fromsteamor heat.Canning
shouldonlybe doneon surface
units.See “Home CanningTips”
in thisbook.
Q. Can I covermy drip pans
withfoil?
A. No. Cleanas recommendedin
CleaningGuide.
Q. CanI use specialcooking
equipment,like an orientalwok
on any surfaceunits?
A. Cookwarewithoutflat surfaces
is notrecommended.The life of
yoursurfaceunit can be shortened
e
and the cooktopcan be damaged
rom the high heat neededfor this “
pe of cooking.
Q. Whyam I not gettingthe heat
I needfrommy units even
thoughI have the knobson the

SafetyTipsforF~ing
Q. Whydoes my cookwaretilt
when ~placeit on thesuflace
unit?

flat. Makesure thatthe “feet” on
your surfaceunitsare sitting
tightlyin the cooktopindentation
and the drip pan is flat on the
cooktopsurface.
Q. Why is the porcelainfinishon
my cookwarecomingo~
A. If you set your surfaceunit
higherthanrequiredfor the

the finishmay smoke,crack,pop,
or bum dependingon the pot or

with water-bathor pressurecanner,

ObserveFollowingPoin6
in Canning
1. Be surecannerfits overcenter
of the surfaceunit.If yourcooktop
or its locationdoesnot allow
cannerto be centeredon surface
unit,use smalleradiameterpots for
goodcanningresults.
2. Flat-bottomedcannersmust be
used.Do not use cannerswith
flangedor rippledbottoms(often
foundin enamelware)becausethey
don’tmakeenoughcontactwith
the surfaceunitand taketoo long
to boil water.
RIGHT
WRONG
CAUT1ON:
Safemnning requiresthat
harmfil microorganhm are
destroyedand that thejars are
sealedcompletely,Whencanning
foods in a water-bathcanner,a
gentlebut steadyboil m~t be
maintainedcontinuouslyfor the
requiredtime.Whencanning
foodsin a pressurecanner,the
pressuremustbe maintained
continuouslyfor the required
time.
Afteryou haveadjustedthe
controls,it is veryimportantto
makesure the prescribedboilor
pressurelevelsare maintined
for the requiredtime.
3. Whencanning,use recipes
and proceduresfrom reputable
sources.Reliablerecipesand
proceduresare availablehorn
the manufacturerof yourcanner;
manufacturersof glassjars for
canning,such as Ball and Ker,
and the UnitedStatesDepartment
of AgricultureExtensionService.
4. Rememberthatcanningis a
processthat generateslarge
amountsof steam.Toavoidbums
fi-omsteamor heat,be careful
whencanning.
NOTE:If yourcooktopis being
operatedon low power(voltage),
canningmay takelongerthan
expected,even thoughdirections
havebeencarefully”followed.The
processtime willbe shortenedby:
(1) usinga pressurecanner,and
(2) startingwith HOTtap waterfor
