Big Boss 16-Quart Air Fryer Review
Big Boss 9095 air fryer stands out among the competition. It’s one of the least expensive air fryers you can purchase yet with 16-quart cooking capacity it’s significantly larger than other models of similar pricing. Big Boss air fryer can cook in temperatures as high as 480°F whereas most air fryers in this price class only go as high as 400°F.
So with that being said is it really better than competition and is there a reason why it offers so much for so little?
Big Boss air fryer cooks really well. Everything comes out delicious, moisture doesn’t escape so meat ends up really juicy on inside. Also gives that crispy texture on foods like bacon, potatoes, french fries, chicken and so on. Maybe not as crispy as with the best air fryers but still pretty decent nonetheless.
Big Boss air fryer is an inexpensive air fryer and you can kinda tell it. Not that it’s badly made but the build quality is not up to par of air fryers that cost twice or triple of Big Boss air fryer. If you use it with some care it shouldn’t be a problem though. Cooking bowl is made of ceramic glass whereas most of air fryer from engineered ABS (which is basically plastic).
Controls of Big Boss air fryer are very basic which seems to be another place where they saved money. It’s not necessary a bad thing as basic controls make it very simple to use. It just has 2 dials (one for selecting temperature and the other one for cooking time), 2 indicator lights (“Power” and “Heat”) and handle that works as an on/off switch (down position = air fryer on; up position = air fryer off).
It doesn’t have LCD display or presets that other air fryers do. Whether you really need those is up to you to decide. Preset functions don’t always work great on all air fryers but on those that they do it makes cooking very simple.
Big Boss air fryer comes with multiple accessories including extender ring (increases cooking height by 3 inches), two cooking racks, mesh basket, sprayer and tongs.
Big Boss air fryer features safety systems like overheat protection and automatic shut off. It’s ETL Listed and FDA compliant.
Big Boss air fryer is fairly simple and basic air fryer in the way it’s made however this reduced cost of manufacturing and allowed to offer perks that other air fryers in this price class don’t. Big Boss air fryer cooks well and offers huge cooking capacity resulting in a good value for money.
