Kalorik is a brand that is loved by millions and has been around for more than 90 years. They have just come out with a bunch of new air fryers so I thought an updated version of this Kalorik air fryer review.

All of their new air fryer models are very good so it is a legit question to ask which one you should get. Kalorik makes air fryer of all types and sizes so its not only a matter of question which is the best but what are your needs.

And in this article this is exactly what we’ll explore.

The models included in this Kalorik air fryer review:

Kalorik MAXX 7QT 7-in-1 A great basket type air fryer with 21 presets (!!) and some unique accessories.

Kalorik MAXX Air fryer ovenAn all-in-one 26 quart air fryer oven that is one of the highest rated air fryer ovens in the US.

Kalorik Air Fryer LidA new comer on the market that you can use on any 8-10 QT pot. A game changer in my opinion.

So let’s jump into this Kalorik air fryer review and see their best models.

Best Basket-type Kalorik Air Fryer: Kalorik MAXX 7QT 7-in-1

kalorik air fryer review - 7QT
Why we like it:
A lot of presets to choose from
Cool unique accessories
Stainless steel design

No shake alert
Once you pause it you have to start the program again
Fires preset is a bit too long

Kalorik has come up with a new line of basket type air fryers under the MAXX brand.

You can get it in different sizes: 4QT, 6QT, 7QT.

It has 21 smart perets and 7 cooking functions which is very very generous if you ask me. Most air fryers have 4-6 in this category. It has presets that I have never seen before (for example tofu).

So the full list of presets are the following: Air fry, Fries, Chicken, Wings, Nuggets, Pizza, Burger, Bacon, Ribs, Lamb, Steak, Fish, Salmon, Shrimp, Bake, Veggies, Potato, Tofu, Defrost, Reheat, Warm.

It heats up to 450 degrees which is also an advantage since most basket type air fryers heat up to usually 400 degrees. This will cook certain foods (that are harder to burn) faster.

In terms of design it has a very sleek high quality stainless steel case. For me it is a big advantage because many air fryer use a low quality plastic design for the outer layer of the basket. Also the basket is square shaped which is more pragmatic compared to the round shaped basket because the same amount of quarts can hold more food.

You can get it in natural steel and black color.

I prefer the 7 quart version because it can serve 4 people and also it comes with some cool accessories:

  • Egg tray (haven’t seen this one with other brands)
  • Cake barrel
  • Skewer set
  • Silicon pad

As with all air fryers there are some minor issues that can hurt the experience. With the Kalorik one is that if you pause it and start again it will restart the program. For me its not a dealbreaker but its annoying of course.

Also some preset timer is off a bit so it might need a bit of experimenting in the beginning but this is true for most air fryers too so nothing new. I didn’t see any customer review that would say the preset ruined their food. Since it’s a new model there isn’t a lot of customer ratings but all of them a re 4-5 stars so it’s a good indication of the product quality.

Best Air Fryer Oven:Kalorik MAXX 26 Quart Digital Air Fryer Oven Review

Kalorik MAXX air fryer-review
Why we like it
– 9 cooking methods and 21 presets
– Sleek design, especially the french door
– Cooks food in much less time. Very efficient.
– Comes with a lot of accessories

– More expensive than regular air fryers
– Doesn’t fit in small kitchens

On the top of our Kalorik air fryer review lies the Kalorik MAXX. It is an all-in-one air fryer oven that gives endless cooking possibilities. And that is exactly what I love about this model:

It combines many different functions into one machine which makes life easier when you’re trying to get dinner on the table after a long day at work or school – and saves space too since there aren’t separate pieces taking up valuable countertop real estate!

The Kalorik Air Fryer is a kitchen appliance that makes cooking food quickly and deliciously. It has 10 cooking methods, including air frying, baking, and roasting, so you can cook your favorite foods with the right amount of heat and pressure to get the best results for each dish.

The machine’s convection design circulates hot air around the food to create an even temperature throughout so there are no cold spots or undercooked areas where bacteria might grow faster than normal temperatures would allow them too – this means no more stirring needed every few minutes just because it feels like something wasn’t cooked all the way through yet (or worse yet accidentally burning things!).

Many customers claimed they have cooked their food half the time than recipe books recommended. The Kalorik MAXX can reach up to 500°F and it allows you to sear and caramelize steaks with it in just a couple of minutes.

