The temp control tops out at 390. The oil doesn't get hot enough to make french fries


You need a good external thermometer to check your oil temp.
Everything fries at 350-375 degrees.
Any hotter and the oil burns.

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..

What kind of oil (vegtable or corn oil )


Hi!

Please use blended vegetable oil, pure corn oil, sunflower oil,
soybean oil or grapeseed (canola oil) because these oils have a high
smoke point. Peanut oil is not recommended because it greatly
impacts the flavor.

• Oils should never be mixed when deep frying.
• High heat, water, and burnt food particles break down the oil’s smoke
point.
• Replace oil if you notice:
- Excessive smoking at normal temperatures
- Strong oil discoloration
- A rancid smell
- Excessive foaming around the frying food

Thanks for using FixYa. Do rate the solution as Fixya if found helpful.

Thanks

French fries always turn out soggy


It seems to me that if the fries always turn out to soggy what you need to do is to cook them at a higher temperature for a shorter period of time, I think they are sitting in the oil far to long hence the soggy result.

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.

Heating


Some Deep Fryers heat up faster than others, please see details below for pre-heating times: Non-Immersion Element (No element in the Oil): 25 to 30 Minutes Immersion Element (Element in the Oil): 7 to 10 Minutes Are you by any chance overloading the fryer? try smaller batches. Preheat the oven to 180 to 200 F. Heat the oil in the fryer to 280 or 290 F. In small batches appropriate to the size of the fryer (fries for a serving of 4 people may need to be divided into 2 or 3 groups), fry each batch for about 8 minutes at this temp. Remove to a holding bowl. They will look limp, nasty and oily. (This uses 1/4" square fries from baking pototoes cut with a standard mandoline.) When all the fries have been precooked, increase the oil temp to 375 F. Add the fries back to the oil in the same sized batches as before. It will take 3 to 5 minutes for them to crisp and brown. Drain, salt, and move to a cloth-lined bowl and hold in the 180 F. oven. Let the oil temp recover to 375 F. and cook the next batch in the same manner. Repeat, holding interim fries in the 180 oven, until all the fries are done. When all batches are done, toss to distribute salt and the new fries with old, and serve immediately. Properly done, all commercial french fries pale in comparison to these. However, I cannot guarantee that this method works with frozen commercial products. I always use fresh baking pototoes. That said, the frozen product should work to its optimal advantage when done in small batches with the first batches held in the warming oven as the other batches are done. If it still doesn't reach 300 F then by all means take it back to the shop and ask for a replacement. If you're out of warranty get an estimate for a repair. Good luck and bon apetite ;]
