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!

About The Product

The NuWave Brio Air Fryer features technology that allows food to be cooked from every angle, meaning you never have to worry about flipping, shaking, or rotating the food during the cooking process.

As your food cooks, the natural fats and grease will drip through the basket into the outer reservoir. Both baskets slip into the fryer, unlike a drawer, and you can remove them by the handle.

Features Of The NuWave Brio Air Fryer

  • Digital LED controls ensure accuracy and consistent results
  • Temperature range from 100 Degree F -390 Degree F in 5 Degree increments
  • ​Auto "pre-heat" feature ensures accurate cooking at the desired temperature
  • Advanced safety feature prevents unit from operating unless basket is in place

You might be wondering how an air fryer like this works. It uses super-heated cyclonic air, which is going to give you a faster cooking time while reducing the amount of calories by 70% of what your regular fryer will produce, regardless of what type of food you are making.

Unlike traditional fryers that are good for only frying, the NuWave is capable of making different types of dishes, as well as “frying.” You can cook poultry, beef, and even seafood with the fryer. You can steam vegetables, bake cakes and pizzas, as well as even make fondue.

Another awesome thing about the air fryer that we like is that you can cook different types of food at one time, making it simple to create a complete meal with very little mess.

The precision temperature control of the air fryer helps to give you optimal control over your cooking. You can select any one of the pre-set settings that corresponds to what you are cooking. This will ensure your food is cooked correctly, neither overdone or underdone, and it also ensure consistency.

What People Had To Say

When looking at what people had to say about the NuWave Brio Air Fryer, the majority of customers were pleased with how the unit works. Customers like that the air fryer features a digital display that clearly shows you the temperature and time for your cook. They also like that there are settings you can choose from depending on what you plan on cooking.

They have said the food they cook using these settings comes out crispy on the outside but still very tender and juicy on the inside.

Customers also pointed out that when it comes time to clean up after using the fryer, it is really simple because it has dishwasher safe components and the owner’s annual has easy to follow care instructions.

While there are plenty of positive reviews of this product, we feel like we have to report on some of the most common problems people have had with this unit. These customers had problems with rust after putting the pieces in the dishwasher. Also, in terms of cleanup, customers were disappointed that the baskets are not nonstick.

Other customers feel that this unit is nothing more than a convection oven. Some have said that the unit didn’t perform like they had hoped. They stated the unit dried out their food, severely altering the texture and flavor of the food.

Our Recommendation

When we were trying to decide if the NuWave Brio Air Fryer is worth purchasing, we had to look at a few things. First, we took into consideration the price. This air fryer is one of the more affordable devices, as it won’t set you back a couple hundred dollars!

Next, we looked at what features does this unit have that makes it stand out from the competition. First of all, you can adjust the temperature anywhere between 100 degrees to 390 degrees, allowing you to increase the heat in 5 degree increments.

It also features an automatic pre-heat function so that you know the device is at the correct temperature when you go to cook a particular item.

We want to point out that the unit does have a safety feature that prevents the unit from being used unless the basket is in place. Another thing worth mentioning is that if you want to use the fryer for things other than just fried foods, you will have to purchase accessories to go along with it.

You do have the option of adding accessories to your order if that is something you are interested in doing for an additional $80. Depending on how frequently you use the fryer, it could be worth the additional cost.

In general, if you’re looking for a way to enjoy fried foods without eating a lot of extra fat and calories, then the NuWave Brio Air Fryer is a great option. It ensures that each time you cook with the dryer, you are going to have crispy food that will be healthier than foods fried the traditional way.

Also, it’s so much more convenient to cook with the air fryer because you aren’t going to have a big mess to clean up. Simply put the dishwasher safe parts in the dishwasher, wipe it down, and call it a day!
