Ramekin coated with spray oil or butter and filled with mini omelettes or just a regular egg with a couple of slices of bacon alongside for an easy breakfast.
Full chicken under 1kg in my regular one cooked at 185* we’re nicely cooked after 50 minutes
1kg joints of smoked or unsmoked bacon same temp for roughly the same length of time, perfect for slicing for sandwhiches works out cheaper and much better than packet or deli ham
Sirloin and fillet steak come out very well, I was cooking for a few minutes on 170* and then 200* depending on the size and how you like steak.
Chips roast potatoes and jacket potatoes are great, i normally steam for a while then pat dry and use a spray oil (not on the jacket) before cooking.
Pork and lamb chops are divine
Homemade breaded chicken fillets and tenders come out well
Salmon fillets also come out nice but make a little tray from foil to keep the juices from dripping down
It’s all trial and error really and took me a while to get adventurous with it, I initially bought it just for healthy chips
Have fun and don’t be shy to try new things

It’s been that price a while, I picked one up last week after my regular sized one packed up, very pleased with the upgrade and it’s well worth the money
The build quality is far better on the xl

You won't be sorry, you'll never fry a sausage or a rasher again.

Agreed, only thing is you have to wash after every use, otherwise the basket will go to sh Ask me how I know!
In relation to build quality, I think the 9230 is more robust. That said, both together are superb. 2yrs down the road, both used every day, and still going strong. Oven is redundant.

Aldi kitchen degreaser in orange spray bottle does a great job keeping it clean.

I use a piece of tinfoil in the base every time with the corners folded in to help save on amount of cleaning but yeah it's vital to clean the basket and the sooner after use the better.

It's no big deal though, just put it in the dishwasher after a quick scrub.

An awful lot easier and more pleasant than having to clean a frying pan.

I've seen two different Air Fryers in Lidl in the past couple of weeks, I think there was one for €25 and one for €50 - are they worth trying?
