Deep frying with your new deep fryer will be even more fun than before.

Among other things, the appliance offers you the following advantages:

– a gentle fat melting stage

– thanks to exact (electronic) temperature control, the surfaces of deep fried titbits can be closed so fast that deep frying oil or fat cannot penetrate into the food you are cooking. This ensures that proteins, vitamins and minerals are retained.

– thanks to the novel installation method implemented, installation is child's play!

To ensure that you will be able to use this appliance in all its diversity, read through the operating and assembly instructions conscientiously before operating it for the first time . The instructions contain important notes on use, installation and maintenance of the appliance.

You will find notes on Page 3 that you ought to observe before operating the appliance for the first time.

The chapters entitled “Structure and operating principle" and “Operation" will tell you all the things your deep fryer is capable of doing and how the appliance is operated.

“Cleaning and care" makes sure that your appliance will stay beautiful for a long time.

And now we wish you lots of fun with your deep fryer.

Caution! Fats and oils can ignite easily if they get overheated. Keep naked lights away from the appliance! Fire risk!

Observe particular caution when working with water in the proximity of the warm appliance.

Explosion risk!

Foodstuffs that are prepared in fat and oil (e.g.

French fries) must only be prepared under constant supervision!

Caution! Over-greased filters are a fire risk if the appliance is positioned under an extractor hood or adjacent to a hob ventilator!

The appliance cover must only be placed over the deep fryer after it has cooled down. Risk of burns!

Technical modifications reserved.

1.2 Operating for the first time

Before operating the appliance for the first time, please pay attention to the following notes:

– Read through these instructions attentively before operating your appliance for the first time.

– The appliance must be installed and connected by a specialist.

– The rating plate for this appliance is included with the instructions on a separate sheet. Store the rating plate in the same location as your operating and assembly instructions.

– Remove the packaging from the appliance and dispose of it properly. The packaging consists of foil and cardboard.

Pay attention to the fact that there are accessories in the base of the packaging. Keep packaging elements away from children.

– Thoroughly clean the appliance and accessories before using them for the first time.

This will eliminate any 'newness’ smells and soiling (see chapter entitled Cleaning and care).

– Before operating the appliance for the first time, make sure that the mains connection is in proper working order.

1.3 About use

The appliance is intended solely for use in the household and must not be put to any other uses.

Use the appliance to prepare meals only. It must not be used to heat up the room in which it is installed.

Keep ventilation openings open (doors, extractor hoods and windows).

Do not store any combustible items inside the appliance. During operation, only ever leave the items you need inside the appliance.

Only ever use deep frying inserts (deep frying baskets) that are intended for the purpose.

The (heating) symbol in the control panel goes off as soon as the set temperature has been reached.

Return the “Temperature" knob to “0" after deep frying.

The appliance must not be operated empty (i.e.

without oil or fat; do not use water!). If the appliance is operated empty, it will switch off automatically and the (limiter) symbol will appear in the display. If this is the case, turn the

“Temperature" knob to the 0 position. Wait until the

(limiter) symbol goes off again.

Note: If the (limiter) symbol appears in the display, there may be many reasons for this (see

Structure and operating principle).

Top up oil or fat as soon as it is below the minimum level (bottom marking). Caution: there is a risk of fires if the filling should drop below the bottom marking!

Observe caution with oils and fats. They may overheat and burn easily.

Old/soiled fat must be replaced if it becomes brown, has an unpleasant smell and/or smokes prematurely. Fire risk!

If a fire should break out, remove the mains plug and place the lid on the deep fryer. Never extinguish with water!

Switch off the extractor hood immediately because the draught will otherwise intensify the fire!

The deep frying oil/fat will foam over if foodstuffs that are too wet or if excessive quantities are inserted. Risk of burns!

In the event of malfunctions , first of all check the household fuses. If the problem has nothing to do with the power supply, please contact your specialist dealer or your local Gaggenau after-sales service.

Built-in temperature protection prevents overheating of the appliance and of build-in furniture.

Clean the appliance at regular intervals and also replace the deep frying oil or fat at regular intervals because soiling causes the deep frying oil or fat to become more easily ignitable.

Do not use the lid during deep frying. The lid must only be placed over the deep fryer after it has cooled down fully.

Caution: never use the glass cover of the steam cooker for the deep fryer.

Please inform your local Gaggenau after-sales service if the (limiter) symbol does not go off after a few minutes.

During deep frying , the heat that is generated by the appliance is transmitted by the fat to the food you are cooking. When this fast cooking method is employed, a tasty crust is formed around the cooked food. The deep frying temperature range lies between 320 and 360 °F. The maximum temperature is 380 °F. A higher temperature would result in a consistency change in the deep frying fat or oil.

The two marks on the rear of the deep fryer indicate the maximum and minimum levels for the deep-frying oil or fat. The oil/fat level should always be between the two marking lines (Fig. 5).

The food to be fried should always be completely covered by the deep-frying oil or fat; if this is impossible, turn the food after half the frying time.

Any water contained in the food sinks to the bottom of the Gaggenau Electric Fryer into so-called cold oil zone (see 1 in Fig. 6). This prevents the oil frothing over. Also, any particles of food which break away during frying fall through the basket and sink to this cold zone.

The lower temperature in this zone prevents the oil breaking down and considerably prolongs the time for which the oil or fat can be used.

The foaming edge (see 2 in Fig. 6) serves to limit the foam that occurs during deep frying.

Numerous safeguards serve to protect you. Turn the “Temperature" knob back to 0 if the (limiter) symbol should appear on the display.

Possible causes:

– No fat/oil in the deep frying tub or not enough.

