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.
Extension cords may be used if care is exercised
in their use.
If an 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.

Before using your Cuisinart® Breakfast Central™
for the first time, wipe housing and plates with a
damp cloth to remove any dust from the warehouse or shipping.
Note: The Cuisinart® Breakfast Central™ plates
have 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.

ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
To insert plates
1. Place the closed unit on a clean, flat surface
where you intend to use it.
1. Plug the power cord into a standard
electrical outlet.
2. Adjust the temperature knob to the desired
browning setting.
2. Lift lid by grasping the
handle and pushing up in
one fluid motion. Lid will
stay open at a 105° position until you lower it.
3. The red indicator light will turn on to signal that
the power is on and the unit will begin to heat.
We recommend preheating in the closed position.
When the unit has reached desired temperature,
the green indicator light will turn on and the audible tone will sound. You are now ready to begin.
3. Insert one plate at a time.
Waffle plates: Each plate
is designed to fit in either
the upper housing
or the lower housing
of the waffle maker.
The word lower or
upper is embossed
on the right side of
each plate.
Pancake plate: The 4-slot plate is designed to
fit in the lower housing only. The word LOWER is
embossed on the right side of the plate. The flat
plate is designed to fit in the upper housing only.
The word UPPER is embossed on the right side
of the plate.
Note: The first time you use your unit it may have
a slight odor and may smoke a bit. This is normal,
and common to appliances with a nonstick surface.
4. Please refer to the Cooking Chart on pg. 7 for
further details on preparing foods.
4. Locate the two holes at the back of the housing. Tilt the back end of the plate and line up the
pegs at the back of the plate with the holes at
the housing. Slide the plate underneath the holes
and push down the front end of the plate. It will
snap into place.
CLEANING AND CARE
When you are finished cooking, turn the temperature knob to Off and unplug the power cord from
the wall outlet. Allow the unit to cool down completely before handling.
Press the plate release buttons to remove plates
from the housing. Be sure that the plates have
cooled completely before handling (at least 30 minutes). The plates can be washed in the dishwasher.
Do not use metallic objects such as knives or forks
for cleaning. Do not use a scouring pad for cleaning.
The nonstick coating can be damaged.
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 liquidS.
Any other servicing should be performed by an
authorized service representative.
To remove plates
1. Locate the plate release buttons on the right side
of the unit. Press firmly on button and the plate
will pop up slightly from the base.
2. Grasp the plate with two hands, slide it out from
the holes at the housing,
and lift it out of the base.
3. Press on the other plate
release button to remove
the second plate in the
same manner.

