Wife asked me what I thought about them and I had to admit I know nothing. So who has one and what do you like about it.
thanks

Hated it. Too small to feed 4.

Then the lightbulb camo on and I realized our congestion oven is the
same thing. But has 3 big racks.



Hint. Spray a little olive oil on stuff first.
It will brown and crisp better. No fat, no brown and crisp.
You can buy it in aerosol cans like PAM.

As do we. Simple to use, good results. The kids even feel comfortable using it without supervision. I get more questions on how long to microwave something from them than how to use the air fryer.

I don't like it. Then again, I don't mind eating fat, and I cook a fair amount.

The little crockpot-looking ones are too small for more than 2 people.

We have a toaster oven that does air-fry. They are essentially just a convection oven. They do work well when one pays attention to what they're doing.

Like them a lot. Of course, it is just my wife and I at home. Ours probably isn't big enough to cook for a large family. But to heat up small portions they do it faster and better than a conventional oven.


Most people don't really want the truth.

They just want constant reassurance that what they believe is the truth.

We use ours all the time, especially in the winter ... we love it. Very versatile from chicken to steaks to hamburgers to cheese sticks to potatoes ... endless possibilities. Veggies, hard crust breads. Ours even dehydrates.

Use ours frequently. Basically a turbo oven. Cooks in half the time, but it is small. I use it to reheat stuff and cook fries and such.

Wife just got one a couple months ago. She doesn't use it for anything other than making toast. Our toaster used to perform that function just fine, but one of her friends has an air fryer so she decided we need one too for some reason.

If you're looking for a way to have "fried" food once in a while without all the grease and fat, I guess it's OK.

Dump some frozen Tater tots in the basket and let it do its' thing. Meh. They are OK I guess.

You'd have to have a pretty big one if you wanted to make anything for more than two people.

The countertop models are OK but as many state their throughput is just meh. There are ovens that have airfryer mode... that's what I would get if I could afford one.
Results-wise they are great.

Don’t cook chili in an air fryer.

Love them and used to use mine all the time. My 3rd one just crapped last week.

I'm waiting for the sales next week to decide what to get next as the one I have isn't made anymore. Gonna look real hard at a Ninja Foodi if I can find one for a good price.

I use one almost every day. I use the microwave to quickly thaw frozen stuff then finish it off in the air fryer. I think it's great.

Wife uses ours several times a week and even more in the summer. We'd get another if this one died

I use mine to cook chicken legs and thighs. I've cooked turkey breast in it too. Works faster than the stove oven. Makes a good aroma in the kitchen.

This

chicken wings

shrimp

Fries

Breaded chicken breasts/tenders

Re heated baby back ribs/tators

cinnamin rolls

Bigger isn't always better

They will not cook enough to people to feed 4

They do cook very well

$65-75 will be ya a small one to mess with

We had to purchase another Stove. So we purchased one with the Air Fryer built into it
My girl has tried Air Frying stuff several times
She doesn't care for it.

Pretty much a mini convention oven. We have one. Used to use it a lot. Not as much these days though
