OK, y'all inspired me. I dug out the air fryer, got it cleaned up, and right now I've got some frozen crinkle cut fries in it... Sprayed 'em down with some oil out of wifey's little pump up oil sprayer (so it's probably olive oil) and in the air fryer @ 400° for 18 minutes or so...

We'll see....

The microwave or the house?

Luckily, just the microwave.
I wanted to just defrost a couple of ravioli, which was a bad idea to begin with since there was nearly no moisture in them, set it for what I thought was 10 seconds, but was probably 10 minutes, and left the room.
Smoke alarms went off, when I walked towards the kitchen, I couldn't see the kitchen for all the smoke.
I had no idea what it could have been, since there was no fire, thought it might be electrical in the wall, and called 911.
By the time I opened all the windows and let out all the critters, I realized what might be the cause... when I opened the microwave, this is what I found

No more microwave for me! I'm assuming it did catch fire and burn, but the small sealed space contained it and it burned itself out when it ran out of oxygen.
I've gotten along just fine without it... and have A LOT more counter space.

Glad to see you had better results. Also, cook times will vary depending on how much food you put in and whether or not the air fryer was already hot.

We got a toaster oven that air fries. I like it much better than the older pot type we’ve been using
How do you clean yours? That was the big problem with one like that I tried.

‘Bucket’ and screen from mine can go in the dishwasher, although, I usually just hand wash, since it is pretty easy.

Thanks.

Seems like the instructions for all of them give cooking times about 1/3 too long. We got a toaster oven that air fries. I like it much better than the older pot type we’ve been using.
Just guessing, attorneys probably had a hand in that to ensure people weren’t eating undercooked meat. You know, because some people aren’t smart enough to not eat something that is raw inside.

We've had a Secura 4qt air fryer for 3 yrs.It cooks anything that's frozen faster and better than baking. It makes the best hotdogs that snap in 5 or 7 mins. depending on the size. I'm surprised that nobody has posted anything about chicken wings, air fryers makes the best chicken wings/drumettes in about 24 mins.I put the chicken in a bowl and season them well w BBQ rubs, stirring them to get the rub all over them.Plowboys Yardbird rub is my favorite.I cover the bowl w plastic wrap and hold in the fridge for 4 to 8 hrs.Set the temp to 360 and fry them for 12 mins. then turn them and fry them another 12/14 mins. 20210108_214456.jpg
You cant see but the chickin is boiling under the skin

chicken thighs are good too, about 30/40 mins.

The screws from the bowl to the basket and the handle are pot metal and rust quick.I got some stainless ones @ home depot and fixed that.After frying the wings let the basket/pot cool off and wipe the grease out of the pot and the basket w paper towels.Then put the basket back in the pot, add hot water and dish soap and let them sit a while. Scrub them w a sponge and wash the soap out and it's done, takes about 2 minutes to clean them minus the soak.

If we are going to be using it soon I’ll just rinse out with very hot water to wash away crumbs and oil. If it’s going to be stored then I’ll wash with dawn and water.

I leave my cast iron baking dish in the cooker to cool off then my wife finds it. She has threatened to throw it in the lake lol.
