How to Use
This appliance is for household use only.
1. Remove the cooking grids by pressing down on the grid clips at the front of the unit and
sliding the grids forward and out. Wash them in hot, sudsy water, rinse, dry thoroughly,
and replace them in the unit. When replacing the grids, be sure the lip of each grid fits
into the notch at the back of the unit and that each is securely clipped into place before
plugging in and operating. Grids should have matching surfaces.
2. IMPORTANT: Condition the non-stick cooking surfaces with a light coating of cooking
oil before first use. Do not use non-stick cooking spray to “condition.” Brush the oil
onto the cooking surfaces or wipe on with a paper towel. Be sure to coat the cooking
surfaces as this will reduce sticking. Wipe off excess oil with paper towels. The first
waffle may absorb excess oil and appear greasy. If so, discard it.
1. Be sure the Cooking Grids are securely attached with the waffle sides showing. Close
the unit and plug the cord into a standard electrical outlet.
2. Turn the control knob to WAFFLES. The signal light (A) will
come on to indicate the unit is heating. Use the pre-heat time
to prepare your batter (see “Recipes”). When the signal light
goes out (from 5-8 minutes), the unit is ready.
3. Open the unit and pour about 1 cup of batter onto the lower
cooking surface. Spread the batter toward the edges using a
rubber spatula for even waffles.
4. Carefully close the top. Keep hands away from the unit as steam may escape when
baking begins. The signal light will come back on and may cycle on and off during
baking. Cooking time is 3-5 minutes depending on the type of batter/ingredients you
used. The hinge between the sections is designed to be loose. This allows the waffle to
rise evenly and for steam to escape during baking. You may also notice steam moisture
on the sides or near the handle. This is normal. Avoid opening the unit during baking
cycle as it may cause the waffle to stick or bake poorly.
5. When waffles are done, the signal light will go out. Open the top and remove the
waffle using a rubber or wooden spatula. Be careful not to scratch the non-stick finish.
You may want to have a plate nearby when removing waffles in case they separate as
this unit is designed to semi-cut waffles into 4 sections. If sticking occurs, lightly re-oil
the cooking surfaces. You can make additional batches right away — no need to let the
unit cool down. Keep the lid closed between cooking batches to preserve heat.
6. When all waffles are baked, turn the control knob to OFF, unplug the cord, open the
unit, and allow it to cool.
This versatile unit is designed for open grilling to prepare griddle-style foods such as
pancakes, eggs, or bacon strips, or closed grilling for hamburgers, hot dogs, or sandwiches
such as grilled cheese. See the charts for preparation.
1. Be sure the cooking grids are securely attached with the flat grill sides showing. Close
the unit and plug the cord into a standard electrical outlet.
2. Depending on the kind of food you’re grilling (such as bacon or chops), you may want
to place a small can or container under the grease spouts at the corners to catch grease
or drippings from the built-in grease channel.
3. For Closed Grilling: turn the control knob to high and preheat the unit closed for 8-10
minutes until the signal light goes out. Use the charts to help you determine the best
setting, depending on the food. Open the unit, place the food on the lower Grid, and
close the grill.
