Your new airfryer allows you to prepare your favorite ingredients and snacks
in a healthier way.
The airfryer uses hot air in combination with high-speed air circulation
(Rapid Air) and a top grill to prepare a variety of tasty dishes in a healthy,
fast and easy way. Your ingredients are heated from all sides at once and
there is no need to add oil to most of the ingredients.

Before first use
1Remove all packaging material.
2Remove any stickers or labels from the appliance.
3Thoroughly clean the basket, the pan and the divider with hot
water, some dishwashing liquid and a non-abrasive sponge.
Note:You can also clean these parts in the dishwasher.
4Wipe the inside and outside of the appliance with a moist cloth.
This is an airfryer that works on hot air. Do not fill the pan with oil or
frying fat.
Preparing for use
1Place the appliance on a stable, horizontal and level surface.
Do not place the appliance on non-heat-resistant surfaces.
2Place the basket in the pan properly (Fig. 2).
3Pull the power cord out of the cord storage compartment in the
bottom of the appliance.
Do not fill the pan with oil or any other liquid.
Do not put anything on top of the appliance. This disrupts the airflow and
affects the hot air frying result.
Using the appliance
The airfryer can prepare a large range of ingredients. The recipe booklet
included helps you get to know the appliance. You can find more recipes at
Hot air frying
1Put the power plug in a grounded wall outlet.
2Carefully pull the pan out of the airfryer (Fig. 3).
3Put the ingredients in the basket (Fig. 4).
Note: Never fill the basket beyond the MAX indication or exceed the amount
indicated in the table (see section ‘Settings’ in this chapter), as this could affect
the quality of the end result.
Tip: Use the divider to separate ingredients when you want to prepare different
ingredients at the same time. Place the divider in the basket and fill up each
side of the basket with the ingredients. Please note that the maximum amount
of each of the ingredients is half of the normal amount (Fig. 5).
4Slide the pan back into the airfryer (Fig. 6).
Never use the pan without the basket in it.
Caution: Do not touch the pan during and some time after use, as it gets
very hot. Only hold the pan by the basket handle.
5Turn the temperature control knob clockwise to the required
temperature. See section ‘Settings’ in this chapter to determine the
right temperature (Fig. 7).
Note: If you want to prepare different ingredients at the same time, make sure
you check the preparation time and the temperature required for the different
ingredients before you start to prepare them simultaneously. Home-made fries
and drumsticks, for example, can be prepared simultaneously because they
require the same settings.
6Determine the required preparation time for the ingredient (see
section ‘Settings’ in this chapter).  
7To turn on the appliance, turn the timer knob to the
required preparation time (Fig. 8).
Add 3 minutes to the preparation time when the appliance is cold.
Note: If you want, you can also let the appliance preheat without any
ingredients inside. In that case, turn the timer knob to more than 3 minutes.
Then fill the basket and turn the timer knob to the required preparation time. 
,, The power-on indicator goes on (Fig. 9).
,, The timer starts counting down the set preparation time.
,, Excess oil from the ingredients is collected on the bottom of the pan.
8Some ingredients require shaking halfway through the preparation
time (see section ‘Settings’ in this chapter). To shake the ingredients,
pull the pan out of the appliance by the handle and shake it. Then slide
the pan back into the airfryer (Fig. 10).
Caution: Do not press the basket release button during shaking (Fig. 11).
Tip:To reduce the weight, you can remove the basket from the pan and shake
the basket only.To do so, pull the pan out of the appliance, place it on a heatresistant surface and press the basket release button.
Tip: If you set the timer to half the preparation time, you hear the timer bell
when you have to shake the ingredients. However, this means that you have to
set the timer again to the remaining preparation time after shaking.
9When you hear the timer bell, the set preparation time has elapsed.
Pull the pan out of the appliance and place it on a heat-resistant surface.
Note:You can also turn off the appliance manually.To do this, turn the timer
control knob to 0 (Fig. 12).
10Check if the ingredients are ready.
