Chefman TurboFry Air Fryer 4.5 Quart
Crispy fried foods made healthy!!!
I love fried foods...let's be honest, we all do! But we don't like the calories that come with all the oil used in frying. This is such a great alternative to deep frying, because you can make the same foods, but save on calories. It makes the food crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. And o...

Instant Pot 140-3082-01
Good size, nice design, easy clean-up
I got this air fryer mostly as an alternative to my "Fry Daddy" deep fryer. Deep fryers are OK, but they are sometimes messy, hard to clean, and require frequent oil changes. I want a quick easy way to make various things like French fries, pierogis, etc. Not looking to cook complete meals or entree...

Size

Chefman TurboFry Air Fryer 4.5 Quart
Great product!
I love the size and it's a great design as well. It took a few minutes for the "new" smell to stop but I honestly didn't mind since I knew that it was brand new. I love that I now have a way to fry without the oil! It's healthier and in some cases tastier. I do love a good fried donut and while the ...

Instant Pot 140-3082-01
A hot mess of a small appliance
Smelled like electrical fire/burning plastic. Dial didn’t work so we couldn’t change temperature or cook times. Took up a lot of space on the counter. I love my InstantPot, but this thing was used 3 times and returned. Even if the dial worked, I don’t think I could have justified keeping it.

Power Usage

Chefman TurboFry Air Fryer 4.5 Quart
Misrepresentation
Although this a great air fryer. I didn't give it 5 stars because of misrepresentation. Under the "abut this item" section is states it is a 1200w. But the sticker on the unit itself states it is 1500w. Why is that important? I am a long haul truck driver. I have a 1500w inverter in my truck so I ca...

Tray Issues After Using
Cooking quality wasn’t bad. I mainly used it for frozen items or reheating leftovers. The biggest problem is the tray not sliding in after usage. After items are heated, it doesn’t go back in. When the unit cools down, it’s a hassle to get close. While a patient person wouldn’t mind, it can be annoy...

Cooking Time

Chefman TurboFry Air Fryer 4.5 Quart
My New Favorite Kitchen Appliance
I have to say, I was hesitant to fall into the hype and purchase another kitchen gadget. But now that my husband and I are empty nesters this gadget is helping me to prepare smaller portions. The obvious primary draw is that you use less oil....but that can be true in the oven too. The real draw is ...
