It's a rebranded Oster Countertop Oven; https://www.oster.com/kitchen-appliances/air-fryers/oster-co...

Bought one last week, the convection and bake settings work very well, with relatively stable and accurate temperatures. I like to put it outside on the veranda for long bakes, since using my full size oven for small tasks is less efficient and heats up the house like a mfer. Airfrying is decent, I think the Phillips one has a higher rate of airflow though and the XXL might have more capacity, but this is perfectly fine since I can't really justify a uni-tasker that expensive. I haven't tried the toast or pizza settings yet.

Compared to the breville equivalents;

Pros; much cheaper
Cons; 60 minute timer kinda sucks (you have to keep resetting it), no internal light, looks worse, feels cheaper.

    What is the difference between an "air fryer" and a "fan-forced oven"? I'm struggling to see any, aside form sales language.

      It's just a higher fan speed, hence higher convection heat transfer. Compared to a normal convection oven, baking things like chips will just take less time.

      I think the only advantage of 'air-fryers' is efficiency for small quantities.

      To me air fryer is a unit that includes a basket that can be removed to shake the contents. Anything is a pain to deal when "air" frying, chips, nuggets, chicken/fish fingers etc.

      It's just marketing.

      I have one, girl-friend another. We both love them but they're basically just a small high air flow oven.

      Just like a fan forced oven needs lower heat and is quicker than a conventional oven, these mini ovens (aka air fryers) need even lower heat and less time.

      But they don't fry. That's just marketing talk. (And very clever marketing at that.)

      Pro's
      An airfryer instantly heats at the desired temperature and does not need to preheat. Much quicker cooking and energy efficient.
      You do not need a lot or any oil, making an airfryer generally more of a healthy style of cooking.
      The excess oil also drips through the basket and not into your food- hence healthier
      Con's
      Takes up extra space.
      Not big enough for very large families.
      Can't cook everything you can in an oven.

      Love my airfyer, but does not replace my oven

    I bought this oven when Sunbeam had 50% off for ‘friends and family’ thanks to the Ozbargain family… I have cooked fruit cakes, baked cheesecakes, lemon meringues, standard cakes and it is brilliant for a bench top oven. I rarely use my real oven any more. The air fryer is not as good as the ones that rotate the chips but is certainly good enough. It does tend to ‘air fry’ the right hand side quicker than the left or middle so I rotate the basket @ 2/3 the way through.

      Hi man, just curious though is this better than the portable Breville oven that is priced around $300?

        The Sunbeam doesn’t feel ‘portable’ in the true sense. It has the same power rating and 22l volume as the Breville but is taller and narrower. It has a much simplified operation with 3 dials rather than the Breville’s electronic function. I am not sure you could cook a large chicken In the Breville due to the lack of height but I know you can in the Sumbeam. The Breville also has 2 year warranty as apposed to 1 year for the Sunbeam. If you have a narrow tall space available on your bench and you want simple cooking, then the Sunbeam is great. I can’t comment on how good the Breville is, but reviews seem good. At $125 I would buy a couple more for family and friends. At $185 I still think it is good value. I bought mine for my business, but it never left my ‘test’ bench…

          I would buy it at $125 at a heart beat. So cheap though. I am not sure, but the Sunbeam oven does look more modern though :)

    We are using this as a longer term replacement for our oven (which died few months ago). Works really well, cooks better than the oven. This will keep us going for some time.

    My main criticism is lack of internal light - need to use the phone torch to see in :)

  •  

    Wanted to get this but was too tall for where it will go, I ended up going for the Russell Hobbs one from big w which has an air fryer feature aswell and works really good.

  •  

    The timer is limited to 60 minutes for a reason, especially on High setting!

  •  

    This would be perfect for a little apartment that doesn't have it's own conventional oven!

    How did you get free shipping? I'm getting a $30- delivery fee. Is there a code I missed somewhere?

    •  

      No code, it just didn't apply any shipping cost. Where are you located? It was free for my Brisbane metro delivery, and I think their store is in NSW

      Just checked again and mine still says free shipping

      •  

        Alice Springs Mate. Says $30- for me. Can't be helped. Would have purchased if it was free shipping.

  •  

    Has anyone got theirs yet? Mine is still stuck in the "Picked" state.
