Food sticking to basket

I have a 3 liter Rival deep fryer
Why does the food I'm deep frying stick to the basket?
I deep fried some batter dipped chicken in the fryer and it took me 3 hours to clean the basket. I did 1 drum stick and a small thigh and batter stuck to the basket. I did the other pieces 2 at a time and what a mess. I imagine frying french fries will do the same???
Thanks Alice

    Ok I got to really looking at my 3 litre deep fryer and I saw that the basket touches the heating element so I imagine thats why the food sticks to the basket. The book says that the oil should be around all the food so if the basket touches the heating element that shouldn't be.???

i have this problem to. i think the best way to fix it is to drop the basket in the oil with the lid open, then carefully drop the food directly into the oil, that should cause the batter on the bottom to firm up a bit before resting on the basket. hope that helps.

about the Lid, make sure that you have the control panel firmly in the two grooves and the lid will stay shut. If it isn't in the right grooves, the lid will not shut. My husband had to point that out to me when I was having the same problem.

I had this same problem which is how I came across your post, and I found on the Rival website ( www.rivalproducts.com ) you can email the company and tell them the model number and they will email you the manual, and if you're like me and hate to wait that long, you can call their customer service number and tell them what you need and they will email you the manual in about an hour. The number the website gave me was  1-800-323-9519, and I also realized there was also a number on the box too.

How can I keep food from sticking to the bottom of my fry baskets?


After coating the food in batter slowly dip it into the oil allowing the item to get coated generously before dropping to the bottom of the fry basket. After a few seconds it is helpful to then lightly shake the fry basket.

Our battered chicken and fish is sticking to the basket what do we do?


Hi there:- You mean the products you put into the deep fryer stick to the basket or sunk down to the bottom and stick to the bottom basket. It can be a number of reasons but the most important is the temperature of the oil, it should be 350 degree F or more to do the frying , any temperature below that will be call boiling not frying. Secondly the batter mix ( you should try out and make your own batter mix ) Hope this can help.

How much oil do I add to the fryer. is there a fill line


the oil depends on the food item you intent to fry and the size and quantity. If there is only few items then use oil to just dip them in soaked but if there is more items to be done , then you can have the to be fried food just having the fully dipped level of oil.
Since the oil which is fried once is never used, it is good to use the least quantity that is needed so as not to waste oil.
Hence there is no specific fill line, but your Logic..

Battered fish sticks tobottom of basket


Laura,

If you are battering your fish yourself, all you need to do is slowly submerge the fish into the oil, in increments of 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and then 100%. You can do this in less than 30 seconds, you're just giving the batter time to "set". Also, about 30 seconds after the entire fish is submerged in oil, give the basket a good shake. This should dislodge it from the bottom of the basket. Keep your eye on things as the fish is frying.

If it's pre-battered fish, then just drop it in, wait about 30-45 seconds and give the basket a good shake, as I said before.

Good luck!

Do not know how to use


Oil darkens with use the oil food molecules burn when subjected to high prolonged heat.
When frying foods such as fish or chicken use the oil once.

Do not filter oil over to reuse. Storing the oil in the refrigerator may extend the life of the oil, this should not be done ever. This process of chilling the oil and then burning the oil to room temperature causes excessive splattering furing the heat up.

Storing the covered oil in a cool dark place, for up to three months. ( remember to check oil when you use for color, smell, or excessive foaming. Throw out if there is signs of all the above.

This unit has a warranty for one year from the day of purchase.


Cooking:

When starting let unit reheat 7-10 minutes. This will get the heat to desired temperature. Re4ady light will cycle on/off during frying as temperature fluctuates due to food load.
Types of foods cooking: temperatures and time of cooking

Chicken strips 375 F. 5-8 minutes

Chicken pieces, bone-in 375 F. 15-20 minutes

Fish, battered 340 F. 8-10 minutes

French fries, frozen 375F. 3-5 minutes

F375F. 3-5 minutes

Onion rings 375 F. 3-5 minutes

Shrimp, breaded 375 F. 2-5 minutes
When frying frozen food if iced rub off lose as this can make the temperature of oil cool down. Pre-cooked frozen food cooks faster and does not come out oily.


I cannot wait to start cooking in mine as I got it for a christmas gift. Great recipes in the owners manual:

Apples fritters yum yum,beer batter for fish or chicken, deep fried chicken , chicken Kiev, quick doughnut made from biscuits, add topping of ground cinnamon and suger.

Cool touch t-fal deep fryer. I can't find my instruction manual. I took it to work to read and now I can't find it! I want to fry some fish, french fries and cheese sticks. Thank you very much, Bonnie


My Cool Touch won't come on either. I wiggled the magnetic power cord and it came on one time but then, the second time, I tried wiggling the cord to relenquish the problem and zilch! Becoming more and more frustrated and since my fish was battered and ready to go I started pressing at the connections. It turned out that PUSHING THE POWER SWITH TO 'ON' AND THEN APPLYING FIRMER PRESSURE IN THAT SAME DIRECTION made the light come on, signifying POWER!!! Hope this helps. I imagine that there is some type of connection from the 'ON' switch that just doesn't connect and by pushing the 'ON' button firmly upwards the connection is made.
