These Air Fryers seem to be the appliance du jour. Anyone here have one? What do you think?

Bought the highly-touted Phillips Airfryer model to replace a broken Farberware 4-qt. deep fryer. We were very disappointed in the finished product as far as taste and texture, the limitations on types of food that can be prepared in them, and sent the thing right back to BB & Beyond for a Breville 4-qt deep fryer. Back in happyland now, lol!

We have a Chefman 2.5 Liter Air Fryer (Boscovs $80). My wife and I love it. It's great for chicken wings.

We found it's difficult to buy frozen pre-breaded seafood that isn't mostly breading. Even Sams Club frozen seafood has too much breading.

So what other foods besides fries and chicken wings do you use this unit for?

Zucchini, mushrooms and anything that can be done in an oven or deep fryer. Only criteria is the food has to fit in the basket.

Personally, for me, initially, I thought it was a very useful gadget and it's healthier than deep frying.. But cleaning is nightmare! It is not true that it does not use oil. If you are cook using fresh ingredients, you'll still need oil. The "no need to use oil" is just for processed food like nuggets, chicken rolls, etc. Fries somehow don't taste good with air fryer.

We use Olive Oil that comes in a spray can and just give what needs a little oil a quick shot, Shake before putting in to mix and then about half way through give another quick shake. Works great for us and tastes are on par with what we get out of a deep oil fryer.

I was so happy to get rid of my small deep fryer. What a mess that was to clean up.

I find red potato fries very acceptable from the air fryer. Flat iron steaks turn out great also.