We love the design of this piece. It has a French door that looks very cool and it is easy to open and close. It is lightweight compared to the size of the air fryer oven. They also include a recipe book that includes easy and straightforward recipes.

It comes with 9 accessories:

  • Steak Tray
  • Bacon Tray
  • Air Frying Basket
  • Air Rack
  • Rotisserie Spit and Fork
  • Baking Tray
  • Rack Handle
  • Crumb Tray
  • Rotisserie handle

The downside of the Kalorik MAXX air fryer oven is the price and the size. Compared to other air fryers the Kalorik MAXX is almost the double of the price than a simple air fryer. Also it will take up a large space on your countertop. But the benefits in our opinion outweigh the extra costs. It has endless cooking possibilities, and a very efficient cooking system that produces delicious foods in a very comfortable way. Because of these cooking possibilities we also recommend this product if you are a beginner.

If you have a big family and you are looking for a multifunctional machine with a cool design then this should be your choice. So for the price you pay it is very good value, since it performs very well and it saves you time compared to other air fryers on the market.

A new type of air fryer: Kalorik Pro XL 5.3 X Quart Digital Air Fryer Review

kalorik air fryer review - lid
Why we like it
Can be used on pots, pans and multi-cookers
It fits on different sized pots, pans
Very good price point
You have to be careful when you take off the lid after cooking not to burn yourself

Turn anything into an air fryer? Sounds awesome, doesn’t it? This new air fryer lid from Kalorik does exactly that.

It is basically only the air fryer heater and ventilation system that can be fitted on a 6-10 QT pressure cooker and a 8-10 QT pot or pan as you can see the picture below.

It has 4 predefined presets that you can use: Fries, Wings, Steak and Preheat. If you press the M button you can choose your desired setting. You can also set your own temperature level and timing of course.

To use it you just put it on your pot or pan and pull downt the safety bar until you hear a click. This will make your pot air tight and ensure the even flow of hot air inside it.

An obvious upside of the Kalorik lid that it is small and you can store it easily.

Another advantage is that you can use it on different sized pots/pans/multicookers and make it very versatile.

I also like that it has a see through lid and you can check the texture of your food anytime.

The price point is very competitive in my opinion. It is almost unbeatable if you think you can air fry in a 10 quart pot. Most 10 quart air fryers go for twice the price.

The only downside of this product is that you have to be much more careful than with a regular air fryer not to burn yourself. You have to leave the lid on the pot for 2 more minutes when the setting finishes so it can cool off.

Kalorik Brand Review

The brand Kalorik was established in Belgium during 1930 to bring out electric appliances using the fine engineering and the best technology. The very first product that the brand brought out was electric toasters which did very good in the market and the owner of the brand aimed to bring pout even more amazing products.

Currently, the air fryers of Kalorik are surely one of the popular choices in the market. Along with a large number of models and remains high in terms of quality they have surely made making a huge number of recipes in a healthy way possible without the requirement of using oil.

Kalorik has a very high average rating for all their models. On Amazon for example most of their models are 90% 4-5 stars and some models have more than 8,000 reviews so you can be sure that quality is a top seller in the air fryer industry.

Some reviews include:

„I have several air fryers and never liked the results. This one is not only much easier to use, but it works so much better!”

“This Air Fryer worked exceptionally well I baked trout and air fried brussels sprouts that came out so good my kids cleaned their plates!”

Reviewing Kalorik Air Fryers vs. other models

Compared to other models Kalorik have a very sleek and well made design thanks to their stainless steel case. In terms of popularity I think its just below Ninja and Cosori. The only thing I am missing from the Kalorik models compared to some competitors is the smart function like in the Cosori Smart XL that is Wi-Fi enabled and can be integrated with the smartphone.

On the other hand the new Kalorik models have so much presets and many of them come with several accessories. I think on that note it is much better. The Cosori only has 11 presets which is a lot too but compared to the 21 presets the Kalorik wins.

This is important if you want to greatly rely on the machine and don’t want to experiment too much. This is important mostly for an air fryer beginner. In terms of price Kalorik is not the cheapest but it is in the category of Ninja and Cosori. It is more expensive than more simpler brands like Chefman.
