A concerned shopper has issued an urgent warning about Kmart’s popular air fryer after the device cracked her kitchen benchtop.

Kmart shopper Serene posted the shocking image online showing a long crack in her dark stone benchtop.

The shopper posted the damage to the Kmart Hacks and Decor group on Monday (pictured)

Serene claims the heat emanating from the bottom of the 7.5 litre air fryer had caused the irreversible damage on her family’s stone benchtop. 

The discovery of the damage was even more devastating for Serene, as she had just purchased her new home. 

‘Yeah I am p***ed as I only bought the place three months ago. My perfect kitchen,’ she said.  

Other Kmart fans were quick to comment on the photo, with many shocked at the damage.

Kmart has been contacted for comment regarding the damage related to their popular air fryer 

‘I’m so sorry that has happened to you. It’s very thoughtful of you to warn others,’ one said.

‘Noooo! How terrible,’ another said.

Another customer claimed that the same 7.5 liter air fryer caused the same damage on her own stone kitchen benchtop. 

Some suggested placing the air fryer on top of a bread board or tile for future protection.

‘It says in the instructions to put it (the air fryer) on something,’ one said.

‘You should always out the air fryer on a board. I am on a few air fryer sites and this does happen to stone bench tops. Extreme heat will crack them,’ another added.

In the product instruction manual, Kmart advises that the appliance should only be used on a ‘stable, horizontal, flat and heat resistant’ surface, and ‘placing the air fryer on an insulated heat pad is recommended.’

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Kmart for comment.
