THERMOMETER & OIL TEMPERATURE
• This gas appliance does not have automatic ther
mostat controls so must be attended and
monitored at all times during use.
• When cooking with oil or grease, a thermometer MUST be used for reasonable temperature
reading. Follow instructions for proper testing, installation and use of a thermometer on pages
20 -21 in this manual.
• Test your thermometer before each use. If your thermometer does not function properly, a replacement
thermometer must be obtained before frying with this cooker.
• Carefully monitor the temperature of cooking oil with your thermometer and regulate temperature
so it does not reach the "Fire Hazard" zone on your thermometer. If necessary, turn the gas OFF
to the cooker to allow the oil to cool.
Oil ignites at varying temperatures depending on type of oil used, altitude, ambient temperature and
wind. Check your thermometer every 3 minutes to ensure cooking oil does not exceed 400˚F (200˚C).
• Do not allow oil or grease to exceed 400˚F (200˚C). Oil or grease will ignite and catch fire at
550˚F to 700˚F (287˚C to 371˚C). If cooking oil or grease reaches 400˚F (200˚C),
turn burner OFF. Wait for the cooking oil or grease temperature to decrease to less than
350˚F (117˚C) before relighting burner.
• Regardless of thermometer reading, if the oil/grease starts to smoke, turn OFF fuel supply to the
burner and STOP COOKING IMMEDIATELY. This indicates the thermometer is not working properly.
Discard the thermometer and call 1-800-864-6194 M-F 8am - 5pm CST for assistance.
