Connecting to Power

Before switching on make sure that the voltage of your electricity supply is the same as that indicated on the rating plate.

(UK ONLY): The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:


This appliance complies with European Economic Community Directive 89/336/EEC.


For packing purposes the handle is not fitted to the lid. To fit the handle:

  1. Undo the screw.
  2. Place handle centrally over the hole in the top of the lid.
  3. Invert the lid and handle and fix together by means of the screw assembly. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.

Prior to using this appliance for the first time, wash the grill plate, base, lid and drip tray in accordance with the instructions given under the Cleaning section. Dry thoroughly and then lightly brush the surface of the grill plate with cooking oil.

Place the drip tray into the base, then place the grill plate onto the drip tray. Never use the grill plate directly on the work surface, always use with the drip tray and base.
Insert the power supply connector into the grill plate, then connect to the power supply and switch on. Turn the temperature control to the desired setting: the higher the number the hotter the temperature. When the Health Grill reaches this temperature, the light will go out and cooking can commence. (During cooking, the light will go on and off indicating that the selected temperature is being maintained).

This appliance should only be used on a heat resistant and easy to wipe clean surface.

Cooking Guide

The following temperature settings and times are a guide only and will vary according to individual preferences and the size/thickness of the food being cooked. With use you will become familiar with the time and setting needed to cook the food to your own requirements. Some thicker items of food in particular pork and chicken, which should be thoroughly cooked, may benefit from being pre-cooked in an oven or microwave before being placed on the grill.
The Health Grill has two cooking areas. The flat plate is most suitable for cooking fried eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms whereas the grills are suitable for cooking meat such as beefburgers, chops and steaks.

Fish steaks 12 15 minutes
Prawns 12 6-10 minutes
Chicken - Drumstick 12 35-40 minutes
Boneless chicken breast 12 25-30 minutes

Hints On Use

  • Tender cuts of meat are more suitable for grilling and are therefore best used on the Health Grill. It is best to avoid cooking tough cuts of meat.
  • Best results are obtained by cooking foods of a uniform thickness. Thinner items of food are preferable to thick items as thick items may take a long time to cook through to the centre which may result in the outside overcooking.
  • During cooking the food should be turned frequently to ensure even cooking. Take care as some spitting may occur during cooking.
  • Food placed directly above the element may brown and cook more quickly than food elsewhere on the grill. Therefore moving the position of the food on the grill will help to ensure even cooking.
  • Always turn and remove food from the Health Grill using utensils that will not scratch the non stick surface. Items made of wood and heat resistant plastic are ideal.
  • The drip tray has been coated with a reflective silver coating to direct heat upwards and make cooking more efficient. To make cleaning a little easier the base of the drip tray may be lined with aluminium foil. Aluminium foil will collect the fat and make disposal easier. Also with foil, heat is reflected upwards making cooking more energy efficient.

Note: When lining the drip tray it is important not to overhang the sides with foil, as this will stop air circulation.


Switch off the appliance and remove the plug from the power supply. Allow the appliance to cool slightly then remove the power supply connector from the appliance, by gripping the protrusions on either side. Do not immerse the connector in water, instead wipe over if necessary with a piece of absorbent paper or wipe with a barely damp cloth.
If used, dispose of any aluminium foil from the base/drip tray. Wash the grill plate, base, glass lid and drip tray in hot soapy water and then dry thoroughly. Do not use harsh abrasives or harsh scouring pads as they may damage the non stick surface. If necessary use a soft nylon bristled brush or a plastic scouring pad to remove stubborn marks. These parts can also be placed in a dishwasher. Cleaning the Health Grill after every use will help to maintain it in a good clean working condition.

After cleaning ensure that the power supply connector is thoroughly dried before re-inserting into the appliance.
