Air Fryer: Anyone using one?

I have been seeing ads for Air Fryers on TV and was wondering a couple of things:

Do they actually work?
Is anyone using one in their RV?
What kind of amperage does it pull while it is on?

I don't want to get one and then find out it causes the air conditioner to stop working.

They look like this

Anyone have any experience with one?

In SC, we don't have to fry our air. It fries us. LOL

The Air Fryer was invented by Philips, it appears the Emeril one you linked to is an private label of the Philips product.

I happen to work for Philips, so at our national meetings we always have a "trade-show" area where all of our consumer products are displayed. So I have eaten quite a bit of food prepared I the air fryer; chicken, onion rings, fries, taquitos, etc. All are very good and taste the same as deep fried in oil. If you like fried food and cook it at home this is a great product for you.

As for power, the last specs I saw were 1400 watts -- which would be 11.5amps. That's a big draw and might affect your ability to run AC at the same time. Consider a hair dryer is typically 1675 amps for comparison.

We like and have been using the NuWave Oven for a couple of years.

We have one at home and use it quite a bit. Definitely preferred to microwaving any fried foods. Biggest drawback is the small basket but I bet you could load it up pretty full. Could work better on tater tots but otherwise it works as advertised. (And I'm skeptical by nature)

Haven't taken it camping, yet, but it wouldn't be a bad idea.

Our home convection microwave has this feature. We use it fairly often. It makes crispy food crispy. It definitely takes longer then just nuking it.

I ordered it...



Okay, I am a total victim of advertising,. I just ordered an Air Fryer, but not the one that is on the infomercials. They all pretty much lok the same, I bet they pretty much perform the same as well. I ordered this one (5 qt size)because the reviews of it from a number of sources were better than the one on TV.

I plan to use it both at home and on the road, supposing that it doesn't blow a fuse. It is a power hog for sure.

I will let you know how things come out!

Actifry

We have an actifry air cooker. I use it ALOT. It makes great wings, potatoes, french fries, etc. It will also cook fresh vegetables like cauliflower.

Can't cook a whole chicken in it tho...!
