Additional Safety Precautions
Do not use the Fryer without oil. The Fryer will be severely damaged
if heated dry. Only use liquid oil in your Deep Fryer. Never use solid
fat or shortening, as this will cause your Deep Fryer to overheat, or
possibly start a fire.
10 This Deep Fryer is designed with a Magnetic Release Power Cord
that will break away from the Fryer base if the power cord is pulled.
This safety feature will prevent the appliance from tipping and the
hazardous spillage of hot oil.
This Fryer is equipped with a safety reset button in order to prevent
operation of the appliance in the event of improper use, or irregular
operation. Once your Deep Fryer has completely cooled press the
Reset button on the back of the control panel. If your Deep Fryer
does not operate after using the reset button contact our customer
service department for repair.
WARNING: Always attach the cord to the Fryer first, then plug into
the proper wall receptacle. Never leave the Magnetic Release
Power Cord plugged into the wall without having it plugged into
the appliance.
Do not use an extension cord with this appliance.
Before using your Fryer for the first time wash the oil pot, lid, and
frying basket in warm soapy water and dry thoroughly. It is
important that your Fryer is completely dry prior to use as water will
cause the hot oil to spatter. Do not immerse the control panel or
power cord in water. Wipe with damp cloth only.
Prior to use ensure that your tap is in the closed position (See figure
11 on page 20) and that your Safety Drain Cap is placed securely on
the tap. See page 1 1 for installation instructions.
Do not place oversized foods or utensils not recommended by the
manufacturer in the Fryer.
This product should never be used unsupervised by children or
infirmed persons.
To prevent burns do not touch any metal parts of the Deep Fryer as
they are very hot. Always use heat resistant gloves
Always disconnect the power cord when not in use or when cleaning
your Fryer.

WARNING: Do not add water, wet foods or icy frozen foods to cooking
oil, because this will cause the oil to splatter and may result in injury. Do
not move the Deep Fryer while cooking, or at any time when the oil is
hot. Do not attempt to drain the oil while the oil is hot. To check food
during frying, look through the viewing window or you may carefully
open the lid by using the black handle only. Do not touch any metal
surfaces of your Deep Fryer as they are hot and can cause burns. Do not
place your hands above the filter vent on the lid while cooking, as the
steam is hot and can cause burns.
Always fry food between the temperatures of 350-375° unless recipe
specifies otherwise. Cooking at lower temperatures allows for more
oil absorption, which makes the food taste greasy.
Make sure READY indicator or COOKING indicator is blinking before
lowering food into oil.
Never fill the basket greater than the MAX line as indicated on the
basket near the handle. Too much food will prevent the food from
moving around and browning evenly. In addition, it may slow down
the cooking time. Fry in smaller batches for faster, crispier fried food.
When selecting oil to use in your Deep Fryer, choose a high quality
brand of peanut oil, canola oil, or vegetable oil. These fats can
withstand high temperatures well. Do not use butter, margarine,
animal fats or olive oil because these smoke at lower temperatures.
Do not mix different oils. Do not use shortening or lumps of fat as
your Deep Fryer thermostat will overheat.
To extend the frying life of your oil, always add 15 - 20% new oil or fat
each time you fry. This translates to approximately 1/2 to 1 cup new
oil each time you fry.
Cover and refrigerate the oil or fat between uses to
maintain freshness.
Change oil often and dispose of responsibly. Do not pour down the
sink drain. Check with local regulations for proper disposal.
Keep oil for frying seafood and fish separate from oil used for
potatoes and other milder items.
Before Deep frying any foods, remove excess moisture by blotting
well with a paper towel.
Do not add water, wet foods, or icy frozen foods to hot oil, because
this will cause the oil to spatter, which may result in injury.
When frying battered foods, shake off any excess batter or coating
before putting in the oil.
Never pour salt into the oil. Instead, salt the food while it is hot and
draining on a paper towel.
Frozen foods can be cooked in the basket. Follow directions on food
package. Use caution when lowering the basket in the oil, as the ice
crystals can cause spattering. Always lower slowly into the oil.
After cutting potatoes for French fries or potato chips, wash in cold
water to remove starch. This will keep them from sticking together.
Dry completely before frying.
Never place any plastic utensils into hot oil. Do not pour hot oil into
plastic containers.
Never drain hot oil from the spout, always unplug your Fryer and
allow it to completely cool before draining

