Unpacking and First Use
Unpack the appliance and all accessories from the packaging box.
- Select a level, heat-resistant surface to operate the Air Fryer on.
- Check all parts of your appliance before discarding any packaging materials.
- Peel off any adhesive label or stickers from your appliance where necessary.
- We recommend you keep the original box for storage and shipping purposes.
Step 1: Wash the bowl and accessories in warm soapy water or in the dishwasher. Dry thoroughly before use. NEVER submerge the oven lid in water or any other liquid. Only the rack and stainless steel bowl are dishwasher-safe.
Step 2: Position the rack on the bottom of the bowl.
Step 3: Connect the power cord to wall outlet.
Step 4: Fold down the oven lid.
Step 5: Before first use, turn on the empty Air Oven, heating it at maximum temperature for 5 minutes. This will eliminate any odours from within the Air Fryer, and also burn off an excess lubricants that may have been used in the manufacturing process.
Step 6: Allow the unit to cool to room temperature.
Step 7: Wipe the inside of the stainless steel bowl with a damp doth. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads.
Note: A slight burning odour may be emitted during the first few uses. This is normal because the appliance is burning off the excess lubricants and will not cause any harm to you, your food or the appliance.
- Before cooking, it is suggested that you spray a layer of oil on the cooking accessories to prevent sticking.
- Place the stainless steel cooking bowl securely onto the base, ensuring it is placed centrally and sits securely.
- Position the cooking rack in the 5.5 bowl. The type of rack used will be dependent on the type of food being cooked. The high rack is best for grilling and broiling, crisping or cooking well done of meals. The low rack is best for baking, roasting etc.
- Once the food has been placed onto the rack, lower the top onto the stainless steel bowl, ensuring the top sits inside the rim of the bowl.
5. Plug into the wall socket and power inlet and power on. Adjust your cooking time and temperature by the timer and temperature knobs.
NOTE: Do not place food directly onto to stainless steel bowl, as this will result in uneven cooking. If the oven cover is open, the power supply will automatically be cut off.
The roller basket is ideal for cooking nuts, coffee beans, potato wedges and French fries etc.
- Pass the rotisserie pin through the basket.
- Tighten the fastening screw to secure the basket.
- Place food into the basket and secure the cover.
- Insert the pointed end of the rotisserie pin through the hole in the pot and into the rotating shaft.
- Place the other end onto the L-ledge on the bowl.
The rotisserie rack is ideal for roasting chicken, turkey, leg of lamb and pork rolls etc.
- Tie up chicken wings and legs before roasting.
- On one end of the rotisserie pin, lightly secure the fastening fork.
- Insert the rotisserie pin through the chicken with the fork holding the chicken in place.
- Secure the other end with another fork.
- Insert the pointed end of the rotisserie pin through the SS pot hole and into rotating shaft.
- Place the other end onto the L-ledge on bowl.
The dual rack is a reversible high and low rack and it acts as a cooking stand to support the frying pan and basket. You can also place other bakeware or food on the dual rack.
Place directly in bowl according to food/bakeware height.
Fix the chicken on the rotisserie: the food is cooked more evenly both inside and outside, without burning the surface.
It is not necessary to use oil for roasting, but you may do so for foods that tend to become dry in an oven.
Roasting time may vary depending on the type of meat or other food, type of cut, amount of fat, thickness and/or weight of the item, however, the cooking time of the air oven is generally 50% faster than a traditional oven.
Use any ovenproof baking dish, preferably non-stick that will fit comfortably inside the air oven.
Place on the low rack (Dual rack in lower position).
Take special care in baking, as desserts are especially delicate and easy to overcook. Lower the temperature slightly and turn the baking dish if too much browning occurs in one area.
You can steam vegetables at the same time you cook your main dish by placing the vegetables in an aluminium foil pouch: add a few drops of water and seal the pouch.
You can also add a cup of water in the bottom pot, with savoury herbs and spices to steam fish or vegetables.
You can get the effect of deep-fried chips without oil, by spraying potato strips with some polyunsaturated cooking oil.
The excess oil will drip away while cooking for healthier chips.
To make delicious fried chicken, season the chicken pieces firstly with batter and cooking oil. The excess oil will drip away while cooking for healthier fried chicken.
You can use the air oven to defrost frozen food more evenly than a microwave oven. Simply set the temperature to defrost and check the food every 5-10 minutes.
Please note, the time and temperatures listed in the tables below are just for reference and may need to be adjusted for various food sizes or quantity, food manufacturer instructions and/or individual taste.
