DASH DMAF355GBAQ02 Deluxe Electric Air Fryer Review
DASH DMAF355GBAQ02 Deluxe (also sold as DMAF355 / DMAF355GBBK02 / DMAF355GBRD02 / DMAF355GBWH02) is electric air fryer with 3 quart cooking basket and 1200 Watt power supply.
It cooks well and food ends up tasting great if you get temperature and cooking time settings right. Bacon turns out crisp and delicious, chicken wings are crispy on outside but juicy on inside without being dry. French fries, onion rings and veggies are near perfect as well.
DASH DMAF355GBAQ02 Deluxe doesn’t have cooking presets like some other air fryers do, but it comes with a manual that includes recommended cooking temperatures/times as well some recipes.
Basket capacity is 3 quarts which is enough to cook for 1-2 people at a time but for a family of 4 it won’t be enough. Small size is nice in a sense it won’t take up a lot of counterspace but it also limits you in what you can cook, for example you won’t be able to cook a whole chicken in it as it won’t fit inside the basket.
Overall build quality doesn’t feel bad but neither it’s amazing. Some of the plastic parts do feel a bit cheap and might not last for many years.
Controls are pretty simple. You get two dials – one for temperature and the other one for cooking time.
There are some nuances though. DASH DMAF355GBAQ02 Deluxe air fryer uses mechanical timer so you can’t reset it to 0 or decrease the time. If you accidentally set cooking time longer than desired you will have to wait until that excess time goes by.
Another issue is that temperature and cooking time settings are written in small letters so it can be hard to read for those of bad eyesight. For this reason it might not be the best choice for elderly even though it’s very simple to use.
Basket is nonstick and dishwasher safe making it super easy to clean. Cool-touch housing and handle will prevent them from getting hot and burning your hand.
You can choose between 4 colors:
- Aqua/green (DASH DMAF355GBAQ02)
- Black (DASH DMAF355GBBK02)
- Red (DASH DMAF355GBRD02)
- White (DASH DMAF355GBWH02)
Size and weight
DASH Deluxe air fryer weighs 8.8 pounds and measures 12.6’’ by 10.4’’ by 13’’.
DASH DMAF355GBAQ02 Deluxe is a very basic air fryer but it cooks well, is simple to use and is relatively compact. It’s hard to say it’s the best you can get for money but in some cases it can be good choice depending on what you are looking for.
