    Air Fryer Delights!

    We bought an air fryer in order to add more fish to our diet without a lingering fishy odor in the condo: it was a spectacular success! First, we prepared various "soft" veggies (zucchini, okra, Chinese broccoli, local sweet chili peppers, etc) before trying the hard veggies (carrots, squash). I brushed on a mixture of EVOO, minced garlic and black pepper. When they were done, into the air fryer went 2 pieces of Tasmanian salmon with fresh dill. Succulent salmon with little fishy fragrance. The process, the result:

    Good idea but you didn't have an oven already ?

    and air fryer is an oven with a big fan, nothing more, nothing magic, nothing that cannot be done with a standard oven.

    It's weird for me that people can live without at least a small electric oven, what are you usually eating ? only $hit fried food ?
    you can cook everything in a 1000 thb oven, chicken, fish, french fries, etc... But yes, Thai know nothing about ovens and only eat their $hit fried food. Poor them to be so clueless.

    Air fryers/convection ovens are da bomb! I got one a couple of months ago and use it all the time. Makes GREAT fries. Cooked a whole chicken which came out beautiful. I even cooked a steak in it!


    And, like TC says, no smelly kitchen.

    The Air Fryer is only good to the user with a bit of common cooking scene.

    Most on here would be dumbstruck.

    They do look to be in a rather poor condition.

    You need to spray everything with oil before you cook it in the air fryer


    Air Fryer is fantastic no need to preheat like you have to do with an oven , in the morning breakfast i put the onion rings garlic mushrooms and sausages in the air fryer , Happy Days

    If the results are as the vegetables in the OP then I'll give it a miss. I don't mind putting in a little more effort for far greater reward.

    Surely the quality of the food produce going in to the fryer is of greater importance to the final outcome.

    I would have thought that great produce in a crap frier probably generates crap food. But as noted, this is a new area for me.

    I'm not so sure. I would expect that a lower priced fryer produces just as good results than a more expensive fryer, dependent on quality of raw produce of course. Maybe the more expensive fryers are of a better build quality, possibly larger, have a few more bells and whistles, but I can cook you a steak on a piece of chicken wire over an oil drum that will taste just as good as I can do on a top end grill.

    Yes, I bet they'd look at you as if you were typing utter gibberish.

    We have the Philips HD9218 Air Fryer. We haven't had much luck with it to be honest. Frozen chips came out tasting like cardboard. Pork belly was ok. We tried to cook a pie in there too but it was cold in the middle. This was just experimenting, I'm sure we could find some tips online.

    I have a filthy rich friend that I tend to buy everything off dirt cheap when a new model comes out. Paid 1,000b for this.

    Exactly, no big difference, just bigger and more watt for some.

    Otto is enough for most.

    Anyway people who know how to cool good food do not need an air fryer :-)
