Default Well...Got My First Air Fryer

Nuwave 6 quart. I must say a different cooking experience with a lot of opportunities. Bought different meats just to try it out. Really want to try fresh cut fries.

I put two 8 oz. ribeyes in it cooked to medium, those darned things would melt in your mouth.

Got some fresh green beans to try next.

Happy days

If you drizzle a little oil on your fries it helps them brown. You don’t have to, but it helps.

The thing I use mine for most is reheating Publix wings.

Cherry Turnovers at Sams Club in the airfryer are the bomb. 350 for 3-4 min...amazing.

I received an air fryer for Christmas and haven’t used it yet. I would like to try a steak or chicken in my air fryer. Does anyone have any tips for cooking steak or chicken?

I find it best to reheat fried foods or 'fry' frozen fried foods. It is essentially just a convection oven with a wire basket.

Naked wings are great try baking powder 12 to 24 hours to draw out the moisture. Then season after knocking off excess powder, bake 14 minutes shake basket at 7 minutes. Toss in your wet sauce and back in for 5 minutes. Hard to beat

Received the air fryer lid that works with our IP yesterday and fries came out perfect. No oil needed as they already had some on them in the bag. Looking forward to trying fresh ones as well as sweet potato fries.

That is what I use it for, fries come out better than the oven, Someone said to drizzle some oil on them, I use the spray oil.
My wife buys all the 'gadgets' on tv, when she first got it I rolled my eyes, great, another gadget that will get used twice and stuck in the cabinet.
She did good with this one, we use it all the time. It is great if you have kids, quick meal of fish sticks or chicken nuggets and fries in about 15 minutes.

Love the fries. I use red potatoes and coat them with olive oil. Cook ~ 15 - 20 minutes tossing occasionally.

Nice looking unit and wish you luck with it. One of my first jobs was working at a local Steakhouse and this was the seasoning they used.
Ground white pepper, garlic salt, and meat tenderizer, all mixed with equal amounts.

Use dry seasoning of your choice and apply a moderate amount on both sides of 2 good cuts of 3/4" cut ribeyes. Let sit for 1 hour absorbing the ingredients and getting up to room temp.

My highest temp setting is 400 degrees so that it was for 15 minutes depending on thickness and desired temps. Flip once half way through.

Also these are great for breakfast. Can't screw these up on the frozen fries setting for 15 minutes.

I use our air fryer almost every day.
wings
fries, both fresh and frozen
pork tenderloin - seasoned and ready in 22-23 minutes
Brussel sprouts
panko coated fish
chicken thighs
whole chicken
bacon wrapped scallops

an air fryer is basically a small convection oven with high speed fan

We went out to eat a few weeks back to a place that had the best hand cut fries. I never do but I decided to bring home the left over fries (they give you a ton). Tossed them in the AF the next day all soggy and man they come out great.

I also found those cook up great with a little spray oil shot on them.

Steaks in the Air Fryer:

Two 16 oz. ribeyes about 1 inch thick:



Dry rubbed with seasoning shown above and let sit one hour, then into the fryer. Raining like crap outside.



On highest temp setting of 400 degrees for 15 minutes, flipped once halfway.



Delicious. Bride wanted no pink so back in with hers 5 more minutes.




Yeah I slurped a little....

Pick up a bag or frozen breaded okra, cook til crispy and salt to taste. More addictive and tasty than potato chips....and I don’t like okra.
