BEFORE FIRST USE
1. Remove all packaging material.
2. Remove any stickers or labels from the appliance.
3. Thoroughly clean the basket and the pan with hot water, some washing-up liquid and a
Note: You can also clean these parts in the dishwasher.
4. Wipe the inside and outside of the appliance with a damp cloth. Fry Delight works by
producing hot air. Do not fill the pan (
) with oil or frying fat.
PREPARING FOR USE
1. Place the appliance on a flat, stable, heat-resistant work surface away from water splashes.
2. Place the basket in the pan (
) properly until it clicks into place.
Pull the mains cord out of the cord storage compartment in the bottom of the appliance.
Do not fill the pan with oil or any other liquid.
Do not put anything on top of the appliance. This disrupts the airflow and affects the
hot air frying result.
USING THE APPLIANCE
Fry Delight can prepare a large range of recipes. Online recipes at www.tefal.co.uk will help you
get to know the appliance. Cooking times for the main foods are given in the section ‘Cooking
Hot air frying
1. Connect the power supply cord to an electrical socket.
2. Carefully pull the pan out of the Fry Delight.
Note: DO NOT press the basket release button (B) when removing the pan from the
appliance. Only use the basket release button for releasing the basket from the pan.
3. Place the food in the basket.
Note: Never fill the basket beyond the MAX level mark or exceed the maximum amount
indicated in the table (see into section ‘Cooking Guide’), as this could affect the quality
of the end result.
4. Slide the pan back into the Fry Delight. Never use the pan without the basket in it.
Caution: Do not touch the pan during use and for some time after use, as it gets very
hot. Only hold the pan by the handle.
5. Move the temperature control knob to the required temperature. See section ‘Cooking
Guide’ to select the right temperature
6. Select the required cooking time (
see section Cooking Guide’
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.
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 basket 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.
• Excess oil from the food is collected in the bottom of the pan.
8. Some foods require shaking halfway through the cooking time (see section ‘Cooking
Guide’). To shake the food, pull the pan out of the appliance by the handle and shake it.
Then slide the pan back into the Fry Delight.
Caution: Do not press the basket release button (B) during shaking.
Tip: To reduce the weight of the pan, you can remove the basket from the pan and shake
the basket only. To do so, pull the pan out of the appliance (do not press the basket release
button), place it on a heat-resistant surface and press the basket release button and lift the
basket out of the pan.
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.
Because the Air Pulse technology instantly reheats the air inside the appliance, pulling the
pan briefly out of the appliance during hot air frying barely disturbs the process.
9. When you hear the timer sound, the cooking time set has finished. Pull the pan out of the
appliance (do not press the basket release button) 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.
10. Check if the food is ready.
If the food is not ready yet, simply slide the pan back into the appliance and set the timer
for a few extra minutes.
Tip: To remove large or fragile foods, use a pair of tongs to lift the food out of the basket.
11. When the food is cooked, take out the pan and press the basket release button (B) and lift
the basket out of the pan. Tip the contents of the basket onto a plate.
: Do not turn the basket upside down with the pan still attached to it, as any excess
oil that has collected on the bottom of the pan will leak onto the food.
After hot air frying, the pan and the food are very hot. Depending on the type of food
cooked in the Fry Delight, be careful as steam may escape from the pan.
12. When a batch of food is ready, the Fry Delight 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.
The cooking times in the tables are based on pre-heating the appliance empty for 3 minutes.

MAKING HOME-MADE CHIPS AND FRIES
For the best results, we advise to use frozen chips and french fries. 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, olive, etc) 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 basket.
Note: Do not tip the bowl of oil coated chips directly into the basket in one go, otherwise
excess oil will end up at the bottom of the pan.
5. Fry the chips according to the instructions in the section Cooking guide.
Clean the appliance after every use.
The pan and the basket 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.
1. Remove the mains plug from the wall socket and let the appliance cool down. Note: Remove
the pan to let the Fry Delight cool down more quickly.
2. Wipe the outside of the appliance with a damp cloth.
3. Clean the pan and basket with hot water, some washing-up liquid and a non-abrasive
You can use a degreasing liquid to remove any remaining dirt.
Note: The pan and basket are dishwasher-safe.
Tip: If dirt is stuck to the basket or the bottom of the pan, fill the pan with hot water
and some washing-up liquid. Put the basket in the pan and let the pan and the basket
soak for approximately 10 minutes. Then rinse clean and dry.
4. Wipe inside of the appliance with hot water and a damp cloth.
5. Clean the heating element with a dry, cleaning brush to remove any food residues.
6. Do not immerse the appliance in water or any other liquid.
1. Unplug the appliance and let it cool down.
