I like the one with the rotating basket, much more expensive, but useful for multiple things.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus

Mine said to wash it before using. I always heat it up for 2-3 min before putting the food in. It shouldn't have any taste of its own though. I used mine tonight (tater tots) they came out really crispy and browned nicely about 15 min. Mine is just a simple one 3.5l capacity. I just love the thing but I wish it held more, I have to fix my wifes and then do mine after hers is ready.

I went on line and found that the plastic smell is a common issue. Three suggestions came up. add some water with, baking soda, lemon juice or vinegar. I ran it 20 minutes with each of them and then twice with just clean water. First couple times it amazed me how brown the water was and yes we did wash it before we used it the first time. Seems the problem comes with the sealer they put over the electronics giving off odor when its heated. they said if you don't go through the cleaning process it still will go away after a dozen or so uses. It made a big difference.

When all else fails, read the instructions! :-)

wife says I have problems in that department. But the smell was there and the instructions didn't say a thing. Internet search brought up pages conserning it though.

As I have aged I've learned more and more that it pays to read the instructions. I'v also learned that with almost everything we buy today made "overseas" the instructions maybe be anywhere from good to terrible and sometimes almost impossible to translate into understandable english.

found the trick to pork chops and skinless chicken. Put a bit of cooking oil on your hand and rub it evenly over the surface and just use a like coating of something like fry majic, drakes ect. Comes out great. That said please tell my wife to start buying chicken with skin on it again!!!!! To much coating and it sucks. You just get a gummy mess that doesn't really brown. French fries are ok. Probably a bit better then the oven but sure are like fried in oil frys. Does real well on frozen junk food like chicken tenders, poppers, mozzella sticks, even fish sticks.

To make adding a little oil to things,I use a spray bottle with cooking oil,or olive oil in it. Just give things a little spray and you are done. I got the bottle at Dollar General it was around a dollar
