Air Fryer Issues. What are the common problems?

This article will look at some of the common problems and complaints with Air Fryers. We’ll also look at what we think is the best air fryer and how to use an air fryer. The main issues with Air Fryers are: 1) Temperature, 2) Cleaning and 3) Capacity. Some other issues include: noise, reliability, warranty and customer service.

1)Temperatures

The temperature that most air fryers heat up to is too low for cooking certain things well (fried chicken wings). Without a doubt, this makes them unsuitable for cooking chicken in any form (wings, legs or breasts). Generally speaking it takes roughly twice as long to cook food when using an airfryer than when using a deep fryer. The temperature inside the air fryer is around 170 degrees Celsius, which makes it difficult to get good results.

2)Cleaning the basket and tray

The baskets and trays on most air fryers are non-stick and very difficult to clean. Oil gets baked onto them even though they’re non-stick, making cleaning almost impossible without using abrasive cleaners that can damage the surface of the basket and tray.

3)Capacity and Size of Air Fryers

Most airfryers have a relatively small capacity compared with other similar products, so you will only be able to cook about 1 kg of food at a time in most cases. This can be annoying if you plan on hosting large dinner parties for friends and family.

4)Air fryers are noisy

Almost all air fryers make a high-pitched noise when they’re on, which is very irritating if you like to watch the television or listen to music while cooking.

5)Reliability of Air Fryers

Air Fryers have many parts that break down frequently, including heating elements breaking after just one year of use (yes, just 1 year). The baskets inside some units warp out of shape easily and fall apart, so buying your unit from a good manufacturer becomes important because trying to get replacements can be very difficult. Other manufacturers don’t even offer replacement parts at all, so you’ll spend more money having your entire unit replaced than it would cost to buy a replacement basket from a third-party manufacturer. Warranty is also an issue – most warranties don’t cover the heating element, so if your unit breaks down in that area you’ll have to pay for repairs or a new unit.
