Each burner has its own electronic igniter that sparks when the burner is turned on. Each burner should light in 4 seconds or less.

If a burner does not light. check to see that the burner cap is positioned correctly on the burner base.

Burner Cap Placement

The burner caps must be properly placed on the burner bases for the cooktop to function properly.

If a burner cap is not properly placed. one or more of the following problems may occur:

Burner flames are too high.

Flames shoot out of the burners.

Burners do not ignite.

Burner flames light unevenly.

Section 4: USING THE COOKTOP

AUTOMATIC RE=IGNITION

If any one or more burners blow out. the electronic igniter automatically activates to re light the flame.

Do not touch the burners when the igniters are active.

Important:

For proper combustion do not use the cooktop without the burner grates in place.

There is a slight sound associated with gas combustion and ignition.

This is a normal condition.

On cooktops using propane gas (LP). a slight "pop" sound may be heard at the burner ports a few seconds after the burner has been turned off.

POWER FAILURE

In the event of a power failure. only the standard burners can be manually lit. It is necessary to light each one individually. If the cooktop is being used when the power failure occurs. turn all knobs to the OFF position.

The standard burners can be lit by holding match at the ports and turning the control knob

The ExtraLow burners cannot be used during a power failure.

Be sure to turn them off.

If an ExtraLow burner is on when a power failure occurs. it cannot be turned back on until the knob is first turned off.

The griddle cannot be used during a power failure.

If you smell gas. refer to safety precautions in the front of this manual.

WARNING

In the event of a power failure. all knobs are to be turned to the OFF Position.

Only the standard burners can be lit manually.

FLAME HEIGHT

The correct flame height depends on 1) size and material of pan being used; 2) food being cooked; and 3) amount of liquid in the pan.

Never extend the flame beyond the base of the pan.

Use a low or medium flame for pan materials that conduct the heat slowly. such as porcelain coated steel or glass-ceramic.

Cookware Recommendations

WARNING:

To avoid risk of serious injury. damage to appliance or cookware. please observe the following:

Bakeware. such as large casserole pans. cookie sheets. etc. should never be used on the cooktop.

Placement of large stock pots should be staggered when used on the cooktop.

Professional quality pans with metal handles are recommended because plastic handles can melt or blister if the flame extends up the side of the pan.

Professional quality pans are found at res taurant supply stores and gourmet specialty shops.

All cookware should have these charac teristics: good heat conductivity. good balance. correctly sized base diameter. a heavy. flat base. and a proper fitting lid.

For best cooking results. the flame should be contained under the bottom of the pan.

(51 mm)

Base Diameter

Select the base diameter to match the diameter of the flame.

The diameter of the flame should be

Oversize or under size pans sacrifice cooking performance. 5-1/2" (140 mm) base size is generally the smallest recommended.

. .. 1. 4.

Balanced Pan

Balance is important for stability and even cooking.

The handle must not be heavier than the pan and tilt it unevenly.

A pan must sit level on the grate without rocking or wobbling.

Food packaged in aluminum foil should not be placed directly on the burner grate. Aluminum foil can melt during cooking.

Do not let plastic. paper or cloth come in contact with a hot burner grate.

They may melt or catch fire.

Never let a pan boil dry. This can damage your pan and the cooking surface.

Aluminum and copper are pan materials that conduct the heat quickly and evenly.

These met als are sometimes attached to the base or in the core between stainless steel.

III jiiii ii 4"4"4"1

Flat Base Pan

A heavy. flat base is more apt to remain flat when heated.

Pan bases that are warped. dented. ridged ortoo lightweight will heat unevenly.

Heat and cool pans gradually to avoid sudden temperature changes which tend to distort cookware.

Do not add cold water to a hot pan.

Canning Tips:

A flat base pan is preferred to one with a con cave. convex or rippled base.

Flat-bottom Wok Pan

When using two canners at the same time. use staggered burners.

Do not block air to the burn ers. A flame needs the right amount of air for complete combustion.

Use a cover on a canner when bringing the contents to a boil.

Once the contents have reached a boil on HI. use

Canning produces a large amount of steam.

Take precautions to prevent burns.

COOKING Recommendations

Suggestions for Using the Recommendations Use the recommendations on Pages 13 and 14 as a guide.

The settings you use will vary depending on the pans selected and the starting temperature of the food.

In the recommendations. the "Finish Setting" has been separated for the standard and ExtraLow burners.

There may or may not be a change between the two burner settings.

The ExtraLow setting can be either a cooking or a holding setting.

Raise or lower the flame setting gradually.

Allow time for the pan and the food to adjust to the new setting.
