INTRODUCTION
The air fryer provides an easy and healthier way of cooking your favorite foods. By applying rapid air circulation from all directions additional to a top grill, it is able to cook a variety of dishes without adding any oil or adding just a little oil to specific ingredients in the table shown in this booklet.

BEFORE USING AIR FRYER

  1. Remove all the packing materials including any in the pan.
  2. Slide out the pans, take out the drip trays by straightly pulling up. Clean pans and drip trays with a non-abrasive sponge, with hot water and dish washing liquid. Rinse with clean water and set aside to dry.
  3. Wipe clean the inside and outside of the appliance with a moist soft cloth.
  4. Place the appliance on a stable, horizontal, flat and heat resistant surface.
    IMPORTANT! Place the appliance on a heat-resistant surface only. Not recommended to use directly on laminated / vinyl bench top. To prevent heat damage to surface underneath, placing the air fryer on an insulated heat pad is recommended.

COOKING WITH YOUR AIR FRYER

  1. Connect the supply cord plug into a mains power outlet socket. The appliance is now in standby mode.
  2. Place the ingredients into the pans.
    Do not fill more than 2kg food in each basket.
  3. Slide the pans back into the appliance.
    CAUTION! Do not touch the pans during use or immediately after use, as the pans gets very hot during and after cooking. Only hold by the handle.
  4. Touch the power button. Select the pan to set the cooking process.
  5. Select a preset function or set the time and temperature manually for the pans one by one. Then touch the start buttons to start cooking.
  6. For cooking of some ingredients, it may require turning the contents in the basket or adding small quantity of oil in the cooking ingredients during the cooking process to ensure even cooking and avoid charring of ingredients positioned at the top of the basket. When this is needed, you can pull out the pan. The appliance will stop heating automatically. After turning or adding oil, place the pan back into the appliance to resume cooking.
    NOTE: You may slide out the pan to check at any time during the cooking process. The appliance will pause when the pan is taken out or powered off. The appliance will continue the cooking process if the pan is slide in and it will power on again.
  7. You can reset the time and temperature setting during the cooking process if required.
  8. When you hear the “beep-beep” sound, the set time is elapsed, and the cooking cycle is completed. The appliance is now in standby mode.
  9. Check if the ingredients are cooked to your satisfaction. If not, set the timer for a few more minutes until the ingredients are cooked to your satisfaction.
  10. Remove the pan from the appliance. Only hold by the handle as other surfaces will be hot. Place the pan on a flat, firm, and heat-resistant surface. During the cooking process, oil from food will drip and be collected on the bottom of the pan. This can be cleaned at the end of the cooking process when the pan cools down.
  11. After using your appliance, remove the plug from the wall socket immediately and allow the appliance to cool down completely.
    CAUTION!
    Beware of escaping steam from the pan, as there is a danger of scalding. Do not turn the pan with ingredients upside down when tipping the contents onto a dish. Excess oil may have collected in the pan, it could drip out and cause scalding.

IMPORTANT! NEVER LEAVE THE UNIT UNATTENDED WHEN IN USE.

Tips:

  1. Smaller ingredients usually require a shorter cooking time than larger ingredients.
  2. A larger amount of ingredients will require a longer cooking time.
  3. Turning smaller ingredients halfway during the cooking process will provide better cooking results and can help prevent unevenly fried ingredients.
  4. To remove large individual or delicate ingredients from the basket, do not tip them out. Pick them up with a pair of tongs.
  5. Do not prepare extremely greasy ingredients such as sausages in the air fryer.
  6. Snacks that can be prepared in an oven can also be prepared in the fryer.
  7. Place a baking tin or oven dish in the air fryer pan if you want to bake a cake/quiche or if you want to fry fragile ingredients or filled ingredients.
  8. You can also use the air fryer to reheat ingredients. To reheat ingredients, set the temperature to 150℃ for up to 10 minutes.
  9. For best results with home-made chips, soak the cut chips in water for 30 minutes to remove excess starch. Dry on kitchen paper and toss in 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil (or lightly spray with olive oil spray) until the chips are coated.
  10. For a crispy home-made coating, mix fine breadcrumbs with a tablespoon of olive oil.
  11. Pre-packed snacks like bread crumbed fish or chicken drumsticks only need to be coated lightly with olive oil.

SETTINGS
To assist with selection of cooking times and maximum basket volumes for specific ingredients, refer to the COOKING MANUAL section below.
NOTE: Please keep in mind that the cooking manual is indicative and for your reference only. Variation in size, shapes and brands may require an increase or decrease of cooking time and temperature setting to achieve the desired and best cooking outcome.
This type of heating technology reheats the air inside the appliance instantly, so pulling the pan briefly out of the appliance to toss/turn ingredients during cooking will barely disturb the process.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Problem Possible cause Solution
The fryer doesn’t work. The appliance is not connected to mains power outlet socket. Connect the appliance into a mains power outlet socket.
The ingredients fried in the fryer are not done. The amount of ingredients

in the pan is too high.

Place smaller batches of ingredients in the pan.

Smaller batches are fried more evenly.

The set temperature is too

low.

Set the temperature to the required temperature

setting (refer to the above cooking manual).

The preparation time is too

short.

Set the timer to the required preparation time.
The ingredients are fried unevenly in the fryer. Certain types of ingredients need to be tossed/turned halfway during the cooking process. Ingredients that lie on top of or across each other (e.g. fries) need to be tossed/turned halfway during the cooking process (refer to the cooking manual).
Fried snacks are not crispy when they come out of the

fryer

You used a type of snacks meant to be prepared in a traditional deep fryer. Use oven snacks or lightly brush some oil onto the snacks for a crisper result.
Can’t slide the pan into the appliance properly There are too much ingredients in the pan. Do not fill too much food in the pan.
The pan is not placed in the

pan properly.

Push the pan down into the pan until you hear a

‘click’.

White smoke comes out from the appliance. You are preparing greasy ingredients. When you fry greasy ingredients in the fryer, a large amount of oil will leak into the pan. The oil produces white smoke and the pan may heat up more than usual. This does not affect the

appliance or the end result.

The pan still contains grease residues from previous use. White smoke is caused by grease heating up in the pan. Make sure you clean the pan properly after each use.
Fresh chips are fried unevenly in the fryer. You did not use the right potato type. Use fresh potatoes and make sure that they stay firm during frying.
You did not rinse the potato chips properly

before you fried them.

Rinse the potato chips properly to remove starch from the outside of the fries.
Fresh chips are not crispy when they come out of the fryer The crispiness of the chips depends on the amount of oil and water in the fries. Make sure to dry the potato chips properly before adding the oil.
Cut the potato chips smaller for a crispier result.
Add slightly more oil for a crisper result.
