BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS About the ceramic glass cooktop The ceramic cooktop has radiant surface elements element ON indicator light located below the surface of the glass. The design of the ceramic cooktop outlines the area of the surface element underneath. Be sure to match the pan size with the diameter of the element outline on the cooktop and only flat-bottomed cookware should be used. The type and size of cookware, 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 hot enough to cause burns. Fig. 1 About the radiant surface elements hot surface indicator light 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 efficient cooking, turn OFF the element several minutes before cooking is complete. This will allow residual heat to complete the cooking process. Element on & hot surface indicator lights Fig. 2 Your appliance is equipped with two different types of radiant surface control indicator lights that will glow on the control panel — the on indicator and the hot surface NOTES indicator lights.

The dual radiant element is flexible because you may set just the smaller inner portion as a single element or both inner and outer portions can be set Cookware should have flat bottoms that make good to heat together (See Fig. 1). contact with the entire surface heating element (See Fig. 2). Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of the cookware (See Fig. 3). For more information about the ceramic cooktop see “Cooktop cleaning & maintenance” in the Care & Cleaning section. Dual radiant Single radiant surface control surface control (some models) Fig. 1 Cookware material types The cookware material determines how evenly and quickly heat is transferred from the surface element to the pan bottom. The most popular materials available are: Aluminum - Excellent heat conductor. Some types of food will cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum cookware resists staining & pitting). If aluminum pans slide across the ceramic cooktop, they may leave metal marks which will resemble scratches. Remove these marks immediately. Copper - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily. May leave metal marks on ceramic glass (see Aluminum). Stainless - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining. Fig. 2 Cast Iron - A slow heat conductor however will retain heat very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is reached. Not recommended for use on ceramic cooktops. Porcelain-enamel on metal - Heating characteristics will vary depending on base material. Porcelain-enamel coating must be smooth to avoid scratching ceramic cooktops. Glass - Slow heat conductor. Not recommended for ceramic cooktop surfaces because it may scratch the glass. Fig. 3 9

SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS 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 Fig. 2 edge of the cookware indicates the cookware is too small for the surface heating area. 3. When cooking is complete, turn the radiant surface CAUTION element OFF before removing the cookware. Radiant surface elements may appear to have cooled Suggested radiant surface element after they have been turned off. The glass surface settings may still be hot and burns may occur if the glass surface is touched before it has cooled sufficiently.

The hot surface indicator light will continue to glow AFTER the control knob is turned to the “OFF” position and will glow until the heating surface area has cooled sufficiently. 10

SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS Dual radiant surface elements (some models) Symbols on the backguard are used to indicate which coil of the dual radiant element will heat. The symbol indicates the inner coil only. The symbol indicates both inner and outer coils will heat. To operate a dual radiant element: 1. Place correctly sized cookware on dual radiant surface element. 2. Push in and turn the surface control knob clockwise to begin heating both the inner and outer portions of the dual element. If only the inner heating portion is Heating with inner (small) Heating with both needed like for smaller cookware, push in and turn the element only elements knob counter-clockwise to start. 3. When cooking is complete, turn the dual radiant surface element OFF before removing the cookware. 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 mark. Use the marks as a guide and adjust the control knob as needed. 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.
