Sample Recipe: Mexican Stuffed Potatoes
Serves 4 / Prep Time: 15 Mins / Cook Time: 40 Mins / Bake Temp: 392°F
1. Scrub the potatoes, poke with a fork, and spray the outsides with oil. Place in the air fryer (leaving room in between so the air can circulate) and bake for 30 minutes.
2. While the potatoes are cooking, prepare the Cheesy Sauce and additional items. Set aside.
3. Check the potatoes at the 30-minute mark by inserting a fork into them. If they’re very tender, they’re done. If not, continue to cook. (As potato sizes vary, so will your cook time—the average cook time is usually about 40 minutes.)
4. When the potatoes are getting very close to being tender, warm the Cheesy Sauce and the beans in separate pans.
5. To assemble: Plate the potatoes and cut them across the top. Then, pry them open with a fork—just enough to get all the goodies in there. Top each potato with the Cheesy Sauce, beans, tomatoes, scallions, cilantro, and jalapeño and avocado, if using. Enjoy immediately.

Not all the recipes here use the air fryer for the main cooking; for example, Lemony Lentils with "Fried" Onions stews the lentils as you would do in a pot, but garnishes with air-fried onions. This isn't a bad recipe and it's a riff on dal with "tempering" (lentils Indian-style with a topping of onion, spices and oil.)
The recipe book has kale chips, air-fried taco chips and if I had to name a style of cuisine, I'd say it tends to the Southwest and Mexi-American rather than international though there is a Panang curry bowl. Again, the air fryer's job is to make crunchy toppings on your typical stews and such. Not all the recipes are crunchy toppings and the book is trying to give you uses for that big football-helmet sized appliance on the counter, but it's basically air baking, so anything you can bake in a small round pot or more or less deep fry, you can do in the air fryer. Tofu with coating does well--when you do this in a fryer it absorbs a lot of oil and air frying makes sense.
The dessert section is very full, so if you want baked goods baked in the air fryer there are many delights such as gooey lemon bars and raspberry streusel cake, even cookies and there is a breakfast cobbler with berries and oatmeal in the breakfast section. I'm not a big eater of baked goods and sweets. And if I'm making Apple Crisp I'm doing it in the oven or even toaster oven but wouldn't limit myself to the air fryer because I'm making enough for company.
Most of these recipes I wouldn't bother to make because it's just extra work to get out the air fryer for a crunchy topping and I'm not baking in it, no real reason to do that. And a lot of the recipes are adjective-loaded, which is a writing thing that bugs me "Cozy Apple Crisp." "De-Light-Full Caramelized Apples." I think adjectives should be used for describing food the way you use salt: just a pinch and not a scoopful. Otherwise it gets a bit twee.
Pro: Makes tasty dishes probably the entire family would like, because of texture and flavor
Con: a bit of work and you can do many without the air fryer so why bother?

I would really like to order a new one, but fear the whole batch will be faulty
