hot oil. Never obstruct the air vents.

•  We suggest that you always defrost frozen food before 

frying it.

•  Please Note:

 Do not use solid cooking oil, fat, butter, 

margarine, or olive oil. Solid cooking fat of any kind 

will overheat and burn out the element. Olive oil 

contains too much water and it’s smoking point is too 

low for deep frying. Buy a good quality liquid cooking 

oil suitable for deep frying like sunflower or corn 

oil. Don’t mix oils of different types, as they’ll have 

different temperature characteristics.

•  Important:

 The oil pan is permanently fixed inside the 

fryer,  you should never attempt to remove it.

•  Short Cord Instructions: CAUTION:

 A short power 

cord is provided to reduce the risk of personal injury 

from entanglement in or tripping over a longer power

An extension cord or longer 

detachable cord is not recommended for use with 

deep-fat fryers and cooker/fryers.

•  Electric Power:

 if the electric circuit is overloaded 

with any other appliance, your appliance may not 

operate. It should be operated on a separate electrical 

circuit from other appliances. If you are not sure of the 

reason of overloading or cannot find a separate circuit, 

contact a qualified electrician.

•  ASDA does not recommend allowing children to 

operate this appliance.

How to look after your fryer


Unplug the fryer, and leave it to cool down fully. 


If you intend to move the fryer without emptying it, take care, it’ll be heavy. 


Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents, solvents or alcohol. 


To avoid the build up of jelly-like deposits, it’s best to clean the deep fryer after every 

few uses. If you leave it too long, solid layers of oil will build up.

How to clean the fryer


Make sure the fryer is unplugged and the temperature adjuster is in the off position.


Only clean the fryer when it is completely cold.


Press the open button and open the lid entirely, remove the lid from the body.


Lift up the basket handle to its highest position until you hear a click. Remove the 

basket from the pot.


Clean the outer shell with a clean damp cloth. Do not scrub or use abrasive cleaners.

How to clean the lid


Remove the filter before cleaning the filter cover.


Wash the filter cover with warm soapy water. Rinse and dry. Do not wash in a dish 


How to clean the basket


Wash the basket with warm soapy water, rinse and dry.

How to clean the oil pan


Pour the cold oil out and dispose of.


Wipe any oil off the pot with kitchen towel


Wash the pot out with warm soapy water, rinse and dry.


Wash the basket in warm soapy water, rinse thoroughly and leave to air dry.  


Wipe all other surfaces with a damp cloth.  


With use, the basket and bowl will discolour. This is inevitable and harmless and 

won’t affect the operation of the fryer.

Hints & tips...


Never operate the fryer without oil or fat in it.


Always use oil and fats which will withstand high temperatures e.g. sunflower oil or 

coin oil.


Do not mix different types of oil or fat.


Change the oil or fat when it becomes brown after cooking.


When frying, oil may take on the flavour of other foods that are being fried. 

Therefore, fry strong flavoured foods such as fish after cooking light flavoured foods 

like chips to avoid cross flavouring the food.


Fry foods of similar size together to avoid over or under cooking.


Food for frying must be completely dry before frying to avoid the oil overflowing the 

and also the make the oil last longer.


When preparing potato based food (chips, fries etc.) cut them up and wash them in 

cold water to remove any excess starch. This will prevent them from sticking together 

when fried. Dry thoroughly before frying.


Do not over fill the basket, the oil temperature will drop making the food greasy and 

prevent the it from crisping.


Do not keep the oil at a high temperature for long periods of time. It will lose its 

properties and need replacing.


Set the temperature to the lowest setting between frying batches.


Do not leave food in the basket to drain for to long. The vapour from the oil could 

cause the food to loose its crispness and go soft.


Only use metal utensils, never use plastic as they will melt.


Use caution when frying items such as flour tortillas for tortilla chips and deep fried 

enchiladas. The oil can become trapped in bubbles and if not properly drained  will 

burst and burn. Allow the oil to drain for a few minutes before serving.


Seasoning directly after frying is recommended as the seasoning will adhere to the 

food and will help preserve your oil.


Beware of steam: It is normal for steam to be come out of the vents and when 

opening the lid. Be careful when opening the lid after frying your food.


Always allow the fryer to cool before removing the oil or cleaning.


You can reuse the oil providing  it is properly strained though a coffee filter, cheese 

cloth or strainer and it is the tightly sealed in a container and not exposed to light or 

air as this will allow it to go off. You can refrigerate the oil to keep it longer.


Change the oil regularly, depending on your own needs.


Replace the oil if it changes colour, smells rancid, smokes excessively when heated or 

starts to foam.


Food will crisp better if cooked in small batches.


Never pour used oil down the sink. Check with your local waste disposal service for 

more advice.
