8 Quart Air Fryer,Large Electric Hot Air Fryers XL Oven Oilless Cooker with 7 Presets,LCD Digital Touch Screen and Nonstick Detachable Basket, Family-Sized,Auto Shut Off, Rapid Frying,1800W (Black)

HAIMIM 8 Quart Air Fryer

Automatic Power-off Design- When the foods need to be turned out of frypot, the product will automatically start the power-off protection and stop the heating. Ensure users use the airfryers safely. (Note: The timer is still working after the fryer is drawn out)

The HaiMIM 8-quart air fryer is a reasonably large, capable air fryer that worked well for cooking frozen french fries, chicken tenders, and frozen vegetables. It fried quickly and cooked our food evenly, and the removable basket and nonstick frying pot made cleanup easy. The one disadvantage we found with this air fryer is that its temperature range is a bit too wide. We cooked frozen french fries at the lowest possible setting (180C), and they still came out a bit crunchy. The air fryer also tended to run hot, and while that's not necessarily a deal-breaker, make sure your hands are completely dry before operating it. The 8-quart HaiMIM air fryer is a better option than the limited 4-quart air fryer we tested, but if you need to fry a lot of food in one go, you'll probably need to upgrade to the 11- or 13-quart model.
