- Beware of inexpert handling!
- Old and dirty oil or frying fat can represent a real fi-
re hazard; make sure only new oil or frying fat are
used each time you start frying.
- The food you intend to fry should always be dry;
wet food causes the oil to foam and overflow.
- Frying excessively large quantities of food at a ti-
me also causes the oil to foam; never exceed 0,8 kg.
- If the level of oil in the bath falls below the low le-
vel mark stamped on it, the risk of fire will increase.
- Never leave the appliance on without any oil in it.
The lid delivered with the appliance should always
be kept within easy reach. In case of fire, it should
be used to douse the flames.
