For deliciously fried food that hasn’t sucked up a ton of fat from the oil that it was cooked in, you’re not going to want to use regular frying methods. Instead, you’ll want to try an air fryer like the GoWISE 4th Generation Electric Air Fryer.
In this review, we are going to talk a little more about the features of the GoWISE 4th Generation Electric Air Fryer, but we are also going to give you an overview of what people who have purchased the Air fryer had to say about their overall experience with it.
Then, we’re going to give you our recommendation on whether or not this Air fryer is something you should consider purchasing for your own kitchen!
In our question to live a healthier lifestyle, we are always on the hunt for a quality product that is going to help us achieve that. The GoWISE 4th Generation Electric Air Fryer is a unit that can do that and more, as it features 7 functional cooking settings: chicken, steak, fish, meat, shrimp, chips, and cake.
You have the ability to customize the temperature, as it ranges from 175 degrees to 400 degrees. The unit also features a 30 minute timer which will automatically stop and reset when you check the basket or shake the contents.
The unit features a button guard safety feature that is going to prevent you from dropping the basket before you are ready to do so. This safety feature simply ensures that you have to move the guard before you can press the button to release the basket, instead of accidentally hitting the button with your thumb.
GoWISE improved on the complaints that customers had with the previous 3.2 quart fryer. The most notable being how customers used the timer. The older model had a simple button which had the tendency to break when you would use it. However, this unit features a touch screen, making it easier to use.
It’s also worth noting that the unit can reach 400 degrees within 3 minutes, which expedites the cooking process exponentially as opposed to cooking in the oven.
The way this unit works is by utilizing and circulating the heat from the heater coil by using a fan to circulate the hot air rapidly around your foot that’s in the cooking basket. This technology ensures that the air hits the food from all sides.
When looking at what people had to say about the GoWISE 4th Generation Electric Air Fryer, we weren’t surprised by all the positive reviews this product has received. Customers like how well this unit is able to produce fried foods without the extra calories that you would get from traditional frying.
Customers were so impressed by the cooking capabilities of the unit that they feel they are able to get restaurant quality results!
Once the cooking has been complete and it’s time to clean up, customers like that the unit is dishwasher safe and the unit is made from nonstick material, making clean up a cinch. When everything has been thoroughly cleaned and dried, people like that they can keep the unit on their countertops without sacrificing too much space.
Of all the positive reviews this product has received, there are going to be some negative comments as well. Customers found that the nonstick coating would start chipping away only after a handful of uses. A couple people have said that the Calphalon in their unit is fine, but the screws on the inside are beginning to rust, which as you can imagine is quite disappointing.
Other problems people have had with this unit are with the basket. Some have said the handle breaks or falls off shortly after purchasing the basket. People also do not like that the guide where the basket slides prevents the unit from closing entirely, which makes the unit not work as efficiently as it should.
The GoWISE 4th Generation Electric Air Fryer is designed to make your life a little easier and healthier while preparing your favorite fried foods. With its LCD digital touch screen control, you can fine tune your temperature settings to get the precise temperature you need.
You can also use the preset modes depending on the food you are cooking, thus making the cooking experience that much easier. This is a unit that is capable of making crispy fried foods in a matter of minutes.
When it comes time to clean up, the unit has dishwasher safe components and nonstick surfaces, making the whole cleanup process that much simpler. If you want to wash the unit by hand, you can do that too. We recommend that you allow for the drawer and basket to soak in warm water immediately after you’ve cooked your food.
If you have done a bit of research and you’ve noticed that some air fryer models can be quite expensive, but that isn’t the case with the GoWise. At its affordable price point, you can purchase the nonstick cake baking pan that is designed for this model. This cake pan will make your unit more versatile because not only can you fry with it, but you can also bake!
We especially like this particular fryer because it comes with a 1 year warranty against defects in the materials or in the workmanship. This means if you experience the Calphalon flaking off, you can contact customer support and they will be able to help remedy the situation.
