More than 300,000 PowerXL DUAF-10 and DUAF-005 Vortex Dual-Basket Air Fryers because the plastic U-Channel connector used to optionally combine the two food baskets inside of the air fryers can break during use, posing a burn hazard.
The firm has received 41 reports of the product breaking during use, including three reports of burns.

The recalled air fryers were sold in black or cinnamon colors. The 10-quart DUAF-10 model is about 17 inches long by 16 inches wide by 12 1/2 inches tall, and weighs about 14 1/2 pounds.
