New toy: Dreo Chefmaker- air fryer + probe + steam injection


Recommended Posts

So I got one of these gadgets just before Christmas: https://www.dreo.com/chefmaker-combi-fryer.  It is a pretty spiffy gadget.  It has got the powerful air circulation of an air fryer, interior and probe thermometers, and a steam injector that can do combi oven tricks. I've been putting it through its paces and am quite impressed with what it can do.  Crispy skin on chicken thighs that are cooked just right at the bone?  Check.  Good browning on the outside of a medium rare lamb roast?  Check. Air fried frozen stuff? Check.  I was drawn to it because it is so much smaller than an APO, and it is less likely to get killed by my well water like my CSO was... 


Worth looking into if you're in the market for a new toy.

Still enjoying our Chefmaker, bought during their Kickstarter campaign and posted here:

We used Chefmaker “sous vide” mode to cook ribeye steak for my husband’s birthday last Sunday.  It was perfect, we couldn’t have achieved the same previously (different in summer when we can finish sous-vide steak outside with a blow torch).  No effort, no mess.  Delighted to have come across this little cooker and looking forward to diversifying from cooking proteins when time allows.
