Using Your Air Fryer

This is an air fryer that works on hot air.

• Do not fill the pan with oil, frying fat, or any other liquid.

• Do not put anything on top of the appliance

Note: Do not place the appliance against a wall

or against other appliances. It is important to

leave at least 4 inches of free space on the back

and sides,

and 4 inches of free space above the appliance

to allow for proper ventilation.

1. Place the appliance on a stable, horizontal,

heat-resistant, and leveled surface.

2. Place the ingredients in the pando not overload. Spray with cooking oil for

a crispier finish. Slide the

pan into the air fryer.

3. Plug the Air Fryer into

an electrical wall outlet.

4. To turn on the appliance tap

the power icon.

5. To select a preset, tap the

menu icon, until desired food

icon appears.

The temperature and time

will appear on the screen.

6. To set the temperature and

time manually or to adjust the

preset temperature or time, tap

the +/- icons. Tap Temp/Time

to alternate between setting

temperature and time.

7. To begin the air frying

process tap the power icon.

8. Some recipes or ingredients call for shaking the ingredients halfway through

the preparation time (see ‘Settings Chart’ on page 13).

To shake the ingredients, pull the pan out of the appliance by the handle

and shake it. Then slide the pan back into the air fryer to resume cooking.

Note: After sliding the pan out of the appliance, the display unit will go

into sleep mode, when you return the pan to the appliance, your time

and temperature settings will automatically resume. There is no need

to reset your settings or press start.

9. When your selected cooking time has elapsed the timer bell ring. Pull the

pan out of the appliance and place it on a heat-resistant surface. If you

would like a little more cooking time on the food, simply slide the pan back

into the appliance and set the timer for a few extra minutes.

10. When your food is ready empty the pan

into a bowl or onto a plate using

a pair of tongs; the food and pan will be hot!

NOTE: To avoid scratching the nonstick

surface do not use sharp or metal utensils.

11. When a batch of ingredients is ready, the

air fryer is instantly ready for preparing

another batch. No preheating is neccesary.

Note: To pause the air fryer, tap the power/pause icon.

Tap it again to resume.

To turn off the air fryer, press and hold the power icon. The air fryer

may cool down for 20 seconds before shutting off.


• Smaller ingredients usually require a slightly shorter preparation time

than larger ingredients.

• Shaking smaller ingredients halfway through the preparation time

optimizes the end result and can help prevent unevenly fried ingredients.

• Add 1 Tablespoon of oil to fresh potatoes for a crispy result. Fry your

ingredients in the air fryer within a few minutes after you add the oil.

• Do not prepare extremely greasy ingredients such as sausages in the air


• Snacks that can be prepared in an oven can also be prepared in the air fryer.

• Use pre-made dough to prepare filled snacks quickly and easily. Pre-made

dough also requires a shorter preparation time than home-made dough.

• Place a baking tin or oven dish in the air fryer pan if you want to bake a cake

or quiche or if you want to fry fragile or filled ingredients.

Note: Because the rapid hot air technology instantly reheats the air inside the

appliance, pulling the pan out of the appliance during use, for a short amount

of time, will not effect the process.

Tip: If you set the timer to half the preparation time, your timer will ring

when you have to shake the ingredients. However, this means that you have

to set the timer again to the remaining preparation time after shaking.

(see ‘Settings Chart’ on page 13).

Tip: If you set the timer to full preparation time, there is no timer bell during

cooking. Before finishing, you can pull out the pan at any time to check the

ingredients cooking condition. The power will shut down automatically

and, will only resume after you slide the pan back into the appliance (timer

always counts down in this situation).

• Do not turn the pan upside down, as any excess oil that has collected on

the bottom of the pan will leak onto the ingredients.

• Do not touch the pan, crisper, rack and skewers after use. Depending on

the type of the ingredients in the air fryer, steam may escape from the pan.

How do I preheat my air fryer?

The air fryer will automatically preheat when you first use it. The display will

change to the time needed until the appliance is ready for use after preheating.

On subsequent uses, if you have not used your air fryer for a while, we recommend that you manually preheat it.

After cooking is complete, how do I remove my food?

When your food is finished cooking, simply remove it from the basket using oven mitts or kitchen towels to protect yourself from burns. Your food will be hot!

How do I use the accessories?

The accessories are designed to give you additional ways to make your foods. Below are some tips for using the accessories. Using them will allow you to prepare different types of foods and snacks with little effort. Simply follow these three easy steps: 1. Place the accessory in the basket/pan as directed in these recipes; 2. Slide the accessory into the appliance; 3. Place your bagged or boxed food on top of or inside of that accessory and air fry as directed in that recipe.

