Frequent questions
You can vary your pleasures and use different oils!
Standard oils: olive, rapeseed*, grape seed, corn, peanut, sunflower, soybean*
Flavoured oils: aromatic herbs, chilli, garlic, lemon...
Special oils: hazelnut*, sesame*, safflower*, almond*, avocado*, argan*...
We advise against using walnut oil, which results in a rancid taste after cooking.
(* cooking oil according to manufacturer).
With a dosing spoon of oil of your choice, you'll get light and crispy fries. Depending on your taste, you can add 1 extra spoon of oil for even more delicacy!
Wash the cut chips twice in a bowl of water before cooking to remove any excess starch. It is then essential to dry them thoroughly before cooking in a clean, absorbent tea towel and finally patted dry with kitchen paper. If you are cooking frozen chips you do not need to add any oil as these already contain oil and could make the chips soggy. If using the 2 in1 feature (bowl + tray) after the food is cooked on the tray, cook the chips for a further 2-5 minutes after you've removed the tray to make them crispier.
None as the chips already contain oil.
If you are cooking frozen chips you do not need to add any oil as they already contain oil.
There are many possible reasons:
• You may not have used the right variety of potatoes.
• The potatoes were insufficiently washed and dried prior to cooking and still contain too much starch.
• The chips are too thick. Cut the chips thinner.
• You have not used enough oil. Increase the amount of oil.
• The filter may be obstructed. Clean the filter.
The size of the chip affects how crunchy or soft it is.
The thinner the chips, the more crunchy they will be and conversely, thicker chips will be softer inside.
Depending on your taste preferences, you may vary the cooking time and the cut of your chips: thin: 8 x 8 mm/Standard: 10 x 10 mm/Thick: 13 x 13 mm.
For best results, wash the whole potatoes and then sliced potatoes in plenty of water until it runs clear.
This allows you to remove as much starch as possible to prevent the chips from sticking together.
Dry them thoroughly using a dry, absorbent kitchen towel.
The chips should be completely dry before cooking.
Do not exceed the maximum quantities and operating times indicated in the recipe table, otherwise you will not get the expected result and may damage your device.
With Fry Delight, you can prepare dozens of delicious recipes for snacks, dishes and desserts and vary your pleasures every day!
• Meat: you can fry, grill or roast many types of meat in Fry Delight, whether chicken, beef, duck, etc.
• Vegetables: Fry Delight also allows you to grill vegetables such as carrots, courgettes, tomatoes, etc.
• Cakes/tarts/quiches: in Fry Delight, you can also cook cakes, tarts, quiches, or clafoutis by positioning the thermostat at the recommended temperature.
• Frozen food: frozen meals or snacks can also be prepared in Fry Delight. It is recommended to preheat the appliance for 3 minutes before adding the ingredients. It is not necessary to defrost ingredients before preparing them in Fry Delight.
• Crispy chicken nuggets with potato muffins, homemade chips with delicious skewered prawns, choose the dish you desire and follow the recipe with Fry Delight.
Preheating Fry Delight is optional and takes about 3 minutes.
To preheat Fry Delight, set the timer to slightly more than 3 minutes.
When the heating indicator switches off, fill the basket and set the timer to the required cooking time.
You can also place the ingredients in the basket immediately, without preheating; in this case, cooking time will be 3 minutes longer.
Shaking the food in the basket allows warm air to reach contact zones between the food and obtain a more even cooking.
Your food will be crispy and will have an attractive colour for an even more delicious result.
For an even cooking result, we recommend shaking the food in contact with each other or spread out in more than one layer in the basket (chips, nuggets, etc.) half-way through the cooking process.
For fragile food, place the food in the basket in a single layer because shaking it half-way through the cooking process may damage it.

When you shake the basket, check the colour of the ingredients as well.
To shake the ingredients, remove the basket from the appliance by the handle. Remove the basket from the pan. Shake it over the pan and check that the food is well mixed. Put the basket and pan back in the appliance.
Continue cooking.
Yes, you can use greaseproof paper or aluminium foil in your Fry Delight appliance.

However, never completely cover the bottom of the basket with these types of paper or any others. Proper air circulation in the basket will ensure optimum cooking of food. When the bottom of the basket is obstructed, the air flow circulating in the basket is reduced. This modifies your appliance's cooking performance.

