Do not place the appliance against a wall or against another appliance. Leave at least 4 inches of
free space on the back and sides and 4 inches free space above the appliance.
Do not place anything on top of the appliance.
Keep the appliance and the power cord out of the reach of children. Children aged 8 and above,







Keep all food in the basket to keep it from coming into contact with the heating element.
Do not cover the air inlet or the air outlet while the unit is on.
Do not fill the pan with oil. Oil is a fire hazard.
Do not touch the inside of the appliance while it is on.
Do not leave the appliance unattended while it is cooking. While it is cooking, hot steam is
released through the air outlet. Keep your hands and face at a safe distance away from the air
outlet.
Always be careful when removing the cooking pan. Hot steam and air may
be released when you remove it from the Air Fryer.
Keep the main cord away from hot surfaces.
Any surfaces below or beneath underneath the Air Fryer may become hot
during use (Figure 2).
Immediately unplug the appliance if you see dark smoke coming out of the
Air Fryer. Wait for the smoke to stop before you remove the pan from the
appliance.
Automatic Switch-Off
Your Air Fryer has a built-in timer. The appliance will automatically shut off when the timer count
reaches zero. You can also manually switch off the Air Fryer by pressing the power button, which will
place the appliance in standby mode.
Special Cord Set Instructions
A short power supply cord is provided with your Air Fryer to reduce the risk of tripping or entanglement.
Using a longer detachable power supply cord or extension cord is not recommended for use with the Air
Fryer.
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric
shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet in only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into
the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to
modify the plug in any way. Improper use of the plug can result in electrical shock. If the power cord is
damaged, please contact customer service.

Electromagnetic Fields (EMF)
The appliance complies with all scientific standards regarding Electromagnetic fields (EMF). If used
properly, there is no evidence it will cause any harm.
Getting To Know Your Avalon Bay Air Fryer
Your Avalon Bay Air Fryer uses a unique combination of fast circulating air and an electrical heating
element that allows you to fry an assortment of delicious foods quickly, easily, and with less fat. You can
prepare a variety of foods in your Air Fryer including French fries, chicken, vegetables, and even cakes.
Any snacks that can be cooked in an oven can also be easily cooked in your Air Fryer.
Before Your First Use
1. Remove all packaging materials, stickers or labels (other than the rating label) from your Air
Fryer. Be sure all the parts (see List of Main Parts on page 4) have been included before
discarding any packaging materials. You may want to keep the box and packing materials for use
at a later date.
2. Clean the basket and pan using hot water, mild soap, and a non-abrasive sponge. The basket
and pan are also dishwasher safe.
3. Wipe the inside and outside of the appliance with a cloth. Never immerse the appliance in
water; do not let water inside the Air Fryer or it may damage its electrical and heating
components.
Assembling your Air Fryer
Since your Air Fryer uses hot air, do not fill the pan with oil or any other liquid.
Do not put anything on top of the appliance or it will disrupt airflow.
1. Place your Air Fryer on a clean, flat surface. Do not place the appliance on a NON heatresistant surface.
2. Put the basket in the pan.
3. Plug the cord into a standard electrical outlet. The LDC screen should light up, showing the
default function and settings. The control panel is shown on the next page. You are now
ready to begin hot air frying.

Operating your Air Fryer
Once your Air Fryer is assembled properly, you are ready to begin frying.
1. Carefully pull the pan out of the Air Fryer and place your food in the basket.
2. Slide the pan back into your Air Fryer. Never use the pan without the basket.
3. Do not touch the pan during or immediately after use. The pan will be very hot. Only hold the
pan by the handle.
4. Select your cooking mode for your food. There are seven modes: potato chips, ham, drumsticks,
steak, cake, shrimp and fish. To select one, press the “M” button to cycle through each mode.
Once you’ve selected the right one, push “Start” to begin cooking.
Note: Each cooking program has its own default settings, given on the next page.



