A Useful Life Hack

The Instant Vortex Air Fryer is attractively designed , its facade consisting of alternating stainless steel and a black bakelite like material. 

Note however that its interior is ALL stainless steel. 

That black bottom in the fry compartment is actually waxed or otherwise shiny cardboard.

It should be removed for best results.

1 Did you burn down your trailer?
Also, is yours as loud as ours? We have a more basic one and it's LOUD.

2 No, the house is still here....There is no visible damage to the kitchen either.

There is an aroma that is taking time to dissipate.. 

The vortex fryer is not as loud as I'd feared, being on par with the overhead fan above the stove. 
Note though that I was expecting it to be very loud, having seen the models in some convenience stores.

3 I can't count the number of times I've found protective plastic strips on appliances and electronics after using them for months or years, but fortunately none of them were in temperature-sensitive locations.

Well, except for the batch of 1U rackmount servers where all the vents were on top, covered by nearly-invisible plastic sheeting. We caught it before turning them on, but after most were already racked.

I've got a Philips air fryer, but after the initial novelty wore off, I went back to using my convection toaster oven for most things. The fans don't circulate the hot air as fast, but it's quieter, easier to clean, and more versatile. Also, a steady diet of chicken nuggets and french fries isn't good for my girlish figure. :-)

Well, yeah, because what you need for a healthy life is a steady diet of fried chicken and steak, preferably each with a side dish of edamane soybeans as well.
