Proper Flame Size

Improper Flame


Never extend the flame beyond the outer edge of the utensil. A higher flame simply wastes heat and energy. and increases your risk of being being burned by the flame.

Setting Surface Controls Your range may be equipped with different sized surface burners. The ability to heat food quicker and in larger volumes increases as the burner size increases.

The simmer burner (if equipped) is best used for simmering delicate sauces. etc. The standard burners can be used for most surface cooking needs. The Power Plus TM burners (if equipped) are best used for bringing large quantities of liquid to temperature and when preparing larger quantities of food.

Regardless of size. always select cookware 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.

Each burner lights automatically from an electric ignitor each time a control knob is turned to the LITE position.

Operating the Surface Burners t.

Place cooking utensil on surface burner.

Push the surface control knob in and turn counterclockwise out of the OFF position.

Release the knob and rotate to the LITE position.

Note: All four electronic surface ignitors will spark at the same time. However. only the burner you are turning on will ignite.

Visually check that the burner has lit.

Push the control knob in and turn counterclockwise to the desired flame size. The control knobs do not have to be set at a particular setting. 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 spark if the knob is left in the LITE position.)

Setting Proper Surface Burner 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 utensil used and the amount of food being cooked will influence the setting needed for cooking.

For deep fat frying: Use a thermometer & 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.

Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much food at once as the food will neither brown nor cook properly.

+Flame Size 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 on using medium-weight metal or aluminum cookware with lids. Settings may vary when using other types of cookware.

The color of the flame is the key to proper burner adjustment. good flame is clear. blue & nearly invisible in a well-lighted room. Each cone of flame should be steady & sharp. Adjust or clean burner if flame is yellow orange.

OVEN VENT Oven Vent Location

The oven vent is located below the backguard.

When the oven is on. warm air is released through this vent.

This venting is necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and good baking results.



Always use oven mitts when using the oven.
