Please recommend me your air fryers, for a family of 2 adults and 2 children - I am looking to be able to cook things in it instead of the oven

Thanks

@TankFlyBoss everything you’d cook in an oven and then some ! Most successful/life changing has been a full roast dinner! Other than the occasional pizza I’ve not used my oven since I got it a few months ago.

Instant Pot Vortex. It's fab and can fit a whole roast chicken!

I've got a ninja - it's great but I wish I got the double basket one.

Me too, only had it a week but I love it.

I've not graduated beyond freezer food, part baked bread pizza and some cubed potatoes but I love it.

oh we did some Berry Crocker packet buns that were lovely!

We have Cosori one, 5.5ltr, it’s very good and so easy to clean.

@JudgeRindersMinder I roast carrots, parsnips, the chicken and also have stuffing and Yorkshire puddings- can you get that all in in one go??

Ninja Foodi Max Pro, not used oven or grill since I got this six months ago!
Can roast joint, bake, grill, airfry and dehydrate.
Fits in a pizza - as good as our outdoor wood fired pizza oven.

I've got the Ninja AF400 and love it. I love that it has 2 drawers.

we've used it mainly for freezer food but the fajitas from the booklet that came with it were brilliant so I plan to try more stuff.

I bought it to stop the DSs using the whole oven to heat up small stuff for lunch.

It was great for heating up an almond croissant in 2 minutes 😂

We have a ninja one, did chicken drumsticks and thighs in it tonight with chunky chips and it was brilliant. Moist chicken, crispy skin and lovely crispy chips.

another one here for the ninja maxi grill, i don't even use my oven anymore except for baking cakes . i have an oven liner at the bottom, saves me cleaning the parts.

they also run promotions all the time so no need to pay full price. Amazon warehouse also stock brand new opened boxed ones which come with the warranty, literally new with a damaged box.

I've got a Ninja, the AG301. It's a bit small for 2 adults and 3 children. Great for roast potatoes and we've made toad in the hole and pies in it too. Can't get a whole chicken in without spatchcocking it, but it cooked very nicely once I'd done that.
