Place grates over the burners. Fit the tips of the grate feet
into the holes in the ceramic glass.
Setting Surface Controls
Your cooktop may be equipped with any combination of the following burners:
Simmer Burner: best used for simmering delicate sauces, etc.
Standard Burner: used for most all surface cooking needs.
Large Burner: best used when bringing large quantities of liquid to temperature and when
preparing larger quantities of food.
Regardless of size, always select a utensil that is suitable for the amount and type of food
being prepared. Select a burner and flame size appropriate to the pan. Never allow flames to
extend beyond the outer edge of the pan.
Your cooktop is also equipped with 270 ° rotation flame control valves. These valves provide
enhanced control of the burner flame. Each burner lights automatically from an electric
ignitor when its control knob is turned to the UTE position.
Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers, spoon
holders or plastic wrappings on top of the cooktop when it is in use. These items could
melt or ignite. Potholders, towels or wood spoons could catch fire if placed too close to a

Place cooking utensil on burner.
Push in and turn the Surface Control knob to LITE. Note: All electronic ignitors wilt
click at the same time. However, only the burner you are turning on will ignite.
Visually check that the burner has lit.
Push in and turn the control knob to the desired flame size. The control knobs do not
have to be set at a particular mark. Use the guides and adjust the flame as needed. DO
NOT cook with the Surface Control knob in the LITE position. (The electronic ignitor wilt
continue to click if left in the LITE position, causing premature wear.)
In the event of an electrical power outage, the surface burners can be lit manually. To light a
surface burner, hold a lit match to the burner head, then slowly turn the Surface Control knob
to LITE. Use caution when lighting surface burners manually.
NOTE: White glass can
appear green when it is
hot. This is normal, and it
will come back to white
when it cools down.