The chosen function light will blink while the unit is cooking.
During cooking, the time will count down to zero from your pre-set cooking time.
If, during cooking, the basket is removed from the Air Fryer, it will enter standby mode
until the basket is replaced. At this point, the program will resume automatically.
5. To adjust the time manually, press the + or – buttons above or below the timer icon. Press the
buttons once to increase or decrease the time by one minute, or hold them down for rapid
adjustment. See Default Settings page 8, to determine the appropriate cooking time.
6. To adjust the temperature manually, press the + or – buttons above or below the temperature
icon on the control panel. Press the buttons once to increase or decrease the temperature by
10°F, or hold them down for rapid adjustment. Once the appropriate temperature has been

7. Some foods require you to shake the pan halfway through cooking. Pull the pan out of the
appliance by the handle and shake it. Then slide the pan back into your Air Fryer.
Do not press the button on the handle during shaking.
To reduce weight while shaking, you can remove the basket from the pan and shake it by itself.
To do so, place the pan on a heat-resistant surface, such as a trivet, and press the release button
on the handle.
As a reminder, set the timer for half the cooking time. When the timer bell rings, shake the food.
Don’t forget to reset the timer for the remaining cook time once you’ve put the basket back in
the Air Fryer.
8. When the timer bell chimes, the Air Fryer is done cooking. Pull out the pan and place it on a
heat-resistant surface. The fan will shut off automatically after the timer reaches zero.
9. Check your food to see if it is ready. If not, slide the pan back into the Air Fryer and set the timer
for a few extra minutes.
To remove small foods (e.g. fries), press the basket release button and lift the basket out of the
pan. The pan and the food will be hot after cooking. Depending on the type of food you were
frying, there may be some steam coming off the pan as well.
Note: Don’t turn the pan over; otherwise the oil in the bottom of the pan will drip into your
food.

10. Empty the basket into a bowl or plate. Use tongs to remove large or fragile food from the
basket. Once the basket is empty, the Air Fryer is ready to cook again. Once you’re done
cooking, clean the Air Fryer thoroughly, so it will be ready for the next time you need to use it.
Cooking Tips
You can use your Avalon Bay Air Fryer to cook many of the foods you love. This includes any meat you
usually broil, grill, or bake (like chicken or beef). You can also cook most frozen foods in your Air Fryer
too (and you don’t need to defrost them first).
Keep these tips in mind when cooking:





Smaller items usually require slightly shorter cooking times than larger items (e.g., smaller fries
will cook faster than larger fries).
Shaking smaller items halfway through cooking enhances the end result and can help prevent
unevenly fried food. Because the Rapid Air technology reheats the air inside the appliance
instantly, pulling the pan briefly out of the Air Fryer while it is cooking barely disturbs the
process.
A larger amount of food only requires a slightly longer cooking time, a smaller amount of food
only requires a slightly shorter cooking time.
Use pre-made dough to prepare filled snacks quickly and easily. Pre-made dough also requires a
shorter preparation time than homemade dough. We suggest placing a baking tin or oven dish
right in your fryer basket if to fry fragile food or filled food.
If you want crispy potatoes, cover them with a small amount of oil and cook them for a few
extra minutes.
Making Home-Made Fries
For best results, use approximately 500g of pre-baked fries in your Air Fryer at a time. To make homemade fries, however, follow the steps below:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Peel potatoes and slice them into thin (8mmx8mm) sticks.
Soak the fries in a bowl on water for at least 30 minutes before drying them with a paper towel.
Pour ½ tbsp. of olive oil into a bowl. Place the fries in the bowl and mix until coated.
Remove the sticks from the oil, letting access oil remain in the bowl, and place in the basket.
Cook using the Air Fryer as directed in Default Settings pg. 8.
Reheating Food
You can also use your Air Fryer to reheat food. Just set the temperature to 302°F and allow up to 10
minutes for your food to reheat.

Baking a Cake?
Baking a cake in your Air Fryer is easy. Just place a cake pan or oven dish directly in your Air Fryer
basket. See Default Settings pg. 8, for more information.
Foods NOT to cook in your Air Fryer
Do not prepare extremely greasy food such as sausages or bacon in your Air Fryer. Also avoid vegetables
that you usually cook or steam, such as carrots, broccoli and beans.

