Hints & Tips

Using the Waffle Maker

n

The Waffle Maker has been designed with a handle that locks down to secure the contents when cooking.

n

Always preheat your Waffle Maker completely before using. n

The lid of the Waffle Maker should be closed whilst preheating.

n

For evenly filled waffles, pour the batter onto the centre of each grid and spread out evenly to the edges. n

Do not overfill the plates, this may cause the batter to overflow.

n

Waffles are best served hot, immediately after cooking, but baked waffles, may be kept warm in a low oven. Do not wrap in foil as they may loose their crispiness.

n

Baked waffles may be frozen. Allow to cool completely, place in plastic food bag. Use baking parchment to keep the waffles separated and freeze. Reheat in a toaster or under a grill.

n

For added flavour, serve your waffles with fruit syrups, warmed fruit compote, fresh berries, chopped fruit or yogurt.

n

For sweeter waffles serve with a dusting of icing sugar, whipped cream, ice cream or chocolate sauce.

11

n

For best results, allow waffle mixture to rest for a few minutes before pouring into the machine.

n

Use the waffle mixture as soon as possible, do not leave overnight.

Cleaning & Maintenance

n

Before first use and after every use, clean each part thoroughly.

n

Once you have finished cooking, turn the selector control to the ‘Off’ position, unplug the power cord from the mains, allow the appliance to cool for at least 30 minutes before handling.

n

The waffle plates can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher. Do not use metallic objects such as knives when cleaning. This will damage the non stick coating. Use wooden or heatproof plastic utensils only.

n

The housing base, cover and control knob can be wiped clean with a soft, dry cloth. For tough stains dampen cloth. Never use an abrasive cleaner or harsh pad.

n

Never leave plastic utensils in contact with the appliance.

n

Make sure all the parts are clean and dry before storing.

n

Never wrap the cord around the outside of the appliance.

n

Never immerse the plug, lead or housing in water or any other liquid.

n
