and place it in the bowl containing the egg and cream mixture. Place the flour, salt,
pepper, paprika, and cayenne in a separate mixing bowl. Remove a handful of the
calamari from the egg and cream mixture, allowing any extra to drip back into the bowl.

TIPS AND HINTS FOR DEEF FRYER
 Always use oil and fats which can withstand high temperature.
 Do not mix different types of oil or fat.
 Change the oil or fat when it becomes brown after cooking.
 The raw 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.
 Do not overfill the basket. This will cause the oil temperature to drop and make
the food greasy.
 Do not keep the oil at high temperature for a long period of time. This will make it
lose its properties.
 Set the temperature knob to the lowest temperature while waiting between
two batches.
 Do not leave the cooked food in the basket in the draining position too long. The cooked
food could lose its crispness and go soft.
 Frozen food can be cooked in the basket without being defrosted.
 Oil or fat can be left in the fryer with its basket and lid on. It will not lose its properties.
 Change the fat or oil regularly, after approximately 20 batches.
