How do I clean my skillet?
Allow the skillet to completely cool before cleaning. Unplug cord form wall outlet, then remove temperature control probe from appliance. Wipe probe clean with a dry towel. Never immerse control probe in water or other liquid. Immerse the skillet and lid in warm, soapy water and wash with a soft cloth. Rinse well and dry. Do not use steel wool, abrasive cleaners, or metal scouring pads on cooking surfaces as this will damage the non-stick coating.
My skillet has an odor and smokes a bit when I turn it on. Is this normal?
Due to manufacturing processes, during initial use of this appliance, some slight smoke and/or odor may be detected. This is normal with many heating appliances and will not recur after a few uses.
What types of utensils are safe to use when cooking with my skillet?
Use only plastic, nylon, or wooden utensils to avoid scratching the non-stick surface.
What kind of oil should I use in my skillet?
Select a vegetable oil or peanut oil for frying. Butter and olive oil should only be used to sauté foods on lower temperature settings. To pan-fry, do not use more than 1 cup of oil. If oil smokes, immediately turn skillet “OFF” and allow to cool.
