    Cons

    • nearly 5 times the amount of time in a traditional fryer * Limited batch size; depending on what you cook, may not be enough for a family of 4, let alone a family event * Loud; It isn't quite, the fan running is louder then you would think * Doesn't turn off automatically... has a timer, but the heating elements have to be turned off by hand * Learning curve.Ebonovic

      We've been wanting an Air Fryer for a while now but never got around to getting one. We've never owned a deep fryer, just because of the massive amounts of oil it takes and the fact that it is so unhealthy. When I seen this, I decided it was time to see what all the rage was about. The retail box is standard packaging fare. Nothing too special or fancy. It includes the unit, wrapped in plastic and secured by Styrofoam. Included is a VERY small measuring cup, perfect for no more oil than it uses, instruction manual and a hard-bound cookbook. When I seen the cookbook, I was immediately impressed...WOW, I had said to myself. They actually give you a REAL cookbook? Then I opened it. Only 1/4 of it is recipes. In English. The other 3/4 are the same recipes, just in 3 other languages. Outside of the recipe book, there is a recipe app. I only installed it and flipped through it for a few minutes. It looked very basic, similar to the manual that came with the fryer. Also, the app hasn't been updated since late 2016 and still hadn't been formatted to fit the larger Plus sized iPhone screens. Now, aside from my minor niggles with the recipe book and app, everything else is GREAT! I love the device. Yes, it is huge, but that is a plus because you can use around 3+ lb of potatoes and other things. Initial use was a breeze. Just wash the top plastic view-cover, the inside container and the paddle. Everything goes back into place nicely. Cord is of an O.K. length...about average. Overall, I can't find very much to complain about with the overall design. Plus, its not an eyesore either, so that helps! First time cooking, I wanted to go with something super easy and familiar. Chicken nuggets (because we have an 8-year old, lol) and Arby's frozen fries. We did the nuggets first and I have to say, for frozen nuggets and the way the aroma filled the house as they cooked...they seriously tasted like we brought them home from a fast food place. The same goes for the fries. They were nice and crispy and tasted like we just got them from Arby's! Neither the nuggets or the fries required adding extra oil, but we used the paddle on both to keep them "stirred" while they cooked, for evenness. The cooking times for the machine itself is about on par with the bag cooking times. It's just a matter of referencing the manual for the specific food type you are making to determine 3 things. A) If it requires adding oil or not. B) If it requires activating the bottom heating element. C) If it requires use of the paddle. These all vary from one food type to another and if it's frozen or fresh. I can see this being pretty easy to get used to and learn/memorize. Also, there is an included timer that is also removable. This is the only thing about the unit that just felt "cheap" to me. I used the timer on either the stove or my Watch, since this timer is so small and near impossible to hear. The only complaint I have with the unit itself is that the plastic vent cover on top gets EXTREMELY hot while using. Seriously, touching it will burn you. The sides of the unit itself get hot, but not as hot as the top cover. Just make sure any unsupervised children are not around while using this. Also, it does make a bit of noise while it cooks. It sounds to me very similar to that of an exhaust on a stove range. You get used to it pretty quickly. However, the aroma of the food that fills the air makes every bit of it worth it, including the finished item. Oh, and not only is this a multi-fryer, it's a multi-cooker as well! Overall, we love, love, love this item. Very easy to clean and the finished product is great. It will just take some experimenting to get the cooking times right for amounts less than the manual uses. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is in the market for an Air Fryer and especially to anyone who wants to eat fried food, just with less oil. :-)

