1. Important Notes

For your safety

Do not operate the appliance if it is damaged.

The appliance must only be connected by an authorised specialist, paying attention to the relevant regulations of the power supply companies and the regional construction regulations.

Observe the assembly instructions!

The appliance could be damaged if connected wrongly!

When connecting electrical appliances in the proximity of the deep fryer, make sure that connecting cables do not come into contact with hot cooking surfaces.

Only operate the appliance under supervision.

Foodstuffs that are prepared in fat and oil must be constantly supervised! Caution! Old or much used fats and oils can ignite easily if they overheat.

Caution: Fire Risk! Do not store any combustible objects in your appliance.

Caution!

The appliance heats up during operation.

Keep children away.

Caution: Fire Risk! Keep naked flames away from the appliance!

Observe particular caution when working with water in the proximity of the warm appliance.

Explosion risk!

Caution! Over-greased filters are a fire risk if the appliance is positioned under an extractor hood or adjacent to a hob ventilator!

If a fire should break out, switch off the electricity at fuse point and close the appliance cover. Smother burning fat or oil. Never extinguish a deep fryer with water! Switch off the extractor hood immediately because the draught will otherwise intensify the fire!

To avoid jeopardising the electrical safety of the appliance, do not use high-pressure or steam jet cleaning devices.

Isolate the appliance from the mains during every maintenance operation. To do this, remove the mains plug or switch off the corresponding fuse.

Repairs must be carried out by authorised specialists, thus ensuring electrical safety.

As the user, you are responsible for maintenance and proper use in the household. No warranty claims can be lodged for any damage resulting from failure to observe these instructions.

About use

The appliance is intended solely for household use and must not be put to any other uses.

Use the appliance to prepare meals only. Do not use the appliance to heat up the room in which it is installed.

The appliance must not be operated empty. If the appliance is switched on empty, the temperature control will switch off the appliance automatically.

Turn the “Temperature" control knob to the OFF position. Wait until the appliance has cooled down.

Only use the intended deep frying baskets.

The deep frying oil/fat will foam over if foodstuffs are too wet or if excessive quantities are inserted.

Risk of burns!

Keep ventilation openings open (doors, extractor hoods and windows).

Top up oil or fat as soon as it is below the minimum level (bottom marking). Caution: there is a fire risk if the oil/fat level should drop below the bottom marking!

Switch off the appliance after use.

The door(s) of the base cabinet must be locked if there are small children in your household. This reduces the risk of burns.

Fire risk! Clean your appliance at regular intervals and change the oil/fat regularly. Old/soiled fat must be replaced if it becomes brown, has an unpleasant smell and/or smokes prematurely (160 - 170 °C). Old oil/fat tends to foam over easily and has a lower ignition temperature.

Built-in overheating protection prevents overheating of the appliance and of surrounding kitchen furniture.

In the event of malfunction, first check your household fuses. If the power supply is in proper working order, but the appliance is still not functioning, please inform your specialist dealer or your nearest

Gaggenau after-sales service.

Operating for the first time

Remove the packaging from the appliance and dispose of it according to local regulations.

Be careful to remove all accessories from the packaging. Keep packaging elements and plastic bags away from children.

Check the appliance for transport damage before installing it.

The appliance must be installed and connected by an authorised specialist before operation. Before operating the appliance for the first time, make sure that the mains connection is in proper working order.

The serial number of the appliance can be found on the quality control slip which is included with these instructions. This quality control slip should be kept, for guarantee reasons, together with your operating and assembly instructions.

Read through these instructions attentively before operating your appliance for the first time.

Thoroughly clean the appliance and accessories before using them for the first time. This will eliminate any 'newness’ smells and soiling (see chapter

“Cleaning and care”).

3. Operation

Operating principle The two marks on the rear of the deep fryer indicate the maximum and minimum levels for the deep-frying oil or fat. The oil/fat level should always be between the two marking lines.

The food to be fried should always be completely covered by the deep-frying oil or fat; if this is impossible, turn the food after half the frying time.

The appliance has a special fat setting when using fat for frying. To keep the fat from overheating, it is first melted slowly and then heated to the required temperature.

Any water contained in the food sinks to the bottom of the Gaggenau Electric Fryer into so-called cold oil zone . This prevents the oil frothing over. Also, any particles of food which break away during frying fall through the basket and sink to this cold zone. The lower temperature in this zone prevents the oil breaking down and considerably prolongs the time for which the oil or fat can be used. The foaming edge serves to accommodate the foam that occurs during deep frying.

Built-in overheating protection prevents overheating of the appliance and of surrounding kitchen furniture.

The deep fryer is switched off, the luminous disc behind the right control knob flashes.

Possible causes:

• No or not enough fat/oil in the fryer.

• The fryer has been switched on with the oil setting selected, although it is filled with fat.

Turn the temperature control knob to 0. The flashing will stop, as soon as the temperature on the heating element drops below a critical value.

Put fat/oil into the deep fryer. Now the deep fryer can be switched on again as normal.

