note
Due to the high intensity of heat generated by the
surface elements, the glass surface will turn green
when the element will be turned off. This phenomenon
is normal and the glass will come back to its original
white color after it has completely cooled down. (White
glass cooktops only).

recommended setting for surface element
setting
type of cooking
HIGH (HI)
Start most foods; bring water to a boil
and pan broiling.
MEDIUM HIGH
Continue a rapid boil; frying, deep fat
(8-10)
frying.
MEDIUM (6)
Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces
and gravies; steaming vegetables.

note
Radiant elements have a limiter that allows the element
to cycle on and off, even at the HI setting. This helps to
prevent damage to the ceramic smooth top. Cycling at
the HI setting is normal and can occur if the cookware
is too small for the radiant element or if the cookware
bottom is not flat.

do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper
shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on
cooktop 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.
caution
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.
