18. It is absolutely necessary to keep this appliance clean at all times as it comes into
direct contact with food.
19. Be careful not to scratch the non-stick coating of the cooking plate, as you might
get little pieces of this coating into the food. If scraping is necessary, unplug the

device.
HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY
KEEP THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Polarized plug instructions
3
This appliance is equipped with a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of
electric shock, this plug will fit into the polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not properly fit into
the outlet at first, reverse it. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician.
Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.
Short cord instructions
4
A short power supply cord is provided to reduce the hazards resulting from becoming entangled in, or
tripping over a longer cord. Extension cords may be used if care is exercised in their use.
• The electrical rating of the extension cord should be at least that of the appliance. If the electrical rating
of the extension cord is too low, it could overheat and burn.
• The resulting extended cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter top or tabletop
where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.

Operation
• On first use, the protective coating might burn off, causing smoking. This is NOT harmful and will
disappear after a short time.
• When using for the first time, wipe the surface of the plates with a damp cloth, then dry. DO NOT
IMMERSE THE APPLIANCE IN WATER!
• Position the appliance on a flat, heat-resistant, level surface.
• Close the appliance and plug into the electrical outlet. The red power light (3) will come on, to indicate
that the appliance is switched on.
• The green temperature pilot light (4) will stay off, to indicate the appliance is warming up. When the
green pilot light goes on, it means that the preset cooking temperature is reached and unit is ready for
use.
Note: During use, this pilot light will come on and off regularly. This simply means that the thermostat
is regulating the appliance’s temperature.
Caution: During operation, the baking plates and the surfaces on the appliance get hot. The appliance
might also generate steam. Pay attention not to get burned. Always use oven mitts for protection, when
opening or closing the lid.
• Open the appliance, using the front handle (1) and an oven mitt. Avoid contact with the hot surfaces.
• Lightly brush the lower cooking plate (6) with butter, margarine, or cooking oil. For best results, use a
cooking spray.
• Alternatively, insert cupcake liners (paper cupcake cups). This model accepts 1 ½” and 2” paper liners.
• Pour the batter evenly into the sections of the bottom plate (6), not all the way to the edges
(Do not overfill: approximately 1 tablespoon per mini cupcake), and close the lid of the appliance.

• Bake until golden brown, or when the cupcakes are cooked throughout. Doneness can be measured
by inserting a toothpick into the middle (it should come out clean and dry).
• When the cupcakes are ready, remove them with a plastic or wooden spatula, or inserting a plastic fork
or a wooden stick from the sides of the cupcakes. Never use any sharp metallic objects, as this might
damage the non-stick coating of the plates.
• Leave the cupcakes to cool on a plate or on a rack.
• When baking is finished, unplug the cord from the wall socket and leave the appliance open to cool.
Tips:
• Prepare all the ingredients and batter before starting to preheat the appliance.
• The cupcake maker does not necessarily need to be preheated for cupcakes. Just spoon the batter
into the shapes and bake. However, it will work equally well if pre-heated. The cooking time will then be
shorter.
• You can fill the sections easily using disposable pastry bags or sealable plastic food storage bags with
their corner clipped.
• Actual cooking time may vary, depending on the ingredients and type of cupcakes; in general, count 6
to 8 minutes cooking time per batch. The more batches you do, the lower the cooking time.
• Different recipes may rise differently while cooking. Pre-test a new batter before starting full batches of
cupcakes, in order to see the optimal level of batter needed to manage perfectly shaped cupcakes, but
avoid overflows.
• Cupcakes are very fragile when hot. Be careful when removing, and allow them to stand at least 5
minutes on a rack before serving.
• Using liners (paper baking cups) will make it easier to remove and serve. If cooking brownie type
mixes, you have to use liners as the cupcake will then be too fragile to remove, and they must cool in
order to hold their shape. Liners will also increase the cooking time (by 1 to 2 minutes approximately).
• This model accepts 1 1/2” and 2” paper liners.
• Leave cupcake unfrosted if they need to be packed for lunch or travel.
• Use a small spatula or knife to spread the frosting, if desired, or use a decorating bag. Dipping a
cupcake in a dark chocolate glaze will also give excellent results. Use sprinkles on frosted cupcakes
whenever desired.
• Use your favorite cupcake batter recipe, or convenient pre-packaged mixes.
