Practical advice

Oils and fats
Always use oil that can withstand high
temperature.
Do not mix different types of oil or fat.
Change the oil or fat when it becomes brown
after cooking.
Preparing the food
Whatever the recipe used, the food must be
perfectly dry: this will avoid overflowing and
make the oil or fat last longer.
When preparing potato-based food (chips,
crisps, etc.), cut them up and then wash
them in cold water to remove the starch. Dry
them carefully. This will stop them sticking
together.

Cooking
Do not overfill the basket. This will cause the
oil temperature dropping and make the food
greasy.
Do not keep the oil at high temperature for
long periods. This will make it lose its
properties.
Set the temperature controller to the lowest
temperature while waiting between two
batches.
Do not leave the cooked food in the basket in
the draining position too long. The vapors
could cause the food to lose its crispness
and go soft.
Frozen food can be cooked in the basket
without being defrosted.
After cooking
Change the fat or oil regularly, after
approximately 20 batches.

Maintenance

Your Black & Decker tool has been designed to
operate over a long period of time with a
minimum of maintenance. Continuous
satisfactory operation depends upon proper care
and regular cleaning.
Warning! Before performing any maintenance
or cleaning of the Fryer, disconnect the
appliance from the power supply.
Emptying the Fryer
When the Fryer is cool, pour the old oil from the
coking bowl (9) into a suitable container. Always
follow local regulations concerning the disposal
of used cooking oil.
Cleaning
The main housing should be cleaned with a
clean damp cloth only.
