    I have had this for about ten days now and made five items. I dont usually leave reviews but thought I would for this air fryer. Its pretty great as far as I am concerned. Pro and Cons. Let me start with the cons.

    CONS
    1. Complaints about plastic smell. Not really a con for me but I see others complaining so I will mention it. I had no problem. I ran the machine through several air fry cycles (400 degrees for 15 minutes) before I cooked any food and noticed the oft complained about plastic smell the first time. It then decreased each time I ran it through another cycle until I could barely notice it. Some reviews say to remove the silicon food grade tabs on the grate insert but note that the grate will then easily fall out when you try to empty the pan by tipping it over. It might eventually fall out with the tabs in place but I used a tongs to prevent the grate from falling out any time I tipped the pan over to empty it.

    2. My big complaint is the instructions. They are sparse. It took me awhile to realize I can pull out the pan anytime I want to flip my food and the machine will simply start where it left off when the pan is replaced. If you already flipped your food you can just leave the machine be for the ten seconds it tells you to flip your food and resumes air frying. My learning consisted of trial and error (still doing that learning cook times and when to flip the food) and looking at air fryer demonstration videos and recipes online. The intstant website appears to have no recipes for the air fryer and the recipe page only has recipes for their insta pot.

    PROS

    The food!! From left to right I first did french fries then chicken thighs, steak, fish and grilled ham and cheese.

    FRENCH FRIES – Came out crispy and delicious. The picture is actually my second batch. The first batch went in, then I realized the machine was preheating. I just left the fries in. The machine then went to its 15 minute standard time at 400 degrees. The fries were OK but some were overcooked probably due to going in during the preheat cycle. The second batch went in after the machine preheated and used 12 minutes (after I learned how to adjust the time). This batch was much much improved. I used store bought frozen fries which seem to work really well. For fresh potatoes I learned I had to soak the fries first in water to get rid of some of the starch and dry them with paper towels otherwise the fries didnt turn out as crispy as the store bought frozen fries. My only slight complaint is the cooking grate would eventually fall out when I tipped the pan over to empty the fries onto a plate. I learned to hold the grate with tongs to keep it from falling out.

    Chicken – I love fried chicken so this was the real test. I made four bone in thighs. Two were egg wash and then panko bread crumbs (on the left of the picture) and two (on the right of the picture) were eggwash and seasoned flour. All four thighs were sprayed with cooking oil (PAM). I learned this is a must to get a good fry. As you can see some of the panko came off during the cook from the fan. The panko also tended to burn. Many recipes use panko so the food gets crispy but for me it was just OK. On the other hand the chicken with the eggwash and then flour was GREAT. Crispy, juicy, as good as when I deep fry with oil.

    STEAK – This is my go to method of making a steak when its too cold outside to grill. It took me awhile to get the time down but the steak turned out really good. I used the broil cycle at 380 degrees. I used an instant read thermometer to get a perfect medium-medium well of 140 inside. I first had the steak on 17 minutes (flipped half way) but it the internal temp was only 120. I then did another 5 minutes. The steak was juicy and perfectly cooked for me.

    FISH – This was my one “Its OK” dish that I have work on. I did cod loins at 400 degrees air fry for 8 minutes (flipping half way). I used eggwash and seasoned flour with a spray of cooking oil. The coating wasnt as crispy when I deep fried with oil. Next time I will try increasing the time to see if that improves it. I didnt want to overcook the fish which it wasnt.

    GRILLED HAM AND CHEESE – This was the last item prepared. It was probably one of the best grilled sandwiches I have had in a long time. Crispy on the outside with hot gooey cheese and ham on the inside. My go to way to make a grilled cheese from now on. I buttered the outside of the bread and put the machine 6 minutes on air fry at 400 flipping halfway. Like the french fries, the picture was my second sandwich. The first I had at 8 minutes and that was too long, the sandwich was overcooked. But when I got the time down it made a GREAT grilled ham and cheese.

    Easy to clean. I just washed the grate in warm soapy water and wiped the pan out with a paper towel after each use.

    So that its. I hope this helps other people looking at this machine or other air fryers. I am happy with mine so far. Its just a matter of trial and error until you learn the temps and cooking times that work for you.

    My Instant Vortex Plus Air Fryer Oven Review

    I ordered this air fryer on 09/11/2022 and received it on 09/16/2022. I had been reading a lot of good things about air fryers and had been toying with the idea of getting one for myself. I thought the 6 quart model would be just about the right size.

