I bought one of these. The interface is garbage, but the rest of the product is actually pretty good. You can’t just turn it on and go, you have to turn it on, select the manual mode, select time, set time, select temperature, set temperature, then hit go. I’ve used more friendly air fryers, but it does the job.
I have an air fryer / oven and it’s actually been a great investment simply because it’s way easier to clean than sticking one’s head into a conventional oven while wielding a can of toxic foam cleaner. Not that I keep either oven spotless, but I use the mini-oven more because I won’t be smelling all the stuff that would burn up for the umpteenth time in the bottom of the big one. Maybe I’ll clean that one today. I doubt it though. I’ll probably just keep not-using it in favor of the little one.
I do like frozen pizza. Since one won’t fit, I score them with a knife and break them in half. Actually, I break off a third of each half, too, and eat a third of a pizza at a time. Half would fit in the oven, but not in me. I’m getting old.
One (mildly) amusing thing about my little oven is it is billed as an Air Fryer Toaster Oven but does not have a toast preset. I had to figure out on my own how long it takes to bake toast. OK, that’s not even mildly amusing. It’s just bad design. Yours has the upper hand in that regard.
All this is to say, I think you guys talked down the idea of purchasing a little air fryer oven too much, tongue-in-cheek as things are around here. They do take up some space and lord knows what I would do if mine had come with all those cupboard-hogging attachments, but the ovens are a nice amenity. Anyone who got this far should probably buy one. Maybe you could even get a little rebate by selling any unneeded attachments for scrap metal.
How does the size compare? I understand that one of the value props of an air fryer vs a good convection oven is that there is less volume to heat up. That said, I still would like to have the max volume (think - best in class) possible to fry larger items.
What would my very mediocre air fryer experts here recommend?
