When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always
be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and/or injury to
persons, including the following:
• Read all instructions.
• Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
• To protect against electric shock do not immerse cord, plugs or
appliance in water or other liquid.
• Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by
or near children.
• Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to cool
before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning the appliance.
• Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug, or after the
appliance malfunctions or has been damaged in any manner. Return
appliance to the nearest authorized service facility for examination,
repair or adjustment. Or, call the appropriate toll-free number on the
cover of this manual.
• The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the appliance
manufacturer may cause injuries.
• Do not use outdoors.
• Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
• Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a heated oven.
• Extreme caution must be used when moving an appliance containing
hot oil or other hot liquids.
• Always attach plug to appliance first, then plug cord into the wall outlet.
To disconnect, turn any control to OFF, then unplug from wall outlet.
• Do not use appliance for other than intended use.
• Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with
the appliance.
This product is for household use 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.
Warning: This appliance is equipped with a tamper-resistant screw
to prevent removal of the outer cover. To reduce the risk of fire or
electric shock, do not attempt to remove the outer cover. There are
no user-serviceable parts inside. Repair should be done only by
authorized service personnel.
1) A short power-supply cord (or detachable power-supply cord) is to be
provided to reduce the risk resulting from becoming entangled in or
tripping over a longer cord.
2) Longer detachable power-supply cords or extension cords are available
and may be used if care is exercised in their use.
3) If a long detachable power-supply cord or extension cord is used,
a) The marked electrical rating of the detachable power-supply cord or
extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of
the appliance.
b) If the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be
a grounding-type 3-wire cord, and
c) The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the
countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.
Note: If the power supply cord is damaged, it should be replaced by
qualified personnel; in Latin America, by an authorized service center.
This product is for household use only.
1. Remove all labels, tags and stickers attached to the body or cord.
2. Please go to to register your warranty.
3. Remove and save literature.
4. Open the unit by lifting the handle
Important: Condition the nonstick cooking surfaces with a light
coating of cooking oil before first use. Do not use nonstick cooking
spray. Brush the oil onto the cooking surfaces or wipe on with a
paper towel. Be sure to coat the cooking surfaces. Wipe off excess
oil with paper towels. The first waffle will absorb any excess oil
and may have a greasy, blotchy appearance. Discard it. Subsequent
waffles will be much better.
5. After conditioning, allow to cool. Clean the cooking surfaces as
instructed in Care and Cleaning.
1. Before pre-heating for first use, condition both the upper and lower
cooking surfaces (See IMPORTANT under GETTING STARTED).
2. Close the lid and plug the cord into a standard electrical outlet. The
ready light will come on to indicate the unit is heating. When the ready
light goes out (after about 5 minutes), the unit is ready.
3. Open the unit and pour about 2/3 cup (160 ml) of batter onto the lower
cooking surface. Don't pour too much as excess batter will seep out
over the edges. Spread the batter toward the edges using a rubber
spatula for even waffles.
4. Close the lid, but don't force it shut. The hinge is designed to be loose
to allow the waffle to rise evenly and for steam to escape. Keep hands
away from the unit as steam may escape when baking. The ready light
will come on. Cooking time is 4-5 minutes depending on the type of
batter/ingredients. You may notice moisture on the sides or near the
handle. This is normal. Avoid opening the unit during baking as this
may cause the waffle to stick or bake poorly.
5. The ready light will go out when the waffle is done. You may cook it
longer for a crispier waffle. Open the top and carefully remove the
waffle using a fork. Be careful not to scratch the non-stick finish.
Should sticking occur, lightly re-oil the cooking surfaces. Keep the lid
closed between cooking batches of waffles to preserve heat.
6. When all waffles are baked, unplug the cord, open the unit, and allow it
to cool before cleaning.
1. Waffle batter can be added any time the ready light is out. It is not
necessary to pour the batter immediately after the light goes out.
2. Baked waffles freeze well. Cool the waffles, place paper towels between
them, wrap waffles in plastic wrap or freezer bags, and freeze.
3. Packaged pancake mix or baking mix work well with this product.
This product contains no user serviceable parts. Refer service to qualified
service personnel.
1. Make sure the waffle maker is unplugged and completely cool before cleaning.
2. Wipe the cooking surfaces with a damp sponge or cloth.
Important: Do not immerse the waffle maker in water or run water
directly onto the cooking surfaces.
3. To remove cooked on food, use a plastic bristle brush or nylon mesh pad.
Important: Do not use steel wool or other abrasive cleaners on the
cooking surfaces as they may damage the nonstick coating.
4. Make sure to clean the handles after each use.
5. Clean the outside surfaces by wiping with a damp or soapy sponge or cloth.
6. Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
Important: Do not use harsh or abrasive cleaners that may scratch or
ruin the exterior surfaces. Never spray or apply cleaners directly to
the waffle maker; instead, apply the cleaner to a cloth and rub on.
Wrap the cord around the cord wrap and stand the unit up on a shelf,
counter, or in a cabinet.
