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 (some models) is best used for simmering delicate food
items such as sauces, etc.
The standard burners can be used for most surface cooking needs. Some
models include a standard sized center burner (or 5th burner).
The POWER PLUS burner or burners (some models) are best used for bringing
large quantities of liquid to temperature and when preparing larger quantities of
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.
Operating the Gas Surface Burners:
1. Place cooking utensil on surface burner.
2. Push the surface control knob in and turn counterclockwise out of the
OFF position.
3. 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.
3. Visually check that the burner has lit.
4. 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
Formost 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.
*Flame Size
High Flame
Medium Flame
Low Flame
Type of Cooking
Start most foods; bring water to a boil; pan broiling.
Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces, gravies; steaming.
Keep foods cooking; poach; stewing.
Never extend theflame beyond the outer]
edge of the utensil. A higher flame simply /
wastes heat and energy, and increases /
your risk of being burned by the flame. J
For deep fat frying, use a thermometer and 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.
*These settings are based on using medium-weight metal or aluminum pans with lids. Settings may vary when
using other types of pans. The color of the flame is the key to proper burner adjustment. A good flame is clear, blue and
hardly visible in a well-lighted room. Each cone of flame should be steady and sharp. Adjust or clean burner if flame is
