Read the instructions, keep them safe, pass them on if you pass the
fryer on. Remove all packaging before use.
A IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Follow basic safety precautions, including:
1 This appliance can be used by children aged
from 8 years and above and persons with
reduced physical, sensory or mental
capabilities or lack of experience and
knowledge if they have been supervised/
instructed and understand the hazards
involved.
•Children shall not play with the appliance.
•Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be
done by children unless they are older than 8
and supervised.
•Keep the appliance and cable out of reach of
children under 8 years.
2Don’t use the fryer with an external timer or
remote control.
3If the cable is damaged, return the fryer, to
avoid hazard.
hThe surfaces of the appliance will get hot.
lDon’t immerse the appliance in liquid.
4 Don’t lean or reach over the fryer while the oil is hot.
5Don’t carry or pass anything through the space over or near the
fryer – if anything drops into the fryer, hot oil will splash out.
6Don’t move or carry the fryer if it contains hot oil. Let it cool first.
3
JSteam will billow out as you open the lid, so stand back before
pressing the lid button E.
7 Raise and lower the basket with the lid closed.
8Don’t use the fryer without first filling with good quality cooking
oil to between the MIN (2 litres) and MAX (2.5 litres) marks inside
the bowl.
CIf the oil level is below the MIN mark, you may damage the fryer.
If above the MAX mark, hot oil may escape, causing damage and
injury.
9Position the fryer so that the basket handle doesn’t extend up to
or over the edge of the work surface, where it might be caught
accidentally when passing.
JDon’t put the fryer beneath cupboards, shelves, or anything that
could be damaged by the heat and steam it gives off.
10 Keep the fryer and cable away from the edge of the work surface.
11 Don’t leave the fryer unattended while plugged in.
12 Unplug the fryer when not in use.
13 Close the lid when cooking, and when the oil is cooling.
14 Don’t put anything on top of the fryer while it’s in use.
15 Before using any aerosol spray in the kitchen, or any part of the
house where the spray might drift into the kitchen, check that
the lid is closed, to avoid contaminating the oil.
16 Don’t use accessories or attachments unless we supply them.
17 Don’t use the fryer for anything other than heating cooking oil
for deep frying.
18 Don’t use the fryer if it’s damaged or malfunctions.
household use only
U BEFORE USING FOR THE FIRST TIME
• Clean the fryer, to remove manufacturing dust, grease, etc.
CPREPARATION
1 Sit the fryer on a stable, level, heat-resistant surface, at least 75cm
(30”) above the floor, with at least 5cm (2”) space all round it.
2Keep it away from cupboards, curtains, anything combustible,
and anything that might be damaged by heat or steam.
4
3With the basket in the fryer, and the basket handle unfolded,
position the fryer so the basket handle doesn’t extend up to or
over the edge of the work surface, where it might be caught
accidentally when passing.
4 Line a colander with kitchen paper, to drain the food after frying.
5Fetch your oven gloves – and use them! They protect your hands
from heat. They protect them from drips and splashes too.
CFILLING
6Stand back, and press the lid button E, to open the lid.
7 If the bowl is empty, fill with liquid cooking oil to between the
MIN (2 litres) and MAX (2.5 litres) marks. If it already contains oil,
then check the level and top up as necessary.
8Don’t use solid cooking oil, fat, butter, margarine, or olive oil.
Olive oil generally contains too much water, and it’s smoking
point is a bit low for deep frying. Buy a good quality liquid
cooking oil suitable for deep frying, like sunflower or corn oil.
9Don’t mix oils of different types, as they’ll have different
temperature characteristics.
C HEATING THE OIL
10 Close the lid before you start to heat the oil.
11 Check that the switch is off (press 0).
12 Put the plug into a socket (switch the socket on, if it’s switchable).
13 Turn the temperature control to the required temperature.
14Press 1 to switch on.
