Has anyone ever cooked with an air fryer? If so, can you tell me how food fried that was compares to conventional frying?

    At first glance, deep fryers and air fryers seem quite similar. Both give regular food (such as veggies or pieces of meat) a delicious taste and crunchy exterior. However, the method a deep fryer uses (dunking food into a large amount of hot oil) is much different from that of an air fryer, which coats food with a little bit of oil then blasts it with hot air. If you love traditional fried food, the deep fryer could be your best bet. If you’re a bit more health conscious and want to achieve similar results without entirely giving up that distinctive fried taste and texture, an air fryer could be the optimal choice.

      Thank you very much for the detailed response. I like fried foods, but don't like having to deal with the used oil afterwards-- or the mess that occurs sometimes with splattering (I have deep fryers before, now I just heat oil in a pot on the stove). However, I do want to keep enough of the fried flavor that the air dryer won't wind up hidden in a cupboard because we don't like it.

    It's the first time i hear about airs fryers. It's really interesting because from now on I can use a air fryer to cook delicious bananas or sweet potatoes.

      I answered down below as well, but since then I've done more research. Now I'm confused as to how air "fryers" aren't simply considered small, table top convection ovens. The Youtube demos and reviews I watched were not promising, even though the presenters were very positive about the device. But I've used convection ovens, and while the cook wonderfully, the food is in no way deep fried.

      I know they sell them on Amazon, but honestly, I'm still learning about them myself. I have not idea what would be the best one.
