SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance is for HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY. No user-serviceable parts inside. Power Unit
never needs lubrication. Do not attempt to service this product. A short power-supply cord is
provided to reduce the hazards resulting from entanglement or tripping over a longer cord.
AN EXTENSION CORD MAY BE USED WITH CARE; HOWEVER, THE MARKED
ELECTRICAL RATING SHOULD BE AT LEAST AS GREAT AS THE ELECTRICAL RATING
OF THE SKILLET. The extension cord should not be allowed to drape over the counter or
tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or unintentially tripped over.
KEEP WARM SETTING: The TEMPERATURE CONTROL PROBE has a “Keep Warm” range
setting of approximately 160° to 180° F. The indicator light will cycle on and off when this
setting is maintaining the desired temperature. NOTE: During initial use of this appliance, some
slight smoke and/or odor may be detected. This is normal with many heating appliances and
will not recur after a few uses. Only use with Temperature Control Probe number MPTC-3A.
POLARIZED PLUG
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other).
As a safety feature, this plug will 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.

HOW TO ASSEMBLE YOUR ELECTRIC SKILLET
Remove all parts from the packaging.
ASSEMBLING LID HANDLE
1. Find LID and LID HANDLE.
2. Holding LID HANDLE on the outside
top of LID, align holes in lID HANDLE
into holes located on the outside of
the LID. Handle should be centered
over glass in the LID.
3. Place the phillips head screws through
screw holes on the inside of the LID
(2 places).
4. Tighten screws with a screwdriver until
snug. Screws should be seated flush against
LID surface. The LID is now ready for use.
ASSEMBLING SIDE HANDLES/LEGS
1. Place pan upside down on table.
2. Find one SIDE HANDLE/LEG and mount on the pan side where the probe
connects to the pan.
3. Align screw holes in SIDE HANDLE/LEG over the screw posts on pan
(2 places per handle).
4. Insert screws (2 per handle) through holes in bottom of SIDE HANDLE/LEG
and align screws in holes in the pan.
5. Tighten screws with a screwdriver until snug. Screws should be seated flush
against handle.
6. Repeat steps 3 through 5 with the other SIDE HANDLE/LEG.
7. Once both handles are tightened securely, place skillet upright onto its legs.
Assembly is complete.
CAUTION: Do not operate skillet prior to assembly of SIDE HANDLES/LEGS and
LID HANDLE.
IMPORTANT
Check the SIDE HANDLES/LEGS of your skillet periodically for looseness. If
needed, re-tighten with a screwdriver. CAUTION: Overtightening can result in
stripping of screws or cracking of handles and base.

HOW TO USE YOUR ELECTRIC SKILLET
1. Turn TEMPERATURE CONTROL DIAL to “OFF”. Plug TEMPERATURE CONTROL
PROBE securely into receptacle on skillet, plug into standard 120v AC outlet
and turn TEMPERATURE CONTROL DIAL to desired setting.
2. The TEMPERATURE CONTROL INDICATOR LIGHT will come on when you set
or adjust the temperature. Once the desired temperature is reached, the indicator light will go out. (When adding food, the indicator light will come on
briefly as the overall cooking temperature is reduced.)
3. The cooking temperatures listed in this user manual are estimates. Adjust the
cooking temperature slightly up or down to achieve the results you prefer.
4. A STEAM VENT is located on the LID. To open STEAM VENT, carefully pull the
tab located on the top of LID. Reverse to close the STEAM VENT. The STEAM
VENT allows steam to escape while cooking with the LID in place. CAUTION:
Escaping steam is hot! Be careful when removing or lifting LID.
NOTE: If heating oil, always leave the lid off. If oil smokes, immediately turn
skillet “OFF” and allow to cool.
HOW TO USE THE LID REST FEATURE
• Hold lid at almost a 90-degree angle and insert LID REST LATCH (on LID)
into the cut-out opening in left SIDE HANDLE (opposite side from PROBE
GUARD). LID REST LATCH must be inserted between rib on handle and
handle itself.

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR SKILLET
CAUTION: Skillet is hot. Handle carefully.
1. Always allow the skillet to completely cool before cleaning.
2. Unplug cord from wall outlet, then remove TEMPERATURE CONTROL PROBE
from appliance. Wipe probe clean with a dry towel.
3. Immerse the skillet and lid in warm, soapy water and wash with a soft cloth.
Rinse well and dry. All parts, except the TEMPERATURE CONTROL PROBE,
are fully immersible and dishwasher-safe.
NOTE: Do Not use steel wool, abrasive cleaners, or metal scouring pads on
cooking surfaces as this will damage the non-stick coating.
WARNING: Do not immerse TEMPERATURE CONTROL PROBE in water or
other liquid.
HELPFUL HINTS
• Before using the skillet for the first time, lightly brush cooking surface with
vegetable oil. Heat, uncovered, to 300°F. Turn “OFF” and cool completely.
Wipe away excess oil.
• Use only nylon or heat-proof plastic cooking utensils. Metal utensils may
scratch the non-stick surface.
• This skillet is not designed to deep fry. To pan-fry, do not use more than 1 cup
of oil. Select a vegetable oil or peanut oil for frying, Butter and olive oil should
only be used to saute foods on a lower temperature setting.
