Default Air Fryer

Does anybody on here have one or recommend one? I am looking for one that can dehydrate stuff as well ( mostly sweet potatoes for our dog).

Thanks!

Came here to say this... my mom got us one for Christmas, and maybe it's the model but it doesn't even do one bag of fries, and it takes to much effort to determine how to arrange the food in the small tray. It's primary use is now that my son uses it to climb to upper shelves in our pantry.

lol damn.

My coworker said he uses it a ton. I think it will come in handy if it can dehydrate for me mostly.

I've never used ours to dehydrate anything, but we've had it for over a year now and still use it probably 1-2x's per week. We love it.

What brand do you have, how much can you get in the fryer and what do you typically cook in it?

Why not just get a dehydrator then?

I don't use it enough for just that.

Plus my wife doesn't like the plastic designs of some of them and the metal interiors are more expensive than an air fryer.

Cooks essentials. It's decent size, I hate commenting on generalities, but we've cooked a lot in it. We can cook probably 4-5 decent sized chicken breasts or 3-4 8 oz steaks in it. I feel like the depth is more wasted because you don't want deep layers in it IMO.

Potatoes (both whole and cubed/seasoned), lots of chicken breast. Done steaks before, pretty damn good. Fries/tater tots, etc. Makes a decent grilled cheese as well with light crispy bread and no greasy fingers. Asparagus is pretty decent in it as well.

We probably cook chicken and potato products most.

The air fryers are great for doing fish too. If there is an olive oil place in KC, try experimenting with the different flavors.

I agree on the asparagus comment above. I've always liked asparagus and it comes out good in the air fryer. If I remember right, 375 degrees for about 7 minutes.

Olive tree in town center/Hawthorne plaza has nearly a hundred different infused olive oils, its also the best plain EVOO I have ever tasted.
Highly recommend!

I have always been intrigued by air fryers, never tried anything cooked in one.
