Peruse any kitchen must-have list and odds are, an air fryer will be near the top. An air fryer is a countertop appliance that uses a combination of hot air and oil to mimic the result of a deep fryer. However, unlike deep fryers and other traditional frying methods, an air fryer only requires a small amount of oil, on average one tablespoon or less, to cook crispy and delicious meals.
Because there are hundreds of variations of air fryers available, it can be challenging to land on the one that's best for you. However, if you're looking for a tested-and-proved fan favourite, the Ultrean 5.8-quart air fryer is worth checking out.
Described by shoppers as one of the "best things" they have ever purchased, the Ultrean air fryer has earned thousands of rave reviews and right now, it's on sale at Amazon Canada.
The Ultrean 5.8-quart air fryer is a multipurpose kitchen gadget that can comfortably serve between three and five people. With its 1,700-watt power output, you can quickly serve up your favourite dishes and easily prepare meals using one of the air fryer's ten cooking presets: Toast, fries, frozen fries, pork, chicken wings, shrimp, steak, fish, pizza and cake.
The budget-friendly air fryer uses up to 80 per cent less fat and oil than traditional cooking methods and comes with a detachable, dishwasher-safe basket and interior pan.
11,000 reviews | 4.6-star rating
Ultrean's air fryer has racked up more than 9,000 five-star reviews from Amazon shoppers and accolades for its value and efficiency.
According to one reviewer, it's "so easy to use and clean," and its 5.8-quart capacity is "perfect."
"I cooked steak in it and it tasted better than the BBQ" — "highly recommend," they write.
Another shopper says the air fryer is one of the "best things [they] have ever bought," claiming it's a great way to "save on electricity."
"This thing is powerful!" raves a third shopper; "I'm never touching a microwave or an oven again!"
It "bakes so much quicker" than the oven, they write. "I've cooked so many slices of bacon in it already," and they turn out "nice and crisp" without having to deal with splattering oil.
Despite thousands of five-star reviews, some reviewers note their unit "stopped working" after a few months, sometimes in the "middle of cooking."
It was "great for the first six months," writes one shopper. However, it broke and is now "unable to cook anything."
If you're in the market for an air fryer, this "powerful" Ultrean 5.8-quart unit may be worth checking out — especially at its current sale price.
