Anybody got one?  I'm thinking about buying one because I hate my conventional oven and most of the time, am heating a monster oven up for a few veggie tots.  Takes longer to heat it up than to cook.  Watched a video that had a guy cooking in one (not sponsored by the cooker) and it looked handy except it was tripping the breaker in his old house.

Just got an air fryer lid for the instant pot, if that's what you mean.  Roasted cauliflower in 12 minutes.  Supposedly it dehydrates too.  Jury is still out - really loud, doesn't hold much, and easy to burn yourself.  Tofu will be the real test; if successful will allow retirement of the evil Fry Daddy.  (Update: just clocked it at 1400W, so yeah I can see that helping to trip an old breaker in a busy kitchen.)

For toaster ovens I've been happy with the panasonic infrared dealy, but it doesn't do convection.

For baked sweet potatoes, you simply can't beat 3 hours at 275F in a conventional oven.

This is what the youtube guy cooked his turkey breast in.

Only there is a different and more spendy model that heats from the bottom also and sounds like it might be the one to get.  It has a higher temperature capability.

My wife picked up one a couple months ago. It does a great job with corn on the cob. Works well for pre-cooked frozen snacks, such as tater tots and onion rings. Looks like a couple baking potatoes would fit in the bin. No popped breakers yet.

They seem to be quite popular as they are now sold out.  Maybe after the holidays...

I love my Breville - I honestly have not used my oven except once in 20+ years.

I also got a Breville.  About a year ago, and haven't used the big oven since.

I think it was worth getting the large size.  I got lucky and got $100 off on sale.  There seemed to be a noticeable drop in durability/quality of the machine at the lower price points.  Just small enough to still fit comfortably on the countertop.

Seems like a tool optimised for heating frozen convenience foods.  See this thread for more: http://www.nwhikers.net/forums/viewtopic.php?p=1202657#1202657

We have one of these, which seems to be what you're looking for.  Really great and fast (no preheating necessary) for cooking small things, like fish sticks or tater tots for my kids. My complaint about it is that it's not that good at plain toasting.  The toast come out very uneven.

Uh nooo.  Perhaps that's what you eat, but I don't.

Heh.

My wife just got an air fryer from work. They got a fancy catalogue to choose what ever they want, but everybody picked the airfryer. Only tried it on bacon and French fries so far, but it worked pretty good.

My favorite kitchen gadget is the sous vide wand. I think we use it more then anything but still usually finish on the grill or something.

I'm thinking veggie tots.  They take a high temperature to cook so I'm waiting for the Elite version of convection oven.

It feels wasteful to heat up a full size oven for five veggie tots.

I made some zucchini fries in my foodi cooker using the air fryer and they came out great.