Recommendations and rules for using greaseproof paper or aluminium foil in Fry delight:

- Never put greaseproof paper or aluminium foil in the appliance without putting food on it. The greaseproof paper/aluminium foil may be sucked into the heating block and burn.
- Also ensure that the greaseproof paper or aluminium foil used only slightly exceeds the surface area of the food you are cooking.
- You may use greaseproof paper in a tin provided that it only exceeds the edges of the tin slightly. The paper should never exceed the edge of the basket.
- You may use aluminium foil or metal trays in the appliance. Use as little aluminium foil as possible and ensure that there is enough space around the food so that air can circulate around it better.

Do not put greaseproof paper or aluminium foil at the bottom of the pan where grease and cooking residues are collected. This would disturb the air flow in the basket and the cooking process would not be optimal.
Fries or food are not cut evenly. They should be cut to the same size for perfect cooking.
There is no danger in pulling out the basket during cooking, but it is not recommended.
This will lower the temperature inside the device and, for "Smart" recipes, it may disrupt the cooking settings designed for optimal results.
We do not recommend the use of detergent products other than washing-up liquid.
It is best that the appliance be allowed to cool down before it is stored away.
Make sure your appliance is unplugged.
Leave to cool for one hour after use before storing away.
You may speed up the cooling process by removing the pan and basket from the appliance.
Caution, the pan and basket are very hot after use. Place them on a suitable heat-resistant surface.
Yes, Fry delight is fitted with rubber feet so that it can placed on a worktop.

However, be careful when removing the pan from the appliance after preheating or cooking. It is very hot and does not have support feet, therefore, the pan will be in direct contact with the worktop.

Recommendations and rules for using the hot pan on a worktop:
- If your worktop is made with a heat-sensitive material, such as laminated wood, we recommend placing the pan on a trivet or an insulating oven glove.
- If your worktop is made with a heat-resistant material, such as marble or metal, you can place the pan directly on it.
The pan and basket are dishwasher-safe.

Tip: If dirt adheres to the basket or the bottom of the pan, fill the pan with warm water and dishwashing liquid. Put the basket in the pan and leave the pan and the basket to soak for about 10 minutes. In this way, food residue will loosen and will be easier to remove. The removal of food residue and fat depends on the quality of your detergent. Ensure that you use a detergent that can dissolve oil.

If grease marks remain in the tank or basket and you are unable to remove them with a suitable detergent, use a degreaser product. Follow the instructions on the packaging.

The coating of the pan and the basket is non-stick. Do not use metal kitchen utensils or abrasive cleaning products to clean them because they may damage the non-stick coating.

You have probably salted your food during the cooking process. Don't salt your food before the end of cooking to avoid scratching.
For models using the tray, and to preserve its qualities for longer, do not use any metal utensils.
After following the instructions in the user manual for starting the appliance, make sure that your electrical socket is working by plugging another appliance. If it still does not work, do not try to dismantle or repair the appliance yourself, instead, take it to an approved repair centre

If this is the case, we inform you that this is not dangerous because all the materials used have been designed not to pose a risk for food.
During cooking, ingredients with a high fat content release their excess grease or oil at the bottom of the pan. If this oil is heated it may produce white smoke. This has no effect on the appliance or the final result.

To stop the white smoke, follow the steps below:

- Switch off the appliance by turning the timer button to zero.
- Put on gloves to protect your hands.
- Take out the pan and remove the basket. Meanwhile, place the basket on a plate. You can cover the basket in order to maintain a maximum of heat inside the basket.
- Remove the excess oil at the bottom of the pan. Use paper towels to do this.
- Place the basket back in the pan and slide the pan into the appliance.
- Continue cooking. Adjust the cooking time according to the remaining preparation time.

To avoid white smoke, follow the instructions below:

- Avoid preparing food with a very high fat content, such as sausages or other fatty meats.
- When you buy snacks, read the label for details about their fat content. Whenever possible, opt for snacks with a low fat content. It will be difficult to obtain a crispy result with snacks with a high fat content.
- Clean the pan immediately after preparing food with a high fat content.
- Put on gloves and remove the excess oil at the bottom of the pan. Use paper towels to do this.

If you leave the oil to cool, it may condense at the bottom of the pan. In this case, it will be difficult to remove.

If the solution above has not helped you to solve the problem, contact the support service.
It is normal and not dangerous for the outside surface of the appliance to become hot. This is a result of the internal heat being diffused to the outside surface of the appliance during the cooking process.
The manipulation of the handle and the temperature and cooking time setting buttons can be done without any danger while the appliance is heating.

The pan and the basket are very hot while the appliance is working. Caution is advised when handling these elements after the appliance has heated in order not to burn yourself.

After a prolonged period of use, some parts of the appliance will be very hot. The following icon allows you to identify these parts:
