Review of the GoWISE USA Air Fryer Oven
In this review I will talk about the many different feature and operations this type of air fryer can do. The GoWise USA Air Fryer Oven Instead of using drawers with a basket is more like a convection air fryer, it has an oven door that opens and 3 rack levels; like a convection oven. It uses a larger fan to circulate the air with higher velocity than most normal convection ovens. Come with me and I will show you why I gave a 9.8 out of 10 stars for this unit.
GoWise USA Air Fryer Oven has a front door and the use of racks to be able to cook your food. You do not have to worry about a basket that you pull out of the unit. You just open the door and you’re able to slide your food out using the provided racks. This is way more convenient and safer as you do not have to worry about the basket dropping off if you hit the wrong button.
This unit is better than a normal convection toaster oven because, the fan that circulates the air in the unit provides more circulation of hot air. It is circulates faster and is hotter. These air fryers are design to have the air move around the food the same way boiling oil moves around the food. The intent with this air movement is to mimic the results of the boiling oi,l thus giving you the crispy outside and the juicy inside of the food you cook. The benefit of doing this is that you do need to use very little oil or no oil at all. The health benefits are great, because you reduce your fat intake by 70% to 80%.
The Number One Reason I Chose the GoWISE USA Air Fryer Oven
The number one reason I choose the GoWISE Air Fryer Oven is its customer service. In looking into this device I found that GoWISE answers it’s one star through three-star reviews on Amazon. None of the other companies that offer a Air Fryer Oven answered any of their reviews.
hen I went to their official site,(gowise.com) I found a chat box that was open M-F 8:30AM-12PM; 1PM-4PM (AZ Time). I found this very useful and they answered all of my questions I posed to them.The support line (855-233-9199), which is opened at the same times, was again very helpful and the people answering question were friendly and knowledgeable. The only reason they did not get 10 out of 10 was some of my answers had to be emailed to me. But all email answered questions were received within 24 hours. No company is perfect and mistakes will happen, but if there’s someone on the end of the phone you can talk to you can get your problem solved. And you can’t ask for much more than that.

Multipurpose Is the Name of the Game
The GoWise USA Air Fryer Oven a very versatile cooking device. It allows you to replace six different devices in your kitchen.
- Toaster Oven
- Convection Oven
- Deep Fryer
- Rotisserie Oven
- Dehydrator Oven
- Pizza Grill
These greatly improve the number of ways to cook your food then the conventional air fryer units.
I Can’t Believe I Made the Whole Thing
This unit has a number of features that allow you to cook larger amounts of food at one time.
- Three racks placements allows for larger amount of food to be cooked.
- A large rotisserie basket rotates the food automatically for you and allows you to use smaller pieces of food.
- 10 skewers allows you to hook to the rotisserie arm.
With these devices you will be able to serve a large amount of food too many people at one time.
Nine Accessories—Count Them Nine
The GoWISE USA Air Fryer Oven has nine accessories are included that allow you to do many things that a conventional air fryer, oven, toaster oven, convection oven, rotisserie oven and pizza grill does.
- Rotisserie tong
- rotisserie rod
- oven rack
- drip pan
- skewer rotisserie
- rotisserie cage
- rotisserie steak cage
- shallow mesh basket
- two mesh trays
Everyone of these accessories except the drip pan are made of stainless steel and can be easily cleaned up either by hand or the dishwasher. The drip pan is nonstick coated and FDA certified, PFOA free and BPA free. As with all nonstick coated items, I recommend you use warm soapy water and a wash rag to hand clean them. Even though the manufacturer states they can be cleaned by dishwasher, I find the surfaces last a lot longer if I don’t expose them to the high temperature and dishwasher chemicals. In some of the information, I have found it is strongly recommended not to use the new dishwasher pod type of soap. If you’re going to wash them in the dishwasher use the old-style granule soap.
There is only one rotisserie rod to work with the three rotisserie attachments. The rod comes with two forks the hold your item you are cooking.(Whole chicken, beef roast, pork roast, etc.)
The rotisserie basket is used to cook items like French fries, jalapeno poppers, breaded mushrooms, vegetables, etc. The great advantage to the rotisserie basket is you don’t have to turn your food while cooking. You can set your time/temperature and your food will cook evenly by using the rotating basket.
The GoWise USA Air Fryer Oven rotisserie skewers are used to make secured food. You can take your favorite vegetables and mix them with your favorite meat then base them with your favorite sauce. Place them in the oven set your time/temperature and they rotate and cook evenly on all sides. You can also take long three-quarter inch thick meat and place them on the skewers. Season to your liking and cook on the rotisserie. As you can see there are many different ways to use the skewers.
A rotisserie steak basket that allows you to cook steaks, pork chops, chicken breasts, etc. in a rotisserie fashion. Just season your food, pop it in the basket, slide it in the air fryer oven, and set your time/temperature for the best tasting air fried food you’ve had.
The GoWise USA Air Fryer Oven wire mesh basket and trays allow you to cook smaller food without them falling through to the bottom. They also allow you to put in herbs and spices to dehydrate without losing them to the bottom drip pan.By using all three at the same time you will get the maximum capacity for air frying, baking, dehydrating and pizza grilling.
