Default Air-Frying

Anybody else using a air-fryer? I bought one during the Black Friday sales and have used it a couple of times since. Everything we have made in it comes out tasting surprisingly great. If you are using one what are your favorite things to make in it?

I haven’t used ours in years (Tefal Actifry) but it was quite useful. Most things breaded or battered would come out crispy, and sausages seemed to cook extremely quickly in it.

We use ours for all kinds of root vegetables (potatoes, turnips, rutabagas, parsnips), sausages, and chicken, all with excellent results.

I've been thinking about purchasing a air fryer. My sister owns one and most of the food I tried was pretty good. She air fried whole chicken pieces and they were actually super crispy with a good crunch. The fries were good but not great, but still better than the made in the oven kind.
Frozen chicken nuggets turned out excellent, and frozen spring rolls were also very good and crispy. It helps brushing or spraying the food with oil before air frying them.

I've been using mine quite frequently and have mostly been real pleased with the results. I've made calzones that came out really good, tempura chicken and shrimp (tasted fine but next time I need to make the mixture thicker. It works really great for reheating egg rolls and I also like to cook frozen burritos in the microwave and then crispy them up with a couple of minutes in the airfryer.

I've heard and or read that it's good to add a little bit of oil to what you are going to air fry.

An air fryer is worth it just for how well it does potatoes. Chop 'em up, toss them in some seasonings, then throw them in the air fryer and they're great. They get a little crispy, more than in an oven, but not quite as crispy as if you fried them in oil, but it's worth it for how much easier it is to clean up after and healthier than oil frying.

The pre-packaged fries and tater tots work great in there too. You can tell most already have a slight bit of oil on them, so they get even crispier, but still less oil than if you fried them in a pan.

We have one. I love the fish and fries, and choco chip oatmeal cookies using it.

Having had my air-fryer for nearly a year now I've got to say I'm really surprised how often we use it and how well it cooks virtually everything we have put in there. Really about the only thing I haven't been able to do has been tempura, I thought I could make the batter thicker but no matter how thick I made it the fan still blows most of the batter off. But really everything else comes out fantastic.

Finally bought my own airfryer. It's addictive because it is kind of fun doing meals in them.
I made a grilled cheese sandwich and it came out fantastic. I also did German style burgers (more like patty shaped meat loaf) and again, just great. I think it will make my oven obsolete heh. Highly recommended.
