Surface units – Sharp JB940 User Manual
Care and Cleaning
Use proper pan size—select cookware having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface unit
heating element. The use of undersized cookware will expose a portion of the surface unit to direct
contact and may result in ignition of clothing. Proper relationship of cookware to surface unit will
also improve efficiency.
Never leave the surface units unattended at
high heat settings. Boilovers cause smoking
and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
Only certain types of glass, glass ⁄ceramic,
earthenware or other glazed containers are
suitable for cooktop service; others may
break because of the sudden change in
To minimize the possibility of burns,
ignition of flammable materials and
spillage, the handle of a container should
be turned toward the center of the range
without extending over nearby surface units.
Always turn the surface units off before
When preparing flaming foods under the
hood, turn the fan on.
Use care when touching the cooktop. The
glass surface of the cooktop will retain heat
after the controls have been turned off.
Keep an eye on foods being fried at high or
medium high heat settings.
Foods for frying should be as dry as
possible. Frost on frozen foods or moisture
on fresh foods can cause hot fat to bubble
up and over the sides of the pan.
Use little fat for effective shallow or deep
fat frying. Filling the pan too full of fat can
cause spillovers when food is added.
If a combination of oils or fats will be used
in frying, stir together before heating, or as
fats melt slowly.
Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.
Use a deep fat thermometer whenever
possible to prevent overheating fat beyond
the smoking point.
Avoid scratching the glass cooktop. The
cooktop can be scratched with items such
as sharp instruments; rings or other
jewelry, and rivets on clothing.
Do not operate the radiant surface units if
the glass is broken. Spillovers or cleaning
solution may penetrate a broken cooktop
and create a risk of electrical shock.
Contact a qualified technician immediately
should your glass cooktop become broken.
Never use the glass cooktop surface as a
Do not place or store items that can melt or
catch fire on the glass cooktop, even when
it is not being used.
Be careful when placing spoons or other
stirring utensils on glass cooktop surface
when it is in use. They may become hot and
could cause burns.
Clean the cooktop with caution. If a wet
sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a
hot surface unit, be careful to avoid steam
burns. Some cleaners can produce noxious
fumes if applied to a hot surface.
We recommend that you avoid
wiping any surface unit areas until they
have cooled and the indicator light has
gone off. Sugar spills are the exception to
this. Please see the Cleaning the glass
When the cooktop is cool, use only the
recommended cleaning cream to clean
To avoid possible damage to the cooking
surface, do not apply cleaning cream to
the glass surface when it is hot.
After cleaning, use a dry cloth or paper
towel to remove all cleaning cream residue.
Read and follow all instructions and
warnings on the cleaning cream labels.