      Great all around air fryer

      We have 2 other air fryers to compare this to, an Actifry and a Della branded one. First the De'Longhi is the middle of the group size wise, the Della is really big, almost too big as it take up a lot of counter space, but does hold more and can handle a large chicken pretty easily. The Della though doesn’t have a stirring paddle but uses a rotisserie and has a basket for putting things in that need to be turned often, unfortunately that’s only good for a few things and nothing that has liquid in it. The De'Longhi fortunately isn’t much smaller and the paddle in it can be removed for larger items. The one thing the De'Longhi has over the other two is it has a bottom heating element which works great, and now our biscuits and rolls can brown on the bottom, where with the Della you had to flip baked goods over for a couple minutes at the end to get the bottom browned good. Our favorite thing to cook in the Actifry is what I call “Steak Tips”, it’s just cubed up stew meat purchased at any grocery store. I marinade it in a teriyaki sauce for a good hour and then put that in the Actifry with a table spoon of olive oil and half a large onion sliced up. We haven’t had steak any other way in a couple years it comes out so good. The De'Longhi replicates that perfectly, but with the bottom and top heating elements going it cooks up faster in the De'Longhi, plus you can make a larger batch in the De'Longhi, “maybe bad  “. With the Della we had to use the rotisserie and the skewer attachment which is a lot more work than just tossing it in the pan and turning on. The Actifry has only one heat setting, that’s it, both the De'Longhi and Della have adjustable heat, the Della being digital and the De'Longhi being a control wheel, with the Della having a digital readout and mainly preset settings, you can’t fine tune like the De'Longhi which I am finding I like better. I really like the removable timer on the De'Longhi, you can take it with you to another room so you won’t miss turning the unit off. Neither the Actifry nor the De'Longhi turn off when the timer goes off only the Della does that, so you have to be mindful of what’s cooking . We’ve only cooked a couple things with the De'Longhi but from what I can see it will be a more versatile appliance in the end over the Actifry and the Della, the addition of the bottom heating element makes it work just that much better. I do wish the De'Longhi would come with a rack insert that way you could clear the nub for the stirring paddle and you could bake more items easier. Cleanup is about the same between the three, all of them have removable cooking pans, only on the Della you cannot remove the top, but its interior liner is glass so it wipes down very easily. I think you will be impressed and happy with the De'Longhi if you decide to pick one up.

      Great air frier for small apartments

      Great air frier for small apartments Before I review this frier I need to clarify that I live in a small apartment that has a tiny kitchen open to the living room, and it was always impossible to deep fry anything. When we wanted to have french fries we used to oven cook frozen potatoes in the oven and they always came out either under cooked or dry and burnt. I also have a very bad experience with different types of cheaper air friers which never did the job right. Here is my experience with the De’Longhi MultiFry FH1363: Packaging was very good, Instructions were super easy, and cleaning is even easier. I followed the instructions and cleaned the 2 detachable parts (part of the cover and the frying pan itself) with water and normal dishwashing solution, I dried them using a dry paper towel and attached them back. The instruction manual was very clear, the package also included a very fancy and easy to follow recipe book for 25 different recipes with less than a 100 words for how to create a good recipe accompanied with pictures (this book is very good for creating easy and delicious recipes even for the laziest of people). The frier have a bottom and an upper heater for better cooking and instructions for all recipes are clear on when to use one or both and for how long. The frier also have a battery powered detachable timer that can be used to remind you to check on or turn off the frier (the timer will not turn the frier off when the time is passed). So i tried to fry a bag of frozen potatoes, and as it turns out, frozen potatoes do not even need a spoon of oil. I dumped the bag in the frier with the paddle installed, turned both the upper and lower heaters on and set the timer for 25 minutes as instructed by the manual and the cook book. The paddle started rotating 4 minutes after the machine was turned on and in 15 minutes i was able to see that the fries are turning golden, I opened the frier lid while it was on (you can do that) and added some salt, and closed the lid again. After 25 minutes, the timer started ringing so I turned off the frier, pulled the pan lever up and opened the lid and the fries were golden and crunchy and delicious with the least amount of effort. I waited until the frier cooled a bit and detached the lid and the pan and cleaned them with water and soap put them back in place and unplugged the frier. This was a very pleasant effortless experience. Final notes: The frier did not made any noises and there was almost no frying smell at all beside the delicious smell of fresh fried potatoes. Although most of the body is made of plastic, but the machine seems very sturdy and I hope it will last as long as I hoped. (The machine is made in China). The only flow I can think of is the price, although this is a great addition to our kitchen from a very trusted name but it shouldn’t be more than $150 to get all 5 stars from me. I totally recommend the frier to anyone with a small kitchen and no way to fry indoors.

