Cooking Guidelines

Internal Temperature Meat Chart

Use this chart and a food thermometer to ensure that meat, poultry, seafood, and other cooked foods reach a safe minimum internal temperature.
†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.

Internal Temperature

Before Using the Appliance for the First Time

  1. Read all material, warning stickers, and labels.
  2. Remove all packing materials, labels, and stickers.
  3. Hand-wash the accessories: Wash all parts and accessories used in the cooking process with warm, soapy water.
  4. Wipe the inside and outside of the appliance with a warm, moist cloth and mild detergent. Rinse with a warm, moist cloth.
  5. Place the appliance on a stable, horizontal, and level surface. Do not place the appliance on a surface that is not heat resistant. Ensure that the appliance is used in an area with good air circulation and away from hot surfaces and any combustible materials. Do not place on a stove top.
  6. Before cooking food, preheat the appliance for a few minutes to allow the manufacturer’s protective coating of oil to burn off. Wipe the appliance with warm, soapy water and a dishcloth after this burn-in cycle.
    NOTE: Never wash or submerge the cooking appliance in water.

Preparing for Use

  1. Place the appliance on a stable, level, horizontal, and heat-resistant surface.
  2. Select the cooking accessory for your recipe.
  3. Before initial use and after subsequent use, hand wash the cooking accessories. Then, wipe the outside and inside of the appliance with a warm, moist cloth and mild detergent.

WARNING

  • NEVER use the appliance’s door as a place to rest accessories filled with food. The accessories could damage the door or cause the appliance to tip. Personal injury could result.
  • During the cooking process, the cooking accessories will become very hot. When you remove the accessories to check on the progress, make sure you have a trivet or a heat-resistant surface nearby to set
    it down on. NEVER place the accessories directly on a countertop or table.

General Operating Instructions

Cooking with the Appliance
  1. Plug the power cord into a 120V dedicated outlet. Press the Power Button once.
  2. To preheat: Set the desired cooking temperature and set the cooking time to 3 minutes. The appliance will automatically start preheating a few seconds after a preset function is selected or the time and/or temperature are adjusted manually. Alternatively, you can press the Power Button to begin the cooking cycle immediately once the cooking time and temperature have been selected.
  3. When the appliance has preheated, place the ingredients on your chosen accessory. Put the chosen accessory into the appliance and shut the door. Select a preset function (see the “Cooking Presets” section) or manually set the temperature and then the time.

NOTE: You may open the appliance’s door to view your food at any time during the process to check the progress.
NOTE: Consult the charts in this manual or the Recipe Books to determine the correct settings.

Tips

  • Foods that are smaller in size usually require a slightly shorter cooking time than larger ones.
  • Larger quantities of food may require a longer cooking time than smaller quantities of food.
  • Flipping or turning food halfway through the cooking process ensures that the food is evenly cooked. Set the timer to half the time needed for the recipe and the timer bell will alert you when it is time to flip or
    rotate food. When you hear the timer bell, the preset preparation time has elapsed.
  • Misting a bit of vegetable oil on fresh potatoes is suggested for a crispier result. When adding a little oil, do so just before cooking.
  • Snacks normally cooked in an oven can also be cooked in the appliance.
  • Use premade dough to prepare filled snacks quickly and easily. Premade dough also requires a shorter cooking time than homemade dough.
  • A baking pan or oven dish can be placed on a Crisper Tray inside the appliance when cooking foods such as cakes or quiches. Using a tin or dish is also recommended when cooking fragile or filled foods.

Cooking Chart

Settings

The Cooking Chart will help you select the correct temperature and time for best results. As you become more familiar with the appliance’s cooking process, you may adjust these settings to suit your own personal tastes.
NOTE: Keep in mind that these settings are approximations. Since ingredients differ in origin, size, shape, and brand, we cannot guarantee the best settings for your ingredients.
