USER MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance requires little maintenance. It contains no user
serviceable parts. Do not try to repair it yourself. Any servicing
requiring disassembly other than cleaning must be performed
by a qualified appliance repair technician.
CAUTION: Do not immerse the Waffle Maker, cord, or plug in
water or any other liquid.
Unplug and allow to cool before cleaning. Do not use steel wool,
scouring pads or abrasive cleaners, as this will damage the finish.
Wipe Cooking Plates with absorbent paper toweling or a soft cloth.
Although the Cooking Plates are coated with a non-stick coating,
some batter or ingredients may still adhere to the Waffle Maker.
To remove, simply pour a little cooking oil onto the baked-on food.
Allow to stand for 5 to 10 minutes. This should soften the food and
make it easy to remove with absorbent paper toweling or a soft
cloth. If the preceding measure fails to remove the food residue,

cloth and a little non-abrasive detergent.
Wipe with a soft, dry cloth.

recipe for the first time, it may become
necessary to experiment with the
Browning Control. Begin by setting the
Control to halfway between LIGHT
and DARK. After the first waffle, move
the Browning Control up or back to
the desired brownness color setting.
Browning may differ depending on the
batter ingredients. Batters using sugar
tend to brown quicker.
10. Cooking time should take approximately 3-5 minutes. Exact
cooking time will be a matter of your taste and will depend on
type of batter and ingredients used. The Cook Light turns on and
off as the unit cycles to maintain ideal heating temperatures; this
prevents overheating. Avoid opening your Waffle Maker before
cooking is completed, as this may cause the waffle to stick or

13. After use, slide Browning Control to LIGHT and then immediately
unplug from the electrical outlet.
