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

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.

food only requires a slightly shorter cooking time.

MAKING HOME-MADE CHIPS
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.
The bowl and the grid have a non-stick coating. Do not use metal kitchen utensils or
abrasive cleaning materials to clean them, as this may damage the nonstick coating.

minutes. Then rinse clean and dry.
