SAVE THESE
INSTRUCTIONS
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS
The Deep Fryer has a short cord to reduce the hazards
of becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
USE OF AN EXTENSION CORD IS NOT
RECOMMENDED WITH DEEP FRYER.
Operating the Deep Fryer and another appliance at the
same time from the same electrical circuit could cause an
electrical overload condition, which would blow the fuse
or trip the circuit breaker.
SPECIAL POLARIZED PLUG
INSTRUCTIONS
This Philips Deep Fryer has a polarized plug for an
added safety feature.
• Plug will fit into polarized outlet only one way.
• If plug does not properly fit outlet at first, reverse it.
• If plug still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician.

Important:
• Read the Instructions for Use and look at the Illustrations before
you start using the appliance.
• Clean the fryer parts as described in the "Cleaning" section.
Dry all parts thoroughly.
• Make sure all parts are completely dry before you fill the fryer with
oil or liquid fat.
• After you have used the appliance, set the temperature control to
the lowest setting “M” (turn it completely to the left). Remove the
plug from the electrical outlet and let the oil or fat cool down.
Do not move the fryer until it has cooled down sufficiently.
• Never overfill the food basket since too much food can cause the
temperature of the oil to decrease below optimal temperature for
frying and result in foods that are not as light and crispy as they
could be. Basket should only be 1/2 full of food at the most for
optimal results.

2
Wind up the cord, push it back into the storage compartment
and put the plug in the plug clip.
3
Lift the fryer by its grips.
7
Oil and Fat
It is recommended to use a good quality frying oil or liquid frying fat,
preferably vegetable oil or fat.You can also use solid frying fat, but in
that case you should melt it in a pan over low heat before using to
prevent splattering or overheating of the fat. Using butter or margarine
is not recommended due to lower smoking temperatures.
Only use types of oil or fat that are suitable for deep-frying and that
contain an antifoam agent.You can find this information on the package
or label of the oil or fat.
Never mix two different kinds of oil or fat!
Changing the oil or fat
As the oil or fat loses its favorable properties rather quickly, you should
change the oil or fat regularly.
Disposing of used oil or fat
Allow oil or fat to cool completely. Pour used oil or liquid fat back into
its original (resealable) plastic bottle.You can dispose of used solid fat
by letting it solidify in the fryer (without the basket in it) and
subsequently scooping it out of the fryer by means of a plastic or
rubber spatula and wrapping it in a newspaper. Never use metal
utensils as to prevent damaging non-stick coating.
Frying Tips
• Dry all foods before frying.
• Food should be as dry as possible before placing in basket.
• Do not add water or wet foods to cooking oils.Water will cause
oil to splatter.
For preparation times and temperature settings, see the table at the
end of this booklet.
Home-made French fries
You will make the tastiest and crispiest French fries in the following
way:
Use firm potatoes and cut them into sticks. Rinse the sticks with cold
water.
Fry the French fries twice:
• The first time for 4-6 minutes at a temperature of 320º F.
• The second time for 2-4 minutes at a temperature of 375º F.
8
Frozen food
Food from the freezer (+3.2º F to 0º F) will cool the oil or fat
considerably when it is immersed in it. Because it does not sear right
away, the food may also absorb too much oil or fat.Take the following
measures to prevent this:
Preferably allow frozen food to partly defrost at room temperature
and shake off as much ice and water as possible.
Do not fry very large quantities at one time (see the table with
preparation times and temperature settings).
Getting rid of unwanted flavors
Certain types of food, particularly fish, can give the oil or fat an
unpleasant flavor. To neutralize the taste of the oil or fat:
• Heat the oil or fat to a temperature of 300º F.
• Put two thin slices of bread or a few sprigs of parsley in the oil.
• Wait until no more bubbles appear and then scoop the bread or
the parsley out of the fryer with a spatula.
The oil or fat will now have a neutral taste again.
