Installation and Operation




Plug appliance to mains outlet.




Check Oil Level.





1. Close the drain valve and check that the perforated base plate over the elements is in position.

2. Fill the pan to the depth indicated by the line on the rear wall of pan.




1. Close the drain valve and remove the perforated base plate from the pan.

2. Break the fat into small pieces and fill the pan to cover the elements.

3. Turn the thermostat knob and set the temperature to 70°C. As the fat melts continue to keep the elements covered with pieces of fat until they are submerged in melted fat.

4. Place the perforated base plate over the elements and fill the pan with pieces of fat until the melted fat reaches the line on rear wall of pan.

5. Alternatively, it is recommended that when using solidified fat, approximately 8 litres per pan is melted in a separate vessel and poured into the fryer pan. Fill to the correct level with pieces of fat until melted fat reaches the line on rear wall of pan.

6. Never put a cover on the pan when melting solidified fat (it is dangerous).




Switch on the thermostat and set to required temperature. The amber light will come on. Wait for the amber light to go out, this will indicate that the oil has reached the required temperature and frying can commence.




To switch off

Turn the thermostat knob back to zero (all units) and the filter-off-fry switch or on/off switch (if fitted) to the off position.









Always switch off main power supply after use, during maintenance and cleaning.




Drain used oil into a clean container




Rinse cleaning utensils and cooking well with a vinegar and water solution (Half a cup of vinegar to 2 litres of water)




Clean the interior of the drain pan, frying pan and filter frame, using an acidic substance based detergent to break down the oil residue. Do not use soda or harsh abrasives. Take particular care when cleaning around the elements.




Thoroughly rinse and wipe dry, or allow time to dry.
