• 	 When using an extension lead always make sure that the entire cable is unwound from the reel.
• 	 Use solely approved extension leads.
• 	 Certain parts of the appliance may get hot. Do not touch these parts to prevent burning yourself.
• 	 The appliance needs space to allow heat to escape, thereby preventing the risk of fire. Make sure that

	 The appliance must not be covered. Make sure the air vents are not covered or blocked.
• 	 Never use the appliance in the vicinity of flammable materials.

OPERATION	 - General information
The appliance is intended only
for domestic use,
not for professional use.
1. 	 Housing
2. 	 Temperature pilot light (red)

											Figure 1
OPERATION	 - Before use for the first time
1. 	 Remove the packaging.
2. 	 Clean all the accessories to remove any residues that may be left from the manufacturing process (see
	 “Cleaning and maintenance”).
3. 	 Put the plug into the wall socket and allow the grill to heat up for 10 minutes. This will remove any
	 packaging odor from the appliance.
	The appliance may emit a little smoke and a characteristic smell when you switch it on for the first time.
	 This is normal and will stop on its own. Make sure there is sufficient ventilation.
OPERATION	 - Preparations
1. 	 Prepare the food that you want to grill. Cut the food into slices/strips not thicker than 25 mm.
2. 	 Place the grill on a level, stable and heat-resistant surface.
3. 	 Place the drip tray at the front of the grill against the front feet.
4. 	 Close the lid.
5. 	 Put the plug in the wall socket. The red light will light and the appliance starts preheating the grill
	 plates. Once the grill plates have reached cooking temperature the red lamp will go out. This takes
	 approximately 2 minutes.
OPERATION	 - Grilling
6. 	 Open the lid.
7. 	 Lay the food that you want to grill on the lower grill plate.
8. 	 Close the lid. Do NOT press on the lid. This would flatten the food.
	To be able to handle food with different thicknesses, there is play in the cover so that it can easily
	 adjust to the thickness of the food.
9. 	 Grill the food until it is cooked. The cooking time required is different for each product.
10. Open the lid and remove the food from the grill plate. Use the plastic spatula provided or a heat-
	 resistant wooden spatula for this so that you do not damage the non-stick coating.
	Do not use a fork, knife or other sharp object!
11. 	Remove the plug from the wall socket once you have finished using the appliance.
Bon appetit!
