Instant Pot 140-3000-01
Makes My Food Crispy and Delicious!
I am super excited about this air fryer oven. It is so easy to use and makes my food extra crispy and delicious. It is like a mini oven. It is ten quarts which means I can cook a lot of food at one time. It is square which fits perfectly on my shelves in the kitchen. It heats up quickly and gets ver...

Wonky "On/Off" button
The oven works fine, though many of the pre-sets are difficult to comprehend. EX: "Toast" at a mere 320 degrees for 3 minutes? It barely heats the bread! The temperature and time are easy to change, fortunately, and it is nice that the timer will go for more than 60 minutes. The thermostat also seem...

Instant Pot 140-3000-01
Love it !
I’ve had this 10 in 1 oven model for about a month, it was so hard to pick which air fryer to buy and all the reviews for this oven were actually for the 11 in 1 model, so I ha to go on You tube for this one. I was just looking for something that could toast, bake and air fry without exploding, Lol!...

Cooking Time

Instant Pot 140-3000-01
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...

Timer is weirdly set up on fryer
Cons: The timer starting point is at the 20 min. mark on dial. You either turn to the right for 10 mins. of cook time starting at the 30 min. mark on timer.... so, setting to the right will end when it hits the 20 min. mark and will ring the Off Bell. Turn to the left from the 20 min. mark starting ...

Instant Pot 140-3000-01
Needs more testing!
I like The Instant Pot. It is well designed and thoroughly tested - this oven is neither. The trays that support the food are *barely* large enough to stay in the runners that hold them up and frequently fall when being taken in and out or having something placed on them. Like a chicken being roaste...

Great Air Fryer...
An excellent air fryer is the Elite Gourmet EAF-0201 Personal Compact Space Saving Electric Hot Air Fryer with 2.1 Quart. This is a really nice size. Big pluses for this fryer are the temperature and time control knobs and the ease of clean-up on the non-stick surfaces of the pans. Cooking is also v...

Nonstick Surface

Instant Pot 140-3000-01
$300 and the accessories fit poorly in this (very poorly). Don't waste your money
You cannot place the racks or pan in this (yes, the ones that come with it) without them crashing into the bottom heating elements. Ok, I figured leaving the rack in and preheating might do the trick. Nope. I am very dissatisfied. Hard to use if you can't put anything in it that stays at any of the ...
