My husband bought me this Air Fryer for mother's day this year and I absolutely loved it. I used it all the time and even told friends and family about it and encouraged them to purchase one.... Then, two nights ago, it came on by itself in the middle of the night while we were sleeping and got so hot that it melted the plastic on the back of the unit by the vent. We were lucky in that it set off the smoke detectors in the house and we were able to remove the basket and unplug it before it caught anything on fire!! If you are going to buy this product (or already have it), I would highly recommend that you UNPLUG it when not in use and keep it in an area away from anything else that is flammable when in use. I am planning to buy another air fryer, but will definitely look for a brand that at least carries a warranty for more than 60 days!!
The oven was dead on arrival and the manufacturer / seller will not provide a return shipping prepaid label nor will they send another oven before receiving the DOA ( dead on arrival ) unit even with my credit card as a guarantee I will return the DOA Power Air Fryer Oven. All expenses, due to receiving a DOA unit, will be at my expense. The consumer probably has a 50-50 chance of experiencing problems such as mine and if that possibility causes one to be angry, they should stay clear of the Power Air Fryer Oven.

I have precious little counter space in my little kitchen, but this has a permanent home! I absolutely adore this thing. Best thing I've gotten since I got the Ninja 3 in 1 cooker. Those are the two appliances that have a home on my counter. Chicken wings in the fryer are awesome. You can also make some awesome brats or dogs in it and get a nice crispy crunch to the skins. I've done a few roasted veggies that are awesome. The quiche I made got a little over done but was terrific. I had bought the NuWave from QVC and absolutely hated that thing. I sold it before my convenient 5 pay option was over. It was so cumbersome and awkward to use in my small kitchen. The clean up on this one is so easy. you basically just rinse it out and dry it off. Attaching a picture of some wings I did today with some homemade blue cheese.
Overall, this air fryer is an excellent pick for anyone looking to get a quality analog appliance that does a fine cooking job.  We do find it to be slightly expensive considering the limited accessories that come with the unit.  However; if you’re happy to fork over the cost then we highly recommend this little cooker.  One more thing…it’s endorsed by Gordan Ramsay.

We had the other one and it worked great, gave it to me daughter after we got this one. Wish we had it back : this is good tor wings and fries but you try and use the skewers they are to short to reach on both sides, as far as the rotisserie part you have to use baby capons, not a chicken. ( joke ). Friends got the Nuwave air oven and its twice the unit ours is. Guess I ll just give this to someone else and get one of them. To bad I m out all that money! So don't waste your money.
Preheat oven to 415 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with nonstick parchment paper. Repeat directions for making sauce and tossing/coating cauliflower. Spread cauliflower evenly on baking sheet. Roast for 40 minutes, turning halfway through, or until cauliflower is tender with dark golden brown edges. Storage directions are the same as above. To reheat, add to a 400 degrees oven for 5 minutes, or until warmed through.
This wasn’t the cheapest of appliances (close to $200 USD), which is why it took me 2 years to finally bite the bullet. There are several options on Amazon though, but the Philips and T-Fal models seem to be the most popular. However, with as much as I’ve already used it and the fact that we’ll be going through a kitchen remodel soon where I won’t have an oven, I think I will definitely get my money’s worth.
Then I was told it was on my dime to return it - NOT HAPPY! I called two more times to complain that they should pay for the return shipping because it was false advertising. They refused, so I mailed both packages back at MY COST of $51. I was fuming when I got home and called again for reimbursement, THEN they offered to send a return label. I said "can't you read? I just paid $50 to return it." They gave me another number to call and I got nowhere again trying to be reimbursed for shipping.
We wanted to see if our finalists could cook our favorite fried foods: french fries (fresh and frozen), chicken strips, and healthier options like zucchini and broccoli. In addition to being commonly fried fare, these foods allowed us to see how the air fryers handled different textures, densities, and tastes. Since french fries are supposed to be the easiest food for an air fryer to handle, we tested fresh and frozen fries across all models, seeing which ones got closest to that deep-fried crunch. Three of our air fryers couldn't even give us decent french fries, so we knocked them out of testing. We took the four top performers through additional testing to see which could cook the crispiest chicken strips (two of our models) and the juiciest grilled veggies (none of the models).
All of the air fryers we tested have a pan and basket with a nonstick coating; you should avoid using metal cooking utensils or abrasive sponges, which could damage the surface. Though most manufacturers say you can wash the pan and basket in a dishwasher, we don’t recommend it. Washing the pieces by hand using hot water and dish soap will help the nonstick coating last longer.
The only accurate way to determine any recipe’s SmartPoints® value is to plug the ingredients into the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers website which is how I calculate everything. The SmartPoints® calculator isn’t meant for recipes and will often give you the wrong points (usually higher) because it’s counting the fruits and vegetables. So if you see a recipe with a SmartPoints® value that’s different from what the calculator tells you, that is why.
Deep fryers require diligent maintenance. A deep fryer remains too hot to handle for several hours after use. As such, it’s a challenge to perform important tasks like oil filtering. Working with large amounts of animal-based fat is also a messy and thankless job for many cooks. There is also the problem of having a large container of scalding hot oil within reach of small children.

