Use: 1. Every microwave is different due to varying wattages and capacity. Therefore, the preheating time and cooking time can vary. For the first few uses of your QuickCrisp, you will need to determine the amount of time your microwave requires to preheat the pan to cooking temperature. This will be between 2 to 3 minutes total. Do not exceed 3 minutes preheat time. 2. We recommend preheating on full power but note that power settings do vary by recipe. Refer to our recipe booklet for recommended power settings for certain foods. 3. When preheating QuickCrisp, always remove the lid. 4. When the QuickCrisp is preheated, you can test the temperature by sprinkling a drop or two of water onto the preheated plate. The water should immediately sizzle and evaporate, meaning the plate is ready to cook on. 5. QuickCrisp may also be used without its lid. The lid prevents spattering and is desirable when cooking foods that are juicy, such as meat, or vegetables, which are best when moist. For foods where crispness is desired, such as tater tots, pizza or grilled cheese, we recommend using QuickCrisp™ without its lid, allowing steam to dissipate. 6. Overheating of your food can cause burning and create smoke, and will damage your pan. For this reason, it is imperative that your QuickCrisp never be preheated for more than 3 minutes and cook times should be carefully monitored per the recipe for each food. If accidentally overheated, ventilate the room and leave the area until the smoke dissipates. 7. If you plan to make the same meal twice, back to back with the QuickCrisp, it will need to be preheated again between uses, for 1-2 minutes without food. Do not exceed three back-to-back uses at a time to allow your microwave to cool down and safely operate.
Care: 1. Before initial use and after subsequent uses, hand wash with warm, soapy water. Not recommended for dishwasher use. 2. Do not use on the stovetop or in the oven; for microwave use only. 3. Base, cook plate, and lid will become very hot during use. Always use oven mitts when transferring a hot pan from the microwave or when removing lid from cooked food, as hot steam will be present. 4. Cook food in 30-45 second increments until desired doneness is achieved. Flipping foods halfway through cooktime will result in more even browning and crispness. 5. Let QuickCrisp™ cool fully before washing and storing. 6. Proper cleaning of your QuickCrisp after every use is imperative, as left-over oil or food residue can result in smoke and may damage your pan. To thoroughly wash, separate into three components (base, cook plate, and lid) and hand wash with warm soapy water, then rinse and dry each part.
