Try eBay, as they often sell power cords that are either identical to or compatible with various appliances. Failing that, you could go to an appliance or electronics store, and ask them if they have a compatible cord. Bring your old cord, of course. Most of the time, a suitable substitute exists, just as long as you make sure that the new cord is of the same gauge, etc. For instance, I use the power cord from my old WebTV (remember those??) for my mini stereo system, and it works great. Good luck!
Do I have the manual. I have the cord and can send u a picture of the cord, if u haven't found one yet.
I've lost my manual. :(. Apparently there is no settings. No fail on my cord. Is the cooking grate submersible except for where u plug it in? Mines been packed away for a few years and I've forgotten how to use it.

Are you wanting to use these to add 'flavor' to your food?
This type of grill does not have a cover so it would be difficult to 'trap' the flavor to enhance the food.
I have used Liquid Smoke with my indoor grill and if you use it correctly it can add that outdoor grilling flavor. Just use a pastry brush (or any kind of brush) and run a little across your food.
Check it out on this link - you might like it.
There are websites that say you can use wood chips and charcoal on an electric grill, BUT, I WOULD NOT. I feel unless the company has clear directions on doing this, it would be a huge fire hazard.
You could always call the company--I don't know who made them for Betty Crocker so you can call them and ask: 1-800-446-1898 between (7:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. CT, weekdays) and then call the maker if you no longer have the book. I tired to find the book online and I could not find it.
That said, that doesn't mean you can't smoke foods without a smoker. Hubby does it here frequently (we have a smoker but he won't use it in the winter so he uses techniques in the two links I will share below). He also uses the liquid smoke that cybergrannie suggested and that works great too! It is not always easy to find where we are, though. Not sure why.
The first link is straight oven smoking (it says ribs, but he has done chicken, turkey, etc. same general rules follow your normal recipe and cooking times just follow their technique for the roaster.
This second link, he sometimes uses the combo method where he grills the food first (either outside or on the inside grill pan he has), and then finishes it with an indoor smoking in the oven:
You do need to be VERY, VERY careful when using these techniques. They always set off the smoke alarm so make sure your kitchen windows are open if you have them and keep a fan going to circulate the air. Never leave the process unattended and follow all of the prep for the chips to the letter.
The house will smell of smoke for a long time after you cook with the chips--at least our house does. It is not a bad smell, but I get tired of it after a day or too.
Just another word of warning, if anyone has nut allergies in your house do not cook with woods that were from nut trees as a safety precaution. It may not affect everyone the same way, but if he uses pecan he gets ill because he has a nut allergy. I think he only uses apple woods or mesquite. I always need to warn people about this as we had no clue it would affect him that way. Now he has to ask if ordering food from a place that smokes it and if they don't know, he has to skip it.
I'm looking for a manual for my Betty Crocker gourmet electric grill bc-1963 that I bought sometime in the 90s. I have the cord. Hopefully it's the right one. Does this model only have one setting? I haven't used it in a long time. There is no settings on this cord.
Betty Crocker has a user manual download site on the internet. Please go to the site and enter your information. You can download your manual here:
I would go on to bettycrocker.com and contact them. If they have it, they will send you a PDF or even a hard copy.

I have an old Betty Crocker Gourmet Indoor Grill. I love it. But somehow after Hurricane Rita, and trying to move I lost my power cord. I really would like to find a new one. I cannot find this grill anywhere on the net, which is telling me a lot. Can anyone help?
