    ^ Own them in lime green. Love.

    Right now banana bread is baking in my first silicone baking pan. We shall see.



    I hope it's good because I always have to throw out those non stick baking dishes after some time, they get rusty.

    Wow! That's a lovely piece.

    Bumping this thread to ask if anyone here owns an air fryer, and do you like it? I have a small deep fryer (Fry Daddy), but I've only used it maybe twice because it requires so much oil. I don't mind the frying in the oil part, it's just that even for the small one I have you need about a whole bottle of oil as a minimum amount, and I don't want to have to deal with the clean-up and disposal of that much oil. SO, any thought on air fryers?

    Moongirl, I have a couple of friends that have an air fryer and they LOVE it. One made me chicken tenders and they would have been perfect but she kept them in a little bit too long. Another friend made meatballs and said they were delicious.

    Thanks, I was wondering if it would be worth the cost/counter space; I do cook things like French fries in a pan with oil, but it's kind of a pain as well. An air fryer seems like less clean up, and I might be more inclined to use it.

    Count me in as an air fryer lover too. It's awesome. I love making casseroles and baked pasta dishes in mine. Quiche too! Even though it's a "fryer" (in name only), you can make almost anything in them.

    Does the food from the air fryer come out crunchy? I never heard of it before, and have been thinking about buying a fryer. I agree with Moongirl, I donít want to deal with the clean up of the oil either. Plus, I hate the lingering smell of oil Iíve smelled in homes.

    I have an air fryer, I won it recently but I don't really get it. The reviews on that specific brand are bad, so maybe it's just the one I have that isn't worth anything.

    It really does come out crunch (from the basket). I'm the same way about oil. I love putting jalapeno poppers or diced potatoes in the main basket. Even frozen chicken wings. It does take some getting used to as it cooks a good bit faster than a regular oven and you have to adjust the amount of liquids and temperature for normal recipes. I read somewhere to convert recipes by reducing temperature and cooking time by 25%. Most of the time I can just rinse or wipe the basket or pan out and it's done. And the best part is no pre-heating because I'm impatient like that. There are some awesome websites out there with good recipes just for the air fryer. I like it because I usually just cook for me and it saves the hassle of using the big oven and I can make whatever size I want.

    I have this one. My mom got one for Christmas and raved about it. I think three of her coworkers got one and raved about it and then I broke down and got one too. The baking pan is a must.

    I'm considering this one from Wal-Mart.com that's on rollback for $79.99:



    It has 4 star and up reviews, is large capacity and not too expensive, plus it has a 12 month warranty. My only concern is a couple of reviews say the non-stick coating on their's has peeled off, but it seems to be if they don't clean it immediately and food stays stuck after a while.
