Purchased on 1/8/23 and it arrived on 2/22/23, but I didnt get a chance to open the box and try it out today 3/6/23. There are 3 plastic pegs that keep the motor secured to the glass bowl. 2 of the pegs was broken so now the motor tilts and doesnt properly rotate the tumbler. Im bummed out because I chose Fritaire over the Cosori lite
Its not really self cleaning, but its as close it can get. After every use I just let the fryer kind of rinse itself as the water swirls in the bowl and then just hand rinse and dry. I can pretty much clean it after evey use and because its a glass bowl, you are motivated to keep it clean too. Its cute and looks so different on my counter. Ats a real splash of style to my white kitchen and people even ask me what this cool looking think is. My neighbors already bought one too.
I didn't anticipate enjoying this so much. My first air fryer was a large, pricey standard model, which I found to be cumbersome, difficult to clean, and generally inconvenient. I just didn't see why people loved air fryers; it wasn't any simpler than using my oven. Till I acquired this self cleaning one. It's adorable. I use it practically every day and keep it on my counter because it takes up little room. It does such an excellent job cooking quickly and evenly. It's great for "frying" scallops or shrimp, zucchini fries, and my personal favorite, buffalo cauliflower, which cooks up so crispy and delectably. The best part is that you can see what is happening.
I have never seen an air fryer as colorful as the Fritaire, it's amazing, and it works great. I also never have seen a self-cleaning air fryer. EVERYONE NEEDS THIS. It changes everything
I have tried other air fryers before but they just don't compare to my Fritaire. The self-cleaning feature is a game changer - it makes cleaning so much easier and more efficient. With other air fryers, I would dread cleaning them because it was such a hassle, but with Fritaire, it's so easy. Additionally, the glass bowl is a game changer too - I can see what's cooking without having to open the lid, WOW. Its also very cute - it's so different from all the black and silver air fryers out there.
