Don't expect it to last!
Purchased the Air Fryer Oven at the end of 2019 after hearing lots of hype of how amazing the product was. After about 4 months the door came off (like many previous reviews) and then within the year it stopped working altogether. It really is junk and you will be lucky if you get more than 12 months out of it.

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

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

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

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!!!

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!

The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
I love that the air fryer produces crispy food! my family thinks the chicken i make in it is better than kfc!
We love that it doesn't heat up the whole house in summer like a normal oven would.
Only annoying thing is the door comes off randomly sometimes, and i wish there were more trays to fit more food in! It can also be a bit tricky to get the rotisserie tool out

not for the boring cook
I think I was being a bit adventurous when I got this, I really should have just got the standard air fryer but I’m a sucker for hype.
The food cooks amazing in it, but in saying that I cook the standard hot chips or party pies. Nothing spectacular.
I tried using the dehydrator to make potato chips but it was too time consuming and I wasn’t really happy with the outcome, so i haven’t been adventurous enough to try again.
Cleaning is as easy as wiping it over with a sponge. Like an oven use some foil and you’re set.

Questions & Answers
Can you roast in this model
Yes you can. Just make sure it's not too heavy. I do boneless lamb and beef regularly.
How to cook roast chicken
Make sure the chicken is small and hollowed out. Place the spindle of the rotisserie fork though the middle of the chicken and then secure it with the clamp so it stabs on opposite ends. Put it in the oven where the pole inserts and press the rotation button to cook for 40 min.
Hi folks, I’m seeking feedback on power consumption of the Kmart 3-in-1 AF. The product rating (in user manual and as listed here) is 1800 watts but I noticed last night my smart meter indicated the power drain was more than double that. I got the AF to save money on power bills but it’s looking like it uses nearly as much electricity as our 900mm oven (?!)
Unlikely to be more than 1800 watts as the maximum possible is 2400 watts. It is not using 1800W all the time as the element cycles on and off to maintain temperature.
I just ran a test with a meter and continuous power consumption is 1770 watts at 200 degrees.
