Note: The cooking surface temperatures given
are a guide only and may require adjustment
to suit various foods and individual tastes.
When the dial is set to a low setting, it
is quite normal for food to stop and start
bubbling, as the thermostat maintains the
selected temperature.
Understanding your Sunbeam
Glass Lid
With the lid in place, the multicooker can be
used as an oven, giving you the versatility to
roast pieces of beef, lamb and chicken.
The lid also retains heat and moisture when
simmering food such as casseroles.
Cast-in element
The element is completely cast into the heavy
duty base for faster superior heating and a
longer element life.
Adjustable steam vent
The steam vent allows moisture to escape
without losing too much heat. Keep the vent
closed whenever cooking food where it is
necessary to retain the heat and/or moisture.
The vent should be left open for a crisper
result. When roasting chicken and meat,
open the vent in the last 15 minutes of
cooking to crispen.
Using your Multicooker
Before the first use
Wash, rinse and dry your Multicooker Deep

cooking temperature is maintained by the
Hint: On initial heating of the Multicooker
Deep Fryer, it is recommended that the
temperature be allowed to cycle (the light
glowing on and off) several times. This will
help the cooking surface to adjust to a more
accurate cooking temperature.
Note: The Multicooker Deep Fryer must only
be used with the Control Probe provided.
Saucepan cooking
The Multicooker is not just suitable for deep
frying, but it has many other uses. Use the

High Grade Non-Stick cooking
Cooking on a non-stick surface minimises the
need for oil, food does not stick and cleaning
is easier.
To ensure you get the best results from your
non-stick cooking surfaces, follow these
simple instructions:
Before the first use
“Season” the cooking surface by applying a
thin coat of cooking oil and rub in with paper
towelling. This will also be necessary after
cleaning in a dishwasher.
Avoid using high settings (8-10), as any food
which may burn on the non-stick surface may
cause it to discolour.
Any discolouration that may occur will only
detract from the appearance of the frypan
and will not affect the cooking performance.
To clean interior and exterior surface
Wash in hot soapy water. Remove stubborn
spots with a plastic washing pad or sponge.
These will damage the non-stick cooking
Your Multicooker Deep Fryer is completely
dishwasher-safe. The heating element is
totally sealed so it is safe to fully immerse in
Cooking with your Multicooker
Shallow frying
Add only sufficient quantity of oil to cover
the surface of the vessel. Preheat oil on dial
setting 6-7 before adding food. Turn the
food as you fry it, reducing heat if necessary.
Remove the food with a slotted spoon or
tongs, drain well and serve.
This is a term which means foods are quickly
fried and gently stirred in a small amount of
hot butter, margarine or oil. Foods that are
commonly sauteed are onions, mushrooms,
garlic, capsicums and meats. Sauteing
develops flavour. Preheat the vessel to dial
setting 3-4 with oil and saute as desired.
Ideal for cooking vegetables where they
are completely immersed in water which is
brought to boiling point. Heat is regulated to
continue the boiling action. Place the lid on
the vessel unless stated in the recipe.
Dry Frying
Preheat the cooker to dial setting 6-8 with a
little butter, margarine or oil. Remove excess
fat from meat and place it directly into the
vessel. Turn the food to seal and brown
both sides. It may be necessary to lower the
setting after sealing to complete the cooking.
When small amounts of butter, margarine or
oil are used, tilt the vessel slightly to coat the
entire surface.
Reheating Foods
To keep foods hot or reheat foods, place the
leftovers into the vessel and heat on setting
1-2. To prevent food drying out add a small
amount of stock or water as required. Another
way to heat leftovers is to wrap them in foil,
seal and place in the vessel with the lid on.
Heat on settings 3 or 4 for 5 to 10 minutes.
Braising and Stewing
This is the ideal method for cooking tougher
cuts of meat. First saute the food in butter
or oil to develop the flavour. Then cover
with stock, water or wine and cook for the
suggested time and setting in the recipe.
Always keep the lid on and the vent closed
when braising or stewing.
Deep Frying
• It is essential that foods to be deep fried
are completely immersed in the frying
medium. Select any frying medium you
wish, but refined, deodorised vegetable oils
are recommended. They can be used more
than once without marked deterioration.
Sunbeam also recommends peanut oil
or solid vegetable shortening of reliable
brands. Lard is the best of animal fats,
but it tends to be very rich in flavour and
odour. Dripping darkens quickly and is
not completely satisfactory. DO NOT USE
• Do not overfill the cooking vessel with oil
or shortening. Allow at least 8cm from the
top of the oil or shortening to the rim of
the vessel. About 8 to 10 cups (2 to 2 ½
litres) of oil or 2kg of shortening is ample.
If more is used, boilovers may occur.
• Never leave oil or shortening at high frying
temperatures for long periods of time. If
cooking fried foods in batches, lower the
temperature to setting 1-2 between frying
sessions, as it helps to extend the life of
the oil.
Cooking with your Multicooker continued
Care of oils and shortenings
• Strain after each use because food particles
or sediments cause oil to darken, foam and
lose its browning quality.
• Store in a cool place away from light.
• Renew oil frequently. We do not
recommend the addition of new oil to old,
as used oil breaks down the quality of the
new oil.
To clarify oils and shortenings
Oil or shortening will last longer if clarified
regularly. For each 500g of shortening or
2 cups (500 ml) of oil, add one potato,
peeled and cut into 5mm slices. Heat oil
or shortening gradually. When it ceases to
bubble and the potatoes are well browned,
strain the oil through several thicknesses of
muslin or cheesecloth placed over a strainer.
Set aside to cool. When ready to use, discard
any sediment left at the bottom of the bowl.
Hints for frying
• Vary time and temperature to suit taste,
size and quantity of foods.
• Do not heat more oil or shortening than
• Dry foods thoroughly on absorbent
paper before adding to hot oil, or before
dipping into frying batter, to avoid excess
• Use tongs or a long-handled slotted spoon
to gently lower food into hot oil. To avoid
spatter burns, never drop foods from
• Do not overcrowd the frying basket. It is
better to cook about half a basketful at a
• Batter-covered foods such as doughnuts are
best cooked one layer at a time.
• Wait for indicator light to go OFF before
frying next batch. Skim off any food
• Have absorbent paper handy for draining
Boiling vegetables
• Prepare vegetables (see pages 14-16).
• Add enough water to the vessel to barely
cover vegetables.
• Bring water to a rapid boil on setting 5-6.
• Add vegetables and return to
the boil.
• Cover, unless stated in recipe
or chart.
• Reduce setting to 2 (or gentle boil) and
cook for the suggested cooking time
(see pages 14-16).
• Drain vegetables.
Note: Vegetable stock may be used as a base
for sauces.
To blanch vegetables for freezing
• Prepare vegetables and plunge into boiling
• Boil rapidly for 1 to 10 minutes
(depending on vegetable).
• Remove and cool vegetables quickly by
placing in iced or running cold tap water.
• Leave approximately 2.5 cm space before
• Label, date and freeze.

