I had been using a different digital insignia basket one but the control panel died, so simpler maybe better as we never used the presets anyways.
Bought it last year too. The timer dial broke on mine so it stays on all the time. I just pull the plug to shut it off. I want to bring in for warranty but I use it daily and would hate to wait to get it back from repair. The air fryer concept is excellent and one of the most useful appliance I have ever bought but this model is not the best quality.

I'm curious, who uses "precise" temperature and time with air fryers? I simply put it on high with a random time and check in between once if I need to dial again Face With Tears Of Joy

Think you can just take it to BBuy with original box and receipt and walk away with a brand new one, since Insignia is BBuys in house brand.

EDIT: maybe wrong that you'll get a new one, they may just send it off for repair for you, never dealt with Insignia warranty.

Has anyone compared this air fryer to the Gourmia at Costco being offered for $69.99?

As you all know in my previous posts, I do have this one as well. My only complaint is it was missing a grommet leg. No matter how many times I reached out to Best Buy, they never did anything about it so I gave up.

Over time you will notice build up between the fins. Those are hard places to get to with a regular dish cloth.

To make cleaning less grueling, I recommend placing a sheet of tin foil underneath. Means you won't have to clean the base, just the tray.

Every few months I'd recommend taking the base apart to clean inside the front as people don't realize the build up in their of loose dishwater foods.

Can anyone check in their manual to see if this is dishwasher safe?

$69.99 now. Same as last year’s Black Friday price. There’s also a 5L digital model for the same price. This one is better IMO. Sale ends Nov 4.
