6ENGLISHImportantRead these instructions for use carefully before using the appliance and save them for futurereference. Check if the voltage indicated on the appliance corresponds to the local mains voltage beforeyou connect the appliance.Only connect the appliance to an earthed wall socket.If the mains cord is damaged, it must be replaced by Philips, a service centre authorised byPhilips or similarly qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard.Always return the appliance to a service centre authorised by Philips for examination orrepair. Do not attempt to repair the appliance yourself, otherwise your guarantee willbecome invalid.Clean the separate parts of the fryer thoroughly before using the appliance for the first time(see chapter 'Cleaning'). Make sure all parts are completely dry before you fill the fryer withoil or liquid fat.Never immerse the control panel with the heating element attached to it in water nor rinseit under the tap.Always unplug the appliance after use. Do not move the fryer until it has cooled downsufficiently.Do not switch the appliance on before you have filled it with oil or fat. Make sure the fryer isalways filled to a level between the two indication marks on the inside of the inner bowl.During frying, hot steam is released through the filter. Keep your hands and face at a safedistance from the steam.You should also be careful of the hot steam when you open the lid.Keep the appliance out of the reach of children. Do not let the mains cord hang over theedge of the table or worktop on which the appliance is standing.This appliance is intended for household use only. If the appliance is used improperly or for(semi-)professional purposes or if it is used in a way that is not in accordance with theinstructions for use, the guarantee will become invalid and Philips will not accept liability forany damage caused.Fry food golden-yellow instead of dark or brown and remove burnt remnants! Do not frystarchy foods, especially potato and cereal products, at a temperature above 175cC (tominimise the production of acrylamide).Safety featuresSafety cut-outThis appliance is equipped with a safety cut-out that switches the appliance off if it overheats.Thismay happen if there is not enough oil or fat in the fryer or if blocks of solid fat are being melted inthe fryer, which will prevent the heating element from being able to give off its heat.Take the following measures if the fryer doesn't work anymore:1 Let the oil or fat cool down.This will take approx. 60 minutes.2 Carefully press the reset button at the back of the control panel with a small screwdriver(fig. 1).Now the appliance is ready for use again.Safety switchThe safety switch in the control panel ensures that the heating element can only be switched on ifthe control panel has been assembled correctly. Always make sure the control panel is in the right position ('click') (fig. 2).
ENGLISH7Auto shut-off (type HD6144 only)The fryer will switch off automatically after 2 hours.When this happens, the power-on light in theon/off switch will go out. To switch the appliance back on, press the on/off switch again (fig. 3).Cool zoneDuring frying, loose food particles collect on the bottom of the inner bowl. As the heating elementhas been placed some distance above the bottom of the inner bowl and primarily heats the oil orfat above it, the oil or fat between the bottom of the inner bowl and the heating element remainsrelatively cool (cool zone).This prevents the food particles that end up in this zone from burning,increasing the number of times you can re-use the oil or fat.Preparing for use1 Put the appliance on a horizontal, even and stable surface out of the reach of children.If you want to place the fryer on top of the cooker, make sure the rings of the cooker have beenturned off and are cold.2 Fill the dry fryer with oil, liquid fat or melted solid fat up to the top indication mark on theinside of the inner bowl (see section 'Oil and fat' for instructions on how to use solid fat)(fig. 4).HD6142 andHD6144Oil/liquid fat Solid fatHD6140Oil/liquid fatSolid fatMin.3.2 l2800 gMin.2.2 l1925 g3050 gMax.2.5 l2200 gMax.3.5 lOil and fatNever mix different types of oil or fat!We advise you to use frying oil or liquid frying fat, preferably vegetable oil or fat that is rich inunsaturated fats (e.g. linoleic acid).It is possible to use solid frying fat, but in that case extra precautions are necessary to prevent thefat from spattering and the heating element from overheating or becoming damaged.1 If you want to use new blocks of fat, melt them slowly over a low heat in a normal pan.2 Pour the melted fat carefully into the fryer.3 Store the fryer with the resolidified fat still in it at room temperature.4 If the fat gets very cold, it may start spattering when melted. Punch some holes into theresolidified fat with a fork to prevent this (fig. 5).Be careful not to damage the inner bowl with the fork.Using the applianceFryingBe careful: hot steam will escape from the filter in the lid during frying.1 Take the entire cord from the cord storage compartment and put the plug in the wall socket(fig. 6).Make sure the cord does not come into contact with hot parts of the appliance.