15 The power light will come on.
16 The thermostat light will come on, to show the fryer is heating up,
then cycle on and off as the thermostat operates.
17 When the thermostat light goes out, the fryer has reached the set
temperature, and you can start frying.
C PREPARE THE FOOD
18 Cut food into uniformly sized pieces.
19 Coat wet food (e.g. fish, fruit) with flour, crumbs, batter, etc.
20Don’t defrost food in the fryer. Any food other than pre-cooked,
quick-frozen foods (e.g. scampi in breadcrumbs, chicken pieces
in batter) must be fully defrosted before putting into the fryer.
5
21When frying pre-packed or pre-cooked frozen foods, follow the
instructions on the packet.
22Before frying raw vegetables (e.g. chips), dry them with kitchen
paper or a tea towel.
C LOADING THE BASKET
23Put a finger under the end of the handle and lift it through about
90 degrees, till it locks. This raises the basket out of the oil.
JSteam will billow out as you open the lid, so stand back before
pressing the lid button E.
24Stand back, and press the lid button E, to open the lid.
25Put the prepared food pieces in the basket.
26Try not to put more than two layers of food in the basket. If you
need to fry more, do it in batches.
27Close the lid and press down till the latch clicks, locking it shut.
C FRYING THE FOOD
28Press the handle release button, and lower the handle slowly.
This will lower the basket into the oil.
29The oil will foam as it comes into contact with water from the
food. As long as the foam doesn’t threaten to overflow the bowl,
this should not be a cause for alarm.
30If the foam threatens to overflow the bowl, raise the handle, to
lift the basket out of the oil, then turn to “problems” on page 11.
31Stay in the kitchen while the fryer is plugged in, and keep an eye
on the frying process.
32Don’t lean or reach over the fryer while the oil is hot.
CDONE?
33When the food has cooked, press 0, to switch off.
34Put a finger under the end of the handle and lift it through about
90 degrees, till it locks. This raises the basket out of the oil.
JSteam will billow out as you open the lid, so stand back before
pressing the lid button E.
35Stand back, and press the lid button E, to open the lid.
36Put on an oven glove, then use the handle to lift the basket
straight up, out of its mounts in the front of the fryer.
37Empty the food into the colander, to drain further before serving.
6
38Return the empty basket to the fryer, align the tab in front of the
handle with the slot in the front of the fryer, and slide the basket
down, into its mounts in the front of the fryer.
39Don’t lower the basket while the lid is open. The lid is there to
protect you from the hot oil.
40Close the lid and press down till the latch clicks into place.
41 Press the handle release button, and lower the handle slowly.
This will lower the basket into the oil.
42Finished? – unplug the fryer and let it cool before cleaning.
43Continue frying? – check the oil level and top up as necessary.
C FRYING GUIDE
44Adding food to the oil reduces the temperature of the oil.
45If you add a little food, the temperature will recover quickly, and
the food will be cooked properly.
46When you put food into the appliance, you should see bubbles
given off.
47This is steam, formed when the moisture inside the food heats up.
48The steam coming out of the food prevents oil from soaking into
the food.
49The food cooks uniformly – firm and crisp.
50If you add too much food, the temperature will not recover, and
your food will absorb oil.
CCOATINGS
51Coat all foods, except those high in starch, like potatoes and
doughnuts. The coating protects the food, helps prevent juices
leaking into the oil, and gives a crisp, tasty result. Generally,
coatings won’t stick to frozen foods.
seasoned flour
52Thicker coatings don’t stick well to wet/damp foods, so coat
them first in seasoned flour. Use on its own to coat small whole
oily fish like whitebait.
egg and breadcrumbs
53Popular on fish, chicken, and scotch eggs, it gives an attractive,
crisp, crunchy exterior. Ideal for foods that are to be served cold,
as it stays crisp for hours.
7
• coat in seasoned flour, to dry the food.
• dip in beaten egg, then in breadcrumbs – repeat till fully coated
• press well, then shake off any excess.