STORAGE
purchase.
We recommend that you visit our website,
www.cuisinart.com for a fast, efficient way to
complete your product registration. However, product
registration does not eliminate the need for the
consumer to maintain the original proof of purchase in
order to obtain the warranty benefits. In the event that
you do not have proof of purchase date, the purchase
date for purposes of this warranty will be the date of
manufacture.
If your Cuisinart® Breakfast Central™ should prove to be
defective within the warranty period, we will repair it, or
if we think necessary, replace it. To obtain warranty
service, simply call our toll-free number, 1-800-7260190, for additional information from our Customer
Service Representatives, or send the defective product
to Customer Service at Cuisinart, 7475 North Glen
Harbor Blvd., Glendale, AZ 85307.
To facilitate the speed and accuracy of your return,
please enclose $10.00 for shipping and handling of the
product. Please pay by check or money order
(California residents need only supply proof of
purchase and should call 1-800-726-0190 for shipping
instructions).
NOTE: For added protection and secure handling of
any Cuisinart product that is being returned, we
recommend you use a traceable, insured delivery
service. Cuisinart cannot be held responsible for
in-transit damage or for packages that are not
delivered to us. Lost and/or damaged products are not
covered under warranty. Please be sure to include your
return address, daytime phone number, description of
the product defect, product model number (located on
bottom of product), original date of purchase, and any
other information pertinent to the product’s return.
Your Cuisinart® Breakfast Central™ has been
manufactured to the strictest specifications and has
been designed for use only in 120-volt outlets with the
authorized accessories and replacement parts.
This warranty expressly excludes any defects or
damages caused by attempted use of this unit with a
converter, accessories, replacement parts, or repair
service other than those that have been authorized by
Cuisinart.
This warranty does not cover any damage caused by
accident, misuse, shipment or other than ordinary
household use.
This warranty excludes all incidental or consequential
damages. Some states do not allow the exclusion or
limitation of these damages, so these exclusions may
not apply to you.
Store with plates inserted and cord wrapped
securely around the back of the unit. For compact
storage, stand the unit on its back end with the
control panel facing up.
TIPS TO MAKE
PERFECT WAFFLES
•Setting #1 will produce the lightest color waffles.
Setting #6 will produce the darkest color waffles.
Experiment to determine which setting produces
the best waffle color for you. We recommend
setting #4 or #5 for golden brown waffles.
•We recommend using a heaping 11/2 cups of
batter to fill the lower grid. Be careful not to
over-mix the batter – this will produce dense,
chewy waffles.
•For evenly filled waffles, pour the batter onto
the center of the lower grid and spread it out
evenly to the edges with a heat-proof spatula.
The entire lower grid should be filled.
•Waffles are best when made to order, but baked
waffles may be kept warm in a 200°F oven.
Place them in a baking pan or cover loosely with
foil while in the oven. Waffles wrapped in foil
may lose their crispiness.
•Allow to cool completely. Use waxed paper to
keep waffles separated, and place in plastic
food storage bag and reheat in a toaster or
toaster oven.
WARRANTY
Limited Three-Year Warranty
This warranty is available to consumers only.
You are a consumer if you own a Cuisinart® Breakfast
Central™ that was purchased at retail for personal,
family or household use. Except as otherwise required
under applicable law, this warranty is not available to
retailers or other commercial purchasers or owners.
We warrant that your Cuisinart® Breakfast Central™ will
be free of defects in materials and workmanship under
normal home use for 3 years from the date of original
5
CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS ONLY:
California law provides that for In-Warranty Service,
California residents have the option of returning a
nonconforming product (A) to the store where it was
purchased or (B) to another retail store that sells
Cuisinart products of the same type.
The retail store shall then, at its discretion, either repair
the product, refer the consumer to an independent
repair facility, replace the product, or refund the
purchase price less the amount directly attributable to
the consumer’s prior usage of the product. If the above
two options do not result in the appropriate relief to the
consumer, the consumer may then take the product to
an independent repair facility if service or repair can be
economically accomplished. Cuisinart and not the
consumer will be responsible for the reasonable cost of
such service, repair, replacement, or refund for
nonconforming products under warranty.
California residents may also, according to their
preference, return nonconforming products directly to
Cuisinart for repair, or if necessary, replacement, by
calling our Consumer Service Center toll-free at
1-800-726-0190.
Cuisinart will be responsible for the cost of the repair,
replacement, and shipping and handling for such
products under warranty.
BEFORE RETURNING YOUR
CUISINART PRODUCT
If you are experiencing problems with your Cuisinart
product, we suggest that you call our Consumer
Service Center at 1-800-726-0190 before returning the
product to be serviced. If servicing is needed, a
representative can confirm whether the product is
under warranty and direct you to the nearest service
location.
Important: If the nonconforming product is to be
serviced by someone other than Cuisinart’s Authorized
Service Center, please remind the servicer to call our
Consumer Service Center at 1-800-726-0190 to ensure
that the problem is properly diagnosed, the product
serviced with the correct parts, and the product is still

Cinnamon Sugar Waffles
Maple Bacon Waffles
The aroma of sweet cinnamon that fills your
kitchen while these are baking is reason enough
to whip up a batch of these delicious waffles!
When making the bacon for these waffles, be
sure to save the bacon grease to incorporate
into the batter – it gives the waffles a tasty
smoky flavor. If that is too intense, vegetable oil
can be used in its place.

Savory Cheddar-Chive
Waffles
Chicken and Waffles
This is a Southern staple in many households
that you can easily make for your family. The
chicken is best when marinated overnight, but if
you are in a hurry you can have it marinate for a
minimum of 3 hours.
These crispy, savory waffles are good to serve
with soup or your favorite chili in place of corn
muffins. You may also try them with scrambled
eggs and bacon for brunch or supper.

rack.
7.To serve, halve the waffles on the diagonal
and serve half with one piece of fried chicken
and maple syrup on the side.
3.To serve, halve each waffle. Top with whipped
cream, then some of the macerated strawberries. Drizzle a bit of the juice from the
strawberries (collected at the bottom of the
mixing bowl) over the strawberries. Dust with
confectioners’ sugar if desired. Per waffle you
should only need about 1⁄3 cup of the whipped
cream and 1⁄3 cup of the strawberries.
*If you do not have a deep fryer, the chicken
can easily be fried on the stovetop. In a large
sauté pan, add no more than 1 inch of oil and
set the pan over medium-high heat. Using a
deep fat thermometer, bring oil to 375°F. Fry
the chicken in batches, about 2 pieces at a
time. You do not want to crowd the pan or
the oil will cool down too much and not fry
well. Fry, flipping once, until chicken is nicely
browned, about 4 to 5 minutes per side.
Chicken should have an internal temperature
of 165°F. Transfer chicken to the prepared
cooling rack.