8ENGLISH2 Switch the fryer on by means of the on/off switch (fig. 7).The power-on light in the on/off switch and the temperature light go on.3 Set the temperature control to the required temperature (160-190cC) (fig. 8).For information about which temperature to select, check the package of the food to be friedor the tables at the end of these instructions for use.- The oil or fat will be heated to the selected temperature in 10 to 15 minutes.- While the fryer is heating up, the temperature light goes out and on a number of times.When itstays out for some time, the oil or fat has reached the preset temperature.- After a batch has been fried, the temperature light also goes on.Wait until it stays out for sometime before frying the next batch.BYou can leave the basket in the fryer while the oil or fat is heating up.-4 Lift the handle to raise the basket to its highest position ('click') (fig. 9).5 Open the lid by pressing the release button.The lid will open automatically (fig. 10).6 Remove the basket from the fryer.7 Put the food to be fried in the basket.For the best frying results, we advise you not to exceed the maximum quantities mentioned below.BHD6142and HD6144Home-made FrozenFrench fries French friesHD6140Home-made FrozenFrench fries French friesMax. quantity1250 g900 gMax. quantity1000 g500 gRecommended 450 gquantity for bestresultRecommendedquantity for bestresult650 g700 g400 gDo not fry Asian rice cakes (or similar types of food) in this appliance as this might cause heavyspattering or violent bubbling of the oil or fat.8 Carefully put the basket in the fryer (fig. 11).Make sure the basket has been properly inserted.9 Close the lid.10 HD6144 only - Set the required frying time (see section 'Timer' in this chapter).You can also use the fryer without setting the timer.11 Press the release button of the basket handle and carefully lower the basket to its lowestposition (fig. 12).BBFor a good end result, stick to the preparation time indicated on the package of the food to be friedor the preparation time mentioned in the tables at the end of these instructions for use.For a uniform golden frying result, lift the basket out of the oil or fat a few times during frying andgently shake the contents.Timer (HD6144 only)BThe timer indicates the end of the frying time, but does NOT switch the fryer off.1 Press the timer button to set the frying time in minutes (fig. 13).The set time will become visible on the display.2 Keep the button pressed to put the minutes forward quickly. Release the button once therequired frying time has been reached.- The maximum time that can be set is 99 minutes.

Keep thebutton pressed until '00' appears on the display.You can now set the correct frying time.4 When the preset time has elapsed you will hear an audible signal.After 20 seconds theaudible signal will be repeated.You can stop the audible signal by pressing the timer button.After frying1 Lift the handle to raise the basket to its highest position, i.e. the draining position (fig. 14).2 Open the lid.Beware of the hot steam and possible spattering of the oil.3 Carefully remove the basket from the fryer.If necessary, shake the basket over the fryer to remove excess oil or fat. Put the fried food in a bowlor colander containing grease-absorbing paper, e.g. kitchen paper.4 Switch the fryer off by means of the on/off switch (fig. 15).The power-on light in the on/off switch goes out.5 Unplug the appliance after use.BBIf you do not use the fryer regularly, we advise you to remove the oil or liquid fat and to store it inwell-closed containers, preferably in the refrigerator or in a cool place. Fill the containers by pouringthe oil or fat through a fine sieve to remove food particles. Remove the frying basket before emptyingthe inner bowl.If the fryer contains solid fat, let the fat solidify in the fryer and store the fryer with the fat still in it(see chapter 'Preparing for use', section 'Oil and fat').CleaningWait until the oil or fat has cooled down sufficiently.Do not use any abrasive (liquid) cleaning agents or materials (e.g. scouring pads) to clean theappliance.1 Remove the lid (fig. 16).2 Remove the basket from the fryer.3 Remove the control panel with the heating element and put it in a safe and dry place (fig. 17).4 Lift the inner bowl out of the appliance (fig. 18).5 Remove the oil or fat and dispose of it, if necessary (fig. 19).6 Dry all parts thoroughly after cleaning.Cleaning the permanent anti-grease filterThis appliance is equipped with a permanent filter.To guarantee optimal functioning, the metal filtershould be cleaned regularly. Clean the lid of the fryer in hot water with some washing-up liquid or in the dishwasherevery time you have used the appliance.