    It arrived well packaged in an outer box and was undamaged. I’ve read stories where people have received what they suspected were used and returned models, but that does not appear to be the case with me.
    Following the break in procedures in the included manual, I ran a foodless test cook at 400° for 20 minutes. I immediately detected the oft talked about burning plastic odor. It was noticeable, it was not nearly as over powering as some of the one star ratings made it sound.

    After the first test cook I allowed it cool for about 10 minutes and ran a second and then a third foodless test cook all at 400°. While I have no proof to back up my theory, I suspect the odor is nothing more then production oils burning off. The odor seemed to subside with each consecutive test cook. After a day or so it was completely gone. I should mention that taking the little “feet” off the plate in the basket did not have any effect either good or bad with respect to the odor as far as I could tell. But like I said, by the next day the odor was gone.

    This morning I tried my first actual test cook of a grilled ham and cheese sandwich. Buttered each side of the bread and preheated the air fryer. When it was ready I set the timer for 6 minutes at 400° with a flip at the 3 minute mark. Sandwich came out nice and toasty, though I would have preferred the cheese to be a little more gooey.

    Next I tried some home made French fries. I think I made a few mistakes. First, I used the Julian feature on my mandolin to slice the potatoes. The fries came out extremely thin and small. The next mistake was I placed them in the basket and sprayed a little EVOO on them, thinking it would help them crisp. Because they were so small and thin, some burned, the others just came out soggy from the EVOO. I’m chalking that up to inexperience.

    So I decided to tackle chicken wings. I dusted them with a flour, salt, pepper and paprika mix and cooked them at 380° for 20 minutes. While they did come out somewhat crispy, they were not the golden color I was looking for. I think my mistake here was in not brushing them with olive oil to help crisp up the skin. Another case of inexperience. I’m not going to give up though because I do dearly love me some fried chicken.

    My next foray into air fryer cooking was boneless pork chops. I seasoned these with salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder on both sides. Unless I’m following a recipe I don’t measure things, I just add till it “looks right”. Just for the heck of it I decided to use the Broil feature instead of Air Fry. I set the timer for 17 minutes and the temp at 400°. I flipped the chops at 8 ½ minutes. These came out perfect. A nice “bark” on the outside and juicy on the inside.

    I was so pleased with the way the pork chops came out, the next day I decided to take a run at bacon. I cooked two different batches. The first was using the air fryer setting. Time was six minutes, temp was 360°. When it was done the bacon still seemed to be not as crunchy as I would like, so I added 2 more minutes. This time they were nice and crunchy.

    My second batch was on Broil. You can’t change the temp which is preset at 400° so I reduced the cooking time down to five minutes. Personally I liked the Broil results better then the air fryer setting. So did my wife. As a side note, I was surprised at how little bacon grease remained in the pan after cooking. In the interest of full disclosure, after I opened the package of bacon, I cut the slab in half so they fit better in the basket. I was able to get six half slices into the pan without overlapping. Also after cooking I peeked inside the air fryer and did not see any evidence of bacon grease splatter anywhere.

    Since I already had a third of a breakfast done, I decided to go full Monty. I found three Yukon Gold potatoes in the kitchen so I peeled and diced them up. I tossed them with just a smidge of olive oil, garlic powder, salt, pepper and paprika. I tossed them in the fryer, selected broil and set the timer for 12 minutes. Remember, the temp for broiler is preset to 400° and can’t be changed. At least not as far as I could figure out.

    When they were done I taste tested a few and they were delicious so I called it good. While eating I came across a few of the bigger chunks that probably could have gone another minute or so, but that’s not a big deal. Then I cooked up some scrambled eggs for my wife and a couple sunnyside up for me, old school on the stove and breakfast was served. Over all I would have to say I was delighted with the results.

    I have not tackled the Dehydrate feature yet. I’m not sure how I feel about running my air fryer for several hours. I did take a stab at banana chips. To keep them from turning black some videos recommend dunking in salt water while another suggested using lemon juice. Since the one video didn’t mention how much salt to use, I went with the lemon juice. They did not “chip” and tasted like lemon. I think I’ll stick to slicing my bananas into my Raisin Bran.

    Tonight I’m testing out my air fryers ability to make the “perfect” baked potato. I placed two normal sized russet potatoes in the basket after stabbing them repeatedly with a fork and giving each one a loving massage with olive oil. I set it to air fry. Time set for 50 minutes at a temp of 400°. They were still a tad hard so I added another five minutes and that finished them off nicely. Dining Tip: Plain Greek yogurt makes an acceptable substitute for sour cream on a baked potato.

