  • ELECTRICITY PRECAUTIONS To protect against electric shock, do not immerse cord, plugs, or any other electric parts in water or other liquids.

    Do not operate appliance with a damaged cord or plug.

    Do not use this appliance outdoors.

    Always unplug the appliance from outlet and allow to cool before cleaning.

    Do not leave the appliance plugged in when it is not in use.

    Once this unit is plugged into an outlet it should not be left unattended.

    A short power cord is provided with this appliance to reduce the risk of entanglement or tripping. While we do not recommend it, extension cords may be used if care is exercised. If an extension cord is used, ensure that the marked electrical rating of the extension cord is equal or greater than the appliance. If the plug is of the grounded type, the extension cord must be a grounding-type 3-wire cord. To avoid pulling, tripping or entanglement, position the extension cord so that it does not hang over the edge of the counter, tabletop or any other area where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.

    For use only with 120V, 60HZ power. Use an outlet with a good ground connection.



    This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this

    plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully 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.

    HOW TO OPERATE1. Before first use, wipe down all surfaces with damp cloth.

    2. Find a dry, suitable, level surface near an electrical outlet.

    3. The cooking plates should be lightly coated with a small amount of vegetable oil. Vegetable oil can be applied with a paper towel, brush or nonstick oil spray. The oil will help protect the nonstick quality of the cooking surface. This should be done periodically to maintain the nonstick quality.

    4. Prepare the batter for the TWINKIES.

    5. Raise the lid of the appliance.

    6. Fill each of the six pastry wells in the nonstick cooking surface with batter mixture.

    7. Close the lid and plug in. Steam may be released from appliance during cooking. For your safety, avoid contact with steam, as it is very hot and can cause burns.

    8. Allow TWINKIES to cook for alotted time. Open the unit to check if the TWINKIES are ready. If they are cooked as desired, remove the plug from the power outlet and use a wooden utensil or heat proof spatula to remove the TWINKIES. If they are not completely cooked, close the unit and continue cooking for 4-7 minutes or until TWINKIES are golden brown.

    9. To cook additional TWINKIES, repeat the above steps. Reapply the plates with cooking oil, butter or margarine. You may want to use a pastry brush. Do not touch the hot plates.

    10.When finished, unplug the appliance from the electrical outlet. Allow the unit to cool before cleaning.

  • HELPFUL HINTS The HOSTESS TWINKIES Maker is designed for making six TWINKIES at a time. Uneven cooking may occur if less than 6 TWINKIES are made.

    DO NOT overfill the TWINKIES molds.

    After baking, place the TWINKIES on a cooling rack to cool down. Allow the TWINKIES to cool down before injecting the filling.