10ENGLISHFor thorough cleaning:1 Undo the screws on the inside of the lid (fig. 20).2 Remove the filter and clean it in hot water with some washing-up liquid. Let the filter drythoroughly before you put it back into the lid and before you start using the appliance again.3 Put the filter back into the lid and redo the screws on the inside of the lid.Changing oil or fatBecause oil and fat lose their favourable properties rather quickly, you should change the oil or fatregularly.To do so, follow the instructions below.If you mainly use the fryer to prepare French fries and if you sieve the oil or fat after each use, youcan re-use the oil or fat 10 to 12 times before it needs to be changed. If you use the fryer toprepare food that is rich in proteins (such as meat or fish), you should change the oil or fat moreoften. Never use the same oil or fat longer than 6 months and always follow the instructions on thepackage.Never add fresh oil or fat to used oil or fat.Never mix different types of oil or fat.Always change the oil or fat if it starts foaming when it is heated, if it has a strong smell ortaste or if it turns dark and/or syrupy.Disposing of used oil or fatPour used oil or liquid fat back into its original (resealable) plastic bottle.You can dispose of used fatby letting it solidify in the fryer (without the basket in it) and subsequently scooping it out of thefryer by means of a spatula and wrapping it in a newspaper. If applicable, you can put the bottle ornewspaper in the bin for non-compostable waste (not in the compostable waste bin) or dispose ofit in accordance with the regulations in your country.Storage1 Put all parts back onto/into the fryer and close the lid.2 Wind up the cord, put it in the cord storage compartment and insert the plug into the plugfixing facility (fig. 21).3 Lift the fryer by its handles.Frying tipsFor an overview of preparation times and temperature settings, see the tables at the end of theseinstructions for use.Home-made French friesYou will make the tastiest and crispiest French fries in the following way:1 Use firm potatoes and cut them into sticks. Rinse the sticks with cold water.This will prevent them from sticking to each other during frying.BDry the sticks thoroughly.2 Fry the French fries twice: the first time for 4-6 minutes at a temperature of 160cC, thesecond time for 5-8 minutes at a temperature of 175cC.
ENGLISH 113 Put the home-made French fries in a bowl and shake them. Let the fries cool down beforefrying them for the second time.Frozen foodFrozen fries have already been precooked, so you will only have to fry them once in accordancewith the instructions on the package.Food from the freezer (-16 to -18cC) will cause the oil or fat to cool down considerably when it isimmersed in it. Because the food does not sear right away, it may also absorb too much oil or fat.Take the following measures to prevent this:- Preferably allow frozen food to defrost at room temperature before frying, unless statedotherwise on the package of the food to be fried.- Carefully shake off as much ice and water as possible and dab the food to be fried until it isproperly dry.- Do not fry very large quantities at one time (consult the relevant table in these instructions foruse).- Select the frying temperature mentioned in the relevant table at the end of these instructionsfor use or on the package of the food to be fried. If there are no instructions, select atemperature of 190cC.- Lower the food into the oil or fat very gently, since frozen food may cause the hot oil or fat tostart bubbling violently.Getting rid of unwanted flavoursCertain types of food, particularly fish, can give the oil or fat an unpleasant flavour.To neutralise thetaste of the oil or fat:1 Heat the oil or fat to a temperature of 160cC.2 Put two thin slices of bread or a few sprigs of parsley in the oil.3 Wait until no more bubbles appear and then scoop the bread or the parsley out of the fryerwith a spatula.The oil or fat will now have a neutral taste again.Environment Do not throw the appliance away with the normal household waste at the end of its life, buthand it in at an official collection point for recycling. By doing this you will help to preservethe environment (fig. 22).Remove the battery of the timer (HD6144 only) before you discard the appliance.1 Use a small flat-blade screwdriver to remove the timer panel (fig. 23).2 Remove the battery.
2 Switch the fryer on by means of the on/off switch (fig.7). The power-on light in the on/off switch and the temperature light go on. 3 Set the temperature control to the required temperature (160-190cC) (fig.8). - For information about which temperature to select,check the package of the food to be fried
