Multi-functional cooking appliance
Doesn't always function smoothly
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

3 months and kaput
Bought it three mths ago. Was working, then beep. Then no power. It’s now landfill. I really dislike when rubbish is imported. Very poor product. Many have had same issue

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!!!

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!

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...

Dehydrator part of unit
dehydrator is programmed for 4 hours. After 2 hours the time on the face goes back to 2 hours and 10 min. to go.. Then at 22 min to go it went back to 2 hours. What is that.

Purchased this loved most of the functions, but the air fryer basket wouldn't turn, returned it to Kmart with no problem. Asked for a raincheck to get another when they had one available. Got a replacement one last week, used it once to make chips in the air fryer basket and the basket turned but very slowly and you could only put a few chips in, and then it stopped turning. Will be returning for a refund and get something else. If they can sort out the motor problems for the rotation it would be a very good cooker.

Rotisserie could be better
Love it but rotisserie keeps stopping. I returned it and after 2 months have to return it once again. Easy to clean and I do like the way it cooks.

I was so excited to buy my air fryer I read the instructions the key pad lit up briefly the only thing showing on the key screen was the power and light button after a while the light button went off but I could not get the power button to work I don’t know if I missed some thing or if it was faulty I took it back and got my money back when they get more in I will definitely buy another one I still have high hopes for the next one

overall it works well. The quiche I bake in pie tins are really great and the air frying function works well. The fan itself appears to have been designed by Boeing as it absolutely blasts everything around which making dehydrating very difficult. I put a second rack on top of the first to keep things from flying around.
The racks themselves are flimsy and difficult to handle. It would be in Kmart's best interest to craft sturdier ones, I would even buy them as an extra if they did. The oven size is small. The racks measure 26L x 23W and most ...
