This is a UL Listed appliance. The following important safeguards are recommended by most portable appliance manuffacturers.


To reduce the risk of personal injury or property damage when using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:


2.Do not touch hot surfaces! Always use hot pad or pot holder until unit cools.

3.To protect against electrical shock, do not immerse cord, plug or appliance in water or other liquid.

4.Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.

5.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.

6.Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the appliance malfunctions or has been damaged in any manner.

Contact the BroilKing Factory Service Department at (860) 738-2200for examination, repair or adjustment.

7.The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the appliance manufacturer may cause injuries.

8.Do not use outdoors.

9.Do not use appliance for other than intended use.

10.Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter or touch hot surfaces.

11.Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner or in a heated oven.

12.It is recommended that this appliance not be moved when it contains hot oil or other hot liquid.

13.Always plug cord into wall outlet before turning unit on with control knob. To disconnect, turn control to "OFF", then remove plug from wall outlet.

14.Do not clean with metal scouring pads. Pieces can break off the pad and touch electrical parts, creating a shock hazard.

15.A fire may occur if this appliance is covered or touching flammable material, including curtains, walls, etc., when in operation. To avoid excessive heat on wall(s) while cooking, always keep a space of at least 4” between your BroilKing range and your rear and side walls.


This product is for household use only.


l Electrical connection must be a proper outlet for the 3 pronged cord. Before connecting power, make sure the voltage and frequency correspond to the data plate on the unit.

l A short power supply cord (or cord set) has been provided to reduce the hazards resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Longer cord sets or extension cords may be used if care is properly exercised in their use. If a long cord set or extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance. The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter top or table top where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over accidentally.


lWhen performing any cleaning or maintenance to this unit, be sure to unplug from power outlet first, and allow to cool.

lCall BroilKing Customer Service at 860-738-2200with any questions or service needs.


1.Avoid letting water or food drop or boil over onto heating element. If liquids or other foreign material are allowed to drip down through the element pan and into the housing, the warranty is voided.

2.Signal light, on models so equipped, will come on when range is plugged into electric outlet.

3.This is a light duty range with a 5-1/2”diameter heating element. As with all countertop ranges as well as stovetops, the most efficient cooking / heating will be done when using pans that are closest in diameter to the heating element. The pot or pan used should not exceed the heating element diameter.

4.Be sure your Portable Buffet Range is resting level on countertop. Avoid using pans that are unstable and easily tipped.

5.To avoid excessive heat on wall(s) while cooking, always keep a space of at least 4” between your BroilKing range and your rear and side walls.

6.To avoid harm to your countertop, place range on a wood cutting board or hot pad when in use.


1.Always unplug buffet range from electric outlet and allow to cool before cleaning.

2.The element hookup configuration has been changed to improve the longevity of the elements. The new configuration requires a different procedure to remove the element, if necessary for cleaning. (You may also clean the elements without removing them by gripping an element at the point opposite where it goes into the holes in the drip pan and tilting it up. Do not force it up higher than it will go easily.)

3)To remove an element (Tools needed: pliers and slotted screwdriver):

l Be sure range is disconnected from electricity and the element is cool.l Locate the round push nut on the underside of the unit (directly below the element you want to remove.) You may need to apply pressure to the underside of the unit next to the push nut in order relieve the pressure that holds it in place in order to get a grip on it with pliers.

l While the pliers are gripping the push nut, use a screwdriver to loosen and remove the screw in the center of the drip pan.

l Pull the element up slightly. There are 2 pieces of rubber sleeve on the wires attached to the element. Gently slide the rubber sleeves back and remove the element by detaching the"quick-disconnect"terminal.
