The fat must be
filtered regularly.
Scraps that break
away from foods
tend to burn and
cause the fat to
change more rapidly,
as well as risking
igniting over time.

Store the fat

Turn off the fryer and wait until the oil
has completely cooled.

With a sieve, collect the small pieces of
food left in the fat.

Store the fat in the deep fryer, or keep it
in the fridge in a separate container
(recommended if you do not use the
deep fryer often).

Filter the fat

With a filter paper (available from
approved Service Centres).

Wait for the fat to become lukewarm.

Empty the fat gently into a pan.

Place a filter paper in the bottom of the
basket.

Clean inside the bowl.

Place the basket and filter paper into the
deep fryer (handle in the upper
position).

Pour the fat carefully back into the bowl.

Throw the filter paper away and clean
the basket.

With a filtering container
maximum capacity: 2.4 l (available
from approved Service Centres).

Maintenance

Change the fat after
being used for a
maximum of 8 to 12
times each time.
“Clean” fat keeps the
flavour and lightness
of foods.

Renew the fat

Do not pour used fat into the sink.
Leave it to cool and throw it away with
the household waste.

Change the cartridge
each time the deep
fryer has been used a
maximum of 40 to 50
times.

Replace 

the Anti-odour cartridge 

(available from approved Service Centres)

When the cartridge’s saturation
indicator is dark red, change the
cartridge.

Slide out the filter compartment cover.

Replace the cartridge, with the
saturation indicator upwards.

Put back the cover so that you hear a
“click”.

Cleaning

Remove and wipe
the cartridge before
washing it.

Clean the window
each time the deep
fryer has been used
8 to 12 times.

Clean the lid

To lift off the lid, push the flap
backwards.

You can clean your lid in a dishwasher.

Dry the lid, before replacing it and the
cartridge in the fryer.

• 

To ensure good visibility, clean the

viewing window by wiping it with a
sponge and lemon juice.

Allow the window to dry at room

temperature or dry with a clean cotton
cloth.

To preserve its non-
stick properties
longer, do not use
any metal tools.

However, if your
bowl does become
misshapen, have it
replaced by your
nearest approved
Service Centre.

Never place the
equipment in water.
Do not use
aggressive or
abrasive products.

Clean the removable bowl

Browning and scratches that may
appear after prolonged use do not
cause any problems.

We guarantee that the non-stick coating
COMPLIES WITH REGULATIONS
regarding materials coming into contact
with foodstuffs.

You can clean your bowl in a
dishwasher. Take care not to damage its
coating with the dishwasher shelves.

Try not to damage the shape of your
bowl through bumps or being dropped.

Clean the outside of the deep fryer with
a damp cloth. Dry it carefully.

If your basket is
misshapen, have it
replaced by your
nearest approved
Service Centre.

Clean the basket

Separate the basket and handle.

Wash the basket with large quantities of
water and washing up liquid.

Dry it.
