Default Air fryer heads up

My dad got us one of these for Christmas a couple years ago. My wife is always VERY skeptical about new appliances cluttering up her kitchen but this one has won us over. One of our recent discoveries with it has been "battered" ling cod chunks. Oh my. Oh MY! My wife avoids gluten (migraine trigger) so not only are we air-frying it but it's GF as well. The essence of the recipe is, the fish is coated in seasoned mayo thinned a bit by water, then rolled in GF bread crumbs. The mayo provides some fat to get things sizzling.

Cleanup is really easy by any measure but especially compared to cleaning up after deep frying.

If you are trying to get away from the mess and calories of deep frying, I suggest giving one of these goofy looking things a try.

That fish looks mighty tasty. Like you said deep fat frying has its cleanup for sure. My wife is not one to fry fish or seafood so I usually to that in the shop using a big wok on the Camp Chef stove. It works great but I have the wok to clean up dump the oil and put everything back so I have a shop again. I don't mind dumping the oil as I save it for brush burning. So now I may need to check out what Black Friday deals there are on these units. If anyone sees a deal please post.

BiMart has the Gowise model on sale for $49.99 regularly $79.99, a BF thing. Good deal, we are and have been looking at one for some time just haven't pulled the trigger. I like the good review JeffO gave on the brand. They range from very expensive to a decent price. Just not interested in buying a cheapo, my wife would be the first to say 'you get what you pay for'. I am debating between elk hunting, friends kid has a youth hunt, or black Friday for the Grand Kids and family. Leaning towards BF we have until December 31st to get the elk.

Good looking fish jeffo.

I love the air fryer. I make about 5-10lbs of fried rockfish at a time in a regular fryer, but keep it just short of the golden brown finish. I freeze and then vacuum pack in bundles and take them out for fish sticks/tacos and reheat with the air fryer for quick meals like work lunch. Nice crunchy coating reheated with air fryer.

Will have to try your mayo coating on the next fresh catch.

Cajun fish fry mix on frozen bluefin steaks is killer there also. And just shake the basket out is my normal cleaning. This meal was a microwaved veggie/tater and air fried bft steak, 10 minutes tops.

Wow- there's some awesome cooks on this site.

My wife is in charge of awesome cookery, though I do make a mean venison burger.

I never in a million years would've bought one of these wacky looking "air fryer" widgets. But we love it! Same with the Instant Pot my bro gave me the next Xmas, but that's a different thread.

We love our air fryer too. Cook all sorts of "fried" foods in it. I haven't used a drop of oil for any of them. I'm still amazed every time I use it.

I work out of town six months out of the year doing maintenance on a USCG ship. During that time I'm holed up in the Homewood Suites Seattle. I cook in the micro kitchen and the Air Fryer and Instantpot are life savers. With those two devices it's possible to cook very nice meals quickly and easily. Air fryers cook a nice steak. Pressure cooker hard boiled eggs are fast and peel right every time. +1 for both gadgets.

I've cooked chicken wings, chicken legs, chicken breasts, steaks, hard boiled eggs, rock fish, salmon, muffins, banana bread and garlic bread in my air fryer. It works great.

Baby Back ribs 30 minutes in the Insta-pot are the best but need to finished for color with some BBQ sauce on the grill. I would bet putting them into the air fryer would do the same.

I've been watching video's on the Nija Foodi, very impressed. Pressure cooker and air fryer in the same appliance. I went out Christmas shopping and ended up at Kohl's. Got $60 Kohl's cash, a 25% off coupon and a $10 off if you spend over $50 I think I can get one for around $65. I'll wrap it up and put from Santa on it. But that will be tough because I am looking forward to using it.

Since some other guys brought it up the wife bought an instant pot a month ago. I was kinda upset her spending money on something we don’t really need right now. But we use it all the time. It makes wonderful whole chicken with a bonus of nummy broth. Pork roasts and rice. Hard boiled eggs that guarantee peel which with our fresh eggs from our chickens don’t always do that. Even cooked a cheesecake in it. As a bonus it’s quick too!

I’ve had the ninja foodi for about a year and love it. Best thing ever invented, we cook just about everything in it. Hard boiled eggs in 4 minutes, whole chicken in about 25 min. I also purchased at kohl’s.

I have the same air fryer as the OP. The only complaint or improvement I wish it had was a window to see the food cook. My friend has one with a window and it prevents you from needing to open the fryer to see how done the food is. It's a small thing in reality.

Same here.
Whenever I find a good deal on the IQF wings, I stock the freezer up.


Frozen wings turn out great.
Put them in the fryer.
Set temp to 380.
Timer to 30 minutes.
Turn on and then just flip them every 5 minutes or so.
I sprinkle them on both sides with poultry seasoning after they thaw (at the first 5 minute flip).
When you get to 10 minutes left, turn up to 400.


