CHEFMAN Compact 4.6-Qt. Air Fryer Review (RJ38-SQ-45T)

CHEFMAN RJ38-SQ-45T is a small air fryer with 4.6 quart capacity large enough to cook for 2 persons at a time.


CHEFMAN RJ38-SQ-45T air fryer works great despite being one of the least expensive models. It cooks well – food comes out delicious and crispy. Since you don’t have to use any oil the flavor is pure and food healthy. With that being said you might want to spray a slight amount of oil on some foods like French Fries for extra crispiness.

Being a cheaper model there are no presets so you have to find and select temperature setting manually. Some experimentation might be necessary.

CHEFMAN RJ38-SQ-45T doesn’t heat up your kitchen like an oven would.
