Other Consumer Safety Information
This appliance is intended for household use only.
The length of the cord used on this appliance was selected to reduce the hazards of becoming
tangled in, or tripping over a longer cord. If a longer cord is necessary an approved extension
cord may be used. The electrical rating of the extension cord must be equal to or greater than
the rating of the percolator. Care must be taken to arrange the extension cord so that it will not
drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or accidentally
tripped over.
To avoid an electrical circuit overload, do not use another high wattage appliance on the same
circuit with your percolator.
To reduce risk of electrical shock, do not immerse the percolator in water.
