    After 3 years of having this air fryer, we love using it! We preparer all kinds of food in it including baking cookies, biscuits, chicken, mixed veggies, French fries, and pizza. We reheat all crunchy food in here and it takes like it did when it was originally made!

    I've been wanting a air fryer for a few months now and was waiting on a good sale for a good product this one came in right on time and at the right price I have yet to cook anything that I've been disappointed with and I've tried from sweet potato fries to hot dogs and it was all perfect.

    I always seem to get the bad products lately...

    Not sure if the fryer or the basket that slides in and out -- it is not assembled correctly/deformed. I have to almost bear hug this huge thing just to get the basket to go all the way in and "click". It does not want to stay closed, keeps popping back out. The basket also is scraping the bottom of the heating element in the unit when you put the basket in or take it out. I do not like the poor quality control here at all. The power cord gets really warm (I only powered this thing on a total of 2-3 minutes). I understand these appliances like these generally do this, but in my opinion, this appliance's cord was getting warmer than my a-i-o large convection/toaster/rotisserie oven. Also, some of the wording on the packing upon further inspection is like broken English or just missing words. "Free Fry" anyone??? ...Just another hint of poor quality control. Glad I inspect and test products like this before I actually have food out to ruin. Just time wasted in addition to extra trip back to Best Buy for return.

    My favorite kitchen appliance!

    Posted .

    It's my new favorite kitchen appliance (ok, right below the Roomba I bought from Best Buy last year) but I digress. I've been pricing them for a few weeks when I caught this one sale. Based on the value I decided to go for the 6 qt. even though two people could get away with something a bit smaller. It's so easy to use with the settings and clean up is easier than I imagined. I've made fries, chicken tenders and wings in it so far. Looking forward to going through the recipe book to try other meal options. I bought it online and picked it up the next day. Plug it in and press the button. Love it!

    A Quality Product...

    I highly recommend this Gourmet air fryer. I bought it to replace a NuWave 6 quart air fryer that I had to return, after two weeks, because the non-stick coating was flaking off. The coating on the Gourmia is much more durable and non-stick; you can feel the difference just by touching it. I have used the Gourmet to cook fresh meats including steaks, chicken, lamb, pork and fish, as well as pre-cooked frozen items like french fries, onion rings, tater tots, pierogies and chicken wings. Some items, like potato products and pierogies, benefit from adding a little bit of oil to get a similar mouth-feel to deep fried foods. Just place the food in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag with a couple tablespoons of oil (I use olive oil as it has a higher "smoke" temperature than regular vegetable oils) and shake it until every piece is slightly coated. Some people complain about the Gourmia in their reviews, saying it overcooks food. Let me explain something here: the cooking times listed in the manual are not set in stone. They are approximations, and it even says so if you bother to read it. Like any other cooking device, you should get to know it. Also, don't hesitate to check the progress of the cooking by pulling the basket out a little early and looking at the food or using a meat thermometer to gauge the doneness. Remember that there are two factors, other than the cooking temperature, that will affect cooking time; the amount of food you put in and the temperature of the food (ie frozen vs. refrigerated). Also keep in mind that air fryers can't cook "wet" battered foods; save those for the deep fryer, but it does a fine job with dry breading like Shake 'n Bake or just regular bread crumbs, just be sure to spray on a little cooking spray if you see any dry spots. With a little common cooking sense, you will love this great addition to your kitchen!

    An excellent air fryer!

    I purchased this Gourmia air fryer 6qt so that I can make delicious chicken at home and fry it without any oil. This fryer makes it easy and it even has a chicken button and booklet with yummy recipes. Pros: - Cooks very fast - Up to 400 degrees temp - Digital display, easy one press options - Very large for bigger servings or big families - Extremely easy to clean up - Makes a large variety of food - Free included recipe book, very good and healthy ideas - Doesn't use oil, healthier food! - Quick preparation - heats left overs and isn't soggy like Microwave, nice and crispy - Feels very durable, can expect to get years of use without breaking or wearing down. Lots of metal pieces. - non-stick coating in the basket actually works very well Cons: - It runs very loud and button presses are louder than necessary - Can tend to overcook items, so recommended to check on your food and pause the timer a few minutes before scheduled to prevent burning. Not a problem as long as you check before the timer is done, don't just set it and walk away. - Very large. this can be a pro but storing this fryer when not in use will take lots of cabinet space or kitchen-top space. Overall the pros far outweigh the cons and I've made some amazing food in this fryer that even surprised my family, they couldn't believe how good it turned out from an air fryer! I wouldn't even say the cons (all minor things) take away 1 star from this review, I would still easily rate this 5 stars but perhaps they're something for the manufacturer to note if they make future products like this. Quieter button presses would be nice, or a volume option. I would definitely recommend this air fryer if you're looking to make healthy home-made meals! Disclaimer: I am an employee at Best Buy

    Hat's Off Award to Gourmia!

