Important Cord 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 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.
Important Fryer Guidelines
❖ Use deep fryer only on a clean, dry, level, stable, and heat-resistant surface, away from countertop edge.
❖ Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children. Hot oil can cause serious and painful
❖ 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.
❖ To avoid the risk of electrocution or electrical burns, do not let the cord or plug come in contact with water or other
❖ Use only a good, reliable brand of vegetable shortening or cooking oil for deep frying. Deep frying foods in butter,
margarine, olive oil, or animal fat is not recommended because of lower smoking temperatures.
❖ 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 a fryer be sure that the fryer is completely dry. Before placing food in
deep fryer, always remove ice crystals and excess moisture from food by patting dry with toweling.
❖ 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 the scoop provided or tongs, rather than a
fork, when turning food during frying and when removing food from oil.
❖ 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.
❖ Always remove plug from wall outlet and then from deep fryer when unit is not in use.
❖ Always allow fryer to cool completely before removing oil and before cleaning.
How To Use
Before using for the first time, wash scoop and interior of unit with warm, sudsy water and dry
thoroughly. Never immerse unit in water or other liquid, or wash in dishwasher.
1. Remove plastic cover. Unit must be cool before cover can be replaced for storage of oil.
2. Check the rubber pads on the bottom of the fryer before each use to be sure they are free of Fig. A
oil or other debris. Wipe pads with warm, soapy water if necessary. Then dry thoroughly.
3. Place deep fryer on a clean, dry, level, stable, and heat-resistant surface in center of
Electrical pins
4. Fill unit with cooking oil or shortening up to the MAX oil level line, which is located on inside
of unit (Fig. A). Never use more than six, 8-ounce cups of cooking oil or 3 pounds of shorten- Recessed
ing. Do not allow the oil to go beneath the MIN level mark. Never use any cover while oil is

5. Attach the cord to the unit by aligning the magnetic plug end of the cord assembly with the two
electrical pins located in the recessed area of the fryer base (Fig. B). When
properly aligned, the plug will magnetically attach itself to the appliance.
For proper connection, the magnetic plug end must be parallel with the
countertop (Fig. C).
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
For proper connection, the magnetic plug
causing the unit to stop heating. Avoid contact with cord during operation.
Fig. C end must be parallel with the countertop.
If contact occurs, verify that the cord is still properly connected.
6. Plug cord into a 120 volt wall outlet. The unit is now “ON” and will remain on until unplugged.
Note: As the deep fryer heats up you may hear a knocking sound; this is due to the expansion of the metal as it heats. It
is normal.
7. Preheat oil for 15 minutes.
8. Gently place 1 to 6 cups of food into unit. Use scoop to lessen spattering of hot oil.
Note: If the plug accidentally detaches from the fryer during operation, remove plug from wall outlet. Reattach the cord
following step 5 on page 2 and step 6 above. Use extreme caution as unit will be hot.
9. Occasionally stir food gently while frying to prevent foods from sticking together. Use scoop provided or other heatresistant utensil.
10. When food reaches desired brownness, use scoop to lift food out of oil (refer to the chart below for recommended cooking times). Hold scoop over the opening of the fryer for a few seconds to allow excess oil to drain. After draining food,
carefully, but promptly, move food to a conveniently located serving container, lined with absorbent paper. Season to
taste. Repeat steps 8, 9, and 10 for additional servings.
Important: Brushed stainless steel is beautiful but does require extra care. It is easily marred by any kind of oil, which
is why fingerprints are so difficult to clean. Cooking oil when dripped onto the stainless steel exterior of a hot fryer tends
to varnish and become a permanent part of the surface, which even abrasive cleaners may not be able to completely
CAUTION: To avoid risk of burns, do not touch the metal portion of the handle when unit is hot. Only the plastic grip in
the center portion of the handle may be grasped.