      DeLonghi Multi-Cooker

      This Delonghi is a very functional cross between a convection toaster oven, an air fryer, and a slow cooker. Once I familiarized myself with the parts and buttons and got it cleaned up, I started a beef stew. I wasn't sure how all the parts of the stew would cook so I began using the method described in a recipe on the DeLonghi website. I added some cut up vegetables and a glug of oil, closed the lid, then turned it on. There are two sources of heat - the lower element and the upper element which moves through food convection-style. The paddle begins to stir a few minutes into the cook and moves gently through the food. After about 10 minutes the veg started to look a bit browned so I added the dredged and seasoned stew meat and some hot water, lowered the cooking temperature using the dial on the top, and set the timer for 30 minutes. I didn't add everything I usually do in case it didn't turn out and was wasted, but it turned out pretty good! To me, there were 3 ways to do a beef stew. One - in the big oven in a large pot, low and slow. Two - in a run-of-the-mill slow cooker which (for me) either cooks too slowly or boils the meat. Three - on the top of the stove. The stove and oven are impractical in the heat of summer and I don't like to leave a slow cooker on all day. This cooker does the gentle cook without heating the house. Ideally, I'd always have a really tender cut of meat to begin with so if something needs a long slow braise, then this might not be the right thing, but the convenience and capacity is wonderful. I also prepared some frozen french fries and they turned out as expected - if you cook these things too long in a convection oven or at a too low temperature they get rubbery and it takes a little practice to get it right. I have an Oyama Turbo countertop oven (which I love) with top-heat and fan so this is familiar. Some things I can't make in the Oyama but am going to try in the DeLonghi are a frittata and a coffee cake. For reference, the pan holds 146+ fluid ounces but isn't made to handle that - there is a maximum volume of food and liquid you can safely add. The pan is ceramic-coated and scratch resistant so I'd recommend wood and plastic utensils because these pans are expensive to replace. The fan is pretty loud, but as far as I know, they all are. Pros: the convenience of a slow cooker but with a lightweight cooking pan, a wider cooking temperature range and a built-in stirring mechanism doesn't heat up the house quick cooking solid build quality very good instruction manual easy to take apart for cleaning Cons: the paddle is really hard to remove for a countertop device it has a really big footprint I wish there were a temperature gauge instead of cooking levels no indicator light to show that the lower heating element is switched on the timer does not turn off the unit adjusting the timer is very awkward - I have to stoop down to look straight on to see the display

      Flexible Multifryer!

      The DeLonghi - MultiFry 1.8-Quart Multi Cooker is a new Air fryer and cooker packed with features. I received this for review and was excited to try it. Setup is easy and straight forward. I tried the Sesamie Ginger Salmon recipe, it was easy to do and delicious. The MultiFry is a true Multicooker, not just an air fryer. It can fry, roast and broil effortlessly. You don’t have to think about any other device & methods. This is a great addition to any kitchen. The Cooker: The bowl is of ceramic material which has a non-scratch coating. It is very easy to clean.​​The mixing paddle has a metal arm and paddle made of plastic. The timer is just to indicate the time and the heating/cooking process does not stop automatically. The Surround Cooking System is very effective heating technology. The ability to control upper and lower heating elements give the flexibility of consistent and quick heating with the ability to use one or both heaters. BPA-free lid transparent lid allows you to monitor what’s cooking. You don’t have to open it up like other air fryers/cookers to know how your food is cooking. Since the lids are removable or detachable and you can manually configure the appliance as needed. The MultiFry comes with a recipe book an an app is available for more. With the Flexible heating and the removable stirring paddle your creativity is the only limit for what recipes you can invent. Cooking uses no oil or as little as one teaspoon in most cases. You can prepare fried foods with much less fat than traditional methods and still achieve delicious results. You do not need to stir continuously when frying or roasting. The mixing paddle automatically and mixes the food eliminating the need to stir! The paddle will start stirring after a few minutes after cooking commences. The MultiFry is moderately sized, about the same size as a crock pot. It is easy to move around and carry. Most Kitchens have a limited counter and storage space, because of its compactness it is right at home in almost any layout. The device hosts a 4-level heating technology. The temperature varies between 300 degrees to 370 degrees between level 1 to level 4. Although DeLonghi does not specify the temperatures here is a guide for approximate temperature levels so you can convert recipes for their appliance: Level 1- 300 degrees, Level 2- 340 degrees, Level 3- 360 degrees and Level 4- 370 degrees. Overall I was very pleased with the way the cooker worked, I wish it had a timer. I will be eating more fried foods now without the worry of additional fat in my diet! If you are looking for an air fryer and want flexibility to use it as a broiler or roaster at a great price this is the one for you. With the other air fryers you are limited to frying by design.

