When using electric appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed:
- This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children younger than 8) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have supervision.
- Check if the voltage indicated on the appliance corresponds to the local main voltage before you connect the appliance.
- Do not use the appliance if the plug, the main cord or the appliance itself is damaged. Always make sure that the plug is inserted properly into a wall outlet.
- Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug, after the appliance malfunctions, or has been damaged in any manner. Return appliance to the nearest authorized service facility for examination, repair, or adjustment.
- Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used near children. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance. Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be done by children unless they are older than 8 and supervised.
- Do not let the cord hang over the edge of the table or counter or touch hot surfaces.
- To protect against electric shock, do not immerse cord, plugs, or appliance in water or other liquid. Do not plug in the appliance or operate the control panel with wet hands.
- Never connect this appliance to an external timer switch or separate remote-control system in order to avoid a hazardous situation. To disconnect, turn off the appliance, then remove plug from wall outlet.
- Do not place the appliance on or near combustible materials such as a tablecloth or curtain. The accessible surfaces may become hot during use. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a heated oven.
- Do not place the appliance against a wall or against other appliances. Leave at least 4 inches of free space on the back and sides and 4 inches of free space above the appliance. Do not place anything on top of the appliance.
- Do not use the appliance for any other purpose than described in this manual. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the appliance manufacturer may cause injuries.
- Do not let the appliance operate unattended. Extreme caution must be used when moving an appliance containing hot oil or other hot liquids.
- Do not use outdoors.
- Do not touch the hot surfaces; use handle. During air frying, hot steam is released through the air outlet openings. Keep your hands and face at a safe distance from the steam and from the air outlet openings. Also be careful of hot steam and air when you remove the pan from the appliance.
- After using the appliance, avoid contact with the hot metal inside. Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to cool before cleaning the appliance.
- Immediately unplug the appliance if you see dark smoke coming out of the appliance. Wait for the smoke emission to stop before you remove the pan from the appliance.
- For household use only.
- A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce risk of becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
- Extension cords may be used if care is exercised in their use.
- If an extension cord is used:
a. The marked electrical rating of the extension cord should be at least equal to the electrical rating of the appliance; and
b. The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over
ELECTRICAL POLARIZED PLUG
This unit has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, the plug is intended to be used
by inserting it into the electrical outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit securely into the outlet, reverse the plug and re-insert. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician for assistance. Do not modify the plug in any way.

DISPLAY AND CONTROL PANEL
USING YOUR AIR FRYER
|BEFORE USING FOR THE FIRST TIME
Note: During the first few uses, there might be a “hot plastic” smell. This is perfectly normal in new Air Fryers as the material is heated for the first time. It will go away after the first few uses.
This is an Air Fryer that works using hot air.
- Do not fill the pan with oil, frying fat, or any other liquid.
- Do not put anything on top of the Air Fryer.
Note: Do not place the Air Fryer against a wall or against other appliances. It is important to leave at least 4 inches of free space on the back and sides, and 4 inches of free space above the Air Fryer to allow for proper ventilation.
USING YOUR AIR FRYER
- Place the Air Fryer on a stable, horizontal, heat-resistant, and level surface.
- Place the Crisper Tray into the Pan. Place the ingredients in the Pan – do not overload. Spray with cooking oil for a crispier finish. Slide the Pan into the Air Fryer.
- Plug the Air Fryer into an outlet.
Note: For best results, preheat the Air Fryer for 3 minutes to the desired temperature. When cooking multiple batches, only preheat before first batch.
- Tap the Power Icon to turn on.
- Tap the Menu Icon to select the desired preset. The temperature and time will appear on the screen.
- Tap the Temperature and Time Controls to adjust.
- Tap the Power Icon again to begin air frying.
- Some recipes or ingredients call for shaking the ingredients halfway through the preparation time (see ‘Settings Chart’ on page 15). To shake the ingredients, pull the Pan out of the Air Fryer by the handle and shake it. Slide the Pan back into the Air Fryer to resume cooking. Note: After sliding the Pan out of the Air Fryer, the display will go into sleep mode. When you return the Pan to the Air Fryer, your time and temperature settings will automatically resume. There is
no need to reset your settings or press the Power Icon.
- When your selected cook time has elapsed, the timer bell will ring. Pull the Pan out of the Air Fryer and place it on a heat resistant surface. If you would like to cook longer, simply slide the Pan back into the Air Fryer and set the timer for a few extra minutes.
- Remove food from the Pan using tongs. The food and Pan will be hot.
- Do not turn the Pan upside down, as any excess oil that has collected on the bottom of the Pan will leak onto the food.
- To avoid scratching the nonstick surface, do not use sharp or metal utensils.
- When done cooking, the Air Fryer is instantly ready for preparing another batch. No preheating is necessary.
- To turn off the Air Fryer, press and hold the Power Icon. The Air Fryer will cool down for 20 seconds before shutting off.
|CAUTION: After air frying, the Pan and the ingredients are hot – avoid touching. Depending on the type of the ingredients in the Air Fryer, steam may escape from the Pan.|
AIR FRYING TIPS
- Smaller ingredients usually require a slightly shorter cook time than larger ingredients.
- Shaking smaller ingredients halfway through the cook time optimizes the end result and can help prevent unevenly fried ingredients.
- Add 1 tablespoon of oil to fresh potatoes for a crispy result. Fry your ingredients in the Air Fryer within a few minutes after you add the oil.
- Do not prepare extremely greasy ingredients such as sausages in the Air Fryer.
- Snacks that can be prepared in an oven can also be prepared in the Air Fryer.
- Use pre-made dough to prepare filled snacks quickly and easily. Pre-made dough also requires a shorter preparation time than home-made dough.
- Place a baking tin or oven dish in the Air Fryer Pan if you want to bake a cake or quiche, or if you want to fry fragile or filled ingredients.
|USING THE TIMER
Timer can be set to ring when it’s time to shake ingredients by setting the the timer to half of the total cook time. However, you will have to set the timer again for the remaining cook time after pan is replaced into the Air Fryer. (See ‘Settings Chart’ on page 15.)Option 2:
If the timer is set for the entire cook time, there will be no timer notifying you halfway through to shake ingredients. You can pull out the Pan at anytime to check the food. The power will automatically shut off and will resume after the pan is replaced into the Air Fryer.
The settings below are only suggestions. As ingredients differ in origin, size, shape, as well as brand, we cannot guarantee the best settings for your ingredients.
Air fryers perform similar to ovens. If your dish is not on the list, please refer to oven instructions on item packaging or recipe.
CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
- Clean the Air Fryer after every use.
- Make sure the Air Fryer is completely cooled off before cleaning.
- Do not use metal kitchen utensils or abrasive cleaning material to clean the pan and crisper, as this may damage the non-stick coating.
- Remove the main plug from the wall outlet and let the Air Fryer cool down.
Tip: Remove the Pan from the Air Fryer to help the Air Fryer cool down quicker.
- Wipe the outside of the Air Fryer with a moist cloth.
- Clean the Pan, and Crisper Tray with hot water, some dishwashing soap, and a non-abrasive sponge.
Tip: If residue is stuck to the bottom of the Pan, fill the Pan with hot water and some dishwashing soap and let the Pan soak for approximately 10 minutes.
- Clean the inside of the Air Fryer with hot water and a cleaning brush to remove any food residue.
