Best Air Fryer for Family of Four
I love this Farberware Air Fryer Oven! It is the best air fryer for a family of four, in my opinion. The 6-quart capacity gives plenty of space for yummy foods. It has 8 easy-to-use preset cooking options. Accessories included: 2 baking air racks, baking/drip tray and rotating air fry basket with removal tool. Using little to no oil makes cooking healthier.
I have baked potatoes, it has enough room for 4 – 6 baking size potatoes, when using both baking racks. I make sure to switch the baking rakes at half of the time. That way both racks get time on top near the heat source. You can bake 3 potatoes on one baking rack. I have fried bacon, but already cooked bacon tastes best. It crisps up just like the delicious bacon you find at breakfast buffets in popular restaurants. I have made frozen onion rings, French fries, shrimp and appetizers. Most anything with oven directions can be converted to air fryer cooking.
I have tried air frying raw chicken tenders, but like them grilled much better. I have made some really good chicken kabobs in it!
It is like an easy bake oven for adults. I use it more than my regular oven. I thought having the heating element out of sight would make my regular oven easier to clean, but it just takes longer to heat up. A lot longer to heat up! Simple things will be done in the air fryer before the oven is even up to temperature.
My husband loves chicken wings in the rotating basket. They come out perfectly crisply every time. I bought an aftermarket rotating skewer rack. My husband had to alter it to fit, but that is a story for another time. I have made French fries in the rotating basket, but prefer to put them on the baking racks. It is easier to clean up.
Unfortunately this air fryer is no longer available. I bought it on a Black Friday sale for a steal at Walmart about a year and a half ago. I have since tried to find more accessories for it, with no luck. That is why I bought the aftermarket skewer rack, which turned out to be too long for my air fryer.
It cooks food faster than my regular oven.
Most things come out just right and taste great.
It doesn’t heat up your house in the summer, like a regular oven.
The timer has started to mess up. Sometimes just before finishing the time will go from 1 minute to 59 minutes or 4 minutes to 59 minutes. You have to stay in the kitchen and watch it.
Foods occasionally get too dark or crispy. This is my fault, because I didn’t convert the oven time correctly, not the air fryer’s fault.
It is a lot smaller than a regular oven. It may not be convenient for large families.
I have looked for similar products and when this one stops working, I will probably buy a Kalorik Air Fryer. The Kalorik Air Fryer seems to be very comparable to this one, but comes with more accessories. It includes the rotating skewer rack, rotisserie spit, 2-in-1 baking tray and rotisserie stand. Looks like Kalorik no longer makes the 6 quart size, but they still offer a 10 quart size.
You may be wondering why I am going on about a product that no longer exists. I really like this air fryer and hope to still be able to buy a Kalorik one after this one stops working. I hope the manufacturers will take notice and continue to make these air fryers. My husband and I joke that every time we find a product we really like, they stop making it. This has happened to us several times now.
See Amazon links below for the 6 quart and 10 quart Kalorik Air Fryers.
