The timer is a sore point as it only goes up to 30 minutes and it must be noted that if you pull your food out during cooking, it will continue ticking on. It’s a bit annoying at first but easily fixed if you pre-emptively set the time with this action already planned for. This is another common issue prevalent in all analog air fryers and is resolved if you opt for the digital model.

The air fryer is right on the coattails of the Instant Pot in terms of popularity with home cooks as an appliance that can “do it all.” So, what exactly is an air fryer? It’s essentially a compact convection oven that cooks your food at very high temperatures while circulating the dry air around with a built-in fan. It’s claim to fame is that it drastically reduces the amount of oil used during frying to achieve similarly crispy results. Given that these appliances can be quite pricey, I decided to test one out and see what all the hype was about. I tested with two variations of “fried chicken”— breaded and unbreaded. Both chicken variations were cooked in the air fryer and in a conventional convection oven. I wanted to find out if that hefty price tag was worthwhile, or if you should just stick to the oven.
The egg-shaped Black + Decker 2L Purifry is not all that much smaller in size than other air fryers but has a much smaller basket. B + D only recommends that you cook a half pound of fries or one burger at a time. While it gives good results, it seems like if you’re dedicating so much counter space to an appliance, you should be able to cook enough food for four at once. Plus, the basket didn’t glide in and out easily. Like many, it doesn’t have digital controls so it’s hard to set precisely. But our biggest complaint is that the numbers are so small that we literally needed to use a magnifying glass to set the temperature. Finish available in black and white.
As a congenitally blind 65-year old cook, I’ve used all sorts of deep-fat fryers, and even pan fry. However, being a double widower, with no one to impress and cook for, I very rarely deep fry because of the setup and cleanup time. The 9220-28 or TFal seem like good candidates for me. I’ll probably use the timer on my Talking Magic Chef microwave, and can’t use digital beasties sans speech output, so analog is better than good. However, wondering which of the two might have more easily markable dial? Usually either notch outer edge of dial, or if nothing to aim notches at, mark the dials with loc-dots or highmark. Suggestions please?
In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook sausage in oil 2 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to crumble, until no longer pink; using slotted spoon, transfer to medium bowl. Reduce heat to medium. Add beaten eggs, salt and pepper to drippings in skillet; cook until eggs are thickened but still moist, stirring frequently. Stir eggs into sausage in bowl. Cool 5 minutes.
I bought this in September and finally used it last week. First off, it is very big so you will need ample storage space to hide it away when you are not using it. My first use of this product was to “Fry“ french fries. The fries came out crisp and delicious with no greasy feel. Sure, you can bake fries in the oven but I’ve never had them come out so crisp from an oven.
Sure, sometimes you want a fryer with all the bells and whistles, but sometimes you just need something that’ll do what it says on the package. If you’re just looking for something that’ll fry the foods you want to be fried, oil free and with no hassle, look no further than the Bella for your best air fryer. Why is that? Well, just look at the features:
All of that changed when I bit the bullet and purchased my air fryer. I’d seen air fryers touted on YouTube for several years, but I took it as a passing fad, like many (most) “unusual” kitchen gadgets. I was also skeptical—how could this little Wall-E looking machine recreate the texture of fried food, with hardly any oil, without the splatter war-wounds to show for it?
