- Air fries, bakes, boils, broils, grills, roasts, and steams, according to manufacturer
- The machine has a self-clean feature, though users say that that doesn’t completely eliminate any additional washing, just makes it easier.
- Lettering can wear off the dials quite quickly. Some people advise putting clear tape over the lettering to protect it;
- Does not come with a stand for the lid;
- Purchasers mention that the light from it is much, much brighter than from other halogen models they’ve had;
- Re-heats French fries well;
- Some users think the manual’s suggested cooking guidelines for meat roasts (just use same temperature as regular oven) lead to too high a temperature leaving a burnt outer layer and uncooked insides;
- Do not attempt to push the timer backwards;
- You can steam vegetables, cook foods from frozen, and make good toast (@ 250 F) in it;
- The spaces between the tines in the racks are somewhat wide. To cook smaller things, cover the racks with foil and poke holes in the foil.
- Users expressed unhappiness that only a few lines of cooking temperatures / times guidelines are given in the user manual, and for very unusual items (such as Cornish game hens.)
- Users say that while they are happier to have a smaller oven to use, it doesn’t really cook three times faster than a regular oven.
- Remains hot for quite a while after cooking;
- Will cook about 2 pieces of fish at a time. To remove cooked fish without breaking it, you need to remove the entire rack.
- Lid handle must be pushed down or unit will not power on
- The bowl is deep with straight sides, and it can be awkward to grab the low rack with a chicken on it, so people suggest finding a turkey / chicken lifter that will fit in and putting the bird on that, then on the rack.
