  2. I agree with the list. You’re asking for trouble if you cook any of those foods on the list. Having a messy Air Fryer is an understatement.

    10/10 puns πŸ˜‚

  4. People need to take personal responsibility for their life and health.
    The general over all health of people has declined the last few decades.
    Even children today have signs of artery disease. Fast foods and sugary drinks have long term consequences.
    There is an obesity epidemic today where over 60% of the population is overweight or obese.
    What is common today and “NORMAL” is not healthy. The average person today is not healthy and is taking medications.
    Heart attacks were once only common in people over 65. Today people in their 40 are having heart attacks.
    Add more plants and vegetables to your diet and less junk and overly processed foods. Being thin is a sign of good health. Being over weight or obese is a sign of bad health. Poor diet, lack of exercise and obesity are contributing to high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and cancer.

    Wrong on the grilled cheese. I cook them all of the time, and the cheese never seeps into the drain pan. Just don’t allow the cheese to extend past the bread. Duh. Also, line the drain pan with foil, and cleanup is easy. Duh.

    The first step is not to have an air fryer with the wire mesh type insert. You need one with a non-stick sturdier one that can go in the dishwasher. That will solve 90% of the concerns here. Never have issues with grilled cheese.

  7. Air frier was such a waste of money!

    A Walter White product?

  9. OK so frozen battered foods are OK? So how about if you take that fresh onion ring batter and onions, coat the onions, freeze said coated onions, then cook them in the air fryer? Will that work? All you need to do is pre-freeze any battered foods?

  10. Regarding Batter:

    You could cook batter foods.
    As long is it is pre cook frozen foods or anything that the batter is already cooked.
