    Picked this up off of Amazon after hearing tremendous amount of praise for the Air Fryers. So now I'm looking to throw in some taters (with a southern twang) and chicken tenders for another way to get in some good food without all the fat.


    Those with air fryers what brand you have, what recipes should we try, and what are the pros/cons you would like to share.

    These seem very popular lately, lots of people talking about them where I work. I am interested, might just have to buy one and try it.

    Steak came out good.

    Where the foreman grill was the marvel of the last decade and the microwave before that, this may be the new cooking marvel of this generation.

    How fast this cooks food is amazing. The question now is which company will have the best air fryer for the money and durability.

    I'll have to revisit this thread when I cook either stuff.

    My wife has been wanting to get one of those. Does it really cook food that much better then the oven?

    Just finished my meal prep for the week using it and for those looking to meal prep for health this may be a new "must" because of speed and convenience.

    though the temptation is there, I will just stick with the toaster oven for the time being.

    I got one for Christmas. I absolutely love mine. I've cooked just about everything in it and it all comes out really good. I started my weight loss journey in December and this thing has really helped. My favorite food to cook in it is fish. It comes out tasting fried without any oil used at all. Honestly I cook almost every meal in it. Now once the weather warms up I'm sure I will grill more often (there's nothing like a steak from my Holland grill) but for the time being, the air fryer is doing most of the cooking in my house.