How do I know when my air fryer is preheated?

When you first use your air fryer, it will preheat automatically. If you haven’t used your appliance for a while, or want to preheat it before preparing a quick snack, here’s how: 1. Press the “power/preheat” button on the front of your air fryer

2. The display will display “Preheat in progress…” then “Preheat finished!”

3. Your air fryer is now ready for use. Do not attempt to

start the appliance without preheating.

How do I know when my air fryer is ready for using?

The air fryer will beep and display “Ready for use”. If you want to stop the air fryer, simply press “power/pause”. The display will automatically resume after a few seconds.

How do I clean my air fryer?

It’s easy to clean your air fryer because there are no removable parts that make up the basket, pan, rack and strap. To clean, use a damp cloth or sponge made of dishwasher-safe materials such as microfiber, terry cloth or nylon.

How do I use my Gourmia air fryer?

1. Place the basket in the air fryer.

2. Do not fill the basket more than half full.

3. To adjust airflow, turn the vent at the back of your air fryer to any desired position (there are 4 options). NOTE: If you don’t have an airflow problem, leave the vent in its highest position during use.

4. Select power level and set time by pressing function buttons and enter button as indicated in Settings chart on page 13 and timer chart on page 16 respectively (how to set timer is described on page 15). Note: Timer may vary according to food type and size as well as personal preference (see below).

5. Place food in the basket.

6. Place the air fryer pan in the air fryer to allow heated air to circulate.

7. Use convection function if you want to cook food more quickly by circulating heated air around ingredients (see ‘Convection cooking’ on page 6). Note: The convection function can also be used when using accessories, see instructions for using accessories on page 14.

8. Press power/preheat button and set time as indicated in ‘Settings chart’ on page 13, or follow instructions for setting timer on page 15 for individual recipes (timer chart is given on page 16).

9. Close the lid and lock it by sliding latch down.

10. Set timer to 30 minutes as indicated in ‘Settings chart’ on page 13.

11. When time has elapsed, press power/preheat button to assist start button until you hear a noise and see the display turn off indicating that selected button was pressed.

12. Remove pan from air fryer, if desired, and wipe suction cup or grate clean with a damp sponge or cloth made of dishwasher-safe materials such as microfiber, terry cloth or nylon moistened with water only (never use alcohol or other cleaners!).

13. Slide the pan back into appliance. See ‘When t’s time to clean’ below.

14. After using the accessories, first slide out pan then remove accessory (see page 14 for details).

15. Press power/preheat button to start the appliance (see page 13 for details).

16. When you are done, press power/pause button to deactivate the air fryer and stop cooking if your food is not ready yet (see page 13 for details).

17. Carry the air fryer by two hands under bottom cover with vent end facing down so no oil spills from vents and will not damage appliances or surfaces.

18. Remove the basket and close appliance.

19. Clean the basket and pan used for use with accessories before storing or bringing them back to appliance for next use.

20. Air fryer may be left on when appliances are not in use, but it is recommended that you keep it in a dry location (e.g., oven on low setting or over a sink). Make sure to remove all food from the air fryer before leaving your house if this is not possible, as oil stored in the appliance may cause a fire if someone should spark or make contact with it.

Can I preheat an empty air fryer?

Preheating the air fryer is an important step in the cooking process. Pressing the power/preheat button will turn your air fryer on and preheat it at a medium level for 10 minutes. When you are ready to cook, press power/preheat button again to turn off the appliance. This type of timing allows you to prepare and place ingredients in your basket before preheating begins.

Does it matter if there is space between the accessory and food?

The amount of space matters depending on what you are cooking because certain ingredients require more room than others (see ‘settings chart’ on page 13 for details).

How often should I grease the accessory?

Use a very small amount of vegetable oil on the accessory (1 teaspoon or less) to avoid using too much or having the food stick. See page 14 for details on using accessories.

What if I accidentally start the appliance without putting my food in the basket?

When you press power/start and then enter, it will activate an audible tone and vibration in both vents that confirm your selection and shut off your device. Once you have started cooking and you put a pan of food inside, you will hear an audible tone and vibration in both vents that confirm that your food is in place.

Are you supposed to preheat an air fryer?

Yes. Preheating the air fryer is an important step in the cooking process. If you place hot food in a cold air fryer, the temperature of your food will drop too quickly and it may not cook properly or evenly. By preheating your air fryer to a medium level for 10 minutes and letting it cool down before using, you prevent this from happening.

What is convection?

Convection refers to circulating hot air around ingredients to cook them more quickly by moving heated air around them (convecting). You can use this function when preparing your main dish, or when cooking any pan accessories.
