Secura is a renowned name for kitchen appliances such as toaster, air fryer, coffeemaker, and so on. They also produce kitchen gadgets such as knife sharpener, drawer organizer, and other items. Although they do not have so many models, air fryers from Secura are of good quality and commended by so many people. In this article, I am going to review Secura 4-liter/4.2-quart air fryer TXG-DS15. I will discuss the important features such as dimension, weight, temperature, food basket property, and so on. I think it will help you make a better decision.
Specifications – Secura 4-Liter Air Fryer
|Model||Secura Air Fryer TXG-DS15|
|Dimension (inches)||15 x 13 x 14|

Features – Secura Air Fryer TXG-DS15
Basket capacity – The size of the food basket of Secura TXG-DS15 air fryer is 4.2-quart or 4 liters. A basket of this size is good enough for preparing food for 3 to 4 persons in a single batch. However, if you need to cook more, then cook in multiple batches. This popular air fryer will be suitable for small to medium size families.
Weight and dimension – Secura TXG-DS15 is bulkier than other comparable models. The dimension of this unit is 15 x 13 x 14 inches. If we compare it with some other popular models in the market, then we get the below table.
|Secura Air Fryer TXG-DS15||4.2 qt||15 x 13 x 14|
|Avalon Bay Air Fryer 100B||3.7 qt||13.5 x 11 x 12.75|
|GoWISE USA GW22639||3.7 qt||13 x 10 x 12|
|Willsence Air Fryer 3.7 QT||3.7 qt||14.6 x 12.3 x 12.2|
From the table above, it is evident that Secura is a bit bigger. Although I do not think it will be a big deal. The overall dimension is still suitable for a smaller countertop. The weight of this unit is about 10 lbs. It is just average compared to the competitors. Considering the weight and dimension, Secura 4.2 qt air fryer is suitable for in-house mobility, but not suitable for outdoors.
Temperature range – Secura 4.2 qt air fryer has an average working temperature. It cooks between 180°F to 395°F. All other air fryers in the similar range have equivalent range. This temperature will allow you to cook anything in the air frying mode. Other than this, you can grill, bake, and roast your favorite foods.
Control Panel – Secura 4.2 qt air fryer has a manual control panel with two different control knobs. With the timing controller, you can set the timer up to 60 minutes. Although there are no preset cooking modes, there are 6 different visual guidance near the control knobs that will help you set the parameter correctly. Overall, the control panel of Secura air fryer is easy to understand but I would love more if it had a digital display.
Basket property – The basket of this air fryer is non-stick. Therefore, you do not need to spray cooking oil to prevent the foods from sticking to the wall of the pan. It is easy to clean but I’m not sure whether it is dishwasher safe. Better you wash it with mild cleaning liquids. To maximize the space of the food pan, you will get BBQ rack and skewers as free accessories.
Additional feature – Secura 4.2 qt air fryer uses rapid hot air circulation to prepare all the delicious dishes. Because of the rapid hot air circulation, it mimics the frying of drenching oil without needing a single drop it. Therefore, you get a crispy output whatever you cook with it such as French fries, steak, bread, chicken, and so on.
Pros and Cons
What I liked about this Secura air fryer
- The wattage of Secura 4.2 qt air fryer (1500W) is higher than the competitors. Usually, air fryers of the similar range wattage from 1300W to 1400W. Therefore, it will generate heat faster and cook faster.
- You will get a substantial number of free accessories with it such as skewer, racks and so on that will save you some money.
- Auto shut off function of this unit will shut the air fryer automatically when the cooking is done. Therefore, it will save the food from overcooking.
- You can set the timer up to 60 minutes where ordinary air fryers go up to 30 minutes only.
- The squire shaped food basket of this unit holds more food than that of a regular circular food basket.
Cons but not a dealbreaker
If you are looking for an air fryer for a large family then this Secura air fryer will be a little tight. Although you always have options to cook in batches. The price of this unit may seem a little higher. Considering the positive reviews from the users, I think the price is justified. It does not have a digital display that I also did not like. You may read our article on similar air fryers that cost below 100 dollars.
What it is good for
This product is good for a kitchen of the family consisting of a maximum of 4 persons. However, if you don’t mind cooking in multiple batches, then you may choose it for a larger family as well. You can cook basic air fryer recipes with it such as grilling, baking, and roasting. Do not expect advanced functions such as dehydrating, broiling, and so on.
What more you want from an air fryer at this price range? If you overcome the drawbacks, then you should spend a lot of money. Philips air fryer can be a perfect example of a premium air fryer. But I think everybody will not afford it. That’s all about Secura 4.2-quart air fryer. If you find this review useful, you can share it with others.
