What is the Bella Air 2.6 Fryer?
The Bella Air 2.6 Fryer is a convection style oven that uses the same technologies found in professional kitchens. A convection oven works by circulating heat throughout the oven to produce faster and more evenly cooking. The circulating air offers a safer and healthier alternative to traditional deep fryers.
The Bella Air uses little to no oil in the cooking process which means less mess and certainly less stress. Since the Bella Air uses little to no oil, you won’t have to worry about that nasty oil smell floating through your home.
And you won’t have to worry about having hot oil sitting in your kitchen.
The Bella Air comes in a sleek and stylish design, so you don’t have to worry about a cumbersome appliance taking up too much of your counter space. Conventional deep fryers tend to be larger and can be an eyesore in your kitchen.
With the Bella, you don’t have to worry about that.
The functionality and ease of use allow for a more efficient way of cooking fried foods. The product promises the same great taste with less fat.
What are some of the features of the Bella Air Fryer?
The Bella uses a 1,500-watt heating system, so it does not use a lot of energy.
The fryer comes with a 2.6-quart stainless steel frying tray which allows for faster heat up times and an evenly spread cooking time. The tray holds up to 2.2 pounds of foods which is more than enough for one family or even just yourself.
The frying tray is dishwasher safe, so cleanup is a simple and not as disgusting as wiping down a basket covered in oil.
The 60-minute timer and overheating protection allow for automatic shut-off after cooking. Unlike conventional deep fryers, after the job is done the Bella will turn itself off. You can quickly perform other household chores while the fryer is working, and you won’t have to stop what you are doing to make sure the device is turned off. It does that for you.
Since the Bella Air Fryer uses little to no oil, you won’t have to worry about the unpleasant odor of fried oil taking over your home. And no oil means less fat and fewer calories. Using less oil for cooking is great for anyone who is trying to eat healthier while still enjoying the foods they love.
You won't have to worry about oil getting all over your kitchen counter top either. Some traditional fryers tend to leave a nice sheen of oil on your counter tops and appliances. The Bella Air Fryer does not leave an oily residue because it uses little to now oil.

How Does the Bella Air Fryer Compare to Traditional Fryers?
The Bella Air Fryer uses little to no oil, so there is not a danger of the product overheating and smoking. Traditional fryers can overheat causing smoke to fill your kitchen and your home. Using oil to cook, especially in such a large quantity needed for a conventional fryer, is a health hazard.
Not only can the oil cause fires, it also adds more calories to your food. The Bella Air Fryer removes up to 60% of calories of fat from your fried foods. So, with Bella, you are not only preventing dangers in your kitchen but dangers to your health.
Ease of Use
The Bella Fryer uses automatic cooking controls that allow for a faster and easier cooking experience. The 60-minute timer and adjustable thermostat lets you have more control over the cooking functions.
Traditional fryers do not offer the same type of control over your cooking. Many do come with adjustable thermostats, but since cooking is done by using oil, the food can become over or undercooked. Babysitting a fryer is not something anyone wants to do.
The Bella Air Fryer is a 5 in 1 kitchen appliance that takes up less counter space and yet provides the same functionality of numerous kitchen gadgets. You can quickly switch between each function easily. Since the Bella comes with a clear instruction manual and recipe guide, you’ll be a master at using the Bella in no time.
Traditional fryers do only one thing. Fry food. Unlike the Bella Air Fryer, they do not come with the same variety of features, and they usually take up more counter space. A lot of traditional fryers on the market have a cumbersome design and tend to create an eyesore on your kitchen countertops.
Traditional fryers need a lot of oil to work which can cause a lot of unwanted messes in your kitchen. Using traditional fryers can create an unwanted layer of oil on your kitchen counter causing a slippery texture and a terrible smell.
With the Bella Air Fryer, you don’t have to worry about that. The cooking remains in the tray and no oil can escape since little to no oil is used in the cooking process.
Which is better? Traditional Fryer or the Bella Air Fryer?
Overall, the Bella Air Fryer is the best choice for those looking for a simple, efficient way to fry foods. The functionality and ease of use offer a great addition to your kitchen gadget collection. Using the Bella Air provides a healthier and cleaner option to traditional fryers.
My Review of the Bella Air Fryer
I love to cook. I even do it professionally. I've been working in kitchens off and on for the past three years, so even when I am not at work, I want to cook, especially fried foods.
My love for cooking grew out of watching my mother deep fry chicken on the stove when I was little. She would let me watch, but from a distance, because she knew there was a danger of oil popping out from the pan.
I loved watching her cook, but I hated the mess and the smell oil brought into the kitchen. Unfortunately for me, I work in a kitchen, so I cannot escape the lingering smell of burnt oil or the occasional oil pop from the fryer.
I have to deal with cooking with oil all day at work, so I wanted something safer, something healthier.
I am what one would call a cautious shopper. I tend to watch videos, read reviews, and speak to friends who have a particular product. Looking through customer reviews, I noticed that almost all of the reviewers shared how the Bella Air Fryer provided the same great crispy crunch as traditional fryers. I was surprised because I did not know that a product could give the same texture as a conventional fryer.
What I found most interesting about the product was the overall style and design. I take pride in the decor of my kitchen. I like people to walk in and see a clean, tidy space. I have little to no counter space, so everything I buy has to fit. The Bella Air Fryer fit perfectly in my kitchen. The modern design and dimensions added an excellent quality to the overall feel of my kitchen.
The first time I tried the air fryer, I did not think it would live up to the hype. I knew customers said it did provide crunchy, crispy, golden fried foods, but I was doubtful. I had bought products in the past that promised a lot but did not follow through.
I live on a budget so wasting money on a product that doesn’t deliver isn’t something I like to do.
I am happy to say that the Bella Air Fryer delivers everything it promises.
Not only was it easy and straightforward to get the fryer started, but the food was also crispy! I made a batch of chicken nuggets to try it out, and when they came out, they were crunchy and golden brown.
What I enjoyed most was the taste. I did not believe that the food could taste as good as foods fried in a traditional fryer, but I was very wrong. I did not realize how much oil can affect the taste of food until I used the Bella Air. The food did not feel heavy in my stomach, and I did not get sluggish after eating. Usually, after eating fried foods, I feel tired, but not with the Bella Air Fryer.
I am a messy cook, but with the Bella Air Fryer, there was little to no mess. The stainless-steel frying tray was easy to remove and clean. I just popped it in the dishwasher, and then it was good as new.
I've fried with oil for years, and now after using the Bella Air Fryer, I don't think I want to go back ever again.
The Final Word on the Bella Air 2.6 Qt. Fryer
The Bella Air Fryer does what it promises. Believe me. I no longer feel guilty about eating fried foods because I know that with the oil-less frying capability, I am eating fewer calories and less fat. Even with less fat and calories, the food still tastes delicious.
The ease of use offers you freedom from spending hours in the kitchen, wasting away. The 60-minute timer lets you know that the fryer will not overheat or cause any damage to your home. When I was doing chores around my house, I did not even have to worry about checking the Bella Air Fryer, because I knew it could handle it.
Overall, the Bella 2.6 Qt. Air Fryer is an excellent addition to any modern kitchen. The functionality, features, ease of use and price let you know that you are buying a high-quality and high-performing product.
