    Is the hype around the air fryer justifiable?

    I have been thinking of buying one because so many people are raving about them. I guess this is an all-in-one cooking machine for loads of different things from sides to meals to dessert. I have not actually used one nor personally know someone who has one where I can check it out. I might use some tax return money and invest in one. They have some that are around $80 that get great reviews. Anyone here use one?

    For the most part it is. Thing is, I tried to cook grilled chicken and it just came out as dry no matter what I did with it. When it comes to frozen fried foods like french fries, chicken tenders, onion rings, mozzarella sticks, it works wonders. Hell, even store bought corn dogs taste awesome from the air fryer. Supposedly, it's good for cooking veggies but I haven't personally tried it yet.

    The quality grill that I purchased around six months ago is all I need the majority of the time. It handles most of what I eat. Otherwise I can fry things like eggs. Occasionally I use a countertop oven. No man worth his salt should "air fry" his food when he can grill instead.

    I've used one as my sister had one and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of foods that it was able to fry. I'm thinking about buying one for myself

    This is what I was thinking it would be best for. Frozen things because I noticed in my oven, I sometimes don't get that good crisp on things anymore and I really don't want to buy a new oven right now since most of the other things it does is fine. The last time I did onion rings in it they went from soggy to burnt in 2 minutes. I would imagine it is a lot harder to burn things in an air fryer, if at all even possible?

    I agree actually. Grilling is the superior form of cookery.
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him....
