“Always wanted to try an air fryer because it’s a healthier way of cooking and preparing foods. After reading so many reviews, I found this fryer to be extremely [attractive], therefore I decided to give it a try. It is a 1,400-watt fryer with eight preset smart programs for basically all of my needs. You can fry, steam, grill, roast, and even bake with it! The timer and temperature can be set to be automatic, but if you preferred to manually check your food you can do that as well. This air fryer causes no smoke while preparing foods because it uses rapid air circulation to create heat that goes up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit … The cleaning is a breeze since there is not much residue. I am really satisfied with this air fryer and will definitely recommend it to my other friends.”
According to a Pinterest study, this nifty new appliance is going to be a big deal in 2018, thanks to a cooking method that swaps the vat of oil for a mechanical fan to keep traditionally deep-fried delicacies low (or even completely free) of grease. Looks like dreams really do come true for those of us who really (really) like fried food but hold ourselves back because, you know, trans fats/heart disease/etc.
The air circulation is system is further divided into two different systems. The first system controls the temperature of the fryer together with internal pressure and called as the exhaust system. This is used to address the hot air in the fryer and also uses a filtering option before finally transferring the air. The next system is a cooling system. In Air Fryer, to control the internal temperature, a cooling fan is used to circulate fresh air from top to bottom. This is why the air fryer never becomes hot even while cooking.
I went to the store and there they were, same brand and everything. I split up the bag, and started one batch in the air fryer, and another in my oven with the convection off, then made a follow-up batch using the convection setting. The air fryer fries were nicely browned and crisp, but a bit hollowed out, seemingly at the expense of some pleasant creaminess inside. The no-convection oven batch was more leathery on the outside, creamy within, and noticeably less browned. The convection oven version landed squarely between the two.
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.
SO GOOD! We eat these a lot in my house – with the almond flour. They are super crispy and delicious! My gluten free kid and grain free husband love them! Sometimes I get some paleo buffalo sauce and brush both sides of the chicken tender and bake them for 5 minutes at 350 after air frying to make buffalo chicken tenders – a trick I am pretty sure I learned from another Lexi recipe 😉
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.
UPDATED REVIEW: I liked this airfryer out of the box, but after eight months of regular use, I now know I could have done better. This got the job done, but it's just too small if you want to cook more than single servings. I tried stacking food in layers, which restricted the air flow, so had to cook food in multiple batches - which took forever. Cleaning the basket is an absolute nightmare. The mesh bottom gets filled in with food debris that can't easily be soaked or scrubbed out. After about five months, the plastic exterior of the cooking pan came loose. All that being said, I did like the way this fryer cooked. I decided to go with a 5.8 quart airfryer from another manufacturer (Simple Living) and found myself much more satisfied. Despite the Philips claim that the "starfish" at the bottom of the pan on this fryer makes a difference - I have found it absolutely does not. Not only that, but the other airfryer makes much less noise and has a digital display.

Before buying an air fryer, you first need to understand what are you looking at in a fryer. If your focus is on food, taste, texture, and getting your recipes right, then skip the air fryer and buy a deep fryer. It uses a lot of oil and is unhealthy, but you won't get the exact taste and texture from an air fryer, and you risk drying out some foods.
Let me start by saying I loved my air fryer oven. We used it every day, it took the place of my oven...With that said, I have had my air fryer for about 9 months and today I went to use it and it shut off 2 minutes in, gave a E1 code. Does anyone know what that code means, and can my air fryer be fixed or reset? I would be very dissapointed if it's broken. They are not cheap, and I would have hoped it would last more than 9 months. Has anyone one out there had this E1 error code come up? If I can't fix it, I will not order a new one out of fear I will be out the $160 plus again. It was a great product while it lasted, but for the money, it didn't last long enough. My advice to anyone wanting to buy this product, beware that you may be dishing out money for a product that may not last!

Different foods and meals require different temperature settings, so you need to make sure that the unit has easily adjustable temperature levels. The adjustment can be either analog or digital. Digital control is generally more accurate than the analog options, but units with digital temperature control can be pricier than those with analog control.
Traded in my Big Boss Air Fryer for one of these and I absolutely love it. I cooked bacon the other day. You need to rotate the racks every now and then because the top cooks faster than the others and you need to spritz them lightly with cooking spray. Two days ago I used the rotisserie. Took me a while to find the spit because it was on the bottom of the styrofoam packaging. Good thing I didn't throw it out. It's a great little oven. It would be perfect for a student in college or a senior. I just love it.

I received my Air Fryer Oven Elite and found I was missing the basket handle and the air fryer diffuser. I called customer service. The guy said I would have to return it at my expense. I called again. The guy said they would ship the handle but the air diffuser was optional, and I would have to purchase it separately. I asked how much it cost. He told me it was out of stock and had no idea when it would be available, no price quoted. All I want is what was promised me when I ordered. For $199.00 it should have everything. I hate companies that show one thing and then they don’t deliver the goods. Shame on you Tristar Products. How about sending me all the missing parts?

