Important Cord and Plug Information
A short power supply cord is provided to reduce the risk resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
DO NOT USE WITH AN EXTENSION CORD.
Do not allow the cord to run underneath or around the unit. The magnetic cord may not detach easily if the cord is positioned
in this fashion.
Before First Use
Become familiar with the various parts
of the deep fryer (Fig. A1) and read the
instructions carefully.
Remove all packing material and disassemble unit for cleaning. Take the fry/
steam basket out of the unit. Remove
the cord assembly from the basket and
set aside. Then, lift the control assembly
out of the unit. Wipe the control assembly (control unit with heating element)
with a damp cloth. Never immerse
the control assembly, cord, or plug
in water. Lift the removable pot out of
the base and wash the pot, fry/steam
basket, and fryer cover in dishwasher

Important Fryer Guidelines
u Use deep fryer only on a clean, dry, level, stable, and heat-resistant surface, away from countertop edge.
u Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children. Hot oil can cause serious and painful
burns.
u To avoid the risk of electrocution or severe disfiguring electrical burns, do not let children handle or put electrical cords
or plugs in their mouths.
u To avoid the risk of electrocution or electrical burns, do not let the control unit, cord, or plug come in contact with
water or other liquid.
u Never use the deep fryer without the removable pot.
u CAUTION: Oil and water do not mix. The combination can be dangerous. When the oil is heated, any
water droplets in the oil super-heat, becoming a volatile steam that can cause hot oil to spatter, boil over, or even erupt
out of the deep fryer. Hot oil can cause severe burns!
Accordingly, before pouring oil into the removable pot be sure that the pot and all parts are completely
dry. Before placing food in deep fryer, always remove ice crystals and excess moisture from food by patting dry
with toweling.
2
u Never use the deep fryer without oil or with insufficient oil. Failure to fill fryer with oil to the minimum (MIN) fill
level will cause overheating and damage to the product. Also never exceed the maximum fill level. Using more than
the maximum amount may cause the oil to boil over the top of the fryer. The minimum (MIN) and maximum (MAX)
fill levels are embossed inside the removable pot (Fig. A1, page 2).
u Use vegetable oil for deep frying, such as corn, sunflower, peanut, or soybean. Deep frying foods in olive oil is not
recommended because it has a lower smoking temperature.
u Do not use solid fat (shortening, butter, margarine, lard). Solid fat will not melt uniformly and will cause severe
smoking. It may also cause the unit to overheat resulting in the reset button tripping. In addition, solid fat will solidify
once it has cooled making it very difficult to remove or insert the control assembly.
u Do not use cover while frying french fries and other high moisture foods.
u Use caution when deep frying flour tortillas. Flour tortillas contain air bubbles. During deep frying, oil can become
trapped within these bubbles. If not properly drained, the bubbles can burst and cause burns. Therefore, after deep
frying tortillas, carefully raise them out of the cooking oil and allow oil to drain from the tortillas for approximately
30 seconds.
u Use caution when deep frying doughs, such as beignets, donuts, dumplings, hushpuppies, and fritters. These foods may
develop air bubbles during heating, which may burst and cause burns. Use a slotted spoon or tongs, rather than a fork,
when turning food during frying and also when removing food from oil.
u Always remove plug from wall outlet and then from deep fryer when unit is not in use.
u Always allow fryer to cool completely before removing any parts, before removing oil, and before cleaning.
Basket Handle Assembly/Storage
Your fryer will be shipped with the basket handle in the storage position
(Fig. B1). When ready to use the basket, simply lift the handle out of the
basket. Then, gently squeeze the drain hooks (Fig. C), keeping the pegs
in the bracket holes, and fit the handle bars in the brackets (Fig. D). The
handle is now in the locked position (Fig. B2).

