Gave up after 2!!
Yes, the food cooked beautifully, so long as I knew exactly the right time to cook it for, as once the machine got hot, and I wanted to check how the food was doing, I couldn't get the basket back in until the whole thing had cooled down, about half an hour!!! Did return it and gave another machine a try but that one was exactly the same, basket wouldn't go back into the machine once it was hot, so I gave up, took it back and got my money back. That was the best part about Kmart, I was given my money back, no trouble at all.
Do not recommend
Some products at Kmart are great. But the air fryers are not even close to good. I currently am on my THIRD 5.3 litre air fryer in less than a year. 1st one had holes in the bottom basket where screws should have been. 2nd one just stopped cooking foods. And the one I now have every time I use it my power is shorted, and flips the electric fuses. Not happy at all!!! Do not recommend what so ever. I now have to find another alternative.
I'm amazed at the amount of things I can cook in this... Including scalloped patatoes in 20-30 minutes... I'm extremely happy with this product and would recommend it to everyone. I'm even more impressed with how the manual takes out the guess work with what to cook and how long for. Roast spuds are the fluffiest and best I've ever tasted in my 36 laps around the sun! :D
Love my anko air fryer
I love my anko air fryer but the non stick coating is coming off. Where can I purchase another basket from. Other than that it’s great best present I ever received
Purchased in January 2020 for $80.00.
Best out there and cheap
This unit will easily cook anything from roasted pine nuts to a whole chicken. Make sure you don't buy the smaller version. Easy to clean, and operate. Cost effective, low fat cooking. My partner can't live without it.
Can't live without it, changed my diet forever
I adore this machine, it has not let me down in the 1 year I have had it, and I have used it almost every single day.
It heats up quickly, cools down relatively quickly, is not burning hot to touch while on, and very very easy to clean!
It is heavy, bulky and does take up a bit of room on the bench but I store it on the pantry shelf and It's been no issue.
I cook marinated chicken, potato jewels, steak, lamb racks, ribs and roast chickens in this has gotten it right every time. It is easy to over cook it, and needs to be cleaned fairly regula...rly or the build up will take a lot of effort to get off!! A worthy investment. Some of the phillips air fryer attachments fit inside and I love the variance to my food and diet I've enjoyed since purchasing
works well does what its supposed to
Works great, chips, roasts, all turned out really good. Washing is not that easy, as you can't use a scourer. Otherwise really good machine. Product is really easy to use, no complicated buttons. Pretty much two manual dials, very clear.
Would have burnt our house down
We have used air fryers for 2 years particularly the $69 Kmart version with the digital readout which works great the only thing is it is a little too small for when we had guests.
So, we purchased this larger model from kmart , the first time use we followed the same procedure and temp settings as the smaller model with a small lamb roast we have done many times before with the smaller model.
No one was in the kitchen when after 5 minutes the smoke alarm went off , the kitchen was full of smoke it was pouring out of the fryer , turning off the...

Would not like to be without it
I upgraded from the Anko 3.2ltr, and have found the 5.3litr Air Fryer, as good as the Anko 3.2ltr but with more advantages. Still bring the cooker to temp before putting in the food, Chips and Potatoes put in bag with salt and oil then shake, empty into the basket and cook, don't forget to shake the basket a few times. Cooked a whole chicken in it, came out great, tasted nice.
Cleaning no problem, after cooking chips/roast potatoes, just wipe with a damp cloth. For baked on sugary residue, let the enzymes clean it for you, soaking in a enzyme clothes washing liquid, such as Biozet and warm water, then use nylon dish brush, works for me

Good so far, except for the fiddly drawer
I have only had this item for a short while and so far I've cooked whole roast chicken, chicken tenders, chips and beef jerky, all of which cooked well and evenly. The only criticism is that the drawer is very hard to get back in when the unit is hot. During cooking the food needs to be checked and moved around but the drawer is really hard to get back in. At first I thought there was some packaging stuck in it, but I found that its a common problem. It takes a lot of jiggling to get the drawer back in. Otherwise, happy so far

Used it 5 times already started falling apart
I bought this fryer about a month ago from Kmart, when it arrived first thing I realised was the tray was very fiddly but that didn't bother me much.
Cooked maybe 5 or 6 meals, food come out really nice, it's done a good job. However, today I realised the plastic part on the tray has started to crack and one of the screws of the metal has come out. I know it's cheaper than other brands in the market but it shouldn't be this unreliable.
this product is good because it cooks, but thats wheren the good ends..... This product is so unsafe and if i left some food in the airfryer for 15 minutes or more the whole house would most likley burn down. This product makes the whole house smokey, I can even see the smoke upstairs! I don't know if we got a broken one, but thats not the kind of service i want. Not to mention this is impossible to close. Overall a TERRIBLE product. I DO NOT RECCOMMEND!
Love it! Wouldn't be without one.
I love my airfryer. I have had it for nearly one year and use it at least 5 or 6 times a week. Easy to use and easy to clean. A healthy alternative to frying in oil and great to use on a hot day. The price is extremely reasonable. Would highly recommend.

Very convenient. Cooks food in minutes
I was not sure if air fryer will be of much use since we already had the traditional over. We bought the air fryer from K mart. But it is so so convenient. It literally cooks food in minutes. Chicken nuggets cook in less than 10 minutes. I am so happy with the purchase. AT only $80, this air fryer is a game changer. Highly recommended

Convenient and fast
This airfryer is very convenient for preparing quick meals especially frozen items such as chicken schnitzel, roast vegetables, chips and nuggets. The airfryer does a great job at making roast pork. The crackling is to die for. All you have to do is turn it on and set the temperature then you are free to do other things around the house. I find that food cooks quicker in the airfryer compared to the oven and tends to be crisper especially if you spray food with a tiny bit of oil prior. The airfryer will automatically switch off once the timer e...lapses which is also helpful for busy individuals. The airfryer basket can be placed into the dishwasher to clean which is great. One small con is that overtime the coating on the pan starts to fall off. We now use a baking sheet liner on the tray to prevent further damage to the pan as they don’t sell replacement accessories.

Cooks a bit unevenly
A good starter air fryer, and good for the basics like chips. The contents cook unevenly, you need to shake the basket during cooking a lot to cook everything consistently.
Quick & reliable -great for kids
Very quick for kids
Great product when your short of time
Easy snacks and kids can use too
Great for anything frozen and tastes amazing . I would recommended this to anyone who has kids and those who don’t have time
You won’t regret it
Love this air fryer! I heard many great things about this air fryer but was skeptic at first. Works a charm & makes me feel less guilty eating chicken nuggets or chips.
Purchased in June 2020.
Love it! We use it every day.
We love our air fryer, have used it every day since we bought it. It is perfect for cooking just about anything you can find in the frozen food aisle.

Questions & Answers
Manual says green light goes off when required temp is reached. Mine goes on and off a number of times throughout cooking. Is this normal?. I found the drawer difficult to put back in but if you tilt it like putting drawers in a cupboard it slides in readily
I think the light goes off whenever the correct temperature is reached. I've returned mine anyway as the drawer just wouldn't go back in no matter how we tried on both of those that I had (I returned it once and they gave me another one to try but it had the same problem.) Got my money back in the end and bought another make and am completely happy with it. (It was much more expensive though)
Why does my air fryer drawer not go back in sometimes when I take it out to turn the food
