Are they really that good?

Been thinking of getting one for a while.

Advantages/disadvantages?

My wife got one a couple years ago.

We swear by it.

Last night the wife air fried honey soy chicken wings. It took half the time then using the conventional method.

We have cooked steak and lamb with it, after trail and error it cooks perfect steaks. We have roasted veges and pies.

Only two disadvantages I can think of

It's another appliance in the kitchen. If you have a small kitchen it might take up too much space. 

Lack of cooking space. So dinner for two or three is perfect. If you have guests around. you will have to cook a few batches which can be annoying.

My advice is to buy the bigger air fryer. the small ones can only fit so much.

Cheers guys re the air fryer advice.

I think I'll take the plunge. Before my parents moved into a nursing home earlier this year, they had one. Mum used to do really great roast chicken in it.

another advantage is it frees up more space in the oven/microwave/stove as well. 

if you run out of ideas on what to cook. there is a facebook group dedicated to air frying shenanigans.

Or just youtube recipes. we haven't tried baking yet.

Yep, all gone now.

But the best thing about not being from Yorkshire is, because no-one is used to it, the highway shuts, which means school shuts, which means a holiday for everyone. Enough for the snow fights and snowmen and everything, without all the brown slush that lasts for days and ruins your life.

Thank god for that headache I felt coming on at 5:30 this morning....

 

ALso.... "reminds me of summer in england"....

:golecapproves:

:lol:

No you see, in Yorkshire it is a competition to see who had the most hardship to get to work..

"5miles you say...well I had to walk 10 miles over snow drifts and carry the wife on me back!" I know this sounds lie the Monty Python thing, but it really is like this.:D Those that call in saying they cannot make it are put down pretty quick :D

I know, I catch myself working hard sometimes and reprimand myself and just give myself a few hours off. :(

Remember when I first came here and people starting clocking off at like 3:45 - 4 on a Friday and I was like 'where the **** you going ya lazy chunt',

I did raise that with some of them.

Most have actually never heard of it...as we know...until they're introduced to it at school here.

I'll show the 4 Corners program to the Yr12 kids, who will study The China Coin in Term 4 (which is set during the lead up to the Massacre).

Fire? ******* soft. :crazy:

 

WFMB: left the kids at their friends place last night in our old sydney hood. The dad is an old punk rock stalwart of some repute. On the way to pick up the kids this morning we walk past yesterdays wet cement and see our kids names inscribed in the footpath :lol:

 

Meanwhile I am at vivid in a line for ******* ice cream so I'll head over to the other thread. ....

I got out of Circular Quay at about 4.30.

It was pandemonium getting AWAY from the Quay... I can't imagine how bad it gets after dark!!

Wall to wall people around the Quay all afternoon.

 

'Orrible!!