puddings or where hot or scalded milk is
required, set control dial setting 3-4. Add
milk and bring to the desired temperature.
Melting Chocolate
Roughly chop chocolate and add to cooking
vessel. Set control between dial setting 2-4.
When chocolate has almost melted, turn
power OFF. Chocolate will completely melt
using ‘stored heat’.
Reconstituting Dried Fruit
Place dried fruit into a bowl and cover with
cold water. Soak for several hours. Transfer
fruit and water to cooking vessel. Set control
to dial setting 3-4. Cover with lid. Simmer
for 15-20 minutes, or until tender. Add sugar
5 minutes before end of cooking time, if
Roasting And Baking Meats
You will find it quite convenient to cook
joints of 2-3 kg in the cooking vessel. When
roasting meat, chickens, rabbits, etc., you
will find that two or three small pieces may
be put in side by side if required. Use only a
small quantity of oil, up to ¼ cup, to prevent
meat from sticking. Heat the vessel to dial
setting 8-10, place the meat in and turn it
to brown and seal on all sides. Veal or fat
free fillets of meat may require a little more
oil, while lamb and fatty cuts can be cooked
in their own fat. If excess fat accumulates
in the vessel, it is advisable to spoon this
out during cooking. After browning, set
the control to 10 to achieve a sizzling
action whilst the light is ON. Only fat, not
juice should accumulate whilst roasting.
Moisture in the fat indicates the necessity
to increase the temperature. Turn the meat
two or three times during cooking and add
vegetables three-quarters to one hour before
anticipated serving time. If necessary, change
temperature to 6 for crisp, brown vegetables.
To obtain crisp pork crackling, it is necessary
to increase the temperature to 8-10.
Roasting Nuts
Heat ¼ cup oil in cooking vessel on dial
setting 4-10 and add dry blanched nuts.
Stir continuously until browned. Drain on
absorbent paper and sprinkle with salt.

Cooking with your Deep Fryer
The Perfect Chip.
• For perfect fries and wedges old potatoes
are ideal. The potato should be low starch,
waxy variety i.e. chats, new potato or
desiree potatoes.
• Make sure that the chips are cut evenly
to guarantee even cooking.
• The cut chips should be rinsed under
running water until the water runs
clear. This removes excess starch from
the potatoes, starch burns at high
• Dry on kitchen towel before frying.
• Shake the basket at short intervals to
encourage even browning and to prevent
chips from sticking together.
• Homemade fries are double cooked. The
first fry blanches the chips so that they
cook through. The second fry colours the
chips and gives them a crisp crust. Use the
table below as a guide.
• Cooking times will vary depending on the
size of your fries or chips and the variety of
the potato used.
Hints for cooking the perfect frozen chip.
• Do not defrost frozen precooked chips.
For the best results they should be taken
directly from the freezer to the fryer.
• Heat oil to the maximum setting, 8-10.
• Place up to 1kg frozen chips into the fryer
basket and lower into the hot oil for 1 - 2
minutes to seal.
• Lift the basket out and rest the drainage
lever inside the rim of the cooking vessel.
Allow the oil to heat up again.
• Lower the basket again and fry the chips
for a further 3 - 4 minutes until golden
brown. The time required will depend on
the size and cut of the chip, and personal
• Allow chips to drain for a moment before
removing from the basket and seasoning.

Deep fry cooking with home
battered food.
This method allows for the fact that if
wet batter is placed in the basket prior to
cooking the food may stick to the basket.
1. Follow steps 1 - 6 only from the deep fry
cooking instructions on page 8.
2. Place the frying basket into the vessel with
the heated oil.
3. Coat the food in batter (see recipes on
page 37) and allow it to drain slightly to
get rid of the excess coating.
4. Very carefully, slowly lower the coated food
into the hot oil, using a suitable implement
or tongs.
This allows the batter to become solid
and prevents it sealing to the mesh of the
Note: Remember to take care as the oil may
spit as the food is added.
