from water hazards or sinks, and is in a well-lighted work area away from children and visitors.
4. Inspect the grill to ensure all parts have been provided (i.e. - catch tray and feet x4).
5.
The installation of the grill must conform to the NATIONAL ELECTRIC CODE AND ALL LOCAL ELECTRIC CODES AND ORDINANCES AND ALL THE LOCAL ELECTRICAL COMPANY RULES AND REGULATIONS.
Additionally we recommend that the grill is allowed a 4” spacing surrounding the unit in order to provide
adequate ventilation.
NOTICE: Local codes regarding installation vary greatly by area. The National Fire Protection Association,
Inc, states in its NFPA 96 latest edition (see NFPA page at the beginning of this manual) that local codes are
“authority having jurisdiction” when it comes to requirements for installation of equipment. Therefore,
installation should comply with all local codes.

Feet
Install feet by screwing each foot into the threaded openings on the bottom of the grill. Failure to use
feet will void warranty and could cause unsafe conditions.
Leveling
Level unit by adjusting the four feet and tighten securely. The adjustable feet have an adjustment of one inch for
lineup with other Centaur countertop lines. Check the feet every 60 days to ensure they are tight.
Assembly
Take the waste tray and slide into the runners below the elements and place into the rack. Once in position, the
waste tray will catch any food product crumbs, grease or drippings.
COMMISSIONING:
Commissioning of your new grill is of the utmost importance. Commissioning is the thorough and methodical testing
of the equipment, sub systems, and systems to ensure that the final product functions properly and safely at the
work site. By identifying any potential problems (i.e.: equipment location, ventilation, local fire/electrical codes,
installation, operator training and certification) prior to equipment being placed into service, costly outages and
potential damages may be avoided.
SAFETY ALWAYS.

Operating Instructions
Operating the Electric Panini or Sandwich Grill
Before operating grill, it should be checked to see that it is sitting level. Adjust the feet to level the grill. Be sure the
catch tray has been properly placed.
Wipe away all the petroleum oil that is covering the plates. This is only a protectant for shipping. Wipe away as
much as you can and then heat up the unit to burn off the remaining oil. Once the excess petroleum oil is burned
away, use a pumice stone, grill stone or stainless steel brush can be used to brush away the burnt oil.
Allow 20-40 minutes for Grilling plates to heat up.
NOTE: Upon first use, grill may omit a metal-burning smell.
This is normal and smell will regress with use.
Season the surface:
The panini /sandwich grills have a cast iron cooking surface. Season the surface with vegetable oil.
Clean the cooking surface thoroughly. After the cooking surface has been thoroughly cleaned, it should be
seasoned to prevent food from sticking. Before using, and after use, thoroughly scour and season the cooking
surface by heating the surface in the following manner:
1. Adjust the On/Off switch to the “On” position and adjust the temperature control dial to 350°F.
2. Use a clean cloth, not a spatula, and spread a thin film of cooking oil or fat over the grill cooking surface.
This film should remain on the hot grill for 30 minutes.
The grill surface and grease will be HOT.
3. Remove the excess oil/fat and wipe clean.
The grill surface and grease will be HOT.
4. Apply another film of cooking oil or fat over the hot cooking surface for another 30 minutes and, again,
remove the excess oil/fat and wipe clean.
The grill surface is now ready for use.
EVEN WITH CAREFUL SEASONING, FOOD MAY STICK TO THE GRILL COOKING SURFACE UNTIL THE
GRILL PLATE IS “BROKEN IN”.
Temperature Control
The temperature is thermostatically controlled. Be sure the On/Off switch in switched in the “On” position and
adjust the thermostat dial to the desired setting. NOTE: Consider a lower heat for grilling meats (360°F-430°F)
Cooking
1. Adjust the On/Off switch to the “On” position.
2. Set the thermostat dial knob at the desired temperature.
3. After a short preheating period, the thermostat will automatically maintain the selected temperature.
4. When the set temperature desired is met, the indicator light will de-illuminate.
5. Ensure the grill is on and has met the desired temperature.
6. Using the handle, raise the top of the grill to expose the top of the grill plate.
7. Place the food product onto the grill and, using the handle, lower the top grill plate down onto the
food product.
8. After each time the grill is loaded, with a cloth, paper towel or special spatula, push the excess grease
into the catch tray. If necessary, empty the grease receptacle before you resume grilling
The grill surface and grease will be HOT.

Cleaning Instructions
•
ALWAYS unplug the grill before cleaning.
•
DO NOT use any cleaning fluids that can be harmful to humans.
•
DO NOT hose down, immerse or pressure wash any part of the grill, excluding the catch tray.

ALWAYS DISCONNECT OR UNPLUG THE ELECTRICAL POWER FROM THE GRILL BEFORE
CLEANING.
RECOMMENDED CLEANING
It takes very little time and effort to keep the grill attractive and performing at top efficiency. If grease is permitted
to accumulate, it will form a gummy cake and then carbonize into a hard substance that is extremely difficult to
remove. To prevent this condition, please follow the cleaning steps below:
PART
Cast IRon
Plates
REQUIRED ACTION
FREQUENCY
