IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

WARNING:
Read this manual carefully and completely and retain it for future reference. Failure to adhere to safety instructions may result in serious injury or damage.

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

  1. This appliance can be used by persons with reduced physical, sensory, or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge if they have been given supervision or instruction concerning the use of the appliance in a safe way and understand the hazards involved.
  2. Keep the appliance and its cord out of reach of children. DO NOT allow the appliance to be used by children. Close supervision is necessary when used near children.
  3. Children should not play with the appliance.
  4. NEVER use the electrical socket below the counter.
  5. NEVER connect this appliance to an external timer switch or a separate remote-control system.
  6. When using this appliance, provide at least 6 inches (15.25 cm) of space above and on all sides for air circulation.
  7. To protect against electrical shock, DO NOT immerse the cord, plugs, or main unit housing in water or other liquid. Cook only in the basket provided.
  8. Regularly inspect the appliance and power cord. DO NOT use the appliance if there is damage to the power cord or plug. If the appliance malfunctions or has been damaged in any way, immediately stop use and call Customer Service.
  9. DO NOT use an extension short cord. A short power-supply cord is used to reduce the risk of children grabbing the cord or becoming entangled and to reduce the risk of people tripping over a longer cord.
  10. ALWAYS ensure the appliance is properly assembled before use.
  11. DO NOT cover the air intake vent or air outlet while the unit is operating. Doing so will prevent even cooking and may damage the unit or cause it to overheat.

  13. This appliance is for household use only. DO NOT use this appliance for anything other than its intended use. DO NOT use in moving vehicles or boats. DO NOT use outdoors. Misuse may cause injury.
  14. Intended for worktop use only. Ensure the surface is level, clean, and dry. DO NOT move the appliance when in use.
  15. DO NOT place the appliance near the edge of a worktop during operation.
  16. DO NOT use accessory attachments not recommended or sold by the manufacturer. DO NOT place accessories in a microwave, toaster oven, convection oven, or conventional oven or on a ceramic cooktop, electric coil, gas burner rang,e or outdoor grill. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock, or injuries.
  17. ALWAYS ensure the basket is properly closed before operating.
  18. DO NOT use the appliance without the removable basket installed.
  19. DO NOT use this appliance for deep-frying.
  20. DO NOT place the appliance on hot surfaces near a hot gas or electric burner or in a heated oven.

  23. Socket voltages can vary, affecting the performance of your product. To prevent possible illness, use a thermometer to check that your food is cooked to the temperatures recommended.
  24. Should the unit emit black smoke, unplug it immediately. Wait for smoking to stop before removing any cooking accessories.
  25. DO NOT touch hot surfaces. Appliance surfaces are hot during and after operation. To prevent burns or personal injury, ALWAYS use protective hot pads or insulated oven mitts and use available handles.
  26. Extreme caution must be used when the appliance contains hot food. Improper use may result in personal injury.
  27. 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.
  28. Spilled food can cause serious burns. Keep appliances and cords away from children. DO NOT let the cord hang over the edges of tables or counters or touch hot surfaces.

WARNING:
THE FAILURE TO FOLLOW ANY OF THE IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS AND/OR THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR SAFE USE IS A MISUSE OF YOUR APPLIANCE THAT CAN VOID YOUR WARRANTY AND CREATE THE RISK OF SERIOUS INJURY.

Notes on the plug
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug fits in 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 modify the plug in any way.

Notes on the cord
The provided short power-supply cord should be used to reduce the risk resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. An extension cord is not recommended for use with this product. Always plug directly into a wall outlet or receptacle.

Electric power
If the electrical circuit is overloaded with other appliances, your appliance may not operate properly. It should be operated on a separate electrical circuit from other appliances.
