Amazing new way to cook
As someone with a penchant for fried foods, I knew I should try out an alternative way of cooking. The La Gourmet Air Fryer provides delicious, healthier results. Most of all, it is super easy to throw meal together and have dinner on the table fast. The process is so simple and the results so tasty. My family and I are loving this healthy habit!
The apparatus is a large machine with a big pull-out drawer (see hand in picture for size). The drawer has a mesh tray that the food sits on while any liquid drips through to the bottom. The tray is metal and therefore likely dishwasher safe. The drawer can be quickly washed out by hand. I really appreciate the easy clean up! It's important to note that when you push the drawer in, you have to push really hard (I had to brace the machine with my other hand) until it clicks otherwise the fryer won't turn on. All you do is set the temperature and time on the two big dials. The instruction book (which also has easy set up instructions) gives cook time suggestions, but I think some of it is trial and error. In general, I've found that things take longer to cook than I expect. But it's easy to turn the timer and just continue for another 5 minutes. The longer you cook, the crispier things get! Adjusting is easy. You just pull the drawer out to auto-stop, and the timer will finish anyway.
One of my favorite features about the air fryer is how many things you can make. It does come with a beautiful recipe booklet, but we're vegan so most of these didn't interest me. However, I already have a list of about 20 dishes I tried/want to try from marinated tofu (it was a huge success on a notoriously hard-to-cook food – see photo), to crispy chickpeas, to buffalo cauliflower, to faux mozzarella sticks (see photo)… you can even make desserts in the air fryer.
This air fryer has been a great addition to our kitchen. I love that it's so easy to put together a meal that I know will be delicious and healthy. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]Andrea
Wow! Healthier foods made easy.
This air fryer is great! In very little time you can make hot crispy fries and other fried items without all that oil. I made burgers and tator tots in it last night. The tots came out perfectly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. I had made the burgers first and left just a little bit of the burger grease in it for the tots but I don't think I needed it. The tots were fried in about 8 minutes compared to using the stove or oven. It is very easy to use, set the temperature, set the time and add your food to the trivet or the baking pan. This comes with an instruction book letting you know how long to cook your foods and also a recipe book giving you some great ideas on what to fry or bake. I can't wait to make homemade onion rings, one of my husband's fav foods. This is one appliance that I will be using a lot. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]LoriR
Fast, simple, and efficient
I never realized how many things were possible to make in an air fryer. This was the first time I tried cinnamon biscuits and they turned out amazing. Chicken and steak also cook up fast and stay juicy and moist. I would like if it was digital, but that doesn't affect the functions and quality. I am very satisfied.
