Product Info

Versatile and functional, this Airfryer features VersaZone technology that allows you to either cook in one extra-large 8.5L basket or divide into two smaller 4.2L baskets, giving you unmatched flexibility in your cooking. Use the large basket for family meals or simply add the divider and switch to dual baskets with separate time and temperature settings, so you can either airfry two whole chickens at once or grill chops in one zone while roasting veggies in the other. Match cooking settings between drawers and ensure the finish time between the two zones is simultaneous with the smart SyncCook and SyncFinish functions. Or, if you only want to cook a small portion then simply use just one zone to cook in. Enjoy crispy and tender results every time!

  • Instant Vortex Plus 8-In-1 Versazone Airfryer
  • VersaZone technology to quickly switch from one extra-large cooking basket to two independently controlled cooking zones
  • 8-in-1: Airfry, Roast, Grill, Bake, Reheat, Dehydrate, SyncCook & SyncFinish
  • You can fit two large chickens (1.6kg each) plus vegetables or potatoes in the single drawer space (without the divider) 
  • You can fit one large chicken (1.6kg) per drawer with the divider, without the added potatoes/vegetables
  • The latest EvenCrisp air fryer technology delivers crispy and tender results using 95% less oil
  • SyncCook feature allows you to automatically cook using the same settings in both zones
  • While the SyncFinish feature automatically starts the different cooking programs at different times, so the zones finish together
  • Updated design for lower noise levels
  • Little to no preheating, from frozen to golden in minutes
  • Insulated cooking chamber for a quieter kitchen
  • Non-stick cooking drawer and dishwasher-safe cooking tray/divider make clean up easy
  • A tilted touchscreen with an intuitive message bar provides step-by-step instructions and a cooking progress indicator for each drawer
  • Customised cooking programmes for quick one-touch meals
  • Built-in safety features, including overheating protection

The ‘litre volume’ information provided by many airfryer manufacturers is not a fair reflection of cooking capacity, as this accounts for the inside space without the basket or drawer. What matters more is the cooking area at the bottom of the basket. To get the best results, you should cook items in a single layer, so focus on the base, not just the height or volume.

The Vortex Versazone model basket can easily hold two roast chickens along with their side dishes. When used as a single drawer, it measures 320mm x 240mm, and when used as two separate drawers, each one is 160mm x 240mm in size.

I have used the airfryer a number of times in the first week and I love it. The drawer is a good size, I haven't yet used the feature of cooking 2 different things on different sides but I think this will be really useful as well.

The drawer is quite bulky for cleaning (it doesn't really fit in the sink) but the non-stick coating makes it really easy to clean so I am not finding Read more

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Really pleased with this air fryer. Arrived on time and have used it every day since. The adaptability of being able to use the whole 8.5L tray or split it into two is not just a gimmick and gives great results.

Looks good and cleans very easily. Can be thought of as expensive against others on the market but the quality and size far out way this.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
