Summary: Love our little air cooker! Kids can make their own frozen French fries, cheese sticks etc. Great for small portion snacks. Frozen puff pastry cooks up fluffy. I wish the racks and other add -ons came with it. It's not really non-stick like they say. Air-fry in it anything with any grease or natural fats and the mesh and sides of the basket food does stick and can get a filmy build up that is hard to come off even with Bon Amie cleaner.
Pros: fast, easy to use, attractive design, convection air
Cons: price, accesories expensive, not really non-stick, basket hard to clean well, only for small portions
Summary: This does what it says it will do. And does it VERY well. I've made both homemade and frozen fries - both were excellent. Finally went for it and did fried chicken: boneless, skinless thighs, no less. The family RAVED!!! It's so wonderful to have fried foods again - and less fat than if we grilled them!!
Summary: I like how the fryer cooks, however, the recipe book that came with it is VERY small and limited so using the fryer is more trial and error than "easy as pie". The advertisement leads you to believe NO oil is necessary to "fry", that also is not true, however, the amount of oil you use is minimal. For the steep price I expected more detailed user information. I found out foods tend to stick to the basket so I now use a product like Pam to keep this to a minimum.
Pros: cooks oven ready food pretty good
Cons: poor instructions with product, fresh items stick to basket, timer must run out you can't canel it, the high price
Summary: We expected an "air" fryer meaning we weren't looking for a replacement to conventional fryers. So far we like what we see from the air fryer and we are continuing to experiment with this. Even though it's an air fryer, brush of olive/grape seed oil enhances the flavor quite a bit.
Summary: I bought this for my daughter for Christmas. Lots of reviews said you had to get used to getting the basket back in; that it just needed practice! My daughter tried that but it got harder each time. She gave up and took it back. She had it exchanged with no bother and now she loves it. The only thing she doesn't like is when you take the basket out to shake it you have to pull the draw right out to get the basket out but she can live with that.
Summary: Allthough there was a nasty smell from the fryer when I first used, it is ok now. I have used only for potatoes and have been pleased with all the results so far. Product comes with a small recipe booklet, but if you need the manual you need to download online.
