KITCHER KAF6501 6.8QT 1700W Air Fryer Review

KITCHER KAF6501 is one of the least expensive air fryers that’s big enough to cook for a family of four. It’s equipped with 6.8 quart basket and can cook from 180°F to 400°F. So how good is it really and does this air fryer possess any significant flaws?


Despite being on of the cheaper air fryers KITCHER KAF6501 cooks very well. It cooks fast, evenly and well. Foods turn out crispy on the outside and juicy inside. Fish, steak, french fries, vegetables and many other dishes end up tasting great.

KITCHER KAF6501 has 8 presets – steak, poultry, seafood, french fries, pizza, vegetables, bread and desserts. They work well as long as the basket is full with chosen food. If it’s not you do have to tinker with settings a bit to achieve best taste (usually decreasing cooking time slightly is enough).

Basket has vents on the sides which helps food to be cooked evenly however grease can leak out of them as well. Basket is also nonstick and quite easy to clean, easier than on most models despite the vents.

Control panel

KITCHER KAF6501 had LCD display with touch-sensitive controls. It’s not perhaps as intuitive as using regular buttons but control panel is responsive and isn’t hard to use.


Despite being rather inexpensive the build quality actually seems to be good. Stainless steel body makes it look great and feel more expensive than it actually is.


KITCHER KAF6501 6.8-quart air fryer is UL certified as well FCC and FDA compliant. It also comes with a recipe book (but it’s nothing extraordinary as most air fryers do).


KITCHER KAF6501 is hard to beat for money. It has a large basket, cooks well and feels pretty well made while not being too expensive.
