IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR COOKTOP

WARNING

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 also improve efficiency.

Know which 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 knob to the full LITE position when igniting top burners. Visually check that burner has lit. Then adjust the flame so it does not extend beyond the edge of the utensil.

Utensil handles should be turned inward and not extend 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 that it is turned inward, and does not extend over adjacent surface burners.

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

Glazed cooking utensils—Onlycertain types of glass, glass/ceramic, ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for cook top service without breaking due to the sudden change in temperature. Check the manufacturer’s recommendations for cook top use.

When flaming foods under a ventilating hood, turn the fan on.

Air curtain or other overhead range hoods, which operate by blowing a downward air flow on to a range, shall not be used in conjunction with gas ranges other than when the hood and range have been designed, tested and listed by an independent test laboratory for use in combination with each other.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR OVEN

Use care when opening oven door , warmer drawer or lower oven door—Stand to the side of the range when opening the door of a hot oven. Let hot air or steam escape before you remove or replace food in the oven.

Keep Oven Vent Ducts Unobstructed. The oven vent is located below the backguard. Touching the surfaces in this area when the oven is operating 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.

Placement of Oven Racks. Always place oven racks in desired location while oven is cool. If rack must be moved while oven is hot use extreme caution. Use potholders and grasp the rack with both hands to reposition. Do not let potholders contact the hot heating elements in the oven. Remove all utensils from the rack before moving.

Do not use the broiler pan without its 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 the broiler insert with aluminum foil. Exposed fat and grease could ignite.

Protective liners—Donot use aluminum foil to line the oven bottom. Only use aluminum foil as recommended in this manual. Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of electric shock, or fire.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLEANING YOUR RANGE

Clean the range regularly to keep all parts free of grease that could catch fire. Pay particular attention to the area around each surface burner. Do not allow grease to accumulate.

Kitchen cleaners and aerosols—Alwaysfollow the manufacturer’s recommended directions for use.

Be aware that excess residue from cleaners and aerosols may ignite causing damage and injury.

Clean ventilating hoods frequently—Greaseshould not be allowed to accumulate on the hood or filter.

Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning hoods.

CAUTION

Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on the cooktop 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 range cooktop.

IMPORTANT

Do not place aluminum foil, or ANY material that can melt on the range cooktop. If these items melt they may damage the cooktop.

NOTE

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.

Cookware material types

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).

Copper - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily.

Stainless - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.

Cast Iron - A slow heat conductor however will retain heat very well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is reached.

Porcelain-enamel on metal - Heating characteristics will vary depending on base material.

Glass - Slow heat conductor.

For deep fat frying; use a thermometer and adjust the surface 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 under cooked. Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much food at once as the food will neither brown or cook properly.

Flamesize*

Type of cooking

 

 

High flame

Start most foods; bring water to a boil;

 

pan broiling.

 

 

Medium flame

Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces,

 

gravies; steaming.

 

 

Low flame

Keep foods cooking; poach; stewing.

* These settings are based for medium-weightmetal or aluminum pans with lids. Settings may vary when using other types of pans.

Fig. 2

CAUTION

Never extend the flame beyond the outer edge of the cooking utensil. A higher flame wastes energy, and increases your risk of being burned by the flame (Fig. 3).

Setting surface controls

Your gas appliance may be equipped with different sized surface burners. The ability to heat food quicker and in larger volumes increases as the burner size increases. It is important to select cookware that is suitable for the amount and type of food being prepared.

The smaller simmer burner (some models) is best suited for simmering delicate sauces, etc.

The standard size (9,500 BTU) burners may be used for most surface cooking needs.

The larger (quick boil - some models) burner or burners are best used for bringing large quantities of liquid to temperature or when preparing larger quantities of food.

Setting surface burners

1.Place cooking utensil on center of surface burner grate. Make sure the utensil is centered and stable on the grate.

2.Push the desired surface control knob in and turn counterclockwise out of the OFF position (Fig. 1).

3.Release the knob and rotate to the LITE position. Visually check that the gas burner has lit.

4.Push the control knob in and turn counterclockwise to the desired flame size. Use the control knob markings and adjust the flame as needed.

CAUTION

Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on the cooktop 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 range cooktop.

NOTES

DO NOT cook with the surface control knob in the LITE position. The electronic ignitor will continue to spark if the control knob is left in the LITE position.

When setting any surface control knob to the LITE position, all electronic surface ignitors will spark at the same time. However, only the surface burner you are setting will ignite.

SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS

Fig. 1

IMPORTANT

NEVERplace or straddle a cooking utensil over 2 different surface cooking areas at the same time.

Do not place aluminum foil, or ANY material that can melt on the range cooktop. If these items melt they may permanently damage the cooktop surface.

In the event of an electrical power outage, the surface burners can be lit manually. Use caution when lighting surface burners manually. To light a surface burner, hold a lit match to the burner head, then slowly turn the surface control knob to LITE. After burner lights push in and turn knob to desired setting.

Home Canning

Be sure to read and observe all the following points when home canning with your appliance. Check with the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) website and be sure to read all the information they have available as well as follow their recommendations for home canning procedures.

Use only quality flat bottom canners when home canning. Use a straight-edgeto check canner bottom.

Use only a completely flat bottom canner with no ridges that radiate from the bottom center when home canning using a ceramic cooktop.

Make sure the diameter of the canner does not exceed 1 inch beyond the surface element markings or burner. It is recommended to use smaller diameter canners on electric coil and ceramic glass cooktops.

Start with hot tap water to bring water to boil more quickly.

Use the highest heat seating when first bringing the water to a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to lowest possible setting to maintain that boil.

To clean the surface burner heads

For proper gas flow it may be necessary to clean the burner head and slots. To clean, first use a clean DAMP cloth to soak up any spills. Remove any food from between the burner slots using a small nonabrasive brush like a toothbrush and afterwards wipe up using a damp cloth. For stubborn soils located in the slots, use a small-gaugewire or needle to clean.

Any spill on or around the electrode must be carefully cleaned. Take care not to hit the electrode with any thing hard or it could be damaged.

To clean the burner head ignition ports

Each burner head has a small ignition port located as illustrated. Should you experience ignition problems it may be that this port hole is partially blocked with soil. With the burner head in place, use a small wire gauge needle or the end of a paper clip to clear the ignition port (See Fig. 1 - center burner not shown).
