I think I'll just get a regular air-fryer instead. I don't think even an Rtx 3080 with a 10900k is good enough to have crispy chicken. I curious to see the kfcconsole just for the laugh. Anyone remember the 5.25 bay toaster?

Do air fryers make food taste good? I read they are horrible... my Dad has been considering getting one though... any tips for us to get good taste out of it?

Something like this just equals greasy CPU's with a roll.

My sister has one, the taste is ok, not bad but "ok". I dont eat greasy things or dont add very much grease to any food or dont add some extra grease when I cook some eggs to the pan so it wont stick.
She mostly got it to make chicken wings since her husband loves chicken-wangs.

Some still spray a bit of grease on the food before frying

You bet it will keep your chicken hot, as it uses intel. :D

On a side note, did AMD give too high a price? When it comes to consoles, AMD takes the pie (or whatever KFC serve). Or maybe KFC were afraid that Ryzen gives Colonel Panic?

Just look at Apple's Trash Bin (tm) and the Cheese Grater (tm).

We have an air fryer. My mom uses it for fries and chicken strips/nuggets. It definitely makes the stuff less greasy and nice and crispy. As far as taste goes, I can't help there, as I don't really notice much of a difference...

That's plucked up for sure.

I mostly drink water, I gave up any soda over 10 years ago, I'll still drink a Pepsi or Sprite maybe once every 5 months.

There are also those of us who can't have sugar and have to drink diet if we want a soda.

you can always make your own, Sparkling water+your choice of flavoring and sweetener.

Then it would be better to avoid it completely.
True. But that can be said if many, many things. As far as vices go, there are far worse ones.

True, but the convenience of simply being able go grab a can of soda without having to alter it further is worth it to me. There are enough options with stevia and other sweeteners that it's a lot easier than it used to be to find decent options.

Do air fryers make food taste good? I read they are horrible... my Dad has been considering getting one though... any tips for us to get good taste out of it?

They're convection ovens, actually, and do a somewhat (or hugely, depending on the model) worse job at it, too. Try roasting something that was supposed to be deep fried on a convection oven, that's what these misnomed "air fryers" do. That's what it tastes. Commercials that claim you can't tell "air fried" fries apart from actual frying are full of it. They're considered horrible because... well, they are.

And your mileage may vary, but most air fryer fans I've met think that frying things (actually frying them... on a pan, or a deep frier) is slightly worse, health-wise, than driving on the highway while snorting cocaine. With a loose feral cat inside the car. On a flat tire. Blindfolded.

People's standards as to what constitutes edible frying may be a bit skewed, in accordance to their thoughts on the alternative .

any tips for us to get good taste out of it?

Use it as a foot stool while eating actual food, prepared in the manner it was supposed to (be it roasting, frying, sauteing, whatever). Air fryers are garbage.

PS: And by the way I'm not one of these "real men eat unhealthy" machismo bs guys. I'm all for healthier eating. These things produce... edibles (barely) that are NOT fried and do not taste like they were fried. They're small convection ovens, not fryers. I can call my scooter a two wheeled airplane, too, but that won't make it any more of an aircraft.

nonsense to get people talking, like we are doing here, marketing tactic to make us subconsciously want KFC soon.

a good marketing tactic, since we are heading towards page 3... and youtube famous stars are talking about it.

I actually called up my local KFC (literally, about a quarter mile, or 402 meters from the house) and I used a serious tone-of-voice to ask when the KFConsole would be available along with if it could be picked up locally - at the restaurant. The employee had to get the manager and I asked the same question again. I got a moment of silence. Then the manager asked me what I was talking about. I proceeded to tell her about the new console that the company has made and if the executive, marketing, design, and logistics teams were on board with selling it for real.

Needless-to-say, I got another moment of silence. I told her not to worry about it and that I'd find out by calling corporate.

I don't know y'all...y'all think I was being a little unreasonable?

This thing explains why I chose a 65W 5600X CPU and eventually a RX 6700 or 3060 non-ti. At one point my PC was so hot I had to put it in the next room and run the wires though the wall. Even with air conditioning the thing caused an intolerable hot spot. I'm done with high tdp parts, never again.
