USING THE ELECTRIC FRYER
EF 4000
USING THE FRYER FOR THE FIRST TIME
− Remove the adhesive film which protects certain
parts.
− Carefully remove all the glue residues without using
abrasive substances, to avoid scratching the surfaces.
− Remove the basket, raise the heating element and
take out the oil tray.
− Wash and dry the tray and the basket carefully (better
if in the dishwasher).
− Put the tray back into the fryer and lower the heating
element.
− Fill the tray with 3 litres of water.
− Switch the fryer on by turning the changeover switch
knob and turn the thermostat knob to about 150 oC.
This operation will clean the working residues from
the electric heating element.
− Leave the fryer ON until the temperature indicator
light goes out, then leave it to cool down.
− Empty out the water and dry the tray and heating
element carefully.
− The fryer is ready for use.
FILLING WITH OIL
− Take out the basket.
− Fill the tray with about 2 litres of oil or fat for
frying, already partly melted. The level must be
between the minimum and maximum marks
printed on the tray.
− Make sure that the heating element is completely
lowered.
IMPORTANT: The heating element must never
be switched on when it is out of the oil.
COLD AREA
The appliance is so constructed as to allow an ample
cold area under the heating element for the solid
particles to settle. This helps the oil to last longer and
improves the frying which will appear uniform, without
burnt spots.
SAFETY THERMOSTAT
The appliance has a manually reset safety thermostat
which turns the appliance off when the temperature,
because of a fault, exceeds the set temperature.
If this happens call the After-Sales Service.
26
USING THE ELECTRIC FRYER
EF 4000
USING THE FRYER
− Check the level of oil or fat; it must be between the
minimum and maximum mark.
− Make sure that the heating element is completely
lowered.
− Turn the changeover switch knob to the ON position
( ); the power indicator light comes on.
− Turn the thermostat knob to the temperature
required; the temperature indicator light comes on.
− When the temperature indicator light goes out, the oil
or fat have reached the set temperature and the
appliance is ready for cooking. This indicator will
come on and go out intermittently during cooking.
− Before putting food into the basket dry it thoroughly
because the contact between the water and the hot
oil can lead to very dangerous splashes.
− Fill the basket with the food to be fried and lower it
slowly into the oil.
WARNING: If the food is too wet there will be
violent and dangerous foaming.
− As soon as the food is cooked, take out the basket
and rest it on the support until all the excess oil has
drained off.
− Always dry off any overflows.
c
Precautions when using solid fat
Some frying fats solidify when they cool. Melt them as
follows:
− Make a hole in the fat down to the heating element.
− Switch the fryer on at 160oC for about a minute, then
turn it off by turning the thermostat knob to 0.
− Repeat this operation until the fat is completely
melted.
WARNING: Make absolutely sure that when
dissolving the fat the heating element does not
become red hot because the fat could catch fire.
IMPORTANT:
− Never switch the fryer on with the heating element
raised. If this happens by accident, never put the
heating element into the oil or fat before it has
cooled down.
WARNING
The fryer and the adjacent surfaces become
very hot during use and also there might be
splashes of boiling oil.
Keep children away and be careful of oil
splashes.
27
USING THE ELECTRIC FRYER
EF 4000
TIPS FOR CORRECT FRYING
− Each food has a recommended frying temperature
which should be respected, because if the
temperature is too low the frying will be oily, while
if it is too high the food will be too crispy on the
outside and raw inside.
− Use a good special oil for frying. Do not use mixed
seed oil.
− Put the basket with the food to be fried into the oil
only when the oil is at the correct temperature (after
the temperature indicator light has gone out).
− Do not overfill the basket otherwise the oil
temperature will drop suddenly and the frying will
be greasy and uneven.
− If possible the food should be of the same thickness
and not too thick.
− When the food is cut too thick it cooks badly in the
middle, even if it looks good. If it is of the same
thickness cooking will be ideal and uniform.
− Large items of food (chicken, whole fish, etc.) which
remain partly uncovered must be turned half way
through cooking.
− Before putting the food into the basket dry it
thoroughly, otherwise the food, especially potatoes,
will be soft after cooking.
− Fish, meat, vegetables and all other food which
contains a lot of water should be coated with
breadcrumbs or flour. Make sure to shake off the
excess of breadcrumbs or flour.
− Never salt the food in the fryer.
− At the end of frying do not leave the food in the
basket inside the fryer: the fatty vapours given off in
fact made the fried food soft, so that it loses that
crispiness which is the sign of good frying.
− For best results filter the oil after cooking a few
times and change it frequently.
28

USING THE COVER
Wait for the oil to cool down before covering the fryer
with the cover.
To position the cover correctly fold the basket handle
inwards (Fig. a).
To reposition the handle pull it outwards (Fig. b) until it
hooks on the stop (Fig. c).
IMPORTANT
If the oil catches fire suffocate the flames immediately
using the fryer cover.
Never use water, because this would cause the
flames to become worse.

TABLE OF COOKING TIMES
CHANGING THE FRYING OIL
The values given below are indicative, in fact times and
temperatures can also vary depending on the quality of
the food.
− Keep an eye on the oil level, which must never drop
below the minimum.
− The oil should be changed regularly.
− The length of time the frying oil lasts depends on
the type of food to be fried; as compared with
normal frying, if the food is floured, for example,
there will be more deposits in the oil and it should
therefore be changed more frequently.
− If during cooking the oil smokes or smells bad it
should be changed completely.
