Metal components have a protective
coating which may give off a slight odor
the first time your new appliance is
heated. The smell will dissipate after a
short time and does not indicate a
faulty connection.
Using the plate warmer

about 104°F (40°C). When pre-warming cups to this
temperature, the drinks will not cool as fast and the cup itself
is still cool enough to touch.