    If there is one thing I’m not happy with regarding this air fryer is its alert beeps. Usually half way through whatever cooking time you set, it will beep to remind you to shake or flip whatever you’re cooking. It will also beep to let you know the cooking cycle is done. The problem for me is the beep is so quiet I never hear it. I sit at my desk, right around the corner from the kitchen and still can’t hear it.

    The air fryer itself is so quiet I can barely hear it when it’s running. Thankfully I have Alexa to set those timers for me. OK, well I better end this review now or I’ll wind up writing a cook book. So in closing I have to say I am 100% happy and satisfied with my purchase.

    I did come across one other feature I’m not a big fan of. And that’s the timer. It only counts down in full miutes until you are down to the last minute, when it converts to a seconds count down. So when you’re cooking and the timer shows six minutes, you don’t know if that means six minutes and 55 seconds, or six minutes and 2 seconds. That 53 seconds can make a big difference in an air fryer. But I monitor my cooking anyway, so it’s not a deal breaker for me.

    The product was delivered with good packaging and was not damaged from anywhere. Once product was delivered I got an online demo from Mr Devendra. The demo was good wherein he not only gave the details of the product and how to use it but also assisted me with my queries. The product is very easy to use if one knows the timer and temp settings. I have mainly the user the air fryer mode and the food was cooked in the same way when fried on a pan but the major difference being that very less oil was used in air fryer. Overall a very good product and would recommend to those who liked fried or roasted items and are worried about health issues due to the excess oil used in them. This air fryer requires very less oil and gets the job done

    Mr Umesh Kadam of Frootle came and gave a good demo on how to use it and the precautions to be taken.
    We have used it once so far and the result is quite satisfactory. We expect to use it extensively in the days to come.

    This is my 5th air fryer oven, I’m embarrassed to say. 1) Too small, 2) Too hard to clean, 3) Too many buttons to get to the right setting. After that, I looked for one that claimed “one-touch cooking” and “programmable.” I found one, and the quality of air-fried food was vastly better, but it was NOT one touch for me. It required 18 “beeps” of button pressing to get to the time and temp I use 90% of the time – 8 more beeps than the previous oven. But I kept it, thinking it was ridiculous to complain about pushing buttons when it worked so well. Then, my best friend decided to buy her first air fryer and she did a much better job of research. She chose this Instant Pot air-fryer. When she showed me how it remembers the last setting, how could I resist? Think how much time I can save pushing one button instead of 18! I was lucky to find a “used” one on Amazon for $79. It meant waiting a few extra days to receive it, but it saved me $50 and it arrived in perfect condition. It didn’t appear to have ever been used. I’m in heaven. It cooks faster than my previous oven with excellent results, has a preheat option as well as other functions such as dehydrate and roast. There’s an app for recipes, too. Every time I press one button to get cooking, I want to sing. I do feel guilty about being so self-indulgent, but I honestly hope that whoever gets the one I cleaned up and donated will be glad.

    Product got delivered before time and is very easy to use. Time and temperature settings are simple and easy to understand. I have used the product only twice till now but I can say, one does not need to preheat the fryer. The setting is inbuilt and it automatically goes into preheat mode. If the temp and time settings are correct, food will get cooked perfectly. Has time beeper for adding and turning the food in the fryer. Noise level is bearable, neither too loud nor too quiet. There was plastic smell while cooking but the smell was not transferred to food👍.
    Overall the product looks standard and durable and user friendly.

    Demo call was quick, I received the package in the morning, called Customer Care for Demo and same day a Demo was arranged. Zafar was on call, I had kept potato slices ready (was under impression that at least one recipe would be prepared as Demo). Zafar informed about the features. The challenge is the use, most of the people who have made Air Fryer recipes videos have Philips Air Fryer and they promote settings are as per Philips. Another Cons is that other Air Fryers have the food container which can be kept outside while pre heat is on. Wife is reluctant to keep the pizza in the air fryer post pre heat

    Fryers make it easy to whip up frozen foods,
    and they can do so in a way that is slightly healthier than deep-frying. The results are much better than oven-frying, and your kitchen stays cool.

    Some mistakes i made that you should avoid i.e.

    1. Not opening up the machine and mixing your
    food at least once when you are cooking
    2. Overcrowding the air fryer. The more i
    crowded the less crispier the results
    3. Not using even a litt/le cooking spray at all.
    4. Cooking straight out of the fridge without
    letting it thaw.
    5. Not knowing that you can cook many other
    recipes than just those that involve frying.
