    So for stuff like hash brown sticks and fries that's probably no biggie. Looking to "air fry" battered cod, but it's pretty delicate.

    Yeah anything with a wet batter I don’t think would work well in an air fryer. Maybe two pieces at a time but that sounds tedious and ineffecient if you have more than 2 people to feed

    Freezing the wet batter first then it will probably work. Eggwash then light flour may also work. Wet batter will just make a mess in there. I imagine it's quite drafty. I had a couple potato chips blown into the element. They werent stuck there but burnt pretty good.

    See a couple days ago I though I wanted an air fryer. But now it seems it's not big enough to make a meal for the family, and won't cook the things I fry right now.

    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 . .
    Surely you aren't implying I am particularly intelligent. That ship sailed at least a decade ago.

    It'd be a great gift - so long as your wife doesn't get pissed at things which imply she belongs in the kitchen. Even if she does.

    Yeah, it just blows hot air everywhere and due to the small cavity it heats up quick and cooks quick. To my surprise I find I prefer fried foods not so greasy.

    The only disadvantage it seems is that without a hot coating of grease, food cools quickly. So shoestring fries, as example, are best consumed immediately.

    No, it isn't as earth shattering as the microwave but it really is the best way to cook certain foods imo.

    We used to have an Actifry thing. It took up too much space and rarely got used, so we got rid of it. However, I've been wanting a pressure cooker just for cutting down on meal prep time. Was going to get the instantpot, but ended up getting the Ninja Foodie Delux. Has the airfryer thing built into it, and it is also a pressure cooker, rice cooker, etc, etc. So far I'm pretty happy with it. Does fries really nice with the airfry function. Also I'm pretty happy that I got rid of our rice cooker, and crock pot as well.

    I bought an Acti-fry about 5+ years ago, still by far my most used appliance. Great for reheating pretty much anything, cooking Bacon, anything from frozen. Surprised it's still going!

    Wait you have to preheat the air fryer? I just throw shit in and cook. I made some bomb ass greek chicken breasts last week. Juicy af. SO simple. Normally they'd be dry when I cooked 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.

    bought a Ultrean Air Fryer, 4.2 Quart from Amazon for the wife, we made a fried steelhead trout for dinner and it was perfect and easy to make and clean.
    can't wait to make some wings, bacon and pork bbq later this week.

    Anything that's greasy in nature is great in air fryer.

    The wings were pub quality. It has been used a heck of a lot more than i thought I would use it.

    I wouldn't put bacon wrapped anything in the actifry... you'd lose the bacon off the wrap pretty quickly.

    We use ours at least a few times a week - super easy to do stuff like hashbrowns, fries, etc.

    We also will put salmon in it once in awhile for a quick dinner - super quick.

    Wings come out super crispy, we have a rack that we place inside and it allows a double layer for wings and stuff, still probably takes at least 2 full loads to get enough wings for a dinner (for two people), but better than nothing.

    This is why we have two. One that rotates, another that is basically just a convection oven.
