Details how to start cooking, information on the hot surface indicators, and what to do upon finishing cooking.
To start cooking
  • Turn the control dial of the cooking zone you wish to use to the High setting, then adjust as necessary.
  • When using dual cooking zones, you may choose to use the inner zone only (Screen Shot 2017-06-21 at 12.03.53 PM.png) or the full dual cooking zone (Screen Shot 2017-06-21 at 12.04.08 PM.png).
  • Some models have a cooking zone with a unique SuperSimmer feature. This special, low turndown range is excellent for the most delicate cooking tasks, like melting chocolate or simmering soups and stews.
  • For further advice on cooking and using the SuperSimmer feature, see ‘Cooking guidelines’ following.