      The advertisement says “The versatile De'Longhi Multi-Fry Air Fryer MultiCooker allows you to easily cook, bake, and broil for delicious meals. Easily prepare fresh fries, sauces, steaks, salmon, pizzas, and more with minimal added oil.” Could that really be true? If so, that would make my life so much easier. So I put my new Multi-Fryer to the test. LET’S CHECK IT OUT: • Versatility: You can remove the paddle in the middle and gain more cooking space. • Size: It's quite adequate for a small family and gives you more options than the conventional air fryers. • Flavor: The food comes out pretty decent considering the low amount of fat it's being cooked in. Obviously the flavor is not the same as cooking & frying in fat but it's pretty good. It takes time to figure it how long things need to cook and at what temperature but it's easy to use. • Cleaning: Make sure you hand wash it which is really easy. I just soak in water with a bit of soap and few hours later any stuck on bits are gone. Removable parts can go into the dishwasher if you prefer, but I always like a little “soak” with everything I first throw into my dishwasher. The surface is a non-stick, ceramic surface. No metal touches the food. • My pet peeve with oil: I do not like to use oil in my house. It splatters. Difficult to clean. Sticky. Smells. My family doesn’t understand how to use oil properly or to take precautions, so all the adults that are cooking in my kitchen really irks me when they start to use oil, or even spray oils! They have no idea. On the glass. On the counters. On the floor, stove, refrigerator, etc. All over!!! The air fryer saves me a headache with the oil and spray issue! Hey, now with this MultiCooker, we’re now talking about 1 TBSP for 2.2 lbs. of French fries. The oil stays inside the unit and not all over my stove, counters, floor, walls and cabinets. My absolute pet peeve is now under control!!! LOL The BIGGEST ASSET: Baking cakes without turning on the oven and heating the whole house up. Has to be an energy bonus for the summer folks who hate turning on their oven during the hot months (like I do). THE SCOOP: • Low-oil fryer • Multicooker. Broils, fries, bakes • Low-fat diet friendly • Perfect for those who eat Diabetic Diets or Low Carb Diets. Just prep and add everything for 1-2 meals. Think turkey chili or Vegetable bisque. Quick version of meat sauce or even a veggie sauce. Think boneless chicken cacciatore. For those who are hearty low-carb folks, broiled steak, chicken, fish. Ever have broiled broccoli with broiled garlic crumbles? I’m not a by any means. Don’t know my way around kitchens, but I try with the little time I have each day. I improvise and perfect on good things. If I buy a bag of turkey meatballs and use store-bought spaghetti sauce, I still ramp it up with my own choice of spices before cooking or serving. Nothing fancy and not a mess. • Mixing automatic paddle which is also removable. Save the stirring for the paddle! • 60 ounce/1.8 quart capacity • Heats from all surfaces except the top. Not a only a bottom cooker. My crockpot does that and DOESN’T have a paddle! • Ceramic no-stick surface. Boil cheese on the bottom and just wipe away! No metal touches your food. SUMMARY: This is my new best friend. I spent a lot of money eating out or ordering in because I have NO TIME to prep the meals my family wants and what I am able to do. It fits a busy lifestyle, it gives me the versatility I need with our varied diets in this house and the food tastes awesome without the mess.

