17. Potatoes

Mine will air fry about 1 pound at a time. I use the small potatoes, cut each in half, mix with olive oil and seasonings and run for 20 minutes at 360 degrees.

18. That's pretty much how I roast them in the oven now, but it takes longer.

Anyway, the air fryer was out of stock, so Iím out of luck.

7. Don't be. I use mine for everything I can. Checken? Awesome. French Fries? The best.

Cornbread in a small bunt pan? Great. Fish? Delightful. My Ninja is without a doubt the best kitchen appliance I have ever had, and the most used.

11. Think of it as a "small convection oven"...

lots of youtube videos showing what it will do.

Got mine for $30 on Black Friday (to use with the 50 lb bag of potatoes I bought).

13. Got a convection oven? Or a toaster oven with a "turbo" setting? You got one already.

"Air fryers" are basically small-chamber electric convection ovens that use fans to circulate the hot air around the food.

You can achieve the same results in a convection oven or a toaster oven with a "turbo" setting by purchasing a mesh basket or metal steamer set and arranging your food on it the same way you would in an air fryer, and using the "convection" or "turbo" setting.

As the chamber is likely larger than the dedicated small-chamber "air fryer" your cooking time may vary.

But you won't have to find storage space for yet another single-use appliance.

helpfully,
Bright

16. Do it! I LOVE mine.

Amazing, fast results. Whole chickens are awesome!

Chicken wings to die for!

Anything you'd deep fry you can do here for half the calories and healthier options.
