OPERATING

OPERATING YOUR BREVILLE Panini Press

Before first use

Remove any promotional materials and packaging materials before use. Check that the cooking plates are clean and free of dust. If necessary, wipe with a soft, damp cloth.

When using the panini press for the first time you may notice a fine smoke haze. This is caused by the heating of some of the components. There is no need for concern.

To use as a panini press

1.Insert the power plug into a 110/120 volt power outlet. The Red power ‘On’ light will illuminate.

2.Allow the panini press to pre-heatwith the top cooking plate in the closed position until the green ‘READY’ light illuminates.

3.During this time, prepare the panini. When the green 'Ready' light illuminates, place the panini onto the bottom cooking plate. Always place panini towards the rear of the bottom cooking plate.

4.Close the top cooking plate. The top cooking plate has a floating hinge that is designed to evenly press down on the panini (see Fig. 1).

5.Toasting should take approximately 5-8minutes. Exact toasting time will be a matter of taste. It will also depend on the type of bread and type of filling used.

6.When the panini is cooked, use the handle to open the panini press and raise the top cooking plate. Remove the panini with the help of a plastic or wooden spatula. Never use metal tongs or a knife as these can cause damage to the nonstick coating.

NOTE:

Always allow the panini press to pre-heatuntil the green ‘READY’ light illuminates.

NOTE:

The locking storage clip should not be used to clamp down the top cooking plate when the paninis are in the panini press. The weight of the top cooking plate will gradually

press down the sandwich during the cooking process.

NOTE:

When using the panini press for the first time you may notice a fine smoke haze. This is caused by the

heating of some of the components. There is no need for concern.

The temperature of accessible surfaces may be high when the appliance is operating.

FULLY UNWIND THE CORD FROM THE CORD STORAGE FACILITY BEFORE USE.

OPERATING YOUR BREVILLE Panini Press

Toasting Open Sandwich 'Melts'

Your panini press has an Adjustable Height Control feature which allows you to fix the top plate to a range of positions above the bottom plate. This allows your panini press to be used as an open toaster ideal for toasting open sandwich style ‘melts’.

It can also be used for toasting sandwiches and snacks where you don’t need to apply the weight of the top plate.

Open sandwich melts

1.Allow the panini press to pre-heatuntil the green ‘READY’ light illuminates.

2.Place sandwich to be melted on bottom plate.

3.Move the Adjustable Height Control clip on the right hand side of the panini press to the desired height (see Fig. 2).

4.Slowly lower the top plate until it rests on the Adjustable Height Control clip.

5.The top plate will radiate the desired heat to melt ingredients such as cheese.

6.Toasting ‘melts’ should take approximately 3-4minutes. However exact toasting time will be a matter of taste. It will also depend on the height of the top plate.

NOTE:

The panini press should be used to heat sandwich fillings and deli

meats or reheat pre-cookedfillings. Always ensure uncooked meats are cooked before using them

as sandwich fillings in toasted sandwiches.

Adjustable Height Control

Toasts or melts any bread thickness in minutes.

NOTE:

The Adjustable Height Control can be moved to accommodate thick or thin melts by sliding the clip forwards or backwards along the arm.

OPERATING YOUR BREVILLE Panini Press

Hints for best results

Bread

Most types of bread can be used; white, wholemeal, kibbled wheat, wholegrain, raisin loaf and so on. The panini press is ideal for toasting focaccia, Turkish bread, baguette as well as bread rolls. Raisin bread, brioche or other sweet breads which contain a high sugar content will tend to brown quicker.

Filings

Try to use canned or pre-cookedfruit as fresh fruit may give off excessive juices when heated. Be careful when biting into paninis containing fillings such as cheese and tomato or jam as they retain heat and can burn if eaten too quickly.

Versatility

The flat bottom plate design makes the panini press ideal for toasting plain bread and Turkish bread without any fillings or spreads. The flat bottom plate is also perfect for cooking breakfast items such as eggs and pancakes.

Fat free snacks

Due to the non-stickflat plate design, it is not necessary to use any butter or

margarine on the outside of your toasted snacks.

NOTE:

When using the flat bottom plate to cook breakfast items, move the Adjustable Height Control clip so that the top plate floats above the food. The top plate will radiate heat onto the food, shortening the cooking time.

CARE & CLEANING YOUR BREVILLE Panini Press

Before cleaning, remove the plug from the power outlet. Allow your panini press to cool before cleaning.

The appliance is easier to clean when slightly warm.

Always clean your panini press after each use to prevent a build up of baked-onfoods.

Wipe cooking plates with a soft cloth. If cooked on food is not removed by this method, reheat the unit for 1-2minutes, then brush with a little oil or melted butter. Allow to stand for five minutes then wipe with a damp cloth.

NOTE:

The cooking plates are coated with a non-sticksurface, do not use abrasives.

Storage

To store your panini press:

1.Unplug from the power outlet.

2.Allow the panini press to fully cool.

3.Slide the Adjustable Height Control clip towards the front handle to the LOCK position so that the top and bottom cooking plates are locked together (See Fig 3).

4.Wrap the cord in the cord storage area below the appliance (See Fig 4).

5.The panini press can be stored upright or flat on a dry, level surface.

NOTE:

The storage clip should not be used to clamp down the top plate when paninis are in the panini press.
