"When it comes to air frying, our top pick toaster oven, the Cuisinart Chef’s Convection Toaster Oven TOB-260N1, produced better results than any of the air fryers we’ve tested since 2017, and it also has more accessories. The Cuisinart produced crispier, more evenly cooked food, and it easily accommodates much more than a typical pod-shaped air fryer does—including up to nine slices of toast, a 6-pound chicken, a 9-inch cake, or a 13-inch pizza."
No, I'm saying air fryers are VASTLY inferior to convection ovens.Cuisinart makes an airfryer that looks like a convection oven but with a mesh basket built in. Mom liked hers so much she gifted out 3. Our new oven has one built in, as the smug guy who took your questions too seriously said, air fryers are basically convection ovens BUT the mesh basket is important. So convection oven + after market mesh would work. Also, I used to have a halogen circular cooker that weren't called air fryers then but I recall it being aweosme for nuggets, fries, etc. Secura is the brand I had, no idea why I remember that.
A toaster oven can't really replace an airfryer. The idea of the airfryer/actifry (they are basically same thing right?) is that it somehow infuses the oil into the food. You put a small amount of oil in it and the paddle and heater work together to basically simulate deep frying without actually dunking it in oil. At least that's my theory, I just know they work well for what they do. They are a rather specific appliance though, they don't replace a toaster oven and a toaster oven does not replace it.
Clever marketing on their part to call it an "air fryer oven", really.Literally just bought a Ninja Foodi Digital Air Fryer Oven a few minutes ago. It has a cool design that stands upright when you're not using it. Makes it easy to clean and takes less space. https://www.ninjakitchen.com/exclusive-offer/SP101WBKT/ninja-foodi-digital-air-fry-oven/
Yeah, I don't doubt that it's a good appliance, just wondering how long until other convection toaster ovens are relabeled as air fryer ovensSeems to work though- lots of YouTube home reviews and everyone's said they love it so far. Makes crispy wings, fries, pizza, toast, bagels, you name it.
It has already happened.Yeah, I don't doubt that it's a good appliance, just wondering how long until other convection toaster ovens are relabeled as air fryer ovens
Wait, so how many do you have at the moment?i bought a convection oven from an informercial
and it worked so well that i bought another for backup
and then the first one broke and i realized i can't live without it, so i bought a spare on ebay
and then another one because toastmaster apparently stopped making them
