7.  To switch on the appliance, turn the timer knob to the required cooking time.

Add 3 minutes to the cooking time stated in the tables on pages 7 and 8 when using 
the appliance from cold.
To set a short time, turn the timer knob until 10 minutes and then go back to the 
desired time.
Note: If you want, you can also let the appliance preheat without any food inside. In 
this case, turn the timer knob to more than 3 minutes and wait until the heating-up 
light goes out (after approx. 3 minutes). Then fill the bowl and turn the timer knob 
to the required cooking time (see Cooking Guide for timings).

•  The timer starts counting down the set cooking time.
•  The heating-up light goes on.
•   During the hot air frying process, the heating-up light goes on and off from time to 

time. This indicates that the heating element is switched on and off to thermostatically 
maintain the set temperature.

8.  Excess oil from the food is collected in the bottom of the bowl.
9.  Some foods require shaking halfway through the cooking time (see section ‘Cooking 

Guide’). To shake the food, pull the bowl out of the appliance by the handle and shake it. 
Then slide the bowl back into the Easy Fry.
Tip: You can set the timer to half of the cooking time, and when the timer sounds shake 
the ingredients. Then set the timer again for the remaining cooking time.

10.  When you hear the timer sound, the cooking time set has finished. Pull the bowl out of 

the appliance and place it on a heat-resistant surface.
Note: You can also switch off the appliance manually. To do this, turn the timer 
control knob to 0.

11. Check if the food is ready.

 If the food is not ready yet, simply slide the bowl back into the appliance and set the 
timer for a few extra minutes.

12.  When the food is cooked, take out the bowl. To remove food, use a pair of tongs to lift 

the food out of the bowl. 


: When you turn the bowl, be careful of any excess oil collected at the bottom of 

the bowl that may leak onto the food and the grid which may fall out.
After hot air frying, the bowl, the grid and the food are very hot. Depending on the type 
of food cooked in the Easy Fry, be careful as steam may escape from the bowl.

13.  When a batch of food is ready, the Easy Fry is instantly ready for preparing another 

batch of food.

The table below helps you to select the basic settings for the food you want to prepare. 

Note: The cooking times below are only a guide and may vary according to the variety 
and batch of potatoes used. For other foods the size, shape and brand may affect results. 
Therefore, you may need to adjust the cooking time slightly.

IMPORTANT: To avoid damaging your appliance, never exceed the maximum quantities of ingredients and 
liquids indicated in the instruction manual and in the recipes.

***place a cake tin/oven dish in the bowl (silicon, stainless steel, aluminium, terracotta 
oven dish).

When you use mixtures that rise (such as with cake, quiche or muffins) the oven dish should 
not be filled more than halfway.


•   Smaller foods usually require a slightly shorter cooking time than larger size foods.
•   A larger amount of food only requires a slightly longer cooking time, a smaller amount of 

food only requires a slightly shorter cooking time.

•   Shaking smaller size foods halfway through the cooking time improves the end result 

and can help prevent uneven cooking.

•   Add some oil to fresh potatoes for a crispy result. After adding a spoon of oil, fry the 

potatoes within a few minutes.

•  Do not cook extremely greasy foods in the Easy Fry.
•  Snacks that can be cooked in an oven can also be cooked in the Easy Fry.
•  The optimal recommended quantity for cooking fries is 700 grams.
•   Use ready made puff and shortcrust pastry to make filled snacks quickly and easily. 
•   Place an oven dish in the Easy Fry bowl if you want to bake a cake or quiche or if you 

want to fry fragile ingredients or filled ingredients. You can use an oven dish in silicon, 
stainless steel, aluminium, terracotta.

•   You can also use the Easy Fry to reheat food. To reheat food, set the temperature to 

160°C for up to 10 minutes.


For the best results, we advise to use frozen chips. If you want to make home-made chips, 
follow the steps below.
1.   Choose a variety of potato recommended for making chips. Peel the potatoes and cut 

them into equal thickness chips.

2.   Soak the potato chips in a bowl of cold water for at least 30 minutes, drain them and dry 

them with a clean, highly absorbent tea towel. Then pat with paper kitchen towel. The 
chips must be thoroughly dry before cooking.

3.   Pour ½ tablespoon of oil (vegetable, sunflower or olive) in a dry bowl, put the chips on top 

and mix until they are coated with oil.

4.   Remove the chips from the bowl with your fingers or a kitchen utensil so that any excess 

oil stays behind in the bowl. Place the chips in the bowl.

Note: Do not tip the container of oil coated chips directly into the bowl in one go, 
otherwise excess oil will end up at the bottom of the bowl.

5.  Fry the chips according to the instructions in the section Cooking guide.


Clean the appliance after every use.
