GoWISE USA GW22621 – at a glance
The device utilizes a new and improved features that include touch screen technology, which gives you an option to select 1 (out of 7) built-in smart programs: Meat, Chips, Chicken, Shrimp, Steak, and Fish or manually program a time you want your dish to be fried yourself. Safety play a big role in this new model that is equipped with a button guard, in order to prevent accidental detachment of the cooking basket.
Adjustable temperature control, ranging from 175°F – 400°F, allows the preparation of a variety of dishes, from juicy wings to crispy fries, all while using little to no oil at all. The 30 minute timer that has an automatic standby feature means that this air fryer will automatically switch into standby mode, as soon as the cooking time is done.
That being said, the fact that it’s one of the rare fryers that doesn’t have a 60 minute timer is the one mark that catches the consumers attention in a not-so-good way. This machine is ETL Certified, and it comes with a detachable basket, making sure you’re able to transfer your cooked goods from the fryer to the serving dish.

GoWISE USA GW22621 Review
Cooking basket capacity
Safety & build quality
This is definitely a device worthy of your attention if you're looking for the best air fryer right now. We are looking at a company that managed to attain its share of the market through clever innovation and properly combining top-quality components with affordable prices. Check this fella out, it just might be your perfect fit!
Cooking basket capacity: 4
The cooking basket capacity of 3.7 qt makes sure you have enough room in your cooker to prepare healthy meals for the whole family, in at most two batches. The nifty basket is also detachable, which means that cleaning is easy and stress-free. The actual detachment of the basket can prove to be a bit tricky.
After I’ve done it a few times, I noticed that you have to do the following steps to ensure the basket slid out right: You have to hold the handle, while at the same time you push in the button and applying pressure to the bottom of the handle, in order to lift the far part of the basket up, so it would separate from the drip base with ease. Another thing to look out for is when you are inserting the cooking basket back to the fryer, make sure it slid in just right, which is distinguishable by a rather quiet “click” sound – that’s the button guard, which prevents the basket from an accidental detachment.
Temperature control: 4
You can set the temperature in any range, from 175 – 400 Degree Fahrenheit (80 – 205 Degree Celsius), which is more than enough of versatility to make virtually any dish out there. The timer has a built-in shutdown system, making sure your food won’t get burned, but it’s limited to just 30 seconds, which can prove tricky, especially if you’re trying to slow roast a dish. That being said, if you don’t mind being near the fryer after that 30 minute mark, then this is not that big of an issue.
As this is the latest 4th generation air fryer, it was kind of expected for it to be quite versatile and do a bit more than just fry different food. GoWISE made sure to consider that as well, so this kitchen appliance has 7 built-in programs for different types of food, including Chicken, Chips, Meat, Steak, Fish and Shrimp or, if you want to set the cooking time and temperature yourself – manual program.
In addition to the abovementioned, you get a complimentary recipe booklet with some of the most delicious dishes I’ve seen in a while.
Safety & build quality: 4
Safety is one of the primary concerns when using an air fryer, which is exactly why GoWISE made sure to cover every base with this product. Some of their older models were known to have the handle heat up a bit, especially if the fryer is being used for more than 30 minutes, which is the limit the timer has. Another issue those older models had was that the paint slowly starts peeling off after a while. Seeing how this affected the customer opinions, the manufacturer made sure not to make the same mistake twice, and they’ve added a few security measures, like the button guard, which serves to prevent accidental detachment of the basket.
Additional perks: 4
While this air fryer doesn’t bring anything exactly new, it made sure to enhance all the existing perks, so the main perk of it is – quality. With the appearance of the 4th generation air frying technology, it was easy to digitalize the screen of the air fryer, which also does wonders for its design as now it looks way more modern than the older models. Add 7 built-in programs for cooking different types of food and a recipe cookbook to go with that, and you’ve got the GoWISE USA GW22621.
