Every kitchen tool has its limitations. A great microwave and convection oven are our first used tools.

But we use the air fryer virtually every day cooking frozen french fries, reheating day old biscuits/rolls (pizza) and frozen foods of all kinds. I seldom cook more than a couple of items in it, however.

Seldom are we in the kitchen but a few minutes.

I own and use both, but I use my air fryer a lot more. It gets used at lease once a day, sometimes more

I am very satisfied with my results and I will be looking for some other ways to use it.
Make sure the pieces are similar in size, and the basket isn't over crowded. Use the recipes in the provided cookbook as a starting point. There are thousands of recipes online & in other cookbooks.

I've been happily been using mine for close to 4 yrs.

Sounds good, but you may discover 3.2L isn't big enough. Or it may be the perfect size.

I was happy with my toaster oven, but it did have some limitations. So I got my airfryer. There are things that cook better in the toaster oven, while others in the airfryer. But both are very useful. Unfortunately my toaster oven died a while back. So things I would cook in that a forced into my traditional oven. But I will replace it when I have extra $$.

Just consider a toaster oven as a mini traditional oven.

Here is a recipe you can try for beer batter.
