Congratulations on purchasing our SALTON WOK. Each unit is manufactured to ensure
safety and reliability. Before using this appliance for the first time, please read the
instruction manual carefully and keep it for future reference.
The Salton Wok is controlled by a variable thermostat with a pilot light. The
thermostat is self-adjustable, and the pilot light indicates when the wok is at the
desired temperature.
The wok has a top cooking heat of 220˚C, and with a double non-stick coating, is
ideal for fast and convenient cooking.
Cool-touch Bakelite handles on the wok and glass lid prevent burning and ensure
safety while using the wok.
The glass lid provides easy viewing, while a steam hole in the lid allows excess
steam to escape safely.
The Salton wok is 9cm deep, and has a capacity of 5L – perfect for the larger family.
A steaming rack is provided with the wok, to allow greater versatility.
The Bakelite base is specially designed to protect your countertop from the heat
created by the wok. The base also has rubber-tipped feet to ensure the wok does not
slip during use, and provides added stability
