Does anyone use an air fryer? If so, what foods do you use it with? Are you happy with your air cooker? Thoughts/tips/brands you use?
I have one and my overall thoughts are…”meh.” I use it for French fries and tots when you want them to be crispier than the oven can do but not fried. I have an oil mister that I use with it to lightly spritz oil. Our favorite thing to make in it is copycat chick-fil-a sandwiches. But honestly, you could do those in the oven faster and easier too. You can’t really layer stuff in there (especially if there is breading) because the breading sticks and comes off when you turn the food.
I have heard @bjs03 talking about hers, maybe she can share some tips?
The air fryer is still new to me, but I am liking it. Deep fried foods are not a normal in our diet, but we did deep fry on occasion (outside so it didn’t stink up the whole house). Last night I make chicken tenders (cut up boneless, skinless chicken breasts) with a buffalo seasoning rub. The chicken is crispy on the outside but so juicy inside; baking in the oven would dry these out. I also like sliced zucchini, lightly seasoned, in the fryer. Try sweet potatoes fries… yum! If you are on Pinterest, I just found lots of Air Fryer recipes. I think this is going to be fun to have crispy eats without the grease.
Last night’s air fryer pork chops were very tender and juicy and still had the crispiness we like.
