and the nonstick surface makes cleanup a snap. Invite friends and family to cook and serve
their own appetizers using the included color-coded spatulas. With the PIZZA PARTY &
APPETIZER OVEN, cooking has never been more fun!
Your PIZZA PARTY & APPETIZER OVEN comes fully assembled. Before first use, discard
all packing materials. Wipe down the outside of the unit and the Lower Cooking Plate
with a damp, non-abrasive cloth. Dry completely with a soft, non-abrasive cloth.
Wash the four included spatulas in warm, soapy water with a

"O" = ON / "_" = OFF
Before first use, wipe down all surfaces with a dry, non-abrasive cloth.
Find a dry, heat-resistant, level surface near an electrical outlet. Allow for a
minimum of 2 feet of space around all sides and the top of the oven.
DO NOT place the appliance on a plastic table or plastic table cloth.
Place the Lid over the Lower Cooking Plate and plug the unit into an electrical outlet.
Turn the red switch on the back of the unit to the ON position. Allow
the unit to preheat. Once preheated, the PIZZA PARTY & APPETIZER
OVEN will maintain a heat between 350 and 450 degrees F.
While the appliance is preheating, you may prepare your ingredients.
If making pizzas, use the included Dough Cutter to cut the pizza dough.
Assemble your pizzas right on top of the included Spatulas so they are
ready to place in the oven. To prevent dough from sticking, spray or apply
a light coat of vegetable oil to the top surface of the Spatula. (Refer to the
Helpful Tips section for further instructions on making mini pizzas.)
Use the Spatulas to carefully place food through the slots in the Lid
and onto the Lower Cooking Plate. Leave the food on the Spatula while
cooking. DO NOT cook food directly on the Lower Cooking Plate.
The Base of the appliance, Upper Heating Element and Lid get VERY HOT.
DO NOT touch hot surfaces.
The cooking time will range between 8-10 minutes for
pizza and 15-20 minutes for frozen appetizers.
10. Throughout the cooking process, you may use the Spatulas to check
whether food is cooked. Be sure to handle the Spatula by the black,
heat-resistant end. DO NOT touch the metal as it will be HOT.
NEVER remove the Lid during cooking. Be sure the unit is COMPLETELY COOLED
before removing the Lid.
11. Take the Spatula out of the unit and place on a heat-resistant
plate or surface. Slide the food off and allow to cool.
12. As soon as you are finished cooking, turn the unit OFF, unplug appliance and allow to cool.
13. Once the appliance is cool, follow the directions in the Cleaning and
Maintenance section to clean your PIZZA PARTY & APPETIZER OVEN.
NEVER leave the unit unattended while operating.
During first use, you may notice slight smoking or a slight odor; this is normal
with most new appliances. The smoking and odor is caused by the residues
burning off the nonstick Cooking Plates and the Heating Element. Allow
the appliance to preheat until smoke and odor no longer exists.
Making Pizzas
Follow these steps to create delicious, perfectly baked mini pizzas:
Gather your ingredients:
. Pizza dough
. Pizza sauce
. Cheese

on one side, sprinkle with flour, then turn it over and roll again. Repeat if
