RECOMMENDATIONS
• Before use check that the voltage power supply corre-
sponds to the one shown on the appliance data plate.
• Only connect the appliance to electrical sockets
which have a minimum load of 10A and which are
properly earthed. (If the socket and the plug on the
appliance should prove incompatible, get a profes-
sionally qualified technician to replace the socket
with a more suitable one).
• Do not place the appliance near heat sources.
• Should it be necessary to replace the feeder cable,
make sure that it is of the H05VVF 3x1 2mm type.
The replacement cable must conform to the current
norms and be of the same diameter as the original
cable.
• The appliance is hot when it is in use. DO NOT
LEAVE IT WITHIN THE REACH OF CHILDREN.
• Do not move the deep fryer when the oil is hot, as
there it could cause serious burns.
• The deep fryer must only be switched on after it has
been filled with oil or fat. If it is heated up while
empty, a thermal safety device comes into operation
which stops it from working. In this case it is neces-
sary to contact our nearest authorised service centre.
• If the deep fryer leaks oil, contact the technical ser-
vice centre or staff authorised by the Company.
• Before using the deep fryer for the first time, wash
the bowl, the basket and the lid (removing the filters)
carefully with hot water and washing up liquid.
When this has been done, dry carefully.
• It is totally normal that, on first use, the refrigerator emits
a “new appliance” smell. If this happens, aerate the
room.
• The materials and objects likely to come into contact
with foodstuffs conform to EEC Directive 89/109.
• Children or infirm persons should not be allowed to
use this product unsupervised
• Children should not be allowed to play with this
appliance
• To move the appliance, use the special lifting hand-
les (G). (Never lift by the basket handle).
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Filling with oil or fat
• Open the lid by pulling on the opening button
(fig. 1) then take the accessories out.
• Pour about 2 lt of oil, circa into pot (or 1.8 kg. fat).
Best results are obtained by using a good peanut oil. Avoid
mixing different types of oil. If you use lumps of solid fat,
cut them into small pieces so that the deep fryer does not
heat up in the first few minutes without a covering of fat.
Pre-heating
1. Place the food to be fried in the basket. Do not over-
fill the basket (maximum 1 kg of fresh potatoes).
2. Replace the basket in the bowl in the raised posi-
tion and close lid by lightly pushing down until
catch snaps shut.
3. Set the sliding thermostat control (F) (fig. 2) to the
desired temperature (see enclosed table). When
the selected temperature is reached, the control
light will switch off.
Starting to fry
• As soon as the light goes off, lower the
basket into the oil.
To do this:
- Ensure that the handle lock is in the rear posi-
tion;
- Insert the basket handle (B) in the basket (fig. 3)
and lock it securely in place.
Always ensure that the handle lock is
in place when lifting the basket in or
out of the oil.
- Remove the handle and close the lid.
• It is normal for a notable quantity of hot vapour to
escape from the filter cover immediately following
the above mentioned process.
• It is also normal for drops of condensation to fall
from the lid onto the metal or plastic sides of the
appliance while in use.

End of frying time
When the selected frying time is elapsed, rifit basket
handle (fig. 4) and check that food is golden brown
as desired.
In the models fitted with a viewing window this check
can be carried out by looking through the window
without opening the lid.
When the food is completely cooked, switch the
appliance off by setting the thermostat control to
“Off” until the switch is heard to click off. Leave the
contents to drip for a moment and then open the lid
and remove the basket without shaking it too vigo-
rously.
For two-stage frying (e.g. potatoes), lift the basket at
the end of the first stage, wait for the indicator light to
go off and then lower the basket into the oil a second
time (see enclosed table).
FILTERING OF OIL OR FAT
It is advisable to filter the oil or fat after frying in order
to remove any food particles, especially if the food is
coated in breadcrumbs or flour. Food particles remai-
ning in the oil tend to burn, which causes the oil to
deteriorate more quickly.
1. Remove the lid (fig. 5) and empty the tank from one
of its sides (fig. 6 – left or right side edge of the
tank).
2. Use a sponge or a paper kitchen towel to remove
any deposits from the bowl.
3. Hook the basket to the bowl and place the sup-
plied paper filter in the bottom of the basket (fig.
7). Spare filters can be obtained from your dealer
or from our service centres.
4. Pour the oil very slowly into the basket, ensuring
that it does not overflow from the filter (fig. 8).
Note:After filtering the oil, it can be left in the fryer.
However, should a long period of time pass
between one frying and the next, it is advisable
to store the oil in a closed container, not expo-
sed to direct light in order to avoid its deteriora-
tion. Oil used for frying fish should be stored
separately from oil used for other foods.
☛ If fat is used for frying, this should not be
allowed to cool too much, otherwise it may soli-
dify.

