NuWave Brio 15.5-Quart Air Fryer Review

NuWave Brio 38006 is an air fryer with 15.5 quart capacity.


NuWave Brio 38006 cooks well. Chicken comes out very juicy and tender on the inside with a nice crispy skin on outside. French fries are so good and so are the onion rings fried with NuWave Brio. Everything seems to taste delicious as long as you get the settings right. Even reheating food works significantly better than with microwave (it tastes better).

One particularly cool thing that you don’t see on other air fryers is that this one comes with temperature probe so you will always know when meat is properly cooked to the level you want.

NuWave Brio 15.5-quart air fryer also comes with rotisserie kit so you can cook a small chicken inside it but this is not exclusive feature as many other air fryers in this size and price range also come with one.

It also comes with grill plate that will leave grill marks on steaks like you cooked them on a real grill.

There are some negatives too. Since it’s larger air fryer preheat might take longer than it does with smaller units. Another flaw is had is that sides of the air fryer can get hot while cooking.
