15.Do not use appliance for other than intended use.
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than
the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug
is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way.
If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the
plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician.
Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way. If the plug fits loosely
into the AC outlet or if the AC outlet feels warm do not use that outlet.
This appliance is for HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY.
No user-serviceable parts inside. Do not attempt to service this product.
A short power supply cord is provided to reduce the hazards resulting from
entanglement or tripping over a longer cord. AN EXTENSION CORD MAY
BE USED WITH CARE; HOWEVER, THE MARKED ELECTRICAL RATING
SHOULD BE AT LEAST AS GREAT AS THE ELECTRICAL RATING OF THE
GRIDDLE. The extension cord should not be allowed to drape over the
counter or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.
ELECTRIC POWER: If electric circuit is overloaded with other appliances,
griddle may not operate properly. Griddle must be operated on a separate
circuit from other operating appliances.
CAUTION: Some countertops are more sensitive to heat, use care not to
place griddle on surfaces where heat may cause damage.
HOW TO USE YOUR ELECTRIC GRIDDLE
Before use, wash the GRIDDLE PLATE and LID in warm soapy water or in
the dishwasher and dry completely.
CAUTION: Do not immerse HEATING BASE in water or other liquids.
1. Set the skillet on a flat, dry, heat resistant surface.
2. Make sure that the GRIDDLE PLATE is sitting securely on the HEATING
BASE. The GRIDDLE PLATE should be snapped into place on the
HEATING BASE. Insert the left side of the plate into the left notch. Push
right spring latch outward and press the plate down. Release the spring
so plate is securely latched to HEATING BASE. Condition the non-stick
cooking surface with vegetable oil, wiping off any excess with a paper
towel. If GRIDDLE PLATE is not secured on HEATING BASE the griddle
may not work properly.
3. Insert GREASE TRAY into guides
under the front of the griddle. Turn
TEMPERATURE CONTOL DIAL to
"OFF". Plug griddle into standard 120V
AC outlet and turn TEMPERATURE
CONTROL DIAL to desired setting.
NOTE: Due to manufacturing process,
during initial use of this appliance, some slight smoke and/or odor may
be detected. This is normal with many heating appliances and will not
recur after a few uses.
KNOW YOUR ELECTRIC GRIDDLE
The TEMPERATURE CONTROL PANEL is affixed to the front of the
griddle for fast and easy access to set and adjust the temperature.
1. When setting the temperature, align the desired temperature setting
on the dial with the indicator light. The indicator light is a power
indicator light and will remain on while cooking.
2. Preheat the griddle for approximately 10 minutes before use. When
cooking is complete, turn TEMPERATURE CONTROL DIAL to "OFF"
by aligning with the indicator light. The indicator light will then turn
off. Unplug the cord from the outlet and allow unit to cool before
removing the griddle plate or cleaning.
WARM is recommended for keeping already hot, fully cooked food at the
perfect serving temperature. We do not recommend using the WARM
setting for more than 4 hours.
NOTE: It may be necessary to scrape grease into the grease TRAY. Always
use wooden or nylon utensils to avoid scratching the non-stick cooking
CAUTION: Grease may be hot!
note: When cooking consecutive batches of bacon or other high fat foods,
it may be necessary to empty the grease tray to avoid grease overflowing
onto the countertop.
