• This appliance is not designed to be used by people (including children) with a EN
physical, sensory or mental impairment, or people without knowledge or experience,
unless they are supervised or given prior instructions concerning the use of the
appliance by someone responsible for their safety.
• Children must be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
• Use a flat, stable, heat-resistant surface, away from any water splashes.
• Never leave the appliance unattended when in use.
• This electrical equipment operates at high temperatures which may cause burns.
Do not touch the hot parts of the appliance (filter, window, metal walls (depending
on model), other apparent metal parts…). Be careful of hot steam and never put
your hands above the filtration zone.
• Do not switch on the appliance near to flammable materials (blinds, curtains….)
or close to an external heat source (gas stove, hot plate etc.).
• In the event of fire, never try to extinguish the flames with water. Close the lid.
Unplug the appliance.
• Smother the flames with a damp cloth.
• Do not move the appliance when it is full of liquids or hot food.
• Never immerse the appliance or the electrical control unit in water !
• Before throwing away your appliance, the timer battery must be removed by a
Tefal Service Centre (depending on model).
• Do not store your deep fryer outside. Store it in a dry and well ventilated area.
• It is essential that you wait until the oil has cooled down before storing the fryer.
Cooking
• Never plug in the deep fryer without oil or fat inside.
• The oil level must always be between the min and max markers.
• If you use solid vegetable fat, cut it into pieces and melt it over a slow heat (max
150°C) in a separate pan beforehand, then slowly pour it into the deep fryer
bowl. Never put solid fat directly into the deep fryer bowl or fryer basket as this
will lead to deterioration of the appliance.
• Do not mix different types of oil. Never add water to the oil or fat.
• Do not overfill the basket, never exceed the maximum capacity.
• Oils to use: For best results we recommend using a good quality blended vegetable
oil. If using Sunflower oil ensure the oil is changed after every 5 uses.
• Oils which should NOT be used under any circumstances and may cause overflowing/smoking/risk of fire are: ground nut oil, soya oil, olive oil, lard or dripping.
• If you have a removable anti-odour filter, change it after every 10 - 15 uses
(foam filter) or after 30 - 40 uses (cartridge with saturation indicator), or 80 uses
(carbon filter).
7
• Some models are equipped with a permanent metallic filter, which does not
need to be changed.
• No matter what the recipe, whether preparing fresh or frozen food, it must be
perfectly dry. Dry the food thoroughly with paper kitchen towel or a clean tea
towel before frying. This will prevent the oil from splattering and/or overflowing,
will extend the life of the oil and give crispier results.
• For frozen food, place the food into the basket and then shake the basket over
the sink to remove any excess ice crystals.
Recommendations
• Limit the cooking temperature to 190°C, especially for potatoes.
• Use the basket for chips.
• Check the cooking progress: Do not eat burnt food.
• Clean your oil after every use to avoid burnt crumbs and change it after every 8
to 10 uses (after every 5 uses if using Sunflower oil). Do not pour used oil/fat into
the sink.
• Leave it to cool and throw it away with household waste - according to the local
community regulations.
• Store your fresh potatoes in a room above 8°C.
• For best results and fast cooking, we recommend that you limit the quantity of
chips to 1/2 basket per frying.
• For larger quantities of food or potatoes the temperature of the oil drops very
fast just after having lowered the basket. This lowers the oil temperature
considerably and it is normal for the temperature to take a while to return to
190°C.
• Take great care when handling the food and use tongs.
• Gradually place the food in the hot oil, submerging it an inch at a time to prevent
it from sinking straightaway and any oil overflowing.
• For best results fry chips cut from fresh potatoes twice: A first fry at 170°C and a
second fry at 190°C.

• If you use solid fat, chop it into pieces and then melt it
in a separate pan before pouring it into the bowl (never
melt solid fat in the basket or in the bowl).
• Never exceed 150°C to melt the fat that has solidified
in the bowl. For the cooking temperature follow the instructions (see cooking charts p.10).
• NEVER use animal fat such as lard or dripping as this
could cause overflowing, smoke or a fire hazard.
Pre-heating
• After filling the bowl with the fat, close the lid and plug
in your fryer without the basket
• Adjust the thermostat - fig 8 depending on the food to
be fried (see cooking charts p. 11).

frozen 900 g. To avoid
overflowing and extend
the life of the oil, dry
the food carefully before
cooking it.
• Dry the food to remove any excess water or ice.
• Fill the basket before placing it in the fryer.
• Do not overfill the basket.
• Reduce quantities for frozen food.
• Tip: Cut food to the same sized pieces so that it cooks
evenly. Avoid pieces that are too thick.
Cooking
Lowering the basket
• After the temperature indicator light goes out, very
gently lower the basket into the oil - fig 11. Lowering it

Table of cooking times
• The cooking times are a guide only; they may vary
depending on the size of the food and the amount of
food and individual preferences. Thicker food may
require turning halfway through frying to ensure even
cooking on both sides.
• Cooking tips: For best results, use the traditional French
method of frying homemade chips:
- first frying at 170 °C
- second frying at 190 °C
• When cooking battered food and doughnuts, remove
the wire basket to prevent food sticking to it and use
tongs to slowly lower the food into the hot oil.
When cooking battered
food and doughnuts,
take great care when
handling the food and
use tongs. Gradually
place the food into the
hot oil, submerging it
an inch at a time to
prevent it from sinking
immediately.

Cleaning
Filtering and Storing the oil
• You may store the oil in the fryer, or in a separate airtight
container.
• If you use solid vegetable fat, we advise you to store it
separately from the fryer.
• Crumbs that break away from foods tend to burn and
alter the quality of the oil more rapidly. Over time, this
increases the risk of catching fire. For this reason, filter
the oil regularly.