Preparing for Frying
Many deep-fried foods are coated with a breading or batter before
frying. This helps to retain the moisture and flavor of the food and
protects the food from absorbing too much fat. Batters can also add
appetizing texture, flavor and appearance to the food to be fried.
Following are general guidelines for breading and battering foods,
including a variety of coatings you may not have thought of before.
Quantities will vary according to the amount of foods you are frying.
Following these tips will help prevent coatings from separating and
falling off into the Fryer.
Breading Foods For Frying
1 Set up three bowls or plates.
Place flour in the first bowl.
In the second bowl, make an egg wash by mixing eggs and either
water or milk.
In the last bowl, place the breading of your choice, like bread crumbs
or cornmeal. Try one of the following suggestions: fine dry bread
crumbs, fresh bread crumbs, crushed corn flakes, cracker meal, corn
meal, panko - rice bread crumbs, instant potato flakes, and rice flour
Clean the food to be fried and shake off any excess water. If desired,
season the food with salt and pepper.
Dip the food in the flour and shake off the extra flour.
Dip the food in the egg wash; let the extra drain off so that the
crumb coating will be even.
Lastly, dip the food in the crumbs, pressing gently and making sure it
is coated completely. Shake off excess.
Have a pan handy to hold the breaded food until ready to fry.
Tip: While breading food, occasionally remove any lumps from the
flour and crumbs for even coverage.
Battering Foods For Frying
Batters are semi-liquid mixtures containing flour or starch. They are used
in deep frying to give a crisp, flavorful coating. They are great on
seafood and vegetables, such as broccoli or shrimp.
• Many different liquids may be used: milk, beer, water, sake.
Care and Cleaning
Warning: Do not attempt to clean your Fryer or drain the oil while
either the Fryer or the oil is hot. Allow unit to completely cool.
Before cleaning, unplug the cord from the wall outlet first, and then from
your Deep Fryer and wait for the Deep Fryer to cool completely. Remove
the Control Panel with heating element from the base by lifting vertically.
Never immerse the control panel in any liquid. Clean the heating element
with hot, soapy water, being careful not to wet the control panel. Wash
the lid, frying basket, oil pot filter screen, and cooking pot in warm,
soapy water and dry thoroughly. Clean the exterior of the control panel
with a slightly damp cloth. Wipe the Deep Fryer housing with a damp
cloth. Always ensure that all components are dried thoroughly, as any
residual water will cause spattering of oil.
Draining the oil
The oil must be completely cool to avoid the risk of a burn injury.
Ensure that the drain tap has clearance to drain directly into the storage
container. Place a storage container under the drain tap. When moving
the Fryer to drain oil, ensure that all four feet of the Fryer housing stay
on the countertop. It is recommended that you use a screen strainer to
catch food particles in the oil from entering your storage container.
Ensure that your storage container is placed below the tap before
attempting to drain the oil. Push the black safety lock up while
simultaneously pulling the tap drain lever down to drain the oil (see
figures 8, 9 and 10). When oil has completely drained press the drain
latch up into the closed position (see figure 1 1). Wash the oil pot in warm
soapy water and dry thoroughly before use. The tap can be cleaned by
allowing warm soapy water to flow through the tap, followed by
rinsing with clear water.
Cover and refrigerate used oil for up to two weeks. Discard oil if it
becomes thick or rancid. Change the oil when it is a dark color, smells
bad or there is a bad taste in the food.
Important: Do not immerse the Deep Fryer control panel or power cord
in water or other liquid. Do not place any parts of the Deep Fryer in your
dishwasher. Always hand wash as described above and dry thoroughly.
Reassemble the Deep Fryer for storage by folding the handle into the
basket and placing the lid on top.
• Eggs may not be used.
• Too thick of a batter is not as palatable as a light one.
• For lighter results, use a leavening agent, such as baking powder,
beaten egg whites, beer or seltzer.

Shrimp Tempura with Cilantro
Fried Spinach Leaves
4 servings
4 servings
16 large shrimp, peeled, cleaned and deveined, with tail intact
1 large or 2 small jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
4 or 5 sprigs cilantro leaves chopped
2 medium limes, juiced
1 bunch spinach leaves
Peanut oil
Tempura Batter:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/4 cups water
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1/2 cup cilantro leaves, chopped fine
1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
Peanut oil, for frying
Fried Spinach Leaves, recipe follows on page 26
In your Deep Fryer, heat the peanut oil to 375°. Clean the spinach
leaves well, trim and dry thoroughly. Fry until crisp and translucent,
about 2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on clean
toweling. Season with salt to taste and serve immediately,
Note: As a single leaf garnish, you can substitute the Japanese oba leaf,
which you can purchase in Japanese markets. The procedure is the same
for small or large quantities of spinach. However, if cooking a large
amount of spinach, fry in batches and keep warm in a low oven.
Arrange the shrimp on a large platter. Sprinkle with the minced
jalapeno and the chopped cilantro. Pour the lime juice over and let
marinate for at least 30 minutes, refrigerated. When ready to cook,
season lightly with salt.
In a small bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. Whisk in
the water until the batter is smooth (do not overbeat), and then add
the remaining ingredients, seasoning with cayenne and salt to taste.
If made earlier in the day, set the bowl into an ice bath.
At serving time, in your Deep Fryer, heat the oil to 350º. Dip each
shrimp into the batter and coat well. Carefully place no more than 6
shrimp into the oil with the basket already lowered and cook until
golden brown, about 2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon or a
flat strainer and drain on paper or clean toweling. Keep warm while
preparing the remaining shrimp and the spinach.
Arrange a few fried spinach leaves on half of each of 4 plates.
Place 4 shrimps on the other half and serve immediately.
