Recipe book: Combined with manual
- manufacturer says, “air fries, bakes, boils, broils, dehydrates, grills, roasts and steams”
- manufacturer says, can cook from frozen. (Many purchasers advise to thaw first nonetheless.)
- You can cook veggies and meat at the same two, on the two different level racks, you just have to get the timing right for when to add each
- The halogen bulb is not replaceable when it burns out, you have to buy a whole new lid
- “When handle is in off position or lowered, there is a little lever that protrudes push that in and out.This lever in not in the handle but in the unit itself. The handle just pushes it on or off.”1
- Upper grill just has three legs instead of four, some customers have pointed out it’s a bit tippy for that reason
- Do not try to turn the timer dial counter clockwise or you will break it
- Some users report there is too much moisture retained in the machine for successful dehydration to occur
- Some users report that the FlavorWave cooking accessory kit will fit this machine2
- Lettering can wear off the dials quite quickly. Some people advise putting clear tape over the lettering to protect it;
- Metal tinish wears off metal racks quickly, it’s just sprayed on
