When the warming drawer is on in continuous mode
(co), it Will remain on until turned off manuallyl To
avoid a fire hazard or burns, exercise caution when
operating the unit in c0ntinuous mode:
The warming drawer is equipped with four temperature
settings and a timer that can be set for one, two, three
or four hours. The warming drawer can also be set for
continuous operation. See the table on the facing page for
suggested settings for different foods.
Do not block the humidity vents on the back of the
drawer front and along the left and right sides of the
drawer. Excessive heat buildup can occur.

Things to Know Before You Start
Preheating
•
•
Select the humidity level. Slide the lever located on
the back of the drawer face to the desired position.
To increase humidity inside the drawer, slide the lever
closer to the MOIST symbol. To decrease humidity
inside the drawer, slide the lever closer to the CRISP
symbol. The lever can also be positioned anywhere
between the MOIST and CRISP settings.
2.
Push the ON/OFF
3.
Push the key for the desired temperature
For best results, preheat your warming drawer for
about 20 minutes before use. If you put hot food into
a cool, confined area, any steam that is present will
condense. If you preheat your warming drawer, there
will be less chance of water due to condensation.
Preheat times vary depending on the temperature setting.

warming chamber, maintaining the water content of

the temperature to PROOF or LOW, depending upon
your personal preference. Do not drag plates across
the drawer. They may scratch the drawer surface.

usage temperature from the plate manufacturer. It is
not necessary to preheat the warming drawer when

CAUTION
•
To prevent permanent damage to the appliance
surfaces, do not use abrasive cleaners or scrubbers.
•
Do not allow acids (citrus juices, tomato sauces,
etc.) to remain on l:he warming drawers'- surfaces.
The finish may stain.
•
Do not try to remove heavy spills with a sharp object
such as a knife or metal spatula. Sharp objects may
scratch the surfaces.
•
Always wipe stainless steel surfaces in the direction

For the front face of warming drawers with a painted
finish, clean with a solution of mild detergent and hot
water. Rinse and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use abrasive
cleaners or scrubbers. They may permanently damage the
finish.
Gasket
The gasket is located around the edge of the drawer
opening, below the control panel.
Gently clean the gasket with a solution of mild detergent
and hot water. Rinse and dry with a soft cloth. The gasket
material is soft, so be careful not to crush or damage
it. Damaging the gasket will cause a poor heat seal and
result in poor warming drawer performance.
Control Panel
Clean the control panel with a soft cloth soaked with a
solution of mild detergent and hot water. Rinse and dry
with a soft cloth. Exercise caution to avoid introduction of
liquids into the area behind the control panel. Do not use
abrasive cleaners or scrubbers. They may permanently
damage the finish or scrap off the letters and graphics.
Drawer Slides
The warming drawer has slides positioned on each side
of the drawer. They allow the drawer to slide in and out
smoothly. Remove the drawer from the slides to make
cleaning easy or to access the serial number plate. The
drawer slides themselves do not require maintenance.
