HOW TO USE GRILL
THE ABOVE TAG IS AFFIXED TO THE LID
HANDLE OF YOUR GRILL.
READ THIS INFORMATIVE PIECE OF
INFORMATION PRIOR TO USING YOUR
GRILL.
IT IS NOT ILLEGAL TO REMOVE THIS TAG
HOWEVER ALL USERS OF THE GRILL
SHOULD READ PRIOR TO REMOVAL.

1. Before using your grill, remove the cooking grate and drip tray from the grill. Wash the
grill with warm soapy water using a non-abrasive cloth. USE ONLY HIGH TEMP PLASTIC
UTENSILS WHEN GRILLING. Visit our web site to purchase a set of high quality stainless steel/
high temp plastic grill utensils, www.kenyonappliances.com.
2. Make sure the drip trays are inserted all the way into the bottom of grill
and electric element brackets are resting on the element support bracket.
3. Cover the bottom of the drip trays with a liquid. Water is fine. PLEASE
DO NOT USE A FLAMMABLE LIQUID! Doing so
would ruin your cookout. Using apple juice if you are
grilling pork adds a nice flavor to the meat. A can of
lime soda is wonderful if you are grilling fish. Try any
kind of liquid that you enjoy drinking. Just remember always add liquid
to the drip tray prior to grilling.
4. To keep your grill smoke free, always clean the grilling surface
after each use. Simply wash with warm soapy water using a
non-abrasive cloth or place in your dishwasher. Empty the drip
trays and wipe with a damp paper towel. The drip trays can be
used multiple times before needing to be replaced.
5. Place your cooking grates or optional griddles (part #B96000) onto the element with drip trays
installed. Use the griddles for foods such as eggs, pancakes or my favorite - stuffed french toast!
6. Preheat grill for 5 to 9 minutes on high (8 bars illuminated). Adjust heat setting for type of food.
• Steak and hamburgers 8 bars
• Chicken, pork and fish 6 bars
• Vegetables 5 bars
7. Close the lid(s) and cook. Enjoy the best grilled food you have ever tasted!
8. Clean up. This is easy to do as you will soon learn. After the grill has cooled to the touch, take
a few pieces of paper towel and place on the grilling surface. Pour about one ounce of water on
the towel and then using your high temperature nylon tongs, swab the paper toweling back and
forth to loosen up the residue from your grilling. Throw the paper towel away and wipe the grates
off with a dry paper towel.
9. Once the grates have cooled sufficiently, remove the grates and place in your dishwasher for a
thorough cleaning.
10. With the grates removed, lift up the electric elements and remove the drip trays. Empty the
contents of the drip trays in an appropriate place, please don’t pour it on your neighbors lawn.
Wipe the trays out with a dry paper towel and reuse the trays. The trays can last for many uses.
11. After you have used your grill many times, you may want to wash the lids. They can be
placed in your dishwasher and run on the pots & pans cycle. This will restore your grill to its
original pristine look.

12. To clean the grill, first be sure the cooking surface has cooled enough to handle. Then
remove the grates, lift up the electric elements until they lock in the up position, remove the
middle grate support cross bar, then the drip trays. The grate support cross bar is removed by
lifting the rear and pulling the front notch off of the supporting tab. To install the support reverse
the procedure. Do not cook on the without the support in place!
13. Wipe the stainless steel surfaces with a damp cloth to remove any residue
from previous grilling sessions.
14. Your Kenyon grill came with a sample bottle of stainless steel cleaner.
Use this cleaner once a month to keep your grill looking like new.
15. The touch control area is ceramic glass which is sealed from the effects of rain, snow and
ice. To clean the glass, use a glass cleaner and soft towel. If stains appear, use a ceramic glass
cleaner which can be found in your local grocery store.

