    Good eye SheilaAnn The cooking pic is a file photo to remind ya which model I have, the pic on the repair table was taken yesterday. 🍿🍻 Cleaning is not one of my strengths…..fixing is 😂

    This two years old? What have you only used it once? 🤪

    I’m sorry to report the air fry mode on my 2 year old Breville sounds like rocks in the fan….🙄
    I spend a few hours taking it apart and found the motor failure. The bearings are pressed in place on the armature frame mounts and held with a retainer. One had come loose and I could see no way to fix it. So I did what any shade tree tech would do, I ripped it out (see below in pic 😁). Put it all back together and we are back to quiet air frying (for now 😂)
    A bit bummed this happened at the two year mark…..

    I find the air fryer is my absolute fav way to do wings. I used to have the AF with the drawer, but it got greasy steam all over and didn't hold enough. I gave it away, and got the AF Instant Pot oven, don't use it much, but def for wings. I never cook them from frozen. I dry them off, fully thawed, put in bowl with a few little shakes of oil and whatever seasoning I want. Lately, I like a shake of avocado oil and a shake of sesame oil, then sprinkle with a mixture of garlic salt and ginger powd

    We bought an infomercial drawer-type from a regular store eons ago. Been using it ever since for frozen fries, frozen others, drums, wings, even fresh taters, etc. Now, I wondered if the oven-types were better (#$*@ those infomericals!). Went through two of them, returned both.

    Sticking to the little old drawer-type.

    You might try dusting them in baking POWDER before frying. Helps to crisp them up.

    tamidw I never cook from frozen. Slack out in the fridge. “Dry brine”. Season as you wish. Tiny spritz of oil. 400F on the super convection setting.

    I also use the broil setting a lot. Watch it, though, it works fast!

    I love love this machine! It gets more use than my regular oven.

    I used the airfryer basket in the air fryer slot and set at 400 degrees. I cooked for about 18 mins. They were the Foster Farms frozen party wings. They ended up dripping down onto the bottom as I didn't put anything under them and didn't get crispy.

    I never did wings. how did you prep wings and cook setting, temp, and time may help. Also, which basket did you use and I assume inserted on the “air fry” tray slot?

    I realize I'm very likely stating the obvious, but non-crispy wings need higher heat and/or more time. We do them in ours and they come out fine, but as I recall it took a try or two to nail it.

    I just got the Breville like smokenoob and SheilaAnn have in this thread. I just did some frozen wings and they made a huge mess and weren’t very crispy. Any suggestions on how best to do wings? Figured this was best place for me to ask.

    Still deciding whether this appliance is a keeper or not. Convince me. 🤪

    I keep mine in a cabinet and forget I have it, but seeing the pics on this thread I may just put it up on the counter so I can use it more often.
