I'm thinking about getting one on BF...the question is what deal is the best?!!? I'm tempted to get the one from JC Penney...with the rebate but the kohls deal looks good.
The two most compelling posts on this thread are...
We've had a NuWave for 5 years now? Something like that - works GREAT! We got while we were in an apartment temporarily due to a house fire and didn't want to constantly set off the super sensitive smoke alarm - it cooks everything and air fries.
I've done turkeys, pizzas, most of the things mentioned on this thread - except for steak and pork chops ...now I'm in intrigued!
Mexican yumminess wrapped in a tortilla and brushed with oil fries up beautifully - then I transfer to a cake pan, cover with cheese and pop back in just long enough to melt the cheese.
I really HATE extra small appliances but this one is good enough that it wins a place on the pantry shelf! We did have an issue with the original dome cracking a couple of years ago - ordered replacement for $25 I think...totally worth it.
I have 2 on my counter. I started with a 3.6 (or there about) qt, decided that wasn't quite big enough so bought a 5.6. I use them all the time. They are like a convection oven, in that they are cooking with hot air. But the shape allows the air to flow around the food (or something like that). I "fry" chicken legs in it and they are better than my actual fried chicken legs. But I tend to overcook chicken legs because I'm so paranoid I won't get them done. I do french fries, tator tots, fish sticks, any of those frozen convenience foods. I've done a whole turkey breast (see picture), that came out awesome. But my favorite thing to cook in it is steak. Yes, steak. I do add about 3 minutes to the preset, because the preset is not quite done enough for me.
The trick to crispy is, you DO still need to use oil. Just spray coat what you're cooking though, it's not like dropping it in a vat of hot oil. And the excess will drip off, so it's still healthier than real frying, if that's your goal.
Searching the Black Friday page for Nuwave Air Fryer, I see these...
- NuWave 6-Quart Digital Air Fryer $99.99
- NuWave Digital Air Fryer Convection Toaster Oven w/ Temperature Probe $119.99
- NuWave 3-Quart Electric Air Fryer $79.99
Maybe Bopeep can tell us what fryer made that beautiful spread or AuntJamelle has an opinion on any of the BF deals?
With what I have read, I am leaning towards the NuWave 6-Quart Digital Air Fryer $99.99...
Most of the Pro reviews say the Philips Airfryer XXL 'knocks it out of the park', but that is a $300 appliance.
