What were the results of the 4 major dishes we tested with Brentwood air fryer?

1.) Bacon dumplings

We had a streak of dishes to test on with this air fryer, but we finalized four dishes to score the performance of this model. The very first out of these dishes was Bacon dumplings and breaking the suspense; the taste was heaven!

We also tried preparing the same dish in Dash Tasti Crisp and Simple Chef air fryer, but results weren’t that appealing.

This air fryer prepared the dish in time (does a faster job than most similar air fryers out there). Once dumplings were prepared, one of our testers exclaimed that the color of the outer crust wasn’t exactly what it should be.

Yes, it wasn’t that brownish, but we can’t say, “it looked ugly” at all. Well, no one can fill the stomach by just staring at the dish, so finally, those dumplings were finally in our mouths.

From a little air fryer that costs around $80, we were in no way expecting the dumplings to be so tasty! most importantly, even the center part of the dumplings was perfect, and talking about the crust; it was crispy enough to make you say “yummmm.”

So, for the dumplings, it deserves a solid 9.5 score out of 10!

2.) Chicken breasts

Talking about Chicken breasts, undoubtedly it’s so rich in protein, but the issue for which most of the kids and also oldies with weak teeth prefer chicken thighs instead of breasts is its hardness. It’s hard to chew when we deep fry thick chicken breasts, but that was exactly what we wanted to test with Brentwood’s model.

We sliced thick breasts just to figure out how well does this air fryer cook it from within. Does it cook the breasts tender soft without overcooking it from out, or does it provide “hard to chew’ pieces like the other air fryer in our test did (no, we won’t tell the name)? Well, it beat Bella 1.2 qt air fryer in this testing.

Once again, this little air fryer impressed us with its “overall perfect” cooking. We included little children and 60+ oldies as our volunteers. Everyone was chilling with the juicy, tender chicken breast. The remarks were positive from the experts (we weren’t left behind in grabbing), children, and oldies.

One oldie went a bit far by saying – “KFC should use this air fryer to make their stuff a bit softer.”

3.) French Fries

We’d make a big mistake if we conclude the Brentwood air fryer review without explaining whether this model does justice with French fries or not. Till now, the majority of us worry 3-4 times before ordering French fries because of its “heavy calories” nature. The president has changed, and so has the time (maybe pulled Mr. Joe Biden here without much of reason, lol).

Brentwood air fryer

When we pulled out fries and quickly transferred them to the bowl, the reason was that all 4 kids were extremely excited about the fries, because one of our testers explained to them the fake theory that Michael Jackson became Michael Jackson after grabbing Fries from this air fryer daily!

Oh Gosh!

Coming back to normal now, the kids wasted no time before putting the fries in the mouth, and then it was the time to gather their reviews!

The reviews, as per our expectations, were awesome, and we were requested to prepare one more batch of fries. Not forgetting to say – no matter, it’s a 3.4 qt model. Still, the number of fries it prepared was truly appreciable. Paula Dean air fryer 9.5 qt is a bigger sized model to consider.

4.) Lemon Air-Baked Chicken Thighs

The best thing we prepared with this air fryer was an awesome dish recommended by our sir’s stupid neighbor – “Lemon Air-Baked Chicken Thighs.

Well, everything can’t be explained in words, and that’s the reason, rather than explaining how well did this model prepared Lemon Air-Baked Chicken Thighs, we’d recommend you to try it by yourself once! Yes, we truly mean it.

We also recommend you not to share it with your neighbor. Otherwise, you’ll find him standing at your door every afternoon, with a bowl in his hand.

Brentwood Select Air Fryer (3.4qt) Review: Finally, we conclude!


So, after reading all that, what you’ve got to say about Brentwood select air fryer?

Certainly, on the basis of performance, one can hardly criticize this 3.4 qt. air fryer. Also, the amount of food this little fryer prepares in a single batch is also appreciable.

Now, talking about features, we’d say, everything one needs, is present, and even more importantly, no feature confuses you at all. After that, cleaning is also as easy as it is with some other much expensive models. Regarding durability also, we’d give it 9.6 score out of 10, and it actually passed our drop down test.

But yes, we’d recommend you to be safe while using air fryers, as these appliances may easily get damaged if dropped down from the kitchen’s platform.
