    I'm not saying it's the same thing, just that the name is too generic thus horrible.

    I have the convection fan thingy in my oven, so can’t I accomplish the air frying that way? It just blows hot air around the foods right?

    Oh, and Instant Pot shits on air fryer.

    Kneel before Instant Pot.

    A normal convection oven blows a little air just to keep it circulating. An air fryer has a high speed fan directly over the food, really circulating the air quickly. Think a hair dryer on high and 400 degrees. I did potato chips in mine and once they got crispy, I could hear them clanging around inside.

    I tried "oven frying" chicken before and it's not nearly the same. Even in a convection oven.

    I used to make signs, screen printing, vinyl and big acrylic sign faces. I was a dumb teenager but I could trim cap faster than any of the ethnics in the shop. Me and the owner of the shops son, who also "worked" there would try to outdo each other with the quality of weed we could obtain. One day I looked around and realized I was wasting my time and just walked out and never looked back.

    You faggots are making this thread gay

    Air fryed some wings
    Coated with House Autry-Texas Pete coating
    2 - 15 minute intervals with a few stirs
    They look and smell pretty good
    Still haven't read the instructions on the fryer

    InstaPot is great but it's a different kind of cooking.

    Fuck that French faggot. I returned mine the first time the spring-loaded 400° doors snapped back on my wrist. And no, it won't do an actual 16" pizza. Not unless you don't mind melting/burning sauce and cheese rubbing up against the walls. It's absolutely not 16" wide. It also had electronic controls that were an abomination for all kinds of reasons. And it cooked really unevenly (back of the pizza burnt before the front was done).

    That being said, I replaced it with the same size Oster model but with a normal door and dial controls for half the price, and a year later it's still great. And no uneven heating issues. But fuck those lying cunts for selling an oven claiming it can cook two 16" pizzas at once when the interior is just a bit over 15" wide. You had one job!

    Exactly, Instant Pot cooks by wonderful flux capacitance, while air fryers hex food with black magicks and witchcraft.

    I still don't know what I'd cook with an Instapot. Is it a super crock pot? Does it make just hot wet food?

    It's a high-tech pressure cooker that's made from space-age polymers, and runs on dilithium crystals.

    It's a pressure cooker that cooks like a crock pot, but 5 times faster.

    And, unlike an air fryer, you don't need to damn your immortal soul to Satan's eternal pits of Hellfire in order to make delicious food with an Instant Pot.

    Depends on what you're cooking.
    Meats come out great when cooked under pressure.

    What's so good about dry food? Who likes dry food? Edgar? Mouth is all dry, likes the dry food.

    Oh, and I've done dry rub baby backs in the Instant Pot that were wonderful. Fall-off-the-bone tender in 40 minutes. Like a murkle... and not carrying an unholy curse of unleashed ancient evil like food cooked in a voodoo air fryer.

    I have an insta pot and an air fryer on my Christmas list. Either I will settle this debate or both appliances will be destroyed.

    I may have to set up a Thunderdome to settle this. I imagine it will prove to be the most vicious and bloody civil war since the Tits Vs Ass thread, but this needs to be settled.

    There can be only one.
