Well suited for preparing fries, nuggets, fish fingers, yams, potatoes, chicken wings and more. The first few times of use there’s that “new” smell, which will go away.
If you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on a Philips airfryer, the Le Coucou Air fryer is very nice and budget friendly alternative. It does not have the swankiest design (my personal opinion), but it sure does the job perfectly.
Le Coucou is a relatively new brand when it comes to air fryers, but they have already racked up more than a few happy customers. The Le Coucou Air Fryer is a cheap air fryer with some impressive features and possibilities. Let’s have a look at the Le Coucou Harmony Air Fryer and see if it’s worth buying.
As of writing this article Le Coucou Kitchen Appliances only has 1 air fryer called the Harmony. The Harmony Air Fryer uses a heating element (located in the top of the air fryer) combined with high speed air circulation to heat the food from all directions thus ensuring healthier and faster preparation of food.

Le Coucou Air Fryer Usage
The Le Coucou Harmony air fryer can be used for preparing a variety of foods, including hamburgers, chicken wings, (French) fries, fish fingers, frozen vegetables, egg rolls and a lot more.
Using the Le Coucou is very easy:
-Remove the food basket from the base
-Fill the basket with food (be careful not to overfill)
-Put the basket back into the base unit
-Set desired time and temperature
-The timer goes off at the end of the cooking process
Note: when preparing fries it’s recommended to shake the basket halfway through. The air fryer automatically stops when the frying pan is taken out so this is not a problem, but for your own timekeeping it’s easier to set the timer for half the time needed and then set again for the remaining time after giving the fries a shake.
Cleaning the Le Coucou is very easy: Just pop the basket in the dishwasher and use a damp cloth to wipe down the base unit.
