A new low fat fryer to make crispy and tasty fried food with little to no oil*

Meet Fry Delight, the low-oil fryer that makes cooking family meals easier and healthier. Its secret is a clever air cooking system called Air Pulse Technology. This uses an upper heating element and a fan to circulate hot air (heated up to 200°C) around your food at very high speeds. Optimising the hot airflow in this way ensures heated air surrounds the entire basket. The result is delicious and healthy fried food that’s delicately crisp on the outside, while staying beautifully tender on the inside – all using little to no oil*. Of course, hardly any oil means hardly any oil smells either – unlike with standard fryers. What’s more, Fry Delight doesn’t just fry food; this versatile appliance can also be used to grill, roast and even bake your favourite foods. It’s quick too, cooking two servings** of chips in just 15 minutes, so it’s ideal for everyday use. Why not treat your family to crispy chicken, roast potatoes or even some moist muffins? Anything is possible! The easy temperature control, plus 30-minute timer with auto-off ensure optimal cooking results, every time. And, when you’ve finished cooking, dishwasher-safe parts make clean-up a breeze. Feed your family’s appetite with Fry Delight.

Instructions & Manual
Frequent questions
The table below will help you to set cooking times according to the food you want to prepare.
The settings are provided as an example and may vary according to the variety of potato used.
For other ingredients, the size, shape and brand may modify the cooking results.
That is why you may have to adapt the cooking time slightly.
The indicated cooking times are based on a preheating time of 3 minutes.
FAQ 1268
Preheating Fry Delight is optional and takes about 3 minutes.
To preheat Fry Delight, set the timer to slightly more than 3 minutes.
When the heating indicator switches off, fill the basket and set the timer to the required cooking time.
You can also place the ingredients in the basket immediately, without preheating; in this case, cooking time will be 3 minutes longer.
Shaking the food in the basket allows warm air to reach contact zones between the food and obtain a more even cooking.
Your food will be crispy and will have an attractive colour for an even more delicious result.
For an even cooking result, we recommend shaking the food in contact with each other or spread out in more than one layer in the basket (chips, nuggets, etc.) half-way through the cooking process.
For fragile food, place the food in the basket in a single layer because shaking it half-way through the cooking process may damage it.

When you shake the basket, check the colour of the ingredients as well.
To shake the ingredients, remove the basket from the appliance by the handle. Remove the basket from the pan. Shake it over the pan and check that the food is well mixed. Put the basket and pan back in the appliance.
Continue cooking.
Yes you can use greaseproof paper or aluminium foill in your Fry Delight appliance.

However, never completely cover the bottom of the basket with these types of paper or any others. Proper air circulation in the basket will ensure optimum cooking of food. When the bottom of the basket is obstructed, the air flow circulating in the basket is reduced. This modifies your appliance's cooking performance.

Recommendations and rules for using greaseproof paper or aluminium foill in Fry delight:

- Never put greaseproof paper or aluminium foill in the appliance without putting food on it. The greaseproof paper/aluminium foill may be sucked into the heating block and burn.
- Also ensure that the greaseproof paper or aluminium foill used only slightly exceeds the surface area of the food you are cooking.
- You may use greaseproof paper in a tin provided that it only exceeds the edges of the tin slightly. The paper should never exceed the edge of the basket.
- You may use aluminium foill or metal trays in the appliance. Use as little aluminium foill as possible and ensure that there is enough space around the food so that air can circulate around it better.

Do not put greaseproof paper or aluminium foill at the bottom of the pan where grease and cooking residues are collected. This would disturb the air flow in the basket and the cooking process would not be optimal.
It is best that the appliance be allowed to cool down before it is stored away.
Make sure your appliance is unplugged.
Leave to cool for one hour after use before storing away.
You may speed up the cooling process by removing the pan and basket from the appliance.
Caution, the pan and basket are very hot after use. Place them on a suitable heat-resistant surface.
Yes, Fry delight is fitted with rubber feet so that it can placed on a worktop.

However, be careful when removing the pan from the appliance after preheating or cooking. It is very hot and does not have support feet, therefore, the pan will be in direct contact with the worktop.

Recommendations and rules for using the hot pan on a worktop:
- If your worktop is made with a heat-sensitive material, such as laminated wood, we recommend placing the pan on a trivet or an insulating oven glove.
- If your worktop is made with a heat-resistant material, such as marble or metal, you can place the pan directly on it.
The pan and basket are dishwasher-safe.

Tip: If dirt adheres to the basket or the bottom of the pan, fill the pan with warm water and dishwashing liquid. Put the basket in the pan and leave the pan and the basket to soak for about 10 minutes. In this way, food residue will loosen and will be easier to remove. The removal of food residue and fat depends on the quality of your detergent. Ensure that you use a detergent that can dissolve oil.

If grease marks remain in the tank or basket and you are unable to remove them with a suitable detergent, use a degreaser product. Follow the instructions on the packaging.

The coating of the pan and the basket is non-stick. Do not use metal kitchen utensils or abrasive cleaning products to clean them because they may damage the non-stick coating.
Unlike a conventional fryer, Fry Delight is not filled with oil. The outside of the appliance is not greasy after use.

- Wipe the outside of the appliance with a damp cloth.
- Clean the inside of the appliance with warm water and a non-abrasive sponge.
- Clean the heating element with a brush to remove food residue.

Small marks may appear in the pan of the appliance following accidental contact with the coating (for example, when inserting the basket and/or when cleaning the appliance with aggressive products).
If this is the case, we inform you that this is not dangerous because all the materials used have been designed not to pose a risk for food.
During cooking, ingredients with a high fat content release their excess grease or oil at the bottom of the pan. If this oil is heated it may produce white smoke. This has no effect on the appliance or the final result.

To stop the white smoke, follow the steps below:

- Switch off the appliance by turning the timer button to zero.
- Put on gloves to protect your hands.
- Take out the pan and remove the basket. Meanwhile, place the basket on a plate. You can cover the basket in order to maintain a maximum of heat inside the basket.
- Remove the excess oil at the bottom of the pan. Use paper towels to do this.
- Place the basket back in the pan and slide the pan into the appliance.
- Continue cooking. Adjust the cooking time according to the remaining preparation time.

To avoid white smoke, follow the instructions below:

- Avoid preparing food with a very high fat content, such as sausages or other fatty meats.
- When you buy snacks, read the label for details about their fat content. Whenever possible, opt for snacks with a low fat content. It will be difficult to obtain a crispy result with snacks with a high fat content.
- Clean the pan immediately after preparing food with a high fat content.
- Put on gloves and remove the excess oil at the bottom of the pan. Use paper towels to do this.

If you leave the oil to cool, it may condense at the bottom of the pan. In this case, it will be difficult to remove.

If the solution above has not helped you to solve the problem, contact the support service.
It is normal and not dangerous for the outside surface of the appliance to become hot. This is a result of the internal heat being diffused to the outside surface of the appliance during the cooking process.
The manipulation of the handle and the temperature and cooking time setting buttons can be done without any danger while the appliance is heating.

The pan and the basket are very hot while the appliance is working. Caution is advised when handling these elements after the appliance has heated in order not to burn yourself.

After a prolonged period of use, some parts of the appliance will be very hot. The following icon allows you to identify these parts:
