  • Attach the Fry Basket to the Drawer. Ensure that it is securely fitted and that the protective button cover is closed covering the Push-Release Button located in the basket Handle.

  • The appliance will automatically confirm your selections after a short period and begin the cooking process.
  • We recommend checking on foods halfway through the cooking process to monitor cooking and browning progress or turn foods over. When air frying chips, you can use this time to shake ingredients for even results. To check on foods, simply slide the Drawer by using the Basket Handle. Ensure that the protective button cover is closed so that the Push-Release Button is not pressed, accidentally releasing the Fry Basket from the Drawer. Shake ingredients in the drawer combination vigorously if needed and simply slide it back in when done. The cooking program will pause and then automatically resume.
  • Adjust the cooking temperature or time it is needed.

Remove the food from the Fry Basket and plate as desired.
  • Once all food is removed from the basket, proceed with cleaning the Air Fryer or instantly move on to your next cooking creation.


  • Do not cook directly in the Drawer. Always add food into the Fry Basket for cooking. Always use the appliance with the Fry Basket and Drawer combined.
  • We recommend pre-heating your Air Fryer before cooking foods to obtain the best results. If you choose not to pre-heat your Air Fryer, add 3 – 5 minutes to the cooking time.
  • When cooking foods from frozen ensure to extend the amount of cooking time accordingly to allow for the foods to defrost first.
  • Use the Basket Handle to remove or add the Fry Basket and Drawer combination from and into the appliance.
  • Never turn the Drawer upside down with the Fry Basket attached. Be careful not to tilt the Drawer when removing or adding it back into the appliance. Hot oils and fats may spill as they have collected in the Drawer during the cooking process.
  • Always unlock and remove the Fry Basket from the Drawer before emptyingtoo to avoid oil from contaminating air-fried foods.
  • Always ensure that the protective button cover is closed before removing the Fry Basket and Drawer combination from the Air Fryer and when the combination is elevated. Doing so will ensure that the Push-Release Button is not pressed accidentally.
  • Should it be pressed accidentally, it will release the Fry Basket from the Drawer and could cause injury and damage. Always remove the combination from the Air Fryer and immediately rest the combination on a flat, heat-resistant surface before detaching the Fry Basket from the Drawer.


  • Brush food slightly with some oil for crispier results.
  • Par-boil potatoes before air frying when you prepare home-made chips that you have sliced and skinned yourself.
  • If you are cooking different food types consecutively, clean the Fry Basket and Drawer between each batch. This will assist in ensuring that the taste of the food is not affected by what was cooked in the batch before.
  • Instead of reheating food in the microwave, do it in the Air Fryer for crispier, tastier leftovers.
  • Mix your seasonings with oil before adding them to your foods to prevent them from blowing around in the Air Fryer.
  • When crumbing, press the crumb mixture onto the food using your hands. This will prevent the crumbs from blowing off the food during the cooking cycle.

Pour used oil and fats into an old jam jar and dispose of it once you have collected a fair amount. This is environmentally friendly and by avoiding pouring the oils down the drain, it will ensure that your drain pipes do not become clogged over time.

As a frying and cooking appliance, oils and fats may build up inside the cavity. You may notice excessive smoke emitting from the air outlet at the back of the appliance over time. This is usually an indicator that the appliance needs maintenance cleaning by the long-term maintenance guide. We recommend maintenance cleaning quarterly or as needed. Follow the above daily care and cleaning steps

  • Turn the appliance upside down so that it is resting on its upper appliance body. This will enable you to see the inner appliance cavity and cooking element and to determine where oil and fat build-up is taking place.
  • Use a soft, dry bristle brush to lightly brush stubborn build-up of the element.
  • Use a soft, disposable cleaning cloth or sponge, slightly dampened with a small amount of detergent to finish off cleaning the element and wipe clean all accessible areas of the cavity.
  • Thoroughly dry the element and cavity, ensuring that no detergent or moisture remains before using or storing the appliance.
