Air Fryers

I am curious to know if anyone has an air fryer and if you like ii? Also do you take it with you when camping?
Thanks

I had not heard of those before. I went to Google to find out what they are. Found an interesting review:

http://thesweethome.com/reviews/best-air-fryer/

Interesting that the article concludes by not recommending any of them. So, I hope you will keep us all updated on what you conclude.

I could not find anything on power consumption, but would expect this to only work when you are plugged into external power.

Yes we do, and yes we take it. Our's is a Phillips, we've have it about 9 months, and it's fantastic....there are several cookbooks available.

We're from Alabama, and for food to be prepared properly, it should be deep fried......the air fryer is a lot more healthy, and in most cases if the breading is prepared with the right seasonings, it's nearly impossible to tell the difference...

Enjoy!

Space is extremely limited in an Airstream Interstate, so I'd like to find a good one in the 1-liter to 1.5-liter capacity range. I have a 3.5-liter one at home, but it's way too big. It doesn't even fit in a home kitchen cabinet, let alone an Airstream cabinet. I have to store it on a closet shelf when it's not in use.

Last time I used mine camping the flames from the camp fire melted it.

I have been researching them and yes they do act like a convection oven. However, the many reviews that I have read say the food taste better but yet not the full flavor of a deep fryer. What I like about them is I can take with us traveling and will not have all of the mess or the odor of a deep fryer. In fact Have not used my deep fryer in years. Right now I am leaning towards the Phillips depending on the price I can purchase it.

there are several cookbooks available. I would certainly like to know the ones you recommend.

Just a quick follow up on my quest for and air fryer. I have not yet made a decision however even with the mix reviews I am leaning towards purchasing one. First because I like kitchen gadgets, secondly I like fried foods and this will get me close to that without smelling up my house and also it is healthier and finally because I use when we camp. As to kitchen gadgets the only one i do not really like is the Instant Pot for some reason I just have a tough time getting the results I want.

We have one and it stays at home. For camping we have a copper non stick screen basket that sits on a non stick tray. We got it at Camping world. In the oven it works much like an air fryer. It also makes fantastic bacon and the tray does double duty as a baking sheet. Stuff that goes in the trailer must be multi purpose to qualify for inclusion. For example the pot part of my corn popper doubles as a pasta pot. Single purpose items must be essential, like my coffee works, to be included.

We have a Phillips air fryer and it is great. It rapidly cooks steaks, veggies, French fries, etc with no or very little oil, and does not heat up the kitchen like oven or stove top. It also is pretty big and heavy, and hard to see where it would work really well with limited storage space of our airstream. We have not tried taking camping as we are brand new here, and just suspect it will be too big to take on any long travels

I did go ahead and bought the Philips XL Air Fryer and used it for the first time last night to make french fries. I really like the way they came out and was as good or better then one can get in a restaurant. I used three potatoes and two tablespoons of olive oil. Took about 30 minutes at 360 and the best part no order smell in the house.
Although it is big it will come with us when we travel for a week or more as I always have place for a cooking tool.

Although I have not taken the Air fryer on a trip yet it will definitely come with s to Florida. I have found it to be excellent for shrimp, chicken and potatoes. I like it so much more the the IP which I will now give to my son. It is not that the IP is a bad cooking tool it is because it just not fit my style of cooking. I like to play with the tastes etc when I cook.
I will probably purchase a second AF and am now looking at the new Breville Smart oven air if the price is right and I have room on my counter. If anyone has one I would like to know their thoughts on how it works, especially the dehydrator and AF

Thanks

Hi,

Is it save to use the Air Fryer in the Airstream? Do I need to worry about blowing any fuse?

Thanks,
Vivian

With 30 amp service a portable electric oven running with the A/C or Heat pump on means you are right on the edge. If the weather is decent, run a second very heavy duty extension cord from the pedestal's 20 amp plug to a picnic table and use your air fryer there. Keeps the Airstream from smelling of cooking odors for days, no grease from bacon, etc.

Anything that turns electricity into heat uses a lot of your available power - the three heaviest are the coach's air conditioner, refrigerator on electric and water heater on electric. Toasters, irons, induction burners follow closely.

Alde equipped Airstreams not included in this post.
