Make sure the fryer is unplugged. Wash the fryer basket and cover in hot, soapy water. Wipe dry thoroughly. Wipe the inside of the oil reservoir with a damp cloth and wipe dry thoroughly before adding the oil. Warning: All components must be completely dried before filling with oil or using. Assembling Your Deep Fryer Caution: Never turn on the deep fryer when the oil reservoir is empty. Always ensure the deep fryer is out of the reach of children. Always use the deep fryer on a flat, heat resistant surface. 1. Make sure the timer is in the “Off” position. 2. Attach the “break-away” safety cord. The top of the cord can be identified by the “THIS SIDE UP” raised print. When attaching cord - you will feel a magnetic pull on the cord when attaching cord correctly. 3. Pour cooking oil into the oil reservoir until the oil level is between the “MIN” and “MAX” marking on the inside of the oil reservoir. DO NOT exceed the “Max” level for cooking oil. 4. To attach the handle to the fryer basket, pinch the two handle ends together to insert the metal part of the handle inside the basket handle bracket on the fryer basket. (Fig. 1) mE = - ; ” E Е Le cuisse Fig. 1 Filling the Oil Reservoir With Oil Warning: Never plug in the deep fryer before filling with oil to specified level. e Use blended vegetable oil, pure corn oil or canola (rapeseed) oil. DO NOT use olive oil, margarine, lard or drippings. The oil level must always be maintained between the minimum and the maximum levels marked inside the oil reservoir. Check the oil level before each use. For best results, keep the oil close to the maximum level. Never mix different oils and fats together. DO NOT mix old and new oil. Using Solid Fat Warning: It is NOT RECOMMENDED to put solid shortening in the oil reservoir or the fryer basket. e [fusing solid vegetable shortening, melt it first in a separate pan and then very carefully pour the melted fat into the oil reservoir. e Previously used solid vegetable shortening which has curdled and hardened in the oil reservoir should be removed from the oil reservoir and melted in a separate pan before reusing. Caution: If you try to melt the solidified fat in the oil reservoir, there is a risk of warm melted fat suddenly sputtering from below through the still solid top layer of fat. Therefore use only the following procedure: 1. Make sure the fat is at room temperature. If the fat is very cold, there is a greater risk of splashing. 2. Using a fork, carefully make some holes in the fat. Make sure the cover is securely closed while fat is melting. Heat fat slowly on lowest temperature setting. Filling the Frying Basket e Do not fill the frying basket when it is immersed in oil. e Place the food in the frying basket. Do not overfill it and never exceed the maximum quantities. For optimum results and shorter frying time, basket should be only 1/2 full. e Do not fill the basket higher than the MAX line on the basket with frozen food. Warning: When frying foods, remove the frying basket from the deep fryer before filling with frozen food because oil will spatter and cause burns. Caution: Never exceed "MAX" line when filling the basket with food. It is recommended that food is at the 3/4 level, below the MAX line when frying frozen food. Clean off any ice from frozen food prior to frying. Failure to do so may cause fryer to overflow when food is placed in oil. Using Your Deep Fryer Warning: All Components must be completely dried before filling the oil reservoir with oil and using the fryer. Special care must be taken to ensure the filter compartment and removable lid are dry, otherwise steam may become dangerously trapped inside the fryer during use.

Always let the deep fryer cool completely (approximately 2 hours) before cleaning or storing. Never carry or move the deep fryer with hot oil inside. NO OA — © Frying Tips e To avoid condensation buildup on the viewing window - rub a little cooking oil on the window. e DO NOT mix different oils or new and old oil together o Replace oil regularly. In general, oil used to fry food with protein, (such as poultry, meat and fish) e should not be reused. When oil is used mainly to fry potatoes and is filtered after each use, it can be used up to 8 to 10 times, but DO NOT use the same oil for more than 6 months e Always replace all oil as soon as it starts foaming when heated or when color becomes dark or when it has a rancid smell or taste or becomes syrupy. Make sure that the food to be fried is dry. Dab food with paper or clean dish towel if necessary Remove loose ice from frozen food before frying To cook evenly, pieces should be the same size and thickness. Thicker pieces will take longer to cook. Temperature Settings The following cooking times reflect only the approximate time needed to fry one basket 1/2 full. The exact time may be different depending on actual quantity, personal cooking preferences, size and thickness of pieces, etc. In general, use lower settings for delicate foods (vegetables, fish) and higher settings for frozen foods, French Fries and chicken. Note: If you wish to deep fry food at 350°F, place the temperature control dial in between the 325°F and 375°F settings. Food Cooking Time Temp.

When oil is mainly used to fry potatoes and is filtered after each use, it can be used 8 to 10 times. However, do not use the same oil for longer than 6 months. * Маке sure the deep fryer is unplugged and the oil has cooled (approximately 2 hours) before emptying the oil into a container and storing the fryer. Remove the fryer cover. «To empty the oil, first make sure the oil has cooled and then empty the oil from the oil reservoir into a storage container or bottle from the back corner. Please note that the oil reservoir is not removable from the deep fryer. The Detachable Break-away Cord Your deep fryer has been specifically designed with your safety in mind. Your deep fryer has a unique detachable power supply cord. This power supply cord is designed to “break-away” from the fryer in the event that the power cord or fryer is inadvertently pulled or tugged. Warning: This is intended to prevent the tipping of the appliance and hazardous spillage of hot oil. It is NOT: intended to disconnect the fryer during normal use. To connect the power cord - note the instructions on the cord plug area - “THIS SIDE UP”. Place plug into opening - you will feel the magnetic pull. Slide the plug into the slot until it connects. If the cord should be disconnected from the unit during operation, the user should immediately unplug the power cord from the electrical wall outlet before any attempt to reconnect the magnetic cord back to the deep fryer unit. Warning: DO NOT come in contact with the magnetic connection of the power cord while it is plugged into electrical wall outlet. Injury can occur.
