Air fryers are technology

Are air fryers just bulky, low capacity ovens? Am I just being scammed by buying one? Is there actually a difference in what I can make in an air fryer and an oven? Why would I get an air fryer instead of an oven?

      What does a “convection oven” or a “fan oven” even do that a normal oven doesn’t? To me it sounds like the food would be cooked and would taste the same. Who gives a frick if air is blown on it?

        with a fan oven it blows the heat around inside so food gets cooked evenly on all sides and it can also run at a lower temperature, saving money on energy bills.

          Ovens also cook food from all sides, are you fricking dumb? The whole thing sounds like a scam to trick moron housewives to buy shit they don’t need.
          >“But honey, this uses air technology to cool the food evenly from all sides, we really should buy it!”

          Can anyone on the face of the earth say: “I prefer the food cooked in an air fryer from that cooked in a normal oven”?

            a fan-forced oven just uses a fan to circulate the air faster meaning you use less power for the same cook time. a convection oven uses the thermondynamic properties of hot air to circulate the heat, but this means it needs to run the heating element for longer pulses. wood fired and gas ovens are usually always convection, while most modern electric ovens can do either.
            an air fryer is just a convection oven, exactly like your picture, but because it's smaller it heats up quicker and can heat more evenly and more efficiently.

            when you hit market saturation, name your product differently and sell it again. it works 100% of the time, just look at intel CPUs from 2016-2021. or fricking cars. what has actually changed in a toyota land cruiser or anything else in the last two decades except for the body shape and the stero/infotainment console? maybe a slightly more efficient engine? just change the shape a bit and sell it again. air fryer is just the same as what you have but in a different shape. and people buy it.

            I bought one for my mother and she absolutely loves it, to the point she bought a mini version for the family caravan. Was frankly impressed by the speed at which it cooks stuff, but what really sold me on them was getting a freshly baked croissant from frozen in less than 10 mins.
            I suspect chunky potatoes and some veg may need to be par boiled prior to putting it in the air fryer. I would keep a conventional oven if you have it, for larger items and family roasts.

            Looked this up and I am very tempted to buy it, just wondering how it handles frozen veg. The only issue is the non-stick basket. I'm aware you have to treat the basket gingerly, but is it easy to get spares if the non-stick coating chips?

            I've used mine quite abusively and it hasn't chipped yet, you can use a scour pad and put it in the dishwasher and it still looks fine. It grills just like a grill for the most part for veggies, kabobs, streak, chicken, etc cook just fine on it. So yeah you can just throw frozen veggies in with some lemon pepper and salt and it'll come out pretty good. Also nuggets, corn dogs, burritos, etc all come out excellent, almost worth it just for how it cooks a corn dog and nugget but ultimately what it's best at is grilling meat.

            do you know what wind chill is? it's the same as that but in reverse.

            I actually prefer my chicken tendies in my air fryer because the meat seems to stay juicier than when it's made in my toaster oven (which has a convection setting, there's no comparison to the air fryer really). That being said, it's not as versatile as a regular oven or toaster oven, if I could only own one, I would choose more traditional style ovens.

          There's a difference between an electric oven and a wood or other material combustion oven. Namely, in the latter, the extra oxygen actually accelerates the reaction making more heat rather than circulating existing heat.

            No? What does that have to do with anything I said? I'm pointing out there's a difference between what happens when you direct a fan at a bunch of burning wood or charcoal and what happens when you direct it at an electric oven such as an air fryer. There's some pretty fundamental differences between a mud and brick furnace for melting metals and a convection oven.

    They are the most convenient way to make chicken tendies.

    Generally, 'air fryer' is term used to describe a countertop convection oven.

    • 1 month ago

      Not exactly the same. Convection ovens only use the fans to circulate the air (usually low to med speed) once in a while to maintain temps through the oven since normal ovens are hotter up top. Air fryers have the fans running full blast the entire time to ensure the exterior surface of the ingredient can crisp up. Usually cook times and temps needed are adjusted somewhat similar to below
      >Normal oven: 400F, 60 min
      >Convection oven: 350-375F, 45-50 min
      >Air fry: 325-350F, 30-40 min
      Those early style air fry basket things are just stupid though. Much better to get a unit that's similar in design to a countertop toaster oven. And if you really have money, go an additional step up with some like the Anova which can also do sous vide and steam (for bread mostly)

        Yes, its a lot better than the Tefal I had. I have a Speedi and it is great for me alone. The only things I dislike are small things about the tray. If your meat is to big you need to put the leg vertical on top of the carbs and veggies. And the handle on tray is too small. If you have kids you can probably not make enough fries in one go. Maybe with steam airfrying it works.

