    There may be some overlap, but the "good" air fryers move far more air than a standard convection oven.

    "air frying" happens at >400F with a shitload of air movement.

    So it's a great convection oven.

    Air fryer wins again, only thing that can reheat salt and pepper squid properly. I used to avoid ordering that because it was gross as leftovers, but now I'm getting it on the regular for family take-out.

    We love our fryer. My wife said she wanted to get one, and I'm like... why the hell do we want another big appliance to sit with the instapot...

    But the results truly are nice. Super quick, far less energy used than an oven. Our oven has split-cavity and convection which we use all the time, but it doesn't compare.
    Can get an instant pot air fryer lid. Reduce some space.

    They are amazing for reheating. There are foods I simply won't eat again unless it's popped in the air fryer to make it crispy again.

    Too lazy to read so hopefully you'll help me.

    I friggin' love Latkes (aka potato pancakes), but hate frying them in oil. Can an airfryer allow me to happily eat latkes every weekend without the hassle of oil frying?

    I would think so. I haven't had them but if it can do perogies without issues, why not. 400F for 15min seems to be most things.

    First, air fryer is a glorified fan with a heating coil. Last, it just works.

    It is not a miracle that replaces hot oil with air. Put something in without spraying oil on first and it will just toast the surface. Spray oil on first, or put something that has already been deep fried (frozen taters, leftover takeouts). Blast it on the highest setting for a few minutes and have your life changed.

    It doesn't do wet batter quite as well. It could work, just expect it to be crispy on one side.

    ^this.
    your best bet would be to make a giant batch frying, freeze them, then use airfry to reheat every weekend.

    I made Shake N Bake chicken breasts the other day and roasted lil nugget potatoes. Everything came out decent. Just have to work on the timing of the cook on the breasts. But ALOT faster than if I cooked it in oven

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Air fryer's are the best! I barely use the microwave or the oven now, it is much quicker than the oven and tastes better than reheating in the microwave.

    So I went to turn on my convection oven from the Whirlpool app this morning and noticed a new Air Fry mode. A quick google shows that this was pushed out recently as a software update:
    https://www.theverge.com/2022/1/4/22...cooking-gadget

    This sentence in the article made me laugh because I bet there is absolutely no difference between the Convection Bake setting and this new Air Fry setting:
    Whirlpool didn’t respond to The Verge’s question about how the air fry mode would differ from the convection setting that many of its smart ovens are equipped with
    Ridiculous lol

    ^Whoa!
    WtF is that?! Is this some BBQ channel for "if you like car videos from Schmee, you'll love this" type of deal?

    Dunno, I've been really into his stuff the past two years. Basically the only "social media" I follow.

    He knows his shit and you can't argue with his results. He also cycles through all kind of equipment showing how to get the results you want no matter the tool.

    The rest I blame thoroughly on being dutch ( my first thought was French Canadian, but its dutch ).

    He was so concerned with if he could that he never asked himself if he should.
