I tried out my new air fryer today (a Christmas gift from my mom) with some breaded tofu. I didn't have to worry about burning the house down and it was a lot less messy than frying in oil, so that was good. Plus, now I don't have to strain a bunch of oil back into a container after it cools.
It wasn't quite as good as oil fried, but I think that's because I didn't have any oil to spray on it before I cooked it. It's not a fair comparison. I'm sure when I get everything worked out it will taste just as good and be a lot easier.
The tofu I was using was almost certainly past its use-by date, but it was sitting in the freezer part of that time. (Freezing and thawing tofu changes the texture, which you want for some recipes like this one.)
In any case, I look forward to experimenting with the new air fryer.
I've enjoyed my air fryer so much that it bumped the Instant Pot off the counter (I do still use the IP, too, but not as much now that I've got the air fryer).
The date totally doesn't count if it's in the freezer! I've used that reasoning many times (although once it gets freezer burned, there's no bringing it back).
