Was great when it worked
Lost use of the touch screen 1 year and 3 months in, 3 months after the warranty had expired. The store I purchased through could not assist in replacing and called TV shop and they said the part that needed replacing could not be replaced and would not be able to help with a replacement. For the money I spent on it I would have expected it to have lasted longer than 1 year and 3 months. Really disappointed
Purchased in October 2019 at Harris Scarfe Physical Stores for $199.00.
E3 error- what this means? Should have at least given some ideas
It was good until it stopped working with an E3 code. Not easy to clean at all and no replacement parts. Not happy at all. Should have given us an idea or a fix
Purchased in May 2018 at TV Shop.
Would not buy again
Very dissatisfied with this product. Had to return the first one light didn’t work.
The door on this air fryer is very flimsy to say the least , tried tightening the screws in the door only to find they had been stripped. Opened the door as instructed to clean the glass and 2 of the little lugs that hold the screws were broken off. Inside the two glass sections of the door was filling with grease.
The shelves are also very stained and appear rusty.
I have only had the appliance for about 6 months I live alone so not over used and also I am 76 ...

Poor design of selection menu
The one I have is the discontinued one. COMPARED TO OTHER BRANDS It is hard to read, hard to select the function that you want, has less trays and hard to open the chip roller. Would not recommend taste the difference at all.
Purchased for $300.00.
Air fryer oven TTD
Four months later it stopped working, sparks flew and I thought it would explode. Lucky it has been discontinued but they sent this as a replacement. Not so lucky me, wasn’t told it was discontinued and basically forced to accept the air roaster because they refuse to give me a refund. Also have been told my warranty started when I received the original Air-Fryer so beware of all purchases. Have given it one star because I have to rate it
Purchased in April 2020 at Show TV Shop for $474.97.
Good for cooking but...
Bought from Harvey Norman couple months ago , the bulb was broken after using couple times I don’t think they would replace it just because the broken bulb. Now I just cook food without light . No problem with other functions at the moment.

Best appliance I have ever had
I have cooked and heated up almost everything in this. From pasta to cakes, steak, fish, roast and vegetables. The meat is juicy and no food has ever been dry and unsuitable to eat. It is very easy to clean. Can't do without it. Hanger had it for almost two years and use it at least twice a day
Purchased in May 2018 for $399.00.
not good quality
Cooked the food well but only used it about once a week and the fan failed on it, came up with a E3 error which i don't know what that means but considering we only had it 10 months and only used it 10-12 times i find it should have lasted a lot longer than that. would not recommend it .

Harassment over cancelled Taste the Difference Air fryer order
RE: Harassment over cancelled Taste the Difference Air fryer order
On April 21, 2020 I called the tel no as advertised on Taste the Difference on the TV Shop for the air fryer. I ordered the 2 L size. However after a few hours I cancelled the order as I was not sure whether I wanted the product. I have been harassed ever since by the seller of the product telling me that the item has already been shipped in 2 different days. I received 2 calls in two days April 22,23 2020 telling me that the item was already shipped. I have continue...d to inform them that the order has been cancelled a few hours after it has been ordered on the same day 21-4-2020. Another caller told me that he is in the Philippines who told me information which were incorrect and again told me that the product has already been shipped for which I responded that the order has been cancelled and if they still delivered the item that this is their problem.The person also asked me for my date of birth. I was very concerned as I used my credit card for the transaction. I did not give the person my date of birth. I am thankful that I have cancelled the order early on. This is the first time that I used TV shop and learned a lesson not to do it again. If the item is still delivered after the cancellation, I will refer the case to the Australian Consumer Affair .
Failed only after one year
The heating element failed in one year, got a warranty one and it failed at one year and 1 week.
Apparently the warranty doesn't extend to the replacement one.
WASTE of money
Purchased in February 2019 for $499.00.
Just out of warranty and nothing but issues.... repeatedly won't register the door is closed so won't work and steadily the issue has gotten worse and worse to the point I've gotta leave a brick on top to get it to weigh it down enough and now the handle has snapped off. For the amount you spend on the machine I really expected better quality. My Kmart cheapie is better than this!

I purchased one of these and had it for approximately 6 months until smoke started to come out the bottom of the appliance. After 6 weeks of unsuccessful contact with the company, I was advised that I would have to pay to get the thing back to them and if there was nothing wrong I would have to pay $150 fee. Guess What? I threw it to the tip and went and bought one from Harris Scarfe!

Excellent - while it lasted
For 14 months - an excellent product. I used it very frequently. After 14 months, the element blew. (12 month guarantee!) No replacement, no repairs. I had to throw it out.
Purchased in July 2018 at Harvey Norman.
I liked it while it lasted but the element is gone .. and that’s it $400 gone in 18 months
The air fryer cooked salmon and chicken the best meat did not like it
Cleaning was frustrating cause it does not allow parts that got greasy near the element to be cleaned properly

Best Kitchen Product ever!
I cook my family roast meat and vegetable in here mainly, it is fabulous, quick and the results are amazing, crispy potatoes and the crackle on the pork is the best I have ever had. While is is a little fiddly to clean it in no way distracts from my absolute love of this kitchen cooker.
Purchased in September 2017.
Loved it but very flimsy parts; bowl rusted, the element broke after 18 months. Cannot be fixed; no parts apparently. Do not buy! The technology is great but this is a rip off. Pricey too.

Good whilst it worked 13 months
My wife bought this product and we used it for about 13 months , the heating element failed , the digital read out failed . the basket hinge broke , very badly made , contacted the company we bought it from about parts , have been advised not available ,we cooked all types of food ,
Purchased in January 2018 for $500.00.
One use and broken!!!
We used this product for the first time last night to do some chips. The chips were awesome! Pity we can't say the same for the fryer!
The chip basket has a soldered hinged door. One use and the solder broke.
We had to drill holes in the basket so we could wire the door back together.
'Disappointed' and well and truly 'peeved' are very mild words for standard of this product.
However the one saving grace is I did not pay full price for it.
I bought it from someone who bought a treadmill and the fryer came as a free gift.
Not surprising they we...
Purchased in March 2019.
The element blew after 18 months and apparently I can't get the element replaced and non-stick surface came off the bottom nearly straight away and it's a two-handed operation to close it .. so way too expensive to replace.. I found another type online at 10 L same rotisserie $100 delivered to your door

No parts for "Taste the Difference" air roaster!
We loved our "Taste" for 21 months and used it almost every day.
Then, it stopped working and showed the error E1.
We contacted the distributor who advised that repairs were not available!
This is still the current model. We were under the impression that importers are obliged to provide parts for 5 years under consumer law.
We have submitted a report to the ACCC but have had no response yet.
Obviously, no one should purchase this product unless they are prepared to spend $380 for a one year guarantee.
