Important Fryer Guidelines
Fig. A3
uUse deep fryer only on a clean, dry, level, stable, and heat-resistant surface, away
from countertop edge.
uClose supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children. Hot oil can cause serious and painful burns.
uTo avoid the risk of electrocution or severe disfiguring electrical burns, do not let children handle or put electrical cords or plugs in
their mouths.
uTo avoid the risk of electrocution or electrical burns, do not let the control unit, cord, or plug come in contact with water or other
liquid.
uNever use the deep fryer without the removable pot.
uCAUTION: 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 the removable pot be sure that the pot and all parts are COMPLETELY dry. Before
placing food in deep fryer, always remove ice crystals and excess moisture from food by patting dry with toweling.
uNever use the deep fryer without oil or with insufficient oil. Failure to fill fryer with oil to the minimum (MIN) fill level will cause
overheating and damage to the product. Also never exceed the maximum (MAX) fill level. Using more than the maximum amount
2
may cause the oil to boil over the top of the fryer. The MIN and MAX fill levels are embossed inside the removable pot (Fig. A1,
page 2). The maximum amount of oil for this fryer is 5 quarts and the minimum amount is 3½ quarts.
uUse vegetable oil for deep frying, such as corn, sunflower, peanut, or soybean. Deep frying foods in olive oil is not recommended
because it has a lower smoking temperature.
uDo not use solid fat (shortening, butter, margarine, lard). Solid fat will not melt uniformly and will cause severe smoking.
It may also cause the unit to overheat resulting in the reset button tripping. In addition, solid fat will solidify once it has cooled
making it very difficult to remove or insert the control assembly.
uDo not use cover while frying french fries and other high moisture foods.
uUse 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 a slotted spoon or tongs, rather than a fork, when turning food
during frying and also when removing food from oil.
uUse 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.
uAlways remove plug from wall outlet and then from deep fryer when unit is not in use.
uAlways allow fryer to cool completely before removing any parts, before removing oil, and before cleaning.

the control unit with the two tracks on the back of the base (Fig. E). Slide the control
assembly down (Fig. F) as far as it goes making sure both guides are in the tracks.
Note: The appliance will only operate when both guides are properly positioned in the
tracks.
Tracks
4.Fill removable pot with cooking oil up to the MAX level marking, which is located
on the inside of the removable pot (Fig. A1, page 2). Your fryer will need approximately 5 quarts of cooking oil. The amount of oil must always be between the MAX
and MIN level markings inside the removable pot (Fig. A1). Never exceed the MAX level mark.
Guides

