I'm shopping for one myself, 20% off coupon from Bed, Bath & Beyond may be put into play. Or I may buy ATK's book first to see what I can do with one.

I finally used my air fryer to cook off some chicken wings. The first batch ca,e out slightly undercooked due to the differences in size between the different wing sections. The second batch turned out a whole lot better. They were nice and crisp.

I followed the recipe suggestions in the "cookbook" that came with the airfryer. I think that the next time I prepare wings, I will drag the wings through a seasoned cornstarch rather than seasoned flour. I also will cool the wings a bit longer to get them good and crispy.

I am very satisfied with my results and I will be looking for some other ways to use it.

I think it is safe to say, more people like or love their air fryers than don't.

I hope so. Amazon had a 50% off coupon for a 3.2L one with good reviews, for $29.99 I figured it was worth a shot.

i find it to be a particularly unattractive appliance so i dont really want to want one. however, i like things that are improvements on what i currently use so i have looked into it. from my online research; it seems like if i am happy with my toaster oven; then i probably shouldnt bother with an air fryer. so i havent gotten one.

My wife ordered one.

We used it once and it now sits in a cabinet in the garage.

Maybe we're old curmudgeons but it was a gadget looking for problem that didn't exist for us in our day to day cooking.

Will probably end up on our list of items to sell at the next neighborhood garage sale.

There are a few people out there that feel as you do. Nothing is right for everyone. I bet we are older than you and yet, I can't imagine not having one. It does take some getting used to. If I lived closer to you I would be glad to take it off your hands.

Well more than unattractive I fine them strange looking. I have friend that thinks like you though. In fact I don't even know if she has a toaster oven. For us, the toaster oven is a must and so is the air fryer. We use them for totally different things.

We now have our new deluxe version. No, I didn't buy it, it was given to me a couple days ago, but old one is going to charity as is my toaster oven. I used it last night just to heat up a frozen casserole and it worked great. This morning I browned bagels: again perfect, mush better than my toaster oven does them. Tomorrow will be the real test: I am trying a whole chicken. Even old ladies can still have things to get excited about.

We have learned the joy of small things.
