Broil King GRD550 User Manual
To remove this discoloration, use a commercial cleaner designed for cleaning nonstick surfaces. These cleaners are available at most grocery and hardware stores. For best results, follow the manufacturer’s instructions, being careful that any cleaning solution coming in contact with the exterior of the appliance is wiped off. After treating the griddle 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 griddle 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 is easily removed with warm, sudsy water and a dish cloth. Any food residue remaining can be whisked away with a gentle stroke of a nylon mesh pad. Rinse and wipe dry.
IMPORTANT: To insure continued accuracy of the heat control, avoid rough handling in use and storage. Any maintenance required for this product other than normal household care and cleaning, should be performed by our Factory.

This product is for household use only.
CAUTION: For safety's sake, when using
NOTE: 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.
Please read these instructions carefully. Refer to Figure A.
1.Place unit upside down on edge of table or counter.
2.Remove the screws from mounting projections on the appliance body.
3.Position the handles, lining up holes in the handles with mounting projections on the griddle.
4.Replace the screws and fasten securely. When properly assembled, the griddle should sit level without legs rocking.
HOW TO USE
Before using for the first time, become familiar with the griddle features, Figure B. Wash griddle in dishwasher or in warm sudsy water, rinse and dry. Do not submerge heat control or let the heat control come in contact with any liquid. To "season" the nonstick properties of the surface coating, rub the cooking surface of the griddle lightly with cooking oil. Repeat periodically to maintain the nonstick properties.
1.Prepare food for cooking.
2.Turn heat control to desired temperature. Preheat griddle. Pilot light goes off when selected temperature is reached. During cooking, pilot light will go on and off, indicating desired temperature is being maintained.
3.Because the griddle features a nonstick finish, food may be prepared with or without shortening, according to taste.
4.Place food on griddle and cook according to temperature time table (page 4). Heat should be adjusted according to personal preference and particular food being cooked.
5.Turn heat control to OFF when cooking is completed. Unplug heat control from wall outlet, then from appliance. Allow unit to cool before removing grease tray to empty.
CARE AND CLEANING
Before initial use and after each subsequent use, wash griddle in dishwasher or in warm sudsy water, rinse and dry. DO NOT IMMERSE HEAT CONTROL IN WATER OR LET IT COME IN CONTACT WITH ANY LIQUID. Periodically, "season" the cooking surface by rubbing with cooking oil to maintain the nonstick properties.
For best results use nylon, plastic, wooden or rubber utensils. Metal utensils may be used with care but should not be used to cut food on the cooking surfaces.
If there is any food residue remaining on the surface, it should be removed after each use. To do so, scrub gently with a fine cleansing pad such as nylon mesh or other ordinary cleansing pad. DO NOT USE STEEL WOOL OR ABRASIVE KITCHEN CLEANERS.
In time, the nonstick finish may darken over the healing element. This is normal and will not seriously alter the release properties of the surface.
