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.
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.
Use only plastic, nylon, or wooden utensils to avoid scratching the non-stick surface.
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.
