Being one of the more popular air fryer manufacturers GoWise USA makes many different models which might beg the question – which is the one to buy? In this article you will find out which of the GoWise USA air fryers are the best, which models fit your needs as well what are their strengths and weakness.
#1 GoWISE USA GW22971 7-Quart Air Fryer & Dehydrator
GoWISE USA GW22971 is an air fryer with 1700 watt heating element and 7 quart cooking basket (large enough to cook for 4-5 people). It can cook (180° to 400°F) and dehydrate (90° to 170°F).
GoWISE USA GW22971 cooks fast and well. It turns food crispy without losing any moisture/juices inside. Works really great for all kinds of meats like steaks, chicken wings, bacon and so on.
Don’t assume that it doesn’t do a good job of cooking other types of food as well because it does. Onion rings, french fries, veggies and many other meals come out delicious.
GoWISE USA GW22971 comes with three mesh racks that can be stacked over each other allowing you to cook more food at the same time. It also comes with removable crisper tray that improves heat circulation around food which in turn makes it more crispy. The crisper tray has PFOA-free non-stick coating making it easy to clean.
GoWISE USA GW22971 has 8 presets: air fry, roast, broil, bake, grill, dehydrate, keep warm and preheat. They give you a good idea of what settings you should use but some adjustments might be necessary for best results.
GoWISE USA GW22971 has one of the better control panels due to the having more functionality than most other air fryers have. GoWISE USA GW22971 air fryer is equipped with LCD display and 15 touch sensitive buttons.
8 of those buttons are for presets, two for adjusting temperature and another two for adjusting cooking time. Of course there’s also “Power/Start/Pause” button which is self-explanatory.
Then there’s “Sound” button which allows you to turn on or off the sound (most other air fryers don’t have this option). “Alarm” button gives you option to set audible alarm that will go off after 5, 10, 15 or 30 minutes (can be useful for various things like having a reminder to flip food over).
The temperature can be adjusted in 5 degree increments which you might not realize is an advantage. The reason why this is an advantage is that most air fryers only allow you to adjust temperature in 10 degree increments. Some recipes require temperatures that cannot be divided by 10 (i.e. 365°F or 385°F) so if your air fryer adjusts temperature in 10 degree increments you have to go either go degrees below or above the temperature indicated in recipe.
Cooking time can be adjusted in 1 minute increments from 1 to 60 minutes. If you use dehydrate preset then the time can be adjusted from 2 hours to 24 hours in 30 minute increments.
Overall GW22971 is the best air fryer from GoWise USA. It cooks well, has more functions than the average air fryer and is quite affordable.
