Compare Pros and Cons
Power Air Fryer Oven Pros
This air fryer oven is rated well by customers who have tried making items such as pork chops, onion, rings, French fries, fried chicken, and more. It has great additional features and the touch screen works very well at selecting the options. One can easily make various recipes and set different instructions for a quick meal.
Power Air Fryer Oven Cons
Few users have found it to be a little smaller than seen on the TV. Also, the asking price for direct TV order is much higher in comparison with other similar fryers. Another issue with Power Air Fryer Oven that many users noticed is that the system is good only for fried foods but doesn’t roast or grill well enough.
NuWave Brio Air Fryer Pros
Most users who have tried using the NuWave Brio Air Fryer are satisfied with its functioning. The digital interface is easy to use even by elders. The frying takes place very well for all types of food items. Also, the pre-heat functions work decently for most recipes.
NuWave Brio Air Fryer Cons
It starts to make a lot of noise after the initial uses. Also, the cooking process isn’t fast enough and the basket cleaning takes a lot of time. The Teflon coating starts to come off with each wash and the build quality of the fryer isn’t up to the mark. The basket itself is pretty flimsy and unstable in the first place. Overall, there are durability concerns regarding this fryer. Even though the pre-heat function is a decent addition, occasionally it takes a lot of time to reach the optimal temperature for cooking.
Philips Air Fryer Pros
This fryer is perfect for frying frozen items and provides great tasting results. The build quality is commendable and cleaning up the basket is a breeze. It works perfectly for small apartments and one to two individuals. The timer feature works excellently and can be used to cook various types of recipes with ease.
Philips Air Fryer Cons
Even though the overall body of Philips Air Fryer is good, the basket clip isn’t made of good quality and comes off easily. Another issue with this air fryer is that the basket size is small and isn’t suitable for a family of more than 2 or 3 individuals. Many users have felt that it is hard to clean especially when it is used for baking since the breading sticks to the wire bottom and doesn’t come off easily. There also is an issue of residual heat that can produce unnoticeable smoke while using the fryer on a regular basis.
