I bought this air fryer at COSTCO for $39. I thought it's time to give the Air Fryer a try. I have been satisfied with the countertop electric convection oven frying my French Fries, but with so many advertisement proudly displaying a nice crispy French Fries on the boxes, I thought it must be different and superior. Well, the Gourmia I bought was nothing but a terrible hazard to health air fryer.
I was so happy to get one, and I tried making French fries and air fry vegetables. The box has a big message stating that there will be Odors during the heating. I thought it will be a minor odor just for the 1st few minutes, if longer - maybe 10 minutes the most. But this appliance emitted Teflon fume in the house that I could not breath, and if I had a Canary in the house, it would surely had killed it. I had my kitchen window, patio door, three fans and exhaust fans all going to get rid of the toxic fume. The odor lingered on curtains and each every room for 2 days even with full house air cleaner going and even after spraying with the Lysol. So, Sadly, I returned it.
