FILLING WITH OIL
Pour oil into the tank up to the
maximum level indicated
(approximately 2.5 litres of oil).
2
Place the food, which should be
as dry as possible, into the
raised basket. When frying
frozen food, avoid adding ice
particles to the hot oil. Remove
the basket from the fryer, add
the frozen food and shake the
basket to remove excess ice and
frost. The oil temperature and oil
life expectancy will be improved.
3
Lower the basket onto the
basket rest ‚.
4
Lower the lid.
5
Lower the basket to the frying
position.
•
You can observe the cooking
process by raising the lid or
looking through the viewing
window to observe progress.
6
When the food is cooked, raise
the lid, lift the basket out of the
oil, give it a shake, and place it
in it’s raised rest position for one
minute to drain.
7
Lift the basket out and shake the
fried food into a dish with oil
absorbing kitchen paper.
8
After use, disconnect from the
mains supply and allow to cool.
Wipe any spilt oil from the fryer
body.
•
You can store the basket in the
oil.
Lightly smear the inside of the
viewing window with the oil to
inhibit any condensation which
could reduce visibility.
•
Use good quality liquid
vegetable oil, see getting the
best from your fryer on page 6.
COOKING
WARNING: Never operate
the fryer without oil in the
bowl.
1
Lower the basket and close the
lid.
2
Plug into the mains and switch
the power on at the socket and
switch on the fryer to position I.
3
The red power light and orange
temperature light will illuminate.
4
Set the variable temperature
control to the required setting,
see ‘frying times and
temperature section’.
5
The fryer is now pre-heating the
oil, the orange temperature light
may go out and come back on
once or twice during pre-heat.
After approximately 15 minutes,
the oil will be at the correct
temperature.
6
Lift the lid.
•
Do not over fill the basket when
frying, the food must be covered
with the bubbling hot oil.
There are two methods of
cooking in your fryer; one
general method for most food
types and another for home
battered products.
General cooking
method (with the basket)
1
5
Place the basket in the raised
position. The basket should
always be in the raised position
when it is to be filled with food.
Cooking homebattered foods (with the
basket in lowered position)
This method allows for the fact
that if wet batter is placed in the
basket prior to cooking, the food
may stick.
1
Leave the basket in the down
position.
2
Coat the raw food in the batter
and allow it to drain slightly to
get rid of the excess coating.
3
Very carefully, slowly lower the
coated food into the hot oil,
using a suitable implement or
tongs. This allows the batter to
become solid and prevents it
sealing to the mesh of the
basket.

H
Page 6
WARNING: Take care as the
oil may spit as the food is
added.
•
Select your cooking utensils
with care. Do not use utensils
that may melt. Metal utensils
become hot and therefore
should have insulated handles.
When using metal utensils, take
care not to damage the nonstick coating of the bowl.
•
All foodstuffs contain moisture.
When lowered into the hot oil,
the water turns to steam. Most
of the steam escapes
harmlessly through the lid vent,
but trapped steam may escape
when opening the lid - so care is
needed.
GETTING THE BEST
FROM YOUR FRYER
Oil
•
Always ensure that you use
good quality oil for deep frying.
We recommend liquid vegetable
oils, alternatively use corn,
groundnut or rapeseed oil. Avoid
mixing oils of different types and
quality.
•
Solid fat (lard) and solid oil can
be used, this should be first
melted in a pan until softened,
then carefully transferred into
the fryer bowl.
I
•
Change the oil when it becomes
brown or cloudy in colour,
usually after frying 15 times. This
will be the appropriate time to
change the filter.
•
IMPORTANT: Do not switch the
fryer on until the fryer bowl is
filled with oil or solid oil or lard.
J
Chips
•
Old potatoes are ideal for
making chips. Your chips should
be evenly sized so that they
cook evenly. They should be
rinsed in a colander under a
cold tap and dried using a
kitchen towel or absorbent
paper. For best results, fry your
chips for 10-12 minutes, shaking
the basket at intervals to ensure
chips get an overall browning.
•
For best results, we recommend
no more than 800g of frozen
chips or 1000g of fresh chips
are fried.
Cooking
•
•
Pieces of food should be of the
same size and thickness.
•
As a general guide, pre-cooked
foods need a higher cooking
temperature than raw foods.
•
Do not overload the basket as it
may cause a drop of
temperature that may leave the
food greasy.
•
•
6
Your food must always be
completely dry in order to avoid
overflowing, to prolong the use
of the oil and to give a crisper
finish to the food.
Emptying and
cleaning
WARNING: Cleaning should
only be carried out with the
plug removed from the
socket. The fryer should
have completely cooled.
Allow 3 hours for cooling.
1
Remove the lid.
2
Remove the basket.
3
Cook your food thoroughly.
Remember that your food may
begin to turn golden brown
before it is cooked through.
Take the oil storage container
and unscrew the cap, ensuring
the filter is in place H.
4
Avoid leaving food to drain for
too long in the basket as the
food may become soft and lose
it’s crunchiness.
Lift out the bowl I and carefully
pour the oil from the corner of
the tank J, into the oil storage
container.
5
Wash the lid, basket, handle and
the inside of the tank by hand
with hot soapy water.
