General Operating Instructions

Before using the Power AirFryer XLTM for the first time
Remove all packing materials, labels, and stickers. Wash the Outer and Fry Baskets with warm, soapy water. The Outer and Fry Baskets 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.

The Unit will not work unless the frying basket is inserted properly.

  • Plug the power cord into the 120V, dedicated outlet.


  • Put anything on top of the appliance.
  • Cover the Air Intake Vent or Air Outlet Vent on the top and back of the cooking Unit.

A Versatile Appliance
The Power AirFryer 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).

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 the Unit until it “clicks” in place (fig. B). Never use the Outer Basket without the Fry Basket.

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 Air Fryer XLTM will cycle through the cooking process.

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. Move the Sliding Button Guard forward to expose the Basket Release Button. Press the Basket Release Button (top photo) and gently lift the Fry Basket. Shake ingredients. Place the Fry Basket in the Outer Basket and return it to the Unit to finish cooking.

The Outer Basket will be hot… wear an oven mitt during this procedure. Never move the Sliding Button Guard while shaking or you may press the Basket Release Button accidentally.

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

  • When you hear the Timer bell, the Preset 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 Outer Basket on a heat-resistant surface. Move Sliding Button
  • Guard forward. Press the Basket Release Button (top photo) 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. When the cooking cycle is over, you may begin to use again immediately


  • The table on the right will help you select the correct temperature and time for best results. As you become more familiar with the Power AirFryer 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 fried evenly.
  • 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 AirFryer XLTM.
  • Use pre-made dough to prepare filled snacks quickly and easily. 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 stuffed foods.
  • You can use the Power AirFryer XLTM to reheat foods. Simply set the temperature to 300°F for up to 10 minutes.
