Children shall not play with the appliance. Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be made by children without supervision. •  Never leave the power cord dangling over the edge of the worktop. Never let it come into contact with a hot or wet surface. • Always unplug the appliance after using it and before it is cleaned. Never tug on the power cord to unplug it. •  Never use the appliance after it has fallen or been dropped. Take it to a Magimix approved service agent to be checked. •  The appliance is not intended to be operated by means of an external timer or a separate remote control system. •  If the power cord has been damaged or your appliance has broken down, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, a service agent or a similarly qualified person, in order to avoid all possible danger. • never exceed the oil maximum quantity. • Always use your deep fryer on a stable, level worktop, away from splashing water. • Before filling it with oil, make sure there is no water left at the bottom of the frying bowl, as this may cause the oil to splash and foam over without warning. • Never mix different types of fat. If possible, use vegetable oil. •  Never switch your deep fryer on if the bowl is empty or if the oil is below the minimum level. • Remove any excess ice from frozen foods before frying. •  Before moving/storing/maintaining your appliance, make sure you have unplugged it and wait until the oil is completely cold. • When you have finished using your appliance, always remember to unplug it. • If you hear noises in the deep fryer after it has been used, change the oil. • In the case of models with a metal lid, never fry food with the lid on. • Never put the lid on when the oil is cooling down.

5 USE Unwind the power cord and plug it in. Check that the control unit is properly fixed. Pour in the oil. Never exceed the MAX level. Turn the thermostat to the required cooking temperature (see Cooking Hints, page 8). Wash all the parts and dry them carefully. Turn the timer. Both indicator lights will come on. Place the food in the basket. When the orange indicator light goes out, slowly lower the basket into the oil. For quantities and cooking times, see page 8. *According to model Never mix different types of cooking fat. We recommend you use vegetable oil. For models with a filter lid, you can use your deep fryer with the lid off to obtain crispier french fries - just like a professional chef. For safety reasons, your deep fryer will only work if the control unit is correctly positioned. It is vital to dry all parts of the fryer carefully before use. To prevent the element from overheating, make sure that the oil reaches the minimum level so that it covers the heating element. As frozen french fries have a higher water content than fresh ones, we recommend you fry them in smaller batches. Between batches, carefully drain and wipe the filter lid to remove any condensation. Never put the lid back on the fryer after cooking the final batch, when it is in the cooling- down phase. Place the filter lid on the fryer*. At the end of the cooking time, the timer will ring and the indicator light will go out. TIPS
Page: 5
6 USE Remove the food from the basket. Remove the lid* and attach the basket to the resting hook. Allow the basket to drain. Turn the thermostat back to 0° C. Ensure the black charcoal filter is replaced after every 10 uses. To access the filters, take out the removable holder. Remove both the black charcoal filter and the metallic permanent anti-fat filter. Put the holder back in place. Wait for the heating element to cool down. Then reset the fuse by pressing Reset. Filter lid Never move your deep fryer while the fat or oil is still hot *According to model SAFETY CUT-OUT Where to purchase your filters: either from your retailer or by returning the order form enclosed with your appliance. You can also buy cut-to-fit filter sheets from electrical retailers. The safety cut-out avoids any abnormal rise in temperature. If it is triggered, the deep fryer will automatically switch itself off.

7 Aftercare The bowl, basket and lid can be washed in water with washing- up liquid and are all dishwasher-safe. Wipe the housing with a soft cloth. Wipe the control unit and heating element with a soft cloth. Storage: the basket handle folds away to save space. Before carrying out aftercare / storage, unplug your deep fryer and leave it to cool down for at least an hour. Always filter the oil after using it to remove any carbonized particles. The oil level will go down each time you use your deep fryer. Replace the oil when it turns dark, becomes dirty, starts to foam abnormally or if you hear noises after using the deep fryer. We recommend that you change the oil after 8 to 10 uses. Never mix new cooking fat or oil with used oil. If you do not often use your deep fryer, store the oil in a sealed container. Cleaning Prior to aftercare / storage, unplug your deep fryer and wait for it to cool down for at least an hour. Ensure you take out the removable filter before putting the lid in the dishwasher. The control unit and heating element must never be immersed in water or rinsed under the tap. 180°C The arrow on the corner of the bowl indicates which way to pour the oil out. Filter the oil using a metal sieve or special filter paper. Impurities sink to the cool zone under the heating element. Carefully pour away the oil once it has cooled.

9 TIPS Oil •  Use a special cooking oil which can withstand high temperatures without deteriorating. •  Never mix different types of oil. We recommend you use a vegetable oil. •  To make the oil or fat last longer, do not season or flavour the food during the cooking process, or while the basket is above the bowl. •  Always filter the oil after using your deep fryer to remove any carbonised particles. • After you have used your deep fryer 8 or 10 times, change the oil. •  If you do not use you deep fryer often, transfer the oil to a sealed container. When transferring the oil, make sure you never mix fresh and used fats. Cooking Hints • For a really crispy result, dry all foods thoroughly prior to frying. •  In the case of frozen products, remove any excess ice and wait for the oil to reach the right temperature before frying them. Fry them in smaller batches than you would fresh french fries. As they cook, they will release water, causing the oil to boil more fiercely and will increase the risk of splashing. •  To fry meat, fish, poultry, doughnuts, etc… we recommend that you lower the empty basket into the deep fryer before adding the food. This way, you will avoid them sticking to the basket. •  Before serving, fasten the basket to the hook and wait for it to drain a little above the oil. Drain the food after frying on kitchen paper. French fries •  For the best results, choose Maris Piper potatoes for your french fries. To prevent them from sticking to each other, immerse them in hot water and wait until the water becomes clear, to remove as much starch as possible. Dry them thoroughly using a tea towel. The french fries must be dry before being fried. •  French fries and other foods will colour more evenly if you shake the basket carefully from time to time while they are cooking.

36 Desserts Ice cream fritters Serves 4 500g chocolate ice cream (slightly soft) 100g plain flour 1 egg 120g desiccated coconut Oil for frying Preparation: 20min. Cooking: 1 to 2min. Refrigeration: 3 hrs + overnight (prepare the day before so that the coconut coating does not disintegrate) Using an ice cream scoop, form 4 large balls of ice cream. Place each ball in the centre of a piece of cling film, bring the corners together and twist tightly, in order to shape the ice cream into perfect spheres. Return to the freezer for 2 hours. Using a whisk, mix the egg with 75g of flour, then add just enough water to obtain a thick batter. Cover and leave to stand at room temperature. Sprinkle the coconut and remaining 25g of flour onto two flat plates. Unwrap the ice cream balls. Roll them in the flour, then the batter and finally the coconut, moving them round with a fork to coat them thoroughly. Wrap up again and put back into the freezer. After an hour, repeat the whole operation, unwrapping them, rolling them in the flour, batter and coconut. This time, leave them in the freezer overnight. The next day, when you are ready to serve, heat the deep fryer to 180°C. Place the fritters in the basket, lower them into the oil and cook for 1 to 2 minutes until the coating is golden brown. Drain in the basket, then on kitchen paper. Serve straightaway.
