French Top

The French top is a graduated cooking surface with the highest temperature under the center plate. Always use cookware, do not cook food directly on the surface. For higher cooking heat, place cookware closer to the center and for lower heat, closer to the edges. Refer to the illustration below.

To protect the surface from food splatters and moisture, it is necessary to “season” the French top prior to use.

Season the French Top:

  1. The French top has a protective coating that must be removed before use. Use hot water and mild detergent to remove. Rinse and dry.
  2. Turn on ventilation.
  3. Push and turn the control knob counterclockwise to HI and heat for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, turn the knob to OFF and allow the surface to cool.
  4. While the surface is slightly warm, pour a small amount of peanut or vegetable oil on a paper towel and spread evenly. Once cool, wipe off any excess oil.

French Top Operation
