SPECIFICATIONS

Secura TXG-DS15 Electric Hot Air Fryer 2

BEFORE FIRST USE

  1. Remove all packaging material.
  2. Remove any stickers or labels from the appliance.
  3. Thoroughly clean the basket and pan with hot soapy water and a non-abrasive sponge.
    Note:
    These parts are also dishwasher safe.
  4. Wipe the inside and outside of the appliance with a moist cloth.

PREPARING FOR USE

  1. Place the appliance on a stable, horizontal, and level surface. Do not place the appliance on non-heat-resistant surfaces.
  2. Place the basket into the pan. It will “lock” into place.
  3. Put the pan into the machine.
    Note:
    the pan MUST be put into the appliance properly, otherwise the appliance will not work!
  4. Plug the appliance into a grounded power outlet. This is an air fryer that works on hot air. Do not fill the pan with oil or any other liquid.
  • Do not put anything on top of the appliance.
  • Do not block the air-inlets on either side of the appliance, this disrupts the airflow and affects the hot air frying results.

USING THE APPLIANCE

The air fryer can prepare a large range of ingredients. Please refer to the table in the section “Settings” for recommended cooking temperatures, times, and additional information about air frying.

Hot air frying

  1. Connect the power cord to a grounded power outlet.
  2. Carefully pull the pan out of the air fryer.
  3. Put the ingredients in the basket and make sure the basket is “locked” in place in the pan.
    Note:
    Never overfill the basket or exceed the recommended amount (see section ‘Settings’ in this chapter), as this could negatively affect the quality of the results.
  4. Slide the pan back into the air fryer (you will feel a “catch” when it has been inserted
    correctly). Never use the pan without the basket in it. If the pan isn’t inserted into the air fryer properly, the appliance won’t work!
    Caution:
    Do not touch the pan during and immediately after use, as it gets very hot. Only hold the pan by the handle.
  5. Turn the temperature control knob to the required temperature. See the table in the section “Settings” in this chapter to determine the recommended temperature.
  6. Determine the required preparation time for the ingredient (see the table in the section “Settings” in this chapter).
  7. The timer control knob acts as the “ON/OFF” switch for the Air Fryer. Turn the timer knob to the required preparation time:

Tip:
Add 3 minutes to the preparation time when the appliance is cold or you can preheat the Air Fryer without any ingredients inside. To preheat, turn the temperature knob to the temperature you will be frying at and then turn the timer knob to more than 3 minutes and wait until the heating-up light goes out (after approx.

3 minutes). Then remove the empty pan & basket, fill the basket with your choice of ingredients, replace the filled pan & basket assembly in the fryer, and turn the timer knob to the required preparation time. The pan & basket will be hot at this time, so be careful when handling it and filling it with ingredients.

Caution:
Do not press the button on the handle during shaking as this will cause the basket to separate from the pan.

Tip:
To reduce the weight, you can remove the basket from the pan and shake the basket only. To do so, pull the pan out of the appliance, place it on a heat-resistant surface, and press the button on the handle to release the basket.
Tip:
If you set the timer to half the preparation time, the timer bell will go off when you have to shake the ingredients. However, this means that you have to set the timer again to the remaining preparation time after shaking.
Tip:
If you set the timer to full preparation time, there will be no timer bell halfway through cooking. You will need to monitor the cooking process to determine the halfway point for shaking the pan. You can pull the pan out at any time to check the ingredient’s cooking condition, the power will shut down automatically and resume after you slide the pan back into the appliance (the timer always continues to count down in this situation).

Settings
The table below provides recommendations for the basic settings for the ingredients you want to prepare.

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

Because the rapid hot air technology instantly reheats the air inside the appliance, pulling the pan briefly out of the appliance during hot air frying barely disturbs the process.

Tips:

  • Shaking smaller ingredients halfway through the cooking process optimizes the result and can help prevent unevenly fried ingredients.
  • Add some oil to fresh potatoes for a crispy result. Fry your ingredients in the air fryer within a few minutes after you add the oil.
  • Do not prepare extremely greasy ingredients such as sausages in the air fryer.
  • Snacks that can be prepared in an oven can also be prepared in the air fryer.
  • The optimal amount for preparing crispy fries is 18 oz/500 grams.
  • Use pre-made dough to prepare filled snacks quickly and easily. Pre-made dough also requires a shorter cooking time than home-made dough.
  • Place a baking tin or oven dish in the air fryer basket if you want to bake a cake or quiche or if you want to fry fragile ingredients or filled ingredients.
  • You can also use the air fryer to reheat ingredients. To reheat ingredients, set the temperature to 148°C/300°F for up to 10 minutes.

Secura TXG-DS15 Electric Hot Air Fryer 3

Note:
Add 3 minutes to the cooking time when you start frying while the air fryer is still cold or preheat the air fryer with no ingredients in the basket.

    Remove the pan to let the air fryer cool down more quickly.
  2. Wipe the outside of the appliance with a moist cloth.
