set exactly on a particular mark. Use the marks as a guide and adjust the
control knob as needed. Each surface element provides a constant amount of
heat at each setting. A glowing red surface heating area extending beyond the
bottom edge of the cookware indicates the cookware is too small for the
surface heating area.
3. When cooking is completed, turn the surface element off before removing the
cookware. Note: the Element On indicator light will glow when one or more
elements are turned on. A quick glance at the indicator light(s) when cooking
is finished is an easy check to be sure all control knobs are turned off. The Hot
Surface indicator light will continue to glow AFTER the control knob is turned
to the "Off" position and will glow until the heating surface area has cooled