Sometimes I will finish them with good old Franks wing sauce for the buffalo wing taste.

For kitchen appliances and tools, I usually check out what "America's Test Kitchen" or Cooks Country" recommends. They test them pretty thoroughly. I don't always agree with their recommendations though. Their choice for vacuum sealer was sub-par in my opinion, and I don't like their choice for chef's knife. Other than those they seems pretty solid

Wings and baby back ribs are excellent. Also hard boiled eggs come out perfect, easy to peal.

Did the seasoned mayo then panko on some fresh lingcod and black rockfish last night. Really good. Played around with a few different tries and liked a light dusting of Cajun fish fry, then dipped in mayo egg lemon juice mixture, then panko.

And yes the air fryer works on razors, just get it hot first and play with timing so you don't turn the clams into rubber.

We picked a "Ninja Foodi" up in Costco on Saturday... they have them for $180.

Supposedly an air fryer + steamer + pressure cooker + slow cooker all in one. Going to try making albacore fish n chips in it tonight.

You rat bastids are going to sell me an air fryer on my own damn air fryer thread!

VERY interested in hearing results/opinions.... we used the Instant Pot tonight to make some spicy "pulled venison'" and it worked great. Since I have an air fryer and an instant pot I *think* I can imagine combining both in one appliance. Brave new world, lol.

Whole chicken in the Foodi, 22 minutes in the pressure cooker and 13 in the fryer. Came out very good. Caught the wife picking at the chicken after she had eaten. Easy clean up.

I wouldn't say it fell apart like if you crock potted it or pan fried it for hours. But that was my first try and there will be more tries.

May need to make a separate thread just for the Foodi's, air fryers. Reviews of what you cooked and how it turned out.

Our first attempt at albacore fish-n-chips was mixed.

Since you can't really use a liquid batter, our plan was to lightly oil the fish, roll it in egg white, then roll it in flour then a final coat of panko then into the air fryer. Only we didn't have panko... I made our own with some toasted bread. It was good, with the fish nice and moist but it was missing the crunchy crust I was hoping for. I think it would have been a lot better with rice flour (crunchier) and real panko).

The potatoes were kind of meh... I don't think we used enough oil on them, so they came out more baked than fried/crispy.

I also made some fried brussel sprouts in it and they came out excellent. I put those in a bowl and added some olive oil, salt, and pepper then shook it all up for a few minutes to get everything nice and coated.

I've had good luck with wings in my Wally World Farberware. But sweet potato chips were a disaster -- although it could have partially been the fault of the recipe. You have to be very consistent about slice thickness in order not to burn half the batch.

Default Re: Air fryer heads up

I thought there should be a new thread on 'General' for recipes, how is it working and ideas. I said I would give an up date for my attempt with my new Ninja Foodi so here it is.
Last night was the first good test it was halibut and some potatoes.
First the potatoes were pre cooked from the night before. I took the bakers and cut them into pieces and placed in the air fryer. Set at 18 minutes at 400 degrees and checked at 12 minutes. They came out hard on the outside and rubbery on the inside. They didn't have any crispy texture and were not the golden brown of a good skillet fry. Disappointed.
Next I took the halibut and cut it into medium size pieces, breaded and placed in the air fryer. I put it at 390 degrees for 20 minutes. Checked periodically for a good crisp outside. It really never got there and so while waiting I must have over cooked. The fish came out dry and lacked any flavor. The outside was not the good crisp of a deep fryer oil bath. If you had health reasons so as not to be able to use oil this is a alternative. There were no big raves from my wife and mother but I didn't expect any after trying these myself. The big hit was the rib-eye barbecued steak.
My wife and I have discussed the pro's and con's of the air fryer. There is definitely a learning curve to this new appliance. There is going to be more time invested in this with cooking and learning. Hopefully over time the cost of it will be negotiated by the value of the product it delivers.
So lets get some more testimonials from other users(not just the foodi), recipes, do's and don'ts, what works best. I am eager to use mine more and more for the ease of clean-up, time cooking and hopefully come good cooking.

With the red air fryer I showed in the pic up top,

- ling cod fillet, skinless and deboned, cut into 2"X1" chunks;

- dredge in mayo that has a shot of sriracha, a jolt of fresh lime juice, a bit of garlic salt, and salt and pepper;

- roll in bread crumbs; we use Trader Joe's rice crumbs because gluten is a migraine trigger for my wife;

- air fry on 400 until browning occurs.

The opposite of dry and stringy. Moist, juicy, and every bite better than the one before.

VERY interested in hearing results/opinions.... we used the Instant Pot tonight to make some spicy "pulled venison'" and it worked great. Since I have an air fryer and an instant pot I *think* I can imagine combining both in one appliance. Brave new world, lol.

