WARNING!
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
s
Do not touch glass ceramic surface units
while cooking. This surface may be hot
enough to burn even though it may appear
dark in color. During and after use, do not
touch, or let clothing or other flammable
materials contact the cooking surface. Note
the hot indicator lights and allow sufficient
time for cooling first.
s
Hot surfaces may include both the cooktop
and areas facing the cooktop.
s
To minimize the possibility of burns,
ignition of flammable materials and
spillage, the handle of a container should
be turned toward the center of the
cooktop without extending over any
nearby surface units.
s
Always turn off the surface unit control
before removing the cookware.
s
Use proper pan size—select cookware
having flat bottoms large enough to cover
the surface unit heating element. The use
of undersized cookware will expose a
portion of the surface unit to direct
contact and may result in ignition of
clothing. Proper relationship of cookware
to surface unit will also improve efficiency.
s
Never leave surface units unattended at
high heat settings. Boilovers may cause
smoking and greasy spillovers may ignite.
s
Glass and ceramic cookware is not
recommended for use with your radiant
ceramic glass cooktop.
s
Keep an eye on foods being fried at high
or medium-high heat settings.
s
Foods for frying should be as dry as
possible. Frost on frozen foods or moisture
on fresh foods can cause hot fat to bubble
up and over the sides of the pan.
s
Avoid placing any objects on or near the
keypads in order to prevent accidental
activation of the cooktop controls.
s
Use little fat for effective shallow or
deep-fat frying. Filling the pan too full of
fat can cause spillovers when food is added.
s
If a combination of oils or fats will be used
in frying, stir together before heating, or as
fats melt slowly.
s
Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.
s
Use a deep-fat thermometer whenever
possible to prevent overheating fat beyond
the smoking point.
s
Never try to move a pan of hot fat,
especially a deep-fat fryer. Wait until the fat
is cool.
s
Do not store flammable materials near
the cooktop.
s
Keep the hood and grease filters clean to
maintain good venting and to avoid grease
fires.
s
Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any
appliance.
s
Clean only parts listed in this Owner's
Manual.
s
Do not leave paper products, cooking
utensils or food on the cooktop when not
in use.
s
Keep cooktop clean and free of
accumulation of grease or spillovers
which may ignite.
s
Never heat unopened food containers.
Pressure buildup may make container
burst and cause injury.
s
Never leave jars or cans of fat drippings
on or near your cooktop.
s
Never use your appliance for warming or
heating the room.
