Rated 1 out of 5Â by Nothappy333 This fryer doesn't fry, doesn't do anything
This product does NOT work. I followed the directions in the booklet to prepare frozen French fries. After 20 minutes, it wasn't working. So I turned the temperature all the way up. After 90 minutes, the food still wasn't cooked - it even was partially frozen.
I managed to find an email address for the product - the customer service numbers supplied with the fryer were not for this product. Two months ago, I was told I'd get a replacement but I'm still waiting. I emailed the company again two weeks ago - and now, there's not even a response to my emails.
Poor product, poor customer service.

My entire family loves this appliance. It is great for snack food such as taquitos and pizza rolls. I've made breaded okra, breaded fish and chicken, salmon patties, and toasted nuts and soybeans. It makes great French fries and I'm sure it would make good toast and grilled cheese. The cooking area is about the size of a small plate and it cooks fast. The directions say to spray with olive oil but that didn't work too well with my mister so I've been using the spray butter and it works great. It cooks fast - 7 minutes to cook 7 taquitos. Cleanup is almost fun. It washes itself for the most part. I think it is a little big so I leave it on my counter. I'm not wild about that but I use it a lot. It's great for families with teenagers or picky eaters. My grandson (12) uses it. I will always own one so if this one stops working, I will be buying another one. I would recommend this oil-less fryer.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Jehuruth Takes longer to cook and not fried taste
I have been hungry for Fried Chicken. I have a Nu-Wave, but it doesn't give a fried taste. So I bought the Big Boss. Following their instructions in their cookbook, I made fried chicken.
First, while it looked like it was frying while cooking, it didn't come close even tasting fried.
Second, at the end of time in their cookbook, the skin was done, looked good, but the chicken was way under cooked. When I cooked it till the chicken was done, the skin was burnt.
Third, for as big as the product is, it doesn't cook much. Definitely not family sized. In order to cook enough for me and my two boys, I would have to have two Big Bosses to make enough chicken and another one or two to make a side like fries.
This product was a real disappointment.
