IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

To prevent personal injury or property damage, read and follow all instructions and warnings.

When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed including the following:

Read all instructions, including these important safeguards and the care and use instructions in this manual.

Do not use appliance for other than intended use. This device is not intended to heat oil or other liquids.

The use of accessory attachments not recommended by Focus Electrics may cause injuries.

Do not attempt to repair this appliance yourself.

Do not store any item on top of the appliance when in operation.

Do not leave unit unattended while plugged into outlet.

Do not operate when the appliance is not working properly or when it has been damaged in any manner. For service information see warranty page.

Use extreme caution when removing baking tray from unit when hot.

For household use only.

To prevent burns, personal injury or property damage, read and follow all instructions and warnings.

HEAT PRECAUTIONS

Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles and knobs where provided. Use hot pads or oven mitts when handling hot surfaces.

Do not move an appliance containing hot foods.

Be extremely cautious of steam as you lift the cover.

Allow unit to cool completely after use before storing.

Do not touch heating elements as serious burns may result.

Set baking tray on hot pad, trivet or other heat protective surface. Do not set hot baking tray directly on the counter, table or other surface.

Do not use this appliance on the stovetop, under the broiler, in the freezer, or in a heated oven.

2

To prevent electrical shock, personal injury or property damage, read and follow all instructions and warnings.

ELECTRICITY PRECAUTIONS

To protect against electric shock, do not immerse cord, plugs, or other electric parts in water or other liquids.

Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug.

Do not operate when the appliance is not working properly or when it has been damaged in any manner.

Do not use this appliance outdoors.

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

Do not plug cord into wall outlet unless all controls are set to OFF position.

Always turn control to OFF and unplug the appliance from outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow unit to cool completely before putting on or taking off parts and before cleaning.

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

Longer detachable power-supply cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use. While use of an extension cord is not recommended, if you must use one, the marked electrical rating of the detachable power-supply cord or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance. If the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be a grounding-type 3-wire cord. The cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter top or tabletop where it can be pulled by children or tripped over.

This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). 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 into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.

Do not use an outlet or extension cord if the plug fits loosely or if the outlet or extension cord feels hot.

Keep the cord away from hot parts of the appliance and hot surfaces during operation.

3

To prevent burns or other personal injuries to children, read and follow all instructions and warnings.

PRECAUTIONS FOR USE AROUND CHILDREN

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

Do not allow cord to hang over any edge where a child can reach it. Arrange cord to avoid pulling, tripping or entanglement.

To prevent fire, personal injury or property damage, read and follow all instructions and warnings.

FIRE PRECAUTIONS

Do not use around or near flammable materials. A fire may occur if the appliance is covered or touching flammable material, including curtains, draperies, walls, and the like when in operation.

Do not leave appliance unattended when in use.

Failure to clean baking tray may result in fire hazard.

Oversize foods or metal utensils must not be inserted in this appliance as they may create a fire or risk of electric shock.

Do not cover baking tray or line the appliance with aluminum foil.

Remove any plastic or cardboard wrapping from food before placing into appliance.

Unplug appliance and close cover if fire is observed.

USING YOUR ROTARY OVEN

1.Place Rotary Oven on a dry, level, heat-resistant surface, away from any edge.

2.Open cover and position baking tray into Rotary Oven aligning the recessed area in center of tray over the rotating drive in center of base. Do NOT operate Rotary Oven without baking tray properly positioned on the rotating drive.

3.Remove food to be cooked from box or wrapper and cardboard tray. Place food onto baking tray, centering and/or spacing evenly, for best results. Do not cover baking tray or line Rotary Oven with aluminum foil.

4.Close cover. With timer and heat selection control at OFF position, plug cord into a 120 volt AC electric outlet ONLY.

5.Select heat source by setting heat selection control at DUAL (upper and lower heat at the same time), UPPER, or LOWER.

6.Set timer for desired cook time. For suggested cooking times refer to cooking guide in this booklet rather than food-packaging recommendations, as most foods will cook faster in the Rotary Oven than in a conventional oven. Remember: When setting timer for less than 15 minutes, you must turn time past the 15 minute mark and then back to the number of minutes you wish to time. This must be done to activate timer and turn appliance on. The baking tray will rotate as the food is cooked. Note: If tray does not rotate, turn timer and heat selection control to “OFF”, unplug from electrical outlet and allow unit to cool completely. DO NOT BLOCK OR INSERT ANY OBJECT INTO VENTING HOLES AS YOU MAY CAUSE HARM TO YOURSELF OR THE APPLIANCE. Using care not to touch heating elements, check to be sure the baking tray is positioned correctly onto rotating drive in bottom of base, food is centered on baking tray and food does not extend beyond the baking tray area. The Rotary Oven does not require preheating.

7.Alert will sound; indicating selected cooking time has elapsed. Turn heat selection control to OFF, open cover and check food for doneness. If additional cooking time is needed, close cover, reset timer to desired time and heat selection control to desired heat setting. To prevent over browning, check cooking progress by looking through window in cover. If necessary the cover can be opened to check doneness. When the cover is opened the baking tray will stop rotating. However, as the heating elements will remain hot, foods will continue to cook, therefore, cover should not be left open for extended periods of time. The baking tray will begin rotating again when the cover is closed.

8.When food is done, turn timer to “OFF” if it is not already at “OFF.” Turn heat selection control to “OFF.” Unplug unit from electrical outlet. Open cover. Using a non-metal spatula, carefully remove food from baking tray and place onto a serving tray, cooling rack or cutting board. DO NOT CUT PIZZA OR OTHER FOODS ON BAKING TRAY AS SCRATCHING MAY OCCUR.

COOKING TIPS

1.There are some instances where over cooking a pizza will cause the rising crust to rise so high it touches the upper heating element, causing the crust and some of the toppings to burn. Constant monitoring when cooking is always needed, but is especially critical on self-rising crust pizzas.

2.Suggested cooking times and heat selections are to be used as a guide only. Experiment with cooking times and heat selections for maximum results and your preferred doneness.

3.Rotary Oven will not operate unless timer is set. Timer must be turned past the 15 minute mark for Rotary Oven to begin cooking and then back to desired amount of time if less than 15 minutes.

4.Some snack foods require turning for even and thorough heating.

1.Turn all control settings to “OFF.” Unplug unit from electrical outlet.

2.Baking tray is immersible and can be washed in warm, soapy water. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

3.Rotary Oven and cord are not immersible. Use a soft, damp cloth to clean interior and exterior of appliance.
