    Good deal for those people who don't own an oven.

      I own both. I rarely use the oven.

        Ditto, the air fryer uses less electricity than the oven too. Plus it cooks things faster, love it.

        I'm about to place an order, but just one question, can you cook a whole chicken in this model or it is too small?

        • +1 vote

          only if u have a really small chicken … i wouldnt be cooking raw meat in this thing … its great for cooking frozen foods, especially chips. its really just a convection oven.

          I've cooked a whole chicken in mine, its fine. Turned out really good.

          I think you might need one of the XXL ones for a whole chicken.

        •  

          @unco:

          I've got the one in the link, XXL is way better for it though.

    Have seen a few youtubers use this and rave about it. The healthy side of it and how easy it is to make stuff. They are gym/fitness youtubers though, so YMMV

      I have a bigger one and I agree - it's a great unit. I'm not too big on being healthy but it's super convenient. Just set and forget and you come back to pretty nice food.

        easy to clean ?

        what are the steps for cleaning after each use ?

        • +1 vote

          I don't have this particular model, I have the bigger one (Philips Avance), just have to take the mesh basket out and give it a wash or put it in the dishwasher. Not 100% sure if this is the same.

        •  

          @p1 ama: I have this model, and can confirm you can use the dishwasher to wash it! I do it every couple of uses (normally just frying potato) or straight away if I've cooked something like chicken. Wipes down pretty easy as well when you can't be bothered with the dishwasher.

      OK if you need the Carbs for Gym etc., but not for most of the population.

        i thought this is easiest way to cook chicken , no ?

      •  

        Do you think most people only use their oven to cook carb-dense food? If so, I understand your point.

        I've cooked so countless roasts in mine, ranging up to about 1.5kg in weight. Chicken, pork, beef, lamb. I've even tried duck breast, salmon, omelettes, cauliflower bakes… There are so many possibilities.

    So basically these air fryers are just convection ovens yeah? Similar to something like this: http://www.kmart.com.au/product/12l-convection-oven/847303

    •  

      yes i have something similar to the link … the oven is much bigger than the fryer … they are essentially the same. i would cook raw food in the oven but not the fryer simply because you can see it through the glass, it especially does chinese style pork belly very well.

      •  

        You know you can just pull the draw out to look at the food right?

        •  

          Tehn u have to move it around cause u can onky see the top… Plus the actual usuable space is much smaller

        •  

          @hippyhippy:

          I've never had these problems you're stating. Its realistically no different to cooking in a pan in the oven, same issue with "viewing angles".

    I have an oven, so for those reasons I'm out.

    I have an oven and have no more space in my kitchen, so for those reasons I’m out

  •  

    Its a great healthy cooker, no fatty foods, so easy to clean, rare to use our oven now, had ours about two years love it.

  •  

    How long would it take to save money assuming you cook say a kilo of food twice a week compared to a standard oven. Obviously just use estimates.

    What's the roi on this thing compared to a large oven?

    I ask because the timer on my oven is broken so this might actually be useful or the Kmart one at like a third of the price.

    Don't have dishwasher so will have to hand wash every few fry's.

    •  

      https://breville.com.au/collections/ovens/products/the-smart... you can buy one of this very good small oven. Everything you need and compact.

      •  

        A bit pricey but it's on the list. I grew up with one of these or similar and I must say they had everything I really ever needed.

        Was a pain to wash though I think it was washed like only a handful of times over at least 5-10 years.

        •  

          if you compare air fryer to this oven this oven is better bigger and more value. I got air fryer and this oven. We only use the air fryer once and never use again. if you put bag of chips into air fryer you need to turn the chips in middle of the cook otherwise the middle of chips are not cook well. The breville oven is around $230 when it's on sale. you can cook whole chicken with the oven.

        •  

          @Unity55: nice that actually might sway my decision greatly now as yeah the main things I will probably be cooking is stuff like finger snacks like chips, pies, spring rolls and all sorts of other things

      •  

        http://www.kmart.com.au/product/35l-oven/480307 much much cheaper and they're really good!

        •  

          Not the same thing. The Breville and the fryer are convection ovens; yours is just a small radiation oven.

    •  

      How long would it take to save money assuming you cook say a kilo of food twice a week compared to a standard oven.

      Good question. A couple of hours roasting? It depends how efficient (well insulated etc) your oven is,
      but say 30 mins of on-time during the cook @ 2400W = 1.2kWhr, 40 cents.

      Suppose air fryer uses half the power (wild guess), you save 20c/cook.
      Twice a week thats $20/year, so ROI is seven years. Your tariff and power use may vary a lot.

      I think people miss that this is just a mini fan-forced oven.
      Any major advantages over the K-mart one linked above?

        Hmm. I guess I will stay with my large under the counter "normal" big kitchen oven. Not sure what it is rated at but it is very big (specifications probably at the back or something) so I'm guessing a couple of kilowatts minimum needs a special plug type I think to the oven itself (we needed a licensed electrician to do the connecting).

        Only problem was the timer knob was very fragile and wasn't flexible or able to be changed if you put it for too long so it broke quickly due to frustration.

        Feels nice too I guess not having to worry about food space when cooking I suppose.

      •  

        I bought one of those fan forced oven a few years ago from aldi and the glass top shattered while cooking a roast lamb. My parents have used them for years and swear by them theirs being a more expensive brand though.

  •  

    why are people scared of cooking raw meat in this ? I always cook raw chicken wings and drums, around 15min at 180 deg and comes out great all the time.

    I use the Bellini Air Fryer from Target ($99) and that one is fantastic.

    800g capacity?? That's minuscule!!

    Most air fryers start at 2L, going up to 4L in this drawer model, and 10-17L in the glass dome types.
