Use only plastic, nylon or wooden utensils to avoid scratching the non-stick surface. Never cut food on the griddle.
Always allow the griddle to completely cool before cleaning. Unplug cord from wall outlet. Remove temperature control probe from appliance if equipped. Wipe probe clean with a dry towel. Never immerse control probe or electrical cord in water or other liquid. Remove grease tray and discard contents. Immerse the griddle and grease tray in hot, 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. To remove stubborn stains, use a plastic scouring pad and mild dishwashing liquid.
