Cuts down cooking time
Cooks and crisps up food nicely
Painless clean up
But for the door not closing it was perfectly fine!
I bought this air fryer on the back of hearing good reviews so I thought I'd give it a go given it was my first air fryer and this one is not expensive. It worked really well until I had to turn the meat or chips half way through the cooking time. It was near on impossible to get back in and although I could in the end, I'm not sure I could be bothered with this happening all the time. I gave it three attempts and had the same problem each time, so back it went. Further product reviews is that because it's plastic, once it heats up, it chan...ges shape and therefore makes it difficult to go back into place. Wish I had read the reviews more before before purchase. Other than the door not closing when heated, it was fine and cooked the food well. I'm now looking at another one and will avoid the plastic fantastic.

Tried to use but couldn't
Turned on my airfryer, excited to use for the first time but the LED screen was flickering. My husband (who has a electrical background) said that if I moved the electrical cord he bets the screen will go completely blank- he was right! I touched the cord the LED screen went blank, then back on, then dim, then blank etc The connection is dodgy and I have no confidence in this product now. I'm returning it at the weekend for a refund.

Drawer gets stuck
Once the unit is heated I found the drawer will no slide back into place. Assuming expansion is causing the problems, this should never be an issue. I am very disappoinyed with anko brand and will be returning this unit for a refund.

Impossible to replace basket when hot!
After reading many positive reviews, I bought this with some Christmas money from my parents and expected wonders. My wife was horrified by its size and how much space it would take up in our modestly sized kitchen. I assured her there would be no looking back given the convenience and health benefits of air-frying.
However, I am sorely disappointed by this product. On its maiden cooking voyage - with 500 grams of frozen shoestring fries - I pulled the basket out to inspect the fries after 10 minutes and it proved totally impossible to replace ...

Great at first, not over time.
In the beginning, out of the box this is a great product for the price. Over time however it’s cheapness comes through:
- The basket separates from the handle
- The nonstick coating comes off from the basket base
- The plastic on the handle starts to peel
There’s also just strange limits like 30
Minute timers (if you are roasting above 30 mins you have to keep coming back), the basket getting stuck sliding in and out as the plastic warps a little, no proper on/off switch.
For the price it’s fine but if you use it regularly you’ll notice it start to break down. Our second basket has broken again and we’re just going to buy a Ninja Foodi.

Very poor performance
Bought this and the 2nd time I used it the E1 error kep flashing. It would heat for 3 minutes and turn off. No mention in user guide but googled and it said it was a wiring error. Took back yo Kmart and was refunded.

Was amazing NOW NOT
My 3.2L was amazing bought in April and was doing exactly as it was supposed to do with use almost daily and cleaning was easy and the non stick was all still intact but this last month After not changing the way I use it or the position ( on a wooden chopping board to protect my bench) after around three minutes it stops working and has E1 come up on digital screen I can’t find anything that mentions this after around ten minutes it is then able to start again but most times it will come up with the same error E1 and it has to cool down again very disappointing after such a great start I assume E1 May mean it’s overheating but it’s put me off what I had high Hope was going to be a great kitchen gadget

Kmart Anko 3.2 Lt AIR FRYER - Second one that doesn’t work - not impressed
I returned my first one because it did not work. It was hard to exchange because of lack of product but eventually they had more so I got another one at Kmart.
This one worked for less than a month - then it stopped working.
Now we are under Covid stage 4 restrictions in Victoria it is hard to get a refund.
But I am seriously not impressed. How can we get a 2 out of 2 fail?
What sort of quality control are we talking about?
Not to mention all the hassle. Kmart not impressed.

So hard to clean the basket...
Love the function and results but the basket cleaning...man, it’s hard! It almost seems like our basket hasn’t got a non stick coating. The base is fine, obviously non stick and a breeze to clean but the basket itself need multiple goes before all the bits are gone.
I’ve just discovered that bicarbonate soda and vinegar seems the most effective.
For the price, it’s a great appliance. Perfect steaks, small roasts, vegetables, frozen foods etc etc.
I do spray with non stick cooking spray but that’s from habit - doesn’t really make much differenc...

Good Air Fryer.
Use it every day, however, the non -stick surface has all but disappeared, which makes cleaning hard. This happened after about six months of use. Plastic lug on the sealing shield broke off also. Still works fine and still use it every day.

I really wanted to love this product. I wanted to say it cheap and good but I can't. It's cheap but garbage. The non stick coated doesn't last and the metal bits have all rusted. Terrible product. Do not buy.

Cheap and nasty - touchscreen non responsive
The unit powers up but the touchscreen is unresponsive. Total waste of money and an inconvenience to have to pack it all up and return it. K-Mart would not give me a refund either!

3.2 K Mart air fryer
Purchased in November 2019 , used it every day and after about three months it died. As at this moment not sure if I trust to buy another one, even a different brand
Purchased in November 2019 for $69.00.
This is great for small households.
We purchased it from Kmart and as we are a family of 2, it works perfect for us. We mainly use it to fry chicken drumsticks, potato chips . The product is very easy to use and clean.
