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.

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.

INTRODUCTION
Cuisinart has always had a flair for the dramatic,
and your new Traditional Waffle Iron is one of the
best examples yet! The look is solid – a cross
between commercial and consumer, with brushed
stainless steel that’s upscale and elegant.
Smooth, flared sides add style and catch drips
for easy cleanups. You’ll love the options that
6 browning settings provide, and the successful
results that indicator lights and an audible tone
guarantee. Plates are nonstick, so heat them
up and get cooking! Enjoy great breakfasts and
creative desserts. Happy waffling!

BEFORE THE FIRST USE
Remove all packaging and any promotional
labels or stickers from your waffle iron. Be sure
that all parts (listed above, Parts and Features)
of your new waffle iron have been included
before discarding any packaging materials. You
may want to keep the box and packing materials
for use at a later date.
Before using your Cuisinart® Traditional Waffle
Iron for the first time, wipe housing and waffle
plates with a damp cloth to remove any dust from
the warehouse or shipping.
Note: The Cuisinart® Traditional Waffle Iron
has been treated with a special 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 iron.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
1. Place the closed waffle iron on a clean, flat
surface where you intend to bake.
2. Plug the power cord in a standard electrical
outlet.
3. Turn the control dial clockwise from the OFF
position to the desired browning setting.
Setting #1 for the lightest color waffles and
setting #6 for the darkest color waffles. We
recommend using setting #3 or #4 for golden
brown waffles.
The red indicator light will turn on to signal power.
Allow the waffle iron to preheat. When the waffle
iron has reached desired temperature, the green
indicator light will turn on and the audible tone
will sound. You are now ready to begin baking.

Note: The first time you use your waffle iron
it may have a slight odor and may smoke
a bit. This is normal, and common to
appliances with a nonstick surface.
4. Lift lid of waffle iron by grasping the handle
and pushing back and up in one fluid motion.
Lid will stay open at 105° position until you
lower it.
Never take your waffle iron 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
5. Pour batter onto the center of the lower waffle
grid. Use a heat-proof spatula to spread
batter evenly over the grids. Close the lid.
The waffle iron will automatically latch shut
when you lower the lid. The green light will
turn off but the red light will stay illuminated.
6. Baking time is determined by the browning
level that you chose in Step 3. It may take
up to 4 minutes to bake your waffle on
setting #6.
7. When the waffle is ready to eat, the green
light will turn on and the audible tone will
sound. Remove the waffle by gently
loosening the edges with a heat-proof plastic
spatula or wooden spatula. Never use metal
utensils, as they will damage the nonstick
coating.
8. When you are finished baking, turn the
control dial counterclockwise to the OFF
setting. The red indicator light will turn off.
Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
Allow the waffle iron to cool down completely
before handling.
CLEANING AND CARE
Once you have finished baking, turn the control
dial to the OFF position and remove plug from
electrical outlet. Leave top lid open so grids
begin to cool. Allow waffle iron to cool down
completely before handling.
4
Store with cord wrapped
securely under base. For
compact storage, stand
waffle iron on back end
with control panel facing
up. The waffle iron has
been designed with a
special latching feature
so the lid stays closed
during storage
TIPS TO MAKE
PERFECT WAFFLES
We recommend setting #3 or #4 for golden
brown waffles, either from mix or homemade.
If you prefer crisper, darker waffles, increase the
browning control. For lighter waffles decrease the
browning control.
For evenly filled waffles, pour the batter onto the
center of the lower grid and spread out evenly to
the edges. The entire lower grid should be filled.
We recommend using 1/3–1/2 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.