      The DeLonghi - MultiFry 1.8-Quart Multi Cooker is a very simple, but unique kitchen appliance. I have had my fair share of fried food over time and this was something I was dying to try out. As someone that tries to eat healthier, I was hoping this would help me accomplish that while leaving the taste intact on some of the favorites for me, my wife, and our kids. After a few experiments, I think I have an idea on what it's good for and what needs to be improved. First, the good. I love how easy it is to prep and clean with this. If you have something remotely close to what's in the included recipe book, the guesswork is eliminated. Unless you are doing some major prep work, like cutting up potatoes, this can be a very easy meal preparer much like a slow cooker is for some. Once you have your meal ready, set the power level, turn on the heat, and press start. Set a timer on the stove, the fryer, or your phone and return when it's done. After you are all done, the clean up is pretty easy too. You can remove the inserts and cover to clean them as needed. My wife and I have enjoyed that portion of the show. Now, the middle road. We had mixed reviews on some of the items that we tried to cook. Our initial voyage was with corn on the cob. We thought it came out well, but it still wasn't like the fresh of the grill that we all love. However, it was easy prep, cooking, and clean-up. On the flip side, we tried to make sweet potato fries. We cut up some fresh potatoes, added oil, and set our time. We felt these didn't turn out any better than what we could do in a toaster over. That's not to say they were awful, but we expected more. Yes, a sweet potato is different than a regular one, but the recipe made it seem like it would be so much better. Unfortunately, there are a few bads. It is definitely louder than any slow cooker or toaster oven that I have ever used. We have an open floor plan where you can watch TV while doing meal prep. I have a very good sound system that I have to turn up to hear things over the fryer. The next thing is kind of a feature wish as well. While a detachable timer is nice, it would be great if you could set it to control the power like you can with other items. At this point, it's like being by the grill or deep fryer depending on what you are cooking. Yes, there are some items you can start and walk away for a bit, but you better be comfortable with the power setting or you'll take a chance on overcooking your food. At this point, I wouldn't say it's the best or worst small appliance in the world. I do plan to try to perfect my skills using it and I hope that it will change my mind on some of the negatives that I have come across. I do agree with some that this is super nice for college or apartment living. I think this might something for the lake house or cabin in the woods too. A nice chance to fry something without a ton of prep and oil.

      After my introduction to air frying using another product, the De’Longhi MultiFry Multi Cooker offered an opportunity to experience a different approach to the process. It turned out to be a welcome one. Once I got the MultiFry, I lifted the box to the clanking sound of a loose item inside. I immediately had an Ace Venture Pet Detective flashback while wondering what was loose inside. I opened the box, pulled the cooker out, and noticed it was a piece that I would later come to know as the ‘paddle’ knocking around inside. Didn’t have any tape on it or anything – maybe something to consider. The MultiFry had average packaging, Styrofoam in tow, but was very tight and well protected. The device has a larger footprint than other air fryers, but I have come to learn that is a good thing. In fact, because of my previous experiences, the first thing I noticed was the large 8 inch pan/basket. This was a welcome sight, as other air fryers have proven to not cook thoroughly when food is stacked. There is plenty of space in the MultiFry to put a decent single layer of meats down for cooking. The device is very well built and sturdy, and is very simple to disassemble and clean. Also in the box were a small instruction booklet and a full, hardbacked cookbook. The book has a little over 100 pages, but that’s due to language translations. There are actually about 35 pages of recipes. A very nice touch. Setting up the MultiFry was very easy and quick. It has the look of a device with a bit of complexity, but the decision to not be too simple is what makes it special. The instructions provide a detailed chart on how to set the MultiFry for various cooking scenarios. This thing is very flexible. It can provide heat to food from both the top and bottom – controlled by the user. That’s a welcome change to the single heat approach – relying solely on creating a heat chamber. This gives flexibility to cook many types of foods in different ways. Then, to top it off, they have added a paddle that automatically stirs or turns foods when necessary. No more issues of uncooked food when you have to stack. Nuggets, potatoes, veggies – you name it! Truly a good cooking experience. Add to that the fact that you can see your meal while it’s cooking – a wonderful design move that makes even more of a difference in the MultiFry’s favor. My first meal? Chicken strips. Temp = 4, bottom heat = yes, paddle = no (settings from the instruction manual). I didn’t add a drop of oil. The MultiFry did an absolute excellent job! Crispy outside, tender inside, and cooked on both sides. It’s just great at delivering results. Clean up was very straightforward and simple. The De’Longhi MultiFry seems to the go to air fryer. It simply offers functionality that not only eliminates some of the issue faced when using other air fryers, but is very well built and produces consistent results. This is a no brainer in my opinion.
