This Question may need the good Lady in your team to help us reach  the right decision.

Our Skipper is currently equipped with,   

  A Gas cooker.  

 Two Plate electric stove. 

A single plate electric induction cooker. 

A Gas Braai.

A Charcoal Braai.

We are  now contemplating getting  some or other small oven, and  are not sure which is more suitable for camping a small conventional oven or a small air fryer ( we are totally uninformed on the Air Fryer ).

Looking forward to all of your constructive advice , guidance and comparisons on this matter

Many thanks and go in safety

 

P. S. We only cook for the two of us.

I cannot say anything about the air fryer but our convection oven is used every day at home and is ALWAYS taken with when camping. Our normal oven is only used for the bigger items that will not fit and drying rusks. 

A major plus is the convection oven does not use a lot of power - normally 1200-1500W. Also meat is more juicy when fried in the convection oven.

Ek het ook na daai airfryers van Homemark gekyk....Milex. Kan hulle ook gebruik as gewone oond. Hulle is klein en lig en oord krag kan hul maklik hanteer

WAARSKUWING:

Kampeer is aansteeklik en verslawend 😁

In al die jare wat ek kamp het ek nog nooit die gebruik van 'n oond nodig gehad of aan gedink nie.

Skaapboud nog altyd in ysterpot op die vuur gaar gemaak. 

Dit is seker 'n geval as ek eendag een kry dat ek my agterent sal skop omdat ek nie lankal een aangeskaf het nie. laughing

If I do long term camping, I will use a small conventional oven. Nearly use it daily at home. We also have a small air fryer, use it about three times when we got it and resort back to the oven, much more versatile.

We always take our Philips air fryer  with , its brilliant and easy for potato chips (  no  oil ),chicken etc and warming up in general.Never used a oven.

Its a bit heavy on current about 2100 watts

we found the air fryer is not all what its made out to be and consequently sold ours.

two roads diverged in a wood and i took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.

My view is that there are air fryers and “air fryers”. The price is normally an indication of what you can expect.

We bought a cheap one, and was disappointed. My son bought one about five times the price of ours, and they use it to cook the most wonderful dishes. 

Be who you are and say how you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.

an air fryer is either you love it or you hate it item.

As my daughter is making food for a living she hate them.

Myself prefer a conventional oven.

Kom ons gaan kamp

Interesting. When my wife cooks in the convection oven a school friend would always compliment on how juicy the food is. Well when his wife uses her convection oven he doesn't like the taste and wants her to use a normal oven.

Badger - a word of advice - RTFM - "Read The Flippen Manual"  or LDBB - "Lees Die Bliksemse Boek" before using your air-fryer. My wife never reads the instruction manual and our first meal - fried fish - was a disaster. It is important to allow the fryer to pre-heat before putting the food in. Pre-heat time and cooking time is dependent on food being cooked, so follow the instructions. Also, it is not a deep fryer - only a light sprinkle or spray of oil is required. I am sure you have made a good choice.
My daughter also has one as says it makes the best toasted sandwiches.

Been there--done it. ( Talking about the bathroom )
