When the deep fryer is not in use or when left unattended, disconnect the deep fryer from the wall outlet.

Before attempting to move the deep fryer, or before assembling or disassembling parts, cleaning or storing, turn the 'ON/OFF' switch to 'O' (off). Disconnect from the wall outlet, and allow to cool down.

It is recommended that this appliance not be moved when it contains hot oil. Hot oil is very dangerous and can cause serious burns. Use extreme caution.

This appliance is for household use only. Do not use this appliance for anything other than its intended use. Do not use

in moving vehicles or boats. Do not use outdoors.

Regularly inspect the supply cord, plug and actual appliance for any damage. Do not operate if damaged in any way or after the appliance malfunctions. Immediately cease use of the appliance and call Breville Customer Service at 1-866-BREVILLEfor examination, repair or adjustment.

Do not allow the cord to run underneath or be wrapped around the appliance, as this may impair the function of the magnetic safety release.

Connect the plug to a polarized power supply only. As a safety feature, this appliance has a polarized plug, (one blade is wider than the other). It will only fit into the outlet in one direction. If this plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug and try again. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified

electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.

For any maintenance other than cleaning, call Breville Customer Service at 1-866-BREVILLE.

For safety reasons it is recommended you plug your Breville appliance directly into its own electrical outlet on a dedicated circuit separate from

other appliances. If the electric circuit is overloaded with other appliances, your appliance may not function properly.

Use in conjunction with a power strip or extension cord is not recommended.

Important safetytips

Always keep lid closed while deep fryer is cooking food. Use basket handle to raise and lower basket. Always raise basket out of hot oil and lock into the ‘Load or Drain’ position, to allow food to drain for 10 to 20 seconds before opening lid.

BEWARE OF STEAM WHEN OPENING LID. Use protective hot pads or insulated oven mitts when removing the lid to prevent burns or personal injury.

Wet food should be dried first with paper towels before frying. Remove loose ice from frozen foods. Close the lid when frying. Beware of oil splattering when food is put into the oil.

DO NOT EXCEED 50 minutes use in a two hour period.


To prevent damage to countertop or tabletop finish, use a nonflammable, heat-resistantcoaster

or PLACE MAT between the appliance and the countertop or tabletop surface. Never place on

carpet, furniture, or other combustible materials.

Keep the deep fryer at least 4 inches away from walls or other objects during operation. Do not place any objects on top of the deep fryer while it is operating.

Be sure oil vessel is filled to at least the minimum ('MIN') oil level. Do not fill

above the maximum ('MAX') oil level. Do not operate appliance without oil or with an insufficient amount of oil. Never pour oil into heated oil vessel.

Do not operate the deep fryer if the lid and the oil vessel are not completely dry.

Keep the deep fryer out of reach of children while in use and away from edges of countertops where it could be pulled off or pushed over by children.

Do not use any solid/hydrogenated oil, shortening or lard in this deep fryer.


Moisture in foods will cause steam to rise from the deep fryer, this is normal.To avoid scalding from the steam, be sure to reach around the deep fryer instead of reaching over the deep fryer when adjusting the temperature dial.

2.2 lb Frying Basket

Oil Vessel

Removable, enamel coated vessel with pouring spout for mess free oil maintenance.

Prevent Oil Splatter

The frying basket can be locked into a 'Load or Drain' position with the lid in place.

This prevents oil splatter when uncooked foods are immersed, and drains excess oil from cooked food.


The fryer will automatically turn off if the oil temperature heats up beyond the maximum temperature.

1800 Watts of Power

Ensures the oil quickly reaches the selected temperature

and recovers after frozen or uncooked foods are added.

Variable Temperature Control

The lower temperatures are suitable for blanching while the higher temperatures (up to 375°F) provide restaurant quality, crispy results.

Permanent Mesh Filter

Vents allow steam to escape while the permanent filter reduces the release of oil vapors and odors.

Lid with Viewing Window

Allows you to safely and easily monitor the cooking progress.

Cool Plate™ Technology

Breville’s unique Cool Plate™ Element is positioned closer to the bottom of the oil vessel. This results in a proportionally larger 'Fry Zone', allowing you to cook 1lb of french fries in less than 3qts of oil.






























Commercially-InspiredCool Zone

The Cool Plate™ Element is suspended in oil, creating a ‘Cool Zone’ at the bottom of the oil vessel. This prevents heavy debris from burning, which reduces odor and extends the useful lifespan of oil.



Increased Oil Life

Oil repeatedly heated above its 'Smoke Point' temperature quickly breaks down affecting oil color, taste and smell. The Cool Plate™ Element's large, flat, surface-areagently heats the oil to its optimum cooking temperature. In comparison, standard tube elements may fluctuate up to 70°F hotter, damaging the oil. The result is prolonged oil life and better tasting food.