• Fresh breadcrumbs give a rough appearance. Make dry raspings
or breadcrumbs by baking scraps of bread till golden, then crush
or process to a fine crumb.
basic batter
100g self raising flour
pinch of salt
cold water
Just before it’s needed, mix the salt and flour with enough water to
form a smooth cream that will coat the back of a spoon.
basic fritter batter
100g self-raising flour
5ml (1tsp) cooking oil
pinch of salt
cold water
Sift the flour and salt into a bowl. Stir in the oil. Just before it’s
needed, stir in enough water to form a smooth batter.
posh fritter batter
100g plain flour
1 egg, separated
150ml liquid
15ml (1tbsp) cooking oil
pinch of salt
Sift the flour and salt into a bowl. Stir in the egg yolk, then the liquid.
Beat in the oil. Just before it’s needed, whisk the egg white and fold
into the batter.
crispy Chinese batter
75g cornflour
1 large egg
10ml (2tsp) baking powder
5ml (1tsp) cooking oil
good pinch of salt
cold water
8
Mix the egg, cornflour, salt and oil with enough cold water to form a
creamy base on which to add either egg and breadcrumbs or batter.
It helps to hold the other coatings firmly to the food.
C FRYING TIMES
Use these times purely as a guide. Check that food is cooked
through before serving. If in doubt, cook it a bit more. Chips and
other veg should be crisp. Cook meat, poultry, and any derivatives
(mince, burgers, etc.) till the juices run clear. Cook fish till the flesh is
opaque throughout.
chips (french fries)
Use a chipping potato, like King Edward, Cara, Maris Piper, Romano
or Desirée.
• Peel, cut, rinse, drain, and dry thoroughly. Don’t put more than
two layers of chips in the basket at a time. For best results, fry in
two stages:
stage 1 fry for 5-10 minutes (depending on quantity) at 170°C.
When the chips reach pale gold, and the outside is firm, lift
the basket out of the oil, and let the chips drain and cool
stage 2 fry for 2-4 minutes at 190°C. When golden brown and crisp,
remove from the oil, and drain in a colander lined with
kitchen paper.
frozen chips (french fries)
Follow the directions on the package.
other vegetables
Onion rings, cauliflower florets, carrots, mushrooms, can be fried,
fresh or frozen, and should be coated.
frozen food (small pieces in batter, breadcrumbs, etc.)
• Frozen food cools oil quickly, so fry a single layer at a time..
• Keep the pieces apart, or they’ll stick together.
• Shake off excess ice or water before adding the food to the oil.
• Use the highest temperature setting, and lower the basket slowly
into the oil, to reduce foaming.
• For pre-packed food, follow the instructions on the package.

CPROBLEMS
63If the oil foams and threatens to overflow, there’s too much food
in the basket (take some out), the food is too moist (dry it a bit
and try again), or the oil is old or contaminated (replace it).
64Every time oil is heated, it deteriorates.
65Every time food is put into it, moisture, particles of food and fat,
flour and spices from coatings, water from frozen foods, cause
further deterioration.
66Particles blacken, burn, and stick to the next batch of food,
altering its look and taste. Filtering can alleviate this a bit.
67Pre-cooked and oven chips have a coating of oil from the
pre-cooking process. This will thicken and discolour the oil in
your fryer.
68If you fry coated foods often, it’s worth keeping two lots of oil,
one for coated foods and one for “oil-friendly” foods. Keep them
in separate, labelled containers.
69Even filtered oil will be past its best after 10 to 12 uses. It may
look OK, but it’ll already have affected the quality and taste of
your food.
70As a rough guide, if you notice a marked improvement in flavour
after changing the oil, you should have changed it earlier.
71Don’t top up oil that’s past its best. You’re just wasting new oil.
72Switch off, let the fryer cool down fully, then remove the old oil,
clean the fryer, and fill it with fresh, new oil.
