Update September 17, 2016: I air-fried falafels in this cooker. Delicious! I'll never go back to deep-fried falafels (which defeats the purpose of a healthy vegetarian substitute for meat). The falafels become brown and crispy, and that smell of "falafels cooking" fills the kitchen, without the vat of oil! Cook the falafels at 370, for 10 minutes; no need to turn them, because they'll stick to the grate until fully cooked.
I fried some chicken breast. Indeed, crispy on the outside, moist inside. I'll have to adjust temperature and time, because I cooked them too long. Cleaning: After several uses, the cooking surface became coated with a sticky residue (the very little oil that I did use stuck to the "non-stick" surface). I called NuWave, and was advised to use a non-abrasive brush to clean the residue off. I only had a hard-bristle cleaning brush in the kitchen, so I used that, and the residue scrubbed off easily enough.
This cooker does falafels and french fries just the way I like them. If healthy cooking is a priority for you, you'll probably find endless uses for this cooker.
Update September 22, 2016: Just did french fries from scratch again, but this time used the double-cooking method that restaurants use. I cut several Yukon Gold potatoes into french fry shapes, soaked them in water for half an hour to remove excess starch, then dried on a kitchen towel. I used a tablespoon of oil to coat the fries, and salted them just slightly. Placed in the air-fryer at 360 for the first-cook phase (they were still limp, not fully cooked through). Then I cooled the fries, placed in a ziplock bag, and froze them. After they were fully frozen, I cooked one serving of the frozen fries at 360 for 8-10 minutes. I checked on them halfway, and they "looked like" golden-brown french fries; salted them slightly again at this stage. They turned out delicious, much better than my deep-fried french fries from scratch! I'll never go back to deep-frying french fries. Previous deep-fried french-fry attempts: I could never produce McD's crispiness, and the fries would go soggy after a half-hour anyway. (McD's always double-cooks; their fries are delivered to the restaurants frozen. I thought it would be a hassle to double-cook, but not with this air fryer.)
Update October 12, 2016: Uploaded a photo of my buttermilk-brined, air-fried chicken (breaded chicken thighs, 30 minutes at 360). Next time, I'll place foil over the chicken at 20 minutes, to prevent burning. I'll never go back to KFC! Tastier (more wholesome-tasting) than KFC. No "cardboard" chicken taste, and so much healthier than deep-fried! Air-fried tastes better, in my opinion. Very easy to cook, just brush the brined, breaded chicken with a tablespoon of oil and place in the air fryer. When the chicken goes into the air-fryer, I never thought they would turn out "looking" like real fried chicken, or tasting so wholesome. Update October 14, 2016: Tried this recipe again, with the foil after 20 minutes. The foil swooshed up into the heating element! So rather than using the foil, I turned the chicken, so that the underside would cook. Results were great! Both sides cook evenly, and become crispy, if you turn the chicken pieces.
Update October 14, 2016: Uploaded a photo of my double-cooked french fries. I used russet potatoes, instead of the Yukon Gold. The russets turned out crunchier!
Update December 3, 2017: This cooker does burgers to go with the fries, in a healthy way. Mix seasonings into the ground beef, and form into burgers. Place in the cooker, and cook at 360 for about 10 minutes, depending on the number of burgers (only two or three will fit at one time). Check the burgers at 8 minutes; without checking the internal temperature, I'll stop the cooking when the burgers are domed and "look" mouth-watering. When cleaning the cooker afterwards, there might be globs of unhealthy-looking drippings beneath the grate in the pan. You might have consumed the unhealthy globs inadvertently, if you had cooked the burger on the stovetop! My kitchen no longer fills with smoke when I cook burgers!
