Which brand of air fryer would you recommend?

Is it worth it, having an air fryer in the house? Thank you.

My wife and I have the Instant Vortex Pro, and we love it. The rotating basket is great for things like fries or onion rings, and it also comes with removable tray shelves for things that need to be stationary like bacon or chicken wings.

The price on different brands is staggering. Good Q

It may depend upon which country you live.

I see no use for it. It’s just a passing fad in my eyes. Similar to a Hot Pot a few years ago or the microwave 40 years ago.
I doubt there will be a day when there are just air-fryers and no stove in the kitchen.
Make room for it in that cabinet you never go to.

^^The pitch I got was no need for oil to fry so…healthier alternative?

Two friends have gotten the Ninja brand, and use them all the time and love them.

@Forever_Free I know only one person who doesn’t have and regularly use a microwave. Not quite the “passing fad”.

@mazingerz88 I can eat healthy and clean without an air fryer also

@canidmajor Now you know two. I have not owned a microwave in over 20 years. It is a glorified popcorn maker, leftover warmer. I personally do not like the taste of food that comes out of it.

Some reading for you.
Excerpt: A bigger factor behind the decline in sales of microwaves is likely that Americans just aren’t using them as much anymore. A shift in eating habits—which favors freshness and quality over speed and convenience—has left a growing number of microwaves dormant on kitchen counters.
“Microwaves have sort of had their day,” says John Owen, a senior industry analyst at Mintel
