Read all instructions.
Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles.
To protect against electric shock, do not immerse power cord, plug or
appliance in water or other liquid.
Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.
Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to cool
completely before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning the
appliance.
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 VillaWare for examination, repair or electrical or mechanical
adjustment.
The use of accessory attachments not recommended by appliance
manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock or injury.
Do not use outdoors.
Do not let power cord hang over edge of table or counter, or touch
hot surfaces.
Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a heated oven.
Extreme caution must be used when moving an appliance containing hot oil
or other hot liquids.
To disconnect, remove plug from outlet.
Do not use appliance for other than intended use.
ELEC TRICAL REQUIREMENTS
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risk resulting from being
entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. There are longer extension cords available
from a variety of retail stores and may be used if care is exercised in their use. If a
longer extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating of the extension cord
should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the waffler appliance. If the
appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be a grounded 3-wire
cord. The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the
countertop or table top where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over
unintentionally.

For best results, follow these simple instructions. When your waffler is heated for the
first time, it may emit slight smoke or odor. This is normal with many heating
appliances. This does not affect the safety of your appliance. However, it may affect
the flavor of the first set of waffles prepared in your waffler, and it is recommended
that you discard these.

Set the Waffle Browning Control to your desired setting. At first, try a
setting between 3 and 4. You may later adjust it lower or higher according
to your preference. A lower setting produces a lighter colored waffle, while
waffles made at a higher setting are darker and crisper. Different waffle
batters will also cook up differently. Over time, you will find your perfect
setting for the batter you use.
Close waffler and plug into 110/120 volt AC wall outlet, the red indicator
light will turn on. Turn the dial to the desired setting and the waffler will
begin preheating. It will take approximately 5 to 8 minutes to reach
baking temperature. The red power light will remain on until you
unplug your waffler.
Before baking the first waffles of the day, use a pastry brush to lightly
coat the top and bottom waffle grids with vegetable oil. A light coating
of non-stick cooking spray also works well.
When the proper baking temperature is reached, the green light will turn on.
Once heated up, cycle times will be faster.
Pour batter onto bottom grid of waffler. The green light will go off as the
baking cycle begins.
Close waffler and rotate unit 180º to the right (clockwise). Do not open for
at least 1 1⁄2 minutes. Opening the lid too soon will cause under-baked
waffles to split, making them difficult to remove.

When the green light goes on again, rotate waffler 180º to the left
(counterclockwise). Your waffles should be done according to the Waffle
Browning Control setting that you’ve chosen. If you want them darker, close
the lid and continue baking until the desired color is achieved.
Remove waffles from the grid using non-metallic utensils.
If additional baking is to be done, close waffler to retain heat. Always be sure
the green light goes on again before making more waffles.
If you need to take a short break, close waffler to maintain heat. When you
return to baking, you will notice that the first waffles will bake faster because
extra heat has been allowed to build up.
Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is being used by or
near children.
To keep a waffle warm until ready to serve or if you would like to reheat a
waffle, replace waffle in unit and close lid until ready to serve. Turn the dial
to the WaffleWarm™ setting.
When baking is complete, simply unplug power cord from wall outlet.
Leave waffler open to cool. Do not clean until unit is cooler.
To store waffler, make sure waffler is completely cooled down, then turn
waffler 90° so that it is in the vertical position. Fold handle down and
rotate feet under unit.

For more perfectly shaped waffles, trim edges with kitchen shears
before serving.
When serving several waffles at one time, keep waffles hot and crisp by
placing on a rack in a preheated 200°F oven until ready to serve.
Already cooled waffles can be re-warmed and re-crisped, individually, by
returning to hot waffler. Set Waffle Browning Control to WaffleWarm setting.
Place waffle on grid so grooves match up; close lid and heat for 1 to 2
minutes, watching carefully to prevent burning.
Baked waffles freeze well. Cool completely on wire rack. Store in plastic
freezer bag or in covered container, separating waffles with wax paper.
Reheat frozen waffles in toaster oven, oven or toaster until hot and crisp.
CLEANING AND CARE
Here are a few easy steps to keep your waffler looking and working like new:
1.
2.
3.
When preparing waffle batter, do not over mix or waffles will be tough.
Stir batter only until large lumps of dry ingredients disappear.
The optimal amount of batter to produce a full-shaped waffle, without
overflowing, will vary with different waffle batters. Pouring batter from a
measuring cup will help you gauge how much batter to use each time. Fill
bottom grid of waffler with enough batter to cover peak areas of the grid
about 3/4 to 1 cup.
For more evenly shaped waffles, spread thick batters to outer edge of grid,
using a heat proof rubber spatula or other non-metallic utensil before
closing lid.
Cake-based waffles, such as the Chocolate Waffles are more tender than
regular waffles, and may require more care when removing from waffler.
You may want to break these waffles into halves or quarters before removing.
Use a spatula to support waffles when removing from the waffler.
To retain crispness, move baked waffles to a wire cooling rack to prevent
steam from accumulating underneath.

Always unplug the waffler and allow it to cool before cleaning. There is no
need to disassemble the waffler for cleaning. Never immerse the waffler in
water or place in dishwasher.
Brush away any loose crumbs from the grooves. Wipe grids clean with paper
towel, absorbing any oil or butter that might be down in the grooves of the
grid. You can also wipe grids with a damp cloth. Do not use anything
abrasive that can scratch or damage the non-stick coating.
Wipe the outside of the waffler with a damp cloth only. Do not clean the
outside with any abrasive scouring pad or steel wool, as this will damage
the finish. A little metal polish suitable for stainless steel may be used
occasionally on the top housing. Do not immerse in water or any other
liquid. Do not place in the dishwasher.
Should any batter become baked onto the grids, pour a little cooking oil
onto the hardened batter. Let sit 5 minutes to soften batter, then wipe off
with a paper towel or soft cloth.
Do not use metal utensils to remove your waffles, they can damage the
non-stick surface.

make great waffles by omitting cornstarch and increasing flour to 2 cups. Bake as
