THE FRYER IS STILL HOT.
Before Use
 Bringing the shortening up to frying
temperature, when not pre-melting,
should be done in two stages.
1. Check that the gas supply is turned on.
2. Check that no foreign articles are in the tank.
i.
Pre-Heating;
Light the main burners and manually
cycle the burners ‘On’/ ‘Off’ until the
shortening has liquefied. Ideally the main
burners should be cycled ‘On’ for 5
seconds and ‘Off’ for 10 seconds.
Following this procedure should allow
shortening to liquefy gradually without
scorching.
ii. Once the shortening has liquefied, it can
be brought up to fryer operating
temperature.
WARNING:
DANGER OF FIRE EXISTS IF THE OIL LEVEL IS BELOW THE MINIMUM
“LO” INDICATED LEVEL.
Filling the Tank
CORRECT LEVEL FOR FRYING MEDIUM WHEN AT
FRYING TEMPERATURE, KEEP TOPPED UP
INDICATES CORRECT FRYING MEDIUM LEVEL
NOTE:
Running burners continuously will cause shortening
in contact with the tank to overheat, resulting in
premature oil breakdown.
Never allow the
shortening to smoke while melting as this indicates
that the temperature is too high. If the shortening
starts smoking, increase the ‘Off' intervals of the
main burners.
Fig 3
NOTE:
Cobra fryers can be used with both oil and
shortening.
Lighting the Pilot Burners
1. Before filling the tank, always check that the
drain valve(s) behind the access door is closed.
A locking slide is provided on this valve and this
should always be locked in position during use.
1. With the fryer tank full of frying medium, the pilot
burners can be lit.
2. Check that the gas supply is turned on at the
mains supply.
3. Open the access door at the front of the
appliance to access the control panel.
4. Press the Pilot Ignition Button and hold
depressed.
5. At the same time hold the Flame Failure button
depressed.
6. Manually light the pilot burner until the pilot
ignites.
7. Continue holding the Pilot Ignition Button and
the Flame Failure button depressed until the
second pilot cross lights from the already lit pilot.
8. Continue holding the Pilot Ignition Button and
Flame Failure button depressed for approx. 10 to
15 seconds after igniting the second pilot burner,
then release, both pilot burners should remain
alight. If the pilot burners do not ignite, repeat
Items 1 to 8 above.
a. OIL - Carefully fill fryer tank with oil until the
'FILL-LEVEL' mark is reached. The Cobra fryer
will hold 21 litres of oil (38lbs shortening).
b. SHORTENING - Ideally shortening should be
pre-melted prior to putting it into the tank.
This is normally done in a suitable vessel on a
boiling table burner(s). The liquefied
shortening can then be poured into the tank
until it reaches the 'FILL LEVEL' mark.
 When pre-melting shortening, only heat
until the shortening is just liquefied. Do not
bring up to high temperature as handling
of hot shortening is dangerous.
 If pre-melting of shortening is not possible
then the shortening should be cut in
pieces and packed down into the tank.
8
Part 4
Operation
Turning the Fryer to the 'Pilot' or
‘Off’ Positions
Lighting the Main Burners
1. Ensure that the pilot burners are alight, by
visually checking that both pilot flames are
alight.
2. Rotate the Temperature Control Knob to the
desired temperature required.
3. The main burners will now ignite automatically
off the pilot burners.
To the ‘Pilot’ Position
a. Rotate the Temperature Control Knob to the
‘O’ position.
b. The main burners will extinguish and the ‘Pilot’
will remain alight.
To the ‘Off’ Position
a. With the Temperature Control Knob turned to
the 'O' position, depress the 'OFF' Button, the
‘Pilot’ burners will extinguish.
NOTE:
 The main burners will not light if the frying medium
temperature is above the thermostat set
temperature.
Re-Setting the Overtemp Device
Setting the Operating
Temperature
This Fryer is fitted with an overtemp device which
isolates the gas supply to the burners should the gas
control system or thermostat malfunction, thus
preventing overheating of the fryer. If the pilot fails
to ignite after several attempts, ensure that the
overtemp is checked to ensure that it has not
tripped.
1. Rotate the gas control knob to the required
temperature.
2. The temperature used for frying food is the most
important aspect of fryer operation. Incorrect
temperatures will result in poor product quality
and will reduce the life of the oil/shortening.
3. The temperature can be set from 110°C to 190°
C, although we do not recommend that any
food is cooked above 190°C.
4. To set the operating temperature simply turn the
thermostat to the desired setting.
5. Main burners will operate automatically to
maintain this temperature.
6. As a safety precaution this Cobra Fryers features
an Over-Temp control which will ‘Turn Off’ the
fryer in the event that the oil reaches over 220°C,
should there be a thermostat failure.
1. To reset the overtemp, it is not necessary to
remove the front control panel.
2. Using a small screwdriver, pass the screwdriver
through the small hole in the left hand side of the
front control panel and depress the centre of
the overtemp reset button.
3. Attempt to re-light the pilot burners as shown on
previous page.
4. Should the pilot burners still not ignite, call a
qualified service person to investigate the
problem.
Frying Guide and Care of Frying
Oils and Fats.
NOTE:
If the fryer is not being used for short periods of time,
the main burners can be turned down to a 'Standby' temperature (Approx 120°C) this will allow the
main burners to cycle 'On' and 'Off' and maintain oil
temperature just below operating temperature.
