This is a fire hazard.
Warning and Safety Instructions
Warning and Safety Instructions
Always ensure that food is sufficiently cooked or reheated.
Many factors will affect the overall cooking time, including the size and amount
of food, its temperature and changes to
the recipe.
Some foods may contain micro organisms which are only destroyed by thorough cooking, therefore when cooking
or reheating foods, e.g. poultry, it is particulary important that the food is fully
cooked through. If in doubt select a
longer cooking or reheating time.
It is essential to ensure that food
has been evenly and sufficiently
heated, and to check that it is thoroughly cooked, turning during cooking
if necessary.
Frying oil should be changed after
approx. 6 to 10 batches of food
have been cooked.
Oil containing impurities is liable to
catch light.
Change the oil,
when . . .
. . . it becomes very dark and thick.
. . . it smells unpleasant and foams.
. . . the oil begins to smoke at a temperature of 170°C or less.
Do not fill hot oil into plastic containers.
The plastic will melt.
To protect the environment used
cooking oils and fats should be disposed of with the household waste
after they have cooled down.
Oils and fats. . .
. . . should not be disposed of down
the sink.
. . . they can block up the water pipes.
. . . and can damage the walls of waste
pipes.
Under no circumstances use a
steam-cleaning appliance to clean
the extractor. The steam could penetrate to live components and cause a
short circuit.
In countries which may be subject
to infestation by cockroaches or
other vermin, pay particular attention to
keeping the appliance and its surroundings in a clean condition at all times.
Any damage which might be caused
by cockroaches or other vermin will not
be covered by the appliance guarantee.
Keep these instructions in a safe
place and pass them on to any future
user.
Disposal of discarded appliances
Before disposal of an old appliance, turn off at the mains, disconnect and remove the appliance
cable at both ends and render useless.
This is intended to prevent the discarded appliance from being a hazard.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by noncompliance with safety instructions.

Before using for the first time
Before using for the first time
Clean the deep fat fryer before using
for the first time.
Fill the oil reservoir with approx. 5 l of
water and add a little washing up liquid.
Turn the control in a clockwise direction to 130°C and bring the water to
the boil. When it has started to boil
turn the control back to ”0“.
Drain the water through the drain
tap into a heat tolerant container.
Rinse the oil reservoir out with hot water.
Remember to close the drain tap.
Raise the heater element and dry the
oil reservoir with a clean cloth.
8
Frying
Frying
To fry, remove lid and fill the oil reservoir to the level mark with 3 litres of
clean vegetable oil or frying fat.
The reservoir will take a maximum
of 4 litres of fat.
Fat should be cut up into small
pieces first.
When re-using fat which has solidified
in the reservoir, make a hole in the solid
fat as far as the element.
When the temperature sinks below
the level set, the heater elements
heat up again and the indicator light
comes on again.
This process is repeated until the fryer
is switched off.
Check the oil level
Check the oil level before adding the
food to be fried. The correct oil level is
between the two marks at the back of
the reservoir.
Melt at a temperature of 100°C.
When all the fat has melted, set at
the correct temperature.
Never heat up the fryer without any
fat in it and only ever use with the
lid removed.
Switching the fryer on
Turn the control clockwise as far as
it will go and then turn it back again.
Do not force it as otherwise the control will break.
Turn the control knob to the required
temperature.
The white indicator light =
illuminates to show that the fryer is in
operation.
Correct procedure
Before frying, wipe dry any damp
food with a cloth.
The higher the water content in the
food, the greater the danger of the
fat frothing over.
Set the required temperature (see
chart on page 10).
When the yellow light goes out, lower
the basket containing the food into
the fat.
If the fat froths a lot, briefly remove
the food from the fryer.
Never salt food over the oil.
The yellow indicator light =
illuminates when the fryer is heating
up.
The yellow indicator light goes out
. . . when the set temperature has
been reached.

Frying
Frying
After frying
When the food is ready
remove the basket and lightly shake
to remove superfluous oil.
In order to drain the fried food, the
frying basket can be suspended
from the bracket support of the heating element hinge.
Turn the control back to ”0“.
The indicator lights go out.
Only replace the lid when the oil or
fat has cooled.
The frying basket has a handle which
can be folded away when not in use:
press the sides of the handle
together and fold into the basket.
The handle can be removed for
cleaning the frying basket.
Draining fat away
Frying oil can normally be used for approx. 6-10 batches. Between each
use, the oil should be poured through a
metal sieve lined with kitchen paper, as
oil containing impurities is liable to
catch light.
There is a drain tap under the base of
the oil reservoir for draining away the
oil and for draining away any water
which has collected in the cold oil zone.
Before draining off solid fat, turn the
selector to the highest temperature
to just liquefy the fat.
Be careful
not to burn yourself with oil or fat
that is still hot.
Let hot oil cool down to a safe level,
but still remain liquid before draining.
Place a suitable container able to
withstand heat under the drain tap.
Open the tap by turning the lever
90° to the right.
To close the tap turn the lever as far
as possible to the left.

Your fryer is fitted with a safety cut-out
which automatically switches it off if:
– the oil reservoir is not filled to at least
the lower level indicator.
– the fryer is switched on when empty.
– the fryer is switched on when the
heating element has been raised
(e.g. for cleaning).
The fryer has cut out automatically
when neither the heating indicator light
nor the operating indicator light is on
