It makes great french fries and baked potatoes.
Natasha Stryker
I cooked a few different things in it...even used some of the recipes that were in the book that was supplied...EWWWWWWWWWWWW.
It is a great way to enjoy fried foods with a little more of the fried taste than an oven can provide.

The BIG BOSS OIL-LESS FRYER is a countertop oven that cooks with convection currents, infrared heat, and a halogen lamp. When I ordered it, I expected (somewhat naively) to receive an appliance that would substitute for a deep-fat fryer. Unfortunately, although the "fryer" will cook French fries and breaded onion rings, the fries and rings don't come out tasting like traditional deep-fat-fried foods. But your house will still smell like you've been frying!

This appliance cooks large food items pretty well, which is its one good feature. However, for me it has a lot of negative features (which are described in more detail at the end of this review). Chiefly, the fryer (1) is huge, (2) uses about the same amount of electricity as my newish oven, (3) doesn't cook any faster than my oven, (4) handles only small batches of vegetables and fries, (5) uses racks and trays that foods stick to, (6) undercooks food when the recipes are followed, and (7) doesn't always cook food all the way through (even when the food is arranged in a single layer). Add to that, the fryer glows so brightly that at first it made me very uncomfortable, as a psychological thing, to stand anywhere close to it in my small kitchen. The halogen light cycles on an off during cooking, but not when cooking times are very short.

I tested the fryer by cooking French fries, onion rings, crescent roll cinnamon buns, and a 15 lb. turkey (15.31 lbs., to be exact), always following the directions in the included recipe book. FRENCH FRIES: The capacity of the tall rack and mesh tray is 1-1/2 potatoes cut into quarter-inch strips and arranged in a single layer; the batch takes 12 minutes to cook. When I fudged the single layer, the fries didn't cook through.

I've been using the Oil-less fryer for a few months now, and it is hands-down my favorite kitchen appliance. I'm on a fairly restricted nutrition plan and eat TONS of boneless skinless chicken breasts. Broiling or baking turns chicken breasts into nasty little hockey pucks very quickly, and I could never quite figure out how to fully cook the chicken without drying it out. The Oil-less fryer makes it easy: I pop the chicken in, set the timer for 15-20 minutes, and get chicken that (really is) crispy and browned on the outside and moist on the inside. It's awesome. I've only been able to achieve comparable texture with my steamer, but the steamer takes much longer and doesn't cook the chicken as thoroughly. I've also "fried" potatoes and sweet potatoes with very good results.

As you can tell, I'm a huge fan of this oven, and I hope it keeps working for a long time! Some brief caveats, though:

As other reviews have said, it's not very big. You probably won't be able to cook for more than 2 people at once.
The mesh basket is difficult to clean by hand (as recommended by the manual). I've been tossing it in the dishwasher with good results.
Contrary to its claims, it does emit a bit of heat... but it's a fraction of the heat emitted by my steamer.

The problem with my free standing kitchen stove's electric oven is that its broiler isn't worth a tinker's damn.

Before we got our Big Boss, the only way my spouse and I could get a decently grilled steak, (we like ours medium rare), was to go out to a restaurant. Even then, the results were uneven. What we paid in some of those places would easily have covered most of our weekly grocery bill and the quality, more often than not, left something to be desired. Some of those steaks were actually tough enough to resole a pair of shoes and the cooking wasn't better than what we weren't enjoying at home.

In my humble opinion, a major part of the problem with most of the negative opinions of the Big Boss expressed here are that the purchaser's expectations were unrealistic. With that said, I'll admit that at least some of the blame for their expections lies with the manufacturer/marketer. Because, no matter what they claim, the Big Boss is not an adequate subsitute for either a deep fryer or a regular baking oven. And, as it name implies, it is big and cumbersome to handle.

In other words, the Big Boss, beginning, middle and end, is a GRILL (!!!), and, in my opinion, an excellent one at that.

As I have learned to do, in my 75 years as a consumer, is to carefully study and plan when it comes to this kind of purchase. First of all, we had to decide exactly what we wanted as well as why, and it's amazing how many people don't do that. We are a two person household which, for medical reasons, is restricted to a low-fat, low sodium diet.

What we wanted was to be able to properly grill meat and fish at home with as little muss and fuss as possible, period.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've never had such a hard time deciding whether I like a product or not. I've put off reviewing this item, because my opinion is wishy-washy and I can't decide how many stars to give it.

My biggest question about this fryer is, who is the real target market for this? Is it lazy cooks? Is it health nuts? Or maybe it's potheads who want to stand around watching their munchies cook. I'm just not sure. So instead of focusing on my opinion, I'll share my experience.

I had a rare Friday evening to myself where my wife was out with her girlfriends and my kids were at a pizza party. In an uncharacteristically boring move, I decided to put this thing through its paces without having anyone to look over my shoulder--to either succeed or fail, but without an audience.

Since I had some time on my hands, I stopped by the market and picked up a few potatoes, some onions, a whole fryer chicken, and a couple pounds of catfish pieces.

Before the kids left for their party, I sliced up some potatoes and made fries. They were under cooked. They could have used another 3-4 minutes. The taste was weird. I expected them to kind of taste like under cooked oily cold fries that you get from some takeout joints. But instead they were like little baked potato strips. I love baked potatoes, but I need something on them. Otherwise they're too dry. These were bone dry. But somehow they managed to get eaten!

Then I wanted to redeem myself with the kids, so I looked at the directions for fried chicken. I wanted to see if I could adapt this for the catfish.

DISCLAIMER: Except for eggs and tortilla shells, I've never fried anything in my life. My wife makes outstanding fried chicken, so there's no reason for me to foray into this region.
