Works Fine

Cooking pork chops and steaks with absolutely no problems. Initially, there was the new plastic smell, but on the second go round, chops came out great. You must season the basket first, in the instructions, and then no plastic after taste. Works well when you're in a rush for time. Hate the others had issues with theirs, but the wife and I really like ours.

Don't waste your money. I made chicken, fish and fries in it and was very unhappy with the way they came out. I took it back to the store.

I have a Question

Nuwave Air Frryer

What a gimmick! Would you like your house smelling like burnt plastic as you cooked dinner? No thanks. Take it back to China. Could be toxic like most of China produces?

Doesn't Taste Fried at All

I received one of these as a gift. I was really hoping to get a miracle alternative to oil frying. It should be called Air Baker, not Air Fryer. Frozen French Fries and Chicken Tenders taste like they were baked in the oven, not fried and it takes about the same amount of time to do it as in the oven. I haven't tried any fresh prepared food in it yet, but don't expect any different results. Disappointed.

I ordered this air fryer, but Decided against it several hours later, and so I tried to cancel my order the same day. I was told that since it was a new order, I was not yet in the system and to call back Monday morning to cancel.
First thing Monday morning, I called NuWave Brio and tried to cancel my order, and was told it had already been shipped!
I was told that I would be charged the shipping and handling fee of $29.99, and now I am told that I will be charged another $29.99 for a total of $59.98 because I returned the fryer!
Charges of almost $60.00 for absolutely nothing!
