How do you fry fresh fries?

Baking real Belgian and fresh fries always happens in two steps:

1.   The pre-frying (hereby the fries become cooked): set the fryer to 150°C-170°C (depending on the season and the type of potato) and let the frying oil come to heat. Once the control light goes out you let the fries fry for about 5 minutes (depending on the thickness of your fries). Get the basket with fries out of the fryer and leave it next to the fryer for a couple of minutes or put them in a bowl.
2.   The final frying (hereby the fries become beautifully golden brown and crispy): set the thermostat button to 190°C and let the frying oil warm up. Wait until the indicator light goes out and fry the fries a second time for about 3-4 minutes (depending on how brown you like them), and put them in a bowl with some absorbing paper towel under them.

A few tips:

Always use oil which is suited for hot preparations and appropriate for high temperatures.
Preferably use frying oil of high quality. When you have a FRITEL fryer with TURBO SF® System, you can also fry with frying fat.
NEVER leave the basket with fries hang over the fryer after the first frying session for else the fries will become limp.
NEVER fry two different products at the same frying session. So no fries and croquettes together.
Replace the oil (or the fat) after about ten frying sessions.
Fill the basket up to two-thirds MAXIMUM. Bigger portions give a less crispy result.

Shake the fries frequently so that all sides can get respectively cooked and crispy.

How do you fry frozen fries?

Set the thermostat at 190°C, even if the packaging often indicates a lower temperature. If you set a lower temperature, it will take longer, the fries will be greasier and therefore less crispy. Always make sure that NO ice ends up in the oil. You can prevent this by sifting the fries so that the ice gets separated from the fries to put them in the basket afterwards. Also never let the fries get defrosted before frying them.

For how long and at what temperature are ingredients to be fried?

Below you find the designated temperatures and frying times for frying the most common products. Of course the designated times are purely indicative. After all the frying times can vary strongly depending on the product.

What types of potatos are the most suited for fries?

The most frequently used potatos for fries are ‘floury’ potatos (so called because of their high starch content). The most famous of those is the BINTJE.

Other types of potatos, suited for fries, are i.a. Agria, Première, Santé, Victoria, Astrix, Fontane, Markies, Ramos.

Which oils are most suited to fry with?

All oils with the mention “for frying” are suited to fry with.

Preferably choose vegetable frying oil, like groundnut oil, rapeseed oil, corn oil or sunflower oil.

Palm and soybean oil are less appropriate for frying because even though they are both high temperature resistant, both oils are high in saturated fats.

Both for taste and health frying fat needs to be replaced regularly. It’s time for clean oil when the oil turns darker and syrupy and when it starts smelling strongly. This is on average after eight to ten frying sessions.

Always use good quality oil. Don’t buy any inferior oil, there it degrades much faster than good quality oil.

If you have a FRITEL fryer with TURBO SF ® System you can also fry with frying fat.

Can one also fry with solid fat?

This is possible if your FRITEL fryer has a Turbo SF® System. You can then melt the fat in the fryer directly. How do you do this? Divide the block of solid fat in little pieces and spread them directly and evenly on the heating element (and so not in the basket). Turn the thermostat onto the position for melting solid fat and wait until all the frying fat has melted. Choose the desired frying temperature only when all the fat has melted completely. When the indicator light has gone out the desired temperature has been reached and the fryer is set to fry.

After frying the fat will automatically become solid again. Thereafter always use the fat melting position first until the solid fat has melted completely and only then set the desired temperature.

How often do you need to replace the frying oil?

Furthermore keep in mind that certain products will destroy your fat completely, like paprika, parsley, bacon, cheese. Finally oil of inferior quality will often be cheaper, but this will also much quicker need replacing.
That depends on different things. Firstly the time to replace the oil (or frying fat) depends on what you are frying. If you only fry fries your fat will last much longer then when you fry cheese croquettes, crunchy meatballs, satays, … We recommend to replace the frying oil (or the frying fat) after about 10 frying sessions.

How much fries can one fry at a time?

For an optimal result with crispy fried fries we recommend to use the following max. quantities:

•       Frozen fries: max. 150 gr per liter oil
•       Fresh fries: max. 100 gr per liter oil

How do I clean the fryer?

For starters remove the power plug from the electrical outlet and let the fryer cool down completely before dismounting the fryer. First remove the basket, then the control panel with heating element and finally the tub.

NEVER plunge the control panel in water or any other liquid. Only cleanse it with a moist towel. Depending on the material of the fryer the parts may or may not be cleaned in the dishwasher:

•       Stainless steel fryer: stainless steel housing, lid, tub can be cleaned in the dishwasher or of course in hot soapy water.

•       Synthetic fryer: synthetic housing and lid, stainless steel tub can be cleaned in the dishwasher or of course in hot soapy water.

•       Lacquered metallic fryer: this material may NOT go in the dishwasher. Only clean with hot suds. In the dishwasher there could be decolouring as a result of aggressive detergents.

The frying basket can be cleaned in hot soapy water with a dishwashing brush. Never let the basket soak in the soapy water in order to avoid oxidation.

To clean your fryer easily, quickly and safely we recommend using the FRITEL cleaner for fryers. Fill the tub of the fryer with hot water over 40°C and add about 10 caps of FRITEL cleaner for fryers. Let the product work for about 20 minutes and empty the tub afterwards.

