Pros and Cons

Armed with the knowledge from above, let’s check out pros and cons.


When you buy an air fryer, you buy it for a few reasons that go above its health benefits. You want something easy to use, easy to clean, and does the job right. The Gowise USA Ming’s Mark Electric Air Fryer does all of that, and, it can cook almost anything, even cake. Yes, cake. It also cooks donuts and can reheat last night’s pizza very quickly.

One thing to keep in mind with this air fryer is that like with any kitchen appliance, overuse is going to lead to some wear and tear. Use this appliance sparingly, and take good care of it when you do. Then you should be cooking donuts and pizza for a long time to come.

  • Load it, hit the chicken, steak, fish, shrimp, fries, or cupcake button and forget it. Or, manually program it for desired crispiness.
  • Evenly cooks almost anything in less than 15 minutes, while some recipes may take longer, as is the case with any meal-planning.
  • It is so quiet you barely even know it is running.
  • Will not stink up your kitchen and heat emitted is used for cooking food, not the house.
  • Very little cleanup, no extra dishes or pots.
  • Goodbye oil splatters.
  • Comes in a variety of colors to fit any kitchen décor.
  • Upgraded version is available if this size isn’t big enough.

A common complaint with this air fryer is that its non-stick coating is not durable. Some consumers are saying that the coating peels or flakes off. For some it is coming off within the first month, for others, it takes longer. One indicates that after using it 2-3 times weekly, the coating came off in chunks. This renders the item unusable and potentially toxic. However, this coating will flake off on any appliance when over-heated or heated past 500 degrees. Other negatives to this product include:

  • 30-day warranty on the basket which makes it difficult to return risk-free if coating begins to chip.
  • Not all food is crisped equally. You may have good luck with potatoes and potato products, but find that larger and heavier items like chicken and meats need more time or more thorough cooking.
  • Temperature accuracy fluctuates. At 350 degrees Fahrenheit for example, you might wind up with an actual heat of 340. This could lead you to turn up the heat which will impact the integrity of the non-stick coating.


Our rating: 4.7 / 5

The Gowise USA Ming’s Mark Electric Air Fryer is an air fryer that will not take up room on your counter as its compact design allows you to easily replace many appliances that may be consuming valuable real estate there now. It is easy to use and cooks almost any food deliciously, but you will have to play around with the settings on different foods when you are looking for your own personal crisp preferences. That said, it does cook almost every food item, including cakes and even donuts. Its crisp factors and features work best on foods you would normally fry anyway, such as onion rings and French fries. The donuts, you might want to save for a different appliance or cooking method.

It beats its deep fryer counterparts in health benefits and also in use. A traditional fryer will heat up the home, be a safety hazard, and cause oil smells for long after its use. This air fryer does not carry those risks.

It is said to cook for large quantities, but you will have to do so in spurts. It won’t cook an entire meal for one family at once. Even so, its power and convenience as well as ease-of-use make it a good air fryer that is worth the purchase. There aren’t many cons to this air fryer that should make it not worth the purchase. Non-stick coating on any appliance is tricky to work with at best. Take good care of it and don’t overuse it, and the issue with the coating may not apply in your case.
