ASSEMBLY
Install the four legs into the threaded holes in the bottom plate.
2. Insert the desired food pan configuration into the warmer. The warmer accepts multiple configurations
of pans from full-size, half-size, quarter-size and sixth-size. You can also use adaptor plates to allow for
round pans configurations of single, dual or triple.
3. Place the appropriate lids on the pans that you have selected.
1.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
1. Plug the machine into a properly grounded 120 volt power supply.
2. For best results Wet Operation is recommended. Fill the reservoir with 7 quarts of water by
removing the trays from the machine and pouring water into the reservoir with a pitcher. Using hot
water will speed up the start-up time of the machine. Fill the reservoir with water to the MAX line
which is marked in the reservoir. The warmer will hold a maximum of 7 quarts.
3. Replace the pans and load the warmer with your food products.
4. Turn on the “Master Switch” and set the thermostat to a maximum setting. The machine should be
producing steam in approximately 5-7 minutes (depending on water and room temperature). You
can adjust the thermostat according to your operating conditions.
5. Once Steam is produced adjust the thermostat to 80-100 to COOK and 60-80 to HOLD.
6. Once steam is produced your food will begin to cook. Adjust the thermostat accordingly. You will
want the food to maintain at least 140 Degrees Fahrenheit before serving.
7. CAUTION: Use serving utensils to remove food from the warmer as the product will be hot to the
touch.
CONDENSATION
1. Cool air striking the warm steamer may cause moisture accumulation. Protecting the unit from cool
drafts of air will help prevent condensation.
2. As the covers of the warmer are opened and closed some of the condensation may leak out from the
under-sides of the lids. This should be wiped up with a towel or rag.

CLEANING THE MACHINE
1. At the end of day: Turn the machine off using the master switch. Remove any lids, trays, pans, adaptor
plates and false bottoms. (caution: the items will be hot unless you wait long enough to allow them to
cool before removing!) These items can be taken to a sink or dishwasher for cleaning. Use a mild
detergent and water to clean.
2. Empty the remaining water in the reservoir by dumping it into a sink or drain. (caution: the water will
be hot unless you allow sufficient cool-down time). Clean the reservoir with a mild detergent and water.
Wipe down with a soft cloth.
3. Wipe down the outside of the unit with a mild detergent and a soft cloth.
4. After the components have been cleaned, re-assemble the machine as outlined above so you will be
ready for the next usage.
