Like most everyone, I care about what I put into my body, and I know enough about nutrition science to understand that french fries should not be a diet staple. But even with my health in mind, I subscribe to the Chrissy Teigen philosophy of eating—if I’m going to be counting calories or limiting entire food groups, I’m going to make sure every single thing I eat is as delicious as possible.
Even though our wings came from The Cherry Lounge in Jamestown, New York, the best wings, in my opinion are from Guppy’s in Bemus Point, NY. Guppy’s was owned by my Aunt Sally and Uncle Mike and their were always the best. Crispy and spicy, with just the perfect kiss of butter. They’ve since sold the restaurant, but I was back a few summers ago and I have to say that the wings are still amazing.
Meanwhile, separate dough into 5 biscuits; separate each biscuit into 2 layers. Press each into 4-inch round. Spoon 1 heaping tablespoonful egg mixture onto center of each round. Top with one piece of the cheese. Gently fold edges up and over filling; pinch to seal. In small bowl, beat remaining egg and water. Brush biscuits on all sides with egg wash.

Okay, got my air fryer last night, opened it up, set it up and tried it for breakfast this morning. The included recipe book has instructions for soft and hard boiled eggs (first page). Granted it was for "large" eggs, and I used "extra large" eggs, but followed the directions (ten minutes at 300 degrees), and the eggs were barely cooked. Put them back in and cooked for four more minutes at 350 degrees, still not cooked enough to peel (ruined a second egg trying to peel it). Put them back in for a third time, three more minutes at 300 degrees. Now I am down to four eggs (started with six). Two were cooked enough to peel and say they were "soft boiled" (very soft boiled) eggs. The other two fell apart trying to peel them because they were under cooked. Next batch of six eggs were cooked at 300 degrees for SEVENTEEN minutes (seven more minutes than the directions said), and they got brown spots on the shell, but they were indeed "hard boiled" eggs (barely). My opinion is if one can't even cook a hard boiled egg according to the directions, I don't even want to TRY anything else! The machine is nice, easy to remove the two cooking racks, and the drip tray on the bottom (all coated with non stick surfaces), but it is much smaller than I expected. It does fit on the kitchen counter nicely, and stays cool on the outside while cooking, and it looks nice if one were to leave it out all the time. This machine is NOT FOR ME, and will be returned. I can't give it a good rating, and I would never recommend it to anyone else. I hope this helps! ...Read More Read Less

It’s important for us to present every product we show you in a fair and unbiased manner, so you can get the best air fryer for you. After all, that’s why we’re here — we want to be the reason you buy a product that you use every day for years!
When I was younger(don’t want to mention ages here), we use to go to BJ’s in Fredonia, NY, about 45 miles south of Buffalo. Those were the best wings ever! They offered $.10 wings and $.50 Molsons beer on Wednesday. I would always order 100 wings, play foosball while waiting and my share of beer. We would eat half the wings and take the rest home to enjoy later. The difference in their wings was they baked them after applying the sauce. Oh so good! Not the dripping wet wings you see everywhere now.
Similar to ribs, chicken wings can become part of your weeknight dinner possibilities thanks to their quick cooking time in the air fryer (only 20 minutes!). And when rubbed with baking powder and spices, they become super-duper crispy; just the thing for tossing with a flavorful sauce and serving over rice, all of which you’re able to do during the miraculously short time in which they're air-frying.
There’s no denying it—the air fryer is awesome. It gives you crispy, salty French fries in a matter of minutes with half the fat and calories you’d expect in a traditional restaurant order or McDonald’s run. And, there’s no comprising on the taste. In fact, you can even add in your own herbs and spices and use out-of-the-box ingredients to shake things up.
The air circulation is system is further divided into two different systems. The first system controls the temperature of the fryer together with internal pressure and called as the exhaust system. This is used to address the hot air in the fryer and also uses a filtering option before finally transferring the air. The next system is a cooling system. In Air Fryer, to control the internal temperature, a cooling fan is used to circulate fresh air from top to bottom. This is why the air fryer never becomes hot even while cooking.

In addition to delivering crispy delights, your air fryer makes a pretty awesome countertop pizza oven. Whole-wheat pitas make a great fiber-forward crust, baking up nice and crisp. Opt for roma tomatoes; their smaller size makes them a good fit for these personal pizzas. Swap out toppings to customize your pizzas; since these cook in just 5 minutes, you can prep the next one while the first is baking.


