Farberware Air Fryer Review
The Farberware airfryer can grill, bake, roast and fry using the hot air circulation technology. Depending on the type of food you’re preparing you can use little to no oil to get crispy fried foods.
Examples of food you can prepare in the Faberware Air Fryer: roasted potatoes, onion rings, drum sticks, French fries, chicken wings, egg rolls and steak (yes steak!)
Out of the box this air fryer does not look very sophisticated; there are just 2 control dials for temperature and time settings. If you’re a lover of digital panels with cooking presets, then I guess you can stop reading here :-).
You can set the temperature settings up 400 F and the timer up to 30 minutes. When finished you will hear a polite “ding” and the air fryer turns off automatically.
The size of this air fryer is comparable to other air fryers on the market and is mostly suitable for a small family of 2-3 people. If you have a bigger family or are a restaurant or cafe owner I would suggest you take a look at the Philips XL avance.
The air fryer comes with a recipe book featuring 25+ recipes. If this is not sufficient then check out this fabulous recipe book or use good old Google or YouTube for free recipes.
Cleaning the air fryer is easy: just wipe down the main appliance with a little soap and water and the non-stick basket can be popped into the dishwasher.

Farberware Air Fryer Cooking Tips
There are many foods to be prepared with this air fryer. We have some tips for cooking the different types of food:
Season and spray a bit of oil on the drumsticks and set the temperature dial to 350 F. Set the timer dial to 20 minutes and they will come out crispy and juicy.
Fries (Frozen from the supermarket)
You need to pre-heat the air fryer for a few minutes on 400 F. Add the frozen fries (up to 2 lbs) in the basket and set the timer to 10 minutes. When finished shake the basket and fry for another 10 minutes for golden crispy fries.
Add the onion rings to the basket and set the temperature dial to 400 F and the timer at 7-10 minutes for deliciously crispy rings without the extra calories.
