If you need a larger capacity air fryer that is described a simple to use and sturdy, the Chefman 6.8-quart Air Fryer is an excellent option. Like all air fryers, the Chefman uses rapidly circulating hot air to “fry” food. The 6.8-quart capacity makes it perfect for four or five people. It is also a very versatile machine that cooks with less mess, splatter, energy use, and calories. You’ll use about 80% less oil cooking family favorites like tater tots and French fries in addition to many other fresh and frozen foods.
Reviewers have offered up what they have cooked in an air fryer. These include sausages, green fried tomatoes, sweet potato fries, French fries, waffle fries, tater tots, pot stickers, egg rolls, taquitos, chicken nuggets, breaded mozzarella sticks, pierogis, fish sticks, grilled cheese sandwiches, asparagus, zucchini spears, chicken wings, popcorn shrimp, salmon filet, Brussel sprouts, a whole chicken, and a ribeye. The Chefman 6.8 Quart Air Fryer is an excellent option to replace several appliances and eliminate using a conventional oven during the summer.
The air fryer comes with a space saving flat basket that increases capacity by about 40% without increasing the Chefman’s foot print. The plastic components are BPA free for your safety. The appliance also comes with an auto-shut off and a 60-minute timer. All removable parts are dishwasher safe and the exterior is easy to clean with a soft cloth.

One of the best reviews states that they had thought the air fryer craze was just hype. They then got one and discovered that they use it more than their regular oven and that the toaster oven is a thing of the past.
Many of the reviewers prefer the lower tech dials instead of digital buttons and sought out that very simplicity. They feel it is simpler to use and great for people with vision problems. Other people like the ability to cook more food when needed or to make portions for just one in the same machine.
They love the easy clean up, no splatter, no mess, lowered energy use and not heating the kitchen especially during summer.
Chefman is a great company and this XL air fryer is an excellent addition to their line up and to your kitchen.
