Chefman Turbofry 3.6 Qt Air Fryer Review

Chefman Turbofry 3.6 Qt Air Fryer

You don’t need a medical reason to reap the benefits of using an air fryer. Air fryers are popular for their convenience as well as their health benefits. They come in many different sizes so there’s no reason why you can’t find the right size for you or your family. In this Chefman Turbofry 3.6 Qt Air Fryer review, we’ll take a look at how well it works and whether it’s worth having in your kitchen. It has one feature you don’t usually find in small air fryers. Let’s take a look at some of the features first.

Features of the Chefman Turbofry 3.6 Qt Air Fryer

This air fryer can be purchased on Amazon and is suitable for 2-3 people. Even though it’s a bit smaller, you can use it to cook, bake, roast and fry many meals and snacks.

One feature is that the tray sits inside the basket. With many air fryers, the tray is under the basket, which can make a greasy mess. This makes it easier to clean the air fryer. Just pull out the basket, remove the tray, and wash it by hand.

The red/blue light indicator at the top of the air fryer flashes red when the air fryer is in use.

The plastic used in the manufacture of this product is BPA-free. BPA is Bisphenol A is a chemical compound suspected of causing cancer. It has been used in the manufacture of many plastic products including electronics, data storage devices, water bottles, and more.

Pros:

  • Chefman Turbofry 3.6 Qt Air Fryer - BPA FreeBake, fry, and roast with this air fryer
  • Automatic shut off function: you can walk away and come back when your food is done
  • Made from BPA-free plastic
  • 60-minute timer means you can fry small chicken pieces as well as other foods that need more time

Cons:

  • Limited recipe book: The recipe book is part of the User Guide and contains only 16 recipes. There’s a variety of recipes, from shrimp to cupcakes, but it’s not very extensive.
  • The Food may have a plastic aftertaste. This should subside after the first use.
  • It may be some smoke. This can occur the first time you use the Chefman and can be caused by too much grease in the food being fried or grease residue in the basket. Wash the basket and tray before using.

A unique feature of this air fryer is that it includes rotisserie tools. That’s unusual for smaller air fryers. Special tools are usually reserved for much larger air fryers. So if you like to eat chicken from the grill, this is a plus for you.

A Word About Ventilation

Please note that the vents are located at the bottom of the front of the air fryer. If your countertop is sensitive to heat, it is best to place the air fryer on a large wooden cutting board. (Very Important with Granite and Quartz Countertops)

Wrap Up

There’s a lot to like about the Chefman Turbofry 3.6 Qt Air Fryer. Don’t let the size fool you. The additional accessories allow you to expand the types of foods you prepare. The recipe book, however, is a bit sparse. Sixteen recipes barely cover the many dishes you can make with this air fryer.

The size of this air fryer is ideal for small kitchens where space is at a premium. It’s also ideal for RV’s, dorms, and tiny houses. For this reason, I give this air fryer a rating of 9.7 out of 10 for this fryer.
