EBQ™ SITE SELECTION AND INSTALLATION
NOTE
The installation of the electric grill unit must comply with the applicable local and/or national
building and fire codes.
A Ground Fault Interrupt (GFI) outdoor outlet or a circuit protected by a ground fault breaker
with a rating of 15 amps, 120 volts is strongly recommended.
A dedicated circuit is preferred but not essential in all cases. A dedicated circuit will be
required if, after installation, the circuit breaker trips or the fuse blows on a regular basis when
the electric grill is operating. Additional appliances on the same circuit may exceed the
current rating of the circuit breaker.
WARNING
Ensure the power cord is not pinched or against a sharp edge. Ensure that the power cord is
stored or secured to avoid tripping or snagging to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock or
injury to persons.
Construction and electrical outlet wiring must comply with local building codes and other
applicable regulations to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and injury to persons.
Do not attempt to wire your own new outlets or circuits. To reduce the risk of fire, electric
shock or injury to persons, always use a licensed electrician.
INSTALLATION
1. Select a suitable location away from puddles, pools, ponds, and hot tubs.
2. Ensure the electric grill is positioned more than 8” away from any combustible material
or surfaces before cooking.
3. Ensure that there are no flammable or other volatile materials in the direct area before
grilling.
4. For ease of electrical hook up you may wish to locate the fireplace near an existing
outlet. (refer to NOTE).
5. Cover to protect your electric grill after use and for storage. Allow the grill to cool

EBQ™ FEATURES
Welcome and Thank You for purchasing a Dimplex EBQ™ Electric Grill.
This introduction highlights the features of the EBQ™. Operating instructions are contained later
on in this brochure.
EvenSear™ Cooking System
At the heart of your EBQ™ grill is the Even Sear™ Cooking System. The dual layer grill system
functions in two ways. The top grill sears your food, with direct contact, and at the same time your
food is cooked gently and evenly by additional heat radiating through the lower level element.
The Even Sear™ system ensures that all energy supplied to the grill is directly used to cook your
food. Energy that would otherwise be wasted heating the cabinetry or air surrounding the food is
focused on cooking your food to perfection. The Even Sear™ Cooking System applies energy
through both grill layers and flows evenly and consistently throughout the entire grill area, eliminating
“hot spots” or “cool spots”.
No unwanted fumes. Safe and Fast.
The EBQ™ electric grill utilizes your standard household electric current and provides a closely
controlled source of heat to your food. No gas or other fuel fumes will impart unwanted tastes or
odor to your food. The EBQ™ system is safe, with no open flame or combustion, provides fast
efficient heat up, and no refueling is ever necessary!
Easy to Clean
With its stainless steel upper grill, the Even Sear™ Cooking System is easy to keep clean. No
taste or odor is ever transferred to the food through this high quality grill.
100% Use of Grill
Because there are no variations in temperature or performance, the Even Sear™ Cooking System
provides 100% use of its grill area. The full 216 sq. in. grill maintains a consistent even temperature,
even in the corners!
Lid Down Cooking
To conserve energy and reduce cooking time, we recommend that the EBQ™ be used with the
lid down during cooking. A typical thermometer featured in many other grills, which reads only the
air temperature, inside the cabinetry is unnecessary on the EBQ™.
Versatile
With no open flame, no combustion and no need to refuel the EBQ™ can be used safely in many
areas that other grills cannot.
