Single
radiant
surface
elements
(all models)
To operate the single radiant element:
1.
Place correctly sized cookware on single radiant surface
element.
2.
Push in and turn the surface control knob in either
direction (Fig. 2) to the desired setting (Refer to the
Suggested radiant surface element settings
table Fig. 1). Start most cooking operations on a
higher setting and then turn to a lower setting to finish
cooking. The surface control knobs do not have to be
set exactly on a particular spot. Use the graphics
provided as a guide and adjust the control knob as
needed (See Fig. 2). Each surface element provides a
constant amount of heat at each setting. A glowing red
surface heating area extending beyond the bottom edge
of the cookware indicates the cookware is too small
for the surface heating area.
3.
When cooking is complete, turn the radiant surface
element OFF before removing the cookware.

Radiant surface elements may appear to have cooled
after they have been turned off. The glass surface
may still be hot and burns may occur if the glass
surface is touched before it has cooled sufficiently.
Do not place flammable
items such as plastic 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.

The size and type of utensil used, and the amount and
type of food being cooked will influence the setting
needed for best cooking results.
