    Are these multifunction fryers any better, worse or the same as a standard air fryer? Seems like a dumb question but I am in the market for an air fryer. Do I need all the extras?

      the airfry functions doesn't work as well as a dedicated air fryer

        I think so too

        I have this air fryer and was looking forward to the wonder of air fried chips but was very disappointed when they came out dry and chewy

          so you put these aldi multi functional air fryer and they aren't good as a proper air fryer?

        •  

          make sense since someone said in page that air blows under gap of the door…
          this would mean you are not get as tight of seal as the traditional air fryer.

        why?
        and which model you got?

        • +4 votes

          not exactly the same but a similar one from aldi.

          • the fan isn't strong enough to circulate the air,
          • the unit isn't properly sealed

          i have a dedicated airfryer and the results are better and quicker,
          i can cook a pork belly with crispy crackling in the airfryer in 30 minutes, and n the multi purpose it'll be an hour and the skin wouldn't be near crispy

      I have a ninja foodi. It has air fryer, slow cook, pressure cook and other standard functions like instant pot. I bought it because of the pressure and slow cooker and the air fryer function was added good bonus because for me I would not just buy a air fryer. Saves space too because I don't always use it.

      I've got 2 different "air fryers" and have used my GFs expensive Philips a lot.

      All much the same. This is much bigger than the XL Philips and does an excellent job. I'd use this 2-3 times/day. Love it.

      But don't buy into the wonders of an "air fryer" and how chips will be as good as deep fried. If you want deep fried chips you need to use a deep fryer. Having said that, the results from an air fryer are excellent.

        The airfryers work incredibly well with store-bought wedges and chips. For chips, I'd drizzle a tiny bit of oil on top to help retain moisture on the skin and help it crisp better. Helps with seasoning the chips after too - the oil helps with the salt to stick.

        Don't need to season wedges so I haven't bothered using oil on them, but they crisp up just fine.

    I don't recommend this air fryer oven at all.
    Had to stop using it cause it would trip the power switch.

      Maybe you need to upgrade your main powerboard.

      • +3 votes

        Maybe, but nothing else trips the power switch besides this AFO.
        I've got a Philips air fryer that uses the same outlet but doesn't trip it.

              @Tg147: Oh ok. No idea what might be causing it. I had a similar issue where by if I used the toaster while the dishwasher was in use, it would trip the power switch. Upgraded the powerboard and never had that problem since then.

            • +4 votes

              @Tg147: it's most likely the initial load that is tripping your circuit, i'd check to see if your breaker is even 20A

              • +3 votes

                @monkeyboi94: you talking about the breaker box on the side of the house?

                Most of them have 20A breaker from what I checked.

                I still getting tripping on my powerboard as well..
                when using 2 or 3 cooking appliances at once.

            •  

              @Tg147: Don't risk anything, if the phillips works, stick with it.

    •  

      Thanks Tg147 :) Appreciate the feedback and advice.

      •  

        No worries.
        I find the food cooks better in the Philips AF.
        Especially when cooking nuggets and chips for the kids.

        •  

          Any specific Philips AF model# recommended?

          • +2 votes

            @kasakaybarahayna: Just go for a XXL, better to have too much space than not enough.
            Digital or analogue, they cook the same.
            Problem I found with the analogue AF, the numbers indicating the timer comes off if you rub it too hard while cleaning.

      Sounds like you got a faulty unit, maybe?

    •  

      Im having this issue with a breville multi function air fryer. About 5-10 seconds after I turn the kettle one if the air fryer is on, the power board will click and everything shuts down. Have to use them one at a time which is a PITA.

    •  

      It's an earth leakage trip, failing insulation.

      I exactly faced the same issue and thought its just my unit was bad and stopped using it.
      It would trip the power off with 2-3 minutes of operation. Took it to my office did the same thing there(Btw I have 3 phase power supply there).
      So load wuldnt be the issue.

    •  

      Most likely not the reason, but in my Kogan AF manual states to use only the AF from the wall socket, with no other devices on/plugged in, even kinda sounds like they also mean the 2nd socket too and also not to use a power brick/strip or an extension lead while using the AF.
      So I don't.

    •  

      I had the same issue. Tried it at other people's homes and it tripped their power switch as well.

    Got this airfryer last time on sale it's very good, the only thing is the super hot air blows out though the gap at the bottom of the door because there's no seal and it will damage your bench top so I put a large cutting board under it fyi.

