Reverse Side
4-Slice Belgian Waffle Maker
For your safety and continued enjoyment of this product, always read the instruction book carefully before using.
When using an electrical appliance, basic safety
precautions should always be followed, including
the following:
2. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles
and dials.
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.
9. Do not let power cord hang over edge of
table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
10. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric
burner, or in a heated oven.
11. Do not use appliance for other
than intended use.
12. Always unplug the unit when
finished baking waffles.
13. To safely disconnect power at any time,
remove the plug from the outlet.
14. Extreme caution must be used when
moving an appliance containing hot oil or
other hot liquids.
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.
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.

Remove all packaging and any promotional labels
or stickers from your waffle maker. Be sure that
all parts (listed above, Parts and Features) of
your new waffle maker 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® 4-Slice Belgian
Waffle Maker for the first time, wipe housing and
baking plates with a damp cloth to remove any
dust from the warehouse or shipping.
Note: The Cuisinart® 4-Slice Belgian Waffle Maker
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 maker.

3.Baking Plates – Die-cast aluminum plates
bake four deep-pocket Belgian waffles.
4.Temperature Slide Control – five adjustable
browning settings.
5.Indicator Lights – Red indicator light signals
power ON; green indicator light signals when
waffle maker is ready to bake and when
waffles are cooked and ready to eat.
6.Audible Signal (not shown) – Signals when
waffle maker is ready to bake and when
waffles are cooked and ready to eat.
7.Cord Storage (not shown) – Cord wraps
around the back of the unit, and unit stands
on back end for storing (see page 4).
8.Rubber Feet – Feet keep unit steady and
won’t mark countertop.

1. Place the closed waffle maker on a clean, flat
surface where you intend to use it.
2. Plug the power cord into a standard
electrical outlet.
3. Move the temperature slide control to the
desired browning setting – setting #1 for the
lightest color waffles and setting #5 for the
darkest color waffles.
The red indicator light will turn on to signal that the
power is on and the unit will begin to heat. When the
waffle maker has reached desired temperature, the
green indicator light will turn on and the audible tone
will sound (the red light will turn off at this time). You
are now ready to begin.
Once you have finished baking, remove plug from
electrical outlet. Leave lid open so grids begin to
cool. Allow waffle maker to cool down completely
before handling.
Never take your waffle maker 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 also 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, 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.
Any other servicing should be performed by an
authorized service representative.
Note: The first time you use your waffle maker it
may have a slight odor and may smoke a bit. This
is normal, and common to appliances with a
nonstick surface.
6. Baking time is determined by the browning
level that you chose in Step 3. It may take
up to 6 minutes to bake your waffles on
setting #5.
7. When the waffles are ready, the green light
will turn on and the audible tone will sound.
Remove the waffles 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, unplug the
power cord from the wall outlet. Allow the
waffle maker to cool down completely before
4. Lift lid of waffle maker by grasping the handle
and pushing up in one fluid motion. Lid will
stay open at a 105° position until you lower it.
Locking Lid
Store with cord wrapped
securely under base. For
compact storage, stand
waffle maker on back end
with control panel facing up.
The waffle maker has been
designed with a special
latching feature so the lid
stays closed during storage.
5. P
our batter onto the center of the lower
waffle grid. Use a heat-proof spatula to
spread batter evenly over the grid. Close
the lid. The green light will turn off but the
red light will stay illuminated.