Care and Cleaning
1. Remove plug from wall outlet and then from deep fryer. Then, allow oil and fryer to cool completely in a safe place.
2. After unit and oil have cooled completely, cover unit with storage lid or empty cooking oil.
3. Wash unit and scoop with warm water and mild detergent. Rinse thoroughly. Never immerse unit in water or other
liquid, or wash in dishwasher.
4. If necessary, the interior and exterior of the unit can be cleaned with an abrasive cleaner, such as Cameo* copper, brass,
& porcelain cleaner and a nylon mesh cleaning pad such as Scotch-Brite* Multi-Purpose Scrub Sponge*. When using
abrasives on the exterior, be sure to scrub in the direction of the texture.
5. Do not use oven cleaners, liquid bleach, baking soda, or other caustic cleaners on the interior or exterior of the unit.
6. Dry fryer completely. Even a few drops of water in the oil can super heat and turn into a volatile steam that may cause
hot oil to spatter, boil over, or even erupt out of the deep fryer.
7. Store the cord in a clean, dry location away from metal objects. Always check the magnetic plug before use to assure
metal items have not become attached.
For foods listed below, use either prepared frozen foods or your own favorite recipes. Fry 1 to 6 cups of food at a time (for
raw fries, do not fry more than 2 cups or ½ pound at a time). The following deep frying times are approximate. Fried foods
are generally done when they are well browned.
Fried Chicken (using crispy coating recipe on page 4) Wings
Donuts* 2-4
Fish Fillets 4-8
Fish Sticks 4-6
French Fried Shrimp 4-8
Frozen Egg Rolls 4-5
Onion Rings* 2-3
Frozen French Fries 8-10
Frozen Shoestrings 7-9
Raw Fries (see information on page 4) 13-15
*These foods are best when fried in very small quantities to maintain their individual shapes. Fry approximately 3 to 4 pieces
at a time.

Raw French Fries
Cut medium potatoes, peeled if desired, into 1⁄4 to 1⁄2 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. Using the scoop slowly lower potatoes into the oil. Only fry 2 cups or 1⁄2 pound of raw fries
at a time.
Coat cheese curds or cheese cubes with milk or beer batter. Fry until golden brown, approximately 1 minute.
Sift together 1 cup flour, 1½ teaspoons baking powder, and ½ teaspoon salt. Add 2 beaten eggs and ½ cup milk. Stir until
batter is smooth. If a thinner batter is desired, add more milk.
Thoroughly combine 1½ cups flour and 1½ cups beer in a large bowl. Cover and allow batter to sit at room temperature for
3 hours or longer.
½cup milk
1 egg, beaten
Salt and Pepper
Beat milk and egg together. Combine flour and seasonings. Dip food into milk-egg mixture, then roll in seasoned flour. Fry
food according to chart.
Helpful Hints
❖ If unit fails to preheat or if the cooking process stops, check cord assembly to assure plug is properly attached to the
appliance (see Fig. C on page 2).
❖ When using the fryer for the first time, a slight odor or light smoking may occur as manufacturing residue evaporates.
This is normal during initial use.
❖ Before deep frying, always remove excess moisture or ice crystals from food by patting dry with toweling. Even small
amounts of moisture may cause the oil to spatter, pop, boil over, or erupt.
❖ When preparing your favorite recipes, fry 1 to 6 cups food, in unit, at a time. If too much food is fried at the same time,
the food will not get crisp.
❖ For breading or coating foods, use commercial breading, finely ground bread or cracker crumbs, corn meal, mixture of
corn meal and flour, pancake mix, or prepared bread mixes.
❖ Use only heat resistant utensils in the fryer as most plastics or rubber will become damaged from the hot oil. Do not
leave metal utensils in the fryer as they will become hot.
❖ After each use, strain oil through a filter or a double thickness of cheesecloth to remove the accumulated residue.
❖ It is time to replace the cooking oil if the oil is dark in color, has an unpleasant odor, smokes when it is heated, or foams
excessively during frying.
