The convection fans quickly and evenly circulate hot air throughout the interior of the fryer to make your favorite foods crispy without being submerged in oil. (If you’re interested in learning even more, we have more detailed explanations of how air fryers work and how they compare to baking.
While countertop air fryers are small and can heat quickly, full ranges require longer heat times and may take longer to crisp up foods than small air fryers. So if speed is top of mind, an oven with an air fryer setting might not be as appealing as a regular countertop appliance.
We began by testing for our full review of the Frigidaire Gallery FGGH3047VF gas range. ADVERTISEMENTUnsurprisingly, the 43 ounces of French fries that were cooked on Standard mode were mostly still frozen.
The fries that were touching the bottom of the baking sheet (the baking sheet couldn't fit all the fries in a single layer and were piled on top of one another in some places) were crispy on one side, but were otherwise mushy, slightly oily, and uncooked. While the fries on the outer edge of the tray were burnt, that’s a good indication that heat is flowing efficiently through your fried foods, even if it's moving a little too efficiently at the tray's edges.
After running the same tests on the electric Frigidaire Gallery FGEH3047VF, we achieved even slightly better results. According to the manual, the Air Fry mode works on everything from frozen tater tots to fresh chicken wings.
We were impressed by the overall performance of the gas FGGH3047VF, and the air fry results of the electric FGEH3047VF point toward a well-designed oven. If speed is your ultimate concern, we still recommend choosing a countertop air fryer or convection toaster oven.
The half-pound of shrimp the recipe calls for fit nicely in the bottom of my fryer ’s basket, with room for the air to circulate around and brown it. Patted dry and air -fried for about 30 minutes, they finished with skin that was deliciously brown and crispy.
And dismantled, the basket takes up about half of the top drawer of my dishwasher, so I found myself handwashing it most of the time. The fan that circulates the air in the fryer and chips everything up so perfectly is on the loud side, at least in my model.
The Philips website says the fan noise can be up to 65 decibels, comparable to a vacuum cleaner. I followed the directions that came with the fryer and peeled and chopped the potatoes, soaked them in cold water and dried them, then air -fried them with a little oil and salt for 15-20 minutes, shaking them once or twice as they cooked.
As a side dish for two people, I could easily fit plenty of fries in my air fryer. I think just about any “sturdy” vegetable would air -fry up nicely with a little of oil and salt, and I could see that throwing a few veggies in the air fryer would make for a fast, easy side dish with just about any dinner.
It needed a few minutes to heat up, but it was hot by the time I was finished slicing the sprouts and tossing them in a little oil and salt. And the trays I used for cooking the sprouts only take as much room as two dinner plates in my dishwasher.
A few months back, I went to a kitchen appliance trade show and was surprised by the large number of manufacturers coming out with air fryers. “Enjoy great tasting fried food” reads the cover recipe booklet for Philip's new Air fryer XXL, a lovely sounding idea.
I called in one of Philips new XXL models, which is both large and a good representative of the best of the industry's offerings. It arrived in the morning and, lacking other options in my fridge and pantry, I made baked potatoes for my wife Elisabeth and me.
Second, the fan that that runs whenever it's on is loud, effectively sucking the conversation or ambient music right up into the ether. Let's be clear, though: an air fryer would be flattened in a mano a mano with a real Escalator and its big tub of hot oil.
Few of us deep-fry at home, though, as it involves that huge amount of hot oil which you have to deal with after dinner. The air fryer fries were nicely browned and crisp, but a bit hollowed out, seemingly at the expense of some pleasant creaminess inside.
While all three specimens were reminiscent of special treats' mom would make for my sister and me when we were kids, and she didn't want to cook, they were in no way as good as real French fries. With a bit of tweaking, like preheating the sheet pan for the oven version, I guessed I could bring each of those home-cooked numbers up a point, but none of the fries I'd made were terribly compelling.
Elisabeth checked at the grocery store near my house and after flipping through a bin of chickens, she couldn't find one smaller than 3.5 pounds. Considering it's an organic market and those birds tend to be smaller than the typical Oven Suffer Roaster, this was disconcerting.
In my relatively tiny oven, I perched the larger bird on a bunch of vegetables: onion quarters, whole carrots, and fennel. When I pulled the oven chicken out, I put the veggies in the roasting pan up by the broiler for a quick bit of extra browning.
The idea is that you're supposed to cook it all in batches, a detail that subtly pops up on the very last line of the recipe. The recipe starts out right, marinating chicken thighs in buttermilk for hours before dredging them in flour, and dropping them into the air fryer.
Taking a bite, the meat was surprisingly juicy, but the crust was horrible, with a peculiar texture that, while sloughing around between my teeth, reminded me of shale. Railed against the heretical idea of ranch dressing being served alongside his flats and brunettes.
“If someone ever gives you ranch dressing,” he exclaimed before downing a shot of Jameson's, “you throw that shit against the wall!” Nothing flew against the wall in my test kitchen, but attempting fried chicken in an air fryer was miserably unworthy of reproduction.
Instead, if you're into the air -frying idea, save the potentially significant amount of money you'd spend on one (high-end models can cost $400 or more) and upgrade to a convection feature the next time your real oven croaks. The marketing materials for the scores of companies that make these hot- air blowers will tell you that they are a great way to cook that cuts down on fat.
Better to eat well most of the time then go to your favorite fried chicken place on your birthday, or do it up at home with a couple of liters of canola oil and a Dutch oven.