How To Use for Frying
1.Position base on a clean, dry, level, stable, and heat-resistant surface in center of countertop. Always use the
handles on the base when lifting or moving the appliance. Never lift or move appliance using control assembly.
2.Place removable pot in base.
3.Attach the control assembly to the base by aligning the two guides
Fig. F
on the front of the control unit with the two tracks on the back of the
base (Fig. F). Slide the control assembly down (Fig. G) as far as it goes
making sure both guides are in the tracks. Note: The appliance will only
operate when both guides are properly positioned in the tracks.
4.Fill removable pot with cooking oil up to the MAX level marking,
which is located on the inside of the removable pot (Fig. A1, page 2).
Tracks
Your fryer will need approximately 12 cups of cooking oil. The amount
of oil must always be between the MAX and MIN level markings inside
Guides
the removable pot (Fig. A1). Never exceed the MAX level mark.
5.Attach the cord to the unit by aligning the magnetic plug end with the two electrical
Fig. G
pins located on the back of the control unit (Fig. A2, page 2). The plug can be attached
in either direction.
Important: The magnetic cord was designed to detach easily from the fryer. As a
result, if it is bumped or touched during use it could possibly detach causing the
unit to stop heating. Avoid contact with cord during operation. If contact occurs,
verify that the cord is still properly connected.
6.Plug cord into a 120 volt wall outlet. Always make sure fryer and cord are out of
reach of children.
7.Turn the thermostatic control to the desired temperature (see page 6 for proper cooking temperatures). The
recommended setting for most frying is 375˚. While oil is heating, the signal light will be illuminated.
8.When the selected temperature is reached, the signal light will go out. (Preheat time is approximately 10 minutes.)
9.While oil is heating, prepare food for cooking.
Note: The black cover vents will expand and appear to change shape when the fryer is heating. When the cover cools,
the vents will contract and appear to return to their original position. Both the expansion and contraction are normal.
10.Assemble basket handle for frying, see page 3.
To insure against accidental detachment of handle from basket during use, always make sure both pegs are in the
bracket holes and the handle bars are in the brackets (Fig. C and D, page 3).
11.Place basket on countertop and fill basket up to ¾ full with food. (For raw fries, only fill basket ½ full.) Before
deep frying, remove excess moisture from food by blotting with toweling—moist foods cause excess foaming and
spattering.
12.Attach the filled fry basket to the removable pot using the drain hooks. Then, position cover over basket with
cover vents away from basket handle. Gently lift basket to disengage drain hooks from pot. Then slowly lower the
filled basket into the preheated oil until the bottom of the basket rests on top of the heating element. If frying french
fries or other high moisture foods, immediately remove cover after lowering basket into oil.
For crisper foods, fry without the cover.
Note: Check the oil level continuously while lowering basket that contains raw fries. If it appears that the oil will
bubble up to the rim of the removable pot, raise the basket and allow the oil bubbles to subside and then slowly lower
the basket again. Repeat until the basket is completely lowered into the fryer.
Warning: To prevent the risk of severe personal injury or property damage, use caution when cooking with hot
oil.
13.Set the timer by pressing the button to the desired time. See page 3 for timer operating instructions. Refer to
page 6 for recommended times.
Note: The timer works independently from the unit; it does not turn power to the unit on or off.
Caution: It is normal for steam to escape from the cover vents during frying. To prevent steam burns keep
hands and face away from the vents.

14.When the set time has expired, check that the food is golden brown. Then lift the basket and hook it onto the fryer
rim to allow oil to drain from food.
15.Empty the food onto absorbent paper. Season to taste.
16.If frying additional food, repeat steps 11 through 15. If signal light is on, allow oil to reheat until signal light goes
out.
17.When frying is completed, remove plug from wall outlet and then from deep fryer. Allow oil and fryer to cool
completely before removing control assembly and before cleaning.
Helpful Hints for Deep Frying
u If unit fails to preheat or if the cooking process stops:
1. Check cord assembly to assure magnetic plug is attached to the appliance and the cord is plugged into the
wall outlet.
2. Check to see that both guides on the front of the control unit are properly positioned in the tracks on the back
of the base (see Fig. F and Fig. G, page 4).
3. The reset button may have tripped. The deep fryer is equipped with a sensor which will automatically shut
the unit off if it is heated without oil or water or with insufficient oil or water. Older oil that has become thick
and solid fats may not conduct heat well and may also cause the sensor to trip and the unit to shut off. Unplug
and allow the unit to cool. Correct the cause of overheating. Then with the tip of a pen, press the red RESET
button on the back of the control unit (see Fig. A2, page 2). The unit will not operate until it is reset. Before
plugging the unit back in, make sure there is sufficient oil or water in the fryer, or if the oil is old, replace the
oil with fresh oil.
u When using fryer for the first time, a slight odor or light smoking may occur as manufacturing residue evaporates. This
is normal during initial use.
u Before deep frying, always remove excess moisture or ice crystals from food by patting it dry with toweling. Moist
foods may cause excess foaming, spattering, and crackling.
u Fry foods of equal size and thickness as they will fry more evenly and at the same speed.
u Do not fill the basket more than ¾ full for most foods. For raw fries, do not fill basket more than ½ full. If too much
food is fried at the same time, the food will not get crisp.
u For crisper foods, fry without the cover.
u For breading or coating foods, use commercial breading, finely ground bread or cracker crumbs, corn meal, a mixture
of corn meal and flour, pancake mix, or prepared bread mixes.
u Foods that are battered may stick to the basket; therefore, you may wish to fry these types of foods without the basket.
If, however, you want to use the basket, lower the basket into the oil before placing battered foods in the oil. Coated or
breaded foods can be fried with or without the basket. When using the fryer without the basket, a heat resistant scoop
may be used to add and/or remove foods.
u Use only heat resistant utensils in the fryer as most plastic or rubber will become damaged from the hot oil. Do not
leave metal utensils in the fryer as they will become hot.
u After each use, strain oil through a filter or a double thickness of cheesecloth to remove the accumulated residue.
u The number of times the cooking oil can be reused will depend on the food that is fried in it. For example, the oil will
need to be replaced more often if fish or food coated with bread or cracker crumbs is fried frequently.
u The longer oil is heated, the more rapidly it deteriorates. Avoid preheating longer than necessary and unplug the fryer
once the last batch of food has been removed from it.
u To prolong the useful life of oil, store it in an airtight container in a cool, dark area or in the refrigerator.
u It is time to replace the cooking oil if any of the following occur:
The oil is dark in color.
The oil has an unpleasant odor.
The oil smokes when it is heated.
The oil foams excessively during frying.

