Cooking Guidelines and Cookware

Cooking Guidelines

  • Never leave the cooktop unattended when in use.
  • Boil over causes smoking and greasy spills that may ignite.
  • Take care when deep-frying: oil or fat can overheat very quickly, particularly on a high setting.
  • Using a lid will reduce cooking times through retaining the heat.
  • Minimize the amount of liquid to reduce cooking times.

  • Use saucepans with thick flat bases.
  • Do not let large saucepans or frying pans overlap the bench, as this can deflect heat onto your countertop and damage its surface.
  • Always make sure saucepans are stable by centering them over the burner.
  • Make sure the size of the pan matches the size of the burner. A small pot on a large burner is not efficient.The following table shows the minimum and maximum saucepan base diameters that may be used on each burner:
