Of course nothing can beat real deep frying, but it's so unhealthy. This really is the next best thing. Taste is great. Some don't look as great, like we did jalapeno poppers. They still looked kind of pale, didn't get that nice fried golden brown, but they DID taste good.
I absolutely loved my air fryer. After I got it from Costco it easily became the most used appliance in my home, however, after just about 5 months, it has stopped working properly. We have to keep trying to get the basket just right (sometimes unsuccessfully)in order to get it to turn on. It is very frustrating.
Works perfect and looks ultra modern. It is very easy to clean as well, like a nonstick pan. Highly recommend this For anyone looking for an air fryer.
