    A:  Cooktop is induction. Oven is radiant.

      A:  Guessing here, but I believe that "induction" and "induction radiant" are two ways of saying the same thing -- i.e., that the cooktop burners are induction burners. It's the pan, not the burner, that gets hot. Heat radiates through the pan. (However, the stovetop will become warm from the pan -- even somewhat hot if you're cooking at a higher temperature -- but not as hot as an electric burner will get. As a result, an induction stovetop is significantly easier to clean than a glass top stovetop with electric burners. Spilled food is far less apt to get baked on.)

            A:  In my experience, the induction motors tend to degrade over a period of a 3-5 years (on my Kenmore). One hasn't actually failed me, but one was replaced by the manufacturer (there were 2 motors -- each servicing 2 burners) for having slowed down. The other is over 5 years old. Over the years, they have gotten louder and a bit slower. My strong recommendation: Pay for an extended service contract. One failure will pay for the contract and, alas, based on my limited experience, that failure is somewhat likely.

              Q:Can I use a griddle across 2 burners on this range?

              A:  Hi, gramB! We don't recommend using a griddle across two burners, as it could cause uneven cooking. ~ Brandi

                A:  No.

                by|Nov 25, 2019

                  A:  If a magnet will stick to the griddle, I believe so. Given that the griddle itself has its molecules excited to produce the heat, it's even possible that one burner will do the trick for the entire griddle. Best bet, check with the manufacturer.

                    Q:Can you cook outside of the burners, meaning that you can cook on every inch of the range surface?

                    Answer This Question

                    A:  No. Pans need to be roughly centered over the "burner" to pick up the induced current from the magnet. Pan size can vary somewhat, but a 12" skillet will only heat "directly" according to the burner size. The entire bottom will eventually heat from diffused heat.

                    by|Oct 2, 2019

                      A:  No.

                        A:  Hiya, Penguins1. Thank you for your inquiry. Based on the engineering design of our Frigidaire 30 in. 5.4 cu. ft. Induction Range, you will not be able to cook outside of the burners. The induction cooking zone uses an electromagnet to induce heat in iron or steel cookware. Below each cooking zone on an induction cooktop, there is a copper coil. When the cooking zone is turned on, the electricity turns the coil into a type of magnet that heats metal cookware on the cooktop. Hope this helps. If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact us at 888 203 1389. Our Customer Care Team is available Monday through Friday from 8am-8pm EST and Saturday from 9am-6pm EST. Regards-Derrick

                          A:  Gigi- Cookware made from aluminum, copper or glass, including Pyrex will not work on its own. Induction cookware must be made of a magnetic-based material, such as cast iron or magnetic stainless steel. Hope this helps.

                            A:  Does a magnet stick to the pan? If so, yes. Cast iron pans are normally ideal. I just don't know whether the enamel coating will get in the way of the induction. If you really want to know, bring one of the pans with you along with some water to a store that has an induction range hooked up. Ask if you can put some water into the pan to test out the induction. You're likely to see the water at a full boil within 90 seconds in a quart-sized pan.

                              A:  As long as the utensil is magnetic you can use it.

                                A:  The copper cookwear would need to have a ferrous contact point that would react with the induction element in the cooktop.

                                  A:  Copper doesn't work. I am going to polish all my expensive copper pans and put them on display. A good way to test for an induction pan is to see if a magnet sticks to the bottom. Must be iron or steel.

                                      A:  Not unless you drag a cast iron pan across it. It does have to be treated with a little more care than a non-glass top stove. I found the cleaner you keep the bottom of your pans, the easier it is to keep the stove looking like new. There are also special cleaners and polish for these stoves.

                                        A:  Hi, Gigi. Thanks for contacting us. Consistent and proper cleaning is essential to maintaining the ceramic glass cooktop. Prior to using the cooktop for the first time, apply a ceramic cooktop cleaning cream (available in most hardware, grocery, and department stores) to the ceramic surface. Clean and buff with a clean paper towel. This will make cleaning easier when soiled from cooking. Cooktop cleaning creams leave a protective finish on the glass to help prevent scratches and abrasions. Hope this helps. Should you have any additional questions, please contact us at 888 203 1389.

                                            A:  When you remove a pan, the burner stops producing a magnetic field until a pan is sensed again but the burner doesn't shut off in the sense that when you put that pan back down on the cook top, it resumes cooking. For example, you remove the pan and walk over to your chopping board to put more stuff into sauté, when you return the pan to the cooktop, your cooking resumes. There may be a timed shut-off if you wait too long- just not sure about that-- not covered in the "Use&Care" guide that I could find.

                                              A:  Hi, Mtnative68. Because this is induction, the burners will stop heating when you remove the pan. If no cookware is detected, a code will flash. After three minutes of no cookware on the burner, it will automatically shut off. ~ Brandi
