contemplating an air fryer - do you recommend
100%. I cooked chicken breasts with a spicy polenta crumb for the first time a few weeks ago. Came out great. Roast veg in 20 minutes. Chips. Potato gems. Meatballs. Falafel. Very little oil required. I usually save the sun dried tomato oil and use a teaspoon or two if needed.

Only thing you should watch out for is the size. You need a bigger one unless you like doing batches. We have a 1.2kg Phillips and it's great.

It's actually the second one we've had as wifey set the first one on fire. The machine was not at fault in any way though..

Thought it was a gimmick when the wife bought one but it goes alright. Chips and gems in particular, just way better than the oven.

Oh and it is amazing for reheating pizza and garlic bread. It comes out better than when delivered in 3 minutes. Tried putting a burger in it too to reheat it. Worked pretty well and toasted the outside of the bun.

I second (or third) the recommendation for air fryers. I don't think I could live without mine now.

There's still some stuff I prefer the taste of cooked in a normal oven, but the air fryer takes a fraction of the time for everything else. I mainly use it for homemade sweet potato fries.

So a price search shows me they are quite expensive Beerfish - do you have a brand recommendation
I can only recommend the one I have but that one was recommended by choice. I'll have a look later and let you know what other ones they recommend.

Otherwise maybe watch the xmas/ny sales? I use it quite a lot so it's justified itself price wise. Awesome not to have to wait for a whole oven to heat up.

When you find the price add 20% and divide by 12 so i can calculate my convince coefficient

Okay so Choice also recommends a brand called Bellini which retails for $99 yet scores a 74% against the one I have at 75% so it sounds like good value. One of the biggest knocks is the size though, a claimed 800g against mine which is a claimed 1.2kg.

Target has them.

Anyone tell me what kind of area ward A2 is in Joondalup hospital?
Its a general ward.. I've had a couple of terrible nights sleep there. Nurses were nice. The view was leafy.

The floor is the linoleum style that your child inside wonders if you threw a bottle of olive oil down the hallway maybe you could slide the entire length of it.
