SURFACE CONTROLS Using Proper Cookware The size and type of cookware used will influence the setting needed for best cooking results. Be sure to follow the recommendations for using proper cookware as illustrated in Figure 1 and Figure 2. Cookware should have flat bottoms that make good contact with the entire surface heating element. Check for flatness by rotating a ruler across the bottom of the cookware (See Figure 1). Figure 1: Flat bottom and straight sides. • Tight fitting lids.
SURFACE CONTROLS Home Canning Be sure to read and observe all the following points when home canning with your appliance: CAUTION • Use only quality flat bottom canners when home canning.

Always raise the lid to vent steam away from you. • Use only a completely flat bottom canner with no ridges that radiate from the bottom center when home canning.
SURFACE CONTROLS Operating Surface Elements IMPORTANT To operate surface elements: Do not allow aluminum foil, or any material that can melt to make contact with the surface element. CAUTION Surface elements may appear to have cooled after they have been turned off. The element surface may still be hot and burns may occur if the element or the area surrounding the element is touched before it has cooled sufficiently.
BEFORE SETTING OVEN CONTROLS Type of oven racks Oven vent location The oven vent is located through the upper front trim and visible when the oven door is open.
