What people are saying
This family-size air fryer has more than 4,400 customer reviews on Amazon Canada and an impressive 4.7-star rating from customers who say they love how easy it is to make their favourite recipes using virtually no oil.
“I was always hesitant to buy air fryer because my friends kept telling me the taste would be different- but man, I was wrong,” one Amazon shopper wrote. “This Ultrean Air Fryer did not disappoint. The taste of the variety of recipes that I made were similar or better than frying it with oil, and the quality of the material is top notch... Easy cleaning and healthy cooking for me!”
"I was on a hunt for a new air fryer with a capacity to cook a whole chicken. Not only did this cook the most amazing tasting chicken that was so moist, it did it in even less time than the guide said it would," another wrote. "I have been using this air fryer daily since it arrived and I am more and more surprised by the quality of food from this. I even ordered the accessories package and have done a cake in it!"

One thing to note about this air fryer is that it can take up quite a bit of counter space, however shoppers have noted that it’s worth it considering how much food you are able to prepare.
I haven't had much of a chance to put it through the paces as yet, but so far so good for what we have tried. The unit is huge, in both great and less than great ways. The 8.5qt basket is wonderful to have, but the space the unit takes up on the shelf is daunting,” said another Amazon customer. “It's also quite loud, but I don't have enough experience with air fryers to know how common this is. The price was great for the capacity though, it wasn't much more than the 6qt for almost 50% more volume.”
Still, some Amazon shoppers have said that unless you're prepared to use the air fryer often, it might not be worth your while to order one this large without having ample storage space.

"We decided it was too big to keep on the counter and would not use it often enough to make it worth while," a shopper wrote. "The food was crispy, but just one more appliance to tuck in a cupboard."
Since air fryers have become such a popular kitchen accessory, it’s important to invest in one that suits your needs and space. If you’re looking for a unit that can prepare enough food for a family of four plus leftovers, the Ultrean Air Fryer might be for you. Plus, it comes with a one-year warranty. However if you don't have a ton of space in your kitchen, this fryer may be too overwhelming for your needs.
The air fryer is currently on sale from just $115— but as with most Amazon deals, this deal won’t last long — so. if you're looking to snap it up, hurry!
