We did cinnamon rolls in ours last Sunday. They were from a can and came out perfect. We heated them at 370 degrees for about 7 minutes.

I pack my kids lunch for school every morning. Often, I'll throw in a chicken drumstick from the night before in there with a few other things. Well, last night I fell asleep and didn't get to make them. So this morning, I woke up, made them breakfast, and threw 8 drumsticks in the air fryer (they were seasoned last night.) I went to get ready for work, came back down 30 minutes later, and they were done, down to a crispy skin and juicy flesh. Unless you're cooking a giant meal, it can be quite useful and a huge time saver, with next to no monitoring needed.
They got their lunch, and I grabbed some to take to work too. I love it.

Hard to wash, are you serious? As for the Geoge Foreman grills, those 2 if the grills come out are a piece of cake to clean. That is one reason I love the air fryer. They are easy to clean. The same with the Griddler, which is just like a George Foreman. The plates pop out, stick them in the sink for a few minutes and just see how clean they come.

Are they a new hype? Maybe but so were electric coffee pots and slow cookers at one time. I remember when people said slow cookers were just a fad. I remember when my parents got their first electric coffee pot. I guess since you use your air fryer so much like we do, you don't need to be told how great they are, hype or not.

I use them all the time. I'm not knocking them (see my newer comments.) I throw the pieces in the dishwasher now. Works well, especially with a higher quality detergent. I hate hand washing dishes LOL.

Yes we put the cooking part in the dishwasher, it is fine.

Had some beautiful skin on chicken for dinner last night, the skin is so crispy & the kitchen does not get too hot. It is my favorite kitchen appliance.

I have Facebook friends who have posted comments about and pictures of things they have cooked in their air fryers, and I have to admit I'm intrigued. One friend whose husband had a heart attack says they cook "fried" chicken that is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside and very delicious. Also have posted pictures of "fried" green tomatoes and onion rings and spring rolls they made and they looked delicious.


There are a lot of air fryer recipes on Pinterest.
