That's a great buy. I use my Instant Pot on a regular basis, including making yogurt.

Between my Instant Pot and Air Fryer, I'm all set!!

I've been tempted to get an air fryer for a while now, especially because my husband would eat hot wings every day if he could. If we could do hot wings in the air fryer, that would be amazing!

What sort of things do you make in it? I'm seeing recipes for french fries and potato chips, but I'm not sure what other things you could use it for.

Wait, are there people who wouldn't eat hot wings everyday??? Can you make them in an air fryer?

I make fried chicken in my air fryer all the time - I soak in butter milk, then dip in seasoned flour (probably no more than 1 -2 tablespoons per piece, spray lightly with canola oil cooking spray and put in the air fryer. Really can't tell the difference. You could easily do wings.

Keep on losing!

I cook in mine almost every day... chicken (whole, wings, cordon blue, nuggets), pork (roasts, chops), beef (steaks, roasts). There are dozens of Facebook pages, but I usually go to the Weigh****chers Air Fryer Recipes (as well as their instant Pot Recipes)

If you do get one, I recommend the Power Air Fryer XL... I'm sure you've seen the commercials! I had a Nuwave which had a wire mesh basket the was very hard to clean. My new one has an easy clean basket..100% easier to use. Oh, and get the large size (5.3 I think).

Love the IP and the Air Fryer.... but lately the air fryer is being used a lot more often.

Edited to add: I've also made zucchini and summer squash chips, French fries and blooming wonion... been using bread crumbs but I just bought some pork rinds to try instead. I've also put my egg/bacon/cheese breakfast and rolled it into half of one of Joseph's flat breads to toast... so good.

I want to try empanadas and various egg-roll type recipes... to make for Maura and Joe to take to work.... rather than pop tarts and pizza.

In the latest edition of Consumer Reports they gave it a good review. I have a friend who loves hers and I will buy one, but hopefully Amazon will have it on sale again, because I can't buy it right now.
