The purchase I never regret making
This is my first airfyer and to be honest, I wasn't quite sure if it would serve me well or it would be just another following-the-hype purchase. My friend just grabbed it and put it in my trolley while I stood there n Aldi weighing whether to buy it or not. While I was thinking, the rest of the air fryers were gone in a split second! Dint know it was a much sought after item during Saturday Special Buy. Was just there to get cheap avo on sale. I would have regret big time if I decided not to buy it. I've stopped frying anything because this gi...ves me the exact crunch and crisp a deep-fry would give. Even non-fat items like Coles springroll turn out crispy. Roasted a whole chicken in and oh boy, the skin was perfectly brown (you need to adjust the temp slightly lower because it will be near the coil), and the meat was just so juicy! i've in fact stopped using my oven cos I think this airfryer is more efficient in terms of timing and heat distribution. Cleaning-wise, if you have deep large sink, it will be nice. Mine is a small one so it is a bit of a challenge. We usually just wash it in the laundry sink. The trick that I use is to to always put baking sheet whenever I use it to minimize cleaning. The food still turn out perfect everytime.
Aldi 8ltr Air Fryer
Bought in May 2020 and after a couple of uses and careful cleaning the non stick coating in the basket is coming off. Not happy with this product as didn't last long.
Best $99 spent
Purchased this apart of the special buys in May. I was always sceptical about buying one but it is definitely worth it! Cooks with the same quality and taste as it would in the oven but in half the time. Great for snack food and roasts and great that it doesn't require much oil if you choose to use it

Big capacity and good price
I got this product when it went on sale a few months back. I have always wanted a big air fryer since we have a big family to feed. This product suits our family perfectly. This is the first time I used an air fryer and it was quick, convenient and healthy since I hardly used oil. I am happy with this product overall!
Best thing i have ever bought
Love this airfryer havnt cooked on my stove since i bought it , just wish you could buy racks and other accessories to use in it , so you could lift food of the bottom
Worked great for the first 2 uses! Had people over and decided to do some chips in it and of course the fan doesnt work and cook anything. Making the thing useless!
Purchased in April 2020 for A$99.00.

Functionality VS hyped Marketing, budget fryer wins
have been waiting for the past 3 years to buy an airfryer. our friends recommended the philips air fryer. i just couldnt justify the price tag, for what is in fact a portable convection oven which it really is. What did push me into getting this was the price tag, plus having recently installed solar at home, this would be the perfect load dump when making free energy.
overall, quite happy with the product, great that ALDI went with an 8 L minimum sizing on this air fryer, anything smaller just wouldnt make sense in a 5 person house hold. Opt...imum frying, i did have to interrupt the process, to just toss the meat about, but i was surprised at how awesome the chicken fries ended up.. overall no regrets, Great price, Great value for money , a fraction of the cost of the big names in this space. and i get a 1 year warranty, Thanks ALDI for making this available to Aussie families, great work i read a previous review about a fragile Handle, i do agree that , the handle could be a bit more sturdier, i do support the tray, when i remove it, just to ensure that the whole body has enough support and so that there aint too much strain on the handle mechanism, i am sure if the handle did break, ALDI would provide a refund, and then i would be without an Air fryer, which aint optimum. perhaps being a bit more careful will give it the longevity that is expected on the hardware. i just cant get over the space available, really awesome.
We bought this item about 13 months ago......this week the handle broke in half and my wife had to wrap oodles of sellotape to keep it in place. Next week we will buying a better suitable air fryer.
Aldi air fryer
The Aldi air fryer is amazing. It cooks the best fish and chips. And no oil. I would recommend this air fryer for a family. Chips cook so crunchy.
Very with my purchase
Purchased in April 2019 at Aldi kawana.
I had previously purchased a Phillips XL airfryer and loved it, but I found it a little small. I bought TWO Aldi airfryers on the same day and BOTH failed at their first use. I returned both, had one refunded and one replaced. The replaced one is very temperamental and doesn't like to cook a whole chook for 30 minutes. Opening the drawer causes the overheat thermostat to kick in and shut down the fryer. Then it sulks for 15 minutes until it cools enough for the thermostat to restart. After only 2 months of careful use the coating on the bottom...of the fryer basket is more than 50% worn away. I am coping with this by placing silicone baking paper on the bottom of the basket. I hope I haven't eaten the coating which has gone missing. I have bitten the bullet and bought the Phillips XXL to compliment my original Phillips XL, and I cant think why I didn't just buy the better quality Phillips XXL to start with, there is NO COMPARISON in terms of quality, evenness of heat and ease of cleaning of the Phillips compared to the cheaper copy versions.
What an absolute treasure
Best invention ever, lucky I brought this off recommendation from in-laws, (super jelly that ours was an 8L) new house has no oben still waiting, but this bad boy is amazing, so quick and perfect evertime, only problem is I can't choose what's for dinner every night :) oh did I mention you can cook a WHOLE pizza in it PERFECTLY. For 99 bucks, I really hope it lasts!!
Purchased in May 2019.
Questions & Answers

We’re is serial number
can it be used as a dehydrator
I don't know Tad, but it's really the same as a normal Oven fan forced on not. You can dry things in an oven but why not ring the After Sales Support. I will be interested to find out too.i have never used a Dehydrator. My daughter has one just can't question her about it at present as she's in the USA, sleeping now.
