Kalorik MAXX® AFO 46045 SS Digital Air Fryer Oven Review

Kalorik MAXX® AFO 46045 SS is a digital air fryer oven with 26 quart cooking capacity. It can cook, dehydrate and defrost in temperatures ranging from to 80°F to 500°F (most air fryers only go up to 400°F!) but is it better than competitors?


Kalorik MAXX® AFO 46045 SS Digital Air Fryer Oven

Kalorik MAXX air fryer oven does cook quite well, for the most part at least. Sometimes you can notice it cooks unevenly however in most cases food comes out tasty and flavorful. It makes food like French Fries crispy on outside and soft on inside.

Kalorik MAXX air fryer oven has 21 presets or cooking modes (air fry, chicken, warm, ribs, shrimp, steak, wings, bacon, fish, corn, french fries, dehydrate, defrost and veggies). Most presets actually overcook the food so you might want to decrease cooking time a bit.

Another issue is that the housing can get quite hot during cooking, including the handle. It’s also not uncommon for some condensation to build up on the window.


Accessories

Kalorik MAXX air fryer oven comes with A LOT of accessories including air frying basket, baking tray, air rack, crumb tray, bacon tray, steak tray, rotisserie spit & forks, rack handle and rotisserie handle. These accessories widen your cookies possibilities which is certainly nice.


Controls

Controls are very simple. There are just 5 buttons and a dial for adjustments. Instead of each preset having its own button there’s one for cycling through them. Some might dislike this as it takes longer to choose the preset you need but others might like that air fryer isn’t overcrowded with buttons.


Quality

The overall build quality is a bit shoddy. Doors are uneven, knob is a bit wobbly, the air fryer just doesn’t feel as sturdy as some of the competitors.


Verdict

Kalorik MAXX is a decent air fryer oven but it’s not the best due to some of the flaws. Models like like COSORI CS100-AO, CROWNFUL TO5712T-UL, Ommo OM-AFO868 or Emeril Everyday 360 Deluxe seem to be better options overall.