Important: Never switch on the deep fryer empty. The oil/fat level in the frying basin should always be between the two marking lines. cleaning setting fat setting

Switching on oil setting

Switching on

• Open the appliance cover. Fit the frying basket holder into the two clips on the edge of the basin and secure the holder in the clamp on the cover.

• Fill the frying basin either with 3 - 3.5 l of heatresistant oil (e.g. peanut oil, palm oil or special deep frying oil) or 2.5 - 3 kg of heat-resistant fat

(e.g. coconut fat, lard or special frying fat). Cut the fat into approx. 250 g pieces if necessary and place these evenly in the frying basin. The fat should be room or fridge temperature, but on no account frozen.

• Press down the left control knob and turn it to the oil or fat setting required.

• Press down the right control knob and turn it to the required temperature between 135 and 190 °C.

• The luminous disc behind the control knob flashes, while the appliance is heating up. When the required temperature is reached, the luminous disc lights constantly.

• When using fat, although the required temperature has been reached, some fat may remain hard in the cold oil zone. This does not affect the frying result. You can start frying, when the luminous disc behind the right control knob lights constantly.

• Fill the frying basket at the side of the appliance and insert the basket into the hot oil.

• When the food is ready (see settings table), take out the deep frying basket, shake it lightly and hang it on the frying basket holder. This will make sure that the oil can drip off faster. Use the upper three runs of the frying basket holder. When using two frying baskets simultaneously, hang them side by side (only the two top runs) or one above the other onto the frying basket holder.

Switching off

Fully turn the right control knob to the OFF position.

Residual heat display

After switching off the deep fryer, the luminous disc behind the right control knob will flash, as long as the appliance has not cooled down sufficiently to be touched safely.

The appliance cover must not be closed until the appliance has cooled down completely.

Holiday safeguard

(Automatic switch-off)

The appliance is set to automatically switch off

4 hours after the last operation. The luminous disc behind the right control knob flashes. Turn the control knob to 0. Now the deep fryer can be switched on again as normal.

Draining the deep frying oil or fat

Drain used oil only after the residual heat display has gone off. Avoid contact with the oil or fat.

Use a temperature-resistant bucket with a capacity of at least 10 litres to collect the oil/fat.

The deep frying oil or fat is drained off through the oil drain valve, which is located under the funnelshaped base of the deep frying tub: first unscrew the plastic cap from the drain valve, and then open the drain valve by pulling the handle down. After draining the oil, close the drain valve and screw the plastic cover back on. If fat does not drain, it might have hardened in the cold oil zone.

Dispose of used oil and fat in accordance with local regulations.

4. Practical tips

• The deep frying temperature range lies between

160 and 180 °C. The maximum temperature is

190 °C.

• According to the general recommendations for healthy frying, a temperature of 175 °C should not be exceeded (see cooking table). There should be 100 g maximum of food per 1 litre of oil/fat and it should only be fried until the food obtains a golden yellow.

• The surface will crust too fast if the frying fat is too hot. Its interior, however, will remain raw. The food will take on too much fat if the fat is too cold.

• If the fat is at the right temperature, its pores will close swiftly when it is dipped in and a protective crust will form. Thus, only a small amount of fat is able to penetrate the food. Drain freshly deep fried food on absorbant kitchen paper. This reduces the amount of fat even more.

• Use heat-resistant oil or fat (with a smoke point of at least 200 °C). Suitable e.g. peanut oil, palm oil or coconut fat. Unsuitable e.g. native olive oil, soya or wheat germ oil.

• Replace the deep frying oil or fat completely if it smells or tastes unpleasant, foams, begins to smoke at 160 - 170 °C or if the food you are deep frying no longer becomes crispy despite having set the correct temperature.

Smoking of the oil is not to be confused with water steam which occurs when frying moist food.

• After every use of the deep fryer, remove any resulting remainders of food (e.g. bread crumbs) from the oil or fat.

• If you would like to re-use the oil, filter the cooled oil through a fine metal sieve.

• Do not salt or season the food or fill the basket over the deep fryer.

• The following foodstuffs are suitable for deep frying: small pieces of meat and fish, vegetables, potatoes, pastries, fruit and breaded foodstuffs.

• The food to be fried should be completely covered with oil or fat, otherwise it will need to be turned after half of the frying time has elapsed or pushed down using a second frying basket.

• During deep frying (from 170 °C), oil and fat takes on neither an odour nor taste. So, you can deep fry fish and fruits straight after one another.

• Moist or frozen food leads to particularly excessive foaming of the fat when it is inserted. Thoroughly dry all moist foods and slowly dip in the filled basket several times. This prevents overflowing of the fat. Remove ice from frozen food.

• Do not fry large quantities of food at the same time, so that the oil can circulate well and transfer the heat quickly to the food. Shake the basket throughout frying to prevent food sticking together and to allow the oil to circulate better.

• After cooling down, close the appliance cover.

This is necessary for safety reasons and prevents things from falling into the fat.
