Before first use, remove and safely discard any packing material, promotional labels and tape from the waffle maker.

  1. Wipe the waffle maker cooking plates with a damp sponge or cloth. Dry thoroughly and close the lid.
  2. Place the waffle maker on a flat, dry surface. Ensure there is a minimum distance of 20cm of space on all sides of the waffle maker.Do not place  anything on top of the waffle maker.
  3.  Unwind the power cord completely and insert the power plug into a grounded 220–240V power outlet.
  4.  Turn the POWER / DARKNESS Control Dial clockwise to the desired setting to start pre-heating the waffle maker. The POWER light will be illuminated.
  5.  Use the POWER / DARKNESS control dial to adjust the brownness of your waffle. There are 7 darkness settings ranging from 1 (lightest) to MAX (darkest). Rotate the dial clockwiseto increase the brownness or  counterclockwiseto decrease it
  6. Once the waffle maker has completed preheating, three audible alerts will sound and the READY light will illuminate.
  7.  Open the lid and pour approximately 125ml of batter evenly on the center of the waffle plate. The batter should cover the peaks of the waffle plate.
    NOTE :  When using the waffle maker for the first time you may notice a fine smoke haze. This is caused by the initial heating of some of the components and is not a cause for concern.
  8. Close the lid but keep the locking latch open. As the cooking cycle progresses the READY light will switch off.
  9. At the end of the cooking cycle, three audible alerts will sound and the READY light will illuminate. Open the lid and carefully remove your waffles.
    NOTE : There can be slight variations between cooking cycles. If your waffles are not at your desired darkness, close the lid and  cook for an additional minute.
  10. .For the most consistent results, add the next batch of batter immediately after removing the cooked waffle and repeat steps 7 through 8.
    NOTE : If the next batch of batter is not added immediately after removing the cooked waffle, close the lid and allow the waffle maker to properly reheat (the READY light will switch off and then back on) before adding batter.
  11. If you are not cooking any more waffles, turn the POWER / DARKNESS control dial to the OFF position.



  1. Before cleaning, ensure the POWER / DARKNESS control dial is set to the OFF position and then remove the power plug from the power outlet.
  2. Allow your waffle maker to cool slightly before cleaning. The waffle maker is easier to clean when slightly warm.
  3. Always clean your waffle maker after each use to prevent a build-up of baked-on foods. Wipe cooking plates and overflow moat with a soft cloth to remove food residue.


The cooking plates, hinges and overflow moat are coated with a PFOA-FREE non-stick finish. This minimises the need for oil, prevents food from sticking, and makes cleaning easier. Do not use metal or other abrasive cleaning tools on non-stick surfaces as they will damage the coating. Use only warm soapy water and remove stubborn residue with a non-abrasive plastic scouring pad or nylon brush.

NOTE :  Do not use non-stick cooking sprays as they can impact the performance of the non-stick surface on the cooking plates.


To store your waffle maker:

  1. Ensure the POWER / DARKNESS control dial is set to the OFF position and then unplug power cord from the power outlet.
  2. Allow the waffle maker to cool completely.
  3. Set the locking latch to the locked position.
  4. Wrap the power cord in the cord wrap area below the waffle maker.
  5. Store the waffle maker on a flat, dry level surface.
