    Picked this up mainly to cook filets/steaks inside during our winter months - couldn't be happier with this product. We've since started using it for more items/foods other than steaks and it does great. It does take some quick research to understand cooking temp/time conversions over what's listed on food directions etc. A quick google search or question to Alexa though almost always generates a quick and spot on answer. 7oz Filet example attached - right steak put in 3 min ahead of left steak - then cooked for 8 min followed by a single flip then another 5 min. One steak perfectly med and the other med rare

    I really love this air fryer! I bought my mom this same brand air fryer in a larger size for Christmas, I wanted a smaller for my small family of 3, I figured it would be great for quick easy meals that are also healthy for my toddler, I think it has been great in doing that. It has detailed easy instructions, a guide to let you know what temperature and amount of time for different styles of food as well, I do add about less than 10 minutes to whatever recommended time is in the guide. Easy clean up, I soak it in water and clean it all and clean it gently shortly after cooking.

    I've only used my air fryer a few times so far, but I've made "fried" shrimp AND tandoori chicken so far in it. I explained it to my husband as "convection with cooking spray," because that's effectively how an air fryer works. This particular model is easy to use and clean, and highly customizable. As a mother to small children, as well, I genuinely appreciate the safety features that prevent my curious toddler from getting horrendously burned. It's fun to learn how to use, and our next falafel project will entail a lot less guilt!

    I bought the Emerald, because I was craving French fries, and it had good reviews. I especially wanted fries without the greasy mess of frying and the related clean up! The first time I used the Emerald, I had fries that neared perfection. With a little subsequent tweaking of the cook time, and I get consistently delicious fries in just a few minutes, No muss, no fuss! Also, clean up is simply a few swipes with a soft damp cloth. Though I probably will try other items later, as long as it continues to make great fries, I am very happy with it!

    I received this two weeks ago and have literally used it for something every day. (I know the definition of literal) Potatoes multiple ways, beet chips, squash, zucs, peppers, onion stir fries, eggplant parm, and beautiful, crisp chicken. My cast iron is jealous and feels neglected. I take food seriously and I highly recommend this unit if cooking for 1 or 2 people. If I was feeding more I'd just get a bigger version.

    We use it almost daily from cooking grilled chicken for salads to the grans(ages 8-16) using it for their fries and chicken tenders . Even use it to cook our filet’ mignon and fresh veggies just use a light coat of spray oil to brown & alway wash so as to not create an oil build up & the cleaning is as great as the cooking , Simple .

    The air fryer is nice and big and has held up. My family does not particularly like the way food tastes, but I am hoping its just because I haven't figured out all of the tricks to making sure the food is fully cooked without undercooking it. It is definitely healthier than frying. It did emit a chemical smell the first few times it was used.

    The fryer is best to fry fish, chicken and pork. It required minimum or no oil but the food taste great. Easy to clean. Digital display is great. Tried potato fries and did not taste that great. I need to do more optimization for potato fries. The food prepared in this fryer including potato taste also great with batter. Nothing negative to say so far. Great product for the price.

    This was my first experience with air fryers. This model was on sale so i thought, why not. I was mildly surprised. Wings and french fries are great with limited clean up. Much healthier than the hot grease and so much nicer to clean up with just a damp cloth. Still experimenting but very happy with my purchase

    This product exceeded our expectations and we couldn’t be happier! All digital and very easy to use. Made with total non-stick material made cleanup even easier! Preped my food the same way I would when using my deep fryer and it turned out practically the same as the deep fryer. The built-in timer stops the cooking too!

    This works perfect for 1-3 people. I was a little worried because I’ve heard that food does not cook all the way through, but it’s just a matter of choosing the right time and stirring the food mid-way. We love making fries/potatoes in it. I’ll never buy frozen fries again!

    I was offered the air fryer at a discount and decided to give it a try. Basically, it's an oven that allows the air to circulate. It doesn't do the same thing as having the food fried in oil. But it does heat things up without oil. I have tried a number of things and it seems to work.

    Works, great, I use it almost every day. It's basically a supercharged convection toaster oven. Heating coil with a fan. But it works. I've even cooked chicken breasts and steak in it with good results, The best thing it does is fries and tater tots. YUM!

    So far I’ve only used it a few times. Cleaned it before using. First time the factory smell kind of made the food taste funny but it got better. Easy clean up and easy to use. Quicker than the over and crispier too for fries and tater tots. Glad I got it

    Next time I get one, I'll go a little bigger. will fit 4-6 chicken legs, maybe 2-3 legs and 1-2 breasts at once. Don't stack food like fries on top of each other, only cover bottom, otherwise they won't all cook.

    I wanted to see what are the rave was about air fryer so I decided to buy one. The design and functionality are great, but the taste of the food is not the same as a traditional deep oil fryer. Item was returned; sticking with the unhealthy deep oil fryer.

    I was have tried the latestest and greatest gadget before and came away extremely disappointed. The infrared turkey fryer comes to mind. Skepticism went out the window with my jest batch of wings. Didn’t know what were doing and they still came out amazing!

    Made a perfect gift for two! They love it! We personally like to put lemon juice on our chicken along with herbs and spices but it holds the moisture really well (if u don’t over cook it )

    This is by far the best purchase for our cooking devices. Takes a couple of times to figure the best way to cook different meats. Follow the directions and utilize the web for excellent recipes.
