Default Air Fryers....watta great invention!

Maybe Ive been living in a cave, but.... while I have heard of them, I never even gave a thought to buying one. Then I saw "Mr. Food" on my local news doing a recipe using one and he raved about them. So, while at my local wally world doing some shopping I decided to get one. Pretty much middle of the road cost wise, but what a great investment!

I imagine it would be good for a family, but as a single guy, not having to heat up a whole oven for just one meal is a blessing in itself. But the amount of time to cook something is on an average less than 15 minutes and it comes out perfect!

I just posted in the Sabrett thread about cooking up some Itialian sausage. Took only 10 minutes, no stink and no heating up the whole kitchen. Also so easy to clean!

You guys proly already know all this...but Im too busy working on projects to discover easy cooking methods....

Neighbors burned half their house down using one of those. At least that's what I believe she was using.

Mississippi usually takes a decade or more to catch up with the real world. Two decades ago people starting using microwaves there.

Mayyyybe if it had never been cleaned and it somehow started a grease fire from all the grease buildup on the heating element, but I doubt it. These things smoke like crazy before being dangerous, and considering you aren't cooking things for enough time where you'd leave your house and leave it unattended, I can't imagine a scenario where it would've caused an unattended fire.
Only other explanation is power cord failure cause they chained some dodgy power strips or something like that which wouldn't be exclusive to air fryer but the necessary factor is leaving it unattended.

Nope I was standing outside when they fire dept threw whatever it was out the front door smoldering still. I'm 99% sure it was an airless fryer. Why not 100%? Because I wasn't using it and the lady was in a panic so I didn't push the issue. It was about 4 years ago.
Guess they did not have an extinguisher or she didn't know where it was(home owners sister caused the fire).

Why would you continue to push a hearsay comment when you have no real idea what it was or how it caught on fire? Perhaps it was an air fryer but perhaps the lady was a pig and never cleaned it? I would think that with your limited knowledge of how, why or what happened, your post is irrelevant to this discussion.

Our AF gets more use than any other kitchen appliance. Plus it has a rotisserie.

Nonsense! THIS is how you troll, and respond the right way. Funny dig, funny response, everyone goes away laughing and in a good mood, nobody's panties left in a bunch (I mean, unless they want them to be, NTTAWWT, of course).

Some of you could learn from this thread.
