What gift do you get for the chef in your life who already has big-time appliances at their disposal? A smaller cooking appliance, of course. Portable cookers and air fryers are a great way for someone to take their passion for cooking and frying on the road with them. In addition, it makes for a great gift to anyone with limited space. Whether they’re a great cook who already has a top of the line oven, a student in a dorm room who can’t fit an oven into their living space, or someone who loves cooking while camping or RVing it up, a portable air fryer is the perfect gift.
For those looking to give the gift of a portable air fryer, this Rozmoz air fryer may be just the thing.
Features of the Rozmoz Air Fryer
Some of the most important features offered by this air fryer from Rozmoz include:
- Measures 12.9 in. x 12.9 in. x 14.6 in., weighs 13.17 lbs, operates at 1400 watts, heats up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
- Can cook most dishes within half an hour
- An included cookbook featuring 100 recipes
- Eight presets for cooking things such as chips, fish, shrimp, steak, pizza, and cake, giving you the ability to fry, grill, bake, roast, toast, and dehydrate different foods with the model’s 8-in-1 functionality
- Sleek white design with smart one-touch circular LCD screen
- Uses 85% less oil or fat than comparable fat fryers
- Locks in moisture nicely
- Nonstick coating on the bottom plate and fryer basket
- Heat-resistant handle
- Built-in auto-shutoff feature that activates when the basket is removed
As you can tell from that lengthy list, this Rozmoz air fryer is a case of big things coming in small packages. Despite its small size, it offers a buffet of cooking options and features. Even so, it is the size that is most immediately striking. At 12.9 in. x 12.9 in. x 14.6 in., it is certainly one of the smaller air fryers on the market. However, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing at all, especially when you add in that this model doesn’t even weigh 15 lbs. You aren’t going to get much more portable than that. At the same time, however, you may not be able to fit as much food into this fryer as other models.
Still, what does fit can be heated up relatively quickly, with the 30-minute ceiling for most recipes rarely being met. Usually, your cook time should be faster than that. If you aren’t sure what to cook, are new to the world of cooking, or are giving this as a gift to someone who is, the included cookbook is a nice touch. It can also help ease you into using your new air fryer, allowing you to get the hang of it with a couple of easier recipes before trying out your own.
LCD & Multiple Cooking Settings
The LCD design with its presets offers a variety of preset cooking options. What’s especially nice about this model is its versatility in how those presets are able to handle so many different kinds of cooking. Even though this is called an “air fryer,” it is still able to lightly roast or toast something, or be used to bake a cake or other pastries. Try baking a cake with other air fryers on the market and you’ll wind up with a charred husk of dough. This model’s versatility in cooking options helps keep it “fresh” long past the “expiration date” of boredom you may experience with other models.
In addition, this is an air fryer that eschews a lot of fatty oil for a cleaner, healthier method of circulating heat. This means that it is not only potentially healthier to use, but is also a lot easier to clean up after you’re done. If you have ever had to clean oil caked onto a fat fryer, you know it isn’t fun. This model lets you skip all of that with a model that eschews that messier style of cooking, instead offering something that cooks fast and is easier to clean – a win-win. Adding to that is the fact that this model is dishwasher-friendly.
Finally, this model shuts off automatically if the basket is detached, a good safety feature that can help prevent accidents.
Pros and Cons
As mentioned, this model is highly compact at under 15 lbs and with such a slight, cylindrical frame. This makes it incredibly easy to pick up and pack with you, making it a great choice as a portable air fryer. Even better, it is able to offer all of this without sacrificing anything in the way of versatility and overall performance. On the contrary, as mentioned above, it is able to handle a wide range of different types of cooking styles, and comes with eight presets that allow you to start the cooking process for these with ease. Add to that the fact this model cooks quite quickly with most recipes being finished in under half an hour, and that it is easy to clean, and the case for it is clear.
The case against it should be heard – if only because some users find the model a bit loud – but is ultimately outweighed by the positive elements. It can be a bit tricky at first to figure out how to turn the model off, but as long as you’re patient and follow the instructions you should be fine.
