3 Golden Rules to Fryer Success

With any piece of equipment there is always a list of do’s and don’ts to keep the equipment in good working order. Do change the oil in your car every 3,000 miles, don’t press the gas and brake pedal at the same time. Do wash your blender after every use, don’t operate without the cover securely placed. Similarly for AutoFry, we have a short list, our golden rules to success, and today we’re going to share them with you. Just three easy principals that will lead to long machine life, great tasting food and less chance of machine breakdown. Of course, there are more than just three principals to managing any machine, and we highly encourage you to read through your owner’s manual before operating and refer to our troubleshooting guide should you need additional assistance.

Service 101: Programming AutoFry Presets

One of my favorite things about our AutoFry, ventless deep fryer, is that it is so simple to use. Seriously if you can operate a microwave you can operate AutoFry. Just like the old infomercial, you can set it and forget it, and that is the real beauty of AutoFry, that you don’t need a fry cook to perfectly fry food. You just need the fully automated, fully ventless AutoFry. One of the features that makes AutoFry so simple and easy to use is that you can program it with a series of presets. This means instead of manually entering in a cook time, you just choose the preset and hit start – AutoFry will do the rest. Today we’re going to walk you through the process of programming AutoFry presets, you can either follow the instructions below, or watch our short video that walks you through the process.
