COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

Cooking with the Air Fryer Oven

  2.  Put the Drip Tray, racks into the unit and shut the oven door. Plug the power cord into a 120V dedicated outlet.
  3.  Press the Power Button once

Tips

  •  Foods that are smaller in size usually require a slightly shorter cooking time than larger ones.
  •  Large quantities of food only require a slightly longer cooking time than smaller quantities.
  • Flipping or turning smaller-sized foods halfway through the cooking process ensures that all the pieces are evenly fried.
  • Misting a bit of vegetable oil on fresh potatoes is suggested for a crispier result. We add a little oil, do so just before cooking.
  •  Snacks normally cooked in an oven can also be cooked in the Air Fryer Oven.
  • Use the premade dough to prepare filled snacks quickly and easily. Premade dough also requires a shorter cooking time than homemade dough.
  •  Place a baking tin or oven dish in the Air Fryer Oven when baking a cake or quiche. A tin or dish is also suggested when cooking fragile or filled foods.
