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

removing cookware.

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

cutting board.

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

the cooktop.

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.
