Reviewing the NuWave Gourmet Accessory Kit

NuWave Air Fryer Accessories
With my recent purchase of the NuWave Brio air fryer I also purchased the NuWave Gourmet Accessory Kit. At first I thought the little pan and cooking rack were over-priced and I felt silly for spending that extra money. But after using them for nearly every healthy meal - multiple times a day - I consider them invaluable.

If you aren't at all familiar with the NuWave Brio air fryer, you can read my review here. The Gourmet Accessory Kit is sold separately here

NuWave Gourmet Accessory Kit

Because I am typically cooking only for myself I purchased the Gourmet Accessory Kit.  It sounds much more fancy than it is. It is really just a 6" x 6" square pan (2 Qt) with a handle and a 6" x 6" cooking rack.  Rather than cook my foods in the pan included with the machine or on it's existing rack, I use the little pan the most often. 

Easy Clean Up: The pan has been keeping mess to a minimum. The juices and splatter stay in the accessory pan. It is non-stick so it is easy to lift out and wash off. 

Portion Control: The Gourmet Accessory Kit also helps with portion control - without leaving me feeling deprived. The pan holds just a small amount. I cook that small amount and after a bit, if I'm still hungry, I can quickly cook a bit more in the Brio air fryer. However, I haven't felt like I needed that second portion very often.

Cooking Items Separately: I can also cook two different items at the same time. I place one item in the pan - sitting on the original rack in the machine - and cook veggies on the original rack next to it. I have not yet cooked a meal large enough to have to use the Accessory rack in addition to the original rack. But it's good to know that I will have that extra space if I need it.  

Weight Loss: After loosely following the eating habits recommended by the Embry family in Living Proof and using the NuWave Brio air fryer, I have lost 4 lbs in approximately 2 weeks. That doesn't sound like much, but I am thrilled with that much loss after just changing what I eat.

  1. 4 pounds of weight loss in 2 weeks sounds terrific! 1 to 2 pounds a week is considered by most doctors to be a healthy weight rate. And losing weight while eating well and not feeling deprived means this way of eating will be much easier for you to sustain over time. Congratulations! It sounds as though you’re getting more than your money’s worth from your air fryer and accessories set. I love the idea of containing the food and splatter in the accessory pan for easier cleanup. Great review!

  2. Losing two pounds of weight per week is terrific. I would be thrilled if I consistently lost that amount of weight (since I have some pounds to lose). Glad you are enjoying eating healthy with your complete NuWave set. Having the right tools for living healthy makes all the difference.

  3. You seem to have found the perfect kitchen accessory, not only for healthy eating, but for portion-control resulting in weight loss. Well done. My neighbor just this week was telling me about purchasing an air fryer and how much she was enjoying it. She says she's not a big fan of cooking per se and that her new air fryer is making it easy for her to have quick and delicious meals.

  4. This sounds like the perfect accessory set for the NuWave Brio airfryer! Losing 4lbs in 2 weeks is definitely something to get excited about and is an additional recommendation for buying the airfryer. I normally cook for 2 or 3 at a time, but sometimes one of us wants something different from the other two. I can see how the smaller pan would be serviceable even in my kitchen.

  5. You've certainly peeked my interest in an air fryer with your previous review. Every time I read a product review on here, I want the darn thing lol! Congrats on the weight loss. Food is medicine isn't it :)

  6. Okay Dawn Rae you have my attention. Losing 4 pounds in two weeks is amazing and it sounds like you really are getting a lot of benefits from this Air Fryer and accessories. I think this will go on my wish list and someone can surprise me....thanks!
