When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including:

  • READ AND FOLLOW all instructions carefully.
  • NEVER IMMERSE the housing, which contains electrical components and heating elements, in water. Do not rinse under the tap.
  • TO AVOID ELECTRICAL SHOCK, do not put liquid of any kind into the main Unit housing containing the electrical components.
  • THIS APPLIANCE HAS A POLARIZED PLUG (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk
    of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.
  • MAKE SURE the appliance is plugged into a wall socket. Always make sure that the plug is inserted into the wall socket properly.
  • TO PREVENT FOOD CONTACT with the heating elements, do not overfill the Fry Basket.
  • DO NOT cover the air inlet and outlet openings while the Power AirFryer XLTM is operating. Doing so will prevent even cooking and may damage the Unit or cause it to overheat.
  • NEVER POUR oil into the Outer Basket. Fire and personal injury could result.
  • WHILE COOKING, the internal temperature of the Unit reaches several hundred degrees F. To avoid personal injury, never place hands inside the Unit unless it is thoroughly cooled down.
  • THIS APPLIANCE IS NOT INTENDED FOR use by persons with reduced physical, sensory, or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge unless they are under the supervision of a responsible person or have been given proper instruction in using the appliance. This appliance is not intended for use by children.
  • DO NOT use this Unit if the plug, the power cord, or the appliance is damaged.
  • IF THE POWER CORD IS DAMAGED, you must have it replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent, or a similarly qualified person to avoid hazards.
  • KEEP THE APPLIANCE and its power cord out of the reach of children when it is in operation or in the “cooling down” process.
  • KEEP THE POWER CORD away from hot surfaces. Do not plug in the power cord or operate the Unit controls with wet hands.
  • NEVER CONNECT THIS APPLIANCE to an external timer switch or separate remote-control system.
  • NEVER USE THIS APPLIANCE with an extension cord of any kind.
  • DO NOT OPERATE THE APPLIANCE on or near combustible materials such as tablecloths and curtains.
  • WHEN COOKING, do not place the appliance against a wall or other appliances. Leave at least 5” free space on the back and sides and above the appliance. Do not place anything on top of the appliance.
  • DO NOT USE the Power AirFryer XLTM for any purpose other than described in this manual.
  • NEVER operate the appliance unattended.
  • WHEN IN OPERATION, hot steam is released through the air outlet openings. Keep your hands and face at a safe distance from the air outlet openings. Also, avoid the hot steam and air while removing the Outer Basket and Fry Basket from the appliance.
  • THE UNIT’S OUTER SURFACES may become hot during use. The Outer Basket and Fry Basket will be hot… wear oven mitts when handling hot components or touching hot surfaces.
  • SHOULD THE UNIT EMIT BLACK SMOKE, unplug immediately and wait for the smoking to stop before removing the Outer and Fry Baskets.



  • Always operate the appliance on a horizontal surface that is level, stable, and non-combustible.
  • This appliance is intended for normal household use only. It is not intended for use in commercial or retail environments.
  • If the Power AirFryer XLTM is used improperly or for professional or semi-professional purposes or if it is not used according to the instructions in the user manual, the warranty becomes invalid and we will not be held liable for damages.
  • Always unplug the appliance after use.
  • Let the appliance cool down for approximately 30 minutes before handling, cleaning, or storing it.
  • Make sure the ingredients prepared in this Unit come out cooked to a golden-yellow color rather than dark or brown. Remove burnt remnants.
  • The Power AirFryer XLTM is equipped with an internal micro switch that automatically shuts down the fan and heating element when the Outer Basket is removed.

The appliance has a built-in timer and will automatically shut down when the countdown reaches zero. You can manually switch the appliance off by pressing the timer buttons until it shows zero or by pressing the cancel button one time. In either case, the appliance will automatically shut down within 20 seconds.

If the electrical circuit is overloaded with other appliances, your new Unit may not operate properly. It should be operated on a dedicated electrical circuit.

Should the inner temperature control system fail, the overheating protection system will be activated and the Unit will not function. Should this happen, unplug the power cord, and allow time for the Unit to cool completely before restarting or storing.

This appliance complies with all standards regarding electromagnetic fields (EMF). If handled properly and according to the instructions in this user manual, the appliance is safe to use based on scientific evidence available today.

Cooking with the Power AirFryer XLTM Without Presets

Once you are familiar with the Power AirFryer XLTM you may want to experiment with your recipes. You do not need to select a preset function. Simply choose the time and temperature that suits your taste.

Preheating the Power AirFryer XLTM

You may preheat the Unit for more efficient cooking simply by selecting a cook time of 2 or 3 minutes and cooking at the default or higher temperature. For preheating, you will need to insert the empty Fry Basket and Outer Basket into the Unit housing.

WARNING: Never fill the Outer Basket with cooking oil or any other liquid! Fire hazards or personal injury could result.

General Operating InstructionsPower AirFryer XL Owner's Manual-6

Before using the Power AirWave Fryer XLTM for the first time…

Remove all packing materials, labels, and stickers, then wash the Outer and Fry Basket with warm soapy water. The Outer and Fry Basket are also dishwasher safe. Wipe the inside and outside of the cooking Unit with a clean moist cloth. Never wash or submerge the cooking Unit in water. Never fill the Outer Basket with oil… this Unit cooks with hot air only.

