ANKO AO 8606 Air Fryer Oven
I bought this unit for my wife, we used it once and then it would not turn on. It worked great the first time but now you plug it in and the light indicator flashes and then goes out and you cant turn it on using the electronic panel the power button is lite but nothing. Frustrating to say the least. Not recommended. Leave on shelf.

Don’t waste your time or money
Purchased unit online back in August 2020. Worked great to begin with. In March 2021 we pulled it off the shelf to cook chips. Loaded the basket as we always do, set the machine and went about preparing the rest of our meal. After about 5 minutes the machine began making a funny noise and the basket was no longer rotating. We stopped it and pulled the basket out but couldn’t see anything wrong. We replaced the basket but it would only turn approximately 1/4 of a turn then stop turning, then turn a bit more and stop again. I along with others he...re on product review will be returning the defective unit to Kmart for a full refund. I set about looking for the brands (Anko) origins only to find that it is cheap Chinese rubbish that Kmart have chosen and market as their preferred brand. So I would tell anyone thinking of buying an Anko brand product to think twice before spending their hard earned dollar, because they will only be disappointed at the end of the day.

1 x upset wife
After using it once, the display panel would not power up again, Returned to Kmart the day after & got a replacement unit thanks to the helpful staff.
On returning home we plugged the replacement unit in & the display unit flashes on & off while also making a beeping noise. Are these items quality controlled! Or are we just unlucky getting 2 faulty units in a row. Sorry Kmart but I will be returning tomorrow for a full refund.

Lasted 10 months was good while it lasted :-(
I loved the AF when purchased and used it 3-4 times a week, no problems really, annoying door keeps falling/coming off, then one night simply stopped, cooked a piece of fish, removed from AF, put in a basket of chips and then wouldn't turn on, took it back for a refund yesterday, bought a Kogan one which was on special and took out an extra 3 year warranty. Looks similar to Kmart one but has an extra basket and a kebab rack and forks.

Waited ages to get one of these air fryers. I particularly wanted to use the rotisserie. I was quite happy with the way it cooked the chicken but had to cut off the legs as the manual states not to cook a chicken larger than 1kg. Impossible to find one that small. I used it once, the next day it would only switch on the light and after nearly an hour of switching off and back on, I gave up. The problem I believe is in the electronic system

Love this air fryer, use it everyday.
This Air Fryer is a gem, it does what it should, cooks or heats anything that I need to my liking, is easy to operate, and is a complete pleasure to use, cant fault it.

No good for dehydrating food, and it hard to get cake pans that fit, but I've cooked steak, salmon,chips, potato bake, and banana cake (photo included ) It's idea for singles and couples. Love mine

Was brilliant until it just stopped.
I bought this 3:1 kmart oven last March2020 & loved it, used it a couple of timesca week, was a bit noisey, was quicker than turning on the main oven especially in summer, now in Jan 2021 it has just stopped, I turned it on it beeped & turned off, I'm not best impressed. It has not been abused, will see what kmart have to say as it's still in the 1year warranty period, but I don't have the receipt.

This is my first , $129 why not give it a try. So far I’ve cooked a chicken roast that was just beautiful. I also cooked a roast pork with crackling but I found the crackling really hard, I’m not sure if I should’ve left the roast pork in the fridge for the night to dry out before I cooked it, maybe this was my mistake, I made peanut brownies last night ,about to get up and try one for breakfast. I also did crumb lamb cutlets, they were beautiful. I did purchase some Olive oil spray which I think has made a difference.
So far I’m super impresse...

Have tried cooking various types of foods in the AF and all come out extremely dry even with spraying oil. Often the food on the outside of the tray is burnt whilst the inside is still raw. The basket does not make decent chips, what I have made was not worth eating! I tried cooking 3 trays of chips and it took 40 minutes and some were burnt and some were raw even though I rotated the trays numerous times! Wishing I had never purchased it! Do not buy!!!

Good until it blew up
I loved my AF until about 2 months in it blew up, started blinking and beeping and just gave up. Similar to past reviews the rotis function seems to blow the motor or something.

Stopped working after a month and I only ever used it once or twice a week. Don't buy. Spend the extra money and buy a brand name that might last longer. Disappointed!

WFPB vegan means no oil.
Crispy, delicious chips in fifteen minutes. Moist falafels, sensational buffalo cauli wings, tofu ended up amazing, a real mouthful, like a meaty biteful. Easy to use, clean, programme at the push of a button. Nice aesthetically too. Love that you can have crumbed food minus the oil. None needed.

Not for baking cakes. Only has top element.
Good: Makes good chicken drumsticks. Is a fraction of the price others are selling the same model. Looks cute if that's important to you.
Bad: Only heats top of food when using a non mesh tray. Cakes are disasters as the fan can't be turned off and there is only a top element so the bottoms are always uncooked and the tops deformed like Trump's hair in a gale. Too small. The multiple shelves simultaneously used in the photo is a fantasy: Bottom shelves remain cool so rotating shelves is necessary and not for the lazy. Door comes off hinge occas...

A bit disappointed
I opted for the Kmart air fryer oven based on the reviews and the fact that I wanted something that could cook on multiple trays. Maybe I had high hopes. The Kmart air fryer is smaller than advertised and I found it to cook more like a regular oven than an air fryer. Although it has 3 separate trays, you can't really use them all at once as food doesn’t cook evenly. Even with the fan blasting heat around a single tray the food doesn’t cook on the underside.
Additionally I've used 3 of the preset programmes and each one overcooked my food. Over...
