COMPONENTS FPG310 Grill Plate Spatula Ready Indicator Cooking Indicator Cool touch handle and housing Non-Dividing Non stick cooking plates Non-slip feet OPERATING YOUR SANDWICH MAKER 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Clean the surface of the non-stick cooking plates with a damp cloth, then dry. Place the Sandwich Maker on a flat, dry and level surface with the lid closed. Plug the Sandwich Maker into a suitable power outlet, corresponding with the rating label, 230-240V~. NOTE: When using your Sandwich Maker for the first time, you may notice the cooking plates smoke slightly. This is normal and will quickly disappear. The red power “On” light will illuminate to indicate the Sandwich Maker is heating up. Prepare your sandwich while the appliance is heating up, buttering up to four pieces of bread and preparing your desired filling. When the green “Ready” light illuminates, your sandwich maker is ready to use. Place two pieces of buttered bread onto the lower cooking plates, buttered side down. Place filling on top of the bread. Add the top slice/s of bread and carefully close the Sandwich Maker lid, clipping the handles together with the locking latch. Note: The green light will turn on and off, while cooking to indicate the temperature is being maintained. Toasting will take approximately 3 minutes depending on individual preference and the type of bread and/or filling being used. When the sandwich is cooked, remove using a wooden or heat resistant plastic spatula. Never use metal utensils as these can damage the non-stick surface. CAUTION: STEAM MAY BE EJECTED FROM BETWEEN THE PLATES DURING THE COOKING PROCESS. TAKE CARE NOT TO COME INTO CONTACT WITH THE STEAM AS IT MAY CAUSE BURNS. ENSURE THE CORD HAS BEEN FULLY UNWOUND BEFORE EVERY USE. OPERATING YOUR SANDWICH MAKER CONT.. 7. 8. 9. To maintain heat, keep the sandwich maker lid closed until you are ready to cook the next sandwich. Prepare additional sandwiches if required while others are cooking. Unplug immediately after use and allow to cool before cleaning. CAUTION: ENSURE THE CORD HAS BEEN FULLY UNWOUND BEFORE EVERY USE. FOR BEST RESULTS 1. 2. 3. 4. Always pre-heat the Sandwich Maker before use. For best results butter the outside of the bread before cooking. Flavored butters may also be used. The outside of the bread may be left unbuttered if required, however we recommend seasoning the cooking plates occasionally to avoid sticking. Seasoning will make your Sandwich Maker easier to clean. To season the cooking plates, pre-heat the Sandwich Maker then gently rub vegetable oil onto the plates, remove with absorbent paper. Do not use spray on non-stick coatings in your Sandwich Maker as they may damage the cooking surface. Be careful when biting into sandwiches containing sugar, cheese, tomatoes or jam as fillings may become very hot and burn. CARE AND CLEANING Clean your Sandwich Maker after every use to prevent a build-up of baked-on foods. Prior to cleaning, ensure the Sandwich Maker has been disconnected from the power supply and the plug has been removed from the outlet. Once the Sandwich Maker has cooled, wipe the cooking plates with a soft cloth. If stubborn baked-on food is present, brush the plates with a small amount of melted Butter or oil, allow to stand for approximately 5 minutes then wipe again with a damp cloth.
