Anko 5.3L Airfryer $89 @ Kmart

220

First post so please be kind guys… Guess it's good value considering the size and convenience for those who have extra bench-space. I believe it's larger capacity than the Philips XXL and priced at the fraction of it.

I've been trying to get one of this for weeks but has always been out of stock online. Currently, still showing unavailable online, with some stores on low-stock. Made few calls around my area (VIC Eastern Suburbs)- only Burwood seems to have stock. Picture taken 11am today, still more stocks on the rack behind this.

There is limited stock and staff did mention that they can't put the air-fryer on hold as it's extremely popular right now- hence only available for pick-up, unfortunately.

Product Info:

  • Removable frying basket
  • Overheat protection
  • 30 minutes timer setting
  • Adjustable temperature up to 200 degrees Celcius
  • 1800 watts
  • 38.9cm (H) x 32.6cm (W) x 37.2cm (D)
  • Colour: Black

Definitely excited to experiment with new recipes. Enjoy!

    Whilst these are amazing, and my absolute favourite appliance that I own (I actually own the 3.2L and the 5.3L, seriously buy yourself one like yesterday), this does not really constitute a deal as it is the regular price.

    •  

      Does this mean it should go in the forum? Availability of things is key at the moment as well.

      •  

        I would say so. I'm a member of a Kmart air fryer facebook page, and since they've been released it's always been hard for a lot of people to find in certain areas, regardless of the Pandemic.

      If anyone here is thinking of getting one, I advise you to check out the facebook group "share kmart air fryer recipes australia" as it made me go from "eh.. maybe i'll think about getting one" to "Oh my god I need one righ now" after a short browse. Makes the best roast pork you could ever dream of.

      Really? A friend raved about them to me the other day so we bought one (3.5kg) while I was at Kmart last week. It's pretty average. I already have a fan forced oven and this doesn't do anything that the oven doesn't - but takes up extra space on the bench. We're planning to return ours next time we got to the shops.

      For what it's worth, the kmart near me had shelves full of the 1.5kg(?) and 3.5kg models.

        I have a $3000+ AEG all frills oven, my Kmart air frier cooks perfect crackling every time, the AEG is pathetic.

        Of course it's possible you just have a really fantastic oven, but the way an air fryer circulates the air is much more concentrated so for me things like roast pork which are hard for a lot of people to really perfect (like with -perfect- crackling every time) become extremely easy. Things like chicken pieces are MUCH crispier but also much juicer inside, and everything cooks about 1/3 faster using much less power. I -hate- oven cooked chips, but I love them in the air fryer, they're extremely close to deep fried. Maybe you just haven't seen its true potential? I dunno. Here's a pic I posted above of a few things cooked in it: https://imgur.com/a/V6HJAXL

          Never thought of roast pork with crackling, any good recipes?

            @TEER3X: Here's the cooking method of the pork pictured in the link I posted, I believe the one I made was cooked in a similar way and it came out perfect. Making sure the pork is dried really well is the most important step. The boiling water step is because once it's scored, if you pour boiling water over the skin it will cause the skin to shrink and open up the scored areas to allow more salt/heat to penetrate the skin and will result in crispier crackling. Just again.. make sure you dry it very thoroughly afterwards before adding the oil and salt. One of mine was a weird shape and part of the crackling didn't turn out that great, I was able to just cut that part off and chuck it in by itself, cooked perfectly in no time.

            Another thing, if you don't have one a meat thermometer is your best friend :D

      i do scones in mine - 3 ingredients - 1 cup lemonade, 1 cup cream, 3 cups plain flour - it makes about 20 scones and i can fit 8-9 at time in the 3.2 AF. also made cakes (but secret is to cook longer at lower temp)

    •  

      I made some fabulous cinnamon rolls and threw the scraps in a ramekin Into the air fryer and it turned out perfect.

    My man has me on a one in one out regime. I would need to find a home for one of my current things for me to buy this. We don’t eat enough fried stuff to make it worth while.

    •  

      Throw out your toaster. This makes fabulous toast. And you don’t have to worry about the pop up lifter thing.

  •  

    I'm debating between this one & the kogan one:

    https://www.kogan.com/au/buy/kogan-52l-digital-low-fat-1800w...

    Same price & CHOICE rate Kogan much better than Kmart one

  •  

    Are there replacement baskets available, and/or in stainless? I couldn't find anything online.

  •  

    I have one of these and can’t fault it. I have only used my oven once since I bought the air fryer.

  •  

    Being a fan for the Dim Sim, how does the air fryer compare to traditional frying? And how long do they take in the air fryer?

    •  

      It takes half the time of an oven on average.

      Dim sims turn out good. It won't have bubbly crispy skin but it's more like a baked hard outer part while moist in the middle.

  •  

    Thanks OP. Just managed to order one online. Had been thinking of buying for ages. No mention of being out of stock so fingers crossed it arrives.

    What does it say about the community that new posters feel the need to plead for decency?

      That too many people who reply in the comments section don’t rhink before they type. Our first thought should be “how can we be helpful” rather than “how can I point score”. Me, I’m grateful people post anything because they are doing us a favour. If they are put off I might miss out on a great deal because they won’t post again. Education is best by leading rather than hitting.

    Thanks OP

    Unfortunately, none in stock anywhere near me but I appreciate your effort to give us a heads up.

  •  

    Hi. How many kg meat can be cooked in this please? Do you need to shake or turn the meat ? Never used one. Thx

    •  

      As much as you can fit in a 30x30cm (approx) area. May need turning depending on the size/cut. Air circulation in some models is usually good enough to get under items such as chicken wings/drums.

      If you can get a metal (cooling) rack (quick google search, there are probably cheaper options) smaller than your air-frier basket and pop it in the bottom, it'll allow airflow underneath and reduce/remove the need to flip.
