designed to remove smoke, cooking vapors
and odors from the cook-top area. For the
best results, the vent should be operating
before cooking is started.
If you use large
or tall utensils, place them on the large rear
element or burner surface. A higher heat
setting than normally used may be needed
when the downdraft vent is operating.
