Ultrean Air Fryer – A Quick Review
Ultrean Air Fryer, 4.2 Quart (4 Liter) Electric Hot Air Fryers Oven Oilless Cooker with LCD Digital Screen and Nonstick Frying Pot, ETL/UL Certified,1-Year Warranty,1500W (Black)
Good day everyone! Today we are going to take a look at the Ultrean Air Fryer. It’s another one of the lesser known brands, but it seems to be well liked by hundreds of consumers. Let’s see how it stakes up while we go over “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly”.
There are plenty of health concerns among consumers nowadays. Providing crispy, tasty, fried meals without the use of oil is a concept that’s fairly new. Air Fryers are just now starting to catch on fire and have taken the market by storm. This is something that used to be impossible, but now you can fry as much food as you want without the guilt of using that greasy oil!
Air fryers produce nearly the same results as a deep fryer, but there is no messy cleanup and they are much more affordable.
Now you can make fried meals without the guild of all that grease clogging up your internal systems.
If you cook often, the use of your conventional oven will go down. I used to cook using my oven 4 – 5 times a week and I honestly can’t remember the last time I used it. With proper meal prep, you might go weeks or months without ever using your oven. This air fryer can accomplish any tasks a conventional oven can (within reason to size) but better.
This air fryer doesn’t use as much power as your oven so it actually pays for itself over time. Think about it! You save money because you’re not buying unnecessary oil. Conventional ovens take up significantly more power, so you’re lowering your electric bill, and it’s a much healthier option than what you’re currently eating.
Simplicity goes far with consumers. Not everyone is a master engineer, people like to be able to use their product right out of the box and Ultrean Air Fryer is no exception. It only takes a few minutes to set up, just plug your air fryer in and get started. Auto-Shut Off is included, this is a very important feature. There are a few air fryers out there that either don’t have auto shut off, or it doesn’t work correctly.
This is NOT one of those air fryers. You may adjust the temperature from 180 to 400 degrees F and set the timer from 0 to 30 minutes.
Out of all the air fryers on the market, There are two versions I keep seeing; They either look like a mini convection oven that you may monitor through the class while it’s cooking, or you those that look like the picture above where the food is hidden.
I personally prefer the ladder because these devices have a basket that is easily removed. That makes cleaning a whole like easier. Rinse the basket off and just throw it in the dishwasher. If you don’t have a dishwasher it won’t take long to clean out the basket at all, if you want you can soak the basket with soap in the sink but cleaning is extremely simple.
Great Customer Service
You don’t always expect people to go that extra mile, but when it happens, it’s surprisingly wonderful. One consumer left a negative review about the units poor functionality. Apparently it wasn’t heating the food correctly, and meals were coming out to bad much to the consumer’s dissatisfaction.
The company contacted the member and insisted on sending them a brand new unit free of charge. The customer loves the new unit and it works perfectly for them. Not every machine that makes it to market will function properly, but the company’s willingness to resolve an issue will go far with consumers.
Paint Peels Off
Air fryers can get extremely hot. There are some foods that the recipe book may tell you to set the temperature at 400 degrees. I always say, get to know your device as much as you can while cooking. The manufacturers may say 400, but for your own personal preference, maybe only 380 is needed.
I have yet to cook anything at 400 degrees in my air fryer because it isn’t necessary. Apparently, if you cook products at 400 degrees often, the air fryer will get extremely hot and make some paint for the buttons peel off. This situation may become dangerous if not monitored correctly.
Poor Instructions/Tiny Print
I’ve been a cook for 20 years so if I was given a cookbook with minimal instructions and a picture of the product, I would eventually figure out how it’s made, or have a very close version of it. However, most people don’t fall into that category. They want clear, concise information on how to do something, with pictures and readable font.
If I’m not mistaken, a large portion of the United States are “Baby Boomers” and May require larger text. If the instructions can be read, they seem like you’re already a cook. When sending recipes to consumers, they need to be simplified, not everyone has the same skill level as the author of a recipe book.
There have been a few complaints from consumers about their air fryer not working when they received it. One customer turned their air fryer on and was met with something that said “E1 Error Code”.
Once this code comes up, the device stops working completely. Unfortunately, the consumers did not mention whether they contacted customer service to resolve the issue. They may have been so upset, that they decided to wash their hands of the entire affair.
Carbon Monoxide Leak
I could only find one report about this online but I thought it necessary to point out nonetheless. One consumer bought this product and it began leaking carbon monoxide. As I said, this is the only report I could find on that issue, so it is very rare, but also something to be conscious of.
