LP GAS CYLINDER
• Use only a 20 pound LP Gas Cylinder or smaller with a protective
• LP (propane) gas is colorless, tasteless, heavier than air, and is both flammable and explosive.
Combustion of propane consumes oxygen and produces carbon monoxide, a poisonous gas.
Therefore, never operate an outdoor cooker appliance inside a building or confined area where
ventilation may be restricted. Make sure the LP cylinder and the cooker are placed in an open
area. DO NOT obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air.
• Never use a gas cylinder if it shows signs of dents, gouges, bulges, fire damage, erosion, leakage,
excessive rust, or other forms of visible external damage. The cylinder may be hazardous and
should be checked by a qualified liquid propane supplier.
• Never attach a gas cylinder, move or alter fittings while cooker is hot or in operation.
• Do not attempt to disconnect the regulator hose assembly while cooker is in operation.
• When cooker use is complete, always turn the LP cylinder valve OFF first, then turn the regulator
control valve OFF. Turning the cylinder OFF first allows remaining gas to flow out of the regulator
hose assembly before the regulator control valve is turned OFF.
• DO NOT use external electrical sources with this appliance.
• Storage of this appliance indoors is permissible only if the cylinder is disconnected and removed
from the appliance and left outdoors. Cylinders must be stored outdoors out of the reach of children
and must not be stored in a building, garage or any other enclosed area.

• This is an ATTENDED appliance, DO NOT leave this appliance unattended while heating oil,
grease or water, cooking food or when hot after use (oil, grease or water above 115˚F: 45˚C).
Heated liquid can remain at scalding temperatures long after cooking has ended.
• When cooking with oil/grease, the thermometer provided must be used to monitor temperature.
Oil/grease heated above 400˚F (200˚C) will ignite and catch fire causing property damage,
personal injury or death.
• Even when burner is set at a low flame, never leave the fryer unattended. Cooking oil/grease
will heat up quickly and ignite at 550˚F to 700˚F (287˚C to 371˚C).
