Care and Cleaning
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
COOkTOP SAFETY INSTRuCTIONS
? Never leave the surface units unattended at medium or high heat settings. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may catch on fire.
? Never leave oil unattended while frying. If allowed to heat beyond its smoking point, oil may ignite, resulting in fire that may spread to surrounding cabinets. Use a deep fat thermometer whenever possible to monitor oil temperature.
? To avoid oil spillover and fire, use a minimum amount of oil when shallow pan-frying and avoid cooking frozen foods with excessive amounts of ice.
? Use proper pan sizeselect cookware having flat bottoms large enough to cover the surface 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. earthenware or other glazed containers are suitable for cooktop service; others may break because of the sudden change in temperature.
? 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.
? When preparing flaming foods under a hood, turn the
RADIANT COOkTOP SAFETY INSTRuCTIONS
? Use care when touching the cooktop. The glass surface of the cooktop will retain heat after the controls have been turned off.
? Do not cook on a broken cooktop. If glass cooktop should break, cleaning solutions and spillovers may penetrate the broken cooktop and create a risk of electric shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately.
? Avoid scratching the glass cooktop. The cooktop can be scratched with items such as knives, sharp instruments, rings or other jewelry and rivets on
? Do not place or store items that can melt or catch fire on the glass cooktop, even when it is not being used. If the cooktop is inadvertently turned on, they may ignite. Heat from the cooktop or oven vent after it is turned off may cause them to ignite also.
? Use CERAMA BRYTE ceramic Cooktop Cleaner and
CERAMA BRYTE Cleaning Pad to clean the cooktop.
Wait until the cooktop cools and the indicator light goes out before cleaning. A wet sponge or cloth on a hot surface can cause steam burns. Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface. Note: Sugar spills are an exception.
They should be scraped off while still hot using an oven mitt and a scraper. See the Cleaning the glass cooktop section for detailed instructions.
? Read and follow all instructions and warnings on the cleaning cream label.
COIl COOkTOP SAFETY INSTRuCTIONS
? Do not immerse or soak the removable surface units.
? Only certain types of glass, glass/ceramic,
Do not put them in a dishwasher. Do not self-clean the surface units in an oven. Doing so may cause them to fail, presenting a burn or fire hazard.
? To avoid the possibility of a burn or electric shock, always be certain that the controls for all surface units are at the OFF position and all coils are cool before attempting to lift or remove a coil surface unit.
? Be sure the drip pans are not covered and are in place. Their absence during cooking could damage range parts and wiring.
? Do not use aluminum foil to line the drip pans. Foil can trap heat or melt, resulting in damage to the product and a shock or fire hazard.
OVEN SAFETY INSTRuCTIONS
? Stand away from the range when opening the oven
? Pull the oven rack to the stop-lock position when loading and unloading food from the oven. This helps prevent burns from touching hot surfaces of the door and oven walls.
? Do not leave items such as paper, cooking utensils or food in the oven when not in use. Items stored in an oven can ignite.
? Do not use aluminum foil to line the oven bottom. Foil can trap heat or melt, resulting in damage to the product and a shock or fire hazard.
SElF-ClEANING OVEN SAFETY INSTRuCTIONS
? Before operating the self-clean cycle, remove pans, shiny metal oven racks and other utensils from the oven. Only gray porcelain-coated oven racks may be left in the oven. Do not use self-clean to clean other parts, such as drip pans or bowls.
? Before operating the self-clean cycle, wipe grease and food soils from the oven. Excessive amount of grease may ignite, leading to smoke damage to your home.
? If the self-cleaning
