OPERATION INSTRUCTION

  1. PREHEAT – To preheat individual sections, turn the switch dial to high for 10 – 20 minutes before the foods are placed in the compartments. Insure that pan openings are covered to prevent loss of heat.
  2. If only part of the food warmers is needed, the compartment not in use does not need to be heated.
  3. SWITCH SETTINGS
    a. The most satisfactory switch settings must be determined by experience based on the nature of the foodservice and the type of operation as well as individual preference of the restaurant operator. The proper switch setting necessary to keep foods at the desired temperature will vary dependent upon the frequency of turnover, size of food containers, amount of food in each container, room temperature, location of food warmer with respect to range or other heated equipment, air outlets, fans, doors and passageways.

CLEANING

Insure the appliance has been turned off and has had sufficient time for all surfaces to cool down before cleaning.

DAILY CLEANING

  1. Turn the control knob to the OFF position and allow unit to cool before cleaning.
  2. Clean or remove water from the well.
    CAUTION: Do not allow water to splash or run on to the controls or wiring.
  3. Use a soft cloth or sponge with a mild detergent to clean the entire warmer assembly.
    Rinse completely with warm water and then dry.
  4. A plastic scouring pad and a mild detergent may be used to remove hardened food.
    NOTICE: Do not use steel wool.

WEEKLY CLEANING

  1. Scale deposits due to the mineral content of the water may be removed using a plastic scouring pad and a de-scaling agent approved for use on stainless steel. It is important to keep these deposits from building up as they may cause corrosion of the stainless steel well.
  2. After de-scaling, the well assembly should be rinsed thoroughly with a solution of vinegar and water to neutralize all cleaner residues.
  3. Wipe the well assembly dry and leave uncovered.

WARNING
Do not use any highly caustic cleaners, acids or ammonia. These may cause corrosion and/or damage to the stainless steel well. Do not allow water to stand in the well.
Water must be removed from the well and the well cleaned after each use.

CLEANING PROCEDURES FOR THE CUTTING BOARDS

When high pressure cleaning equipment is not available; use hot water, a granular cleanser or detergent and a stiff bristle brush. (Abrasive action is necessary, as simply wiping the board will not suffice.) After Scrubbing, rinse thoroughly with hot water. Allow to lie flat.

Several excellent germicidal cleaners are also available, including Calgon’s “Big Cat” and Johnson’s “Break Up”. Clorox is another good cleaner and is USDA approved.

The tabletop material is cut into sections not larger than 36″ in any plane, and no section weighs more than fifty (50) pounds. These are stipulations of the National Sanitation Foundation to facilitate cleaning. The tops should be turned over daily to reduce possibility of warping and should never be stood on end. Periodically, go over the board with a clean, flat stainless steel scraper to help seal some of the knife marks.

The use of cleavers on synthetic boards or tabletops is not recommended.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Always ask and check the following:

TROUBLE SHOOTING GUIDE

  1. Problem: Unit does not heat:
    a. Has unit been connected to a proper electrical source of the proper voltage?
    b. Is electric turned on at the main? Check the circuit breaker or fuse.
    c. Are the control knobs set to the “ON” position?
  2. Problem: Unit does not maintain proper food temperature.
    a. Are the controls set to the proper setting?
    b. Has unit been pre-heated appropriately?
    c. Were pans of food placed into unit at or above desired temperature?
    d. Has the food been kept covered?
    e. Are there air conditioning ducts, take-up air ducts or fans located near or over unit, causing cool drafts?
    f. Has unit been connected to a proper electrical source of the proper voltage? If so, is there a “low” voltage condition?

PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE

Please follow the cleaning section for the daily and weekly preventative maintenance schedule.

  1. Use the proper tools.
    When cleaning stainless steel products, use non-abrasive tools. Soft cloths and plastic scouring pads will not harm steel’s passive layer. Stainless steel pads also can be used but the scrubbing motion must be in the direction of the manufacturers’ polishing marks.
  2. Clean with the polish lines
    Some stainless steel comes with visible polishing lines or “grain.” When visible lines are present, always scrub in a motion parallel to the lines. When the grain cannot be seen, play it safe and use a soft cloth or plastic scouring pad.
  3. Use alkaline, alkaline chlorinated or non-chloride containing cleaners.
    While many traditional cleaners are loaded with chlorides, the industry is providing an ever-increasing choice of non-chloride cleaners. If you are not sure of chloride content in the cleaner used, contact your cleaner supplier. If your present cleaner contains chlorides, ask your supplier if they have an alternative. Avoid cleaners containing quaternary salts; it also can attack stainless steel and cause pitting and rusting.
  4. Keep your food equipment clean.
    Use alkaline, alkaline chlorinated or non-chloride cleaners at recommended strength. Clean frequently to avoid build-up of hard, stubborn stains. If you boil water in stainless steel equipment, remember the single most likely cause of damage is chlorides in the water.
    Heating cleaners that contain chlorides have a similar effect.
  5. Rinse.
    If chlorinated cleaners are used, wipe equipment and supplies dry immediately.
    The sooner you wipe off standing water, especially when it contains cleaning agents, the better. After wiping equipment down, allow it to air dry; oxygen helps maintain the stainless steels passivity film.
  6. Never use hydrochloric acid (muriatic acid) on stainless steel.
  7. Regularly restore/passivate stainless steel.
