First I want to thank the NewAir company for sending me a sample of the Magic Chef 1.6 Quart Air Fryer to test out! Here is a video of my review:
In conclusion, I think after several uses the metal/plastic smell would go away, but I will have to update you on that at another time. As you saw in the video when it came to making a grilled cheese it was a struggle. It was only in there for less than five minutes and it was rock hard. It also did not toast evenly.
I feel like the best thing for this air fryer would be small fried foods. For example french fries, tator tots, mini hashbrowns and maybe egg rolls.
It cooked the mini hashbrowns very well plastic/metal taste aside. I am hoping that will go away. I haven’t had an issue like that with my other air fryers, so that is new to me.
I feel that they should make a specific cookbook for this snack machine type air fryer. The recipe book will come in handy for my other air fryer but not this one. It calls for certain temperatures and a lot more room would be needed for the book that came with this machine. The machine has no temperature gauge you can only set certain times like a microwave in a way which also made it very confusing.
I wish I knew what temp the machine was running out so I knew what I could cook in it. At this point, it is just kind of a guessing game and I can’t see using this for anything more than french fries. If I can get the taste of the machine to go away I would love to give this to my sister in law that works in an office. I think she would love to have it at her desk.
