The Secura Hot Air Fryer was a decent contender in our testing. It tied for the second-best score on our food frying tests and was one of the best at cooking evenly, though it did have darker and lighter spots in some batches. As with any air fryer, you can prevent uneven cooking by shaking the basket to rotate the food, but the Secura did a decent job even when we didn’t shake the basket, and that's impressive.
The dial-controlled fryers like this are always a little harder to control and to get specific temperatures. At least the Secura has relatively large letters so it's easier to read. If you prefer a digital display, check out the NuWave Brio.
This air fryer ties for the second largest in terms of overall dimensions, and it also seems quite large next to the others due to its design, which is wider at the bottom. It's probably not your best option if you have limited counter space.
The Secura will shut itself down after a cooking cycle. It also has non-skid feet and stays cool to the touch so it scores high for safety. It is a good fit for those who have kids in their household. This is also a good fit for families because of its large capacity. The basket is huge, fitting almost twice as much food as some of the smaller competitors.
The two-year warranty on this one is nice. That is double what most of our tested products have. This air fryer doesn’t have instructional videos, though these products are not all that hard to use.
More on Fryers
Most of the fryers we reviewed were louder than we expected, but this was one of the quieter ones. All but two of them were louder than this one. The Secura also gets a perfect score for cleaning. The non-stick basket was easy to clean in the sink, in seconds. It can also go in the dishwasher if you want to save even more time.
The Secura Hot Air Fryer has all of the important safety features and offers easy cleaning and quiet operation. It churned out some really good food. Its large capacity, and associated bulky design, is bad for cramped quarters but good for feeding a crowd, which makes it a great option for large families.
