The range is designed so surface temperatures will not exceed maximum limitations set by the American National Standards Institute and other regulatory agencies. The range top may feel warm or even hot to the touch during use due to oven venting and cookware on the surface burners. There is no maximum temperature limitation specified for the horizontal cooking surface of an appliance.
The heat is increased if oversized cookware is used, trapping heat on the surface of the range. We recommend not using cookware that extends more than one inch beyond the burner dimensions. Also, we recommend only turning burners on "high" to initially heat food, then turning the temperature to "medium-high" or "medium" to maintain the heat.
