including the following:
2. Verify that the voltage in your home corresponds to that of your appliance.
3. DO NOT touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.

controller or the appliance in water or other liquid.
5. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.
6. 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.
7. DO NOT operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the appliance
malfunctions or has been damaged in any manner. Return the appliance to the
nearest authorized service facility for examination, repair, or adjustment.
8. Do not use outdoors or for commercial purposes.
9. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the appliance manufacturer
may result in fire, electric shock or cause injury.
10.DO NOT let the cord hang over the edge of a table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
11.DO NOT place on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a heated oven.
12.DO NOT use the appliance for other than intended use.

This appliance has a polarized plug, (one blade is wider than
the other). As a safety feature to reduce the risk of electrical
shock, this plug is intended to fit in a polarized outlet only
one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the
plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do
not attempt to defeat this safety feature or modify the plug in any way. If the plug fits loosely
into the AC outlet or if the AC outlet feels warm do not use that outlet.
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risk resulting from becoming
entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Longer detachable power-supply cords
or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use.
If a long detachable power-supply cord or extension cord is used, the electrical
rating of the cord or extension cord must be at least as great as the electrical
rating of the appliance. The extension cord should be arranged so that it will not
drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or
tripped over unintentionally.
Thank you for purchasing the OSTER® Panini Maker &
Grill. Before you use this product for the first time, please take a
few moments to read these instructions and keep it for reference.
Pay particular attention to the Safety Instructions provided. Please
review the product service and warranty statements. Please do not

Congratulations on your purchase of a Titanium Infused
DuraCeramic™ appliance!
This appliance features a Titanium Infused DuraCeramic™ non-stick
natural ceramic coating which is 4X more durable than other
non-stick coatings. This means there’s no flaking or peeling off to
worry about. Furthermore, the ultra-durable ceramic coating cooks
faster than other non-stick coatings, saving time and energy. The
natural Titanium Infused DuraCeramic™ non-stick coating also offers
greater health and benefits as it’s free of PTFE and PFOA. 4X More
Durable – Titanium Infused DuraCeramic™!

Before using the appliance for the first time, remove and peel
off any promotional materials and packaging materials, and
check that the cooking plates are clean and free of dust.
• Clean the grill and the accessories (See “Cleaning and care”).
It is recommended to heat up the grill for about 10 minutes
without any food in order to eliminate any grease that may
have adhered during the manufacturing process.
• Ventilate the room during this period. When your Panini/Grill
is heated for the first time, it may emit slight smoke or odor.
This is normal with many heating appliances. This does not
affect the safety of your appliance.
NOTE: Ensure that the cord is kept well away from the cooking
surfaces at all times while in use or when the unit is hot.
• With the thermostat set to “Min”, plug the appliance in. The
red light will light up.
NOTE: Green pilot light may turn on and off during cooking. This
indicates that the thermostat is maintaining the proper cooking
temperature to grill to perfection.
• Position the fat collecting tray near the spout on the left side
of the appliance.
8/6/15 09:42
To Use as a Contact Grill
Use the Panini/Grill as a contact grill to cook burgers, boneless
pieces of meat and thin cuts of meat and vegetables.
• Set the Panini/Grill Temperature Control to your desired
setting. At first, try a setting near the “max” setting. You may
later adjust it lower or higher according to your preference.
• Prepare the burgers, boneless pieces of meat and thin cuts
of meat or other foods as directed and place it onto the
bottom cooking plate.
• Close the top cooking plate which has a floating hinge that
is designed to evenly press down on the food. The top plate
must be fully lowered to achieve Grill marks on the selected
• When the food is cooked use the handle to open the lid.
Remove the food with the help of a heat-resistant plastic or
wooden spatula.
NOTE: The ribs on the grill plates combined with the grease
spout at the corner of the plate allow the grease to drip from
the meat and drain off the plates.
Cooking with less fat
• If you want to cook with less
fat, you can get rid of the
excess cooking fat by using the
slanted feet at the back of the
appliance. Simply grasp the
foot extenders located on the 2
back legs of the unit and pivot
Figure 1
them out toward the back of
unit. This will provide the
contact grid with a slope that
will help channel the extra fat near the front edge of the
cooking plate, and towards the fat collecting tray. (See
Figure 1)
CKSTPM20-TECO_15EM1.indd 6-7
To Use as a Panini Press
Use the Panini/Grill as a Panini Press to grill sandwiches, breads
and quesadillas.
• Set the Panini/Grill Temperature Control to your desired
setting. At first, try a medium setting (temperature setting
midway between MIN and MAX). You may later adjust it
lower or higher according to your preference.
• Prepare the sandwiches and place them onto the bottom
cooking plate. Always place the sandwiches towards the
rear of the bottom cooking plate first.
• Close the top cooking plate, which has a floating hinge that
is designed to evenly press down on the sandwich. The top
plate must be fully lowered to cook sandwiches.
• Cook for about 3 to 6 minutes or until golden brown,
adjusting the time to suit your own individual taste.
• When the sandwich is cooked, use the handle to open the
lid. Remove the sandwich with the help of a heat-resistant
• To ensure proper and uniform grilling, when cooking more
than one food item in the grill, it is important for the
thickness of all food items to be consistent, so that the cover
will close evenly on the food.
To Use as an Open grill or a griddle
Use the Panini/Grill as an open grill to cook burgers, steak,
poultry (we do not recommend cooking chicken parts with
bones, since they would not cook evenly on an open grill), fish
and vegetables.
NOTE: First make sure the foot extenders are not in the
extended position.
• Put the grill on a clean flat surface where you intend to cook
in the flat position.
• With your left hand on the handle, use your right hand to
slide the grill/griddle release switch toward you, towards the
handle (See Figure 2). Push the handle back until the cover
rests flat on the counter. The unit will stay in this position until
8/6/15 09:42
you lift the handle and cover to
return it to the closed position.
• The upper plate/cover is now
level with lower plate/base. The
upper and lower plates line up to
create one large cooking surface.
• Cooking on the open grill is the
most versatile method of using
the Panini/Grill. In the open
Figure 2
position, you have double the
surface area for grilling.
• You can use 2 fat collecting trays
in this configuration, one per plate.
NOTE: When using in the open grill position it is important to
make sure that the upper and lower plates are both in the level
position before plugging in and turning on the unit. If the upper
plate does not sit completely flat, carefully hold the bottom
plate with one hand and push down on the outer portion of the
upper plate until the upper and lower plates line up to create
one large cooking surface (See Figure 3).
• Plug in the unit and set to the desired temperature. You are
now ready to start grilling.

NOTE: To protect the Titanium Infused DuraCeramic™ coating,
do not run cold water over cooking surface immediately after
• Clean the grill plates with a damp cloth, sponge or paper
• Do not use anything abrasive that can scratch or damage the
non-stick coating.

use mild soapy water. Rinse with hot water on a sponge or
towel and dry the plates carefully.
• To clean the housing, use a damp cloth, if necessary with some
mild soapy water.
• Make sure no water or other liquid penetrates into the appliance.