Even if you don’t have a huge deep frying machine, and you’re just using a pot of oil and a strainer, there’s still constantly the potential for issues. After all, you have a huge vat of oil just sitting on the stove. What happens if you accidentally drop in food from too high, and splatter oil on yourself? Or What happens if you spill oil on the burner? What happens if you knock something else into the oil? An air fryer lets you get the high heat and intense crispiness of a deep fryer, but it’s oil free, removing many of the dangers.
If you plan to buy this tool now, do not waste your time – because its price is quite affordable, while the quality is really high. But let us talk about the product first! Philips air fryer exists in the black and white color – you can decide what fits better to your kitchen interior. Were you aware of the fact that Gordon Ramsey teams up with this particular model to prove that making healthy and delicious food is possible? When you buy this tool, you get the recipe book with 150 amazing recipes for you.

Thanks to Philips’ patented Starfish technology, all food is exposed to constant, circulating heat allowing you to cook your favorite foods with a tablespoon or less of oil. The result is evenly fried food – with no turning needed - even when food is piled up. In addition to the heated air flow, powerful direct heat from above quickly crisps the food for delicious, golden-brown results while draining excess fat.

One of the secrets to getting the best results from your air fryer is to coat foods with a dry mixture that cooks up nice and crispy. Here, we’ve used omega-3 rich flaxseeds to add a super-food style crunch to French toast. Thanks to this delicious recipe, you can feel great about treating your kids to these on Saturday morning (they’ll never guess they’re eating a fiber-rich and heart-healthy breakfast!).

These delights are lighter than traditional churros—almost like éclairs—coming out of the air fryer fluffy and delicious. The cinnamon-sugar mixture creates a thin crust on the outside, delivering that classic churro crunch. You'll want to enjoy these churros immediately, as they're best fresh, but you can save any extra chocolate sauce (try drizzling it over frozen yogurt).
While all three specimens were reminiscent of special treats mom would make for my sister and me when we were kids and she didn't want to cook, they were in no way as good as real French fries. If a perfect paper cone full of Belgian fries eaten on a Brussels sidewalk is a 10 and excellent fries at your favorite bar are a seven, then the oven fries were a two, the convection oven version was a two point five and the air fryer a three. With a bit of tweaking, like preheating the sheet pan for the oven version, I guessed I could bring each of those home-cooked numbers up a point, but none of the fries I'd made were terribly compelling.

“I can’t believe how convenient this appliance is to use. I just pull out the basket, throw in some food, then set the temperature and timer according to the directions printed on the top of the unit. As long as I remember to shake the basket halfway through the cooking time, I get consistently great results. French fries don’t have that super-crispy fried taste, but they’re pretty darn good. We get the Ore-Ida Simply Olive Oil and Sea Salt fries, and they come out with a taste and texture very similar to what you’d get at Wendy’s. But these have got to be much healthier, as you’re adding no fat in the cooking process! … My teen is already asking if he can take one with him to college!”
After seeing the wild response to our Air Fryer video — and learning Pinterest saves for Air Fryer recipes were up 1,809 percent this year— we realized we needed to test the limits of this device, with a roundup of the most incredible things you can make in one. From mains to sides to desserts and snacks — they've got all the crisp, and none of the oil. Live your healthiest life, because it now includes fried food.

However, one of the most common complaints we’ve encountered among consumers in general is that, if you’re planning on using an air fryer to completely replace a traditional deep fryer for more robust, freshly-made foods like fried chicken or dumplings—and you’re expecting the exact same taste in all instances—you might be disappointed by their performance.

This air-fryer riff on the Chinese takeout classic saves the day with nearly half the saturated fat of restaurant versions and loads less clean-up than deep frying at home. Air fryer sizes vary (hence the cook time’s wide range); if you have a smaller air fryer, commit to cooking in batches so that there’s plenty of room for the air to circulate and crisp up the chicken.

