This product is a home run for Farberware on every possible front - quality, design, functionality, appearance, price! The price point is less than half of the cheapest competing product I could find.
We had one of the original air fryers (not Farberware), a stand-alone fryer that has just the single function (air frying) and barely enough room to provide a meal for two people. Then I was impressed by an infomercial I had seen for an Emeril Lagasse all-in-one air fryer and toaster oven. It was priced at $400 and they were selling it for $200 (if you call in the next five minutes!).
When I went online to find the Lagasse product, it had poor reviews, so I started shopping around. That's when I stumbled on this Farberware unit. It was priced under $100 and appeared to have better functionality than the Lagasse as well as all the competing products, priced $200 all the way up to $700.
This Farberware product has seven functions - Air Fry, Broil, Bake, Convection Broil, Convection Bake, Toast, and Keep Warm! We have used all the functions and they work perfectly. The air frying alone is superior to the stand-alone unit we had before.
The unit is so quiet that, if not for the attractive blue LCD display, you would even wonder if it's on. Unlike our previous air fryer, this unit needs virtually no pre-heating. I saw a review that said it gets too hot on the outside. This is absolutely NOT the case. We have had no problems whatsoever with excessive heat.
If the beautiful design and functionality of this product isn't enough, even the little included recipe book deserves an award. I have tried every recipe in the provided book, and every one of them worked out perfectly and was delicious!
Buy this unit and you will not be disappointed. BUT, get it only at Wal-Mart and don't be tempted to purchase it anywhere else. They seem to have some sort of exclusive deal.
As I said, this is a home run for Farberware. The company should receive accolades and awards from their industry as well as every home chef on the planet!
