Fantastic, but cheapened off
This is a copy of a Sunbeam which almost does the same job. Overall is a fantastic idea of convetion with infrared cooking lamp. Sadly, build quality of unit is cheapened off as its flimsy plastic build base frame warps to extent that glass bowl leaks (see picture) convected air at its rear. Feet are clearly tacked on to help with slip off the bench issues, but also make this leak issue worse. Cooking is great as long as you learn to be creative and work within its limits. However its basic build is very poor, fans out of balance (2 units not s...tright on shaft as new!) shaking whole unit and just even 1year, therostat died. Kogan wont help. Kogan lets the concept of this product down, by skimping on quality build. Two of these units purchased have identical issues execpt one theromstat is ok. Very disappointing Kogan.
Makes cooking so easy
Very impressed with this 12L rotary air fryer. Cooks a whole chicken on the rotisserie attachment, cooks crunchy wedges and chips in the basket attachment. Cooks crumbed chops and chicken to a perfect crunch without being oily. And bought it when it was on special so great value for money

Dont like it
I found it difficult to assemble, instructions poor, recipe timings totally inaccurate. very disapointed. I intend to send it back and dont care if they refund me or not, i bought this brand of fryer because of the very good breadmaker purchased earlier. The fryer is not recommended
Purchased in May 2020 for A$90.00.

Undecided. Get it if you have space in the kitchen.
We used it to fry sweet potato fries and it came out well. No complains. It did what it is suppose to do. It is bulky and takes up a lot of space in the kitchen though.

Bought this during a sale . Pretty Convenient to have around to cook stuff like spring rolls and garlic bread. Easy to clean and has multiple fixtures to roast chicken with a skewer (supplied). The plastic dial is probably not the best and feels a bit cheap. The unit itself is a bit bulky but on the flip side is quite big inside to get more done

This is my First air fryer purchase, so don't really have a point of reference to compare it with. Pretty decent buid quality, it is a bit bulky but not very heavy as such.
We tried cooking frozen spring rolls and they came up better than fried rolls in less than 15 minutes. Definitely healthier than oil. Also tried garlic bread and fries.. they all came out cooked through.
Easy to clean and also has a rotary skewer function to roast chicken as you would on a bbq. Got it during a sale, a good buy!
Quality is appallingly bad. Looks ok at first but can’t handle the rigours of regular use
The Air Fryer states it can do a multitude of jobs. It comes with a rotisserie that is suitable for perhaps a Quail. There is nowhere near enough clearance to cook a real sized chicken with the rotisserie . It also comes with a rotating CHIP/ Fries basket. this was novel at first glance. The manual says you can cook the chips in no time...10 minutes. It’s true if you put half a handful of chips in it. Otherwise it takes a good 20-30 minutes to cook a real serve of chips and even then they aren’t crispy. The racks are very very flimsy. ...If you wash up with a bit of vigour, the feet snap clean off! I purchased this to supplement an existing Sunbeam Turbo Oven. The Sunbeam is around 6 years old and still going strong. Cost less than this pretend “air fryer”. Do yourself a favour and save your money. It looks cheap in real life...and it is like a “Reject Shop” product, but three time the price. It does cook frozen pies and chicken tenders ok. So does the Sunbeam at around half the price! It should be called a Turbo/Convection oven, not an air fryer.
Bit disappointed with this air fryer, I bought it to replace my Phillips Air Fryer. The chips came out after 15 min at 250o.C a bit raw. Maybe, I should leave them in for 20-25 min.
Purchased in March 2019.
I think the kogan air fryer is a good buy, afforadle, easy to clean, safe, quick to heat up and quick to cook food,I think its healthier ,my food does not come with the added fats and oils that I dont need, I have lost weight using this device,. Cooks thorough and don't have to clean much

Kind of works - doesn't include everything you neeed.
Like all air fryers, you need to learn the subtleties of this one in order to get the best out of it. It works really well for reheating pizza or doing spring rolls etc. What is disappointing is when you go to the recipes in the manual it tells you to use the frying basket or frying pan. They aren't included with the air fryer and you can't buy them separately from Kogan. When I contacted Kogan the response was that they were not included and just go buy your own from the shop. Clearly, there's a mess up in the production process - 2 key b...its not included but the manual tells you to use them. It's not like you can go out and buy a frying basket or a frying pan which is specially designed to fit in the air fryer either - for a start they can't have a handle. I wouldn't recommend buying this product. Spend a bit more and get something which has better equipment. I would finish with the fact that the product itself has a really cheap plastic feel to it and without the lid down it is almost off balance - I don't think it would be hard for it to tip over and smash the glass outer. That and Kogan's response - it's not included go buy your own from the shop... why make a manual that tells you to use things it doesn't have? Illogical.
I purchased the Kogan 12L Rotary Fryer in May as a gift for somebody and was then informed via an email after paying for it that it wouldn't be shipped until the 27th of June... I understand accidents happen, however it is the sole responsibility of the company to monitor its stock availability and be transparent about this with customers. Had I known it was going to arrive two months after I paid for it I would have looked at alternatives as it was a gift for my Mum's 50th birthday which has now been and gone and her gift is still nowhere to be seen, with no expected arrival date provided either. I contacted Kogan and expressed my disappointment on the issue and nothing has changed. Disappointing.
