  • Do not use the appliance unless the handles and knob are securely attached.
  • Keep the product out of the reach of children and pets. This product is not intended for use by children. Close adult supervision is necessary when any appliance is used near children.
  • Unplug the appliance from the electrical outlet before cleaning and when not in use. Allow to cool down completely before assembling, disassembling, relocating, or cleaning the appliance.
  • Do not operate the product if it has a damaged power cord or plug, or after the appliance malfunctions or has been damaged in any manner. Do not attempt to examine or repair this product yourself. Please call the customer service number provided in this user manual.
  • Do not leave the product unattended while it is in use. Always unplug the product from the electrical outlet when not in use.
  • Use extreme caution when moving an appliance containing hot oil or any other hot liquids.
  • Always attach the magnetic plug to the appliance first, then plug the cord into the wall outlet. To disconnect, switch the control to OFF, remove the plug from the outlet, and then remove the magnetic plug from the appliance. Pull directly on the plug – do not pull on the power cord.
  • Take proper precautions to prevent burns, fire, or personal or property damage as this appliance generates heat and steam during use.
  • Do not plug or unplug the product into/from the electrical outlet with a wet hand.
  • Use the product in a well-ventilated area.
  • Keep the product away from curtains, wall coverings, clothing, dishtowels, or other flammable materials.
  • The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the appliance manufacturer may cause injuries.
  • This product is intended for indoor, non-commercial use in cooking or heating food items for human consumption. Do not use it outdoors or for any other purpose.
  • Do not allow the power cord to hang (e.g., over the edge of a table or counter) or touch hot surfaces
  • Do not place the product on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a heated oven or microwave oven.
  • Always place the product on a flat, level, stable surface – it is not recommended to use the appliance on temperature-sensitive surfaces
  • Use the provided plug only.
  • Connect the power plug to an easily accessible outlet so that the skillet can be unplugged immediately in the event of an emergency.
  • Do not use the skillet with a programmer or timing device that switches it on automatically. The use of such devices is dangerous and can cause a fire risk.
  • Do not use the appliance for anything other than its intended use.
  • Do not use metal utensils other than the fondue forks provided, as they will scratch the surface of the stainless steel pot.
  • A fondue containing hot oil should not be left unattended.
    CAUTION:
    Overtightening can result in the stripping of screws or nuts or the cracking of handles or feet.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

POLARIZED PLUG:
This appliance is equipped with a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). As a safety feature to reduce the risk of electrical shock, this plug is intended to fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this feature or modify the plug in any way. If the plug fits loosely into the AC outlet or if the AC outlet feels warm, do not use that outlet.

NOTE:
This product features a special “quick release” magnetic detachable cord. For increased safety and injury prevention, the cord is designed to detach from the heating element when accidentally tripped over or pulled on.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS:
A short detachable power-supply cord is to be provided to reduce risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.: Longer detachable power-supply cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use.

IF A LONG DETACHABLE POWER-SUPPLY CORD IS USED:

  • The marked electrical rating of the detachable power supply 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 longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter top or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.

SAVE THIS INSTRUCTION FOR FUTURE REFERENCE

Before first use:

  • Remove all packaging material. Ensure that no packaging material debris remains on the stainless steel or heating element.
  • Before the initial use, clean the pot, forks, and fondue ring in warm soapy water. Clean the heating element with a damp cloth – do not immerse the element in water.
  • Due to the initial heating of the materials used in the manufacturing of the product, some light smoke/vapors may be released when used initially. This is normal
  • Do not place the product on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a heated oven or microwave oven.
