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 to 4).
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.
