any packaging dust.
¥Place grill on a flat, dry surface or sturdy table, away from any hot surfaces or other
heating appliance. Do not use under kitchen cabinets.
¥Always leave unit unplugged when not in use. When using, do not plug it into the
same outlet or use it on the same circuit with other appliances. A circuit overload
¥Never use charcoal or any other combustible fuel with this appliance.
¥Keep all combustible material such as paper, cardboard or fabric at least three feet
away from grill. Do not use in wet or moist locations. Do not use near a sink or
¥When grill is used for the first time, it is normal for the heating element to give off
a small amount of smoke and odor.
ADDITIONAL SAFETY TIPS
¥Never touch the metallic parts of unit (body or grill plate) while the appliance is
operating, as these can become very hot.
¥To prevent risk of burns, do not move the appliance while it is in operation.
¥Never place appliance on a delicate surface, such as a tablecloth or a piece of
¥ Do not place anything between the grill plate and the food (i.e., a dish, aluminum
¥ Do not leave appliance unattended while in use.
1. Assemble grill as follows: Slide drip tray under heating element. Place non-stick grill
plate atop base.
2. Place assembled grill on a flat, stable surface, such as a counter or tabletop, where
it will not be obstructed and cannot fall.
3. Unwind cord completely before plugging it into wall outlet. If an extension cord is
being used, secure it safely so that it cannot be pulled on or tripped over.
4. Plug in and set Low/Off/High switch to High. Allow grill to preheat for 10-15 minutes.
5. Place food on grill plate and allow it to cook. (Switch to Low heat, if desired for type
of food being cooked.)
6. While cooking, use tongs or spatula to avoid piercing and releasing flavorful juices in
items that are cooking. To prevent damage to non-stick surface of grill plate, avoid
using metal utensils whenever possible.
7. KEEP-WARM FEATURE: If cooking large quantities of food, already cooked portions
may be kept warm by placing them on the keep-warm sections located at the sides
of the grill plate. Use a non-metal utensil to set them aside, so that center portion of
grill plate can be used for cooking.If cooking meat, be careful not to allow any
juices from uncooked portions to drip on pieces already cooked.
8. When food has finished cooking, switch grill off and unplug. Serve food immediately.
¥When cooking meats, never place cooked meat on same platter used to hold raw
meat unless platter has been washed.
¥Poultry and kabobs should be turned often to allow for even browning and thorough
cooking, especially in the case of chicken.
¥Make sure all meats and fish are completely cooked before removing from grill.
¥Tender meat cuts, such as sirloin and tenderloin, are generally more suitable for
grilling than less-tender cuts, such as round or rump.
¥Many less tender meat cuts can be grilled successfully, especially when they have
been marinated to tenderize the meat and enhance its flavor.
¥Never cut foods on the grill plate.
¥When grilling meats, bear in mind that flat, thin or boneless cuts grill best. The same
rule should be followed when grilling vegetables - sliced tomatoes or eggplant will
grill more easily than corn on the cob.
¥When cooking, keep all necessary ingredients conveniently at hand so food can be
constantly monitored. Grill should never be left unattended while it is operating.
¥Never use metal utensils in cooking, as they could damage the non-stick surface.
¥Do not leave food on the grill after it has finished cooking.
¥If a large amount of food is to be cooked, divide it into smaller quantities that can be
reasonably accommodated by the grill at one time. Grill each quantity separately, one
after the other, until all food has been cooked. Do not overload the grill with food, as
this will create smoke and reduce grilling efficiency.
