Using Your Deep Fryer

Place the assembled deep fryer on a flat, level surface. Allow sufficient space around the deep fryer for proper air flow; three inches on all sides is recommended. Never place any object on top of the fryer as this will block air vents.

Press the lid release button to the right of the handle to open the lid of the deep fryer. Fill the deep fryer bowl with oil no higher than the line marked MAX (about 2 1/2 quarts).

Warning: Do not fill with oil above the maximum level or below the minimum level marked on the inside of the deep fryer bowl.

Close lid. Plug the deep fryer into a 120 volt 60Hz AC outlet. The temperature indicator light will be red.

Important: Do not plug in the deep fryer without oil in it.

To start heating the oil, turn the timer control dial to the required time.

Turn the temperature control dial to the desired cooking temperature.

See the Frying Guide on page 8 or follow your recipe for suggested temperatures to fry foods. Allow the oil to preheat for about 10 minutes or until the indicator light turns green, indicating that the oil has reached the desired temperature.

Press the lid release button to the right of the handle to open the lid of the deep fryer. Raise the basket to the upright position by pressing the handle release button, grasping the handle, and lifting it upward until it clicks into place. Place food to be fried in the basket. Do not fill the basket more than 3/4 full. When preparing your favorite recipes, fry 1 to 4 cups of food, up to 2.2 pounds, at a time.

Warning: Do not add water, wet foods or icy frozen foods to cooking oil, because this will cause the oil to splatter and may result in injury.

While keeping the basket in the upright position, close the lid until it clicks into place. Press the handle release button and slowly fold the handle down against the front panel of the deep fryer.

6

Note: The temperature indicator light will cycle from green to red during cooking, indicating the thermostat is maintaining the correct temperature.

WARNING: Do not move deep fryer while cooking.

Use the Frying Guide on page 8 or follow your recipe for the amount of time necessary to fry the foods. Reset the time as needed. To check food during frying, look through the viewing window or you may carefully open the lid. Use an oven mitt and gently hold the lid down while pressing the lid release button. Release the lid slowly.

When the food has finished frying, slowly raise the basket handle until it clicks into place. Open the lid by using the lid release button. Leave the basket in this draining position for a minute or two (Fig. 3). Do not leave the cooked food in the basket in

Fig. 3 the draining position for more than five minutes or it may lose its crispness and become soft. Lift the basket from the deep fryer using the handle.

When you have finished frying, unplug the deep fryer. Make sure the cord does not drape off the countertop. Leave the deep fryer to cool down completely before moving or cleaning.

Guidelines for Deep-frying

1. Always fry food between the temperatures of 350-375° unless recipe specifies otherwise. Cooking at lower temperatures allows for more oil absorption, which makes the food taste greasy.

2. Make sure indicator light is green before lowering food into oil.

3. Do not overload basket. Too much food will prevent the food from moving around and browning evenly. In addition, it may slow down the cooking time. Fry in smaller batches for faster, crispier fried food.

4. When selecting oil to use in your deep fryer, choose a high quality brand of peanut oil, canola oil, vegetable oil, or shortening. These fats can withstand high temperatures well. Do not use butter, margarine, animal fats or olive oil because these smoke at lower temperatures. Do not mix different oils.

5. To extend the frying life of your oil, always add 15-20% new oil or fat each time you fry. This translates to approximately 1/2- to

1-cup new oil each time you fry.

6. Cover and refrigerate the oil or fat between uses to maintain freshness.

7. Change oil often and dispose of responsibly. Do not pour down the sink drain. Check with local regulations for proper disposal.

8. Keep oil for frying seafood and fish separate from oil used for potatoes and other milder items.

9. Before deep frying any foods, remove excess moisture by blotting well with a paper towel. Do not add water, wet foods, or icy frozen foods to hot oil, because this will cause the oil to spatter, which may result in injury.

10. When frying battered foods, shake off any excess batter or coating before putting in the oil.

11. Never pour salt into the oil. Instead, salt the food while it is hot and draining on a paper towel.

13. Unthawed frozen foods can be cooked in the basket. Follow directions on food package.

14. After cutting potatoes for French fries or potato chips, wash in cold water to remove starch. This will keep them from sticking together.

