Keep warm zone (some models)
The purpose of the keep warm zone is to keep hot cooked
foods at serving temperature. Use the keep warm feature to
keep cooked foods hot such as: vegetables, gravies, casse-
roles, soups, stews, breads, pastries and oven-safe dinner
Always start with hot food. It is not recommended to heat
cold food on the keep warm zone. All food placed on the
keep warm zone should be covered with a lid to maintain
For best results, when warming pastries or breads, the
cover should have an opening to allow moisture to escape.
Do not use plastic wrap to cover food. Plastic may melt onto
the surface and be very difficult to clean. Use only plates,
utensils and cookware recommended for oven and cooktop
use on the keep warm zone.
The keep warm zone will not glow red when it is hot, but
becomes hot enough to cause burns. Avoid placing
hands on or near the keep warm zone until the keep
warm zone hot surface indicator light is OFF. Always use
potholders or oven mitts when removing food from the
keep warm zone as cookware and plates will be hot.
Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper
shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on top of the
range 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.
Do not allow aluminum foil, empty glass/porcelain
cookware or any material that can melt to make contact
with the ceramic cooktop. If these items melt on the
cooktop they may damage the ceramic cooktop.