Recipes
Raw French Fries (Double Fry Method)
Cut medium potatoes, peeled if desired, into ¼ to ½ inch thick strips. Place into large bowl
and cover with hot, tap water. Soak potato strips for 15 minutes or until ready to fry. Rinse,
drain, and pat dry with paper towels
Because raw fries contain a high percentage of moisture, extreme care must be used when
deep frying. Thoroughly dry raw fries before deep frying. Fill the basket ½ rather than
¾ full. Lower the filled basket slowly into the oil. If the oil starts to boil up too quickly, lift
the basket out of the oil for a couple of seconds, then lower it again. Repeat as necessary
until the basket is completely lowered into the fryer.
Fry at 350˚ for 3 to 4 minutes until fries are cooked through but not browned. Drain; let stand
to cool for at least 10 minutes, but not more than 2 hours. Just before serving, fry potatoes
at 375˚ for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

How To Use for Steaming and Boiling
1.Follow steps 1 through 3 on page 4.
Note: To avoid steam damage to cabinets when using the steaming and boiling function, position the deep fryer so that
it is not directly under cabinets.
2.For boiling, fill removable pot with water up to the MAX level marking, which is located on the inside of the
removable pot (Fig. A1, page 2). Your fryer will need approximately 12 cups of water for boiling. Never exceed the
MAX level mark.
For steaming, fill removable pot with water up to the MIN level marking, which is located on the inside of the
removable pot (Fig. A1, page 2). Your fryer will need approximately 8 cups of water for steaming. Do not use less than
the minimum.
3.Attach the cord to the unit by aligning the magnetic plug end with the two electrical pins located on the back of
the control unit (Fig. A2, page 2). The plug can be attached in either direction.
Important: The magnetic cord was designed to detach easily from the fryer. As a result, if it is bumped or
touched during use it could possibly detach causing the unit to stop heating. Avoid contact with cord during
operation. If contact occurs, verify that the cord is still properly connected.
4.Plug cord into a 120 volt wall outlet. Always make sure fryer and cord are out of reach of children.
5.Turn the thermostatic control to 300˚ and place the cover on the deep fryer.
6.While water is heating, prepare food for cooking.
Note: The black cover vents will expand and appear to change shape when the fryer is heating. When the cover cools,
the vents will contract and appear to return to their original position. Both the expansion and contraction are normal.
7.Assemble basket handle for cooking, see page 3.
To insure against accidental detachment of handle from basket during use, always make sure both pegs are in the
bracket holes and the handle bars are in the brackets (Fig. C and D, page 3).
8.Place basket on countertop and fill basket up to 3⁄4 full with food. Do not exceed 2 pounds of food in the basket.
9.When water begins to boil (approximately 9 to 11 minutes), remove cover and attach the filled basket to the
removable pot using the drain hooks. Then position cover over basket with cover vents away from basket handle.
If steaming, leave basket hooked on removable pot.
If boiling, slowly lower the filled basket into the water until the bottom of the basket rests on top of the heating
element.
10.Set the timer by pressing the button to the desired time. See page 3 for timer operating instructions. Refer to
page 10 for recommended times.
Note: The timer works independently from the unit; it does not turn power to the unit on or off.
Caution: It is normal for steam to escape from the cover vents during boiling and steaming. To prevent steam
burns keep hands and face away from the vents.
11.When the set time has expired, remove cover and then remove basket from fryer if the food was steamed. If food
was boiled, lift the basket and hook it onto the fryer rim to allow food to drain.
12.Empty the food into serving bowls. Season to taste.
13.When cooking is completed, remove plug from wall outlet and then from deep fryer. Allow fryer to cool
