• When making the first waffle on the Smart Waffle™ 4-Slice set the DARKNESS dial to the middle setting. This will allow you to see whether your preference is lighter or darker then the center setting. It is best to do this with each waffle type so that a more defined preferential setting can be selected.
  • Do not use non-stick cooking sprays as they can impact the performance of the non-stick surface on the cooking plates.
  • You can lift the lid during cooking to check the doneness of the waffles. However, if the lid remains open for more than 7 seconds, the COOKING light will switch off and the READY light will illuminate. Once the lid is closed again, the cooking cycle will start again from the beginning.
  • When making waffles, select the darkness setting you would like and turn the POWER dial to ON. The PREHEATING light will illuminate.
  • Once the plates are heated to the proper temperature, the PREHEATING light wil switch off and the READY light will illuminate.
  • Always keep the lid closed when preheating the waffle maker.
