Sure. However, it is literally a small convection oven. My main point is that if you have an oven with a fan, you already own an "air fryer". There isn't anything magical about the branding. You may need to spend more time heating, fiddling with distance, etc. But other than the size, it will be literally the same thing. (Perhaps minus issues with air flow. My anecdotal experience is that "air fryers" are more similar to eurotardia convection ovens and not USA#2 convection ovens.)

Great marketing tho. And I make wings in the oven all the time. Convection oven is great for them!

Get you an air fryer ObviouslyNotThremp, bet your wings will get better. And yes, fully aware itís just a tiny convection oven. Love that little bastard anywayÖsimilar to my feelings about you.

loving the back and forth in the previous several posts, really appreciating the food pics Mal, and i'm also solidly on the side of team air fryer.
yes, it's a convection oven, but the volume to push air through is much smaller than a typical US oven and the results are better, faster, and require less clean up.

But I have a mid-size convection oven already tho. Why do I need a small one? How can it even hold my giant tray of wangs? (I already fill my current roasting rack up, and it certainly isn't fitting into an air fryer.)

But serious Instapots and air fryers are mildly tilting probably because I didn't take an obvious thing, give it a catchy name and makes millions.

I mean, you canít do a huge tray of wangz in the air fryer, thatís big facts, but from frozen solid in 25 minutes I have bomb wings, and that helps get me up in the morning. It works for me as Iím pretty much only cooking for one. Iím not going to further question your methods NT right now.

I love my Instant Pot too, though lately all Iíve been using it for is to steam broccoli and make rice.

I generally take ~40min for a tray of fresh wings. Maybe I'm the weirdo. Difficult to find some things frozen in Eurotardia. Frozen to ready in 25min seems... insane. Are they precooked?

Multicookers are generally dope for rice (assuming you eat the same kind over and over forever, which is what basically everyone does), but sadly I'm more of a blanched veggie guy so I end up scalding myself with hot water every so often. Steamer functions are dope tho!

agree about the smaller capacity of an air fryer, but i can make a dozen in around 16 minutes straight from the fridge.

couldn't fit it all in the air fryer basket so did two batches. the first batch was skin side down at 380* for 10 minutes then flipped skin side up at 400* for 7 minutes. the skins were nice and crisp but the meat was over. while we demolished the first batch the second batch went for 8 minutes at 380* and 7 minutes at 400*. second batch turned out much better...skin was still very crisp and the meat was still juicy.

first pic is still in the basket right after cooking, second pic includes a drizzle of fire on the mountain hot wing sauce.

Yeah, straight from frozen, not precooked at all, got some going right now in fact. I havenít done any that havenít been frozen yet, going to have to mess with that at some point.

Thremp - we're really talking about two different things here. i've made those kenji wings and they're great, but we're talking about cooking a pound of very good wings in less than 20 minutes straight from the fridge (or freezer in Mal's case), not prepping the wings the day before and cooking them for ~40 minutes.

I'm currently almost too fat to fit in my clothes so I will not be consuming wings for the near future. Maybe an asian dry fry if times get desperate.

Making wings a day in advance is probably never happening for me. Certainly not anytime soon.
