Grill & wafflebaker
Hide thumbs



When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be
followed, including the following:
Read all instructions.
Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
To protect against a risk of electric shock, do not immerse cord, plug, or the
electrical base of the grill/wafflebaker in water or other liquid.
Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near
Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to cool before
Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the
appliance malfunctions or is dropped or damaged in any manner. Return the
appliance to the nearest authorized service facility for examination, repair, or
electrical or mechanical adjustment. Or, call the appropriate toll-free number
listed on the cover of this manual.
The use of attachments not recommended by the appliance manufacturer
may cause fire, electric shock or injury.
Do not use outdoors.
Do not allow cord to hang over the edge of table or counter or touch hot
surfaces including the stove.
Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner or in a heated oven.
Use extreme caution when moving an appliance containing hot oil or other
hot liquids.
To use, plug cord into electrical outlet. To disconnect, grasp plug and remove
from outlet. Do not yank on cord.
Do not use appliance for other than intended use.
Do not operate in the presence of explosive and/or flammable fumes.
This appliance is intended for household use only, not for commercial or
industrial use. Use for anything other than intended will void the warranty.
POLARIZED PLUG (120V Models Only)
This appliance has a polarized plug — one blade is wider than the other. To reduce the
risk of electric shock, this plug will fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug
does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse it. If it still does not fit fully, contact a qualified
electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature by modifying the plug in any way.
The cord length of this appliance was selected to reduce safety hazards that may occur
with a longer cord. If more cord length is needed, an extension cord with a polarized
plug may be used. It should be rated not less than 10 amperes, 120 Volts, or 6
amperes/220 volts and have the appropriate agency listing. When using a longer cord,
be sure it does not drape over a working area or dangle where it could be pulled on or
tripped over. Handle cord carefully for longer life; avoid jerking or straining it at outlet
and appliance connections.

How To Use
1. Remove the Cooking Grids by pressing down on the Grid Clips at the front of the unit
and sliding the Grids forward and out. Wash them in hot, sudsy water, rinse, dry
thoroughly, and replace them in the unit. When replacing the Grids, be sure the lip of
each grid fits into the notch at the back of the unit and that each is securely clipped
into place before plugging in and operating. Grids should have matching surfaces.
2. IMPORTANT: Condition the non-stick cooking surfaces with a light coating of cooking
oil before first use. Do not use non-stick cooking spray to "condition." Brush the oil
onto the cooking surfaces or wipe on with a paper towel. Be sure to coat the cooking
surfaces as this will reduce sticking. Wipe off excess oil with paper towels. The first
waffle may absorb excess oil and appear
greasy. If so, discard it.
1. Be sure the Cooking Grids are securely
attached with the waffle sides showing.
Close the unit and plug the cord into a
standard electrical outlet.
2. Turn the Control Knob to WAFFLES. The
Signal Light (A) will come on to indicate
the unit is heating. Use the pre-heat time
