Do you... air fry?

    I finally upgraded my basket style air fryer that was falling apart to a ninja "air oven" with room for multiple racks and multi level cooking. I've had a hard time with the cooking temp learning curve because 400F used to be too high for any non-frozen food and I would only use it otherwise for the last 10 minutes of wings to get them crispy. This one goes up to 450 and I've had poor luck getting browning at 350 so I think I have to get an old temp+50 degree correction factor in my mind.

    I'm very happy with the capacity and the fact that I can put it on the dehydrate setting at 85 degrees and cover bread dough with a damp dish towel and it makes an awesome, warm, humid proofing box. This way I can use my real oven for other things while bread is bulk fermenting.

    I'm using my oven type unit as an oven and convection oven far more than an air fryer thus far. The sear plate is nice too. It's a good microwave replacement because it's far more capable and yields better results in most cases.

    I'm going to have to try air frying more things though. Wings are drying out on a rack now. I bought some pickles for fried pickles. Maybe after that I'll do some fries.

    Not sure how I missed this posting but good read. We got a Corosi with the deep bin for Christmas. Like some of you we have limited space so couldn't justify the oven type. Been using it for the usual frozen stuff like wings, chicken tenders, fries, tots, etc. I buy some prepared meals from HEB that are labeled to be cooked in a 400* oven. Gotta agree with MBMorgan and others that 400* in the air fryer is way too hot for most things. Frozen tots and stuff like that do fine but fish or anything with cheese does much better at lower temps. I guess it's a learning curve like anything else. Well worth the $99 I spent on the thing !!!

    Remember that these devices are little convection ovens. 400 is way too hot. I've done wings at 360 for 20 minutes with a turn at the 10 minutes to be great. I also missed them with veggie oil when they went into the fryer. The key is to check often during the cook.

    There is definitely a learning curve. I'm keeping notes as I go along and it has helped.

    I have wings defrosting now for my first try at air-fried wings. I have definitely found that checking the food ahead of time is the way to go to avoid overcooking.

    MBMorgan thank you for these words of wisdom. We just tried our new air fryer last night following their instructions (400 for 30min) and the wings came out fried, as in fried to death...Not burned, but very close to chicken jerky on the bone...