Preparing for use

  • Place the appliance on a stable, level, horizontal, and heat-resistant surface.
  • Place the Fry Basket in the Outer Basket properly.
  • Slide the Fry Basket into the cooking Unit until it “clicks” into place.
    Note: The Unit will not work unless the frying basket is inserted properly.
  • Plug the power cord into the 110V, dedicated outlet.


  • Put anything on top of the appliance.
  • Cover the air vents on the top and back of the cooking Unit.

A Versatile Appliance

The Power AirWave Fryer XLTM is designed to cook a wide variety of your favorite foods. The charts and tables provided within this manual and the Recipe Guide will help you get great results. Please refer to this information for proper time/temperature settings and proper food quantities.

Time to Fry “Hot Air” Style…

When removing the Outer Basket you may feel slight resistance. Place your hand on top of the Unit and pull gently on the Outer Basket.


Wear an oven mitt on the hand you use to hold the Unit in place.
Place the ingredients in the Fry Basket (fig. A).

Power AirFryer XL Owner's Manual-7

Note: Never fill the Fry Basket above the recommended amount as this could affect the quality of the result or interfere with the electric heating coils.

Slide the Fry Basket back into them until it “clicks” in place, (fig. B). Never use the Outer Basket without the Fry Basket.

Caution: During the cooking process, the Outer Basket will become very hot. When you remove it to check on the progress, make sure you have a heat-resistant surface nearby to set it down on.

  1. When the Fry Basket and food are securely in place, press the Power Button once (page 5 fig.1).
  2. Select a Preset function using the “M” Button (page 5 fig. 6) or manually set the Temperature and then the Time (page 5 figs. 2,3,4,5).
  3. Press The Power Button (page 5 fig. 1) once and the Power AirWave Fryer XLTM will cycle through the cooking process.

Note: You may remove the Fry Basket at any time during the process to check the progress. If you wish to preheat the Unit, see the instructions on page 6.

Because the rapid hot air technology instantly reheats the air inside the appliance, pulling the Outer Basket briefly out of the appliance during hot air frying barely disturbs the process. Consult the Charts in this manual or the Recipe Guide to determine the correct settings.

Shaking…Power AirFryer XL Owner's Manual-8

To ensure even cooking, some foods require “shaking” during the cooking process. To do this, simply remove the Outer Basket and Fry Basket from the Unit… gently shake the contents as needed, and place them back in the Unit to continue cooking. For heavier foods, you might want to separate the Fry Basket from the Outer Basket before shaking it.

To do this, place the assembled Outer Basket and Fry Basket on a heat-resistant surface. Press the Release Button (fig.2) and gently lift the Fry Basket. Shake the ingredients, place the Fry Basket in the Outer Basket, and return it to the Unit to finish cooking.

Caution: The Outer Basket will be hot… wear an oven mitt during this procedure.

Tip: Set the Timer to 1/2 the time needed for the recipe and the Timer bell will alert you when it’s time to “shake”.

When you hear the timer bell, the pre-set preparation time has elapsed. Pull the Outer Basket out of the appliance and place it on a heat-resistant surface.

To remove ingredients (i.e., fries), place the Fry Basket on a heat surface, press the Release Button (fig.2), and lift the Fry Basket out of the Outer Basket. Turn the Fry Basket over and let the ingredients fall on a plate. Use nonabrasive utensils to remove larger foods.

Do not turn the Fry Basket upside down with the Outer Basket still attached… excess oil that has collected on the bottom of the Outer Basket will leak onto the food. When a quantity of food is cooked, the Unit is instantly ready for preparing another batch.


  • The table on the right will help you select the correct temperature and time for the best results. As you become more familiar with the Power AirWave Fryer XLTM cooking process, you may adjust these settings to suit your tastes.
  • Because the rapid hot air technology instantly reheats the air inside the appliance, pulling the Fry Basket briefly out of the appliance during hot air frying barely disturbs the process.


  • Foods that are smaller in size usually require a slightly shorter cooking time than larger ones.
  • Large quantities of food only require a slightly longer cooking time than smaller quantities.
  • “Shaking” smaller-sized foods halfway through the cooking process assures that all the pieces are evenly fried.
  • Adding a bit of vegetable oil to fresh potatoes is suggested for a crispier result. When adding a little oil, do so just before cooking.
  • Snacks normally cooked in an oven can also be cooked in the Power AirWave Fryer XLTM.
  • Use the pre-made dough to prepare filled snacks quickly and easily. The pre-made dough also requires a shorter cooking time than homemade dough.
  • Place a baking tin or oven dish in the Fry Basket when baking a cake or quiche. A tin or dish is also suggested when cooking fragile or filled foods.
  • You can use the Power AirWave Fryer XLTM to reheat foods. Simply set the temperature to 300°F for up to 10 minutes.

Power AirFryer XL Owner's Manual-9

The table above will help you choose the basic settings for the ingredients selected.
*Add 3 minutes to the cooking time when starting with a cold appliance.

Note: Keep in mind that these settings are indications. As ingredients differ in origin, size, shape, and brand, we cannot guarantee the best settings for your ingredients.
