To reduce the risk of personal injury or property damage when using electrical appliances,
basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:
1. Read all instructions.
2. Be sure that handles are assembled and fastened properly before using this appliance.
3. Before using this appliance, move it two to four inches away from the wall or any object on
the counter top. Remove any object that may have been placed on top of the appliance.
Do not use on surfaces where heat may cause a problem.
4. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles.
5. To protect against electrical shock, do not immerse control, cord, or plug in water or other
6. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.
7. Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to cool before putting on or
taking off parts, and before cleaning the appliance.
8. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or in the event the appliance
malfunctions or has been damaged in any manner. Return appliance to the nearest autho-
rized service facility for examination, repair or adjustment.
9. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the appliance manufacturer may
cause injuries.
10. Do not use outdoors.
11. Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter or touch hot surfaces.
12. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner or in a heated oven.
13. It is recommended that this appliance not be moved when it contains hot oil or other hot
liquid. If it must be moved when it contains hot oil or other hot liquid, use extreme caution.
14. Always attach heat control to appliance first, then plug cord into wall outlet. To disconnect,
turn control to MIN then remove plug from wall outlet.
15. Do not use appliance for other than intended use.
16. Keep loose clothing, curtains, furniture and flammable material etc. away from the wall
outlet where the unit is plugged in.
17. If the plug gets hot, please call a qualified electrician.
18. Do not clean with metal scouring pads. Pieces can break off the pad and touch electrical
parts, creating a risk of electric shock.
19. A fire may occur if this appliance is covered or touching flammable material, including
curtains, draperies, walls, etc., when in operation.
20. Caution: Never leave the indoor appliance unattended when grilling.
21. Do not place any of the following materials on the indoor appliance: paper, cardboard,
plastic and the like.
For Household use only

A short power cord is provided to reduce the risk resulting from entanglement or tripping over
a longer cord. Longer detachable power supply cords are available and may be used if care
is exercised in their use. If a longer detachable power cord or extension cord is used the
marked electrical rating of the extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating
of the appliance, and the longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the
countertop or table top where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally.
If your product is equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug (a plug having one
blade wider than the other), this plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety
feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug
should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the
safety purpose of the polarized plug.
Before using the Skillet for the first time
Remove all labels and wash the pot and glass lid in hot soapy water, rinse thoroughly and dry.
• Before using, check that the appliance has not been damaged during transport.
• Install the appliance on a dry flat surface, and out of the reach of children, as some parts of
the appliance reach very high temperatures during operation.
• Always place the glass lid in position during use unless the recipe advises differently.
• Before inserting the plug in the outlet, check that:
- the power of the outlet corresponds to the value indicated on the rating plate applied to the
accessory plug.
- the outlet has a minimum rating of 15 A.
- the outlet is suitable for the plug, otherwise replace it.
- the outlet is suitably grounded.
- the manufacturer declines all liability if this instruction is not respected.
Before using for the first time, wash skillet and cover in dishwasher or in warm, sudsy water,
rinse, and dry. Do not immerse the connector or let the thermostat come into contact with any
liquid. “Season” the nonstick cooking surface by rubbing lightly with cooking oil. Remove
excess oil with paper towel.
1. Place skillet on a dry, level, heat resistant surface.
2. Insert the connector probe into the skillet so the two electrical pins on the skillet are fully
inserted into the connector. Connect cord to outlet.
3. Turn the thermostat to desired temperature (see page 7 for cooking temperature). Remove
cover and preheat skillet. Pilot light goes off when selected temperature is reached (this
takes approximately 5 to 10 minutes).
4. Prepare food for cooking. Because the skillet features a nonstick finish, food may be pre-
pared with little or no oil.
5. Place food in skillet and cook according to temperature-timetable. Heat should be adjusted
according to personal preference and particular food being cooked. During cooking, pilot
light will go on and off indicating desired temperature is being maintained.
6. Turn the thermostat to “MIN” when cooking is completed. Unplug the connector from wall
outlet then from appliance.

During the cooking process you can adjust the steam ventilation as desired, according
to the recipe's requirements.
To prepare the food without steam, put the steam vent knob (A) on the “OPEN” position.
If during the cooking process you need more steam in the pot, put the steam vent knob on the
“CLOSE” position.
Before initial use and after each subsequent use, wash skillet and cover in dishwasher or in
warm sudsy water, rinse, and dry. Do not immerse connector in water or let it come in contact
with any liquid.
For best results use nylon, plastic, wooden, or rubber utensils. Do not use metal utensils as they
may scratch the nonstick surface.
Do not cut foods on the cooking surface.
After each use, clean the nonstick surface with a non-metal cleaning pad, such as Scotch-Brite*
Multi-Purpose Scrub Sponge* or Scotch-Brite* Dobie Cleaning Pad**. Firm pressure can be
applied, if necessary. Do not use steel wool or abrasive kitchen cleaners. Soaking the skillet to
loosen food residue is not necessary. If, however, soaking the skillet is desired, do not soak for
more than two hours. Soaking for more than two hours may damage the nonstick finish.
In time, the nonstick finish may darken over the heating element. To remove this discoloration,
use a commercial cleaner designed for cleaning surfaces, such as dip-it destainer. These clea-
ners are available at most grocery and hardware stores. For best results, follow the manufactu-
rer’s instructions, being careful that any cleaning solution coming in contact with the exterior of
the appliance is wiped off.
After treating the skillet with a commercial cleaner, it is recommended that the cooking surface
be wiped lightly with a cooking oil before using. The outside finish of the skillet is easy to keep
attractive and looking new. Simply wipe away spills and drips as they occur. If food should
happen to burn on, it can be removed with warm, sudsy water and a cleaning pad. Rinse and
wipe dry.
IMPORTANT: To ensure continued accuracy of the thermostat, avoid rough handling in use and

Also, consequential and incidental damage resulting from the use of this product or arising
