SPECIAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
• A short power supply cord is provided to
reduce the risk resulting from becoming
entangled in or tripping over a longer
cord. An extension cord (or longer
detachable cord) is not recommended
for use with deep fryers.
• Never plug in the control panel before it
is installed in the body of the fryer with
the heating element inside the oil
container.
• Do not immerse the control panel and
heating element in water.
• When opening the lid after frying, first
release the lid by pushing the latch with
your finger, then wait a moment to allow
the steam inside to escape before
opening fully.
• To avoid a circuit overload, do not
operate another high wattage appliance
on the same circuit.
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce
the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one
way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit,
contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.

Warning: If you try to melt the solidified
fat in the oil container, there is a risk of
warm melted fat suddenly sputtering from
below through the still solid top layer of fat.
Therefore use only the following procedure:

temperature. If the fat is very cold, there
is a greater risk of splashing.
• Using a fork, carefully make some holes
in the fat. Make sure the lid is securely
closed while fat is melting. Press the

burns, never touch any metal parts on the
deep fryer because they may be hot.
• Press the power button and the
power off.
• Unplug the main cord from the wall
socket.
• Lift up the lid cover slowly and wait to
allow steam to escape before
opening the lid cover completely.
• Lift up the frying basket by the
handle. Place it on the oil container
and allow the food to drain for a
minute.
• Once the oil has drained from the
frying basket, the basket may be
lifted off and the food served.
Filling the Frying Basket
• Do not fill the frying basket when it is
immersed in oil.
• Place the food in the frying basket. Do
not overfill it and never exceed the
maximum quantities. For optimum
results and shorter frying time, basket
should be only 1/2 full.
• The basket has approximately 1.5 lb.
food capacity. It will hold 4-5
average size pieces of chicken.
• Do not fill the basket higher than the
MAX line on the basket with frozen
food.
Warning: When frying foods, remove
the frying basket from the deep fryer before
filling with frozen food because oil will
spatter and cause burns.
Warning:
Always let the deep fryer
cool completely (approximately 2 hours)
before cleaning or storing. Never carry
or move the deep fryer with hot oil inside.
Frying Tips
Caution: When frying frozen foods such
as French Fries, you should not exceed
1.25 Lb. (564 gr.) or less. Clean off any ice
from frozen food prior to frying. Failure to do
so may cause fryer to overflow when food is
placed in oil.
Frying Food
• Always use the frying basket to fry food.
• Always close the lid cover during frying.
• When the oil is pre-heated, ready
indicator light will come on it indicating
that the desired temperature is reached.
• Slowly lower the frying basket into the
hot oil. Lowering the frying basket too
quickly can result in the oil overflowing
and splashing.
• Replace the lid carefully.
• It is normal for steam to escape through
the sides of the lid while frying.
• Avoid standing too close to the deep
fryer while it is working.
Warning: When opening the lid cover
after frying, lift up the lid slightly, then wait
to allow steam to escape before opening
the lid completely. Keep face away from
unit to avoid burns caused by escaping
steam.

• Do not mix different oils or new and old
oil together.
• Replace oil regularly. In general, oil
will be tainted fast when frying food
containing a lot of protein, (such as
poultry, meat and fish). When oil is
used mainly to fry potatoes and is
filtered after each use, it can be used
up to 8 to 10 times, but do not use the
same oil for more than 6 months.
• Always replace all oil as soon as it
starts foaming when heated or when
color becomes dark or when it has a
rancid smell or taste or becomes
syrupy.
• Make sure that the food to be fried is
dry.
• Remove loose ice from frozen food
before frying.
• To cook evenly, pieces should be the
same size and thickness.
• Thicker pieces will take longer to cook.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS cont.
The following cooking times reflect only the approximate time needed to fry one
basket 1/2 full. The exact time may be different depending on actual quantity,
personal cooking preferences, size and thickness of pieces, etc...

Filtering & Changing The Oil
• Make sure the deep fryer is unplugged
and the oil has cooled before cleaning
or storing the deep fryer.
• The oil does not need to be changed
after each use. In general, the oil will
be tainted rather quickly when frying
food containing a lot of protein (such
as poultry, meat or fish). When oil is
mainly used to fry potatoes and is
filtered after each use, it can be used 8
to 10 times. However, do not use the
same oil for longer than 6 months.
• To filter the oil first make sure the oil
has cooled and then empty the oil from
the oil container into another container
or bottle. Fig. 4
Wash and dry the oil container and

Cleaning Instructions
Warning:
Your Bravetti Platinum Pro Deep Fryer
has been specifically designed with your
safety in mind. Bravetti Platinum Pro
has incorporated a unique detachable
power supply cord. This power supply
cord cord is designed to “Break Away”
from the fryer body in the event that the
supply cord is inadvertently pulled. This
is intended to prevent the tipping of the
appliance and hazardous spillage of hot
oil.
The female receptacle portion of the
power supply cord is permanently
attached to the rear of the the control
panel. To connect the male power cord
plug to the female receptacle on the
appliance, orient the male plug so that it
mates with the female receptacle. The
male plug can only be inserted one way.
If the male plug will not go into the
receptacle on the appliance, rotate the
male plug 180° and insert again.
IMPORTANT: Should the male plug
become detached from the appliance
during use, it is important to:
1. Unplug the power cord from the wall
outlet.
2. Turn off the appliance at the control
panel.
3. Re-attach the power cord to the
appliance.
4. Re-connect to power outlet.
5. Turn the appliance back on.

IMPORTANT
Always remove the plug
from the wall socket before cleaning.
Allow the deep fryer and the oil to cool
completely (approximately 2 hours)
before cleaning. Never immerse the
control panel, cord or plug in water or
Helpful Hints
any other liquid.
• Follow the cleaning instructions on
page 4. (Before using for the First
Time)
• Never immerse the control panel, cord
or plug in water or any other liquid.
• Do not place the control panel, cord or
plug in the dishwasher.
• Clean the control panel only with a
damp cloth.
• The oil container, frying basket, lid
cover and filter can be washed in the
dishwasher.
• The body of the deep fryer can be
washed in warm soapy water. Do not
put the body of the deep fryer in the
dishwasher.
You can re-set the deep fryer to 320 degrees by simply pressing the re-set
button located just below the thermostat on the front panel.
Your deep fryer is equipped with a special Auto-Off Safety Feature. The
heating element will shut off when the timer stops.
The temperature control allows you to set the desired temperature for each
recipe. Once the temperature is achieved, the ready light will turn on. This is
the point to set your timer. Once the time has elapsed, the element will shut
off and the oil begin to cool down. If you want to do another recipe, simply
press the re-set button, set your temperature and wait for the ready light.
Once illuminated, then set the timer.
If you would like to use the fryer continuously for multiple batches, do not
set the timer. Simply set the desired temperature, wait for the ready light
and begin!
