Peanut, soya or other high quality vegetable oil is recommended. Ensure that the oil level is maintained between the MIN and MAX markings on the inside of the Fryer.

The red ‘Power’ indicator light will come on. 8.Turn the Temperature Control Dial to the desired temperature. The green ‘Ready’ Light will illuminate. The green light will go out when the Fryer reaches the set temperature and will cycle on and off throughout the cooking process. 9.Prepare the food to be cooked. Cut food into uniform size pieces so they will cook evenly. Pat food dry before cooking. Place in the Frying Basket. NOTE: Do not exceed 2/3 of the Frying Basket capacity. If using frozen food, do not use more than ½ the Frying Basket capacity. 10.When the green ‘Ready’ light goes out, remove the Cover. 11.Lower the Frying Basket into the oil. 12.Replace the Cover. 13.Refer to the Frying Table for temperatures and cooking time. Please note that these cooking times are only a guide and the exact cooking time will depend on the size of pieces being cooked and the temperature of the food. 14.Check food from time to time by looking through the Viewing Window. 15.Once cooking is complete, turn the Temperature Control Dial to Off and unplug from the wall outlet. 16.Remove the Cover, raise the Frying Basket and place the Basket Support Bracket on the edge of the Non-stick Bowl.

As a general rule, food that has been pre-cooked in some way may need a higher temperature and less cooking time than food that is raw. HELPFUL HINTS†Use only good quality oil when frying. Do not deep fry food in butter or margarine. Butter and margarine have a low smoking temperature. †Oil can be reused 8 Œ 12 times if cleaned after each use. (See the Care & Cleaning section) †The Lid is fitted with a Filter to reduce frying odour. †DO NOT heat the Fryer without oil. †When removing the Cover make sure you stand back to avoid steam that is being released from under the Cover. †Once you add food to the Fryer, the water on the food will cause the oil to boil. Watch the oil to ensure it doesn™t overflow. It is threatens to overflow, raise the basket immediately. †When frying several kinds of food, fry the food whose cooking temperature is lower first, then fry the food whose cooking temperature is higher. †When frying for several cycles, the time between the end of the first frying cycle and the beginning of the second frying cycle should be 3 Œ 5 minutes. The green indicator light will turn off when the preset temperature has been reached. 6FOODTEMPERATURE F° / C°APPROXIMATE FRYING TIME (MINUTES) Cheese, breaded 340 / 170 1 – 2 Donuts340 / 170Until golden brown Mushrooms 300 / 1504 – 6Chicken, breaded 340 / 17012 – 14Chicken strips 340 / 1703 – 4Shrimps 260 / 1253 – 4Fish cakes or balls 340 / 1705 Œ 7Fish fillets 300 / 1505 Œ 7 Fish fillet in batter 340 / 1705 Œ 7 Frozen fish 340 / 17010 – 11 Onion rings 375 / 1902 Œ 4 French fries, thin 375 / 1905 – 7French fries, thick 375 / 19010 – 11Booklet_DF1233_ENG_Salton Booklet 6/27/11 4:27 PM Page 6
