BEFORE FIRST USE
ANTES DEL PRIMER USO
Clean using a damp cloth or sponge and mild detergent. Wipe dry with a soft dry cloth.
- Position the Base Unit on a Stabel, level and heat resistant surface. Attach the Top Cover/ Chute to the Base Unit ensuring it is securely in place.
- Measure out 1 full measuring cup of kernels. IMPORTANT! The Popcorn Maker is designed to pop 1 measuring cup full of kernels per session and should never be operated with more (or less) than this amount. If more popcorn is required, allow the appliance to cool for several minutes before using again.
- Pour the Kernels into the Popping Chamber. CAUTION! Do not add any other ingredients such as oil, butter, margarine, salt or sugar to the Popcorn at this stage. This will only damage the appliance.
- Once the Kernels have been added, place the Measuring Cup into the small opening on the Top Cover.
- Place a large bowl or container (not supplied) beneath the Chute before connecting the Appliance to a mains outlet. Press the ON/OFF Switch to begin. DO NOT remove the Measuring Cup or Top Cover while the Popcorn Maker is operational.
- Avoid touching the surfaces during operation as they will be hot. Once the correct temperature has been reached, the kernels will begin popping and emerging through the Chute. When all kernels have popped, switch of the appliance using the ON/OFF Switch and allow to cool.
If you wish to serve your popcorn with butter drizzled over the top, add a small amount to the MEASURING CUP and sit in place on the TOP COVER/CHUTE before switching on. The heat from the POPPING CHAMBER will melt the butter in the MEASURING CUP and will be a perfect consistency once the popcorn making process has ended. Simply detach the MEASURING CUP, pour over the popcorn in your bowl or SERVING BOX and enjoy! Another tasty way to enjoy your popcorn is to drizzle it with caramel, melted chocolate or, for a savoury option, sprinkle with cheese and chives. Once the pack of kernels has been opened, store in an air-tight container in a cool, dry area to keep them fresh.
