    Default Air Fryer

    Its my birthday this weekend and i am getting to pick out an air fryer for it! Super excited.

    If you have one, can you tell me what it is and what you like best about it?

    Thanks!

    We have the Philips Viva airfryer - I love it!!

    Pros:
    Healthier cooking
    Saves me turning on the oven for relatively small batches of things
    DIY sweet potato fries...*drool*

    Cons:
    For a large family, the basket may not be sufficient to do enough fish or nuggets for everyone at once - we are just 2 adults and a toddler so I can get everyone's dinner in...but chips have to be done separately because of the space issue!

    Easy to clean, the basket is detachable from the compartment under it, so both can get a good scrub out (I stick it in the dishwasher every few uses).

    Haven't tried a steak in it, but have done a whole roast chicken and it turned out great!!

    So it fits a whole chook! Really! I was under the impression it was really small. How long did it take?

    It fits a small chook (not like those huge ones that are bordering on being turkeys). When I made it, I made the mistake of filling the basket up with veggies too - so it took a lot longer to cook than it should have. The recipe said (from memory) it should take 30-45 minutes. It took close to 75 minutes when I did it - but that was my mistake. Even my veggies were struggling to cook!!

    I have the phillips one, it's tiny but you can buy an XL model as well. Makes super crunchy chips, heaps nicer than deep fried or oven cooked.
    Have 'fried' tofu in it-not quite as nice as deep fried. I think if it were a model like the tefal where you add some oil it may taste better.
    Haven't really done too much else, have done crispy potato skins with potato scraps..lol. umm.. if you want to toast some bread it's super quick to do in the fryer. It actually cooks most things really quick, even from frozen. I've done some vego nuggets so I imagine the chicken version would be the same .
    I still need to experiment with mine. If you have a look online there are heaps of ideas of things you can do. You can even make cake in it!
    I'm not sure if they are really value for money in the long run though.

    I just peeled the skins off with a knife, put them in a bowl and tossed a bit of olive oil through, put in the airfryer and done.
    The kids ate them so they mustn't have been too bad.
