Whats the difference in this and using a convection toaster oven?

rated:
I only just recently got myself an air fryer, but from what I can tell of it versus a convection oven:

  • smaller, so less counter-top footprint, but also smaller batches of food
  • cooks faster, but since it's smaller you may need to do multiple batches
  • easier to clean up, as the food sits in a basket that's on top of a drip pan; you just take them out and rinse and maybe scrub them out
  • tends to make food a bit crispier than the convection oven

These things were expensive when they first came out a few years ago like the microwaves.  Now, they are very affordable at $50 or so.  Get it if you can.

I've been using my Avalon Bay Air Fryer purchased from Amazon for $109 since Feb. 2016.  It's a work horse in my household and have replaced my convection oven since.  No oil needed and food comes out warm/hot and much crispier than the convection/toaster oven.  Takes less energy than an conventional oven since I only cook for 2.  It's a cheaper and healthier way of cooking.

My 1.2lb home made roast pork from the airfryer just for dinner today.

Its much easier to clean; everything else is essentially the same. Although it states you won't need additional oil to brown food, the reality of the device is that it uses any "oil" or fat that the food already has to brown it similar to what you would get with a regular convection toaster oven.

So in other words, a batch of fries already with some oil on them will crisp up similar to a batch of fries that you could similarly crisp up in the oven. Same with anything else. Look at the exhaustive reviews on Amazon for people talking about the pros and cons of it further if you want more detailed information. I personally find this device excellent for left-overs or "pre-cooked" frozen food you would buy at the supermarket. It shouldn't totally replace a toaster oven though, as they still can be used to brown toast, bake and broil foods which this device can not do effectively.

If sold by WalMart, you would be taxed.  This is sold by a third party SharpPrices, that's why you're not taxed.  Very good price tho.

looks good in 3.5L, is better with a large capacity.

If It's a fryier why everybody compares it with a convection oven ? I use convection oven for baking and roasting only.  I'm confused.

The only food I fry is fish - I dip the fish fillets in a flour/water mixture and drop them in the pan with the boiling oil . Will this "hot air fryer" give me the same results like frying fish in a pan ?

  It's not a convection oven and it's not quite a fryer. People who say, "just use your convection oven", obviously have never used one. I've used mine pretty well. It works best (for me) on frozen, precoated foods: French fries, onion rings, cheese sticks, jalapeno poppers, pretzel bites. I plan on keeping hot and fresh super bowl snacks coming. However, following directions and youtube videos, I have also successfully made my own hand cut fries and fried chicken that was quite good - nicely dried out (fat rendered), crispy and tasty. I also find it very useful for resurrecting rolls that have passed their date - just 30 seconds in the air fryer and it's like they're fresh out of the oven. Also great for reheating pizza due to high temp. I like mine a lot - and I used a convection oven frequently in the past. You can coat fresh foods and air fry them - just look on youtube first. A can of PAM is useful here, too. Like mine enough that I ordered 3 for family. I have a 2.5 quart Bella. On the foods I mentioned, I find it far superior to a convection oven.
