Q: Can I use any frying oil in my 5in1 Fryer™?
Yes, except for any frying oil that solidifies when it is cool or cold.
Q: What is the minimum and maximum amount of oil you can use in the 5in1 Fryer™?
The minimum is 3 ½ quarts of oil (unless otherwise instructed on the Turkey Frying Chart; only when frying a whole turkey). The maximum is 5 quarts. Both measurements are engraved on the stem of the heating element of your Fryer. Never allow the oil level in your fryer to exceed 5 quarts.
Q: How long does my 5in1 Cooking System™ take to heat to 385°?
3 ½ quarts of oil will take around 13 minutes.
5 quarts of oil will take around 19 minutes.
Q: When must I use the Safety Extension Sleeve?
Ron recommends using the Safety Extension Sleeve all the time but it absolutely must be used whenever your recipe calls for using more than 3 ½ quarts of oil or when frying large foods (such as a whole turkey, large leg of lamb, ribs, whole chicken etc…) as well as when frying specific foods such as French Fries, bacon and when you SteamFry™ or SteamBake™. Always follow your recipe instructions.
Q: Can I reuse the oil that’s in my fryer multiple times?
Yes! Like Ron does in his own kitchen, you can reuse your oil multiple times! Just keep the new or used oil inside your 5in1 Fryer™ with the lid on top and keep the fryer on your countertop plugged in until you’re ready to fry again. There is no need to filter your oil or clean your 5in1 Fryer & Food Cooking System ™ after each use.
Q: Can I add new oil to the existing used oil before frying?
Q: How many times do you recommend using the same frying oil before cleaning the oil with the included oil filters and included funnel?
About 5 times depending on other factors such as food, time, heating temperature and quantity of oil.
Q: How do I clean my 5in1 Cooking System™?
All parts* are dishwasher safe except for the Electrical Control Box with attached heating element. The Control Box and Charcoal Filter Pad (inside the fryer lid) should never be put under water. The heating element can be washed with warm, soapy water but do not allow the Electrical Control Box to get wet! Wipe it down with a wet cloth and dry with a paper towel.
(*Note: Fancy White or Red Outer Bowls are not dishwasher safe and must be hand-washed).
Q: How do I clean my fryer oil?
To clean your oil, use your included “Hands Free” Funnel™ lined with one of the 3 included High Density Oil Cleaning Filters. New oil can also be added to the used, clean oil.
Q: How long should 3 High Density Oil Cleaning Filters last?
3 should last approximately 90 days with regular use. They are not washable for reuse.
Q: How can I tell when my used oil is not usable anymore?
Oil will smell bad, start to smoke when heated and / or the color of the oil will be dark, not clear.
