SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS

Operating induction cooking zones (cont'd)
IMPORTANT
• The HE (hot element) message may appear in the
display windows once a heating element or cooking
zone is turned OFF and will remain ON until the
heating surface area or areas have cooled sufficiently.
• 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 may damage the ceramic cooktop.
• If the cookware is moved from the center of any active
induction cooking zone, the pan sensor will detect the
situation and the cookware will no longer heat. The
affected cooking zone display window will flash until
the cookware is moved back to center of cooking
zone. If the cookware is placed back properly
centered on the cooking zone the zone will resume
heating. The cooking zone will remember the power
level setting for up to 3 minutes before the cooking
zone will automatically shut OFF.
Pan preheat recommendations
Be aware that induction cooking may decrease the amount
of time normally required to preheat a cooking utensil when
compared to cooking with a radiant element cooktop or gas
surface burner.
Whenever using the cooktop or oven always pay close
attention to all food items cooking and remain very attentive
until all the cooking processes are complete.

Home Canning

Be sure to read and observe all the following points when
home canning with your appliance. Check with the USDA
(United States Department of Agriculture) website and be
sure to read all the information they have available as well
as follow their recommendations for home canning
procedures.
• Use only quality flat bottom canners when home canning.
Use a straight-edge to check canner bottom (see
Cookware Recommendations section).
• Use only a completely flat bottom canner with no
ridges that radiate from the bottom center when home
canning using a range with a ceramic glass cooktop.
• Make sure the diameter of the canner does not
exceed 1 inch beyond the cooking zone markings.
It is recommended to use smaller diameter canners on
ranges with ceramic glass or open coil electic cooktops.
• Start with hot tap water to bring water to boil more
quickly.
• Use the highest heat setting when first bringing the water
to a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to lowest
possible setting to maintain that boil.
IMPORTANT
NEVER place or straddle a cooking utensil over 2 different
surface cooking zones heating at the same time. This will
cause uneven heating results and could cause the
ceramic cooktop to fracture.
