Don't know how to work euro-pro deep fryer
Place the oil tub in the housing, and put the control unit on the back of the housing with the heating element inside the oil tub. Put room temperature (not chilled) shortening and/or lard in the oil tub. (Solid fats make better french fries, IMO.) Put the unit where you aim to cook, on a clear expanse of counter, where no one will knock it off. You are about to make boiling oil, and the potential for injury is truly medieval. Attach the magnetic power cord to the back of the control unit, and position the unit with the front of the control unit, which is at the back of the oil tub, facing you. Plug it into the wall. The magnetic cord attachment is easily knocked off, which is a safety feature, so don't knock it. If it comes off, just put it back on and restart the unit. Push button at lower right of control unit that looks like a 0 and 1 superimposed on each other. This is the power button. Put the lid on the unit with the two slots on top of the lid facing towards the front of the unit where you are. These two slots are where the basket will sit, but you haven't used the basket yet. Adjust the temperture using the + and- buttons. 375 is good for french fries. Now wait until the red light goes out and the green light (I believe) stays on. Now it's up to temperature and you can cook. Put frozen or washed and patted-dry (with a towel) french fried potatoes or battered fish or whatever you want to cook in the wire basket. Quickly lower the basket into the oil and replace the lid: back edge goes down first, then front of lid last. Set the unit's timer if desired, or just use your own timer. It will beep at you when your time is up. When you're done, you can wash the basket by hand or in the dish washer and wipe the unit off with a warm soapy dish cloth. Wait until the oil is cool to room temp before attempting to put the unit in a cupboard. Very hazardous with large potential for mess otherwise!