If the ingredients are not ready yet, simply slide the pan back into the
appliance and set the timer to a few extra minutes.
11To remove small ingredients (e.g. fries), press the basket release
button (C) and lift the basket out of the pan (E). (Fig. 13)
Do not turn the basket upside down with the pan still attached to it,
as any excess oil that has collected on the bottom of the pan will leak
onto the ingredients.
After hot air frying, the pan and the ingredients are hot. Depending on
the type of ingredients in the airfryer, steam may escape from the pan.
12Empty the basket into a bowl or onto a plate.  (Fig. 14)
Tip:To remove large or fragile ingredients, use a pair of tongs to lift the
ingredients out of the basket (Fig. 15).
13When a batch of ingredients is ready, the airfryer is instantly ready
for preparing another batch. 
The table below helps you to select the basic settings for the ingredients
you want to prepare.
Note: Keep in mind that these settings are indications. As ingredients differ in
origin, size, shape as well as brand, we cannot guarantee the best setting for
your ingredients.
Because the Rapid Air technology instantly reheats the air inside the
appliance, pulling the pan briefly out of the appliance during hot air
frying barely disturbs the process.
-- Smaller ingredients usually require a slightly shorter preparation time
than larger ingredients.
-- A larger amount of ingredients only requires a slightly longer
preparation time, a smaller amount of ingredients only requires a slightly
shorter preparation time.
-- Shaking smaller ingredients halfway through the preparation time
optimizes the end result and can help prevent unevenly fried ingredients.
-- Add some oil to fresh potatoes for a crispy result. Fry your ingredients
in the airfryer within a few minutes after you added the oil.
-- Do not prepare extremely greasy ingredients such as sausages in the airfryer.
-- Snacks that can be prepared in an oven can also be prepared in the airfryer.
-- The optimal amount for preparing crispy fries is 1lb/0.45kg.
-- Use pre-made dough to prepare filled snacks quickly and easily. Pre-made
dough also requires a shorter preparation time than home-made dough.
-- You can also use the airfryer to reheat ingredients. To reheat ingredients,
set the temperature to 300°F for up to 10 minutes.
-- Make sure the ingredients that come out of this appliance have a light to
medium brown color instead of a dark brown color. Remove burnt food
remnants. Do not fry fresh potatoes at a temperature above 356°F to
minimize the production of acrylamide.

Making home-made fries
For the best results, we advise to use pre-baked (e.g. frozen) fries. If you
want to make home-made fries, follow the steps below.
1Peel the potatoes and cut them into sticks.
2Soak the potato sticks in a bowl for at least 30 minutes, take them
out and dry them with paper towel.
3Pour ½ tablespoon of olive oil in a bowl, put the sticks on top and
mix until the sticks are coated with oil.
4Remove the sticks from the bowl with your fingers or a kitchen
utensil so that excess oil stays behind in the bowl. Put the sticks in
the basket. 
Note: Do not tilt the bowl to put all the sticks in the basket in one go, to prevent
excess oil from ending up on the bottom of the pan.
5Fry the potato sticks according to the instructions in this chapter.
Clean the appliance after every use.
The pan, basket, divider and the inside of the appliance have a non-stick
coating. Do not use metal kitchen utensils or abrasive cleaning materials
to clean them, as this may damage the non-stick coating.
1Remove the power plug from the wall outlet, turn timer control knob
to 0 and let the appliance cool down.
Note: Remove the pan to let the airfryer cool down more quickly.
2Wipe the outside of the appliance with a moist cloth.
3Clean the pan, divider and basket with hot water, some dishwashing
liquid and a non-abrasive sponge.
You can use a degreasing liquid to remove any remaining dirt.
Note:The pan, divider and basket are dishwasher-safe.
Tip: If dirt sticks to the basket, or the bottom of the pan, fill the pan with hot
water with some dishwashing liquid. Put the basket in the pan and let the pan
and the basket soak for approximately 10 minutes.
