As I mentioned in a recent post, I received two Air Fryers for Christmas. I am in No Way complaining about that. This was an opportunity to contrast and compare something that I wanted, but had not put a lot of thought into.
Nuwave Air Fryer
was pinned to my Pinterest Wish List
and my Mama made sure I would find it under the Christmas tree.
It is large and complex just the way I expected. I was very excited when I opened it. LB was not as excited. His argument was that we already have a convection/toaster oven that will produce the same results. In addition, another appliance will take up space and clutter my kitchen in a way that I will eventually not appreciate. He did have a good point. Minimal clutter is of utmost importance.
My son and daughter-in-law also gave me an air fryer. It was the smaller of the two and they were pretty sure that I would keep the larger one. After YouTube reviewing, my decision was ultimately based on the size of the appliance.
I kept the smaller one.
Here is the
Dash Air Fryer
in a nifty little demo:
My first objective was to see how well this little device could cook…
I am not going to complain about the taste of these wings. They were just as crispy as fried, but not greasy at all. It takes about 20 minutes to fry 4 to 5 wings (depending on the size of the wings).
I was very pleased. LB thought they were good too, although he still questioned whether or not the air fryer necessary (we have a TOASTER OVEN after all).
Because I wanted to settle this, I decided to have a contest between the toaster oven and the Dash Air Fryer.
although the toaster oven poppers didn’t have as much time to cool as the air fryer poppers did.
Jalapeño Poppers are best right out of the oven! In fairness, we decided that it was most likely the brand of popper that made the whole event not nearly as exciting as it could have been.
In summary, I like my air fryer, and LB likes it because I like it.
Thank you for taking time out of your day to stop by my blog.
