20 minutes?

Yep, about 20 minutes: I did 15, then turned them for about another 5 of so minutes. It might have been a couple minutes longer but not much. They were the small size already cut. The kids loved them and so did the adults.

There must be significant differences in equipment. I generally have wings out in under 10 minutes.

I love my air fryer, but not for the things I thought I would love it for. Haven't been happy with any of the fake fried chicken recipes that I've tried, but I love it for doing simple seasoned (non-breaded) chicken breasts or heating up frozen items.

I use my air-fryer almost everyday of the week. It's quick and gets the job done without excess oil. Also it's easy to clean. The one caveat is that the coating tends to peel after some time. I've researched and it looks like this is not harmful even though it looks like crap. In any case, I'm glad I bought mine.

My son bought me one. I use it to crisp precooked Costco bacon. Delish and so much better than microwaving it.

He uses his for frozen veggies - sprays them with olive oil and cuts up a polish sausage, cooks it all together.

They've apparently had a change of heart, I just received an Email from them offering an ATK book on air-frying at a substantial discount that begins by saying: Are air fryers really worth the investment of money and counter space? Yes, if you’re looking to use less fat in your cooking, minimize fuss and mess, prepare fast meals and sides that satisfy adults and kids alike, and achieve consistently great results. As you can tell, I’m a convert.

great: I have never been sorry we have ours and am hoping, at a garage sale this weekend to pick up a second one.
