When the appliance provided with a flexible cord less than 4-1/2 feet(1.4m) in length, the extension cord should be a grounding-type 3-wire cord and meet the following requirements. a) A short power-supply cord (or detachable power-supply cord) is to be provided to reduce the risk resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. b) Longer detachable power-supply cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use. Exception: An extension cord or longer detachable cord is not recommended for use with deepfat fryers and cooker/fryers. c) If a long detachable power-supply cord or extension cord is used: 1) The marked electrical rating of the cord or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance; 2) If the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be a grounding 3-wire cord; 3) The longer cord should be arranged so that it does not drape over the countertop or table top where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally.

To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.

Thoroughly clean the basket and pan with hot water, some mild dish liquid and a non-abrasive sponge. Note: You can also clean these parts in the dishwasher. 4. Wipe the inside and outside of the appliance with a wet cloth. This is an oil-free fryer that works using hot air. Do not fill the pan with oil or frying fat.


Magic Chef® Air Fryer Product Guide

Preparing for use Place the appliance on a stable, horizontal, and even surface. Do not place the appliance on a non-heat-resistant surface. Do not fill the pan with oil or any other liquid. Do not put anything on top of the appliance.

Quick Start Guide The Magic Chef® Air Fryer can prepare a wide range of foods. See the “settings” section below for ideas! Air Frying Instructions 1. Plug in the power cord. 2. Carefully pull the basket out of the unit. 3. Put your ingredients in the basket. • Note: Do not exceed the MAX fill line with food, as it may negatively affect the cooking process. 4. Slide the basket back into the unit. •

Caution: Do not touch the basket during or immediately after use, as it gets very hot. Only hold it by the handle.

5. Determine the required time for proper cooking of your food (check the “settings” section for recommendations) • • •

Note: Add 3 minutes to the cooking time if the unit is not warmed up yet. You can also preheat the unit before adding the food to the basket. During the cooking process, the “heating” LED indicator will turn on and off as the heating element works to maintain the steady temperature of 392 degrees. Some ingredients require shaking halfway through the preparation time (see the “settings” section for which foods require this). Pull the basket out of the appliance by the handle and shake it, then slide the basket back into the unit to resume cooking.

When the timer runs out, the unit will ding, notifying you that your food is ready.

Check if the ingredients are cooked to your liking. If the ingredients are not ready yet, simply slide the basket back into the appliance and set the timer for a few extra minutes.

Empty the basket into a bowl or onto a plate.

Tip: To remove large or fragile ingredients, lift the ingredients out of the basket using a pair of tongs.


Magic Chef® Air Fryer Product Guide

Air Fryer Settings This table below will help you to choose timer settings for the specific food you’re cooking. Keep in mind that these settings are general recommendations, and results will vary based on the type, size and quantity of your ingredients. Note that this unit runs only at a steady temperature of 392 degrees. Helpful Tips •

• • • •

Smaller ingredients or quantities usually require only slightly less cooking time than much larger ingredients or quantities. For example, doubling the quantity of food does not require doubling the cooking time. Shaking the basket half way through the cooking time (or rotating the food if it’s meat or something larger) helps the air fryer cook more evenly. Do not prepare extremely greasy ingredients in the air fryer, such as sausages. Use pre-made dough to prepare filled snacks quickly and easily. Pre-made dough also requires a shorter preparation time than homemade dough. You can also use the air fryer to reheat leftovers. Setting the unit for 5-10 minutes is generally best for this. Just check your food and turn it every few minutes.

Caring for Your Air Fryer Cleaning Remove the power cord from the socket before cleaning the unit to prevent risk of electric shock. Wait until the air fryer has cooled down completely before handling or cleaning the basket, in order to prevent risk of burns. The air fryer itself must not be immersed in water, as there is a risk of electric shock.

Clean the appliance after every use, especially the frying basket. Do not use metal kitchen utensils or abrasive cleaning materials to clean the frying basket, as this may damage the non-stick coating. Cleaning Instructions: 1. Remove the power cord from the wall socket and let the appliance cool down. • Note: Remove the pan to help the air fryer cool down more quickly. 2. Wipe the outside of the appliance with a wet cloth. 3. Clean the basket with hot water, some dish soap and a non-abrasive sponge. •

Tip: If food is still stuck to the bottom of the pan, soak the pan in hot water and dish soap for a little while. Then, scrub out the food with a sponge or brush.
