Safety warnings
• This appliance has been designed to fry foods exclusively for
household use; it must not be used for other purposes and
must not be modified or tampered with in any way.
• Before using the appliance, check that the voltage of the mains
power supply corresponds to the value indicated on the
appliance rating plate.
• After removing the appliance from the packaging, make sure
that the fryer is in complete and perfect condition. Ensure all
labels, plastic bags, and packaging have been removed from both
inside and around the fryer.
• Connect the appliance to an earthed power supply and sockets
with a minimum current rating of 10 A only. (If the plug fitted
to the appliance does not match the power socket, have the
plug replaced with a suitable type by a qualified professional).
• Never locate the appliance near sources of heat.
• The power cable of this appliance must not be replaced by the
user as this requires the use of special tools.
If the power cable is damaged, it must be replaced by the
manufacturer, an authorised service centre or a qualified pro-
fessional in order to eliminate all risk. See guarantee leaflet for
details.
• While in operation, the appliance becomes hot. DO NOT
LEAVE WITHIN REACH OF CHILDREN.
• Do not move the deep fryer when the oil is hot as this may
cause serious burns.
• Never use the deep fryer without oil.
• If oil leaks from the deep fryer, contact a technical service cen-
tre or personnel authorised by the manufacturer.
• Before using the deep fryer for the first time, wash the bowl,
basket and lid in hot water and washing up liquid.At the end of
the operation, dry everything thoroughly and remove any
water left in the bottom of the bowl.
This prevents dangerous splashes of hot oil during operation.
• The appliance is not intended for use by persons (including
children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities,
or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been
given supervision or instruction concerning use of the applian-
ce by a person responsible for their safety.

it could be grabbed by children or get in the way of the user.
• It is normal for the appliance to give off a "new" smell when
used for the first time.Ventilate the room.
• When opening the lid, take great care to avoid hot steam and
splashes of boiling oil.
• This appliance conforms to EC directive 2004/108/EC on
Electromagnetic Compatibility and EC regulation no. 1935/2004
of 27/10/2004 on materials intended for contact with food.

Thank you for choosing this electric fryer.To get the best
results from your deep fryer please read these instructions
before using the appliance. This is the only way to ensure
optimum results and maximum safety.
Operating instructions
Before plugging into the mains, always make sure there is
oil in the bowl.
Pour the oil into the bowl: 2,3 litres maximum capacity (2 kg of
fat).
WARNING:The level of oil should always be between the
maximum and minimum marks indicated inside the bowl.
Never use the deep fryer with the oil below the "min"
level as this could cause the thermal cutout to trip.To
replace it, contact an authorised service centre.
For best results, use a good quality oil such as corn oil or ground-
nut oil. Never use olive oil, butter, or margarine as it will smoke or
bubble over.
If you are using solid fat, cut into small pieces to avoid the deep
fryer heating up without liquid for the first few minutes.
The temperature must be set to 150°C until the fat has melted
completely.You can then set the required temperature.
Frying
Plug into the mains socket and turn the thermostat pointer to the
required temperature.When the indicator light goes out, lower the
basket (containing the food) slowly and carefully into the oil and
close the lid. Do not overfill (1 kg max. of fresh potatoes).
Immediately after the basket has been lowered, it is normal for a
considerable quantity of very hot steam to be given off from the
filter and drops of condensation to form near the basket handgrip.
At the end of cooking, remove the basket and unplug the appliance
from the mains socket.
How long the oil or fat lasts
Every now and then it must be completely changed.As with any
deep fryer, the oil deteriorates after being heated a number of
times! Even if used and filtered correctly, it should therefore be
changed completely on a regular basis.You should ideally change
the oil completely after frying for 5/8 times and always in the event
of: Unpleasant smell; smoke during frying; the oil becomes dark.
Before cleaning or maintenance, turn the appliance off, unplug and
allow to cool down.You should filter the oil or fat each time you
fry, especially if you cook food in breadcrumbs or flour.
Food particles left in the liquid tend to burn and may cause the oil
5 Electric Deep Fryer F26

or fat to deteriorate more rapidly. Make sure the oil is sufficiently
cold (wait about two hours) before filtering.To filter the oil or fat,
simply pour through fine muslin or absorbent paper.
Frying non-frozen food
• The food being fried must not be immersed in the oil
until the oil has reached the correct temperature and
the light has gone off.
• Never over fill the basket This could cause a sudden drop in
the temperature of the oil and therefore greasier and less uni-
form frying.
• Check that the food is cut into thin, even pieces. If the food is
too thick, it will not be well cooked inside.
• When cooking food in batter, you should first immerse the
basket empty.Then, when the set temperature has been rea-
ched (the light goes out), immerse the food directly in the hot
oil to avoid the batter sticking to the basket.
• Dry the food thoroughly before immersing it in the oil
or fat as moist foods will be less crispy after cooking (espe-
cially potatoes). Foods with a high water content (fish, meat,
vegetables) should ideally be coated in breadcrumbs or flour
before frying. Make sure to remove excess flour or bread-
crumbs before immersing the food in the oil.

Frying frozen food
Frozen foods are stored at very low temperatures. Consequently,
they significantly lower the temperature of the oil or fat used for
cooking. For optimum results, do not overfill the basket. Shake off
any excess ice before frying frozen food. Immerse the basket in the
oil very slowly to prevent the oil from boiling over.The cooking
times indicated below are approximate and must be adjusted
according to the initial temperature of the food being fried and the
temperature indicated on the packaging of the food.

Care and Cleaning
Before cleaning, always unplug from the mains socket and ensure
that both the appliance and the oil are completely cool.
Never immerse the deep fryer in water and never place it under
running tap water. If water gets into the appliance, it could cause
electric shock.The lid can be washed in a dishwasher.To remove,
open and lift upwards.Wash the bowl with hot water and washing
up liquid. Rinse and dry thoroughly.The basket can be washed in a
dishwasher. For models with non-stick bowl, never use abrasive
objects or detergents to clean the bowl. Clean with a soft cloth
and neutral detergent only.
Maintenance of the anti-odour filter
Removable filter: over time, the anti-odour filter inside the lid
loses its efficiency.You are therefore recommended to replace it
after every 10/15 frying sessions. To replace, remove the plastic fil-
ter grille.
Permanent filter: the permanent filter does not require repla-
cing as it is cleaned during normal washing of the lid.
