  6. Rotate the time knob to set your desired cooking time. The air fryer will now start cooking and both indicator lights will illuminate.
    NOTE: The temperature and time in the manual are approximated. You can adjust the time and temperature according to the volumes of the ingredients placed in the basket.
    Tips: Before cooking the food, it is better to preheat the appliance without food in the basket by setting the timer to 3 minutes with a temperature set at 180° C.
  7.  For cooking of some ingredients, it may require to turn the contents in the basket or add small quantity oil to the cooking ingredients during the cooking process to ensure even cooking and avoid charring of ingredients positioned at the top of the basket.

After turning or adding oil, place the pan and basket back into the appliance to resume cooking.
    NOTES:
    The timer is not stopped when the pan and basket is pulled out. You can adjust the time and temperature setting at any time during the cooking process.
    The green heating light will go OFF when the air inside reaches the set temperature. And it will light up again when the air temperature inside is lower than your setting.
    WARNING! Do not press the basket release button when tossing/turning the ingredients. Keep the pan attached. Otherwise, the pan could fall onto the floor with the possibility of striking and causing serious injuries and damage to the floor or splashing hot contents from the pan.
  8. When you hear the “click” sound, the set time is elapsed and the cooking cycle is completed. The appliance is now in standby mode with both indicator lights OFF.
  9.  Check if the ingredients are cooked to your satisfaction. If not, set the timer for a few more minutes until it is cooked to your satisfaction.
    Tips: You can set the timer for half of the cooking time. When time elapsed and a “click” sound heard, remove the pan from the appliance to toss/turn the ingredients. When placing the pan back in the appliance again, reset the timer for the balance of the cooking time.

    Tips: To remove large individual or delicate ingredients from the basket, do not tip them out. Pick them up with a pair of tongs.
    During the cooking process, oil from food will drip and be collected on the bottom of the pan. This can be cleaned at the end of the cooking process when the pan has cooled down.
  11. After you have completed using your appliance, remove the plug from the wall socket immediately and allow it to cool down completely.

CAUTION!
Do not press the basket release button to remove the basket from the pan until it is placed on a flat, firm, and heat-resistant surface.

Do not turn the basket with ingredients upside down with the pan attached when tipping the contents onto a dish. Excess oil may have collected in the pan and could drip out and cause scalding.
IMPORTANT! NEVER LEAVE THE UNIT UNATTENDED WHEN IN USE.
SETTINGS
To assist with the selection of cooking times and maximum basket volumes for specific ingredients, refer to the cooking manual section in this booklet.
NOTE: Please keep in mind that the cooking manual is indicative and for your reference only.
Variation in size, shapes, and brands may require an increase or decrease of cooking time and temperature setting to achieve the desired and best cooking outcome.
This type of heating technology reheats the air inside the appliance instantly, so pulling the pan briefly out of the appliance to toss/turn ingredients during cooking will barely disturb the process.
Tips:

  1. Smaller ingredients usually require a shorter cooking time than larger ingredients.
  2. A larger amount of ingredients requires a longer cooking time.
  3. Tossing/turning smaller ingredients halfway during the cooking process optimize the end result and can help prevent unevenly fried ingredients.
  4. Do not prepare extremely greasy ingredients such as sausages with the air fryer.
  5. Snacks that can be prepared in an oven can also be prepared in the fryer.
  6. The optimum amount to prepare crispy chips is 500g.
  7. Place a baking tin or oven dish in the air fryer basket if you want to bake a cake or quiche or if you want to fry fragile ingredients or filler ingredients.
  8. You can also use the air fryer to reheat ingredients. To reheat ingredients, set the temperature to 160℃ for up to 10 minutes.
  9. For best results with homemade chips, soak the cut chips in water for 30 minutes to remove excess starch. Dry on kitchen paper and toss in 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil (or lightly spray with olive oil spray) until the chips are coated.
  10. For a crispy homemade coating, mix fine breadcrumbs with a tablespoon of olive oil.
  11. Pre-packed snacks like bread-crumbed fish or chicken drumsticks only need to be coated lightly with olive oil.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Problem Possible cause Solution
The fryer doesn’t work. The appliance is not connected to the mains power outlet socket. Connect the appliance into a mains power outlet socket.
The ingredients fried in the fryer are not done. The amount of ingredients in the basket is too high. Place smaller batches of ingredients in the basket. Smaller batches are fried more evenly.
The set temperature is too low. Set the temperature to the required temperature selling (refer to the above cooking manual).
The preparation time is too short. Set the timer to the required preparation time.
The ingredients are fried unevenly in the fryer. Certain types of ingredients need to be tossed/turned halfway during the cooking process. Ingredients that lie on top of or across each other (e.g. fries) need to be tossed/turned halfway during the cooking process (refer to the cooking manual).
Fried snacks are not crispy when they come out of the fryer You used a type of snack meant to be prepared in a traditional deep fryer. Use oven snacks or lightly brush some oil onto the snacks for a crisper result.
Can’t slide the pan into the appliance properly There are too many ingredients in the basket. Do not fill the ingredients over the “MAX” mark in the basket.
The basket is not placed in the pan properly. Push the basket down into the pan until you hear a ‘click’.
White smoke comes out from the appliance. You are preparing greasy ingredients. When you fry greasy ingredients in the fryer, a large amount of oil will leak into the pan. The oil produces white smoke and the pan may heat up more than usual. This does not affect the appliance or the end result.
The pan still contains grease residues from previous use. White smoke is caused by grease heating up in the pan. Make sure you clean the pan properly after each use.
Fresh chips are fried unevenly in the fryer. You did not use the right potato type. Use fresh potatoes and make sure that they stay firm during frying.
You did not rinse the potato chips properly before you fried them. Rinse the potato chips properly to remove starch from the outside of the fries.
Fresh chips are not crispy when they come out of the fryer The crispiness of the chips depends on the amount of oil and water in the fries. Make sure to dry the potato chips properly before adding the oil.
Cut the potato chips smaller for a crispier result.
Add slightly more oil for a crisper result.
