Thanks OP. Been looking at this VS the Acti-Fry VS some of the others. Any thoughts as to which one is the best bang for the buck?

Thanks,
Cal.

gah.... so tempted... tried out the in-laws phillips air fryer (one of the first models) and our tater tots were amazing! and a lot quicker to cook than toaster oven. But so hard to justify the price and kitchen space (even though this model is smaller than the previous ones)... and i don't think it has a lot of volume to cook friend chicken for more than 1 or 2 people... if you have a family with kids... forget trying to make a fried chicken dinner.

Thanks OP.
Just bought one 2 weeks ago and now have to figure out how to return it for refund without any invoice/receipt in the delivered box.

Complete waste of money. I bought this, and sincerely wish I didn't. It doesn't do anything well. Chicken. Spuds. Meatballs etc. Everything is crap. I mean if you have a very low bar for food standards sure. But if you take pleasure in your food, you'll be disappointed by how long this takes to cook, and the food consistency when it's done.
I missed the 30 days to refund with Amazon. Screwed. Ugh I tried offering it to my friends discounted. Nobody wanted it because everyone knows how shitty they are.. Except me. It seems.

Chicken wings/thighs are amazing, get the attachment that lets you have two rows of food otherwise you'll only be able to cook 10 or so wings at a time.
Key is give them space so there is air flow, you'll get really crispy wings/thighs.

Fish is also super simple in this, about 12 minutes for salmon.

I haven't really been impressed with making your own fries.

I have the complete opposite opinion, the food taste better and way less greasier as opposed to traditional pan cooking. It's also way more convenient cooking with less dishes and time. It's the perfect size to feed 1-2~ people and I use it on the daily

Suspect it depends on the food. We also don't fry anything on a daily basis. So aren't used to needing to fry. Hope was I could do more frying with this and end up with a nice crust etc. I gave up.

We usually buy frozen chicken wings and microwave, probably would still give this a try

Same. I think most people would agree that this is a great product. I use mine pretty much daily.

Someone mentioned in another topic to buy an oil spray bottle. There's no oil compartment in these machines and I like greasy food so I picked up a spray bottle from Amazon for $13.

I've heard so many mixed reviews about air fryers in general.
some people love it, some people hate it...
