I heard about hot air fryers from Cheap Lazy Vegan (no, I don't get out much). So I researched them (I little) and bought this small Gourmia one off eBay.
The recipe book that came with it was fairly worthless, but whaddya want f'nothin, a rubber biscuit?
ANYWAY, I took the booklet's advice and cooked stuff kind of the length and heat I would in a conventional whatever, and sometimes I got it right and sometimes I got it wrong. Fish was GREAT. Sweet potato fries were not, mostly because I neglected to shake the damn basket every five minutes, because ain't nobody got time for that.
If you like succulent asparagus, you would think my Parmesan asparagus was a fail, but we loved it. I tossed the asparagus with seasoned salt, a wee bit of oil, and grated Parmesan cheese. Cooked it at prolly 400F for prolly about 10-15 minutes. It came out with the tips absolutely crunchy.
#4 Daughter, the amazing Sara Marian, doesn't care for asparagus, but she loved these! The tips were her favorite. I was like, "Duh." She's so not into asparagus, she didn't realize the tips are pert near everybody's favorite. She's so cute.
