    Been thinking about it. Post back after using it for a while to let us know if it is something to have or just a gimmick.

      Seconded. Need real world info not some infomercial bs about real world applications.
      Whenever there is doubt, there is no doubt.

        I think the gimmick is the term air fryer. It's an electric convection oven.

          We pretty much stopped using our oven after getting one. Obviously it can't replace a pan and oil for things that need deep fried.

            I have a toaster oven that has a giant fan on top that blows straight down. I don't think this is an "air fryer" per say, but man, it cooks things VERY fast. Frozen pizzas are done in literally 1/2 the time as an oven, and at a lower temperature. I've had to adjust how I cook/bake things in the toaster oven compared to my old one with no fan. If you go by the times and temperatures on the box, you WILL end up with a briquette.

            I've never really used my oven, I don't need to heat up something that large just to make a meal, so I've always used toaster ovens.

              Both of you need one, trust me!

              The wife made me home made 5 Guys style cajun fries last night in the air fryer. You really cant tell the difference between air fried or deep fried if done right. They also make frozen treats like wings, potato skins and mozzarella sticks taste restaurant style instead of soggy and gross like ovens do to that type of stuff.

                    Another board I'm on with a small group has weekly threads on what is being done in the air fryer, they say it is the greatest invention ever.
                    Hey, don't lob factual statements at me as if they're insults

                      It would be nice if you posted pics and tell us what brand, is it the Ronco one? That one looks nice. Or is it the $69 one?

                      I am skeptical because in the end, these are 110v, 12A, and that's only 1500 watts. Hard to believe 1500 watts is getting shit done, I use my oven as a broiler and searing device sometimes, crank that shit up past 500 and I get fantastic homemade pizzas out of it. I can't believe that a countertop-plug in device has the power to scorch my crusts and get that carmelization I like on a Detroit style pizza (the only pizza worth eating btw).

                        I haven't mastered ours yet or got that crazy with trying much in it. I LOVE it for reheating foods - we had leftover egg rolls the other evening and I threw them in there for a couple minutes and they came out perfect.