CR’s take: The As Seen on TV Power AirFryer XL has a 5.3-quart capacity—one of the largest in our ratings—and is easiest to clean, in part because of the basket’s nonstick coating; it rates Excellent in our cleaning tests. The digital controls and preprogrammed settings are a snap to read and use. This model is on the noisy side, about as loud as a typical countertop microwave. That’s not a big drawback if you’re cooking something that takes just a few minutes. But the sound might prove annoying for longer tasks. The Power XL’s warranty is the shortest of the bunch—just 60 days.


“Honestly, I had my doubts. I kept seeing it on TV and decided, Why not, I could always return it. But to my surprise, I can’t imagine life without it! I didn’t expect these results at all! The very first thing I made with them were Buffalo chicken wings. They were so good. Crispy skin, perfectly cooked and much, much healthier than fried wings. I then tried fries, homemade fried chicken, tater tots, spring rolls, bacon, potato chips. The options are endless — and they all turned out perfectly. I even made fried mac-and-cheese bites with some leftover mac and cheese I had. Rolled in flour, then egg and some panko, and they were divine! This is by far one of the best purchases I have ever made.”
Of course you can cook this oil free, but you’ll get a much better result if you lightly spray with a bit of oil. This is the oil sprayer I use. Basically it’s easy to clean and it was highly rated. I have Mistos but I really don’t like them since they are hard to clean and remember any oil residue will get rancid…YUK. One or two quick sprays on both sides is all you’ll need.
If you’ve been fighting the temptation of fried chicken for the sake of your healthy diet, you can finally indulge guilt free. This spicy, crispy chicken emerges from the air fryer with all the flavor and crunch you’ve been craving. For the best flavor, be sure to let the chicken marinate as instructed—if you have the time, go the full 12 hours. The results are worth it. 
In terms of accessories, you get an e-book and physical cookbook with more than 40 recipes.  Perhaps the biggest incentive to give this air fryer a go, is the 2 year warranty which suggests a quality build.  However; we did find it hard to slide the bottom drawer or ‘container’ back in and it required multiple attempts.  In fact, several online reviews have also pointed out this issue and it looks to be a design oversight from the brand.

Although it’s large even by toaster oven standards, it can truly replace your oven. No need for special toaster oven-sized cookware here. And Breville claims it can accommodate a 14-pound turkey. We do have one major quibble with this product. The manual contains no recommendations for what, how much, or how long to cook various foods. This may not be a problem for baking or roasting, but if you’re new to air frying, you’re on your own while getting started. Also keep in mind that all of the parts require handwashing.

As is with MOST As Seen On TV junk, this item is exactly that. I am taking a pretty good guess that 50% of their units are junk even before they leave their factory. Kind of like fall-apart Kmart junk. After unit internal parts fail even before the warranty expires, you have to pack it and return it at YOUR cost. There are absolutely NO phone numbers to call for ANY assistance for purchasing even the light bulb for it, which a majority of the machine needs to be taken apart just to get to it. Parts rust within a few weeks even when hand washed. SquareTrade's extended warranty backed by Allstate Ins. Co. is also just as worthless!
The Power AirFryer XL lets you to enjoy all your favorite fried foods without all the guilt. The 6-in-1 cooking technology lets you fry, bake, steam, saute, grill or roast your food with the power of super-heated air instead of fatty oils. Seven food presets like French Fries, Steak and Baked Goods help take the guessing out of frying. Simply load the food in the basket, select a preset and sit back as the AirFryer XL super-heats your food to give it the savory crunch that makes your fried favorites so delicious.

However, my kitchen just didn’t need another gadget but last week, I was finally convinced. A Nourish student showed off golden egg rolls fried in her airfryer. My husband and I ordered the best fried brussels sprouts from Falasophy in the Fourth Street Market in Santa Ana. And I discovered that Trader Joe’s now sells crinkle cut butternut squash, which clearly were screaming, “Fry me, Jess!”
What an air fryer actually is is a small, super-powerful convection oven. Once I learned the way it operated, I took the plunge and bought one. And you’d be amazed at all the things you can prepare in this. Generally speaking, if you can cook it in your oven, you can cook it in an air fryer. Just remember that space is pretty limited so you can’t do sheet cakes or turkeys or stuff such as that.

There are so many things you can make in an air fryer, in fact, the possibilities are endless. I know my kid’s would love these Air Fryer Chicken Nuggets. And who wouldn’t love a batch of these Air Fryer Spicy Sweet Potato Fries? And who would have thought Air Fryer Roasted Corn would turn out so perfect.  And holy wow these Copycat Taco Bell Air Fryer Crunch Wraps sound over the top. But these Air Fryer Reuben Egg Rolls also sound crazy addictive.

