          I had originally purchased the 3.7 qt GoWISE air fryer, which works great, but found it a bit small for some things I wanted to cook. This one fits the bill, although we still use the 3.7 qt for smaller quantities and to air fry 2 different things at the same time. I do like the audible timer you can set for 5, 10 or 15 minutes to remind you to stir up what you're cooking. Very handy!
          It does take up a bit of counter space, but we can live with that. It puts out very little heat into the kitchen, which is great!

          I highly recommend either the 3.7 qt or the 5.8 qt version, depending on how many you're cooking for and how large of items you plan on cooking.

          I had never heard of an air fryer till the end of November when I saw an article titled "I'll never apologize for my air fryer" That peaked my interest and I started reading reviews. Two of the top rated were the Phillips and the GoWise USA that Home Depot carries.
          I bought the GoWISE 3.7 qt machine one week later with free home delivery, which only took about 3 days.and we have been loving it.
          I've cooked everything from tenderloin steaks, french fries, tater tots, onion rings, hot wings, baked potato, breaded pork tenderloin sandwich and chicken breasts. All with reasonably good success!

          One thing I've noticed is most things cook faster than the preset times, but that's easy to adjust and things turn out much as they're supposed to.
          It turned out the only drawback was the size and I ended up ordering the 5.8 qt GoWisem in which I've cooked a 5 lb chicken with great results! We are keeping both just for the convenience of cooking 2 different items at the same time.

          I've done a 5.2 lb chicken in it and it was delicious! The grease accumulated in the lower catch tray which I'd lined with foil. Very easy cleanup!

          Answer: 
          It does have a bit of an industrial odor when you first fire it up, but the manufacturer recomends you run it on high for 15 minutes or so to burn that off. After that, no more odors.
