Using Your Appliance.Preparing For Use:

  1. Place the appliance on a stable, horizontal, and even surface. Do not place the appliance onto a non-heat-resistant surface.
  2. Do not fill the drawer with oil or any other liquid.
  3. Do not put anything on top of the appliance, as this will disrupt the airflow and the hot air frying will be affected as a result.

Automatic Switch Off:The Tower Air Fryer has a built-in timer, which will automatically shut down the air fryer when the timer reaches zero.You can manually switch off the air fryer by turning the timer dial anti-clockwise to zero.The air fryer will then automatically switch off within 20 seconds.

Air Fryer Drawer Safety Switch:For your safety, this air fryer contains a safety switch in the drawer, designed to keep it from accidentally turning on whenever the drawer is not properly situated inside the appliance or the timer is not set. Before using your air fryer, please ensure that the drawer is fully closed and that the cooking timer has been set.

Removing the Drawer:The drawer can be removed fully from the air fryer. Pull on the handle to slide the drawer out of the air fryer.Note: If the drawer is removed from the main body of the fryer when in operation, the unit will automatically stop working within 5 seconds of this occurring.

Air Frying:

  1. Connect the mains plug into an earthed wall socket.
  2. Carefully pull the drawer out of the air fryer.
  3. Put the food in the drawer.
  4. Slide the drawer back into the air fryer making sure to carefully align with the guides in the body of the fryer.CAUTION: Do not touch the drawer immediately after use, as it gets very hot. Allow it plenty of time to cool. Only hold the drawer by the handle.
  5. Determine the required cooking time for your desired food (refer to the ‘Settings’ section below).
  6. To switch on the appliance, turn the timer dial to the required cooking time. The fan will start working and both pilot lights on the body of the fryer will come on to show the unit is in operation.
  7. Turn the temperature control dial to the required temperature. Refer to the ‘Settings’ section in this chapter to learn how to determine the right temperature. Add 2 minutes to the cooking time when the appliance is cold.Note: If you wish, you can also let the appliance preheat without any food inside. In this case, turn the timer dial to more than 2 minutes and wait until the heating-up light goes out. Then, add food to the drawer and turn the timer dial to the required cooking time.
  8. The timer starts counting down the set cooking time.Note: During the air frying process, the working lights will turn on and off from time to time. This indicates that the heating element is being switched on and off to maintain the set temperature.Note: Excess oil from the food is collected on the bottom of the drawer.
  9. Some food requires shaking halfway through the cooking time (refer to the settings table). To shake the food, pull the drawer out of the appliance by the handle and shake it. Then slide the drawer back into the fryer.Tip: Set the timer to half the cooking time. When the timer bell sounds, shake the food.Then, set the timer again to the remaining cooking time and resume frying.
  10. When you hear the timer bell, the set cooking time has elapsed. Pull the drawer out of the appliance and place it on a suitable work surface.
  11. Check if the food is ready. If the food is not ready yet, simply slide the drawer back into the appliance and set the timer to a few extra minutes.
  12. To remove food (e.g. fries), pull the drawer out of the air fryer and empty your food onto a plate. Do not turn the drawer upside down, as any excess oil that has collected may drip onto the food. Caution: The inside of the drawer and food will be very hot.Depending on the type of food in the fryer, steam may escape upon opening so care is needed.Tip: To remove large or fragile food, lift the food out of the drawer with a pair of tongs
  13. The air fryer is instantly ready to create another delicious meal.Temperature Selection:To manually select the correct temperature for each dish, turn the temperature dial. Turn this dial clockwise to increase the temperature or counter-clockwise to decrease it.

Settings:The table on the next page will help you select the basic settings for a variety of common foods.Note: Keep in mind that these settings are indications. As foods differ in origin, size, shape, and brand, we cannot guarantee the best settings for your food. Because the Rapid  Air technology instantly reheats the air inside the appliance, pulling the drawer briefly out of the appliance during hot air frying barely disturbs the process.


  • The cooking time will depend on the size of your food. Smaller sizes may require a shorter cooking time.
  • Shaking smaller food halfway during the cooking time optimizes the end result and can help prevent unevenly fried food.
  • Add some oil to fresh potatoes for a crispy result. Fry your food in the air fryer within a few minutes after you added the oil.
  • Be cautious of using extremely greasy food such as sausages in the air fryer.
  • Snacks that can be prepared in an oven can also be prepared in the air fryer
  •  The optimal amount for preparing crispy fries is 500 grams.
  • Use the pre-made dough to prepare filled snacks quickly and easily. The pre-made dough also requires a shorter cooking time than homemade dough.
  • Place a baking tin or oven dish in the air fryer drawer if you want to bake a cake or quiche, or if you want to fry fragile food or filled food.
  • You can also use the air fryer to reheat food. To reheat food, set the temperature to 150°C for up to 10 minutes.

What is an Air Fryer?

An Air Fryer is a healthier way to cook food. It uses hot air circulation to cook food quickly and evenly

How does it work?

The Air Fryer uses hot air circulation to cook food quickly and evenly. The circulating hot air cooks the food from all sides and seals in the flavour.

Is an Air Fryer healthy?

Yes, it is healthier than deep frying because it cooks with only a small amount of oil. It also cooks much faster than conventional ovens so you can prepare a meal in less time.

Can I use an Air Fryer to fry foods?

No, an Air Fryer only cooks with circulating hot air so you cannot fry foods in it. You can bake, roast, grill or even make desserts with your Air Fryer.

How do I clean my Air Fryer?

You can wipe the outside with a damp cloth but do not immerse the unit in water or put it in the dishwasher.

Can I use metal utensils in my Air Fryer?

No, you should only use plastic or wooden utensils when cooking with your unit. Metal utensils could damage the non-stick coating on the basket and cooking plate.

I never got a manual any chance i can get one sent? Im dieing to use it lol

There should be manuals online. Check their website and if not, give them a call or email. I’m sure they will work to get you one.

Is there a guarantee with this?


Can i use this instead of a microwave?

Yes your Air Fryer is alot better to use than your microwave. it cooks your food better.

what size is it?

About 12 inches high and approx 8inches wide. Big enough to roast a chicken.

What is the voltage and frequency for it?

The label states the following which I assume is for general UK use on a main, fryer has a 3pin plug.

Does the food come out crispy if you cook a baked potato for example’s

Yes no problem. Keep checking the potato and remove it when it looks right

What are the dimensions of the air fryer, without the packaging? Trying to work out where ir would fit in the kitchen.

It’s about 8-9 inches (22-25cms) square and about a foot high (30cms) it has a slightly rounded front. We purchased it because it wasn’t too wide and deep and also didn’t churn the food up. Our kitchen isn’t huge. Hope that this helps.
