    Wasn’t Dirk the one wanting everyone to deep fry their turkey? Even my fat, beer swilling, red neck brother stopped frying his Christmas turkey a couple of years ago.

    Now he uses his, get this, his AIR FRYER! And his turkey is better than ever.

    (He had his regular oven replaced with a convection oven. Big air fryer.)

    My daughter uses the air fryer as a pie warmer. It's set for 95° for 18 minutes. Comes out perfect every time.

    It’s official – air fryers can save you money. But there are even cheaper ways to cook

    They are selling out as soon as they hit the shelves. So can the kitchen appliances really live up to the hype?

    Name: Air fryers.

    Age: The Airfryer brand was introduced by Philips in 2010, while the term began to be used generically in about 2018.

    I’ve been hearing a lot about them recently. Yes, in past year they have become the kitchen appliance, selling out as soon as they are restocked, flying off the shelves like … well, air-fried cakes.

    You can’t really make a cake in one, can you? You can. They are small convection ovens, which circulate hot air at high speed. They’re also used to simulate deep frying; making food crisp, without having to submerge it in oil.

    So the food’s healthier? Yup, less fat means fewer calories. Healthier on the pocket, too.

    And that’s why they’re hot right now, what with rising living costs and energy prices? Correct!

    Are they actually cheaper? Well, you’ve got to take into account the price of buying the thing – anything from about £30 up to £300. Running costs, though, factoring in time and energy used … Well, as it happens the consumer champions at Which? have just done some research.

    And? To rustle up a roast chicken: 39p to cook, in 76 minutes, in a traditional electric oven. In the air fryer: 53 minutes, 18p.

    Bet it wasn’t as good though. Au contraire. The testers observed that the former was a little dry, while the latter was juicy, tasty and had crispy skin.

    You’ve gotta have crispy skin! Indeed. And actually, the air fryer wasn’t the cheapest way of cooking a chicken. The testers did one in an old-fashioned pressure cooker – it took just 32 minutes, and cost just 11p. No crispy skin, though.

    Mmmm, slimy chook, anyone? What about chips? Thirty-three minutes, and 29p in the oven, while it took 23 minutes, 10p in the air fryer.

    Are we saying that it’s not just a lot of hot air then? The hype is justified? “Our research shows the hype could be justified in some cases,” said Emily Seymour, energy editor at Which?

    Only some cases? She goes on to point out that the savings will be lost if you’re cooking multiple batches. “So it’s still better to use your oven if you’re cooking large quantities.”

    Someone should make one that looks like a monk and call it Fryer Tuck (with a spoonerism warning, obviously). Quick, patent it, it could be the must-have novelty gift for Christmas 23. That’s if air fryers are still a thing then.

    Do say: “Has Nigella got one? I’m only getting an air fryer if she says it’s OK.”

    Don’t say: “Air fryer? Ha, yes I remember. No idea where it is, probably somewhere in the loft, along with the spiralizer

    It’s official – air fryers can save you money. But there are even cheaper ways to cook | Food | The Guardian

    Ninja Foodi 11-in-1 SmartLid Multi-Cooker 6L OL550UK - Ninja UK

    Amazon.co.uk

    Simply amazing and well worth the money. I pressure cooked a pot roast in it the other night.

    An excellent choice
    Ninja makes a quality product . I have both the five in one indoor grill/air fryer and the Mega Kitchen blender /food processor system System. I had them now for several years without a problem.
    One additional benefit to Ninja is that they clean easy ,

    If my five in one ever failed I would get the one you got. Having the pressure cooker must be nice.

    It is real nice, and I cleaned out like 4-5 appliances that no longer clutter the kitchen. Got rid of a pressure cooker, crock pot, rice cooker, sous vide. It is pretty incredible.

    I hear you.
    Using the manual pressure cooker is a pain in the you know what, and I don't have a crockpot here in Thailand.
    I used to love my crockpot back in the US. I would place a whole chicken in it, some vegetables and a tub of the frozen sofrito you buy at Walmart, and leave it along.
    A few hours later the chicken was falling of the bone and the sauce delicious IMO
    I bet you 11in1 has timers for the precure cooler and crockpot also . It must be nice.
    Set it and forget it.
    I am tempted to go and get a 11 in 1
    Post some of the meals you make in it.

    Oh yes, super convenient. Just push a button, set the time and put the pressure lid on. I just did a chuck roast, Yukon gold potatoes, carrots and celery in the pressure cooker, and it was amazing.

    How much for that lot off Jimmy the Skagead?

    I hope you're aware that the haul has been heisted out the door down his grubby track suit bottoms

    Wish I had a dodgy local boozer like that.