Like you we have both now plus a big slow cooker. Before I buy another pantry gadget I'm holding off for the Ninja Air Fryer, slow cooker, pressure cooker, food processor and vacuum packer all in one model soon to be unveiled.

Mrs got an air fryer a couple of weeks ago and I've been on guinea pig duty, sampling experiments almost daily. Buffalo Wings were amazing. But the panko crusted onion rings stuffed with guacamole were really really good. No grease. No guilt. Right?

Willie can you throw up some info, recipe,time cooking,temp. You know the stuff. I think I messed up on the panko crusted halibut. It cooks dry and leaving it in to long didn't help. Someone may have had better success.

It crucial to place the onion slices on a cookie sheet/ wax paper. Fill slices with your favorite guacamole and freeze for about an hour. This will allow you to to bread it with seasoned flour/ egg wash/ panko and keep the guac where it's supposed to be.
Set air fryer to 375
Rotate shelves at 10 and 20 minutes.
Flip. Finish in 3 or 4 more minutes when the crust appears to be at the appropriate crispness.
Let cool for a minute or 2 and enjoy!

That sounds really good ww. Kingkiller, try the fish breaded the way the op listed with mayo then bread crumbs or panko etc. I've done a couple batches and like an egg, mayo, lime juice blend and then roll in seasoned bread crumbs for fish. Worked good on razors but I think I like broiling the razors better as it's hotter/quicker that razors need.

Reheating previously made fish sticks, pizza, burritos, tamales, etc are great. I like making a traditional fried batch of fish and then freezing like fish sticks and reheating for quick lunch or fish tacos is great.

For things like store bought fries or spring rolls etc, spray a light coating of oil on them and it makes it good without the soaked in oil of deep frying.

Sad news for air fryers. I can tell when something has saturated the market and maybe more of fad than what we believe by simply going into Goodwill and checking the shelves. You know a few years back it was the Ronco rotisserie that was in every thrift store along with the one push egg sheller, one push and you had a hard boiled egg free of its shell. I even bought one of these for the wife. It certainly shelled the egg with one wack but also splattered the egg all over the place. One wack and it was headed for Goodwill. Well I hate to say it but yesterday while the wife was checking out Goodwill for goodies I wondered around and in two stores I found not one but several air fryers, two of which looked new and unused. I even found one of those Ninja units at Tillamook. So this might be a red flag for air fryers a fad or will it prevail.

Like my George Forman grill so goes my Ninja(maybe). But wait I think Quiet Riot has it right. Pre-breaded items should work great in the air fryer like tater tots that I love but in the deep fryer they really soak in the oils. French fries and all of the other things like that. After my first cook, deep fry, it is difficult to get the fish back to its original feel and taste. I seem to burn it when back in the fry pan so the air fryer maybe the ticket. I am heading to the kitchen to pressure cook some eggs to hard boiled status. From looking at the cook book I know there are many things that can be done with this gadget so I am not ready to give up on it just yet. We need more Mr. or Mrs. Mom's to throw ideas in.

Looks good. I think like anything there is a learning curve. We did french fries and they came out very good. We also did commercially prepared cod, calamari and oysters. The cod was good, the calamari not so good and the oysters horrible. We compared these to doing them in a wok in oil.

Mini corn dogs in the fryer. The kids loved them and they are one picky bunch of kids. Even the adults liked them.

Also pressure cooked hard boiled eggs came out great.

+1 for the unit.

One of the dishes we enjoy about once a month is Fried Chicken Thighs. Guilty pleasure. Crisp, delicious. Wouldn't change anything. Seriously, wonderful stuff. Great the next day too, cold out in the boat or wherever. So, when the Mrs asked if I thought we should try fried Chicken in the air fryer I said , He** NO! I don't care if it's unhealthy! It's perfect the way it is. I beg you.....don't bast#$dize the chicken!
My pleas fell on deaf ears. And I couldn't believe how fantastic it turned out. So once a month, Bastar*ized Chicken will be on our menu. Just a misting of coconut oil gave it all the crispness it needed. I might be going to Goodwill to pickup an extra air fryer . Or 2.

Ok, here goes.
Soak the boneless, skinless thighs in buttermilk for at least an hour. ( Optional)
Dredge thighs in seasoned flour, dip in egg wash, return to seasoned flour . Shake off excess. Spray both sides of each thigh with coconut oil.
Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees.
Rotate shelves at 10 min and flip thighs.
10 more min.
Done.
Insure that inside temp of thigh is at least 165. Ours came up to 180 and it seemed perfect. Enjoy!

With the Ninja we made the New Years hoppin-jon. Soaked black eyed peas over night then used the pressure cooker for 5 minutes then added ham and slow cooked. Great appliance and the beans came out very good.

All New Year’s Day bowl game food cooked in new Air Fryer. Kids devoured each item like they would out of the regular fryer.
It’s a keeper.
