I have something like the actifryer and I love it. I've made several things in it and it's pretty good. No heating up the house or dealing with grease splatters or disposing of oil. Not to mention health benefits too. Batter fried works fine in mine, made beer battered fish with a tbsp of oil. Awesome.

This is the one I got. I'm wondering how to make batter fried food with it.


Bing images




I did try an "eggroll". Just took eggroll wrapper and put ham and cheese in it. Sprayed with olive oil and put in fryer for 7 minutes. A little overdone, looked burnt but didn't taste the burnt. Was crispy but different than deep fried.


Yes, I will keep it and try different things with it. Wanted to make firecracker shrimp with it.


I'll keep you posted on how it does. I'm all for no stinky fried smell or messing with oil. We don't fry much, but might now.


Chicken fried steak is on the list soon. I think it will work good for that.

I've seen an infomercial w/ christina Ferrare and her daughter advertising it.
I forget what she made.

But I don't think I'm interested.

Made some firecracker shrimp, shrimp in eggroll wrapper with tail sticking out. It worked MUCH better when I put them in a bowl then added oil and coated them well. Before I was spraying them with oil.


Yesterday I also cleaned out my deep fryer. Nasty mess. Don't know if it's worth doing all that again, I hate that job.


Directions did say to thaw frozen food first before putting in air fryer. I need to plan better, or just make all fresh.


Huge bonus for me is the no smell and easy clean up. Going to try chicken fried steak soon.

Default Anybody use / own an air fryer?

I'm considering purchasing yet another kitchen toy. Anybody have one? How often do you use it? For what? How do you like it?

We just bought a quasi air fryer that uses a soonful of oil period . It' s awesome from QVC and we just got their pressure cooker and did a corn
beef and although very good would cook it 20 min longer.as it was slightly tough.

While going through today's local paper, there was an article that caught my attention before searching "Air Fryer" on CD-Forum (readers' opinions). It was Todd English, "The Air Fryer Cookbook". I then searched Google for top rated reviews. Best Reviews - Top Air Fryers - Updated April 2016. Points - The Good, The Bad and The Bottom Line. I had been at Bed, Bath and Beyond some time back when one of these caught my attention, I believe it may have been the T-Fal Actifry. Plan to do some more reading but the air fryer seems to be a pretty good idea and I may at some point decide to get one. 20% off with a coupon.


There was a remark about being healthy and that one point (I'm sure there is more than one, particularily, if you do end up using any oil [tablespoon?], which oil will you use?) - it's only as healthy as the item that you put in the air fryer to begin with.


Love to hear others experience and what you air fryed and if you used any oil - which one.


Hope the Captain made his chicken fried steak by now
