Has anyone used an Air Fryer before?

Recommended Posts

Dear Folks,

 

Thinking of making some fried chicken wings and French fries but have always been concerned about the amount if oil used in conventional cooking.

 

I was looking at some youtube videos and was quite amazed at the little amount of oil used in the air fryer.

 

Has anyone used this before? Would appreciate if you could share your experience.

 

Would the food be crispy? I am particular interested in making fried chicken and pomfret. Is this machine good?

Not that I used it, but my wife uses it frequently and the product is pretty good!

 

Yes the chicken wings that comes out are crispy and not oily.

 

Its amazing that u can cook stuff without oil and still tastes as good

I got one at home. Became a white elephant. Tried to do fried chicken but the skin got stuck onto the wire mesh container inside. Damn hard to wash. Maybe I'm not doing it right but after a few times trying, I gave up [:/]

Looks like quite a good investment for someone who likes to eat fried food.

 

Suitable to fry promfet using this machine?

 

Does it take longer time to fry chickens wing compared with conventional method?

 

Is it easy to clean?

 

Sorry, I have so many questions. :)

i have. it's just working like a convection oven.

Fries tend to be more like jagabee then macdonald's french fries

 

have to be careful, don't use on solid surface. Cos the hot air vents out, discolored my solid surface.

I suggest only place it on wood or other surfaces which u know can handle the heat.


i've only tried french fries. Lol...

fried must use oil then is nice.
