My son recently became obsessed with fish sticks; living in Texas, I've learned you do not turn the oven on in the summer (the end). I've always heard good things about air fryers and faced with the prospect of microwaving fish all summer (BLECH)... I bit.
The Tidylife Air Fryer has been way more than I ever expected. We have found a zillion uses for this dreamboat: from roasted veggies to quesadilla-for-one to elevated grocery store frozen appetizers to the best wings I've ever made at home (big shout out to Stay Snatched for the 5 + 5 + 12 minute approach to get that perfect crisp and juicy wing).
It has become such a staple of our family cooking that we actually packed it for our recent beach vacation. Our friends at the beach house rental instantly fell in love.
The whole term "air frying" is a bit of misnomer; it seems to me like a high powered mini convection oven, but damn, those Ore-Ida waffle fries come out Chick-fil-A caliber.
It cleans up in the sink super fast with the "cage thing" separating from the "catcher tray thingamajig." My only gripe is that is is BIG (and kinda' ugly). It takes up a lot of valuable counter space and resembles a Star Wars knockoff spaceship. I just hide ours on the floor of the pantry for easy access almost daily.
