NOTE
For TWICE FRIED CHIPS, FRESH is
the only available option as frozen
chips have been precooked.
2. Start the heating process by pushing the
START/CANCEL button. The display
will turn orange to indicate heating.
TWICE FRIED CHIPS, FRESH, 1ST FRY,
HEATING and the actual temperature of
the oil will be displayed.
The deep fryer will now preheat the oil.
Once the deep fryer has reached the
correct temperature, the deep fryer will
beep once to indicate it is ready to cook.
PRESS TIMER will display.
3. Lower the basket of fresh chips into the
oil and press the TIMER button. When
the TIMER button is pressed, the timer
will start to count down, and the cooking
process begins.
NOTE
The fryer is programmed to heat to
the correct overshoot temperature
because when the cooler chips are
lowered into the oil, the temperature
of the oil will fall. The overshoot
temperature ensures that the chips
cook at the optimal temperature,
even after they initially cause the oil
temperature to drop.
When the timer finishes counting down,
the alarm will sound to signal the end of
the cooking cycle. PRESS TIMER, TWICE
FRIED CHIPS, 1ST FRY and FRESH, the
time and temperature will be displayed.
5. Push the TIMER button to stop the
alarm and raise the basket. The deep
fryer will automatically begin to reheat.
Once the deep fryer has reached the
correct temperature, it is ready
to proceed.
NOTE
In TWICE FRIED CHIPS mode it
is possible to adjust the timer and
temperature once the timer has
started but it is not possible to switch
between 1ST FRY and 2ND FRY.
At this point, the fryer is able to proceed to
either the 2ND FRY or to another 1ST FRY
of a second batch of chips, depending on
the total quantity to be fried. TWICE FRIED
CHIPS, FRESH, 1ST FRY, PRESS TIMER,
the time and cooking temperature display.
NOTE
NOTE
When cooking chips using the
Twice Fried method, it is not
recommended to cook with the
lid on due to the possible build up of
excess condensation.
If a second batch of chips is to be
cooked, we recommend to 1ST FRY
both batches and then proceed to
the 2ND FRY for both batches. This
process means less heating and
cooling of oil, providing better results
and is more time efficient.

turn out into a lined bowl.
Repeating 1ST FRY with new batch of
fresh chips
1. Empty the contents of the basket onto a
plate lined with paper towel to cool.
2. Follow the instructions for
1ST FRY above.
NOTE
If using the lid during and
immediately after cooking, steam may
rise through the filter vent openings in
the lid. This is normal, however avoid
touching this area during cooking
to prevent steam burns as the steam
generated is at a high temperature.
As the basket gets very hot, only use
the handle to hold or carry the basket
for serving. Ensure the basket handle
is locked into position.
Solid oil products, such as butter,
margarine or animal fats of any kind
should not be used in the deep fryer as
they may overheat and cause a
fire hazard.
Water and oil do not mix – never add
any water or other liquid to hot oil.
Even small amounts of water will
cause the oil to splatter.
The deep fryer will generate a lot of
heat and steam during and after the
cooking process. To prevent the risk
of burns, do not touch or block the
steam ventilation area on the lid.
Extreme caution must be used when
the deep fryer is filled with hot oil or
other liquid. Do not move the deep
fryer during cooking and allow it to
cool before removing oil.

BDF500_UK_IB_B13.indd 14
4/07/13 2:29 PM
Cooking guide
Foods should be crisp when deep fried.
If results are soggy, the oil isn’t hot enough.
This can be attributed to one or more of
the following:
• Not enough preheating time
• Temperature too low
• Too much food in the basket (do not fill
more than two thirds full)
• Do not use solid frying oil, only use
liquid oils
Use good quality liquid oil. For best results,
use the below recommended oils
NOTE
If cooking large quantities of food
(approx 600g–1.25kg). It is not
recommended to cook with the lid on
due to the possible build up of
excess condensation.
The most suitable oil for deep frying
include:
All oils have different smoke points. Smoke
points are the point at which the fat begins
to break down into visible gaseous products.
• The smoke point of different fats is
determined by the free fatty acid content
of the fat. Generally, the lower the free
fatty acid content the more stable the fat
and the higher the smoke point.
• Free fatty acid levels are generally lower
in refined vegetable oils with a smoke
point of around 230°C. Where as animal
fats are around 190°C.
• The smoke point of a deep-frying fat
is lowered every time it is used. Food
particles are always left behind after
cooking. This will also lower the smoke
point of the fat.
• Suitable oils for deep frying include:
Peanut oil, Vegetable oil, Canola oil,
Safflower oil and Rice Bran oil. Olive
oil is not recommended for deep frying
due to its low smoke-point temperature.
These oils are described below:
Peanut Oil
Peanut oil is obtained from the kernels of
the ground nut or peanut. It has a delicate
flavour, nutty odour and has a high
smoke point. Peanut oil is high in
mono-unsaturated oil and vitamin E.
Vegetable Oil
A general term that refers to a blend of oils
extracted from various seeds and fruits.
Vegetable oil has a very mild flavour and
aroma. It is low in cholesterol and
saturated fats.
Canola Oil
Made from seeds of the canola plant. It is
relatively low in saturated fats, contains
Omega 3 fatty acids and has a bland,
neutral flavour.
Safflower Oil
The oil is extracted from the seeds of the
sunflower plant. It is pale yellow in colour
with virtually no flavour. Sunflower oil is
high in polyunsaturated fats and low in
saturated fats.
Rice Bran oil
The oil is extracted from the germ and husk
of rice. It has a mild, nutty flavour and high
smoke point. It is high in vitamin E and
antioxidants.

