We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety messages. This is the safety alert symbol. This symbol alerts you to hazards that can kill or hurt you and others. All safety messages will be preceded by the safety alert symbol and the word “DANGER” or “WARNING.” These words mean: DANGER You will be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow instructions. WARNING You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow instructions. All safety messages will identify the hazard, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can happen if the instructions are not followed. IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, injury to persons, or damage when using the warming drawer, follow basic precautions, including the following: ■ Proper Installation – Be sure the warming drawer is properly installed and grounded by a qualified technician. ■ Never Use the Warming Drawer for Warming or Heating the Room. ■ Do Not Leave Children Alone – Children should not be left alone or unattended in area where warming drawer is in use. They should never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of the warming drawer. ■ Wear Proper Apparel – Loose-fitting or hanging garments should never be worn while using the warming drawer. ■ User Servicing – Do not repair or replace any part of the warming drawer unless specifically recommended in the manual. All other servicing should be referred to a qualified technician. ■ Storage in Warming Drawer – Flammable materials should not be stored in a warming drawer. ■ Do Not Use Water on Grease Fires – Smother fire or flame or use dry chemical or foam-type extinguisher. ■ Use Only Dry Potholders – Moist or damp potholders on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam. Do not let potholder touch hot heating elements. Do not use a towel or other bulky cloth. ■ ■ ■ ■ Use Care When Opening Door – Let hot air or steam escape before removing or replacing food. Do Not Heat Unopened Food Containers – Build-up of pressure may cause container to burst and result in injury. Placement of Warming Drawer Racks – Always place warming drawer racks in desired location while warming drawer is cool. If rack must be moved while warming drawer is hot, do not let potholder contact hot heating element in warming drawer. DO NOT TOUCH HEATING ELEMENTS OR INTERIOR SURFACES OF WARMING DRAWER – Heating elements may be hot even though they are dark in color. Interior surfaces of a warming drawer become hot enough to cause burns. During and after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials contact heating elements or interior surfaces of warming drawer until they have had sufficient time to cool. Other surfaces of the warming drawer may become hot enough to cause burns – among these surfaces are warming drawer vent openings and surfaces near these openings and warming drawer doors.

Timer Override Light BEFORE USING YOUR WARMING DRAWER USING YOUR WARMING DRAWER Electrical Requirements Setting the Controls WARNING WARNING Food Poisoning Hazard Do not let food sit for more than one hour before or after cooking. Doing so can result in food poisoning or sickness. Electrical Shock Hazard Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet. Do not remove ground prong. Do not use an adapter. Do not use an extension cord. Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, fire, or electrical shock. It is important to make sure you have the proper electrical connection: A 115 Volt, 60 Hz., AC only 15 or 20 amperes electrical supply, properly grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances, is required. It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only your warming drawer, be provided. Recommended grounding method For your personal safety, this appliance must be grounded. This appliance is equipped with a power supply cord having a 3 prong grounding plug. To minimize possible shock hazard, the cord must be plugged into a mating, 3 prong, grounding-type wall receptacle, grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances. If a mating wall receptacle is not available, it is the personal responsibility of the customer to have a properly grounded, 3 prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician. Power “ON” switch Press the Power “ON” switch to turn the unit on. Power “ON” Indicator light The Indicator light is located on the right side of the Timer Override switch. Once the power is turned on, the red indicator light will illuminate. When the unit is turned off automatically or manually, the Indicator light will go out and the drawer will begin to cool. Temperature control knob The temperature is controlled by rotating the control knob to the desired setting. The temperature ranges from approximately 90º F (Lo) to 225º F (Hi). Timer The Warming Drawer has an automatic 4 hour timer. After 4 hours, the unit will shut off. Although the automatic timer is set for a 4 hour period, do not leave any food items in the Warming Drawer for more than one hour. Bacterial growth may occur. NOTE: The Timer can be turned off using the Timer Override switch. 5 Timer Override switch The Timer Override switch allows you to run the unit past 4 hours, until it is turned off manually with the Power switch. It is recommended that the switch be left in the OFF position, unless longer warming times are required. When the Override switch is in the ON position, the light on the switch will illuminate to notify that the Timer has been bypassed. IMPORTANT: Although the Timer can be bypassed by using the Timer Override switch, never allow food items to remain in the Warming Drawer longer than one hour. Bacterial growth may occur. High position lets you stack items in the drawer. To stack items: ■ Moist-Dry slide. Rack will fit from front to back or side to side. NOTE: When placing front to back, drawer must be fully open. MOIST DRY The Moist-Dry slide allows you to open or close the vent slots in the door. The MOIST setting holds the moisture in. The DRY setting allows steam/moisture to escape from the drawer. ■ ■ To keep foods moist, put slide on MOIST, closing vents. Closing the vents seals the drawer, keeping hot food soft and moist. ■ It may be necessary to cover some foods and use a higher temperature setting with larger loads. ■ To warm both cooked foods and empty serving dishes at the same time, place the serving dishes on the drawer bottom during preheat and the food on the high rack position after preheat. ■ Foods contained in heat-safe glass or glass ceramic utensils may require a higher temperature setting than food contained in metal utensils. ■ Extra time should be allotted for the drawer temperature to stabilize, when adding items or checking food. NOTE: Condensation may form on inner surfaces. Pans To keep foods crisp, put slide on DRY, opening vents. With the vents open the moisture is released from the drawer, keeping hot food crisp. ■ The pans provided can withstand oven temperatures and are approved for oven cooking. ■ If not cooking in pan, warm pans during preheat time. Food temperature will fall below recommended levels if pan is not warm. ■ Ensure pan support is properly installed in locator notch before inserting pans.

For second proofing of dough, place temperature safe bowl directly on bottom of drawer. 7. Follow steps 2 through 4. Using Aluminum Foil Do not line drawer with aluminum foil. ■ Keep food covered if it was cooked with a cover on it. ■ Use narrow strips of foil to shield piecrust edges from further browning in drawer. ■ Place tent-shaped foil loosely over meat or poultry to prevent dryness and further browning while in the drawer. ■ The use of aluminum foil to cover foods may cause moisture to collect and drip into the drawer. Explosion Hazard Do not store flammable materials such as gasoline near this appliance. Doing so can result in death, explosion, or fire. Drawer Slides ■ The drawer slides allow you to fully extend the drawer for easier cleaning. If necessary, the drawer can be removed. ■ Load capacity for the drawer and slides is 100 lbs (45 kg).
