Sandwich Press

Before first use

Ensure any stickers and packaging are removed from the product. Wipe over plates with a dampened cloth and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.

Note: When using your Café Contact Grill and Sandwich Press for the first time you may notice a fine smoke haze being emitted from the unit. This is normal. It is due to the initial heating of internal components.

Using your Café Contact Grill and

Sandwich Press

1. Plug the power cord into a 230-240 volt

AC power outlet.

2. Turn the power ON.

3. Select your desired temperature setting to suit the type of food you wish to cook.

Turn the temperature dial to Contact Grill or Sandwich Press.

4. Preheat until the Ready light (green) illuminates.

Note: The Café Contact Grill and Sandwich

Press can be used to grill foods with the top plate opened or closed.

5. After you have completed grilling or toasting, turn the power OFF.

Note: Ensure that the cord is kept well away from the cooking plates when in use.

Grilling Meats and Vegetables

Note: Always turn your temperature dial to

Contact Grill and, preheat for 3-5 minutes.

The Ready light will illuminate.

1. Always spray the grill plates with cooking spray before placing meat, seafood or vegetables onto the grill plate.

2. Gently lower the lid (if desired), by pulling down the handle. The café-design floating hinge system will adjust automatically ensuring the top cooking plate lies evenly on your food for perfect grilling everytime.

3. If desired, halfway through cooking, turn your food over to achieve grill marks on both the top and bottom of your food.

4. When cooking some foods you may want to re-spray the top grill plate to prevent food from sticking.

5. The cooking plates are coated in a durable high grade non-stick coating. Some foods that are marinated or coated may cause the food to stick to the grill plates.

To free the food use a plastic spatula or wooden spoon. Never use a sharp metal object as this will damage the non-stick surface.

Using your Café Contact Grill & Sandwich Press continued

Note: The Warm Up and Ready Lights are thermostatically controlled and will cycle on and off during cooking to ensure that the correct temperature is maintained.

Caution: Do not touch the outside of the top of the grill/press, when in use. Ensure you use the handle to open the top grill plate.

Avoid touching hot surfaces. This grill/press may generate steam from between the grill plates while food is cooking and when the top plate is opened. Take care when removing food from the grill.

Toasting Sandwiches and Focaccias

Note: Always turn your temperature dial to

Sandwich Press and preheat until the Ready light illuminates before use.

1. Butter the outside of the bread, if desired.

The sandwich filling will be placed between the unbuttered sides of the bread.

2. Place the bread onto the cooking plate, then spoon the recommended quantity of filling onto the bread.

3. Place the top slice of bread on top of the filling.

4. Gently close the lid.

5. Allow the sandwiches to toast for approximately 3 minutes, depending on the bread, filling and personal taste. Your

Café Contact Grill and Sandwich Press toasts both sides of bread at the same time.

Hints for best results when grilling

1. Tender cuts of meat such as scotch fillet and sirloin are ideal for grilling. Tougher cuts of meat such as topside or blade steak will tenderise if marinated for a few hours or overnight.

2. Avoid overcooking meat as the texture will toughen.

3. Recommended cuts;

Beef = Sirloin, Rump, Rib Eye,

Fillet or T-Bone

Lamb = Leg Steak, Fillet, Loin or Cutlets

Pork = Butterfly Steaks, Spare Ribs,

Leg Steaks or Fillets

4. You can also grill diced meat on skewers for kebabs.

5. The Café Contact Grill and Sandwich

Press can grill meats over 1 inch (2.5cm) thickness with ease. If cooking meats with a bone it is recommended that it is no larger than 1.5cm thick to ensure even cooking.

6. Ideal for cooking a variety of meats, including beef, fish and poultry. Take care when grilling fish, use a plastic spatula.

7. The sloping grilling surface allows the fats and juices to drain into the drip tray for healthy, fat free cooking.

8. When cutting meats, chicken, vegetables or seafood for kebabs, cut evenly and uniform in size to ensure even cooking.

Never cross - contaminate foods: Do not cut raw vegetables and raw meats with the same knife or on the same chopping board. Try to use seperate chopping boards for meats, vegetables and seafood.

Do not cut cooked meats on the same chopping board as you prepared the raw meat unless the board and knife have been thoroughly sanitised and cleaned in hot soapy water.

9. The large non-stick flat (bottom) cooking plate is ideal for cooking a variety of foods such as eggs, bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes and onions.

Hints for best results when toasting snacks

1. Any type or shape of bread can be used, e.g. white, wholemeal, wholegrain, sourdough, bread rolls, bagels.

2. Various thicknesses of bread can be used from thick to thin slice. Turkish pide or focaccia are also suitable.

3. Sweet breads with a high sugar content

(e.g. fruit loaf, raisin bread, brioche) will brown more quickly than non-sweetened breads.

4. It is not necessary to butter the outside of your bread as the Café Press has non-stick cooking plates.

5. Be careful when biting into snacks containing fillings such as cheese, tomato or jam as they retain heat and can burn if eaten too quickly.

Care and Cleaning

DuPont Teflon® Platinum Pro Non-stick Coating

Your Café Contact Grill and Sandwich Press features a special scratch and abrasiveresistant non-stick coating that makes it safe to use metal utensils when cooking.

Sunbeam recommends that care is taken with the non-stick coating particularly when using metal utensils.

Do not use sharp objects or cut food on top of the Café Contact Grill and Sandwich Press.

Sunbeam will not be liable for damage to the non-stick coating where metal utensils have been misused.

When cleaning the non-stick coating do not use metal (or other abrasive) scourers. After cleaning, dry the Café Contact Grill and

Sandwich Press and lid thoroughly with a soft cloth before storing.

Always turn the power OFF and

REMOVE the plug from the power point before cleaning.

Quick cleaning method

Always turn the power OFF and remove plug after use and before cleaning. The cooking plates are coated with a non-stick surface, and there are no dirt traps, therefore little cleaning is required. Once cooled, simply wipe the cooking plates with a dampened cloth.

Do not immerse your Café Contact Grill and

Sandwich Press in water or any other liquid. Do not use abrasive scouring pads or powders.

Do not place your Café Contact Grill and

Sandwich Press in a dishwasher.

Always clean after each use to prevent a build up of cooking residue on the grill.

To clean the exterior

Simply wipe over with a dampened cloth and polish dry with a dry soft cloth. Do not use steel wool, scouring pads or abrasive cleaners as these will scratch the surface.

Storage

Your Café Contact Grill and Sandwich Press will store in an upright position in cupboards, shelves or on the bench top. Simply bring the plates together and located on the right cast metal arm, turn the securing latch. This will lock the plates together.

Always allow the grill/press to cool after use.

Once cooled, you can clean the cooking plates.

Always allow the contents of the drip tray to cool before removing the tray from its position and discarding the contents.

Wash the drip tray in warm soapy water.
