In the event of fire:
– Unplug the appliance: Switch off the fuse
in the fuse box.
– Cover with a stainless steel cover or fire
blanket: The lack of oxygen will
extinguish the fire.
– Switch off the extractor fan: The air
draught strengthens the fire.

Safety cut-out
The safety cut-out automatically switches off the deep
fryer if the frying basin is not filled with oil/fat up to at
least the bottom marking.
1. Switch off the deep fryer and allow it to cool down.
2. Fill the frying basin with at least 3 litres of frying oil/
fat.
3. Push the safety pin on the front of the housing in
firmly (e.g. using a ball-point pen).
: Warning – Risk of fire!
When using the deep-fat fryer with solid fat, the element
may overheat. Melt deep-fat frying fat first at a low
temperature. Only set a higher temperature once the
deep-fat frying fat is largely melted.
: Warning – Risk of fire!
If the minimum fill level is not met (bottom mark), the
element can overheat. Add oil or fat in good time.
Deep-fat frying
During deep-fat frying, the heat generated by the
appliance is transferred to the food being fried via the
fat. This rapid cooking process forms a tasty crust on
the food. The temperature range for deep-fat frying is
between 150 and 190 °C.
Notes
■
Break up the fresh frying fat into small pieces before
melting it. When reusing frying fat, make a hole in
the solid mass of fat (e.g. using the handle of a
wooden spoon) before melting it, pushing right down
to the heating element.
■
Only use pure vegetable oil or vegetable fat for
deep-fat frying. Avoid using blends of fat.
■
When frying fat may emit smoke as it melts. This is
normal.
You can now use the deep fryer again.
Draining the frying oil/fat
If the food being fried is no longer becoming crispy
despite the temperature being set correctly, you need to
change the oil/fat.
: Warning – Risk of burns!
Hot oil or fat may spray out from the drain valve during
draining. Allow the oil or fat to cool down until it is
lukewarm before draining.
1. Place a heat-resistant container with a capacity of
over 4 litres under the drain valve.
2. Open the drain valve underneath the deep fryer and
drain the used oil/fat.
Deep fryer settings
Note: Ensure the drain valve is closed.
1. Fill the frying basin with 4 litres of frying oil or 3.5 kg
of frying fat.
2. Set the temperature using the temperature selector.
3. When the heating light goes out, immerse the deep
Note: Drain the fat while it is still warm and liquid. If the
fat solidifies in the drain valve, you can push it through

spoon.
Note: Do not pour oil/fat down the sink or toilet;
dispose of it at designated collection points instead.
frying basket containing the food to be fried in the
oil/fat.
4. When you have finished deep-fat frying, remove the
deep frying basket and gently shake it to remove any
excess oil/fat.
To allow the remaining oil/fat to drain, hook the deep
frying basket into the suspension device.
Heating light
The heating light lights up while the deep-fat fryer is
heating up. The heating light goes out when the deepfat frying oil/fat has reached the set temperature.

Tips and tricks
Tips for using oil or fat to fry food
■
When frying food, use only pure plant oils or fats that
are suitable for high-temperature frying, such as
groundnut oil, palm oil and coconut oil. Oils that are
not suitable include virgin olive oil, soybean oil and
wheatgerm oil. Avoid using blends of fat.Follow the
manufacturer's instructions.
■
Each time you use the fryer, use a skimming ladle
afterwards to remove any large food remnants from
the frying oil or fat. Alternatively, you can open the oil
drain valve to drain off the food remnants. Wait until
the frying oil or fat has cooled down to 40 °C or
less.
■
If you wish to reuse the frying oil or fat, line a metal
sieve with a piece of paper towel and, once the oil or
fat is lukewarm, pour it through the sieve.
■
Replace the frying oil or fat regularly, and at the very
latest when it starts to smell or taste unpleasant,
foams significantly, starts to smoke (at 160-170 °C)
or if the food no longer becomes crispy even at the
correct temperature setting. Early smoking must not
be confused with the steam that rises when moist
food is placed in the fryer.
■
Put the lid back on once the oil or fat has cooled
down. This prevents impurities or water from
contaminating the fat.
Tips regarding the food
■
The following are suitable for deep frying: small
pieces of meat and fish, vegetables, potatoes,
pastries, fruit and breaded food.
■
Moist foods such as fish, shellfish, pieces of meat,
vegetables or fruit slices must be thoroughly dried.
■
Foods with a high water content are not suitable for
deep frying.
en
Tips regarding the deep frying
■
Do not deep fry very large quantities at once so that
the oil can circulate and release the heat quickly to
the food. Shake the frying basket with the food to
avoid it sticking and to help the oil circulate.
■
The food should be completely covered by the deep
frying oil or fat. Turn large food items after the first
halve of the frying time or push them down with a
second frying basket.
■
Fill the food into the frying basket on the worktop
beside the deep fryer. Do not fill the frying basket
directly over the deep fryer. This will help keep the
deep frying oil or fat free from residues.
■
Do not salt or season the food above the deep fryer
to avoid soiling of the deep frying oil or fat.
■
Moist or frozen food leads to particularly hefty
foaming of the oil or fat when it is inserted. Slowly
lower the filled basket several times. This prevents
overflowing of the fat.
■
Remove ice from deep frozen foodstuffs before deep
frying.
■
Set the recommended temperature.
– Correct temperature: proteins form a protective
crust. Only a small amount of fat is absorbed.
– Temperature too high: the food is browned too
quickly and remains raw on the inside.
– Temperature too low: the food absorbs too much
oil or fat.
■
Dab freshly deep fried food with kitchen paper to
reduce the amount of fat even more.
