Other Consumer Safety Information

This appliance is intended for household use only.WARNING Electrical Shock Hazard: This product is provided with either a polarized (one wide blade) or grounded (3-prong) plug to reduce the risk of electric shock. The plug fits only one way into a polarized or grounded outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the plug by modifying the plug in any way or by using an adapter. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, have an electrician replace the outlet. The length of the cord used on this appliance was selected to reduce the hazards of becoming tangled in or tripping over a longer cord. If a longer cord is necessary, an approved extension cord may be used. The electrical rating of the extension cord must be equal to or greater than the rating of the appliance. If the appliance is of the grounding type, the extension cord should be a grounding-type, 3-wire cord. Care must be taken to arrange the extension cord so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or accidentally tripped over. To avoid an electrical circuit overload, do not use another high-wattage appliance on the same circuit with this appliance. An extension cord should be connected to the appliance first before it is plugged into the outlet. Always use the grill on a flat surface to ensure grease and oils drain properly. Use caution when cleaning spilled hot grease. Use caution when cooking and around splattering grease. Always use a drip tray and make sure it is resting on the counter directly under the grill before use. Never move the grill when in use. Unplug the unit and let it cool before moving. Always use an oven mitt to protect your hand when opening the grill.CAUTION: Escaping steam may cause burns.

Grilling Guidelines

  • Grilling Times: Recipe cooking times are estimates. Cooking time will vary based on the temperature of the Grill, surrounding air, and the food itself. Watch food carefully while grilling and adjust cooking time as necessary.
  • Marinating Tips: Never marinate foods in metal containers for extended lengths of time (2 or more hours). Acids in foods can react with metal, causing an unpleasant taste. Instead, use glass, ceramic, or plastic bag containers for marinating.
  • Meat Safety Tip: To reduce the risk of spoiling, store meat in the refrigerator until you are ready to cook. Never thaw or marinate meat at room temperature, especially in warm climates.
  • Food Safety Tip: Never use leftover marinade as a finishing sauce on cooked foods. Leftover marinade must first be boiled for one to two minutes to kill any bacteria from raw food that was marinated.
  • Nonstick Grilling Tip: Without the use of oil, certain foods will stick slightly to nonstick surfaces. This is easily prevented. Before turning on your Grill, brush or spray Grill Plate lightly with oil or nonstick cooking spray. (Never add oil or spray to a heated plate—this is dangerous.)
  • Always read all safety information.

Grilling Tips

  • Cover Grill when preheating or grilling unless recipe suggests otherwise.
  • Please remember that your Grill Plate is coated with a nonstick surface and that plastic utensils should always be used.
  • If grilling vegetables, fish, or lean meat, spray the grilling surface with a cooking spray. If grilling meat with any amount of fat, or if food has been marinated, there is no need to treat Plate.
  • For best results, preheat Grill with Cover closed for 5 to 10 minutes before grilling.
  • Skewers are available in most large supermarkets. If using disposable, wooden-type skewers, soak skewers in water at least 10 minutes before threading on food.  his prevents skewer from scorching and makes a more attractive presentation.
  • If using a marinade with oil, place Grill near an exhaust hood. Oil or fat will produce some smoke.
  • Marinade or sauces may cook on Grill Plate; use a spatula to trim before slicing or cutting.
