Control Panel

Control Panel


  • Remove the plug from the socket.
  • Fill the container with oil or hydrogenated oil until the H – mark (MAX level) line.
    Note! Solid fats must be preheated before filling, this avoids burnt fat and overloading.
  • Plug the earthed plug into an earthed socket.
  • Set the thermostat to the desired temperature.
    The orange lamp will light.
  • When the set temperature is reached, the orange lamp goes out.
  • You can now use the deep fryer.


The deep fryer is designed with a unique cold zone to allow crumbs and residue to sink to the bottom this also enables the usable life of the fat/oil to extend considerably.

Regularly check if there is sufficient oil or fat in the container. The level should never be below the MIN line.

RESET the Hi-limiter (thermal cut-out)

Please note that the RESET button is located at the bottom of the detachable control panel with a protective cap (See line drawing)

  • Unplug the deep fryer from the electrical outlet first.
  • Allow the deep fryer to completely cool down.
  • Remove the detachable control panel from the support.
  • Unscrew the black protective cap of the RESET button.
  • Press the RESET button of the Hi-limiter (thermal cut-out). You should hear a click sound.
  • Screw back the protective cap on the RESET button.
  • Reinstall the detachable control panel on the support.
    RESET the Hi-limiter (thermal cut-out)

Deep frying tips

  • Only use liquid frying oil or fat (preferably).
  • The recommended temperature for frying chips and snacks is 175°C max.
  • Heat the oil slowly. Preferably in 3 steps for example first at 100°C, then from 100-140°C and later from 140°C to 175°C with 15 minute breaks between steps.
  • Remove ice and crumbs from frozen foods.
  • Do not deep-fry too much at one time. This can cause the oil or fat to cool down too much. Cooled down oil/fat does not properly sear the surface of the food, so that more fat will be absorbed. The ideal proportion of frozen products to frying oil/ fat is 1:10 maximum.
  • When used intensively, crumbs and other debris should be filtered out of the oil/fat.
  • Replace oil or fat in time. Use test strips or test equipment regularly to track when oil/fat should be replaced.
  • If oil or fat starts to foam, smoke or gets too viscous you should replace it. Also replace the oil/fat when it has a strong smell or taste.

Solid Fat

  • If you use against our advice solid fat anyway: heat the oil slowly in the lowest position until melted. When the fat has melted you can set the proper frying temperature.
  • When using solid fat, allow the blocks of fat to melt slowly on a moderate heat in a normal frying pan. Carefully pour the melted fat into the deep fat fryer. Plug in the mains plug and switch on the deep fat fryer.
  • Remove the deep frying basket after use from the fat. This prevents the basket becoming stuck in the solidified fat.

After use

  • Turn off the appliance by switching off the switch and removing the plug from the socket.
  • Remove the basket from the fat. This avoids the basket becoming stuck in the solidified fat.
  • Put the lid on the deep fryer, so that the fat does not age.

Cleaning and maintenance

  • Always remove the plug from the socket before cleaning the appliance.
  • Beware: Never immerse the appliance in water or any other liquid!
  • Clean the outside of the appliance with a damp cloth (water with mild detergent).
  • Never use aggressive cleaning agents or abrasives. Do not use any sharp or pointed objects.
    Do not use petrol or solvents! Clean with a damp cloth and detergent if necessary. Do not use abrasive materials.
  • Do not clean the appliance with steam cleaner or water jet.
  • Assemble the appliance after cleaning and make sure that the heating & control panel is mounted properly, otherwise the appliance will not function.
