I bought my fourth air fryer a few days ago. The two I have still work, but as I mentioned previously, the non stick coating is gone. The round design with the food basket inside a container doesn't leave much room for food. The one I just bought have a square/rectangular design that seems to have more room for food.

Foods cooked with little or without oil won't be as tasty as greasy foods. So air fries won't taste like french fries for sure. But that is a matter of personal taste. After having adjusted to eating non-greasy foods, I find the taste more preferable to the greasy varieties.

My new air fryer is coming.

I agree about the lack of space in the rounds ones, especially if they are the smaller sized ones. So far, 2 years and our non stick coating hasn't failed us, but there are a couple places where it is almost gone. That is why I asked for a new one for Christmas or the multi pan.

I do wonder when you say, you can do anything we the appliances you already have, what do you have that will cook things like french fries is 10 minutes without using oil? I don't mean frozen fries, but freshly cut ones. In fact on think we love about ours is the no need for so many appliances. .
The things I have cooked in it I can make in a conventional way, and it ends up being just as tasty and convenient.

I originally bought it because I was on a extremely low-sodium diet and many of the groups I was in never stopped talking about their air fryers. They claimed it help with the flavor and texture, but I didn't find that to be true either, for me

Pls just google it. I am on IPad right now. Runs around 199 or so. The Cuisinart with toaster oven/toaster. The first one is almost two years old. Corn bread, muffins, baked chicken, ... and the air fry side of it.

Right now two flour tortillas with a bit of olive oil and home made chili powder rolled around a bit of Pepper Jack and Sriracha to dip. Three minutes start to plate. Kitchen counter appetizer for two while I am cotton surfing aka ironing.

Bake it. Super easy, comes out perfect

I have reduced my consumption of deep fried food by about 99% after learning about cancer causing chemicals in reused oil.
It is well documented that fried foods are very bad for your health and as I continue to recover from an illness that nearly took my life I am interested in healthier options. I love fried food as much as anyone else and don't expect an air fryer to make things as good as deep frying but would like to know how close do they come. I would mostly use it for cooking fish, shrimp, squid and veggies, so any comments about air frying those would be appreciated. Switching to a mostly plant based diet has had amazing benefits for me.

I was going to get an air fryer until what I read led me to believe it is essentially a convection cooking method. My oven is convection so it didn't "seem" to make much sense.
