    Default So what the fuck is an air fryer?

    So, I think someone examined this to me once , but an air fryer is a toaster oven, but with convection? Is that right? So aside from being smaller than my regular over, what benefit does it have? And why do they call it a fryer?

    People seem to think they are wicked, but I don't get it, and like every thought I have, I'm turning to beyond instead of doing any research at all. TIA , ELI5, STONKS.

    It's a small convection oven that heats up quickly.

    Its a little convection oven with a ton of airflow.

    Wings that used to take a half hour in my oven + 20 minutes to preheat now take 15 minutes in the air fryer +3 minutes to preheat. Wings come out crispy on the outside and steaming on the inside.

    The thing is silly loud.

    Well I tried to give away a convection toaster oven with no success... so I should re-brand it as an air fryer? **

    But seriously, I love the T-Fal actifry for frozen fried foods. Zero work from my part.

    ** Also still seriously trying to give this away.

    Air fryer is an oven for people who cheaped out on their ovens.

    I guess I could tell some redditors that it's being shorted by some hedge funds to drive up demand...

    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.

    OK, I think I'm sold. Now, someone smarter than me, and not jwslam because I don't trust that shifty guy, is his device a real air fryer, or just a toaster oven with a little bit of convection. I'm guessing the air circulation fan needs to be pretty powerful to get these better, faster results?

    Valentines day is coming, so thinking my wife may get one for that day . . .

    My language on beyond.ca is MUCH cleaner than what I use in a professional setting. You can get used to it, or fuck you.

    Our family has two.

    We have the convection oven style from pampered chef. Its amazing for wings, reheating pizza, chicken nuggets, ect. Like pub food.

    Then we have an actifry. Its hands down the best way to cook french fries, tatertots, and or cubed potatos.

    We wouldn't have two but just recently the wife got the pampered chef one for free.

    I like our air fryer for cooking smaller amounts of food and crisp up the skin on chicken. I also cook burgers and pork chops in there. The oven only gets used for larger items like big beef roasts or Turkey.
    The big plus with the air fryer is there is no time required to pre heat to get to temperature before you put in your food to cook. Then when the time you set it to cook finishes, it turns off.

    I have a breville convection toaster oven and the level of convection isn't comparable. I assume it's the same here.

    This sounds like the kind of conversations people used to have about microwaves.

    We have this as well and I have zero complaints. We only use the big over when something is too big for the Breville. Air fryer though? I pass...

    I have the same. It's not in the same league. The Breville has been demoted back to toasting duties.