Method for the perfect chips
1. Select any of the following oils: peanut
oil, rice bran oil, sunflower oil,
vegetable oil.
2. Use a floury unwashed potato such as
Sebago or King Edward.
3. Wash and peel potatoes.
4. Cut into 1cm thick chips and place into
a large bowl. Cover with cold water and
juice of a lemon to prevent potatoes
from browning.
5. When ready to use, drain and dry
thoroughly with paper towel.
6. Fill deepfryer with 4 litres of oil.
15. Lower into hot oil. Press TIMER button.
Cook until the alarm sound signals end
of cooking cycle.
16. Remove chips from basket and drain
onto a tray lined with paper towel.
17. Season with sea salt and
serve immediately.
NOTE
Twice fried chips temperatures are
based on 1kg load of fresh hand cut
potato chips.
Smaller batches of chips can be
cooked, follow chart on page 18 for
cooking temperatures and times.
7. Set deepfryer to TWICE FRY CHIPS/
FRESH setting.
Types of potatoes that make the most
succulent chip include the following:
8. Select 1ST FRY and press the
START/CANCEL button to PREHEAT
the oil.
King Edward, Maris Piper, Romano
and Desiree.
9. Cook 1kg batches of chips at a time.
When should I change the oil? What
should I look for?
10. Place chips into basket and lower
into hot oil. Press TIMER button. Cook
until the alarm sound signals end of
cooking cycle.
It is recommended to change the oil every
week if deep fryer is used every day.
11. Remove chips from oil and drain on a
tray lined with paper towel; refrigerate
until cooled.
There are distinct indicators that will show
you when your oil is no longer deep frying
effectively. These include:
• The surface of the oil will begin to foam
once heated.
• Smoke will appear on the surface of the
oil before the recommended deep frying
temperatures are reached.
• Oils can develop an ‘off’ smell. This
indicates that the oil has become rancid.
• The oil’s odour is that of the foods you
have cooked eg. seafood.
• The oil will change in viscosity, that is, it
will pour slowly and become thick with a
syrupy appearance.
12. Continue this method until all the
potatoes have been through the
1ST FRY.
13. Alternatively, to continue cooking
chips directly onto 2ND FRY, leave
blanched chips in basket and drain on
basket hook.
14. Select TWICE FRY CHIPS/FRESH
setting and choose 2ND FRY. Press
START/CANCEL button to PREHEAT
the oil and continue as below.
If using once or twice a week, the oil can be
changed every three weeks.

Storage and preparation of used oil
Re-using your oil is best achieved if proper
methods are used after and during cooking.
1. Never season or salt food before or
during cooking as it will burn and
discolour the oil. This in turn shortens
the lifespan of your oil.
2. Cool oil completely before pouring
through a coffee filter or cloth to remove
food solids and debris.
3. Store in a sealed container either in the
refrigerator or in a cool dark cupboard.
4. Repeat the filtering and cleaning process
after each use.
5. Properly dispose of old used oil
according to council requirements.

To reset, allow the deep fryer to cool
completely, and then press the two red reset
buttons located above the cord storage area
at the back of the control panel.
• Before cleaning, always ensure the deep
fryer is turned off and disconnected from
the power outlet.
If the Temperature Control detects oil
temperature to be less than –20°C it will
display the message ER1.
If the Temperature Control detects the oil
temperature to exceed 210°C the display will
show the message ER2. Reset the unit as
per above.
Auto Cutout safety feature
Always add the required amount of oil
BEFORE switching the power on at the
power outlet. An Auto Cut-Out safety switch
will be activated if the deep fryer is turned
on without oil in the bowl. The fryer will
then need to be reset as above.
• Ensure the deep fryer and oil are
completely cool. Oil will retain its
temperature for a long time after use.
Do not attempt to move or carry the
deep fryer, element or control panel
while they are hot.
• Wash the frying basket in hot, soapy
water. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

container in a cool area. Good quality
oil can be used several times. Do not
store the oil in the deep fryer. Discard
used oil in a sealed container with
household waste. Do not pour down a
sink or drain.

bowl, stainless steel outer body and wire
frying basket in hot soapy water, rinse
and dry thoroughly The removable inner
bowl allows for easy cleaning. Wipe
