risk of burning themselves.
6
To prevent the risk of children
burning themselves with potentially
hot fat or oil please make sure that they
cannot access the drain tap and open
it.
Packaging, e.g. cling film,
polystyrene and plastic wrappings
must be kept out of the reach of babies
and young children. Danger of
suffocation. Dispose of or recycle all
packaging safely as soon as possible.
Old appliances must be
disconnected from the power
supply, any plug rendered useless and
the cable cut off directly behind the
appliance to ensure it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
Warning and Safety instructions
Protecting the appliance from
damage
Protection from burning and
scalding
Do not drop anything on the glass
surface. Even a light object could
cause damage in certain
circumstances.
Never leave the appliance
unattended when using it.
Overheated oil can catch fire and could
even set the cooker hood on fire.
Never use open flames near the
appliance, e.g. candles or lighters. Fire
hazard!
Do not use a steam cleaner to
clean this appliance. The steam
could reach electrical components and
cause a short circuit. Pressurised
steam could also cause permanent
damage to the surface and to other
components, for which the
manufacturer cannot accept liability.
In countries where there are areas
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 may be caused by
cockroaches and other vermin will not
be covered by the appliance

Warning and Safety instructions
Appliance faults
Further safety notes
In the event of damage or a defect,
switch off the appliance immediately. Disconnect completely from the
electricity supply. If the appliance has
not yet been fully installed, the
electricity cable must be disconnected
from the supply point. If connected via
a plug and socket, switch off at the
socket and withdraw the plug. Contact
the Service Department.
Do not reconnect the appliance to the
mains electricity supply until after it has
been repaired.
When using an electric socket near
the appliance, care should be
taken that the cable of the electrical
appliance does not come into contact
with the hot appliance. The insulation
on the cable could become damaged,
giving rise to an electric shock hazard.
If there is any damage to the glass
surface the appliance must be
disconnected from the mains electricity
supply immediately and not used until it
has been repaired. Danger of electric
shock.
Repairs must only be carried out
by a suitably qualified and
competent person. Repairs and other
work by unqualified persons could be
very dangerous and could damage the
appliance. The manufacturer cannot be
held liable for unauthorised work. Never
open the housing of the appliance.
While the appliance is under
guarantee, repairs should only be
undertaken by a service technician
authorised by the manufacturer.
Otherwise the guarantee is invalidated.
8
Always ensure that food is
sufficiently cooked or reheated.
Many factors will affect the overall
cooking time, including the size and
amount of food and its temperature.
Some foods may contain
micro-organisms which are only
destroyed by thorough cooking;
therefore when cooking or reheating
foods such as poultry, it is particularly
important that the food is completely
cooked through. If in doubt, select a
longer cooking or reheating time.
Never use plastic containers for hot
fat. These melt at high
temperatures.
Do not dispose of used cooking oil
down the sink. It can damage
pipework and cause blockages in the
water pipes.
Dispose of it safely with your household
waste or ask your local authority about
disposal schemes in your area.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.
Caring for the environment
Disposal of packing material
Disposal of your old appliance
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain materials which, if
handled or disposed of incorrectly,
could be potentially hazardous to
human health and to the environment.
They are, however, essential for the
correct functioning of your appliance.
Please do not therefore dispose of your
old appliance with your household
waste.
Packaging, e.g. cling film, polystyrene
and plastic wrappings must be kept out
of the reach of babies and young
children. Danger of suffocation.
Dispose of or recycle all packaging
materials as soon as possible.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre and ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
It should be unplugged or
disconnected from the mains electricity
supply by a competent person. The

Before using for the first time
General notes
Please stick the extra data plate for the
appliance supplied with this
documentation in the space provided in
the "After sales service" section of this
booklet.
10
Before using for the first time
Cleaning and heating up for
the first time
Before using the fryer for the first time
clean it as follows:
^ Fill the oil reservoir with approx. 4
litres of water and add a little
washing up liquid. Ensure that the
water level is not higher than the
maximum level indicator which is
marked at the back of the reservoir.
Metal components have a protective
coating which may give off a slight
smell when heated up for the first time.
The smell and any vapours will
dissipate after a short time and do not
indicate a faulty connection or
appliance.
^ Turn the control in a clockwise
direction to 130 °C and bring the water to the boil.
^ When the water has started to boil,
switch off the fryer by turning the
control back anti-clockwise to "0".
Empty the water through the drain
tap into a heat resistant container
(see "After frying").
