maybe we can revive this question that didn't get much attention since there are many versions out there . I have debated back and forth for a long time but haven't done it. my last small appliance was a spiralizer that I donated to Goodwill a while ago. did not like the results from it and the amount of vegetables wasted because things don't always spiralize well. so an air fryer? I would use for mainly vegetables. is it faster or superior to regular oven roasting. what I'm reading doesn't make that clear. I ordinarily do not eat any fried foods. sautéed is a bit of olive oil yes, but deep fried? never at home or restaurants. Any thoughts?
Everything I read (including cook's illustrated/america's test kitchen) says that the oven does nearly the same. Results are not always great...so I haven't thought about it much. I'm still debating the electric multicooker, LOL.

I guess this is not the hottest of hot topics. I'm neutral on it. if its not faster or better, do I want another separate appliance taking up space? maybe not.
I can't imagine what Id use an instant pot for. not on any list. I do a little chicken, that's it. I very rarely cook a large amount of beans. it always sounds like people cook meaty things in it. I d put it in the same category as a new blender. old one still works well enough for the couple times a year it gets used. infrequent use. takes up space.
