Size

Big Boss 8605
Larger than it looks!
I must say this thing is huge! Some asked can you cook a whole turkey in this thing and I'd say with the extension ring, Yes! After researching many brands and finding out all the pros and cons I decide to buy this one. I did not want a small one and also didn't like the idea of the teflon coating c...

The little oven that could!
When my toaster gave out, I set out to look for a basic toaster oven. Things admittedly snowballed and I (happily) ended up with the Omni Plus. My local Target store had two in stock, and one is now in my kitchen. Since I’ve had several opportunities to use it, I wanted to answer some questions I se...

Instant Pot 140-4002-01
Makes an amazing rotisserie chicken!
This air fryer oven is the perfect size for my counter because it fits between my espresso machine and my refrigerator with a little bit of space in between (the manual says to allow some space for fire prevention). There is also coverage above the unit before it reaches the my cabinets, as well. Fo...

But never owning a fancy $400 air fryer I fell in love with this one. the complaints were its not like the picture you cant stack food in it.

READ WARNINGS, terrible burning plastic smell and bad instructions, even months later
Lowered from 3 to 2 stars....have been using this for months. The fan is still very loud, and it still smells of burning plastic when cooking. Previously wrote: Third night...trying my baked falafels. My 1 usual cookie sheet made 2 layers in the air fryer. Had to do only 1 at a time per previous pos...

Health Benefits

Big Boss 8605
Healthy alternative
For health reasons my family decided to ditch the fried food, and try a more healthy alternative. The first night we tried this, we made onion rings, low fat jalapeno poppers, and calamari rings. The recipes were a mixed success, but the cooking was perfect. The onions were soft and done, the outsid...

Easy Cooking
The 18L Omni Plus Toaster Oven is a great product. Very easy to use with 8 preset programs. Cooks faster than conventional oven with less grease. Makes fried foods a snap and much healthier. A good replacement for microwave.

Baking

Big Boss 8605
Great way to cook chicken!
I found this item for a friend who was dieting, but the more I looked at it the better I liked it. We got it and tried "fried" chicken breasts. The chicken was the best I have ever made period. I cut up the chicken in large pieces, and the smallest pieces were not over done. All of the chicken was t...

Love the new one knob settings, but a big problem!
I got this oven to review through the Amazon Vine program. I had returned another Omni Plus I paid for, since it didn't toast or bake well so I was excited to try out what I assumed was an improvement, and yes, it most certainly is! So far, I have baked biscuits , oatmeal cookies and a coffee cake. ...
