IMPORTANT
SAFEGUARDS
When using an electrical appliance, basic safety
precautions should always be followed, including
the following:
1. READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles
and knobs.
3. To protect against fire, electrical shock, and
injury to persons, DO NOT IMMERSE CORD,
PLUG, OR UNIT in water or other liquids.
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
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
Cuisinart Authorized Service Facility for
examination, repair, or adjustment.
7. The use of accessory attachments not
recommended by Cuisinart may result in fire,
electrical shock, or injury to persons.
8. Do not use outdoors.
9. Do not let power cord hang over edge of
table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
10. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric
burner, or in a heated oven.
11. Unplug the unit when finished baking waffles.
12. Do not use appliance for other than intended
use.
2
13. Always attach plug to appliance first, then plug
cord into the wall outlet. To disconnect, turn
control to setting #1, then remove plug from
the outlet.
14. Extreme caution must be used when moving
an appliance containing hot oil or other hot
liquids.
15. WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK
OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK,
REPAIR SHOULD BE DONE ONLY BY
AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL. NO USER
SERVICEABLE PARTS ARE INSIDE.
SAVE THESE
INSTRUCTIONS
FOR HOUSEHOLD
USE ONLY
SPECIAL CORD SET
INSTRUCTIONS
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce
the risks resulting from becoming entangled in or
tripping over a longer cord.
Longer extension cords are available and may
be used if care is exercised in their use.
If a long extension cord is used, the marked
electrical rating of the extension cord should be
at least as great as the electrical rating of the
appliance, and the longer cord should be arranged
so that it will not drape over the countertop or
tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or
animals, or tripped over.
NOTICE:
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade
is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of
electric shock, 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 modify the
plug in any way.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
SPECIAL FEATURES
1. Before using your Cuisinart® Classic Waffle
Maker for the first time, remove any dust from
shipping by wiping the plates with a damp
cloth. Remove all protective paper and
wrapping.
4.
3.
2. Preheat the waffler. Close grids and plug cord
into a 120V AC wall outlet. The red light will
go on to signal power. Allow the waffle maker
to preheat. The green indicator light will go on
when it is ready to use.
Note: The first time you use your waffle
maker, it may have a slight odor and may
smoke a bit. This is normal, and common to
appliances with a nonstick surface.
3. Pour batter when green indicator light goes
on. Pour batter onto the center of the lower
waffle grid. Use a heat-proof plastic spatula to
spread batter evenly over the grids. Close
the lid.
4. The green light will go off and the red light will
once again illuminate. It may take several
seconds for the red light to come on. This is
normal.
5. Once the waffles are ready to eat, the green
light will again come on.
6. Baking time is determined by browning level.
Choose a setting on the browning control
dial. We recommend using setting #3 for
golden brown waffles.
7. Once the waffle is ready, remove it by gently
loosening the edges with a heat-proof plastic
spatula. Never use metal utensils, as they
may damage the nonstick coating.
8. Always disconnect the plug from the wall
outlet once baking is completed.

Note: The Cuisinart ® Classic Waffle Maker

nonstick coating. Before the first use,
we suggest you season the grids with
cooking spray or flavorless vegetable
oil. If using oil, apply oil with a paper
towel or pastry brush. You may find it
helpful to repeat this process before
each use of the waffle maker.

TIPS TO MAKE
PERFECT WAFFLES
We recommend setting #3 for golden
brown waffles.
If you prefer crisper, darker waffles, increase the
browning control to setting #4 or 5.
For evenly filled waffles, pour the batter onto the
center of the lower grid and close the cover.
We recommend using 1/2 cup batter per waffle
for evenly filled waffles.
Waffles are best when made to order, but baked
waffles may be kept warm in a 200°F oven.
Place in a baking pan or wrap in foil while in the
oven. Waffles wrapped in foil may lose
their crispiness.
Baked waffles may be frozen. Allow to cool
completely, then place in plastic food storage
bag. Use waxed paper to keep waffles
separated. Reheat in a toaster or
toaster oven when ready to use.
SUGGESTED TOPPINGS
Maple syrup, fruit syrups
Warm fruit compote, fruit sauce
Fresh berries, chopped fruit, chopped nuts
Powdered sugar
Whipped cream, ice cream, sorbet
Chocolate sauce
Fruited yogurt

CLEANING AND
MAINTENANCE
Once you have finished baking, remove plug
from electrical outlet. Leave top lid open so grids
begin to cool.
Never take your waffle maker apart for cleaning.
Simply brush crumbs from grooves, and absorb
any excess cooking oil by wiping with a dry cloth
or paper towel.
You may clean the grids by wiping with a damp
cloth to prevent staining and sticking from batter
or oil buildup. Be certain grids have cooled
completely before cleaning. If batter adheres
to plates, simply pour a little cooking oil onto
the baked batter and let stand approximately
5 minutes, thus allowing it to soften for easy
removal.
To clean exterior, wipe with a soft dry cloth.
Never use an abrasive cleanser or harsh pad.
NEVER IMMERSE CORD, PLUG OR UNIT IN
WATER OR OTHER LIQUID.
STORAGE
Store with cord wrapped securely around base.
Plug prongs fit into the special grooves on the
side of the waffle maker. For compact storage,
stand waffle maker on opening end so Cuisinart
logo is facing you. The waffle maker has been
designed with a special latching feature so the lid
stays closed during storage.
