Induction cooktops and ranges offer you a whole new way to cook.
What are the benefits of Induction?
Induction cooking directly heats the pan; heating will only begin when cookware is properly placed on the cooking zones.
Fast and efficient - Induction cooking zones heat faster and use less energy. Induction power levels are quick to boil and they are efficient when simmering.
A cooler cooktop - A unique feature of the induction cooking zones is, whether it is turned on or off, the cooking zones remain cooler than radiant type elements. Virtually no wasted heat is produced since the heat begins with the presence of cookware.
Easy cleanups - The cooler cooking zones make cleanup easier. Spills resist sticking or burning so they wipe up easily.
Magnetic detector - The cooking zone has a sensor that automatically detects whether cookware is magnetic. This will reduce accidental “turn-ons.”
Pan size detection - The pan size recognition sensor automatically detects and adapts the induction cooking zones to the pan sizes in use for consistent, more even cooking.
More responsive - Induction cooking zones are more responsive than their electric or gas counterparts because only the pan heats. This type of cooking heats easier and will be just as responsive when reducing to a simmer.

What type of cookware do I use with Induction?
For the best possible surface cooking results, it is recommended to only use high quality heavy gauge cookware on the induction cooking zones. Be sure to follow all the manufacturer’s recommendations when using cookware made for induction cooking. To check if the cookware base material is suitable, use a magnet to test. If a magnet sticks to the bottom of the cookware, the material type is correct. The most common induction cookware types available are:
Stainless steel - Generally excellent for induction cooking plus it is durable, easy to clean and resists staining. However, it is important to note that not all stainless steel is magnetic.
Cast iron - Good for induction cooking. Cooks evenly. Do not slide cast iron cookware on cooktop. Cast iron cookware with a rough surface will scratch ceramic cooktop.
Porcelain-enamel coated metals - Heating characteristics will vary depending on quality of base material. Porcelain-enamel coating must be smooth to avoid scratching the ceramic cooktop.

How do I know what power level to use on my induction cooktop surface?
If you were accustom to using Low, Medium or High settings, we want help you become familiar with the settings on your Induction range.
Here is quick easy guide to help you but feel free to refer to your Owner’s Manual for more information and tips.
Can I “mute” the audible tones on my appliance?
The option to silent audible tones may not be applicable on all models so you want to check your Owner’s Manual.
For applicable models - When selecting a function on your display, an audible tone is heard each time a key is pressed. If you desire, the display can be programmed for silent operation.
To set the controls for silent operation:
To return your audible tones to normal operation:
Measure the width, depth & height of opening. For clean access the door should be able to open 90 degrees or more.
Many retailers have haul-away programs if they deliver your new range. Check to see what retailers offer and have a plan when you’ve selected a new range.
Check the doorways to ensure your range can easily get into your home. Measure from the stops on each side since those are the closest contact points.
