There may be times throughout the year when you could use an extra burner for food preparation or just to keep some foods warm during a party or birthday celebration. The Cuisinart cast-iron single burner model CB-30 has just come to your rescue. This burner provides up to 1300 watts of power with a 7-inch burner. These burners are great for the kitchen or dorm at school or any other use.

The hot plate is made of heavy-duty cast-iron for durability. The heating element has six settings to choose from. It has some safety features such as Ready or On to let you know the unit is on and when the desired temperature has been reached according to the setting used.

This hot burner can be used for cooking, boiling, and frying. There is no limit to the types of food you can cook using this burner.

When using the burner, place a pot or pan, in the center of the burner. It is recommended that you use a pot or pan that is the same size as the burner. After you are finished using the burner, be sure to turn the knob to the “Off” position. This unit does not come with an auto shut-off feature.

It’s important to note that when using this appliance, provide at least 4–6 inches of air space above and on all sides for air circulation.

The cord of this unit is only three feet in length and the length is for safety reasons. You can use an extension cord with this unit. Be sure that the extension cord is out of the way while you are using the burner. Someone could trip over the cord and burn or hurt themselves.

The burner can be cleaned. See the cleaning and maintenance section below for more information.

Cuisinart Burner Tips

Below are some handy tips that should be read before using the burner for the first time.

  • Before using the burner for the first time, it should be heated up at the maximum setting for a period of 4 minutes without a pot. This will burn off any residue on the burner plates.
  • The cast-iron burner may smoke the first time it is used — this is normal, and the smoke will burn off within a few minutes.
  • This unit should not be used as a portable heater.
  • Do not leave the unit on without any pots/pans on the solid burner after the initial burn-off process.

Cleaning & Maintenance

Reasonable care of this appliance will ensure many years of service from your unit. Avoid dropping items on the burner rings and solid burners.

  1. Turn temperature control dial(s) to the OFF position.
  2. Always unplug unit from electrical outlet and allow to cool before cleaning.
  3. Never immerse unit in water or other liquids.
