Can you do something beer battered in the AF or would it have to be a flour/egg/breaded type coating?

Pretty much the egg flour dreaded type. That is one thing that most would miss if depending solely on the air fryer. for us, it is ok, as we don't do beer battered. I guess you could give it a try but I am just not sure it would turn out all that well.

Thanks for the reply! I'm kinda partial to wet-battered fish & chips as I grew up in a town with a number of English/Scottish 'chippies' and being raised Catholic often had fish & chips frequently on Fridays. Fortunately in my current location there's a microbrewery or two as well as fish places that do good English/Scottish style fish & chips. I'm still very early in the air fryer learning curve and still trying to figure out what it can/cannot do. Thanks for the input.

Now I've been driven to look at the Foodi.

I think I will stick with my IP and air fryer.

Anyone interested in the IP Vortex? It is an air fryer made by the Instant Pot people. There are several YouTube videos about it, but I can't tell about how well it works.

I would be interested in it if it could replace my aging countertop converction oven.

If you buy the beer battered, ready made, in the frozen section, it cooks fine in the air fryer. If you wanted to batter your own fish, it might get messy.

That is what we do: I can't remember if they are beer battered or not, but we get them at Sam's They are fantastic in the Air Fryer and again, almost no mess.

AMEN! I ordered the NuWave Bravo XL oven which says it has a 90-day money back guarantee.Tried cooking chicken drumsticks with the probe which should have been foolproof, but they were bloody when they were supposed to be done! Oven is far, far too complicated, too many steps.


Seems impossible to get instructions how to return. CS PHONE IS never answered, even after waiting 30 minutes, email never responded to, BOOKU ADRESSES ONLINE and CS phone numbers! I now know NEVER TO USE MY DEBIT CARD TO ORDER ANYTHING FROM AN INFOMERCIAL ON TV.I SHOULD HAVE USED MY Master Card and/or ordered from Amazon with their A-Z guarantee.


AT LEAST I prevented them from getting the 3rd.and last payment by reporting my card being lost so that acct. was closed! Wonder if the creeps will be calling AFTER THE 22ND AND THEY DISCOVER THE ACCT CLOSED? but i'm still out $120!


One daughter has a smaller NuWave and she told me it will probably go in the garbage, because she tried making fried okra in it and said . She bought hers from a thrift store but she said as the previous poster....This is in no way~ "Frying"! You cannot fry without oil!

I live in an apartment. My appliances are fairly basic.

I've used my AF more in the past month than I've used my IP in the three years I've owned it.
