A small part of the steel door and all of the housing are usually covered
with a thin, clear plastic coating to protect the mirror finish until it
reaches you. Just lift up the coating at a corner and peel it off. After
peeling away the coating, a light film of the coating adhesive may remain on
the metal surface. This is easily removed. See #7 - How to Clean Your
Be sure to remove the coating before you operate your brisker, as the heat
inside the Brisker will cause the coating to dry out and become difficult to
1. LOCATING YOUR BRISKER
Put your Brisker on a level surface in your kitchen, pantry or even
laundry room. If the door appears to be crooked, the surface is not level.
Do Not put it in the following locations:
- Next to your range - when your range is "on", the high heat will damage
the end caps.
- Directly over your washer, dryer or fridge - the heat from these
appliances may be excessive.
- Directly under an air conditioning or heat vent, or in direct unfiltered
sunlight - the brisker may become inefficient.
- Out of doors or anywhere it could get wet - it's electric.
- Inside of a poorly ventilated cabinet or closet.
2. HOW YOUR BRISKER WORKS
An energy-efficient, low-wattage electric heater is completely encased in
the insulated aluminum Brisker floor. Aluminum is a superior conductor of
heat and the low-wattage heater (which uses barely more electricity than
alarm clocks) maintains the floor at approximately 120°F. This is slightly
cooler than a drinkable cup of coffee.
The heated floor causes the air inside the Brisker to remain in the high
90's, thus removing humidity. If you put your finger on the floor, it will
feel warmer to you than 120°F. The reason is that aluminum is such an
efficient conductor of heat, it feels warmer than it really is.
3. WHAT TO PUT IN YOUR BRISKER
Almost any DRY food that you want to stay fresh, crisp, crunchy and
humidity free - cereal, chips, crackers, croutons, nuts, popcorn, pretzels,
etc. Leave the food box or bag open (not closed) so the warm air can get
inside and do its job. Many owners remove the bag from the box. Some snacks
that have a high oil content or very strong flavor may change flavor or
transfer their flavor if left in the Brisker for an extended period of time.
DO NOT put cereal that contains raisins or fruit chunks in the Brisker. They
will become hard as a rock.
4. DO NOT PUT BREAD IN THE BRISKER
The Brisker is NOT A BREAD BOX! Soft, moist bread, rolls, cake, etc.,
will become dry and crunchy. Your Brisker is also not a warming oven. Its
low-wattage heat was designed to eliminate humidity, not to warm food.
5. HOW TO FILL YOUR BRISKER
Always locate smaller boxes or bags vertically (not horizontally) so that
the warm air from the floor can flow up between them. Put larger boxes
horizontally on top of the smaller ones. Do Not put a large box horizontally
on the brisker floor, as it will block the heat flow.
6. HOW TO CLEAN YOUR BRISKER
The shiny housing and door are made of mirror-finish stainless steel. The
floor is made of aluminum. Window glass cleaners usually work quite well
inside and out for routine cleaning.
Never immerse your Brisker in water or wash it with a wet cloth. Always
unplug and allow it to cool before cleaning inside. (See UL Important
Safeguards, below.) Never coat the inside with any type of polish, as a
residue may remain and react adversely when heated.
7. OPENING THE DOOR WITH ONE HAND
The Brisker door is hinged at the bottom and is held tightly closed by a
magnetic strip located inside the top of the door. Air slots along the door
sides provide adequate ventilation.
To easily open the door with one hand, do the following: Place your fingers
under the door handle and pull toward you. At the same time, press with your
thumb against the Brisker housing just above the door. This allows you to
easily overcome the magnet's locking strength.
8. STORING YOUR BRISKER (OFF SEASON)
If you do not use your Brisker all year, be sure to store it in a dry
(not damp or humid) location.
9. QUESTIONS OR SERVICE
If you have a question, or need service, please call 513-871-5475.
Service should only be done by the manufacturer.
10. NOW PLUG IN YOUR BRISKER & ENJOY
There are no switches or thermostats to adjust. After your plug in your
Brisker, the floor will warm in about 15 minutes.
