10. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug
or after the appliance malfunctions or has been damaged in
any manner. Return the appliance to the nearest authorized
service provider for examination, repair or adjustment.
11. Repairs on the appliance should only be carried out by

ment. Improper repairs may put the user at risk. Furthermore,
this invalidates the warranty.
12. Defective components must always be replaced with original

13. Do not use the appliance outdoors.
14.
Do not let cord hang over the edge of table or counter, or
touch hot surfaces.
15. Do not place the appliance on or near a hot gas or electric

of danger and that the power cord cannot become a tripping
hazard.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY.
This product contains chemicals known to the State of California
to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Important cord information
This appliance has a polarized plug. To reduce the risk of elec-
tric shock, there is only one way this plug is intended to fit into
a polarized outlet. If the plug does not completely fit into the
outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified
electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.
a) A short power supply cord (or detachable power supply cord)
should be used to reduce the risk resulting from becoming
entangled in, or tripping over a longer cord.
b) Longer detachable power supply cords or extensions cords
may be used if they are used carefully.
IB_286794_LB9.indb 5 07.09.17 15:28
6 US-EN SKGL 1500 A1
c) If a longer detachable power supply cord or extension cord is
used:
1) The marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension
cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the
appliance;
2) The cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over
the countertop or tabletop, where it can be pulled on by
children, or tripped over unintentionally; and
3) If the appliance has a grounded plug, the cord set or
extension cord should also be a grounded 3-wire cord.
Additional safety instructions
Ensure that the appliance never comes into contact with water
while the plug is inserted into a power outlet, especially if you
are using it in the kitchen and close to the sink.
Never immerse the appliance in water or other liquids.
Ensure that the power cord never gets wet or damp when the
appliance is in use. Route the cord so that it cannot be trapped
or damaged in any way.
Arrange for defective power plugs and/or cords to be replaced
as soon as possible by a qualified technician or by our customer
service department to avoid the risk of injury.
Set up the appliance as close as possible to the electrical power
outlet. Ensure that the power plug is quickly reachable in case of
danger, and also that there is no danger of tripping over the cord.
The appliance must be connected to a power outlet with a pro-
tective earth. The supply voltage must match the specifications
on the rating plate of the appliance.
Always disconnect the plug from the power outlet after use.
Simply turning the appliance off is not sufficient, as it remains
IB_286794_LB9.indb 6 07.09.17 15:28
US-EN 7
SKGL 1500 A1
under power for as long as the plug is inserted into the power
outlet.
Always hold the power cord by the plug. Never pull on the
power cord itself and never handle the cord with wet hands.
Do not place the appliance or any furniture or other items on
top of the power cord and avoid pinching it.
You must not open the housing of the appliance nor attempt to
repair or modify the appliance. When the housing is opened or
the appliance is modified by an unauthorized party, there is a
risk of death from electric shock and the warranty is invalidated.
Caution! Hot surface!
Parts of the appliance will become hot during operation; you
should only hold the appliance by the handle.
Baked foods can burn! Never set up and use the appliance in
the vicinity of flammable objects, especially not under curtains.
Do not use an external timer switch or a separate remote
control system to operate the appliance.
Never leave the appliance unattended during operation.
Ensure that the appliance, the power cord, and the plug do
not come into contact with heat sources such as hotplates or
naked flames.
To protect the non-stick coating, do not use metallic tools such
as knives, forks, etc. If the non-stick coating is damaged, stop
using the appliance.

There are 3 different ways of using this grill:
completely open, using both hot plates q as a tabletop grill.
with a movable upper hot plate q as a contact grill, e.g.
to grill meat from both sides.
with a fixed upper hot plate q as a panini grill, e.g. to
make grilled cheese toast.
Temperature settings
The ideal temperature depends on what you are grilling. Use the
following guide to determine the most suitable temperature:
194 °F (90 °C): keep-warm mode
300–350 °F (150–175 °C): low temperature, e.g. for
vegetables or panini
350–390 °F (175–200 °C): medium temperature, e.g. for fish
390–450 °F (200–230 °C): high temperature, e.g. for meat
The above temperature indications are merely a guide. Ideal
temperatures may vary depending on the condition of the food!
"Contact grill" position
1) Connect the power plug to the power outlet and press the
power button to turn the appliance on.
2) Set the desired temperature and, if necessary, heating time
as described in the "Operation" chapter and wait until the set
temperature has been reached.
3) Open the lid of the appliance and place the food on the
lower hot plate q.
4) Use the handle to close the lid of the appliance.
5) The movable upper hot plate q is always parallel to the low-
er hot plate q, even if thick food is being grilled.
This ensures optimal results.

14 US-EN SKGL 1500 A1
6) After a while, check how much your food has browned.
Use the handle to open the lid of the appliance.
Start with short grilling durations and increase the time until you
find the appropriate setting.
7) Once you are happy with the degree of browning, remove
your food from the grill.
Do not use pointed or sharp objects to remove your food.
They might damage the surface of the hot plates q.
8) Use the power button to turn off the appliance, then
disconnect the power plug from the power outlet.
Disconnect the power plug from the power outlet whenever you
are not using the appliance. Using the power button is not
sufficient to turn off the appliance.
"Tabletop grill" position

Tips and tricks
Marinade meat before grilling it to achieve especially tender
results and a shorter cooking time. You can use sour cream,
red wine, vinegar, buttermilk, or fresh fruit juice, e.g. papaya
or pineapple juice. Add herbs or spices depending on your
personal preferences. Do not add salt to your marinade as it
dehydrates the meat and makes it tough. Fully submerge the
meat in the marinade and close the container. Ideally, allow it
to marinade over night.
The hot plates qhave non-stick coating, so you do not
need to add extra oil or fat. If you wish to use extra oil or fat
anyway, choose a product that is suitable for frying food, e.g.
rapeseed oil.
Use meat that has the same thickness throughout to ensure
even cooking.
If you are uncertain whether the meat is fully cooked on the
inside, use a standard meat thermometer.