1. Prepare the food correctly. Prepare the food in
as nearly uniform pieces as possible and bring
the food up to room temperature. Ensure that
the food is free from excessive moisture and also
excessive crumbing when 'breading' is done.
2. Preheat the frying medium to the
recommended temperature for the particular
food to be cooked and no higher - specially
prepared frying mediums are recommended.
3. The frying medium should be at the correct
temperature for the food to be cooked before
lowering the food into the tank. Avoid heating
the frying medium to any higher temperature
than is recommended. Also avoid holding the
frying medium at the frying temperature when
there is no food being cooked. Any frying
medium will break down if held for long periods
at frying temperatures.
9
Part 4
Operation
4. Lower the food gradually into the hot frying
medium using a wire basket, until all the food
pieces are submerged. Avoid overloading the
basket, we recommend no more that 900g per
basket or 1800g per load. Overloading will
cause the temperature to drop so low that a
longer frying time will be needed and the foods
will become grease soaked and unattractive.
With a little experience you can determine what
amount of food may be added to the fryer
without causing an excessive drop in
temperature. If the temperature drop is
excessive, either the food is too cold or there is
too much food in the fryer. Temperatures and
cooking times quoted are based on average
size batches being used in the fryer.
5. Continue cooking until the outside of the food is
brown and crisp and the pieces are cooked
through.
6. he exact cooking time depends upon the size of
the food pieces and upon whether the food has
been pre-cooked. When in doubt, test a sample
and be sure.
7. Remove the food from the frying medium and
allow the food to drain in the basket over the
fryer.
8. Conserve the excess frying medium by letting it
drain back into the fryer. This draining should not
consume much time if the fried food is to be
served at its hot, crisp and flavoursome best.
9. Serve the food immediately after frying.
10. Deep fried foods are at their flavour peak as
soon as the frying is complete. Serve them
within a minute or two after they are taken from
the fryer. Fried foods should never be held.
IMPORTANT
Should any abnormal operation like;
- ignition problems,
- abnormal burner flame,
- burner control problems,
- partial or full loss of burner flame in normal
operation,
be noticed, the appliance requires IMMEDIATE
service by a qualified service person and shall not
be used until such service is carried out.

washed down and into the filter bag.
8. Open drain valve fully, check for any particles or
crumb residue lodged in the valve. Clean out
with a stiff nylon brush. Do not use wire brush or
metal rods as these damage the seating in the
valve and will cause valve leakage.
9. If the obstruction in the valve cannot be
removed with a brush, use a wooden probe.
10. Clean the control panel with a damp cloth
lightly moistened with a solution of mild
detergent and water. Wipe dry with a clean dry
cloth.
11. Once the daily cleaning operation is
completed, close the valve and pour the frying
medium back into the tank and continue the
days work. Straining takes less time than frying
one load of potatoes and will pay dividends in
food quality and saving of frying medium.
6. Empty the fryer and rinse thoroughly with water.
Use a 1 part vinegar to 15 parts water solution to
rinse the tank and neutralise any cleaner
residue. Use a weaker solution of up to 1 part to
25 water if this proves unsuitable for the cleaner
being used.
7. Rinse the tank thoroughly with water, drain and
dry.
8. Refill the tank with new filtered frying medium.
Weekly Cleaning
BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO MOVE THE FRYER, ENSURE THAT ALL THE
OIL HAS BEEN DRAINED FROM THE TANK.
REFER TO THE
NOTE:
If the fryer usage is very high, we recommend that
the weekly cleaning procedure is carried out on a
more frequent basis.
INFORMATION ON THE PREVIOUS PAGE ON HOW TO DRAIN THE
Stainless Steel Surfaces
a. With the tank(s) drained, cleaned and dried
as shown above, clean the exterior of the
fryer with hot water, a mild detergent solution
and a soft cloth. Note that the gas control
knobs can be removed to allow cleaning of
the front control panel.
b. Dry all components thoroughly with a dry
cloth and polish with a soft dry cloth.
c. To remove any discolouration, use an
approved stainless steel cleaner or stainless
steel wool. Always rub in the direction of the
grain.
WARNING:
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MOVE THE FRYER WHILST THE FRYER IS
FULL OF OIL.
OIL FROM THE FRYER.
Periodic Maintenance
NOTE:
All maintenance operations should only be carried
out by a qualified service person.
1. Proceed as for “Daily Cleaning” to drain and
filter the tank. Do not refill the tank with frying
medium until it has been cleaned as shown
below.
2. Fill the fryer with cold water to the normal fill level
and add a high quality commercial cleaner that
has been specifically formulated for fryers. All
purpose cleaners are not recommended.
To achieve the best results cleaning must be regular
and thorough and all controls and mechanical
parts should be checked and adjusted periodically
by a qualified service person. If any small faults
occur, have them attended to promptly. Don't wait
until they cause a complete breakdown. It is
recommended that the appliance is serviced every
6 months.
NOTE:
Never use a caustic or lye solution, as this will leave
a fat destroying film on the tank.
3. Heat the water to approximately 80-90°C.
4. Clean the fryer baskets by simply immersing
them in the cleaning solution. Allow fryer to soak
for 5-10 minutes or as directed on the cleaner
instructions. Remove the baskets and turn OFF
the main burners.
5. Scrub the baskets and fryer tank lightly, but
vigorously with a stiff nylon bristle brush to
remove any remaining deposits. DO NOT use a
wire brush, as this will scratch the sides.