    Cuisinart TOA-60 is one of the best, because it does just about everything well.

    Air Frying is not "just a convection oven. It has more to do with the proximity of the food to the heating elements, and the particular heating elements used.

    >Baking
    Even heating from top AND bottom elements; with or without fan. Fan is great when baking pizzas and you want a nice even finish on the toppings. No fan better when baking bread or cakes.

    >Broil
    Broiling is like upside-down grilling. You set the thermostat to max. It yields awesome results with meats in terms of them being tender without being overcooked because it heats indirectly. Only outer two top elements activate and can be used with or without fan.

    >Air Fry
    Uses all top heating elements and fan to heat food evenly across the pan. Usually set to 400 deg F to sear food. Consistent awesome results with fries, nuggets, reheating pizza, hot dogs, etc.

    I do not use a microwave. Microwaves literally alter the chemical structure of the foods it cooks by messing bonds at a molecular level.

    The difference between an air fryer and a convection oven is that an air fryer has a nonstick basin that you just dump your slop into and press a button. That makes it so much more convenient than an oven where you actually have to prep your food in a dish. Using a basin instead of a rack is as big a difference as adding little wheels to your luggage.

        If you put a slice of cheese on top of something the air that circulates gets under it and blows it to the top. I have had that with old Dutch cheese. The same that happens when you heat up a tortilla.

      People forget to mention the taste, air frying makes chicken taste like KFC or better, try to get that flavor with an oven or something else.
      But everything else is like that.
      Pictured here are my favorite sausages ever, these bacon flavored ones are perfect for hot dogs, and you are supposed to roast them, but the best flavor you're gonna get is by air frying them, no oven or pan or even smoking them or doing them burger meat style will get you this flavor. Crispy outside, tender inside.

        My air fryer has been one of my best buying decisions of recent times. They promised so many things, like, there was some hidden flavor in my food, and by using the flavor it would squeeze it out of it, causing everything to taste more intensely.
        It was true.
        It reminded me of monosodium glutamate, which has a similar effect, except air fryer flavors are unique in that there's no way to get them in any other way.
        Like roasting gives a specific flavor.
        Or boiling gives a specific flavor.
        Air frying gives a specific flavor.
        Heck, it does not replace cooking in a pan, but after cooking in a pan I just get the already made food that is still hot into the air fryer so it gets that flavor, and it's still the best way to melt cheese.
        Now, afterwards I bought two more of different brands because the one I had was too small. And to my surprise those ones tasted awful. Like, imagine that's a line between well cooked food, and burnt food, these ones would make it taste 20% burnt. Put it less time in there? Still would taste 10% burnt...
        So now I have two unused fryers that are useless, so brand and size may be important, try a small one, and cook the food before putting it inside, and food ill taste much better (home made KFC tastes better than actual KFC, etc.)

        These are completely different flavors. Also, you picked the wrong guy, they sell 16 different brands of soda apple flavors in my area, I could easily tell them apart, so cooking on oven or air fryer would be as easy as telling the difference between something toasted and something roasted...

        Why? We're talking about the final product here, if frying it on a pan before putting it on the air fryer gives you the best outcome, why wouldn't you do it?
        You have the stove, the pan, and the air fryer, just use them all instead of trying to replace one appliance with another.

    Here in Italy, where food is sacred and fried food is taken in high regard ,especially in Southern regions, air fryers became quite a fad... Who pushed this fad in our country? I don't know. But they're fricking useless. They are essentially a miniaturized convection oven in which you put ingredients covered with oil. The only positive side is that is small and quite efficient,and probably reaches cooking temperatures quite fast.
    But everyone has a convection oven , and microwave combo ovens in Italy... So it's more than a novelty item.
    After many tries in frying, the oldest method is also the best:just use a simple small cooking pot , fill it with 1 liter of olive oil at 180 Celsius ,checking the temp.with a thermometer and dip your shrimps or fries or whatever... Perfect results
