BEFORE USING YOUR

QUESADILLA MAKER

FOR THE FIRST TIME

1.Carefully unpack the QUESADILLA MAKER.

2.Wipe all surfaces with a slightly damp, soft cloth. NEVER immerse unit in water.

3.Before preheating the QUESADILLA MAKER, the Cooking Plates may be brushed with a small amount of vegetable oil. This helps to protect thenon-sticksurface. You may wish to repeat this procedure periodically.

4.Set the appliance on a clean, dry and flat surface, where it can be easily plugged into a 120V AC electrical outlet.

5.To preheat the QUESADILLA MAKER: close the Lid and plug cord into electrical outlet. Both the Red Power/ON Indicator Light and Green Ready (Cook) Light will illuminate, and the unit will immediately begin heating. NEVER OPERATE THE APPLIANCE UNATTENDED. Allow the unit to preheat for approximately 5 minutes. The Green Ready (Cook) Light will turn off when the unit has reached cooking temperature.

6.Gently raise the QUESADILLA MAKER Lid using a pot holder/oven mitt. Always grasp Lid with a pot holder/oven mitt when raising and lowering Lid. As with any new appliance, you may notice smoke and a slight odor when unit is used for the first time while residues burn off the Cooking Plates and heating element. Allow theQUESADILLA MAKER to heat until smoke and odor dissipate.

NOTE: Some odor may still be detected during initial use; this is normal and should disappear after one or two uses.

HOW TO USE YOUR

QUESADILLA MAKER

1.Check to ensure that the Cooking Plates are clean and free from dust and food particles. If necessary, wipe with a damp cloth.

2.When using the QUESADILLA MAKER for the first time, lightly brush the Cooking Plates with vegetable oil.

3.Close the Lid.

YOUR QUESADILLA MAKER (CON’T.)

4.Plug appliance into a standard electrical outlet. Both the Red Power/ON Indicator and Green Ready (Cook) Light will come on; unit will immediately begin heating. NEVER OPERATE

APPLIANCE UNATTENDED.

5.Allow the appliance to preheat for approximately 5 minutes while preparing the fillings and quesadillas. The Green Ready (Cook) Light will turn off when unit has reached proper cooking temperature.

6.Slide the Drip Tray under the front of the unit. Raise the QUESADILLA MAKER Lid using a pot holder/oven mitt and place prepared quesadilla centered on the bottom Cooking Plate.

7.Carefully lower the Lid using a pot holder/oven mitt and latch shut. Depending on the amount of food contents, the Latch may not catch. DO NOT FORCE SHUT. The unit will still cook properly.

8.Steam may be released between the Cooking Plates. Caution should be taken to prevent hands from coming in contact with the steam.

9.Grilling time should be approximately 3 to 5 minutes. Exact grilling time will be a matter of taste and will depend on the type of filling. Do not over-grill,since filling may melt and pour out from between the tortillas.

10.The Green Ready (Cook) Light turns on and off as the unit cycles to maintain ideal cooking temperature; this prevents overheating.

11.After the quesadilla has finished cooking, gently raise the Lid using a pot holder/oven mitt and remove quesadilla with a plastic or wooden spatula. Do not use metal utensils as this may damage the non-stickcoating.

12.Keep the Lid closed to preserve heat until ready for the next quesadilla.

13.In the event filling leaks into the Built-InNon-StickDrip Reservoir or the Removable Drip Tray, carefully wipe out with folded paper towel before grilling the next quesadilla.

14.After use, unplug unit from the electrical outlet and allow to cool to room temperature before cleaning.

CAUTION: To avoid any sparks at the outlet while disconnecting plug, make sure the Green Ready (Cook) Light is OFF (not illuminated) before disconnecting the plug from the outlet.

15.When unit is cool, the Drip Tray may be removed and emptied. Be sure that the liquid is cooled.

HINTS FOR BEST RESULTS

1.NEVER OPERATE THE APPLIANCE UNATTENDED.

2.Only use 10-inchflour tortillas when making quesadillas with the Santa FeQUESADILLA MAKER. Tortillas should be fresh and pliable, not dried out or stiff.

3.Only use soft filling ingredients like shredded cheese, salsa, shredded or thinly sliced pieces of cooked meat, poultry or vegetables. Do not use with any foods that have bones or pits since they could damage the Cooking Plates.

4.Do not overfill the quesadilla, as the filling may leak out into the Built-InNon-StickDrip Reservoir.

5.Do not fill the tortilla with more than 1/4 cup shredded cheese and/or 1/2 cup liquid ingredients like salsa, as they may leak out when heated. Do not use processed cheese, because it turns into liquid when heated and will leak out into the Built-InNon-StickDrip Reservoir and Removable Drip Tray.

6.For best results, fillings should be spread as evenly as possible, up to 1/2-inchfrom the edge of the tortilla so that the edges can seal together.

7.Cooked quesadillas should only be slightly crisp with some light browning. Do not grill quesadillas longer than 5 minutes, as the filling may get too hot and start to leak. The average grilling time for a quesadilla on the preheated QUESADILLA MAKER is 3 to 4 minutes.

8.Do not force the Lid closed, as you may damage the hinge or latch mechanism. ALWAYS GENTLY RAISE OR LOWER THE LID

USING A POTHOLDER/OVEN MITT.

9.Always use QUESADILLA MAKER with the Removable Drip Tray in place.

10.In the event filling leaks into the Built-InNon-StickDrip Reservoir or the Removable Drip Tray, carefully wipe out with folded paper towel before grilling the next quesadilla.

11.Previously grilled quesadillas can be reheated on the QUESADILLA MAKER. Place on preheated appliance, matching up the triangle shape of the quesadilla with that of the Cooking Plates. Lower the Lid and reheat 1 to 2 minutes.
