Operation
Cooking Recommendations
C A UTI ON :
Do not leave the Salamander unattended when in use, as it does cook fast.
1.
This equipment has been designed to give a good evenness of heat across the rack area, so
toasting, cheese melting and grilling should be relatively even wherever food is placed.
2.
Position ‘3’ (Maximum) is recommended for most grilling, cheese melting functions and position
‘1’ (Low) for a reduced heat.
3.
For cooking food through rather than just surface browning, rack position three and four from the
top is recommended.
4.
With the Branding Plate fitted, the unit is able to aid the chef in its ability to produce "medium rare"
steaks in the front and "well done" steaks at the rear - achieved with the sloped Branding Plate rack
position. (Shelf 2 and 3 from the top.).
5.
Heating the Branding Plate under the burners before cooking commences, also allows the "sealed in
flavoured goodness" to be achieved.
10
Cleaning and Maintenance
C A UTI ON :
Always turn off the power supply before cleaning.
This unit is not water proof.
Do not use water jet spray to clean interior or exterior of this unit.
General
 To achieve the best results, cleaning must be thorough, and all controls and mechanical parts
checked and adjusted periodically by a competent serviceman. If any small faults occur, have them
attended to promptly.
 Don't wait until they cause a complete breakdown.
Racking
 For ease of cleaning of this unit and the racking system and to achieve the best results, it is
recommended that the racking is removed completely from the unit and cleaned independently This
will allow for a more thorough cleaning of the Salamander.
 To remove the racking system, carry out the following instructions.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Remove the Grease / Crumb Tray from the underside of the salamander unit.
Remove the Branding Plate from the rack (If fitted).
Slide the rack out of the side racks and remove from the unit.
Remove the left and right hand side racks from the unit by removing the single securing screw
from each of the side racks.
Withdraw the left and right hand side racks from the unit.
Refit the racking in the reverse order once cleaning has been completed.
Stainless Steel Surfaces
 Clean with detergent. Baked on deposits or discolouration may require a good quality stainless steel
cleaner or stainless steel wool. Always apply the cleaner when the Salamander is cool and rub in the
direction of the "grain".
Vitreous Enamel Surfaces
 Do not use wire brushes, steel wool or other abrasive material. Clean the enamelled surfaces
regularly with a good quality domestic oven cleaner. Remove the rack and side racks from the
Salamander - this allows easy cleaning of the flat enamelled side walls. Leave the tray in to collect
all residue.
Trough Tray
 Empty and clean daily.
