Appliance Specifications

General Operating Instructions

Before First Use
  1. Read all material, warning stickers, and labels.
  2. Remove all packing materials.
  3. Wipe the outside of the appliance with a warm, moist cloth and mild detergent.
  4. Clean the inside of the appliance with warm water, a mild detergent, and a nonabrasive cloth or sponge. Never submerge the appliance in water or wash in a dishwasher.
  5. Rinse the appliance with a clean, damp cloth. Use a clean, dry cloth to dry the appliance interior. Do not leave standing water in the appliance.
  6. Let the appliance run for a few minutes to burn off the manufacturer’s protective coating of oil (a slight odor or smoking might occur during this process; this is normal):
    1. Locate the appliance on a dry, level, stable, heat-resistant surface.
    2. Ensure the appliance is closed, latched, and rotated onto its side so that the dual red/green Indicator Lights are facing straight upward.
    3. Plug the power cord into a 120V dedicated outlet. The red Indicator Light should light up to indicate the appliance is preheating.
    4. Wait for the appliance to finish preheating, indicated by the adjacent green Indicator Light lighting up.
    5. Let the appliance run for 3 minutes. Then, unplug the appliance.
    6. Wipe the appliance off with a damp cloth or sponge to remove any residue.
Using the Appliance
  1. Place the appliance on a dry, level, stable, heat-resistant surface.
  2. Ensure the appliance is closed, latched, and rotated onto its side so that the dual red/green Indicator Lights are facing straight upward.
  3. Plug the power cord into a 120V dedicated outlet. The red Indicator Light will light up to indicate the appliance is preheating.
  4. Wait for the appliance to finish preheating, indicated by the adjacent green Indicator Light lighting up.
  5. Unlatch and open the appliance, being careful not to touch the interior. Add the first layer of batter, which should be as little as needed to cover the waffle prongs on the bottom of the appliance (Fig. i). After sitting for a few seconds, the battery will begin to rise a little.
  6. Center the filling over the first layer of batter (Fig. ii) and cover with the remaining batter, filling up to about three-quarters of the way to the top (Fig. iii). DO NOT fill all the way to the top; this is overfilling and will cause leaking during the cooking process.
  7. Close and latch the appliance. Then, use the handle to flip the appliance over (Fig. iv). After 5–7 minutes, the appliance can be opened to check on the status of the food. The appliance can be closed again to continue the cooking process for more well-done food. DO NOT try to open the appliance during the cooking process. Steam can build up while the batter is cooking.
  8. When the food is done cooking, it can be removed from the appliance. Wear oven gloves/mitts before handling to protect against escaping steam. Unlatch and open the appliance. Then, use plastic/wooden/rubber utensils to carefully lift the waffle onto a plate. Do not use sharp metal utensils that may scratch the nonstick coating in the appliance (Fig. v).
  9. Unplug the appliance and let it cool before cleaning the appliance (see the “Care & Cleaning” section).

This appliance has a nonstick coating. DO NOT use nonstick sprays with this appliance. A small amount of vegetable oil can be applied before pouring the batter to help remove the cooked waffle. It is normal for steam to escape and condensation to build upon the sides of the appliance during operation.

Cooking Guidelines & Tips

Tips

  • Wearing oven mitts/gloves can protect against accidental contact with the heated surfaces and escaping steam when unlatching the appliance.
  • Fillings such as meats, chicken, and eggs should be cooked and frozen foods should be thawed before using them to make waffles. The cooking time is not long enough and the cooking temperature is not hot enough to adequately cook uncooked food or heat frozen food used for filling.
  • The first layer of batter added should be as little as needed to cover the waffle prongs on the bottom of the appliance. After sitting for a few seconds, the batter will begin to rise a little. Then, add your filling (centered in the middle of the batter). The filling should not be placed near the edges of the batter. After the filling is added, cover it with the remaining batter, close the lid, and flip the appliance.
  • If using canned fruits that are in syrup or vegetables that are in liquid (not pie filling), drain as much liquid as possible before using as a filling.
  • If your filling is more solid food, like diced ham, scrambled eggs, or nuts, you can add your filling and press it down into the batter with the back of a spoon. Be sure to cover the filling with the second layer of batter.
  • The 5-inch appliance can hold approximately 1 cup of batter for an unstuffed waffle. The 7- inch appliance can hold approximately 1 ½ cups of batter for an unstuffed waffle. Stuffed waffles use less batter. The batter should only fill to about three-quarters of the way to the top of the inside of the appliance. Expect the batter to expand during the cooking process.
  • For maximum food safety, the U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends 165° F/74° C for all poultry; 160° F/71° C for ground beef, lamb, and pork; and 145° F/63° C, with a 3-minute resting period, for all other types of beef, lamb, and pork. Also review the USDA Food Safety Standards.
  • To prevent scratching the coating, use only nonmetallic utensils. Do not lift or cut food in the appliance using sharp utensils, such as forks and knives, which can scratch the cooking surface.
  • Do not use steel wool or other metal pads. They could leave coarse scratches. Always rinse thoroughly and dry immediately with a soft towel.
  • Never stand the appliance up vertically while cooking. Only stand up the appliance for storage.

