30 minutes? Per batch?  Ridiculous.

/I have one. It's great. Fast and economical. Even things like the part-baked baguettes that say cook in an oven for 15 minutes take seven in the air fryer.

I know that people think that the fat from deep frying is a bad thing, but it's not.  If you don't over-fry the food, not much fat penetrates into the food.  And air fryers are overrated.  Just use a convection oven and you can do the same thing in larger batches.

I have a deep fat fryer as well, so it's not a case of one or the other. I use whichever is best for what I'm doing. I make my own KFC fried chicken and use the fat fryer.
But for lots of things the air fryer is far faster and more economical.

Ya, but if I want to have 12 wings, why fire up my convection oven when the air fryer is faster and more economical?

I have a microwave that is also a convection oven, "air frys" 12 wings perfectly

"2 Tbsp. mild hot sauce (preferably Frank's RedHot)"

Haha.. mild, not in this house.

Maybe you could use sugar water or mayo, Claire.

Obstinate people:

"A high speed convection oven is just a low speed convection oven because I have no concept of how the rate of circulation affects heat flux. "

Yes an air fryer is a convection oven, yes it can achieve different results than some types of convection oven because it is designed for a very specific thing.

Nope.  Not the same at all. Air fryers heat a smaller space at higher velocity. And are a lot cheaper.

To go even further with this point, a regular home oven is also a convection oven just with even slower airspeed than a "convection oven" which in turn has lower airspeed than an "air fryer"

The Earth is just a slow convection oven in the summer hemisphere.

Because buying an air fryer costs money, while you don't need to buy an extra convection oven when you already have one.

A full sized oven will typically use 3kw and take, for example, twenty minutes to cook something.
An air fryer will use 1500 watts and take half the time to cook the same thing.
At 40p per kwh that is a saving of 30p.
If you do that every day that is a saving of £110 a year.
You can buy an air fryer from under £50.

If you have a large family and cook a lot of stuff every meal then a larger oven could work out better. If you're a couple and just oven cook a few things every evening then an air fryer could save you a lot of money.

That's totally fair...the other argument here in the states is that our housing market is so terrible, not many of us have the extra room for an air fryer.  I have a toaster oven that I've had for years in the only available counter space I have.  When that breaks down, I'll probably cave and buy an air fryer...but not before then.

Fortunately, running a convection oven is free, amiright?

Or you could not force someone to take out their slide rule, and quit demanding that everyone use buried-earthenware-in-the-backyard cooking because you are trying to look so farking novel.

MUCH cheaper than going out and buying the trendy new appliance just because you heard about it on the intarwebs.

Because air fryers were created and released last week. Your flint and steel is the only way to go, Julia.

I was hesitant to embrace the thing when i got my air fryer last christmas, so it sat there for a month before i opened it up. It sees use several times a week. Keeping the crockpot and pressure cooker too as they both have their uses, dont bbq much in winter. I started out breading everything and got tired of it pretty fast. I make these unbreaded chicken nugs once a week, super easy and tasty and useful in a lot of recipes and munchable all by themselves. 

Be sure to process and cook these within a day of buying the chicken cause ive had it go bad in 2 days in the butchers wrapping even though fridge is plenty cold enough.

Buy 2-3 lbs boneless skinless leg meat, 3 or 4 peices. I like the premarinated garlic and herb stuff or get plain and a bottle of your favorite marinade. Cut it into larger nug size chunks and ziploc them with your marinade for half an hour. Longer for stronger flavor.
Line the fryer bottom with foil to catch drips. Preheat the fryer to 400
Usung heavy duty foil create 2 pouches, put in the chicken with fresh marinade and close the pouches on top so marinade doesnt escape. Use plenty of foil.

Load into the preheated fryer, 35 minutes at 400, no flip needed.  check pouches with probe for 200 degrees, Let rest for a few minutes. Tong your nugs into a fresh ziploc. I let the pouches cool awhile then toss them. Done right with no spills the fryers ready for something else right away.

Is that how you buy stuff?  Not everyone is like you, you know.
