Re: Boiling oil seeping from tefal deep fat fryer

Had simular prolem with Bush fryer. When frying the moisture from frozen or fresh products cause the fat/oil to foam there is usually a low point where the element is fitted and it is at this point that the hot oil escapes all over your work top.
Try to make sure that fresh stuff is dry as possible and frozen stuff has little ice with it.
Ensure that the oil is not above the level marker.
Hope that is of help. I spend days looking for a leak that didn't exsist

How can i clean my Tefal maxi fry deep fat fryer

Hi there, the best way I have found to clean a deep fryer is to empty it of the oil and fill it up with 1/3 water and detergent, turn it on but dont close the lid, or if you do close the lid carefully monitor it otherwise it will spill over and let the water boil after about 10mins turn it off and wipe away the ****, empty the water out fill it again with just water, same again for 10mins, empty it and wipe it clean with a cloth
