A – body of the fryer

  • A1 – drip tray
  • A2 – container (frybacket) for frying ingredients
  • A3 – handle
  • A4 – safety button cover
  • A5 – container locking latch A2
  • A6 – air outlet
  • A7 – power cable
  • A8 – switch/timer (0-30 min.)
  • A9 – temperature setting (80-200 °C)
  • A10 – operation indicator
  • A11 – heating indicatoreta-6172-Air-Fryer-fig-1


Before the first use, wash the parts that will be in contact with food in hot water with detergent, rinse thoroughly with clean water and wipe till dry, or let dry. A short mild emission of smoke may occur, this is not a defect and is no reason for complaint. Now the appliance is ready for use.

Assembly of the individual parts
Assemble the fryer according to Fig. 1. The A2 frying container can be removed from the A1 drip tray mechanism after pressing the safety button (latch A5), located under the A4 cover. Then slide the container back in the opposite direction and slide the A4 cover to prevent accidental pressing of the A5 latch.

Place the assembled fryer on a flat surface (e.g. kitchen table) at a height of at least 85 cm, out of reach of children. Fill the container with the desired ingredients (observe the maximum amount marked with the MAX line) and assemble the whole fryer properly. Connect the plug of the A7 power cable to the mains. Timer control dial A8 – it also works as a switch. Set the required heating time in the range of 3-30 min. When the timer reaches 0, you will hear a cling and the fryer will switch off. If a manual switch-off is required, turn the dial manually to 0 (counterclockwise). If the preparation is complete while the timer is counting down, always set it manually to 0 (off).

Temperature setting control dial A9 – set the required temperature to 80-200 °C (information about the required temperature can be found on the food label or in the table of this manual). When the cooking is finished, always turn the control dial to.

When the fryer (timer) is in operation, the A10 operation indicator light turns on. Active heating is signaled by the A11 heating indicator. When the set temperature is reached, the A11 heating indicator switches off. When the time set elapses, the appliance will turn off automatically (you will hear a signal sound). After frying, use the handle to carefully pull out the A2 container with ingredients and leave to cool down for a while. Depending on the nature of the cooked ingredients, pour out any liquids from the A1 drip tray.
During the course of the function, the temperature and time may be changed. Termination of the function is accompanied by an audible signal. The heater switches off.

By taking the frying pot out, the appliance’s functioning is interrupted. After reinserting the pot, the set function will continue.

The recommended temperature and time of various menus are as follows:

ingredients, and the taste of each user may be different.

The table is for your reference only.

Some ingredients require stirring or shaking during cooking. However, never press the locking latch of the handle – it only serves to deliberately pull out the A2 container/fry basket from the A1 drip tray. At the same time, do not turn or tilt the container excessively when shaking, the drip tray may contain hot liquid.


Before carrying out any maintenance disconnect the appliance from the power grid by pulling out the plug on the power cord from the el. socket and allow it to cool down! After each use wipes the outer surfaces with a soft damp cloth. Do not use abrasive and aggressive cleaning agents and metal tools, which could scratch the surface during cleaning. Wipe the outer casing with a damp cloth. Wash both containers (frybacket) in hot water with detergent, then rinse with clean water and allow to dry sufficiently (do not use the dishwasher). If necessary, gentle degreasing agents can be used on these parts. Carefully wipe the inside of the fryer base using a damp cloth or a non-abrasive cleaning sponge. If necessary, remove residual dirt from the heater using a cleaning brush.

Never dry plastic molded parts above a heat source (e.g. fire stoves, electric/gas stoves, etc.). It is normal for the color of the surface to change over time. This change in no way changes the properties of the surface and is not a reason for complaint about the appliance! Wipe the power cord A7 with a cloth. Store the appliance thoroughly cleaned in a dry, dust-free location that is out of reach of children and incapacitated persons.
