do you think the frozen ones do better or about the same? Can I throw fries, mozzeralla sticks, pepper poppers ect together in it or is it best to do the fries alone?

No more wondering. The keeper of the kitchen ordered her's yesterday afternoon. She informed me just how and what was being moved and to where to accommodate the new gadget. Our kitchen remodel was done just a few years ago and that's it. I'm not tough enough anymore for all that work. I was the designer, contractor, and labor source. I had generous input from a certain someone such as "I want all new ceramic tile to go along with the granite counter tops", etc. and she got it. She even helped with handing me this tool and that tool now and then including a broom and dustpan to clean up with.

I don't think that I've ever seen an air fryer. Is that some newfangled gadget?

Heres one that does it all, air fry, rotessorie, dehydrater, etc.

ChefWave 12.6 Quart Air Fryer, Rotisserie and Dehydrator



Air fryers use high temp heat transferred by air, not conducted to the product via hot oil, kind like a convection oven, hot air at high velocity cooks faster than hot air conducted in still air.. The old conduction, convection, radiation deal.
Horrble link, copy and paste might be required.

Looks like Emeril has one as well

Air fryers are the newest latest-greatest gimmick replacing the pressure cookers that preceded them.
As with most things, some will use them regularly for as long as they can but most will use them till the latest-greatest shtick wears off and shove them into a dark corner.

I was given a toaster oven coffee maker and tried it for a bit, it was great for the items I had then but now I do most cooking on the cooking range and it sits with micro-wave, slow cooker/french fryer, electric frying pan foo-foo cutting board with built in knife sharpener and other items rarely used.

I often fix fries and breaded shrimp or chicken nuggets all at once. Just don't over load it and by the way that stuff already has oil,etc in it. You may want to try the fries first just to get a feel for it. for most things I use almost the highest heat setting for 10 min shake it or turn things in there and do the other side for 10 minutes, that is for frozen items. You will get the hang of it quick.

used it last night. Just made some chicken wings and some frozen mozzeralla sticks and pepper poppers. It browned them but it had a plastic taste to it. Don't know if I should have ran a few cycles through this thing first to break it in but if that taste stays this thing is gone.
