GROUNDED PLUG (120V Models Only)
As a safety feature, this product is equipped with a grounded plug, which will only fit
into a three-prong outlet. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature. Improper
connection of the grounding conductor may result in the risk of electric shock. Consult
a qualified electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded.
The use of an extension cord is not recommended. However, if it is absolutely
necessary, be sure that the cord is (1) No. 14 AWG minimum size and rated no less than
1875 watts; (2) UL Listed; (3) as short as possible (long cords can overheat, as well as
trip circuit breakers); (4) not used for operating more than one appliance at a time.
ASSEMBLE BEFORE FIRST USE
1. Place the Skillet Pan upside down on a table or counter and remove the screws. Be
sure the metal washers remain in place over the holes.
2. Position each Handle overhanging the edge of the counter for easier assembly so
that the holes in the Handles line up with the holes in the raised "mounting" area on
the bottom of the Skillet Pan.
NOTE: For models with the Tilt-Leg Feature, decide which side of the Pan you would
like to have raised (see "Tilt-Leg Feature"). We recommend installing the handle with
the tilt-leg on the control side so that juices will flow to the opposite end for easier
basting; however, you may choose either side.
3. Use the screws to secure the Handles to the Skillet Pan. DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN as it
may crack the Handles. Turn the Skillet Pan back over and place it on a flat, level
surface to be sure the Handles and Feet sit level.
