FEATURES
1. These fryers are available in 2 different models. One is a 1-tank fryer (DF-12L); another is a 2-tank fryer (DF-12L/2).
The 2-tank fryer is able fry two different kinds of foods at the same time.
2. The oil temperature is regulated by the temperature regulator and includes a yellow (hot light) which cycles on and off
to indicate when the desired temperature has been reached.
3. The automatic shut off feature cuts power to the unit when the oil has reached 446°F (the maximum allowable
temperature).
4. There is an automatic micro-switch on the bottom of the unit head. This will cut power to the unit if the head has been
separated from the base of the unit without the power switch turned off or the power cord unplugged.
5. The stainless steel tank has a convenient spot for draining oil easily.
6. The heating coils are protected by a stainless steel panel base at the bottom of the unit.
TO USE
1. Make sure the power supply you are using is adequate for continual fryer use and voltage is adequate. The use of a
surge protector or circuit breaker is advisable.
2. Make sure that the temperature regulator knob is set to the off position
3. Remove basket from the machine.
4. Make sure the oil valve is closed
5. Fill oil receptacle with vegetable oil somewhere between the minimum and maximum levels, allowing room for food
volume.
5. Plug the machine in.
6. A green “Power Light” will come on. Rotate the temperature regulator knob clockwise to the desired temperature.
When the desired temperature has been reached, the yellow "Hot Light" will turn off and cycle and the temperature
controller will maintain the temperature automatically.
7. Load food into basket, and carefully place loaded basket into machine to avoid splash.
8. Gently shake off excess oil from food when removing from tank after frying.
9. The enclosed frying basket is intended to hold small foods such as French fries and onion rings. Large food can be
placed directly into the basket or oil tank.
CLEANING
After fryer usage, turn power controller counterclockwise to the “OFF” position and remove plug from power supply. The
procedure is as follows:
1. Carefully remove unit head from box and place in a safe dry place.
2. Put an oil container under the oil drain and open the drain valve to empty oil into the oil container
3. Gently wipe oil tank removing any excess oil or sludge. Dry completely and place back on machine
For best results, cover the fryer when oil is cool and not in use. This will keep unwanted debris from falling into the oil. For
best results, always use fresh vegetable oil with each use. It is recommended that you inspect the unit before each use to check
that the power cord is not frayed or damaged in any way.
