We got one a week ago.. it’s still in the box. Is this going to be awesome or just take up space? Should I toss out my trusty crockpot

I went super simple tonight, and just dumped in two frozen chicken breasts, some peppers, and jar of pre-made chicken tikka masala sauce.  Pretty good, and very easy.

I read that as two dozen chicken breasts. First thought. How big is this pressure cooker? Second thought. How big is this family?

We make a great Jambalaya with ours.  This isn't the exact recipe, but pretty close.  Even my picky kids like it, and the spiciness can be adjusted by the amount of creole seasoning you use.

I made a ton of it. will be eating all week. I like it a lot and will make it again. 2 onions, 8 cloves garlic, 3 peppers, 2 celery stalks, two hot smoked sausage round deals (previous five ingredients all chopped up like you would expect, sausage like 1/2 inch rounds), 2 lbs of small dry red beans, two containers of chicken stock, cajun seasoning, pepper, about 50 shakes of crystal hot sauce, threw in some other random off schedule spices but don't remember what. saute the first 5 ingredients in order with some canola oil on the saute setting, then add the rest and set it on high for 45 minutes and let the pressure release on its own. we have the jumbo (8 qt?) instant pot and the above was about maximum what it could hold.

there's a lady from meade on facebook who is selling CBD oil for horses to take for like horse problems or something. the thing is, she's super into horses and rodeos and crap so I think it's legitimately for her horses and to sell to other people for their horses. she always posts stuff like, "does your rodeo barrel horse get anxious before a rodeo or some crap? how about a giant dose of CBD?"

OK, what about air fryers?  Who has one, and which is it?  Tons of people have been telling me they love these things.  I very much like potatoes, and I am trying to watch my figure and like to make "oven fries" (sliced up potatoes baked in the oven).  Word is that these air fryer contraptions are better for that kind of operation.

Hot garbage. It’s a convection oven, not a fryer. Don’t be an enemy of quality.

We actually have an air fryer as well. Love it. I can do 2 large boneless/skinless chicken breasts in about 12 minutes, and they are juicy as hell, with enough browning of the meat for that "seared" flavor.

No, its not the same as tossing it in a pan with oil, or even a cast iron pan. But if you want to eat healthier, with fewer additives (grease, oil, etc) then they can totally be worth it. It's really a matter of what you want from your food.

We have this one currently... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0777RJG6D/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_LhBoCb8XXZK4G

Bed Bath and BEYOND! has one on sale right now that was rated very highly by consumer reports.  I think I'll give it a whirl.  This is very excited.  We live in a gilded age of kitchen technology.

Threw in some frozen chicken pieces, a can of red enchilada sauce, and a can of mild green chilies this afternoon. Fifteen minutes on high. Five minute  slow release. Shredded the chicken in a bowl. Dropped in a couple handfuls of cheese. Then half a cup of chicken in each tortilla shell. Put some sour cream in the leftover broth. Brought it to a simmer. Then ladeled over the dish. Smother in cheese. Baked at 350F for twenty minutes. Sprinkle with chili chowder and red pepper chowder.

Fantastic.
