    Yo. I do have an old toaster oven with a convection baking option though and I’m not ready to replace it. Honestly, I have too much junk in the kitchen already.

    Not only that, I got through 2020-21 without ever hearing of airfryers. Having just looked them up, I can't see that I'd have a use for one.

    I haven’t, but I’m considering getting a slow cooker just because so many recipes in Savory magazine are based around it.

    I contemplated one. We had a larger kitchen, which is what I'd said I needed before I started buying kitchen gadgets. However, I was told they aren't as good at things like doughnuts as a regular deep fryer, so I bought one of those instead.

    Our first flat had a built-in deep fat fryer in the kitchen. When we arrived on moving day, we discovered that the previous owner had removed it (along with all the lightbulbs), leaving a large rectangular hole in the work surface. No great loss for us, given that we'd never have used it. In fact, I got into the habit of reaching down through the hole to lift out bowls and pans from the cupboard below while I was working at the hob.
    But after a while I managed to track down some matching tiles for the work surface, and patched the hole. And then nearly broke my hand by absent-mindedly reaching down through the non-existent hole the next time I was cooking.

    No air-fryer, but we got a new (slightly larger) slow cooker because the control knob on the old one broke. I'd probably have been satisfied turning the remaining shaft with pliers, but not my wife.

    I'd never heard of an air fryer, but know there is no place for it in my kitchen. I'd have to dispose of some other appliance to make room for it.

    I used to use the slow cooker a lot, but less often these days. It was nice coming back from a long field day to a hot meal ready to be devoured.
