The DF12 Mug Press digital control has 3 settings – an idle temperature, operating temperature and timer. You can set the idle temperature the same as the operating temperature if you prefer (with a safety mug in place to protect the blanket) or set the idle temperature low (say 110 degrees) and the operating temperature at 170 degrees.
The mug press should NOT be operated at temperatures above 120 degrees without a mug in place. Once the idle temp has been reached the unit beeps every second or so to let you know it is idling. Now you simply press the start/stop button on the right of the panel to start the heating up process. Once the operating temperature has been reached the timer starts to count down. The press emits a continuous tone when the cooking time has been reached. Simply press the start/stop button again and the unit returns to the idle temp ready for the next mug.
The DF12 Mug Press comes not only with the standard 11oz blanket, but also the thicker 6oz blanket. This blanket is perfect for pressing smaller or thinner mugs, such as espresso cups or bone china mugs. No more silicon sheets to bulk out your blanket!
This mug press is calibrated to work in Celsius and we recommend the idle temperature to be set to 110C and the operating temperature of 170C for a time of 140 seconds.
Mug blanket warranty is 3 months or 500 mugs whichever occurs sooner. Replacement blankets are available.
