4. For Open Grilling: close the grill and turn the
control knob to high to preheat for 8-10 minutes
until the signal l goes out. Use the charts to help
you determine food amounts and times. Open the
grill and pull straight up on the top handle to
release the top grid. Turn and slowly lower the top
grid down so that it forms a flat griddle-like cooking
surface across from the bottom grid (B). If cooking
on only one side, place the food on the bottom
grid. Watch and turn food as needed. To keep food
warm while serving, turn the control knob to LOW.
5. When finished grilling, turn the control knob to OFF, unplug the cord, open the unit,
and allow it to cool.
1. To avoid damaging the non-stick surfaces, do not use sharp utensils or cut food on the
Grid surfaces. Use rubber or wood utensils.
2. Baked waffles freeze well. Cook all the batter. Cool the waffles and place paper towels
between them. Wrap waffles in plastic wrap or freezer bags, and freeze.
3. To keep foods from sticking, you may want to re-oil cooking surfaces before each use
or use a cooking spray.
