    So I bought an Instant Vortex 6 qt air fryer. Used off Amazon.ca for $125. Although it was classified as "acceptable" if the box had ever been opened the unit itself had not.

    Made fries in 11 minutes total (2 min preheat, 9 min cook). Usually take 22 min w/o the preheat. No need to put things in a single layer. I'm sold.

    Only downside: The thing's loud. Needs to use Noctua fans.

    I hung my head in shame and bought one of these for MrsMightyVaj.

    It's everything wonderful that all the proponents have been saying. She uses it constantly. We threw the toaster out. It's amazing and I don't know why. This was a Christmas present and I think you could also call it a blowjob machine.

    My hate went away very quickly.

    Nice oven. Seems a little small.

    After using this, I don't understand how those other ones work when they're all shaped like insta-pots?!!

    I was happy I didn't have to pay whatever >$300 nonsense for this one. I think it went on for $200 and then that magic Triangle WE credit card ejaculated another $60 back at me for some strange reason.

    I also don't understand the circular ones. But I'm not a smart man.

    Recipe? They do look delish, and I have started to get tired of firing up the deep fryer for wings.

    Made burgers in them. Worked great.

    Also did a RCSS sirloin steak. Worked well.

    Nice thing is the mess is contained.

    Put wings on a baking sheet with parchment paper, dust with a combo of Salt, Pepper, Sugar (key), chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder. Or whatever you want to dust them with. I find wings need the sugar though so seriously consider that. If you like heat toss some cayenne in there.

    Granulated works fine or you can grind the spices further in the vitamix to make a super fine dust. I use granulated this time.

    In a ~450 degree oven for 20 minutes on convect, flip then another 10-20 until they are done ( pretty wide doneness window on these ). I approximate the 450, you are starting to get a bit close to spice burning temps on these so just keep an eye on things. My parents oven was a bit hotter than I was used to which let to a hair of burning.

    I find it’s better if you season the wings and air chill for several hours in the fridge prior to get a bit of a dry brine which helps you get crispy skin.

    Honestly dead easy and they are always good. If you want to use a grill instead then same wings go on grill on indirect heat for around half an hour ( you want to see fat rendering) the. Sear off on hot side of grill.

    Both methods work gangbustasters but the oven is less work. I never deep fry wings.

    My argument against wire racks is the skin on wings tends to stick to them and ruins final presentation.

    True, but saves flipping.

    My Instant Vortex is remarkable in how evenly brown it makes everything even without flipping.

    When I bought my house in June, I also bought new appliances. I have a range that has an air fryer built in, with nothing telling me how long yo air fry anything.

    Super sad and following Google instructions on external air fryers don't add up to the same thing as my range.

    Le disappoint

    Many foods are adding air fryer cooking instructions onto their packaging now that it's becoming more prevalent.

    This doesn't help, but the spectrum of appliance identities goes something like this.
    Oven -> Convection oven -> Oven with air-fry setting -> Dedicated air-fryer appliance

    You can do most of the same things with each of those, but time and technique will vary.

    Got the $600 Panasonic microwave / air fryer.
    Very much thumbs down on the non-microwave functions.

    The only acceptable one is the combo microwave/broiler function for things like melting cheese on pasta but it never gets very brown before the microwave part is done.
    Also the fan runs for fucking ever after any use.
