OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

GRIDDLES

Griddle tops are designed to have food cooked directly on the surface. Do not put pots or pans on the griddle surface as this will scratch or nick the surface and will result in improper cooking or

4

sticking of product. Never salt food over griddle since this will build up a gummy residue making it difficult to clean.

Avoid hitting the surface of the griddle with the edge of a spatula since this will cause nicks. The most frequently used temperatures are 149•C to 182•C (300•F to 360•F). After one cycle, the griddle plate will discolour. This is normal and will not affect cooking performance.

Check the grease container and drain frequently during heavy use to prevent overflow.

OPERATING THE GRIDDLE:

NOTE: Ensure the electrical supply to the appliance is turned "ON".

1.Switch “ON” main power switch on the control panel.

2.Switch “ON” desired section(s).

3.Set the thermostat to the desired temperature.

SHUTTING THE GRIDDLE DOWN:

1.Set the thermostat to the OFF position.

2.Switch “OFF” all sections.

3.Switch “OFF” main power switch on the control panel.

MAINTENANCE & CLEANING

CLEANING:

STAINLESS STEEL:

Stainless steel should be cleaned using a mild detergent, a soft cloth and hot water. If it is necessary to use a non-metallicscouring pad, always rub in the direction of the grain in the metal

5

to prevent scratching. Wash a small area at a time and rinse the washed area with a clean sponge dipped into a disinfectant and wipe dry with a soft clean cloth before it can dry.

Use only stainless steel, wood or plastic tools to scrape off heavy deposits of grease or oil. Do not use ordinary steel scrapers or knives, as particles of iron may become embedded and rust. NEVER USE STEEL WOOL.

GRIDDLES

PREPARING A NEW GRIDDLE:

1.Remove the protective coating on the surface using a mild detergent.

2.Thoroughly rinse the griddle with vinegar and a water solution (3/4-cupvinegar per quart of water) and dry.

SEASONING THE GRIDDLE:

1.Using a clean cloth, rub a thin and even layer of oil into the griddle surface. Oil should be an unsalted shortening or high temperature cooking oil.

2.Set the griddle thermostat to 66•C (150•F) and heat the griddle surface until the oil begins to caramelize (turn a golden brown colour).

3.Scrape off the caramelized oil with a standard spatula.

4.Repeat step 1, and set the griddle thermostat to 135•C (275•F).

5.Repeat steps 2 &3. The griddle is now seasoned and ready for use.

GRIDDLES -CONTINUED

CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS (AFTER EACH USE)

1.Using a traditional 64mm-76mm(2½”-3”)scraper or spatula scrape the griddle surface (to remove food particles and oil residues) towards the grease trough using even back to front strokes. Deposit debris into the chute.

2.Using a clean cloth, rub a thin and even layer of oil into the griddle surface.

6

3. Remove the grease drawer, empty and wash thoroughly with soap & water. Replace.

CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS (FOR HEAVY BUILD UP)

(After using cleaners & grease cutter, re-seasonthe griddle)

Apply to a warm griddle for best results.

1.Using a traditional 64mm-76mm(2½”-3”)scraper or spatula scrape the griddle surface (to remove food particles and oil residues) towards the grease trough using even back to front strokes. Deposit debris into the chute.

2.Apply griddle cleaner evenly over the griddle surface and let sit as directed. Follow the procedures on the label of the specific cleaning product.

3.Using a traditional scraper or spatula, slosh around the griddle cleaner to remove the build up.

4.Scrape the griddle surface towards the grease trough using even back to front strokes. Repeat step 2 if necessary.

5.Using a mild detergent, clean the surface and rinse thoroughly with a water and vinegar solution. Dry griddle.

6.Using a clean cloth rub a thin and even layer of oil into the griddle surface.

7.Re-season the griddle as detailed above. The griddle is now ready for use.

GRIDDLE DO’S & DON’TS

DO’S

1.Season the griddle. This will prevent foods from sticking and make it easier to keep the surface clean.

2.Keep the surface clean. Scraping the surface throughout production to clear foods and oils prevents build up and will make it easier to keep the surface clean.

3.Turn the temperature down during slow periods. Reducing the temperature or turning sections off during slow periods will conserve energy and prevent the plate from overheating.

DON’TS

1.Do not use salt to clean the griddle surface. Salt is corrosive and can cause pitting of the griddle.

2.Do not allow metal utensils (Spatula, scraper, etc.) to nick and/or dent the surface of the griddle. The edges of these utensils are sharp and will create divots that oil can collect in and caramelize which will cause sticking.

7

3.Do not use the griddle as a hot top. A large pan or pot will trap heat and can cause the griddle plate to warp.

4.Do not overheat the griddle to preheat faster. Preheating only takes 15-20minutes.

SERVICING

To ensure efficient and safe operation of the appliance it is recommended that servicing be carried out at regular intervals, the frequency of which will vary, depending on the installation conditions and usage. Usually once per year is adequate.

Servicing must be carried out by competent persons in accordance with the law.

SAFETY

It is essential that the instructions in this booklet be strictly followed for the safe and economical operation of the equipment. If it is known or suspected that a fault exists on the appliance then it must not be used until a competent person has rectified the fault.