5.Place the cover on the deep fryer.
6.Attach the cord to the unit by aligning the magnetic plug end with the two electrical pins located on
the back of the control unit (Fig. A3, page 2). The plug can be attached in either direction.
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 causing the unit to stop heating. Avoid contact with
cord during operation. If contact occurs, verify that the cord is still properly connected.
7.Plug cord into a 120VAC electrical wall outlet only. Always make sure fryer and cord are out of reach
of children.
8.Turn the thermostatic control to the desired temperature (see page 5 for proper cooking temperatures). The recommended setting
for most frying is 375˚. While oil is heating, the signal light will be illuminated.
3
9.When the selected temperature is reached, the signal light will go out. (Preheat time is approximately 20 minutes.)
10.While oil is heating, prepare food for cooking.
Note: The black cover vents will expand and appear to change shape when the fryer is heating. When the cover cools, the vents
will contract and appear to return to their original position. Both the expansion and contraction are normal.
11.Assemble basket handles for frying, see page 3.
To insure against accidental detachment of handles from baskets during use, always make sure both pegs are in the bracket holes
and the handle bars are in the brackets (Fig. C and D, page 3).
12.Place baskets on countertop and fill each basket up to ¾ full with food. (For raw fries, only fill basket ½ full.) Before deep frying,
remove excess moisture from food by blotting with toweling—moist foods cause excess foaming and spattering.
Note: Fryer may be used with one or two baskets.
13. Remove cover.
14.Attach either one or both of the filled fry baskets to the removable pot using the drain hooks. If using just one basket, place it on
either the right or left side. Then position cover over basket or baskets with cover vents away from basket handles. Slowly lower
the filled baskets one at a time into the preheated oil until the bottom of the basket rests on top of the heating element. If frying
french fries or other high moisture foods, immediately remove cover after lowering baskets into oil.
For crisper foods, fry without the cover.
Warning: To prevent the risk of severe personal injury or property damage, use caution when cooking with hot oil.
15.Begin timing. Refer to page 5 for recommended times.
Caution: It is normal for steam to escape from the cover vents during frying. To prevent steam burns keep hands and face
away from the vents.
16.When frying time has elapsed, check that the food is golden brown. Then lift the baskets and hook them onto the fryer rim to allow
oil to drain from food.
17.Empty the food onto absorbent paper. Season to taste.
18.If frying additional food, repeat steps 12 through 17. If signal light is on, allow oil to reheat until signal light goes out.
19.When frying is completed, remove plug from wall outlet and then from deep fryer. Allow oil and fryer to cool completely before
removing control assembly and before cleaning.
Helpful Hints for Deep Frying
uIf unit fails to preheat or if the cooking process stops:
1.Check cord assembly to assure magnetic plug is attached to the appliance and the cord is plugged into the wall outlet.
2.Check to see that both guides on the front of the control unit are properly positioned in the tracks on the back of the base (see
Fig. E and Fig. F, page 3).
3.The reset button may have tripped. The deep fryer is equipped with a sensor which will automatically shut the unit off if it is
heated without oil or water or with insufficient oil or water. Older oil that has become thick and solid fats may not conduct heat
well and may also cause the sensor to trip and the unit to shut off. Should any of these things occur, unplug and allow the unit to
cool. Correct the cause of overheating. Then with the tip of a pen, press the red RESET button on the back of the control unit
(see Fig. A3, page 2). The unit will not operate until it is reset. Before plugging the unit back in, make sure there is sufficient oil
or water in the fryer, or if the oil is old, replace the oil with fresh oil.
uWhen using fryer for the first time, a slight odor or light smoking may occur as manufacturing residue evaporates. This is normal
during initial use.
uFry foods of equal size and thickness as they will fry more evenly and at the same speed.
uDo not fill the baskets more than ¾ full for most foods. For raw fries, do not fill basket more than ½ full. If too much food is fried at
the same time, the food will not get crisp.
uThe black cover vents will expand and appear to change shape when the fryer is heating. When the cover cools, the vents will
contract and appear to return to their original position. Both the expansion and contraction are normal.
uFor crisper foods, fry without the cover.
uBefore deep frying, always remove excess moisture or ice crystals from food by blotting with toweling. Moist foods may cause
excess foaming, spattering, and crackling.
uWhen breading foods, use commercial breading, finely ground bread or cracker crumbs, corn meal, a mixture of corn meal and
flour, pancake mix, or prepared bread mixes.
uUse only heat resistant utensils in the fryer as most plastic or rubber will become damaged from the hot oil. Do not leave metal
utensils in the fryer as they will become hot.
4
uFoods that are battered may stick to the baskets; therefore, you may wish to fry these types of foods without the baskets. If,
however, you want to use the baskets, lower the baskets into the oil before placing battered foods in the oil. Coated or breaded
foods can be fried with or without the baskets. When using the fryer without the baskets, a heat resistant scoop may be used to add
and/or remove foods.
uAfter each use, strain oil through a filter or a double thickness of cheesecloth to remove the accumulated residue.
uThe number of times the cooking oil can be reused will depend on the food that is fried in it. For example, the oil will need to be
replaced more often if fish or food coated with bread or cracker crumbs is fried frequently.
uThe longer oil is heated, the more rapidly it deteriorates. Avoid preheating longer than necessary and turn off the fryer once the last
batch of food has been removed.
uIt is time to replace the cooking oil if any of the following occur: the oil is dark in color, has an unpleasant odor, smokes when it is
heated, or foams excessively during frying.

