It has been a fun adventure to experiment with this air fryer. One of the best uses has been for roasted brussels sprouts, see photo. Simply chop in half, toss with a little oil, lightly salt, throw in the basket (after using the "P" preheat function), and then touch the "Fish" setting button. Half way through, pull out the basket and 'scoop' it in the air to toss around the contents, and return it to the unit to continue cooking. (The fan and timer stop when you pull out the basket to check the food.) When it beeps complete (10 mins, I think), you have deliciously roasted veggies that make any meal fancy. Washing the basket and the rack is easy, nonstick surface works well. I have not gotten the hang of the different preset buttons, so I often just 'start' it and then keep checking. Some of the preset settings use a lower temp, which is better for some foods. Only thing that did not work well was cheese-filled breadsticks cooked from frozen. The middle was still cold when the outside was getting too crispy. Foods are tending to work better when thawed at least a little, but frozen fries and smaller items still come out crispy and hot in the middle. We reheated some thin crust (take-out) pizza, and the crust was better reheated than when it was fresh from the box. There are tons of air fryer recipes and tips online, I'd suggest using them. I have not regretted this purchase at all, it's great for re-crisping and reheating. And I would not want anything less than this 8qt basket size, otherwise it would be way too small. Consider that when choosing a model. 8qt sounds like a lot, but if reheating pizza for example, food sits on the rack in the bottom of the basket and this one can accommodate 2-3 pieces of take out (PapaJohn's-type) pizza at a time. One 4-minute cycle of the "P" preheat button heats and crisps slices of pizza perfectly. If the pizza is particularly cold, it might take part of a second preheat cycle, but watch it closely to avoid burning the cheese or toppings such as pepperoni. Great to reheat/re-crisp things like biscuits, when microwaving them is a dud. Be aware that it does take a fair amount of counter space, and you need it clear in front of the basket to pull it in and out, but I think it's worth it. This is a higher priced unit, but it was on a great sale here. My mom had a smaller one (3 qt, perhaps?), and it was so tiny it wasn't worth the effort to cook such a small amount for 2 adults. She found the Paula Dean air fryer book to be useful.
Yes, it is quite huge, but... So is my ove to heat up!! As a single person, this is so much more practical to prepate meals. Made butternut squash with dried apricots, cranberries and pepitas... Then made ribeye steaks with mushrooms...all in the same basket! Didn't have to turn the oven on, or the grill, or clean up multiple pans. And the best thing I didn't heat up my whole kitchen. Saves on so much clean-up! And everything turned out perfectl, the steak was very juicy and just as good as on the grill without going in and out of the house. Love it so far, but need a new cookbook!
I've waited all this time to buy an air fryer because of price and uncertainty. My friend told me about this one which was only $59 at the time. I quickly ordered one and when it came in my Husband laughed at me because of how large it was on the counter. Guess who uses it everyday ? That's right. The husband. I've cooked so much more than potatoes in it and I've been pleased with every recipe. I'm so glad I bought it. It has several pre-loaded times with icons and the ability to Adjust both temp and time. Maybe I don't know what things to look for when it comes to air fryers but it has met my expectations and then some. When it goes on sale again I will buy more as gifts.
I love my air fryer. I’m new to cooking with an air fryer and have enjoyed each meal. Will not go back to frying. I made a whole chicken recently and I’m now loving white meat the air fryer made my chicken so moist and tender it was wonderful. Steak medium rare was perfect. Frozen foods come out crisp and heated perfectly. I definitely recommend air fryer and the Bella Pro Series to everyone.

I've bake a banana bread, a cake (which comes out very soft and spongy) I've made dinner rolls, and a pizza and bake lemon pepper chicken wings, salute vegetables, roasted chickpeas. I've made all these things in the short about of time that i've had it and I am still learning and it saves on time and mess. This Bella Pro Series 8-qt is massive, i can cook a chicken in this thing if i wanted to, its awesome.
My only concern it's the sound, that beeping sound, and when you press the buttons Yikes. I wish there was a way to turn it down! Now if i lived in house i wouldn't mind it because it appears to be design for a house, so if your in another room, it calls out to you, lol. But in a apartment that sound is super super loud, I wish there was an app that would send me a notification that it's almost about to be done or when it finish, now that will be idea.
P.S (lol) Banana Bread/Cake bake it at 325 for 40 minutes work wonder for me, i cook it at lower temp because i didn't want the top to burn and cover it foil if your worried about the top browning too fast.
Air fryer is amazing… Love the fact that we don’t need to use any oil to make great meals from salmon, chicken, steaks, veggies, fries, Burgers are just a few.. I bought 2 and I use them at the same time I have a large fam. Meals are done in a few minutes. I highly recommend it…
The Bello Pro is amazing. Easy to cook and clean. Doesn’t make any loud noise at all while cooking. Food comes out delicious and takes very minimal time. I would most definitely recommend this product. It can fit up to 4 big pork chops inside for an example and 4-5 juicy burgers just to get an idea of size. Touchscreen and comes with 9 presets.
A:AnswerSmell should go away shortly if you did not pre-season the air Fryer when you first used it. All that required was running Fryer at top temperature for 10 or 15 minutes empty. That burns off the factory odor.
A:AnswerThat's a difficult question to answer. Mainly, a quart refers to liquid measure which is something that does not apply to an air fryer. With that, I assume they are using the quart reference as a volume measure? We have found that it will hold a lot of food in a single layer. The product is marked as an 8 qt model, just to clarify. A large whole chicken will fit. That's about the biggest thing we have cooked.
A:AnswerHello, thanks for reaching out. A variety of standard baking dishes, such as a 7-inch x 8-inch casserole, any 7-inch round or square cake
pan, a 6-cup muffin pan, an 8-inch loaf pan, 1 quart round, square, or rectangular casserole dishes may be used for cooking many different foods. Have a nice day. The BELLA Team.