CHANGING THE ANTI-ODOUR FILTERS
With time the odour-eater filters placed inside the lid
lose their effectiveness. A change of colour in the filter,
visible through hole of fig.9 on the inside cover, shows
that the filter needs to be changed. To replace it, remo-
ve plastic filter cover (fig.10) by pressing hook in the
direction of arrow 1, then raise it in the direction of
arrow 2. Replace the filters.
Note: The white filter must be inserted first with the black
filter on top. The filter cover must be placed over the
black filter (fig. 11).
CLEANING
Before cleaning, always remove the plug from the
electrical socket.
☛ Never immerse the deep fryer in water or hold it
under the tap. By getting inside the water would
cause short circuiting.
The lid is removable, to take it off, proceed as follows:
push the lid back (see arrow "1" fig. 5 ) and at the
same time, lift it up (see arrow "2" fig. 5 )
Do not immerse the lid in water without having first
removed the filters.
To clean the boiler pan, proceed as follows:
• Check that the oil is sufficiently cold (wait about 2
hours), then empty out the oil or fat as previously
described in the paragraph headed “filtering the oil
or fat”.
• Remove any deposit from the bottom of the bowl
using a sponge or a paper towel.
• Wash the tank with hot water and washing up
liquid, then rinse and empty the tank from one of
the sides, as shown in fig. 6.
• We advise regular cleaning of the basket, with care
being taken to eliminate any deposits.
• The basket can be washed in a dishwasher.
• After frying, wipe the outside of the fryer with a
soft damp cloth in order to remove any oil smears
and condensation.
MODEL WITH NON-STICK BOILER PAN
To clean the boiler pan use a soft cloth with a neutral
detergent never using objects or abrasive detergents.

FRYING NON-FROZEN FOOD
Bear in mind that the cooking times and temperatures are approximate and must regulated according to the
ammount of food which is to be fried and to personale taste.
COOKING HINTS
HOW LONG THE OIL OR FAT LASTS
When oil goes below minimum level mark, add new
oil. It is advisable to remove the oil from time to time
in order to preserve not only the quality of its flavour,
but also the digestibility of the fried food .
The number of times the oil can be used depends on
the type of food you fry. For example, the oil must be
changed more often if food coated in breadcrumbs is
fried frequently.
We advise that the oil be completely changed every
5/8 times or it should be completely changed in the
following circumstances:
• unpleasant odour
• smoke when frying
• becomes dark in colour.
FOR PERFECT FRYING
• The food to be fried should not be lowered into
the oil until the the pilot lamp switches off.
• Do not overfill the basket. Too much food in the
basket lowers the temperature of the oil suddenly,
with the result that the food will be greasy and
unevenly-fried.
• Check that the food is sliced thinly and evenly.
Thick slices will not be fried throughout, although
they will look very attractive on the outside. If the
food is evenly sliced, each slice will be perfectly
fried at the same time.
• Be sure to dry the food carefully before
frying. Damp foods - especially potatoes -
remains soggy after frying. Foods with a high
water content (e.g. fish, meat and vegetables)
should be dipped in breadcrumbs or flour.
Remember to shake off any excess flour or bread-
crumbs before frying.

FRYING FROZEN FOODS
1. Due to their extremely low temperature, frozen
foods inevitably lower the temperature of the oil.
For good results each time you fry, we recommend
you don’t exceed the maximum quantities set out
in the following table.
2. Frozen foods are frequently covered with
a coating of ice crystals, which should be
removed before frying. Lower the basket
very slowly into the oil in order to ensure that the
oil does not boil over.
Before lowering the basket into the oil,
ensure that the lid is securely closed.
3. To obtain best results, do not exceed recommended
max. quantity of food.

The cooking time shown in this table are approximate, and may vary according to the initial temperature of the
food and to the cooking temperature recommended on the packet.
(*) This is the recommended quantity for excellent results. Naturally a larger quantity of frozen potatoes can be
fried, taking into consideration that they will be a little more greasy due to the sudden drop in the tempe-
rature of the oil, upon immersion.
