BEFORE USING FOR THE FIRST TIME

When using for the first time, wash the electric skillet base and glass lid in warm soapy water, rinse and wipe them dry. Ensure that the temperature control probe is removed before washing. Next, using a paper towel, “season” the nonstick cooking surface by rubbing lightly with cooking oil. Your Bialetti skillet is now all set to use.

Using your Electric Skillet

  1. Place the skillet on a dry level surface. Also, place a heat resistant counter protector, such as aluminum foil, under appliance to prevent possible heat damage to your counter top.
  2. Insert the Temperature Control Probe into the skillet making sure the two electrical pins on the skillet are fully inserted into the heat control unit.
  3. Connect the power cord to a polarized outlet only.
  4. Turn the temperature control probe to the desired temperature (see pages 5 to 6 for cooking temperatures), and then remove the cover to preheat the skillet. The light on the temperature control probe goes off when the skillet reaches the selected temperature.

    Preheat time: 12 minutes

    NOTE: THE WHITE CERAMIC COATING MAY TURN SLIGHTLY YELLOW WHEN THE UNIT IS HEATED. THIS IS NORMAL AND WILL NOT AFFECT THE PERFORMANCE OF THE UNIT OR THE QUALITY/TASTE OF THE FOOD COOKED. ONCE THE UNIT IS COOLED, THE CERAMIC COATING COLOR WILL GO BACK TO WHITE.

  5. Prepare the food for cooking. The skillet has a ceramic nonstick finish, and therefore, food may be prepared with little oil. You can use your favorite cooking oils such as vegetable oil, olive oil, canola oil etc.
    CAUTION: DO NOT USE COOKING SPRAYS. THEY CAN CAUSE A BUILD-UP ON THE COOKING PLATES AND MAY AFFECT THE NON-STICK PERFORMANCE OF THE PRODUCT.
  6. Place food in skillet and cook according to the temperature-timetable (pages 5 to 6).
    The heat can be adjusted at any time according to personal preference, or dependent on the type of food being cooked. The light on the temperature control probe goes on and off during cooking, indicating the skillet is maintaining the desired temperature. This condition is normal and the skillet is not malfunctioning.
  7. Turn the temperature control probe to OFF when cooking is completed. Then unplug the temperature control probe from the wall outlet and from the appliance.

Cleaning and Maintaining Your Electric Skillet

  1. Unplug the skillet and detach the temperature control probe.
  2. The skillet base is NOT dishwasher safe. You can wash it with warm soapy water and rinse it dry after each use. All parts except the temperature control probe are fully immersible. NOTE: Only the SKILLET LID is dishwasher safe.
    CAUTION: The temperature control probe must always be removed before cleaning the unit with water and you must ensure that it is completely dry before use.
  3. For best results, use nylon, plastic, wooden, or rubber utensils. Do not use metal utensils as they may scratch the Ceramic nonstick surface. Also, do not cut food on the cooking surface.
  4. Clean the nonstick surface with a non-metal cleaning pad after each use. Firm pressure can be applied if necessary but do not rub vigorously as this may damage the Ceramic non-stick coated surface.
  5. Do not use steel wool or abrasive kitchen cleaners to clean the electric skillet.
  6. Soaking the skillet to loosen food reside for more than 2 hours may damage the ceramic non-stick finish.
  7. The finish around the heating element may darken over the course of time. To remove this discoloration, use a commercial de-stainer. Also, make sure to clean any cleaning solution that comes in contact with the exterior of the appliance.
  8. It is recommended that the cooking surface be wiped lightly with cooking oil before using the skillet again after it has come in contact with a commercial cleaner. Wipe away spills and drips on the exterior of the skillet immediately in order to keep the skillet looking attractive and presentable. Use a cleaning pad dipped in warm soapy water to remove food that has burnt to the exterior of the skillet. Then rinse and wipe dry all surfaces.
    MPORTANT: The temperature control probe can get damaged easily. Avoid rough handling in use and storage.

CAUTION: THE SKILLET IS NOT DISHWASHER SAFE. YOU CAN WASH IT WITH WARM SOAPY WATER AND RINSE IT DRY AFTER EACH USE. ALL PARTS EXCEPT THE TEMPERATURE CONTROL PROBE ARE FULLY IMMERSIBLE.

Steps for stain removal and proper care of your Aeternum ceramic non-stick coating

  1. Identify stained areas on the cooking surface and sprinkle some baking soda on the stains.
  2. Moisten the baking soda to get a paste like texture by adding some water.
  3. Let the paste stand for a few minutes on the stains (not more than an hour)
  4. Rub with a soft damp cloth or lightly scrub with a plastic scouring pad, wipe clean and dry thoroughly.
    NOTE: Do not rub vigorously when using a plastic scouring pad and NEVER use a metal scouring pad as this may damage the non-stick coating.
  5. Repeat the cycle once again if necessary

The performance and non-stick property of the Aeternum ceramic non-stick coating will not be affected due to stains.
