What's the deal with Air Fryers?
I've seen a lot of people buying and recommending these. For those that have them. What do you like about them? What do you use it for? Why can't I just use my oven? Do I really need one?

Yes you need one. They make amazing veggie tots and chicken nuggets which is why we use it. Also, it’s quick to heat up and it doesn’t heat up the whole house like an oven does. You can use it to cook anything. Pork tenderloin? Yup. One that’s wrapped in bacon? Yup yup. Crispy bacon and a tender pork tenderloin?!? You betcha.

Melissa Qualle pork wrapped in crispy pork sounds delicious. Which one do you have?

A cheap one. I bought mine ages ago and it’s a gowise USA one. If I could go back in time I’d probably buy a bigger one and more expensive. I think it’s worth the investment.

I believe an air fryer is the same thing as a convection oven only smaller

I love mine, but I will say I can’t make that much food in it at once. You seem to need to space food out enough for air to circulate around it to you know...air fry it. But I tend to only use it when I cooking for just me bc I hate waiting to cook in batches

Also, you need space to store it. Ours takes up as much room as the largest instant pot.

Marston Gould I have a convection oven. I use the convection roast feature for making cookies now and I'll never go back. It also did an amazing job on my thanksgiving turkey. So, it seems like the main advantage to using an Air Fryer over my convection oven would be to put less heat into my house. Seems like more of an issue for July and August here in Seattle.

My air fryer has 9 features including convection oven, toast, roast, dehydrate, bake, etc.
I use it for baking small stuffs like sweet potatoes. It's just inconvenient to turn on my large kitchen oven to do it. I like my air fryer particularly because it's really bothering me when I need to deep fry stuffs but Air fryer saves me time and effort (and oil) to deep fry foods.

We use it all the time, its great for tots, brussel sprouts, fries, nuggets. Ours is also a pressure cooker, so we can do all the instapot recipes as well. I like how it will auto shut off at the end of the set time, making it hard to screw up and burn things. The air frier can easily cut 30 minutes of prep/cooking time compared to equal quality roasting in the oven. Also great for warming up cold pizza!