Recipes
Raw French Fries (Double Fry Method)
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. Fill the baskets ½ rather than ¾ full. Slowly
lower the filled baskets into the oil.
Fry at 350˚ for 3 to 4 minutes until fries are cooked through but not browned. Drain; let stand to
cool for at least 10 minutes, but not more than 2 hours. Just before serving, fry potatoes at 375˚ for
10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

How To Use for Steaming and Boiling
1.Follow steps 1 through 3 on page 3.
Note: To avoid steam damage to cabinets when using the steaming and boiling function, position the deep fryer so that it is not
directly under cabinets.
2.For boiling, fill removable pot with water up to the MAX level marking, which is located on the inside of the removable pot
(Fig. A1, page 2). Your fryer will need approximately 5 quarts of water for boiling. Never exceed the MAX level mark.
For steaming, fill removable pot with water up to the MIN level marking, which is located on the inside of the removable pot
(Fig. A1, page 2). Your fryer will need approximately 4 quarts of water for steaming. Do not use less than the minimum.
3.Attach the cord to the unit by aligning the magnetic plug end with the two electrical pins located on the back of the control unit
(Fig. A3, page 2). The plug can be attached in either direction.
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 causing the unit to stop heating. Avoid contact with cord during operation. If contact occurs, verify that the
cord is still properly connected.
4.Plug cord into a 120VAC electrical wall outlet only. Always make sure fryer and cord are out of reach of children.
5.Turn the thermostatic control to 300˚ and place the cover on the deep fryer.
6.While water is heating, prepare food for cooking.
Note: The black cover vents will expand and appear to change shape when the fryer is heating. When the cover cools, the vents
will contract and appear to return to their original position. Both the expansion and contraction are normal.
7.Assemble basket handles for cooking, see page 3.
To insure against accidental detachment of handles from baskets during use, always make sure both pegs are in the bracket holes
and the handle bars are in the brackets (Fig. C and D, page 3).
8.Place baskets on countertop and fill each basket up to ¾ full with food. Do not exceed 1½ pounds per basket.
Note: Unit may be used with one or two baskets.
9.When water begins to boil (approximately 12 to 17 minutes), remove cover and attach either one or both of the filled baskets to
the removable pot using the drain hooks. If using just one basket, place it on either the right or left side. Then position cover over
basket or baskets with cover vents away from basket handles.
If steaming, leave basket hooked on removable pot.
If boiling, slowly lower the filled baskets one at a time into the water until the bottom of the basket rests on top of the heating
element.
10.Begin timing. Refer to page 8 for recommended times.
Caution: It is normal for steam to escape from the cover vents during boiling and steaming. To prevent steam burns keep hands and
face away from the vents.
11.When cooking time has elapsed, remove cover and then remove baskets from fryer if the food was steamed. If food was boiled, lift
the baskets and hook them onto the fryer rim to allow food to drain.

Care and Cleaning
1.After unit and oil have cooled completely, carefully lift control assembly out of fryer and wipe with a damp cloth to clean. Never
immerse the control assembly in water or wash in a dishwasher.
2.Then, grabbing the cutouts on the sides of the removable pot (see Fig. A1, page 2), carefully lift the pot out of the deep fryer.
If you plan to reuse the cooking oil, it is recommended that you strain the oil to remove any food particles. Then store the oil in a
tightly sealed container and keep where it will not be exposed to heat or direct light.
3.Wash the removable pot, fry/steam baskets, fryer cover, and base in dishwasher or in warm, sudsy water.
Important: To prevent damage to the removable pot, cover, or base, do not use steel wool scouring pads, abrasive kitchen cleaners,
bleach, vinegar, lemon juice, or other acid-based cleaners. When cleaning in the dishwasher, do not use dishwasher rinse aids or
hard water deposit removers, such as LemiShine® The Hard Water Expert™*. Do not use bleaching agents to clean the fry/steam
basket.
If desired, the basket handles may be removed for cleaning. Squeeze the drain hooks and fold the handle into the basket until the
handle bars are out of the brackets. Continue squeezing to remove both pegs from the bracket holes. After cleaning, reattach handle
making sure both pegs are in the bracket holes and the handle bars are in the brackets (see Fig. D, page 3). Fold handle into basket
for storage (see Fig. B1, page 3).
Note: Your fryer has a grease filter in the cover. The filter does not need replacing.