    I've been looking for a decent family size air fryer for some LONG period of time! I found this one at Best Buy totally by accident, and GRABBED IT!!! It didn't hurt one little bit that it was also on sale either! The basket is a very generous 6.5-quart size, that can do an entire chicken, a bag of fries, or a meal of fried fish without having to do it in stages for a most pleasant change! Getting to the bare bones of the matter the device heats quickly, slide in the basket, and so far -- the presets have performed to perfection! I've used the air fryer almost daily just to give it a thorough workout! Hasn't let me down once! Next step is to bake a cake which is going to be very interesting! Essentially I look at the air fryer as a convection oven on steroids. Recipes transfer nicely with only a little adjustment DOWN for higher temperatures and faster air-flow. I like the ease of operation and the presets seem to be well thought out. I should add that it is surprisingly quiet, and the "dings" at the end of the cycle are loud enough to be heard over a room full of kids with the tv blasting. Definitely a good addition to the line-up at BB

    Gourmia 6 qt Air Fryer

    I am new to the air fryer world. I got an excellent buy on this model and it had a large capacity basket, etc. I did not use it for two weeks as I had no idea what to use it on. My first venture was reheating some left over bbq ribs and French fries for dinner. Unbelievable! Like just being served at the restaurant. Next I cooked chicken tenders for dinner and again...perfect and everything cooks faster than the oven and no wasted electricity. I then spent time on the computer pulling up and printing recipes and most importantly a conversion chart for times and temperatures. I am dangerous now with this new knowledge and appreciate the healthier and faster way of cooking without a microwave taste. I feel I have an excellent appliance that is easy to use to help me on my mission.

    I jumped on the pre Black Friday deal and I am so happy I did! This is an excellent appliance that has already been used more than other appliances in my kitchen. First off, it’s a behemoth. You will need to make space for this guy but it’s incredibly worth it, and thankfully it’s a pretty attractive unit. The touch buttons are responsive and there are multiple presets. It’s very easy to use and everything has the same general concept. Cook, and flip/shake up halfway through. I find the presets are a little too long so definitely keep an eye on your food so you don’t have burnt vegetables! I’ve cooked sweet potato fries from scratch, marinated chicken breasts, and threw some frozen breaded eggplant into it. Every time has been a hit. It’s so easy to clean and so easy to use that I am recommending it to everyone. At $100 this is worth it. At any type of sale price, it’s a steal!

    Time Saving Wonder

    I have used Gourmia products before and as usual they deliver excellence. Every time I use this Air Fryer whether it's for classic french fries or something more complex like turnovers, this Air Fryer cooks to perfection every time. The ease of use is what amazes me also. The fact that you can make perfectly crisped food that's moist without deep frying using oil makes the whole process that much easier. I would definitely recommend this product to a seasoned chef or the average cook who is just beginning. After using this product from Gourmia I will be looking to buy more of their products, maybe one of their pressure cookers or coffee makers. Very pleased! Thank you Gourmia!

    Deep Fried Taste, Hopefully More healthy

    You hear good an bad about air fryers. One person says they're great, another says they're crap. So far, over a few weeks time our experiences has been mostly positive. We have tried many things but by far my favorite has been wings. Just sprayed them with some oil, applied wing dust liberally and let the air fryer perform it's magic. So far we've enjoyed restaurant taste fries of different varieties, cheese sticks, wings, chicken planks and fish. With this particular fryer, the controls are easy to figure out and pretty intuitive. You do have to experiment with cooking times and keep an eye on things so they don't over cook and get dried out I'm sure we'll develop a system over time. The nicest thing is, everything cleans up very easily. Instructions say to hand wash and it would be nice to put in the dish washer, but oh well. Over all I'm able to enjoy wings and tasty cheese sticks much more often because I always hated cleaning the Fry Daddy.

    I was reluctant to purchase an air fryer since I am not a gadget person but my sisters talked me into it. I was looking for a Gourmet since Costco had sold this brand before. Finally it came available on line. I use it almost every other day. Heats up quickly (my oven takes forever) and cooks pretty fast. Fried green tomatoes, roasted vegetables, baked potatoes, a fabulous cod breaded with salt and vinegar crushed chips, and plenty more. Doing a lot of cooking lately. This newer Gourmet has an oval basket which I don't think is as spacious as the original square but it is very quiet. I love it!! I wish I would have gotten the sale price :-(

    I love this product!!!!! Was skeptic and afraid to give any air fryers a try. But one day Best Buy had a deal and thought I'd give it a try. We didn't have an oven and most food my husband craved for requires to bake. So I bought him this air fryer. I'm glad I did. I never had to cook again. If my husband can operate this I'm sure most anyone can. So easy to operate and easy to clean!!!! Also I've tried potstickers, king pao mochi balls, shrimp tempura and all kinds of stuff and the food tastes excellent in less time, less mess. Doesn't taste greasy but more like a healthy crunch. I even got my neighbor to get one for her family and she love it too. She works at a thai restaurant and rather have that at home for kids to make her dinner as she's tired from cooking all day.
