to prepare your batter (see "Recipes"). When the Signal Light goes out (from 5-8
minutes), the unit is ready.
3. Open the unit and pour about 1 cup of batter onto the lower cooking surface. Spread
the batter toward the edges using a rubber spatula for even waffles.
4. Carefully close the top. Keep hands away from the unit as steam may escape when
baking begins. The Signal Light will come back on and may cycle on and off during
baking. Cooking time is 3-5 minutes depending on the type of batter/ingredients you
used. The hinge between the sections is designed to be loose. This allows the waffle
to rise evenly and for steam to escape during baking. You may also notice steam
moisture on the sides or near the handle. This is normal. Avoid opening the unit
during baking cycle as it may cause the waffle to stick or bake poorly.
5. When waffles are done, the Signal Light will go out. Open the top and remove the
waffle using a rubber or wooden spatula. Be careful not to scratch the non-stick
finish. You may want to have a plate nearby when removing waffles in case they
separate as this unit is designed to semi-cut waffles into 4 sections. If sticking
occurs, lightly re-oil the cooking surfaces. You can make additional batches right
away — no need to let the unit cool down. Keep the lid closed between cooking
batches to preserve heat.
6. When all waffles are baked, turn the Control Knob to OFF, unplug the cord, open the
unit, and allow it to cool.
This versatile unit is designed for Open Grilling to prepare griddle-style foods such as
pancakes, eggs, or bacon strips, or Closed Grilling for hamburgers, hot dogs, or
sandwiches such as grilled cheese. See the charts for preparation.
1. Be sure the Cooking Grids are securely attached with the flat grill sides showing.
Close the unit and plug the cord into a standard electrical outlet.
2. Depending on the kind of food you're grilling (such as bacon or chops), you may want
to place a small can or container under the Grease Spouts at the corners to catch
grease or drippings from the built-in grease channel.
3. For Closed Grilling: turn the Control Knob to High and preheat the unit closed for 8-10
minutes until the Signal Light goes out. Use the charts to help you determine the best
setting, depending on the food. Open the unit, place the food on the lower Grid, and
close the Grill.
4. For Open Grilling: close the Grill and turn the Control Knob to High to preheat for 8-10
minutes until the Signal Light goes out. Use the charts to help you determine food
amounts and times. Open the Grill and pull straight up on the Top handle to release
the top grid. Turn and slowly lower
the Top Grid down so that it forms
a flat griddle-like cooking surface
across from the Bottom Grid (B). If
cooking on only one side, place
the food on the Bottom Grid.
Watch and turn food as needed.
To keep food warm while serving,
turn the Control Knob to LOW.
5. When finished grilling, turn the
Control Knob to OFF, unplug the
cord, open the unit, and allow it to
CARE AND CLEANING
1. Unplug and allow the unit to COOL completely before cleaning. DO NOT IMMERSE
THE UNIT nor run water directly onto the cooking surfaces.
2. Unclip the Grids and wash them in hot, soapy water. Rinse and dry thoroughly. DO
NOT PLACE THEM IN A DISHWASHER. Do not use steel wool pads or other abrasive
cleaners on the cooking surfaces as they may damage the non-stick coating. To
remove cooked-on food, use a plastic bristle brush or nylon mesh pad. Be sure to
clean the handles after each use.
3. Clean the outside surfaces by wiping with a damp sponge or cloth. Dry thoroughly
with a soft cloth. Do not use harsh or abrasive cleaners. Never spray or apply
cleaners directly to the unit; instead, apply the cleaner to a cloth and rub on. Rubbing
a soft dry cloth or paper towel over the chrome surface after cleaning will restore the
shine. Cleaning the outside surfaces after each use will prevent grease from burning
onto the chrome and discoloring it.
NOTE: If the power supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer
or its service agent or a similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
