Use of the Smart Fryer™

  • When the timer finished counting down, the elements will not turn off. They will remain on until the START/CANCEL button is pushed.
  • If the TIMER button is pushed without a set time, instead of the timer counting down it will count up to show how long the ingredients have been cooking
  • When the timer is counting up or down and is pushed once, it will pause. It will continue counting if pushed again. To reset, push the TIMER button twice in rapid succession
  • If using the lid during and immediately after cooking, steam may rise through the filter vent openings on the lid. This is normal, however avoid touching this area during cooking as the steam generates is at a very high temperature. As the basket gets very hot, only use the handle to hold or carry the basket for serving. Ensure that the handle is locked into position.
  • Solid oil products, such as butter, margarine or animal fats of any kind should not be used in the deep fryer as they may overheat and cause a fire hazard.
  • Water and oil do not mix – never add water or any other liquid to hot oil. Even small amounts of water will cause the oil to splatter.
  • Do not touch or block the steam ventilation area on the lid. The fryer will generate a lot of heat and steam during and after the cooking process
  • Do not move the deep fryer during cooking and allow it to cool before removing the oil to avoid any splashing outside of the oil vessel.
  • If cooking large quantities of food (approximately 1.25 to 1.75lbs), it is not recommended to cook with the lid on due to the possible build up of excess condensation.
  • Do not overfill the basket. Large quantities of food may cause the oil to bubble and overflow. Small batches of food cook much better.
  • Oil should be filtered after each use and stored in a clean, airtight container in a cool area. Good quality oil can be used several times. Do not store oil in the Smart Fryer™. Discard used oil in a sealed container with household waste. Do not pour down a sink or drain.
