I was skeptical, but so glad I purchased this air fryer. It is awesome for heating leftovers--I'm able to revive chicken strips and fries that would normally be too soggy. After I pop them in the air fryer for a few minutes they are magically more crispy than they were the first time. I've experimented with several foods-cookies, canned biscuits/crescent rolls, hot dogs, and of course the usual fried foods: fries, mozzarella sticks, sweet potato fries, etc. I've been pleasantly surprised.
Make no mistake, this unit is basic. It can get a little loud at times, but not bothersome to me. There are no extra buttons or fancy settings. There's just a temperature setting and an analog timer. But that's plenty for me. The cooking process is not exactly a science. I typically have to check several times to make sure the food is just right (not burnt, cooked thouroughly). It works great for the price!
