I was looking at that too when i was in the States in the summer. Looking at reviews at the time, a lot had issues and to suggested to wait for a newer version that works out on the kinks. Apparently lots of failures and not as advertised.

I have the same concern, that is why I pick Costco to consider because of their satisfaction guarantee.

I had the same concerns for the 1st gen instantpot and was holding out for the 2nd gen models to get released. Thankfully this is a 2nd generation chefman and I hope it does the job!

The instant pot vortex looks to be much smaller than this.

Bought an Oster model at Costco last week but I kind of hate the French Door design... might return it and pick this up instead.

This looks suspiciously like my Cuisinart TOA-60C.

If it is, it's fine.
Usually I'm against digital controls, but in the case of a timer I 100% prefer it.
The dial based timers suck so I don't know if I'm going for 19 minutes or 21 minutes.

As for the actual functionality, it's not bad.
It's not "sealed" at the bottom so if you cook proteins a lot put a sheet pan under it otherwise your counter gets nasty.

As always, this is an oven. Not a fryer. Don't expect anything remotely close to deep fried in terms of taste/texture/appearance.
Judging it as an oven, it makes a pretty good oven. This has replaced my full sized convection for most tasks.
Judging it as a fryer, it's awful.

Nothing.
Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.

I was looking at that this morning. What don't you like about the French doors?

From what I have seen, older convection ovens had a fan on the side (similar to convection ovens, which would have fan at back of oven). My old Kitchen Aid convection toaster is designed as such.

Air Fryers that I have owned and seen elsewhere have the fan from above. This is what simulates the fry effect - coming from above gives better distribution of intense heat.

My toaster is almost toast, so I am very much considering snagging this (with the $20 off email sign up, very hot).
My assumption is fan is from above - can anyone confirm?

I have my pod Power Airfryer XL (from Costco) and love it - it is basket design, so can only put things in from above. Basically impossible for naan bread pizzas. The Chefman would allow for more versatile air frying.

According to the shape, the fan must be on top, there is no space to put the fan on side.
I also love my column shaped air fryer but it's too small. This oven looks to be big enough to cook a normal meal, and also can be used as an oven.
