PREPARING YOUR FRYER FOR USE
HOW TO USE YOUR DEEP FRYER
Before fryer is used for the first time; remove all packaging materials including
plastic bag covering Fryer Basket.
Make sure fryer is unplugged. Wash the Frying Basket and Removable Oil Reservoir
in hot soapy water. Gently wipe the Heating Element with a damp cloth. Dry all
parts thoroughly. Your fryer is now ready to use.
CAUTION: Do not immerse fryer, cord, plugs or Control Panel Assembly in water.
NOTE: Never turn on the fryer with an empty Oil Reservoir. Always use your fryer
on a flat, heat resistant surface.
1. Attach magnetic end of Break-away cord assembly directly
to the fryer socket (See Fig. 2). This should be done prior to
plugging the cord into the wall outlet. The magnetic end
of the cord is designed to only go on one way. Be sure the
side stating "THIS SIDE UP" is facing up.
2. Unlock Lid by pressing the Open Lid button.
3. To remove Frying Basket, pull Basket Handle up until it
clicks into the horizontal position.
Fig. 2
4. Pour cooking oil into Oil Reservoir until it reaches between
“MIN” and “MAX” marks inside reservoir. DO NOT OVER OR
UNDER FILL.
5. Replace Frying Basket and close Lid.
6. Make sure that fryer is off and insert plug into 120 volts AC outlet. To turn fryer
on, flip the Metal Toggle Switch to ON position. The Power Indicator Light will
illuminate. Turn Temperature Control Knob to desired temperature. The Ready
Light will illuminate when the oil has reached the preset temperature.
7. After oil has been preheated, open Lid and lift Frying Basket into upper position
by lifting handle up until it clicks into the horizontal position.
8. Place food inside Frying Basket. Do not stack food.
9. Close lid until it snaps into place. Lower the Frying Basket into the oil by
pressing the Handle Release Button.
CAUTION: Always close the Lid before immersing food in oil. Do not immerse or
drain food with the lid removed or open.
10. For cooking times, see fry chart on page 7 or use the recommended times in
your recipe.
11. Once the food reaches desired brownness, pull up the Handle until it clicks into
the horizontal position. To remove excess grease and retain crispness, let food
drain in Frying Basket at least 10-20 seconds. Open Lid, lift Frying Basket by
Handle and pour contents onto plate covered with paper towels before serving.
NOTE: If frying more than one batch of food, wait for Ready light to illuminate, and
follow steps 8–12 as described above.
12. When finished cooking, shut down fryer by flipping the ON/OFF Toggle Switch
to the OFF position.
WARNING: DO NOT USE BREAK-AWAY POWER CORD SYSTEM TO DISCONNECT THE
FRYER. ALWAYS DISCONNECT PLUG FROM WALL OUTLET FIRST TO DISCONNECT
FRYER. Use only Model# PL1215 magnetic cord set with this product. The use of
any other magnetic cord set may cause fire, electric shock, or injury.
CAUTION: The Break-away power cord is only for accidental disconnection and not
to be removed during normal operation. If the cord becomes disconnected, the
user should immediately unplug the cord set from the wall outlet, flip ON/OFF
Toggle Switch to OFF, then reconnect the magnetic cord to the Deep Fryer and
then to the wall outlet.
NOTE: Your Deep Fryer is provided with a safety protection device:
If the Control Panel Assembly is not properly placed in the Fryer Housing, the
Control Panel Assembly will not operate.
The Immersion Heating Element cannot
be switched on unless you insert the
Control Panel Assembly into the locating
slots of the Fryer Housing.

TIPS FOR DEEP FRYING
• Fill the unit between the maximum and minimum capacity lines only.
• Do not over fill the basket. To achieve quality results deep frying food needs to
be surrounded by oil. Too much food causes the oil temperature to drop,
resulting in “soggy” food.
• Coated foods (bread crumbs, batters, etc.) are best for deep frying. The coating
acts as a protective layer keeping food moist on the inside and crisp on the
outside.
• Before deep frying, remove ice crystals from food and blot dry with a towel.
Excessive water and ice can cause the oil to splatter and/or overflow. For best
results, defrost frozen foods for 20 minutes to create a crispier final product.
• Fry foods at the correct temperature for best results. This will prevent burning
and give you even colored, crispy food.
• Prepackaged frozen cooked chicken may cook faster than uncooked food.
• For even cooking, shake basket half way through cooking time.

