Water Damage Prevention Design
Temperature range 100 degrees Fahrenheit - 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
The temperature control is key to the functionality of the cooker. In order to fry your food correctly the temperature setting must be kept. The cooker will shut off when finished and your food will be perfectly cooked every time. This feature is key.
Switch is located in the center of the Brio. This switch is the only one to light up red.
If no time and temp is set the Brio will automatically cook at 360 degrees for 10 minutes. You can set the temperature by tapping the corresponding buttons. Long pressing the button will change the time by increments of 10. Holding the button down longer will change in increments of 20.
You can interupt the cooker, do so by pressing the Start / Pause button again once while the cooker is still cooking. The time will be saved for 5 minutes before the cooker will clear all settings. If you want to clear the cooker yourself press the Start/Pause button again.
Simply grasp the handle and place the base tray on a heat resistant surface. The basket come out of the base tray to be lighter and easier to use. It is important to not lift the latch and press the demounting button on the handle while removing the basket.
To remove the basket, press the demounting button and the basket will lift out of the base tray. The other cooking attachments can then be swapped out.
Don't be fooled, this is an oven. It has a clever air circulating and while that can't be over looked it also doesn't change the fact that this is an oven. That disclaimer aside it is an oven that works really well. You really will be able to roast a chicken ( in the larger 6 quart version ) and it will come out cooked evenly throughout. Since the Brio is automated it will stop cooking exactly when the food is done. Try baking and roasting in the Brio, it might suprise you.
If you're still reading this review it means you got through the 'How To' section. Congratulations. You're best off following an instructional video, in the five minutes it will take to watch it will have covered the contents of the instruction manual which would certainly require consultation during operation.
Remember that this is an oven, the kind of fried food it cooks will taste according dry. The Brio also happens to be a dehydrator for drying fruits and vegetables. Notice the similarity?