Overall, this model does everything to a decent standard, except for the aforementioned design flaw.  Although there is a work-around, it is something that you wouldn’t expect to be an issue at this price point.  If you need the power, digital screen and accessories then by all means this model could be for you, but there are definitely better choices further up this list.
Like the GoWISE model, the Avalon Bay Digital Air Fryer 220SS burned the fries closest to the heating element and left those on the bottom of the basket raw. The Avalon Bay model was one of the few that came with accessories in the box. But we found the included cake pan to be so small (it measures just 6 inches in diameter and 1 inch high) that it was virtually useless.

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.
Perfectly flaky pies from your air fryer? You bet! Store-bought piecrust is a smart shortcut; it bakes up nice and flaky in the air fryer. Naturally, fresh peaches will make the best filling, but you can use thawed frozen peaches if the fresh kind aren’t in season. Don’t toss out the leftover peach juice—simmer it down in a small saucepan until thickened for a fantastic ice cream topper.
Finally, we compared the basket weight of the products, how easy the controls were to operate, and whether the machine was actually hassle-free to clean up. Fortunately for our co-workers, the air-frying process was measurably less messy than deep frying. We didn’t have an oily pool to clean up afterward; the components were smaller than deep fryer parts; and the total cook time was pretty short, so you don’t have to waste all that time waiting. The controls are all pretty intuitive and simple to use: You can choose from the presets or go rogue and set your own temperature and time.
In terms of the design, it’s fairly generic and copies the egg shape of other air fryers.  It comes with a digital screen that has 7 pre-set programs for cooking different food items.  You can also adjust the timer and temperature if you wish and it should be noted that when the timer expires, it will automatically shut off the machine so your food won’t keep cooking.  Top this off with a cool to touch handle (this thing goes up to 400 °F!) and we have a safe and user-friendly air fryer.

Apart from the calories which cause us to become overweight and thus lead to the development of some mild to severe chronic illnesses and conditions, deep fried foods also contain Trans fats. These are a result of the hydrogenation which manufacturers add to the deep fried products in order to increase their stability and shelf life. This process changes the structure of fats and makes it much more difficult for our bodies to break it down properly.
The racks are great because you can cook on up to 5 racks at a time. Foods that are battered stick no matter what you do. The manufacturers suggest you spray racks with olive oil, canola oil, PAM, etc. I have done that and they still stick. If you just cook without batter, it still sticks. I recently cooked some French Bread Pizza and I couldn't get it to cook without overcooking it. Definitely do not use the box's time, it'll be burnt to a crisp. I wouldn't suggest buying this item. Also, if you want to cook rotisserie chicken, you can only use a 4 lb chicken. This is also a small unit that I bought, so it limits the size of chickens, etc.
The GoWise 8-in-1 Air Fryer XL 5.9 Qt does very well at air frying and has some nice advantages. In addition to a large capacity, it has digital controls with eight preprogrammed settings (hence the name) and an alarm that you can set to remind you to toss food during cooking. It doesn’t require preheating and the basket is both nonstick coated and dishwasher safe. With your GoWise, you also get a cookbook that provides lots of ideas for air frying. In addition to black and white, you can choose from red and purple housing.

So how does this work?  Well, the infrared heats up the food from the inside out whilst retaining internal moisture.  The halogen and convection part works similar to a halogen convection oven and uses a halogen lamp to produce heat which is then spread via a fan.  It is therefore possible to cook food 3 times faster than a conventional oven.  Now, the most important question, how does this technology combine to cook food?


Meet the air fryer, the miracle kitchen gadget that every healthy cook should have. Essentially a small convection oven, an air fryer works by circulating hot air up to 400 degrees around your food, transforming it into crispy perfection without all the oil or butter you'd normally need. (Don't own an air fryer? We love the Cuisinart Air Fryer Toaster Oven.)
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.
I ordered the Power Air Fryer Oven on 12-26-17 and it was delivered 1-16-18. Took a long time because of a back order. I used it once and the second time we tried to use it the fan would not blow air. So we packed it up and mailed it back on 1-19-18. I have called twice to find out if our package was received and got no answers just told to call back. We paid for this in full and now we have nothing! This is very upsetting that I can't get any answer and we are out $171.00 with no oven to use.
I went to the store and there they were, same brand and everything. I split up the bag, and started one batch in the air fryer, and another in my oven with the convection off, then made a follow-up batch using the convection setting. The air fryer fries were nicely browned and crisp, but a bit hollowed out, seemingly at the expense of some pleasant creaminess inside. The no-convection oven batch was more leathery on the outside, creamy within, and noticeably less browned. The convection oven version landed squarely between the two.
