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.
Heat
is transferred
up through
the surface
of the cooktop
to the cool<ware.
Only
fiat-bottom
cookware
should
be
used.
The type
and size of cool<ware,
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
ho| enough
fo 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 energy
efficient
cooking,
turn
off the element
several
minutes
before
cooking
is complete.
This will
allow
residual
heat
to complete
the
cooking
process.

Controls

is equipped
with
radiant
surface
burners
with
different
wattage
ratings.
The ability
to heat
food
quicker
and

volumes
increases
as the element
wattage
increases.

NOT_:
Radiant
elements
have
a iimiter
that
allows
the
element
to cycle
on and off,
even
at the
HI
setting.
This
helps to prevent
damage
to the ceramic
cooktop.
Cycling
at the
HI
setting
is normal
and
will
mostly
occur
if the
cool<ware
is too small
for the radiant
element
or if the
cookware
bottom
is not fiat
