IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

Follow basic safety precautions when using your air fryer.
Read all instructions.

Key Safety Points 

  • Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handle.
  • Use caution when turning the basket over after cooking, as the hot crisper plate may fan out and create a safety hazard.
  • Do not block any ventilation openings. Hot steam is released through openings. Keep your hands and face clear of openings.

General Safety 

  • Do not immerse the air fryer housing, cord, or plug in water or liquid.
  • Closely supervise children near your air fryer.
  • Unplug when not in use, and before cleaning. Allow to cool before putting on or taking off parts.
  • Do not use your air fryer if it is damaged, not working, or if the cord or plug is damaged. Contact Customer Support (see page 17).
  • Do not use third-party replacement parts or accessories, as this may cause injuries.
  • Do not use outdoors.
  • Do not place the air fryer or any of its parts on a stove, near gas or electric burners, or in a heated oven.
  • Be extremely cautious when moving your air fryer (or removing the basket) if it contains hot oil or other hot liquids.
  • Do not clean with metal scouring pads. Metal fragments can break off the pad and touch electrical parts, creating a risk of electric shock.
  • Do not place anything on top of your air fryer. Do not store anything inside your air fryer.
  • Do not strike or hit the top of the air fryer with hard objects, as this may cause the tempered glass to crack. Tempered glass is stronger and fractures more safely than ordinary glass, but it may shatter unexpectedly after being cracked. If you see a crack, contact Customer Support
    (see page 17).
  • This air fryer can be used by children 8 years and older as well as persons with reduced physical, sensory,
    or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge if they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the air purifier in a safe way and understand the hazards involved.
  • Children should not play with the air fryer.
  • Cleaning and user maintenance should not be made by children without supervision.
  • This air fryer is not intended to be operated by means of an external timer or separate remote-control system.
  • Only use your air fryer as directed in this manual.
  • Not for commercial use. Household use only.

While Air Frying 

  • An air fryer works with hot air only. Never fill the baskets with oil or fat.
  • Never use your air fryer without the basket in place.
  • Do not place oversized foods or metal utensils into your air fryer.
  • Do not overfill the air fryer basket. Heaping amounts of food may touch the heating coils and cause a fire hazard.
  • Do not touch accessories during or immediately after air frying.
  • Do not place paper, cardboard, non -heat-resistant plastic, or similar materials, into your air fryer. You may use parchment paper or foil.
  • Never put baking or parchment paper into the air fryer without food on top. Air circulation can cause paper to lift and touch heating coils.
  • Always use heat-safe containers. Be extremely cautious if using containers that aren’t metal or glass.
  • Keep your air fryer away from flammable materials (curtains, tablecloths, etc). Use on a flat, stable, heat-resistant surface away from heat sources or liquids.
  • Immediately turn off and unplug your air fryer if you see dark smoke coming out. White smoke is normal, caused by heating fat or food splashing, but dark smoke means that food is burning or there is a circuit problem. Wait for smoke to clear before pulling the basket out. If the cause was not burnt food, contact Customer Support (page 17).
  • Do not leave your air fryer unattended while in use.

Plug & Cord 

  • Do not let the power cord (or any extension cord) hang over the edge of a table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
  • Remove and discard the protective cover fitted over the power plug of the air fryer to prevent choking hazards.
  • Never use an outlet below the counter when plugging in your air fryer.
  • Keep the air fryer and its cord out of reach of children less than 8 years old.

Shaking Food

How to Shake

  • During cooking, press and hold the basket release button to take the basket out of the air fryer, and shake, mix, or flip the food.
    • To shake food:
      1. Hold the basket just above a heat-resistant surface for safety purposes.
      2. Shake the basket.
        Note: Do not use this method if there is a risk of hot liquids splashing.
    • If the basket is too heavy to shake and there are hot liquids present:
      1. Place the basket on a heat-resistant holder or surface.
      2. Use tongs to mix or flip the food.
  • When you take the basket out, the air fryer will pause cooking automatically. As a safety feature, the display will tum off until the basket is replaced.
  • When you replace the basket, cooking will automatically resume.
  • Avoid shaking longer than 30 seconds, as the air fryer may start to cool down.

What to Shake 

  • Small foods that are stacked will usually need shaking, such as fries or nuggets.
  • Without shaking, foods may not be crispy or evenly cooked.
  • You can flip other foods, such as steak, to ensure even browning.

When to Shake 

  • Shake or flip food once halfway through cooking, or more if desired.
  • The Shake Reminder is designed to remind you to check on your food. Tap SHAKE to turn on the Shake Reminder. Certain cooking functions use the Shake Reminder automatically (see Cooking Functions, page 12).

Shake Reminder 

  • The Shake Reminder will alert you with 5 beeps, and (Shake) will blink on the display.
  • If you do not remove the basket, the Shake Reminder will beep again after 1 minute and the display will show a solid (Shake).
  • The Shake Reminder will go away once you take out the basket.

Cooking Guide

Overfilling

  • If the basket is overfilled, food will cook unevenly.

Using Oil 

  • Adding a small amount of oil to your food will make it crispier. Use no more than 30 mL / 2 US tbsp of oil.
  • Oil sprays are excellent for applying small amounts of oil evenly to all food items.

Food Tips 

  • You can air fry any frozen foods or goods that can be baked in an oven.
  • To make cakes, hand pies, or any food with filling or batter, place food in a heat-safe container before placing in the basket.
  • Air frying high-fat foods will cause fat to drip to the bottom of the baskets. To avoid excess smoke while cooking, pour out fat drippings after cooking.
  • Liquid-marinated foods create splatter and excess smoke. Pat these foods dry before air frying.

French Fries 

  • Add 8-15 mL / ½-1 US tbsp oil for crispiness.
  • When making fries from raw potatoes, soak uncooked fries in water for 15 minutes to remove starch prior to frying. Pat dry with a towel before adding oil.
  • Cut uncooked fries smaller for crispier results. Try cutting fries into 0.6- by 7.6-cm /¼- by 3-inch strips.