Stuffed French Toast
16 slices
1 lb.
½ cup
4 T.
Thin Sliced Bread “any kind but not the white stuff”
Cream Cheese (softened)
Peach Preserves (or your favorite)
Butter
French Toast Batter:
5
Large eggs thoroughly beaten
1 cup Milk
1 T. Cinnamon, ground
½ t. Allspice, ground
½ t. Coriander, ground
2 oz. Water (Dark Rum, Optional)
In a large bowl place the eggs and beat with a wire whisk. Add the milk and beat again
until incorporated. In a separate smaller bowl pour water or Rum (if you prefer) and add dry
ingredients, mix thoroughly. Once the dry ingredients have been mixed, add to the egg and milk
mixture and beat again until mixed. By doing this you avoid the clumps that come with making
batter.
Method of Preparation:
This will require the use of your griddle. Preheat your ‘All Seasons Grill’ on medium high heat (6
bars) for approximately ten minutes.
Once the cream cheese has softened mix with the peach preserves. Divide equally onto eight
slices of bread and spread evenly. Place the remaining eight slices on top to make a sandwich.
When your griddle has been preheated, add two tablespoons of butter and move around to coat
the griddle. Reserve the rest of the butter for the remaining pieces of French Toast. Take the
sandwich and dip into the mixture and flip it over to coat both sides of your bread.
Quickly do this to three more “sandwiches”. You will now have four pieces of stuffed French Toast
on your griddle.
Be careful not to burn. Flip the sandwiches over and continue cooking until both sides are
browned nicely.
At this point you either serve with some nicely warmed maple syrup and butter, or you can keep
warm in a low oven until you finish the remaining pieces of French Toast.

Electrical Requirements
Check the Electrical Supply Requirements
This product must be installed in accordance with national, state and local electric codes. The
following table provides the correct voltage, amperage and frequency that must be supplied to the
grill.
The supply must be from an individual grounded circuit that is protected by a circuit breaker and
rated per the specifications for the model as shown in the table below.
KENYON
Part #
Max Load
Power Supply
B70400 2600 Watts
240V AC 11A 60Hz
Plug Type
Flying leads in flexible conduit (designed to be hardwired into electricall system)
WARNING:
If the electrical supply does not meet the product specifications, consult with a
licensed electrician before proceeding with installation!
Countertop Installation
Your Texan Grill is supplied with a factory installed polished stainless steel flange that accepts
nine oval head wood screws for mounting. The trim flange of the grill is designed to hold the unit
firmly in place in the countertop. If desired, you may seal the edge of the countertop beneath the
trim flange. We recommend a NON-ADHESIVE such as acrylic latex caulk. This will help reduce
the chance of damage to the trim flange should the unit need to be removed from the countertop.
Should you need to remove the unit from the countertop after installation simply take a piece of
fishing line and run back and forth under the trim flange to break the caulk bond.
WARNING:
Allow a 2 inch (2”) minimum clearance between the bottom of the grill and combustible
surface located below, ie: the upper edge of a drawer installed below the grill (Fig. 6, page
11). Failure to provide proper clearances and ventilation may result in a fire hazard.
10
Please read this section prior to making cutout for the grill.
It is important to plan ahead for installation of the grill, keeping the
following dimensions in mind (please refer to Figure 5 below).
A - 13 inches maximum depth of overhead cabinets
B -36 inches is minimum height of countertop above floor
C -The minimum flat countertop surface that the grill will
rest upon must be equal to or greater than the overall
grill dimensions (refer to the page 8 for overall
grill dimensions).
D -30 inches minimum clearance between the top of the
grill and the bottom of an unprotected wood or metal
cabinet or 24 inch minimum clearance when the bottom of wood or metal cabinet is protected by not less
than 1/4 inch thick flame retardant mill board covered with not less than No. 28 MSG sheet steel, 0.015 inch thick stainless steel, 0.024 inch thick aluminum or 0.020 inch
thick copper.
E - 4 inches minimum from backsplash of countertop to edge of
grill (refer to the page 8 for overall grill dimensions).
1-1/2 inches minimum from front of counter to grill.
FOR INSTALLATIONS IN CANADA: “Do Not Install Closer
Than 1/2 Inch (12 mm) From Any Adjacent Surface”, and NE
PAS INSTALLER A’MDINS DE 12MM DETOUTE SURFACE
ADJACENTE.
Fig. 5
WARNING:
To eliminate the risk of burns from reaching over heated grill, cabinet storage space
located above the grill should be avoided. If cabinet storage is to be provided, the
risk can be reduced by installing a range hood that projects horizontally a minimum
of 5 inches beyond the bottom of the cabinets.
Before making the countertop cutout, check for clearance. Check to see that the grill will clear
the front and side walls of the base cabinet. Also check for proper clearance to the back splash
so that the lid can open fully.
Adequate ventilation of the space below the countertop must be provided to ensure proper
operation of the grill. Heat transferred from the grill bottom pan during operation will overheat
an improperly ventilated area.
2 INCH (51MM) MINIMUM
Fig. 6

