DO NOT THROW AWAY THESE INSTRUCTIONS

APPLIANCE DESCRIPTION

(Fig. 1)
APPLIANCE DESCRIPTION

  1. Top housing/kernel cap
  2. Popping chamber
  3. Appliance body
  4. ON/OFF switch
  5. Transparent lid

HOW TO OPERATE

  • Before using for the first time, clean the inside and outside part of the appliance and the popping chamber (B) with a non-abrasive, damp sponge or cloth. Wipe thoroughly.
    Note: Make sure the top housing (E) is securely attached to the appliance body (C) before starting.
  • Place the appliance on a stable surface by a power socket. Make sure the cord is away from any water source.
  • Prepare the popcorn making ingredients: corn, seasoning, bowls or bags to collect the popcorn.
  • Plug the appliance into a power socket after making sure that the switch (D) is set to "OFF".
  • Remove the kernel cap (A).
  • Turn the appliance on by setting the switch (D) on the appliance body (C) to "ON". Allow the appliance run for about 2 minutes to heat the popping chamber (B) up.
  • While the popping chamber is heating, fill the kernel cap (A) up to the marked level which corresponds approximately to 60 g of corn kernels (Fig. 2).
    HOW TO OPERATE
  • Turn the appliance off by rotating the switch (D) to the "OFF" position.
  • Place a suitable container underneath the top housing (E) to collect the popcorn.
  • Put corn previously prepared into the popping chamber (B) and refit the kernel cap (A) on the chamber.
  • Turn the appliance on by setting the switch (D) to "ON". After approximately 40/50 seconds, hot popcorn will begin to come out from the housing opening (E) and into the bowl.
  • Once popping is finished, turn the appliance off by rotating the switch (D) onto the "OFF" position and unplug it from the power socket.
  • Tip the appliance forward to make sure all popcorn is out of the popper.


By overloading the appliance with more than 60 g corn, the popcorn at the bottom could burn as it cannot come out.
Do not remove the transparent lid (E) when machine is on. If the transparent lid (E) is removed while the appliance is working, it would continue working and the user could be injured by the hot air.
Do not use the appliance continuously for over 10 minutes and leave it to cool for at least 15 minutes between every popping session.

HELPFUL TIPS

The appliance is designed for all regular and premium brands of popping corn. Yellow corn generally pops better than white corn.
When filling the kernel cap (A) with approximately 60 g corn, make sure to not fill above or below the marked line. Underfilling can cause fewer kernels to pop and more unpopped kernels to come out of the unit. Overfilling can cause popped corn to burn and smoke, as it will over fill the popping chamber (B).


Never put any seasoning or oil in the popping chamber (B). Season popcorn only after removing it from the appliance.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE


Let the appliance cool completely or at least 15 minutes from switching off before cleaning it.

  • Remove the top housing (E) and the kernel cap (A) from the appliance body (C).
  • Clean the inside and outside part of the appliance body (C) and the popping chamber (B) with a nonabrasive, damp sponge or cloth. Wipe thoroughly.
  • Wash the housing (E) and the kernel cap (A) with hot, soapy water by using a non-abrasive sponge or cloth and wipe thoroughly.
  • Reassemble the appliance and store.


Never place any part in the dishwasher. Always wash by hand.
