It is the biggest of all the most known models you can find out there. At 16 quarts, it offers the largest capacity, which is quite interesting and could be the competitive advantage it has over the competition.

How to use the BIG BOSS oil-less fryer
Although it’s believed that using the BIG BOSS 1300-Watt Oil-Less Fryer is damn easy but my sincere advice to you is that you give few minutes of your time to read the manual and understand the various cooking instructions in the recipe book before starting to use it. I recommend you get the full idea from their manual and read it for better understanding on how to use this machine.
For example, to use the Big Boss for frying your chicken, all you need to do, according to the Big Boss manufacturer, is to dip the chicken (after cutting into pieces) in your favorite breading and then place it in the bowl which already incorporates the tray. After that set the timer and the adjustable temperature to about 400 degrees for 25 minutes and you’re done. And there will be no need whatsoever for any pre-heating.
As for your French fries, the Big Boss manufacturer claims you can cook them with a setting of 450 degrees in 15 minutes. And most interestingly is the claim as to how fast (three times faster) you can have all your cooking and the various things you can use the machine for e.g. for making fish sticks, popcorn shrimp, steak, hot wings, kabobs, and chicken strips.
How BIG BOSS oil-less fryer works
The Big Boss Oil-Less Fryer is a cooking machine made of a huge 16-quart glass bowl and a heating unit, all attached to it. According to the description by the maker, it combines three cooking power namely, halogen light, convection, and infrared heat which help you to deep fry foods.
I guess you wonder how this machine works with little or no oil while cooking your favorite fried foods. Understanding this is quite simple once you read the manual and follow the cooking instructions.
Another exciting thing about how this machine works are the functions of the triple cooking power such as halogen, convection and infrared heat incorporated into it. The manufacturer claims that though your food gets done faster using the machine, the process is done without losing any flavor or moisture in your foods. For example, the Oil-Less Fryer’s halogen light helps make your food crispy on the outside, while the convection element functions as a means of circulating heat evenly around the food, and the infrared technology ensure perfect cooking by cooking from the inside-out and, this again, keeps your foods moist and delicious – what you will certainly love most. To crown it all up, they advertise Big Boss Oil-Less Fryer as being economical in terms of energy consumption.

- The pre-Programmed timer function is hard to maneuver. Any mistake made by setting the timer for too many minutes can’t be undone or reduce the timing. And if you try to do, you may end up breaking the timer. The only solution to this (a great flaw, indeed) is to exercise patience and allow the counter to get down to the correct time (you intend to set it to before making the mistake) and then put in your food. This, I found personally annoying!
