iMPORTANT iNSTRUCTiONS FOR USING

YOUR COOKTOP

Use proper flame size--Adjustflame size so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil. The use of undersized utensils will expose a portion of the burner flame to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to flame will alsoimprove efficiency.

Do not use stove top grills on the burner grates of sealed gas burners. If you use a stove top grill on a sealed gas burner, it will cause incomplete

combustion and can result in exposure to carbon monoxide levels above allowable current standards. This

can be hazardous to your health.

Knowwhich knob controls each surface burner. Place a pan of food on the burner before turning it on, and turn the burner off before removing the pan.

Always turn the knob to the full LITEposition whenigniting top burners. Visually check that burner has lit. Then adjust the flame soit does notextend beyond theedge of the utensil.

Use proper pan size. This applianceis equipped with one or more surface burners of different sizes. Select utensils having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface burner. The use of undersized utensils will

expose a portion of the surface burner to direct contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of utensil to the surface burner will alsoimprove efficiency.

Utensil handles should be turnedinward and notextend over adjacent surface burners. To reduce the risk of burns, ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to unintentional contact with the utensil, the handle of the utensil should be positioned so thatit is turnedinward, and does not extend to adjacent surface burners.

Never leave surface burners unattended at high heatsettings--Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite,or a pan that has boiled dry may melt.

Protective liners--Donot use aluminum foil to line surface burner pans, or oven bottom, except as suggestedin this manual,improper installation of these liners may resultin risk of electric shock, or fire.

Glazed cookingutensils--Onlycertain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic,earthenware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for range top service without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the manufacturer's recommendations for cooktop

use.

Do not use Searing Grill on the cooktop. The searing grillis not designed for use on the cooktop. Doing so may result in a fire.

Do not use decorativesurface burner covers.If a burnerisaccidentally turned on, the decorative cover will become hot and possibly melt. Burns will occurif the hot covers are touched. Damage may also be done to the cooktop or burners because the covers may cause overheating. Air will be blocked from the burner and cause combustion problems.

FOR GLASS COOKTOPS ONLY

Do not clean or operate a brokencooktop--lfcooktop should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk ofelectric shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.

Clean cooktop glass withcaution--If a wet sponge or

cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking area, be careful to avoid a steam burn. Some cleaners can

produce harmful fumes if applied to a hot surface.

Avoid scratching thecooktop glass with sharpobjects.

iMPORTANT iNSTRUCTiONS FOR USING

YOUR OVEN

=Use care when openingoven door or warm & serve drawer (ifequipped)--Standto the side of the range when opening the door of a hot oven. Let hot air or steamescape before you remove or replace foodin the oven/warm & serve drawer.

Keep oven ventducts unobstructed.The oven vent islocated at the center rear of the cooktop. Touching the surfaces inthis area when the oven isoperating may cause severe burns. Also, do not place plastic or heat-

sensitive items on or near the oven vent. These items could melt or ignite.

NEVER cover any slots, holesor passages in theoven bottomor cover an entirerack with materials such as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks air flow through the oven and may cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Aluminum foil linings may trap heat, causing a fire hazard.

Placement of oven/warm & serve drawer (if equipped)racks. Always place oven racks indesired location while oven/warm & serve drawer (if equipped) iscool. If rack must be moved while oven ishot use extreme caution. Use potholders and grasp the rack with both hands to reposition. Do not let potholders contact the hot heating elements inthe oven/warm & serve drawer (if equipped). Remove all utensils from the rack before moving.

Do not use a broiler pan withoutits insert. The broiler pan and its insert allow dripping fat to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler.

Do not cover your broilerinsert withaluminum foil. Exposed fat and grease couldignite.

Flame Size

 

 

 

For most cooking

- start on the highest control setting and then turn to a lower

 

 

one to complete the process. Use the recommendations below as a guide for

 

 

determining proper

flame size for various types of cooking. The size and type of

 

Correct

utensil used and the amount of food being cooked will influence the setting needed.

*Flame Size

High Flame

Medium Flame

Low Flame

Type of Cooking

Start most foods; bring water to a boil; pan broiling. Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces, gravies; steaming. Keep foods cooking; poach; stewing.

Incorrect

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. Never extend the flame beyond the outer] Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much food at once as the food will neither brown edge of the utensil. A higher flame simply /nor cook properly.

wastes heat and energy, and increases /

the risk of being burned by the gas flame. / J

*Note: Settings are basedon usingmedium-weightmetalor aluminum pans. Settings may varywhen using other typesof pans. The color of the flameis the key to proper burner adjustment. A good flameis clear, blue and hardly visiblein a welllighted room. Each cone of flame should be steady and sharp. Adjust or clean burnerif flameis yellow-orange.

Air Circulation in the Oven

For best air circulation and baking results allow 2-4"(5-10cm) around the cookware for proper air circulation and be sure pans and cookware do not touch

each other, the oven door, sides or back of the oven cavity. The hot air must

circulate around the pans and cookware in the oven for even heat to reach1 Oven Rack around the food.

Some models areequipped with a blowerwhich runsin baking andself-cleaning mode tokeep allinternal components at acool temperature,it is possible that the blower keeps runningeven if the rangehas been turnedoff, until thecomponents havecooled down.
