Some drawbacks to this machine are that it is loud and very smoky. All of the fryers produced more smoke than we expected, but this one was the worst for that. It was also tough to clean. This was one of few that had a cooking basket made of wire, like hot-oil fryers. That means there are lots of tiny grooves to get clean. The denser metal baskets on competing air fryers had larger openings that didn’t trap food as much. We pre-soaked the Philips basket, but it still took some effort to get it totally clean. At least you have the option of throwing it in the dishwasher.
Prepare the chicken like you would traditionally. Preheat the air fryer for 10 minutes at 200 degrees. Sprinkle the chicken with seasoning, pass it through white flour, a bowl of battered eggs, then back to the flower again. Place it in the air fryer basket and set the timer on for 30 minutes. Cook at a temperature of 350 degrees. Flip after 30 minutes or until the outside has reached a golden-brown color and then wait 20 minutes for the other side to cook.
Easy to use. Air fryers have a very simple functionality and you may only need to press 2-3 buttons to start cooking. Some devices come with preset programs, so if you aren’t sure of the temperature or cooking time required, just press the button for the dish you are cooking just like when using a microwave (press French fries button when making fries, etc.).
Bought oven in June of this year, used about 4-5 times. Cooking French Fries on the french fry timer and the inside glass on the door shattered. Contacted Seller only to be treated like I did something wrong. Sent me a postage paid return label and I had to box up and take it to Fed Ex to return. Now they want me to sign a Release Form that basically relinquishes them for any wrong doings for the old oven as well as the new oven before they will send me a new oven that I already paid for. Totally Ridiculous! One step away from calling Better Business Bureau.
If you want to cook for a family, then buy an appliance, which has higher capacity. On the contrary, if you live alone, then the compact device will be okay for you. A healthy body is an extremely important condition for a long life! We can 100% say that eating junk food is an addiction many people just can quit. You can never get enough of it. However, after buying your first air fryer, you will enjoy the cooking process, and your body will feel light in few days. Say “no” to excessive oil and bring home this extremely useful domestic device!
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.
The timer is a sore point as it only goes up to 30 minutes and it must be noted that if you pull your food out during cooking, it will continue ticking on.  It’s a bit annoying at first but easily fixed if you pre-emptively set the time with this action already planned for.  This is another common issue prevalent in all analog air fryers and is resolved if you opt for the digital model.

Ideal cooking temperatures are hard to maintain. The secret to successful deep frying is maintaining a proper oil temperature. When cooking oil falls below a certain temperature, the food's internal moisture does not repel the oil as well, resulting in greasy, undercooked food. Simply putting a bag of frozen food into a hot deep fryer will affect the oil temperature, and the heating elements of many deep fryers take a long time to recover from the shock. This is not a concern with superheated cooking methods such as convection or air frying.