^ Rinse the oil reservoir out with hot
water.
^ Close the drain tap, raise the heating
element and dry the reservoir with a
clean cloth.
^ Clean all other appliance surfaces
with a damp cloth only, and then wipe
dry.
11
Using the fryer
Switching on and off
Before frying
To switch the fryer on, turn the control
in a clockwise direction a. To switch
off, turn the control anti-clockwise b
to "0".
Before frying make sure that the oil
reservoir has been filled with enough
frying oil or fat (min. 3 litres / 3 kg, max.
4 litres / 4 kg).
You cannot turn the control to "0" by
turning it past 200 °C.
Only use oil / fat which is suitable for
frying in and which can be heated to
a high temperature.
Never mix different types of Oil / fat
together.
Proceed as follows:
^ Make sure the drain tap is closed.
^ Fill the oil reservoir with oil / fat. Solid
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.
This allows any water which has
gathered under the fat to evaporate.
When the appliance is switched on, the
temperature indicator light g and the
operating indicator light h come on.
The temperature indicator light tacts on
and off in conjunction with the heating
element.
Only operate the fryer without the lid.
Never switch it on when it is empty
or when the heating element is
raised up.
12
^ Turn the control to 100 °C and wait
until the fat has melted.
^ When all the fat has melted check the
level in the reservoir. This needs to be
between the minimum and maximum
level indicators at the back of the
reservoir.
Using the fryer
Frying
Proceed as follows:
^ Set the frying temperature required
(see chart) and wait until the
temperature indicator light goes out
for the first time. The oil has now
reached the set temperature.
^ Carefully lower the frying basket
containing the food to be fried into
the hot oil. If the oil froths a lot, lift the
basket out of the oil briefly and then
slowly lower it into the hot fat again.
^ When the food is cooked, lift the
basket out of the hot oil. Shake the
basket a little to remove any excess
oil, and then hang it on its support.
Do not leave food suspended over the
reservoir for too long as steam from the
oil can cause the food to lose its
crispness. Finally, place the food onto
kitchen paper towel to soak up any
remaining excess oil.
Warning. Whilst frying food make
sure you to not touch the hot oil.
Protect you hands in particular, for
instance by wearing heat resistant
oven gloves.
Blanching
It is also possible to use this appliance
for blanching vegetables by using water instead of oil or fat.

Using the fryer
Frying tips
Handling and preparing food
correctly is essential for maintaining
good health. Food should be fried
until it is golden brown. Do not let it
get too dark.
Never add salt to food in hot fat. This
could cause the fat to boil over.
– The oil or fat needs to be hot enough
to seal the food quickly. If the
temperature is too low the food will
absorb too much fat, making it
difficult to digest.
It is important to wait until the
temperature indicator goes out
(which means the set temperature
has been reached), before adding
food to the fryer.
– Best results are achieved by keeping
to the temperature guidelines given
in the chart. Only use temperatures
above 170 °C where absolutely
necessary (e.g. for fish and meat
which has not been coated in
breadcrumbs or pastry).
– When frying deep frozen products
use the lowest temperature quoted
on the manufacturer’s packaging.
16
– Keep frying times as short as
possible.
– Use the correct ratio of food to fat.
This should be between 1:10 and
1:15. For example with a minimum fill
of 3 litres of oil you can cook about
300 g of frozen chips. Food will get
too hot if you use too much oil. If you
try and fry too much food at once the
oil will cool down too much.
– Heating the oil for too long will speed
up its deterioration rate.
– Food should be as dry as possible
for frying. Moisture can cause
frothing. Damp food should be dried
using paper towel. Remove any
excess ice and frost from deep
frozen food.
– Lower the frying basket slowly so
that the oil does not froth over.
– Rinsing freshly cut potatoes under
running water and then drying them
thoroughly with kitchen paper towel
will prevent them sticking together.
– Items containing yeast should be
placed in the fat with the risen side
downwards and turned over half way
through cooking.
– Never season food before frying it.
Salt, seasoning, icing sugar, etc.
should be added after the food has
been removed from the basket and
drained of excess fat.
Using the fryer
After frying
Switch the fryer off and filter the oil. This
not only removes impurities which can
affect the taste of the food, but will help
the oil last longer.
Proceed as follows:
^ Allow the oil to cool down, but not to
solidify.
If it has solidified it can be melted by
heating the fryer up to 100 °C.
^ Place a heat resistant container of a
suitable size, e.g. a metal pan,
beneath the drain tap under the
appliance.
