Should I get an air fryer? If so, which one?

Thinking about getting an air fryer.
Is it worth the money? I'm thinking I couldn't do wedges, roast veg etc in it!
If I do get one, should I invest in a more expensive one?

I've moved house and have a really awful old oven here so have been surviving with a combi microwave and a portable induction hob.
I've been thinking of getting an air fryer for ages and bought a Ninja Foodi MAX Health Grill and Air Fryer about three weeks ago when I saw an Amazon warehouse deal. It's got a temperature probe and has a decent capacity, enough for a 1.8kg spatchcock chicken.
It works really well, particularly for scampi which my grandchildren love. You can roast chicken and potatoes at the same time, the probe is great for that and for steak. I'm actually thinking I might just have one oven when we get the kitchen done, and since I hardly use the combi microwave at the moment I'll probably just get a tiny ordinary microwave.
It is big but not smokey or noisy, I wouldn't be without it now.
