A Few Range Tips
If you purchase an electric range with a glass cooktop, you may have to replace your cooking pots and pans as well. For these typed of elements it is critical the bottom surface of these utensils be absolutely flat.
When using foil inside the oven to help keep it clean, keep it at least one inch from any electric element. The foil can reflect the heat back to the element causing overheating and premature failure. It is not recommended to use foil in the oven by most manufacturers.
Self-clean your oven frequently to ensure grease doesn’t build up to the point of causing a fire or smoking so badly it sets off the smoke detector when eventually cleaned.
If you notice a “hot spot” on your electric range surface or oven element, replace it before it fails.
You can clean any porcelain cooktop with a non-abrasive cleanser
Note: Don't pour the cleanser directly onto the cooktop. Instead, put some cleaner on a soft, damp rag, then wipe the surface.
NEVER use oven cleaners on continuous-clean ovens, as they will clog the pores in the coating, and, may damage the coating, or the aluminum backing if it is used.
