Kmart Shopper Issues Warning To Anyone Who Has An Air Fryer


Kmart Shopper Issues Warning To Anyone Who Has An Air Fryer

People who have air fryers claim they are gifts from the heavens.

You can seemingly cook anything in these bad boys from crispy pork bellies to full on cakes, and everything in between.

However, they do have a feature that can cause nightmares for people unaware how they work.

One shopper who purchased an air fryer from Kmart was shocked to discover their kitchen bench had cracked right where their air fryer was placed.


Writing on the Kmart Hacks & Decor group, Serene said: "Just an FYI and warning! Bought the big air fryer and have been loving it...till I noticed a big crack in my bench top.

"I didn't realise the heat the air fryer made underneath and has now cracked my stone bench top!"

People were shocked to realise this could happen to their device, while others warned Serene and all users to always put something underneath the device.


To be fair, if you read the instruction manual from Kmart it says that you should only place your air fryer on a 'stable, horizontal, flat and heat resistant' surface.

A Kmart spokesperson has issued a statement saying everyone should be wary about where they place their machine.

"At Kmart, we're committed to designing and creating great quality products for our customers; and we're proud to offer families a wide range of cooking appliances," the spokesperson said.

"Air Fryers are one of our most popular appliance categories; with a 5-star customer rating and dedicated fan page on Facebook with over 398,000 members.


"When it comes to electrical appliances, we recommend customers familiarise themselves with the safety precautions outlined in our User Manuals.

"This will ensure products are used correctly. Placing air fryers on dry, level, stable, and heat-resistant surfaces (away from overhead cabinets or presses, which may be damaged by steam) is recommended."
