3
To protect against electric shock, do not immerse cord or plug in
water or other liquid.
4
Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or
near children.
5
Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to
cool before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning
the appliance.
6
Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after
the appliance malfunctions, or has been damaged in any manner.
Return appliance to the nearest authorized service facility for
examination, repair or adjustment.
7
The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the
appliance manufacturer may cause injuries.
8
Do not let cord hang over the edge of table or counter, or touch hot
surfaces.
9
Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a
heated oven.
10 Extreme caution must be used when moving an appliance
containing hot oil or other hot liquids.
11
Always attach plug to appliance first, then plug cord in the outlet.
To disconnect, remove plug from wall outlet.
12 Do not use outdoors.
13 Use only with plug provided.
14 Do not use appliance for other than intended use.
1
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the hazards
resulting from entanglement or tripping over a longer cord. An
extension cord may be used with care; however, be sure the marked
electrical rating is at least as great as the electrical rating of this
appliance. The extension cord should be positioned such that it does
not drape over the counter or table top where it can be pulled on by
children or tripped over. The electrical rating of this appliance is listed on
the bottom panel of the unit.
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the
other). As a safety feature, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet only
one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it
still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to
defeat this safety feature

Before Your First Use
The grill/griddle is designed for indoor use only. Carefully unpack the
grill and remove all packaging materials. To remove any dust that may
have accumulated during packaging, wipe the cooking surface and base
with a clean, damp cloth. Dry thoroughly. Do not use harsh or abrasive
cleaners on any part of the grill.
Warning: Do not immerse the cord or plug in water or other liquid.
Do not use metal scouring pads on any part of the appliance.
Place the grill on a dry, stable surface away from an open flame or hot
burners. This appliance requires 1800 watts and should be the only
appliance operating on the circuit. Plug the grill into a 120 volt 60 Hz AC
only outlet.
Before using, condition the nonstick surface. Spread 2 teaspoons of
vegetable oil with a soft cloth or folded paper towel over the entire grill

Grilling Tips
1
2
The nonstick cooking surface is metal utensil safe. However care
should be taken when using metal utensils with this product. Only
use the enclosed scraper to clean the griddle
Be careful not to transfer germs from raw meat to cooked meat.
Use separate utensils and platters for raw and cooked meat or wash
platter used for raw meat before placing cooked meat on it.
3
Use a long-handled brush for basting foods during grilling.
4
Tender meat cuts, such as sirloin and tenderloin, are generally
more suitable for grilling than less-tender meat cuts, such as round
or rump.
5
Many less-tender meat cuts can be grilled, but they benefit from the
tenderizing effects of marinating in an acid-based wet marinade.
6
A marinade is a seasoned mixture (wet or dry) in which foods are
soaked in order to absorb flavor and/or become more tender. The
flavor grows stronger the longer the marinade is left on the food
before cooking. The amount of time usually ranges from 1 hour to
24 hours.
Grilling Guide
Follow these guidelines for successful grilling:
1
Set the temperature control dial to the desired temperature.
Preheat the grill until the READY arrow light goes out, approximately
10 minutes.
2
Marinate meats before grilling for extra flavor and tenderness, if
desired. (Marinades with added sugar will cause meats to brown
more quickly.)
3
Before grilling, partially cook bone-in chicken, ribs and uncooked
smoked or fresh sausages for best results. If not partially cooked,
these meats may become overbrowned on the outside before the
center is done.
4
Turn food once during grilling unless otherwise directed.
5
If desired, brush with barbecue or other sauce during last 5 to 10
minutes of grilling.
6
Unplug from outlet and allow grill to cool completely before
disposing of drippings that have accumulated in the drip channel.
A wet marinade usually consists of oil (vegetable or olive) to give
moisture, an acid (lemon juice, vinegar, wine, tomatoes or yogurt)
to tenderize, and flavorings (herbs and spices) to enhance or
add flavor.
A dry marinade, or spice rub, is a mixture of herbs, spices and salt
that is rubbed onto the food after the food has been lightly brushed
with vegetable oil. Generally, use 1 to 2 tablespoons dry marinade
per pound of meat.
7
Always marinate in a tightly covered nonmetal dish, and turn the
food occasionally. Be sure to refrigerate all meats while marinating.
Heavy plastic bags are also convenient for marinating – add the food
and marinade, then tightly seal the bag. Turn the bag now and then
to redistribute the marinade.
8
If leftover wet marinade is to be used as a sauce with the cooked
food, be sure to place it in a small pan and heat it to a rolling boil
before serving to eliminate any bacterial growth.
9
Grease from high fat foods, such as bacon or sausage, may splatter
on countertop. Protect countertop as necessary.
10 When grilling fish, use a large flat spatula or turner to turn the fish.

Quick and Easy Kabobs
Sensational, succulent kabobs are quick and as easy as 1 - 2 - 3 to make!
Use these tips and charts to get started, then let your palate be your
guide. Here’s how:
Choose meat, vegetable and brush-on sauce from Guide to Great
Kabobs (page 12). Thread meat and vegetables on bamboo or metal
skewers. Grill, turning and brushing occasionally with sauce, until meat
and vegetables are done. Use the Grilling Kabobs chart (page 12) as a
guide. Grill tasty kabobs in no time!
Kabob Success Tips
•
Soak bamboo skewers in water at least 30 minutes to
prevent burning.
•
Leave a little space between foods threaded on skewers
(tightly packed food will not cook evenly).
•
To prevent sticking (and to make cleanup easier), brush cooking
surface with vegetable oil before grilling.
•
Sauces that contain sugar burn easily. Brush them on kabobs only
during last 5 to 10 minutes of grilling.
•
To avoid food-borne illnesses caused by eating undercooked or raw
meat, boil the sauce you’ve dipped your basting brush into before
serving with cooked kabobs.
Brush lightly with vegetable oil
before grilling and twice while
grilling to retain moisture
