[Amazon.ca] HOT (literally) Instant Pot Omni Plus Air Fryer Toaster Oven, 26L, $206.82

*Edit 1 for price reduction.
*Edit 2 for price reduction

Seems like a hot deal to me. The next one down is nearly $250.00. And MSRP is quite a bit higher. Not many this big for this price from my research. Great reviews and tons of functions.

What exactly is this good for? Anyone use one?
I had a Philips and sold it. We don't buy fries and other premade foods.

Do you cook? This is for people who cook. Put uncooked food in, get cooked food out.

He doesn't buy premade food apparently, I guess he'll starve to death if he doesn't cook either :P

It's good for heating things. One time, in band camp, I used one to heat an apple pie. It was so good.

No, you will need a wifi router to connect to the internet wirelessly.

What the?!? Chicken Rotisserie?
I'm definitely intrigued.

I purchased the Chefman Air Fryer Toaster from Costco Online less than a year ago, and have found it's air frying capabilities very underwhelming (compared to my Power Air Fryer XL Pod).

Might consider returning the Chefman, and snag this, should it actually work well.

An air fryer is an appliance that uses air to fry your food, some products achieve the same or similar results to actually frying food with oil. Reviews say that this product does exactly that.

Do I personally believe that? No.
Have I actually used one? No.

4.5 star reviews out of 1000. That should mean something.

If I had more counter space, I would try it out, but kitchen counter real estate is too scarce.

The vast majority of the recipes and food people raved about was crap foods.. Frozen egg rolls. Pre-cooked Wings. Frozen fries.. Frozen chicken tenders etc.

We made fresh chicken tenders and it took so ridiculously long, and the finished product was horrid.. Similar experience with a few other things. For fresh foods or healthy foods.. It was useless.

So.. I'm wondering if this is good for anything other than ramen and French fry level foods.. Do you have experience with real fresh reasonably healthy food in a cooker like this..

Or did you just want to be utterly useless in another forthcoming reply?

I was skeptical at first (as was everyone from my family), but my Power Air Fryer XL converted everyone.
I would say we use it less for cooking, but it is the go to device for reheating any food which you prefer having crunchy over soggy, within a condensed amount of time. The only drawback is the basket design, which makes certain foods (mini pita bread pizzas) hard to remove.

Was hoping the Chefman Air Fryer toaster oven would resolve this. It does, but it takes like double/triple the time to achieve the results of my XL, which is why I will likely return it (Costco). If I can find a toaster oven style air fryer that can achieve a similar heatblast like the XL, I will snag it.

Anyone know where the exhaust vent is located? Sides? Rear?