^ Open the drain tap by turning it
anti-clockwise a as far as it will go.
^ After the oil has drained out, close
the tap by turning it clockwise b as
far as it will go. Check that you
cannot turn it any further.
^ Filter the oil by pouring it through
kitchen paper or a metal sieve lined
with kitchen or filter paper and store it
in a closed heat-resistant container
until it is needed again.
Make sure that the drain tap under
the appliance is always easy to
access for draining.
Make sure the oil has cooled down
sufficiently before draining it. If it is
too hot there is a risk of burning and
scalding.
Make sure the container you use for
draining the oil into is heat-resistant
and cannot melt.
After using the fryer do not replace
the lid until the appliance has cooled
down.
The oil must be replaced if it
– is very dark and thick
– smells unpleasant and froths
– begins to smoke at a temperature of
170 °C or less.
17
Using the fryer
Safety cut-out switch
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 temperature indicator
light nor the operating indicator light is
on and the oil is no longer being
heated.
18
^ Turn the control to "0" and wait until
the heating element has cooled
down.
^ Rectify whatever has caused the
automatic cut-out.
^ Press the pin (see arrow) which is on
the left rear underside of the fryer in
firmly. The fryer can now be used
again.
Cleaning and care
General notes
Clean the appliance regularly,
preferably after each use. Allow the
appliance to cool down to a safe
temperature before cleaning.
Do not use a steam cleaner to clean
this appliance. The steam could
reach the electrical components and
cause a short circuit. Pressurised
steam could also cause permanent
damage to the surface and to
components for which the
manufacturer cannot accept liability.
Do not use any sharp objects which
could damage the seal between the
glass surface and the surrounding
frame and between the frame and
the worktop.
Do not use any of the following as
they can damage the surface:
cleaning agents containing sand,
soda, alkalines, acids or chlorides,
grill and oven sprays, dishwasher
cleaner, stain or rust removers,
scouring agents or cream cleaners,
abrasive sponges and brushes.
When using cleaning agents for
stainless steel and glass surfaces
you must follow the manufacturers
instructions on the packaging.
Important: Do not use stainless steel
cleaning agents inside the oil
reservoir!
Always dry the appliance thoroughly
with a soft cloth after cleaning it with
water or a damp cloth. This prevents
a build-up of limescale deposits.
E-Cloth
A microfibre "E-Cloth" is available from
the Miele UK Spare Parts Department,
which is suitable for cleaning surfaces
such as stainless steel, glass, plastic
and chrome without the use of
chemicals.
19
Cleaning and care
Frying basket
Oil reservoir
After each use, clean the frying basket
by hand with hot water and a little
washing up liquid and then dry it
thoroughly. It is best to soak stubborn
soiling before cleaning. The handle can
be removed for cleaning.
^ Drain the oil out of the reservoir
before cleaning (see "After frying").
Then raise the heating element.
The frying basket must not be
washed in a dishwasher.
^ Use kitchen paper towel to remove
any large particles.
^ Fill the reservoir to the maximum
mark with a solution of hot water and
washing up liquid and wash out
thoroughly.
^ Drain the suds solution into a suitable
container and then clean the drain
outlet with a bottle brush. Finally rinse
the reservoir out with hot water and
and then dry both the reservoir and
the drain outlet thoroughly.
Do not use cleaning agents for
stainless steel in the oil reservoir.
20
Cleaning and care
Stainless steel surround
Glass control panel
Clean the stainless steel surround with
hot water and a little washing up liquid
applied with a soft sponge. Wipe dry
using a soft cloth. Soak stubborn soiling
first to loosen it.
Clean the glass surface and control
with a damp cloth only, and then wipe
dry with a soft cloth.
The stainless steel surround can be
cleaned using a Miele E-Cloth or a
proprietary non-abrasive cleaning
agent designed specifically for use on
stainless steel.
To help prevent re-soiling, a proprietary
conditioning agent for stainless steel,
such as Neoblank (available from the
Miele Spare Parts Department) can also
be used.
Follow the manufacturer's instructions
on the label and apply sparingly with an
even pressure following the direction of
the grain.
If wished, you can use a few drops of a
proprietary glass cleaning agent
afterwards. Please follow the
manufacturer’s instructions.
Lid
Clean the lid with hot water and a little
washing up liquid applied with a soft
sponge, and then wipe dry with a soft
cloth. Note: Please take care when
cleaning the lid as it scratches easily.
