Possible issues

Some of the consumers have complained about burnt smell when cooking. It’s absolutely normal for air fryers to emit burnt smell the first time you use them but after that there shouldn’t be any.

It’s often recommended you clean the basket and then cook sliced pieces of lemon or lemon juice mixed with vinegar for 15-20 minutes before cooking anything for the first time. If the smells persists then try removing silicone tabs from tray.

If the smell persists then perhaps this is one of the rare cases you received defective unit. In this case you should try to get replacement.

This issue doesn’t seem to be too common however since there have been some cases I thought it’s important to mention what you should do if you experience it.


Control panel is pretty straight-forward. There is a total of 10 different buttons and dial for adjustments. Two of the buttons are “Time” and “Temp” – pressing them will allow you to make adjustments with the dial. Another two buttons are “Start” and “Cancel” – pretty self-explanatory. The rest of the buttons are for 6 cooking modes.


Air fry basket and tray have non-stick coating applied to them making them easy to clean.

Instructions are very bare and there’s some learning curve with an air fryer.


Instant Vortex Plus 4 quart air fryer is affordable and cooks well. It’s not as large as most other models which is good if you want to save some counterspace however this also means you won’t be able to cook as much in 1 batch (but you can still cook for 2-3 persons).