Troubleshooting

If Your Appliance Is Not Working Correctly

  • Make sure the power cord is plugged into a dedicated outlet.
  • The appliance may not be able to draw enough operating power from the outlet. Try switching the power cord to an outlet that has no other appliances attached to it.
  • If the appliance cannot be latched shut, make sure there is nothing blocking or impeding the closure in any way. Additionally, make sure there is not too much food or batter in the appliance.
  • If the fillings have not been cooked or heated completely: Ensure that fillings are pre-cooked if necessary and heat before adding them to the appliance.

Care & Cleaning

  1. Clean the appliance after each use. Unplug the power cord from the outlet and be certain the appliance is thoroughly cooled before cleaning. DO NOT soak or submerge the appliance in water or wash in a dishwasher.
  2. Wipe the outside of the appliance with a warm, moist cloth and mild detergent.
  3. Clean the inside of the appliance with warm water, a mild detergent, and a non-abrasive cloth or sponge.
  4. Rinse the appliance with a clean, damp cloth. Use a clean, dry cloth to dry the appliance interior. Do not leave standing water in the appliance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the appliance need time to heat up?
Yes. The appliance will preheat automatically when plugged into an electrical outlet. The green Indicator Light illuminates when preheating is finished and cooking can begin.

How hot does this appliance get?
The temperature range is 302° F–374° F (150° C–190° C).

How will I know when cooking is complete?
Check your food after 5–7 minutes.

How much waffle batter do I need?
The 5-inch appliance can hold approximately 1 cup of batter for an unstuffed waffle. The 7-inch appliance can hold approximately 1 ½ cups of batter for an unstuffed waffle. Stuffed waffles use less batter. The batter should only fill to about three quarters of the way to the top of the inside of the appliance. Expect the batter to expand during the cooking process.

Can I make a waffle with no filling?
Yes. You will need approximately 1 cup of batter for the 5-inch appliance or 1 ½ cups of batter for the 7-inch appliance. Quantities of batter may vary depending on your recipe and the batter used. Stuffed waffles will use less batter. Never fill the interior of the appliance above three-quarters capacity. Refer to the recipe guide for examples of the amounts of batter used with different fillings.

Why did the batter leak out of the sides during the cooking cycle?
Too much batter was added.

Why are there gaps in my waffle or why is my filling not covered?
Not enough batter was added before or after adding the filling.

Why is the waffle not crispy?
You can leave your waffle in the appliance longer to cook it more, making it crispier.
Can I use gluten-free or keto waffle batter in this appliance?
Yes. Gluten-free flour can be used to make batters to use in the appliance. Follow your recipe.

Can I use puréed fruit like applesauce in place of oil in the batter recipes?
Yes, waffles can be made successfully using puréed fruit as a substitute for oil.

When I lift the baked waffle, the waffle separates and only the top half of the waffle comes out. What I am doing wrong?
The waffle may have too much filling, the filling might not be centered, the waffle has not been baked long enough, or not enough batter has been used. Make sure the filling is centered so that the edges of the waffle can seal when it cooks. Bake the waffle for another 30 seconds to 1 minute to allow the waffle to cook through.

How do I stop operation/cool the appliance?
You must unplug the appliance to stop the heating process and allow at least 30 minutes to cool.

What happens if the appliance still does not work after I have tried all the troubleshooting suggestions?
Never attempt home repair. Contact Customer Service and follow the procedures set forth by the manual. Failure to do so could render your guarantee null and void.
