How long do you cook chicken. Does the green light need to come on before you start frying?

The Onwer's Guide for the Rival CF106-W Deep Fryer is available here:

For deep-fried chicken, preheat oil to 360 degrees F. Bread and then fry for 20 minutes or until golden brown and done.

The surest way is to check the internal temperature of the thickest portion using a tip sensitive digital thermometer. The internal temperature of chicken should reach 165 degrees F.

See here for safe cooking temperatures:

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.


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.

Won't turn on

Yes there is. The heater assembly has some slides that must be inserted in the base for the unit to light up.

Stopped heating

I have the same problem. I read in the manual that there is a reset switch at the back of the control panel, but I can't find the switch.

Cuts off

Like most of the problems listed on FixYa about this Deep Fryer ours worked fine the last time we used it, but we could not get the power light to come on again. I found that there is s SAFETY Micro-switch on the heating element control unit. This switch prevents the heating element from being turned on when it is not in the Fryer Pan. The accuator lever for the switch is located under the guide slides on the heating element control unit. It is a metal lever which is moved as you mount the heating element control unit on the fryer pan. You have to look closely under one of the guide ledges on the heating control unit to see it . The problem is that over time the adjustment of the lever changes as it flexes under use. I simply readjusted the lever by forming it with a pair of long-nosed pliers. CAUTION !!!!!!! You can bend the lever so far that the switch is closed all the time defeating the Safety Switch and create a hazard in that the unit will heat as soon as you plug it in whether inserted in the Fryer Pan or lying out on any surface. This might burn someone or cause a fire. Good Luck

Rival deep fryer not heating

I have a Rival Fryer Model CF250. Was working great for weeks, then after doing a few rounds of wings it quit. All lights were off and no heat.

I took the entire fryer apart and began testing connections for resistance, voltage, etc. They are very basic machines. It appears to me that my failure has to do with a diode, this particular diode sits protected by plastic and held by a srping mechanism, I assume it is the temperature sensor.

I assume that the completed circuit relies on this sensor so it being bad has made power quit.