Caring For Your Air Fryer
Cleaning and Storage
You should thoroughly clean your Air Fryer after every use.
To preserve the non-stick coating, do not use metal kitchen utensils or abrasive cleaning
materials to clean the pan, basket, or the inside of the Air Fryer.
1. Before cleaning, unplug your Air Fryer and wait for it to cool down (about 30 minutes).
Removing the pan will help cool down your Air Fryer a little faster.
2. Wipe the outside of your Air Fryer with a damp cloth. Never use an abrasive cleaner or harsh
pad.
3. Clean the pan and basket using hot water, mild soap, and a non-abrasive sponge (the pan and
basket are also dishwasher-safe). If necessary, use a degreasing liquid to remove any remaining
dirt.

NOTE: If dirt is stuck to the basket or the bottom of the pan, fill the pan with hot water
and a mild liquid soap. Put the basket in the pan and soak for about 10 minutes.
4. Clean the inside of the appliance using hot water and a non-abrasive sponge.
5. Clean the heating element with a cleaning brush to remove any food residue.
6. Push the cord into the cord storage compartment. Fix the cord by inserting it into the cord fixing
slot.
WARNING: Never immerse the base of the Air Fryer in water or other
liquid or it may damage the multi electrical and heating components. To
prevent electric shocks or short-circuits, do not let any liquid enter the
Air Fryer.
Environmental Concerns
Do not throw your Air Fry away with the normal household waste when it is worn
out. Dispose of it at an official collection point for recycling. By doing this, you
help protect the environment (see Figure 12).

Fryer does not work
Air Fryer is not plugged in.
Put the cord into a standard electrical
outlet.
The timer has not been set
Set the timer to the required time and
press “Start.”
The pan doesn’t slide into my Air Fryer
Problem
Possible cause
Solution
Pan does not slide into
the appliance properly
There is too much food in the
basket.
Do not fill the basket beyond the MAX
indicator.
The basket was not placed in
the pan correctly.
Push the basket down into the pan
until it clicks.
White smoke is coming out of my Air Fryer
Problem
Possible cause
Solution
White smoke comes
out of the appliance
The food being cooked is too
greasy.
When frying greasy food, a large
amount of oil will leak into the pan.
The oil produces white smoke & the
pan may heat up more than usual. This
will not affect the appliance or the end
result. Ensure that the cooking
temperature remains below 356F.
The pan contains greasy
residue from a previous use.
White smoke is caused by grease
heating up in the pan. Make sure you
clean the pan properly after each use.
My food isn’t cooking correctly
Problem
Possible cause
Solution
Food is undercooked
There is too much food in the
basket.
Put smaller batches of food in the
basket. Smaller batches fry more
evenly.
The cooking temperature too
low.
Set the temperature to the required
temperature setting.
The cooking time is too short.
Set the time to the required setting.
Certain types of food require
shaking halfway through the
preparation time.
Food that lies on top of or across each
other (e.g., fries) need to be shaken
halfway through the preparation time.
Food is fried unevenly
12
http://www.avalon-bay.com
Avalon Bay Air Fryer Product Guide
Problem
Possible cause
Solution
Fried snacks are not
crispy
You used a type of snack meant
to be prepared in a traditional
deep fryer.
Use oven snacks or lightly brush some
oil onto the snacks for a crispier result.
Fresh cut fries are fried
unevenly
You did not use the right type
of potato.
Use fresh potatoes and make sure that
they stay firm during frying.
You did not soak the potato
sticks properly before frying
them.
Soak the potato sticks again to remove
starch from the outside of the sticks.
The crispiness of the fries
depends on the amount of oil
and water in the fries.
Make sure you dry the potato sticks
properly before you add the oil.
Fresh cut fries are not
crispy
Cut the potato sticks smaller.
Add slightly more oil.
