I used the Farberware (Kaloric) Air Fryer that I purchased at Walmart to cook chicken. The unit was placed on my counter, over 10 inches away from my window, but after using the unit noticed my window frame had melted and warped. Air was coming out of the vent at an extremely hot temperature as to burn my hand if I placed it near it. I'm concerned that this product is unsafe and could be a fire hazard as well as damaging to anything placed in the hot air's path even if it's at the safe distance it says in the manual.