When making countertop cutout, radius the corner to help prevent cracking of the countertop
material. A 1/4 inch radius is typical, but follow the countertop manufacturer’s instructions
regarding the minimum radius and any reinforcements required to prevent damage to the
countertop over time.
If your countertop is made of solid surface material you will need to check with the manufacturer
for specific recommendations for cooktop & grill installation instructions. Most solid surface
countertop manufacturers require additional corner supports to prevent damage to the
countertop. Use the included screws to secure the grill to the countertop. Be careful not to
over-tighten the screws. Use an acrylic caulk to seal the flange to the countertop.
If your countertop is made of stone you will need to use an acrylic latex to mount the grill in place.
Put a large bead of caulk around the cutout opening and place the grill in place. Wipe away any
excess caulk, use water to remove the excess caulk. Allow the caulk to dry for a minimum of
24 hours without any moisture being allowed to come in contact with the caulk. Do not use the
screws that came with your grill. The caulk will hold the grill securely. Do not use a caulk which
contains silicone as this will stain the stone.
Drain Connection
For your convenience, the grill is equipped with a 1/8” NPT brass pipe fitting and 90º brass elbow
which you can attach the 1/4” ID flexible hose that came with your grill. The portable version of
the grill comes with a brass pipe plug installed in the drain fitting. If you are using your grill as a
portable unit, save the hose and 90º brass fitting for possible installation in the future.
Drain fitting for 1/4” ID hose

Final Preparations Prior to Use
Remove the protective plastic film from the lid, trim flange and glass panel. Clean the grill before
you use it for the first time. A thorough cleaning with a stainless steel or glass cleaner will remove
any traces of plastic film adhesives and manufacturing oils.
Wash the nonstick coated grates in warm soapy water before using the grill.

OPERATION OF GRILL
DO NOT USE WATER ON GREASE FIRES
Smother fire or flame or use dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
USE ONLY DRY POT HOLDERS
Moist or damp pot holders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let pot holder touch the
grate or element of the grill. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth in place of a pot holder.
DO NOT COOK ON BROKEN GRILL GRATE OR GRIDDLE
If the grate should break, grease and oils may come into direct contact with the electric element and
create a risk of electric shock or fire. Contact an authorized service center or KENYON Customer Care
immediately at (860) 664-4906.
CLEAN GRILL WITH CAUTION
If a wet sponge or cloth is used to wipe spills on a hot cooking surface, becareful to avoid steam burns.
Some cleaners produce noxious fumes if applied to a hot surface. Read the cleaner label for details prior
to using.
DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENT OR GRATE
The heating element and grate will be hot for some time after cooking. These components should be
allowed to cool and then be handled with care and caution while cleaning, as they may be hot enough to
cause severe burns.
CLEAN GRILL AFTER EACH USE
This appliance is equipped with removable, disposable drip trays. The drip trays MUST be removed and
cleaned after each and EVERY use. Do not allow grease to accumulate between cooking. The drip trays
and baffle tray MUST be used when cooking on the grill. Excessive grease may spill over into the interior
of the grill, voiding your warranty and posing a fire hazard.
NEVER LEAVE GRILL UNATTENDED AT HIGH HEAT SETTINGS
High heat setting may cause heavy smoking and ignite grease.
DO NOT CLEAN UNIT WITH PRESSURIZED WATER
Never clean the grill with any form of pressurized water or other types of cleaners. Doing so will void the
warranty and may pose a serious risk of electric shock. Always clean the grill with a cloth and a stainless
steel or glass surface cleaner.
STORAGE
When used as a portable grill, store indoors or away from weather when not in use. When used as a builtin grill, suitable shelter must be provided to prevent direct exposure to rain.
TO PREVENT SMOKE
To prevent the contents of the drip trays from smoking, place 1 cup of water (or enough to cover the
bottom of the pan) in the drip trays before cooking.