I got the Culinary’s Edge Air Fryer as a Christmas gift. I believe that it is good and sounds and looks eerily similar to the GoWise fryer with the warping drawer of the Power Fryer XL, that gets hot and won’t go back in until it cools. It has no accessories and you need to stop it and flip over the food for even browning, but there is where the problem comes in, because the drawer won’t go back in or even register right away. It should beep or turn on when the drawer is placed back in. Unfortunately it becomes a tug of war during that time. It’s really annoying and adds more cooking time, because you have to wait for it to behave.
Cooking results ranged from acceptable to mediocre. When we cooked 28 ounces of frozen french fries at 350 degrees Fahrenheit in the Philips HD9641/96 for 25 minutes, most turned out evenly cooked, but a handful of fries were still underdone. However, the Philips air fryer fared better than others we tested, such as the GoWISE USA GW22621 and Avalon Bay Digital Air Fryer 220SS, which burned the fries closest to the heating element and left the ones on the bottom of the basket completely raw. The hand-cut fries we cooked in the Philips HD9641/96 using ½ tablespoon of oil were evenly browned, but they had a dried-out, dehydrated texture. Some of the fish sticks and breaded chicken tenders were soggy in places and not as crispy as we had hoped, even after we increased the cooking time. And though the pork chops we cooked in the Philips HD9641/96 had nice color around the edges, the centers were pale and unappetizing. The edges of the meat were browned, but the surface was almost completely pale, and the result didn’t hold a candle to the glistening, evenly browned pork chop you can get from cooking in a skillet. Is a device that cooks food so poorly worth $250? Nope, it isn’t.
Companies that sell air fryers claim that they are a more healthful option because they use less oil than traditional deep fryers, which is true. But since air fryers are a form of convection baking, these companies are comparing apples to oranges. To demonstrate, we tried cooking traditional buttermilk-battered chicken—which would normally be shallow or deep fried—in an air fryer, and the results were disastrous. The chicken was cooked through, but sections of the batter were overcooked, while other areas had globs of raw wet flour. The lesson here is that battered foods need to be submerged (or partially submerged and flipped) in oil for even browning and texture. The mediocre food we prepared in an air fryer only left us pining for real honest-to-goodness fried food made the old-fashioned way.
This was delivered yesterday... already love It. Wanted something that was quick and this is it. So far made potato skins and pizza rolls (from frozen) spayed a bit of Pam.. and cut some foil to cover just the bottom. Came out perfect and crispy. The skins cheeses was bubbly and the skin crisp and inside steaming (10 minutes. Pizza rolls 9 minutes flipping half way , crispy and brown. Can't wait to try with chicken wings and fries tomorrow.
When deciding whether or not to buy an air fryer, it’s important to ask yourself why you want one. Most foodies will tell you that air fryers can’t really replicate the taste or texture of typically fried food -- but they can still deliver a nice, crisp exterior and moist interior without the need for all that oil. How? They basically circulate hot air all around the food inside of them, so they’re able to cook food at a fraction of the time that a typical oven could.
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?

You get many extras with this unit, including a baking pan and muffin cups so you can make desserts in addition to snacks and meats. There are also additional racks to facilitate roasting and grilling. Since the Brio is much more compact than your oven, and most toaster ovens, it can do all of these tasks very quickly, albeit in limited quantities.


Someone told me an excellent suggestion - use Reynolds PARCHMENT PAPER directly under the food to be cooked. If not at your grocer, you can get it on Amazon. No mess to be cleaned up in the fryer; just toss the parchment paper. After cutting off the necessary size of the Reynolds parchment paper, perforate it by poking about a dozen slits/holes with tip of a sharp knife to cook the food evenly. Or you can get 200 9" diameter circular perforated parchment papers for a reasonable price also on Amazon. Philips - take note.
This recipes uses one of my very favourite seasonings in the world : Old Bay Seasoning. It’s a very East Coast spice mix ( I was SO happy to have it in New Jersey when we visited) but this Alberta girl has been using it for years already. Mike and I will simply sprinkle Old Bay onto our chicken drumsticks and roast them thusly, with nothing else on it. You could easily do the same with the chicken drumsticks in the Phillips Airfryer as well, if you want a gluten-free option!
Traditional meat-filled empanadas can be a double-whammy of fat and calories due to ground beef and a trip to the deep fryer. This air fryer twist on the traditional handheld snack is even healthier thanks to the addition of mushrooms, which lighten the filling while keeping it nice and moist. Packs these air fryer empanadas for a tailgate, or serve them over greens for a hearty supper. 

The racks are great because you can cook on up to 5 racks at a time. Foods that are battered stick no matter what you do. The manufacturers suggest you spray racks with olive oil, canola oil, PAM, etc. I have done that and they still stick. If you just cook without batter, it still sticks. I recently cooked some French Bread Pizza and I couldn't get it to cook without overcooking it. Definitely do not use the box's time, it'll be burnt to a crisp. I wouldn't suggest buying this item. Also, if you want to cook rotisserie chicken, you can only use a 4 lb chicken. This is also a small unit that I bought, so it limits the size of chickens, etc.
Needless to say, the price range is quite wide. You should plan your budget and stick to it when you go ahead and purchase an air frying appliance. In some cases, spending more on an could be wiser, as usually higher priced units come with a handful of accessories and other bonuses such as longer warranties. The price you are willing to pay for such a kitchen appliance depends on you, but in any case, make sure that you are making a reasonable and long-term investment.

Our own testing agrees with other users experience.  We first put in frozen chips and set it to what was recommended in the cookbook.  They came out well cooked and crispy.  Next we threw in some chicken drumsticks – 4 in total – and found the top and bottom to be more brown than the sides.  Note that we were testing the larger 5 L model, but the results can be applied to the smaller capacity version as well.


Want a large-sized versatile model to help cook delicious food and at the same time reduce the caloric intake of you and your family members? The Power Air Fryer XL 3.4 QT is just that. It uses a cyclonic air technology which reduces the amount of oil for cooking by 80%. This means you will be lowering your calorie intake by 80% while eating the same delicious meals you have always enjoyed eating.

Of course, there's nothing wrong with treating yourself every now and then, in moderation. The issue with these fatty food options is that eating them too frequently can sometimes lead to health issues. And even if that's not the case, the guilt we feel after giving in to the temptation of a greasy meal was enough to send us searching for an alternative.

Even if you are satisfied with the air fryer’s facsimile of fried flavor and texture, and you’re eager to eat as many almost-fried foods as possible, most air fryers can’t give you consistent results. While they tend to excel at cooking frozen foods, many models struggle to cook fresh veggies, potatoes and meat evenly without leaving burnt or raw spots. A smaller model of our top pick for air fryers, the Philips Airfryer XXL, produced dry, unevenly cooked french fries that couldn’t compare to their deep-fried counterparts.
