Cooking z z z z z z z z Plug in the deep fryer. Set the temperature controller to the desired temperature depending on what you are going to cook, the indicator “POWER” comes on. When the indicator “POWER” goes out (after approx 5-7 minutes) the deep fryer has reached the corresponding temperature. Open the top lid. Attach the handle into basket. Put the food in the basket.

Preparing the food z z Whatever the recipe used, the food must be perfectly dry: this will avoid overflowing and make the oil or fat last longer. When preparing potato-based food (chips, crisps, etc.) cut them up and then wash them in cold water to remove the starch. Dry them carefully. This will stop them sticking together. 3. Cooking z z z z z Do not overfill the basket. This will cause the oil temperature dropping and make the food greasy. Do not keep oil at high temperature for long periods.

Frozen food can be cooked in the basket without being defrosted. 4. After cooking z z Oil or fat can be left in the deep fryer with its basket and lid on. It will not lose its properties.
