I like the concept of less oil. However, one of the things my husband wants to cook is fried chicken. We have heard that the air fryers don't do floured batters or other kind of batters.

In addition, I have done baked potatoes, which were not frozen, and they came out crisp like they were done in the oven. We just put a little oil on the potatoes, poked holes in them, and let them cook for 40 minutes.

We time things with our iPhones or timer and don't specifically use the one on the machine. We keep the temperature on high (380) degrees) so there is nothing to adjust.