While many of the air fryers we tested had some great features, the NuWave Brio combined the most of those features into one appliance to outshine the competition. The Brio was able to churn out batch after batch of crispy fries and chicken wings during our tests. The final results were almost perfect. There were just a few spots that were a little lighter or darker, depending on the batch, but this air fryer was impressive for its consistently crispy and evenly cooked results overall.
There’s no one way to tell if something is good for you or not. A certain amount of fat is important for your body to keep functioning properly, and just eating fried foods now and then definitely won’t have a negative impact on your health by itself. However, air fryers let you cook a much larger array of food, and they let you cook these foods simply and easily. Being able to cook more food more simply will definitely lower your stress levels, and there’s strong evidence that being more comfortable while eating lets you absorb more of the nutrients from it! It’s a win all around.

"You can make the best possible version in the air fryer," says Mims. "Yes, of course you can deep fry them. Yes, of course you can bake them. But they never live up to their promise. They're always coming out soggy and chewy, rather than truly crispy." So from now on, it's all about the air fryer. "The high heat, circulating at a super-fast speed, dries out the chickpeas so they're almost dehydrated." And a dehydrated chickpea is a crispy chickpea.
Adjustable Temperature: Often times, you need to adjust the temperature while cooking, or else the food will either come out under or overcooked. The Philips XL Airfryer allows you to adjust the temperature and turn it up to 390 degrees, unlike other air fryers that only have one temperature setting. This also lets you cook a variety of different foods that require a certain temperature to make perfectly.Adjustable temperature: Often times, you need to adjust the temperature while cooking, or else the food will either come out under or overcooked.

If you’re OK with an air fryer taking up a lot of space, than the Philips XL comes with our recommendation.  With a price exceeding the $200 mark, it is a fairly expensive piece of equipment but it does cook food to a very high standard and is well built and usable.  Included in this price is a free app and recipe book with more than 150 recipes.  You’ll also have the option of purchasing a grill pan and double layer rack with skewers as additional cooking accessories.
I see most people on here say they have had theirs for a couple of months before the fan failed. My wife and I had ours for only a week. We tried to return it back to the vender that sold it to us, my wife lost the receipt and the wouldn't take it back even though that was the only one they had in stock and they knew who she was. $159 + tax $171.00 down the drain. The oven was poorly made and I think that was on purpose and guaranteed to break down just to take your money. If you look up parts for this thing you can't find them. The so-called company is a total sham.
So I got mine just before christmas. Came earlier than expected. No scratches, no damage. Tried chicken first filled 3 racks and it was great. Next try was frozen nuggets and fresh fries nuggets were great. Fries ( havent figured them out tried all kinds of ways, just end terrible ) made jerky used all 5 trays almost 5lbs worked great. I am not impressed with the recipe books still searching for more recipes. Gonna try burgers today. Also drip pan began to flake away and I called customer service and they shipped me a new one No charge. But I've not given up yet have to learn how to use still times are funny. No setting and forgetting on this one. But overall it does make the best chicken as long as you have a meat thermometer.
All of that changed when I bit the bullet and purchased my air fryer. I’d seen air fryers touted on YouTube for several years, but I took it as a passing fad, like many (most) “unusual” kitchen gadgets. I was also skeptical—how could this little Wall-E looking machine recreate the texture of fried food, with hardly any oil, without the splatter war-wounds to show for it?

And not only did I think we were not going to use it, I especially did not want another “thing” on my kitchen counter. Extra stuff on my kitchen counters is really one of my pet peeves. I really despise anything being dumped on them, whether it’s mail, car keys, computers…take them to your room and keep them there! But that’s a rant for another day.

Preheat oven to 415 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with nonstick parchment paper. Repeat directions for making sauce and tossing/coating cauliflower. Spread cauliflower evenly on baking sheet. Roast for 40 minutes, turning halfway through, or until cauliflower is tender with dark golden brown edges. Storage directions are the same as above. To reheat, add to a 400 degrees oven for 5 minutes, or until warmed through.


I give this appliance a big fat O ! First one they sent us was a display model. Couldn’t use it. No cord, couldn’t open it, came with nothing. Took at least a month for them to refund our money . My hubby ordered another one for me for Christmas 2017. Used only 4 times and it stopped working. Trying to get our money back again now. DONT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!