    •  

      Thanks spock :) Great tip if not a bit concerning about the heat it emits. Not a summer fryer then ? :)

      •  

        LoL it does warm up the kitchen a little but it really is a great cooker we use it almost every day .

    •  

      does it make dry and chewy chips and nuggets?

      Someone said it does for them above..

      •  

        I don't have any problems with anything thing we've cooked I guess it depends on the chef lol .

        •  

          chef?

          nothing chef and about putting some chips and nuggets in a oven and following the instruction on the packet..

          I suspect the reason is the cause these aren't as air tight as the normal airfryers..
          air escapes where the door gap is..so it is less hot

      I bought some heat resistant fibre gasket/seal from ebay to seal that off, works a treat

      • +1 vote

        Nearly every second day . We live in a rental with an old gas oven, which is useless. We use the air fryer instead of the oven and it's great. Good size compared to what's out there. Cooks everything quick as well. I also have the basket version from aldi but prefer the oven style since I'm too lazy to clean the basket haha. I haven't tried making a roast in it yet but baking and everything else works really well.

    Aldi? Nah.

    Book the kerbside hard rubbish collection now.

    Or -

    (Within precisely 60 days) buy it and want to return it?

    Process:

    • arrive at your preferred aldi store and attempt to attract the attention of the plastic enclosed cashier/shelf stocker/ cleaner / guard (who will appear displeased with the attention)

    -Explain that you wish to return the product, you will be instructed as follows:
    1. Wait here I'll be with you soon, when I've dealt with 'customers'
    2. Be told to enter the store and queue with everyone else

    Don't forget your receipt, which will be carefully scrutinised; will ask where the packaging is (yep the cardboard you discarded when you tore the package off the product)

    Yeah nah

    •  

      We've got one of these that we use a few times a week and have had no issues besides the heat leak from the bottom of the front panel which we fixed with a seal.

      I've also had no issues with product returns with Aldi in the past as well. Returned an 1/4" impact driver without a box and receipt cause the socket retainer ring thingo fell off.

      Really?

      Whenever I wanna return something at Aldi I just line up in the queue like everyone else.
      When I get to to the cashier I show them the receipt and they issue the refund straight away without any scrutiny really.

        Same. Only problem I ever had was when their till system refused to credit it back to my card. Took them several attempts and calls to another office before they gave a cash refund instead. The only thing they ever ask is was it faulty or just not wanted.

    I've had one since the last sale in November (I think).
    It is fantastic and i recommend it. Plenty of space to cook chips etc and a snitzel meal on a separate shelf for a family of 4
    Saves heaps of time when heating up things like pies, pastries as well.

    This is a mini fan forced oven. Not an air fryer. It can't achieve the same amount of air circulation because it's so much bigger than air fryers so things don't get as crispy.

      I've often wondered this. I have the Philips XXL twin turbo something something and it kicks butt. These just look like a small kids play oven. How do you shake the shit out of the chips halfway through the cooking process with these?

      •  

        Looks like it has a rotisserie kit you attach to a basket that helps circulation.

            @MS Paint: My bad. I thought the rotisserie handle was supposed to be used with that mesh basket (though it doesn't look like it closes?) - like the Instant Vortex.

      I mean strictly speaking - a standard air fryer is a mini fan forced oven too, just shaped in a different way.

      •  

        And a different shape to allow massive disturbed air flow unlike this Aldi example.

    So far I have bought a few electrical appliances from Aldi and they mostly perform average or poor. My recent pie maker was another disappointing purchase. It actually took so much longer to heat pies than in an air fryer or the oven. I also tried other recipes but they just took too much time and effort, plus extra cleaning. Could have done all the recipes in an air fryer or the main oven which is much easier and faster. Thanks I think I'll give this a miss.

  • +2 votes

    is the breville smart fryer any good?

    it is also 22L big so can see it being a bit poor compared to the 7L phillips XXL. The twin turbostar works well but the design is a little messy especially with fatty or moist items. I also find it a bit small some times but it is very quick and handy compared to a massive old convection oven.

    Air fryers are just ovens.

      All air fryers are ovens, but not all ovens are air fryers. I wouldn't call this an air fryer, the results will be more like an oven. My oven at home is too big and my air fryer is too small. This fills the gap.

      •  

        sure, but nothing beats the real thing. If you want to fry something, then just fry it as it should be done, submerged in hot fat.

          I only use the air fryer to reheat pre-fried food.
