Surface Cooking

Placement of burner grates

Place grates on the Ceramic Glass Cooktop. Be sure they are right
located inside the stainless steel frame.
ATTENTION: Do not slide the grates on the stainless steel frame,
doing so can damage the surface.

Flame Size

For most cooking, start on the highest control
setting and then turn to a lower one to complete
the process. Use the chart below as a guide for
determining proper fl ame size for various types
of cooking. The size and type of utensil used and
the amount of food being cooked will infl uence the
setting needed for cooking.
For deep fat frying, use a thermometer and adjust
the surface control knob accordingly. If the fat is too
cool, the food will absorb the fat and be greasy. If
the fat is too hot, the food will brown so quickly that
the center will be undercooked. Do not attempt to
deep fat fry too much food at once as the food will
neither brown nor cook properly.

*These settings are based on using medium-
weight aluminum pans with lids. Settings may
vary when using other types of pans.
Never extend the fl ame beyond the outer edge of
the utensil. A higher fl ame simply wastes heat and
energy, and increases your risk of being burned by
the fl ame.

Proper Burner Adjustments

The color of the fl ame is the key to proper burner
adjustment. A good fl ame is clear, blue and hardly
visible in a well-lighted room. Each cone of fl ame
should be steady and sharply defi ned. Adjust or clean
burner if fl ame is yellow-orange. To clean burner, see
instructions under General Care & Cleaning.