Dry completely before frying.

15. Never place any plastic utensils into hot oil. Do not pour hot oil into plastic containers.

Preparing for Frying

Many deep-fried foods are coated with a breading or batter before frying. This helps to retain the moisture and flavor of the food and protects the food from absorbing too much fat. Batters can also add appetizing texture, flavor and appearance to the food to be fried.

Following are general guidelines for breading and battering foods, including a variety of coatings you may not have thought of before.

Quantities will vary according to the amount of foods you are frying.

Following these tips will help prevent coatings from separating and falling off into the fryer.

Breading Foods For Frying

1. Set up three bowls or plates.

2. Place flour in the first bowl.

3. In the second bowl, make an egg wash by mixing eggs and either water or milk.

4. In the last bowl, place the breading of your choice. like bread crumbs or cornmeal. Try one of the following suggestions: fine dry bread crumbs crushed corn flakes fresh bread crumbs cracker meal corn meal instant potato flakes panko - rice bread crumbs rice flour

5. Clean the food to be fried and shake off any excess water. If desired, season the food with salt and pepper.

6. Dip the food in the flour and shake off the extra flour.

7. Dip the food in the egg wash; let the extra drain off so that the crumb coating will be even.

8. Lastly, dip the food in the crumbs, pressing gently and making sure it is coated completely. Shake off excess.

9. Have a pan handy to hold the breaded food until ready to fry.

Tip: While breading food, occasionally remove any lumps from the flour and crumbs for even coverage.

10

Battering Foods For Frying

Batters are semi-liquid mixtures containing flour or starch. They are used in deep frying to give a crisp, flavorful coating. They are great on seafood and vegetables, such as broccoli or shrimp.

• Many different liquids may be used: milk, beer, water, sake.

• Eggs may not be used.

• Too thick of a batter is not as palatable as a light one.

• For lighter results, use a leavening agent, such as baking powder, beaten egg whites, beer or seltzer.

RAW EGG WARNING

The American Egg Board states: "There have been warnings against consuming raw or lightly cooked eggs on the grounds that the egg may be contaminated with

Salmonella, a bacteria responsible for a type of foodborne illness. Healthy people need to remember that there is a very small risk and treat eggs and other raw animal foods accordingly. Use only properly refrigerated, clean, sound-shelled, fresh, grade

AA or A eggs. Avoid mixing yolks and whites with the shell.”

Care and Cleaning

Warning: Deep fryer and oil are hot. To avoid the risk of burns, do not move the deep fryer while hot.

Before cleaning, unplug the cord from the wall outlet and wait for the deep fryer to cool completely. Open the lid to its full upright position.

Gently lift up the lid. Use the handle to remove the frying basket from the deep fryer. Wash the frying basket in warm, soapy water and dry thoroughly.

Remove the control panel and heating element from the base by lifting vertically. Never immerse the control panel. Clean the heating element with hot, soapy water, bing careful not to wet the control panel. Clean the exterior of the control panel with a damp cloth. Wipe the interior and exterior of the of the deep fryer with a damp cloth.

11

Care and Cleaning, Cont.

Remove the nonstick frying bowl. If you are storing oil in the bowl, cover with plastic wrap. If not, drain the oil into another covered container and wash the bowl with warm, soapy water.

Cover and refrigerate used oil for up to two weeks. Discard oil if it becomes thick or rancid. Change the oil when it is a dark color, smells bad or there is a bad taste in the food. The covered deep fryer bowl containing oil may be refrigerated.

Important: Do not immerse the deep fryer base, control panel or power cord in water or other liquid. Do not place the deep fryer base, control panel or power cord in the dishwasher.

Reassemble the deep fryer for storage. Note: Always store the deep fryer with the handle in the lowered position.

There is a filter system in the lid to absorb odor. The charcoal filter should be replaced after every 25 uses or more often when frying foods with strong odors, such as onions or fish. Remove the filter cover and replace the charcoal filter with a new one. The mesh filter is permanent and should be washed in hot, sudsy water after every

25 uses or as needed. Dry completely before replacing.
