Does anyone have one and do you recommend? I'm following a slimming world lady on TikTok and she uses it all the time. I'm on my own so am looking for a small one

What kind of things do you cook and do you still need oil?

I have one I cook bacon chips and chicken in it

Do they need any fat in order to fry?

I've had the Wilkos own brand one for 2 years and it's bloody great. Don't need any oil although sometimes I use a bit of oil spray. I use it for homemade chips, roast potatoes, cooking some things I'd do in the oven but I want done quicker like Linda Mccartney sausages as it does them in 5 mins rather than 20.

We have a Ninja Foodie which has an air fryer function. It makes crispy potatoes without oil but, of course, they taste different because there is no oil.

We bought it as I wanted a slow cooker too and it was the way to buy both, in one.

We use it a lot for potatoes and usually add a little oil and seasonings for flavours
