Safety Instructions

Use care when touching the cooktop. The glass surface of the cooktop will retain heat after the controls have been turned off.

Keep an eye on foods being fried at high or medium high heat settings.

Foods for frying should be as dry as possible. Frost on frozen foods or moisture on fresh foods can cause hot fat to bubble up and over the sides of the pan.

Use little fat for effective shallow or deep fat frying. Filling the pan too full of fat can cause spillovers when food is added.

If a combination of oils or fats will be

used in frying, stir together before heating, or as fats melt slowly.

Always heat fat slowly, and watch as it heats.

Use a deep fat thermometer whenever possible to prevent overheating fat beyond the smoking point.

Avoid scratching the glass cooktop.

The cooktop can be scratched with items such as sharp instruments, rings or other jewelry, and rivets on clothing.

Do not operate the radiant surface units if the glass is broken. Spillovers or cleaning solution may penetrate a broken cooktop and create a risk of electrical shock. Contact a qualified technician immediately should your glass cooktop become broken.

Never use the glass cooktop surface as a cutting board.

Do not place or store items that can melt or catch fire on the glass cooktop, even when it is not being used.

Be careful when placing spoons or other stirring utensils on glass cooktop surface when it is in use. They may become hot and could cause burns.

Clean the cooktop with caution. If a wet sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot surface unit, be careful to avoid steam burns. Some cleaners can produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface.

NOTE: We recommend that you avoid wiping any surface unit areas until they have cooled and the indicator light has gone off. Sugar spills are the exception

to this. Please see the Cleaning the glass cooktop section.

When the cooktop is cool, use only CERAMA BRYTE® Ceramic Cooktop Cleaner and the CERAMA BRYTE® Cleaning Pad to clean the cooktop.

To avoid possible damage to the cooking surface, do not apply cleaning cream to the glass surface when it is hot.

After cleaning, use a dry cloth or paper towel to remove all cleaning cream residue.

Read and follow all instructions and warnings on the cleaning cream labels.

Large scratches or impacts to glass doors or cooktops can lead to broken or shattered glass.

Do not leave any items on the cooktop. The hot air from the vent may ignite flammable items and will increase pressure in closed containers, which may cause them to burst.

Do not leave plastic or flammable items on the cooktop—they may melt or ignite if left too close to the vent.

Do not lift the cooktop. Lifting the cooktop can lead to damage and improper operation of the range.
