"The NuWave 10 Quart’s square shape give it a unique look unlike anything you’d expect to normally see from an air fryer."
As we’ve seen before with the NuWave Brio, NuWave are currently making some of the most innovative and smartly made home appliances in the world, and the NuWave 10 Quart Air Fryer is no exception. Allowing you to cook beautiful fried foods in the healthiest way possible, the NuWave 10 Quart can help you to reduce the amount of fat you consume from eating foods such French fries and chicken wings. With helpful and innovative features such as a retractable moisture control vent and an automatic pre-heating feature, the NuWave 10 Quart Air Fryer is one of NuWave’s best air fryers yet and could be a fantastic addition to your kitchen environment.
From a design perspective, the NuWave 10 Quart Air Fryer is certainly an attractive appliance that could look fantastic in your kitchen. The NuWave 10 Quart’s square shape give it a unique look unlike anything you’d expect to normally see from an air fryer. However, its distinctive shape does lead to certain design issues, mainly with its large size. Weighing a whole 20 pounds, the NuWave 10 Quart Air Fryer is definitely on the bigger end of the scale. Even though most air fryers are heavier than the majority of other kitchen appliances, they are still usually light and small enough to easily carry around. The NuWave 10 Quart may cause slightly more inconvenience when attempting to move it, and you may struggle when trying to move it to different areas of your kitchen. And with dimensions of 15 x 17.5 x 14.5 inches, the NuWave 10 Quart is also quite large, meaning that not only will you have certain difficulty in carrying the appliance, it may be quite hard for you to find a suitable spot in your kitchen to actually put it.
Furthermore, the design of the NuWave 10 Quart means that the air fryer works by flipping up the top, which takes up an even bigger space in your kitchen. If you’ve got a relatively small kitchen that doesn’t quite have the room for huge kitchen appliances, then the NuWave 10 Quart may not be particularly suitable for your kitchen and you may want to have a look at something like the Dash Compact Air Fryer instead. The NuWave 10 Quart Air Fryer is made up of mostly plastic and only comes in the default colour of black. Compared to many air fryers, the NuWave 10 Quart isn’t too loud when being used and shouldn’t distract you too much. There is also a 1 year warranty placed on the NuWave 10 Quart Air Fryer that covers you if you are unhappy with the quality of your product.
Ease of Use
The NuWave 10 Quart air fryer is a well performing air fryer that can help you cook some of your favourite fried foods in the way that you love. Fries made in the NuWave 10 Quart are deliciously crispy and tasty despite the fact that they’re not completely saturated in oil like they are with a normal deep fryer. The same goes for chicken, which manages to be cooked evenly in the middle while still remaining crispy and juicy on the outside. One element of the NuWave 10 Quart Air Fryer that enables it to cook the most beautiful fried food is its retractable vent that helps with moisture control. This vent allows you to control the amount of moisture going into the air fryer, allowing you to keep your fried food at its succulent best.
Despite the trouble’s that the NuWave 10 Quart’s size can cause when you have to move it, the capacity that it boasts can certainly make up for this.

As you’d expect from an air fryer this big, the NuWave 10 Quart Air Fryer can get very hot on both the inside and the outside while it is being used. However, in order to prevent the risk of burning and any other dangers, the NuWave 10 Quart has its own auto-shut off feature to minimise risks.

The NuWave 10 Quart has LED touch pad controls and a variety of different multi-stage cooking functions that it can perform.
Depending on your personal preferences, you can choose between its automatic pre-heat setting, which automatically pre-heats the fryer for you without you having to set your own temperature; the warm function, that enables you to keep your food warm for a while once the fryer has completed cooking; and the delay setting that allows you to delay the start of the fryer’s cooking. The reheat function also allows you to automatically cook for 4 minutes at 360°F, adding to the NuWave 10 Quart’s versatility. Moreover, the NuWave 10 Quart Air Fryer has really accurate temperature control settings ranging from 100-400°F, giving you a huge amount of power in how you like to cook your food.
