In time, the nonstick finish may darken over the healing element. This is normal and
will not seriously alter the release properties of the surface. To remove this discoloration,
use a commercial cleaner designed for cleaning nonstick surfaces. These cleaners are
available at most grocer y and hardware stores. For best results, follow the
manufacturer’s instructions, being careful that any cleaning solution coming in contact
with the exterior of the appliance is wiped off. After treating the griddle with a commercial
cleaner, it is recommended that the cooking surface be wiped lightly with a cooking oil
before using.
The outside finish of the griddle is easy to keep attractive and looking new. Simply
wipe away spills and drips as they occur. If food should happen to bur n on, it is easily
removed with warm, sudsy water and a dish cloth. Any food residue remaining can be
whisked away with a gentle stroke of a nylon mesh pad. Rinse and wipe dry.
IMPORTANT: To insure continued accuracy of the heat control, avoid rough
handling in use and storage. Any maintenance required for this product other than
normal household care and cleaning, should be performed by our Factory.

Leg extenders may be flipped down to raise the back of the griddle so that fats drain away
from the food and into the drip tray while cooking greasy items such as bacon. (Keep the
leg extenders flipped up to keep the griddle surface level if you are cooking runny items
like eggs, pancake batter, etc.)

We recommend that you record the following information for warranty
purposes: Model #________
Purchase Date:_____________Dealer:__________________________
This is a UL Listed appliance. The following important safeguards are
recommended by most portable appliance manufacturers.
IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
To reduce the risk of personal injury or property damage when using electrical
appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the
following:
1. READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles. Use hot mitts or potholders.
3. To protect against electrical shock, do not immerse control, cord or plug in
water or other liquid.
4. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near
children.
5. Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to cool
before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning the appliance.
6. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the
appliance malfunctions or has been damaged in any manner. Contact the
BKmfg. Factory Service Department at (860) 738-2200 for examination,
repair or adjustment.)
7. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the appliance
manufacturer may cause injuries.
8. Do not use outdoors.
9. Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter or touch hot surfaces.
10. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner or in a heated oven.
11. It is recommended that this appliance not be moved when it contains hot
oil or other hot liquid.
12. ALLOW GREASE TRAY TO COOL COMPLETELY BEFORE REMOVING.
13. Always attach heat control to appliance first, then plug cord into wall outlet.
To disconnect, turn control to "OFF", then remove plug from wall outlet
14. Do not use appliance for other than intended use.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
This product is for household use only.
CAUTION: For safety's sake, when using non-stick cookware or electric appliance with
nonstick coatings, keep your pet birds out of the room. Birds have respiratory systems
that are sensitive to many kinds of fumes, including fumes from overheated nonstick
cookware.
NOTE: A short power supply cord (or cord set) has been provided to reduce the hazards
resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Longer cord sets or
extension cords may be used if care is properly exercised in their use. If a long cord set
or extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord
should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance. The longer cord should
be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter top or table top where it can be
pulled on by children or tripped over accidentally.
5. To remove for cleaning, pull spash guard back until it is flush with the heat control
socket, and lift up. Allow unit to cool before removing splash guard.
6. Push heat control into heat control socket, dial side up.

HOW TO USE
(Before using for the first time, become familiar with the griddle features, Figure B.
Wash griddle in dishwasher or in warm sudsy water, rinse and dry. Do not submerge
heat control or let the heat control come in contact with any liquid. )To "season" the
nonstick properties of the surface coating, rub the cooking surface of the griddle lightly
with cooking oil. Repeat periodically to maintain the nonstick properties.
1. Prepare food for cooking.
2. Plug unit into appropriate 3-prong wall socket. Turn heat control to desired temperature.
Preheat griddle for at least 5 minutes before placing food on it. Pilot light will turn
off when selected temperature is reached. During cooking, pilot light will go on and
off, indicating desired temperature is being maintained.
3. Because the griddle features a nonstick finish, food may be prepared with or without
shortening, according to taste.
4. Place food on griddle and cook according to temperature time table (page 4). H e a t
should be adjusted according to personal preference and particular food being cooked.
Temperatures and times in the table are approximate.
5. NOTE: You may notice at higher temperatures that the left side of griddle is a little
hotter than right side, due to the nature of how heat behaves in the curve of a heating
element. This is not a defect. Use the left side to cook items that normally take a little
longer to cook. Another option is to start placing the food on the griddle from right to
left, so the right food has a little longer to cook.
6. Turn heat control to OFF when cooking is completed. Unplug heat control from wall
outlet, then from appliance. Allow unit to cool completely before removing grease
tray to empty, or removing splash guard. Splash guard is made of stainless steel
for durability. During use, it get very hot. Extreme care should be used when handling,
emptying, etc. As a precaution, always use a hot mitt or potholder.
CARE AND CLEANING
Please read these instructions carefully. Refer to Figure A.
1. Place unit securely on table or counter.
2. (Model PCG-10) Position the splash guard above the cooking surface with the long
sides parallel, the splash guard arms facing forward, and the front edge of the right
arm lined up directly behind the heat control socket on right side of the unit.
3. Press splash guard down until it sits on the cooking surface.
4. Push the splash guard toward rear until the splash guard hooks are flush with the rear legs.
Before initial use and after each subsequent use, disassemble and wash griddle in
dishwasher or in warm sudsy water, rinse and dry. DO NOT IMMERSE HEAT
CONTROL IN WATER OR LET IT COME IN CONTACT WITH ANY LIQUID.
Periodically, "season" the cooking surface by rubbing with cooking oil to maintain the
nonstick properties.
Only nylon, plastic, wooden or rubber utensils should be used. Metal utensils may
not be used. Do not use a knife to cut the food on the cooking surfaces.
If there is any food residue remaining on the surface, it should be removed after each
use. To do so, scrub gently with a fine cleansing pad such as nylon mesh or other
ordinary cleansing pad. DO NOT USE STEEL WOOL OR ABRASIVE KITCHEN
CLEANERS.
