Mrs KDS777 bought one and we used it once.

It now sits on what I call her "trophy shelf" in the kitchen with all the other expensive and mint condition unused appliances that were a good idea at the time.

Our Nespresso and Instant Pot are the only things we use almost daily/weekly.

For the first time I tried cooking some beef in here. I had gotten a few cheap Choice boneless chuck roasts to sous vide, and thought Id cut some 1.5 by 4 strips to try in the air fryer.

Put some Montreal seasoning on them, and cooked for 12 minutes at 400 degrees. Although the meat was a bit tough, it was medium-medium rare, and had good flavor. Im going to try it with some sous vide meat when its done.

So after reading and rereading this thread for the past few years, I still haven't bought one. I still "think" I want one but I also have a trophy shelf of barely used appliances in addition to a shelf of seasonal appliances such as a shaved ice maker.

Easy way to figure out if this appliance is for you is to make a little mark in a calendar each day you believe that an Air Fryer would have been useful.
For instance - Would you have added some olive oil and garlic roasted zucchini and mushroom or leeks or bell pepper and onion pieces to your lunch and dinner if you’d had an Air Fryer handy?
Or would you have popped in some potato rosti/hash browns or chicken pieces from the freezer?
Would some hot and caramelised pieces of fruit been a welcome addition to your porridge that day?
How about an egg frittata for lunch or a snack?
Would that roast dinner have been improved with a fool proof Yorkshire pudding?

Be honest to yourself about whether or not you would have bothered to use the Air Fryer and see how many calendar marks you accrue.

(I don’t have many unused appliances, but I do have a manual shaved ice maker - alas, the template pot which you freeze the water into the correct shape with split. Haven’t given up on the fantasy of getting a replacement. Somehow.)

I was not too interested in an air fryer until I read your post about Yorkshire pudding and caramelized fruit. At this time of year, I would probably have lots of marks on my calendar.

What cooking vessel should one use for Yorkshire pudding in an Air Fryer?

I have the square metal container (bake pan) Phillips made for the AirFryer.
Makes a Yorkshire pudding for four beautifully - and you need less cooking fat than the recipes usually call for

Any pan that fits and is fully heat resistant should do it though, doesnt need to be non stick.

I use individual metal muffin cups. The idea is metal transfers the heat to heat the oil properly.

I just saw that Walmart was putting a Gourmia toaster oven/air fryer on sale for their early Black Friday sale. Weve been very happy with our Gourmia air fryer we got at Costco 3 years ago.

At $49, it looks nice, and has a lot of very good reviews. Free shipping, too.
corky and boxo like this.

For those who waited longer, it was $39 at Target, and mine just arrived a few hours ago. Thinking we'll try fish tacos tonight.

Wow, $39 for that model is great. I think the normal price is $79 or $89.

Weve used ours a few time so far, and really like it.

Did I miss out, or is it still on sale somewhere?
