pressure cooker or air fryer?

which would you choose and why?

It would only be used when family are up, joints of meat in winter and maybe some finger food in summer?
Including veg and anything else you dish up for a family day.

Thank you

I use my slow cooker more than my air fryer. I love doing gammon and beef . I brown my joints of meat especially beef and throw it in with a couple of stock cubes and itís so tender .

I have a Ninja Foodi - I use it multiple times per week (I rarely use my oven now!)

It's actually a pressure cooker and air fryer (and slow cooker, dehydrator) so would do you for all eventualities?

If you're anything like me, you will end up using it for pretty much everything!

OMGosh off to look.
Didn't even know I could combine lol. Have a slow cooker, which I do use about 5 times a year, doesn't sound a lot, but suits me fine for me to keep.
Thank you

I have a Tower air fryer but wouldnít have another one, I have to constantly open it to shake chips or turn them over with spatula, if I donít then the top browns nicely but underneath it is a white soggy mess. I have gone back to cutting up chips and putting them on a tray, spray with fry light and putting them in the oven, much easier plus only one tray to wash up.

We have both. Got an instant pot which we absolutely LOVE! And same with the air fryer, the reason we have both is that the instant pot is frequently cooking something we want the chips to go with, hence getting the Ninja didnít really make sense for us with trying to have a bit of concurrent activity going on 😂

Absolutely love making pulled bbq chicken in the Instant pot 😍

For chips / roasties etc I swear by my Acti Fry. I had one before I bought my Foodi and I was intending to get rid of it and just do chips in the Foodi, but they are not the same so I kept my Actifry. It stirs the chips so they all cook evenly It also means I can cook chips / roasties in the acti fry and the rest of the meal in the Ninja.

I have got the Ninja Foodi too. I don't know how I lived without one before now!
I can cook a delicious full chicken in less than half an hour. these days I just pressure cook it first then put on the air crisper to get it crips and brown. The meat is so juicy and tender and falls off the bone.
I use the slow cooker too if I am going out and want something hot ready for when we come in.

I have a Ninja foodie which cost a fortune, takes up lots of counter space and I never use except when I run out of room in the oven. I researched for ages before buying it, too but I just find other ways of cooking easier. My slow cooker I love and make lots of things in it.
