Important

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 is not intended for use by children.
  • DO NOT use this Unit if the plug, the power cord, or the appliance itself is damaged in any way.
  • IF THE POWER CORD IS DAMAGED, you must have it replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent, or a similarly qualified person to avoid hazard.
  • 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.

  • 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.

CAUTION

  • Always operate the appliance on a horizontal surface that is level, stable, and noncombustible.

General Operating Instructions

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.

NEVER

  • 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.

CAUTION
WHEN REMOVING THE OUTER BASKET, BE CAREFUL NOT TO PRESS THE BASKET HANDLE BUTTON. THE OUTER BASKET WILL SEPARATE FROM THE FRY BASKET.

WARNING
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 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
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 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 resistant-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.

Settings

  • 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 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.

Tips

  • 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 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 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.
