Odor and smoke during first time use
On the first time use, My Cuisinart GR-4N Griddler began smoking and created a slight odor. Is there an issue with the device? Are there any necessary replacements?
Sometimes cooking items do give of an odor the first time they are heated up. Sometimes a little contamination on the cooking surface. It's kind a matter of where the smoke was coming from, inside or outside and if it smelled like wiring insulation burning. Please give us a better description of the symptoms and if it worked or not.
The Cuisinart Griddler GR- 4N cooking plates are nonstick surfaces and it is normal for nonstick surfaces have a smell and smoke a bit. Try cleaning the surfaces off and using it again it is unlikely there is a real issue with the device.
Trying to get my arms completely around my recently purchased Cuisinart Griddler GR-4N, I came across this information in the Cuisinart Instruction and Recipe Booklet Cuisinart Griddler GR-4N Series, page 4, "Before the First Use" Section: "Before using your Cuisinart Griddler for the first time, remove any dust from shipping by wiping the base, cover and controls with a damp cloth. Thoroughly clean cooking plates drip tray and scraping tool." I have experienced the smell of dust (seldom used ceramic heater, gas fireplace) and it does cause alarm.
One more thought for consideration is that manufacturers sometimes 'nail things down' during shipment with various kinds of tapes to keep parts secure during shipping. If per chance one of these tapes didn't get removed, that could possibly cause a smell when preheating the unit.
Happy indoor grilling!
