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.).
You get many extras with this unit, including a baking pan and muffin cups so you can make desserts in addition to snacks and meats. There are also additional racks to facilitate roasting and grilling. Since the Brio is much more compact than your oven, and most toaster ovens, it can do all of these tasks very quickly, albeit in limited quantities.

And, don’t let it sit there dirty for a days. “Not cleaning is a big mistake. Just about every recipe I've ever made leaves some debris or crumbs behind. If those food particles stay in the unit they will burn quickly the next time you fire up the machine,” she says. This can not only smoke and smell but also ruin whatever new dish you’re cooking up.
The fry basket is what you put the actual food in. This is almost always removable, and tends to have a handle on it to easily transfer food from the fryer to the plate. Many times, the basket is also dishwasher safe, to make cleanup easier. Fry baskets may have an accessory like an extra shelf, to increase the space available for cooking flat items.
- Vents very hot air out the back, which I'd forgotten, and one night noticed one of my blinds was drooping and quickly realized it was because I had the fryer too close to the wall. I was able to bend the blind back into shape, well mostly straight anyways. LOL! Now I just make sure I pull the fryer out to the edge of the counter and have had no issues since.
The Cozyna 3.7 QT is a perfect small and yet very powerful convection oven which you can use to cook just about anything faster and without the mess involved in traditional frying, roasting, baking or grilling. After you are done, you can quickly take it apart and pop it into the dishwasher. It is a great kitchen appliance which doesn’t take up too much space, and which uses minimal amounts of oil for preparing your meals.

This Secura 1500 is a reasonably priced and very useful kitchen gadget. It can be used for frying, for reheating food as well as for grilling. It is easy to use and clean and features a large sized basket which can fit some snacks or a meal for 3-4 people. The temperature ranges are 180-400, and there are so many recipes available for preparing with this wonderful appliance.
The very latest version HD9641/96 is 50% smaller than the original Philips XL Airfryer HD9240/94 model, and offers 1.8lb cooking capacity (1 bag of French fries). It is light, compact, and cooks more quickly, which should serve you perfectly whether cooking for a single person or a small family up to 4 people. The unit is equipped with the new quick control dial and a function to keep your food warm for up to 30 minutes after cooking.
One other drawback is the Brio is pretty loud. There were a couple others that were louder, but this one was noticeably noisy. It is not something you would think of right away when preparing to purchase an air fryer, especially since deep-fat fryers are loud too, but it is somewhat annoying to have to talk over the Brio. If you prefer an air fryer that generates less noise, consider the Power Fryer XL.
Purchased Power Air Fryer Oven we have had an air fryer for years and love it so we were excited to try it. Five minutes after turning on the first time and very strong electrical odor was emitted and the fan quit. Did not work again. Odor so strong it lingered in the kitchen for hours. We are not first time air fryer users so this was very disappointing. Also machine cheaply made and tricky to use. Sending it back. Very dissatisfied.
The HD touchscreen eliminates the uncomfortable and often confusing buttons, knobs, and switches a lot of air fryers have. This simple screen has icons that clearly state their function and eases the cooking process. Not only that, but eliminating the buttons gives this machine an elegant design, so you can keep it in the corner of your kitchen without it looking awkwardly out of place.
Okay, yes, the small appliance was invented as a way for French-fry maniacs in France (and the rest of Europe) to make fries in their small home kitchens. And sure, the air fryer does an exceptional job of crispifying vegetables and chicken wings alike, without vats of sizzling oil. But to think of the air fryer as a, well, fryer is to both sell it short, and set yourself up for disappointment.
We can thank the dual convection fans that circulate hot air evenly around the food. The fact that it is also a relatively small unit at a 2 pound capacity – don’t expect to cook for more than 2 people – also contributes to each piece of food getting the ‘air-time’ it deserves. Worried that your food might get burnt when your not around? Black and Decker have solved this tanks to an auto shut-off feature that turns the machine off when the timer expires. Check out this cool video which compares this unit to the very popular (and more expensive) Phillips XL Airfryer – the results speak for themselves.
I had almost written off fried chickpeas as something that will never actually be good—that is, until I cooked them in the air fryer. The absence of the oil needed in the oven, deep-fat fryer, or skillet actually helps them get crispier because the air fryer’s heat dries out the exterior, while what little oil gets used has a chance to imbue the beans with a beautiful golden brown color. All crunch + no mess = I’m sold.
Our own testing agrees with other users experience. We first put in frozen chips and set it to what was recommended in the cookbook. They came out well cooked and crispy. Next we threw in some chicken drumsticks – 4 in total – and found the top and bottom to be more brown than the sides. Note that we were testing the larger 5 L model, but the results can be applied to the smaller capacity version as well.
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.
My husband made this tonight and followed the directions to the tee. When I bit into my piece, the chicken was grossly undercooked. I then checked the internal temp with an instant food thermometer and the temp was only 118 degrees. Chicken needs to be 165. Quite a food safety hazard. I would recommend checking the internal temp of the chicken and I would suggest you add that to the written recipe. When fully cooked it was delicious.
Best Air fryer are machines that allow you to fry foods with little to no oil. The machine coats the food with a thin layer of oil and heats it up, essentially frying it by circulating hot air in an enclosed space. This allows you to cook up delicious, crispy fried food with up to 80% less fat than traditionally deep-fried dishes, which are high on cholesterol and are unhealthy.
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.
This recipes uses one of my very favourite seasonings in the world : Old Bay Seasoning. It’s a very East Coast spice mix ( I was SO happy to have it in New Jersey when we visited) but this Alberta girl has been using it for years already. Mike and I will simply sprinkle Old Bay onto our chicken drumsticks and roast them thusly, with nothing else on it. You could easily do the same with the chicken drumsticks in the Phillips Airfryer as well, if you want a gluten-free option!
It is a multifunctional appliance which you can use instead of your oven, deep oil fryer, pans, convection oven, and others. This model can fry, steam, bake, and roast and grill various foods for you. This limits the energy consumption from needing to use all kinds of other appliance for cooking food and also ensures that you don’t consume too much unhealthy oil with the meals you prepare. It also limits the mess of using too many utensils and having oil splatters around the kitchen.
It's an oven, dehydrator, rotisserie, air fryer and can even do your taxes. Ok maybe not the taxes part. What I love about this unit is how easy it is to use. The settings allow you to do so much. It's spacious enough for a whole chicken, yet compact enough to have on your kitchen counter space. The dehydrator is perfect for making healthy fruit and veggie chips. The air fryer is great for french fries, fish sticks, and chicken nuggets without the guilt. You can even stick a whole chicken in it, set it, and it'll do it's thing. Cleaning is also a breeze where you can take out the racks and trays to wash separately. Love this great addition to any kitchen. * I am writing this review as part of a contest.
