Air Fryer


Recommended Posts

Have tried frozen wings and frozen fries.  Both sucked.  Not sure if it’s the product, the process or what.  Going to try again with fresh wings.  Otherwise it’s going in the dumpster.

Youre doing something wrong or your equipment is bad

Another good thing about an air fryer is reheating or “recrisping” take out food. Jo picked up some Chinese Food for New aYears Eve, including a Poo Poo platter with assorted battered chicken fingers, egg rolls, and fried shrimp, and chicken wings. A few minutes in the air fryer and they come back to life from soggyness to crispness.

My wife bought one for me (us) and each of my three daughters on sale last Christmas.  We use it for morning hash brown and frozen appetizers.  It does a great job but get 'em while they're hot, the apps are no good cold, must dry them out or something.  My daughters tell me seasoned veggies (broccoli / cauliflower) are crispy and delicious.

I did another pan of wings tonite. Thawed, pat them dry, salt and pepper and then 30 mins at 400 degrees. As crispy as can be. Shook them in hoisin sauce. They were just awesome.

Do you have a combo air fryer/ pressure cooker? You sure you have it set on air fry?
I shouldve taken a pic of my wings tonite. A work of art. As good as Ive ever gotten in a restaurant. Seriously

I saved a section of venison backstrap. I’m gonna dry rub it and wrap it in bacon and air fry it some evening this week. Will report back with what I hope are mouth watering photos.

That’s too bad. I haven’t tried wings yet. But I did touch up some rubbery Chinese chicken wings the other day and a few minutes in air fryer crisped them back up. I also air fried some chicken thighs as posted with photo earlier. I had to watch them towards the end so they didn’t crisp up too much. I’ll have to buy some wings and see what results I get. What model Air Fryer do you have?

Just wondering, are you packing the the fryer or doing small batches with enough room between pieces to let the air really circulate? If packed in tight that is probably the cause. Just a thought.

Tried both.  It’s a two basket unit. So I put one layer on one side and tossed a bunch in the other side.  
 

I did pull the baskets out a few times and give them a good shake.  
 

both baskets were same end result

Poor Emily, I bought her a Ninja last Christmas and she's burned everything she put in it.  I blame it on her life motto; "we don't need no stinkin' directions!"...SelbyLowndes
