The Bella Air Fryer is so new it has earned very little consumer feedback. This brief review covers the basics and is offered in response to questions received from our website visitors.
This is a 1,500 Watt electric air fryer with a 2.5 liter cooking capacity. It has manual controls, a temperature range of 175° to 400° F, and a dishwasher safe cooking basket. This model is not from a well-known manufacturer*, but it sells for under $80 and has a good warranty** on the unit.
* Bella is a registered trademark of Sensio Inc., located in Montréal, Canada. Other Sensio brands include Crux and Brim.
* Warranty – 2 years limited warranty on unit, 90 days limited warranty on non-mechanical parts. For complete details click here to go to product page on Amazon, scroll down to Product Information, and click the link under Warranty & Support.

Watch this short video (about a minute) for a brief explanation of how the Bella Air Fryer works, and you can also get a good look at the appliance interior and cooking basket.
Air fryers are not complicated machines. This Bella has manual controls, but otherwise it includes all the standard features of the basic models in the same price range.(Back to Top)

Like all air fryers, the Bella occupies a fairly large chunk of space on your counter top. This one isn’t terribly heavy, but still, size and shape make it a bit awkward to move in and out of cabinets.
There are no accessories made specifically for the Bella brand, but you may have other options. For example, check out this set of Hiware Air fryer Accessories on Amazon. It’s good quality and very inexpensive. You will need to measure your Bella cooking basket before you buy to be sure these pans will fit inside.
The instruction manual for the Bella Air Fryer includes only standard operating & care information and a very limited number of recipes. You can view it online at https://bellahousewares.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/14538_BELLA_2_5L_Air_Fryer_Belks_IM_R7_HR.pdf.(Back to Top)
As mentioned in the introduction above, to date there is not much consumer feedback. The Bella Air Fryer simply hasn’t been on the market long enough to have established any track record on longevity or reliability. As for performance, so far 88% of customers rate it with 4 or 5 stars.
There are a few reports of these air fryers being dead on arrival, but not enough to be cause for concern. Unfortunately that can happen even with the best and most expensive brands.
A number of others reported an odor that does not go away after use of the appliance. One owner suggested that a thorough washing before use, as instructed in the owner’s manual, will solve this problem. If not then this should certainly be just cause for returning the unit.
Otherwise the only complaints to date about this unit are from people who are unhappy with the taste of the food. There is no guarantee you will love air fried food, but there’s a very good chance that your first dishes won’t turn out all that great. If you really want an air fryer, then spend a few more bucks and get a good air fryer cookbook. It will make all the difference! In addition to recipes you’ll learn tips and tricks that help you get the most from your air fryer. To find a resource see our Air Fryer Cookbook Guide.(Back to Top)

Bella Air Fryer Review: Summary
The Bella Air Fryer is a very reasonably price model with standard features designed to suit the needs of most average users. Only time will tell whether it holds up well over the long run, but the company seems confident, as evidenced by the lengthy warranty. This could be a very good choice for those who are curious about air frying but aren’t interested in investing a lot of money just yet.