Rinse thoroughly and dry off with a soft cloth. Your tub looks as good as new! The FRITEL cleaner for fryers is based on natural enzymes and therefore it is environmentally friendly, bio-degradable and NON-toxic. The FRITEL cleaner for fryers can also be used on all surfaces, i.e. lacquered metal, synthetics, stainless steel…

Why does the heating element of the fryer decolourise?

Once the heating element warms up to high temperatures and makes contact with the oil decolouration kicks in. it’s perfectly normal and unavoidable.

What to do when your fryer stopped working?

To avoid bringing your appliance to your retail store unnecessarily check the following 4 things yourself first:If it is none the above defects, contact your retail store.

·       Is the appliance mounted correctly?

Behind the housing there are two sliding brackets. They are vertical synthetic brackets that connect the housing to the control panel. If the control panel isn’t applied correctly on the sliding brackets the fryer won’t work. This is for your own safety.

·       Has your fryer jumped to safety?

For your safety the fryer turns itself off sometimes. The fryer can however be put into operation again by pressing the RESET button. This RESET button is located at the back in the cable storage and is red.

·       Does the tub fit ok?

The tub needs to be placed in the housing with the side with the notch faced to the control panel.

·       Are the sliding brackets intact?

One of both sliding brackets has a stop pin that puts the fryer into action electronically every time you mount it. If this stop pin has broken the fryer will not work. In that case contact your retail store with the details of your fryer (purchase date, fryer model, production date, …). These details are retrievable in the cable storage at the backside of the fryer.

When can the fryer boil over?

The frying oil contains a lot of water: alimentations consist of water for a great deal. This goes as well for fresh products as for frozen ones. Fresh potatoes consist for 75% of water.

During the first frying session they lose about 65% of this water, which means that this water ends up in the oil, where it sinks to the bottom (Cold Zone). The Cold Zone however warms up slightly and reaches 100°C. At that moment the water turns into steam which has a lower specific weight than water. Hence your oil may start bubbling and boiling over. Our patented Turbo SF® System precludes the phenomenon of dangerous splashes under the condition of normal use of your fryer.

HINT: Always dry off your fries thoroughly before frying them
HINT: Shake off frozen fries in a sieve first to remove excess ice.

The frying oil is due for replacement: if the oil is (too) dirty it can also start bubbling or boiling over. Replace the oil in that case. It doesn’t suffice to partially add clean oil.

The frying basket is too full: the quantity of fried goods that fits in your fryer is determined by the volume of your fryer. We recommend you never exceed more than 150 grams of fried goods per liter capacity.

The handle of the basket falls down?

The handle of the basket has not been pushed backwards far enough or the handle of the basket is too loose. In the first case: apply a little force on the handle, pull it back all the way so that it stays put. This way it cannot fall down anymore. In the second case it is best to take the handle of the basket and bend the legs a little more in order for them to close more tightly. Next attach the handle back to the basket and stretch it back again until it stays put.

There is smoke coming from the fryer. What could it be?

Different causes are possible:

·  Not enough frying oil. Please respect the min. level in the tub. It is indicated in the tub with a line and the word MIN next to it.

·  Wrong or too old or “damaged” oil.

° Damaged oil: Certain ingredients make frying oil instantly useless like herbs (paprika, parsley, …), bacon, onion, …
° Too old oil: Outdated frying oil or already too much fried with
° Wrong oil: Not every oil is suited to use heated

SOLUTION: Replace the oil in all of the case above.

The sliding bracket doesn’t click through all the way and therefore the fryer doesn’t work?

It is possible that some fat or oil have deposited on the sliding bracket as a result of which the electrical installation  can not be placed far enough on the sliding bracket. Therefore, an electrical connection is not possible for your fryer and it will not work. The solution is simple: degrease/clean the sliding bracket thoroughly and mount the electrical installation again.

What is the difference between an anti-dust lid and a filter lid?

An anti-dust lid only serves to store the fryer dust free. Under no circumstances can this anti-dust lid be placed on the fryer while heating, frying or cooling down. At all time the oil needs to be cooled down completely.

A filter lid may well be placed on the fryer while heating, baking and cooling down.

What is a Cold Zone?

The resistance of the fryer hangs directly in the frying oil. You do not have to wait long, in no time the oil reaches the desired temperature. What's more, the frying residues sink into the Cold Zone and do not burn. The frying oil lasts up to 3 times longer.

What does Turbo SF mean?

Besides a Cold Zone these fryers are equipped with a patented double heating element. We call this Turbo SF. The advantages of the double heating element are:

·            Up to 50% faster frying

·            More crispy and less greasy fries, therefore healthier

·            Quicker, therefore also energy-saving
·            Use of solid fat is possible thanks to the unique solid fat melting position

What is FryTastic?

The Fritel FryTastic fryer also features the Turbo SF system and on top of that offers the following extras:

·       Digital control with exact frying temperatures

·       Push-turn-confirm service
·       Automatic switch off after 2 hours ánd after error detection

·       Sound signal ‘ready'

·       Backlit display
·       Electronically operated fat melting position

Where can one find the nameplate with the serial number?

The nameplate is located on the backside of the fryer, on the inside of the cable storage.