RESETTING YOUR DEEP FRYER
This Fryer is equipped with a sensor which will automatically shut the unit off if it is
overheated. Overheating can occur if the unit is heated without oil, with
insufficient oil, or with older oil that has become thick. Should the unit shut off,
unplug and allow the unit to cool. Correct the cause of overheating. Then with the
tip of a pen or pencil or the end of a paper clip, press into the recessed Reset
Button on the back of the Control Panel Assembly (Refer to Parts and Features
section of this manual). The unit will not operate until it is reset.
HOW TO CLEAN YOUR DEEP FRYER
WARNING: Always flip ON/OFF Toggle Switch to “OFF” then disconnect plug
from wall outlet BEFORE disconnecting BREAK-AWAY CORD.
CAUTION:
• Do not immerse cord sets in water or any liquids.
• Do not attempt to defeat the detachable magnetic Break-away cord system by
trying to permanently attach cord set to product.
• Do not stick pins or other sharp objects in holes on magnetic cord set.
• Do not use any type of steel wool to clean magnetic contacts.
1. Unplug from outlet and allow unit to cool completely.
2. Remove Break-away magnetic cord from the fryer.
3. Clean the outside of the Deep Fryer and lid with a damp cloth.
CAUTION: Do not use abrasive pads or alcohol.
4. Remove Frying Basket. Wash the Frying Basket in the dishwasher or with hot
soapy water. Rinse and towel dry carefully.
5. Lift Control Panel Assembly up from the front of fryer. Gently wipe down the
outer surface of the Control Panel Assembly with a damp cloth containing mild
soap solution or plain water.
6. Remove Condensation Tray.
NOTE: A Removable Condensation Tray is located on the back of the fryer. The
Condensation Tray will collect any water that has condensed on the inside of the
Lid when the Lid is opened after frying. Remember to empty and clean the
Condensation Tray after each use. To clean, simply rinse with warm water.
NOTE: the Control Panel Assembly should never be immersed in water or other
liquids.
CAUTION: Be sure you have allowed enough time, after using, for Control Panel
Assembly to cool down completely.
Carefully lift Oil Reservoir out by holding the rim of the bowl. See Tips for Oil Use
and Storage on page 8.
7. The Basket, Lid and Oil Reservoir are dishwasher safe. For best results, remove
Grease Filter from Lid and wash separately in warm soapy water or in the
dishwasher. Dry thoroughly. Dry all parts thoroughly after cleaning.
8. Ensure that both the Lid and the Oil Reservoir are completely dry after washing
and before use.
9. After cleaning, reassemble Control Panel Assembly into the locating slots on
the Fryer Housing (See Fig. 1). The Control Panel Assembly must be attached
properly to the Fryer Housing or the appliance will not operate.

TIPS FOR OIL USE AND STORAGE
• Do not use seasoned or flavored oil such as walnut, olive oil, lard or drippings
because they have a low smoke point. Use blended vegetable oil, pure corn oil,
sunflower oil, soybean oil or grapeseed (canola oil) because these oils have a
high smoke point. Peanut oil is not recommended because it greatly impacts
the flavor.
• Oils should never be mixed when deep frying.
• High heat, water, and burnt food particles break down the oil’s smoke point.
• Replace oil if you notice:
- Excessive smoking at normal temperatures
- Strong oil discoloration
- A rancid smell
- Excessive foaming around the frying food
• Oil darkens with use because the oil and food molecules burn when subjected
to high/prolonged heat. The more you use an oil, the more slowly it will pour. Its
viscosity changes because of changes to the oil’s molecular structure. When
smoke appears on the oils’ surface before the temperature reaches 375 °F,
your oil will no longer deep-fry effectively.
• When frying foods with strong flavor and/or aroma like fish, use the oil only once.
• Also, use the oil only once when frying fresh or frozen chicken. A great deal of
moisture is released when frying the chicken, this breaks down the oil easily
and can cause the oil to foam and lower the smoke point.
• Filtering the oil with a cooking oil filter or fine-mesh strainer can help keep it
fresher. Although storing oil in a refrigerator may extend the life of the oil, this
should never be done. The process of chilling oil then bringing the oil to room
temperature causes excessive splattering during the heat up process.
• Store the covered oil in a cool dark place, for up to three months. Also check
the oil before using for color, smell or excessive foaming. Discard the oil if it
shows any of these qualities.
