Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

For around the same price as an air fryer (the top models in our ratings cost $70 to $130), the Vortex not only air fries like a pro, but it also makes killer rotisserie chicken and dehydrates foods well—tasks other air fryers can't do.
The Vortex Plus has seven unique functions, and handy accessories like a rotisserie spit and air-fry basket.
The Instant Vortex Plus 7-in-1 Air Fryer Oven is more than just an air fryer—it’s a multi-use appliance that will save you time (and space) in the kitchen as it’s able to roast, broil, bake, reheat, dehydrate, air fry, and more.
All of the accessories — the racks, the rotisserie basket and fork — are dishwasher-safe.
The control panel is easy to navigate.
It requires an extremely low amount of oil and fats for cooking. In fact, the Vortex Air Fryer cuts down almost 80-85% of oil.
Able to fit two cooing trays at once
Air fries, rotisserie, bakes, roasts, broils, reheats, and dehydrates
It’s great for students in a college dorm with limited kitchen access or someone who needs small simple quick meals.

What reviewers didn't like

We found that it’s better at air frying, roasting, and reheating than it is at baking and broiling.
It will take some trial and error to get times and temperatures just right for your foods, and there are some design dilemmas.
Interior is a bit small considering the appliance’s overall size
Like the Instant Pot, there is a little bit of a learning curve if you plan to use the Vortex as a replacement for a toaster oven or a conventional oven out of the box.
The rotisserie basket is tricky to use and doesn’t give better results than the cooking trays for air frying.
This product word louder than a traditional oven
Setting a whole chicken might be hard initially, but you’ll get it soon enough
If you have a large family to feed or diet that leans towards steamed or raw then stick to your trusted Instant Pot pressure cooker.