– The deep fryer has been switched on with the tubular heating element tilted out.

– The (limiter) symbol goes off as soon as the temperature on the heating element drops below a critical value. Pour fat/oil into the deep frying tub. The appliance can then be easily operated again.

– Set the required temperature with the temperature control knob. The required temperature has been reached as soon as the

(heating) symbol goes off.

Important:

Only ever switch on the appliance after having placed deep frying fat or oil in the deep frying tub.

Deep frying fat must be melted (see page 9)!

– Briefly dip the deep frying basket into the hot fat or oil. The optimum quantity is 3-3.5 l of oil (or

3 kg of fat).

Moist foods such as fish, shellfish, pieces of meat, vegetables or fruit slices must be thoroughly dried.

– Place the food in the deep frying basket and fry it.

The basket has a capacity of 500 g.

– When the food is ready (see Table 7.1), take out the deep frying basket and shake it lightly. This will make sure that the fat or oil can drip of faster.

Note:

The deep frying times stated are only approximate values; more or less times and energy may be required, depending on the condition of the food and your own personal taste.

Important!

Do not salt or spice the food above the deep fryer, since this would flavour the oil or fat and, consequently, the next food fried.

Please clean the appliance thoroughly before operating it for the first time.

Cleaning the deep frying tub:

– Take out the deep frying basket and tilt up the heating element. Clamp the heating element onto the deep frying basket suspension (Fig. 16).

– Pour approximately four litres of water with detergent into the empty tub.

– Tilt the heating element back into the frying tub and heat up the appliance to the fat melting stage.

– The water is drained off through the oil drain valve, which is located under the funnel-shaped base of the deep frying tub as follows: Unscrew the plastic cap from the drain valve and open the oil drain valve by turning the handle down

(Fig. 17).

– Use a temperature-resistant bucket with a capacity of at least 10 litres to collect the water.

– Rinse the appliance with hot water and rub it dry.

Close the oil drain valve again (turn the handle up) and screw on the plastic cap.

Note: The deep frying tub should not be treated with stainless steel cleaners or care agents because, in most cases, these are not neutral as far as foodstuffs are concerned.

Clean the cover and the deep frying basket suspension with hot rinsing detergent solution before operating the appliance for the first time and after every use. Clean the deep frying basket in a dishwasher.

Clean operator controls with a moist cloth and gentle rinsing detergent only and wipe them dry with a soft dry cloth. Do not use any abrasive sponges or abrasive or caustic cleaning agents. Do not use any commercially available stainless steel cleaners as these may be aggressive to the printed markings.

Caution! Risk of burns!

Water must not be allowed to drip into the hot fat!

5. Draining the deep frying oil

Fig. 18

Draining the deep frying oil and fat

Drain used oil only after it has cooled down.

Melt used fat at the melting stage. In the cold oil zone, the fat melts only slowly.

Use a temperature-resistant bucket with a capacity of at least 10 litres to collect the oil/fat.

Water that collects in the cold oil zone can also be drained by way of the oil drain plug.

The deep frying oil or fat is drained off through the oil drain valve, which is located under the funnel-shaped base of the deep frying tub: First unscrew the plastic cap from the drain valve and open the drain valve by pulling the handle down

(Fig. 18).

Dispose of used oil and fat in accordance with local regulations.

13

6. Maintenance

The appliance must be disconnected from the power supply during all repair work.

7.3 Tips and tricks

– If you have large quantities of food to deep fry, you are advised to remove the basket from the tub after 1-2 minutes to allow the oil or fat to assume the selected temperature faster. The deep fried food will also become crisper.

– After every use of the deep fryer, remove any resulting remainders of food from the oil or fat.

– Replace the deep frying oil or fat completely if the food you are deep frying no longer becomes crispy despite having set the correct temperature or if the oil or fat goes brown.

– Only ever use fat for deep frying that is devoid of water and protein. Such fats have a high smoking point. This means that such a fat is a heat-resistant fat.

– The following foodstuffs are suitable for deep frying: small pieces of meat and fish, vegetables, potatoes, pastries, fruit and breaded foodstuffs.

– Do not deep fry very large quantities at once as the fat would cool down too much.

– After cooling down, close the lid. This is necessary for safety reasons and prevents dirt from falling into the fat.

Would you have known?

– With your deep fryer you have a possibility of preparing tasty meals.

– Valuable ingredients are retained and serve to protect your health.

– During deep frying (from 340 °F), oil and fat takes on neither an odour nor taste. So, you can deep fry fish and fruits straight after one another.

Residues (bread crumb coating etc.) must be removed.

– Remove ice from deep frozen foodstuffs. Fill the basket outside of the deep fryer.

– Allow deep frozen fish to thaw slightly. This will shorten the deep frying time and the fish will take on a lovely golden yellow colouring.

– Peel zucchini and aubergines before coating them with bread crumbs. The bread crumb coating will then adhere better.

– Cut into cutlets several times on the bone before deep frying them. This facilitates uniform deep frying.

– Moist or frozen food leads to particularly hefty foaming of the fat when it is inserted. Slowly lower the filled basket several times. This prevents overflowing of the fat.

– Dab freshly deep fried food with a kitchen cloth.

– Set the recommended temperature.

The surface will crust too fast if the frying fat is too hot . Its interior will remain raw, though.

The food will take on too much fat if the fat is too cold .

– If the fat is at the right temperature, its pores will close swiftly when it is dipped in and proteins will form a protective crust. So, only a small amount of fat is able to penetrate into it. Also dry freshly deep fried food with a kitchen cloth. This reduces the amount of fat even more.

– As the result of the short heating up time, valuable and vital nutrients such as vitamins and minerals are retained.
