TO USE
1. Make sure the power supply you are using is adequate.
2. Fill the well with 4 quarts of water. (Do not fill with more than 4 quarts. If the water level is too high, water may
overflow when the food pan is inserted. Overflow will enter the electrical compartment and cause a short circuit
or electrical shock).
3. Plug the cord into a three hole grounded electrical outlet of appropriate voltage.
4. Preheat the water in the well by covering the well with an empty food container or cover. Set the heat control to
the maximum heat setting. Preheat for 30 minutes.
5. Place stainless steel food pan containing food into the food warmer.
6. Reduce the setting of the knob by ¼ and monitor food temperatures closely for food safety. The United States
Public Health Service recommends that food be held at a minimum of 140˚ F (and/or in compliance with local
health codes) to prevent bacteria growth. Maintain water level at 4 quarts. Periodically, (approximately every 2
hours) remove food pan and check the water level. Add hot water if needed and adjust up or down as required
by the food type.
HOT WATER AND STEAM IN THE WELL CAN SEVERELY BURN SKIN. USE PROTECTIVE GLOVES, MITTS OR POTHOLDERS WHEN
REMOVING FOOD CONTAINERS OR COVERS. HOT FOOD CAN ALSO CAUSE BURNS. HANDLE FOOD CAREFULLY.
CLEANING - NOTE: To maintain cleanliness and increase service life, the food warmer should be cleaned daily. Do not
immerse the food warmer in water or any other liquid, if liquid enters the electrical compartment it may cause a short
circuit or electrical shock.
1. Before cleaning or attempting to move food warmer, unplug and let the unit cool completely.
2. Carefully empty the water from the well.
3. Wipe the entire unit with a clean soft cloth until it is completely dry.
4. To avoid damage to the well, do not use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads.
5. If soap or chemical cleaners are used, be sure they are completely rinsed away with clean water immediately
after cleaning. Chemical residue could damage or corrode the surfaces of the unit.
There are no serviceable parts within this appliance. To avoid serious injury or damage, never attempt to repair the food warmer
or replace a damaged cord yourself. Contact a professional repair service.
