Loving it

We just purchased the Sunbeam for our shared Xmas gift. No experience with air fryers! We are loving this appliance. I have to adjust the time as recommended by the recipes, but that is too be expected.

We have plenty of new recipes to try out. So far we have tried potato wedges, frozen prawns, chicken thighs... You know. Basics. Hit each for 6! Show details ·  1

Very happy- it does a great job

Got this benchtop appliance because heating the wall oven for a serve of chips annoys me. More than happy with the product....wonderfully crisp fish and chips for two, best battered calamari !!! Easy to clean, no complaints so far. Show details

Has a strange taste and smell

Sounds odd but food tastes and smells like disinfectant, almost like antiseptic which is very strange.

Cleaned it thoroughly several times and no difference. Not sure what the issue could be, I don’t think I kept the receipt either else I would try and return it. Show details

Must have accessories

In reply to the above, I had mine Christmas 2020 and have not looked back since. Just a small hint, if your takeaway overloads the fries, freeze them down in portions and reheat on 200 degrees for 5 minutes max, shake the basket half way. The fries are better after the second fry crispy and no added oil is needed. Show details

Buyer Beware

I received this air fryer as a gift this Christmas and was very excited to try it out as I have heard good things about air fryers. Boy was I wrong! After my second attempt at cooking oven baked fries in the air fryer and it not cooking them in over an hour I realised that the fan does not work. I will be returning this under warranty ASAP but I am very surprised that a brand new product straight out the box does not work. It's either very poorly made or Sunbeam has no quality control.
Do not buy this air fryer. Show details

Fan Stopped Working after 3 months

Worked great for first three months then suddenly the fan stopped fanning! Had to wait for post pandemic lockdown to ease before returning it to Hardly Normal. A bit disappointing all round. Show details

Basket coating peeling

The coating of the basket has started to come off just after a few uses, and its less than 1 years old (and continues to peel). As an owner of other non-stick appliances, the cleaning and maintenance has been taken with care.

Worrying and disappointing in that the coating is another color so it looks completely unpleasant. Show details

Works when it wants to!

We have the same problem as Helen Smith, it will only work (when it wants to)! When you slam the draw closed over and over in the hope it works. Pretty disappointing! Refuse to throw it away though as it’s not that old! When it does work it is great!! Show details

Fryer only starts intermittently

I am so disappointed that the appliance I bought will only start when I slam the drawer shut over and over! I’m sure this can’t be right but that has been my experience so far It usually puts me off using it because it is so frustrating.  Show details

DuraCeramic basket isn't very durable

We received the air fryer as a gift last Christmas (2019). After 9 months of use the coating in the basket peeled. We own a lot of non-stick products and I can assure you it was not misused. When I contacted Sunbeam I was told they don't have any replacement baskets and sent me a link for support agents so I could buy one.

The air fryer works fabulously but don't believe the marketing about the durability of the basket. I would have thought it would have come with some warranty.

Very good, especially for the price

Bought this purely out of curiosity, and turns out it was money well spent. Compact, clean because everything is kept inside the unit, easy to use, and makes skinless chicken breasts not merely edible but actually enjoyable. Better than a grill, as more or less does both sides at once and doesn't seem to dry meat out as much. Show details

Great air fryer

We received this as a gift and have used it a lot in the last 6 months. It's easy to cook with thought a touch hard to clean, often having to soak it overnight to clean it properly. Show details

Excellent air fryer

Excellent air fryer. Easy to use and tastes like normal grilled in oven. I would recommend this air fryer anytime. Easy to clean as well . My whole family loved the tandoori chicken I made in the air fryer. Show details

Questions & Answers

Frequently Asked Questions about Sunbeam Copper Infused DuraCeramic

How can I prevent food sticking to the coating?

Seasoning your DuraCeramic coating will help you get superior food release and easy clean-up. Follow these steps to season your air fryer.

  1. Spread 1 tablespoon of canola or vegetable oil onto the base and sides of the basket with a paper towel or soft cloth to evenly coat the cooking surface.
  2. Heat on 150°C for 10 minutes or until starts to smoke.
  3. Turn the air fryer off. Let it cool down to room temperature and wipe away excess oil. Do not wash.
  4. Repeat the seasoning process regularly for optimum performance.

How can I clean the Copper Infused DuraCeramic™ Air Fryer?

Please follow the below Care And Cleaning instructions:

  • Carefully wipe any oil spatter from the heating fan cover with kitchen paper. Wipe over the outer body with a clean, slightly damp cloth and dry.
  • Wash the removable cooking basket, and handle with warm soapy water using a cloth, sponge or non-abrasive brush. Dry completely before use or storage.
  • We recommend that you wash the inner basket by hand only, in order to preserve the Copper Infused DuraCeramic™ coating.
  • Stubborn food residue may be removed or reduced by rubbing the ceramic coating with a cream cleanser or a paste of bicarbonate of soda and water using a clean cloth.

Is the Copper Infused DuraCeramic™ coating safe?

Yes! All of our products use a non-stick coating that is not Dupont Teflon. Our non-stick coating is safe when used for cooking. In addition, our electric products are designed to reach maximum temperatures well within limits that causes the non-stick coating to release fumes.

Why are my chips not crispy?

There could be many possible factors. Here are some solutions:

  • Wash potatoes thoroughly and dry before frying
  • Use fresh potatoes
  • Add slightly more oil
  • Cut potatoes into smaller piece

Where do I put the oil? On the food or in the bottom part of the machine?

No oil needed with an air fryer. However, just a tablespoon (or less) of oil can add an extra crunchy layer to your food. Add oil to your ingredients before putting them in the fryer. Oil cannot be put inside the fryer basket.
