Secura 3.4 Qt Air Fryer Review
It’s no secret that air fryers are a great way to reduce fat in your diet. Another benefit is that the food cooks quickly and evenly. In this Secura Air Fryer 3.4 Quart review, we’ll take a look at whether the features outweigh the one thing you should look for in this air fryer. So let’s get started.
This reasonably priced air fryer is ideal for a small family of 2-3 people. Thanks to its small size, it does not take up much space on the kitchen counter. It is also suitable for use in a mobile home, RV, or even in a dorm room.
But don’t let the size fool you. Even though it’s smaller than its larger cousins, it can still prepare a variety of snacks and entire meals.
The hot air circulation means food is cooked more evenly and can usually be cooked faster. Another benefit is that you use little or no oil, making this a healthy alternative to fried foods. But let’s talk about the accessories.

What is the BPA Status?
I feel like I need to mention something here. In my research, I did not find any indication that this product is actually BPA-free. In case you do not know what BPA is, let me explain. BPA (Bisphenol A) is an organic compound used in plastics. This compound has been linked to certain cancers and other health problems. When the company was contacted directly, they confirmed that the product is BPA-free. Since BPA is not specifically mentioned in the product information, I thought you should know.
This is a small air fryer suitable for preparing small snacks and meals for up to three people. The accessories are an added bonus, giving you more cooking options. It is large enough to prepare entire meals and small enough to prepare a variety of snacks.
It’s also very versatile. You can use it in many different places as long as you have power. There is, however, a question mark behind the BPA status of this air fryer. Usually, companies are very proud of their BPA-free status and include it in their documentation. This might be a concern for you, especially if you are cooking for your family.
