Use & Info
Can I prepare foods other than fried dishes with my PowerXL™ Vortex Air Fryer?
You can prepare a variety of dishes, including steaks, chops, burgers, and baked goods. See the PowerXL™ Vortex Air Fryer Recipe Guide.
Is the PowerXL™ Vortex Air Fryer good for making or reheating soups and sauces?
Never cook or reheat liquids in the Unit.
Is it possible to shut off the Unit at any time?
Press the Power Button once or remove the Basket.
What do I do if the Unit shuts off while cooking?
As a safety feature, the PowerXL™ Vortex Air Fryer has an Auto Shut-Off device that prevents damage from overheating. Remove the Basket and set it on a heat-resistant surface. Allow the Unit to cool down. Remove the Power Cable from the outlet. Once cool, plug the Power Cable back into the socket. Restart by pressing the Power Button.
Does the Unit need time to heat up?
If you are cooking from a cold start, add 3 mins. to the cooking time to compensate.
Can I check the food during the cooking process?
You can remove the Basket at any time while cooking is in progress. During this time, you can shake the contents in the Basket if needed to ensure even cooking.
Is the PowerXL™ Vortex Air Fryer dishwasher safe?
Only the Fry Tray is dishwasher safe. The Unit itself, which contains the heating coil and electronics, should never be submerged in liquid of any kind or cleaned with anything more than a warm, moist cloth or nonabrasive sponge with a small amount of mild detergent.
What happens if the Unit still does not work after I have tried all the troubleshooting suggestions?
Never attempt a home repair. Contact customer service and follow the procedures set forth by the guarantee. Failure to do so could render your guarantee null and void.
Should I place the unit on the stovetop?
Do not place your appliance on a cooktop, even if the cooktop is cool because you could accidentally turn the cooktop on, causing a fire, and damaging the appliance, your cooktop, and your home.
Before using your new appliance on any countertop surface, check with your countertop manufacturer or installer for recommendations about using appliances on your surfaces. Some manufacturers and installers may recommend protecting your surface by placing a hot pad or trivet under the appliance for heat protection. Your manufacturer or installer may recommend that hot pans, pots, or electrical appliances should not be used directly on top of the countertop. If you are unsure, place a trivet or hot pad under the appliance before using it.
Can the grill plate be used without the fry tray?
Yes, the grill plate can be used with or without the fry tray. We recommend using the fry tray in conjunction with the grill plate as the food will be closer to the heat source. Use the grill plate to grill meat, vegetables or any food that may benefit from cooking on a grill.
Will the appliance work with 220 voltage or convertor?
“The appliance will not work with a 220-volt power supply and should not be used with a converter. Using with a converter could damage the appliance, the converter, and the outlet. Using a converter will invalidate the guarantee and any protection plan policy.”