The oven rack used to hold food like chicken legs, baking pans, etc. The only problem is I would have liked to have seen two more included so you could use the whole oven at the same time.
The drip pan is placed at the bottom of the oven to catch the grease it comes off of the food and any coatings that happen to fall through. The drip pan has a nonstick coating applied to it. You should cleanness after every use to keep it in top shape. As I recommended before I would hand cleanness with hot soapy water instead of putting it in the dishwasher. This will provide you with a longer-lasting coating.
The rotisserie tongs are used to remove the rotisserie item in the oven. It keeps your hands from getting messy and burned from hot food.
As We Work in the Dark
One of the things I do not highlight about this air fryer oven is the light will not come on when the unit is turned off. This is inconvenient when you are trying to remove something from the rotisserie. Having the light on would make this process a lot easier.
2 Out of 3—Not Bad !
I would have liked to have three wire mesh racks instead of just two. This way I could put the same size food on three levels and rotate them during cooking. Using the wire mesh basket on the bottom would work but when you go to rotate to the upper levels it may hit the food below it.
This also goes for the oven rack. It would be nice to be able to cover all three levels with this style of rack. When you’re doing larger items like chicken thighs and legs it would be nice to have all three levels going at once. Of course you could use the other two wire mesh racks, but they do not cook the same as the oven rack.
This would not be a showstopper for me, but an inconvenience. You could buy extras of these items from GoWise USA customer support (1-855-233-9199). They are not available to any other source. And you will only be able to pick them up from them if they have extra inventory of those items available.
The In and Out of Dehydrating Food
When I am making jerky, I use a temperature of 120°F which is the lowest setting for this GoWise USA air fryer oven. When I’m doing delicate herbs and spices I like to use a lower temperature setting. I will usually take 20″ x 20″ furnace filters and sandwich my items between them. Then I bungee cord this to a box fan and turn it on for a couple days to remove the moisture. The reason I do this is it doesn’t evaporate the oils in them. You get a much better flavor this way. I have seen other manufactured air fryer ovens with a low temperature setting of 80°F. At this temperature you will not evaporate the oils from your delicate herbs and spices. You can dehydrate your herbs and spices at 120°F and you will get good results, but for great results you need to lower the temperature.
4 Types of Rotisserie Food
The GoWise USA Air Fryer Oven Rotisserie Basket allows you to put food like chicken nuggets, French fries, shrimp, etc. into the basket. This allows you to rotate your food while the air circulates around frying the exterior in and even manner. With this method you don’t have to do the Hokey Pokey like other air fryers. You have to put the basket in have’ you have to take the basket out; you have to shake it all about one or more times during the cooking process to get even frying. You can truly set your time/temperature and walk away. When it’s done you have great food evenly cooked.
The Skewer Rotisserie attachment allows you to make up to 10 skewers per cooking. You can use your favorite vegetables, fruit, seafood, and meat in any combination you like. Base them with your favorite cooking sauce and you have a great dinner for 10 people. You can also reduce the number of skewers and cook slightly larger food. Take a thick steak and cut it into even portions run skewer through each and now your cooking steak on your skewers. As you can see there are very many ways to use this device.
The Rotisserie State Cage is a very diverse item also.You can cook stakes, pork chops, hearty fish, chicken breasts, large vegetable pieces, etc. Your imagination is your only limit. Here again this offers set and forget cooking. Place your item in the basket, place the basket in the air fryer oven and set the time & temperature. You do not have to, halfway through the cooking time. turn your food over. This is an add convenience that other standard air fryers don’t have.
Last but not least is the GoWise USA Air Fryer Oven Rotisserie Rod. With the two forks you can cook a whole chicken, beef roast, pork roasts etc. Just season your food, place the rod through the center of your item, place it in the air fryer oven, set your time/temperature and start the oven. The one downside to having a 60 minute timer is when you slow cook your roasts at a lower temperature it may take 2 to 3 hours to cook. So you have to monitor and reset the time after every 60 minutes until your item is cook to the internal temperature you desire. When your item is complete turn your temperature up to 400° for five minutes and you’ll get that crust you desire. Despite having to set your your timer a couple of times is a great way to get your food cooked.
Selecting the Presets
GoWISE USA Air Fryer Oven has 15 preset cooking times/temperatures. To select your’s setting all you do is press one button and it scrolls through your 15 different settings. The reason I like this is on most other air fryers you have an individual button for each preset. The problem with individual buttons is this setting label can wear off. After a while you will not know what that preset what’s for. By scrolling through your different presets with one button it eliminates this problem.
The Wrap Up
The GoWISE USA Air Fryer Oven has added much diversity to the air frying product line. It is able to replace many items in your kitchen thus increasing space in your kitchen. It is also a healthier way to cook as you do not have to add large amount of oil to get a crispy outside in a tender juicy inside with this method of cooking. It’s also safer to cook with than a deep fryer as you do not have large amount of cooking oil at high temperatures. GoWISE customer support allows you to feel comfortable in purchasing this item. I fully recommend purchase of this item has I give it a 9.8 out of 10 rating
