Instant Pot 140-3082-01
I'm so irritated already
The media could not be loaded. I read the instructions and followed all directions. I did the test run. Plug it in. Hit air fry, temp to 205, start. At add food, i pulled out the basket and pushed it back in. It stuck a little, but after after few tries , it went back in. At turn food, I removed the...

NuWave 6 Quart 37001
Time saver
I bought this air fryer a month ago because I heard chicken wings cooked in the air fryer are the best. Fast, crispy, and low calorie treat. After making wings, I started looking for other uses. A five pound chicken or four pound turkey breast fits easily in the basket and cooks in an hour. Preheat ...

Dissatisfied
I was very excited to get this air fryer but, within a month, the bottom of the basket began to peel and, along with peeling comes the rust. I was stuck with it b/c I read this was not a warranty issue so very disappointed and looking for a new air fryer but most likely not this brand. I will say, a...

Nonstick Surface

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...

The fryer was so simple to use and the flavor of my sweet potato fries were awesome
I like the fact the fries were crisp and very tasty. I bakes or what the call it fries with no messy oil. Quickly cooked. There was no real clean up. After it cooled I used a paper towel to wipe off any crumbs. That was it. and that was nice. I totally recommend the fryer. And I got the add on piece...

NuWave 6 Quart 37001
Fries cooked in it are not even as good as just cooking them in the oven would be
If you use both racks it doesnt cook the items on the second rack very well, it takes much longer to cook and the food is over cooked on the outside. Fries cooked in it are not even as good as just cooking them in the oven would be, cooking them in a deep fryer with oil is far better. I tried the it...

Size

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.

Downgraded to one star
UPDATE: 3/16/18 My first use of the "pan" and the coating came off. I contacted customer service for NuWave and they said the coating is not covered under the warranty but for shipping and handling of $10.95 they will send me a new pan. The pan is not worth $11 dollars, believe me. We will find anot...

Power Usage

Instant Pot 140-3082-01
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...

Died in less than 90 days
I loved this air fryer from the beginning. We used this nearly every day. The controls are easy to use, the temperature settings right on and everything we cooked in the fryer was yummy. We especially love wings cooked in the Nuwave. However, on day 89 I plugged it in and nothing! It was dead. Conta...
