****** Page 9 ****** HOW TO USE (cont.) 14. Empty the contents of the Cooking Pan (7) into a bowl or onto a plate using non-metallic utensils. NOTE: Wooden, heat-proof silicone or nylon utensils are recommended for use with this air fryer. Metal utensils may scratch the nonstick coating. 15. Turn off the Power Switch (11) and unplug the Power Cord (12) from wall outlet. HELPFUL TIPS Suggested cooking times and temperatures will vary depending on the quantity of ingredients used. The cook- ing pan has a nonstick coating, so it is not necessary to add additional oil to every dish. Keep in mind that it is best practice to season foods after they have been cooked to avoid scorching your dish. Use the table on the next page to help select the best settings for the ingredients you’re preparing. Please not that this is only a guide; you will need to ensure your food is properly cooked before serving. Save time and energy by toasting bagels, croissants, bread slices, French rolls and more. Set the temperature to 2120F and toast until desired darkness is achieved.

NOTE: – For uncovered dishes, the cooking temperature is 250F to 500F lower for baking in your Air Fryer. Preheating the cooker is not needed. HINTS: When referencing cooking times for a conventional oven, reduce cook time by about 25% as a general rule of thumb.

****** Page 11 ****** TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE PROBLEM The airfryer does not work. Food is not completely cooked/fried. Food is unevenly cooked. Fried snacks are not crispy. I cannot close the Glass Lid (5). White smoke is emitting out of the appliance during use. Home-made French fries are coming out unevenly cooked. Home-made French fries are not crispy after air frying. Questions? We’re here to help! POSSIBLE CAUSE The appliance is not plugged in. The appliance is defective. There is too much food in the Cooking Pan (7). The cooking temperature is set too low. The cooking time is too short. Food is raw and frozen solid. Certain foods need to be stirred mid-way through the cooking process. You used a type of snack meant to be prepared in a traditional deep fryer. The Cooking Pan (7) is too full. You are preparing food with a high oil content. The pan has built-up oil residue from previous uses. Your potatoes are not fresh or are frozen. Potato strips were not well rinsed prior to frying. Crispy results are directly linked to the amount of oil used and water content of the fresh potato strips. SOLUTION Plug the power cord (12) into an electrical outlet. You did not flip the POWER Switch (11) on the back of the unit. Make sure the Glass Lid (5) is completely closed in order to activate the Safety Switch (9) and begin operation. Contact customer service at Use smaller batches of food in the Cooking Pan (7) to cook more evenly. Increase the temperature setting. Check “Cooking Time Chart” found in this manual. Increase the time setting. Check “Cooking Time Chart” found in this manual. Raw frozen foods should be thawed before cooking in the air fryer. Exceptions to this are pre-cooked frozen foods. Foods that overlap inside the Cooking Pan (7) need to be stirred mid-way through cooking. Use oven snacks or lightly brush some oil onto the snacks for a crispier result. Do not overfill the Cooking Pan (7). When cooking with oily foods, oil will drain into the Cooking Pan (7). When the air fryer heats up, the pan heats up the oil and produces white smoke. This does not adversely affect the air fryer or your cooking process. White smoke is caused by oil leftover in the Cooking Pan (7). Make sure to thoroughly clean the Cooking Pan (7) after every use. Make sure to use fresh and firm potatoes, not frozen potatoes, for home-made French fries. Thoroughly rinse sliced potato to remove all starch prior to frying. Potato strips need to be thoroughly dried before adding oil. Slice potato strips thinner if you want them crispier. Use a bit more oil on the potato strips prior to frying if you want crispier results. 9 Visit: for support on this product.
