For anybody that is calorie conscious and has not tried one of these - you are missing out! Wings are crispy and awesome with half the calories and no fried greasy stink in the house.
Jicama and sweet potatoe fries come out great as well.

Air friers are legit. My in-laws keep cut up and seasoned sweet potato fries on standby in the fridge. Just grab a handful and throw them in.

Nice. Even outside of the health benefits, I have not been able to find wings that compete with what I can make in an air fryer. Minimal clean up is awesome too.

Took mine out for the first time yesterday and tried sweet potato fries with no luck yesterday. Will be trying again though!

My Mom gave me one about 3-4 months ago. It is still in the box in my garage. May need to get it out and try it.

Agreed. Unless you have a true deep fryer wings are difficult at home. No longer!

Man I heard bad things when they first came out. Seems like they’re on point now. If they make a good wing, that’s all I needed to know.

Ordered.

They do good at wings and a few other things. I got one as a gift but wouldn’t buy one with my own money. We actually got rid of it in a garage sale not too long ago.

Yes, wings and chicken legs I have done turned out great. Tater tots and fries really good too. Wasn’t a fan of the fish I tried to do. Interested in the grilled cheese thing. Just make like normal and throw it in there??

I didn’t think anything was necessarily bad. It just wasn’t as good as I expected it to be. Try to fry fish in it and get back with me. It works well for things already cooked, frozen tots, chicken nuggets etc. Kind of like the oil free turkey fryer, just not the same as deep fried. There’s no way to replicate deep fried without deep frying. You see the comments, frozen stuff, chicken wings and potatoes. It just took up space so we got rid of it.

I agree with this. The only things i've found it does just as good or better is Wings. Everything else we have done in it is good or great, just not as good or great as conventional methods. The biggest selling point is ease of use and cleanup. We use it when we are feeling lazy, which is often .

To the OP, what brand and model air fryer do you have, and to those that are in the know, which ones are good, and which should I avoid?

Look into the char-broil oil-less turkey fryer.
We cook our wings on this and they are fantastic.

My wife tried keto chicken tenders in it last year and they turned out awesome, in fact we don't even think about normal breading anymore. Take a bag of cheap pork rinds crunch them up and roll the chicken in it and cook

I use it to heat up leftovers. Reheated fried chicken is almost as good as fresh. Cookies, Quesadillas, sausage, peach cobbler, fish and buck sticks are frequent visitors to the air fryer.

I really don’t know but she bought both of ours from HEB. First was a small apartment size unit which my daughter now has and the 2nd is big, about the size of a kuerig machine. They had them on sale for $49 back in July. That was a steal!
