- The water in the drip tray will take away smoke and nasty smells, as it prevents food particles
from getting burnt.
- To make cleaning easier, you can line the drip tray with aluminium foil before filling it with
- When lining the drip tray, make sure the foil does not hang over the sides of the tray, as this will
prevent proper air circulation.

The grilling plate only fits in the base in one way.
4 Lightly grease the grilling plate with butter or oil.
5 Insert the thermostat unit into the thermostat unit socket in the side of the appliance (fig. 5).

Grilling times
In the table at the end of these instructions for use you will find some types of food you can cook
on this table grill. The table shows which temperature to select and how long the food should be
grilled. The time required to preheat the appliance has not been included in the grilling times
indicated in the table. The grilling time and temperature depend on the type of food that is being
prepared (e.g. meat), its thickness and its temperature and, of course, also on your own taste. You
can also refer to the indications on the base of the table grill.
Never use abrasive cleaning agents and materials, as this will damage the non-stick coating of the
Do not immerse the mains cord with thermostat unit in water or any other liquid.
1 Set the temperature control to the 'off' position.

5 Remove the drip tray by lifting it out of the base (fig. 8).
6 Clean the grilling plate, drip tray and base with a soft cloth or sponge in hot water with
some washing-up liquid or in the dishwasher.
Food residues or grease can be removed by soaking the grilling plate in hot water with some
washing-up liquid for five minutes or by drizzling some lemon juice onto the grilling plate. This will
loosen any caked food or grease.
7 Dry the grilling plate, drip tray and base, and reassemble them.
The inside of the thermostat unit socket must be completely dry before you reinsert the
thermostat unit into it. To dry the socket, wipe the inside with a dry cloth. If necessary, shake
out excess water first.
8 Clean the outside of the thermostat unit with a damp cloth.
◗ The grilling plate is ideal for preparing meat, poultry, fish and vegetables. Fat and juice drip
through the grill into the drip tray, which ensures almost smoke-free grilling and healthy,
low-fat food (fig. 9).
◗ The frying section (HD4427 only) is ideal for preparing fish, eggs, ham, mushrooms,
tomatoes, onions, etc. It is also very handy for keeping food hot (fig. 10).
◗ You can also use the table grill as a thermostatically controlled hotplate that automatically
keeps your dishes at the required temperature. Cover the grilling plate with aluminium foil
with the shiny side facing upwards and then set the temperature control to position 2 or 3.
◗ Tender pieces of meat are best suited for grilling.
◗ Pieces of meat such as steaks or spare rib chops become more tender if marinated
◗ The grilled food should not be turned too frequently. When the items are brown on both
sides, they should be grilled at a lower temperature to ensure they do not dry out and are
cooked more evenly.
◗ If you want to defrost frozen food, wrap the frozen food in aluminium foil and set the
temperature control to position 3 or 4. Turn the food from time to time. The defrosting
time depends on the weight of the food.
◗ When you are preparing satay, chicken, pork or veal, first sear the meat at a high
temperature (position 5). If necessary, you can then set the temperature control one
position lower and grill the food until it is done.
◗ When making satay or kebab, soak bamboo or wooden skewers in water to prevent them
from getting scorched during grilling. Do not use metal skewers.
◗ Sausages tend to burst when they are being grilled. To prevent this, punch a few holes in
them with a fork.
◗ Fresh meat gives better grilling results than frozen or defrosted meat. Do not put salt on the
meat until after you have grilled it. This will help to keep the meat juicy. For the best result,
make sure the pieces of meat you are going to prepare are not too thick (approx. 1.5 cm).
This table grill is not suitable for grilling breadcrumbed food.
◗ Do not throw the appliance away with the normal household waste at the end of its life, but
hand it in at an official collection point for recycling. By doing this you will help to preserve
the environment (fig. 11).
