Promising review: “I’d been contemplating buying an air fryer for quite some time, but it wasn’t until I found myself cooking every night with my family due to COVID-19 that I finally decided it was the right time to get one. Friends of mine were raving about their new Instant Vortex Plus 6-in-1 Air Fryer, so after reading similar feedback on Amazon, I decided it looked like a winner. I figured I would be using this appliance primarily as air air fryer, but as an added bonus, it can also roast, broil, bake, re-heat, and dehydrate food.
I’ve had this air fryer for about three weeks now, and I can honestly say it’s become the hero of my kitchen. It preheats quickly, it’s large enough to a good amount of food at once, it’s easy to clean, and it makes food taste crispy on the outside and moist on the inside without any oil. I’ve been using my air fryer to make vegetables just about every night, and it makes them taste so good. If you’re cooking for kids, picky eaters, or you just don’t get so excited about eating vegetables, the air fryer could be perfect for you. If you like chicken, the air fryer might change your life, and I don’t mean that to be dramatic. The air fryer produces restaurant-quality chicken that tastes absurdly decadent, except there’s no oil involved in the cooking — just air. We also tried making sesame chicken in the air fryer using boneless skinless chicken thighs. The sesame chicken tasted almost identical to my favorite Chinese takeout, and it had nothing to do with my cooking skills. Thanks to the air fryer, the chicken gets so crispy. I couldn’t believe I made this at home!!” — Hannah Loewentheil
