Always attach plug to appliance first, then plug cord into

the wall outlet. To disconnect, turn controls to “OFF”, then remove plug from wall outlet.

Do not use appliance for other than intended use.

Do not touch the steam vent on the skillet lid during or after use. It is extremely hot and may cause scalding.

Do not operate with damaged cord or plug. If the appliance is not working as it should, has been dropped, damaged, left outdoors, or dropped into water, return it to an authorized service center for proper service and replacement or repair.

Warning: Any other servicing should be preformed by an authorized service representative.

Do not clean with metal scouring pads as small particles may break off and create the risk of electric shock. Metal scouring pads may also damage the finish.

A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risk resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.

Do not handle plug or appliance with wet hands.

This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other), as a safety feature to reduce the risk of electric shock. This plug is intended to fit into a polarized

outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.
