Glad you like it!

I had room, because, with my renovation, I specifically had the builder re-do my pantry closet shelves.  He took out the wire shelving, and put in solid wood shelves that are the full depth of the closet, and the one at waist height, is extra tall, for all my bulky and tall appliances.  My IP, blender, waffle iron, and now, air fryer are all right there, easy to grab, and its close to the island.

I have a tea cart in the dining room where my IP and waffle iron live (and ice cream maker, but that needs to go back to the basement for the winter.) So I could put an air fryer there. But I still think I use it more than I would since it's incorporated into the toaster oven. I can use it for things I don't really need to air fry, but are just going to be a little better that way. If I had really wanted an air fryer, it might be different, but for me, it was just a cool add-on to my toaster oven, not something I really thought about using much.

I did try empanadas--air fried 3 and baked the rest. The verdict was that the baked ones were better. They cooked too fast in the air fryer, so would have burned if I let them go too long and were more doughy, whereas the baked ones were more crispy. I've only had empanadas in a restaurant once and they were soft, so I'm not sure how they're really supposed to be, but my recipe calls for an egg wash and baking and they come out a little crispy on the outside.

Ive only play with empanada dough.  I bought frozen discs, and put taco leftovers in them, and air fried them.  They were pretty crunchy, in my trial, in the air fryer. I think Id prefer softer.  But, Im off carbs for awhile, lol, so, wont do those again.  Ds wouldnt try them, and dd doesnt like tacos. 🙄. My hope was theyd be an easy snack or meal for Ds.

I think the toaster oven combo sounds great, especially now that you have good reviews of it.  We use our toaster oven almost daily.  If one or both die, Id look at your model.  I feel like we never get more than 2-3 years out of our toaster ovens.  I get cheap ones because of that.  I tried a better one, and it still died after a few years.

I REALLY want an Air Fryer, I had one last year and returned it because I was sort of confused on how to use it.

Does it give instructions for certain items somewhere?  And I missed it?

I love any kind of lemon with chicken. That recipe looks good.
