WARNING COOKTOP SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
? Never leave the surface units unattended at medium or high heat settings. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite.
? 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.
? 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 frying thermometer whenever possible to monitor oil temperature.
? 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.

WARNING COOKTOP SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (Cont.)
? When using glass/ceramic cookware, make sure it is suitable for cooktop service; others may break because of 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 fan on.
? If power is lost to an electric cooktop while a surface unit is ON, the surface unit will turn back on as soon as power is restored. In the event of power loss, failure to turn all surface unit knobs to the OFF position may result in ignition of items on or near the cooktop, leading to serious injury or death.
WARNING 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
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION 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 a ceramic cooktop cleaner and non-scratch
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.
WARNING OVEN SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
? Stand away from the range when opening the oven door. Hot air or steam which escapes can cause burns to hands, face and/or eyes.
? Do not use the oven if a heating element develops a glowing spot during use or shows other signs of damage. A glowing spot indicates the heating element may fail and present a potential burn, fire, or shock hazard. Turn the oven off immediately and have the heating element replaced by a qualified service technician.
? Keep the oven vent unobstructed.
? Keep the oven free from grease buildup. Grease in the oven may ignite.
? When using cooking or roasting bags in the oven, follow the manufacturers directions.
? 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.
? Never place cooking utensils, pizza or baking stone
