Operation of Surface Units
When operating the surface unit, use the control
knob or thermostat setting at maximum heat only to heat
food to cooking temperature or to bring water to a boil,
then reduce the control knob setting to the heat required
by the food being cooked. Using more heat than
necessary is not only a waste of power but produces
inferior food. Do not leave the surface unit turned on
when not in use. When steaming food, keep cooking
utensils covered. The food will stick and burn if left
uncovered and power will be wasted.

To clean the oven compartment use the procedures
recommended by the manufacturers technical manual
