SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS

Your cooktop may be equipped with any combination of the following burners:
Simmer Burner: best used for simmering delicate sauces, etc.
Standard Burner: used for most all surface cooking needs.
Large Burner: best used when bringing large quantities of liquid to temperature and when
preparing larger quantities of food.
Regardless of size, always select a utensil that is suitable for the amount and type of food
being prepared. Select a burner and flame size appropriate to the pan. Never allow flames to
extend beyond the outer edge of the pan.
Your cooktop is also equipped with 270° rotation flame control valves. These valves provide
enhanced control of the burner flame. Each burner lights automatically from an electric
ignitor when its control knob is turned to the LITE position.
CAUTION
!
Do not place plastic items such as salt and pepper shakers, spoon holders or plastic wrappings on
top of the cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or ignite. Potholders, towels or wood spoons
could catch fire if placed too close to a flame.
To operate the surface burner:
1. Place cooking utensil on burner.
2. Push in and turn the Surface Control knob to LITE. Note: All electronic
ignitors will click at the same time. However, only the burner you are turning
on will ignite.
3. Visually check that the burner has lit.
4. Turn the control knob to the desired flame size. The control knobs do not
have to be set at a particular mark. Use the guides and adjust the flame as
needed. DO NOT cook with the Surface Control knob in the LITE position.
(The electronic ignitor will continue to click if left in the LITE position,
causing premature wear.)
In the event of an electrical power outage, the surface burners can be lit
manually. To light a surface burner, hold a lit match to the burner head, then
slowly turn the Surface Control knob to LITE. Use caution when lighting surface
burners manually.