73Don’t pour old oil down the sink or toilet. This can cause
blockages.
74 Don’t put it in the wheelie bin. When the crusher on the dustcart
operates, it’ll burst the container and the oil will spread over the
street.
75Your Local Authority will have a depot where old oil can be taken
for recycling or environmentally friendly disposal.
11
C THERMAL CUT-OUT
76The deep fryer is fitted with a thermal cut-out. If it overheats, and
the thermostat fails to switch off, the thermal cut-out will cut the
power to the element. This is not self-resetting. If the thermal
cut-out operates, get in touch with Customer Service
Department, so that the cause may be investigated, and
rectified/repaired as appropriate.
C CARE AND MAINTENANCE
1 Unplug the fryer after use, before moving and before cleaning.
2Let it cool down fully before cleaning and before storing away.
3If you intend to move the fryer without emptying it, take care
– it’ll be heavy.
4 Don’t put the deep fryer in water or any other liquid.
5Don’t put the deep fryer in a dishwasher.
6Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.
7 Cover the work surface generously with kitchen paper (at least
three layers thick).
8You’ll need a suitable container (5 litre) for the used cooking oil. If
the container isn’t wide-necked, use a wide-necked funnel.
9If you want to filter the oil at the same time, support a fine sieve
over a wide-necked container, or fit the funnel with a filter paper.
10 Press the latch on the filter cover in towards the cover, then lift
the cover out of the top of the lid.
11 Remove the filter – don’t wash it, just leave it to dry out. If it’s
been used more than about 60 times, replace it with a fresh one.
12 Put a finger under the end of the handle and lift it through 90
degrees, till it locks in the raised position. This raises the basket
out of the oil.
13 Open the lid, and lift it straight up and out of its mounts.
14 Use the handle to lift the basket straight up, out of its mounts in
the front of the fryer.
C THE BOWL
15 If you’re using a funnel, fit it to the oil container.
16 Lift the fryer, and pour the oil, via the pouring lip, into the
container or funnel.
12
17 If you’re filtering at the same time, you’ll need to pour the oil a
little at a time.
CCLEANING
18 To avoid the build up of jelly-like deposits, clean the fryer every
few uses. If you leave it too long, solid layers of oil will build up.
19 Wash the lid, filter cover, and basket in warm soapy water, rinse
thoroughly and leave to dry.
20Wipe the inside of the bowl with kitchen paper. You may remove
stubborn deposits with a dab of washing-up liquid.
21If you use washing-up liquid inside the bowl, make sure you
remove all trace of it, or it’ll taint your food.
22Wipe all other surfaces with a damp cloth.
CDISHWASHER
23You may wash the basket in a dishwasher.
24If you use a dishwasher, the harsh environment inside the
dishwasher will affect the surface finishes. The damage should be
cosmetic only, and should not affect the operation of the fryer.
C DRYING THE LID
25After washing, stand the lid sideways, at an angle, like a ladder
against a wall, to drain thoroughly.
26The underside of the lid should be facing the “wall”.
27Leave it in a warm kitchen for at least 12 hours to drain.
28Check that there is no moisture left in or around the lid before
replacing it on the fryer.
29Moisture will make the hot oil foam, and maybe even overflow.
CREASSEMBLY
30Before reassembly, shake the lid to check whether there’s any
water still inside it. If there is, leave it to drain properly.
31Lower the lid into the lid mounts on the rear of the fryer.
32Slide the basket down into its mounts on the front of the fryer.
33Close the lid.
34Press the handle release button, and lower the handle.
35Replace the filter, with the black filter on top.
36Replace the filter cover and press down to secure it in place.
13
C CABLE STORAGE
37You may wind the cable round the cable storage at the rear of
the fryer.
38Unwind the cable fully before use.
CDISCOLOURATION
39With use, the basket and element will discolour. This is inevitable,
harmless, and won’t affect the operation of the fryer.
