SPECIAL CORD SET
INSTRUCTIONS
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce
the risks resulting from becoming entangled in or
tripping over a longer cord. Extension cords may
be used if care is exercised in their use.
If an extension cord is used, the marked electrical
rating of the extension cord should be at least
as great as the electrical rating of the appliance,
and the longer cord should be arranged so that
it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop
where it can be pulled on by children or animals,
or tripped over. The extension cord should be for
a polarized plug and outlet.
This appliance is for 120 volts only and should
not be used with a converter.

bottom handle and pull together until shut.
NOTE: Please note that top and bottom grid
covers may separate slightly during use. This
is normal. Should this occur, do not close
handles to rotate until unit beeps, indicating that
the baking cycle is completed. To reduce grid
separation and overflow during cooking, you may
want to reduce the quantity of batter.
6.After the waffle maker is preheated and
ready for baking, open the waffle maker
lid. Pour waffle batter evenly on the waffle
grid. Use a heatproof spatula to spread
the batter evenly over the plate.
7.Close top cover and rotate the waffle
maker plates 180º.
8.When the waffle is baked to the desired
doneness, the unit will beep three times
and the indicator light will illuminate.
9.Rotate waffle grid with the lit indicator

heatproof spatula.
10. Repeat for additional waffles.
Remove all packaging and any promotional labels
or stickers from your waffle maker. Be sure that
all parts (listed in Part and Features) of your
new waffle maker have been included before
discarding any packaging materials. You may
want to keep the box and packing materials for
use at a later date.
Before using your Cuisinart® Double Belgian
Waffle Maker for the first time, remove any
dust from shipping by wiping the plates with
a damp cloth.
NOTE: The first time you use your Cuisinart®
Double Belgian Waffle Maker it may have a slight
odor and may smoke a bit. This is normal and
common to heating appliances.
NOTE: This Cuisinart® Double Belgian Waffle
Maker has been treated with a special nonstick
coating. Before each use, we suggest you

with cooking spray or flavorless vegetable oil
to thoroughly coat the grids. Wipe with a paper
towel or pastry brush.

TIPS AND HINTS
6.If making additional waffles, pour waffle
batter evenly on the waffle plate. Use a
heatproof spatula to spread the batter
evenly over the plate. Close top cover and
rotate the waffle maker plates 180°.
7.When the second waffle is baked to the
preferred setting, the unit will beep three
times and a light located on the waffle grid
cover will illuminate.
8.Rotate the waffle maker with the lit
indicator to the top position. Raise the top
cover and remove the baked waffle.
9.If making additional waffles, repeat the
instructions above.
10.When you are finished baking, turn unit
switch to the OFF position, unplug the
unit and allow the waffle maker to cool
before handling.
• Setting #1 will produce the lightest color
waffles. Setting #6 will produce the darkest
color waffles. Experiment to determine your
preferred setting.
• Packaged Belgian waffle mixes found in most
supermarkets may be used with this unit.
• For best results, we recommend filling the
supplied measuring cup to the top so it will fill
the waffle grids.
• For evenly filled waffles, pour the batter into
the center of the lower grid and spread out
evenly to the edges. The entire waffle grid
should be filled.
• We recommend turning the browning control
dial to setting #4 when using commercial
pancake/waffle mixes and for the included
recipes. If you prefer crisper, darker Belgian
waffles, set the browning control higher. If you
prefer lighter waffles, turn the browning control
dial down.
CLEANING, CARE AND
MAINTENANCE
Once you have finished baking, turn the unit to
the OFF position; remove plug from electrical
outlet. Leave top lid open and allow grids to cool
down completely before cleaning.
• If waffles tend to stick to waffle grids, add
slightly more oil or butter to the batter.
• Belgian waffles taste best when made to order,
but baked Belgian waffles may be kept warm
in a 200˚F oven. Place them in a baking pan
or wrap them in foil while in the oven. Waffles
wrapped in foil may lose their crispness.
Brush crumbs from grooves, and absorb any
excess cooking oil by wiping with a dry cloth or
paper towel. You may clean the grids by wiping
with a damp cloth to prevent staining and sticking
from batter or oil buildup. Never take your
waffle maker apart for cleaning.
• Baked waffles may be frozen. Allow them to
cool completely, and then place them in a
plastic food storage bag. Use waxed paper
to keep waffles separated. Reheat in an oven,
toaster or toaster oven when ready to serve.
Be certain that grids have cooled completely
before cleaning. If batter adheres to plates,
simply pour a little cooking oil onto the baked
batter and let stand approximately five minutes,
allowing batter to soften for easy removal.
To clean exterior, wipe with a soft, dry cloth.
Never use an abrasive cleanser or harsh pad.
NEVER IMMERSE CORD, PLUG OR UNIT IN
WATER OR OTHER LIQUIDS.
Any other servicing should be provided by an
Authorized Service Representative.
