Instructions for a T-Fal Deep Fryer


A T-Fal deep fat fryer lets you prepare all your favorite fried foods in your own home including fried chicken, French fries and even deep-fried candy bars and snack cakes. The T-Fal deep fat fryer uses a very hot oil to cook foods to the ideal consistency: Crunchy outside and moist inside. Always use caution and follow all manufacturers' instructions strictly, when operating a deep fat fryer since injury can occur if you have contact with the hot oil.

  • Fill the bowl of the T-Fal fryer with oil or melted vegetable shortening. Oil or shortening should be at a level in between the "MIN" and "MAX" marks on the bowl.

  • Turn the lever marked "Oil" to the "Fry" position.

  • Plug the T-Fal deep fat fryer into a wall outlet. Wait for the power indicator light to come on.

  • Press the temperature touchpad underneath the "00" that appears on the display screen. The temperature will automatically begin at 320 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Adjust the temperature if needed. Use the T-Fal manual's recommended temperature guidelines for the food you are cooking. Temperatures may range from 320 to 374 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on the quantity and type of food.

  • Put the food in the basket. Follow the "MAX" mark on the basket to ensure you do not overfill the basket.

  • Wait for the temperature light to appear under "Ready." On some models of T-Fal deep fat fryer, there is no "Ready" light; in this case, the temperature indicator light will go out, indicating that preheating is completed and the fryer is ready for use.

  • Place the basket in the fryer. Some T-Fal deep fryer models have a sliding handle that audibly clicks the basket into place, while others have a basket that you will simply place inside, then lower the lid.

  • Set the timer button. Use the cooking time guidelines in the T-Fal manual for your deep fryer model.

  • Wait for the timer to sound, indicating that the food is ready. Press the timer button once to stop the timer alert.

  • Remove or raise the lid on the T-Fal deep fat fryer.

  • Raise the cooking basket to the higher latch position on the inside of the T-Fal deep fat fryer. This will allow extra oil to drain. Allow the food to cool and drain oil in that position for three minutes.

  • Remove the basket from the T-Fal deep fat fryer and unplug the fryer. Empty the food onto dish or platter and serve.
