Keep Warm Function

WARNING
Food Poisoning Hazard
Do not let food sit for more than one hour before or
after cooking.
Doing so can result in food poisoning or sickness.
The Keep Warm function can be used to keep cooked foods
warm, and may be used whether or not the other surface cooking
zones are in use. One hour is the recommended maximum time
to maintain food quality.
It is not recommended for heating cold foods. When the Keep
Warm function is in use, it will not glow red like the cooking
zones, but the indicator light will glow on the control panel.
Use only cookware and dishes recommended for oven and
cooktop use, and those that have flat bottoms to make direct
contact with the cooktop surface. Use pot holders or oven mitts
to remove cookware.
Cover all foods with a lid or aluminum foil. Do not use plastic
wrap to cover food, as it may melt onto the cooktop surface.
When warming baked goods, allow a small opening in the cover
for moisture to escape.
Food quality may deteriorate if food is kept on the Keep Warm
function for an extended period of time. For best results, keep
food warm for no longer than 30 to 45 minutes.
On models with touch-activated controls, the Keep Warm
element is available on all surface cooking areas, and can be
used as either an element for warming foods, or for normal
element operation.
To Use:
1. Touch ON/OFF.
2. Touch the "plus" (+) keypad twice for KEEP WARM.
3. When finished cooking, touch ON/OFF to turn off surface
cooking area.
